Phoenix, AZ (PRWeb) March 12, 2007 -- Political talk show hosts at Progressive Talk Phoenix 1480 AM are being joined by new on-air host with a celestial political beat. The Nova M Network flagship station has launched Exopolitics Radio, a weekly program reporting on "Exopolitics" or Extraterrestrial politics, broadcast every Saturday at 8 PM MT (10 PM ET; 7 PM PT).

Exopolitics is a new political science for outer space. The Associated Press reported in January 2006 that "Exopolitics" had been nominated for 2005 Word of the Year. According host Alfred Lambremont Webre, "Exopolitics is the science of relations between Earth and other intelligent civilizations in the Universe." Progressive Talk Phoenix 1480 AM's company motto is "We need to talk."

Exopolitics Radio's expert guests will, each week, deal with in-depth public affairs developments in Exopolitics, such as:

• New Energy- New, fuel-less, energy and propulsion systems, based on Extraterrestrial principles, may have been developed using U.S. taxpayer funds and may now be in use on large classified spacecraft. If released into the civilian economy, these New Energy systems could replace all petroleum and nuclear-based energy, triggering an era of prosperity and transformation of the permanent war economy into a sustainable, peaceful Space Age society.
• Disarmament in Outer Space - Former Canadian Minister of defense Paul Hellyer has stated that the U.S. Space Command is now planning to place weapons in space, under the cover of "Star Wars," with the intent of starting an inter-stellar war with advanced Extraterrestrial Civilizations now visiting Earth. In fact, there is no evidence these advanced, ethical ETs are hostile. "Star Wars" may be the latest corporate welfare hoax for the defense industry. Advanced ETs appear to be here to help Earth transition into membership in organized Galactic society. In October 2006, the UN General Assembly nations voted 166-1 in favor of a Space Preservation Treaty banning all weapons in space (The USA was the sole dissenting vote).
• Disclosure - Following the Disclosure Project National Press Club Press Conference in May 9, 2001, which brought together over 20 high level military-intelligence and governmental witnesses to the Extraterrestrial presence, disclosure initiatives are now active in the U.S. Congress, Canada, Brazil, the European Parliament, the United Nations and elsewhere.
• Diplomacy - Updates on a Decade of Contact including public interest diplomacy with Off-planet cultures now visiting Earth, for mutual benefit.

Exopolitics Radio Host Alfred Webre has a long background in Exopolitics. As a Futurist in at Stanford Research Institute (SRI), he was Principal Investigator of the proposed 1977 Carter White House Extraterrestrial Communication Study. In 2000, Alfred released an online treatise that was to become Exopolitics: Politics, Government And Law In The Universe (Universebooks), a book credited with founding the field of Exopolitics. Alfred is International Director of the Institute for Cooperation In Space (ICIS), based in Vancouver, BC, Canada and Vilcabamba, Ecuador.

Exopolitics Radio guests include distinguished Exopolitics researchers and activists, including Dr. Steven Greer (Director of the Disclosure Project); Stephen Bassett (Director of X-PPAC, the Extraterrestrial Activist Community Political Action Committee); Dr. Michael Salla (Former American University Professor and Director of the Exopolitics Institute); Paola Harris, MA; Dr. Carol Rosin, President of the Institute for Cooperation in Space (ICIS) and Dr. Rebecca Hardcastle of Phoenix, AZ.

Exopolitics: 'Fastwalkers' lock sensors on Rush Limbaugh

'Fastwalkers' lock sensors on Rush Limbaugh
[Peace, Space]

By Judi McLeod

Friday, March 2, 2007

The "fastwalkers" and folk who want to fight Global Warming with Steven Spielberg ETs, have their sensors locked on to radio giant Rush Limbaugh.

On yesterday's show Limbaugh laughed at former Liberal Canadian defense minister Paul Hellyer's notion to force governments, worldwide to disclose and use secret alien technologies obtained in alleged UFO crashes to stem climate change.

Today Fastwalkers' fast talker Victor Viggiani tried to have Canada Free Press (CFP) head off Limbaugh.

"Judi, I need to give you a heads up on this. The Hellyer thing and Fastwalkers has hit the Drudge Report. Millions of people and tons of reporters are on this as I write," wrote Viggiani. "Give me (a) call so this thing can go out in the right way."

Viggiani is head of Zland Communications, the publicity agent for Hellyer and Fastwalkers.

According to their latest media communiqué, "Fastwalkers reveals the truth about UFOs and Extraterrestrials that has been suppressed and hidden for centuries."

" 'Fastwalker' is a code word created by NORAD (North American Air Defense Command) to classify (UFOs) unidentified flying objects which approach our Earth from space and enter our atmosphere. It has been reported that from its subterranean facility deep inside Cheyenne Mountain, Colorado, USA, the Air Force NORAD facility tracks a rough average of 500 of these "Fastwalkers" each year."

For folks whose heads are still not reeling that Titanic producer James Cameron found the tomb of Jesus Christ, the Canadian screening debut of FASTWALKERS takes place in Toronto next Wednesday.

Back to Hellyer and his elixir for Earth scorched by global warming.

"I would like to see what (alien) technology there might be that could eliminate the burning of fossil fuels within a generation...that could be a way to save our planet," Hellyer told the Ottawa Citizen.

Alien spacecrafts would have traveled vast distances to reach Earth, and so must be equipped with advanced propulsion systems or used exceptional fuels, he told the newspaper.

ET and Company would fall on their pointed little heads laughing if they heard the hullabaloo Canadian Kyoto architect Maurice Strong, Oscar-winning Al Gore and Canadian global warming guru and CBC television host David Suzuki are trying to cause in getting carbon credits for global warming.

Space aliens, who likely would have little time for space cadets, would laugh longer than an amused Limbaugh who said yesterday, "This is just as credible as "carbon offsets" It makes just as much sense as carbon offsets to fight global warming. You have to understand this. The best way to understand, is this is not strange at all when thrown into the mix of everything else these people believe. This is just a teaser for the Global Warming Stack. There's much more in it. (Laughing). I'm stunned. I literally am stunned. I shouldn't be, but I am, because it's so clear o me that this whole thing is a hoax and bogus. I'm stunned that so many people have bought into it. I understand the techniques, but it's frightening to me how many people buy this lock, stock and barrel."

Hellyer wants governments to come clean on what they know as "some of us suspect they know quite a lot, and it might be enough to save our planet if applied quickly enough," he said.

Two years ago, Hellyer was accusing President George W. Bush of taking pot shots at unsuspecting space aliens.

"The United States military are preparing weapons which could be used against the aliens, and they could get us into an intergalactic war without us ever having any warning," Hellyer said.

"Blame it all on the Bush administration, which Hellyer says has 'finally agreed to build a forward base on the moon, which will put them in a better position to keep track of the goings and comings of the visitors from space, and to shoot at them if they so decide,'" wrote CFP.

In 2004, Hellyer announced in a public speech at the University of Toronto "UFOs are as real as the airplanes that fly over your head."

Following the U of T address, Hellyer joined forces with three Non-governmental organizations to ask the Parliament of Canada to hold public hearings on a new kind of politics—Exopolitics, the kind that stars ETs.

We don't know if those are the kind of politics practiced by Al Gore, but we do know that one of the lobbying NGOs, the Vancouver-based Institute for Cooperation in Space (ICIS) through its international director, undertook a 1977 Extraterrestrial Communications Study for the White House when Jimmy Carter was President.

The Canadian Exopolitics Initiative, presented by the lobbying organizations to a senate Committee panel hearing in Winnipeg in March 2004, is also proposing that the Government of Canada undertake a "Decade of Contact".

The proposed Decade of Contact is "a 10-year process of formal, funded public education, scientific research, educational curricula development and implementation, strategic planning, community activity, and public outreach concerning our terrestrial society's full cultural, political, social, legal and governmental communication and public interest diplomacy with advanced, ethical Off-Planet cultures now visiting Earth."

Meanwhile, they wouldn't have to send for ET to solve global warming if only Al Gore would turn his lights off.

UFO science key to halting climate change: former Canadian defense minister

UFO science key to halting climate change: former Canadian defense minister

Wed Feb 28, 1:04 PM ET

A former Canadian defense minister is demanding governments worldwide disclose and use secret alien technologies obtained in alleged UFO crashes to stem climate change, a local paper said Wednesday.

"I would like to see what (alien) technology there might be that could eliminate the burning of fossil fuels within a generation ... that could be a way to save our planet," Paul Hellyer, 83, told the Ottawa Citizen.

Alien spacecrafts would have traveled vast distances to reach Earth, and so must be equipped with advanced propulsion systems or used exceptional fuels, he told the newspaper.

Such alien technologies could offer humanity alternatives to fossil fuels, he said, pointing to the enigmatic 1947 incident in Roswell, New Mexico -- which has become a shrine for UFO believers -- as an example of alien contact.

"We need to persuade governments to come clean on what they know. Some of us suspect they know quite a lot, and it might be enough to save our planet if applied quickly enough," he said.

Hellyer became defense minister in former prime minister Lester Pearson's cabinet in 1963, and oversaw the controversial integration and unification of Canada's army, air force and navy into the Canadian Forces.

He shocked Canadians in September 2005 by announcing he once saw a UFO.

UFOs to halt climate change?

Ottawa - A former Canadian defense minister is demanding governments worldwide disclose and use secret alien technologies obtained in alleged UFO crashes to stem climate change, a local paper said on Wednesday.

UFO's Topped ex-Prime Minister's Agenda / Lester Pearson's fascination with flying saucers

UFO's Topped ex-Prime Minister's Agenda / Lester Pearson's fascination with flying saucers

Ian MacLeod, The Ottawa Citizen / Canada.com

original source  |  fair use notice

Summary: In the spring of 1966, in the midst of one of his government's biggest crises, prime minister Lester Pearson turned his attention to flying saucers.

In the spring of 1966, in the midst of one of his government's biggest crises, prime minister Lester Pearson turned his attention to flying saucers.

Cabinet documents from the time reveal the embattled prime minister was intrigued by repeated reports of unidentified flying objects in the night skies over southern Ontario, Michigan and other Great Lakes states.

The UFO sighting craze reached new heights when heavyweight boxer George Chuvalo, fresh from his famous "Battle of Toronto" match against Muhammad Ali, told reporters he and his wife saw unexplainable objects over Toronto the night after his March 29, 1966 loss to the world heavyweight boxing champion, then known as Cassius Clay.

At the time, Mr. Pearson and his government were licking their own wounds. For the preceding month, the Liberals and John Diefenbaker's Conservative opposition had been trading heavy blows in the Commons over the government's handling of the case of George Victor Spencer, a Vancouver postal clerk accused by the RCMP, but never charged, of being a low-level Soviet spy.

Under relentless questioning in the House by Mr. Diefenbaker and other critics, flustered Liberal justice minister Lucien Cardin lashed out by revealing the previously secret case of Gerda Munsinger, a German prostitute who had an affair with associate defence minister Pierre Sevigny during an earlier Diefenbaker government.

The parliamentary rancour that followed nearly brought the Liberal government to collapse and is considered by some historians to be one of the most noxious periods in modern Canadian parliamentary history.

Mr. Pearson told his cabinet it was "imperative" for the Liberals to end debate on the Munsinger issue, which threatened "to exacerbate an already dangerous and destructive Parliamentary situation."

He soon agreed to a royal commission into Canada's first Parliamentary sex scandal and a separate commission of inquiry into the handling of the Spencer case. Mr. Pearson also suggested a new debate on the death penalty, a hot subject as two Quebec separatists were on death row.

Mr. Cardin, who had been vehemently opposed to a Spencer inquiry, threatened to quit, taking with him other Quebec members of the Liberal caucus. There was media speculation that Mr. Pearson, too, would resign.

On the morning of April 5, 1966, with the espionage inquiries soon set to begin, Mr. Pearson met with his cabinet. But instead of discussing Mr. Spencer or Ms. Munsinger, he said he wanted ministerial briefings on the UFO phenomenon, according to newly uncovered cabinet meeting minutes at the National Archives.

Paul Hellyer was minister of national defence at the time. In an interview yesterday, he did not recall Mr. Pearson's UFO directive.

"It's quite possible that we provided him with a briefing or gave him the information that we had, which was not very extensive," he said. "If he followed up, that's what would have happened. But he sometimes raised things, then didn't bother following up. There were a lot of things cooking in those days."

Indeed. That very night, the Commons defeated a government motion to abolish capital punishment. The following day, Mr. Pearson unveiled a plan to make the federal public service bilingual.

Alien technology the best hope to 'save our planet:' ex-defence boss
Governments must reveal what they know, says Paul Hellyer

Wednesday, February 28, 2007

Not a real alien, Crystal Graham is shown wearing an extraterrestrial
costume in a 1997 contest at Roswell, New Mexico, where a UFO
allegedly crashed in 1947.

A former Canadian defence minister says be believes advanced
technology from extraterrestrial civilizations offers the best hope to
"save our planet" from the perils of climate change.

Paul Hellyer, 83, is calling for a public disclosure of alien
technology obtained during alleged UFO crashes -- such as the
mysterious 1947 incident in Roswell, New Mexico -- because he believes
alien species can provide humanity with a viable alternative to fossil
fuels.

Mr. Hellyer has been a public UFO advocate since September 2005 when
he spoke at a symposium in Toronto. But with concern over global
warming at an all-time high, and Canadian political parties struggling
to out-green one another, Mr. Hellyer said governments and the
military have a responsibility to "come clean on what they know" now
more than ever.

"Climate change is the No. 1 problem facing the world today," he said.
"I'm not discouraging anyone from being green conscious, but I would
like to see what (alien) technology there might be that could
eliminate the burning of fossil fuels within a generation ... that
could be a way to save our planet."

Mr. Hellyer will be discussing his views at the upcoming screening of
a new UFO documentary called Fastwalkers, in Toronto's De La Salle
College Theatre on March 7.

Mr. Hellyer, a former Liberal cabinet minister, political turncoat and
one-time leadership candidate for the Liberal and Conservative
parties, said UFO researchers have amassed undeniable evidence that
aliens have visited our planet. Due to the distance such spacecrafts
would have to travel, UFOs must be equipped with some kind of advanced
fuel source or propulsion system, he said.

"We need to persuade governments to come clean on what they know," he
said. "Some of us suspect they know quite a lot, and it might be
enough to save our planet if applied quickly enough."

Michael De Robertis, an astronomer at York University and and member
of the Ontario Skeptics Society for Critical Inquiry, said there is
"little or no compelling evidence" that we have been visited by beings
from another planet.

"If (Mr. Hellyer) wants to broker some kind of communication, that
would be great," he said. "But I think the probability that there is
someone out there for him to make contact with is highly improbable."

But if aliens have indeed visited Earth, there is no doubt their
technical knowledge could benefit humanity, Mr. De Robertis added.

"To have travelled hundreds of trillions of kilometres, interstellar
visitors would, at a minimum, require a civilization that is thousands
-- if not millions -- of years ahead of our own. One would imagine
they went through their own fossil fuel era, and that they solved it
and didn't go through some kind of pollution holocaust.

"There is no doubt they would have different solutions, different
fuels and different energy sources."

Fastwalkers claims to feature more than 30 witnesses testifying to the
reality of alien visitations, including former military and government
intelligence personnel.

Paul Hellyer has a unique solution to global warming and the gas
shortage -- ask aliens what makes their saucers fly
By MIKE STROBEL

Al Gore is the poster boy for global warming.

He sure is. Look at him.

There's a man who has never run for a bus.

All that gushing, honey love spread over him by other rich and famous
people at the Oscars worries me, too. Watch for a new hole in the
ozone 20 klicks above the Kodak Theatre.

Now the radio says Gore's mansion in Tennessee devours $30,000 a year
in hydro and gas, at a clip 20 times the U.S. average.

If this emperor has no clothes, why should he? His thermostat is set
on high.

So if not Al Gore, who will save us from drowning in glacial melt and
keep beach resorts from Nunavut?

I find one answer in the lakefront office tower where my mom happens
to hang her shingle.

Hon. Paul Hellyer. Remember him? Defence minister under Pearson.
Liberal leadership contender. Trudeau's transport minister. The
Belinda Stronach of his day. Grit. Tory. Grit. He even toyed with the NDP.

'OPEN YOUR EYES'

These days he dallies with another airy acronym. UFO.

"Open your eyes," he tells me. "Two days of research and you'll
believe it too."

I will ask the United Airlines workers who saw a big, metallic Frisbee
over Chicago's O'Hare airport last November.

I will not ask the air traffic controller who quipped: "To fly 7
million light years to O'Hare and then have to turn around and go home
because your gate was occupied is simply unacceptable."

What have UFOs to do with global warming, or the GTA gas shortage?

They're the cure, says Hellyer, 83. Here's how he sees it:

When a UFO crashed in Roswell, N.M., in 1947 (oh, stop being such a
cynic), it offered a techno treasure trove.

From that wreck, and 77 others, the military gleaned hardware that was
out of this world.

The micro-chip, for instance. Bullet-proof vests. Fibre-optics.
Tupperware. (Just kidding). Lasers. Star Wars weaponry.

"And particle guns."

What?

"High voltage. They fire something like controlled lightning."

Aha. Ray guns.

"Yes. The U.S. air force probably has them by now."

The big prize, though, is what makes those saucers fly.

Imagine a vehicle that does 30,000 km/h or hovers on a dime,
regardless of whether Esso has any gas.

NO GREENHOUSE GAS

Best of all, no exhaust. No stench. No smog. No greenhouse gas. No ice
cap melt. No drowned continents. No Al Gore?

The U.S. must have figured out the aliens' propulsion by now, says
Hellyer.

Likely it is zero point energy, an idea floated by Einstein, which is
infinite, pollution free and exists all around us.

Think of it as you queue for rationed gas.

The perfect fuel.

(Or is it? Why do flying saucers keep crashing?)

"That's why I've gone public. I want the Americans to tell us if they
have it. Or how close they are.

"The people of the world have the right to know, too. To save this
planet."

And if the Americans haven't figured it out?

"Instead of trying to shoot down those guys, we should invite them
down to tell us what we need to know."

Which guys?

"The aliens. I'm told there's more than one species."

How do we get them to come?

"I'm told there have been face-to-face communications."

I wait for him to cackle or make monkey sounds or jump on the desk of
his lakeview office. But Hellyer has unwavering, sane eyes, pale and
clear. He is 6-foot-3 and every inch a gent.

He will be on hand next Wednesday for the Toronto screening of the UFO
documentary Fastwalkers, so called for a military code name. (See
exopoliticstoronto.com).

Hellyer has never seen a UFO. "I've never seen the Taj Mahal either,
but I know it's real."

Maybe he is right. Maybe oil execs are not the only slimy green men in
the energy business.

Beam me up, Scottie.

Anything's better than a buck a litre.

UFO Technology Could Provide Climate Change Solutions: Former Canadian Defense Minister Paul Hellyer

UFO Technology Could Provide Climate Change Solutions: Former Canadian Defense Minister

Download this press release as an Adobe PDF document.

After a retired U.S. Air Force General confirmed to Hon. Paul Hellyer that the 1947 Roswell UFO crash took place, Hellyer went public about what he knows of the cover-up. He says that he spoke out because the policy implications affect every nation on Earth. He suggests that the world community should find ways to establish contact with advanced civilizations to find out what we can learn from them that will help us save our planet, save our civilization from coming global environmental challenges caused by climate change.

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) February 25, 2007 -- A former Minister of National Defense of Canada believes that advanced technology from extraterrestrial civilizations could help all nations put an end to our addiction to oil, and reduce greenhouse gases.

Hon. Paul Hellyer will be further discussing his views at an upcoming screening of a new documentary exposing an alleged UFO cover-up in Toronto on March 7, 2007.

Hellyer first went public about UFOs when he spoke at the Toronto Exopolitics Symposium in September 2005. He stated that a retired U.S. Air Force General confirmed to him that the 1947 Roswell UFO crash took place and originated from an advanced humanoid intelligent extraterrestrial civilization.

A video of his presentation can be seen online: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-8731502304852399080

Hellyer is not new to controversy. While serving as Defense Minister under Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson, the famous Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, he oversaw the controversial integration and unification of the Royal Canadian Navy, Canadian Army, and the Royal Canadian Air Force into a single organization, the Canadian Forces.

Despite the fact that some UFO reports came to his desk while Defense Minister between 1963 and 1967, Hellyer says he was too busy to further investigate, or to pay much attention.

Files from the Canadian government confirm that five government departments have been involved in collecting data and conducting investigations on UFOs since 1947: the Department of Transport, Department of Communications, Department of National Defence, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the National Research Council. For more information, see: http://www.collectionscanada.ca/ufo/index-e.html

Hellyer says that he only started taking the issue more seriously after watching Peter Jennings' ABC News Prime Time two hour special on UFOs in February 2005.

Jennings reported that the U.S. government and military had put together the Robertson Panel and Project Blue Book, in the 1950s, as a public relations effort to diminish the hysteria over UFOs at the time, and not as a serious investigation. See: http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/Primetime/story?id=528712&page=1

Jennings interviewed more than 150 witnesses and scientists, including one of the leading theoretical physicists in the world, Dr. Michio Kaku. Kaku said that Einstein's theory of relativity left us with the possibility that alien civilizations could have transcended the fabric of space and time through a "wormhole," also known as an "Einstein-Rosen Bridge." See: http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/Primetime/story?id=528724&page=1

As per Webster's dictionary, a "wormhole" is defined as a "hypothetical topological feature of spacetime that is essentially a 'shortcut' from one point in the universe to another point in the universe, allowing travel between them that is faster than it would take light to make the journey through normal space."

"Maybe there's nothing there," said Kaku. "However, on that off chance that there is something there, that could literally change the course of human history. So I say let this investigation begin."

Indeed, Hellyer decided to let the investigation begin after he watched Jennings' show. He read the controversial book "The Day After Roswell" by the late Col. Philip Corso, a former Pentagon official who served directly under General Arthur Trudeau in the 1960s. Corso later worked for and befriended the late U.S. Senator Strom Thurmond, a longtime friend of the Bush family.

In a July 1997 interview on the Art Bell Coast to Coast AM radio show, Corso provided extensive direct testimony of his top secret role in helping to reverse-engineer UFO technologies retrieved from the 1947 Roswell UFO crash. To listen to this interview online, visit: http://video.google.ca/videoplay?docid=-7384959849716081467&hl=en-CA

In late summer of 2005, Hellyer contacted a retired U.S. Air Force General, a family acquaintance, and was told that undeniably, Corso was telling the truth. He was also told that there was more to the story but that it was still highly classified, and he could not yet disclose it.

Hellyer felt compelled to go public about what he had learned so far, and he did. His September 2005 disclosure triggered a countless amount of newspaper coverage and an overwhelming number of interview requests from international media outlets. He appeared on well known radio and TV shows, including a December 2005 primetime interview with Tucker Carlson on MSNBC that can be viewed online: http://video.msn.com/v/us/v.htm?g=73f6c962-ac45-47df-ae8c-7e1a15a4970f&f=copy

On May 9th 2006, Hellyer held a press conference in Toronto with Dr. Steven Greer of the Disclosure Project (http://www.disclosureproject.org/), a nonprofit research project with over 400 government, military, and intelligence community witnesses testifying to their direct, personal, first hand experience with UFOs, ETs, ET technology, and the cover-up that keeps this information top secret.

Relating to climate change and extraterrestrial civilizations' advanced non-polluting technologies, Hellyer said:

"What I want is what a lot of the members of the Exopolitics Institute want, is to try and make contact and say: 'What can we learn from you that will help us save our planet, save our civilization, reduce some of the disparity between the wealthiest people in the world and the poorest, and give us more abundant life for everyone here."

To view the online video of this press conference, see: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=8964281348675417592

In June 2006, Hellyer was the keynote speaker at a world peace conference in Hawaii. Speaking about climate change, advanced technology retrieved from extraterrestrial civilizations, and the lucrative oil industry, he said:

"The financial stakes couldn't be higher, but they still pale in comparison to saving the planet for the benefit of future generations. There is no doubt that the adjustment in moving away from oil dependency would be unprecedented. But it doesn't have to be accomplished overnight... By international agreement it could be done over 10, 20, or even 30 years, and that would be fast enough to save the planet from disaster."

To view a video of his presentation online, see:
http://video.google.ca/videoplay?docid=-8234971229972074108&q=paul+hellyer

Hellyer will be further addressing the implications of disclosure during a scheduled talk at the coming screening of a new documentary titled "Fastwalkers" in Toronto on March 7, 2007, at 7pm, at De La Salle College Theatre.

He will be joined by Robert Miles, Producer of the documentary, and Stephen G. Bassett, founder of the Paradigm Research Group -- Washington DC. For more information, visit: http://www.fastwalkers.com/TorontoPremiere.htm

The film features over 30 witnesses testifying to their direct knowledge of the reality of UFOs and the cover-up, ranging from former military and government intelligence personnel, to major airline pilots, nuclear and optical physicists, and others. It also explores some of the spiritual and religious implications of the disclosure of extraterrestrial life.

For Many at O'hare it was a UFO, For The FAA a 'Hole-Punch Cloud'-Flying Saucer Hovering Over Ohare

For Many at O'hare it was a UFO, For The FAA a 'Hole-Punch Cloud'
Flying Saucer Hovering Over Ohare
By Leslie Kean
Sacramento Bee
2-25-07
During one late afternoon at Chicago's bustling O'Hare Airport, pilots, managers and mechanics at the United Airlines terminal saw an odd, disc-shaped object hovering silently overhead, just below the dense cloud layer.

A pilot announced the sighting over the radio; a United taxi mechanic moving a Boeing 777 heard radio chatter about the craft and saw it; so did a pilot waiting to take off who opened the cockpit windscreen to get a better view. Minutes later, the wingless vehicle shot straight up at an incredible speed and disappeared, leaving a crisp hole through the clouds with blue sky visible at the top.

It was definitely not an airplane, witnesses said of the Nov. 7 incident, many of them shaken by what they saw.

"I immediately called our operations center to confirm the sighting, and the FAA was contacted while I drove to the other concourse to talk to the witnesses," a United management employee wrote to the National UFO Reporting Center.

On Jan. 1, the Chicago Tribune published the story, by transportation reporter Jon Hilkevitch, which received more than a million hits on the Tribune's Web site, more than any story in the site's history. "The witness credibility is beyond question, and safety was a big concern," says Hilkevitch, who has interviewed dozens of witnesses.

The O'Hare UFO incident even had its day on national television networks. CNN interviewed a nervous United employee, filmed in shadow so he wouldn't be recognized. So far, all witnesses have remained anonymous.

When Hilkevitch began his investigation, the FAA and United Airlines denied knowing anything about the incident, but taped calls and other evidence revealed their communications about the sighting at the time it occurred.

At first, the FAA attributed the incident to some kind of weather phenomenon, and United Airlines advised its employees not to talk about it, according to the Tribune.

"If this had been a plane, it would have been investigated," Hilkevitch says. "The FAA treats the smallest safety issue as very important."

NASA aviation expert Brian E. Smith, a former manager within NASA's Aviation Safety and Security Program, says, "The safely implications of any vehicle operating at low altitude over a major airport outside the authority of air traffic control are obvious. Managers should want to hear about such vehicle operations before they become accidents or disasters."

FAA spokesperson Tony Molinaro says the "absence of any kind of factual evidence" precludes an investigation. "There was nothing on radar."

To explain the witnesses' reports, he offered his best "guess." They may have seen a "hole-punch cloud," he said, which is in "a perfect circular shape like a round disc" and has "vapor going up into it."

These unusual natural cloud holes form only at below freezing temperatures, according to climatologists. It was 48 degrees at O'Hare that afternoon.

John Callahan, Division Chief of Accidents and Investigations for the FAA during the 1980s, says it's not at all surprising that the O'Hare UFO was undetected on radar.

Radar technology cannot always capture objects at extremely high speeds. A hovering object wouldn't necessarily show up either. "If it did, it would be a small dot, and air traffic controllers would not give it much concern," Callahan says.

The government response to the O'Hare incident is predictable, says Callahan, who conducted an investigation into a 1986 UFO sighting over Alaska. "The FAA will offer a host of other explanations, as if wearing a blindfold. It's always something else so it can't be what it is."

Official policy spells out FAA disinterest in reports of anomalies. The agency's Aeronautical Information Manual, providing the fundamentals required for flying in U.S. airspace, states that "persons wanting to report UFO/Unexplained Phenomena activity" should contact an organization such as NUFORC.

If "concern is expressed that life or property might be endangered," it says, "report the activity to the local law enforcement department."

Sometimes, pilots and crew report these incidents anyway. Richard Haines, a former NASA scientist who is head of the National Aviation Reporting Center on Anomalous Phenomena, has collected thousands of reports by aviators and aviation professionals of unidentified aerial phenomena inconsistent with known aircraft or nature. More than 100 of these involve safety hazards caused by an aircraft's proximity to unfamiliar flying objects or inexplicable brilliant lights.

Given the number of airline personnel reporting this unknown object hovering over a major airport, how could our government not be interested? What about national security? Or passenger safety? Or just plain scientific curiosity about an unexplained phenomenon?

He believes in UFOs. Do you?

He believes in UFOs. Do you?
by Dhananjay Khadilkar
Saturday, February 17, 2007  22:58 IST

MUMBAI (BOMBAY) INDIA - Have you ever seen an Unidentified Flying Object (UFO)? A trick question, isn’t it? If you respond with a ‘yes’, chances are people will say you’re bonkers.

It’s safer, then, to assume that any suspicious looking thing moving in the sky is some exotic military aircraft and pay no serious attention to it. But hold on, there is a gentleman out there who believes that not only do such UFOs exist but that the encounters experienced on earth are intentional leaks by advanced extraterrestrial civilisations.

Meet 65-year-old Alfred Webre, author, lawyer, space activist and futurist, who has an unflinching belief in the existence of intelligent extraterrestrial life forms. He was also the principal investigator of a civilian scientific study of extraterrestrial communication undertaken by the White House, Pentagon and Stanford Research Institute (SRI) during Jimmy Carter’s regime.

Webre, who was in Mumbai recently, spoke exclusively to DNA on the subject that has fascinated mankind for years.

As an appetiser, Webre lists the compelling reasons behind his belief. “After studying the huge database compiled on UFOs and following interactions with a number of air-traffic controllers, military, intelligence and Federal aviation personnel, there can be no doubt that many UFOs have been non-Earth objects,” he says.

As an example of the presence of extraterrestrial activity, Webre quoted an unusual phenomenon that was experienced by Soviet Space Agency officials.

“The then Soviet Union had sent a space probe to Mars’ satellite Phobos. However, preliminary verifications using photographs showed that the probe was mysteriously shot down. High ranking Russian officials and President Eisenhower’s advisors believed that Phobos was an artificial satellite,” Webre added.

Besides, Webre has been motivated by the Drake equation which hypothesises that the number of civilisations could be more than one and the string theory which talks of extra dimensions and parallel universes.

The UFO phenomenon though is not restricted to mere sightings. “Contact by UFOs is a grassroots education program for humanity,” Webre says. He further adds that there are technologies like anti-gravity and time travel in the possession of certain governments that have been transferred by extraterrestrials.

Webre is a proponent of the Exopolitics model which states that the Earth is an isolated planet in the midst of a populated universe.

“We live in a populated universe in which our planet has been quarantined and this is no random event. The quarantine was lifted in 1947, the year from which the UFO phenomenon began in full force around our planet,” Webre says.

As per the quarantine hypothesis, Earth’s humanity is not yet sufficiently evolved to be included in the universal society. In this model, life-bearing planets such as earth are members of a collective universe that operates under universal law.

This model states that life was planted and cultivated here under the stewardship of more advanced societies, in accordance with the over-all principles of universe ecology.

So when will this quarantine end? Webre believes the militarisation of outer space by humans may be the single most important factor preventing the end of Earth’s isolation from civilised space society.

“Humanity may not be permitted into Universe society without an absolute ban on warfare and weapons in a jurisdiction ruled by the standards of a common universe government,” he concludes.

French space agency to publish UFO archive online

Genimageaspx French space agency to publish UFO archive online
Fri Dec 29, 2006 9:16 AM ET

PARIS (Reuters) - The French space agency is to publish its archive of UFO sightings and other phenomena online, but will keep the names of those who reported them off the site to protect them from pestering by space fanatics.

Jacques Arnould, an official at the National Space Studies Center (CNES), said the French database of around 1,600 incidents would go live in late January or mid-February.

He said the CNES had been collecting statements and documents for almost 30 years to archive and study them.

"Often they are made to the Gendarmerie, which provides an official witness statement ... and some come from airline pilots," he said by telephone.

Given the success of films about visitations from outer space like "E.T.", "Close Encounters of The Third Kind" and "Independence Day", the CNES archive is likely to prove a hit.

It consists of around 6,000 reports, many relating to the same incident, filed by the public and airline professionals. Their names would not be published to protect their privacy, Anould said.

Advances in technology over the past three decades had prompted the decision to put the archive online, he said, adding it would likely be available via the CNES website http://www.cnes.fr/.

Exopolitics: The coming Galactic Superwave

VANCOUVER, B.C. - This article summarizes the evidence upon which to hypothesize that the Asian Tsunami of December 26, 2004 (Boxing Day) may have been caused by gravity waves  which accompanied a gamma ray burst caused by the explosion of a Neutron Star in the Constellation Saggitarius, some 45,000 light years from Earth.  The article also summarizes analysis of whether the December 26, 2004 event may be an indicator that a cyclical Galactic Superwave event, recurrent every 13,000 and 26,000 years, is overdue and may occur precipitously in the near term future.  The Mayan Calendar's current TUN, or organic unit of Galactic time, ends on December 21, 2012.

According to one analyst, "both our species' recent history and that of the crust of our planet, have been both gradual and catastrophic. However, the catastrophes are of first and most immediate concern, since they relate to periodic "superwaves" or volleys of cosmic rays from the Galactic Center itself. The Galactic Center is an incredibly superdense region only about as big as the sphere enclosing Jupiter's orbit: it is about 23,000 light-years away in the constellation of Sagittarius."

Others analyze the 13,000 and 26,000 year cycles of the Galactic Superwaves in the context of spiritual and prophetic texts. Under the Mayan Calendar, this TUN, or organic unit of Galactic time is scheduled to end and a new TUN is scheduled to begin on December 21, 2012.  According to the "Prophetic" frame of perception, the December 26-27, 2005 Gravity Wave/Tsunami was a Warning that humanity should move out of a permanent warfare economy into a peaceful, sustainable, cooperative, Universe-oriented Space Age society, seeking to integrate with Universe society. 

This observor writes: "What could be coming from the sky to earth that the Star People are symbolized above being in between? There is only one thing, that even Plato said descends from the heavens after long periods of time like a pestilence. It has a modern name, given by the scientist that has researched this phenomena, Dr Paul LaViolette. It is called: A Galactic Superwave.

"Stanford had said years back: But there shall come a sign that is a warning. This is related also, in part, to the energization of the ionosphere of the earth. In it, or related to it, there shall appear an "apparition" that will symbolize the way in which men have turned to materialism and to selfishness - in a sense, to death. It shall symbolize the choice that is represented in that recorded of old, "In this day I stand between the living and the dead." That may be seen of all men. Still, by jaded mind, science shall be inclined to dismiss it as natural events and phenomena. But it shall be symbolic, in a sense, of the judgment of the earth, of the karmas, the retribution to come in the earth, that is mind created.  So then, science misses the point behind the event?"

In this light, the development of Exopolitics at this juncture in human history seems fortuitous, "just in time." (See: EXOPOLITICS: POLITICS, GOVERNMENT AND LAW IN THE  UNIVERSE, available online at: http://www.filamentbookclub.com/) The Exopolitics model postulates the Earth resides is a populated, organized Universe, operating under Universal law, with forms of Universal governance, and mediated by the processes of Universe politics amongst its constituent civilizations.  Exopolitics provides an institutional and educational bridge for integrating Earth into Universe society.    Is one central reason for the outreach of the UFO phenomenon since 1947 to prepare human society for this integration, knowing that the stress of a cyclical Galactic Superwave event would occur by 2012, hypothetically?  If there is any truth to this hypothesis, then Exopolitics is the discipline that human society requires to implement that integration - politically, socially, legally, constitutionally, ethically, and Spiritually.

In fact solutions to the ecological, social, and personal stress caused by phenomena such as global warming and possible Galactic Superwaves may lie in an Exopolitical future, in which we in human society decide to integrate other spiritually advanced Off-Planet cultures now in the Earth's environment and willing to integrate with us.  Two specific programmes proposed by Exopolitics are (1) A Decade of Contact in the form of an open period of public education, science, community participation, and media/communications about our populated Universe and (2) A Star Dreams Initiative for public interest diplomacy with Off-Planet Cultures designed to establish the infrastructure for our integration into Universe society.

It has not been determined to a certainty that Galactic Gravity Waves caused the December 26, 2004 Tsunami and the many Earth Changes we are witnessing at this time, and which are documented in this article.  Nor do we know for a certainty when any Galactic Superwave will strike with the next 10 years, be that on March 6, 2005, as one observor hypothesizes, or before December 21, 2012, or even in this Century.

But we do know enough just in the articles and Links set out here that we must  transform to a peaceful Space Age society. Is the Galactic Superwave a form of the War Against the Asteroids, another strategic deception operation to derail humanity away from transforming the permanent warfare state?  That is doubtful - The papers below are based on science, and an Exopolitical strategy of reaching out to Universe society seems healthy, sane, ethical and Agape-based, not a strategy  based on deception.

The Life Work of Paul LaViolette
http://www.etheric.com/LaViolette/LaViolette.html

PAUL A. LaVIOLETTE, PH.D, is author of The Talk of the Galaxy, Earth Under Fire, Genesis of the Cosmos (Beyond the Big Bang), Subquantum Kinetics, and editor of A Systems View of Man. He has also published many original papers in physics, astronomy, climatology, systems theory, and psychology. He received his BA in physics from Johns Hopkins, his MBA from the University of Chicago, and PhD from Portland State University and is currently president of the Starburst Foundation, an interdisciplinary scientific research institute.

Paul LaViolette has an ongoing interest in metaphysics, mysticism, and music.

He has served as a solar energy consultant for the UN, Greek government, and Club of Rome Goals for Mankind Project and has also consulted Fortune 500 companies on ways of stimulating innovation. Research he conducted at Harvard School of Public Health led him to invent an improved pulsation dampener for air sampling pumps. Related work led him to develop an improved life-support rebreather apparatus for protection against hazardous environments and for which he received two patents.
Recognized in the Marquis Who's Who in Science and Engineering, Dr. LaViolette is the first to predict that high intensity volleys of cosmic ray particles travel directly to our planet from distant sources in our Galaxy, a phenomenon now confirmed by scientific data. He is also the first to discover high concentrations of cosmic dust in Ice Age polar ice, indicating the occurrence of a global cosmic catastrophe in ancient times. Based on this work, he made predictions about the entry of interstellar dust into the solar system ten years before its confirmation in 1993 by data from the Ulysses spacecraft and by radar observations from New Zealand. He also originated the glacier wave flood theory that not only provides a reasonable scientific explanation for widespread continental floods, but also presents a credible explanation for the sudden freezing of the arctic mammoths and demise of the Pleistocene mammals. Also he developed a novel theory that links geomagnetic flips to the past occurrence of immense solar flare storm outbursts.

He is the developer of subquantum kinetics, a novel approach to microphysics that not only accounts for electric, magnetic, gravitational, and nuclear forces in a unified manner, but also resolves many long-standing problems in physics such as the field singularity problem, the wave-particle dualism, and the field source problem, to mention a few. Moreover based on the predictions of this theory, he developed an alternative cosmology that effectively replaces the big bang theory. In fact, in 1986, he was the first to cast doubt on the big bang theory by showing that it makes a far poorer fit to existing astronomical data when compared to this new non-expanding universe cosmology. The subquantum kinetics cosmology also led him to make successful predictions about galaxy evolution that were later verified with the Hubble Space Telescope.

Dr. LaViolette is credited with the discovery of the planetary-stellar mass-luminosity relation which demonstrates that the Sun, planets, stars, and supernova explosions are powered by spontaneous energy creation through photon blueshifting. With this relation, he successfully predicted the mass-luminosity ratio of the first brown dwarf to be discovered.

In addition, Paul LaViolette has developed a new theory of gravity that replaces the deeply flawed theory of general relativity. Predicted from subquantum kinetics, it accounts for the electrogravitic coupling phenomenon discovered by Townsend Brown and may explain the advanced aerospace propulsion technology utilized in the B-2 bomber.

He is the first to discover that certain ancient creation myths and esoteric lores metaphorically encode an advanced science of cosmogenesis. His contributions to the field of Egyptology and mythology may be compared to the breaking of the Rosetta Stone hieroglyphic code.

Galactic Cosmic Ray Volleys: A Coming Global Disaster
http://www.etheric.com/GalacticCenter/Galactic.html

"Galactic core outbursts are the most energetic phenomenon taking place in the universe. The active, quasar-like core of spiral galaxy PG 0052+251 (Figure 1-a), for example, is seen to radiate 7 times as much energy as comes from all of the galaxy's stars. Most of this is emitted in the form of high energy cosmic ray electrons accompanied by electromagnetic radiation ranging from radio wave frequencies on up to X ray and gamma ray frequencies.

"A study of astronomical and geological data reveals that cosmic ray electrons and electromagnetic radiation from a similar outburst of our own Galactic core (Figure 1-b), impacted our Solar System near the end of the last ice age. This cosmic ray event spanned a period of several thousand years and climaxed around 14,200 years ago. Although far less intense than the PG 0052+251 quasar outburst, it was, nevertheless, able to substantially affect the Earth's climate and trigger a solar-terrestrial conflagration the initiated the worst animal extinction episode of the Tertiary period.

"The effects on the Sun and on the Earth's climate were not due to the Galactic cosmic rays themselves, but to the cosmic dust that these cosmic rays transported into the Solar System. Observations have shown that the Solar System is presently immersed in a dense cloud of cosmic dust, material that is normally kept at bay by the outward pressure of the solar wind. But, with the arrival of this Galactic cosmic ray volley, the solar wind was overpowered and large quantities of this material were pushed inward. The Sun was enveloped in a cocoon of dust that caused its spectrum to shift toward the infrared. In addition, the dust grains filling the Solar System scattered radiation back to the Earth, producing an "interplanetary hothouse effect" that substantially increased the influx of solar radiation to the Earth. Details of this scenario are described in Paul LaViolette's book Earth Under Fire,(1) in his Ph.D. dissertation,(2) as well as in a series of journal articles he has published.(3­8)

"LaViolette's research suggests that the Sun also became highly active as dust and gas falling onto its surface induced extreme flaring activity. Together with the radiation influx from the Sun's dust cocoon, this caused the Sun's corona and photosphere to inflate, much as is observed today in dust-choked stars called "T Tauri stars." These various solar effects caused atmospheric warming and inversion conditions that facilitated glacial growth which brought on ice age conditions. On occasions when the solar radiation influx to the Earth became particularly high, the ice age climate warmed, initiating episodes of rapid glacial melting and continental flooding. There is evidence that one particularly tragic solar flare event occurred around 12,750 years ago during a period when the Sun was particularly active. This involved the release of an immense coronal mass ejection which engulfed the Earth and induced a mass animal extinction.

"Dr. LaViolette, who is currently president and chief researcher of the Starburst Foundation, was the first to demonstrate that cosmic rays from a galactic core explosion penetrate far outside a galaxy's nucleus to bombard solar systems like our own residing in the spiral arm disk. He coined the word "galactic superwave" to refer to such a cosmic barrage. He has shown that galactic superwaves recur at long intervals and arrive at Earth's doorstep without warning because they travel at near light speed.

"Galactic superwaves are a recent discovery. During the early 60's astronomers began to realize that the massive object that forms the core of our Galaxy (the Milky Way), periodically becomes active.(9) The cores of all spiral galaxies cycle through a similar phase. During its active period, our galactic core spews out a fierce quasar-like barrages of cosmic rays, with a total energy output equal to hundreds of thousands of supernova explosions.(10, 11) In some galaxies these active emissions have been observed to equal the energy from billions of supernova explosions.

"Until recently, astronomers believed these eruptions were very infrequent, occurring every 10 to 100 million years.(10) They also believed the interstellar magnetic fields, in the Galactic nucleus, would trap the emitted particles in spiral orbits causing them to reach the Earth very slowly.(12) For these reasons, many did not believe that Galactic core explosions posed any immediate threat to the Earth.

"However, in 1983 Paul LaViolette presented evidence to the scientific community indicating that:(2 - 4)

     1. Galactic core explosions actually occur about every 13,000 - 26,000 years for major outbursts and more frequently for lesser events.

     2. The emitted cosmic rays escape from the core virtually unimpeded. As they travel radially outward through the Galaxy, they form a spherical shell that advances at a velocity approaching the speed of light.

"Astronomical discoveries subsequently confirmed aspects of Dr. LaViolette's hypothesis. In 1985, astronomers discovered that Cygnus X-3, an energetic celestial source of cosmic rays, which is about the same distance from Earth as the Galactic Center (25,000 light years), is showering Earth with particles, traveling at close to the speed of light, moving in essentially straight paths.(13) Later, scientists found the Earth is impacted, at sporadic intervals, with cosmic rays emitted from the X-ray pulsar Hercules X-1 (about 12,000 light years distant).(14, 15) The intervening interstellar medium has so little effect on these particles, that their pulsation period of 1.2357 seconds, is constant to within 300 microseconds.

"These findings are reason to be gravely concerned about the effects of a Galactic core explosion because they imply that the cosmic rays generated can impact our planet, virtually without warning, preceded only by the wave-flash from the initial explosion.(1, 2, 6) Astronomical observations show the last major Galactic core explosion occurred as recently as 10,000 to 15,000 years ago.(16, 17) Data obtained from polar ice core samples show evidence of this cosmic ray event as well as other cosmic ray intensity peaks from earlier times (Figure 2).(1, 18)

"Also Dr. LaViolette's prediction that there is a residual flow of interstellar dust currently entering the Solar System from the Galactic center direction was later verified by data collected from the Ulysses spacecraft and by AMOR radar measurements made in New Zealand.(8)

"Today, tomorrow, next week, next year. . . sometime in the coming decades. . . our planet could once again be hit by an intense volley of Galactic cosmic rays. It will come cloaked and hidden from us, until the very moment it strikes. We live on the edge of the Galaxy's volcano. Knowing neither the time, the magnitude, nor the severity of the next eruption or its impact on our environment, we stand unprepared to deal with this event, much less anticipate its arrival.

Galactic Superwaves: Their Effects on Life and Society

  "When cosmic rays from Galactic superwaves impact the Earth's atmosphere, they produce "electron cascades." Each primary cosmic ray generates millions of secondary high energy electrons. Many of these particles scatter upwards and become trapped by the Earth's magnetic field to form radiation belts similar to those created by high altitude nuclear explosions. In just one day, a major Galactic superwave event would inject into the geomagnetic field a particle energy equivalent to 1000 one-megaton hydrogen bomb explosions (1025 ergs). At this rate, the energy delivered to the belts after one year would exceed 30,000 times the energy received from the most powerful solar cosmic ray storms observed in modern times.

    "Such energized radiation belts could cause a global communications blackout by creating radio static and by permanently damaging critical electronic components of communication satellites. Air travel during such conditions would be extremely hazardous. The resulting atmospheric ionization would destroy the ozone layer, and increase skin cancer rates, due to high levels of UV reaching the Earth's surface; the cosmic ray particles penetrating to ground level would significantly increase cell mutation rates.

  "Galactic superwaves may also produce an intense electromagnetic pulse (EMP) whenever a cosmic ray front happens to strike the Earth's atmosphere. Galactic superwaves such as those that arrived during the last ice age could have generated pulses delivering tens of thousands of volts per meter in times as short as a billionth of a second, comparable to the early-time EMP signal from a high-altitude nuclear explosion (see Figure 3).

    "In addition, there is the danger that a superwave could transport outlying cosmic dust into the Solar System which could seriously affect the Earth's climate possibly triggering a new ice age. Although there is a small probability that the next superwave will be as catastrophic as the one at the end of the last ice age, even the less intense, more frequent events would be quite hazardous for the global economy.



The Frequency and Hazards of Minor Superwave Events

  Galactic Center activity occurs frequently between major superwave events. Astronomical observation indicates that during the last 6,000 years, the Galactic center has expelled 14 clouds of ionized gas.(19) See Figure 4 for dates. These outbursts may have produced minor superwave emissions with EMP effects comparable to those of major superwaves. About 80% of these bursts took place within 500 hundred years of one another (Figure 5). With the most recent outburst occurring 700 years ago, there is a high probability of another one occurring in the near future.

    The four-second extragalactic gamma ray burst that arrived in 1983, did have a measurable effect on radio transmissions used for global navigation and communication.(20) By comparison, the "minor" superwave events discussed above might have total energies hundreds of millions of times greater than this.

  At present little research is being done on this important astronomical phenomenon. Nor are we prepared should a Galactic superwave suddenly arrive. International channels of communication are not in place to deal with the disasters that a superwave could bring upon us.



Steps that Should be Taken

    Currently, radio astronomers are monitoring the cosmic ray/synchrotron radiation activity of the Galactic core on a daily basis. They report their findings regularly in IAU (International Astronomical Union) circulars. However, an early warning system needs to be set up so that, in the event that signs of a significant core outburst and superwave activity are detected, the proper organizations around the world are notified and the proper precautions are taken. In this way, the impact of such an event could be drastically reduced.

    In regard to the superwave EMP problem, there is a need to develop an awareness about this phenomenon so that if it does occur, it does not inadvertently trigger a nuclear missile launching. Also there is a need to develop emergency plans to implement measures that will minimize its impact on power and communications networks.

    There needs to be an increased awareness of the phenomenon and its potential threat to the Earth so that ways might be found of minimizing the effects of a superwave should one arrive. More scientific papers need to be presented on research on this subject and media coverage of the subject is needed. Astronomical and geological research needs to be conducted to learn more about this phenomenon. For example, a more detailed analysis needs to be made of the high concentrations of beryllium-10 and cosmic dust present in the ice age portion of the Earth's polar ice record, remnants of the last major superwave event. Data on interstellar dust composition that will be gathered with the Cassini spacecraft will also be particularly useful.

    Currently, the Starburst Foundation is one of the few organizations researching this important astronomical phenomenon. The Starburst Foundation is a scientific research institute dedicated to discovering how Galactic superwaves have affected our planet in the past, to implementing an international early-warning system for future events, and to investigating ways of lessening the adverse effects of superwaves on our planet.

Was the December 26, 2004 Indonesian Earthquake and Tsunami Caused by a Stellar Explosion 45,000 Light Years Away? Sound Crazy? Read Carefully Below.
http://www.etheric.com/GalacticCenter/GRB.html

Gamma Ray Bursts, Gravity Waves, and Earthquakes

On December 26, 2004 a magnitude 9.3 earthquake occurred in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Sumatra in Malaysia.  It caused a powerful tsunami which devastated coastal regions of many countries leaving over 240,000 people either dead or missing.  It was the worst tsunami to affect this area since the explosion of Krakatoa.  The earthquake that produced it was so strong that it exceeded by a factor of 10 the next most powerful earthquake to occur in the past 25 years.

• Indonesian 9.3 Richter earthquake:
     December 26, 2004 at 00 hours 58 minutes (Universal Time)

It is then with some alarm that we learn that just 44.6 hours later gamma ray telescopes orbiting the Earth picked up the arrival of the brightest gamma ray burst ever recorded!

• Gamma ray burst arrival:
     December 27, 2004 at 21 hours 36 minutes (Universal Time)

This gamma ray blast was 100 times more intense than any burst that had been previously recorded, equaling the brightness of the full Moon, but radiating most of its energy at gamma ray wavelengths.  Gamma ray counts spiked to a maximum in 1.5 seconds and then declined over a 5 minute period with 7.57 second pulsations.  The blast temporarily changed the shape the Earth's ionosphere, distorting the transmission of long-wavelength radio signals.  See stories on Space.com, BBC News, NY TImes.

     It was determined that the burst originated from the soft gamma ray repeater star, SGR 1806-20, a neutron star 20 kilometers in diameter which rotates once every 7.5 seconds, matching the GRB pulsation period.  SGR 1806-20 is located about 10 degrees northeast of the Galactic center and about 45,000 light years from us, or about twice as far away as the Galactic center.  It released more energy in a tenth of a second than the Sun emits in 100,000 years. Other gamma ray bursts have been detected whose explosions were intrinsically more powerful than this one at the source of the explosion, but since those explosions originated in other galaxies tens of thousands of times more distant, the bursts were not nearly as bright when they reached our solar system.  What makes the December 27th gamma ray burst unique is that it is the first time that a burst this bright has been observed, one that also happens to originate from within our own Galaxy.

     Astronomers have theorized that gamma ray bursts might travel in association with gravity wave bursts. In the course of their flight through space, gamma rays would be deflected by gravitational fields and would be scattered by dust and cosmic ray particles they encountered, so they would be expected to travel slightly slower than their associated gravity wave burst which would pass through space unimpeded.  After a 45,000 year light-speed journey, a gamma ray burst arrival delay of 44.6 hours would not be unexpected.  It amounts to a delay of just one part in 9 million.  So if the gravity wave traveled at the speed of light (c), the gamma ray burst would have averaged a speed of 0.99999989 c, just 0.11 millionths slower.  There is also the possibility that at the beginning of its journey the gravity wave may have had a superluminal speed; see textbox below.

The 9.3 Richter earthquake was ten times stronger than any other earthquake during the past 25 years, and was followed just 44.6 hours later on December 27th by a very intense gamma ray burst, which was 100 fold brighter than any other in the past 25 year history of gamma ray observation. It seems difficult to pass off the temporal proximity of these two Class I events as being just a matter of coincidence.  A time period of 25 years compared to a time separation of 44.6 hours amounts to a time ratio of about 5000:1.  For two such unique events to have such a close time proximity is highly improbable if they are not somehow related.  But, as mentioned above, gravity waves would very likely be associated with gamma ray bursts, and they would be expected to precede them.

    Many have inquired if there might be a connection between these two events (e.g., see the Space.com article).  Not thinking of the gravity wave connection, astronomers have been reluctant to admit there might be a connection since they know of no mechanism by which gamma rays by themselves could trigger earthquakes.  They admit that the December 27th gamma ray burst had slightly affected the ionization state of the Earth's atmosphere, but this by itself should not have caused earthquakes.  However, if a longitudinal gravity potential wave pulse were to accompany a gamma ray burst, the mystery becomes resolved.  The connection between earthquakes and gamma ray bursts now becomes plausible.

     In his 1983 Ph.D. dissertation, Paul LaViolette called attention to terrestrial dangers of Galactic core explosions, pointing out that the arrival of the cosmic ray superwave they produced would be signaled by a high intensity gamma ray burst which would also generate EMP effects (e.g., see Page 3).   He also noted that a strong gravity wave might be expected to travel forward at the forefront of this superwave and might be the first indication of a superwave's arrival.  He pointed out that such gravity waves could induce substantial tidal forces on the Earth during their passage which could induce earthquakes and cause polar axis torquing effects.   In his book Earth Under Fire (as well as in his dissertation), he presents evidence showing that the superwave that passed through the solar system around 14,200 years ago had triggered supernova explosions as it swept through the Galaxy.  Among these were the Vela and Crab supernova explosions whose explosion dates align with this superwave event horizon.  He points out that these explosions could be explained if a gravity wave accompanied this superwave, it could have produced tidal forces which could have triggered unstable stars to explode as it passed through.   

    He wrote at a time when gamma ray bursts had just begun to be discovered, and when no one was concerned with them as potential terrestrial hazards.  In recent years scientific opinion has come around to adopt LaViolette's concern, as can be seen in news articles discussing the SGR 1806-20 gamma ray outburst, e.g., see Space.com news story.  They note that if this gamma ray burst had been as close as 10 light years it would have completely destroyed the ozone layer.  By comparison, the Galactic superwaves LaViolette has postulated to have been generated as a result of an outburst of our Galaxy's core and to have impacted the Solar system during the last ice age would have impacted the solar system with a cosmic ray electron volley having an energy intensity 100 times greater than this hypothetical 10 light year distant stellar gamma ray burst. In comparision, SGR 1806-20 has been estimated to have a stellar progenitor mass of 150 solar masses, whereas our Galactic core has a mass of 2.6 million solar masses.  In its present active phase, SGR 1806-20 is estimated to have a luminosity 40 million times that of the Sun, whereas during its active phase the Galactic center could reach luminosities of 400 trillion times that of the Sun.   So it is understandable that if the Galactic center were to erupt, it would produce a gamma ray burst and a gravity wave far more intense than the outburst from this star.

     If anything, the December 27, 2004 gamma ray burst shows us that we do not live in a peaceful celestial environment.  And if the December 26th earthquake was in fact part of this same celestial event, we see that this stellar eruption has claimed many lives.  For this reason, it is important that we prepare for the possibility of even stronger events in the future, the arrival of superwaves issuing from the core of our Galaxy.  Like the December 26th earthquake and the December 27th gamma ray burst, the next superwave will arrive unexpectedly.  It will take us by surprise.

As a next step, it is advisable to investigate data from gravity wave telescopes to see if a celestial gravity wave may have arrived immediately prior to the December 26, 2004 earthquake.  Since seismic waves from the Indonesian earthquake would have taken some time to propagate through the Earth to these gravity wave antenna, their signature could be distinguished from the gravity wave coming from SGR 1806-20.  LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravity Wave Observatory), which consists of two correlated telescopes, one in Washington and one in Louisiana, each having a 4 kilometer long laser interferometer beam path, was in the process of being made operational and unfortunately was not collecting data at that time.   The TAMA gravity wave antenna in Japan may have been operational during the December time period however they apparently do not answer telephone calls and have no posted email address.   So it has not been possible to contact their scientific team.

The December 27th GRB was not accompanied by any rise in the cosmic ray background, indicating that if it was accompanied by cosmic rays their intensity was unable to exceed the relatively constant extragalactic background flux arriving from distant galaxies.  A Galactic superwave, on the other hand, would most likely produce a substantial rise in these levels.

   Note that almost two months passed before the December 27th gamma ray burst found its way into news media stories. If unusually intense activity were to occur in the near future as the beginning stages of a superwave arrival, it is hoped that scientists will not keep this knowledge to themselves but rather allow the global news media to disseminate the story quickly to inform the world.

A Superluminal Gravity Wave?

Experiments carried out by Eugene Podkletnov show that a shock front outburst produces a longitudinal gravitational wave that travels forward with the burst.  He has found that this gravity wave pulse has a speed in excess of 64 times the speed of light (personal communication).  Also Guy Obolensky has produced spark discharge electric potential shock fronts and observed them to propagate forward at speeds as high as 10 times the speed of light.  Observations suggest that the gravity wave from an expanding stellar explosion will decrease its superluminal speed and eventually approach the speed of light as the shock front expands.  But meanwhile, the gravity wave will have obtained a headstart over the electromagnetic wave radiation component traveling in its wake (light waves, gamma rays, etc.).  So one would expect that the gravity wave from such an outburst (and its resultant earthquake activity) would precede the gamma ray burst component.

NEWS ARTICLES: Neutron Star Explosion Detected December 27, 2004

Brightest Explosion Ever Recorded

NASA -- Scientists have detected a flash of light from across the Galaxy so powerful that it bounced off the Moon and lit up the Earth's upper atmosphere. The flash was brighter than anything ever detected from beyond our Solar System and lasted over a tenth of a second.
NASA and European satellites and many radio telescopes detected the flash and its aftermath on December 27, 2004. Two science teams report about this event at a special press event today at NASA headquarters. A multitude of papers are planned for publication.
The scientists said the light came from a "giant flare" on the surface of an exotic neutron star, called a magnetar. The apparent magnitude was brighter than a full moon and all historical star explosions. The light was brightest in the gamma-ray energy range, far more energetic than visible light or X-rays and invisible to our eyes.

Such a close and powerful eruption raises the question of whether an even larger influx of gamma rays, disturbing the atmosphere, was responsible for one of the mass extinctions known to have occurred on Earth hundreds of millions of years ago. Also, if giant flares can be this powerful, then some gamma-ray bursts (thought to be very distant black-hole-forming star explosions) could actually be from neutron star eruptions in nearby galaxies.
NASA's newly launched Swift satellite and the NSF-funded Very Large Array (VLA) were two of many observatories that observed the event, arising from neutron star SGR 1806-20, about 50,000 light years from Earth in the constellation Sagittarius.

"This might be a once-in-a-lifetime event for astronomers, as well as for the neutron star," said Dr. David Palmer of Los Alamos National Laboratory, lead author on a paper describing the Swift observation. "We know of only two other giant flares in the past 35 years, and this December event was one hundred times more powerful."
Dr. Bryan Gaensler of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, Mass., is lead author on a report describing the VLA observation, which tracked the ejected material as it flew out into interstellar space. Other key scientific teams are associated with radio telescopes in Australia, The Netherlands, United Kingdom, India and the United States, as well as with NASA's High Energy Solar Spectroscopic Imager (RHESSI).

A neutron star is the core remains of a star once several times more massive than our Sun. When such stars deplete their nuclear fuel, they explode -- an event called a supernova. The remaining core is dense, fast-spinning, highly magnetic, and only about 15 miles in diameter. Millions of neutron stars fill our Milky Way galaxy.
Scientists have discovered about a dozen ultrahigh-magnetic neutron stars, called magnetars. The magnetic field around a magnetar is about 1,000 trillion gauss, strong enough to strip information from a credit card at a distance halfway to the moon. (Ordinary neutron stars measure a mere trillion gauss; the Earth's magnetic field is about 0.5 gauss.)

Four of these magnetars are also called soft gamma repeaters, or SGRs, because they flare up randomly and release gamma rays. Such episodes release about 10^30 to 10^35 watts for about a second, or up to millions of times more energy than our Sun. For a tenth of a second, the giant flare on SGR 1806-20 unleashed energy at a rate of about 10^40 watts. The total energy produced was more than the Sun emits in 150,000 years.
"The next biggest flare ever seen from any soft gamma repeater was peanuts compared to this incredible December 27 event," said Gaensler. "Had this happened within 10 light years of us, it would have severely damaged our atmosphere. Fortunately, all the magnetars we know of are much farther away than this."

A scientific debate raged in the 1980s over whether gamma-ray bursts were star explosions from beyond our Galaxy or eruptions on nearby neutron stars. By the late 1990s it became clear that gamma-ray bursts did indeed originate very far away and that SGRs were a different phenomenon. But the extraordinary giant flare on SGR 1806-20 reopens the debate, according to Dr. Chryssa Kouveliotou of NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, who took part in both the Swift and VLA analysis.
A sizeable percentage of "short" gamma-ray bursts, less than two seconds, could be SGR flares, she said. These would come from galaxies within about a 100 million light years from Earth. (Long gamma-ray bursts appear to be black-hole-forming star explosions billions of light years away.)

"An answer to the 'short' gamma-ray burst mystery could come any day now that Swift is in orbit", said Swift lead scientist Neil Gehrels. "Swift saw this event after only about a month on the job."
Scientists around the world have been following the December 27 event. RHESSI detected gamma rays and X-rays from the flare. Drs. Kevin Hurley and Steven Boggs of the University of California, Berkeley, are leading the effort to analyze these data. Dr. Robert Duncan of the University of Texas at Austin and Dr. Christopher Thompson at the Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics (University of Toronto) are the leading experts on magnetars, and they are investigating the "short duration" gamma-ray burst relationship.

Brian Cameron, a graduate student at Caltech under the tutorage of Prof. Shri Kulkarni, leads a second scientific paper based on VLA data. Amateur astronomers detected the disturbance in the Earth's ionosphere and relayed this information through the American Association of Variable Star Observers.

Huge explosion traced to exotic star
Jim Giles
Astronomers pinpoint source of unprecedented radiation surge.
The rotating, highly-magnetised neutron star undergoing a 'quake' at its surface. Click here to see animation.
A cataclysmic 'starquake' is thought to have caused a flare of radiation that ripped past the Earth on 27 December, battering instruments on satellites and lighting up our atmosphere.
Scientists say this is the biggest blast of gamma and X-rays they have ever observed in our corner of the Universe. They believe the flare came from a bizarre object just 20 kilometres wide on the other side of the Galaxy.
"This is a once-in-a-lifetime event," says Rob Fender of Southampton University, UK, one of the researchers studying data on the flare. "The object released more energy in a tenth of a second than the Sun emits in 100,000 years."
Data from satellites and ground-based telescopes have pinpointed the origin of the burst as SGR 1806-20, a 'magnetar' around 50,000 light-years away in the constellation of Sagittarius. Magnetars are extremely dense, small stars with magnetic fields at least a thousand trillion times stronger than the Earth's. They are a type of neutron star, the compact remnant of a collapsed sun.
Astronomically speaking, this was in our backyard.
Bryan Gaensler, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics
The flare may have been caused by a quake on the surface of SGR 1806-20, suggest researchers. The quake would have disturbed the star's magnetic field, creating an explosion that was the brightest ever detected beyond our Solar System.
It is possible that similar flares have been misinterpreted in the past. Analogous gamma ray bursts have been detected, but they were assumed to come from very distant objects beyond our galaxy.
A satellite launched last November is ideally positioned to resolve the issue. NASA's Swift Gamma Ray Burst Mission is designed to locate and measure bursts. "Answers to these questions could come any day now that Swift is in orbit," says Neil Gehrels of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland.
Safe distance
Fortunately for life on Earth, the nearest known magnetar is about 13,000 light years away - too far for any future burst to damage the planet. The radiation burst from a closer explosion could, for example, wipe out the ozone layer.
"Astronomically speaking, this was in our backyard," says Bryan Gaensler of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and an author of a paper about the burst that has been accepted for publication in Nature. "If it were in our living room, we'd be in big trouble."

Blast Affected Earth From Halfway Across The Milky Way

Cambridge MA (SPX) Feb 21, 2005
Forget "Independence Day" or "War of the Worlds." A monstrous cosmic explosion last December showed that the earth is in more danger from real-life space threats than from hypothetical alien invasions.
The gamma-ray flare, which briefly outshone the full moon, occurred within the Milky Way galaxy. Even at a distance of 50,000 light-years, the flare disrupted the earth's ionosphere. If such a blast happened within 10 light-years of the earth, it would destroy the much of the ozone layer, causing extinctions due to increased radiation.
"Astronomically speaking, this explosion happened in our backyard. If it were in our living room, we'd be in big trouble!" Said Bryan Gaensler (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics), lead author on a paper describing radio observations of the event.
Gaensler headed one of two teams reporting on this eruption at a special press event today at NASA headquarters. A multitude of papers are planned for publication.
The giant flare detected on December 27, 2004, came from an isolated, exotic neutron star within the Milky Way. The flare was more powerful than any blast previously seen in our galaxy.
"This might be a once-in-a-lifetime event for astronomers, as well as for a neutron star," said David Palmer of Los Alamos National Laboratory, lead author on a paper describing space-based observations of the burst.
"We know of only two other giant flares in the past 35 years, and this December event was one hundred times more powerful."
NASA's newly launched Swift satellite and the NSF-funded Very Large Array (VLA) were two of many observatories that observed the event, arising from neutron star SGR 1806-20, about 50,000 light years from Earth in the constellation Sagittarius.
Neutron stars form from collapsed stars. They are dense, fast-spinning, highly magnetic, and only about 15 miles in diameter. SGR 1806-20 is a unique neutron star called a magnetar, with an ultra-strong magnetic field capable of stripping information from a credit card at a distance halfway to the Moon. Only about 10 magnetars are known among the many neutrons stars in the Milky Way.
"Fortunately, there are no magnetars anywhere near the earth. An explosion like this within a few trillion miles could really ruin our day," said graduate student Yosi Gelfand (CfA), a co-author on one of the papers.
The magnetar's powerful magnetic field generated the gamma-ray flare in a violent process known as magnetic reconnection, which releases huge amounts of energy. The same process on a much smaller scale creates solar flares.
"This eruption was a super-super-super solar flare in terms of energy released," said Gaensler.
Using the VLA and three other radio telescopes, Gaensler and his team detected material ejected by the blast at a velocity three-tenths the speed of light. The extreme speed, combined with the close-up view, yielded changes in a matter of days.
Spotting such a nearby gamma-ray flare offered scientists an incredible advantage, allowing them to study it in more detail than ever before. "We can see the structure of the flare's aftermath, and we can watch it change from day to day. That combination is completely unprecedented," said Gaensler.
Headquartered in Cambridge, Mass., the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) is a joint collaboration between the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory and the Harvard College Observatory. CfA scientists, organized into six research divisions, study the origin, evolution and ultimate fate of the universe.

Distant explosion breaks brightness records

• 19:00 18 February 2005
• NewScientist.com news service

Several dozen satellites around Earth, and one orbiting Mars, detected a flash of high-energy photons - known as gamma rays - on 27 December 2004. The 0.25-second flash was so bright it overwhelmed the detectors on many satellites - making an energy measurement impossible - and disrupted some radio communication on Earth.
"It was so bright, it came right through the body of the Swift satellite, even though Swift wasn't pointed at the object," says John Nousek, mission director for NASA's Swift spacecraft - launched especially to detect gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) - at Pennsylvania State University, US.
The brief flash was followed by a fainter afterglow of gamma rays lasting for about 500 seconds, which showed a recurring signal every 7.5 seconds. That signal led scientists using Europe's INTEGRAL spacecraft to trace the source of the "superflare" to a dead star - called a neutron star - known to spin at that rate. Measurements of the distance to the star - called SGR 1806-20, range from 30,000 to 50,000 light years from Earth.
That relatively small distance, coupled with an accurate energy measurement by NASA's RHESSI satellite, means the explosion was not as powerful - at source - as more distant bursts linked with black holes. Nevertheless, it "may have sterilised any planets within a few light years of it", says Rob Fender, an astronomer at Southampton University, UK, who is studying the lingering radio emission from the flare. "This may be a once-in-a-lifetime event both for astronomers and for the neutron star itself."
Clean credit card
But Christopher Thompson, an astrophysicist at the Canadian Institute for Theoretical Physics, says that may not be so. The neutron star in question is rare magnetar, with a magnetic field so strong it could wipe a credit card clean from a distance of 160,000 kilometres. And this magnetar is even rarer yet, one of three "soft gamma repeaters" (SGRs) in the Milky Way.
SGRs tend to release low-energy flares of gamma rays sporadically, but more energetic bursts have been observed twice before - in 1998 and 1979. But the energy in the initial 0.25-second burst from the most recent flare was 100 times that of the two previous superflares.
But Thompson, who worked on the most accepted magnetar model, says: "I wasn't shocked at the energy it was putting out. The total energy implied by the models is enough to power a dozen or more of these events in the life of one magnetar."
Superflares may occur when tightly wrapped magnetic fields inside the magnetar start to "untwist". This briefly rips loose some magnetic fields outside the star, releasing a "fireball" of particles, and light that astronomers see as a bright flash of gamma rays.
Extreme distances
If this flare had been even farther away - up to 100 million light years or so - it would have looked "indistinguishable" from a short GRB - a cosmic phenomenon that has baffled astronomers for years. Short GRBs are blasts of high-energy gamma rays that last less than two seconds. Astronomers are unsure of their cause but think they have a different origin than "long" GRBs - lasting for several seconds or minutes - which are thought to be created during the birth of black holes.
This latest observation leads David Palmer, a Swift team member at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, US, to say: "I'm fairly confident that soft gamma repeaters account for at least some short gamma-ray bursts."
Neil Gehrels, principal investigator for Swift at NASA, says Swift should be able to help settle the debate about short GRBs. Swift will study both SGRs and short GRBs, having the capability to quickly respond to short GRBs in order to locate them in space.
But he laments: "It's very unlikely we're going to see another one of these supergiant flares."

Monster star burst was brighter than full Moon: astronomers
Fri Feb 18, 2005 2:40 pm
PARIS (AFP) - Stunned astronomers described the greatest cosmic explosion ever monitored -- a star burst from the other side of the galaxy that was briefly brighter than the full Moon and swamped satellites and telescopes.

The high-radiation flash, detected last December 27, caused no harm to Earth but would have literally fried the planet had it occurred within a few light years of home.

Normally reserved skywatchers struggled for superlatives.

"This is a once-in-a-lifetime event," said Rob Fender of Britain's Southampton University.

"We have observed an object only 20 kilometers (12 miles) across, on the other side of our galaxy, releasing more energy in a 10th of a second than the Sun emits in 100,000 years."

"It was the mother of all magnetic flares -- a true monster," said Kevin Hurley, a research physicist at the University of California at Berkeley.

Bryan Gaensler of the United States' Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, described the burst as "maybe a once per century or once per millennium event in our galaxy.

"Astronomically speaking, this explosion happened in our backyard. If it were in our living room, we'd be in big trouble."

The blast was caused by an eruption on the surface of a known, exotic kind of neutron star called SGR 1806-20, located about 50,000 light years from Earth in the constellation of Sagittarius and about three billion times farther from us than the Sun.

A neutron star is the remnant of a very large star near the end of its life -- a tiny, extraordinarily dense core with a powerful magnetic field, spinning swiftly on its axis.

When these ancient star cores finally run out of fuel, they collapse in on themselves and explode as a supernova.

There are millions of neutron stars in the Milky Way but, so far, only a dozen have been found to be "magnetars": neutron stars with an ultra-powerful magnetic field.

Magnetars have have a magnetic field measuring about 1,000 trillion gauss, hundreds of times more powerful than that of any other object in the Universe.

To give an idea of this in earthly terms, the field is so powerful that it could strip the data off a credit card at a distance of 200,000 kilometers (120,000 miles).

SGR 1806-20 is an even rarer bird. It is one of only four known "soft gamma repeater" (SGR) magnetars, so called because they flare up randomly and release gamma rays in a mammoth burst.

Why this happens is unknown. One theory is that the energy release comes from magnetic fields which wrestle and overlap because of the star's spin and then snap back and reconnect, creating a "starquake" rather like the competing faults that cause an earthquake.

What is sure, though, is that the outpouring of energy is massive.

The SGR 1806-20 spewed out about 10,000 trillion trillion watts, or about 100 times brighter than any of the several "giant flares" that have been previously recorded.

Despite this energy loss, the strange star did not even pause, Britain's Royal Astronomical Society (RAS) said.

"SGR 1806-20 spins once in only 7.5 seconds. Amazingly, the December 27 event did not cause any slowing of its spin rate, as would be expected," the RAS said.

The flare, detected by satellites and telescopes operated by NASA (news - web sites) and Europe, was so powerful that it bounced off the Moon and lit up the Earth's upper atmosphere. For over a tenth of the second, it was actually brighter than a full Moon, and briefly overwhelmed delicate sensors, RAS said.

Two science teams, formed by observations provided by 20 institutes around the world, will report on the blast in a forthcoming issue of the British weekly journal Nature.

Many questions will be thrown up by the event, including the intriguing speculation that the dinosaurs may have been wiped out by a similar, closer gamma-ray explosion 65 million years ago, and not by climate change inflicted by an asteroid impact.

"Had this happened within 10 light years of us, it would have severly damaged our atmosphere and possibly have triggered a mass extinction," said lead-author Gaensler.

The good news, he noted, is that the nearest known magnetar to Earth, 1E 2259+586, is about 13,000 light years away.

Magnetar flare blitzed Earth Dec. 27, could solve cosmic mysteries

This information is co-released with The University of California, Berkeley, and co-incides with a NASA Space Science Update (right).

Austin, Texas — Astronomers around the world recorded late last year a powerful explosion of high-energy X-rays and gamma rays — a split-second flash from the other side of our galaxy that was strong enough to affect the Earth's atmosphere. The flash, called a soft gamma repeater flare, reached Earth on Dec. 27 and was detected by at least 15 satellites and spacecraft between Earth and Saturn, swamping most of their detectors.
Thought to be a mighty cataclysm in a super-dense, highly magnetized star called a magnetar, it emitted as much energy in two-tenths of a second as the sun gives off in 250,000 years. Robert C. Duncan of the University of Texas at Austin originally proposed and developed the magnetar theory, along with Christopher Thompson of the Canadian Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics.
"This is a key event for understanding magnetars," Duncan said. Its intrinsic power was a thousand times greater than the power of all other stars in the galaxy put together, and at least 100 times the power of any previous magnetar outburst in our galaxy. It was ten thousand times brighter than the brightest supernova.
Duncan and Thompson worked with Kevin Hurley, a research physicist at UC Berkeley who leads a major international team studying the event, to understand the immense power of the Dec. 27 flare. "It was the mother of all magnetic flares - a true monster," Hurley said.
The team's observations and analysis are summarized in a paper that has been submitted for publication in the journal Nature.
"Soft gamma repeater" bursts — pinpoint flashes of highly energetic X-rays and low-energy (soft) gamma rays coming repeatedly from one place in the sky — were first noticed in 1979 and remained a mystery until Duncan and Thompson proposed in 1992 that they originate from magnetically powered neutron stars, or magnetars. Formed by the collapsing core of a star throwing off its outer layers in a supernova explosion, neutron stars are extremely dense, with more mass than in the Sun packed into a ball about 10 miles across. Many neutron stars spin rapidly. These spinning neutron stars, some rotating a thousand times a second, signal their presence by the emission of pulsed radio waves, and are called pulsars.
According to Duncan, magnetars are a special kind of neutron star. They are born rotating very quickly, which causes their magnetic fields to get amplified. But after a few thousand years, their intense magnetic field slows their spin to a more moderate period of one rotation every few seconds. The magnetic fields both inside and outside the star twist, however, and according to the theory these intense fields can stress and move the crust much like shearing along the San Andreas Fault. These magnetic fields are a quadrillion — a million billion — times stronger than the field that deflects compass needles at the Earth's surface.
The shear moves the crust around and the magnetic fields are tied to the crust, generating twists in the magnetic field that can sometimes break and reconnect in a process that sends trapped positrons and electrons flying out from the star, annihilating each other in a gigantic explosion of hard gamma rays.
The flare observed Dec. 27 originated about 50,000 light years away in the constellation Sagittarius, which means that the magnetar sits directly opposite the center of our galaxy from the Earth in the disk of the Milky Way Galaxy.
As the radiation stormed through our solar system, it blitzed at least 15 spacecraft, knocking their instruments off-scale whether or not they were pointing in the magnetar's direction. One Russian satellite, Coronas-F, detected gamma rays that had bounced off the Moon.
The flare also ripped atoms apart, ionizing them, in much of the Earth's ionosphere for five minutes, to a deeper level than even the biggest solar flares do, an effect noticed via its effect on long-wavelength radio communications. Such events are unlikely to pose a danger to the Earth because the chances that one would be close enough to the Earth to cause serious disruption are exceedingly small.
Hurley and his team combined information from many spacecraft, including neutron and gamma-ray detectors aboard Mars Odyssey and many near-Earth satellites, in order to localize it to a spot well-known to astronomers: a magnetar known as SGR 1806-20. This position was accurately confirmed by radio astronomers at the Very Large Array in Socorro, N.M., who studied the fading radio afterglow of the event and obtained important information about the explosion.
The tremendous power of the event has suggested a novel solution to a long-standing mystery — the origins of a strange phenomenon known as "Short-Duration Gamma Ray Bursts." Hundreds of brief, mysterious flashes of high-energy radiation from deepest space, lasting less than two seconds, have been measured and recorded over decades, but nobody knew what they were.
The similarity between the Dec. 27 burst and these short-duration bursts lies in the brief spike of hard gamma rays that arrives first and carries almost all the energy. In the recent burst, for example, the hard spike lasted only two-tenths of a second. This was followed by a "tail" of X-rays that lasted over six minutes. As the tail faded, its brightness oscillated on a 7.56 second cycle, the known rotation period of the magnetar.
According to Duncan and Thompson's theory, the oscillating X-ray tail that followed was due to a residue of electrons, positrons and gamma-rays trapped in the magnetar's magnetic field. Such a hot "trapped fireball" shrinks and evaporates over minutes, as electrons and positrons annihilate. The measurements of Hurley's team corroborate this picture. The tail's brightness appears to oscillate because the fireball is stuck to the surface of the rotating star by the magnetic field, so it rotates with the star like a lighthouse beacon.
Duncan and his team argue that the hard initial spike of these giant flares is so bright that it can be detected from very far away, meaning that some of the short flares we see are from other galaxies, though the soft X-ray tails are too faint to be seen.
Duncan and his collaborators predict that if a magnetar flares as brightly as the December 27 event within 100 million light-years of Earth, astronomers should be able to detect it. Texas astronomers John Scalo and Sheila Kannappan helped Duncan estimate the rate at which such distant flares might be seen. They estimated that of order 40% of the short bursts previously observed could have been such magnetar bursts. There is a good probability that the newly-launched Swift satellite will see a magnetar burst once a month.
Launched in November 2004 and gathering data only since January, Swift is designed to automatically turn its X-ray telescope toward a burst in order to accurately pin down its position.
Duncan's team estimates that Swift will spot an abundance of magnetars lurking in other galaxies. In some cases, Swift's X-ray telescope may even catch the oscillating tail and measure the rotation period of the faraway star.
"Swift will open up a new field of astronomy: the study of extragalactic magnetars," Duncan said.
Co-authors with Hurley, Boggs, Duncan and Thompson were D. M. Smith of the UC Santa Cruz physics department, RHESSI and Wind principal investigator and Space Sciences Laboratory Director Robert Lin, and teams of U.S., Swiss, Russian, and German scientists.

Huge 'star-quake' rocks Milky Way

It turns out that the 26th and 27th of December were not only turbulent for our planet, but turbulent for our galaxy too. The explosion took place in the constellation of Sagittarius. I'm very grateful to fixed star expert Diana K Rosenberg for calculating the position and time of the explosion, which in astrological tropical zodiac terms occurred at 01CAP28; LAT 3N 25 53; DECL 19S20; RA 18 06 18. It occurred Dec 27, 2004, at 21:30:26 UT.

BBC - Astronomers say they have been stunned by the amount of energy released in a star explosion on the far side of our galaxy, 50,000 light-years away
The flash of radiation on 27 December was so powerful that it bounced off the Moon and lit up the Earth's atmosphere.
The blast occurred on the surface of an exotic kind of star - a super-magnetic neutron star called SGR 1806-20.
If the explosion had been within just 10 light-years, Earth could have suffered a mass extinction, it is said.
"We figure that it's probably the biggest explosion observed by humans within our galaxy since Johannes Kepler saw his supernova in 1604," Dr Rob Fender, of Southampton University, UK, told the BBC News website.
One calculation has the giant flare on SGR 1806-20 unleashing about 10,000 trillion trillion trillion watts.
"This is a once-in-a-lifetime event. We have observed an object only 20km across, on the other side of our galaxy, releasing more energy in a 10th of a second than the Sun emits in 100,000 years," said Dr Fender.

VLA Probes Secrets of Mysterious Magnetar

A giant flash of energy from a supermagnetic neutron star thousands of light-years from Earth may shed a whole new light on scientists' understanding of such mysterious "magnetars" and of gamma-ray bursts. In the nearly two months since the blast, the National Science Foundation's Very Large Array (VLA) telescope has produced a wealth of surprising information about the event, and "the show goes on," with continuing observations.
The blast from an object named SGR 1806-20 came on Dec. 27, 2004, and was first detected by orbiting gamma-ray and X-ray telescopes. It was the brightest outburst ever seen coming from an object beyond our own solar system, and its energy overpowered most orbiting telescopes. The burst of gamma rays and X-rays even disturbed the Earth's ionosphere, causing a sudden disruption in some radio communications.
While the intensely bright gamma ray burst faded in a matter of minutes, the VLA and other radio telescopes have been tracking the explosion's "afterglow" for weeks, providing most of the data astronomers need to figure out the physics of the blast.
A magnetar is a superdense neutron star with a magnetic field thousands of trillions of times more intense than that of the Earth. Scientists believe that SGR 1806-20's giant burst of energy was somehow triggered by a "starquake" in the neutron star's crust that caused a catastrophic disruption in the magnetar's magnetic field. The magnetic disruption generated the huge burst of gamma rays and "boiled off" particles from the star's surface into a rapidly expanding fireball that continues to emit radio waves for weeks or months.
The VLA first observed SGR 1806-20 on Jan. 3, and has been joined by other radio telescopes in Australia, the Netherlands, and India. Scientific papers prepared for publication based on the first month's radio observations report a number of key discoveries about the object. Scientists using the VLA have found:
• The fireball of radio-emitting material is expanding at roughly one-third the speed of light.
• The expanding fireball is elongated, and may change its shape quickly.
• Alignment of the radio waves (polarization) confirms that the fireball is not spherical.
• The flare emitted an amount of energy that represents a significant fraction of the total energy stored in the magnetar's magnetic field.
Of the dozen or so magnetars known to astronomers, only one other has been seen to experience a giant outburst. In 1998, SGR 1900+14 put out a blast similar in many respects to SGR 1806-20's, but much weaker.
National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) astronomer Dale Frail observed the 1998 outburst and has been watching SGR 1806-20 for a decade. Both magnetars are part of the small group of objects called soft gamma-ray repeaters, because they repeatedly experience much weaker outbursts of gamma rays. In early January, he was hosting a visiting college student while processing the first VLA data from SGR 1806-20's giant outburst.
"I literally could not believe what I was looking at," Frail said. "Immediately I could see that this flare was 100 times stronger than the 1998 flare, and 10,000 times brighter than anything this object had done before."
"I couldn't stay in my chair, and this student got to see a real, live astronomer acting like an excited little kid," Frail said.
The excitement isn't over, either. "The show goes on and we continue to observe this thing and continue to get surprises," said Greg Taylor, an astronomer for NRAO and the Kavli Institute of Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology in Stanford, Calif..
One VLA measurement may cause difficulties for scientists trying to fit SGR 1806-20 into a larger picture of gamma ray bursts (GRBs). GRBs, seen regularly from throughout the universe, come in two main types--very short bursts and longer ones. The longer ones are generally believed to result when a massive star collapses into a black hole, rather than into a neutron star as in a supernova explosion. The strength and short duration of SGR 1806-20's December outburst has led some astronomers to speculate that a similar event could be seen out to a considerable distance from Earth. That means, they say, that magnetars may be the source of the short-period GRBs.
That interpretation is based to some extent on a previous measurement that indicates SGR 1806-20 is nearly 50,000 light-years from Earth. One team of observers, however, analyzed the radio emission from SGR 1806-20 and found evidence that the magnetar is only about 30,000 light-years distant. The difference, they say, reduces the likelihood that SGR 1806-20 could be a parallel for short-period GRBs.

In any case, the wealth of information astronomers have gathered about the tremendous December blast makes it an extremely important event for understanding magnetars and GRBs.

Continuing Earth Changes Cripple American Submarine and Pose New Dangers for the American Continents

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Russian Subscribers

Continued energy surges, and as yet still unexplained by Western scientists, continue to bombard the earth’s Southern Hemispheric Regions this morning causing many widespread and anomalous events throughout the world and affecting all of its peoples.

Western media sources are presently reporting the dire circumstances surrounding the United States Los Angeles Class Nuclear Submarine San Francisco and the latest reports are saying that one crewman has died and  ‘23 other crew members are being treated aboard for injuries including broken bones, bruises and lacerations’.

The BBC also reports in this article that, “The US Navy said it did not know what the vessel had struck and was investigating severe damage to the outside of the submarine.”

Not being reported by the Western media though is that the USS San Francisco (SSN 711) is part of the United States Navy’s Pacific Fleet, and a part of what is known as Submarine Squadron Fifteen based out of the US Territory of Guam, located in the Mariana Islands Region of the Pacific Ocean.

The significance of this lies in the eruption on Anatahan Island, a part of the Mariana Islands and in the ‘patrol zone’ of the USS San Francisco.

As related to us by one Russian Naval Official, “Imagine you walking around your house at night with the lights off and someone had re-arranged the furniture, make no mistake about it, the American submariners ‘know’ their courses too well and are too highly trained for this to happen suddenly.  Some extreme geologic ‘change’ had to have happened for this accident to occur.”

Could this ‘extreme geologic change’ have been this eruption?

As reported in the Western media regarding this event we hear, “The volcano's activity intensified beginning Tuesday and Wednesday last week after months of extremely low seismic activities, which followed the second batch of eruptions from April to June last year. The volcano on Anatahan first erupted after centuries of dormancy on May 10, 2003, with ash plume rising to more than 30,000 feet.”

We are also continuing to receive reports of meteor fireballs entering the earth’s atmosphere.  Yesterday another such sighting was reported as occurring in the United States region of Alaska, and where it is said, “It streaked quickly from the west to the east in a steep downward arc, and soon wasn't visible behind the mountains.”

More information also continues to be received by us also relating to my December 28, 2004 report, Evidence for Sumatra 9.0 Quake Leans towards Meteorite Strike.

In one research report by the United States National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) it clearly states, and in apparent contradiction to the known facts about The Great Tsunami of 2004, that, “In the Indian Ocean, however, the Indo-Australian plate is being subducted beneath the Eurasian plate at its east margin. Therefore, most tsunamis generated in this area are propagated toward the southwest shores of Java and Sumatra, rather than into the Indian Ocean.”

As recent events have occurred however we know this not to be the case due to the fact that the waves propagated out from a ‘center’ to all areas of the Indian Ocean, to even the African Coast and beyond.

Numerous, yet conflicting, Western media reports also continue to be generated about this cataclysmic event with no regard to science fact but rather relying on speculation alone.

Reports are varying to many extremes of sea floor horizontal and/or vertical movement, such as one report that states, “slippage occurred along about 1,200 km of the interface between the tectonic plates”, and another that states that it was, “…a 600-mile-long (965km) rupture that generated a 35ft vertical displacement in the sea floor.”

But the differences in how many kilometers of vertical displacement did or did not occur, or how high or low various parts of the sea floor rose or fell are not as important as to how fast these assertions of fact were being spread by the Western media sources.

They in fact began within hours of the cataclysm occurring, with no scientific research being conducted and in contradiction to what the United States National Geophysical Data Center had reported and Prof Ravinder Kumar of the Centre of Advance Studies in Geology, Punjab University who has said, “There is no historic record of a tsunami in the Indian Ocean.”

This information alone does not constitute proof of a meteorite strike being the cause of this cataclysmic, but neither do the pronouncements by the Western media stating the cause as being an earthquake event.  The behavior of the waves in the Indian Ocean though do suggest a meteorite due to their concentric nature of flowing throughout the oceans basin, where if these were caused by an earthquake would have been omni or bi directed only as scientists have previously predicted, and particularly in a region where no historical reports of a tsunami had ever been recorded.

Not being connected in the Western Media about this event either was its precursor which occurred in the Macquarie Island region of Antarctica and was measured as an 8.2 event on the Richter scale. (An 8.2 Richter event is equal to 3 billion tons of TNT and the 9.0 event in the Indian Ocean was equal to 32 billion tons.)  But released almost simultaneously with the Antarctica 8.2 event was a report from the United States space organization NASA's Near Earth Object Program in an ‘Asteroid Alert’ which in part said, “For comparison, the Barringer Meteor Crater in northern Arizona is thought to have been created by an iron meteorite between 30 and 100 meters in diameter. Its impact would have released energy equivalent to about 3.5 million tons of TNT.”

More interesting in the light of these recent events are that these two events have more in common than their historically rare power in that both the Antarctica event and the Indian Ocean event are connected by their sameness in both geological and magnetic anomalous features, and as previously mapped by scientists.

One such other area on the earth is known as the Cayman Trough and is located in the Northwest Caribbean Sea.

A number of the world’s top scientists in their fields have reported on this region in a report that in part says, “We review the plate tectonic evolution of the Caribbean area based on a revised model for the opening of the central North Atlantic and the South Atlantic, as well based on an updated model of the motion of the Americas relative to the Atlantic-Indian hotspot reference frame.  We focus on post-83 Ma reconstructions, for which we have combined a set of new magnetic anomaly data in the central North Atlantic between the Kane and Atlantis fracture zones with existing magnetic anomaly data in the central North and South Atlantic oceans and fracture zone identifications from a dense gravity grid from satellite altimetry to compute North America-South America plate motions and their uncertainties.”

As we are all aware, the largest magnetic anomalous area in the world is located in Russia and is named the Kursk Satellite Magnetic Anomaly (KMA), and in the memory of our fallen heroes from the great Russian Submarine Kursk of the same naming.

(Note: There is no easy way to describe to foreign speaking peoples the style of writing one encounters when reading Russian writers like Sorcha Faal, who are steeped in Russian shamanistic thought and in the lives they live.  A report like this particular one can best be analogized as ‘circle of thought’ writing in that the beginning should equal the end. In this report for example it begins with an American Submarine disaster and ends with a Russian one.  The meanings that can be derived are for individual thought and are not meant to be ‘scientific’, as it is defined in Western nations.  Russian shamanistic thinking encompasses the ‘whole’ of all things and can be likened to seeing and attempting to understand the ‘connections’ between all things.  The same ‘known’ facts of information are used like Westerners do, but then are ‘added’ with the ‘unknown’ so that in knowing the greater ‘whole’ of ‘thing’ warnings can be given to help prepare the entire tribe.)

Werner von Braun & Dr. Carol Rosin: False Flag Wars and Exopolitics

Csrdp_1 NOTE: The following interview with Dr. Carol Rosin, President of the Institute for Cooperation in Space (ICIS) summarizes testimony which Carol Rosin gave at the Disclosure Project Press Conference, National Press Club, Washington, DC on May 9, 2001 regarding the a succession of "False Flag Wars" to follow the collapse of the permanent war economy's Communism vs. Capitalism war (1945-1991). These False Flag Wars start with a  "War on Terror;" ; followed by a False Flag "War Against the Asteroids and Near Earth Objects;" and finally a False Falg "War Against Extraterrestrial Civilizations.  Each of these wars, starting with the False Flag operation of September 11, 2001 has had the weaponization of space and occupation of the solar system as a significant objective.

Eye-opening interview with Carol Rosin about the late Werner von Braun

German Scientist Werner von Braun Anticipated
Terrorists, Asteroids and ETs on American "Enemy's List"

© 2004 by Linda Moulton Howe

BOMBSHELL INTERVIEW WITH Dr CAROL ROSIN ABOUT HER WORK WITH THE LATE GERMAN SCIENTIST Dr WERNER VON BRAUN / VON BRAUN ANTICIPATED TERRORISTS, ASTEROIDS AND ETs ON AMERICA's 'ENEMIES LIST!' / FORESAW AND WARNED OF 'WAR IN SPACE' AS AN EVENTUALITY! –

Werner Von Braun, Ph.D., rocket physicist from Germany who lead American space development after WWII.
-----------------------------------------
Carol Rosin founded, and is President of, the Institute for Cooperation in Space and Space Preservation Trust Foundation, Ventura, California.

http://www.peaceinspace.com
-----------------------------------------
June 20, 2004 Ventura, California – One of the most famous names from the beginning of the American rocket and missile programs after World War II is Wernher von Braun. With the defeat of Germany and Japan in 1945 after the United States dropped the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Dr. von Braun and 126 other German rocket scientists were brought to the United States under a government project called "Paperclip." They were based at Fort Bliss, Texas and their work was focused at the White Sands Missile Range north of Ft. Bliss in southern New Mexico.

Dr. von Braun became famous for his expertise and his visionary goal to expand man's knowledge through the exploration of space. His pioneering work led to the development of the Explorer satellites, the Jupiter and Jupiter-C rockets, Pershing, the Redstone rocket, Saturn rockets, and Skylab, the world's first space station. Additionally, his determination to "go where no man has gone before" led America's first landing on the moon in 1969 during the John F. Kennedy administration.

In 1970, NASA asked Dr. von Braun to move to Washington, D.C., to head up the strategic planning effort for the government space agency. But in less than two years he decided to retire from NASA and and went to work for Fairchild Industries of Germantown, Maryland, where he met a 6th grade school teacher named Carol Rosin. She was famous for producing a "Students Studying on Spaceship Earth" project for her school classes. Dr. von Braun asked Carol to join him at Fairchild Industries to help him create a ban of weapons in space.

As President Eisenhower had warned about the threat of the "military-industrial complex" to America's future, Dr. Werner warned that space should be kept free from intrusion by that same military-industrial power. Carol left her teaching and went to work for Dr. von Braun in 1974. He was her mentor until he died in Alexandria, Virginia on June 16, 1977.

Afterward, Carol Rosin has persisted for nearly thirty years in trying to carry out Dr. von Braun's request to get weapons banned from space. She is now President of the Institute for Cooperation in Space and of the Space Preservation Trust Foundation. Last year on December 8, 2003, her U. S. Space Preservation Act was placed by Representative Dennis Kucinich as House Bill 3657 in the 108th Congress. Its statement of purpose: "To preserve the cooperative, peaceful uses of space for the benefit of all humankind by prohibiting the basing of weapons in space and (by prohibiting) the use of weapons to destroy or damage objects in space that are in orbit, and for other purposes."

Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) introduced Carol Rosin's U. S. Space Preservation Act as House Bill 3657 on December 8, 2003. Further, she has written a Space Preservation Treaty to be introduced to nations of the world for signing through the United Nations to permanently ban basing of weapons in space.

In the past 30 years as Carol has worked hard to carry out Dr. von Braun's challenge to her, she has often thought of his warnings about the misuse of space and an "Enemy's List" that he said the American government was using to keep the media and public in support of Pentagon budgets.

– INTERVIEW –

Carol Rosin, President, Institute for Cooperation in Space and Space Preservation Trust Foundation, Ventura, California: "The message that he (Werner von Braun) was giving me continually was that we must prevent the weaponization of space from happening because otherwise the truth would never be officially acknowledged about who we were, who we are, as a human species in the universes.

Part B

to that was the way to achieve peace on this planet is to preserve the peace that there must be in space in order for there to be peace on Earth.

Q: YOU SAID 'UNIVERSES,' PLURAL?

'Universes,' is the way he put it to me. I had never heard that term before. I thought we lived in (the only) galaxy solar system universe. But he always used the word 'universes.'

Q: AS IF HE HAD KNOWLEDGE OF OTHER UNIVERSES?

Exactly.

Q: DID HE TALK WITH YOU SPECIFICALLY ABOUT KNOWLEDGE OF EXTRATERRESTRIAL BIOLOGICAL ENTITIES?

Dr. von Braun would have tears in his eyes every time – and he repeated this continuously to me when he talked about us in the galaxy – he would say 'with a hundred billion stars in our galaxy alone. What would make us think that we are the only life form?' That was a very typical, repeated quote.

The other one that he would say is that he knew that we must have peace in space in order to bring the truth in. The only time he used the word, 'extraterrestrial' and 'alien' – and he did this repeatedly as well – was when he spoke to me about the formula for war. That included the fact that when I entered the industry, we were in a supposed Cold War with Russia.

He would say, 'Let's start here where you are.' There are continuous wars and enemies identified in order to perpetuate these wars, always with the ultimate goal of seizing the high ground of outer space to dominate and control the minds of people on Earth so they would not be given the truth, truthful information about who we really are in the universes.

Q: WHAT WAS HIS DEFINITION OF WHAT WE REALLY ARE IN THE UNIVERSES?

Well, this is what he did not describe. I believe what was happening is that he was under threat.

American "Enemy's List" to Sustain War Mode and Pentagon Budgets

          o
            Soviet Union
          o
            Terorrists
          o
            Asteroids
          o
            Extraterrestrials

Q: THAT IS WHY HE GAVE YOU AN ENEMY'S LIST THAT WOULD BE PERPETUATED?

That's right. He repeated this continuously. He would say that starting where I entered the industry with the supposed Russian threat, but never actually existed ­ the Russians were made to be the enemy. Then there would be terrorists, Third World country threats. there would be an asteroid threat. They might even say to us to try to influence the public into believing that there are many reasons for why we should put weapons in space. There might be a reason to protect our assets in space.

But, the real one that he was always holding off on and would say again with tears filling his eyes every time he said this to me repeatedly was that the last card they are holding is the 'alien card,' the extraterrestrial card and none of them are hostile. In any way he could say those words, the intonation was always on, 'None of them are hostile. It's all a lie.' So, in other words, all the enemies that have been presented to us along the way ­ it's a lie with always the intention of seizing the high ground to keep the truth from us.

Q: MEANING THE IMPLICATION IS THAT THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT, PERHAPS EVEN IN COOPERATION WITH AUTHORITIES IN RUSSIA, HAVE PLAYED A GAME OF PERPETUATING ENEMIES IN ORDER TO KEEP THE MONEY FLOWING INTO THE WAR MACHINES?

Actually he (von Braun) never implied that the Russians were part of this. He implied to me that the kernel of it was in the United States and that this had to be stopped and he thought that I, as a woman in those days with curly hair and short skirts, could get into any meeting where a man could probably never say the things that I could.

At that time, he gave me the assignment of preventing the weaponization of space. He also mentioned that when he and the other scientists came here (Project Paper Clip) ­ so many rumors were spread about them, that they were Nazis and were horrible people and that was all lies.

Q: THAT WAS GERMANY AND PROJECT PAPER CLIP.

Yes, of course. I notice that even some people in the peace movement refer to von Braun and the scientists as people who started the Star Wars program (under Reagan). That's just not true. It's a lie. They were purely scientists who came here to be space and rocket scientists, but they were always sucked up into this system that has been existing in the old, obsolete earth-bound paradigm. At least that's as much intelligence as the population is given to keep us in the earth-bound paradigm. But these men were far ahead. These were space age people."

Q: DID HE GIVE YOU ANY SPECIFICS ABOUT WHO IN THE UNITED STATES WOULD STAND TO GAIN THE MOST FROM PERPETUATING A GAME OF WAR FOR MONEY AND POWER?

Yes, he described it not as a blame on just a certain group. He described it as the inexorably linked military-industrial-lab-university-NASA and other space agencies-intelligence community-government complex ­ that it was intertwined, but there was a group that knew all of it. He did not act as if he knew who it was.

– ET Threat to Perpetuate Military-Industrial-Corporate-Academic Complex –

Q: FROM YOUR PERSPECTIVE, THE GREATEST SECRET THAT WERNER VON BRAUN WOULD BE HIDING WOULD BE THE FACT THAT THE EXTRATERRESTRIAL BIOLOGICAL ENTITY IS A REALITY. BUT HIS CONCERN WAS THAT INSTEAD OF BEING HONEST ABOUT ITS MOTIVATION, THAT THE U. S. WOULD ULTIMATELY USE ETs AS ANOTHER THREAT IN ORDER TO PERPETUATE BUDGETS FOR THE PENTAGON?

Not just for the Pentagon, but aerospace industries, labs, universities and anyone else who has a job and makes a profit from keeping this a secret. Although most of the people in the industry don't even know there is this big secret of all time – and yes, you have articulated this very beautifully. You are not at all putting words in my mouth – that's exactly what I'm saying.

Except that it's not the influence of just people in the Pentagon. This is some how, as he would put it, inexorably linked to all the facets of profit-making, of so-called security and defense mechanisms, of people who just need a job to survive and pay for their kids' college education and also to keep the public stupid.

I have felt that since this happened, since I learned from the heart of von Braun, that this huge secret is being kept ­ it has to have something to do with the 'off-planet culture,' that I call OPC phenomenon ­ that in fact, it was so real that this man could hardly talk about this big secret and did not because of the threats to his life and probably to the lives of others who worked with him who might or might not have known. But he certainly did.

Q: WHY DOESN'T CHINA SPEAK OUT ABOUT ETs?

I did not put all this together for many years. I was one of the people in a state of denial myself. I was a high paid woman executive in an aerospace company who had been given an assignment from Werner von Braun, but always thought of myself as just an educator, a school teacher, to keep weapons out of space so that as he would repeat continuously, 'The truth would not only be revealed, disclosed' – that official acknowledgement has happened in different parts of the world, but not in the United States.

I'm an official adviser to China. I've talked with a lot of people over there and I feel they know the secret, but being what they consider to be the Middle Kingdom, they wait for other countries ­ including the United States to come forward. They are not what I would call initiators of something so powerful. But they are very much seekers of the truth and working on these issues.

Q: MEANING THEY ARE WAITING FOR THE UNITED STATES TO HOLD THAT GLOBAL PRESS CONFERENCE OF ALL CENTURIES TO SAY WE'RE NOT ALONE IN THE UNIVERSE, AND NOW WE ARE GOING TO INTRODUCE YOU TO EXTRATERRESTRIAL BIOLOGICAL ENTITIES?

I actually had years ago one of the (Chinese) scientists at a university tell me that that is what they were waiting for. And I said, 'Well, if you know the truth, why don't you go public with it?'

They said, 'Well we wait because we consider ourselves to be of the Middle Kingdom and we don't want to be aggressive in any way, even though (China) has been identified as one of the potential enemies against the United States. But they are not. And neither are the Russians or any other country that I know of except for the individuals or parts of cultures that we have antagonized so much that they are so angry with us at this time.

So, I think Werner von Braun saw this back in the 1970s. He died in 1977. Back into the 1940s and 1950s was when he started to become aware of what the potential benefits of outer space were to humanity.

– Must Prevent Weaponization of Space –

But what he always added on to his talks with me – that for years I did not say because of the ridicule factor – was this message that we must prevent the weaponization of space from happening and that the big lie is that none of them are hostile, talking about this list of potential enemies against whom we have been taught to fear and even hate – that none of them are hostile.

We are all essence and none of them are hostile haunted me for years until the early 2000s I started to learn about high level military intelligence, corporate people, who had already gone public by saying things like that, but also by emphasizing the fact that we must keep weapons out of space and that there is other life in the universe.

I'm just tuning into it myself and it has caused me to work with people around the world who want to get a Space Preservation Treaty signed and we do have a companion bill in the Congress that was introduced even before the treaty came forward by Congressman Dennis Kucinich (Dem-10th Congressional District, Ohio) and others who co-sponsored it to call for a ban on ALL space-based weapons. We don't have to study which ones. It would also prevent the destruction or damage of anything in space that is in orbit.

In other words, our satellites that we need to verify what is in space coming in (toward Earth) and what is on Earth so we can see the Earth to reduce and eliminate missiles and nuclear weapons and other dangerous and polluting technologies on the planet. This must be done – we must protect those satellites and they should NOT be used as 'force multipliers' in war games which is the old scenario. But that is happening.

Q: WHY DO YOU THINK ADVANCED INTELLIGENCE – ONE OR MORE OF THEM – WOULD EVEN ALLOW THE UNITED STATES OR ANY COUNTRY ON THIS PLANET TO DEVELOP WEAPONS IN SPACE? WHY WOULDN'T THEY INTERFERE BECAUSE IT IS TOO DANGEROUS?

From my information, they do not interfere. They will not, however, allow us to take our weapons and toxins into space. They will, however, let the human species do whatever it does to itself. That's the information I've been given and that's what I see happening. I have no evidence myself for this, but I've read that OPCs (Off-Planet Cultures) have shut down the attempt to put operational weapons in space. I have also been given information that they will not interfere with what we do.

However, there is a possibility that they would leave if we set off nuclear bombs, nuclear technology, and/or continue with the space-based weapons program. I am moving to Ecuador now, but we have an office still in Vancouver, B. C., Canada and people I'm working with here will continue in the United States. I'll be doing it from Ecuador.

But I'm 60 years old now and I've gone through this issue for 30 years now day and night, holding as von Braun did this piece of information about this big lie that's being told – this canopy of lies that especially in the U. S. and because we keep it such a big secret here – has been kept over our heads. It's like we live behind this veil of secrecy and so many of us who know pieces of it – whether it's intuitively or by experience or by a learning process – we keep way under the radar. We talk about it at dinner from a non-believing state to a giggle to an 'Oh, my God! This is real!'

Q: BUT, CAROL, IF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA HAS ALREADY MILITARIZED SPACE OF THIS PLANET, HOW COULD WE POSSIBLY ACHIEVE A TREATY NOW TO ELIMINATE SPACE-BASED WEAPONS?

Because we have not weaponized space. There are not operational weapons in space patrolling us at this time. We have just enough time – that's how – to get a Space Preservation Treaty signed into law. You can see this treaty draft on www.peaceinspace.com. You can also see the companion Space Preservation Act now in 2004 ­ the number is H. R. 3615 that's been introduced into the Congress (by Rep. Dennis Kucinich).

Congress in the U. S. and this Administration are not going to produce a ban on space-based weapons. In fact, the next administration might not either, UNLESS we get world leaders to sign the Space Preservation Treaty. That treaty getting signed would put the necessary pressure that we need on the U. S. Congress and Administration. So, the answer is now available to us, we have the bill in Congress and a real treaty to be signed.

Q: AND IF THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN, CAROL, WHAT IS THE WORST CASE SCENARIO IN YOUR MIND?

In my mind, it's inevitable obliteration of the human species. I believe that is a very possible reality. I think we are very close to it, we are in grave danger from any one of a number of manmade or natural disasters that could occur.

Q: BUT CHINA, FOR EXAMPLE, IS GOING TO BE GOING TO THE MOON SHORTLY AND THE U. S. IS CONCERNED ABOUT CHINA AS A POLITICAL FORCE ON THE EARTH. I CAN'T HELP BUT WONDER IF WE ARE HEADED TOWARD TERRITORIAL CONFLICTS ALREADY IN THE NEXT 5 OR 6 YEARS ABOUT WHO IS ON THE MOON.

We are headed toward territorial conflicts in space and on the moon. That's the whole point of this in the earth-bound context and paradigm. But China does not want weapons in space. Their leaders have said that for many decades. So has Russia said that. These are the two main space super powers with the United States.

Q: THAT'S WHY THE WERNER VON BRAUN STATEMENT THAT THE UNITED STATES WOULD USE AS AN ENEMY'S LIST EXTRATERRESTRIALS IS SIGNIFICANT HERE, BECAUSE WE WOULD THEN JUSTIFY SPACE-BASED WEAPONRY AGAINST EXTRATERRESTRIALS?

That we would justify space-based weapons against any country that the U. S. population and government leaders will buy into as long as that scenario holds.
By the way, everything that I've just said to you has already been proven to come true. In 1977, I was talking about the fact that there was going to be a Gulf War because I was in a meeting when it was being planned. In 1977! It's one of the reasons I woke up and resigned from my cushy position in the industry.

I couldn't believe there was a chart on the wall of potential enemies against which we were going to build space-based weapons that I and most people in the room had never even heard of. This is how these wars are planned and I went forward with that story for years. And then three months before the first Gulf War started, my husband as my witness will tell you that I sat down watching TV waiting for the war with even my husband saying, 'Carol, you've flipped out.' You've gone over the top. No one is talking about a war in the Gulf.'

Because there was a certain amount of money in the space-based weapons program that I was told would be in it when they were ready to pulling space-based weapons to test the next phase of weapons. By the way, part of the formula that I didn't mention earlier that is part of the creating the scenario of enemies and wars leading to the potential extraterrestrial threat is that they have to have these wars in order to dump the old weapons, test the new weapons, and rationalize the budgets for the next set of weapons.

This is what they educate the public and the leaders about in order to get their next enormous budgets. Notice how in each war, if you track the weapon systems that have been used, they are aiming toward the most advanced weaponry, the most horrific weaponry, that the human species has mostly yet to imagine. But that's what is being tested in each war, aiming at always seizing the high ground and putting these weapons up in space.

Because if you put these weapons up in geosynchronous orbit just 22,300 miles above the earth in just three spots in geosynchronous orbit, you hit the whole footprint of the entire Earth. you can control the Earth from that location in just three spots. Imagine what they could do with the highest forms of weapons technology.

– 2012? –

Q: DID DR. VON BRAUN EVER SAY ANYTHING TO YOU ABOUT THE YEAR 2012 AS BEING SOME KIND OF END YEAR? THAT THERE WOULD BE DANGER IF SOMETHING WAS NOT ACCOMPLISHED BY THAT YEAR?

No, he did not ever mention that to me, but what he did say about the timing is that the timing was critical to keep weapons out of space. His timing was with a sense of urgency that, 'Before the momentum of funding vested interests and technology is put into place that is as dangerous as is the deployment of operational weapons themselves, we must achieve a ban on all space-based weapons on this planet.'"

THE CASE FOR EXOPOLITICS: USHERING IN A COSMIC DIALOGUE By Come Carpentier de Gourdon

Index_05EDITOR'S NOTE: According to a well-placed observer, Come Carpentier de Gourdon's presentation (below) at the Rhodos World Public Forum was well received, including some present and former officials from various governments asking for more information on Exopolitics and the Extraterrestrial issue. No one raised any doubts about the information.  We are also informed that The Russian Government is closely associated with the convening and organisation of the event through the Glory of Russia Foundation. The Conference co-Chairman is Vladimir Yakunin who is seen as one of President Putin's "heirs apparent".  Mr. Putin has announced he will retire in 2008.

THE CASE FOR EXOPOLITICS: USHERING IN A COSMIC DIALOGUE
(By Come Carpentier de Gourdon)

EXOPOLITICS, insofar as it concerns the issue of mankind’s contacts with intelligent non-human lifeforms originating outside our planet, has an already long history. Since Antiquity, human beings have pondered this existential question: “are we alone in the universe?” and have sought to answer it according to their experience, intuition or imagination, with fear, hope, humor or incredulity.

The Russian nation has played a distinguished role in the area of exopolitics since the early part of the twentieth century, not only through the visionary work of its science-fiction writers since some of its pioneering research scientists, aeronautical  engineers and the very fathers of its space exploration program showed great concern about and remarkable intellectual openness to the prospect of coming into contact with other advanced civilizations in or from other planets or in outer space. It behooves the Government of the Russian Federation to take a leading role in the process to help disclose the information that is so far known only to a small circle of military and civilian officials and technicians and independent investigators. A well known expert is Yurko Bondarchuk, the author of the book “UFO sightings, Landings and Abductions – The Documentary Evidence” (1979). Another respected investigator is Yuri Stroganov who has worked for many years in connection with the Russian UFO Research Centre and has analysed and reported on a large number of UFO observation and landing cases.

As eminent an officer as Soviet Air Force Colonel General I. Maltsev has given very precise and enlightening accounts on the flying performances and capabilities of “alien” space and aircraft, pointedly noting that no man-made airborne vehicles were, to his knowledge, able to display such an advanced technology. Soviet Academician V. Troitsky  also consistently supported UFO studies and favoured the public dissemination of the information  gained in official specialized circles, as for example when he helped declassify in the nineties the well known “Dudinsh” military film made at an Air base in Riga in 1961 during the test flights of a  new Soviet warplane.

Some valuable information on the state of the research in Russia is to be found in Paul Stonehill’s “The Soviet UFO Files” (1998) and in “UFO-USSR” (2005) by Mantle and Stonehill. A substantial amount of documentation has also become available to support long-standing allegations that some “alien craft” recovered on Soviet territory were stored on the Zhivkur air and space base.

The Soviet Research Program into UFOS carried out under Government control from 1978 to 1990 submitted reports which evinced the open-mindedness of its scientific and military elites with regard to that reality even if a lot of evidence seems to have been classified for national security reasons.

However this presentation is mainly based on a string of revelations gradually made in the last decades in the USA and in Europe, following the extensive but mostly secret research and observation programs conducted by the American government and by some Western European and Latin American states. As a result I have relied mostly on the confirmed information coming from the West.

In 1998 and 1999 two seminars were held “by invitation only” in the USA for experts to discuss confidentially and freely the possible consequences of confirmed and proved contacts between human beings and Extraterrestrial intelligent creatures. The 26 participants included one 3-star general from the US army, several university professors and high-level business executives as well as some professional and eminent futurogists. The American expert Michael Lindemann  is to provide a report on those meetings at a  conference to be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA in November 2006 under the auspices of the Majestic Documents study group (www.majesticdocuments.com)  headed by Ryan Wood.

On May 9th, 2006, a Press conference was held in Toronto Canada, by Dr. Steven Greer, director of the Disclosure Project (USA) (www.disclosureproject.org)
and the Hon. Paul Hellyer, former Defence Minister and Deputy Prime Minister of Canada (www.exopolitics.com):

“(its) goal…[was] to present witness testimony by Brigadier Generals, Naval Photo experts, military officers, ICBM launch commanders, an FAA Crash Site Sr. Inspector, NORAD Air Traffic Controllers and pilots that confirms authentic, first hand encounters with intelligently controlled unidentified aerial craft of non-Earth origin”.

“Each witness has stated that they are willing to testify, under oath, before Congress or Parliament as to the truth of their testimony”

[The] Press was also able to view copies of original government documents and National Security memoranda that confirm a coordinated involvement with and a high level of interest in global UFO activity by military and national security agencies.

Abundant evidence and witness testimony also exists that establishes the existence of related covert projects that have developed advance energy and propulsion technologies that could free mankind from its dependency on oil, gas, coal and nuclear power.

Paul Hellyer (who was also the Minister of Defence in the cabinet of PM Lester Pearson) in some of his public interventions on the subject has been quite outspoken about his concern regarding the ongoing weaponisation of  space led by the US Pentagon. He has described the future as “a choice between Star Dreams and Star Wars” and has accused the American Space Command of actively preparing to attack the alien visitors with satellite-borne electromagnetic particle beam and laser weapons. There are various independent confirmations for the existence of one or more secret US military space stations and space planes already deployed in orbit in the pursuit of “full spectrum” dominance of the planetary stratosphere and surface.

Like other far-sighted and informed leaders, Paul Hellyer has emphasized the urgent need to seek instead cooperative relations with Extraterrestrials. He writes: “…Canada should accept the long-standing invitation of (US) Congressman Dennis Kucinich of Ohio to launch a conference to seek approval of an international treaty to ban weapons in space. That would be a positive Canadian contribution…” (Paul Hellyer, in Globe and Mail, May 15h 2003, www.commondreams.org/views03/0515-10.htm).

Indeed the US Government at least is moving in the opposite direction, according to a revealing article written by Giuseppe Ansera fore the PINR Network (Power and Interest News Network, www.pinr.com) In May 2005, the US Air Force formally asked President George W. Bush to issue a presidential directive allowing the deployment of defensive and offensive weapons into orbit. That directive is to replace decree PDD-NSC-49 issued by the Clinton Administration which effectively put a moratorium on the militarisation of space. In April 2005 the USA launched the XSS-11 orbital micro-satellite, specifically designed to disturb and destroy the military and civilian satellites belonging to other states. Washington’s unilateral withdrawal from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty in 2002 confirms its intention to weaponise space, thus launching a new arms race with even higher stakes than the previous ones.

The Pentagon is  actively studying many other options, such as deploying “mirror” satellites redirecting laser beams shot from the earth’s surface against any orbital object or planetary target or satellites to send super-powerful (high frequency and amplitude) radio waves to be used as weapons. Another kind of weapon is called “rods from God” and consists of orbiting platforms capable of launching satellite-guided tungsten-rods onto hostile targets at a speed of 11,000 kms per hours, enabling to penetrate hardened missile silos or deep-buried underground installations. The US envisages deploying the “rods from God” system by 2016. They can also be used against orbiting objects and some foreign experts believe that the US Command intends to use them against alien visiting spacecraft.

The book MAJIC EYES ONLY (2005) , by Ryan S. Wood  is one of many that make “a solid case for the existence of deeply classified government research on many of the retrieved vehicles as well as of recovered extraterrestrial biological entities” in the words of Paul M. Rybski, PH.D., Chair Dept. of Physics and Director, Whitewater Observatory, University of WI, Whitewater, USA.

Wood presents 74 UFO crashes from 1897 to the present, supported by compelling evidence in the form of official documents, eyewitnesses and in some cases physical evidence.

The modern UFO era however begins, if only for the sake of convenience, with World War II. Many sightings reported by German and Allied pilots and military personnel: “KRAUT FIREBALLS”, “FOO FIGHTERS”

In 1941, President F.D. Roosevelt set up IPU: Interplanetary Phenomenon Unit (IPU), possibly following UFO crash reported at Cape Girardeau (Missouri) that year.

On February 25th , 1942  there was the famous case of the UFO  that cruised for hours over Los Angeles and was the target of a futile barrage of US anti-aircraft artillery. The report on that widely reported incident which was witnessed by a large part of the city’s population was sent by General George Marshall to President F.D. Roosevelt. Photographs appeared on the front-page of the local newspapers in the following days.

At the end of World War II, Operation PAPERCLIP was launched by the US Government to bring German scientists to the USA in the interest of National Security. Some of them, Wernher von Braun – the “father’ of the US space exploration program -, Siegfried Knemeyer, the former head of the RLM (Ministry of Aeronautics), Hans Amtmann, Alexander Lippisch, Robert Sarbacher and others seem to have been in possession of critical knowledge in the field of aeronautics, space flight and UFO technologies. They came to America in 1946. Some of them worked at Air Materiel Command  (AMC) at Wright Field (later Wright-Patterson) in Ohio.

Other prominent scientific names associated with UFO research, with a significant degree of credibility are Robert Oppenheimer, Edward Teller, Hermann Oberth and John von Neumann. In the USSR the eminent rocket scientists Felix Zigel was reportedly involved in this high level scientific quest.

On July 4th 1947,  the famous Roswell incident took place: one or more UFOs reportedly crashed around the Los Alamos-White Sands-Alamo Gordo nuclear research and military testing ground in New Mexico.

“The evidence points to the fact that Roswell was a real incident and that indeed an alien craft did crash, and that material  was recovered from the crashsite”.

NASA astronaut Edgar Mitchell, statement to the Press in 1999. Mitchell, a member of the Disclosure Project has acknowledged publicly that he knows of a “UFO-coverup” engineered and kept by what he calls a “cabal of insiders” within the US Government. An indirect confirmation has been given by New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson who recently officially asked the Federal Government to release the true facts pertaining to the Roswell 1947 episode, so far without success.

Several military authorities involved with the event and with the Government-ordered
cover-up have since confirmed that the Roswell incident involved a real UFO crash. The incident led to the creation, on the recommendation of investigating officer, General Nathan Twining, of the high-power Special Studies Group (SSG) also known as MAJESTIC or MJ-12, headed by Dr. Vannevar Bush, Scientific Adviser to the US President, according to records provided in many research books (www.majesticdocuments.com).

Two additional levels of security classification (secrecy) were added: MAJIC and UMBRA, above Top Secret, specifically to protect the information gained about Alien visits and technology. In his books on the topic written mostly in the sixties, Major Donald Keyhoe documented the struggle within the US Air Force between those who favoured open sharing of information on UFOs and the “silence group” which claimed that the public was not prepared to accept this revelation and wanted to keep all unexplained reports secret while dismissing all those that could be and broadly denying the existence of a UFO phenomenon.

On or around July 4th 1947 at least one “alien” craft crashed at San Agustin (NM) and a number of artifacts were recovered on the site. They are shown on a video filmed by well known investigator Art Campbell.

The special, “layered Bismuth/Magnesium” alloy fragments found on the sites have been analysed in qualified laboratories and reveal special properties, including continuous release of energy when submerged in water. The research is extensively documented and visual evidence as well as results of the tests are available to the public.

In September 1947, within eight weeks after the Roswell incident, the CIA was created as well as the NSA (National Security Agency) and the NRO (National Reconnaissance Office) both super-secret, by President Truman. It is not implied that those agencies were set up solely or mainly in response to the emergency triggered by the Roswell events but it appears in the light of documentary records that the perception of a “threat from outer space” played a role in the decision to charter and fund those organizations. It is significant that various former agents of the CIA and the NSA have gone public in recent years about the UFO-related programs that they claim they were associated with  (e.g. Don Sherman, author of the book “Above Black” (www.aboveblack.com).

In fact, CIA’s predecessor CIG (Central Intelligence Group) had already investigated various UFO cases, including “ghost rockets” in Sweden in 1946  as attested by the now declassified CIG Intel Report dated, April 9, 1947.

Also in 1947, the Advanced Study Group (ASG) within Air Materiel Command, was set up under the direction of Dr. Don Zimmerman, apparently to analyse “alien” technology and its possible uses for the US military forces.

On 5th April 1948, a Top Secret Estimate prepared by the US Air Force Air technical Intelligence Centre from Project SIGN (first called Project SAUCER) concluded that UFOs were interplanetary aircraft. However, Chief of Armed Forces Staff General Hoyt Vandenberg (who is listed as a member of the super-secret MAJESTIC 12  Committee) rejected that conclusion, without giving any reason and disbanded the SIGN Project Group. Later, Project Grudge was formed, seemingly with the secret agenda to publicly affirm the unreality of the UFO phenomenon.

On May 22nd, 1949  US Secretary of Defense James Forrestal (also one of the first 12 members of MAJESTIC) committed suicide under strange and suspicious circumstances while being kept at Bethesda Naval Hospital under 24-hr Marine guard for treatment of an alleged depression. The rumor since is that he wanted to break the silence on UFOs and make a public statement or that he was not trusted to keep the secret.

There are various significant statements made by American Presidents and high-level officials on the subject of UFOs. Most of them deny the reality of the phenomenon but a few were far more candid, such as the following:

“I  can assure you that flying saucers, given that they exist, are not constructed by any power on this earth”

President Harry Truman, White House Press Conference, April 4 1950

“Behind the scene high-level military officers are soberly concerned about UFOs”, Admiral Roscoe Hillenkoetter, first Director of Central Intelligence in the New York Times. February 28th, 1960). We may also quote here the statement by the Secretary General of the UN, U Thant about the extraordinary importance of the UFO issue for mankind at the end of that decade.

A declassified document from British Intelligence dated May 6, 1950 but only recently released to the public under the UK’s equivalent to the US freedom of information Act (FOIA), refers to the First Annual report of MJ-12 to report that “the samples extracted from bodies found in New Mexico have yielded new strains of a retro-virus not yet totally understood but give promise of the ultimate bio-weapon”.

It is not known if this statement bears any connection to the much later discovery of the HIV and other lethal “new” viruses. A ground-breaking book on this subject authored by Dr. Bob Wood and Nick Redfern is entitled “In search of the Alien Viruses: Crashed UFOs, MJ12 and Bio-warfare” (2006).

In December 6th, 1950 the US armed forces geared up to a state of emergency following multiple UFO sightings in various parts of the country and a massive crash, recorded by a Majestic-12 Briefing Document to President Eisenhower, on the Texas border with Mexico at El Indio Guerrero. USAF Colonel Willingham reportedly visited the crash site and retrieved debris.

The feeling among military command on that occasion seems to have been that the country was under attack from outer space and that fear was to return in the following years. General Douglas McArthur publicly vented that apprehension in his well known statement about a future war with invaders from other worlds. In fact one is led to the conclusion that the military leadership of the USA has often confronted the space visitors with its most modern weapons in the last five decades and that, even if communication and even some limited exchange program may have taken place (see the Exopolitics.org website for a review of the available records supporting that possibility), it has not been as frequent as perilous head-to-head encounters in which it is confirmed that a number of planes, helicopters and pilots were lost by the Air Force and the Navy during interception, dog fight and hot pursuit attempts.

A large number of UFO photographs taken from NASA-operated rockets, shuttles and space stations by astronauts in orbit and on the moon has now been made available on the Internet and the widely reported case of the British hacker Gary McKinnon earlier this year has brought one unexpected confirmation of the existence of “edited” or “airbrushed” photos for which the unretouched originals are kept in secret NASA, NORAD and USAF archives (The Guardian, July 9th, 2005 et al.).

In 1952, reacting to “a new rash of sightings” all over the USA and elsewhere in the world the CIA formed the Special Study Group (SSG) within the Office of Scientific Intelligence (OSI) ( according to a Memo from Ralph L. Clark, Acting Assistant Director OSI to DDI Robert Amory Jr.)

On September 25th of  that year a Joint Logistic Plan was prepared by MAJESTIC-12. It included a psychological warfare plan, an unconventional warfare plan, a cover and deception plan and others.In April 1954, the document SOM1-01 (Top Secret Majic Eyes Only Special Operations Manual for recovery operations) of “foreign craft and technology” was brought out. These documents are now available on the Internet (cf. www.majesticdocuments.org et alia).

It is interesting that when some information does leak out, it is countered by the deliberate dissemination of disinformation to mask the facts and discredit the disclosures by spreading wholly or partly false – and often patently absurd - allegations. However it seems that genuine information is being gradually released in a controlled manner in order to prepare the public or at least those who are ready to accept the truth.

Some of the many covert government projects dedicated to the UFO subject in North America were ANGEL DUST, TWINKLE, POUNCE, GRUDGE, MOONDUST, MAGNET (in Canada, from 1950 to 1954, which led to the creation of a “flying saucer” detection station at Shirley Bay near Ottawa, funded by the Canadian Federal Government from 1952 to 1954), BLUE FLY and others for monitoring, reporting on and capturing or retrieving alien objects, controlled by the CIA, NSA, Navy, Air Force etc…(more than 1000 pages of official documents have been  released under FOIA regarding MOONDUST and BLUE FLY).

In 1953, the CIA-sponsored Robertson Panel set policies for US Government agencies regarding UFOs. Its conclusion was “No evidence that UFOs pose a specific security threat to the USA but reporting of UFOs might trigger mass hysteria”.

The panel recommended using the media to discredit (debunk) UFO sightings. This is the policy being broadly followed the world over until today.

In August 1954, the magazine AVIATION WEEK AND SPACE TECHNOLOGY reported that  astronomer Dr. Lincoln La Paz was tracking two artificial satellites orbiting the Earth and 400 and 600 miles above the surface.

In 1954, CFB Suffield in Alberta was designated by the Canadian Government as a protected area for  UFOs to land (according to an investigative report by the Ottawa Journal of July 1967). The idea behind the secret project was that if any alien craft  tried to make contact with mankind, it could land at the DRB station without being shot down by defence interceptors. Revealingly, it was Canada’s main testing ground for chemical and biological weapons.

In 1955, Project Silver Bug was developed at Wright Patterson AFB. It set out to build a “saucer powered by gas-turbine engines”. It was only one of the earliest of of many endeavours to replicate UFO technologies, many contracted out to leading military-industrial companies (such as Lockheed (now Lockeed Martin), Northrop, McDonnell Douglas, General Dynamics, GE, Westinghouse, Boeing etc…). A seminal contribution was made by the American engineer T. T. Brown who in the early 1950s was able to build a prototype Flying Saucer for the US Air Force and who founded NICAP (National Investigative Committee for Aerial Phenomena) in 1956, one of the major organizations dedicated to UFO research. His lifework is documented in the biography written by P. Schatzkin “Defying Gravity: The Parallel Universe of T. Townsend Brown” (2006).

Other “back-engineering projects” according to NSC’s (National Security Council and at one time the special assistant to General Trudeau, head of the Pentagon’s Foreign Technology Desk) Colonel Philip Corso and others included special materials (ceramics, alloys, bio-textiles), lasers, fiber-optics, solid state electronics, compact discs, supercomputers, biotronic and bio-computer devices, magneto-aero and hydro-dynamics, magneto-gravitation, particle beam weapons, Electromagnetic Pulse engines, stealth technology, night-vision technology, cold fusion, neutronic reactors etc…
The XXth century Scientific Revolution has been largely seeded, it appears, by outer space “visitors”. The “reverse engineering” was conducted in part under the supervision of the US Armed forces, Intelligence Agencies and later through DARPA (Defence Advanced Research Agency) and other Defense-related organizations and civilian “fronts” such as the National Institute for Discovery Science (NIDS), headed by Richard Dolan, which often sub-contracted or “farmed out” specific segments of the research to private companies on the familiar “need-to-know” basis.

In November  1963, President JF Kennedy dictated a Memo addressed to the CIA, directing it to cooperate with the USSR to “explain in a credible way the impact of knowns and unknowns” in air and space exploration. He wanted cooperation between NASA and the Soviet Science Academy, a prospect to which many of the “conservative”military and industrial leaders of the USA were bitterly opposed since they regarded UFO-related “black” research projects as essential in the arms race in order to gain superiority in the cold war. Whether JFK’s policies on the matter were a factor behind the apparently very high level decision to assassinate him remains an open question.

There is now a large number of declassified or leaked but verified official reports from various Air Forces, Navies, armies and international military structures such NATO, NORAD et al. about encounters, incidents, chases, dogfights and confrontations with “alien” spacecraft exhibiting properties far superior to any available in the conventional arsenals of earthly powers. For example, there are detailed records about the “Maelstrom missile shutdown” (one among several cases) when in 1967, visiting UFOs deactivated a number of Montana-based ICBM missiles in their underground silos. A surprisingly high number of military officers of several countries, including 3-star generals, air marshals and admirals, not to mention astronauts in the  Apollo program (Russell Schweikart, Brian O’Leary, Buzz Aldrin, Scott Carpenter  among others) have admitted publicly to having seen or been shown evidence of UFOs that, in their best judgment, could not have been of human, terrestrial origin. CNN recorded that President Clinton’s former chief of staff John Podesta asked the Pentagon at a news conference in October of 2002 to lift the UFO cover up (http://archives.cnn.com/2002/TECH/space/10/22/ufo.records/index.html).

The late eminent Harvard professor of psychiatry  and Pulitzer prize winner Dr.John E. Mack also became known for his extensive and far-reaching investigations into various aspects of the UFO—EBE (Extra-terrestrial Biological Entities) reality and its implications.

Any attempt to explain UFOs as being man-made, earth-built craft requires us to assume that there are human groups so technologically advanced and powerful that the underlying theory is far more difficult to believe than the simple admission that we are being visited by creatures from other worlds or “dimensions” within an open inter-connected universe where life thrives. So far, most of us (especially our political, religious and scientific leaders) have been in the situation of aborigines isolated in a small island in the Pacific, unable to accept that there may be other lands beyond the horizon inhabited by other races of men, much more powerful than they are.

We can only mention in passing here that three types of well known, abundantly documented and scientifically investigated, significant, long-standing phenomena are  directly or indirectly related to UFOS:

-Cattle mutilations

-Crop Circles

-Subcutaneous Implants, “tagging” and abductions of human beings.

International official policy on the UFO/EBE (Extra-terrestrial Biological Entity) issue appears to have been closely coordinated between the leading military powers, through NATO (reportedly within P.I.40, 54/12) and bilateral contacts between the USA and the USSR to prevent uncontrolled disclosures and leaks. As noted earlier occasional leaks have however been permitted (perhaps because they were not always avoidable) and even encouraged, with “plausible deniability” built in.

Science fiction, served by the Hollywood film industry has provided a bridge to the general public, to spread awareness, test reactions and manipulate information by passing some factual data as fantasy to entertain the masses.

Some States have nonetheless retained a degree of autonomy and transparency about UFOS and have conducted their own investigations for decades, showing how seriously they take this subject. The Brazilian armed forces for instance have shown, at least at  time, a welcome open minded, objective approach, openly accepting the “possibility” that the Earth is being visited by extra-terrestrial travelers who seem to be, at least in certain cases, far more intellectually and technologically advanced than we are. The People’s Republic of China seems to have followed a rather open and  objective investigative policy too in recent years but the British Defence forces have also in certain instances (as in the famous landings at Randlesham) baldly acknowledged that they were confronted with an Extra-terrestrial reality.

Canadian Lawyer Alfred Lambremont Webre has launched the Exopolitics Initiative from Vancouver, in consultation with various agencies of the Canadian Government, through the Institute for  Cooperation in Space  (ICIS, www.peaceinspace.com) and on the basis of UN General Assembly Decision 33/426, 1978 which says: “The GA invites interested Member States to take appropriate steps to coordinate on a national level scientific research and investigation into extraterrestrial life, including unidentified flying objects and to inform the Secretary-General…”

Webre believes that mankind’s preparation for open contacts with Extraterrestrials must rest on four pillars: disclosure of the ET presence, a ten year period of public education, the adoption of a permanent ban on space weapons and the initiation of citizen diplomacy  with alien civilizations. He promotes a global signature campaign in support of a petition to the UNO to ban weapons and warfare in space and for an international space preservation treaty to be drafted at a global conference. It is noteworthy that the Russian Federation and the People’s Republic of China are amongst the nations that support such a treaty meant to stop the accelerating arms race in space.

A.L. Webre was asked by US President Jimmy Carter in 1978 to start a project to establish communication with the Alien visitors from the Stanford Research Institute (SRI). The President was overruled by the Pentagon which forced cancellation of the Project and compelled Carter to renege on his pledge to make UFO official evidence and research available to the public.

The Exopolitics Project is based on data derived from the scientific remote viewing research carried out by Dr. Harold Puthoff and Dr. Russell Targ, at SRI. Their work uses the existence of an alleged super-neural connection of human beings to the alien visitors that has been an object of investigation for decades.

It also takes into account the research undertaken under the “Star Kids” project conducted by Dr. Richard Boylan and other behaviourial and social scientists.

The information supplied through this source is that there is what may be described as “a loosely organized spiritual government of our Milky Way galaxy”. Some of those higher lifeforms seem to have played a role, possibly a determinant role in our own biological and psychic evolution as human beings in the remote past according to various, independent but converging reports.

Earth is under observation, some say under some sort of quarantine, while mankind operates its transition towards full contact with and admission into the interplanetary Cosmic Community. Contacts with mankind are so far relatively infrequent and surreptitious. They are made difficult by the obvious and immense superiority of the “visitors” with regard to humans which limits our ability to understand their motivations and their methods. The fact, for example, that they manipulate the space-time continuum through their propulsion technology results in their ability to switch dimensions, seemingly cross over into parallel universes and thus escape to a large degree the effects of some fundamental laws of nature as they apply to us. Hence the conventional, materialistic perspective inherited mostly from nineteenth century science does not make it easy to admit the evidence of the EBE’s presence.

However there is a growing risk of human and planetary self-destruction by war or ecological exhaustion.

The choice is now between collective suicide and a leap to the next stage of mental and biological evolution.

The Exopolitics Initiative advocates a decade of contact through public diplomacy with the Extra-terrestrial intelligent beings who are active  on and around the earth since several decades at least and who seem to harbour no hostile or predatory designs. On the contrary some of them at least exhibit real concern for our survival as a species and for the ecological health of the planet. Lt. Colonel Wendelle Stevens (USAF, Rtd.) is one expert who has analysed data collected over sixty years leading him to the conclusion that the Extraterrestrials who visit us have peaceful intentions.

The Dialogue between Civilisations will have to include, sooner or later, those beings and cultures that are not human, in the “homo sapiens” category but which clearly have a  presence on our planet and a stake in the future of terrestrial and human life. This issue must be brought into the mainstream. It can no longer remain confined to fringe groups of “spiritualists”, “New Agers” or dedicated “UFOlogists”. Neither can it be left to the care of secretive and shadowy military organizations that are primarily devoted to expanding the power of the states they serve and thereby their own influence and resources. In his farewell message to the nation, President Eisenhower warned of the danger posed by the uncontrolled ambition and greed of the US (and transnational)  “military industrial complex”.

Star Wars or Star Dreams? Honorable Paul Hellyer: Extraterrestrial Civilizations and World Peace Conference

Star Wars or Star Dreams?
Honorable Paul Hellyer,
Keynote Address
Extraterrestrial Civilizations and World Peace Conference
Sponsored by the Exopolitics Institute
Kailua-Kona Hawaii
10 June, 2006

[Note: Underlined words are the speaker’s emphasized words. Transcriber, Gesan Lahman]

Introduction by Conference Convenor, Dr Michael Salla
September 25 of last year was a very special day… What made that day a very special one, was that there was an event in Toronto, Canada, where a number of people spoke about exopolitics. And one of the people that did speak at that event is our keynote speaker for tonight. His background is one as a senior politician within the Canadian government. He worked in the administration of Lester Pearson, from 1963-67, as the Minister of Defense. The main policy that he was involved with at the time was the unification of the Canadian defense forces. So Canada has one defense force rather than four as in the US. One of the things that he did encounter during that process was a concerted effort by the administration, the American administration at the time  –  the Johnson administration - to promote [anti-ballistic weapons] …, presumably to shoot down ballistic missiles. So this was one of the things that the Pearson government was opposed to. Paul Hellyer, as Minister For Defense, was solidly behind that policy.

Well, in that event in Toronto, last year, Mr. Hellyer came forward, very courageously, to state what he believed was happening based on the research that he had done, as a consequence of the Peter Jennings special that had happened in February of 2005, where Peter Jennings, through that show, “Seeing Is Believing”, laid out the evidence that he believed made the UFO phenomenon something real. This was something that Mr. Hellyer saw as very intriguing. He did some research on Philip Corso, Sr., the author of “The Day After Roswell”, and found that much of what Mr. Corso had discussed was, in fact, occurring.

So, I’m not going to go into that because I think he’ll probably discuss that himself. But, let me say that what Mr. Hellyer has done is he has gone beyond the traditional focus on, “Are UFOs real? Are they in the sky? Is there enough evidence?”, and he raises the very significant policy questions that exist here. He’s asking questions such as, “Are the weapons that are being deployed in space now really intended for ballistic missiles from rogue nations, as we are told? Or are they being used to target extraterrestrial vehicles?” He asks these significant policy questions, such as “Are the extraterrestrials the enemy, as one finds evidence for in terms in the thinking of the US military?” He asks these very important policy questions such as, “What is happening with this technology? If extraterrestrial vehicles are visiting the Earth, and if this technology is being recovered and being developed, why don’t we see it? Why isn’t it somehow being released out into the public realm? Who are the people making these key decisions over all of these processes? Why isn’t there transparency? Why isn’t there accountability?” These are very important policy questions.

I’m thrilled that someone of the stature of Mr. Paul Hellyer has raised these issues and brought them into the public debate. I think this is something that will educate many, many thousands, and millions, of people over the years ahead, and months ahead even, as to the very important issues that we all have to grapple with; that these are not just academic debates, but there are vital policy issues that surround us and that have been kept out of the public realm for too long.  I’m, now I’m honored to welcome Mr. Hellyer who will bring these to the conference. Thank you.

[audience applauding]

Keynote Address by the Hon Paul Hellyer
Thank you. Thank you very much, Michael. That much too generous introduction reminded me that if my late mother were here, because she was my mother she’d believe every word of it. If my late father were here he would probably, being a realist, want to know who you were talking about. Or, as General Eisenhower would say, “It was like chewing gum. Sweet. OK to taste for a moment or two, but for heaven’s sake, don’t swallow it!” I am delighted to participate in this conference, and would like to thank Dr. Michael Salla and his committee for the invitation. As indicated in the promo, my message is divided into two main themes. First, who is actually running the United States and other major western countries?

[audience applauds and cheers]

PH: And second, what are the consequences of the long-time cover-up of extraterrestrial intelligence and advanced technology? It appears that real governanment has passed from elected accountable representatives of the people, to an unelected, unaccountable elite group of senior government officials and industrial leaders, an Industrial Military Complex, whose agenda is incompatible with the needs and desires of the population at-large. At least that is my unshakeable conviction.

[audience applauds]

PH: Evidence indicates that the survival of the planet as a reasonably friendly and hospitable environment is at stake, and that vested interests may be blocking plans to save it before it is too late. Even worse, the Military Industrial Complex, that General Dwight Eisenhower warned us about, is creating and producing weapons systems designed to confront visitors from space and, in the process,] is proceeding to a situation which could be a sure-fire recipe for a possible conflict. One hesitates to contemplate the unknown and potentially disastrous consequences. Only an early and complete disclosure of the truth can save us from our folly.

Conference speakers, from left: the Hon Paul Hellyer, Dr Michael Salla, and Ambassador John McDonald
If anyone had suggested a year ago today that today I would  be here making a speech in Hawaii, June 2006, on the subject of the extraterrestrial presence on planet Earth, and how the visitors and their technology may impact our future, I would have been absolutely astonished!

[audience laughter]

I would have been flabberghasted! I probably would have laughed out loud. Or I might have said, “Well, you must know something that I don’t know.” And if I had said that, of course I would have been right! Anyone who has spent the time, and made the effort to inform himself or herself on this subject would have been light years ahead of me in knowledge and understanding! I didn’t even know how much I didn’t know because I had no inkling of how much there was to know!

When I was Minister Of Defense in the 1960s, I received reports of sightings with the usual explanations. The majority of investigations, as in other places, had revealed that the sightings were natural phenomena. The others were simply designated “Unexplained”. I was far too busy, as Michael indicated, integrating the Canadian armed forces, to ask the kind of question necessary to peak my curiosity.

I was interested that Philip Corso, (Jr.) was talking this afternoon about the Air Force hogging the lion’s share of the technology. That is precisely the reason why many years ago I did something that at the time was considered courageous  --  which certainly amounted to a war of another kind  --  and that was to lop off the heads of the Army, the Navy, and the Air Force, and to create a Canadian Armed Force. Subsequent ministers have undone most of the good that was done at the time, but it did set a model for at least 8 years, I think. Canada had the most efficient armed force in the world. There was not that kind internecine bickering that you find between services and, consequently, not as much waste, duplication and triplication. But in any event, that was what I was doing instead of worrying about UFOs, about which I knew nothing.

In later years  I was occasionally contacted by someone investigating the subject, and asked what I knew. My sense was that I was not believed when I explained truthfully that I knew nothing apart from the cursory reports that I had scanned. The closest that I have come personally to an alleged encounter occurred at Arundel Lodge, in Muskoka -- this is the Lake District north of Toronto  --  where my late wife and I ran a small tourist resort; an old farmhouse and 10 cabins, for 45 years, and where we had a very family-like clientele that came back year after year, ultimately to the second and third and finally fourth generations.

We had some interesting habits there. One of them was that some of our guests, on occasion, would meet around the campfire, on a big rock, known as Fern Rock, for a little song and chatter in the evening. Naturally they would take the precaution of bringing a little firewater to lubricate the vocal cords and ward off the chill of the night.

One night, as often happened, the Jack Daniels bourbon was the poison-of-choice. A couple of hours later a very bright light appeared in the southern sky, directly across the bay. It could have been an airplane, but it zigged and zagged across the horizon in a very erratic manner, very much like some of the exhibits we’ve been shown in the last day and a half. Some thought it might be an airplane, while others insisted that it was a UFO. The following morning some positions had changed with the consensus being that it must have been the Jack Daniels that had been responsible for the zigging and the zagging. There were two or three holdouts, however, who had had nothing at all to drink. Their conviction that it had in fact been a UFO remained unshakeable, and it was their testimony that persuaded me to include the incident in a little book I wrote entitled, “Arundel Lodge”.

Well, my busy business continued after I left government. I’m afraid I reproved Parkinson’s Law many times over. Dr. Parkinson was another distinguished Australian academic. And that Law was that work expands to fill the time available. Too often my desk looks more like a recycling bin than an organized work place.

When a friend started sending me information about today’s subjects, three or four years ago, I would acknowledge the material and add it to one of the piles of reading for the proverbial rainy day which, of course, never came. But my friend was gentle and politely persistent, even when the acknowledgement, perhaps, sometimes was never more than a few lines, just a polite, “Thank you”. On one occasion he sent something that caught my eye visually. It was Colonel Philip Corso’s book. I remember thinking that it might be an interesting read. So I put it on the shelf along with dozens of others that kept showing up seemingly out of nowhere. Once or twice I looked for it and couldn’t find it.

Paul Hellyer and Philip Corso Jnr., seated at conference.
Philip [Corso, Jr., seated in the audience], I have the same problem with your dad’s book that you have with that document that you’re concerned about. A year ago this August, I was looking for another book to read on my week off. It too had disappeared. But there, staring me in the face, was the elusive, “The Day After Roswell”, so I grabbed it and got on my hurried way. Little did I dream what kind of genie reading it would let out of the bottle. I read it with total fascination, and found it compelling. Once or twice I asked myself, “Is there any possibility that this could be fiction  –  a beautifully contrived fiction, like ‘The Life of Pi’, for example, where readers are sorely tempted to accept fiction as fact?” But I ruled out that possibility. There were far too many real people and real events included for the story to be fiction.

While I was sitting at the lake  –  and this is the same lake where Arundel Lodge is situated and where the incident occurred that I mentioned to you a minute ago --  my nephew Philip came along and asked me what it was I found so fascinating. I gave him a brief summary. He was a skeptic, he informed me. A couple of days later he phoned to say that he had phoned a retired United States Air Force general of his acquaintance, mentioned the name of the book, and had been told, quote, “Every word of it is true, and more”. End quote. Philip could hardly wait to tell me, and to get his hands on a copy of the book.

By strange coincidence  --  and, I think many of you agree that these things are not always coincidences  --  but by strange coincidence I had just received an invitation to speak to an Exopilitics Toronto Symposium on UFO Disclosure And Planetary Direction, being held at the University of Toronto in September [2005]. One of the organizers had been a guest on one of those late night shows  --  you know those very late night shows where only the brave-at-heart and the insomniacs are listening?

[audience laughter]

And somehow my name came up, and the consensus was that I was dead.

[audience laughter]

Oh, anybody can be wrong sometimes. Well anyway, a friend was listening and he was a member of a Bible class that I had taught many years ago. He decided to inform the station, to let them know that I was very much alive and well, and to give them my coordinates.

[audience laughter]

Well I had just finished reading Corso’s book before I had the opportunity to decline the invitation, which had been my intention. But when I thought about the policy implications, including the possibility of replacing fossil fuels, and the danger of designating the visitors as “enemy aliens”, as General Nathan Twining had done within days of the Roswell crash, I decided that I had a responsibility to express my hopes and fear in public. My decision was complicated by the fact that I was getting married the following week. I promised my bride-to-be  --  who is sitting down here tonight  --  that the speech would be a singular event, after which I would bow-out and retire into the shadows.

[audience laughter]

Well unfortunately, as they say, “The road to hell is paved with good intentions”.  In addition to requests for press interviews, I have been inundated with new material of all kinds  --  books, thesis, articles, leaked documents, formerly classified information, classified information obtained under the Freedom Of Information Act, etc.. I probably have enough reading material to last me for the rest of my natural days. So, I hope I stick around for a while and get through as much of it as possible.

Consequently, I am fast becoming an expert at sifting the wheat from the chaff. Some of the material is just pure junk. Some of it is quite intriguing fiction  --  plausible to an extent but ultimately failing the litmus test of credibility. Some of the prophecy and dire predictions of malicious ET interference in the lives of humans is fear-mongering of the worst possible kind, the sort of falsity that creates fear in the minds of the populace. This is exactly what the Military Industrial Complex hopes for in order to rally public support for their plans.

On the other hand, much of the material is pure gold, including a number of very excellent books. One I recommend is “Alien Agenda”, by Jim Marrs. It covers a lot of territory  --  the titillating thesis that the moon may have been placed in orbit by intelligent Beings; UFO crashes; abductions; eye-to-eye encounters; cattle mutilations; crop circles; remote viewing, and much more. And it presents a very balanced view in each case. Marrs gives the proponents and the debunkers almost equal time. It doesn’t require too much discernment, however, to decide who is telling the truth and who isn’t.

A very recent book, “Majic Eyes Only”, by Ryan S. Wood, is equally compelling. Wood documents 74 UFO crashes from 1897  --  would you believe, from 1897  --  to the present. While the evidence is much stronger in some of the cases than in others, there is more than enough to convince an unbiased reader that, as the dust jacket states, first, UFOs have crashed on Earth; second, governments have recovered and exploited these alien technology gifts; and third, most disturbing to a democratic free society, the alien secret is more important than Constitutional or individual rights. And this is something that interests me and disturbs me greatly. To understand this damning indictment, it is important to know the framework of our so-called “democratic systems”. So I would like to talk about the permanent and the provisional governments.


Lewis Lapham [left], editor of Harper’s magazine, and one of America’s great liberal thinkers, contends that the United States has two governments  --  the “permanent” and the “provisional”. He summed up his definition of the former in one sentence  --  it’s a long sentence, mind you, but in one sentence, as part of his, “On Politics, Culture And The Media”, keynote address  to the Canadian Institute of International Affairs National Foreign Policy conference, in October 1996  --  and I quote Lewis Lapham, “The ‘permanent government’ is the secular oligarchy that comprises the Fortune 500, the big media and entertainment syndicates, the civil and military services, the large research universities and law firms.”

Then he puts his thesis in historical context. “Just as the Catholic Church was the predominant institution in medieval Europe, and the Roman Legion the most efficient manifestation of organized force in the first and second centuries BC, so also the Transnational Corporation arranges the affairs of the late twentieth and, I might add, early twenty-first century. The American congress and the American president serve at the pleasure of their commercial overlords, all of whom hold firmly to the belief that all government regulation is wicked  --  that is, the work of the devil; and that any impulse that runs counter to this manly interest of business is, by definition, soft, effeminate, and liberal.” In other words, the interests of ordinary citizens takes second place to those of the industrial and military elite.

Often, when I’m speaking on other subjects and I use Lapham’s thesis, I paraphrase it a little bit. You see, Lapham says there are two governments  --  the permanent and provisional  --  the first consists of the Fortune 500; the big law firms in Washington that do their legal work; the big public relations firms that do their public relations or, in some cases, propaganda, if you prefer; and the top civil servants, both civil and military.  Then I paraphrase, “Every few years we have a charade called an ‘election’”. The permanent government picks the actors to go on stage and read their scripts. They try to pick actors that won’t improvise too much  --  I don’t want to mention any names in particular.

[audience laughter]

Then, through the Trilateral Commission, of which many of them are represented, they raise the money to get their candidates elected, and no one else need apply. That’s the way the system works. As I’m sure you know, I think the Trilateral Commission has picked every president but one in the last 30 or 40 years, something like that. It is a very small but extremely powerful slice of that permanent oligarchy which has become the custodian of the alien secret. It is a policy that began immediately following the 1947 crash at Roswell  --  or the two crashes, which appears to have been the case as reported by Ryan Wood.

It is my belief that it was the danger implicit in having the secret in the wrong hands that prompted General Eisenhower to warn us over half a century ago to beware of the Military Industrial Complex. Not only has the alien secret been closely guarded, it has been ruthlessly enforced. In “Majic Eyes Only”, Ryan Wood describes a document, apparently authentic, labeled, “SOM1-01”, an “Extraterrestrial Entities And Technology Recovery And Disposal” manual, dated April 1954. As Wood points out, the manual provides strict instructions concerning the quote, “need for absolute secrecy in all phases of operation”, end of quote, and then adds, “including a press blackout”.


I quote, “Great care must be taken to preserve the security of any location where extraterrestrial technology might be retrievable for scientific study. Extreme measures must be taken to protect and preserve any material or craft from discovery, examination, or removal by civilian agencies or individuals of the general public. It should be remembered when selecting a cover story that official policy regarding UFOBs [Ed. early official term for UFOs] is that ‘they do not exist’. The most desirable response would be that nothing unusual has occurred. Witnesses will be discouraged from talking about what they have seen, and intimidation may be necessary to insure their cooperation. If witnesses have already contacted the press, it will be necessary to discredit their stories. This can best be done by the assertion that they have misinterpreted natural events, or are the victims of hysteria or hallucinations, or are the perpetrators of hoaxes.” End of quote.

Well, doesn’t that sound all too familiar? It is the story of the last half century  --  official duplicity aided and abetted by a tame and compliant press. It is a policy that has made liars of some of America’s most respected citizens, and kept the majority in near total ignorance of the facts. It is doubtful that a single member of congress is in-the-loop concerning the alien secret, and if that is not correct then let him or her stand up and state the truth. Meanwhile, the congress is voting funds for projects it is unaware of. This has to be an abdication of its role as protector of the public purse.

Those of us who believe in the concept of a government ‘of, by, and for the people’, may be forgiven for suggesting that before the US assumes the mantle of democratic initiator for the world, it would be expedient to enforce its own Constitution and the rights of guarantees for its own citizens.

[audience applauding and cheering]

Having said that, I must admit that I know from experience just how difficult it is for elected politicians to take the bureaucrats on for size. Canada, too, has its own version of the ‘permanent government’.  When I was Canadian Minister Of National Defense in the 1960s, I was privy to US satellite reconnaissance photographs. Unfortunately, however, my Associate Minister, who in law at least, also held cabinet rank, did not have clearance. So we could not review the pictures in the Defense Council in his presence  --  the Defense Council was sort of a cabinet of the defense department that I had established for policy and all major decisions, as a matter of fact. Well, it was awkward not to be able to have him there when we were talking. So I asked that he be cleared. Canada was allowed 40 names on the list, but only three of them were politicians  --  the Prime Minister, the Minister of External Affairs, and myself. Well, it took an unholy row to pry one of those spots loose for my associate. It finally happened so we could sit together at the table with our military staff.

Another case was perhaps more relevant to our subject today. After the Pearson government was formed in 1963, and Canada finally decided to obtain the nuclear warheads for the weapons systems purchased by the previous Diefenbaker government, I was curious about the yield of the weapons. But no one would tell me what it was  --  I was just the Minister.

[audience laughter]

Finally, after a man-to-man showdown with my Chief of the Defense Staff, which is comparable to the Chairman of the Chiefs of Staff Committee, previously, he told me. Then I understood at once why he had been reluctant to tell me. If I had blabbed the information to the press there would have been a public outcry due to the history of the debate. Now, however, 40 years later, the information would be of so little public interest that it wouldn’t cause a ripple. I think this is the significance of the subject we’ve been discussing  --  time has changed the public interest.

In reflecting on the situation that existed in the early post-WWII years, I can understand why it would have been considered wise to observe secrecy. People were weary of war and might have been unduly upset by news that Beings with more advanced intelligence and technology than our own were visiting the planet. Orson Wells’ radio drama, based on H. G. Wells’ “War Of The Worlds”, depicting New Jersey being invaded by men from Mars, had caused a near panic. So it was cited as an example of the kind of paranoia that can be created.

I can also understand why the military, at the outset of the cold war, would be deeply concerned that the Soviets might win the battle of reverse engineering, and use the alien technology to obtain military superiority. That was a legitimate concern at the time. With the disintegration of the Soviet Union, however, that rationale has disappeared. Today the US has no military enemies capable of challenging its overwhelming firepower. Not one.

So, perhaps there is a more sinister reason for the priority given to military expenditures in the face of other urgent priorities. The reason, in a nutshell, is to satisfy the short-term self-serving interests of a military industrial system which depends, to a significant degree, on bigger and bigger defense budgets. To get away with this in a democracy demands an ever-present enemy of major proportions.

This necessity was forecast many years by Dr. Werner Von Braun, the famed German rocket scientist brought to the United States after WWII to prevent his expertise from falling into Soviet hands. He said, in the presence of a friend of mine, I quote:  “First it will be the communists, then it will be the terrorists, and then it will be extraterrestrials.” How’s that for a prescience, or inside information, or both?

In a sane world, the end of the Soviet empire would have led to a peace dividend of major significance. Defense expenditures would have been slashed by a third or more, and the money redirected to health care, education, quality of life in the cities, feeding the hungry, and the protection of the environment and world ecosystem. Why didn’t this happen? Well, September 11, 2001, created a climate of fear which allowed a small group to decide to declare war on terrorism, and to use military might instead of relying on beefed-up police and intelligence activity, which was the obvious strategy. The war on Iraq involved incredibly bad judgment. Instead of reducing the ranks of the terrorists, it has increased their ranks by 10- to 100-fold.  Who are the winners, and who are the losers? The winners are a few large corporations, and those in the military striving for increased budgets. The losers are the people of the world, and especially the people of the United States who are footing most of the bill, both economically and in the realm of world approval. Hope lingers that there may be an end in sight, though certainly it is not for a while, at least. It seems, however, that one blunder leads to another. The US military and their arms suppliers are scrambling to get into a position to take the alien visitors

on for size with the technology they have given us. I’ve received private assurance that the US military wouldn’t be stupid enough to do that.

[audience laughter]

But how can we have faith when all the plans are secret, and we haven’t been told the truth for decades. And due to the extreme secrecy, there is neither realistic civilian oversight nor extensive public debate on which it could be based. Colonel Corso’s book makes it very clear that the original ‘Star Wars’, as it was known, was directly related to the alien threat. Can anyone here remember public mention of that fact by either the government or the military?

Now the follow-on program of ‘anti-missile-missile defense’, as it is being called, is being integrated with the installation of weapons of mass destruction in space. Can anyone imagine why this might really be essential to US security? Once a great power gets on this kind of treadmill, it is extremely difficult to get off.

The next step is to establish a military base on the moon. Anyone familiar with Colonel Corso’s book will recall that this was a pet-project with his boss, Lieutenant  General Arthur Trudeau, who conceived the idea, and had the initial plans for a period in the 1960s, under the title “Project Moonbase”.  After decades of being turned-on by the White House, President Bush has confirmed that the military mind has finally prevailed. One wonders if the aliens are still using the moon as a forward base, as is widely reported, and if so, what kind of welcome the earthlings might expect to receive when they arrive.
Putting weapons of mass destruction in space, and building a permanent military base on the moon, are profoundly questionable uses of scarce resources at a time when large current account and international deficits threaten the stability of the United States dollar. Full disclosure would be a precursor to a better way. There is a better way, which would have to begin with the reestablishment of genuine democracy in the United States and those other western countries complicit in the cover-up  --  an absolutely full disclosure of what is known about extraterrestrial civilizations and their technologies. Then we would be in a position to gauge how soon it might be possible to save our planet, literally, from climate change that could prove to be disastrous to multitudes of earthlings.

The US government has been slow to recognize the danger concerning climate change  --  and I may say that I regret to report that the new Canadian government now is being as equally slow or slower. Just the other day, in the paper, I noticed an article on the subject where a draft report, authorized by the Intergovernmental Panel On Climate Change, has predicted that the climate of the Earth could increase by up to 3 degrees by 2100. They say anything more than 2 degrees could result in disastrous climate changes, including an unacceptable increase in the levels of the oceans.

Some of the brain-children are out there trying to figure out what to do if that happens. I don’t know if you’ve seen some of the suggestions or not, but one is putting in the atmosphere hundreds of square kilometers of aluminum foil particles to deflect the sun’s rays. And others are to create artificial volcanic eruptions to filter out some of the heat. Some of these proposals cost hundreds of billions of dollars.

Yet, we don’t seem to be talking about the logical thing to do and that is to get out of the business of reducing our total dependence on fossil fuels. And what is needed, of course, is an inexpensive replacement for fossil fuels. And you can bet your bottom dollar that someone in the United States, and maybe several projects independently, have been working on the challenge for 50 years or more since the crash. The race has been on for almost 50 years.  But how far has the research advanced? Is a solution imminent? And who would not want the public to not know the answers to those questions?

The oil lobby, of course. There are trillions of dollars of investment involved. The financial stakes couldn’t be higher, but they still pale in comparison to saving the planet for the benefit of future generations. There is no doubt that the adjustment in moving away from oil dependency would be unprecedented. But it doesn’t have to be accomplished overnight, which has been the big problem of globalization and the move toward a single world economy.

By international agreement it could be done over 10, 20, or even 30 years, and that would be fast enough to save the planet from disaster. What will not save it is the status quo. Curbing the appetite of the Military Industrial Complex should proceed in parallel, though at a much faster pace. Those arms makers capable of adjusting would lead the parade in the new technologies.  When one door closes, another window of opportunity opens.

The money saved from lower military expenditures could be used to eliminate the deficit, and then to help the poorer countries of the world develop their own resources and industries for their own benefit, and reverse the trend toward an even greater disparity of income, both between individuals within countries and between rich countries and poor countries.

So, to return to the point where I began. Who is actually running the United States of America and other major western countries? What are the consequences of long-term cover-up of extraterrestrial intelligence and advanced technology? Isn’t it long-since time that truth trumped official secrecy? And, what are we going to do about it?

Speaker Biographical Information:

The Honorable Paul Hellyer was the Canadian Minister of National Defence (1963-1967) in the Cabinet of Lester Pearson; and Transport Minister and Senior Minister in the Cabinet of Pierre Trudeau (1968-1969). As Minister of Defence he oversaw the integration and unification of the Royal Canadian Navy, Canadian Army and the Royal Canadian Air Force into a single organization, the Canadian Forces. While Minister for Defense, he was guest of honor at the opening of the world's first UFO landing pad at Alberta, Canada in 1967. While the occasional UFO sighting report crossed his desk, he claims to never have had time for what he considered to be a "flight of fancy." His position dramatically changed after reading Lt Col. Philip Corso's The Day After Roswell. He contacted a retired United States Air Force General to confirm Corso's claims. Finally convinced that the UFO phenomenon was real he decided to come forward and speak at the September 2005 Exopolitics Toronto about some of the "most profoundly important policy questions that must be addressed." Among these he includes the possible targeting of extraterrestrial visitors with space weapons, and greater transparency in the policy making process concerning UFOs.

300 - 279 Laurier West
Ottawa, Ontario K1P 5J9

6 January 2006
Dear Mr. Layton
Canadian Leadership in Space Technologies Initiatives

Canada has assumed an international leadership role in the development of space age and energy technologies. The CF-105 Avro Arrow broke all international standards of aerodynamics with the sophisticated Orenda propulsion system that quite literally brought the Avro Arrow, a conventional aircraft, to the brink of space during test flights. The Avro Arrow was indeed the precursor to current shuttle design and technologies.

Currently the Canada Arm’s proficiency has enabled shuttle missions to perform with incredible efficiency in earth orbit and builds upon a technology that may one day assist in the exploration of space.

The time has again arrived for Canada to step forward to carry on its space and energy legacy. How will this be achieved?

Solution: The Canadian Exopolitics Initiative

As you know, the former Minister of Defense of Canada under Nobel Laureate Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson, the Hon. Paul Hellyer, has recently made a public statement regarding Canadian National Security and Defense.

This public policy statement has attracted documented, international unprecedented media attention. By last count, that statement has been covered in mainstream media in Canada (The Globe & Mail, The National Post, The Edmonton Sun), USA (MSNBC, FOX TV NEWS), Italy (LA STAMPA), and has been accessed by more than 577,000 registered journalists world-wide and 250,000 registered media outlets world-wide.

On September 25, 2005, at Convocation Hall, University of Toronto (Toronto Exopolitics Symposium) Mr. Hellyer stated:

"UFOs, are as real as the airplanes that fly over your head,"

Former Minister of Defense Hellyer went on to state: "The time has come to lift the veil of secrecy, and let the truth emerge, so there can be a real and informed debate, about one of the most important problems facing our planet today." 

Mr. Hellyer stated the Canadian people may be threatened with the consequences of war in outer space over our sovereign territory: "The United States military are preparing weapons which could be used against the aliens, and they could get us into an intergalactic war without us ever having any warning."
He also expressed apprehension, saying: "I'm so concerned about what the consequences might be of starting an intergalactic war, that I just think I had to say something."

Canada: A Decade of Contact

Our 3 Non-Governmental Organizations have joined with former Minister of Defense Paul Hellyer in calling for public hearings in the Canadian Parliament on this issue, and Canadian public funding of a Decade of Contact: basic research and public education as well.
We therefore propose:

A Decade of Contact - The Government of Canada will undertake a 10 year development of formal, funded process of public education, scientific research, educational curricula development and implementation, strategic planning, community activity, and public outreach concerning our terrestrial society’s full cultural, political, social, legal, and governmental communication and public interest diplomacy with advanced, ethical Off-Planet cultures now visiting Earth.

The Canadian Exopolitical Initiative is able to provide Canadian government officials with scientific, military and space age experts who will provide data on entirely renewable, sustainable and environmentally friendly energy, technology and propulsion systems that will render current global reliance on fossil fuels and nuclear energy redundant.

Expert witnesses will outline these matters in a clear and unequivocal manner.

Thus, it is essential that the enclosed DVD be reviewed thoroughly and with circumspect acuity. It contains highly evidential material; government, scientific and military witness testimony that describes information about:

a)    The existence of an extraterrestrial presence on Earth,
b)    Military, Air Traffic Control and other government files and memoranda on first hand craft  sightings, radar tracking and retrievals,
c)    Exotic energy resources that will displace fossil fuels,
d)    The geo-political implications of this extraterrestrial presence and the associated forms of renewable energy that will revolutionize the future environmental sustainability of the planet, and
e)    Early accounts of preparations for the weaponization of space.

After viewing and considering the evidential material contained in the DVD package, it will become apparent that significant governmental measures will have to be taken to initiate investigation of this issue.

It is therefore incumbent on the Parliament and Government of Canada to address these space age issues by holding Parliamentary hearings to review the incontrovertible and evidential nature of this material and enlist the capacity of the Canadian Exopolitical Initiative to provide the expert witness testimony indicated on the enclosed DVD resource material.

We enclose for your review a DVD of the Briefing Document and Executive Summary with best cases, U.S. Government documents and direct U.S. government and military-intelligence witness testimony of representatives of intelligent, advanced Extraterrestrial civilizations interacting with humanity at this time.

DISCLOSURE PROJECT DVD CONTENTS
♣    Two hour Disclosure Witness testimony segments
♣    Witness Biographical Summaries
♣    Briefing Documents (500 pages)
♣    Executive Summary (102 pages)
♣    Additional supplemental material.

OUR REQUESTS

Furthermore we are writing to request the following:

Party Policy - We request that the New Democratic Party adopt the Decade of Contact proposal as official policy for the Government of Canada.

Election Briefing - If feasible, we are available to deliver a briefing on this issue for you and your staff during the current Federal Campaign.

Post January 23, 2006 Federal Election - We request the opportunity for the Hon. Paul Hellyer, former Minister of Defense, together with the high-ranking U.S. and Canadian military-intelligence witnesses, experts in space age renewable and environmentally friendly energy systems to brief you and your officials on this issue so that the Government of Canada can begin to develop its public policy on this File in an orderly way.

Summary

Canada has always taken a leadership role and is respected for its proactive position on matters of peace and international co-operation. Canada’s position on the issues outlined above will set an international standard and the development of a worldwide dialogue on the compelling policy implications that, before long will challenge all nations.

Canada should initiate a Decade of Contact, of public education and research on the advanced, ethical Extraterrestrial Presence, and on new breakthroughs in energy and vital science and technology that will transform human civilization, eliminate the need for war and poverty, and usher in an era of unprecedented abundance for humanity.

Analysis of the Briefing Document and Executive Summary will clearly set the stage for your investigation.

We sincerely trust that these requests and support documents will receive careful attention and consideration by you and senior policy advisors.

If there is any need for immediate clarification regarding the requests above or about the Briefing Document and Executive Summary, please do not hesitate to contact me.

I will be contacting your office to follow up on these requests.

Ignatieff against Canadian role in U.S. missile defence plan

Juliet O'Neill
CanWest News Service; Ottawa Citizen

Tuesday, October 17, 2006

OTTAWA - Liberal leadership front-runner Michael Ignatieff said Monday he is opposed to Canadian participation in the U.S. ballistic missile defence program.
Bob Rae, Ignatieff's closest rival, appeared to endorse the status quo, saying through a spokesman that ''missile defence talks should not be a priority for the government at this time.''
And Montreal MP Stephane Dion, one of two other top contenders, said it would be a ''tragedy'' to spend billions of dollars on an anti-missile program that may not work and ''and I don't want to be associated with it.''
The leadership candidates were reacting to a call by Frank McKenna, former ambassador to the U.S. and one-time New Brunswick premier, for the Liberal party to reconsider its opposition to ballistic missile defence in the wake of North Korea's nuclear test. McKenna's recommendation was welcomed by Colin Kenny, Liberal chair of the Senate defence committee, which recently released a report urging the government to sign on to the missile defence program.
McKenna said in a discussion paper Canada should not be a ''free rider'' on the United States. He recommended Liberals revisit the decision by former prime minister Paul Martin to renege on Canada's expected participation in the program in 2005.
''I do not support ballistic missile defence or the weaponization of space,'' Ignatieff, a freshman Toronto MP, said Monday in a statement to CanWest News Service.
''We should not participate in these measures. Canada must continue to work with our international partners and allies to ensure that our sovereignty is respected and that our national interests are represented in any multilateral discussions regarding continental security.''
Dion welcomed Ignatieff's statement, saying he had understood since Ignatieff's speech to the 2005 Liberal biennial convention that he favoured Canadian participation.
In that speech, Ignatieff noted that the Martin government's recently announced decision not to join the U.S. in developing the missile shield had proved popular within the party, but warned that ''We need to balance a principled opposition to the weaponization of space with an equally principled commitment to participate in North American defense now.
''We do not want our decisions to fracture the command system of North American defense. And we do not want a principled decision, that is, the decision to resist the militarization of space, to result, without our intending it, in having less control over our national sovereignty. We can't afford ... we can't walk away from the table. We must be there at the table, defending what only we can defend.''
On Monday, Alicia Johnston, a spokesperson for Ignatieff, said that his call for a commitment to North American defence in the 2005 speech was a reference, not to ballistic missile defence, but to ''support for the continuation of Canada's current role in NORAD and alongside our international partners and allies.''
Rae's comment that talks on the matter should not be a current government priority appeared to endorse the status quo. Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who has promised a free vote in the Commons should negotiations take place, said in the summer that he was not reopening the issue.
''The Americans are not going to make the offer (for Canada to participate) again until they are sure the answer is going to be yes,'' Kenny said in an interview. ''Either you have to have a majority government, be it Liberal or Conservative, or you have to have a public agreement by both of the major parties that they have sufficient votes between them to carry the day, or the Americans simply won't go there.''
Gerard Kennedy, fourth-ranking candidate in the leadership race, declined comment until he has had time to study McKenna's submission.

CANADIAN EXOPOLITICS INITIATIVE: Open Letter to Senator Colin Kenny, Chair of the Canadian Senate Committee on National Security & Defence

OPEN LETTER TO SEN. COLIN KENNY

RE: U.S. MISSILE DEFENSE 

Please archive, print and forward to Senator Colin Kenny, Chair of The Standing Senate Committee on National Security and Defence

Dear Senator Kenny,

I was surprised and disappointed to learn about your recommendations for Canada to join missile defense.  Indeed, the cost of getting involved, which is not financial, would be a great cost to hope for future generations, as you will see in this paradigm shifting letter.

First, it's important to note that Canada has long been opposed to space weapons and space wars, and you may be interested in further investigating the links between missile defense and space weapons. Perhaps someone such as Steven Staples from the Polaris Institute would be more than happy to provide further information, including sharing the evidence of how missile defense is fueling an arms race.  See: http://www.ceasefire.ca/

But the main purpose for this letter is to bring to your attention a related very important and SERIOUS WARNING by Dr. Steven Greer, the founder of the Disclosure Project (http://www.disclosureproject.org/). 

Dr. Greer discloses the reality of UFOs and brings to our attention evidence proving that the reality of UFOs has been covered up.  He has met with and discussed this serious issue with many high level military, intelligence and government officials, senior members of Congress, chairmen of committees, members of the Senate, members of royal families, including the wife of Boutrous Ghali, the former Secretary General of the United Nations, as well as President Clinton's former CIA Director (Dec. 13, 1993) James Woolsey.

Dr. Greer is not the only one with information pointing to the fact that there is a UFO cover-up. As you may be aware, a few years ago, in October 2002, CNN reported on President Clinton's former White House Chief of Staff, John Podesta, where he asked the Pentagon leadership to come clean about their UFO cover-up during a press conference.  See: http://archives.cnn.com/2002/TECH/space/10/22/ufo.records/index.html

An investigation will discover that there are many reasons for this cover-up, including the desire by some for a gradual acclimatization to the idea of intelligent life in the Universe.  The challenge is that there are reports of rogue elements within the political, corporate, military and intelligence agencies that a cover-up has been sustained for decades for more sinister reasons, such as reasons of control over oil and increased spending on weapons.  Peace would be a very bad deal with many military industries, unless leaders of these industries find ways get non-military contracts.  The cost of weapons is often looked at only from a tax-payer's perspective, but those on the receiving end are profiting enormously thanks to human conflicts and wars, such as the war in Iraq.

As paradigm shifting as it is, Dr. Greer warns of a false flag operation (ABC News reports on false flags: http://www.prweb.com/releases/2006/09/prweb434292.htm) which would be related to a GLOBAL false UFO & alien threat to justify lucrative contracts for space weapons (billions and trillions of dollars by manipulating public trust).

It would be an extremely serious mistake for your committee to ignore Dr. Greer's warning because false flag operations affect Canada's National Security.  His warning can be found on this website: http://www.disclosureproject.org/cosmicdeception.htm

Once your committee investigates, you'll discover that false flag operations are designed to appear as if they are being carried out by other entities, such as other countries or terrorist groups, to help first demonize them and gain public support for wars in order to benefit with geopolitical control and financial gains.

Because we will be faced with coming major global environmental problems, Mr. Alfred Webre's suggested exopolitical solutions below, endorsed by former Minister of National Defence Hon. Paul Hellyer, should not be ignored, but archived, researched and reflected upon by the Senate of Canada and our country's most brilliant scientists, for the sake of our children and grandchildren.

We must seriously consider what it means if indeed we are not alone in the Universe, as the late Canadian-born Peter Jennings began to seriously explore in his 2hr Primetime ABC News special on UFOs in February 2005: http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/Primetime/

We should also not ignore that Hon. Paul Hellyer publicly revealed in September 2005 that a retired Air Force General confirmed that UFOs were real and not from human sources.  For further research, a video of Mr. Hellyer's presentation is available online: http://www.jerrypippin.com/video/PaulHellyerAtTorontoConference-25-09-05.wmv  and you can get full coverage on this website: http://www.jerrypippin.com/UFO_Files_toronto_exopolitics.htm

This is a very global issue and we should ask ourselves what kind of a world do we want to leave behind for the children?  A venomous one where abuse of power and abuse of others, torture, deception, false threats, and wars rule us, or one of freedom (of information), truth, honesty, compassion in action, and hope guide us?  God / Source / Creator (or whatever word one uses based on one's cultural background) gave us free will, and we can choose to not misuse our free will.

Through your publicly accountable role, I hope you remember that your influence can help create a brighter tomorrow for future generations of Canadians and citizens from around the world.  It is no longer acceptable to claim ignorance when so much key information is available today from many good sources.  This information can help create hindsight, and help us make better decisions today as our leaders gradually prepare Canadians for the good news about the most important revelation in the history of the world, a revelation that can be leveraged to help shift paradigms towards gradually discovering our Universal and Spiritual roots. 

Thank you for caring about the future, and for serving the public, the greater good.

God Bless,
[Name Witheld]

ABOUT THE BOOK "EXOPOLITICS: POLITICS, GOVERNMENT AND LAW IN THE UNIVERSE" BY ALFRED LAMBREMONT WEBRE

Exopolitics is the evolution of Alfred Lambremont Webre’s groundbreaking work as a futurist at the Stanford Research Institute, where in 1977 he directed a proposed extraterrestrial communication study project for the Carter White House. This project was initiated because Carter had seen a UFO in 1969 and was interested in the subject, as are millions of others today.

It may turn the dominant view of our Universe upside down. It reveals that we live on an isolated planet in the midst of a populated, evolving, and highly organized inter-planetary, inter-galactic, and multi-dimensional Universe society. It explores why Earth seems to have been quarantined for eons from a more evolved Universe society. It suggests specific steps to end our isolation, by reaching out to the technologically and spiritually advanced civilizations that are engaging our world at this unique time in human history.

A growing number of mainstream scientists are concluding that civilization – as we know it – may be extinct by the end of this century because of probable ecological catastrophes caused by climate change. To survive, we must transform the permanent warfare economy into a sustainable, cooperative Space Age society, release our addiction to fossil fuels, and move toward new, clean, renewable energy sources. An exopolitical approach to these challenges may well provide us with ecologically sound, life-saving solutions – a legacy of hope for our children and all future human generations.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT EXOPOLITICS:

"Alfred Lambremont Webre's odyssey into the realm of life in the vast Universe surrounding planet Earth is indeed a fascinating journey if you read it with an open mind...  To turn us in the direction of re-unification with the rest of creation the author is proposing a 'Decade of Contact' -  an era of openness, public hearings, publicly funded research, and education about extraterrestrial reality. That could be just the antidote the world needs to end its greed driven, power-centered madness."
- Honorable Paul T. Hellyer, Minister of National Defense under Canadian Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson

"Much of this book rings true. Certainly, our civilization cannot go on as we have.  We will need all the help we can get to lift ourselves out of tyranny, genocide, and ecocide.  So why not reach out toward those who are clearly more wise?"
- Dr. Brian O'Leary, Former NASA Astronaut

October 6, 2006
TORIES SHOOT DOWN U.S. MISSILE DEFENCE
http://ottsun.canoe.ca/News/National/2006/10/06/1963662-sun.html

The Conservative government has no plans to join the U.S. ballistic missile defence system, despite a Senate defence committee recommendation to sign on.

"We will not initiate discussions with the U.S. on this issue. The issue is closed," Etienne Allard, a spokesman for Defence Minister Gordon O'Connor, told Sun Media.

"The U.S. ambassador has indicated that his government has no plans to ask Canada to join the program."

Critics fear the defence program will escalate the international arms race, but the Senate committee believes advanced technology has the potential "to offer useful, non-nuclear defence to all of North America."

Liberal Sen. Colin Kenny, chairman of the committee, said Canada is missing out on a "no-cost event."
"We believe that Canada will have better-protected sovereignty by having a seat at the table," he said.
"It's almost impolite to turn down an offer coming to us that really was a courtesy extended by the U.S., because there were no costs associated with it."

NDP defence critic Dawn Black was shocked by the Senate suggestion to reopen the thorny debate.
"We knew (the missile program) would escalate the arms race; it has escalated the arms race," she said.
"It seems ridiculous to be suggesting that we revisit this again."

“OUR FUTURE SELF IN OUR FUTURE WORLD”

There are three main questions that humans ask:
     •    Who am I?
     •     What am I up to?
     •     Where am I going?

In "Future Self/Future World", we explore the notion that the possible answers to these questions have taken a quantum leap in the last decade. Are who we are a simple fact of biological determinism? Or do our ancestors come from distant worlds or other dimensions?   
     •     What are we REALLY up to in 2006 and 2007? In the year 2012 and beyond?

Who are these “new humans”, Indigos? Starchildren? Are they really hardwired differently or do we just hope they are with the expectation that they will “save the planet”.  What does the future hold for humanity? Will it be Armageddon, Global Warming & Earth Changes or a Transcendent Future?

Pathways to a positive future can include the 4-“D”s:
     •     Disclosure of an Extraterrestrial Presence;
     •     A Decade of Contact;
     •     Disarmament and Transformation of the Permanent War Economy into a
           New Energy-based, Sustainable, Peaceful Space Age Society; and
     •     Diplomacy with ethical advanced Off-planet Cultures now visiting Earth.

The overall CONTEXT of a positive Future is:

     •    A HIGHER PLAN - Based upon “close encounter” experiences and scientific data, we conclude that — We are not alone in this task.  A massive operation is underway involving integrated resources of diverse, advanced upper-dimensional Extraterrestrial civilizations, coordinated around an Integrated Plan to facilitate our living planet Earth's shift into a higher dimensional home within Extraterrestrial Civilization.

"OUR FUTURE SELF IN OUR FUTURE WORLD" is designed to empower participants to harmonize with and thrive in the profound multi-dimensional shift toward a positive Exopolitical future occurring now in our personal and planetary reality.

We will collectively and interactively explore questions and consider new strategies for us to take the quantum leap in a fuller consciousness. We have the capacity to create our future selves and world and it is time to examine the beliefs we hold that will shape that future. 

Alwmask Alfred Lambremont Webre, JD, MEd is the author of Exopolitics: Politics, Government And Law in the Universe, and International Director of the Institute for Cooperation in Space (ICIS), dedicated to preventing the weaponization of space, transforming the permanent war economy into a peaceful, sustainable Space Age society, and supporting cooperation amongst Life in the Universe.

EXOPOLITICS: http://www.exopolitics.com/

Alfred's book EXOPOLITICS  is the evolution of the groundbreaking work he did as a futurist at the Stanford Research Institute (SRI), where in 1977 he directed a proposed extraterrestrial communication study project for the Carter White House.  Exopolitics reveals that we live on an isolated planet in the midst of a populated, evolving, and highly organized inter-planetary, inter-galactic, and multi-dimensional Universe society. It explores why Earth seems to have been quarantined for eons from a more evolved Exopolitics_broch1 Universe society. Exopolitics suggests specific steps to end our isolation, by reaching out to the technologically and spiritually advanced civilizations that are engaging our world at this unique, challenging time in human history. 

Geri De Stefano, PhD has been a practicing psychic, teacher and business consultant for 30 years in the United States and Canada, working with businesses, professionals, authors, artists, actors and musicians. "Learning to use your psychic abilities can potentially give you an "edge", but you must be open and willing to use your ability Geribroch1 in practical ways, as in business, in order for it to have any real value in your life." She has been working with and tracking Starchildren for the past 25 years.

Janet Elizabeth Colli is a consciousness researcher who integrates psychology with spiritual emergence and healing.  Dr. Colli holds a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and is among the most skilled clinicians in the Pacific Northwest helping those who are awakening to their relationship with the subtle realm.  She researches the role of trauma in entering transpersonal realms, and utilizes Eye Janet_collibroch1 Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).

Janet Colli's book, “SACRED ENCOUNTERS: Spiritual Awakenings During Close Encounters," is the culmination of 13 years of research bringing together the psychology of close encounters, spiritual experience, and — enlightenment.

SACRED ENCOUNTERS: http://www.sacredencounters.com/

Already the current surge of “subtle realm” encounters has unveiled the hidden dimension that surrounds us — the realm of angels and aliens.  Yet few Westerners realize that the same gurus enshrined in ancient lineages communicate with so-called aliens.  SACRED ENCOUNTERS reveals startling evidence establishing this connection relating to Sufi, Hindu and Tibetan Buddhist traditions.

Sacred_broch1 Dr. Colli believes that those among us who sense the subtle realms herald a critical stage in human evolution.  Subtle realm experiences are ushering in an era when close encounters, non-local communication and travel will be un-exceptional.  Sacred Encounters prepares the modern world for our next evolutionary leap.

SACRED ENCOUNTERS presents psychological research and case studies such as “Hayley,” who demonstrates the transition from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to Interspecies Communicator.  Trace her developmental process as she learns to transform her terror into love.  Discover the pivotal role so-called aliens are playing in the transformation of human consciousness — from those who are living it, firsthand.

Proposed U.N. Decade Of Contact Would Establish Diplomatic Relations With Advanced E.T.s

UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. - For the first time in almost 28 years, the United Nations General Assembly may be debating the issue of establishing diplomatic relations with advanced Extraterrestrial Civilizations that may now be visiting Earth.

On December 16, 2005, a Resolution to establish a United Nations Decade of Contact was formally transmitted to the incoming President of the General Assembly, H.E. Jan Eliasson of Sweden by a group of Non-Governmental Organizations, including the U.S.-based Disclosure Project, the Campaign for Cooperation in Space, and the Toronto Exopolitics Symposium.

U.N. General Assembly President Eliasson was Sweden's Ambassador to the United States from 2000 to 2005.  Dr. Steven Greer, Director of the Disclosure Project, has held informal briefings on the Extraterrestrial presence with high-ranking United Nations officials.

The United Nations has used a 10-year public policy focus period to address other issues of global importance, such as the United Nations Decade of Women and the United Nations Decade for the Eradication of Poverty.

Almost twenty-eight years ago, on December 18, 1978, the United Nations General Assembly voted to approve decision 33/426, inviting U.N. Member States "to take appropriate steps to coordinate on a national level scientific research and investigation into extraterrestrial life, including unidentified flying objects, and to inform the Secretary-General of the observations, research and evaluation of such activities."

United States Was Sole U.N. Member Nation Which Unsuccessfully Attempted to Block 1978 UN E.T. Resolution

One prominent researcher of Extraterrestrial issues has noted that the United States U.N. Delegation attempted to block the 1978 U.N. General Assembly E.T. Resolution.

The researcher notes, "India is specifically mentioned in two U.S. State Department documents referenced in Clifford Stone's book 'UFOs Are Real.'

"The first reference is in Doc. 5-20b State Dept. Teletype, Nov 18, 1978, which states in a teletype marked CONFIDENTIAL in four places:

[Begin excerpt]

"'Last year Grenada requested our support and Misoff [Misoff = Mission officer, likely the then-U.S. U.N. ambassador] had to scramble hard behind the scenes to water down the resolution and, in effect, delay a vote for one year. Another consideration is whether to issue a disclaimer on statements made by U.S. nationals on the Grenadian delegation.  If last year's instructions still obtain, it would appear that the Indian suggestion would be about as far as we would be willing to go on the issue.  Leonard.'

[End excerpt]

"Note the U.S. was the only nation trying to sabotage the resolution by putting pressure on other member states.

"The next reference to India takes place in Doc. 5-22 State Dept. Teletype, Dec. 2, 1978 which states, in part:

'1. Subsequent to the introduction of the Grenadian UFO resolution, Misoff [Misoff = Mission officer, likely the then-U.S. U.N. ambassador] has engaged in two separate informal negotiating sessions, which included representation from Austria, USSR, and Grenada. In an attempt to arrive at a mutually agreeable compromise solution of the problem. India and FRG [Federal Republic of Germany: West Germany] representing EC-P [?] have been apprised of our discussions . . .'

"From my reading of the previous sentence, this might mean West Germany was likely also interested in supporting the resolution."

"Gairy was overthrown on the day he was supposed to be meeting with Kurt Waldheim to discuss UFOs.  He left Grenada on March 12, 1979 for face-to-face meetings with Waldheim and the coup took place the next day according to this historical reference:

"'Thus, in a broadcast on Radio Grenada, Maurice Bishop announced the first coup d'etat in modern times in the English-speaking Caribbean and the advent of the Grenadian revolution on 13 March 1979 . . . Gairy had left the island the previous day for talks at the UN in New York with Kurt Waldheim on Unidentified Flying Objects and cosmic phenomena . . . On Monday 12 March Gairy flew to Barbados on the first leg of his journey to New York.  At Grantley Adams International airport he was met by Frank Ortiz, the US Ambassador, before he boarded his plane for the flight northwards.  As he touched down the final hurried plans were being completed for his overthrow.  As workers in the telephone exchange on the Carenage in St. George made sure the island was cut off from the outside world forty-six men were receiving their last instructions from the leaders of the NJM . . ." [NJM = New Jewel Movement, the Marxist group that overthrew Gairy.]' Source: O'Shaughnessy, Hugh.  Grenada: An Eyewitness Account of the U.S. Invasion and the Caribbean History that Provoked it.  (New York: Dodd, Mead & Co.), 1984, pp. 77-8.

"Stone's book also contains another incriminating document regarding U.S. attempts to sabotage the resolution with a reference that is found within Doc. 5-22 State Dept. Teletype, Dec. 2, 1978:

"'We think referral of the matter to the Outerspace Committee (OSC) without a preordained mandate as to what action is to be taken, provides the flexibility the OSC needs to take whatever action it deems appropriate.  It will also obviate the need to vote on a resolution (and gamble on the results).'

The researcher concludes, "Clearly, the U.S. Government's intent was to ensure the resolution was doomed to fail from the very beginning." 

The documented attempted sabotage of the 1978 UN General Assembly E.T. Resolution by officials of the U.S. Mission to the United Nations run counter to U.S. President Jimmy Carter's public policy positions on UFOs during the 1976 U.S. Presidential campaign.  Jimmy Carter was U.S. President in December 1978 at the time of the adoption of the United Nations General Assembly Resolution.  Carter himself in 1973 publicly reported he had a close Encounter of the First Kind with a UFO (Night Light) in October 1969, in the company of 10 members of the Leary, Georgia Lion's Club while he was running for Governor of Georgia. Four years later, while Governor of Georgia, Carter filed a public UFO sighting report, dated September 18, 1973.  In his 1976 U.S. Presidential campaign against President Gerald R. Ford, Carter stated publicly he would release government files on UFOs. 

Former Canadian Minister of Defence Hon. Paul Hellyer

Former Canadian Minister of Defence, Hon. Paul Hellyer has requested that the Canadian Parliament hold hearings on the issue of relations with Extraterrestrial civilizations.   

On September 25, 2005, at the Toronto Exopolitics Symposium held at Convocation Hall, University of Toronto, former Minister of National Defence Hellyer stated: "UFOs, are as real as the airplanes that fly over your head." He stated, "The United States military are preparing weapons which could be used against the aliens, and they could get us into an intergalactic war without us ever having any warning. The time has come to lift the veil of secrecy, and let the truth emerge, so there can be a real and informed debate, about one of the most important problems facing our planet today."

U.N. Decade of Contact

Mr. Hellyer, Canada's former Minister of Defence, supports a United Nations Decade of Contact.  Mr. Hellyer writes, "To turn us in the direction of re-unification with the rest of creation Alfred Lambremont Webre is proposing a 'Decade of Contact' - an 'era of openness, public hearings, public funded research, and education about extraterrestrial reality.' That could just be the antidote the world needs to end its greed-driven, power-centered madness."

A United Nations Decade of Contact has four Objectives:

DISCLOSURE: Open, transparent, official governmental disclosure and declassification of all past and present programs related to extraterrestrial presence on Earth.

DECADE OF CONTACT:  Public funding by U.N. Member Nations and by the UNITED NATIONS of a 10 year process of formal public education, scientific research, educational curricula development, strategic planning, community activity, and public outreach about the extraterrestrial presence on Earth and the future of Earth in regard to the populated universe.

DISARMAMENT: A permanent ban on all space-based weapons and warfare in space through a Space Preservation Treaty Conference.

DIPLOMACY: UNITED NATIONS Public Interest Diplomacy seeking to make contact with Off-Planet Cultures now visiting Earth.

The Disclosure Project, a U.S.-based non-profit organization, on May 9, 2001, held a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. in which numerous high-level military-intelligence, governmental and private sector witnesses publicly described experiences and evidence establishing that advanced Extraterrestrial civilizations are interacting with our terrestrial civilization at this time.

On May 20, 2005, Brazil, a major U.N. Member Nation took official measures in support of a United Nations Decade of Contact. The Brazilian Air Force (FAB) openly allowed examination of classified UFO documents in several military facilities in Brasilia, the Federal Capital. 

A military-intelligence spying technology known as "remote viewing" originally developed at Stanford Research Institute in the mid-1970s by Dr. Hal Puthoff and Russell Targ has also yielded replicable data regarding the existence of advanced Off-Planet Cultures now visiting Earth.

The United Nations General Assembly has consistently voted in favor of a treaty banning weapons and warfare in space. On December 8, 2003, the U.N. General Assembly voted 174 – 0 in favor of a treaty banning weapons in space, with the United States and Israel abstaining.

One spokesperson for the grass-roots network supporting the United Nations Decade of Contact said, "2006 may prove to be an important anniversary of the 1978 U.N. General Assembly Resolution which formally urged U.N. Member Nations to research the existence of extraterrestrial life including Unidentified Flying Objects." 

The spokesperson continued, "That U.N. Resolution passed, despite a sabotage campaign by the U.S. Mission to the United Nations. The United States Mission to the United Nations cannot thwart humanity's right to explore our relationships with other intelligent civilizations for much longer.  2006 will see breakthroughs for the Decade of Contact and for eventual public interest diplomacy with advanced, ethical Off-Planet Cultures now visiting Earth."

Not War of the Worlds but Peace among Worlds, Futurist Says

Ma_nws_1_2


Tue Jul 26, 8:00 AM ET

Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) July 26, 2005 -- If our current libel laws were to extend beyond Earth"s boundaries, Steven Spielberg"s War of the Worlds might be found to be defamatory towards a race of extraterrestrial beings that may be living below the surface of Mars.

That is the claim of a veteran lawyer and space peace activist who says that by portraying Martians as aggressive attackers, Spielberg"s new film also misrepresents the broader challenge that humanity must confront interacting with other civilizations in space.

A graduate of Yale Law School, Alfred Lambremont Webre is known as the founding father of exopolitics. His work as a futurist at the prestigious Stanford Research Institute (SRI) in 1977 directing a proposed Extraterrestrial Communication Project for the Carter White House led to the emergence of exopolitics as a social science discipline.

Like many other futurists, Webre has concluded that humanity is destined to become a space-faring civilization. But he has been at the forefront of advocating that such a future will require a program of public interest diplomacy with "off-planet cultures."

In his newly released book Exopolitics: Politics, Government, and Law in the Universe (Filament Books; $9.99), Webre presents a practical and philosophical model of how such an outreach program to other planetary civilizations might be shaped.

Webre thinks that intergalactic diplomacy will involve peaceful co-existence and cooperation with other civilizations founded on principles of Universal law.

"Exopolitics is premised on the notion that if humanity is not only to survive but thrive in the Universe, it will have to develop a political science to effectively interact with the beings that it will encounter in space," Webre says.

It might seem like science fiction fantasy to some, but Webre"s book deals with a subject that is taken very seriously by some of the most accomplished members of Earth society. Among many other prominent citizens of this world, a former American astronaut and one of Canada"s former defense ministers have endorsed Exopolitics.

"The scientific paradigm of the 20th Century was that intelligent life ended at Earth"s geo-stationary orbit," Webre explains. "The exopolitics model informs us that, in reality, Earth appears to be an isolated planet in the midst of a populated Universe composed of intelligent civilizations subject to Universal law, operating under Universal forms of governance, and mediated by Universe politics."

Webre delights in the cosmic irony that his e-book publisher, Filament Books, originally decided to publish Exopolitics on its website along with War of the Worlds, H.G. Wells" classic account of an alien invasion from Mars that inspired Spielberg"s new blockbuster.

In his science fiction novel, Wells portrays Mars – and by implication, other planets – as harbingers of alien monsters that wish to attack and destroy our planetary civilization. "[Across the gulf of space … intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic regarded this Earth with envious eyes, and slowly and surely drew their plans against us," Wells wrote.

Webre has a far more optimistic view of Mars and other possibly populated planets. He thinks that human contact with aliens represents not a "final threat" but a "future hope."

His optimism is fueled by recent scientific discoveries made by NASA"s Mars Rover. These findings confirm the high probability that the red planet could host life today.

Webre is also intrigued by data derived from the scientific process of "remote viewing" which suggest that below Mars" surface dwells a peaceful race of intelligent humanoid beings that survived an environmental cataclysm on Mars that occurred eons ago.

"Remote viewing" is the mental process of perceiving and describing places, persons, and events at distant locations. It was sponsored and developed by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) in the early 1970"s with the help of scientists from Stanford Research Institute.

According to Webre, both remote viewers within the American intelligence community and civilian remote viewers trained by the US government have discovered astounding data about life on Mars, including the fact that the surviving Martian culture has technology that appears to be 150 years in advance of our present day civilization.

The remote viewing data indicate that because their physical appearance is so similar to humans on Earth, some Martians have already migrated to villages in South America. "Humans from Mars seem to be genetically related to humans on Earth," Webre says. "This raises many important questions – for science as well as for religion."

If such data prove accurate, Webre thinks that mutually beneficial agreements with our extended "human" family from Mars could help human civilization on Earth cope with the looming environmental challenges that threaten our own planetary survival.

His brilliant treatise Exopolitics describes the steps that must be taken to move in that direction. It sets forth an agenda for a hopeful future in which humanity addresses the challenge of contact with other civilizations in the Universe not in a "war of the worlds" scenario but through a "peace among worlds" initiative. It is "a roadmap to the stars."

"Extraterrestrials Among Us"

Introduction
There is startling evidence from a number of independent sources that ‘human looking’ extraterrestrial visitors have integrated with and lived in major population centers up until recently, and this is known by a select number of government agencies and military departments. A range of highly classified government documents and military programs give credence to this phenomenon, as revealed by a number of whistleblowers. Command Sergeant Major Robert Dean, for example, claims that a top secret NATO document he witnessed in 1964 described how senior political and military leaders had been visited by and interacted with ‘human looking’ extraterrestrials who could easily blend into human society. What really concerned NATO leaders, according to Dean, was that extraterrestrials could be walking in the corridors of key political and military institutions. Aside from whistleblower testimonies, a number of private individuals claim to have encountered extraterrestrials posing as ordinary citizens in major cities around the planet.

George Adamski was the first to write about extraterrestrials secretly living among the human population. In his second non-fiction book describing his extraterrestrial contact experiences, Inside the Flying Saucers, Adamski discussed how human looking extraterrestrials had established a presence among the human population. They apparently looked so much like us that they could get jobs, lived in neighborhoods, drove cars, and could blend in easily with the human population. Adamski wrote about how they contacted him to set up meetings that led to his famous flights aboard extraterrestrial vehicles. While controversy over Adamski’s contact experiences and his credibility continues, Adamski’s UFO sightings and contacts with extraterrestrials were supported by an impressive collection of witnesses, photographs and films that a number of independent investigators concluded were not hoaxes.

Adamski’s testimony offers important insights into how extraterrestrials may be living incognito among the human population. After discussing the Adamski case and the strongest evidence supporting it, I will then discuss other contactees similarly claiming to have encountered extraterrestrials acting like ordinary citizens. Finally, I examine a number of whistleblowers who claim to have witnessed documents or events confirming official government knowledge that extraterrestrials live among ordinary citizens.

Exopolitics: False Flag Operations: Declassified Military Documents Show How US Government Planned Terrorist Attacks Against its Own Citizens

NOTE: This article illustrates, through declassified U.S. military-intelligence documents, how False Flag Operations were employed by the U.S. Government in order to attempt to commence hostilities and wars against a designated enemy, in this case the Republic of Cuba. 

The article states, "Dr. Steven Greer [Director of the Discosure Project] has met and spoken to many intelligence, military, government and corporate whistleblowers who explain that to sustain and expand their existence in their current form, the military, industrial, intelligence, laboratory complex need a constant influx of new enemies. Greer was told that conflicts would evolve "from Cold War, to Rogue Nations, to Global Terrorism, to the ultimate trump card: A hoaxed threat from space." http://www.disclosureproject.org/cosmicdeception.htm

False Flag Operations: Declassified Military Documents Show How US Government Planned Terrorist Attacks Against its Own Citizens
Thu Sep 7, 3:00 AM ET

New York, NY (PRWEB) September 7th, 2006 – As reported by ABC News, stunning military documents codenamed "Operation Northwoods" were declassified in recent years and show how in 1962, the top US military leaders planned an operation to create terror attacks against its own cities and kill US citizens.

See: http://abcnews.go.com/US/story?id=92662&page=1

The documents state that through the fabrication of false evidence, the US would blame Cuba and gain public support for an unpopular war against Castro. They included developing a fake Communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, the use of airplanes, and much more.

For further details, the now declassified military documents are available at the National Security Archive of the George Washington University: http://www.gwu.edu/~nsarchiv/news/20010430/

In his newly published book "Towers of Deception – The Media Cover-Up of 9/11," Barrie Zwicker, writes about Operation Northwoods and many other such operations that the military and intelligence community refer to as "false flag operations." http://www.newsociety.com/bookid/3932

Zwicker is a lifelong journalist who was a media critic for 35 years and who often appeared on Canadian national TV and radio.

His book explains that these covert operations are designed to appear as if they are being carried out by other entities, such as other countries or terrorist groups, to help demonize them and justify wars for geopolitical reasons and for financial gains.

The term "false flag" is derived from the naval warfare concept of flying false colors; that is, flying the flag of a country other than one's own.

The ABC News article dated May 1, 2001 explains that Operation Northwoods was approved and signed by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the Eisenhower appointee Army General Lyman L. Lemnitzer, and was presented to Kennedy’s Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara on March 13, 1962.

A year earlier, President Eisenhower, apparently aware of such dangers, had warned the nation during his January 17, 1961 farewell address:

"In the counsels of Government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the Military Industrial Complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals so that security and liberty may prosper together." http://www.eisenhower.archives.gov/farewell.htm

General Lemnitzer, the Eisenhower appointee and highest ranking officer of the US military in 1962, recommended that Operation Northwoods be run by the military. It was signed and approved by all of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the panel comprising the highest-ranking members of each major branch of the Armed Forces.

As per the ABC News article, the only reason why Operation Northwoods did not materialize in 1962 was because it was apparently turned down by President John F. Kennedy.

By law, the President of the United States is the commander in chief. The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the Army, the Marine Corps, the Navy, the Air Force and the Coast Guard, are all under his command.

The Joint Chiefs of Staff website explains that based on the Goldwater-Nichols DOD Reorganization Act of 1986, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is today the principal military adviser to the President but doesn’t exercise military command over any combatant forces. http://www.jcs.mil/#

The ABC News article quotes author of "Body of Secrets – Anatomy of the Ultra-Secret National Security Agency," James Bamford, a former Washington Investigative Producer for ABC’s World News Tonight. He says that if such war plans against American cities were put into operation, it would have amounted to treason.

Article III, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution states: "Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them..." http://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/constitution.articleiii.html

Bamford goes on to say that around that time, "the Senate Foreign Relations Committee published its own report on right-wing extremism in the military, warning a ‘considerable danger’ in the ‘education and propaganda activities of military personnel’ had been uncovered. The committee even called for an examination of any ties between Lemnitzer and right-wing groups. But Congress didn't get wind of Northwoods..."

Media critic Zwicker says that today, Congress and journalists have access to the declassified documents of Operation Northwoods and that the media must indeed reflect on Eisenhower’s warning of vigilance and be willing to learn and investigate more, publish more and broadcast more information about false flag operations to help prevent such acts of treason from being committed in the future.
In his controversial book critical of both the 9/11 "official story" and the media coverage of the events, Zwicker goes through the history of false flag operations dating back to the 1600s, and among many examples, cites the February 27th,1933 fire of the German Parliament (Reichstag fire) three days prior to Germany’s federal election.

Historians later documented that the fire had been authorized by right-wing Nazis where Hitler used the event to declare a state of emergency and pressured the German President, Hindenburg, to sign a decree abolishing most of the human rights provisions of the Constitution.

Recently, on August 29th 2006, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld recounted what he called "the lessons of history," including the failed efforts to appease the right-wing Adolf Hitler regime of the 1930s.

"I recount this history because once again we face the same kind of challenges in efforts to confront the rising threat of a new type of fascism," said Rumsfeld.
http://www.cnn.com/2006/POLITICS/08/29/rumsfeld.ap/index.html

As a senior media critic, Zwicker strongly recommends that all media people indeed follow Rumsfeld’s suggestions in learning the lessons of Nazi history. He points to researching Hitler’s rise to power and how he created a fascist state where there was suppression of the opposition through secrecy, terror, torture and censorship, all justified under nationalism and patriotism.

He also believes that journalists should research and publish more about how Hitler's Nazis manipulated the German population into wars, using psychological manipulation and behavior modification by inducing trauma and fear in others, a process of trauma-based mind control referred to in the now declassified CIA files of "MK ULTRA." To order declassified MK ULTRA documents from the CIA, go to: http://www.wanttoknow.info/mindcontrol10pg#ciadocs

Zwicker believes that the media must investigate and report on whether these fear-based psychological manipulation techniques have been or are being put into application by US leaders in our post 9/11 world, as they appear to be. 9/11 caused much trauma and fear.

Concerned with the direction that the US has headed since 9/11, Dr. Robert M. Bowman, referring to the Bush / Cheney administration during a radio interview, said: "I think there's been nothing closer to fascism than what we've seen lately from this government.” http://www.govinfo.bnet-newmedia.co.uk/opinions_Articles.php?IDVal=50

Bowman is a retired United States Air Force Lieutenant Colonel, a recipient of the Eisenhower Medal, a former head of the US "Star Wars" space weapons program during the Reagan administration and one of America’s foremost experts on National Security.

He commented about the Patriot Act as having, "Done more to destroy the rights of Americans than all of our enemies combined."

Bowman is part of a group of notable experts called the "Scholars For 9/11 Truth" made up of professors, engineers, former intelligence and military personnel, journalists, attorneys and many other professionals who say that the 9/11 attacks raise a red flag because they have many elements of false flag operations, such as a "stand-down" of the military defense on that day, one that must be questioned.
The group, made up of several dozen scholars, believes that the media must no longer ignore the fact that a growing number of them are calling for truly independent investigations into 9/11, including investigations to look into the evidence that points towards a possible false flag operation.
For more information about the evidence that the group claims raise serious new questions, readers can visit their website: http://www.scholarsfor911truth.org/

The group’s call for a truly independent 9/11 investigation appears to resonate with a growing number of mainstream Americans.

A May 2006 Zogby poll of 1,200 adults nationwide found that 45% of those surveyed said that Congress or an International Tribunal should re-investigate the attacks, including whether any US government officials consciously allowed or helped facilitate their success.

Part of the popularity of this growing awareness may be due in part to the millions of people who have viewed one of the most watched online videos of all time, called "Loose Change," which addresses false flag operations and raises serious new questions about the official government 9/11 story. See: http://www.loosechange911.com/

The Zogby poll also showed that more than 42 percent believe that the government and the 9/11 Commission concealed or refused to investigate critical evidence that contradicts their official explanation of the September 11th attacks.
To view a detailed copy of the Zogby poll report, visit: http://www.911truth.org/images/911TruthZogbyPollFinalReport.htm

The mainstream American public has not been alone in their frustration from lack of answers about the official 9/11 story. Addressing the White House commissioned 9/11 investigation, a September 1st, 2006 Associated Press article states that:

"The Sept. 11 commission's chairmen, Thomas Kean and Lee Hamilton, said in their recently published book that the commission found it mind-boggling that authorities claimed that their air defenses had reacted quickly. In the book, ‘Without Precedent,’ Kean and Hamilton said the panel was so frustrated with repeated misstatements by the Pentagon and FAA about their response to the 2001 terror attacks that it considered an investigation into possible deception."
http://301url.com/4LJ

On August 9th, 2006, referring to their book and to this issue, CNN’s Lou Dobbs as saying: "But the fact that they were (would) continue and perpetuate the lie, suggests that we need a full investigation of what is going on and what is demonstrably an incompetent and at worst deceitful federal government." http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0608/09/ldt.01.html

The historic reality of the deception of false flag operations is confirmed by former Justice Department prosecutor, John Loftus, who once held some of the highest security clearances in the world with special access to NATO Cosmic, CIA codeword, and Top Secret Nuclear files.

Loftus has been sought after for his terrorism expertise by Fox News, MSNBC, ABC, and many other media across the USA. In a radio interview, when asked about "Operation Northwoods," he said "Sure, yeah, yeah. But you know it, there were thousands of those plans." http://www.debatingforum.com/viewtopic.php?p=19356&sid=06afa63958692e6723c5d72393292cb7

In his book, Zwicker elaborates that false flag operations are the least-recognized, highest impact category of human deceit. He says: "False flag op is the indispensable, most dependable device rulers use to mobilize their populations, especially behind wars the rulers want."

According to a radio interview on Vancouver’s Coop radio, Zwicker believes that it is not impossible that such future events have already been planned in order to move the US towards Martial Law. http://exopolitics.blogs.com/exopolitics_radio/

The media critic has concluded that not unlike Germany in the 1930s, a relatively small right-wing extremist group of rulers want more and more power, and will gradually further eliminate civil liberties by manipulating people’s minds using more Orwellian language.

He says that if the media doesn’t start paying more attention, there will be increased oppression of opposition that will likely move America, and perhaps other Western countries, towards a gradual further elimination of civil liberties. He calls this the path towards a new fascism, one controlled by a small group of ruling elites who perpetuate war after war, such as a never-ending "war on terror," to maintain their power and control.

Dr. Steven Greer has met and spoken to many intelligence, military, government and corporate whistleblowers who explain that to sustain and expand their existence in their current form, the military, industrial, intelligence, laboratory complex need a constant influx of new enemies.
Greer was told that conflicts would evolve "from Cold War, to Rogue Nations, to Global Terrorism, to the ultimate trump card: A hoaxed threat from space." http://www.disclosureproject.org/cosmicdeception.htm

On a brighter note, Zwicker believes that our current path of enmification, the art and consequence of enemy-making, can be reversed if, for example, the media investigates terrorist attacks to find out if they are false flag operations, expose deception, and keep the ruling elites and their circles accountable, not unlike how the Washington Post covered Watergate in the early 1970s.

The Washington Post did a story about Fred Burks in December 2004. He is a whistleblower and former senior State Department language interpreter to top-level politicians such as President Bill Clinton and President George W. Bush. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A49449-2004Dec8.html
Based on his website that exposes cover-ups, Burks believes that we first need to speak candidly about what's happening in the world at present and move beyond secrecy and fear. He concludes that the more informed we are, the more difficult it will be to perpetuate the deception of any future false flag operations.

Burks supports choices that lead to a more spiritual and purpose-centered life of "Compassion In Action," as referred to by President Bush on December 12, 2002. http://www.lightstreamers.com/Dannion_PresidentBush.htm

He also believes that when we walk our talk, we can inspire others to lead in a way that creates a brighter future for all.
To read Burks’ view on what is happening and what we can do about it, see: http://www.wanttoknow.info/brighterfuture

Burks’ philosophy resonates with Zwicker’s message about how, by working together in exposing the deception of false flag operations, the media and people from all levels of society can help prevent them, reduce the manufacturing of fear and hate, and improve the human condition. For more information about Zwicker’s book, visit: http://www.newsociety.com/bookid/3932

Zwicker will be speaking at the Great Hall at Cooper Union in New York City on September 10th, 2006, a conference where he will be joined with Dr. Robert Bowman and other researchers who are encouraging the media to further learn about false flag operations.

EXTRATERRESTRIAL FALSE FLAG SCENARIO: Dr. Steven M. Greer

http://www.disclosureproject.org/cosmicdeception.htm

COSMIC DECEPTION: LET THE CITIZEN BEWARE
by Steven M. Greer M.D.
Director, The Disclosure Project

http://www.disclosureproject.org/

Copyright 2002

Imagine this. It is the summer of 2001, and someone presents you with a script for a movie or book that tells how a diabolical terrorist plot unfolds wherein both 110 story World Trade Center towers and part of the Pentagon are destroyed by commercial jets hijacked and flown into those structures.

Of course you would laugh, and if you were a movie mogul or book editor, reject it out of hand as ridiculous and implausible, even for a fictional novel or movie. After all, how could a commercial jet, being tracked on radar after two jets had already hit the World Trade towers, make it through our air defenses, into the most sensitive airspace in the world, and in broad daylight on a crystal clear day, slam into the Pentagon! And this in a country that spends over $1 billion a day to defend itself! Absurd, illogical - nobody would swallow it!

Unfortunately, there are some of us who have seen these scripts - and of far worse things to come - and we are not laughing.

One of the few silver linings to these recent tragedies is that maybe - just maybe - people will take seriously, however far-fetched it may seem at first, the prospect that a shadowy, para-governmental and transnational entity exists that has kept UFOs secret - and is planning a deception and tragedy that will dwarf the events of 9/11.

The testimony of hundreds of government, military and corporate insiders has established this: That UFOs are real, that some are built by our secret 'black' shadowy government projects and some are from extraterrestrial civilizations, and that a group has kept this secret so that the technology behind the UFO can be withheld - until the right time. This technology can - and eventually will - replace the need for oil, gas, coal, ionizing nuclear power, and other centralized and highly destructive energy systems.

This 5 trillion dollar industry - energy and transportation - is currently highly centralized, metered and lucrative. It is the stuff that runs the entire industrialized world. It is the mother of all special interests. It is not about money as you and I think of it, but about geo-political power - the very centralized power on which the current order in the world runs. The world is kept in a state of roiling wars, endless poverty for most of Earth's denizens and global environmental ruin, just to prop up this evil world order.

As immense as that game is, there is a bigger one: Control through fear. As Wernher von Braun related to Dr. Carol Rosin, his spokesperson for the last 4 years of his life, a maniacal machine - the military, industrial, intelligence, laboratory complex - would go from Cold War, to Rogue Nations, to Global Terrorism (the stage we find ourselves at today), to the ultimate trump card: A hoaxed threat from space.

To justify eventually spending trillions of dollars on space weapons, the world would be deceived about a threat from outer space, thus uniting the world in fear, in militarism, and in war.

Since 1992 I have seen this script unveiled to me by at least a dozen well-placed insiders. Of course, initially I laughed, thinking this just too absurd and far-fetched. Dr. Rosin gave her testimony to the Disclosure Project before 9/11. And yet others told me explicitly that things that looked like UFOs but that are built and under the control of deeply secretive 'black' projects, were being used to simulate - hoax - ET-appearing events, including some abductions and cattle mutilations, to sow the early seeds of cultural fear regarding life in outer space. And that at some point after global terrorism, events would unfold that would utilize the now-revealed Alien Reproduction Vehicles (ARVs, or reversed-engineered UFOs made by humans by studying actual ET craft - see the book "Disclosure" by the same author) to hoax an attack on Earth.

Like the movie "Independence Day", an attempt to unite the world through militarism would unfold using ET as the new cosmic scapegoat (think Jews during the Third Reich).

None of this is new to me or other insiders. The report from Iron Mountain, NY, written in the 1960s, described the need to demonize life in outer space so we could have a new enemy. An enemy off-planet that could unite humans (in fear and war) and that would prove to be the ultimate prop for the trillion dollar military industrial complex that conservative Republican President and five star general Eisenhower warned us about in 1961 (no one was listening then, either...).

So here is the post-9/11 script - one that will be played out unless enough people are informed and the plan can be foiled because they will be unable to fool a sufficient number of citizens and leaders:

After a period of terrorism - a period during which the detonation of nuclear devices will be threatened and possibly actuated, thus justifying expanding the weaponization of space - an effort will ramp up to present the public with information about a threat from outer space. Not just asteroids hitting the Earth, but other threats. An extraterrestrial threat.

Over the past 40 years, UFOlogy, as it is called, combined with a mighty media machine, has increasingly demonized ETs via fearsome movies like "Independence Day", and pseudo-science that presents alien kidnappings and abuse as a fact (in some circles) of modern life. That some humans have had contact with ETs I have no doubt; that the real ET contact has been subsumed in an ocean of hoaxed accounts I am certain.

That is, real ET events are seldom reported out to the public. The Machine ensures that the hoaxed, frightening and intrinsically xenophobic accounts are the ones seen and read by millions. This mental conditioning to fear ET has been subtly reinforced for decades, in preparation for future deceptions. Deceptions that will make 9/11 look trivial.

I write this now because I have recently been contacted by several highly placed media and intelligence sources that have made it clear to me that hoaxed events and story-lines are imminent that will attempt to further ramp up the fear machine regarding UFOs and ETs. After all, to have an enemy, you must make the people hate and fear a person, a group of people, or in this case an entire category of beings.

To be clear: the maniacal covert programs controlling UFO secrecy, ARVs and related technologies - including those technologies that can simulate ET events, ET abductions and the like - plan to hijack Disclosure, spin it into the fire of fear, and roll out events that will eventually present ETs as a new enemy. Do not be deceived.

This hogwash, already the stuff of countless books, videos, movies, documentaries and the like, will attempt to glom onto the facts, evidence and first-hand insider testimony of The Disclosure Project, and on its coattails, deliver to the world the cosmic deception that falsely portrays ETs as a threat from space. Do not be deceived.

By commingling fact with fiction, and by hoaxing UFO events that can look terrifying, the Plan is to eventually create a new, sustainable, off-planet enemy. And who will be the wiser?

You will. Because now you know that after 60 years, trillions of dollars and the best scientific minds in the world pressed into action, a secretive, shadowy group - a government within the government and at once fully outside the government as we know it - has mastered the technologies, the art of deception, and the capability to launch an attack on Earth and make it look like ETs did it. In 1997, I brought a man to Washington to brief members of Congress and others about this plan. Our entire team at the time met this man. He had been present at planning sessions when ARVs - things built by Lockheed, Northrup, et al, and housed in secretive locations around the world - would be used to simulate an attack on certain assets, making leaders and citizens alike believe that there was a threat from space, when there is none. (Before he could testify, his handlers spirited him away to a secret location in Virginia until the briefing was over...) Sound familiar? Wernher von Braun
warned of such a hoax, as a pretext for putting war in space. And many others have warned of the same.

Space based weapons are already in place - part of a secret parallel space program that has been operating since the 1960s. ARVs are built and ready to go (see the book "Disclosure" and the chapter with the testimony of Mark McCandlish, et al). Space holographic deception technologies are in place, tested and ready to fire. And the Big Media is a pawn, now taking dictation from the right hand of the king.

I know this all sounds like science fiction. Absurd. Impossible. Just like 9/11 would have sounded before 9/11. But the unthinkable happened and may happen again, unless we are vigilant.

Combine all of this with the current atmosphere of fear and manipulation and there is a real risk of suspending our collective judgment and our constitution.

But know this: If there was a threat from outer space, we would have known about it as soon as humans started exploding nuclear weapons and going into space with manned travel. That we are still breathing the free air of Earth, given the galacticly stupid and reckless actions of an out of control, illegal, secret group, is abundant testimony to the restraint and peaceful intentions of these visitors. The threat is wholly human. And it is we who must address this threat, rein it in and transform the current situation of war, destruction and secret manipulation to one of true Disclosure and an era of sustained peace.

War in space, to replace war on Earth, is not evolution, but cosmic madness. A world thus united in fear is worse than one divided by ignorance. It is now time for the great leap into the future, a leap that moves us out of fear and ignorance and into an unbroken era of universal peace. Know that this is our destiny. And it will be ours just as soon as we choose it.

Former Canadian Minister Of Defence Asks Canadian Parliament Asked To Hold Hearings On Relations With Alien "Et" Civilizations

Thu Nov 24, 7:00 AM ET


OTTAWA, CANADA (PRWEB) November 24, 2005 -- A former Canadian Minister of Defence and Deputy Prime Minister under Pierre Trudeau has joined forces with three Non-governmental organizations to ask the Parliament of Canada to hold public hearings on Exopolitics -- relations with “ETs.”

By “ETs,” Mr. Hellyer and these organizations mean ethical, advanced extraterrestrial civilizations that may now be visiting Earth.

On September 25, 2005, in a startling speech at the University of Toronto that caught the attention of mainstream newspapers and magazines, Paul Hellyer, Canada’s Defence Minister from 1963-67 under Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Prime Minister Lester Pearson, publicly stated: "UFOs, are as real as the airplanes that fly over your head."

Mr. Hellyer went on to say, "I'm so concerned about what the consequences might be of starting an intergalactic war, that I just think I had to say something."

Hellyer revealed, "The secrecy involved in all matters pertaining to the Roswell incident was unparalled. The classification was, from the outset, above top secret, so the vast majority of U.S. officials and politicians, let alone a mere allied minister of defence, were never in-the-loop."

Hellyer warned, "The United States military are preparing weapons which could be used against the aliens, and they could get us into an intergalactic war without us ever having any warning. He stated, "The Bush administration has finally agreed to let the military build a forward base on the moon, which will put them in a better position to keep track of the goings and comings of the visitors from space, and to shoot at them, if they so decide."

Hellyer’s speech ended with a standing ovation. He said, "The time has come to lift the veil of secrecy, and let the truth emerge, so there can be a real and informed debate, about one of the most important problems facing our planet today."

Three Non-governmental organizations took Hellyer’s words to heart, and approached Canada’s Parliament in Ottawa, Canada’s capital, to hold public hearings on a possible ET presence, and what Canada should do. The Canadian Senate, which is an appointed body, has held objective, well-regarded hearings and issued reports on controversial issues such as same-sex marriage and medical marijuana,

On October 20, 2005, the Institute for Cooperation in Space requested Canadian Senator Colin Kenny, Senator, Chair of The Senate Standing Senate Committee on National Security and Defence, “schedule public hearings on the Canadian Exopolitics Initiative, so that witnesses such as the Hon. Paul Hellyer, and Canadian-connected high level military-intelligence, NORAD-connected, scientific, and governmental witnesses facilitated by the Disclosure Project and by the Toronto Exopolitics Symposium can present compelling evidence, testimony, and Public Policy recommendations.”

The Non-governmental organizations seeking Parliament hearings include Canada-based Toronto Exopolitics Symposium, which organized the University of Toronto Symposium at which Mr. Hellyer spoke.

The Disclosure Project, a U.S.– based organization that has assembled high level military-intelligence witnesses of a possible ET presence, is also one of the organizations seeking Canadian Parliament hearings.

Vancouver-based Institute for Cooperation in Space (ICIS), whose International Director headed a proposed 1977 Extraterrestrial Communication Study for the White House of former U.S. President Jimmy Carter, who himself has publicly reported a 1969 Close Encounter of the First Kind with a UFO, filed the original request for Canadian Parliament hearings.

The Canadian Exopolitics Initiative, presented by the organizations to a Senate Committee panel hearing in Winnipeg, Canada, on March 10, 2005, proposes that the Government of Canada undertake a Decade of Contact.

The proposed Decade of Contact is “a 10-year process of formal, funded public education, scientific research, educational curricula development and implementation, strategic planning, community activity, and public outreach concerning our terrestrial society’s full cultural, political, social, legal, and governmental communication and public interest diplomacy with advanced, ethical Off-Planet cultures now visiting Earth.”

Canada has a long history of opposing the basing of weapons in Outer Space. On September 22, 2004 Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin declared to the U.N. General Assembly,” "Space is our final frontier. It has always captured our imagination. What a tragedy it would be if space became one big weapons arsenal and the scene of a new arms race.

Martin stated, "In 1967, the United Nations agreed that weapons of mass
destruction must not be based in space. The time has come to extend this ban to all weapons..."

In May, 2003, speaking before the Canadian House of Commons Standing Committee on National Defence and Veterans Affairs, former Minister of Foreign Affairs of Canada Lloyd Axworthy, stated “Washington's offer to Canada is not an invitation to join America under a protective shield, but it presents a global security doctrine that violates Canadian values on many levels."

Axworthy concluded, “There should be an uncompromising commitment to preventing the placement of weapons in space.”

On February 24, 2005, Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin made official Canada's decision not to take part in the U.S government’s Ballistic Missile Defence program.

Paul Hellyer, who now seeks Canadian Parliament hearings on relations with ETs, on May 15, 2003, stated in Toronto’s Globe & Mail newspaper, “Canada should accept the long-standing invitation of U.S. Congressman Dennis Kucinich of Ohio to launch a conference to seek approval of an international treaty to ban weapons in space. That would be a positive Canadian contribution toward a more peaceful world.”

In early November 2005, the Canadian Senate wrote ICIS, indicating the Senate Committee could not hold hearings on ETs in 2005, because of their already crowded schedule.

“That does not deter us,” one spokesperson for the Non-governmental organizations said, “We are going ahead with our request to Prime Minister Paul Martin and the official opposition leaders in the House of Commons now, and we will re-apply with the Senate of Canada in early 2006.

“Time is on the side of open disclosure that there are ethical Extraterrestrial civilizations visiting Earth,” The spokesperson stated. “Our Canadian government needs to openly address these important issues of the possible deployment of weapons in outer war plans against ethical ET societies.”

When the Political Frontier is In the Stars

This article, reprinted from Atlantis Rising Magazine (April 2005), is by Jeane Manning, author of The Coming Energy Revolution: The Search for Free Energy, co-author of Angels Do Not Play This HAARP, and Board Member of the New Energy Movement.  Jeane Manning interviewed Alfred Lambremont Webre, JD, MEd about his book EXOPOLITICS: POLITICS, GOVERNMENT AND LAW IN THE UNIVERSE (Filament Books), available at http://www.filamentbookclub.com/  

REPORT FROM THE FRONT: Tracking the News of the Coming Energy Revolution

When the Political Frontier is In the Stars

By Jeane Manning

For drama, this life story matches those in best-selling books and films:

Through his own efforts, idealistic young lawyer rises to prominence in New York city, stirs up action in the Carter administration White House, runs smack into the wall of military secrecy, survives directed-energy attacks, and points our attention toward the stars -- toward Universe Society. 

However, that lawyer, Alfred Webre III, isn’t writing his memoirs yet. Middle-aged now, he remains an idealistic scholar and would prefer that you focus on his concepts. His new book Exopolitics: Politics, Government and Law in the Universe is a treatise rather than a thriller, although quite readable. In terms of significance, its concepts top those of any bestseller. It seems that harmonious technology for non-polluting abundant energy is merely one of the stunning gifts waiting for humankind when and if our leaders openly and benevolently interact with representatives of spiritually- and technologically advanced civilizations.

Exopolitics is the study of how we can bridge from our current human politics out into Universe society. Why would someone who has taught Economics at Yale and strode in Washington DC corridors of power risk his career for such far-out ideals?

To get some answers, I convinced Alfred Lambremont Webre, JD, to describe some – not all -- of his life’s turning points. He said his first influence was his Cuban-American mother who drummed a message into her nine children: “We’re here on Earth to do good and leave the planet a better place.”

Alfred began his career with academic honors from the preparatory schools and universities that produce our political leaders. A Fulbright Scholar, he graduated from Yale University and earned a doctorate from Yale Law School, where he was a National Scholar.

In New York city, Webre joined the Environmental Protection Administration in 1970 as General Counsel. He rubbed shoulders with ecological scientists and other intellectual stars in closed thinktanks, pushed through landmark legislation for the city and was quoted in the media as a spokesperson for Gaia (Earth as a living entity).

Having made a name in Mayor John Lindsey’s city, Webre was promoted to further challenges when Lindsey ran for president. Webre became a consultant to the Ford Foundation and helped launch major environmental fundings.

At the same time, he was becoming aware of Gaia’s need to join a larger Universe society. Webre won’t tell how he encountered such paradigm-shattering information, but if you talk with him long enough you know intuitively that this straightforward soul couldn’t ignore a call that involves huge potential benefits for humankind.

His response was in character -- as a scholar. By 1975, with the help of colleagues he had published a theory of how off-planet cultures from advanced societies would communicate with a lower-order society. His “Context Communication Theory” interprets ET actions and messages almost as they were dreams.

The timing seemed perfect for opening up such topics. Then-governor James Earl (Jimmy) Carter had had a personal UFO experience in 1969 while waiting for a Lions’ Club meeting. As he headed toward the White House in the mid-1970s, Carter reportedly vowed to make the issue public. Meanwhile, Webre’s writings and accomplishments earned him a prestigious job; he was chosen to be one of six futurists at the Center for the Study of Social Policy at Stanford Research Institute (SRI). During his job interview, Webre asked to do a study based on the theory he had published in the early 1970s, the Context Communication Theory. When he was hired as a SRI senior policy analyst, Webre thought, “This is it! SRI does research for the federal government…”

He began spending four days a week in Washington DC and the rest of the week in Palo Alto, California, with his family. He was doing research with the National Science Foundation and other agencies, but at the same time reminding SRI officials why he came there to work -- he wanted to head an extraterrestrial communication study.

Previously such studies had always been under the aegis of the military, but he wanted to do the first civilian scientific extraterrestrial study in the history of the U.S. government. It would be sponsored by the White House instead of the Pentagon, with NASA, National Science Foundation and panels of outside experts coming in. He gathered support and advice from scientists in the SRI community and they put together a proposal. 

Meanwhile he was travelling coast to coast for various meetings. For instance, he was on a Senate panel regarding future national security needs. He sat at tables across from people such as the head of the Defense Intelligence Agency. (Webre told me he was outspoken and had been known to verbally blast the DIA chairman for what Webre saw as ecological blasphemy.) On that panel, a powerful senator sat on his right and an admiral -- the founder of the Center for Defense Information – was also at the table. The admiral and Webre had co-authored a book proposal titled Armageddon - The Chilling Prospect of Nuclear War. With such influential connections, Webre felt somewhat like a knight in shining armor. It looked as if he had a perfect opportunity to do as Mother had advised – make a difference on Earth.

He asked around and was given the names of Carter White House domestic policy staff who were interested in the extraterrestrial issue. During his frequent visits to Washington, he contacted those staff members and presented the audacious proposal for the study. There were to be no secret findings; it would all be made public. “And we went forward.”

Stanford Research Institute approved the project in May of 1977. Webre viewed it as a Rolls-Royce of projects, and rejoiced that he had everyone on board. But that fall the project was abruptly terminated, under the threat of SRI having all its contracts with the Department of Defense (DoD) cancelled.

Who made the threat? Webre replies that it was issued verbally from the DoD to the liaison between SRI and the DoD. The liaison then traveled to California, to SRI. Weber was called into the office of the SRI vice-president and to told to “desist”.

I prod Webre’s memory of that scene. He recalls that the meeting took place in the office of the SRI vice-president, a man of African–American descent. Peter Schwartz, who later co-authored the Abrupt Climate Change [2010-2030] study for the Pentagon, was there too. Schwartz, also a senior Policy Analyst, was an advisor to the ET-related project according to Webre.

Before the liaison flew in from Washington, they called Webre in to prepare him for hearing the ultimatum: if SRI went ahead with the extraterrestrial communication project, the DoD would terminate all of the many contracts between SRI and the Pentagon.

The outraged Webre was told to hide his feelings, sit quietly and “yes” the DoD liaison. “When he comes in, dissimulate.”

Webre says he couldn’t follow those instructions; he can’t present a false front even with a DoD liaison. Instead he burst out with “What do you mean, it’s cancelled? I’m working with the White House!”

Webre repeatedly tried to get answers. “The White House just approved the project. Why doesn’t the Pentagon want it to go forward?”

The Pentagon/SRI liaison reportedly gave a flat reply. “There are no UFOs.”

Webre describes that meeting as a donnybrook – a bitter quarrel. However, the government department had the financial power, so the project was terminated. “Then came the attacks upon my person. Using microwave weapons…”

Those attacks began in Washington, slightly earlier, he recalls. Just before he returned to SRI to have that  meeting with the liaison, Webre had been on a secondary project, meeting with the assistant secretary of Defense. When he came out of that meeting he was hit with what he calls mind control weapons.

What did it feel like?  Webre replies, “It’s very painful and it stuns you psychologically. It feels like you’re totally disoriented.”

“This is how they have coped with activists in this area...”

The attacks opened up a chapter in his life in which he became cognizant of electromagnetic or more exotic weaponry and became an advocate for others who are similarly targeted. The victims are put in an unbelievable situation in which they will no longer be taken as seriously. 

Nevertheless, with some help from friends Webre continued a career of varied accomplishments. For instance, he was a delegate to specialized United Nations conferences. California governor Jerry Brown appointed Webre to a taskforce on earthquake preparedness. Webre produced and hosted the first live radio broadcast between the USA and the former Soviet Union, in 1987. He was elected as a delegate to the 1996 Texas Democratic convention. Webre is still a member of the District of Columbia bar. He taught civil liberties at the University of Texas. The list goes on. 

In the year 2000, Webre went public with the concept of exopolitics, which is now an emerging field. A prominent author in the field, social scientist Dr. Michael Salla, is said to have read Webre’s earlier online treatise before expanding on the topic and writing his own Exopolitics book. Webre praises Salla’s and the efforts of Stephen Bassett. Bassett hosted the first Exopolitics conference, last year in Washington DC. Webre’s new book will be launched at the second annual Exopolitics gathering, on April 22-24. (http://exopolitics.blogs.com/www.paradigmclock.com/x-conference.htm)

Interest in the discipline is developing fast, he says, and couldn’t come at a more strategic time. He cites global problems that are largely caused by our fossil fuels/ nuclear civilization. 

“An ecological approach to these problems may provide us with life-saving and planet-saving solutions.” Webre speaks of a Galactic Federation that sees our potential self-induced ecological catastrophes as necessary for humankind’s evolution, so that we’ll “acknowledge our short-sighted exploitation of Earth’s resources and our social dysfunctions, and then build anew after a considerable period of self-searching.”

Today, Webre is International Director of the Institute for Cooperation in Space (ICIS), an on-air host on Vancouver Coop Radio (http://www.coopradio.org/) and author of a half-dozen books.

His voice joins others who issue warnings. For instance, Steven M. Greer MD, director of The Disclosure Project calls for open Congressional hearings into the UFO matter. Dr. Greer has said "There are ongoing illegal covert programs that consider themselves above the law and have deliberately acted outside of constitutionally-required control and oversight. These programs deal with UFO and extraterrestrial matters and new energy and propulsion technologies. They have consistently denied Congress and US Presidents access to these programs, and (the covert operations) constitute a grave threat to US national security."

Webre speaks of many alternatives, such as naming  a public interest diplomacy outreach program to Off Planet Cultures a “Star Dreams Initiative (SDI)”, and developing “a project that offers an alternative vision to the weaponization of space, i.e. Star Wars.”

In Exopolitics, Webre argues that most of the story modern human beings have been told about Earth and its outer space environs is wrong.  He presents the hypothesis that Earth is a quarantined planet in a populated, evolving, highly organized inter-planetary, inter-galactic, multi-dimensional Universe society of life-bearing planets. And that the quarantine, which probably has a spiritual cause, may be ending. He makes the point that our society will have to kick its perpetual-war habit, however, before being invited out.

His Exopolitics model bridges between the familiar locked-in limited consensual thinking of our society, and an expanded awareness we could enjoy in what he calls Universe Society. The insights in Exopolitics: Politics, Government and Law in the Universe resonate with what researchers on the energy frontier have learned about socioeconomic, environmental, geopolitical and spiritual awareness issues related to truly paradigm-busting breakthrough energy inventions.

If you attend the Exopolitics Expo, get his book, read it and remember to ask Dr. Webre about the proposed Decade of Contact and not his personal story. He’s serious about that. even though he was persuaded to tell a bit of his story just this once...

Former Canadian Defense Minister Speaks Out!

Former Canadian Defense Minister Speaks Out on Extraterrestrial Visitors & Government Secrecy.

On September 25, 2005, Hon Paul Hellyer, the former Canadian Minister for National Defense gave a speech in Toronto at an event titled: "Exopolitics Toronto: A Symposium on UFO Disclosure and Planetary Direction" (www.exopoliticstoronto.com) . Hellyer described his time as Minister for Defense from 1963 - 1967 where the occasional UFO sighting report crossed his desk.

He claims to never have had time for what he considered to be a "flight of fancy", but nevertheless retained an interest in the UFO phenomenon. While Minister for Defense, he was guest of honor at the opening of the world's first UFO landing pad at
Alberta, Canada in 1967.

He thought it an innovative idea from a progressive Canadian community willing to pay for his helicopter ride, but did not give much thought to UFOs as having serious policy implications. He also describes a private UFO sighting he later had with family and guests, but once again attributed it to a 'flight of fancy' rather than anything having serious policy implications.

Hellyer's position on UFOs dramatically changed after watching the late Peter Jennings documentary special, "Seeing is Believing" in February 2005. Hellyer decided to read a book that had been idly sitting on his book shelf for two years. Philip Corso's, The Day After Roswell, sparked intense interest for Hellyer in terms of its policy implications. Corso named real people, institutions and events in his book that could be checked. Intrigued by the policy implications, Hellyer decided to confirm whether Corso's book was real or a "work of fiction".

He contacted a retired United States Air Force General and spoke to him directly to verify Corso's claims. The unnamed General simply said: "every word is true and more". Hellyer then proceeded to discuss the "and more =85" with the general and claimed he was told remarkable things concerning UFOs and the extraterrestrial hypothesis that interplanetary visitors have been here since at least 1947. Finally convinced that the UFO phenomenon was real Hellyer decided to come forward and speak at Exopolitics Toronto about some of the "most profoundly important policy questions that must be addressed."  The policy questions Hellyer addressed in his talk are both profound and vitally important for citizens of every nation of Earth.

First, Hellyer claimed that evidence concerning UFOs is the "greatest and most successful cover up in the history of the world". He confirmed that senior political officials even at the rank of Minister of Defense, a position he himself occupied, are simply out of the loop when it comes to information concerning UFOs and visiting extraterrestrials. From a democratic perspective, that raises many concerns about oversight, transparency and accountability of those in control of the
information, technology and projects concerning the extraterrestrial visitors.

A second profound policy question concerns the designation by the U.S. military of visiting extraterrestrials as an 'enemy'. According to Hellyer, this had led to the development of "laser and particle guns to the point that they can be used against the visitors from space." It is this targeting of visiting extraterrestrials that concerns Hellyer, and he asks "is it wise to spend so much time and money to build weapon systems to rid the skies of alien visitors?" Hellyer poignantly raises the key policy question: "Are they really enemies or merely legitimate explorers from afar?" Hellyer's question raises profound importance in understanding the relationship between visiting extraterrestrial civilizations and world peace.

The third policy question arose from the recent decision by President Bush to build a base on the moon. Hellyer believes this is the activation of a plan first launched by Col Corso's mentor, Lt General Arthur Trudeau to build a base from which visiting extraterrestrials could be monitored and possibly targeted as they approach the Earth. Hellyer outlined his opposition to the weaponization of space, something that the liberal government of Canada is currently opposed to. The weaponization of space remains a key policy issue clearly has profound policy issues from the perspective of extraterrestrial visitors to Earth.

Finally, Hellyer declared that the "time has come to lift the veil of secrecy" and to have an "informed debate about a problem that doesn't officially exist." Understanding the evidence concerning the UFO phenomenon is vital to fully preparing citizens around the world for the truth concerning extraterrestrials, despite official denial and secrecy by those "in the loop". He calls for major global initiatives to fully prepare global citizenry for the truth. He endorses a position taken by key exopolitical researchers such as Alfred Webre to prepare for a "Decade of Contact" where humanity is prepared for the truth about extraterrestrial visitors through informed debate and education.

Paul Hellyer is the first senior politician to openly come out and declare the truth about the extraterrestrial presence. He is blazing a trail that many other senior politicians are destined to take. It will be wise if the world's senior politicians quickly learn more about this remarkable Canadian statesman and heed his important advise about data on extraterrestrial visitors and the "profoundly important policy questions that must be addressed."

Note: The Hon Paul Hellyer has been invited to attend the forthcoming "Extraterrestrial Civilizations and World Peace Conference from June 9-11, 2006, on the Big Island of Hawaii.

HONORABLE PAUL T. HELLYER REVIEWS ALFRED WEBRE'S BOOK "EXOPOLITICS":

SOURCE: http://www.bookstream.biz/excerpts/0973766301.pdf

Mr. Hellyer was Minister of National Defense under Canadian Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson; Deputy Prime Minister of Canada under Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau

Alfred Lambremont Webre’s odyssey into the realm of life in the vast Universe surrounding Planet Earth is indeed a fascinating journey if you read it with an open mind. He postulates a Universe that includes many planets sustaining life more advanced than our own – all subject to universal governance based on the rule of law.

Earth, he suggests, is an exception. Rather than being the center of the Universe, as our ancestors believed, we are the black sheep of the interplanetary community. We have been “quarantined” and isolated from the “highly organized, interplanetary, inter-galactic multidimensional Universe society,” presumably because our culture has been strongly influenced by rogue planetary leadership personified in the story of the Garden of Eden.

To end the “quarantine,” Earthlings must advance morally and spiritually, while re-establishing connection with inter-planetary society. Until recently, we didn’t have the technology to do the latter, but increasingly we do. Meanwhile, visits from our extra-planetary neighbours present opportunities for peaceful communication and collaboration.

Webre posits that some UFOs are natural phenomena, while some are top-secret military aircraft, but that others are quite real. He maintains that knowledge of their existence is being suppressed by military intelligence organizations in the five English-speaking countries known as the so-called “Echelon” group – the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

For me, this is the least credible of the author’s assertions. I strongly suspect that the US military holds information it has not revealed, but I very much doubt that it has shared this knowledge with its intelligence partners – certainly not Canada. The US only shares information with other governments when it is in its own best interests to do so.

Webre states that the alleged disinformation campaign about UFOs is due to the close relationship between the military and industry, the socalled “military-industrial complex” that President Dwight David Eisenhower warned us about in his farewell address. They are the chief beneficiaries of the oil economy. Tapping into the knowledge of the Universe would ultimately lead us to higher forms of energy that would be ecologically sustainable, but that would make the oil economy irrelevant.

God-fearing people will be relieved to know that there is nothing in Webre’s thesis, despite the considerable mind-stretch, that denies their fundamental beliefs. If there were, I would not be a party to it. Webre states, “Reunion with Universe civilizations will bring a closer relationship with God. The most advanced scientific reality in all creation is that God is Source.”

To turn us in the direction of re-unification with the rest of creation the author is proposing a “Decade of Contact” – an “era of openness, public hearings, publicly funded research, and education about extraterrestrial reality.” That could be just the antidote the world needs to end its greeddriven, power-centered madness.

Paul Hellyer and the Politics of Exopolitics

By Gord Heath, Nov 5, 2005

   

Paul Hellyer
Former Canadian Minister of Defence

    Paul Hellyer, a former Minister of Defence in the Pearson Government, has announced his belief that UFOs are real and that the US is developing weapons systems for space which are to be used against alien craft entering earth's airspace. He voiced his opinions at the recent "2005 Toronto Exopolitics Symposium". Exopolitics is a new term used to describe the study of the politics of extraterrestrial contact. It is usually discussed in a context which assumes that enough evidence exists from existing UFO reports to conclude that some UFOs are craft that are piloted by beings originating from other planets and solar systems. Hellyer's comments received some coverage in the national media and stirred some interest and reaction from the public, mostly from those who have some interest in UFOs.

    Hellyer's History as Political Nomad

    Paul Hellyer was first elected as a Liberal from Toronto's Davenport riding in 1949. He was, at that time, the youngest MP to serve in Canada's parliament. He served as a parliamentary assistant to the Minister of National Defence and then went on to serve as the Associate Minister of Defence in the cabinet of Prime Minister Louis Saint-Laurent. He later served as Minister of National Defence in Prime Minister Pearson's cabinet in the mid 1960s and served as Minister of Transport in the cabinet of Prime Minister Trudeau. His most notable and controversial achievement was the integration and unification of Canada's army, navy and air forces into a single organization, the Canadian Forces. At the time, unification sparked considerable negative reaction from many members of the armed forces who objected to the manner in which military traditions such as separate and unique uniforms were discarded.

    After resigning from cabinet in a dispute with Trudeau, Hellyer sat as an independent and later formed a political party, the Action Canada Party, before crossing to join the Progressive Conservative Party. He failed in a run for the leadership of the PCs before leaving that party to rejoin the Liberals where he failed to secure a nomination. He later went on to form the Canadian Action Party in 1995.

    In terms of influence, the peak of his political career was probably in his earlier years when he served as a cabinet minister. His political views gravitated towards concerns about the threats to Canada's sovereignty posed by US political and economic influence in Canadian affairs. In recent years he is one of many prominent Canadians who have opposed Canadian support and participation in the US National Missile Defense program (NMD) and supported calls for a ban on weapons in space.

    It is through these contacts that he began to encounter the views of persons who believe that the US is planning space based weapons systems to be deployed against ET controlled vehicles entering earth's atmosphere from space.

   [EDITOR: See:"Missile Defense: It Was Wrong Then and It's Wrong Now" by Paul Hellyer Published on Thursday, May 15, 2003 by the Globe & Mail/Canada
http://www.commondreams.org/views03/0515-10.htm

Instead, Canada should accept the long-standing invitation of Congressman Dennis Kucinich of Ohio to launch a conference to seek approval of an international treaty to ban weapons in space. That would be a positive Canadian contribution toward a more peaceful world.


Paul Hellyer states that his beliefs in ET visitation do not relate back to insider knowledge obtained from his time spent as Minister of National Defence from 1963 to 1967. At that time he was largely consumed by other pressing public policy priorities and paid scant attention to high profile UFO encounters like the Shag Harbour, Nova Scotia incident in October 1967 or the Falcon Lake, Manitoba encounter in May 1967 where Stephen Mickalak received chest burns from a hovering UFO.

    Roswell Writings Change Hellyer's Views

    Hellyer states his recent interest in UFOs was prompted by viewing Peter Jennings TV documentary on the topic. He later read "The Day After Roswell" by Col. Philip J. Corso, who once served as the head of the Foreign Technology Desk at the US Army's Research and Development department. In his book, Corso asserts that parts from a crashed alien vehicle were recovered from the July 1947 incident at Roswell, New Mexico which the US Army Air Force later explained as a weather balloon. Corso states some parts were transferred to a "file cabinet" at the Pentagon where they were used to guide developments in several technologies such as integrated circuits, night vision systems and lasers.

    Author of controversial book, "The Day After Roswell"

    Many UFOlogists dispute conclusions that a UFO crashed at Roswell, New Mexico in 1947. Others do not believe Corso's specific allegations in his book relating to his role in applying ET derived technologies from this alleged crashed UFO to practical recent technological innovations. Stanton Friedman is a nuclear physicist who investigated Roswell and has books about the Roswell crash and MJ-12, the alleged top secret US committee created to study UFOs. Friedman, who now resides in New Brunswick, casts doubts on Corso's claims that he was the central figure responsible for seeding technology derived from wreckage taken from the ET spaceship which (allegedly) crashed at Roswell. In response to those who question how he came to believe the contents of this specific book, Hellyer states that he personally spoke with an unnamed US General who assured him that all of this and more was true.

    Exopolitics Versus the UFO Fundamentalists

    For some UFOlogists, Hellyer's foray into Exopolitics was not welcomed. The very notion of a study of the politics of extraterrestrial contact is hotly contested by many as they feel that UFOlogists must focus on the scientific investigation of UFO phenomena. Some reason that there is insufficient evidence to conclude that some UFOs may be vehicles incorporating technology far beyond those developed by earth civilization.

    The reality is that all of this is mostly a debate happening amongst a very small group of researchers and interested persons that has little measurable impact on the information shared through mass media outlets like television, radio and newspapers.

    There are few celebrities of any sort who want to risk their profile and public following to publicly state their views on the possible importance posed by UFO encounters, especially if some have extraterrestrial origins. Few politicians have been brave enough to face the ridicule posed by suggesting there might be anything worthwhile to gain through the study of UFOs. President Carter and President Reagan both spoke about personal UFO encounters but made few other public statements about the policy implications posed by these events.

    It might be expected that any viewpoint supporting the possible reality of ET visitation to the planet might be welcomed by those UFOlogist's who claim to be open to this possibility. But due to deep divisions between some UFOlogists and persons who advance the study of exopolitics, this has not been the case.

    As an example, Paul Hellyer's statements to the Exopolitics conference in Toronto were mocked and ridiculed by filmmaker Paul Kimball of Redstar Films based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Kimball's views are of some significance as he is one of the few Canadians to have an interest and financial stake in producing documentary films on UFO related topics. His documentaries include "Stanton T. Friedman IS Real" and "Do You Believe in Majic?" He is currently working on film documentaries on cattle mutilations and the ten best UFO cases.

    Kimball Believes Hellyer Should Have Known UFO Secrets

    Paul Kimball
    UFO Documentary Filmmaker

    One of Kimball's posts on his weblog "The Other Side of Truth" (http://redstarfilms.blogspot.com/) was largely focussed on heaping scorn on Hellyer's nomadic political career "Ladies and Gentlemen – Meet the REAL Paul Hellyer". His earlier post on Hellyer "Paul Hellyer – The Big Fish Flops" raised more specific issues relating to Hellyer's statement. Kimball's opinion is that if anyone would know about UFO secrets, it would have been Hellyer:

    "Because if anyone in Canada would have known about the Cosmic Watergate, and UFO secrets, and alien bases, etc. etc., it would have been the Minister of National Defence in the mid 1960s."

    This statement assumes that the Minister of National Defence is privy to all secrets contained within the Department of National Defence. It further assumes that any questions concerning the security implications of UFO incursions into Canadian air space would require a continuing policy review from the Minister of National Defence. What if Canadian policy on the security implications of UFOs was already determined by our participation in NORAD continental air defence, established back in the early 1950s?

    US Policy Was to Debunk UFOs

    There is documentation to suggest that there was considerable concern about the possible security risks posed by UFOs during the early post World War 2 time period. The US Air Force initiated several studies of UFOs to evaluate the potential threat to national security. It was initially thought that the UFOs might be secret weapons produced by Germany or the Soviet Union. It was later determined that the UFOs were not foreign developed weapons systems and one study in the US Air Force concluded some UFOs possibly had an "interplanetary origin". In his UFO books, Major Donald Keyhoe documented the struggle in the US Air Force between those who favoured open sharing and disclosure of UFO information with the public and "the silence group" who feared that the public was not prepared for this information and wanted to keep all unsolved reports secret.

    The CIA sponsored Robertson Panel Report in 1953 appears to have set the policy direction for US government agencies including intelligence and military agencies regarding UFOs. It suggested that the credible UFO reports should be debunked, that only reports of easily explainable occurrences of meteors and such should be publicized, and that the activities of civilian UFO study groups should be monitored. It was concluded that there was no evidence that UFOs posed a specific security threat to the US, but that the reporting of UFOs might trigger the mass hysteria that was observed following the radio broadcast of "The War of the Worlds". The panel felt that the mass media could be used to discredit UFO sightings. It was also concluded that there was no evidence that UFOs were actually advanced vehicles piloted by beings from other planets.

    The official study of UFOs by the US Air Force did continue through Project Blue Book until the 1968 University of Colorado "Condon Committee Report" advised that Blue Book should be shutdown as there was nothing further to be gained from the study of UFOs. But even though Project Blue Book continued through the 1950s to the late 1960s, it was largely ineffectual in conducting serious research into UFOs and its direction was largely to abide by the policy framework established through the Robertson Panel Report.

    The more serious and contentious question is whether some persons connected with the study of UFOs decided to continue studies in a compartmentalized and secret organization and program. Those who support this view refer to documentation suggesting such a group, possibly called MJ-12, has been operating in the US since the late 1940s or early 1950s. A key contention is that the existence of this organization and its activities are hidden behind walls of internal security from any and all elected and publicly accountable officials such as presidents, cabinet members, senators and members of congress. This secrecy is allegedly maintained by threats and intimidation. While some information does leak out, it is countered by the deliberate leakage of "disinformation" which masks the truth behind many seemingly related but false or partially false allegations.

    Some theorists believe that some of the information about these programs is released in a controlled manner to eventually prepare the public for a broader and more open disclosure of the real history of UFO studies.

    What About Canada?

    Did Canada have an active UFO study program in the mid-sixties? Did the Canadian government ever formally establish a policy direction concerning the potential national security implications posed by UFOs?

    While there has certainly been many UFO encounters involving RCAF aircraft and radar installations, there does not seem to exist a paper trail showing the policy direction that guided reaction to these events. The RCAF did perform some study of UFO incidents, but there is not any clear indication of the policy objective that framed this study. It is quite possible that the elected arm of the Canadian government, the PMO and cabinet, have never prepared a policy directive concerning the study of and response to UFO incidents. Perhaps there has never been sufficient pressure to require a government policy response. Perhaps government bureaucracy including National Defence has preferred to set their own internal policy. The media has largely ignored reporting of UFO events since the 1950s and the public is itself fragmented by differing belief systems and focussed on more tangible and immediate priorities.

    In Canada, the study of UFOs was offloaded to the National Research Council in 1968, the year that the US disbanded the USAF "Project Blue Book" study of UFOs. There were few scientists at NRC who harboured any willingness to show interest in the objective study of a "frivolous topic" like UFOs, except for the purposes of finding and locating fallen meteorites. The timing of the offload of UFO study responsibility suggests that Canada was simply following the US lead in its policy towards the study of UFOs.

    Since the mid 1950s, Canada has participated in NORAD which provides security of Canadian and US air space from foreign incursions. The response to any unidentified return that shows up on NORAD radar systems would abide by the policies and regulations established by the joint US and Canadian NORAD command structure. It is therefore quite likely that our response to UFOs detected by the military would abide by NORAD policies which are likely largely developed by US military strategists.

    It is theoretically possible that the US has actually discouraged Canadian government research into UFOs because they might be concerned that the results of such studies might be released to the public or may be obtained by competing foreign governments.

    There Never Was a Project Magnet

    It is difficult to catch Paul Kimball's line of reasoning on Hellyer. Apparently he sees Hellyer's disclosure that as a defence minister, he knew little or nothing about UFOs as proof positive that the Canadian government has never had an interest in UFOs. He might be right that most people in government were at most puzzled by what they heard. But there were certainly some people in the Canadian military that had to be concerned about what was reported by pilots and radar observers in various military encounters with UFOs.

    Kimball goes on to say "There was no super secret Wilbert Smith research project" in his efforts to debunk the notion that the Canadian government ever had any interest in studying UFOs. The project he is referring to is "Project Magnet", a program run by Department of Transport scientist, Wilbert Smith.

    The project was concerned with the idea that the earth's magnetic field might be the force used by the flying saucers for their propulsion. It later led to a small UFO detection station at Shirley Bay near Ottawa, Ontario. Project Magnet was funded by government from 1950 to 1954 and the UFO detection station was publicly funded from 1952 to 1954. Although the project was supposedly secret, the UFO detection station was written about in several newspaper articles. It appears that publicity surrounding the station possibly contributed to the government's decision in 1954 to discontinue funding for the project.

    Flying Saucer Detection Station at Shirley Bay near Ottawa

        This photograph was published in the Toronto Globe and Mail, on the same day as a USAF F-89 disappeared after merging with a UFO on radar in Canadian air space over Lake Superior.

    Paul Kimball goes on to state "There was no secret plan to get an alien spacecraft to land in Alberta". I guess the point here is to disprove any notion that the Canadian military had any interest in the UFO phenomena. Here Kimball must be referring to the article printed in the Ottawa Journal in July 1967, "UFO Landing Site was 13 Year Secret". The article states "The Canadian Government 13 years ago made available the defence research board experimental station at Suffield, Alberta as a landing site for Unidentified Flying Objects, defence minister Paul Hellyer has now disclosed." The article goes on to state:

    "Nothing ever materialized from that top secret project. No extraterrestrial flying objects ever sought to land on that 1000 square mile restricted tract of land over which no aircraft, civilian or military, was allowed to fly without special permission. The idea behind the classified project was that if any UFO tried to make contact with earth it could land at the DRB station without being shot down by defence interceptors."

    CFB Suffield

        This Canadian Forces Base is located northwest of Medicine Hat, Alberta. For decades it was Canada's primary research centre into chemical and biological weapons. It is also alleged to have been designated as a top secret reserved "UFO landing site" back in the early 1950s.

    Yurko Bondarchuk refers to the alleged site in his 1979 book "UFO Sightings, Landings and Abductions – The Documentary Evidence". He revealed that Captain Douglas Caie, Public Information Officer from National Defence Headquarters in Ottawa stated regarding the alleged UFO landing site at Suffield "We have no record of any such program… From the information I have, we never had one."

    According to the 1973 book "Aliens from Space" by Donald Keyhoe, US Air Force intelligence learned of the restricted landing site at Suffield in 1954. According to Keyhoe, the site was established when efforts by the RCAF to "bring down" a UFO failed. The intent was to lure the aliens into landing but there was apparently nothing to indicate the area was reserved for alien machines.

    In the 1950s through to the 1970s, the experimental station at Suffield was Canada's main centre for research into chemical and biological WMDs (weapons of mass destruction). This included the testing of mustard gas and sarin on soldiers and other human test subjects. Suffield was also the primary Canadian test site for biological weapons such as anthrax, plague, ricin and botulinum toxin. It is also alleged that the RCAF has engaged in many pursuits of UFOs with its fighter jets since the 1950s. It is perhaps little wonder that the UFOs would not choose to land at a site controlled by Canadian National Defence which is devoted to chemical and biological weapons research.

    What was the source for this story? Why would the government designate a military base as a "safe landing site" for UFOs?

    AFFA and PONNAR Orbit Earth and Make Contact

    What I have found quite interesting about this, aside from Kimball's denials, is the whole history of Smith as it relates to Canada's UFO studies of that period. While investigating this whole episode of the alleged UFO landing site at Suffield, I was quite surprised to find out that there might be a connection between this "bit of Canadian UFO fantasy" and our favourite UFO/ET proponent, Wilbert Smith. This story goes back to a UFO researcher named Grant Cameron. Through his interest of the alleged alien landing site at Suffield, he engaged Hellyer in a long period of correspondence with the purpose of locating certain information about the site. Grant Cameron wrote Hellyer several times in the 1970s, trying to determine the identity of the top defence department official who had revealed the existence of the secret Suffield "UFO landing site". Hellyer was never able to recall the name of the official, but told Cameron that he had searched his files at National Archives but was unable to locate his UFO file, which apparently contained notes from defence briefings on UFOs.

    The story does not stop there however. Cameron states that in 1978 he interviewed Wilbert Smith's widow and asked her if she remembered anything about the Suffield UFO landing site. In her version of the story, her husband had been making efforts to convince government officials that the aliens existed and that they should make efforts to talk to them face to face, to learn who they were and what they wanted.

    Wilbert Smith

        Canadian radio scientist and prominent "UFO Contactee" ran Project Magnet and UFO Detection Station for the federal government.

    Here the story begins to get very weird. In August 1954, the technology publication "Aviation Week and Space Technology" reported that Dr. Lincoln LaPaz was conducting a study of two "satellites" which had been recently discovered orbiting the earth at 400 miles and 600 miles above the surface. According to the article, the satellites had caused worries in the Pentagon as they were initially believed to be artificial. This was three years before the Soviet Union launched "Sputnik" the first human manufactured artificial satellite into orbit. The story was subsequently covered by several newspapers.

    Some people believed that the two mystery satellites were alien spaceships. One of these people was a Mrs. Frances Swan, who lived in Eliot, Maine. She claimed that beginning in April 1954 she began receiving channelled messages from the commanders of two alien ships orbiting the earth, AFFA who commanded ship M-4 and PONNAR who commanded ship L-11. For some reason or another, AFFA was the main alien contact for Swan and other contactees. Wilbert Smith, who was a strong believer in aliens, maintained contact with Swan and other "AFFA" contactees. He also allegedly tried alternative methods for establishing contact with AFFA on his own or through various intermediaries.

    Back to the story of the Suffield UFO landing site…

    Mrs. Smith told Grant Cameron that Wilbert believed that if the government stopped shooting at UFOs, then he might be able to get spaceship commander AFFA to land for a meeting. Apparently AFFA had given this indication in a contact to Swan. Smith indicates that he approached a top secret committee in government to relay this request and they had agreed to allow AFFA a safe place to land. When Smith relayed this agreement back to AFFA, he was told that AFFA would also require assurances that he would also be free to take off without any interference. According to Cameron, Mrs. Smith told him that the top secret committee would not agree to this, and so the landing never took place.

    As weird as this story is, it is at least partially true. We know that Wilbert Smith was "a UFO contactee" and a "true believer" that some of the UFOs were spaceships flown by aliens. Mr. Smith really did receive government funding for his "Project Magnet" and the "UFO Detection Station" at Shirley's Bay. We know that Paul Hellyer did apparently reveal that Suffield Research Station had been designated as a top secret UFO landing site sometime back in the mid-1950s. His statement revealing this site was apparently made when he attended the official opening of the "UFO Landing Pad" in St. Paul, Alberta, which was a community project for Canada's centennial.

    From Mrs. Smith's telling, the aliens never landed because the Canadian government wouldn't consent to granting the commander permission to freely leave. What Hellyer was told and what was in his notes seems forgotten and lost with his vanished UFO file. The Suffield story seems to at least be partially true and it would be fascinating to know the complete real story behind it.

    From what we know sitting in our stuffy armchairs reading these stories and perhaps getting a good chuckle or two, is that AFFA and PONNAR appear to have left earth orbit, probably not impressed with the diplomacy extended by the Canadian government of that time.

    Present Media Climate Discourages Interest in UFO Study

    It is difficult to assess what impact Hellyer's comments have had on the Canadian public. I have had a few people mention to me that they had heard something about this, but they seemed largely unaware of any details concerning Hellyer's comments.

    The National Post published a column by regular political columnist Andrew Coyne. In his piece, "Holding Editors to Account", Coyne seems amazed by Hellyer's belief in a decades long government conspiracy to withhold secrets about UFOs from the public, and thinks this might mean that Hellyer has lost his marbles. He links Hellyer's "conspiracy views" with those of someone who believes the US government created the Islamist terrorist network that they are now fighting. Coyne proclaims his belief in factual reporting but calls on newspaper editors to be more selective and "exclude the obviously marginal". "There is a time and a place to debate whether the earth goes around the sun or the contrary, but we should have little time to address other matters if we were perpetually revisiting old controversies, or disproving every fantasy." I guess this explains why large media outlets almost never report any UFO unless it can be easily explained as a meteor.

    It is a very rare event for any large media outlet to present any news relating to UFOs and alien visitation with a straight face. Discovery Channel did recently produce a satisfactory summary of the Exopolitics conference in Toronto but they prefaced it with a goofy cartoon UFO landing. Perhaps this was done to assure the audience that they were not intending anyone to take this in any way seriously.

    The same thing happens on CBC Radio anytime they have Chris Rutkowski providing reports from his annual survey of Canadian UFO events. It is always prefaced with yuk- yuk UFO alien jokes. I once heard an interview on "As it Happens" with an Indiana police officer who was witness to a huge triangular UFO that was seen by several officers in adjacent counties. The interviewer could hardly contain her smirking attitude while the officer tried his best to provide cool responses to her demeaning line of questioning. After the interview was concluded she was almost rolling on the floor in giggles as she said, "Pardon me, but I really have to wonder what it is that they put in the water down there!"

    It is hard to believe that such consistent disrespect can be dished out so casually by mass media outlets when it so clearly shows contempt for the views and beliefs of large parts of their reading, listening and viewing audience. The best that audience members can do when this bias and derogatory demeanour is displayed in the media is to complain to these media outlets.

    As long as the present climate of ridicule persists in the large media organizations, this climate will discourage any serious researcher from publishing material on UFOs and will discourage agencies from funding this research.

    Hellyer Believes in Public Role in Government Response to Alien Contact

    Hellyer has stated his belief that elected governments have been largely excluded from information which is held within the bureaucracy about UFOs. He has in fact used his own experience to buttress this argument.

    UFOlogy has not made great strides in finding conclusive, unambiguous evidence for the ETH (Extra-terrestrial hypothesis) or any other theory on the origin for unexplained UFOs. Despite this failure, many UFOlogists have evaluated the evidence and concluded for themselves that the ETH is the most likely explanation for the phenomena. Given the potentially serious implications of this hypothesis, it makes sense to seriously investigate the potential implications of this hypothesis and to seek answers to the following questions:

    Who are the visitors?
    What do they want from us?
    How are our governments reacting to this presence?
    Are government agencies hiding information about UFOs from the public?

    Paul Hellyer is the perhaps the first former senior Canadian government minister to suggest that these questions are important policy questions and that the public has a right to be involved in the development of policy regarding the response of government to possible extra-terrestrial contact events.

    It is the duty of UFOlogists to seek truth and clarity in the reporting of UFO incidents. It is also our duty as citizens to seek the answers to the key questions posed in Exopolitics forums if we are at all open to the possibility that some UFOs may indeed be advanced vehicles fabricated and possibly piloted by beings from extraterrestrial civilizations.

    And while many of the stories circulating in the UFO field are arguably in the category "too good to be true" you never know, you really, really never know…

MSNBC: Former Canadian Defence Minister Hon Paul Hellyer - The Situation with Tucker Carlson' for Dec. 9, 2005

Logo01 MSNBC: Hon. Paul Hellyer - The Situation with Tucker Carlson' for Dec. 9, 2005

OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPT OF MSNBC TELEVISION INTERVIEW:

 

CARLSON:  Still to come, aliens of a different sort.  Are extraterrestrials among us now? And is the White House trying to start a war with them?  Why a former government official says, “Oh, yes. It‘s all true.”  When the situation returns.

CARLSON:  Welcome back.  According to my next guest, the truth is out there.  Actually up there, with our neighbor to the north, Canada.

A former Canadian government official is warning we may be on the verge of intergalactic war, saying, quote, “The Bush administration has finally agreed to let the military build a forward base on the moon, which will put them in a better position to keep track of the comings and goings of visitors from space and to shoot at them if they so decide,” end quote.

Paul Hellyer is a former minister of defense and deputy prime minister of the country of Canada.  He joins us now from Toronto. Mr. Hellyer, thanks a lot for coming on.

PAUL HELLYER, FORMER DEFENSE MINISTER AND DEPUTY PRIME MINISTER,

CANADA:  Not at all, it‘s a pleasure.

CARLSON:  Now, you were the minister of defense of Canada.  When you autopsied that position, I believe, under Prime Minister Lester Pearson, did you come across any classified information that suggested UFO‘s were real?

HELLYER:  No, not really.  We got regular reports that showed that some of them were, in fact, unidentified.  Some of the sightings could not be explained as natural phenomenon, but nothing more than that.

CARLSON:  Well, as you know, there‘s been this debate for years over whether or not they are real.  Most people don‘t think they are real, or most people at least are hesitant to say they believe they are real in public.  What convinced you they do, in fact, exist?

HELLYER:  Well, for the last two or three years, I have been looking at the evidence, and assessing it, much as I guess a judge would.  And trying to determine who was telling the truth and who wasn‘t.  And I finally concluded, especially after reading a book called “The Day After Roswell,” written by Colonel Philip Corso, that unidentified flying objects are, in fact real.  As real as the airplanes flying over your head, and that there has been a monumental cover-up for more than half a century.

This is after, you know, looking at a lot of evidence and trying to discern who was telling the truth and who wasn‘t.  And I have concluded unequivocally that the people, who claim that they have either seen UFO‘s or have seen classified documents about UFO‘s or have seen wreckage from the crash at Roswell, on or about July 4, 1947, are the ones telling the truth.  And consequently, I am basing my policy considerations on that.

CARLSON:  Where did you come across this information that the Bush administration is building a forward base on the moon, and why would they do that?  And why would they keep it from the public?

HELLYER:  Well, to answer your second question first, I don‘t know.

That is the reason I am raising the question, is to see why they are.

CARLSON:  Well how do you—how do you—that‘s an awfully specific claim. I haven‘t read it in the “New York Times.” Doesn‘t mean it‘s not true, doesn‘t mean you‘re wrong, but I am interested to know why you think that.

HELLYER:  Well, because this was forecasted in Colonel Corso‘s book. They were wanting to build a base on the moon, as far back as 1964. And General Arthur Trudeau (ph) -- same name as one of my bosses—was very determined to build a forward base on the moon.  And prepared all of the specifications necessary for it, and the blueprints, and so on.

CARLSON:  Well, is it—pardon me.  I don‘t mean to interrupt you, but doesn‘t this make sense? I mean, if, in fact, there are extraterrestrials and they are buzzing our planet, why wouldn‘t we want to take steps to defend ourselves from them should they turn hostile?

HELLYER:  Well, I think the critical question is whether or not they are hostile.  You see, when they were first—when the crash first occurred, General Nathan Twining (ph) later became the...

CARLSON:  In Roswell?

HELLYER:  Yes, after that crash occurred, he declared that they were enemy aliens.  Now, there‘s no evidence, that I have seen, that would really convince me that they are, in fact, you know enemy.

And what I would like to know is whether that classification of enemy aliens still exists or whether it doesn‘t, and if it exists, what the evidence is on which the United States government bases its conclusions.  I think that‘s tremendously important.

CARLSON:  I think that‘s an entirely fair question.  Now, finally, you laid out these views in September of this year at a speech at the University of Toronto, and according to the news report I have of the speech, your address, quote, “ended with a standing ovation.”

And that implies, I think, that your views are commonplace in Canada. They are a minority view here, distinct minority view.  Do you think most Canadians believe that there is a forward base under construction on the Moon and that aliens are buzzing the earth?

HELLYER:  No, absolutely not.  Most of them are skeptics.  Most of them haven‘t spent much time researching the subject, and so they‘re, I think, the average here would be very similar to the average American. And I am hoping that, maybe, we can persuade the Canadian Senate to hold hearings and listen to some of the 400 witnesses that your Dr. Steven—what‘s his name?  Oh, Greer, Dr. Steven Greer, has compiled, and hear them, and, you know, make up their minds as to whether or not there is a real threat.

CARLSON:  All right.

HELLYER:    And, maybe, this would be just enough to push the American government, the U.S. Congress or Senate, into holding its own hearings, and then getting the United States government finally to come clean and tell us what they are worried about.

CARLSON:  OK.  Canada‘s former minister of defense, Paul Hellyer.  If you are right, history will record you as a visionary.  If you are wrong, well, I‘m glad you came on anyway.  Thank you.

HELLYER:  It‘s a pleasure.

These are just a few of the contenders for the American Dialect Society's 2005 word or phrase of the year.

A brief primer:

Exopolitics is the art of dealing with space aliens.

Tom Cruise inspired the couch phrase for bizarre behavior when he jumped atop Oprah's sofa and proclaimed his love for actress Katie Holmes.

And a whale tail, well, that is the appearance of your underwear over your waistband.

The American Dialect Society will name the word winners at a conference Friday in Albuquerque.

Honors will also be given to the most creative, unnecessary and euphemistic words, as well as those that are likely just a fad (hanging chad) and those that will last (blog).

It's the perfect New Year's event, chock-full of changing times, a glance into the past and predictions of the future.

''Language changes as things change because it adapts to changing realities,'' said Dennis Baron, society member and professor of English and linguistics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. ''Our emphases change.''

Baron favors the term ''roadside bomb'' for the 2005 word of the year. Not funny or popular, but nary a day goes by without a report of carnage created by one of these explosive devices.

''Chick flick'' sticks

These are cutting-edge words, so new that few, if any, have made it into a modern dictionary.

It takes a while, you see.

''Bikini wax'' and ''brain freeze'' finally hit Merriam-Webster's 11th Edition Collegiate Dictionary in 2005.

More recently, ''chick flick'' and ''civil union'' made it, too. As did cybrarian, a person whose job is to find, collect and manage information available on the World Wide Web.

Sometimes terms take on new meanings, and lose old ones. Some become stale in less time than it took to gain prominence.

''Something is cool and then a little while later it's hot, and it's the same thing,'' said Gretchen Buntschuh, former English department head at Sturgis Charter School in Hyannis.

Others stay long past their time. ''Who knew that after Watergate, the ''-gate'' suffix would spawn so many other gates?'' Baron said.

Even the terms for modern inventions hold past lives. Consider computer.

When it came about in 1646, the word had nothing to do with Apple, IBM or Dell. It simply defined a person who computes.

Borrowed from the French, the word modified the Latin computare, which means to count or sum up, according to the Barnhart Concise Dictionary of Etymology.

But by 1946, computer referred to the almighty machines, according to the Web site dictionary.com.

Noah wordster

It's not a new thing, this adding of words.

The first American dictionary was compiled by Noah Webster in 1806. Several publications followed, including the 1828 ''American Dictionary of the English Language,'' with more than 70,000 entries.

Merriam-Webster's latest dictionary now holds more than 476,000 entries and 700,000 definitions.

Webster's later work was the first to include distinctively American terms, including as skunk and chowder.

Those words stuck. His spelling suggestions for tongue (tung) and women (wimmen), did not, according to Merriam-Webster. ''There have been lots of words that we have lost,'' Baron said.

The Sturgis library in Barnstable has a copy of Worcester's Dictionary published in 1866, a rival of Webster's. It holds many words long forgotten, and proof that words morphed through the ages.

For instance, the abbreviation ''AAM'' used to stand for a Dutch liquid measure. Today, Webster's says it means air-to-air missile.

In 1866 people were concerned about proper speaking, as illustrated by the word acyrology, a noun for careless or improper diction. Not so in 2001. A Webster's dictionary from that year has no definition for the term.

The passing of nizy

Some perfectly good words have fallen out of favor.

Take, for instance, abature, the term that defines spires of grass trodden down by a stag in passing. Perhaps it's just no longer needed in this modern world, but there might be some cowboys out there itching for a nifty term for broken grass.

And who couldn't use nizy? It's the old-world term for a dunce or simpleton.

The same goes for irp, the old term for a fantastic grimace.

Both old and new dictionaries have smirk and smite, but only the 2001 one includes snafu, a term best looked up at home.

Not surprisingly, Worcester's dictionary has web and webby, even web eye (occluded vision), but no Web page, Web site or World Wide Web.

Vicky Uminowicv, manager of Titcomb's Book Shop in East Sandwich, prefers old spelling books when looking for keys to the past. In an 1815 spelling book religious words were not uncommon.

Smite and sinner were popular. ''It's a word everybody knows, but it's not something you learn early on,'' she said of smite.

And sinner: ''How often do you see that in a school spelling book?''

PRESS RELEASE

Exopolitics Toronto and the Canadian Disclosure Initiative present an exclusive Press Conference on UFO Witness Testimony. A press screening of authentic military, corporate and government witness testimony will present compelling evidence attesting to the reality of an extraterrestrial presence and the 58 year old military/government cover-up of this issue. This historic press event will feature Dr. Steven M. Greer Director of the Disclosure Project and the Hon. Paul Hellyer former Minister of National Defense in Canada.

Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) May 3, 2006 -– A major press conference will be held in Toronto to present military and corporate witness testimony by ranking senior officials about the presence, authenticity and geo-political policy implications of unidentified aerial phenomenon of non-Earth origin.

Exopolitics Toronto will screen a professionally produced Witness Testimony digital video film created by the Disclosure Project under the direction of Dr. Steven Greer on the theatre screen at the prestigious De La Salle Oaklands College in Toronto Ontario on Tuesday May 9th at 7 p.m.

The goal of this press conference is to present witness testimony by Brigadier Generals, Naval Photographic experts, military officers, ICBM Launch Commanders, an FAA Crash Site Senior Administrator, NORAD air traffic controllers and pilots that confirms authentic, first-hand encounters with intelligently controlled unidentified aerial craft of non-Earth origin.

Statements and remarks by Dr. Greer and the Hon. Paul Hellyer about the testimony’s policy and geo-political implications will follow the film’s screening. An open question period for the press will follow remarks by Dr. Greer and Mr. Hellyer.

For the first time in Canada, this provocative and unambiguous witness testimony provides all journalists an opportunity to study irrefutable, documented and shockingly compelling witness testimony about the presence of unidentified aerial phenomenon of non-Earth origin and the associated 58 year cover-up by military and government officials.

In fact, each witness has stated they are willing to testify, under oath, before Congress or Parliament as to the truth of their testimony; a bold personal and legal precedent set by these courageous military, government and corporate officials.

Understandably mainstream media has always been reluctant to approach this issue; dismissing it because of inconclusive evidence or skepticism. This is no longer the case.

Press now will have the right to unreservedly examine superior quality information assembled by researchers and experts in this field; information only accessible in the past to officials with the highest levels of security clearance.

This category of evidential material has been withheld from the press for over 58 years. Exopolitics Toronto’s disclosure press conference rectifies this situation; an event no journalist will want to overlook due to the gravity of the witness’ disclosures.

Abundant evidence and witness testimony also exists that establishes the existence of related covert projects that have developed advanced energy and propulsion technologies that could replace the need for oil, gas, coal and nuclear power.

These rogue, so-called "black" projects have hidden these energy breakthroughs from the public, to the detriment of national security, the environment and the economy, so that elite special interests can maintain the current status quo.

Press will also be able to view copies of original government documents and national security memoranda that confirm a co-ordinated involvement with and a high level of interest in global UFO activity by military and national security agencies.

Exopolitics Toronto will have on hand copies of original secret documents of NORAD Status and Events obtained under the Access to Information and Privacy Act – National Defense Headquarters showing the scrambling of two NORAD CF-18 jets in 2001 to intercept three unidentified craft tracked by an MEDEVAC LR-35 out of Anchorage Alaska.

Also on the agenda will be a special announcement concerning the documentary Dan Aykroyd Unplugged on UFOs. This documentary by Canadian David Sereda will be released in late May.

SACRED ENCOUNTERS: A conversation with Janet Colli, PhD
Sacred Encounters is the culmination of 13 years of research bringing together the psychology of close encounters, spiritual experience, and the ultimate human experience enlightenment.

Eastern mystics have sought enlightenment for millennia, enshrining it in ancient lineages. Yet few Westerners realize that these same gurus have long been communicating with so-called alien beings. Moreover, alien beings appear to be facilitating Unity consciousness on our planet. Startling evidence establishing this connection will be revealed relating to Sufi, Hindu and Tibetan Buddhist traditions.

Already the current surge of subtle realm encounters has unveiled the hidden dimension that surrounds us the realm of angels and aliens. Yet while UFOlogy fails to address the spiritual significance of such experiences, Sacred Encounters explores their human potential. Dr. Colli believes that those among us who sense the subtle realms herald a critical stage in human evolution. Subtle realm experiences are ushering in an era when close encounters, non-local communication and travel will be un-exceptional. Sacred Encounters prepares the modern world for our next evolutionary leap.

Sacred Encounters presents psychological research and case studies such as “Hayley,” who demonstrates the transition from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to interspecies communicator. Trace her developmental process as she learns to transform her terror. Discover the pivotal role so-called aliens are playing in the transformation of human consciousness from those who are living it, firsthand.

"Possibly the most important exopolitical understanding of all time"

Janet Colli, Ph.D., author of "Sacred Encounters - Spiritual Awakenings during Close Encounters"

"These beings are in different states of consciousness than we are, than the normal ordinary subject object consciousness that we're in on this planet.  When you look out into the room you see people, tables, chairs.  You see what you term separate objects.  We perceive ourselves as separate from what we perceive.  And unity consciousness, you perceive the unity first, and then the distinctions secondarily.  And so this is studied in consciousness research and in transpersonal psychology and the different states of consciousness.  The higher states of consciousness are what I believe that these beings are in.  So if you're looking at inter-species communication, you're going to have to communicate with these beings on their own terms.  And people like Joy (experiencer), they very much convey that.  You're going to have to enter their state of consciousness or their reality in order to really communicate with them.  So when I hear people talk about trying to initiate diplomatic relationships with these beings, well I say you're gonna have to look at this in terms of states of consciousness.  Because I guarantee they're not gonna sit around a conference table (laughter) with us with a note pad and pen in hand.  They don't operate like that.  You're gonna have to look at it in terms of states of consciousness... It is a matter of evolution and it's a matter of us developing our consciousness and that's what needs to happen on our planet."  -

THE NEW HUMANS

5th Root race, Indigos, China’s Super Psychics & Star Children.

A human upgrade program orchestrated by extraterrestrial contact; the evidence and implications.

by Mary Rodwell, RN © 2005
Principal of the Australian Close Encounter Resource Network, ACERN

‘A new race of human beings has emerged. Whilst superficially they are undistinguishable however, they are the part of the next wave of the bringers of light, to assist humanity with the awakening of terrestrial consciousness. Human beings are awakening to their innate connection to the Universe. This is the primary role for all the NEW CHILDREN, coming to planet earth’ — Tracey Taylor, experiencer (2000)

INTRODUCTION

A seven-year old boy called Boriska from the Volgograd region began to tell his family of his life on Mars, its inhabitants and civilisation. He said he knew of Earth and Lemuria in very specific detail. He possessed profound knowledge and a high intellect (Pravda, Sept 2004, Russia).

Boriska displayed signs of extraordinary behaviour. At two weeks of age he was able to raise his head, spoke his first word at four months and as a one-year-old, Boriska could read the large print of a newspaper.

With precision and clarity, he recounted his knowledge of Mars, planetary systems and their inhabitants. He spoke about the gifted kids which he referred to as ‘indigos’ and of their essential role in assisting humanity during the anticipated Earth Changes.

Is humanity changing as a species?
The new kids on the block: A global phenomenon.

Renowned prophet and healer Edgar Cayce (1877-1945) not only spoke of a new humanity and referred to it as the 5th Root race but he also predicted that it would appear in the years 1998 to 2010.

Metaphysicians and other gurus also share the belief and the anticipation of this recent emergence of the new type of human they call Indigos. They are also referred to as Children of the New Millennium, Crystal Children, Children of Light, Golden Children, to mention a few.

The ufology community is conducting research into the extraterrestrial phenomenon experienced by children. Their explorations thus far have produced such terms as the New Humans or, more commonly, Star Children.

The profiles of the Indigo children share the same attributes or are strikingly similar. They are highly intelligent, creative, psychic, telepathic and posses healing and clairvoyant abilities.

The Indigo children also share an inherent capacity to articulately express knowledge and awareness of deep spiritual concepts, historical, anthropological and scientific data, far beyond the capacity of even the most learned scholars, regardless of their age, level of cognitive development, education and numerous other pertinent factors.

This confronting evidence has even captured the attention and interest of the Chinese government who are researching children who possess ‘exceptional human functioning’ (EHF), more commonly referred to as ‘China’s Super Psychics’.

Unfortunately, this research also suggests that these children are so different that they are often misunderstood and described as suffering from ADD (attention deficit disorder).

In this article we will explore the extraordinary qualities and states of consciousness demonstrated by the Indigo children and the inference of the emerging New Humans.

Despite the plethora of information and supporting evidence, this phenomenon still manages to defy our logic and challenges our beliefs and yet it is scientifically supported.

Everything seems to suggest that humanity is on the verge of an evolutionary quantum leap. If we accept this premise, is it not plausible that the phenomenon related to extraterrestrial experience is equally valid and could offer a reasonable explanation for these developments?

Metaphysicians who speak about the emerging New Humans have professional, psychological and medical science backgrounds. Doreen Virtue, (The Crystal Children) has a PhD, and an MA and BA degree in Counselling Psychology. The publication The Indigo Children (1999) by Lee Carroll and Jan Tober took information from psychologists and therapists. The research in China is sponsored by the government and suggests that the phenomenon is taken seriously. Ufology researchers, too, have credible science, medical and psychological backgrounds.

If we are changing as a species, ufology offers a reasonable explanation. Scientific, biological and anthropological anomalies certainly suggest some form of intervention in the evolution of Homo sapiens. The missing link in our evolutionary tree certainly indicates a primary intervention in our genetic make-up. If this is the case, then the New Humans may well have been orchestrated in a similar way with genetic upgrades in our DNA.  But the present upgrade is so radical that it appears like an evolutionary jump start, hence the name the New Humans.

If humanity is experiencing a quantum leap in its evolution, why is it happening now? Star Children believe they are here to ‘guide the awakening of terrestrial consciousness’ (Tracey Taylor). But how will this be achieved?

New scientific research could provide us with some of those answers and may qualify what the Star Children seem to understand, such as their role in the awakening of human consciousness. It may also explain why our connections to extraterrestrials could be far more intimate than we have previously suspected, as well as why they are currently so interested in us.

Extraterrestrial contact and genetic manipulation?

UFOs and their appearance in our airspace have been systematically ridiculed as pure nonsense by governments for years. This has been an effective strategy, despite the evidence that one in ten people see such craft. Ridicule and disinformation has meant that most people will hesitate to speak of what they have seen, let alone admit they had any interactions with such craft. Evidence in the form of photographs, hours of video footage and credible testimony from airline pilots and military personnel seems to mean nothing. Even the radar sightings which confirm this reality are hidden from public view.

A medical practitioner, Dr Stephen Greer, supports a disclosure program and owns videotape of hundreds of hours of testimony from high ranking military personal. They all confirm that UFOs are real and that there is a systemic and deliberate cover up by government agencies. Retired American Army and NATO Command Sergeant-Major Robert Dean in the 1960s and 70s guarded COSMIC-classified files which showed that government agencies were fully aware that extraterrestrials and UFOs regularly penetrated our airspace.

Compelling as this is, the evidence of such craft in our skies is really a very small part of this phenomenon. Surely we have to ask who is controlling these craft and why are they here? Robert Dean believes that we are very closely connected to aliens, both spiritually and physically, and suggests that they are responsible for the Star Child phenomenon. The development of a new humanity called Homo Noeticus is a term coined by John White who studied parapsychology and noetics (the investigation of consciousness). Many well-known researchers such as English author and UFO investigator Jenny Randles agree. She wrote about this in Star Children: The True Story of Alien Offspring Among Us.

It has been shown that contact experience is an inter-generational one and that such children appear to be more intelligent, exhibit extraordinary psychic and intuitive abilities and have knowledge that they have not consciously learnt. Ufology research shows that consistent genetic lines play an important factor in this phenomenon.

Podiatry surgeon, Dr Roger Leir, is renowned in ufology for his pioneering surgery removing alleged alien implants and his autobiographical book The Aliens and the Scalpel. Dr Leir included the phenomenon of Star Children in his research. He writes that ‘I believe that any mother that looks at her recently born child, in comparison with children born twenty years ago, will testify that there is a tremendous difference. Some look upon the differences in the New Humans and say they have to do with better prenatal care etc. In my opinion this supposition is nonsense AND IN LIGHT OF MY MORE RECENT STUDIES AND EXPOSURE TO THE ABDUCTION PHENOMENON, I HAVE COME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT THE RAPID ADVANCEMENT OF OUR HUMAN SPECIES IS DUE TO ALIEN INTERVENTION IN OUR BODIES AND MINDS’.

Dr Leir has based his statement not only on research into alien implants but from his observations of children. Comparing today’s statistics on the developmental stages in young children to forty years ago (when such records and studies began) he discovered that the level of higher psychological functioning in some cases was increased by as much as much as 80%. The question is, how could this happen? Dr Leir: ‘I suggest that the answer involves alien manipulation of human genetics’ (The Aliens and the Scalpel, p.192).

Recent genetic research could qualify this starling revelation. There are unexplainable anomalies in our genetic history and in 2003 it was discovered that 223 genes do not have the required predecessors on our geonomic evolutionary tree. These extra genes are completely missing in the invertebrate phrase. Therefore scientists can only explain their presence as recent in evolutionary time scale, and comment that this was not through gradual evolution, vertically on the tree of life, but horizontally as a ‘side ways insertion of genetic material’. Significantly these 223 genes are two-thirds the difference between the chimpanzee and Homo sapiens and include important psychological and psychiatric functions.  How did humanity acquire such enigmatic genes? Dr Leir and other researchers believe the answer may well be extraterrestrial genetic intervention!

Dr Richard Boylan, an American behavioural scientist, anthropologist and clinical hypnotherapist, has studied Star Children phenomenon and their connection to close encounter experience. He offers a precise profile of the New Humans and our intimate connection to extraterrestrials, or Star Visitors as he calls them. Dr Boylan is secretary of ACCET (the Academy of Clinical Close Encounter Therapists) in the USA, a professional body that encourages medical and psychological professions to be involved in this phenomenon. Boylan is convinced that Star Children are a reality and has created an organisation to support and educate families with these children. As president of the Star Kids Project (SKP) he organises workshops for Star Kids to help them and their parents cope with their extra psychic and intuitive abilities. He explains that the Star Child maybe defined as a child of both human and extraterrestrial origin. The ET contribution to the child’s make-up may come from genetic engineering, from biomedical technology and from telepathic consciousness linking. Star Kids are psychically and metaphysically changed as a result of their own contacts with the ‘visitors’ or ETs modifying their parent’s reproductive DNA.’ He also believes that there is a link to what we now label Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), a syndrome which almost magically appeared about 15-20 years ago when more of these children began to be recognised.

Dr Boylan and Doreen Virtue believe that these children are often misdiagnosed with syndromes as questionable as ADD. One reason Dr Boylan suggests is that ‘these kids are just crushingly bored with the slow, pedestrian way they are being educated’ and that is why they often misbehave. Doreen Virtue suggests that Indigo and Crystal children can be also diagnosed as autistic or having Asperger’s syndrome. More research is warranted to explore such possibilities.

There are numerous accounts where the contactee or experiencer recalls details of their genetic material being harvested. Dr John Mack, former Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School wrote about the subject of genetic material being taken in his book Abduction. I have covered this important fact in my book Awakening, in the chapter on missing pregnancies. Many of my clients, both male and female, recall experiences when this procedure occurred. Some women also believe that their genetic material has been taken and altered in some way prior to their pregnancy. They say they knew the child was different or special because of this. What I found astonishing was that many of these children seemed to have an awareness that they were different.  A letter to ACERN states:
‘Yes I have always believed I was from elsewhere, and, like I said, I used to speak and write in a strange language in private. Sometimes, even in front of my mum, I used to cry because I felt so different. I would tell her not to touch me, as it was dangerous, and I am not yours. I am one of them. When the greys used to leave, I would get upset and believe they had left me behind, which made me angry and upset. I have memories of planets with golden buildings’ — James Basil (UK).

What are these differences, apart from higher physical and psychological functioning? Generally they are enhanced psychic and intuitive abilities, with an awareness of universal knowledge and even their true genetic origins. ‘I am not yours’ implies that some Star Children are aware they are connected in some way to the extraterrestrial beings who visit them.

Star Child qualities (see Star Child questionnaire at www.acern.com.au)
Highly intelligent.
Often very creative.
Developmentally advanced in reading walking, talking, etc.
Psychic/intuitive abilities.
Multi-dimensionally awareness; they perceive a broader range of reality.
Telepathic abilities.
They sense and feel energies from people or other living things (aura reading).
Telekinesis, etc. Moving objects with their mind energy and thought.
Awareness of scientific, historical, anthropological and spiritual knowledge not consciously learnt. Sometimes called ‘knowledge bombs’.
Awareness of past lives.
Extremely empathic to all creatures, not just humans but animals and plants.
They can communicate with the unseen world, spirits and angels.
Multi-dimensional healing abilities.
Manifest unusual artwork, languages and scripts.
They experience dreams where they are being taught how to use their high sense abilities on space craft.
Dual consciousness; feeling part human and part extraterrestrial.
Have a sense of mission or higher purpose.

From a letter (USA):‘I started walking at 8 months, talking in sentences by 10 months, and how to read at 2 years; no one taught me.  I had friends who walked through walls, became invisible, and we spoke telepathically. I desperately wanted to go home.’

David from Perth, Western Australia (now in his late twenties) said about his childhood psychic and telepathic abilities: ‘I would have telepathic conversations with my sister until she told me to stop being lazy and start talking.’

Some of the older Star Children are able to explain their abilities and ET connections more precisely. Ann Andrews, author of Abducted, wrote about her family’s extraterrestrial contacts. They live in England and have had lifelong interactions with ETs. Jason, her youngest son, exhibits many of these higher senses, regularly astral travels and even heals individuals in this dream state.

Jason told his mother how the Star Child profile fitted him. Jason, like many other Star Children, complains about the bulkiness of his human body, saying how limited it is. He was tight lipped about his experiences for a long time because he said it was hard to trust anyone because you never know who they are working for. He was very serious when he asked Ann if I thought it was very strange that after hundreds of years of slow progress we had suddenly come on in leaps and bounds in just fifty years. According to Jason, ‘they’ (including himself) gave us the relevant knowledge. They showed us how to split the atom and harness nuclear power so that we might finally meet them as equals. However, he says angrily that we have turned all this knowledge into power over others less fortunate than ourselves, for example with atomic weapons. But when asked about genetic engineering, Jason said ‘it is the ETs who choose the parents’. The children are genetically altered before they are born. ‘They are given extraterrestrial DNA.’

Again it appears that many of the children know about their mixed human and ET gene pool. This was demonstrated to me quite graphically when a confused young mother told me about her ten-year-old son. She said that whilst out walking with him one day, her son very casually told her the actual percentage of ET genes in every person they passed!

The extraterrestrial education program, telepathic communication and more.

Five-year-old Aiden from Western Australia says ‘I don’t mind going through the walls, and they teach me more on the ships than I learn at school. They come through walls, float not walk, become invisible, but are still around!’ His mother writes, ‘This astounds me. He is very blasé about it and says he will introduce them to me one day! Aiden knows what I am thinking, finishes my sentences for me, and feels pain when I do’ (from Awakening, 2002).

Star Children can be aware of extraterrestrial educational programs when information is downloaded on a subconscious or super-conscious level. Jena is an eight-year-old girl in Perth who described this process as ‘knowledge bombs’ in her head, which sometimes hurt. They can have strange dreams where they know they are on-board spacecraft. They are taught to use their higher sense abilities and they know when they have done well at such tests.

Whitley Strieber, experiencer and author of The Secret School, also experienced such lessons on spacecraft. This testimony certainly suggests that the New Humans are not only upgraded physically and psychologically, but are also taught to operate on a broader multi-dimensional frequency which helps them access information and knowledge not available to others.

Tracey Taylor, who intuitively draws complex artwork and symbols related to her ET experiences, wrote ‘As for my own contact experiences, I have become very compassionate towards ET beings, there is much that humans can learn and benefit by interacting with them. Initially I didn’t know what was going on or why, but there has always been an equal exchange. I helped them to achieve their genetic goals and, in return, developed my healing and psychic abilities, plus my understanding of life on earth.’

‘Star children are born with greater wisdom and awareness, and are also gifted creatively. They have a great feeling of being connected to nature and all that exists. They are the bringers of the new, the bringers of light, they are here to guide the awakening of terrestrial consciousness.’ So, if the new humanity is already here, whatever we choose to call them, how is this awakening of terrestrial consciousness orchestrated? The answer may well be contained in the creative expressions and data connected to contact experience.

Breaking down the barriers. The limits of traditional ufology research.

Traditional ufology attempts to convince the general public of UFO reality with research focused primarily on UFO sightings and other such scientific data. Although this approach is important, I believe it is far too limited a perspective for such a complex phenomenon. Some ufologists still exhibit ambivalence towards the abduction or contact phenomenon. This is despite the many thousands of credible people and families who experience such a reality, and tangible data such as unusual marks the body, missing time and implants, which are the anomalies that can verify this reality. It seems that no matter how profound the evidence, some will still argue that it is far too insubstantial to be taken seriously. Likewise, they ignore any mixture of spiritual or metaphysical interpretations, or psychological and emotional evidence, despite the degree to which these experiences can dramatically change an individual’s personal paradigm. Such information may just convince sceptical researchers that the experiencer is psychologically impaired. This is especially true of any information that experiencers receive telepathically or express in other ways.

I disagree totally with such a limited perspective and believe that if we are to understand contact more fully we have to be receptive to any physical, emotional, psychological or spiritual data that is linked to this phenomenon.

‘Wisdom is knowing how little we know’ — Socrates.

ACERN provides professional support for experiencers. Since 1996 I have received volumes of data and personal testimony that have convinced me of contact reality.  But I was particularly intrigued to find that, despite the enormous fear some people experienced (and this is by no means standard), many were more traumatised by isolation and judgement than their experiences. What I discovered was that such experiences were eventually life changing and transformational.

Are these experiences transformational because such individuals are exposed to a broader spectrum of reality or is it more than that?

I found that individuals who received support regained their equilibrium and accepted a broader frame of reality, which obviously changed their perspectives in many ways, both psychologically and spiritually. This integration meant that they now became more peaceful and open to their contact experiences. But I also felt it was their new openness to the extraordinary data they received which made their changes so profound.

Although such extraordinary data is treated with ambivalence, if not disinterest, by some researchers, it is common knowledge that creativity and artistic expression is one way that human beings express human experience. There is no doubt that contact experience can inspire some individuals to draw the extraterrestrial life forms they interact with, and that many of them look identical, which I believe is further testament to this reality. Likewise, they may draw unusual landscapes of planets, with which they can have a deep emotional connection. The landscapes may sometimes be strikingly similar, as are some of the artwork, symbols and written scripts. Sometimes they vocalise strange languages without conscious thought, and articulate them more fluidly than their normal human language.

In researching these matters we need to recognise our own limits and that we are unaware of what we don’t know.  I felt that, no matter how unusual or challenging this material was, if it is part of the contact experience then we cannot afford to ignore it.

Researching a broader paradigm requires an open mind, and by that I mean being open to all data. Thorough researcher seeks to reconcile this data with science fact as much as possible. It is always profound and exciting for me when conventional science comes to the rescue and offers a possible explanation. But what is even more fascinating is when the scientific explanations are so similar to what experiencers themselves have intuitively understood.

Expressions of ET contact: a visual communication and healing blueprint?

The strange expressions of contact; stunning images, symbols, drawings of strange planets, languages and unusual scripts is a fascinating enigma. I initially collated such data so experiencers could compare notes. I found that, when shared with other experiencers, the material was extraordinarily helpful in assisting them to honour and validate their own contact.

The ACERN video Expressions of ET Contact: A Visual Blueprint? was an attempt to share this information with the ufology community and experiencers. We discovered that our lack of expertise in film making did not detract from the material or the stories. I am certain that the two film awards presented at the International UFO Congress in the USA came from the impact of these images, because they seemed to connect with individuals at some deep level, whether they were experiencers or not!  The 2004 sequel video Expressions of ET Contact: A Communication and Healing Blueprint? was similar but explored the subject from a more global perspective. Again, the combination of languages, art, scripts and personal stories touched a deep chord with people, creating strong emotional reactions and resonance.

The average experiencer believes such expressions are contact communications, containing complex holographic data which helps us to connect with who and what we are. Energetic signatures, perhaps, containing blocks of coding, like holographic blueprints, which we absorb on many levels.

‘It should be born in mind that the nature of extraterrestrial communications is that, in a majority of instances, star visitors communicate with humans by telepathic transfer of mental images and concepts, rather than by words and speech’ — Marie.

In his video review column, Duncan Roads, editor of Nexus magazine wrote: ‘These Expressions of ET Contact videos are two of the most amazing documentaries you will ever watch. I don’t count myself as being a “sensitive” person at all, but I can assure you that I felt things “shifting inside of me” as I watched the videos.  In fact, at least 15 minutes of one video that I watched I don’t remember a thing about! I am sure viewers will also be surprised at the large number and variety of different life-forms visiting and interacting with us. It becomes clear that as contacts between “us” and “them” progresses, more and more information is being transmitted. Amongst the many people featured by Mary Rodwell in these documentaries, most are currently of the opinion that there are many life forms “out there” that are trying to assist humanity — now, more than ever. This assistance can take many forms; however, it is obvious that most of the assistance is via information packets transmitted to us.’

Roads continues: ‘Yet obviously it is still early days in the “getting to know you” process, so a lot of the information relayed to humans is still very basic, i.e., what “they” look like, what “they” are like and how our “reality” is but one of zillions of valid but different realities. The interviews are most interesting and compelling. And the artwork “does things to you” when you look at it. The paintings of the ETs or aliens (“beings” is probably a better word) are just riveting.  One gets the “feeling” of what the being is “like” just by looking at these paintings — a result of the extra information packets transmitted by the artist, perhaps? … These videos are more in the category of “spiritual awakening”, but this is a result of the content and (probably) not the intention of the producers.’ — Duncan Roads (video review, Nexus, Aug-Sept 2004, p.78).

Communication and reprogramming of our DNA, by language, and frequencies?

Are telepathic transfer of mental images and concepts communication from aliens. SETI (the official search for extraterrestrial intelligence) still argues that they have not received any anomalous radio signals to suggest extraterrestrial life exists. Whether this is the truth or not, that is their official line. But perhaps extraterrestrials would find radio transmissions a very primitive way to communicate. If we listen to experiencers, they say it is more likely to happen through multi-dimensional levels of human consciousness.

‘This communication happens because everything is made up of the same matter resonating at different harmonics, so that the ETs are able to communicate with us, directing thought on subatomic levels, and so activate subconscious interaction. This is interpreted by the conscious mind as a simplified form of communication, such as symbology. Symbols are meant to communicate the nature of the macrocosm.’ — T.T., experiencer (WA).

There is no doubt that such expressions although not yet consciously quantifiable, certainly connect to a deep resonance within people, in the same way as crop circles do. Interestingly, some of the crop circle symbols are actually contained within some of the symbols the experiencers create and it’s possible both phenomena may well be connected. Certainly we know that by viewing or standing in the crop circles many people feel something, as they also do with viewing the videos. Duncan Roads admits that, although he believes he is not particularly sensitive, he also felt something by seeing these images.

In the eastern states of Australia, a male hypnotherapist told me he felt that one particular symbol had affected his third eye centre, feeling a strange buzzing (interestingly this is the spot in the middle of the forehead through which some psychic abilities supposedly manifest). This certainly suggests that these expressions act as a trigger or catalyst for something within us. Some experiencers believe this data has frequencies which affect us energetically on a subconscious level, acting like a holographic program.

Is there a scientific basis to support the hypotheses that such communications or expressions can actually affect or talk to us, even to our DNA?

New Russian research offers support for such a possibility, which means that reliable scientific investigations are now actually beginning to explain what experiencers have intuitively known all along.

Some recent Russian DNA discoveries documented by Grazyna Fosar and Franz Bludorf in their book Vernetzte Intelligenz have been summarised by Baerbel. ‘The human DNA is a biological Internet’ with evidence that DNA can be ‘influenced and reprogrammed by words and frequencies.’ This suggests that ‘our DNA is not only responsible for the construction of our body, but also serves as data storage and communication.’ The Russian scientists and linguists have found that the genetic code ‘follows the same rules as all our human languages.’ In effect, human language did not appear coincidentally but is a reflection of our DNA.

The Russian researchers believe that ‘Living chromosomes function just like a holographic computer using endogenous DNA laser radiation. This means that they managed to modulate certain frequency patterns (sound) onto a laser-like ray which influence DNA frequency and thus the genetic information itself. Since the basic structure of DNA-alkaline pairs and language is of the same structure, no DNA decoding is necessary. One can simply use words and sentences of the human language! This, too, was experimentally proven!’ Of course the frequency has to be correct. (I recommend that the article be read in full.) But for the purposes of this article, the Russian research shows how science now can demonstrate a way to reprogram DNA through language and frequencies.

Experiencers who manifest unusual languages, such as Rochelle (see the video Expressions of ET Contact: A Communication and Healing Blueprint?) call these ‘soul languages’. Rochelle vocalises them when doing energy work and healing.  Healing with sound and frequencies takes on a new meaning in this context. It could mean that Rochelle and others like her may well intuitively be able to change or reprogram DNA though such frequencies while healing. We already know that our subconscious is affected by subliminal frequencies and hypnosis, and the Russian research may have given us a scientific explanation why such techniques work so well. The question is whether the specific frequencies of these languages are designed to affect or reprogram our human DNA? This may well give us grounds for reviewing ancient texts in regards to our origins.

This bible quote may be more than just symbolic rhetoric. In the Book of John (chapter 1: verse 1) it is written: ‘In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God’ and verse 14 states: ‘And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt amongst us’.

The Russian DNA research article coincidentally mentions the changes in our children in terms of group consciousness. They comment that ‘if humans with full individuality would regain group consciousness they would have a godlike power to create, alter and shape things on Earth and humanity is collectively moving towards a group consciousness of a new kind.’ They state that ‘fifty percent of children will become a problem as soon as they go to school, since the system lumps everyone together and demands adjustment. But the individuality of today’s children is so strong that they refuse this adjustment and resist giving up their idiosyncrasies. … At the same time more and more clairvoyant children are being born. Something in those children is striving more towards group consciousness of a new kind and it can no longer be suppressed.’

Are the Russian researchers in fact referring to what is now called the ADD (attention deficit disorder) child? Unfortunately, because there is no funded global research it’s hard to gain accurate statistics. But, if the process of labelling children as ADD is an indicator of this phenomenon, then we are indeed evolving at an astounding rate.

The global perspective and more pieces fit the puzzle: Science, anthropology, theology, archaeology and the kids.

This short article entitled ‘Learning to communicate with extraterrestrials: young children in India-China Himalaya use strange sign language’ appeared on the website of India Daily (29 Jan 2005) by a staff reporter:

‘In the deep region of Himalayas, people are reporting strange behaviours in children. The children are using sign languages which are unknown to their families and anyone around. Many of the children draw pictures of triangular objects flying in the sky. Many of them do not know what they saw and how they learnt these sign languages. Some in the region of Aksai Chin believe that these children regularly communicate with the extraterrestrials who are only visible to these children and communicate via telepathy. The children learn the sign language to communicate back to these beings. According to UFO research materials, some Mexican children also manifest similar behaviour, when many in the area reported for a long time UFO sightings. … According to some teachers in the schools in that area, young children are extra agile and extra talented these days. Their problem solving skills have increased and they are much more disciplined. They continually use a strange sign language among themselves. However they cannot teach this language to adults! The locals in the area believe UFOs have been visiting the area for thousands of years. It stopped for a while and now it has started again.’ (See www.indiadaily.com)

Families have contacted me from all over the globe, not only from Australia, Europe, North and South America, but Asia and Russia, and all describe children advanced from the norm in psychological and physical development and with exceptional psychic abilities.

In Mexico City these same New Humans have begun to emerge, and it is said that over 1000 children are able to ‘see’ with various parts of their bodies. In some countries, government agencies interested in such children are actively researching the phenomenon. China has a program for investigating children with similar abilities, which is taken very seriously by the Chinese Government in Beijing. The book China’s Super Psychics by Paul Dong and Thomas Raffill describes children with exceptional human functioning (EHF) who display similar patterns to Indigo or Star Children. They, too, are very psychic and intuitive, for example some have the ability to open flower buds by thought alone. And like the Mexican children, many have shown an ability to see with other parts of their bodies. They display telekinetic abilities as well as other fascinating multi-dimensional skills, such as sensing another’s thoughts (telepathy). It has also been reported that the Chinese government has observed these children changing the human DNA molecule in a petri dish before cameras and scientific equipment to record this supposedly impossible feat. We have no evidence to prove that these abilities are the result of extraterrestrial interventions. But, given the fact that the Chinese government is very secretive, this may well be something they do not feel ready to share. However, I am told that the Chinese are extremely interested in the UFO phenomenon and take it very seriously.

More pieces of the puzzle.

Although I can’t cover all my research in this article, I can give the reader some points to ponder. The late Francis Crick, Nobel Prize winner, co-discoverer of the shape of the DNA molecule and author of Life Itself, made the astounding claim ‘that an advanced civilisation transported the seeds of life in a spacecraft’! One wonders what led him to such an incredible conclusion. References in religious and biblical texts certainly raise questions as to our real origins. Anthropology still can’t explain how we changed or morphed so dramatically from Neanderthal to Homo sapiens and the missing link has not been discovered or explanations given on how the developmental gap was bridged.  Biblical scholar, Zecheria Sitchin, author of the Earth Chronicles suggests such answers could lie in ancient religious texts, such as the Bible. According to Sitchen, the Bible is a condensed rendering of ancient Sumerian and Akkadian texts. From his research he believes that Homo sapiens was a genetic upgrade of existing hominids which was undertaken by extraterrestrial beings called the Nephilim who came to Earth 450,000 years ago.

Indigenous tribes worldwide have within their oral history that they are visited by sky beings and are being genetically upgraded. The Dogan tribe (African Mali Tribe) call the star visitors the Nummo, an alien species which came from Sirius and genetically upgraded humans when they came to Earth. The Aborigines of Australia also talk of the sky beings Wandjina, who made them and gave them laws to live by.

Many sacred texts apart from the Bible raise similar questions. Will Hart, author of The Dawn of the Genesis Race notes references to God in ‘plurality’. Genesis, verse 26, states ‘Then God said, and now we will make human beings, they will be like us and resemble us.’ The question is, who are ‘us’?

For those who seek to explore, there are many such anomalies in archaeological, anthropological, religious and spiritual texts that must guide the thinking person to question what we are educated to believe in terms of our origins and genetic heritage.  But, the most compelling evidence comes from the testimony of children, many of them not old enough to read. It’s information so profound one has to wonder how and where they obtained it.

Mike Oram (experiencer) resides in the United Kingdom. He told me that he was only 4 years old when he told his mother that there was no such thing as death. His mother disagreed, but Mike said ‘the Universe goes on for eternity and it’s not true that we no longer play a part in the Universe. We come back.’ ‘I was too young to know the word reincarnation’, he said. ‘I then shocked her by saying “You are not my real parents, my parents are in space, and something of incredible importance will happen in this planet and it will affect all levels of consciousness, it will not happen in your life time but it will in mine.” My poor mother never forgot that conversation.’ (Mike Oram)

Colin Wilson in Alien Dawn (1998) wrote that not long before Andrija Puharich’s death he asked him what he was working on. ‘Paranormal children’, he said: ‘You wouldn’t believe how many of these kids are out there, they seem to be at genius level. I know dozens, and there are probably thousands.’ Wilson concludes, ‘And this, I suspect is the beginning of the change that the UFOs are working on’ (p.309).

Unfortunately many such phenomena are only recognised through a particular discipline’s limited field of study, and this sadly narrows the perspective. There is no doubt that, for some, the extraterrestrial hypothesis is a hard one to swallow. But even if (for now) we interpret this data from a desire to understand why we may be evolving so rapidly, as this research suggests, we need to be open to all possibilities. Even if the puzzle is just perceived as another way of understanding ourselves, the question remains that, if we are evolving at an accelerated rate than cannot be explained in normal evolutionary terms, how and why is it happening?

Are Star Children, New Humans, Indigos and smart kids, etc, one and the same phenomenon? If they are, then the extraterrestrial hypothesis makes more sense. After all, it is ludicrous for the thinking person to believe we are the only intelligent life in the universe, given the vastness of space. And it is logical to believe that some of those other life forms may have evolved sufficiently to be able to visit us, even if how they travel here may be beyond our current scientific understanding.

The hypothesis of extraterrestrial reality is not only possible but also probable and explains many anomalies in our origins, our mythology and religions. Certainly, if what experiencers and indigenous people tell us is true, we have a very intimate and on-going relationship with the visitors, in addition to a common gene pool. This would certainly explain their continuing interest and participation in our evolutionary development.

The primitive and aggressive nature of Homo sapiens, armed with technology to destroy not only each other but our beautiful planet, may well be why these ET ancestors have decided to accelerate humanity’s evolutionary upgrade program. A New Human with multi-level awareness of our cosmic connection to all that is, may well be the only way we will finally appreciate what we have, change our behaviour, and grow up to take full responsibility for ourselves and this beautiful planet.

The Star Children could be an integral part of this wake up call and it may be that through them we are being led to an understanding of this profound connection.

‘Human beings are here to remember themselves, with conscious awareness and with complete understanding of their innate connection to the Universe.’ — T. Taylor.

If quantum theory is correct, science can’t disagree that we are indeed connected to everything, including our extraterrestrial visitors! ‘To them we are the aliens!’ — Jess, (8 years old, Western Australia). What can I say: ‘Out of the mouths of babes!’

EXOPOLITICS: A DECADE OF CONTACT

A DECADE OF CONTACT

ALFRED LAMBREMONT WEBRE, JD, MEd
INSTITUTE FOR COOPERATION IN SPACE (ICIS)

"Alfred Lambremont Webre's odyssey into the realm of life in the vast Universe surrounding planet Earth is indeed a fascinating journey if you read it with an open mind...  To turn us in the direction of re-unification with the rest of creation the author is proposing a 'Decade of Contact' -  an era of openness, public hearings, publicly funded research, and education about extraterrestrial reality. That could be just the antidote the world needs to end its greed-driven, power-centered madness."

- Honorable Paul T. Hellyer, Minister of National Defense under Canadian Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson and Deputy Prime Minister of Canada under Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau

A DECADE OF CONTACT has four Objectives:

DISCLOSURE - Open, transparent, official governmental disclosure and declassification of all past and present programs related to Extraterrestrial Presence.

DECADE OF CONTACT - Public funding by U.N. Member Nations and by the UNITED NATIONS of a 10 year process of formal public education, scientific research, educational curricula development, strategic planning, community activity, and public outreach about the Extraterrestrial Presence and our future in a populated Universe.

SPACE PRESERVATION TREATY - A permanent ban on all space-based weapons and warfare in space through a Space Preservation Treaty Conference.

DIPLOMACY – Public Interest Diplomacy with advanced, ethical Off-Planet Cultures now visiting Earth.

CONTEXT: HIGHER PLAN - We are not alone in this task.  A massive operation is underway involving integrated resources of diverse, advanced upper-dimensional Extraterrestrial civilizations, coordinated around an Integrated Plan to facilitate our living planet Earth's shift into a higher dimensional home within Extraterrestrial CIVILIZATION.

Space.com: "DO NOT PUBLISH: UFO Group Demands Congressional Hearing" - Space.com, UFOs & the information embargo about an Extraterrestrial presence on Earth

VANCOUVER, B.C. - Leonard David's June 22, 2006 article on space.com "UFO Research: Findings vs. Facts" fits within a demonstrable pattern of disinformation by omission and non-publication of articles actually completed by Space.com journalists on the subject of UFOs and their relation to an Extraterrestrial presence on Earth

SPACE.COM JUNE 22, 2006 ARTICLE:

http://www.space.com/news/060622_alien_encounters.html

Please note below an article written by Leonard David of Space.com on May 9, 2001, after interviewing both Dr. Steven Greer of the Disclosure Project and Alfred Webre of the Institute for Cooperation in Space (ICIS). 

The Space.com article is clearly marked:  "DO NOT PUBLISH."

Though completed by Leonard David, the May 9 2001 article was blocked from publication by Space.com.

Why?  For what reasons and under what criteria?

The 2001 Space.com (unpublished) article provides a more balanced perspective on the probable Extraterrestrial/ Ultradimensional origin of some portion of the UFO phenomenon than does the above June 22, 2006 Space.com article, which could be classified as artful disinformation by omission of UFO research with which Mr. Leonard is well familiar.

The 2001 Leonard David article, though completed by David, does not appear to have ever been actually published by Space.com.

Intentional bias?

The non-publication of the May 9, 2001 Space.com article, and the disinformation-by-omission nature of the June 22, 2006 Space.com article together provide an objective basis for concluding that a systematic, intentional bias exists on the part of Space.com in its reporting on the UFO Phenomenon in general, including the Extraterrestrial/ Ultradimensional origin of some portion of the UFO phenomenon.

It is reasonably to surmise that Space.com (which has also published articles by Dr. Carol Rosin and Alfred Webre proposing the Space Preservation Treaty's ban on all space-based weapons) may be acting in support of the information embargo about an Extraterrestrial presence on Earth.

DO NOT PUBLISH: UFO Group Demands Congressional Hearing
By Leonard David
Senior Space Writer
posted: 12:08 pm ET
09 May 2001

WASHINGTON -- There is compelling evidence that Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) visit the friendly skies of Earth. These extraterrestrial visitations suggest the presence of advanced extraterrestrial life forms, making use of advanced energy and propulsion technology. Witnesses throughout the world and spanning every branch of the armed services are coming forward to attest to this fact and demand that the U.S. Congress take up the issue.

The Disclosure Project, a nonprofit research organization, today called upon the U.S. President and Congress to support open congressional hearings on the matter.


These testimonies establish once and for all that we are not alone. Technologies related to extraterrestrial phenomena are capable of providing solutions to the global energy crisis, and other environmental and security challenges.
- Steven Greer, head of the Disclosure Project

For dozens of tight-lipped officials, many who are sworn to secrecy, the group is asking for amnesty so these individuals can inform the public-at-large regarding decades of high-level secrecy about UFOs and extraterrestrials.

Best case yet

According to the Disclosure Project head, Steven Greer, witnesses from such groups as the Federal Aviation Administration, Air Force Intelligence, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the National Reconnaissance Office are ready to step forward and make the best case yet that there is an extraterrestrial presence.

"These testimonies establish once and for all that we are not alone," Greer said. "Technologies related to extraterrestrial phenomena are capable of providing solutions to the global energy crisis, and other environmental and security challenges," he said.

Greer said the Crozet, Virginia-based Disclosure Project has gleaned some 120 hours of digital video testimony from witnesses regarding a long-standing cover-up, as well as amassing around 1200 pages of testimony transcript.

While the data collected speaks for itself, Greer called upon the public to "demand that Congress and the President and the leaders of other countries hold hearings into this subject without delay."

Past hearings

Greer said the only previously held congressional hearings were conducted in 1968, by the House Science and Astronautics Committee in the 90th Congress.

The testimony of first-hand witnesses, thousands of government documents, hundreds of photographs, and evidence to show past landings have been amassed by the group. The materials collected will be made available for any serious scientific or congressional inquiry, Greer said.

According to Alfred Webre, the congressional coordinator for the group, there are several lawmakers who have seen the legislative platform of the Disclosure Project and are prepared to sponsor it within the halls of the U.S. Congress. He would not identify those individuals, telling SPACE.com that private meetings are now underway to gain broad support for the group's findings and recommendations.

"The issue is why are they here, and what institutional interface can we build with extraterrestrial civilizations," Webre said in a phone interview, from his Vancouver, Canada office.

"All indications are that we are a lower-order, intelligent species. So my focus has been on the institutional aspectsto very rationally and proactively build an institutional base outward. Right now, we have an outmoded and antiquated 50-year policy of official denial that nobody now believes. At the same time, the necessary work to build the institutional infrastructure to deal with the presence of UFOs and extraterrestrials is not happening," Webre said.

ET craft recovered

"We are talking about a new space policy and paradigm if you assume that the universe may be populated and regulated," Webre said. He said the group is hopeful of motivating Congress to hold hearings on their findings perhaps as early as this year, or in 2002, he said.

Today, Greer said, that the evidence and testimony point to the fact that Earth is indeed being visited by advanced extraterrestrial civilizations and has been for some time. Moreover, this fact is the most classified-compartmented program within the U.S. and many other countries. Advanced spacecraft of extraterrestrial origin have been downed, retrieved and studied since at least the 1940s, and possibly as early as the 1930s.

Greer said that by studying an ET craft, new breakthroughs in energy generation and propulsion have been made. In fact, classified, above top-secret projects possess fully operational anti-gravity propulsion devices and new energy generation systems. If these energy sources are declassified, he said, civilization could be empowered and free of environmental damage.

Among a number of recommended steps to incorporate the science behind UFOs, the President of the United States should create a new scientific research organization. This group would be charted to integrate the knowledge and technologies behind UFOs with mainstream scientific and academic institutions.

QUOTE FROM PRESIDENT RONALD REAGAN (1987 United Nations ADDRESS):

"What could be more alien to the universal aspirations of our peoples than war and the threat of war?... My message today is that the dreams of ordinary people reach to astonishing heights. If we diplomatic pilgrims are to achieve equal altitudes, we must build all we do on the full breadth of humanity's will and consent and the full expanse of the human heart.  Thank you, and God bless you all."  Read full 1987 U.N.

The Guardian: Did Gary McKinnon Uncover a U.S. Off-Planet Space Navy?

Garymckinnon_1 THE GUARDIAN: GARY MCKINNON INTERVIEW - EXCERPT:

"What was the most exciting thing you saw?" I ask.

"I found a list of officers' names," he claims, "under the heading 'Non-Terrestrial Officers'."

"Non-Terrestrial Officers?" I say.

"Yeah, I looked it up," says Gary, "and it's nowhere. It doesn't mean little green men. What I think it means is not earth-based. I found a list of 'fleet-to-fleet transfers', and a list of ship names. I looked them up. They weren't US navy ships. What I saw made me believe they have some kind of spaceship, off-planet."

"The Americans have a secret spaceship?" I ask.

"That's what this trickle of evidence has led me to believe."

"Some kind of other Mir that nobody knows about?"

"I guess so," says Gary.

"What were the ship names?"

"I can't remember," says Gary. "I was smoking a lot of dope at the time. Not good for the intellect."

Hacker Uncovered US Off-Planet Space Navy
6-15-6

Note - This is - possibly - a profoundly important development. If Mr. McKinnon's data and assumption are correct, it validates what I and others have been postulating for many years: that the US Navy/Military may well be operating off-planet via back-engineered ET technology (or WWII German?) for a long time...long enough to have a 'fleet' of space craft and officers to either man them or otherwise control them. For those who remember the Clementine mission, you will recall it was a US Navy project which micro-mapped the entire Moon. If McKinnon stumbled onto a secret file of 'Non-Terrestrial Officers'...it would, indeed, suggest the US Military has been quietly, efficiently, secretly running off-planet operations for a long
time. - JR

Gary McKinnon, the English hacker facing 70 years in U.S. prison for searching Pentagon sites for UFO evidence, says the weirdest thing he foundwas a list of "Non-Terrestrial Officers" and fleet transfers between ships that don't exist in the U.S. Navy.

'I found a list of officers' names,' he claims, 'under the heading Non-Terrestrial Officers.'

'Non-Terrestrial Officers?'

'Yeah, I looked it up,' says Gary, 'and it's nowhere. It doesn't mean little green men. What I think it means is not earth-based. I found a list of fleet-to-fleet transfers, and a list of ship names. I looked them up. They weren't U.S. navy ships. What I saw made me believe they have some kind of spaceship, off-planet.'

THE GUARDIAN

Game over

Gary McKinnon has been accused of committing the 'biggest military computer hack of all time', and if extradited to the US faces up to 70 years in jail. So how did this techno geek from north London end up cracking open the Pentagon and Nasa's systems? He talks exclusively to Jon Ronson as he awaits his fate

Saturday July 9, 2005
The Guardian

The following correction was printed in the Guardian's Corrections and clarifications column, Saturday July 23 2005

In the following article we incorrectly referred to a piece of software called RemotelyAnywhere as a hacking programme. The programme, made by 3am Labs, is designed for remote access and administration. It is used by thousands of enterprises worldwide. We apologise for the unintended misrepresentation.

In 1983, when Gary McKinnon was 17, he went to see the movie WarGames at his local cinema in Crouch End, north London. In WarGames, a geeky computer whiz kid hacks into a secret Pentagon network and, inadvertently, almost instigates world war three. Sitting in the cinema that day, the teenage Gary wondered if he, too, could be a hacker.

Article continues
"Really," I say to him now, "WarGames should have put you off hacking for life."

"Well," he replies, "I didn't mean it to actually come true." WarGames ends with the Pentagon telling the young nerd how impressed they are by his technical acumen. He's probably going to grow up to have a brilliant career at Nasa or the department of defence. This is an unlikely scenario for Gary McKinnon. He currently faces 20 charges in the US, including stealing computer files, obtaining secrets that might have been "useful to an enemy", intentionally causing damage to a protected computer, and interfering with maritime navigation equipment in New Jersey. Last month he attended extradition proceedings at Bow Street magistrates court - he had, the American prosecutors said, perpetrated the "biggest military computer hack of all time". He "caused damage and impaired the integrity of information ... The US military district of Washington became inoperable and the cost of repairing the shutdown was $700,000 ... These [hacking attacks] occurred immediately after 9/11 ... " And so on.

This is Gary's first interview. He called me out of the blue on the Monday before last, just as I was screaming at my child to stop knocking on people's doors and running away. "Your son sounds like a hacker," he told me. Then he invited me to his house in Bounds Green, north London. He is good-looking, funny, slightly camp, nerdy, chain-smokes Benson & Hedges, and is terrified. "I'm walking down the road and I find I can't control my own legs," he says. "And I'm sitting up all night thinking about jail and about being arse-fucked. An American jail. And remember, according to them I was making Washington inoperable 'immediately after September 11'. I'm having all these visions of ... " Gary puts on a redneck prisoner voice, "'What you doing attacking our country, boy? Pick up that soap.' Yeah, it is absolutely fucking terrifying. Especially because a friend of mine was on holiday in America once and was viciously attacked and ended up killing the guy who attacked him - he did 10 years in an American prison. He's quite a tough guy, and he said he had to fight tooth and nail every single day, no let up at all. And I'm thinking, 'I'm only a little nerd'."

The prison sentence the US justice department is seeking - should Gary be successfully extradited - is up to 70 years. What Gary was hunting for, as he snooped around Nasa, and the Pentagon's network, was evidence of a UFO cover-up.

Gary McKinnon was born in Glasgow in 1966. His father ran a scaffolding gang, but his parents separated when he was six and he moved to London with his mother and stepfather, a bit of a UFO buff. "He comes from Falkirk," Gary says, "and just outside Falkirk there's a place called Bonnybridge, which is the UFO capital of the world. When he lived there, he had a dream that he was walking around Bonnybridge seeing huge ships. He told me this and it inflamed my curiosity. He was a great science fiction reader. So, him being my second father, I started reading science fiction, too, and doing everything he did."

Gary read Isaac Asimov and Robert Heinlein - "the golden age of science fiction" - and he joined Bufora, the British UFO Research Association, when he was 15. Bufora describes itself as "a nationwide network of around 300 people, who have a dedicated, noncultist interest in understanding the wide-ranging extent of the UFO enigma".

"So you began to believe in UFOs," I say.

"To hope," says Gary, "that there might be something more advanced than us, keeping a friendly eye on us. Hopefully a friendly eye." Then he saw WarGames, and he thought, "Can you really do it? Can you really gain unauthorised access to incredibly interesting places? Surely it can't be that easy." And so, in 1995, he gave it a try.

He sat in his girlfriend Tamsin's aunt's house in Crouch End, and he began to hack. He downloaded a program that searched for computers that used the Windows operating system, scanned addresses and pinpointed administrator user names that had no passwords. Basically, what Gary was looking for - and found time and again - were network administrators within high levels of the US government and military establishments who hadn't bothered to give themselves passwords. That's how he got in.

His Bufora friends "were living in cloud cuckoo land", he says. "All those conspiracy theorists seemed more concerned with believing it than proving it." He wanted evidence. He did a few trial runs, successfully hacking into Oxford University's network, for example, and he found the whole business "incredibly exciting. And then it got more exciting when I started going to places where I really shouldn't be".

"Like where?" I ask.

"The US Space Command," he says.

And so, for the next seven years, on and off, Gary sat in his girlfriend's aunt's house, a joint in the ashtray and a can of Foster's next to the mouse pad, and he snooped. From time to time, some Nasa scientist sitting at his desk somewhere would see his cursor move for no apparent reason. On those occasions, Gary's connection would be abruptly cut. This would never fail to freak out the then-stoned Gary.

He sounds to me like a virtuoso hacker, although I am someone who can barely download RealPlayer. I nod blankly as he says things like, "You get on to easy networks, like Support and Logistics, in order to exploit the trust relationship that military departments have between each other, and once you get on to an easy thing, you find out what networks they trust and then you hop and hop and hop, and eventually you think, 'That looks a bit more secretive.' " When I ask if he is brilliant, he says no. He's just an ordinary self-taught techie. And, he says, he was never alone.

"Once you're on the network, you can do a command called NetStat - Network Status - and it lists all the connections to that machine. There were hackers from Denmark, Italy, Germany, Turkey, Thailand ..."

"All on at once?" I ask. "You could see hackers from all over the world, snooping around, without the spaceniks or the military realising?"

"Every night," he says, "for the entire five to seven years I was doing this."

"Do you think they're still there? Are they still at it? Or have they been arrested, too?"

Gary says he doesn't know.

"What was the most exciting thing you saw?" I ask.

"I found a list of officers' names," he claims, "under the heading 'Non-Terrestrial Officers'."

"Non-Terrestrial Officers?" I say.

"Yeah, I looked it up," says Gary, "and it's nowhere. It doesn't mean little green men. What I think it means is not earth-based. I found a list of 'fleet-to-fleet transfers', and a list of ship names. I looked them up. They weren't US navy ships. What I saw made me believe they have some kind of spaceship, off-planet."

"The Americans have a secret spaceship?" I ask.

"That's what this trickle of evidence has led me to believe."

"Some kind of other Mir that nobody knows about?"

"I guess so," says Gary.

"What were the ship names?"

"I can't remember," says Gary. "I was smoking a lot of dope at the time. Not good for the intellect."

This was November 2000. By now, Gary was hooked. He quit his job as a systems administrator for a small business, "which hugely pissed off my girlfriend Tamsin. It was the last straw. She dumped me and started seeing this other bloke because I was such a selfish waste of space. Poor Tamsin. And she was the one paying the phone bill because I didn't have a job. We were still living together. God, have you ever tried living with someone after you've split up? It's bad."

So while Tamsin was trying to get on with her new relationship, Gary was in the living room of her aunt's house, hacking. He snooped around all the Forts - Fort Meade, Fort Benning, etc - reading internal court martial reports of soldiers getting imprisoned for rape and murder and drug abuse. At the Johnson Space Centre he spied on photographs of cigar-shaped objects that might have been UFOs but - he says - were probably satellites. "You end up lusting after more and more complex security measures," he says. "It was like a game. I loved computer games. I still do. It was like a real game. It was addictive. Hugely addictive."

It was never really politically motivated. The most political he's ever got is to attend a Noam Chomsky lecture. A John Pilger book sits on the coffee table next to his bed. Yes, he was hacking in the immediate aftermath of September 11, but only because he wanted to see if there was a conspiracy afoot. "Why did the building fall like a controlled series of explosions? " he says. "I hate conspiracy theories, so I thought I'd find out for myself."

"And did you find a conspiracy?" I ask.

"No," he says.

He strenuously denies the justice department's charge that he caused the "US military district of Washington" to become "inoperable". Well, once, he admits, but only once, he inadvertently pressed the wrong button and may have deleted some government files.

"What did you do then?"

"I thought, 'Ooh, bloody hell,' " he says. "And that's when I stopped for a while. And then my friend told me about Darpa. And so I started again."

Darpa is the Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency, an intriguing collection of brilliant military scientists, funded by the Pentagon. Darpa has been widely credited with inventing, among other things, the internet, the global positioning system, the computer mouse, and - somewhat more boneheadedly - FutureMAP, an online futures market designed to predict assassinations and bombings by encouraging investor speculation in such crimes. The US Senate once described FutureMAP as "an unbelievably stupid idea". Darpa has long been of interest to conspiracy theorists because it is semi-secretive, bizarre (they have put much effort into creating a team of telepathic spies) and occupies that murky world that lies between science and war.

Gary heard from a friend that Darpa might have invented a robot soldier, so he hacked in and claims he found evidence of "an autonomous machine that would go in and do the dirty work. These things could go upstairs and look for bombs. You wouldn't have to send in real people. And I also found these awful special forces training videos of guys running around, doing close-quarter battle. It was ridiculous. These yellow words would flash on to the video: 'BRUTALITY! REMEMBER BRUTALITY! SHOCK! DOMINATION!' You're thinking, 'Oh my God!' It was like Batman." I tell Gary that I've seen videos like that - incredibly fierce special forces training videos - when I was researching my book about US psychological operations.

"It's as if investigative journalism has died," he replies. "That's all I was doing. The only difference between you and me was that you were invited."

Gary was caught in November 2002. He says it was inevitable, in retrospect, because he was "getting a bit sloppy". He pauses. "I'd never have envisaged this happening to myself, but I did get a bit megalomaniacal as well. It got a bit silly. I ended up talking to people I hacked into."

"Saying 'I'm a hacker'?"

"No," he says, "I'd instant message them, using WordPad, with a bit of a political diatribe. You know, I'd leave a message on their desktop that read 'Secret government is blah blah blah.' " They found Gary in the end because he'd used his own email address to download a hacking program called RemotelyAnywhere. "God knows why I used my real email address," he says. "I suppose it means I'm not a secretive, sophisticated, checking-myself-every-step-of-the-way type of hacker."

On the night before his arrest, Gary had been up playing games. "Maybe I'd been doing a bit of weak, fun hacking, too," he says. "I'd had one hour's sleep, and I woke up completely muddled, and suddenly at the bottom of my bed there was this voice: 'Hello, my name's Jeff Donson from the National High Tech Crime Unit. Gary McKinnon, you're under arrest!' They put Tamsin and me in the meat-wagon. They took my PC, Tamsin's PC, three other computers I was fixing for friends. They went upstairs and took my girlfriend's auntie's daughter's computer."

Gary was kept in a police station overnight. Then the Americans offered him a deal, via his British solicitor. "They said, 'If you incur the cost of the whole extradition process, be a good boy, come over here, we'll give you three or four years, rather than the whole sentence.' I said, 'OK, give me that in writing.' They said, 'Oh no, we can't do that.' So they were offering a secret trial, no right of appeal on the outcome, no comment to the newspapers, and nothing in writing. My solicitor, doing her job, advised me to take it, and when I said no, she was very, 'Ooh, they're going to come down heavy.' "

In return, Gary offered a somewhat hare-brained counter deal, via a Virginia public defender. "I made a sort of veiled threat to them. I said, 'You know the places I've been, so you know the stuff I've seen' kind of thing." He pauses and blushes slightly. "That didn't work."

"So you were saying, 'If you go heavy on me, I'll tell people what I found'?"

"Yeah," he says. "And I found out that my landline was being bugged, so every time I was on the phone talking to a friend about it, I made sure I'd say, 'All I want is a quiet life, but if they really want to drag me through it, I'll drag them through the shit, too.' "

"And what would you have dragged them through the shit about?" I ask.

"You know," says Gary, "the, uh, Non-Terrestrial Officers. The spaceships. 'The whole world thinks it's cooperating in building the International Space Station, but you've already got a space-based army that you refer to as Non-Terrestrial Officers'."

There is a silence.

"I had very little evidence," he admits. "It's not a very good bargaining chip at all, really, is it?"

Given that the justice department has announced that the information Gary downloaded was not "classified", and he was stoned much of the time, perhaps we can assume that Nasa is not too worried about his "discoveries".

I ask Gary what's he's going to do next. He says on Friday he's off to the Trocadero in Piccadilly Circus, for the London 2600 meeting. He explains that they're known as a hacking group, but really they're a bunch of "unqualified experts who drink lots of beer and tell you all the funky undocumented things you can do with your mobile phones. They wire up PlayStation 2s and X-Boxes to dance mats. They play with technology and bend stuff without breaking it."

I ask Gary if they see him as some kind of mythical hero, now that the US government has described him as the biggest military hacker of all time. He says, no, they see him as a complete idiot. And, in some ways, he is indeed a complete idiot. Well, he is a likable and intelligent geeky man who did many, many idiotic things. What he is not, his friends and supporters reckon, is someone who deserves extradition and 70 years in an American jail. They've set up a Free Gary McKinnon website (spy.org.uk/freegary).

Gary's never spoken publicly before, but now, with the extradition proceedings, he says there's nothing left open to him. For a while, it crossed his mind he might end up like the computer nerd from WarGames, having a brilliant career working for them. "They need people like me," he says. But that's not going to happen.

He's also chosen to talk now because his chances of getting a job have diminished to practically zero. "For the first time in the past few years, I just had a solid work offer," he says. "Game-testing. Which would have been a dream for me. I'm still a big kid like that. I'd love to do that for a job. But now, as a condition of this bail, I'm not allowed to touch the internet. So that was out of the window. So. Yeah. I thought, fuck it."

He and Tamsin have split up. He no longer lives in Crouch End but in the nearby, slightly more down-at-heel Bounds Green, and has given up smoking dope. He is not allowed near the internet, not allowed a passport, and spends a lot of time reading and sitting in the pub, awaiting his fate.

Nothing much happened in the years since his arrest in 2002 under the Computer Misuse Act - no charges were brought against him in the UK. Then on June 8 this year, he suddenly found himself in front of Bow Street magistrates, the target of extradition proceedings. That's when the panic attacks kicked in again, the horror visions of life in an American jail. He had poked around, he says, but he hadn't broken anything, besides that one inadvertent mistake. He thought he was going to get a year, max. Now they're talking about 70 years.

"You know," he says as we finish the interview, "everyone thinks this is fun or exciting. But it isn't exciting to me. It is terrifying."

His next extradition hearing is on July 27

Dr. John E. Mack: Global Mind Change - Deeper Causes: Exploring the Role of Consciousness in Terrorism

Global Mind Change - Deeper Causes: Exploring the Role of Consciousness in Terrorism
Dr. John E. Mack | IONS Noetic Sciences Review | IONS Review #64 |

It seems difficult in these heady times of action to seek beyond evil to its roots, much less to the sources of the very idea of evil in the way that human beings seem programmed to think. But seek we must; otherwise a world we have trouble understanding may, finally, crash around us with all of the shock, disruption, and loss of life that we experienced in the destruction of the Twin Towers.

The words of wise leaders have cautioned us about the need for a fundamental shift in thinking and perception. Former Czech President Vaçlav Havel and Albert Einstein are two such figures. Havel, in his February 1990 address to the United States Congress, spoke of the “antiquated straitjacket of the bipolar view of the world,” and stressed that “without a global revolution in the sphere of human consciousness, nothing will change for the better in the sphere of our being as humans. ” Einstein warned repeatedly that without a fundamental change in human thinking, our species would drift toward ultimate catastrophe.

The search for the understanding, knowledge, and insight that such wisdom demands may seem “soft” in a time of radical patriotism, polarization, and simplification. ut it may be that only a profound shift in how we perceive the world—in consciousness itself—can, in the end, create a secure and just civilization in which opportunity is available for all, and no one is left out.

October 21, 2001, on the radio program Me and Mario, former New York governor Mario Cuomo said, “This may get me into trouble [indicating his awareness of how unpopular any effort to understand seemed to be in the jingoistic climate of that moment], but the only way to solve the terrorist problem is to change the minds of those who practice terrorism. ”Cuomo is on the right track, I think, but it is not likely that the minds of the terrorists themselves will change, nor is it only terrorists whose thinking is problematic. The need to “change minds” must apply to all of us who would prefer to avoid trying to face the fact that terrorism does not arise in a vacuum, nor from some inchoate reservoir of evil out of which particular bad people may spontaneously emerge at certain times in history.

The proper place to begin our effort to understand (not excuse), it seems to me, is with the question of causation. For no matter how loathsome we may find the acts of “fanatics,” without understanding what breeds them and drives them to do what they do in a particular time and place, we have little chance of preventing further such actions, let alone of “eradicating terrorism. ”

We can think of three levels of causation, each calling for solutions or responses appropriate to its own level. These might be called 1) Immediate causes—in this case, the purposive actions of men or women who are willing to die as they destroy other lives in the process; 2) Proximate causes—the human pain and socioeconomic breeding ground of such desperate behavior; and 3) Deeper causes— deriving from the nature of mind, of consciousness itself.
Immediate Causes

At the most immediate level, the cause of the recent events is obviously the actions of people governed by implacable hatred, who are willing to sacrifice their own lives in the process of killing others without regard for those they destroy. The natural, perhaps inevitable, response to such actions is to find out “who did it,” stop others like them, and punish their supporters. This involves gathering intelligence, and a military campaign. Military action may produce real successes, but focusing exclusively on this level of the problem, while ignoring or giving too little attention to the deeper levels, may result mainly in provoking still greater antagonism that spawns more terrorism, and, in the long run, bringing about a widening war without doing anything about what gave rise to the hatred and aggression in the first place.

Proximate Causes

Listening to the pronouncements of President Bush and other American leaders in the weeks after the events of 9-11, one could get the impression that the rage that leads to the planning and execution of terrorist acts arises from a kind of void, unconnected with history, without causation other than pure evil fueled by jealousy. Yet it is not difficult to discover that the present conflict has complex historical and economic roots. It has grown out of the affliction of countless millions of people in the Middle East and elsewhere who perceive themselves to have been victims of the policies of a superpower and its allies that have little concern for their lives, needs, or suffering; and to the actions of multinational corporations that, in the words of Indian writer Arundhati Roy, “are taking over the air we breathe, the ground we stand on, the water we drink, the thoughts we think. ” For these millions, a figure such as Osama bin Laden, whom we see only as a mass murderer, can become a hero because he moved beyond helplessness to action against the seemingly indifferent and invincible oppressor.

It is inconceivable that terrorism can be checked, much less eradicated, if these causes are not addressed. This would require, at the very least, a re-examination of government policies that one-sidedly favor Israel in relation to the Palestinians (not to mention our support of Saddam Hussein against Iran before he set off a conflict a few years later). It would require further help with the growing refugee problem, and a turning of our attention to the toll that poverty and disease are taking in the Middle East and other parts of the globe. These may not be the conditions under which the terrorist leaders themselves have lived, but they create the reservoir of misery, hurt, helplessness, and rage from which the foot soldiers of terrorism can be recruited.

The role of the United States in creating these conditions can be debated, but as a superpower that consumes a major portion of the Earth’s resources, there can be little doubt that not only are we seen in many parts of the world as responsible for them, but we are looked to, along with other privileged Western nations, to do much more to help in their solution.

Certainly there is much more that could and has been said about the causes of terrorism that I am calling “proximate,” but the principal focus of this article is different. I am concerned here with what might be thought of as more fundamental causes, the roots of terrorism that derive from mind, from consciousness itself, and from the institutions that express its purposes and intentions.

Deeper Causes

Worldviews. Political psychology, or the application of psychological understanding to political phenomena, should begin with a consideration of worldviews. A worldview is an organizing principle or philosophy, a fixed way of thinking or habit of mind. Worldviews are similar to ideologies but broader in scope. (Ideologies derive from worldviews, but are more specific, usually having to do with particular social, political, and economic systems. ) A worldview might be thought of as a kind of mental template into which we try to fit events. Without some sort of worldview, which can also be thought of as a lens through which to see the world, we would feel even more helpless, unable to orient ourselves in a world that has become increasingly complex and unsettling. Worldviews tend to be rather rigidly structured, and are able to withstand a huge amount of information that is difficult, if not impossible, to fit into them. When faced with data that might appear to challenge a worldview, or reveal it to be dysfunctional, most of us, most of the time, will construe a situation, or reconstrue the facts, rather than modify the worldview.

"When faced with data that challenge a worldview most of us will construe a situation, or reconstrue the facts, rather than modify the worldview"

Dualistic Thinking. In relation to the events of 9-11, and to the terrorist threat they represent, we have a chance to observe two largely contradictory worldviews. One might be thought of as the dualistic, dichotomizing, or polarizing habit of mind. The dualistic mind divides the world into conflicting polarities— good and evil, God and the Devil, for or against, friend or enemy, deserving or undeserving. (This is particularly important in providing the assumptive underpinning for perpetuating racial and socioeconomic differences). The dualistic mind fragments, seeing separation and difference more easily than unity and connection. The polarizing mind is not incapable of love, but such love is restricted in its application to one side, leaving the lover free to hate a designated enemy.

A second worldview holds tightly to the ideal of universal love and oneness. This worldview has its own rigidities, and can be inappropriate when applied uncritically to a situation that defies its precepts.

"At this turning point in history, probably nothing less than a radical reorientation of mind can offer any hope for the future of human life on this planet"

But I will focus here on the first, for it is expressions dualistic thinking in the form of blindness to diversity, obliviousness of the effects of inequalities of resources, and a lack of concern for the vast suffering that prevails on this planet that have given rise to the present dangerous crisis. The polarizing mind will always be with us because it is the mind history. If anyone ever questioned this, the present crisis should put such doubts to rest. On each side the faithful have been rallied by religious slogans and exhorted to destroy the evil enemy. The language of crusading and of religious warfare is all about us.

There have been efforts recently to “let religion off the hook. ” Jesus, it is said, preached of love, and Islam opposes the killing of innocents, but it is not that simple. For, as former Paulist priest James Carroll has written, dualistic language is readily found in religious texts. Messages of universal love and peace coexist in the Bible and in the Koran with contrasting statements. “Our noblest impulses,” he writes, “come inevitably intertwined with opposite inclinations. ” Messages of universal love or of division and exclusion, of lasting peace or of holy war, can all be found in the Bible and the Koran: It is a matter of selection and interpretation. Religion and religious institutions can serve to polarize and stimulate violence, or to unite and transcend it. Religious leaders bear a huge responsibility in the present crisis, and can play a critical role in moving beyond it.

Public Discourse. At this turning point in history, probably nothing less than a radical reorientation of mind and an authentic mastery of the psychology of violence can offer any hope for the future of human life on this planet. The accumulated hurts are so deep, the consequent rage so intense, the ignorance of their roots so prevailing, and the technological means of destruction so sophisticated and so readily available, that, as President Bush stated in his December 11, 2001 address to the Citadel (a military academy in South Carolina), a relatively few determined killers can now plan and execute projects of annihilation that can end life as we know it. There is no guarantee that a profound psychospiritual sea change, a transformation of mind and heart, can prevent this, at least in time. But I cannot see how anything short of this offers the possibility of survival for our species.

The transformation I write of here must, of course, start with attention to what I have referred to above as proximate causes. These include the unconscionable inequalities in the distribution of resources, the unmet material needs of much of the world’s population, and the strong’s continuing political oppression of the weak, who will inevitably turn into terrorists and dictators in desperation, if not for justice and relief, at least for an outlet for their rage and frustration.

My focus, for purposes of this article, is different. The quest for understanding that can lead us out of our present catastrophic morass begins with the recognition that knowledge of the ways of the mind in the arenas of political conflict is relevant and useful. Political psychology is a relatively new field, but one to which not only academic psychologists and social scientists are being increasingly drawn, but also diplomats and other political professionals.

The dualistic mind is not by nature self-reflective and, inasmuch as it attributes good to its own motives and actions, it will find the opposite of good in the other. Negative or aggressive ideas and feelings that are not consistent with this positive self-regard must be pushed away, or projected outwards and attributed to the enemy. A vulnerable and frightened public can all too easily be enrolled into this dangerous way of thinking. Psychologists, social scientists, spiritual leaders, and political professionals (as well as government and other institutional leaders who understand this basic truth), have a responsibility to do whatever they can in their speaking and writing to change the public conversation so that the role of one’s own group in the creation of political conflict can be acknowledged and examined, and new possibilities brought forth to create a genuine global community.
Transcending The Dualistic Mind

Once we begin to look at the private aggressor or terrorist in ourselves, and, as a nation, begin to look publicly at our own contribution to creating the hostility of which we find ourselves the target, other kinds of knowing become possible. Then we can begin to look at how the mind deals with differences, and is prone to the creation of enemies, especially when our very existence appears to be threatened. Then we can begin to look beyond mere tolerance to true knowing of the other. Only the mind that has recognized and integrated or transcended its primitive dualistic habits can begin to identify with the suffering and rage of geographically distant peoples. Only then can we see the aggression and ignorance that underlies our dominance and neglect, and perceive our own role in the creation of victims far from our own shores.
Emerging Possibilities And Opportunities

Even as we face unprecedented peril from the forces that divide us, there is emerging in science, religion, psychology, and technology possibilities that may bring us back from the edge of destruction. Certainly the internet and other information systems offer the possibility of worldwide interconnection, although these have yet to realize their potential for transcending duality and enmity. But, more fundamentally, we are now witnessing a coming together of science, psychology, and spirituality after centuries of ideological and disciplinary fragmentation. Both modern physics and depth psychology are revealing to us a universe in which mind and matter appear intimately related. The very notion of separation seems to be a kind of illusion, and all that we can perceive around us is connected by resonances, both physical and nonphysical, that can make the possibility of universal justice, truth, and love more than just a utopian fantasy.

At the heart of this possibility lie what in the Western secular world are called “non-ordinary” states of consciousness, but in the world’s great religious traditions is variously called primary religious feeling, mystical oneness, connection with the ground of being, or universal love. For a person in this state of consciousness, neglect of the needs of others, the toleration of great suffering, the killing of innocents (“collateral damage”), the making of war itself, or the desecration of the Earth’s environment is virtually unthinkable. At the heart of these states of consciousness or being is a potential extension of the self beyond its usual boundaries. Thus these states make possible the identification with other beings or objects, wherever they are located, and with the Earth itself.

Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh calls this quality of conscious interconnectedness “interbeing. ” It is what Frederic Brussat and Mary Ann Brussat had in mind when, after the events of September 11, they adapted his poem “Please Call Me by My True Names”to read, “I am a loyal American who feels violated, and vows to stand behind any military action it takes to wipe terrorists off the face of the Earth,” and “I am a boy in a faraway country rejoicing in the streets of my village because someone has hurt the hated Americans,” and “I am a doctor in a hospital treating patients burned from head to toe who knows that these horrible images will remain in my mind forever,” and “I am a stone in the graveyard of Trinity Church covered with soot from the buildings that once stood proudly above me, death meeting death. ” The sequence is long, taking in all beings, including the terrorists themselves.
Toward A Consciousness Of Interconnection

It is no longer just Buddhist monks or other holy people and religious leaders who are undertaking the practices that create a consciousness of interconnection. A great shift in consciousness is taking place, even as the threat of annihilation grows around us. In the United States and throughout the world, a vast and growing movement to return to ancient traditions is arising, creating new forms of psychospiritual practice that can bring about the extension of empathy and the possibilities of knowledge beyond ourselves, the kind of knowledge of which Thich Nhat Hanh and his students write.

This is taking place in several ways. For instance:

    * the revitalization of established religions, enabling them to be more relevant to the challenges of our time;

    * the recognition that strong intuitive powers, sometimes crudely called “psychic” abilities, are, at root, not psychopathological as they have sometimes been regarded in the mental health professions, but, if used appropriately, shortened avenues to transformation, understanding, and love;

    * the increasing commitment of millions of people to various forms of individual and group spiritual practice;

    * the proliferation of large- and small-group experiential modalities that open consciousness and break down the barriers to connection and love;

    * increasing recognition of the power of extraordinary experiences (such as spontaneous spiritual epiphanies, unanticipated traumas that lead to personal transformation, near-death experiences, and so-called extraterrestrial encounters) to shatter the boundaries of the ego, expand identity, and open us to empathy, love, and relationship;

    * the emergence of new sociopolitical forms and institutions (such as the NGOs at the United Nations, and the emerging power of citizen diplomacy), which enable a wider range of professionals and ordinary citizens to take part in the processes and practices of international relations and relationships.

"A consciousness of interconnection makes possible the identification with other beings or objects, wherever they are located, and with the earth itself"

The United States is in a particularly strong position to take a leadership role in this transformation of consciousness. We are a pluralistic society with a long experience of living with diversity. The relative security that our privileged isolation has provided has given us the luxury of freedom, even though it has left us unprepared to deal with the terrible assault upon our nation that occurred in September, 2001. Yet this very safety and freedom has allowed us to become strong and creative in developing a practical understanding of the human psyche. We are jittery in the face of our new vulnerability, especially since we seem to receive alternating messages to beware of new attacks, but to go on living as if all were normal. But as we have been pioneers in creating a new political form—a democracy that has inspired the world in its discovery of the power that resides in diversity, and a unity that can transcend differences— we could also lead the world in developing the transformation of consciousness that could lead the human species away from the brink of disaster.

Conclusion

Humanity seems to be at a turning point. We are experiencing a kind of race to the future between the forces of destruction and creation. The preservation of our lives and possibilities will come not from the strategies of terrorists, nor from the bombs of the selfrighteous. This can happen only through a great awakening, a worldwide shift of consciousness that can transcend the habits of dualism, and enable the citizens of the Earth to become a genuine family of people and peoples, in which each of us can come to feel a responsibility for the welfare of all. As Gandhi once said, “We must be the change. ”

1996-97 Hale Bopp comet controversy: A Chronology

VICTORIA, B.C. - The 1996-97 Hale-Bopp comet controversy began after Chuck Shramek, an amateur astronomer from Houston, called Art Bell's program on November 14 1996 to report that he had a photograph showing a large object behind the Hale Bopp comet. This led to several radio shows on the issue and included different guests.

Contents 1 Dr. Courtney Brown on Art Bell 1.1 Hale Bopp's companion photos controversy 1.2 Brown's last appearance on Art Bell 1.3 Brown's public statement 2 Ed Dames on Art Bell 2.1 A disinformation campaign? 3 The Heaven's Gate cult suicide 4 External Links

Dr. Courtney Brown on Art Bell

Dr. Courtney Brown, Director of the Farsight Institute, who had previously been on the Art Bell show to discuss spirituality and extraterrestrial life, including the issue of life on Mars, offered remote viewing data on Bell's radio talk show shortly after Chuck Shramek came forward with his photo. Brown spoke about data obtained by his remote viewers that seemed to support photographic evidence obtained by Shramek. He said that the data suggested that it was a large object that could be complex, artificial, and technological in nature and that it was located behind Comet Hale-Bopp. To target the Hale Bopp companion, Brown said that his remote viewers used a verbal cue and did not use any photographs as a target. Brown claimed that the data was highly interesting and suggestive, but he never claimed that the data was 100% accurate.

Hale Bopp's companion photos controversy

Later, when Bell and his co-host Whitley Strieber found out that Brown's web master had received photos showing a companion to the Hale-Bopp comet, they urged them to come on his show to discuss it. The web master claimed to have received them from an astronomer at a major university who wanted to stay anonymous and whom she knew and with whom she spoke on the telephone. Brown and the Institute’s web master spoke about the images on the Art Bell show, and the web master claimed that her source told her that he would have a news conference announcing the images in one to two weeks. The news conference never took place, and Brown and the Institute’s web master appeared discredited in the public’s eye. After notifying Brown on January 14th 1997 and against Brown’s urgings, Bell released Brown's photo on the Internet on January 15, 1997. This further evolved into a major scandal shortly after when Bell was contacted by Oliver Hainut and David J. Tholen, both professors from the University of Hawaii. They said that the posted photo that Brown's web master received was an altered copy of one of their recent comet photos, and they provided a comparison as evidence. There has never been an independent corroboration of this claim, and some postings of a technical nature have appeared on the Internet disputing this claim. Since the original version photos obtained by The Farsight Institute have never been released, this issue has never been resolved.

Brown's last appearance on Art Bell

On January 16th, 1997, Brown went on the Art Bell show for the last time where he said he would not reveal the name of the astronomer who had given his web master the original film. He said the web master had committed herself not to reveal the astronomer's identity and only she knew the astronomer's name. He also said that it’s possible that this professor had good intentions but was tricked by someone else. He did not want to jeopardize the astronomer’s reputation and their agreement of confidentiality. He also raised the possibility of a libel suit if his webmaster disclosed the professor’s name since it would jeopardize that professor’s reputation now that the photos were being disputed as hoaxes. Brown argued that it was a mistake to have talked about something that was not a product of the Institute and his efforts to bring the focus back to remote viewing failed. [edit] Brown's public statement In a January 20, 1997 public statement, Brown suggested that the comet photos sent to him were part of a "wide-scale and highly organized disinformation campaign" with "resources that extend beyond those of any university or professor," and that The Farsight Institute had walked into a trap by talking about the photo. "Disinformation campaigns," says Brown, "are not unusual in the area of extraterrestrial life." This major scandal involving the astronomical photos destroyed any significant public credibility either Brown or The Farsight Institute may have had previously about the Hale Bopp comet controversy. January 16, 1997 was the last time Brown was invited to appear on the Art Bell radio show. The Hale Bopp story continued in full force on the Art Bell show, with the so-called Hale Bopp "Companion" being popularly referenced as "Hail Mary."

Ed Dames on Art Bell

Art Bell invited former top secret military remote viewer Ed Dames on his show more than once between January 1997 and March 1997. Dames talked about his company's remote viewing data that showed that the comet's companion carried a plant pathogen targeting Africa that will kill all plant life. He said that his remote viewing data showed that this was engineered by aliens who wanted to eliminate humans from the earth. He explained that all plants, including all food, will eventually be destroyed. That people will have nothing left to eat as this will cause a massive starvation worldwide.

A disinformation campaign?

On March 30, 1997, an anonymous posting that was later shared over the internet, went up on The Farsight Institute's bulletin board. It claimed to come from a spy who identified himself as "The Watcher" and who worked for an unidentified agency. He wrote that there was a campaign to discredit remote viewing because intelligence officials were not comfortable that it became declassified. This declassification took place in the mid 1990's, shortly before whistleblower Dr. David Morehouse, a former CIA & military remote viewer, published his book that also details a disinformation campaign against his credibility. The Watcher's posting also said: "What Dames does not know, but I am telling him now by writing this, is that several of the people who view for him are feeding him false information purposely. His predictions are nothing but fairy tales." Indeed, Dames' predictions never came true but there was no way of verifying the source of the anonymous posting. [edit] The Heaven's Gate cult suicide On March 27 1997, a secretive cult group called Heaven's Gate chose the appearance of the comet as a signal for their mass cult-suicide in San Diego. They claimed they were leaving their earthly bodies to travel to the space ship following the comet. It was speculated that members of the Heaven's Gate group committed mass suicide based on rumors Bell aired, but others discounted this, noting that the Heaven's Gate website stated that "Whether Hale-Bopp has a 'companion' or not is irrelevant from our perspective."

[1] (http://www.csicop.org/si/9707/art-bell.html) Whitley Strieber, Art Bell's co-host, later went on the Today Show with former astronaut Edgar Mitchell in regards to the cult suicide, to explain how important it is that the subject of extraterrestrial life be addressed by science before deciding what is going on.

A Commentary by PJ

Exopolitical review of Peter Jennings' Primetime TV show "Seeing is Believing"

by PJ, Exopolitics Advisor and Researcher

There are many ways to look at the same situation in life and no two people will share the same perspective.  This is also true for the February 24, 2005 ABC Peter Jennings’ UFO special Primetime show.  This show seemed to have been designed for the mainstream, for people who had not spent much time, if any, researching the UFO and ET contact issues.  It was designed for those who don't normally watch the documentaries that most people reading this article have seen.

Before getting into my exopolitical review of Jennings’ production, it’s important that I make a point about human perception.  I will use a model founded on Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP).  It defines that the way human beings perceive any reality or events is based on the context that is built around the event in question.  In other words, the meaning that we give to something (UFOs or abductions) is determined by how it is framed, by the frame of reference.  To give an example, if a five star general says that UFOs are real, we tend to believe more than if a psychiatric patient tells us that he saw a UFO.  It is the same information, only the frame of reference is different.  NLP explains that by changing the frame of reference around an event, we change the meaning of the event. 

The science of marketing and advertising is known as positioning, which is really nothing but framing a product or a service.  We can also position an idea.  All great communicators have mastered the ability to position their arguments in people’s minds in a way that creates an orchestrated meaning.  Let us have a look at how Jennings positioned his awaited show “UFOs – Seeing is Believing”.   

What Peter Jennings did in his production is to apparently position his show in a way that de-framed the Roswell UFO crash question.  By doing this, it also indirectly helped to de-frame the issue that a ‘shadow government’ exists.  Without Roswell or other such crashes, there is little evidence or logic to validate the issue of a secret government.  He also created a weak frame of reference in regards to the ‘abduction’ phenomenon.  But Jennings did build a strong frame of reference for UFOs in general, de-framing and re-framing project blue book as a non-scientific research project who’s purpose was not to  properly evaluate the issue of whether UFOs are real or not.  He even framed Hynek as someone who ended up believing that UFOs were real and required further scientific investigation.  Towards the end of his program, Jennings included a short, but strong scientific argument in regards to a theory of the nature of reality that brought forward this important issue of the existence of other dimensions (Einstein’s wormhole).  This was done through the interview with Michio Kaku's, the founder of the String Theory.  It’s interesting to note that this opens the door for the theory brought forth by Alfred Webre’s new book “Exopolitics – Politics, Government and Law in the Universe”.

If Jennings would have wanted to create a strong case for Roswell, all he would have had to do is cite former astronauts who have spoken out about it, former intelligence, army and civilian witnesses, etc., many who have never profited from Roswell.   But this did not seem to be his intent.  Instead, he framed the people involved with the promotion of the Roswell UFO crash in a way that made them look like opportunists who were motivated by fame and money, all based on what he called the non verifiable story of Jessie Marcel.   

If he would have wanted to create a strong case for abductions, all Jennings would have had to do is present the interview of Harvard's late Dr. John Mack, interviews of David Jacobs, Dr. Janet Colli, Dr. Richard Boylan, and many other researchers from around the world.  Creating a strong frame of reference for abductions, which are sometimes difficult for people but are really “sacred encounters” when one researches a bit deeper, was not his intent.  The combined testimonies would have created a frame of reference that would have presented the data in a way that would have created a meaning of more credibility, and more believable than how he only used Budd Hopkins and framed him as “the artist from New York who believes in aliens and hypnotizes people”.  To move towards de-framing Hopkins, which means de-framing the alien abduction issue, all that was needed was to get someone on the air with a Ph.D from a well known and credible institute who explains that hypnosis wasn’t proven to retrieve memories and that these people’s memories were caused by sleep paralysis, etc. 

Why did Jennings focus on creating a strong frame of reference validating the UFO issue only, and not crashed disks, government conspiracies or abductions?  What does it mean?  Everyone will have a different theory.  Many will believe that it did not help the field and was an attempt to discredit their lifelong research.  Many believe that the full truth should be broadcasted at once on primetime television because the truth is important.  These are good points and there are many ways to see it. 

Here is an exopolitical/NLP perspective, based on a frame of reference of gradual disclosure to the masses.   When people think of alien abductions, most people think about scary looking beings or monsters who come into your bedroom at night, abduct you, your kids and your wife against their will to do painful medical experiment.  Can anyone think of a scenario that could create more fear with the general population?   

If one wanted to take a potential fearful event or situation (abductions are scary for the masses) and transform it into something that was no longer fearful, all one has to do is to discredit the references on which the fearful event is build upon.  In other words, the potential scary frame must be pre-framed by discrediting the references that make up the potential scary frame.  Once done, even if the scary frame is introduced, it will not be believed because it has already been framed in people’s minds as fiction (people are not getting abducted). 

If references of alien abductions would have been presented on ABC as being strong and believable, the fear will become more real for people.  If people then complain to the government to get them stopped, and the government can’t do anything about it, one can only imagine what would be the result.  Most people are not yet able to understand the spiritual implications of ‘abductions’ and don’t understand that these beings come from other vibrational dimensions.  To try to educate the masses who watch ABC about this issue would be like trying to explain to a European who lived 3000 years ago how to program a computer.  The knowledge gap is too vast at this point to bring in this complex information to the mainstream.

Some remote viewers have written about alien abductions and gathered data that shows that the abductions have a spiritual purpose, but this issue is so controversial and so difficult to understand from the ‘frame of reference’ of someone who has not had a spiritual awakening or done vast research that it could not be understood by those who watch mainstream media. 

Perhaps the only solution that ABC saw was to make the references of alien abductions weak so few would believe it and because of this, it wouldn’t create general fear in society and people would dismiss abductions easily.  They might have felt like they had to somehow frame abductions in a way that left most in the mainstream believe that there were other explanations. Like most, I was disappointed that Dr. John Mack was not featured, but after watching it, I know that his important work could have been damaged, just like they framed Budd Hopkins' work in a way that makes it easy to dismiss.  Perhaps not being part of this UFO special protected Dr. Mack's work for the future. 

The other issue that was re-framed was the issue of government ‘conspiracy’.  When people think of a ‘shadow government’, most people think about evil greedy people who run the world, with the intent of creating a new world order of complete control through fear and torture, etc.  Visuals of such a new world order create very fearful imagery since this “secret government “ is alleged by whistleblowers to have ‘disposed’ of people and acted against the U.S. constitution for decades.  Thus, many crimes would have been committed since the 1947 Roswell UFO crash to keep it all secret.   But if references are debunked about Roswell, it helps discredit the issue of a secret government which takes away the fear and paranoia of such an organization for the mainstream person.  If scientists and investors thought they could get killed for investigating the issue of UFOs, fear would prevent them from getting involved. 

This is how over promoting the conspiracy frame of reference could work against those who want to see the issue taken seriously by the mainstream.  If a strong case of conspiracy is put forth to the mainstream, fear will insure that most people will keep their distance and not want to get involved with such issues.  Under the conspiracy frame of reference, only a few courageous Souls will take part and want to be involved, despite the risks that they perceive, whether real or not real.  Paranoia will most likely be their way of life, unless they have a strong spiritual foundation.

If we look for silver linings, one way to look at the ABC Primetime special is that by not framing the UFO issue through a fearful conspiracy frame, Jennings opened the door for more scientists to study the question instead of being immobilized by fear.  To look at the issue through a gradual exopolitical disclosure perspective might make one feel more positive about what ABC’s UFO show accomplished. 

Exopolitical Disclosure suggests that disclosure should be done in a gradual, sequential and responsible way that considers humanity’s many worldviews such as religious, economic, scientific, psychological, etc.  This might be necessary when dealing with the masses to avoid shocking the collective consciousness with too much of an abrupt revelation that shocks current paradigms.   

Perhaps what ABC did was to create an opportunity to build from a fresh start instead of from the perspective of fear of an evil ‘shadow government’ that assassinates people such as John F. Kennedy, but from the perspective that we are not alone in our fantastic universe, that Unidentified Flying Objects are real and require more scientific research since we don’t officially know for sure what intelligence is behind them.    

To promote his February 24th show, Jennings appeared on the Jon Stewart comedy show "The Daily Show" on February 23rd.  It was an excellent interview that added much needed humor to this issue that can sometimes be so serious because of its profound implications.  Jennings then took the opportunity to reframe the ‘shadow government’ issue and joked about a letter that his son received from a blogger focused on conspiracies.  He read the letter on the air and it suggested that he made a deal with the "Shadow Government" by framing the JFK assassination in his earlier special as the work of a 'lone gunman' so then the ‘shadow government’ would allow him to be the one out of the three major networks to reveal what historians will see as the most important story in the history of mankind: we are not alone.  Here is the transcript below:
 
"You know my son... and he sent me this today because everybody has a different reason why they think we did this and he picked this up from one of our newly brilliant bloggers.  (Reading the letter) "A while back Jennings did a special on the JFK assassination.  He tried to convince us that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in the face of an overwhelming number of skeptics, I might add.   What if a deal was cut with ABC and Peter Jennings that he did this JFK documentary for the "shadow government" (laughter in the crowd.  Jennings adds: "I love this serious thinkers").  This “shadow government” that still denies there was more than one gunman then they would let him be the first anchorman of the big three to start the disclosure process.  It would be very tempting for him to want to the focal point of the greatest revelation in the history of mankind."

The letter that his son allegedly received seems to have been used through a humorous frame of reference to perhaps send a message to those in the alleged ‘shadow government’ that as disclosure unfolds, those involved who have been breaking the constitution and the law will not be exposed.  Or who knows, perhaps it was Jennings’ way to reveal, indirectly, a deal that he made. 

Those who did not believe in UFOs before Jennings’ show might now be more open to consider the question from a more scientific perspective, though discounting Roswell.  What does this mean?  It means that there is an opportunity to move towards disclosure without cornering those who have allegedly been guilty of past crimes, and acted against the U.S. constitution.  If those who have been involved in the cover up feel that they would be prosecuted for their past crimes might continue to create new crimes to hide past crimes, with no end in sight. 

If the full truth all at once was the solution, spiritually evolved benevolent ETs and other ‘energies’ could have made it available to us a long time ago.  Or perhaps they already did indirectly reveal the truth to us through our religious scriptures and other more current sources such as formerly classified CIA / military remote viewing data and some channeled data, amongst other sources.  Perhaps information must be released in a way that allows members of our civilization to evolve spiritually, as we move away from conflicts and wars. 

Let’s remember that we are dealing with the most classified subject in the history of the USA.   The world is not yet a peaceful place and we must also not forget that we need to resolve our international conflicts as we move towards disclosure.  How can we get along with ‘off-planet beings’ when we can’t get along with each other?  Personal spiritual transformations must go hand in hand if disclosure is to be successful and avoid creating more problems on Earth.   

If we focus on the latest NASA and the European Space Agency discoveries, we notice that there has been a lot of information in the last year about planet Mars, synchronistically, just after President Bush announced his Mars Space Exploration Vision in January 2004.  Scientists now know that Mars used to have a salty ocean, that ice exists today on Mars, that there is methane and ammonia in the Martian atmosphere, which indicates that life might exist as you read this article.  Further information is detailed later in this article.

Disclosure for the masses and mainstream might end up taking place through discovering that there is still today life on planet Mars.  This seems like a logical sequential way to slowly awaken the collective consciousness that there is life out there, and has been for millions of years!  Disclosure can be an empowering and positive experience for the human race, instead of fueling every imaginable conspiracy theory and fear of aliens or secret government.  The truth is that we live in a fantastic Universe filled with life and most people seek to make their dreams come true and seek happiness regardless of their belief systems, whether they are part of a secret society or not. 

In Alfred Webre's book “Exopolitics”, he talks about the need for a 10 year period of public education about life in the Universe, through all institutions, mass media, science, etc.  A Decade of Contact is a gradual and sequential process, where information is revealed to the masses in a gradual and psychologically safe way.  For those who have a more advanced knowledge, he suggests that we put our attention on a Star Dreams Initiative which is a public interest diplomacy project proposal with Off-Planet Cultures.

Remote viewers who were involved with the military and the CIA have confirmed, scientifically, that there exist data suggesting life on Mars.  Some have done more advanced research and have acquired data suggesting that humanoid beings exist on planet Mars.  Remote viewing exercises by Prof. Courtney Brown, PhD of Emory University,  report the possible existence of a present Martian Off-Planet Culture, living under the surface of Mars, as well as on Earth in underground bases in the United States of America, and in intentional rural colonies in South America. This Martian culture reportedly may be survivors of a Martian-Solar System cataclysm in the distant past. 

Remote viewing data also suggest that Advanced Grey ETs have rescued Martians from their cataclysm perhaps millions of years ago (while dinosaurs were roaming the Earth) and have genetically re-engineered them and brought them forward in time to today.  One wonders if human beings have also been genetically re-engineered over the last thousands of years or longer, as there is evidence of this today with the so called ‘Star Children’ or “Indigo Children’ based on many researcher’s data. 

As far fetched as this data is and as far fetched as time travel also seems to be, let us not forget that the idea that UFOs can travel faster than the speed of Light is also farfetched.  Discovering that we live in a Universe made up of many dimensions is also farfetched.  The concept of remote viewing (formerly top secret CIA/ Military), which allows us to gather data in the past, present and future, from any location in the Universe, is also very farfetched, but scientifically proven to be accurate.  Being alive on this planet during the most unique time in all of human history could also be considered farfetched.  What are the odds that we would be living now, instead of having lived thousands of years ago?  What are the odds that one would be reading this article right now about the most farfetched issues of our time?   It almost feels like there’s a spiritual reason why some of us are here today and involved in this work.   

Dr. Courtney Brown's release of remote viewing data that Mars was once a planet that was hospitable to life and still hosts life today was first ridiculed by many when his book Cosmic Voyage was published in 1996. Though many people dismiss it as a coincidence, what has stunned some sceptics is that since the publication of his first book, the following is now becoming self-evident:

1. Scientists have discovered that Mars once had saltwater oceans http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/3560867.stm

2. Scientists have discovered that microbial life once existed on Mars as evidenced by a Mars meteor http://www2.jpl.nasa.gov/snc/nasa1.html  that has impacted Earth  (also:http://archives.cnn.com/2000/TECH/space/05/25/mars.meteorite/)

3. Scientists have discovered both methane http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/3577551.stm and ammonia http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/3896335.stm in the current atmosphere on Mars. Sciences demonstrates that such gases can only result from current life or from recent volcanic activity. Currently, scientists have found no active volcanoes on Mars.

4. That Ice Packs on Mars Suggest Present Life Possible based on European scientists: http://www.space.com/scienceastronomy/050222_mars_ice.html

5. In February 2005, NASA researchers claimed that they had evidence of present life on mars: www.space.com/scienceastronomy/mars_life_050216.html

6. 25 percent of 250 Mars science experts now believe there could be life on Mars today:  http://www.space.com/scienceastronomy/mars_believe_050225.html

Ultimately, only time will tell if Dr. Courtney Brown and the several CIA/Military remote viewers are accurate that there is intelligent life on Mars today.  We will then need to understand what it means within the context of events that have unfolded in our Galaxy.  We will need to then be clear on what we need to do with this revelation, the greatest revelation in the history of humanity. 

One can read more about this issue in Part IV of Webre’s new book “Exopolitics – Politics, Government and Law in the Universe”.  I feel that it frames the discovery of life on Mars in a higher spiritual context and frames it in a way that allows us to better understand why we are now being engaged by off-planet cultures  (UFOs) seemingly from all over the universe based on testimony of contactees.  Higher intelligences seem to want us to know that there is a society out there and that we must reach a certain spiritual maturity in order to align with them.  Webre’s book focuses on global problems that we face and also shows us the direction that we can take to resolve these problems so we move towards reconnecting with Universe Society.
Looking at life on Mars from an exopolitical perspective will be important and potentially vital for decision makers once the announcement is made official that there is intelligent life on planet Mars. Ideally, disclosure that we are not alone should be used as leverage to create more spirituality and love in the world instead of fear, hate and anger against a secret government that has been lying for decades or hate or anger against aliens who seemingly abduct people against their will.  There is more to this story. 

Remote viewing data indirectly supported by many researchers such as Dr. Janet Colli, Dr. Richard Boylan, the late Dr. John Mack and others, further explain that what some call ‘abductions’ is part of an ancient galactic spiritual genetic plan for Earth to help us evolve spiritually, and to help greys also evolve spiritually towards better connecting to God/Source, or the Creator of the Universe, also defined as the vibration of Divine Love.  Quantum physicists explain that all is vibration in our Universe even that which feels solid is not solid but vibrating particles.  Our physical bodies are nothing but vibrating particles and we may feel solid, but we are pure vibration.  Spiritual experiences from the reports of doctors involved with worldwide Spiritual Emergence Networks are often described as sacred or Divine vibrations or Divine Energy.  If Grey ETs indeed genetically re-engineered Martians, it only makes sense that humans on Earth have also gone through the same process for eons, mostly when scientific data supports this possibility. 

Ultimately, if humans don’t move towards becoming more loving and more spiritual, we will self-destroy, with or without disclosure that we are not alone in the Universe, even if we are given access to clean technology.  Our materialistic worldview has moved us towards destroying forests which create the precious air that we breath and has moved us towards polluting this same air in ways that are unprecedented because of billions of us burning oil.  Most people use their creative abilities to create technologies and devices that destroy our world and ourselves, though they might make us feel good in the short term.  We find it acceptable to create weapons while we don’t find it acceptable to create new devices that could replace our addiction to burning oil.  With global warming and climate change, unless we change ourselves and change our ways, scientists tell us that our race will not be around to talk about and debate the issue of life in the Universe or any other issue in another 100 years. 

What can prevent us from self-destruction is disclosure that is leveraged in a way that creates a better world, not a worst world filled with fear.  Peter Jennings opened the door for further scientific research in regards to UFOs and in regards to the understanding of other dimensions through Michio Kaku's interview.  Jennings gave some breathing room to those who have the secrets, with the opportunity for a fresh start by inviting the public to ask the U.S. and world governments to scientifically investigate UFOs since it wasn’t properly done in the past with Project Blue Book.  He may have opened the mind of some skeptics with this process and has also made it socially acceptable for other journalists to now report UFOs and talk about this issue that has been ‘taboo’ for decades with most journalists.  This could be a major breakthrough that transforms the next 10 years and allows us to move towards solutions. 

A wise man once said to focus 5% of our attention on the problem and 95% of our attention on the solutions.  Let us follow what we each feel is the solution, what we each bring to the table and trust that more advanced and wiser ET beings would not be wasting their time in engaging us if they felt that we did not have a chance to survive what Gregg Braden calls the Shift of the Ages.  This is a time of opportunity that all religions and prophets have talked about and we can create the future that we choose by being proactive and positively influencing the right people to move forward with solutions. 

Let’s create a future that leaves a legacy of star dreams to future generations as detailed in Alfred Webre’s book “Exopolitics” and let's make the best of all the things that come our way...

UN Outer Space Office Background

THE UNITED NATIONS ROLE IN SPACE

The United Nations has been a forum for international discussions relating to space activities and the environment for many years. But in the last few years, like many other organizations, it has
paid increasing attention to the need to protect the environment, including the space environment.

The work of the United Nations relating to space activities and the environment focuses on the promotion of international cooperation in the use of space technology for monitoring the terrestrial environmental; and working to ensure that space activities do not themselves cause damage to the space or Earth environment.

The efforts of the United Nations to promote international cooperation in space fall into two rather different categories. One is the negotiation of international political and legal agreements. For
these efforts, the Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space and its Legal Subcommittee are the primary forums, and the major participants are the space powers. The developing countries with
space programmes, including Brazil, China and India, are playing an increasingly active role in the international policy debates, in particular with respect to the space and Earth environments.

The second category of United Nations space activities is the provision of technical assistance to developing countries, mainly through the Programme on Space Applications. This Programme is
overseen by the Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space, and the major participants are, of course, the developing countries. Efforts to promote the use of space technology for monitoring
and protecting the terrestrial environment fall mainly into this category.

The United Nations monitoring role has focused on education and training for developing countries. The Office for Outer Space Affairs, through its Programme on Space Applications, organizes short seminars, workshops and training courses and arranges for fellowships for long-term education through institutions in countries with advanced facilities. Since its inception in 1970, this Programme has concentrated its efforts on Remote Sensing of the Earth, Life Sciences, Space Transportation Systems, Planetary Exploration, and Astronomy.

The fields of planetary exploration and astronomy are commonly subsumed under the term Basic Space Science.

Towards a Decade of Contact: Preparing for re-integration into Universe society

by Alfred Lambremont Webre, JD, MEd

VANCOUVER, B.C. – In the late 1980s, I was asked to meet with a Gallup family heir who wished to explore a collaborative venture for a public opinion poll of "transformational" attitudes worldwide. Before our meeting, I half expected a dull, cautious businessman-bureaucrat. Instead, in sauntered in a brilliant imagination, a bright intellect, with the twinkle of cosmic change. This Gallup seemed more like a utopian resident of Sir Francis Bacon’s New Atlantis (some interpret Bacon’s unfinished work as an allegory about Earth’s coming integration with a larger Universe society), rather than the stereotypical captain of corporate America. That meeting was my first expansive Gallup encounter. 

A decade or so later, I once again encountered an expansive Gallup. This time my encounter was not with a scion, but with a Gallup public opinion poll. The subject matter of the poll related to my research on Exopolitics, the study of politics, government, and law in the Universe. I found the Gallup organization had compiled a public opinion poll that illuminated key terrestrial dynamics of the study of governmental structures and political processes in the Universe.

Yes, you read that sentence correctly. It did say "key terrestrial dynamics of the study of governmental structures and political processes in the Universe." Our terrestrial law of Space now ends at the upper atmosphere, or at best at the Moon. Everything beyond those near-earth orbits is, legally speaking, the Void. No living entity or system of government or law is presumed to exist there. Human law assumes that no supra-human politics or regulation exists in outer or dimensional Space.

Enter Exopolitics
Exopolitics, as a discipline for understanding Universe society through its politics and government, may turn our dominant view of the Universe upside down and inside out. As exopolitics posits, the truest conception of our human circumstance may be that we are on an isolated planet in the midst of a populated, evolving, highly organized inter-planetary, inter-galactic, multi-dimensional Universe society.
From an exopolitical perspective, Earth only appears to be isolated because we are in intentional quarantine, imposed by the technology and justice of structured, rational Universe society. We may be isolated from the rest of Universe society as the result of a formal, Universe governmental and political process.

Are we as a planet on the verge of being re-integrated into Universe society? That’s very likely. The signs are all around us. In fact, as the Gallup organization polls suggests, contemporary human attitudes about our populated Universe may themselves constitute one of the main signs of our pending reintegration into Universe society.

As with other historical transformations of human society, politics may be a key mechanism for navigating Earth’s integration into Universe society. Politics is a process by which the interests of individuals, groups, and institutions will mediate, compromise, and create a collective future. Politics, however, does not end at Earth’s edge. Politics is a process that is universal. Earth’s integration into Universe society is occurring as part of a definable political process within Universe government. That process is part of the discipline we can term exopolitics.

The Exopolitical Majority
Does the exopolitical version of our Universe reality sound vaguely familiar to you? Does it raise a tingle along the back of your neck? Does it have the ring of truth? Or do you react to it as flaky and unscientific? Well, you can compare your own attitudes about exopolitical reality in the results of a very significant public opinion poll by, yes, the Gallup organization. This poll has profound exopolitical implications. This Gallup poll is almost like a "tracking poll" for extraterrestrial politics.

Each of our personal opinions about the reality of an extraterrestrial presence on Earth now falls along a spectrum of public opinion that has already been scientifically measured by the Gallup organization. A 1996 Gallup poll showed that 72 percent of the U.S. adult population believes there is some form of extraterrestrial life. Fully 45 percent of the adult population believes the Earth is visited by extraterrestrial life.

By extension, we may assume that public opinion about extraterrestrial visitation may be roughly the same in the other regions of the planet. The proportion of world youth that likewise believe extraterrestrials have visited Earth may be even higher than the adult population. These polls, I am sure, will be measured in the not too distant future, if they have not been measured already.

The Gallup poll now shows that nearly 100 million adult humans in the United States – 45 percent of its adult population – believe that Extraterrestrial civilization has visited or visits Earth.

Let’s explore the political dimensions of this finding. One hundred million adults is approximately the number of U.S. adults who vote in a U.S. Presidential election! The U.S. Federal Election Commission reports that 96,277,634 persons voted in the 1996 Presidential general election.

We can assume that as a whole these 100 million adults aren’t delusional, mind-controlled, or brainwashed. Our poll population can intuitively filter out those extraterrestrial "visitations" which are staged secret psychological warfare operations by human military-intelligence agencies. A more recent poll shows that 70 percent of U.S. adults believe the U.S. government is covering up an extraterrestrial presence.

By the very premises of public opinion polls, these 100 million extraterrestrial-sensitive humans are responding to something they believe is true. Down deep in their intuition they hold that extraterrestrials have visited Earth. Philosopher Immanuel Kant would call this perfectly valid intuitive knowledge. In short, human intuition is reality-oriented enough to filter out false propaganda from Universe reality.

What are the implications of the finding that more adult U.S. citizens believe extraterrestrials visit Earth than vote in a U.S. Presidential election? Public opinion polls are prime tools in terrestrial politics. Suppose a public opinion poll were to show that 100 million U.S. adults were favor of a particular type of health care or social security plan. You can safely bet that governments and politicians (especially at election time!) would be jumping to meet these poll-driven political demands.

By contrast, a valid public opinion poll showing that 100 million U.S. adults believe there is an extraterrestrial presence is not driving any political outcomes. No mainstream politicians have defined extraterrestrial presence as a live political or public policy issue. No sizable number of citizens of any terrestrial nation are moved to call upon their local politicians or the political process to connect with the extraterrestrial presence, or study it, or even acknowledge it officially. Why is this anomaly occurring in politics and government?

You could say that a major reason for the disconnection between terrestrial politics and the extraterrestrial issue is cultural and contextual. Our modern human culture has not yet placed these issues – the extraterrestrial presence, terrestrial politics, and Universe society – in the same context. Our "mainstream" collective human mind literally cannot now see how governments and politics might be connected to an extraterrestrial initiative.

But cultural context is not the whole cause. Public interest research shows that a determined covert terrestrial network may be attempting to "engineer" human attitudes toward the extraterrestrial initiative, and in turn, toward Universe society. Two principal tools of this attitude engineering are official secrecy about actual extraterrestrial contact, and a raging information war against the extraterrestrial presence.
These quasi-official, secret "black operations" networks appear to be hosted largely in the anglophile countries of United States, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada. Coincidentally, these anti-extraterrestrial networks are in the countries that manage "Echelon," a secret Internet surveillance operation. 

The recent unofficial three-year COMETA study formally suggested the hypothesis of an extraterrestrial presence as viable based on the evidence. The senior French scientists, along with former space and Air Force officials, who completed the COMETA study may be taking sides in the information war. Whether consciously or not, functionally they act as informal diplomatic allies of Universe society. The French government itself has sued the Echelon countries for industrial espionage in violation of the European Union. Thus there may be the makings of a diplomatic divide in the global anti-Extraterrestrial information war!

The anti-Extraterrestrial information war has been in place since the early 1950s. This war has no terrestrial political sanction, has not been approved by any constitutional body, and violates the norms of international law. The illegal information war is, on analysis, a principal exopolitical block to Earth’s fuller integration with Universe society.

The Disclosure Movement
Not surprisingly, a public disclosure movement is emerging in North America and worldwide. Its focus is to force credible disclosure of official contact, and to stop the information war against the extraterrestrial presence. Disclosure movements have longstanding political and constitutional roots in the U.S. and elsewhere. Public interest groups have often used the political and constitutional process to make public and stop secret unconstitutional wars and programs. Such was the case in the Watergate cover-up, the Iran-Contra drug-weapons scheme, and the war in Central America (which killed more than a million persons, with questionable constitutional authorization).

Public disclosure of extraterrestrial contact and of the information war is a nexus point where terrestrial politics and exopolitics meet. To mix many metaphors, disclosure is "where the rubber meets the road." Public disclosure is how exopolitics acquires "traction" in human awareness and terrestrial politics. Disclosure is the procedural antecedent to full, sustained, institutional contact with an extraterrestrial (and multidimensional) Universe society.

Televised public legislative hearings on extraterrestrial scientific and public policy issues are a key strategic option for triggering official disclosure. The political and mass-educational impacts of an open, uncensored legislative hearing before a bipartisan, gender-balanced panel of U.S. Congresspersons could be profound.

Televised legislative and educational panels in different regions of the Earth could follow. France, Brazil and Japan are fruitful of venues for public disclosure hearings that readily come to mind. Hearings in these countries may be even more open than hearings in the U.S., the prime venue of the information war. The U.S., with only five percent of the world’s population, may be serving as unwitting host for the brunt of the anti-extraterrestrial information war.

Official legislative hearings can create a credible forum for high-impact disclosure testimony and evidence. The prime function of televised public disclosure is global public education about an extraterrestrial presence. There are many concurrent disclosure activities that could provide valuable testimony and evidence for official hearings. These include high-level French participants in the three-year COMETA study, as well as witnesses in Washington, D.C.-based CSETI’s disclosure project (where I recently submitted testimony on a 1977 Carter White House extraterrestrial communication study).

Exopolitics: The "Alien" vs. Extraterrestrial Distinction
The information war is designed to sow confused, negative human attitudes about extraterrestrial reality. Many "alien abductions" may in reality be classic psychological warfare operations, and a phenomenon of the information war. Abduction experiences may be a mixture of: 1) growth-oriented dimensional experiences of an archetypal nature, as described by Harvard Professor John Mack; 2) psychological operations by various sides in the information war; 3) MILAB or terrestrial military-intelligence operations, mimicking "alien abductions" as part of the information war (thus, many abductions may be "psy-war" phenomena of the anti-extraterrestrial information war).

From an exopolitical perspective, I use the term "extraterrestrial" to refer to organized Universe society as it exists in interstellar and multidimensional space. Extraterrestrial societies are the participants in the exopolitical process. Exopolitics is a fundamental organizing, mediating, social, and governmental process in our interplanetary and interdimensional space. Exopolitics is how a highly populated and regulated Universe governs itself.

Exopolitics is designed to elicit and illustrate basic principles and dynamics of politics, government, and law in the Universe.

Towards a Decade of Contact: A Vision
How can the human population get beyond the anti-extraterrestrial conceptual traps our institutions and terrestrial leaders keep constructing for us? One way is to build a new, participatory exopolitical process whose purpose is to foment and structure humankind’s preparedness to enter interplanetary society.
This participatory process is the Decade of Contact. As a society, we can dedicate a ten-year period of human education and community action around integrating Earth into Universe society. The Decade of Contact is both a process and a public attitude. Extraterrestrial contact is our doorway into re-integration with Universe society. Extraterrestrial contact is an interactive process, both with our fellow humans and with Universe society itself. Just how many decades it will take to re-establish working contact with the organized Universe seems to be partially in our own hands.

The Decade of Contact is simple and straightforward. Any individual, group, age group, institution, nation, or government can participate. Participants in the Decade of Contact commit to transform their lives, their institutional focus, and resources to re-establishing integration with organized interplanetary society. Rejoining Universe society is an exopolitical process, and will happen only as political momentum gathers at the personal, local, regional, and global levels. The process of Universe integration may take time in lift-off, like a space vehicle starting its long journey with slow lift-off from Earth.

Mobilizing the human species to integrate with Universe society will take place in many concurrent ways. A key task is the gathering of information, research, and scientific and educational resources about Universe society. Our dominant terrestrial model of reality is functionally a legacy from the Middle Ages. Our collective new knowledge base must be assembled from an exopolitical context.

There are also important cultural components to the Decade of Contact, as human awareness builds to a critical mass. These include political movements, public events, concerts, music, art, and media to celebrate Universe society. Our reunion with Universe society is a ground of our basic human rights. The contact process transforms our civilization from within, from a terrestrial culture to a Universal one.
Transformation of human society will occur when we reach a Universe-sensitive critical mass. With approximately 45 percent of Earth’s population now extraterrestrial-conscious, can critical mass be far behind?

Futurist Proposes Extraterrestrial Guest Worker Program

Wednesday, April 19, 2006
VICTORIA, B.C. (Wireless Flash) – U.S. officials are proposing a guest worker program for undocumented immigrant workers and now a futurist in Victoria, British Columbia, would like to do the same for extraterrestrials.

http://www.flashnews.com/

Former Director of Proposed Carter White House Extraterrestrial Communication Project to Present New Initiative at Crop Circles Film Screening in Victoria, Canada

The controversial documentary film “Star Dreams” explains that there have been almost 11,000 recorded crop circles worldwide since 1980, many of them baffling prominent scientists. A new version of “Star Dreams” includes the latest crop circles and will be shown publicly in Victoria, BC on May 6th, 2006. After the film, Alfred Webre will present the Star Dreams Initiative (SDI), the evolution of his work as former Director of the proposed 1977 Carter White House extraterrestrial communication project. The proposal was prepared through his work as futurist at Stanford Research Institute (SRI) and it came about as a result of Carter’s interest in the subject after he saw a UFO in 1969.

Victoria, BC (PRWEB) April 14, 2006 -- A controversial film on crop circles that was critically acclaimed in dozens of cities across Canada has been updated and is returning to Victoria, BC.

The new version of "Star Dreams -- Exploring the Mystery of the Crop Circles" by filmmaker Robert Nichol, includes the new 2005 crop circles and will be shown publicly on Saturday May 6th, at 7pm, at the Victoria Truth Centre (http://www.truthcentre.com/).

After the film, Alfred Webre will be in attendance to present the Star Dreams Initiative (SDI). SDI is the evolution of his work as former director of the proposed 1977 Carter White House extraterrestrial communication project. The Carter proposal was prepared through his work as futurist at Stanford Research Institute (SRI).

Carter became interested in the subject of life in the Universe after seeing a UFO in 1969, as he confirmed in a January 2006 interview with GQ Magazine (http://men.style.com/gq/features/full?id=content_4072&pageNum=4).

"The goal of the 1977 project was to fill the knowledge gap on this subject but was terminated because of the political climate at the time", explains Webre.

As a Yale Law School graduate and International Director of the Institute for Cooperation in Space (ICIS), Webre brings notable credentials to a field that has been ridiculed for many years.   

Webre also says that Robert Nichol’s film on crop circles will help prepare people’s mindset for what he will be revealing after the film during his presentation.

Nichol’s updated documentary includes new interviews with researchers such as an investigative reporter, a Native American artist, and a former NASA consultant.   

The featured investigative reporter is Emmy Award-winning TV producer, Linda Moulton Howe. She explains that some crop circles in the U.S. have been worth studying because they show biochemical and biophysical changes that cannot be made by hoaxers using boards and strings.

During his film interview, renowned Native American artist Rod Bearcloud focuses on the spiritual meaning of crop circles. He believes that they are sent to us by the "Star Nation people", known in our western culture as extraterrestrials.

Native tribes worldwide relate that humanity has been helped by "Star Nation people" throughout our evolution.

At an unprecedented June 1996 conference in Yankton Sioux Reservation in South Dakota, indigenous tribal leaders from around the world gathered with western ET/UFO researchers and shared their spiritual knowledge of "Star Nation people" (http://www.star-knowledge.net//).

"They came because they had seen signs occurring now which had been predicted by ancient prophecies", as per psychologist Dr. Richard Boylan who was at the conference. "These signs signified to them that the time had come to speak openly about their most closely-held oral traditions. These traditions include their origin from the stars".

During the film interview with Richard Hoagland, the audience will learn why evidence of an ancient civilization on planet Mars has been concealed by NASA. Hoagland was a former consultant to NASA and a science advisor to Walter Cronkite of CBS News during the historic Apollo Missions to the Moon.

Nichol’s film has been critically acclaimed by many daily newspapers across Canada. The Victoria Time Colonist called the film "fascinating, visually breathtaking" and the Toronto Star described it as "Stunning."

Despite raving audiences and great reviews, Nichol has encountered his share of skeptics in the past years who believe that all crop circles are hoaxed and made by people flattening crops with boards.

Nichol has concluded that only a minority of crop circles are hoaxed. He explains that skeptics often ignore the more complex formations with anomalies that defy our current scientific understanding.

Though science is not the main focus of Nichol’s film, he says that skeptics who believe that science can put an end to the controversy of crop circles might be surprised to learn the results of scientific studies.

As per a 2002 article published in the Providence Journal, prominent scientists were unable to explain how pure iron was first melted and then embedded in some crops without destroying the plant (http://www.projo.com/blogs/shenews/stories/gold_print.cgi.html).

They determined that intense heat had been involved and administered in millisecond bursts. Iron melts at about 2,700 degrees Fahrenheit, which should have incinerated the plant, but it did not.

The article also explains that the most definitive and revealing scientific study ever done on the mystery of crop circles was funded in 1999 by the late billionaire philanthropist Laurance Rockefeller.

Rockefeller funded the Massachusetts-based BLT Research Team, directed by Nancy Talbott. They gathered hundreds of plant and soil samples from a crop circle formation in Edmonton, Canada.

"The plants had both elongated nodes (the "knuckles" along the stem) and expulsion cavities, and the soils contained the peculiar iron spheres, indicating a genuine formation", reports the Providence Journal.

The Rockefeller funded study concludes that "it is possible that we are observing the effects of a new or as yet undiscovered energy source".

The BLT team also reported increased growth rate of formation seedlings, as opposed to controls, in seeds from crop which was mature when crop circle formed.

In addition, some plants were found bent at a 90 degree angle and in some formations, plants were interlaced in complex designs. For more information, see: http://www.bltresearch.com/index.html

Scientific data eliminates the hoax hypothesis for the specific crop circles that have been studied, and leave many questions unanswered.

Nichol explains that there is a consensus among some crop circle researchers that a higher intelligence is not only involved in making most crop circles, but that they are actually communicating to the human race at this time of great turmoil on planet earth.

After many interviews with researchers and experiencers, Nichol concludes that crop circles can help us rise to a higher dimension of consciousness in a way that broadens humanity’s understanding that we are not alone in the universe.

This filmmaker’s perspective is shared by Alfred Webre who will be presenting the Star Dreams Initiative (SDI) after the film.

Webre has concluded that the Earth has been under quarantine for eons from the more spiritually evolved "Off-Planet Cultures" (OPCs), in part because of humanity's war-like ways.

He believes that we can help leave a legacy of peace and hope to our children and all future human generations by taking specific steps to end the quarantine.

Webre’s views are detailed in his book "Exopolitics – Politics, Government and Law in the Universe", and have received the support of prominent individuals such as Hon. Paul Hellyer, former Defense Minister of Canada and Dr. Bryan O’Leary, former NASA astronaut.

"Much of this book rings true", writes Dr. O’Leary. "Certainly, our civilization cannot go on as we have. We will need all the help we can get to lift ourselves out of tyranny, genocide, and ecocide. So why not reach out toward those who are clearly more wise?"

Webre has given exopolitics presentations around the world from Hawaii to The Netherlands, Australia to Washington DC, and for the first time, will do a 30 minute presentation of the Star Dreams Initiative (SDI) in Victoria, BC, on Saturday May 6th, 2006, following Robert Nichol’s 90 minute film.

The event is organized by Angels of Avalon (380-1721) where tickets are available in advance for $12 or at the door for $15. It takes place at the Victoria Truth Centre (www.truthcentre.com). Doors open at 6:30pm and the film starts at 7pm.

space.com-ET Visitors:Scientists See High Likelihood

ET Visitors: Scientists See High Likelihood By Leonard David space.com Senior Space Writer posted: 14 January 2005 06:47 am ET

Decades ago, it was physicist Enrico Fermi who pondered the issue of extraterrestrial civilizations with fellow theorists over lunch, generating the famous quip: "Where are they?" That question later became central to debates about the cosmological census count of other star folk and possible extraterrestrial (ET) visitors from afar. Fermi’s brooding on the topic was later labeled "Fermi’s paradox".

It is a well-traveled tale from the 1950’s when the scientist broached the subject in discussions with colleagues in Los Alamos, New Mexico. Thoughts regarding the probability of earthlike planets, the rise of highly advanced civilizations "out there", and interstellar travel -- these remain fodder for trying to respond to Fermi’s paradox even today.

Now a team of American scientists note that recent astrophysical discoveries suggest that we should find ourselves in the midst of one or more extraterrestrial civilizations. Moreover, they argue it is a mistake to reject all UFO reports since some evidence for the theoretically-predicted extraterrestrial visitors might just be found there.

The researchers make their proposal in the January/February 2005 issue of the Journal of the British Interplanetary Society (JBIS). Curious situation Pick up any good science magazine and you’re sure to see the latest in head-scratching ideas about superstring theory, wormholes, or the stretching of spacetime itself. Meanwhile, extrasolar planetary detection is on the verge of becoming mundane.

"We are in the curious situation today that our best modern physics and astrophysics theories predict that we should be experiencing extraterrestrial visitation, yet any possible evidence of such lurking in the UFO phenomenon is scoffed at within our scientific community," contends astrophysicist Bernard Haisch. Haisch along with physicists James Deardorff, Bruce Maccabee and Harold Puthoff make their case in the JBIS article: "Inflation-Theory Implications for Extraterrestrial Visitation".

The scientists point to two key discoveries made by Australian astronomers and reported last year that there is a "galactic habitable zone" in our Milky Way Galaxy. And more importantly that Earth’s own star, the Sun, is relatively young in comparison to the average star in this zone -- by as much as a billion years.

Therefore, the researchers explain in their JBIS article that an average alien civilization would be far more advanced and have long since discovered Earth. Additionally, other research work on the supposition underlying the Big Bang -- known as the theory of inflation -- shores up the prospect, they advise, that our world is immersed in a much larger extraterrestrial civilization. Point-to-point distances Given billion-year advanced physics, might not buzzing around the galaxy be possible?

Even today superstring theory hypothesizes other dimensions... which could be habitable Universes adjacent to our own, the researchers speculate. It might even be possible to get around the speed of light limit by moving in and out of these dimensions.

"What we have done is somewhat of a breakthrough," Haisch told SPACE.com. "We have pulled together various recent discoveries and theoretical issues that collectively point to the strong probability that we should be in the midst of one or more huge extraterrestrial civilizations," he said. Haisch said that superstring dimensions and wormhole and spacetime stretching possibilities address the "can't get here from there" objection often argued in view of the interstellar, point-to-point distances involved.

Also, diffusion models predict that even a single civilization could spread across the Galaxy in a tiny fraction of the age of the Galaxy - even at sub-light speeds, he said. ET signature in the data

Can the scientific community bring itself to consider any evidence coming from mysterious sightings of strange things by the public?

In large measure, the scientific community seemingly has eyed ET visitation as far from being serious stuff to cogitate over. Why so? "The dismissal has several causes, all reinforcing each other," Haisch responded.

"Most of the observations are probably misinterpretations, delusions and hoaxes. I have seen people get confused by Venus or even Sirius when it is flashing colors low in the sky under the right conditions.

Having been turned off by this, most scientists never bother to look any further, and so are simply blissfully ignorant that there may be more to it," he said.

Deardorff, the lead author of the JBIS article, points out in a press statement: "It would take some humility for the scientific community to suspend its judgment and take at least some of the high quality reports seriously enough to investigate…but I hope we can bring ourselves to do that."

According to Haisch, there is a motivation not just for scientific tolerance of the UFO issue, but a strong scientific prediction that there ought to be some genuine ET signature in the data.

"This potentially changes the relationship of the UFO phenomenon to science in a significant way. It takes away the ‘not invented here’ prejudice, pointing out that a ‘yes’ to  ET visitation is exactly what side our current physics and astrophysics theories would come down on as the most likely situation," Haisch concluded.

Evidence of Children’s UFO and Extraterrestrial Encounters to be Presented at a United Nations Affiliated Conference in Montreal

Ma_nws_1_6

Wed Feb 22, 7:00 AM ET

Perth, Australia (PRWEB) February 22, 2006 -- A former registered nurse who has worked with hundreds of clients, including many children, will be revealing evidence of their encounters with extraterrestrial beings at an upcoming conference in Montreal, Canada.

After a decade of research as a professional counselor and clinical hypnotherapist, Australia’s Mary Rodwell says that there is now enough evidence to conclude that these “beings” appear to come from other planets and other dimensions parallel to our own.

She will be making her presentation at the 31st annual conference of the International Institute of Integral Human Sciences (IIIHS) taking place in Montreal May 5th to 14th, 2006.

The IIIHS is a non-profit organization affiliated with the United Nations Department of Public Information. It serves over 10,000 general members and students from many nations towards the convergence of new sciences with spirituality and universal human values, creating inter-religious and inter-cultural understanding for world peace.

Rodwell will be one of more than 60 speakers to address the IIIHS, with other distinguished professionals such as medical doctors, psychiatrists, physicists, scientists, psychologists, spiritual leaders, and even a former NASA astronaut (www.iiihs.org).

She is a co-founder of the Australian Close Encounter Resource Network (ACERN), vice-President of Star Kids Project Ltd., founded by Dr. Richard Boylan, and the author of “Awakening: How Extraterrestrial Contact can Transform Your Life”.

Rodwell says that after being involved with over 1,000 “experiencers” (alien abductees) nothing had prepared her for what she discovered.

“My clients include both adults and children who exhibit transformative changes such as telepathy, clairvoyance and healing as they become more spiritually aware and begin to operate on a multi-dimensional band of reality”, says Rodwell. “In the last 10 years, clients have come to me from the U.K, North America, Europe, Russia, Japan and South America”.

Rodwell also explains that part of her client’s contact experiences seems to inspire them to draw complex artwork, scripts, symbols and sometimes speaking strange languages.

“An eight year old has called her downloading of information ‘knowledge bombs’, as complex data conveyed through mental images and concepts seem to create a heightened consciousness level”, says Rodwell. “These ‘Star Children’ exhibit a maturity and wisdom beyond their years and often describe their connection to spirit and angelic realms”.

This former registered nurse is not the only one to have noticed a change with today’s children. A May 2005 USA Today article quotes James Twyman, producer of films on “Indigo Children”, as saying that a new generation of special children are among us who have increased telepathic abilities and are spiritually awakened.

The name “Indigo Children” comes from a blue indigo colored aura that some people say they can see around these children, as per a January 2006 New York Times article.

ABC News’ Diane Sawyers has also explored the issue of these extraordinary children in a November 2005 interview with an entire family of “Indigo Children”. Sawyers said that this phenomenon was “fascinating” and was “across the country”.

Rodwell explains that while many “Star Children” and “Indigo Children” have telepathic abilities, are spiritually awakened and often describe seeing “Beings of Light” (angels), the main difference is that “Star Children” have recollections of having had encounters with extraterrestrial beings and of sometimes having been on alien spaceships.

Though many medical professionals are still skeptical, in November 2003, Rodwell’s work was featured in the Australian Doctor Focus Magazine, a prestigious Australian medical journal.

Rodwell is not alone with her views as a growing number of professionals in the medical community share her conclusions and have spoken publicly.

Such people include the late world-renowned Harvard Medical School professor of psychiatry, Dr. John E. Mack, author of “Passport to the Cosmos”. and Dr. Janet Colli, author of “Sacred Encounters – Spiritual Awakenings During Close Encounters”. Dr. Colli will also speak at Montreal’s IIIHS conference.

Rodwell’s work continues to raise serious questions that were raised in February 2005 on ABC News by the late Peter Jennings in his two hour Primetime Special: “UFOs – Seeing is Believing”.

Jennings’ millions of viewers were presented with a small portion of the 150 interviews conducted by ABC in regards to the controversial and enigmatic issue of UFOs and extraterrestrial encounters. Jennings concluded that many UFOs were indeed unidentified and that questions about their origin remained unanswered.

To Rodwell, the answer is that we are being visited by extraterrestrial civilizations. Her conclusion is echoed by the former Canadian Minister of National Defense Hon. Paul Hellyer, who, in September of 2005, went public saying that UFOs were as real as the airplanes that fly over our heads, and were indeed extraterrestrial vehicles.

During a December 2005 NBC News interview with Tucker Carlson, Hellyer quoted former high level Pentagon officials as the source of his information. One of his sources includes an unnamed retired US Air Force General who spoke with him directly and confirmed that some UFOs were indeed "identified" and were piloted by extraterrestrial intelligences.

Hellyer is not the only politician who has raised the issue of UFOs. A CNN November 2002 article quoted President Clinton’s former White House Chief of Staff, John Podesta, asking for the Pentagon to come clean and to declassify their UFO files.

Podesta currently supports a Coalition for Freedom of Information lawsuit against NASA asking for the declassification of their top secret files in relations to the 1965 UFO crash in Kecksburg, Pennsylvania.

Though her evidence does not include an actual UFO, Rodwell says that she has evidence from a scientific, medical, psychological, and historical perspective to support her paradigm shifting conclusion that children are being evolved and transformed on many levels through extraterrestrial encounters.

This evidence will be presented in her first Canadian presentation in Montreal May 5th-14th, 2006 at the IIIHS conference. Rodwell is available for media interviews.

2006 IIIHS - "GLOBAL ENCOUNTERS & TRANSFORMATIONS IN SPIRIT, SPACE & TIME"

 Map_3 The Thirty-First Annual SSF-IIIHS International Conference & College Program

INFORMATION:http://www.iiihs.org/conference2006.htm

May 5–14, 2006
Hotel Delta Centre-Ville, 777 University St., Montreal, Quebec, Canada
• Int'l Conference I, May 5–7 • Int'l College Week, May 8–12 • Int'l Conference II, May 12–14

This is a special invitation to hear and meet distinguished contributors who are mapping a way ahead in “global encounters and transformations,” at the frontiers of human knowledge.

Contemporary issues of life, death, healing, and transformation — both personal and planetary — are raised every day, in every continent and nation, by wars, human cruelty and strife, and natural disasters.

One of the fore-most problems we have created — and fostered for the past four centuries in the secularized world — is the radical gulf assumed to exist between our “inner” subjective and “outer” objective lives, attitudes, perceptions, consciousness and values. However, developments in today’s new quantum sciences of consciousness and healing would suggest to some of us that the one, affects the other rather dramatically. The recent convergence of more spiritually cognizant models of the universe and of reality emerging from today’s new physical and social sciences, bears a striking resemblance to ancient perceptions of a multi-dimensional human with a multi-dimensional mind in a multi-dimensional universe.

Geri DeStefano, PhD and Alfred Lambremont Webre, JD, MEd will be speaking at The 31ST ANNUAL IIIHS INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE & COLLEGE PROGRAM:

    * "GLOBAL ENCOUNTERS & TRANSFORMATIONS IN SPIRIT, SPACE & TIME - MAPPING A WAY AHEAD IN THE 'DAWN OF A NEW LIGHT' AT THE FRONTIERS OF HUMAN KNOWLEDGE - CONTEMPORARY ISSUES OF LIFE, DEATH, HEALING & TRANSFORMATION, PERSONAL & PLANETARY, 2006"

THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO CARTER: "Or extraterrestrial people coming to earth, I don’t think that’s ever happened."

Cartergq EXCERPT:

HYLTON: One of the promises you made in 1976 was that if you were elected, you would look into the reports from Roswell and see if there had been any cover-ups. Did you look into that?

CARTER: Well, in a way. I became more aware of what our intelligence services were doing. There was only one instance that I’ll talk about now. We had a plane go down in the Central African Republic—a twin-engine plane, small plane. And we couldn’t find it. And so we oriented satellites that were going around the earth every ninety minutes to fly over that spot where we thought it might be and take photographs. We couldn’t find it. So the director of the CIA came and told me that he had contacted a woman in California that claimed to have supernatural capabilities. And she went in a trance, and she wrote down latitudes and longitudes, and we sent our satellite over that latitude and longitude, and there was the plane.

HYLTON: That must have been surreal for you. You’re the president of the United States, and you’re getting intelligence information from a woman in a trance in California.

CARTER: That’s exactly right.

HYLTON: How did your scientific mind process that?

CARTER: With skepticism. Whether it was just a gross coincidence or…I don’t know. But that’s one thing that I couldn’t explain. As far as covering up possible flights from distant satellites or distant heavenly bodies, I don’t believe in that, and there’s no evidence that it was ever covered up. Or extraterrestrial people coming to earth, I don’t think that’s ever happened.

HYLTON: In a way, just the fact that you promised the American people you would look into it is reflective of how much of an outsider you were to Washington.

CARTER: That’s true.

From 1963-1967, Hon. Paul Hellyer was Minister of National Defence of Canada in the cabinet of Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson, who won a Nobel Peace Prize. On September 25, 2005, at the Toronto Exopolitics Symposium held at Convocation Hall, University of Toronto, former Minister of National Defence Hellyer stated: "UFOs, are as real as the airplanes that fly over your head," and "I'm so concerned about what the consequences might be of starting an intergalactic war, that I just think I had to say something." Mr. Hellyer stated the people of Earth may be threatened with the consequences of war in outer space: "The United States military are preparing weapons which could be used against the aliens, and they could get us into an intergalactic war without us ever having any warning." Former Minister of Defence Hellyer went on to state: "The time has come to lift the veil of secrecy, and let the truth emerge, so there can be a real and informed debate, about one of the most important problems facing our planet today." Hon. Paul Hellyer stated at University of Toronto: "To turn us in the direction of re-unification with the rest of creation Alfred Lambremont Webre is proposing a 'Decade of Contact' - an 'era of openess, public hearings, public funded research, and education about extraterrestrial reality.' That could just be the antidote the world needs to end its greed-driven, power-centered madness."

China overtakes Canada in outer space search for aliens

By Judi McLeod

Monday, January 2, 2006 - The Peoples Republic of China will give "life-on-other-planet" Canadians a run for their money on pushing the UFO agenda in 2006. Canada already has a welcoming committee at the ready to establish diplomacy with "ethical Off-Planet cultures now visiting earth".

Since 1964, Canada has been home to the world’s first UFO landing pad in St. Paul, Alberta, a 130-ton concrete structure built as that city’s Centennial project. Boasted to be among the famed visitors who dropped by to see the UFO landing pad by its promoters were Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth and Mother Teresa.

The Canadian Exopolitics Initiative, presented by NGOs to a Senate Committee panel hearing in Winnipeg on March 10, 2005, proposes that the Government of Canada undertake a `Decade of Contact’ with extraterrestrials.

The proposed document is "a 10-year process of formal, funded public education, scientific research, educational curricula development and implementation, strategic planning, community activity and public research concerning our terrestrial society’s full culture, political, social, legal and governmental communication and public interest diplomacy, with advanced, ethical Off-Planet cultures now visiting earth."

If the idea of ETs already visiting earth is a mind stretch for some, the Decade of Contact initiative is supported by former Canadian Minister of Defense Paul Hellyer, among others.

In 1938, an Orson Wells radio program claimed that a real time alien invasion was in progress.

Now that they’ve got the money, China may get to ETs before Canada ever does. "Government officials in Guiyang, capital of Guizhou Province, announced on Tuesday that they had received $20 million from a Taiwan-based company to build a UFO research facility in China." (TCV News, Dec. 11, 2005).

According to TCV News’ Jim Kouri, the project is a result of several people in the city’s Baiyun District claiming they were visited by extraterrestrials in 1994. With the new research facility, scientists hope to reproduce the mysterious moment through photos and historical documentation.

"In 1994, more than 27 pine trees in a forest farm in the district mysteriously fell down. However, nearby plastic shelters stood intact. "A nearby motor vehicle factory reported similar unexplained events: steel pipes were strangely broken; a huge truck was found more than 20 metres away from its original place; and a factory employee claims he was mysteriously pulled up in the air by an "unknown" force."

While some chalk up the mysterious events to ET, scientists stated after a field trip to the locations that thunder, lightning and tornadoes were the probable cause.

Wang Fangchen, a biologist who visited the site right after the event, said the city’s plan to build a UFO research base is "ridiculous". "Where do they recruit scientists for the research?" he asked, before adding: "I won’t oppose it if they just want to promote local tourism through the programme."

Zhou Xiaoqiang, a secretary-general with the Beijing UFO Research Association, said, "People often mistake planes, clouds and insects, as well as strange shadows on photographs, as being UFOs. "If aliens came, they would more likely appear before our eyes politely than hide themselves, said Xiaoaqing.

On Sept. 22, 2004, Prime Minister Paul Martin declared to the UN General Assembly, "Space is our final frontier. It has always captured our imagination. What a tragedy it would be if space became one big weapons arsenal and the scene of a new arms race."

Martin stated, "In 1967, the UN agreed that weapons of mass destruction must not be based in space. The time has come to extend this ban to all weapons…" Meanwhile, the same US detractors, who argue that there never were Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq, worry about the possibility of stockpiling WMD in outer space.

ITALIA: LA STAMPA - Bush contro gli Ufo: dalla base Luna una guerra segreta

Italy_flag ESTERI PAUL HELLYER ALL’UNIVERSITÀ DI TORONTO: «È COMINCIATO TUTTO NEL 1947...»

Area51nosm_1 Un ex ministro canadese rivela: «Gli Usa stanno preparando la difesa intergalattica
26/11/2005
di Maurizio Molinari
Bush
NEW YORK. Gli Ufo volano da oltre mezzo secolo in totale libertà sui cieli del nostro pianeta, il governo degli Stati Uniti sviluppa armi segrete per fronteggiare possibili attacchi provenienti dal cosmo, da un giorno all'altro potrebbe scoppiare una guerra intergalattica e il vero motivo per cui è stato ordinato alla Nasa di realizzare una base sulla Luna entro il 2020 è la volontà della Casa Bianca di monitorare da vicino i velivoli extraterrestri che vanno e vengono dalla Terra.

Non si tratta della trama di un libro di fantascienza ma di quanto ha affermato Paul Hellyer di fronte a un pubblico di studenti all'Università di Toronto durante un simposio sulla «Exopolitics».

In quanto ex ministro della Difesa ed ex vicepremier del Canada, Paul Hellyer tra il 1963 e il 1967 partecipava alle riunioni a porte chiuse dell'Alleanza Atlantica ed era in particolare al corrente dei segreti del Norad - il comando aereo americano-canadese che veglia su ogni movimento sui cieli del Nordamerica - ma finora non aveva mai parlato con tanta chiarezza, pur dicendosi a più riprese convinto della loro esistenza.

Senza svelare le fonti delle proprie informazioni Hellyer ha esordito affermando che «gli Ufo sono reali al pari degli aerei che volano sopra le nostre teste» e ha ammesso di essere «davvero preoccupato per le conseguenze di una guerra intergalattica che potrebbe scoppiare in qualsiasi momento». A suo avviso gli Stati Uniti vennero a conoscenza dell'esistenza degli Ufo nel 1947 allorché cadde su Roswell, in New Mexico, quello che molti testimoni descrissero come un «disco volante» prima delle smentite arrivate a pioggia dai militari di Washington.

«Il livello di segretezza relativo a quanto avvenuto a Roswell è stato sin dall'inizio senza paragoni - ha spiegato l'ex titolare alla Difesa - e la grande maggioranza degli alti funzionari e dei politici degli Stati Uniti, senza contare i puri e semplici ministri della Difesa, non vennero mai informati di nulla». Solamente i presidenti degli Stati Uniti e pochi altri sarebbero dunque dal 1947 al corrente della verità sulla provenienza dei resti raccolti a Roswell e delle successive scoperte fatte nella base del Nevada «Area 51» sulla circolazione degli Ufo sui cieli della Terra. «Una conseguenza di queste conoscenze - ha aggiunto Hellyer di fronte a una platea che lo ha osannato come un profeta - è che gli Stati Uniti stanno preparando da tempo un particolare tipo di armamenti che potrebbero essere usati contro gli alieni e che rischiano di precipitare tutti noi in una guerra intergalattica senza aver neanche il minimo sentore di quanto sta per avvenire».

Proprio a questo scenario sarebbe legata la decisione presa dal presidente americano, George W. Bush, all'inizio del 2004 di chiedere alla Nasa di costruire una «base sulla Luna» entro e non oltre il 2020. Sebbene Bush abbia affermato di volerla usare come trampolino per l'esplorazione umana del sistema solare l'ex ministro la pensa diversamente: «Questa installazione consentirà agli americani di osservare meglio il traffico di Ufo che si dirigono verso la Terra e poi tornano verso lo spazio e anche di colpirli e abbatterli se decideranno di farlo». Anche la nuova generazione di armi spaziali che il Pentagono sta sviluppando - il bilancio del 2005 ha previsto lo stanziamento dei primi fondi - sarebbe legata al possibile scenario di una guerra intergalattica.

«È giunto il momento di alzare il velo di segretezza che circonda l'esistenza degli Ufo - ha terminato l'ex ministro - e di far emergere la verità affinché la gente sia messa a conoscenza di uno dei più importanti problemi che la Terra si trova ad affrontare». A seguito del discorso di Hellyer tre organizzazioni non-governative canadesi - guidate dall'Istituto per la cooperazione nello spazio - hanno chiesto alla commissione Sicurezza nazionale del Senato di Ottawa di aprire un'inchiesta sugli Ufo, convocando a deporre sotto giuramento non solo l'ex ministro ma anche i vertici dell'intelligence, i comandanti attuali e passati del Norad e i massimi esperti scientifici e militari nazionali al fine di appurare quali informazioni possieda il Canada. Le organizzazioni non-governative chiedono anche al premier Paul Martin di dare inizio al progetto «Una decade di contatti» per accompagnare la popolazione alla conoscenza degli Ufo che ci circondano.

MEDIA UPDATE: Contrary to the pre-vailing stereotype, the mainstream media are demonstrating an active interest in the CANADIAN EXOPOLITICS INITIATIVE and in the issue of relations with Extraterrestrial civilizations now visiting Earth.

At of 9:08 AM on Saturday December 3, 2005, the official Internet statistics on the Yahoo News Hon. Paul Hellyer article (Below) showed that:

"Estimated Pickup -                   577,301 Journalists and 265,808 Media Outlets picked up article world-wide. This number estimates the number of times your article was picked up by a media outlet. This does not tell you how many times your story appears in the media. It simply attempts to estimate media interest of your news article."

The Mainstream Media is listening, very intently, by the evidence.  We need to show collective support by participating as World Citizens in the CANADIAN EXOPOLITICS INITIATIVE and the 2006 USA EXOPOLITICS PLATFORM.

EDMONTON SUN: "Senate pressured to hold hearings on ET"

Logo_sunNovember 26, 2005
Senate pressured to hold hearings on ET
By SUN NEWS SERVICES

A number of groups have joined forces with former Canadian Defence Minister Paul Hellyer in urging Parliament to hold public hearings on 'exopolitics' - or relations with extraterrestrials (ETs).

Three non-governmental organizations (NGOs) were reacting to a speech made by Hellyer in September in Toronto in which he warned that "UFOs are as real as the airplanes that fly over your head.''

Hellyer said he is concerned the United States is preparing weapons for use against the aliens and could get the whole world into an "intergalactic war.'' According to Hellyer, the Americans' interest in returning to the moon is in part based on the desire to build a forward military base there.

The three organizations backing Hellyer's request for hearings are the Institute for Co-operation in Space (ICIS), the Toronto Exopolitics Symposium and the Disclosure Project, a U.S.-based organization that has assembled high-level military-intelligence witnesses of a possible ET presence.

Earlier this month, the Senate replied to the ICIS that their full agenda precluded any hearings in the near future on ET issues.

"That does not deter us," one spokesman for the NGOs said, "We are going ahead with our request to Prime Minister Paul Martin and the official Opposition leaders in the House of Commons now, and we will re-apply to the Senate of Canada in early 2006.

"Time is on the side of open disclosure that there are ethical extraterrestrial civilizations visiting Earth.''

Paul Hellyer and the Politics of Exopolitics

By Gord Heath, Nov 5, 2005

Paul Hellyer
Former Canadian Minister of Defence
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Hellyer

    Paul Hellyer, a former Minister of Defence in the Pearson Government, has announced his belief that UFOs are real and that the US is developing weapons systems for space which are to be used against alien craft entering earth's airspace. He voiced his opinions at the recent "2005 Toronto Exopolitics Symposium".

Exopolitics is a new term used to describe the study of the politics of extraterrestrial contact. It is usually discussed in a context which assumes that enough evidence exists from existing UFO reports to conclude that some UFOs are craft that are piloted by beings originating from other planets and solar systems. Hellyer's comments received some coverage in the national media and stirred some interest and reaction from the public, mostly from those who have some interest in UFOs.

    Hellyer's History as Political Nomad

    Paul Hellyer was first elected as a Liberal from Toronto's Davenport riding in 1949. He was, at that time, the youngest MP to serve in Canada's parliament. He served as a parliamentary assistant to the Minister of National Defence and then went on to serve as the Associate Minister of Defence in the cabinet of Prime Minister Louis Saint-Laurent.

He later served as Minister of National Defence in Prime Minister Pearson's cabinet in the mid 1960s and served as Minister of Transport in the cabinet of Prime Minister Trudeau.

His most notable and controversial achievement was the integration and unification of Canada's army, navy and air forces into a single organization, the Canadian Forces. At the time, unification sparked considerable negative reaction from many members of the armed forces who objected to the manner in which military traditions such as separate and unique uniforms were discarded.

    After resigning from cabinet in a dispute with Trudeau, Hellyer sat as an independent and later formed a political party, the Action Canada Party, before crossing to join the Progressive Conservative Party. He failed in a run for the leadership of the PCs before leaving that party to rejoin the Liberals where he failed to secure a nomination. He later went on to form the Canadian Action Party in 1995.

    In terms of influence, the peak of his political career was probably in his earlier years when he served as a cabinet minister. His political views gravitated towards concerns about the threats to Canada's sovereignty posed by US political and economic influence in Canadian affairs.

In recent years he is one of many prominent Canadians who have opposed Canadian support and participation in the US National Missile Defense program (NMD) and supported calls for a ban on weapons in space.

    It is through these contacts that he began to encounter the views of persons who believe that the US is planning space based weapons systems to be deployed against ET controlled vehicles entering earth's atmosphere from space.

   [EDITOR: See:"Missile Defense: It Was Wrong Then and It's Wrong Now" by Paul Hellyer Published on Thursday, May 15, 2003 by the Globe & Mail/Canada
http://www.commondreams.org/views03/0515-10.htm

Heller writes, "Instead, Canada should accept the long-standing invitation of Congressman Dennis Kucinich of Ohio to launch a conference to seek approval of an international treaty to ban weapons in space. That would be a positive Canadian contribution toward a more peaceful world.]

Paul Hellyer states that his beliefs in ET visitation do not relate back to insider knowledge obtained from his time spent as Minister of National Defence from 1963 to 1967. At that time he was largely consumed by other pressing public policy priorities and paid scant attention to high profile UFO encounters like the Shag Harbour, Nova Scotia incident in October 1967 or the Falcon Lake, Manitoba encounter in May 1967 where Stephen Mickalak received chest burns from a hovering UFO.

    Roswell Writings Change Hellyer's Views

    Hellyer states his recent interest in UFOs was prompted by viewing Peter Jennings TV documentary on the topic. He later read "The Day After Roswell" by Col. Philip J. Corso, who once served as the head of the Foreign Technology Desk at the US Army's Research and Development department.

In his book, Corso asserts that parts from a crashed alien vehicle were recovered from the July 1947 incident at Roswell, New Mexico which the US Army Air Force later explained as a weather balloon. Corso states some parts were transferred to a "file cabinet" at the Pentagon where they were used to guide developments in several technologies such as integrated circuits, night vision systems and lasers.

Author of controversial book, "The Day After Roswell"

    Many UFOlogists dispute conclusions that a UFO crashed at Roswell, New Mexico in 1947. Others do not believe Corso's specific allegations in his book relating to his role in applying ET derived technologies from this alleged crashed UFO to practical recent technological innovations.

Stanton Friedman is a nuclear physicist who investigated Roswell and has books about the Roswell crash and MJ-12, the alleged top secret US committee created to study UFOs. Friedman, who now resides in New Brunswick, casts doubts on Corso's claims that he was the central figure responsible for seeding technology derived from wreckage taken from the ET spaceship which (allegedly) crashed at Roswell.

In response to those who question how he came to believe the contents of this specific book, Hellyer states that he personally spoke with an unnamed US General who assured him that all of this and more was true.

    Exopolitics Versus the UFO Fundamentalists

    For some UFOlogists, Hellyer's foray into Exopolitics was not welcomed. The very notion of a study of the politics of extraterrestrial contact is hotly contested by many as they feel that UFOlogists must focus on the scientific investigation of UFO phenomena. Some reason that there is insufficient evidence to conclude that some UFOs may be vehicles incorporating technology far beyond those developed by earth civilization.

    The reality is that all of this is mostly a debate happening amongst a very small group of researchers and interested persons that has little measurable impact on the information shared through mass media outlets like television, radio and newspapers.

    There are few celebrities of any sort who want to risk their profile and public following to publicly state their views on the possible importance posed by UFO encounters, especially if some have extraterrestrial origins. Few politicians have been brave enough to face the ridicule posed by suggesting there might be anything worthwhile to gain through the study of UFOs.

President Carter and President Reagan both spoke about personal UFO encounters but made few other public statements about the policy implications posed by these events.

    It might be expected that any viewpoint supporting the possible reality of ET visitation to the planet might be welcomed by those UFOlogist's who claim to be open to this possibility. But due to deep divisions between some UFOlogists and persons who advance the study of exopolitics, this has not been the case.

    As an example, Paul Hellyer's statements to the Exopolitics conference in Toronto were mocked and ridiculed by filmmaker Paul Kimball of Redstar Films based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Kimball's views are of some significance as he is one of the few Canadians to have an interest and financial stake in producing documentary films on UFO related topics. His documentaries include "Stanton T. Friedman IS Real" and "Do You Believe in Majic?" He is currently working on film documentaries on cattle mutilations and the ten best UFO cases.

    Kimball Believes Hellyer Should Have Known UFO Secrets

        One of Kimball's posts on his weblog "The Other Side of Truth" (http://redstarfilms.blogspot.com/) was largely focussed on heaping scorn on Hellyer's nomadic political career "Ladies and Gentlemen – Meet the REAL Paul Hellyer". His earlier post on Hellyer "Paul Hellyer – The Big Fish Flops" raised more specific issues relating to Hellyer's statement. Kimball's opinion is that if anyone would know about UFO secrets, it would have been Hellyer:

    "Because if anyone in Canada would have known about the Cosmic Watergate, and UFO secrets, and alien bases, etc. etc., it would have been the Minister of National Defence in the mid 1960s."

    This statement assumes that the Minister of National Defence is privy to all secrets contained within the Department of National Defence. It further assumes that any questions concerning the security implications of UFO incursions into Canadian air space would require a continuing policy review from the Minister of National Defence.

What if Canadian policy on the security implications of UFOs was already determined by our participation in NORAD continental air defence, established back in the early 1950s?

    US Policy Was to Debunk UFOs

    There is documentation to suggest that there was considerable concern about the possible security risks posed by UFOs during the early post World War 2 time period.

The US Air Force initiated several studies of UFOs to evaluate the potential threat to national security. It was initially thought that the UFOs might be secret weapons produced by Germany or the Soviet Union.

It was later determined that the UFOs were not foreign developed weapons systems and one study in the US Air Force concluded some UFOs possibly had an "interplanetary origin".

In his UFO books, Major Donald Keyhoe documented the struggle in the US Air Force between those who favoured open sharing and disclosure of UFO information with the public and "the silence group" who feared that the public was not prepared for this information and wanted to keep all unsolved reports secret.

    The CIA sponsored Robertson Panel Report in 1953 appears to have set the policy direction for US government agencies including intelligence and military agencies regarding UFOs.

It suggested that the credible UFO reports should be debunked, that only reports of easily explainable occurrences of meteors and such should be publicized, and that the activities of civilian UFO study groups should be monitored.

It was concluded that there was no evidence that UFOs posed a specific security threat to the US, but that the reporting of UFOs might trigger the mass hysteria that was observed following the radio broadcast of "The War of the Worlds".

The panel felt that the mass media could be used to discredit UFO sightings. It was also concluded that there was no evidence that UFOs were actually advanced vehicles piloted by beings from other planets.

    The official study of UFOs by the US Air Force did continue through Project Blue Book until the 1968 University of Colorado "Condon Committee Report" advised that Blue Book should be shutdown as there was nothing further to be gained from the study of UFOs.

But even though Project Blue Book continued through the 1950s to the late 1960s, it was largely ineffectual in conducting serious research into UFOs and its direction was largely to abide by the policy framework established through the Robertson Panel Report.

    The more serious and contentious question is whether some persons connected with the study of UFOs decided to continue studies in a compartmentalized and secret organization and program.

Those who support this view refer to documentation suggesting such a group, possibly called MJ-12, has been operating in the US since the late 1940s or early 1950s. A key contention is that the existence of this organization and its activities are hidden behind walls of internal security from any and all elected and publicly accountable officials such as presidents, cabinet members, senators and members of congress.

This secrecy is allegedly maintained by threats and intimidation. While some information does leak out, it is countered by the deliberate leakage of "disinformation" which masks the truth behind many seemingly related but false or partially false allegations.

    Some theorists believe that some of the information about these programs is released in a controlled manner to eventually prepare the public for a broader and more open disclosure of the real history of UFO studies.

    What About Canada?

    Did Canada have an active UFO study program in the mid-sixties? Did the Canadian government ever formally establish a policy direction concerning the potential national security implications posed by UFOs?

    While there has certainly been many UFO encounters involving RCAF aircraft and radar installations, there does not seem to exist a paper trail showing the policy direction that guided reaction to these events.

The RCAF did perform some study of UFO incidents, but there is not any clear indication of the policy objective that framed this study. It is quite possible that the elected arm of the Canadian government, the PMO and cabinet, have never prepared a policy directive concerning the study of and response to UFO incidents.

Perhaps there has never been sufficient pressure to require a government policy response. Perhaps government bureaucracy including National Defence has preferred to set their own internal policy. The media has largely ignored reporting of UFO events since the 1950s and the public is itself fragmented by differing belief systems and focussed on more tangible and immediate priorities.

    In Canada, the study of UFOs was offloaded to the National Research Council in 1968, the year that the US disbanded the USAF "Project Blue Book" study of UFOs. There were few scientists at NRC who harboured any willingness to show interest in the objective study of a "frivolous topic" like UFOs, except for the purposes of finding and locating fallen meteorites. The timing of the offload of UFO study responsibility suggests that Canada was simply following the US lead in its policy towards the study of UFOs.

    Since the mid 1950s, Canada has participated in NORAD which provides security of Canadian and US air space from foreign incursions. The response to any unidentified return that shows up on NORAD radar systems would abide by the policies and regulations established by the joint US and Canadian NORAD command structure.

It is therefore quite likely that our response to UFOs detected by the military would abide by NORAD policies which are likely largely developed by US military strategists.

    It is theoretically possible that the US has actually discouraged Canadian government research into UFOs because they might be concerned that the results of such studies might be released to the public or may be obtained by competing foreign governments.

    There Never Was a Project Magnet

    It is difficult to catch Paul Kimball's line of reasoning on Hellyer. Apparently he sees Hellyer's disclosure that as a defence minister, he knew little or nothing about UFOs as proof positive that the Canadian government has never had an interest in UFOs.

He might be right that most people in government were at most puzzled by what they heard. But there were certainly some people in the Canadian military that had to be concerned about what was reported by pilots and radar observers in various military encounters with UFOs.

    Kimball goes on to say "There was no super secret Wilbert Smith research project" in his efforts to debunk the notion that the Canadian government ever had any interest in studying UFOs. The project he is referring to is "Project Magnet", a program run by Department of Transport scientist, Wilbert Smith.

    The project was concerned with the idea that the earth's magnetic field might be the force used by the flying saucers for their propulsion. It later led to a small UFO detection station at Shirley Bay near Ottawa, Ontario.
