[Editor’s Note]  As this article is quite detailed and contains many diagrams, you may choose to watch the ExoPolitics video here, where Dr Salla narrates the many charts and images in the audio version of this article.  The following article, however, contains further source material and links.


The surge in volcanic activity in the lower Puna region of the Big Island of Hawaii is concentrated in the area surrounding the Puna Geothermal Venture. Scientific data clearly links the unacknowledged fracking activity at the Puna Geothermal Venture as a factor in what is occurring with lava flows and earthquakes.

More scientific data shows how the fracking may have been deliberately designed to create a geological process by which lava would drain from Kilauea’s summit into the East Rift Zone so as to create large new vents that would destabilize the geology, and possibly trigger a major collapse in the Hilina Fault System.

A video prepared by Pacific Tsunamic Warning Center clearly shows that the epicenter of earthquake activity centered in the lower Puna region is adjacent to the Puna Geothermal Venture.

The following map from the video depicts all the earthquakes and the eruption site for the recent lava outbreak from 30 April to 6 May. The eruption occurs mainly in Leilani Estates, which is right next to the Puna Geothermal Venture.


The following map by the US Geological Service shows where the Puna Geothermal Venture (marked PGV) is in relation to the current volcanic eruption.

Here’s a photo showing the lava outbreak and its very close proximity to the Puna Geothermal Venture (circled in red) on May 22. Since then, it has begun flowing onto the property, but still not reached any of the wells.

The scientific data clearly shows how the Puna Geothermal Venture (PGV) is at the epicenter of the volcanic eruption. Is this merely chance or by design?

In my previous article and video published on May 15, I wrote about how the fracking activity at PGV has been scientifically linked to earthquakes. The following diagram was included which clearly showed the strong correlation:

Source of earthquake data: Advanced National Siesmic System – ANSS, Source of Injection Data is the EPA

Since the publication of my article, there have been other articles linking the fracking at PGV with earthquakes, and also raising the question of whether the fracking caused the volcanic eruption. The most prominent one has come from Jon Rappoport, who wrote a May 22 article on his blogsite titled: “Did fracking cause the Hawaii volcano eruption?”

In my May 15 article and video, I mentioned the Hilina Slump and how it may have been related to the fracking occurring at PGV. This has led to much criticism in the video’s comments section, but the scientific facts do show that earthquake activity is related to movements in the Hilina Fault System. Here’s a map showing the Hilina Slump system in relation to the East Rift Zone.

The following map produced by the Hawaii Volcano Observatory shows how the recent earthquake activity led to the Hilina Slump slipping towards the Pacific Ocean Observatory by about two meters, which is massive in geological terms.

Here’s how an article produced by the Berkeley Seismology Lab explained the above photo:

While the earthquakes under the summit and under the eruption center at the eastern end of the rift zone are generated by the movement of magma, the big event and its aftershocks under the pali have a different origin. This becomes obvious in Figure 2 [reproduced above]. It shows how the permanent GPS stations installed and operated by the Hawaii Volcano Observatory moved in response to the 6.9 quake. The red arrows indicate the direction of horizontal motion and all of them point to the southeast. The length of each arrow represents the extent of the motion with the longest ones having moved by more than 2 feet. This shows that the flank of the cliff on the southern coast of Hawaii has moved further towards the ocean.

What the article didn’t mention was that the 6.9 quake on May 4 was triggered by the massive outflow of lava from Kilauea Summit, Halemaʻumaʻu crater, into the East Rift Zone. Basically, the volcanic eruption in the Lower Puna region (where the Puna Geothermal Venture is located) is being fueled by fresh lava from the summit of Kileaua, which is being drained towards it.

While it began slowly as old lava oozed out of the new volcanic fissures in Leilani Estates, the recent upsurge is a result of fresh new lava arriving from the Kilauea Summit. The Honolulu Advertiser explained the process:

The first weeks of the eruption saw pasty, crumbly, slower-moving aa lava oozing slowly through the fissures. But that changed Friday afternoon, scientists said, when preliminary results from a testing sample showed a different composite of lava, the smoother pahoehoe variety that is generally fresher, hotter and faster.

The following diagram shows the dynamics of the lava flows linking Kilauea Summit, the Pu’u’O’o Vent, and the East Rift Zone.

Source: Ars Technica

An article by Scott Johnson in Ars Technica, explained the process as follows:

Kīlauea’s main magma chamber seems to be a few kilometers below Halemaʻumaʻu Crater at its summit. When the volcano’s guts gurgle with a new injection of magma from below, the lava lake in Halemaʻumaʻu Crater rises. The conduits and crevices that constitute Kīlauea’s “plumbing” extend from the summit region over to the East Rift Zone. So after lava rises in Halemaʻumaʻu Crater, the lake sometimes drains back down as the new magma moves on toward the eastern section of the volcano.

This is where we finally get to the issue of whether the fracking at Puna Geothermal Venture was secretly an attempt to weaken the underlying geology in order to create a path for fresh lava to drain from Kilauea summit into the East Rift Zone. As the following diagram of the East Rift Zone illustrates, lava follows the path of least resistance in a highly pressurized environment.

This principle would be well known to any geologist, or plumber if we use Johnson’s analogy. This means that some would have been aware from the inception of the PGV in 1993, that the process of using highly pressurized water on subterranean rocks (aka fracking), severely compromising the underground environment, would effectively open up a new path for lava to flow from the Kilauea summit and the Pu’u’O’o Vent

Apparently, this is exactly what was planned by those behind the Puna Geothermal Venture according to Paul Collin, who has strong ties to the U.S. intelligence community:

It is understood that Hawaii’s geothermal power company “Puna Geothermal Venture” ( PGV ) purposefully “drilled” wells and “fracked” into the ground in such a way that lava from Earth’s mantle would eventually be redirected to open-up and spout a ‘brand new volcano within the island of Hawaii, and sure enough facts set forth by a USGS chart and briefing that lava has now been routed right along the same linear path south-east, which actually punched-out a ‘brand new caldera volcano’ within the “Lower East Rift Zone” adjacent to the extremely weak debris landmass known as the ‘Hilani Slump’ consisting of 10% of Hawaii’s southeastern land mass that was already slipping into the Pacific Ocean ‘without the new lava delta’ growing huger; about 400 meters per hour on land ( alone ) – threatening a tsunami event from coast to coast.

In my May 15 article, I described how the creation of a massive tsunami through a collapse of the Hilina slump was the secret purpose behind the creation of the Puna Geothermal Venture, whose owners are linked to the Rothschild family.

I wish to state for the record that I don’t believe the plan will succeed, and that the hoped-for megatsunami that would cripple the United States economically and militarily for decades to come will not occur. However, it is vitally important to expose this plan was and who is behind it.

My view is that the Rothschild family has chosen China as the hub for the kind of New World Order that the Deep State/global elite would like to emerge. That would be an openly authoritarian state where AI technology is used to monitor citizens and quickly remove troublemakers expressing dissenting political views.

The United States is the main obstacle to such an authoritarian New World Order being created, and secret geo-engineering was therefore undertaken in Hawaii that would create a megatsunami via a major collapse of the Hilina fault system.

If the plan had worked, then it is not hard to see how the U.S. would have been unable to prevent a New World Order emerging – based on China’s authoritarian socio-political model masked behind AI technology designed to appeal to a tech savvy Millennial generation.

It is also important to mention that this is the second time in 2018 that Hawaii was targeted by the Deep State/global elites for some kind of catastrophic event that would economically and militarily weaken the United States. On January 13, 2018, a ballistic nuclear missile was sent by a secret CIA linked Navy, called the “Dark Fleet”, in a false flag attack that was meant to embroil the United States in a catastrophic nuclear war.

In a January 20 article, I provided documents and references showing how the CIA has built its own secret fleet that conducts covert operations on behalf of the Deep State/global elite. Thankfully, that plan failed due to the intervention of a U.S. Air Force based secret space program that shot down the missile, as I discussed another article.

Since 2004, I have lived on Hawaii’s Big Island. On May 1, 2018, I moved from the lower Puna region just as the earthquakes intensified, to the Kona side of the Big Island. It boggles the mind that such a beautiful part of our planet is being repeatedly targeted by the global elite for catastrophes that will facilitate their New World Order plans.

I sincerely hope that appropriate legal and political action is taken against: all those behind the Puna Geothermal Venture for their role in the devastation that is being caused in the lower Puna region by their secret fracking; the local County officials that were likely bribed to remain silent over the risk of permitting such a venture; and also against the global elites who put together such a nefarious plan.

On May 24, my anonymous source, JP, who has provided dozens of photos of different types of craft belonging to a United States Air Force (USAF) secret space program says he encountered a human looking “Nordic” extraterrestrial. He claims the Nordic was wearing a USAF uniform and invited him to go for a ride in a landed saucer-shaped craft in a secluded wooded area of Orlando, Florida.

JP declined the offer but took photos of the spacecraft after it departed (attached below).  His recollection of the conversation with the Nordic reveals that they are directly cooperating with the USAF and abiding by the terms of an agreement concerning their interaction with the general public.

What follows is the Skype conversation I had with JP along with some commentary. I have created a page where earlier articles and videos featuring his photos, along with originals, can be found for independent analysis.

The conversation began at 10:32 Eastern Daylight Time. I have removed grammatical errors and added extra text in square brackets to clarify what JP is saying:

JP said the following image resembled the Nordic he met but he had a standard military haircut

JP: 9am. Nice contact today.

Michael Salla: What happened?

JP: I went Into the Woods. I was hearing a ringing in my ear. I’m thinking it was like a calling. Like I got from the last Contact. I met up with this man. Wearing a United States Air Force suit. Dark blue. His face was different. Possibly a Nordic.

JP: Light blue eyes, blond hair, wearing a United States Air Force Jumpsuit. He was really kind. He said a lot of these craft are going to be seen all over. He invited me to go to the craft. I said no. Yes [he asked] me again if I was sure….  

JP: I told him that we’re gonna start needing video evidence. He told me [that] because [of] a deal they have with the United States and other countries, they can’t.

This is consistent with what contactees such as George Adamski, Howard Menger and others have said about human looking extraterrestrials they each helped blend into local communities to evade recognition by the general public, and even national authorities.

It’s worth noting that the current Russian Prime Minister, Dimitry Medvedev, revealed in December 2012 that when he became President, he was given a highly classified file about how Russian and global authorities register and track extraterrestrials secretly living among the human population.

This all suggests that secret agreements have indeed been reached between public authorities and Nordic extraterrestrials, where any kind of video recording of their existence is not allowed by those they contacted.

I return now to my skype conversation with JP where I queried him on his decision not to accept the Nordic offer to go into his craft:

Michael Salla: Surprised you said no. Did you get a bad feeling at any point?

JP: No, I actually felt happiness, but I was kind of mad because of not getting video.

Michael Salla: Hmmm, would you have been allowed to take photos?

JP: He told me. This kind of ship gonna be seen all over. After he talked to me. He touched me. I had a Flash that I was inside the ship. Floating around. It was a split second. Then he told me you’re back.

Here, JP is suggesting that the “Nordic” had arranged for him to view the interior of the craft without physically going inside. Perhaps astral projection or some other kind of non-physical encounter had occurred.

JP then goes on to ask about the cooperation between the Nordics and the USAF:

JP: I ask him what’s going on with you guys and the United States Air Force. He told me that they’re working on a big project together. A couple of projects in the Gulf of Mexico Involving a couple of MacDill Air Force personnel.

Michael Salla: Why was he wearing a US Air Force uniform?

JP: All these sonic booms are part of the project that they’re doing

Michael Salla: Did it have the USAF Special Operations patch?

In earlier incidents, JP has described being taken on board rectangle shaped spacecraft where he saw occupants in USAF uniforms with the patch of Air Force Special Operations. The incidents occurred next to MacDill Air Force Base, home of US Special Operations Command.

JP said the patch worn by the Nordic was different and contained symbols of a star and crescent.

He later explained to me that the uniform itself featured the acronym, USAF, with the acronym also spelled out in a foreign language he did not immediately recognize, but after he did some internet research he found it appeared to be ancient Sumerian. Apparently, this enabled the Nordic to walk undisturbed inside USAF bases:

JP: Another type of space insignia.

Michael Salla: What made you think it was a USAF uniform and not a Nordic uniform?

JP: To camouflage [himself] in the [USAF] base when they’re walking. It [the patch] had United States Air Force.

Michael Salla: Did he tell you he walks around on USAF bases, MacDill?

JP: … Yes, in other bases around the world

Michael Salla: That makes sense. Did he say how long his group has been working with the USAF in joint projects? When did it start?

JP: We never got far in that conversation. I’m thinking a long time Michael. When he left… I ran to my truck.

Michael Salla: Was the conversation done in English or telepathically?

JP: English. European type. Like people talk in England. The perfect English. Not American.

Michael Salla: Were you able to take any photos?

JP: Yes.

JP said that he was able to take photos of the craft once it took off, but not while it was on the ground. The original photos of the departing craft are located below. The following video contains all the photos he sent, along with zooms of two of the photos.

JP says that while the craft was on the ground, he was about 25 meters from it, but his cell phone didn’t work. He estimated the size of the craft to be about 20 meters in diameter, and it had three window panes which he could see through.

I next asked JP about what the Nordic had told him of the cooperation with the USAF:

Michael Salla: What kind of projects were the Nordics working on with the USAF?

JP: Training how to maneuver the ships. Invasive maneuvers all around United States, in Europe, in  Middle East, Russia, Asia.

Michael Salla: The Nordics were teaching the USAF invasive maneuvers? Can you explain more?

JP How another craft chasing another craft. Is not the same as a jet chasing a jet.

Michael Salla: Were the Nordics sharing technology with the USAF or just know how?

JP: The United States Air Force has the technology but does not know how to correctly use it. Is [like] the comparison of dropping a smartphone to an Indian in the Amazon. The Indian would not know how to charge [the] phone, will not know how to search through …

So basically they’re teaching the technology the physics.  When to use the weapons because the weapons sometimes affect the ability of the craft when it’s flying.

The weapon that the craft has is a pulsing weapon energy superheated.  Beams of light Radioactive, how to interact with thunderstorms to conserve and gain energy.

It’s worth pointing out here that based on the testimonies of William Tompkins, Corey Goode and many others, that the US military industrial complex needed to work with German scientists after World War II, to learn about the technology of crashed extraterrestrial spacecraft that had been recovered from Roswell and elsewhere. I discuss this in detail in my latest book, Antarctica’s Hidden History: Corporate Foundations of Secret Space Programs

Based on JP’s testimony, the USAF in particular is still in need of assistance to understand Nordic extraterrestrial technology, which is more advanced than the recovered spacecraft belonging to small Gray extraterrestrials whose bodies have often been found  inside the crashed vehicles.

It’s worth noting that in previous incidents involving his sightings of USAF aerospace vehicles and Nordic spacecraft, he has been prompted by covert operatives to look in the direction of the craft. This suggests that he is part of a sanctioned disclosure initiative where he is being helped in revealing the existence of an Air Force Secret space program, and their alliance with a human looking group of Nordic extraterrestrials.

JP has said on previous occasions that he has been told that he is not allowed to take videos of the craft, but that photos are OK. He says that when he tries to take videos of the spacecraft he is witnessing, his cell phone stops operating.

I have known JP since 2008 and believe he is accurately revealing events as they have occurred. The photographs provide hard evidence that the incredible events he has witnessed are genuine.

The May 22 episode of Cosmic Disclosure featured a bombshell interview of two insiders, Emery Smith and Corey Goode, who discussed their direct knowledge of classified underground bases and the super advanced technologies used there. They revealed the security protocols, policy oversight, and travel and cloaking technologies secretly used at the bases.

Goode is best known for his first hand experiences inside multiple secret space programs, and also contacts with different extraterrestrial and Inner Earth groups that he began publicly disclosing in late 2014. He says that much of his knowledge of these underground military/corporate bases came through reading briefing documents found in smart glass pads he had access to during his “20 and back” programs, as well as direct personal experience during his covert service.

Goode’s testimony in secret space programs has been extensively covered by David Wilcock in the Cosmic Disclosure series and his book, The Ascension Mysterious; and also in my Secret Space Programs book trilogy. Both Wilcock and I have identified hundreds of sources and documents that corroborate many of Goode’s claims.

Smith publicly emerged as an insider/whistleblower in December 2017 to share his direct experiences in multiple classified programs that began with him being trained as a “Surgical First Assist” by the US Air Force at Kirtland Air Force Base. He has provided a number of documents on his website that substantiate his military training and work as a surgical assistant.

He has two patents granted in 2004 and 2011 featuring innovative medical devices. On his LinkedIn page he refers to two medical papers he has collaborated in writing. I personally spoke with the main author of the first paper written in 2006, Robert J. Mandle, Ph.D., who confirmed Smith’s involvement and his competence as a medical researcher.

Smith has given a number of interviews on Cosmic Disclosure and elsewhere where he has discussed his involvement in corporate/military experiments involving medical examination of approximately 3000 tissues samples from extraterrestrials, hybrids and other exotic life forms. He says that performed autopsies on approximate 250 extraterrestrial bodies at classified underground facilities at Kirtland Air Force Base, and and elsewhere.

In the May 22, Cosmic Disclosure interview, Smith and Goode compared their respective knowledge about security, locations and technologies used at the underground facilities. The interview has been made publicly available for free here. Goode also provides free transcripts of all his Cosmic Disclosure episodes which are available here.

What is remarkable for the listener, is how well Goode’s recollections of what he read in the smart glass pads, matches what Smith described directly experiencing when visiting these underground military/corporate facilities.

Highlights of their discussion was their common knowledge of how hundreds of secret bases in the US alone, while often on military installations, are actually controlled by corporations:

Emery: I’m aware of, in just the U.S. alone, about 300 of these facilities.

Now, when you say government, I want to, like, talk about that, because it’s not always the government that owns these facilities.

They GUARD these facilities – the military does – but they don’t always . . . are in control of the facilities, because they are owned by larger corporations and unknown organizations.

Corey: That have different oversight.

Emery: Exactly.

Corey: Right.

Smith and Goode’s claims here have enormous significance since it reveals how the U.S. military may be kept out of the loop of what is happening on many classified projects which are run on military installations by corporations.

This brings to mind an incident from 1997 involving Rear Admiral Tom Wilson, who was briefed on a classified UFO related project by Dr. Steven Greer and Dr. Edgar Mitchell (Apollo 14 astronaut), but was denied access by corporate attorneys. What made the incident quite remarkable was that Admiral Wilson at the time was the J-2, head of Intelligence for the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Smith and Goode further discussed how the hundreds of bases in the US, others around the planet and even off planet are connected via a highly developed maglev rail system:

Corey: … Some of the bases are . . . you cannot access them from the ground whatsoever. You have to go through the tram system, the secret tram system underground.

Emery: Yeah.

Corey: And the only entrance and exit is through that tram system…. And often, they will be very deep, as I’ve said before. At a certain depth, you’re no longer considered in United States territory…. And so you then have free rein.

Emery: Absolutely, yeah…. And I was getting to that, because once you get down there, you have to take the tram.

And many of them have different types of maglev and lavatube devices to get you there…. And you can actually wear a seat belt in these things, but you don’t need to. You don’t even know you’re going because it’s so fluid, and it gets up to such a high speed.

And I don’t know how fast that is, but I heard some of these can go over 500 miles per hour.

Corey: Yeah, I was hearing over 700.

Emery: Yeah. So once you get there, whether you’re taking the chair, the gondola, or you’re taking these maglev tubes – the egg thing – once you get there, then you have to still go through another security checkpoint.

Corey: Because you could be in another country for all you know.

Emery: Right. Or another planet.

Corey: Right. Exactly. I was actually talking about that recently, about how . . . Recently, when I was brought up to the Lunar Operation Command, I was brought into a room for a briefing, and there was a window.

And I looked out the window, and I saw Mars.

Emery: Ha, ha. Yes.

Corey: And I was told that a lot of times, people will take these trams. And much like I took a tram, and it ended up on another planet . . .

Emery: Yes.

Both Smith and Goode have provided a lot of additional details about the capabilities of the secret underground shuttle system that was first exposed in 1995 by Phil Schneider in a series of interviews that culminated in his murder/suicide months later in January 1996, and in a book authored by Dr. Richard Sauder, Underground Bases and Tunnels: What is the Government Trying to Hide (1995).

Additionally, Wilcock pointed out some of the others that have come forward since Schneider and Sauder’s ground breaking revelations:

Let me also just say for the record that Bob Dean, Pete Peterson, Jacob and Henry Deacon have all reported on this phenomenon of sub-shuttle systems where you get transported somewhere else, and you don’t even realize it. You’re just riding in the thing, and you go somewhere else.

Wilcock asked Smith and Goode what they knew about the metallic element Thorium in relation to underground bases:

Corey: Well, I know that in the programs, the craft, research vessel, I was assigned to, originally it was nuclear. And then they replaced it with a thorium based.

And then they replaced it with some sort of an electromagnetic engine that had these long tubes that they would put something in that they called “minnow baskets” that would spin.

And if you move it up and down, you get a little bit of play in the electromagnetics.

Emery: Right.

Corey: And I think it’s some sort of electromagnetic friction that’s going around. And these leads are picking up the energy and shooting it wirelessly through the tubes, which then go directly to these huge capacitors.

Emery: Right. Yeah, a lot of capacitors are used in these bases to hold the energy.

I’m not an expert at thorium, but I was recently on a project where a private organization – a private corporation – hired me to . . . They sent out people all over the United States – a scientific team – to find the LARGEST deposit of thorium here in the United States.

And I know exactly where that’s at. And that is also in New Mexico. I’m not going to tell you the city it’s located near, but I’ll tell you it’s in New Mexico.

And there’s an unlimited amount of thorium there that could power all the planets, and all the bases, and, of course, us right here indefinitely – INDEFINITELY – I mean with the amount of energy we already currently use.

Smith and Goode are revealing that Thorium is used in a cold fusion process that provides a virtually unlimited power supply for covert projects and spacecraft.

Smith and Goode go on to discuss the latest hologram technology, and how incredibly advanced it has become to the extent that holograms can physically appear to be hard and even have mass:

Corey: Yeah, lots of that technology – the masking technology with holograms.

Emery: Lots of it.

Corey: They’ve even developed holograms to a point to where they have mass.

Emery: Right.

Corey: Or they call them “hard light”, to where they can . . .

Emery: You can cast a shadow.

Corey: Yeah, you can do a hologram, and you can walk up and “tink, tink, tink,” like a piece of glass.

Or even they can make it even thicker in depth….

Emery: Yeah, I totally can attest to that as well, and I was part of . . . not part of that, but there was compartmentalized projects near me during that that were working on satellites that could do that, or they were putting that technology in satellites in the early ’90s, and I think it was probably before that.

Corey: Yeah. What’s crazy is they’ll have a hard light panel. They remove the source of the power or electricity, and it stays.

Emery: Right.

Project Bluebeam features Holographic technology to simulate an alien false flag event

Smith’s and Goode’s corroboration of their respective experiences and knowledge of technologies used at underground bases is highly significant, given extensive documentation possessed by Smith validating his core claim of having been a trained surgical assistant that participated in covert autopsies of dead extraterrestrials conducted at Kirtland Air Force base and other classified locations.

The conclusion emerging from their first joint “Cosmic Summit” interview is that Smith’s experiences and documentation corroborate key elements of things Goode has been saying since late 2014. This is important supporting evidence for those still undecided about the veracity of Goode’s incredible claims.

Smith and Goode will be appearing together in future Cosmic Disclosure episodes, and will again compare their experiences and knowledge about highly classified programs. This upcoming series of “Cosmic Summit” interviews is essential viewing for all seeking the truth about secret space programs.
