Today began the Citizen Hearing on (UFO) Disclosure at the National Press Club. Six former members of the US Congress began hearing 40 witnesses and experts reveal what they know about UFOs, and the extraterrestrial hypothesis – that some UFOs are interplanetary spacecraft. In the first two panels, four experts in each testified about the history of the UFO phenomenon and the likelihood that they are guided by an extraterrestrial intelligence. The event is being live streamed to the world. For organizer Stephen Bassett the hearings aim to stimulate the U.S. Congress to investigate the issue of UFOs, and whether they are alien in origin. The ultimate goal for Bassett is to pressure the executive branch of the US government to disclose what they know about UFOs, extraterrestrial life and technology, and lift what he calls the “government truth embargo.”

The motto for the Citizen Hearing is: “If the Congress won’t do it’s job, the people will.” The Citizen Hearing hopes to progress beyond earlier UFO disclosure related events at the National Press club – the first was in May 2001 – and get the U.S. Congress to act. Unlike earlier UFO events which were hold over a two hour period or so, the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure will last five full days. The former Congressional members will hear 30 hours of witness and expert testimony on UFOs, and the extraterrestrial hypothesis. Bassett succeeded in raising over a million dollars to fund his Citizen Hearing and related projects. Each Congressional member is being paid $20,000 which is a nice paycheck to hear people speak passionately about a topic that the former member may have had little active interest or knowledge about previously. This has led to some criticism, but so far Bassett appears vindicated insofar as the former Congress members have demonstrated keen insights into the political process and what is feasible in getting the current U.S. Congress take the UFO issue seriously.

The common element for the witnesses and experts is that the UFO phenomenon is very real, and raises profound questions about the occupants and their intentions. Are they extraterrestrials, interdimensionals, time travelers or something else? Why are they here, what are they trying to achieve by flying in our skies, and why has there been an official cover-up of this information? In the first two panels, the experts focused on the physical and documentary evidence to substantiate what they know about UFOs, and offered helpful insights into questions about the occupants of UFOs and their intentions.

The Congressional members agreed with the approach taken by the experts, and asked about the physical evidence of UFOs and whether it could be submitted for the public record. Interestingly, the role of religion came up a few times in discussions. It appeared that religion offered a means of moving forward on UFO disclosure, in the face of official political resistance. One of the experts, Daniel Sheehan, a former legal counsel to the Jesuit headquarters in Washington DC pointed out the Vatican’s interest in UFOs and extraterrestrial life. Now that we have a Jesuit Pope, Francis 1, the Vatican could play the lead role in disclosing the truth about UFOs and extraterrestrial visitation as Congressional members suggested. Indeed a recent book, Exovaticana, argues that the Catholic Church plans to do precisely this.

All the members of Congress appeared genuinely impressed by the quality of the expert testimony and the range of official documents available for public review. By lunch time of the first day, the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure already has succeeded in getting evidence of UFOs and the extraterrestrial hypothesis taken seriously, at least by former members of the U.S. Congress.

MSNBC Recognizes the Citizen’s Hearing on Disclosure. Who Will Follow Suit?

By Giorgio Piacenza

image002On April 12, 2013, The Rachel Maddow Show from MSNBC gave us a full segment on the upcoming Citizen’s Hearing on Disclosure to be held in Washington DC between April 29 and May 5, 2013. Her segment was titled “Watch This Space”  and mentioned that, not long ago, the White House was forced to respond (after receiving 12,000 signatures) to a “We the People Petition” to reveal an extraterrestrial presence visiting Earth. While the White House’s Office of  Science & Technology Policy responded in the negative in that “there is no credible evidence” for this.  Could it be that the White House will indefinitely represent the policy of official denial in a world in which Brazil, Mexico, Chile, Belgium, England and other countries are revealing part of the UFO report files? Can a simple denial from an Office (which  probably is neither informed, or has cared to carefully investigate) appease the general citizenry (perhaps for a few more decades) and that’s about it?

Probably, official denial won’t hold too much water this time as a 5-day marathon fake hearing in a room configured at the National Press Club to resemble a Senate hearing with the participation of 5 genuine former members of Congress.  This event invites us all who are convinced that there is serious credible evidence of the extraterrestrial presence to support -as Ed Komarek says-our leaders for them to come out finding the courage to treat this subject seriously. We should be healing, rather than negative about our leaders since we are all part of the same human situation facing an eye-opening reality. It is a big step for our leaders to take as initially worldviews are questioned and “orthodox” science (it wouldn’t be likely for ETs  to get here they say) which is the official “common sense” standard for most institutionally-focused persons would also be questioned.   However as Rachel Maddow showed (taking an honest initiative among the large U.S. networks), it may take a make believe congressional hearing to allow the Government to take notice move on with the issue (as the U.S. is one of the world’s last holdouts of official government denial of a major country’s interest in the UFO phenomenon).

This is news as it may well be a sure-footed beginning…not unlike taking a first step into a new direction that can change the destiny of a major journey; a first long-lasting, political-cultural step towards recognizing the legitimacy and respect for the issue of the many important (legal, scientific, philosophical, spiritual, political) implications of a genuine extraterrestrial presence. More news networks and opinion-guiding institutions should follow (unless told to keep away or to downplay it?) in one way or another even if their spoke persons -by training and habit- may still attempt to throw to us a reaction-provoking, tongue-and-cheek style, either to dismiss or simply to create a form of controversy.  Bryce Zabel and Richard Dolan’s analytically-adequate book A.D. (After Disclosure) might also become newsworthy, at least among the next generation of the daring intelligentsia trying to catch up with the Exopolitical issues that should have been recognized about 65 years ago (and are already being seriously discussed by individuals like Michael E. Salla and Manuel Lamiroy).

Rachel Maddow announced that the five former senators will be paid $ 20,000 each to conduct the hearings. I don’t know about that detail but I know that the witnesses in general are seriously reporting very real -even if incredible- aspects of a worldwide phenomenon that could be admitted in many objective and impartial courts and that has been officially and non-officially recognized since the 1940’s but which, in spite of enormous amounts of adequate evidence (including physically analyzed alien implants ) it has been largely ignored, debunked, laughed at and distorted by most of our cultural, political, scientific and religious leaders.  Let’s study the whole of the Exopolitical phenomena inclusively, both in its objective and in its qualitative aspects.

Other important pro-disclosure events (like Dr. Steven Greer’s Disclosure Project gathering of important witnesses in 2001 at the National Press Club) have taken place and interest has peaked and subsided as the media gave a lukewarm coverage to them. However, Larry King from CNN was valiant enough to interview several key witnesses as well. This time there is a greater opportunity for the issue to cease being in the entertaining fringe boondocks of Fantasia and to gradually (or even sooner) become a cultural “meme” as seriously considered as the national debt or other normal political concerns. The more respectable individuals like former Canadian Minister of Defence Paul Hellyer speak up, the less movers and shakers and regular folk will try to look the other way (so as to look respectable within formal culture). The less the issue elicits smirks, fear, denial or excessive, blinding enthusiasm , the more we’ll be able to collectively deal with its implications, change our selves on purpose as adults and (literally) soar to the Cosmos. My take on this is that dangerous technological secrets (one of the valid reasons for the cover-up/truth embargo) will still be kept for quite some time and -after some degree of official disclosure- we will continue with our lives while gradually opening up to a whole new world in which science, metaphysics and spirituality are seen as a more complete kind of knowledge.  Moreover, the possibility of strengthening positive, mutually-respectful relations with conscious human choice-respecting varieties of ETs could also come to fruition as this option would be in the natural interest of most people on Earth.

Let’s Support our Leaders UFO/ET Discosure Efforts

By Ed Komarek

Earthdaysiriusdocumentary-300x424Not since Operation Right To Know (ORTK) has there been the potential to gain as much mainstream media attention for disclosure, and of course as much controversy.  Anybody that attempts to break out of the Bilderberg CIA’s constraints and marginalization imposed upon us in the mainstream media will be attacked from both without and within.  This just goes with the territory.

The CIA’s assets in particular, the Washington AP, the Washington Post, New York Times and the LA Times can be counted on to mostly succeed in keeping the UFO community marginalized by using denigrating words and phrases, as well as attention to the Exo-flakes and Exo-scammers in the UFO/ET field.  This is all about information warfare, a 70 year covert attack on public consciousness by the Globalist Elite, to maintain control over ET technology and information.

     The propaganda press moves in on the early stages of a developing story, not only with UFOs, but in general, to propagandize and spin the collective conversation in the favor of the Globalist Mafia to control the rest of the mass media.  The CIA has even admitted publicly that they have their assets in every newswire and major newspaper in the country.  Furthermore, the Chairmen of these key media outlets attend the annual Bilderberg conferences and have been praised by David Rockefeller himself for not exposing Bilderberg, and for supporting Bilderberg’s Orwellian New World Order.
     Steven Greer using the Sirius Documentary is attacking the heart of the Bilderberg Mafia’s meal ticket, the secret classified monopoly on trillions of dollars being made reverse engineering ET technology and suppression of other technologies.  These technologies threaten established obsolete institutions, like the fossil fuels industry, transportation industry and medical industry. No matter that these centuries old mafia families destroy our civilization and the earth in the process, putting us into an evolutionary dead end!
     Steven Bassett is using the Citizen Hearings to break the Truth Embargo and move Exopolitics into the mainstream conversation.  The public conversation should be steered away from Unidentified Flying Objects that maybe exist, to Exopolitics and the issues and implications of contact.  Steve Basset is building a strong public foundation on whistleblower testimony same as Steven Greer has already done.
     Richard Dolan, one of our best, told me when he interviewed me recently for two hours on his radio program, that he supports Exopolitics as based on hypotheticals, but for me and those that have had direct and indirect contact it’s based on reality.  I have burrowed down locally to become directly involved with local contactees who have become good friends and experienced indirectly communications from the ETs themselves.  In one case my friends videotaped a craft and after I saw it, we had to erase the videotape as requested by the ETs.  These types of personal experiences run through many of my blog articles.
    Now that both these disclosure indicatives are hitting the mainstream press the controversy is heating up in the UFO community just as it did for us in ORTK.  In the case of Sirius, Steven is using a purported very small human with alien genetics to help market his Sirius Disclosure Documentary and his more general Sirius indicatives.  He is taking a risk that this could blow up on him, but I don’t think he is stupid enough to go out on a limb on this without feeling very confident that the limb is strong.  Steven is now taking heat also for “gasp” trying to raise significant sums of money for his greater indicatives and using his disclosure movie in the process  This is understandably upsetting some of his donors who expected the movie to be free to the public.
     Steven Bassett and the Citizen Hearing are taking controversy because his donor who is making another documentary using the Hearing, is paying former members of Congress $20,000 each to attend the Hearing.  Excuse me, but considering the fear of ridicule and the corrupt nature of politics today, how are you going to get members of Congress at a hearing without a large payment.
     The purists say not to play the money game to make disclosure, and maybe they have a point to some degree, but just look at my own modest disclosure effort promoting my book.  UFOs Exopolitics and the New World Disorder available on Amazon is the best foundation book for Exopolitics presently available.  It has the potential to greatly assist in disclosure by providing a solid credible briefing based on the credible evidence supporting Exopolitics, and even more important takes the reader beyond collections and analysis, to issues and implications of contact.  We are fighting a formidable adversary that has a huge advantage over us in this psywar.  This is because they moved directly from collections and analysis to issues and implications to exploit ET technology and protect their institutions and industries 70 years ago.
     I have no marketing money supporting my modest disclosure drive. I am only reaching thousands of people mostly through distribution of the free Kindle Downloads in these special promotions allowed to me and through blog articles such as this one.  The purists even have a problem with a little trickle down money coming to me from paid sales of the well formatted print book and the Kindle.
     This, even though I have the book priced on Amazon at half the price of most books.  I make about the amount of my social security check of 350 dollars a month in royalties, so I figure I am making pennies an hour right now for all the effort I have put into this book.  I have spent 40 years researching and promoting disclosure at a cost of thousands of dollars right out of my own back pocket.  I even get criticized on the social networks for promoting the free Kindles. Jeez.
     Steven Greer and Steve Bassett are working with hundreds of thousands of dollars and they are reaching millions perhaps billions of people.  Let’s get real folks, even though it’s a corrupt system based on money, there is a place for people working within the system as well as those working outside the system like myself.
     Furthermore how come if our leaders in the UFO community are doing so badly that the critics don’t get out and pull the disclosure wagon themselves.  Why, because they are afraid and to disempowered to do so.  Now don’t get me wrong, there is a place for critics and I value honest criticism. We can’t let the Exo-frauds and Exo-flakes hijack the emerging field of Exopolitics before we hardly get off the ground.
     Some people feel like Steven Greer is running a scam just for the money, but look at what the man has been through all these years, as he is going to bring out in the Sirius Documentary.  Maybe there is some validity in the critic’s criticisms of Steven because he does exaggerate, but who’s perfect and Steven understands marketing.  Is Steven marketing something real or his he marketing a fraud?  I am still willing to give Steven the benefit of the doubt.
     What I am saying to the rest of the UFO community, and I think top people like Richard Dolan have also indicated, is give these folks a chance.  Of course the CIA’s assets in the mainstream media are going to do their best to attack the weak links in the chain and avoid the strong links.  This just goes with the territory.  Do we just retreat into a corner when we get a beating like whipped dogs, or do we fight back with everything we got!!!  If the critics got a better way to break the 70 year old Truth Embargo, I say show us what you can do, or otherwise just chill out for a while.
