PRG Update – October 12, 2011
Disclosure Petition Update
As of this Update the Disclosure Petition has 9577 signatures. That is 21st out of 188 petitions filed on the White House website trending 11th out of 100 petitions with new signatures. It is worth noting that six of the petitions with more signatures address the same issue – reforming the marijuana laws. Therefore, by issue the Disclosure petition is 16th out of 183. There has been further media coverage which is archived at the DP info site.
On October 5th the White House announced the threshold for petitions to be formally considered by the administration had been raised from 5000 signatures in 30 days to 25,000. This caused some concern. However, as stated on the White House site, this increase is not retroactive to petitions filed before October 5.
Regarding the response process the White House website states: “Once the petition reaches the required threshold, it will be put in a queue to be reviewed by the White House. Others can still sign the petition while it is awaiting a response from the White House. When the White House responds, everyone who has signed the petition will get email from the White House to let you know that we’ve reviewed and responded to the petition.”
This means there will be more time to build the signature count while the Disclosure Petition is being reviewed. The 5,000 threshold was critical to the review process, the overall count is critical to the amount of media coverage.
All nations can sign this petition (the Zip Code field is optional). A reachable goal is 20,000 signatures by the end of October. Share the link via Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, YouTube, email lists and websites.
World Disclosure Day Update
WDD now has 4689 endorsements from around the world. The next likely developments will be a celebrity endorsement and additional media coverage. WDD along with the DP offer two referenda where anyone from any nation can sign their desire to know the truth about the extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race.
UFOs and the Evolution of Consciousness – Oct. 21-23
UFOs and the Evolution of Consciousness is sponsored by the New York chapter of the Friends of the Institute of Noetic Sciences (FIONS). IONS is an organization founded by Apollo 14 astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell to study the bridge between science and consciousness “noetics”. FIONS was co-founded by PRG’s great friend and supporter, the late Sandra Shepard (Sandy) Wright.
2011 Project Mexo – Hong Kong
Exopolitics Hong Kong and Meoow Guide will produce an online conference later this year. Project Mexo wil be a live audience link up with researchers, exopolitical activists and contactees from around the world. Featured speakers will include: Dr Michael Salla, Paola Harris, Stephen Basset, Mary Rodwell, Jim Sparks, Neil Freer, Dr. C. B. Scott Jones and Al J. Gevaerd with more to be added to this first of its kind, international online link up conference with a live Chinese audience in Hong Kong.
NASA and Dr. Edgar Mitchell (Commentary)
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration is one of the more obvious victims of the truth embargo regarding an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race. Over the years it has earned its aka “Never A Straight Answer,” but it had no choice in the matter. From the day it was born with the 1958 Space Act it was caught between a Moon rock and a hard place because of the following language in the Act:
Section 102 b) The Congress declares that the general welfare and security of the United States require that adequate provision be made for aeronautical and space activities. The Congress further declares that such activities shall be the responsibility of, and shall be directed by, a civilian agency exercising control over aeronautical and space activities sponsored by the United States, except that activities peculiar to or primarily associated with the development of weapons systems, military operations, or the defense of the United States (including the research and development necessary to make effective provision for the defense of the United States) shall be the responsibility of, and shall be directed by, the Department of Defense……..
NASA could have found a dozen extraterrestrial bases on the Moon and it would have been unable to say anything, show anything, take any actions without approval from the DOD – and it wasn’t going to get it. As the years went by and the evidence for an ET presence grew NASA, when questioned, could only refuse to comment, lie or deflect direct inquiries.
It is for this reason PRG has been generally sympathetic with NASA’s plight and has not focused its advocacy efforts on this quasi civilian agency. The most irritating action by NASA since 1958 was its support of SETI, a science front organization developed to help maintain the truth embargo and deflect pressure from NASA and the government on the ET question – in other words a science propaganda tool of the state. But again, it likely had no choice.
I have said many times the truth embargo will make fools of us all one way or another and this is the case with some NASA knucklehead who, with or without the approval of the Director, decided it would be a good idea to sue Dr. Edgar Mitchell over a camera from the Apollo 14 Lunar Module returned to Earth by Dr. Mitchell rather than be crashed into the Lunar surface.
Many such artifacts were retrieved by Apollo astronauts and no other Apollo astronaut has ever been impugned in this way.
PRG is absolutely convinced this is an effort by NASA to embarrass an American hero who has been speaking truth to power since 1997 regarding the ET reality. In that he was following in the footsteps of another American hero, Mercury astronaut Gordon Cooper.
The American space program conducted between 1959 and 1972 was perhaps the greatest achievement in human history. Every Mercury, Gemini and Apollo astronaut well knew the extraordinary opportunity NASA provided for them to be part of that history. They have all been loyal to the agency. Gordon Cooper, Dr. Story Musgrave, Dr. Brian O’Leary and Dr. Edgar Mitchell steadfastly avoided criticizing NASA as they spoke of the ET issue and the truth embargo over the past 25 years.
The 64-year truth embargo is in its final days and has been slowly collapsing since 2000. Anyone in government who mistakenly thinks this embargo continues to shield them when taking outrageous actions against researchers, activists, witnesses or contactees will be made the fool. That time has passed.
Dr. Edgar Mitchell, a great American in his 81st year, should not be treated in this manner. It is an absolute disgrace.
If you agree with this assessment, PRG would appreciate your informing NASA of your views.
