From: Paradigm Research Group <PRG.nul> Date: Mon, 13 Aug 2012 15:03:17 -0700 Archived: Tue, 14 Aug 2012 09:27:32 -0400 Subject: PRG Update - August 13 2012 PRG Paradigm Research Group PRG Update - August 13, 2012 Archived at: http://tinyurl.com/3oktofa An Extraordinary 40 Days www.paradigmresearchgroup.org/newsitems2012.html In a span of six weeks the following happened: In late June the story broke a retired senior CIA officer, Chase Brandon, had publicly stated Rowell 1947 was the crash of an extraterrestrial vehicle with bodies. In early July the United Kingdom released yet another batch of UFO/ET files from its archives. In late July Australia, a very, very close intelligence ally of the United States, proactively released for the first time UFO/ET related documents from government files. In early August the story broke a retired Air Force Lt. Col., Richard French, who flew combat mission in Korea and Vietnam and worked in military intelligence, stated Roswell 1947 was the crash of an extraterrestrial vehicle. October Surprise? http://tinyurl.com/9uql4ey PRG has noted with interest an article in Space.com which came out today. There is some speculation on the Web an announcement about Mars life could come out conveniently prior to the November election. PRG considers this a distinct possibility. There are two likely options: 1) confirmation of life on Mars long dead, and 2) confirmation of life (likely microbial) now. The second option would have the greatest impact on the election prospects of the President. Degree of confidence in this outcome: 60%. Commentary In a recent exchange with colleagues, I wrote the follow in response to a comment there is a "self-coverup" and the larger public don't want Disclosure and won't listen to the awareness efforts underway. I thought to share this response with the PRG list. I would suggest that given the extraordinary complexity of what is a global phenomena, it is not possible to easily assess the disposition of seven billion people and two hundred nations toward the truth of a reality that has been deliberately suppressed. Denial is the critical separation between the Disclosure movement and all the great social/political activist movements of the 20th Century. No person and no government denied there was segregation in America. None denied the British were a colonial occupier of India, that South Africa practiced apartheid, that woman did not have a universal right to vote in the United States, that a war was underway in South East Asia. The governments of all nations, by intention or by acquiescence, have denied there is an extraterrestrial presence at all and therefore nothing to disclose. This is unprecedented at such a scale. That is why one of the key tasks of the Disclosure movement is to raise public awareness of the truth of the matter. The governments have billions of dollars to maintain denial. We have thousands of dollars to increased awareness. There is one account that makes this distinction quite well. When Laurance Rockefeller initially approached the Office of Science and Technology Policy in 1993 the OSTP wanted nothing to do with it. Had Laurance not been a friend of the Clintons, it could well have stopped right there. Laurance happened to "let it be known" he was considering placing full page ads in major newspapers across the country calling for the release of all files, amnesty for witnesses and other considerations. It would have cost millions. He was quickly told that would not be necessary and the OSTP would work with him on his initiative towards the President. A close call for the truth embargo. How I wish Laurance had placed those ads. With that in mind, how many entertainment and sports celebrities or progressive entrepreneurs or established activist organizations could place those ads tomorrow and barely miss the money? Quoting Captain Jones, "we have only just begun to fight." Disclosure, like suffrage, like civil rights, like Indian independence, like Apartheid's end, is inevitable. It is only a matter of how soon. And how soon is only a matter of will and determination. Disclosure Petition IV - Chase Brandon www.disclosurepetition.info http://tinyurl.com/8kh7q8j The petition placing the recent statements of retired CIA senior officer Chase Brandon on the White House website completed its 30-day run as of August 10. A fifth Disclosure petition will go up later this month. PRG does not expect the White House "We the People" project to last beyond the November election. It was basically a campaign ploy to engage voters, and the public has lost interest. However, it has made it possible for the extraterrestrial presence issue to reside on the White House website for the first time in history. It also generated a formal response from the White House to the basic Disclosure demand - also a first. Disclosure Petition - Change.org http://tinyurl.com/7jabaop PRG has placed a basic Disclosure petition at Change.org, that can be signed. When you have a moment, mosey on over and toss another shrimp on the barbie and leave a comment. World Disclosure Day www.worlddisclousreday.org WDD now has 5350 endorsements including 250 organizations. New efforts are needed to raise awareness of WDD and get the endorsements over 10,000. If you have not yet endorsed WDD, swing by the website and add your support. PRG Media Archive/ Direct Media Archive www.paradigmresearchgroup.org/newsitems2012.html www.paradigmresearchgroup.org/direct_media_archive.htm There are now 6310 mainstream (no ET/UFO/Paranormal media), English language articles on the UFO/ET phenomena from newspapers, magazines, television/radio websites worldwide archived on the PRG website. Over the past 24 months PRG has noted a 20% decline per year in the number of such articles being generated by mainstream media. Two possible explanations for this decline are: 1) an acceptance by the media that sightings in particular are no longer news. They happen all the time and the accounts are very similar. This is perfectly understandable. 2) the growing number of articles being generated by "direct media." To some extent the mainstream media are electing to leave such coverage to "direct media." PRG defines "direct media" as structured news and commentary venues where journalists and non-journalists can publish directly to the public without an editor or fact checker. Over the past 24 months the number of such articles has exploded to the point it has been difficult to maintain the PRG Direct Media Archive. Some of these venues compensate the writers; some do not. In some cases compensation is based upon page views or ad clickovers. PRG is not aware of any mainstream media venues which pay writers in that fashion, but it is possible. Obviously, such compensation raises journalistic issues. But to be fair, mainstream journalist's compensation is indirectly dependent on readership levels or television/radio ratings. At this time the direct media venues that are publishing the most ET/UFO/Exopolitical articles in order by number are the following: Examiner - www.examiner.com Gather - www.gather.com The Canadian - www.agoracosmopolitan.com American Chronicle - ww.americanchronicle.com OpEd News - www.opednews.com Direct media articles must be approached with a different set of criteria. Caveat lector strongly applies and quality varies more widely. That said, this new genre helps fill the gap created by the government imposed truth embargo which has prevented standard media from appropriately covering the UFO/ET issue since the 1950's. PRG will continue to archive direct media articles, but encourages readers to recognize these distinctions.
