Space-Top-Secret-ActivitiesEver wondered what kinds of highly classified military programs are happening in outer space?  Well if you happen to know something about one of them then chances are that it’s an Unacknowledged Special Access Program (USAP) and it’s a criminal offense to reveal anything about it to others. That creates a problem for the field of astropolitics which is dedicated to studying activities in outer space.

As a field of study that began with the launch of the Soviet Sputnik satellite in 1957 and subsequent treaties ratified by space faring nations, astropolitics has grown into a multidisciplinary science studying a wide array of political, legal, economic and social issues related to publicly acknowledged activities in outer space. Yet when it comes to USAP’s there is precious little that is known about them by astropolitics scholars other than they exist and may impact “acknowledged” space activities in important areas of interest.

This week, a novel approach to this problem was proposed in a respected peer reviewed academic journal on astropolitics that went live online on March 3. USAPs are a problem better left to the field of exopolitics which uses a very different approach to understanding what is happening in outer space.

 The latest edition of Astropolitics: The International Journal of Space Politics & Policy contains a paper titled, “Astropolitics and the ‘Exopolitics’ of Unacknowledged Activities in Outer Space.” For those that don’t yet know, exopolitics is broadly defined as the study of extraterrestrial life and its political implications, which raises much controversy among space scientists since most believe hard evidence is yet to be found for alien life.

This has led to exopolitical scholars developing a range of social scientific tools to examine the available “soft” evidence that extraterrestrial life has been discovered and has been the subject of highly classified military/corporate programs for as much as seven decades. This soft evidence largely comprises whistleblower and first hand testimonies based on direct personal experiences. These testimonies are both hard to substantiate, yet difficult to completely dismiss. Something to be expected if the testimonies do genuinely involve USAPs.

This is where exopolitics offers astropolitics scholars a way of resolving the dilemma of what to do about USAPs. Many space scientists believe that in the absence of hard evidence, it is a waste of time speculating about what is happening with USAPs and the impact on space. Yet not to examine available soft evidence would mean that USAPs would continue indefinitely without any risk of exposure even though they may be significantly impacting on important space activities. The possibility that the impact may violate space treaties is an important area of concern.

The exopolitics approaches offers a way out of this dilemma since it can examine the available soft evidence in a way that does not compromise the discipline of astropolitics which would continue to focus on hard evidence concerning publicly acknowledged space activities. As a complement or sub-field of astropolitics, exopolitics offers a means of gaining insight into USAPs without turning astropolitics into a speculative field of study.

Whether the proposal to incorporate exopolitics research into the astropolitics discipline succeeds or not, it is significant that the term “exopolitics” has now officially entered the academic lexicon. This suggests that at least some space scientists are interested in learning more about USAPs in Space. The day when astropolitics scholars begin learning about all activities in outer space, acknowledged and unacknowledged, may be arriving a lot sooner than expected.

Note: The article, “Astropolitics and the Exopolitics of Unacknowledged Space Activities” is available to subscribers of the Journal of Astropolitics here. An earlier version, the “Author’s Accepted Manuscript,” is available to non-subscribers here.

Ukraine-exopolitics-conflict-650

A hacked phone call between the Estonian Foreign Minister and EU Foreign Affairs chief, Catherine Ashton, reveals that snipers responsible for the death of protesters were not from the deposed Ukrainian government. The hacked phone call was made available to the RT news service and today was the subject of a number of news reports. The hacked call reveals that the snipers targeted both protesters and police. According to the call, there was a need to investigate, but there was no incentive among the new Euromaidan approved Ukrainian transition government to do so. The hacked call reveals that a mysterious third force was operating to destabilize the previous Ukrainian government run by President Yanukovych by making it appear responsible for the sniper attacks.

According to Kurt Nimmo from Infowars.com, the sniper attacks were part of an Operation Gladio type operation run by covert operatives designed to create chaos that would promote a pro-European agenda. In this case, the goal was to discredit the Ukrainian government run by Viktor Yanukovych, in order to ultimately detach Ukraine from the Russian sphere of influence. The hacked phone call is evidence of a covert operation by a mysterious third force – an international power elite – intending to undermine the Russian Federation and the policies of President Vladimir Putin. While the immediate target of the covert operation is fairly transparent, fathoming the deeper agenda is more difficult. One possibility is that the covert operation may ultimately be a response to what has been described as Putin’s “exopolitics agenda.”

The startling revelations in the hacked phone call were made by the Estonian Foreign Minister, Urmas Paet, after doing a fact finding tour of the Ukraine on February 25, and interviewing key witnesses. Among those interviewed was Olga Bogomolets who was the chief doctor for the Maidan mobile clinic giving medical assistance to wounded protesters. Bogomolets had earlier turned down the position of Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine for Humanitarian Affairs offered by the Euromaidan appointed government. Paet told Catherine Ashton:

And second, what was quite disturbing, this same Olga [Bogomolets] told as well that all the evidence shows that the people who were killed by snipers from both sides, among policemen and then people from the streets, that they were the same snipers killing people from both sides.”

Paet went on to explain more of Bogomolets’ astounding reveleations:

There is now stronger and stronger understanding that behind the snipers, it was not Yanukovych, but it was somebody from the new coalition … So that she then also showed me some photos she said that as a medical doctor she can say that it is the same handwriting, the same type of bullets, and it’s really disturbing that now the new coalition, that they don’t want to investigate what exactly happened,”

The hacked phone call reveals that European governments are aware that the Yanukovych administration was likely not responsible for the sniper attacks on Euromaidan protestors. The newly appointed Ukrainian government is reluctant to investigate since this would bring into question its own legitimacy in orchestrating the removal of President Yanukovych and his administration. The ultimate result is that the Ukraine is now experiencing chaos as a result of divided loyalties between the current and former government administrations.

In a previous article titled, “Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine and exopolitics,” it was claimed that President Putin had taken proactive action in response to what he claimed was covert actions authorized by an international power elite. Furthermore, it was claimed that Putin was quietly implementing an “exopolitics agenda” of leaking information about extraterrestrial life to the Russian and world publics. In doing so, Putin was challenging a seven decades old secrecy policy implemented by the same international power elite responsible for the Ukraine crisis. If the article’s claims about Putin’s “exopolitics agenda” is accurate, that provides a possible answer to the deeper agenda behind the covert operation involving sniper attacks on Euromaidan protestors. Ultimately, the chaos in the Ukraine may be a result of a secret exopolitics conflict between Putin’s Russia and the international power elite responsible for maintaining secrecy about UFOs and extraterrestrial life.

In a Press Conference televised today, Russian President Vladimir Putin declared that it was unlikely that Russia would take over Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula. He declared: “We have reinforced protection of our military facilities, because we were receiving threats and saw that gunmen from terrorist organizations were coming,”   Russia’s military actions in the Crimea has sparked international condemnation with Western leaders calling for a coordinated response, and taking symbolic diplomatic actions to punish Russia. In contrast, President Putin declared in his Press Conference that the recent events in Ukraine was an “illegitimate state coup” orchestrated by the intelligence communities of the U.S. and Europe that arranged for the overthrow of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych.  According to Putin, Russia’s military intervention was merely a proactive measure to defend Russian nationals in a territory that has been historically part of the Russia. U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry attacked Russia for brazenly violating the sovereignty of a U.N. member state on trumped up charges. Kerry today stated, “not a single piece of credible evidence” supported Russia’s intervention, ironically forgetting that the same could be said for the U.S. led invasion of Iraq based on non-existent weapons of mass destruction.

Ukraine is but the latest in a series of former territories of the Soviet Union that have been courted with membership offers to the European Union (EU) and promised eventual membership of NATO. As former Soviet era territories continue to join the EU and eventually NATO, the effect is to gradually squeeze the Russian sphere of influence, and make Russia subservient to the agenda of the Western power elite.  In the chess board of international politics, Ukraine is but a pawn in a grand strategy to checkmate Russia. Why? What makes Russia so politically dangerous to the Western power elite? Is it Russia’s nuclear arsenal? Is it Russia’s political tradition of standing up to forces of international banking and the Western power elite? Or is it another deeper form of international politics being played out with Russia – exopolitics? Is Russia’s main threat to the Western power elite a carefully orchestrated policy of slowly leaking information concerning UFOs and extraterrestrial life to its citizenry and the world?

To find the truth of whether Putin’s Russia is quietly pursuing an “exopolitics” agenda by leaking information extraterrestrial life, we need to begin with events in the early 1990’s. As the Soviet Union collapsed in December 1991, and 15 independent states emerged, the Soviet KGB dissolved and in the process lost control over a vast collection of files. Many of these leaked KGB files concerned the formerly Soviet era taboo subjects of UFOs and extraterrestrial life. The motivation for many KGB officers in leaking these files was largely monetary. A number of western media outlets were willing to pay large sums for information from Soviet era archives concerning UFOs and extraterrestrial life. Several thousand dollars for leaked documents, photos or videos would mean former KGB agents could feed themselves and their families for a few months in the uncertain times ahead as the Russian Federation found its footing in a capitalist international system. Roger Moore, the former James Bond star, took a film crew to Russia, then led by Boris Yeltsin, and found some of these files.

Moore’s documentary, The Secret KGB UFO Files, was released in 1998 and revealed some of the best UFO footage ever captured on film. It showed a crashed UFO in a remote rural location being filmed and retrieved by Soviet army units led by KGB officers. One also saw video of an autopsy being conducted of a dead alien, and other evidence of Soviet knowledge about UFOs and extraterrestrial life.

Later documentaries would reveal even more formerly classified KGB information such as the US Navy battling UFOs in Antarctica during the Operation Highjump expedition in 1946/47, and even secret meetings between U.S. government authorities and extraterrestrial ambassadors.

In 1997, the famous Italian stigmatist and self-declared “contactee,” Giorgio Bongiovanni was given permission to interview high ranking military officials and former KGB agents about extraterrestrial life. He met with Russian officials at the Anti-Aircraft Academy of Defense in Tver, Russia and discussed evidence of UFOs and extraterrestrial life possessed by the Russian government. Photos and videos of alien life were shown to him revealing that both the Soviet Union and USA were aware of and covering up evidence of alien life. Permission was also given to film the interview and it was released with the title: “UFO Disclosure in Russia.”

Under President Boris Yeltsin, whether by historical accident or deliberate state policy, an exopolitics agenda was being quietly implemented. With permission by Russian authorities, Soviet era UFO files were being leaked to independent researchers and film crews revealing the truth about alien life visiting our world.

A little known KGB Colonel, Vladimir Putin, rose quickly in the Yeltsin administration. His first major appointment was on 26 March 1997 when he was appointed Deputy Chief of the Presidential Staff. Putin continued to be rapidly promoted and on 25 July, 1998 was appointed head of the FSB, one of the successor agencies to the KGB. He became Prime Minister on 9 August 1999 and Yeltsin announced his desire that Putin would succeed him. After Yeltsin’s abrupt resignation in December 1999, Putin became acting President, and was elected President on 26 March 2000.

Putin appears to have quietly continued Yeltsin’s exopolitics agenda of allowing alien related information to be leaked to the public. Senior officials in the Russian Federation have been allowed to come forward on national TV to offer their frank assessment on the subject of extraterrestrial life visiting Earth. One of these officials was Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, the sitting Governor of the Russian Republic of Kalmykia, the only Buddhist region in Europe.

In an extraordinary television interview conducted in May 2010, Ilyumzhinov claimed that in 1997 he was taken from his penthouse apartment on board an extraterrestrial vehicle. Ilyumzhinov claims that the extraterrestrials he met were humanoid and gave him a tour of their ship, and even took him to another world. According to Ilyumzhinov, his experience is backed by three witnesses who searched for him at his home after he had boarded the alien spaceship. Most revealing is that Ilyumzhinov appeared on Russia’s no.1 rated television station, Channel One, which is 51% controlled by the Russian government. The interviewer, Vladimir Pozner, began the segment with questions about Ilyumzhinov’s experience. This reveals that the host and producers knew in advance of what had happened, and wished to discuss it on air. Significantly, there was no censorship of Ilyumzhinov’s experience which was immediately made available on the Channel One website. At the very least, this signifies that the Russian government was open to public debate on extraterrestrial life sparked by its most prominent television station. More importantly, the airing of Ilyumzhinov’s experience signaled that Putin, who was Prime Minister at the time, and his successor President Dmitry Medvedev, were pursuing an exopolitics agenda to prepare Russian citizens for eventual public disclosure of extraterrestrial life.

In 2012, after Putin had been re-elected as President of the Russia Federation, his predecessor and now serving Prime Minister, Medvedev, startled a television hostess with his frank comments about UFOs and extraterrestrial life. After completing an on-air interview with five television reporters on December 7, 2012, Medvedev continued to respond to reporters and made some off-air comments without appearing to realize that the microphone was still on. He was then asked by one reporter if “the president is handed secret files on aliens when he receives the briefcase needed to activate Russia’s nuclear arsenal,” Medvedev responded:

Along with the briefcase with nuclear codes, the president of the country is given a special ‘top secret’ folder. This folder in its entirety contains information about aliens who visited our planet… Along with this, you are given a report of the absolutely secret special service that exercises control over aliens on the territory of our country… I will not tell you how many of them are among us because it may cause panic.

Just over a month after his startling on-camera admission, Medvedev opened the 2013 World Economic Forum held in Davos Switzerland, January 23-27. An 80-page analysis of 50 risks for the next 10 years had been distributed to attendees. The Global Risks 2013 report is lengthy list of prognostications of what world leaders need to plan for to avoid “systemic shocks and catastrophic events”. Among the list are five X factors that according to the report, “no country alone can prevent.” One of the X factors was the discovery of extraterrestrial life.

In understanding why the US and its Western allies are trying to encircle, pressure and intimidate the Russian Federation, we need to appreciate that this is the means by which Putin’s exopolitics agenda can be stopped. If Russia continues to allow senior officials to reveal the truth about extraterrestrial life and to leak Soviet era UFO files, this threatens a carefully developed and enforced policy of over seven decades of international secrecy.

While the international media depicts Western democracies led by the US as free and open societies, the reality is that when it comes to the issue of extraterrestrial life, the West is anything but free and open. In contrast, the Russian Federation is far more forthcoming when it comes to the issue of alien visitation to our planet. Unfortunately, the Ukraine is being used a pawn in an internationally orchestrated effort to weaken and intimidate the Russian Federation so it can be easily pressured to fall in line with the dictates of the international power elite on issues such as extraterrestrial secrecy. Putin understands this and that is why he proactively intervened in the Ukraine to defend Russian interests in this strategically vital nation. In allowing an exopolitics agenda implemented by his predecessor, Boris Yeltsin, to continue, President Vladimir Putin, and his chief ally Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, are doing humanity a great service.

ExoJournal-logoThe latest edition of the Exopolitics Journal has just been released, and focuses on what diplomatic relations with extraterrestrial life might look like. With a steady increase in the number of exoplanets that are being confirmed, scientists have concluded it is inevitable that extraterrestrial life will one day be discovered. In the not distant future, it can be predicted that “Galactic Diplomacy” will be as important to the quality of our lives, as is international diplomacy today.

Here is what Manuel Lamiroy, the Co-editor of this special edition of the Exopolitics Journal had to say in his introduction:

This second volume of the fourth edition of the Exopolitics Journal continues with the theme of “Extraterrestrial Contact.” This time, the focus is on “Galactic Diplomacy.” While “Official Contact” still is the subject of science fiction, Extraterrestrial Contact already is happening, has been happening for a long time, and is ongoing, on a large scale. Indeed, to date, thousands of individuals have had contact experiences, and the indications are that this phenomenon will increase. As such, there is a growing need for galactic diplomacy; not only for official – or “track I” – diplomacy, but also for “Track II” or “Citizen Diplomacy with Extraterrestrials.”

This special edition of the Exopolitics Journal contains seven articles along with an introduction. It is available online for free.

Syria-Hidden-HandThis week President Barack Obama personally leads an attempt to persuade the US Congress to authorize a US militarily attack against the Syrian regime in response to a chemical weapons attack on rebel held areas in Damascus on August 21. Casualties range from 355 to 1729 dead, with three times as many being injured in the attack. Obama lays responsibility squarely at the regime of Bashar al-Assad.

Obama claims intelligence sources confirm with ‘high confidence” that the attack was launched by the regime even if Assad did not give the order. This is reflected in a German Intelligence report that has just emerged that suggests that the attack was conducted by government forces without Assad’s approval.

For many military analysts and independent observers the timing of the attack raises many troubling questions for the scenario depicted by Obama. Why would the Assad regime resort to chemical weapons when it was winning the war using conventional forces? Also, why would the regime launch chemical weapons during a visit by United Nations chemical weapons inspectors? According to US Ambassador Samantha Powers, the attack was timed to show the contempt of the Assad regime to international norms, and its intent to increasingly use chemical weapons.

Not so according to the majority of alternative media sources. The consensus that has quickly emerged is that it was Syrian rebels themselves that launched a chemical weapons attack on rebel held suburbs in Damascus Syria in a false flag attack to provoke Western military intervention.  What both President Obama’s administration and the alternative media are not considering is a shadowy “Third Force” operating in Syria. There is evidence that a “Third Force” is operating in Syria that plans to decimate Damascus for an otherworldly “exopolitical” agenda.

Let me begin by describing this shadowy “Third Force” which can also be described as the “Hidden Hand” of both world politics and the relatively new field of exopolitics. The “Hidden Hand Dialogue” is a set of questions and answers given by a self-described Illuminati insider and members of the Above Top Secret Forum that was recorded in October 2008. The insider responds to questions in a sincere and consistent way, and reveals valuable information about the secret control mechanisms used by an elite group of insiders s/he calls “The Family”. S/he wrote:

I am a generational member of a Ruling Bloodline Family… Our Lineage can be traced back beyond antiquity. From the earliest times of your recorded “history”, and beyond, our Family has been ‘directing’ the ‘play’ from behind the scenes, in one way or another.

Among the many insights s/he gives is that the leadership of the family is very much aligned with a group of extraterrestrials that has been on Earth for millennia:

I want to be clear on this Bloodline issue. The ones you know, they are of earthly lineage. Yes, they have their place in the Family, but the Real Power lines, do not originate from this planet.

This echoes the apocryphal Book of Epoch where a band of 200 fallen angels/extraterrestrials arrived on Earth and mate with humanity to create a new bloodline of ruling elites – the Nephilim.

Preston James has just written an article on Veteran’s Today describing the Luciferian extraterrestrial aspects of this “Third Force:”

Some credible insiders have claimed that most top world leaders have had to enter into a contract with the Third Force which is really lucifer, the fallen one, the great deceiver of mankind, who has presented himself as the Annunaki Master Controller Chief Alien ET which is claimed to be an an inter-generational, inter-dimensional entity that is manipulating the world according to his alien ET agenda.

The Hidden Hand gave detailed answers to questions, and made some predictions. Among these was the following: “Damascus, will be uninhabitable by the end of 2010, possibly even sooner…”

Significantly, Benjamin Fulford, a former Asia Pacific Bureau chief for Forbes Magazine, claims that someone with connections to what he describes as a “criminal cabal” made a threat in September 2011 that “Damascus would be made ‘uninhabitable.’”  There’s no evidence that Fulford was aware of what the Hidden Hand had predicted back in 2008, so it’s a curious coincidence that the same language was used for claiming that Damascus would become uninhabitable at some point by a mysterious group of individuals with great power behind the scenes.

In 2008, such a prediction appeared very fanciful, and indeed did not occur by the predicted date. Fulford’s similar prediction did not have a timeline but clearly suggested that the coming devastation was to be contrived by the Third Force/criminal cabal. Now, however, we are witnessing the Syrian capital of Damascus being slowly destroyed in an expanding civil war where indiscriminate aerial bombing and artillery force was initially used by the government as reported by independent organizations such as Amnesty International.

As the Assad regime continued its use of indiscriminate force to cow its opponents into submission and punish civilians supporting the opposition, it’s not unrealistic to assume that Assad would eventually resort to chemical weapons as he lost control of densely populated urban areas. In retaliation, rebel units could themselves use chemical weapons they have gained access to against regime forces and areas, as Assad’s regime is now claiming. If chemical weapons were used in a large scale in Syria’s capital by opposing forces, then Damascus could indeed become uninhabitable in the not too distant future.

The tide of the war, however, changed dramatically for the Assad regime with an influx of Hezbollah fighters from Lebanon and Quds Force volunteers from Iran. Cities and territory that had been held by rebel forces for months began to fall starting with the border town of Qusayr in April 2013.  So why would Assad resort now to the use of chemical weapons in Syria’s capital city?

He most likely didn’t as some press reports are now claiming. Nor is it feasible that the rebels themselves would target a rebel held area thereby dealing themselves a significant tactical military setback. The most likely culprit is therefore a shadowy Third Force calling itself “The Family” that desires to escalate the conflict in Syria and fulfill its own prophesy that Damascus would become uninhabitable.

The ultimate fate of Damascus will be a sign that the revelations of the Hidden Hand and Benjamin Fulford were accurate – the Earth has been controlled by a “Family” or “Criminal Cabal” of ruling bloodlines with enormous power behind the scenes that manipulates both sides in international conflicts. A book by William Bramley, the Gods of Eden, traces how the Third Force – he calls them “the custodians” – has historically manipulated both sides of conflicts to achieve its long term goals.

Numerous witness reports suggest that most visiting extraterrestrials, however, are not part of the Third Force, and in fact are in conflict with them. According to multiple contactees and the Book of Enoch, the Third Force was a criminal band of extraterrestrials banished to Earth millennia ago.

President Obama’s attempt to persuade the US Congress to authorize military force against Assad’s regime is facing heavy resistance and may fail. More people than ever have become educated by the alternative news media about false flag events, and strongly suspect that the chemical weapons attack in Ghouta, Damascus was indeed a false flag operation. It was not however an attack launched by the Assad regime or by the rebels who both had no clear interest in authorizing such an attack.

Instead, ultimate responsibility lies with the Third Force which explicitly mentioned years ago that Damascus would in future suffer from calamitous events that would make it uninhabitable. We are very likely witnessing the beginning of a chain of events that may fulfill this dire prophesy. However, the power of the alternative media to educate the general public about false flag events and a historic extraterrestrial presence (exopolitics) is a positive development. It may culminate in the planned chain of destructive events in Damascus involving chemical weapons and U.S. intervention not occurring. There is good reason to believe that the power of the Third Force to manipulate humanity’s fate is being increasingly exposed, and will eventually come to an end.

exopolitics 10 YearsToday marks the 10th anniversary of exopolitics.org which was created on January 20, 2003 on Martin Luther King Day. The date was chosen to celebrate the life and mission of Martin Luther King who was a personal inspiration to me, and whose work had similarities with the new research and life venture that I was embarking on with the creation of Exopolitics.org. Dr King strived for the removal of racial inequality and a restoration of the Constitutional values upon which the United States was created: Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The main challenge he confronted was the inbred biases of many in the public who were brought up to believe that racial inequalities were a natural part of life. Dr King’s immediate struggle was against institutional policies that upheld racial segregation in the American South. The harder and long term struggle was against the inbred biases that made American citizens resistant to accepting any changes to the racial inequalities that were believed to be an inevitable part of life.

In first being exposed to the reality of extraterrestrial life, and a massive cover up of supporting evidence I saw a similar struggle ahead to what had confronted Dr King in the civil rights arena. After a 20 month period of researching the issues raised from my watching of Dr Stephen Greer’s Disclosure Project Press Conference in May 2001, I decided to change my conventional research interests at American University where I had worked since 1996. In writing my first exopolitics paper, "The Need for Exopolitics: Implications of the Extraterrestrial Conspiracy Theories for Policy Makers and Global Peace", I naively thought it would be welcomed by my superiors at American University. How wrong I was. I was told not to associate the University with exopolitics in any way, and so could not publish my article on my Amerian University webpage. This directly led to the creation of Exopolitics.org . Continued opposition led to my eventual dismissal from American University in 2004 which created significant personal and professional problems in my life.

Ten years after the creation of the Exopolics.org website, I am greatly encouraged by the number of individuals that have become interested in exopolitics, and created exopolitical websites and organizations around the world. Nevertheless, the struggle is still massive and much work needs to be done to expose the extent of the cover-up of evidence of extraterrestrial life. The institutional policies that hide this truth from the American and world publics need to be exposed. More importantly, and more challenging, is the quest to address to inbred public biases that individuals discussing UFOs and extraterrestrial life are somehow on the fringe of society and need to be shunned.

In reality, all studying UFOs and extraterrestrial life are courageous individuals who have dedicated much of their time, and lives in many cases, to finding out the truth despite public dismissal and ridicule. While there will always be differences of opinion and methods among researchers, I admire all who have dedicated their time to UFO and exopolitical issues given the public biases against such interests. I especially appreciate those individuals that have supported my work in many ways, and given me the courage to continue on despite the determined opposition of public institutions and the mass media.

Exopolitics continues to personally inspire me and my research interests. Those visiting exopolitics.org can view online for free the full scope of my 10 years of research – approximately five books worth of material or half a million words. I look forward to what the next 10 years will bring to the field of exopolitics and to my own life. I sincerly thank all that have had the courage to write, speak or commit themselves to investigating and informing others about evidence of visitors from other worlds coming to our small planet. You continue to inspire me and give me cause for optimism over  the tremendous opportunities that lie ahead for us individually and as a species as we boldly step forward to embrace the truth about our cosmic visitors.

2012 was a watershed year in the expanding public awareness of the possibility of extraterrestrial life, and its political and social implications for earth. NASA landed another rover on Mars with the scientific means to determine if Mars once hosted life. NASA sponsored scientific projects continued to find more exoplanets, some of which reside in the habitable regions of their suns. More than anything else, exoplanet discoveries continue to excite scientists with the possibility that extraterrestrial life exists elsewhere in the universe, and the possibility of contact. Scientists though are divided on whether this would be a good or bad thing since they don’t agree on how extraterrestrials would respond in contact with a resource rich planet such as earth. Then we have news stories based on whistleblowers and even a former Russian President revealing what may be really happening behind the scenes when it comes to government policy on extraterrestrial life. Important news developments in 2012 make it inevitable that the study of extraterrestrial life and its political implications – generally known as exopolitics – will receive even more attention in 2013 and beyond. Here is my list of the top 10 extraterrestrial life stories for 2012 – in descending order to the Top Extraterrestrial Life Story of the Year.

#10.  On August 25, Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon died from heart failure. According to NASA insiders and an alleged ham radio transmission intercept, what Armstrong witnessed during his 1969 moon walk changed his life, and led to the eventual abandonment of the manned lunar missions. According to alleged leaked documents, two huge extraterrestrial spacecraft watched the Apollo 11 landing, and observed the Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin moon walks. Did Armstrong carry his moon secrets to the grave? Further reading: First man on moon dies along with secrets of what he saw

#9 On May 25, the movie Men In Black (MIB) III was released. In it, an idea is presented in an outrageously comedic way. Extraterrestrial visitors live on our world and are monitored by a secretive governmental agency that hides the truth from the American public. The movie is based on stories circulating since the early 1950’s of mysterious MIB traveling around in dark suits in vintage cars, persuading people to be silent about their experiences concerning UFOs and alien life. Does MIB III use comedy to hide the truth in plain sight? Further Reading: Men in Black III – Hiding the Truth in Plain Sight

#8 November 28. CNN aired a story that according to a declassified report, the Air Force plan involved sending a nuclear missile that would detonate on impact with the lunar surface. The project was titled “A Study of Lunar Research Flights” (aka “Project A-119”) and was planned in 1958. According to the declassified report, the plan was never implemented. According to one senior US Air Force officer, however, not only was an attempt made to detonate a nuclear bomb on the moon decades later, but there was an external intervention to destroy the missile. Further reading: Did the US Air Force attempt to nuke the moon?

#7 In April, Professor Paul Springer from the U.S. Air Command and Staff College was authorized by his employers to discuss military plans to respond to an alien invasion. Springer responded to questions by an Australian Television program exploring possible responses to an alien invasion that aired on Easter Sunday. In the segment titled ““U.S. military making plans for an alien invasion,” he discussed the implications of humanity being confronted by an extraterrestrial threat. Springer’s comments confirm for the first time that the Pentagon has drawn up contingency plans for an extraterrestrial invasion. Further Reading: Pentagon plans for Alien invasion exist according to military professor

#6 In April, a team of scientists analyzing data from the 1976 Viking Mission concluded that life on Mars was detected in one of the four experiments conducted by the two robotic landers. Their report, “Complexity Analysis of the Viking Labeled Release Experiments,” released in the International Journal of Aeronautical and Space Sciences resurrected a controversy over the results of the Viking Mission’s “Labeled Released experiment” designed by Dr Gilbert Levin. The Viking mission was the only Mars mission so far that was designed by NASA to detect life. Dr Levin was confident that the experiment had detected microbial life on Mars, but his NASA colleagues disagreed and his startling finding was forgotten in the Martian sands of time. This new scientific investigation concluded that Levin was right all along. Further Reading – 1976 life on Mars controversy resurrected in new scientific report.

#5 On October 20, Gordon Duff, the senior editor of the popular Veterans Today website, released a blog featuring an interview recorded on Coast to Coast Radio four days earlier, Duff provided details of a briefing document he personally witnessed in 1982 while working for an unnamed government agency. Duff claims that the document contained references to two treaties with extraterrestrial civilizations. The treaties, according to Duff, were coerced upon the USA and other countries by a hostile extraterrestrial race.

#4 In September, according to Gordon Duff, senior editor of Veterans Today, intelligence sources were revealing that hostile extraterrestrials are militarily engaging with world naval forces. In an article, provocatively titled, “UFO War: Chinese and US Navy off San Francisco,” Duff claims that the Chinese navy is lending assistance to the US in battling these hostile forces in what looks like a real life version of the recent movie Battleship. Duff claims that his intelligence sources are Asian, and that US naval forces are stretched thin in the Pacific due to a beefed up naval presence in the Persian Gulf. Duff admits that the story stretches credibility but that his source is usually reliable, thereby raising the possibility that either the story is largely accurate and/or officially sanctioned disinformation. Are we being prepared for an alien false flag invasion? Further Reading:  Is Alien UFO false flag event on the way?

# 3 Back in May, NASA accounted that for the first time, it was able to detect infrared light from a rocky “super-earth” variety of exoplanet. The Spitzer Space Telescope detected infrared light from the exoplanet “55 Cancri e” which has a rocky core and is nearly twice the Earth’s diameter, and eight times its mass. While 55 Cancri e is much too close to its sun – 55 Cancri A – to sustain life as we know it, the detection is a historic first for NASA. The detection of infrared light on the super-earth category of exoplanets, prime candidates for finding extraterrestrial life, makes possible the discovery of alien cities in distant solar systems.

#2 On December 14, Britain’s Director of Public Prosecutation (DPP) announced that Gary McKinnon will not face prosecution in the United Kingdom for hacking into the computer systems of NASA, the Pentagon and other government agencies in search of information on UFOs. McKinnon claimed to have found photographs, film, and other evidence of alien spacecraft secretly held by various U.S. government agencies. While the US extradition order is still valid and could be activated in other countries if McKinnnon travelled abroad, the DPP decision ends McKinnon’s decade long legal nightmare in Britain. McKinnon can now safely reveal anything further that he learned of secret US government knowledge of UFOs and extraterrestrial life. Further Reading: UFO hacker will not face UK prosecution

#1 Top Extraterrestrial Life Story of the Year. On December 7, the current Russian Prime Minister and former President, Dmitry Medvedev, made some startling off-air comments to reporters while his microphone was still switched on. He was asked whether the President is given any secret files on extraterrestrials while in office.
