What You Should Know About PRISM and the NSA Technology

There's a lot of uncertainty around the NSA's data collection program PRISM. Here's what we know.
You've probably heard by now: the NSA is listening to you. Or watching you. Or reading your Twitter feed. The news broke on Thursday that PRISM, a program run by the United States National Security Agency, was established post-9/11 to analyze the vast amounts of information flowing across cell phone networks and the Internet. Here's what The Washington Post wrote to introduce this story on Thursday:
"The National Security Agency and the FBI are tapping directly into the central servers of nine leading U.S. Internet companies, extracting audio and video chats, photographs, e-mails, documents, and connection logs that enable analysts to track foreign targets, according to a top-secret document obtained by The Washington Post."
Many, many people are upset about this news, and understandably so. But it's also confusing. Is this an illegal invasion of privacy? Are those Internet companies playing along? Let's take on the most important elements of the PRISM story one by one.
First up: PRISM is possible because Congress passed the Protect America Act in 2007 and the FISA Amendments Act in 2008, which "immunized private companies that cooperated voluntarily with U.S. intelligence collection," writes the Washington Post.
Here's the gist of what the Protect America Act Added, via Wikipedia:
  • The bill allowed the monitoring of all electronic communications of "Americans communicating with foreigners who are the targets of a U.S. terrorism investigation" without a court's order or oversight, so long as it is not targeted at one particular person "reasonably believed to be" inside the country.
  • The Act removed the requirement for a FISA warrant for any communication which was foreign-related, even if the communication involved a U.S. location on the receiving or sending end of communication; all foreign-foreign communications were removed from warrant requirements, as well.[10]
  • Experts claimed that this deceptively opened the door to domestic spying, given that many domestic U.S. communications passed via non-US locations, by virtue of old telephony network configurations.
And the FISA Amendments Act:
  • Protects telecommunications companies from lawsuits for "'past or future cooperation' with federal law enforcement authorities and will assist the intelligence community in determining the plans of terrorists". Immunity is given by a certification process, which can be overturned by a court on specific grounds.
  • Removes requirements for detailed descriptions of the nature of information or property targeted by the surveillance if the target is reasonably believed to be outside the country.
  • Allows eavesdropping in emergencies without court approval, provided the government files required papers within a week.
While these acts were clearly aimed at foreign threats, they allowed for the monitoring of communications in the United States. Was that a necessary step, given how much information flows through the US Internet infrastructure, and the possibility of terrorists hiding sindie the country? Quite probably. Director of Natioanl Intelligence James R. Clapper stated on Thursday:
“Information collected under this program is among the most important and valuable foreign intelligence information we collect, and is used to protect our nation from a wide variety of threats. The unauthorized disclosure of information about this important and entirely legal program is reprehensible and risks important protections for the security of Americans.”
The Post further detailed that as many as 1 in 7 intelligence reports come from PRISM data, and that it's the most important contributor to the President's Daily Brief. The information it collects is, most definitely, valuable.
So, the next question: What information is PRISM collecting, exactly? And from which companies? The Washington Post wrote on Thursday that Microsoft was the first company the NSA recruited to collect information under the new policy. Microsoft and other private corporations can voluntarily give up private information under the 2008 FISA Amendment without liability. Facebook and Apple both stated to the Post that they do not provide any government agency direct access to their servers.
The Post also quoted the secret document it had obtained, writing: "the document itself made clear that the NSA regarded the identities of its private partners as PRISM’s most sensitive secret, fearing that the companies would withdraw from the program if exposed. '98 percent of PRISM production is based on Yahoo, Google and Microsoft; we need to make sure we don’t harm these sources,' the briefing’s author wrote in his speaker’s notes."
Those sources are, according to the document, Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, PalTalk, AOL, Skype, YouTube, Apple.
Denials from Apple, Google and Facebook have left some theorizing that the Washington Post and the Guardian, which also wrote about PRISM, had been duped, but NBC has also confirmed the program's existence.
Yahoo! and Microsoft have also denied being involved in PRISM. What's unclear, currently, is how the information is being gathered. There is some wiggle room in many of the corporate statements, which use language like "We provide customer data only when we receive a legally binding order or subpoena to do so," but there's no wiggle room in Apple's flat-out statement "We've never heard of PRISM." It seems possible or likely, at this point, that some information is being collected without those companies' participation.
Figuring out exactly what information is being collected is tricky. The short answer: A lot of it. The long answer:
"According to a separate 'User’s Guide for PRISM Skype Collection,' that service can be monitored for audio when one end of the call is a conventional telephone and for any combination of 'audio, video, chat, and file transfers' when Skype users connect by computer alone," writes The Washington Post. "Google’s offerings include Gmail, voice and video chat, Google Drive files, photo libraries, and live surveillance of search terms."
Before the PRISM story broke, The Washington Post wrote another story detailing the NSA's collection of Verizon call records under court order: "The order appears to require a Verizon subsidiary to provide the NSA with daily information on all telephone calls by its customers within the United States and from foreign locations into the United States." That order reportedly only allows for collection of call metadata, such as the length of a call, not the actual audio. Either way, the information being collected is legal under the Patriot Act.
President Obama criticized the leaks, stating "In the abstract, you can complain about ‘big brother’ and how this is a potential program wrong amok. But when you actually look at the details, I think we’ve struck the right balance." He also stressed that no one is listening in on phone calls.
This is just the beginning of the story--no doubt more information on what PRISM collects and which companies provide that information will continue to be released. For a look back on how and why PRISM came to be, read The Atlantic's "Birth of the Surveillance State," published this morning. It explains the drastic steps taken by the NSA in the 2000s to catch up to the massive explosion in cellular and Internet data traffic across the world.
David Simon, journalist and writer of The Wire, has his own take on the situation. He criticizes the media for overreacting to what is an unsurprising, legal, and even necessary data monitoring program.

Did An Extraterrestrial Speak To Us? 

Yes .... NSA has the recording! 

Three years ago (6/2010) the following narrative was posted at the MUFON Case Management System page...the submitter was from Mississippi. On the same day I received a email from a man in Mississippi that contained the same text. After I contacted this person, he denied that he ever sent it. I later found out that several other investigators and researchers received the same email...between 2008 through 2010. No one has been able to find the original author. Did an extraterrestrial actually attempt contact? It's just one of those strange mysteries that may never be answered. I decided to post it for new perspectives. Is there a secret agenda? Was this warning too late? What do you think may eventually happen? If you've read it before...maybe you should read it again:

This is a letter from ET to Earth: Do You Wish That We Show UP?

Translated to English:

This long letter to humanity appeared with no apparent return address. It is being posted here and there. This is another Internet piece for which I cannot assess the validity. All I CAN say is that it sounds like a good idea, is coherent, and is written skillfully at a level of intelligence and maturity with I would associate with a serious, non-technical, matter-of-fact level of discourse. It is not ethnically loaded and the writer has a very good understanding of language and human psychology, though there are a few moments where the grammar is different than we are accustomed to and there are a couple of language errors.

Most importantly, it makes no reference to impossible constructs, faux-tech, nor any type of religious or New Age buzzwords. I am also sending it to you because it might be real.

The main assertion in the letter is that human civilization is now in an uncontrollable free-fall implosion which cannot be “fixed” from within existing social systems. The implosion is causing, will cause a major rupture in all human orders. There is a dark road down toward the use of technology to rapidly enslave human populations in a badly degraded and unhealthy environment. Those who are defining this path, many of them unintentionally, have the greater advantage of power over resources and may gain the upper hand during the coming rupture. There are many who would take a liberating path, they could gain the upper hand if they UNDERSTAND THE CHOICE and can lose their fear, sense of isolation, and ignorance about the true state of affairs.

The main proposition in the letter is that the mass appearance of ET in the skies now could help humanity clear away the veils of illusion and deceits, help settle many existential issues and dilemmas, and provide an “attractor” to help pull positive mentalities out of the social death-vortex and enable them to refocus the next stage in evolution.

The main question in the letter is whether you want ET to thus show UP. ET suggests that direct contact and some cultural assistance would provide the means to overcome the major blocks in human social and cultural evolution. ET argues that the mental/emotional ground needs to be prepared for such contact. Consent and expectation for such contact needs to be created around the world, less humans react in mass with fear and become manipulated by reactive power elites. ET suggests that a focused telepathic answer from each reader will be sufficient to assist ET is reaching a conclusion about what it should or should not do. Even as the internet is achieving universal penetration during this time, ET requests that this letter, its first mass communication, be universally translated and transmitted throughout the world. ET also suggests that this should be done by people to people, forget the mass media.

Here is the letter. Here it is unaltered by me. Decide for yourself.


Whoever transmitted this translated message to you is irrelevant, and should remain anonymous in your mind. It is what you will do with this message which matters ! > Each one of you wishes to exercise her/his free will and experience happiness. These are attributes that were shown to us and to which we now have access. Your free will depends upon the knowledge you have of your own power. Your happiness depends upon the love that you give and receive. Like all conscious races at this stage of progress, you may feel isolated on your planet. This impression makes you sure of your destiny. Yet, you are at the brink of big upheavals that only a minority is aware of. It is not our responsibility to modify your future without you choosing it. Consider this message as a worldwide referendum! And your answer as a ballot! Who are we?

Neither your scientists nor your religious representatives speak unanimously about the unexplained celestial events that mankind has witnessed for thousands of years. To know the truth, one must face it without the filter of one´s beliefs, however respectable they may be.

A growing number of anonymous researchers of yours are exploring new knowledge paths and are getting very close to reality. Today, your civilization is flooded with an ocean of information of which only a tiny part, the less upsetting one, is notably diffused. What in your history seemed ridiculous or improbable has often become possible, then realized, in particular in the last fifty years. Be aware that the future will be even more surprising. You will discover the worst as well as the best.

Like billions others in this galaxy, we are conscious creatures that some name “extra-terrestrials”, even though reality is subtler. There is no fundamental difference between you and us, save for the experience of certain stages of evolution. Like in any other organized structure, hierarchy exists in our internal relationships. Ours is based upon the wisdom of several races. It is with the approval of this hierarchy that we turn to you. Like most of you, we are in the quest of the Supreme Being. Therefore we are not gods or lesser gods but virtually your equals in the Cosmic Brotherhood. Physically, we are somewhat different from you but for most of us humanoid-shaped.

Our existence is a reality but the majority of you does not perceive it yet. We are not mere observations, we are consciences just like you. You fail to apprehend us because we remain invisible to your senses and measure instruments most of the time. We wish to fill this void at this moment in your history. We made this collective decision but this is not enough. We need yours. Through this message, you become the decision-makers ! You personally. We have no human representative on Earth who could guide your decision. Why aren’t we visible?

At certain stages of evolution, cosmic “humanities” discover new forms of science beyond the apparent control of matter. Structured dematerialization and materialization are part of them. This is what your humanity has reached in a few laboratories, in close collaboration with other extra-terrestrial creatures at the cost of hazardous compromises that remain purposely hidden from you by some of your representatives.

Apart from the aerial or spatial objects or phenomena known about by your scientific community, that you call ´UFOs, there are essentially multidimensional manufactured spaceships that apply these capacities. Many human beings have been in visual, auditory, tactile or psychic contact with such ships, some of which are under occult powers that govern you. The scarcity of your observations is due to the outstanding advantages provided by the dematerialized state of these ships. By not witnessing them by yourself, you cannot believe in their existence. We fully understand this.

The majority of these observations are made on an individual basis so as to touch the soul and not to modify any organized system. This is deliberate from the races that surround you but for very different reasons and results. For negative multidimensional beings that play a part in the exercise of power in the shadow of human oligarchy, discretion is motivated by their will to keep their existence and seizure unknown. For us, discretion is motivated by the respect of the human free will that people can exercise to manage their own affairs so that they can reach technical and spiritual maturity on their own.

Humankind’s entrance into the family of galactic civilizations is greatly expected. We can appear in broad daylight and help you attain this union. We haven’t done it so far, as too few of you have genuinely desired it, because of ignorance, indifference or fear, and because the emergency of the situation did not justify it. Many of those who study our appearances count the lights in the night without lighting the way. Often they think in terms of objects when it is all about conscious beings. Who are you?

You are the offspring of many traditions that throughout time have been mutually enriched by each others´ contributions. The same applies to the races at the surface of the Earth. Your goal is to unite in the respect of these roots to accomplish a common project. The appearance of your cultures seems to keep you separated because you substitute it to your deeper being. Shape is now more important than the essence of your subtle nature. For the powers in place, this prevalence of the shape constitutes the ramparts against any form of jeopardy.

You are being called on to overcome shape while still respecting it for its richness and beauty. Understanding the conscience of shape makes us love men in their diversity. Peace does not mean not making war, it consists in becoming what you are in reality: a same Fraternity. To understand this, the number of solutions within your reach are decreasing. One of them consists in contact with another race that would reflect the image of what you are in reality.

What is your situation? Except for rare occasions, our interventions always had very little incidence on your capacity to make collective and individual decisions about your own future. This is motivated by our knowledge of your deep psychological mechanisms. We reached the conclusion that freedom is built every day as a being becomes aware of himself and of his environment, getting progressively rid of constraints and inertias, whatever they may be. Despite the numerous, brave and willing human consciences, those inertias are artificially maintained for the profit of a growing centralizing power.

Until recently, mankind lived a satisfying control of its decisions. But it is losing more and more the control of its own fate because of the growing use of advanced technologies, which lethal consequences on the earthly and human ecosystems become irreversible. You are slowly but surely losing your extraordinary capacity to make life desirable. Your resilience will artificially decrease, independently of your own will. Such technologies exist that affect your body as well as your mind. Such plans are on their way. This can change as long as you keep this creative power in you, even if it cohabits with the dark intentions of your potential lords. This is the reason why we remain invisible. This individual power is doomed to vanish should a collective reaction of great magnitude not happen. The period to come is that of rupture, whichever it may be.

But should you wait for the last moment to find solutions? Should you anticipate or undergo pain? Your history has never ceased to be marked by encounters between peoples who had to discover one another in conditions that were often conflictual. Conquests almost always happened to the detriment of others. Earth has now become a village where everyone knows everyone else but still conflicts persist and threats of all kinds get worse in duration and intensity. Although a Human being as an individual, yet having many potential capacities, cannot exercise them with dignity. This is the case for the biggest majority of you for reasons that are essentially geopolitical. There are several billion of you. The education of your children and your living conditions, as well as the conditions of numerous animals and much plant life are nevertheless under the thumb of a small number of your political, financial, military and religious representatives.

Your thoughts and beliefs are modeled after partisan interests to turn you into slaves while at the same time giving you the feeling that you are in total control of your destiny, which in essence is the reality. But there is a long way between a wish and a fact when the true rules of the game at hand are unknown. This time, you are not the conqueror. Biasing information is a millenary strategy for human beings. Inducting thoughts, emotions or organisms that do not belong to you via ad hoc technologies is an even older a strategy. Wonderful opportunities of progress stand close to big subdual and destruction threats. These dangers and opportunities exist now. However, you can only perceive what is being shown to you. The end of natural resources is programmed whereas no long-term collective project has been launched. Ecosystem exhaustion mechanisms have exceeded irreversible limits. The scarcity of resources and their unfair distribution - resources which entry price will rise day after day - will bring about fratricide fights at a large scale, but also at the very heart of your cities and countrysides.

Hatred grows bigger but so does love. That is what keeps you confident in your ability to find solutions. But the critical mass is insufficient and a sabotage work is cleverly being carried out. Human behaviors, formed from past habits and trainings, have such an inertia that this perspective leads you to a dead end. You entrust these problems to representatives, whose conscience of common well being slowly fades away in front of corporatist interests, with those difficulties. They are always debating on the form but rarely on the content. Just at the moment of action, delays will accumulate to the point when you have to submit rather than choose.

This is the reason why, more than ever in your history, your decisions of today will directly and significantly impact your survival of tomorrow. What event could radically modify this inertia that is typical of any civilization? Where will a collective and unifying awareness come from, that will stop this blind rushing ahead? Tribes, populations and human nations have always encountered and interacted with one another. Faced with the threats weighing upon the human family, it is perhaps time that a greater interaction occurred. A great roller wave is on the verge of emerging. It mixes very positive but also very negative aspects.

Who are the “third party”? There are two ways to establish a cosmic contact with another civilization: via its standing representatives or directly with individuals without distinction. The first way entails fights of interests, the second way brings awareness. The first way was chosen by a group of races motivated by keeping mankind in slavery, thereby controlling Earth resources, the gene pool and human emotional energy. The second way was chosen by a group of races allied with the cause of the Spirit of service. We have, at our end, subscribed to this disinterested cause and introduced ourselves a few years ago to representatives of the human power who refused our outstretched hand on the pretext of incompatible interests with their strategic vision. That is why today individuals are to make this choice by themselves without any representative interfering. What we proposed in the past to those whom we believed were in a capacity to contribute to your happiness, we propose it now!

Most of you ignore that non-human creatures took part in the exercise of those centralizing powers without them being neither suspected nor accessible to your senses. This is so true that they have almost very subtly taken control. They do not necessarily stand on your material plan, and that is precisely what could make them extremely efficient and frightening in the near future. However, be aware that a large number of your representatives are fighting this danger! Be aware that not all abductions are made against you. It is difficult to recognize the truth! How could you under such conditions exercise your free will when it is so much manipulated? What are you really free of?

Peace and reunification of your peoples would be a first step toward the harmony with civilizations other than yours. That is precisely what those who manipulate you behind the scenes want to avoid at all cost because, by dividing, they reign! They also reign over those who govern you. Their strength comes from their capacity to distillate mistrust and fear into you. This considerably harms your very cosmic nature. This message would be of no interest if these manipulators´ tutorate did not reach its peak and if their misleading and murderous plans did not materialize in a few years from now. Their deadlines are close and mankind will undergo unprecedented torments for the next ten cycles. To defend yourselves against this aggression that bears no face, you need at least to have enough information that leads to the solution. As is also the case with humans, resistance exists amongst those dominant races. Here again, appearance will not be enough to tell the dominator from the ally. At your current state of psychism, it is extremely difficult for you to distinguish between them. In addition to your intuition, training will be necessary when the time has come. Being aware of the priceless value of free will, we are inviting you to an alternative. What can we offer?

We can offer you a more holistic vision of the universe and of life, constructive interactions, the experience of fair and fraternal relationships, liberating technical knowledge, eradication of suffering, controlled exercise of individual powers, the access to new forms of energy and, finally, a better comprehension of consciousness.

We cannot help you overcome your individual and collective fears, or bring you laws that you would not have chosen, work on your own selves, individual and collective effort to build the world you desire, the spirit of quest to new skies. What would we receive? Should you decide that such a contact takes place, we would rejoice over the safeguarding of fraternal equilibrium in this region of the universe, fruitful diplomatic exchanges, and the intense Joy of knowing that you are united to accomplish what you are capable of. The feeling of Joy is strongly sought in the universe for its energy is divine. What is the question we ask you...“DO YOU WISH THAT WE SHOW UP?”

How to can you answer this question? The truth of soul can be read by telepathy. You only need to clearly ask yourself this question and give your answer as clearly, on your own or in a group, as you wish. Being in the heart of a city or in the middle of a desert does not impact the efficiency of your answer, YES or NO, IMMEDIATELY AFTER ASKING THE QUESTION! Just do it as if you were speaking to yourself but thinking about the message. This is a universal question and these mere few words, put in their context, have a powerful meaning. You should not let hesitation in the way. This is why you should calmly think about it, in all conscience. In order to perfectly associate your answer with the question, it is recommended that you answer right after another reading of this message. Do not rush to answer. Breathe and let all the power of your own free will penetrate you. Be proud of what you are! The problems that you may have weaken you. Forget about them for a few minutes to be yourselves. Feel the force that springs up in you. You are in control of yourselves!

A single thought, a single answer can drastically change your near future, in one way as in another. Your individual decision of asking in your inner self that we show up on your material plan and in broad daylight is precious and essential to us. Even though you can choose the way that best suits you, rituals are essentially useless. A sincere request made with your heart and your own will will always be perceived by those of us whom it is sent to. In your own private polling booth of your secret will, you will determine the future. What is the lever effect?

This decision should be made by the greatest number among you, even though it might seem like a minority. It is recommended to spread this message, in all envisageable fashions, in as many languages as possible, to those around you, whether or not they seem receptive to this new vision of the future. Do it using in a humorous tone or derision if that can help you. You can even openly and publicly make fun of it if it makes you feel more comfortable but do not be indifferent for at least you will have exercised your free will. Forget about the false prophets and the beliefs that have been transmitted to you about us. This request is one of the most intimate that can be asked to you. Making a decision by yourself, as an individual, is your right as well as your responsibility! Passivity only leads to the absence of freedom.

Similarly, indecision is never efficient. If you really want to cling to your beliefs, which is something that we understand, then say NO. If you do not know what to choose, do not say YES because of mere curiosity. This is not a show, this is real daily life, WE ARE ALIVE! And living!

Your history has plenty of episodes when determined men and women were able to influence the thread of events in spite of their small number. Just like a small number is enough to take temporal power on Earth and influence the future of the majority, a small number of you can radically change your fate as an answer to the impotence in face of so much inertia and hurdles! You can ease the mankind’s birth to Brotherhood. One of your thinkers once said: “Give me a hand-hold and I’ll raise the Earth”. Spreading this message will then be the hand-hold to strengthen, we will be the light-years long lever, you will be the craftsmen to … raise the Earth as a consequence of our appearance. What would be the consequences of a positive decision?

For us, the immediate consequence of a collective favorable decision would be the materialization of many ships, in your sky and on Earth.

For you, the direct effect would be the rapid abandoning of many certitudes and beliefs. A simple conclusive visual contact would have huge repercussions on your future. Much knowledge would be modified forever. The organization of your societies would be deeply upheaved for ever, in all fields of activity. Power would become individual because you would see for yourself that we are living. Concretely, you would change the scale of your values! The most important thing for us is that humankind would form a single family in front of this “unknown” we would represent! Danger would slowly melt away from your homes because you would indirectly force the undesirable ones, those we name the “third party”, to show up and vanish. You would all bear the same name and share the same roots: Mankind!

Later on, peaceful and respectful exchanges would be thus possible if such is your wish. For now, he who is hungry cannot smile, he who is fearful cannot welcome us. We are sad to see men, women and children suffering to such a degree in their flesh and in their hearts when they bear such an inner light. This light can be your future. Our relationships could be progressive. Several stages of several years or decades would occur: demonstrative appearance of our ships, physical appearance beside human beings, collaboration in your technical and spiritual evolution, discovery of parts of the galaxy.

Every time, new choices would be offered to you. You would then decide by yourself to cross new stages if you think it necessary to your external and inner well-being. No interference would be decided upon unilaterally. We would leave as soon as you would collectively wish that we do. Depending upon the speed to spread the message across the world, several weeks, or even several months will be necessary before our “great appearance”, if such is the decision made by the majority of those who will have used their capacity to choose, and if this message receives the necessary support. The main difference between your daily prayers to entities of a strictly spiritual nature and your current decision is extremely simple: we are technically equipped to materialize! Why such a historical dilemma?

We know that “foreigners” are considered as enemies as long as they embody the “unknown”. In a first stage, the emotion that our appearance will generate will strengthen your relationships on a worldwide scale. How could you know whether our arrival is the consequence of your collective choice? For the simple reason that we would have otherwise been already there for a long time at your level of existence! If we are not there yet, it is because you have not made such a decision explicitly. Some among you might think that we would make you believe in a deliberate choice of yours so as to legitimate our arrival, though this would not be true. What interest would we have to openly offer you what you haven’t got any access to yet, for the benefit of the greatest number of you?

How could you be certain that this is not yet another subtle manoeuvre of the “third party” to better enslave you ? Because one always more efficiently fights something that is identified than the contrary. Isn’t the terrorism that corrodes you a blatant example? Whatever, you are the sole judge in your own heart and soul! Whatever your choice, it would be respectable and respected! In the absence of human representatives who could potentially seduce into error you ignore everything about us as well as from about those who manipulate you without your consent. In your situation, the precautionary principle that consists in not trying to discover us does no longer prevail. You are already in the Pandora´s box that the “third party” has created around you. Whatever your decision may be you will have to get out of it. In the face of such a dilemma, one ignorance against another, you need to ask your intuition. Do you want to see us with your own eyes, or simply believe what your thinkers say? That is the real question!

After thousands of years, one day, this choice was going to be inevitable: choosing between two unknowns. Why spread such a message among yourselves?

Translate and spread this message widely. This action will affect your future in an irreversible and historical way at the scale of millenniums, otherwise, it will postpone a new opportunity to choose to several years later, at least one generation, if it can survive. Not choosing stands for undergoing other people’s choice. Not informing others stands for running the risk of obtaining a result that is contrary to one’s expectations. Remaining indifferent means giving up one’s free will.

It is all about your future. It is all about your evolution.

It is possible that this invitation does not receive your collective assent and that, because of a lack of information, it will be disregarded. Nevertheless no individual desire goes unheeded in the universe. Imagine our arrival tomorrow. Thousands of ships. A unique cultural shock in today´s mankind´s history. It will then be too late to regret about not making a choice and spreading the message because this discovery will be irreversible. We do insist that you do not rush into it, but do think about it ! And decide ! The big medias will not be necessarily interested in spreading this message. It is therefore your task, as an anonymous yet an extraordinary thinking and loving being, to transmit it.

You are still the architects of your own fate...“DO YOU WISH THAT WE SHOW UP?”

NOTE: I've read and heard the warnings for over 6 years. This document is just one of many that people have claimed to receive. I don't wish to speculate what may or may not happen...but I do have some perception of what may be in store for humanity if we continue on the path we're currently on...Lon

Gustave: Search For A Man-Eater

For 20 years, near Lake Tanganyika in Burundi, locals have been terrorized by one of the largest freshwater crocodiles in the world. The 25 foot long crocodile, named Gustave, has an insatiable appetite... for people. He is known for having eaten over 200 people, though some believe that number to be as high as 300. In the past, all attempts to catch or kill Gustave were unsuccessful. Still, for one man who has made it his mission to hunt the crocodile, there may be a more humane solution to stopping this man-eater.

Patrice Fey is a Frenchman, but he's been living in Burundi for the past two decades. He became something of a local hero 11 years ago when he made his first attempts to capture Gustave using a trap, but that didn't work out well. "He must have a very strong survival instinct , because he has survived while other crocodiles were massacred," Fey told the BBC Brasil.

Despite the fact that Gustave has eaten so many people, Fey still has respect for his elusive nemesis--and does not intend on killing him.

We live in an age where creatures like these are increasingly rare. He's a prehistoric animal, very fat. In the water, he's like a hippo. But he still has all his teeth, suggesting that he is about 68 years.

During one three month period that he followed the crocodile, 17 people were eaten. This had lead Fey to estimate that Gustave has probably eaten over 300 in the last 20 years. "I do not think it is a matter of taste, but a question of what he can hunt," he said.

Fey points out that Gustave's massive size likely makes acquiring more conventional meals difficult--plus a diet of fish probably wouldn't be enough to satisfy his appetite. Faye says the crocodile "has no choice but to hunt easier prey," and humans in or around the lake are good candidates.

So, what's the best way to humanely deal with a man-eating crocodile? Fey hopes that following Gustave's movements more closely might reduce the numbers of people being eaten.

I have informants. In Burundi, thousands of people who live along the lake, especially fishermen who spend most of their time in water. I gave them a dozen cell phones to tell me where he is.

Still, some gun-wielding locals have made attempts to stop Gustave themselves. "Many fishermen said they had hit him. He seems to have bullet proof leather."

It may take more than a bullet to stop an enormous, man-eating crocodile--or to discourage his devoted follower, Patrice Fey.

I will remain faithful to Gustave and expect him to do the same.

NOTE: In Capturing the Killer Croc Patrice Fey and other scientists attempted to capture Gustave. According to the film, Patrice had done two years of investigations before the capture attempt. However, Patrice and the scientists were given a 2-month time slot for capturing the beast; afterwards, a change of government would risk plunging the country into civil war. First, a trap cage weighing a ton and nearly 30 feet in length was developed. The team then located Gustave and installed the cage and baited it -- and also placed a hidden infrared camera into the cage. Several different forms of bait were installed, yet none of them attracted Gustave or any other creature. The scientists also then installed three giant snares on strategic banks to increase their chances of capture; although smaller crocodiles were caught by the traps, Gustave wasn't.

In their last week of time before having to leave the country, the team then installed a live goat into the cage; but night after night were no results yielded. On one night, the camera gave out due to the stormy weather; the next morning, the cage was found partially submerged and sunken into the water whilst the goat had disappeared. It was speculated that the rising waters from the rain helped the monster to escape his hunters, or that the trap cage failed; but with no visual evidence as to what happened and now forced to leave Burundi due to political conditions, the team was only left to guess and will never know for sure what exactly happened that night

UPDATE: As of May 2013, the last reported sighting of Gustave was in February 2008 by National Geographic sources. A lack of subsequent reports makes Gustave's current status uncertain. Here is a link to a 2005 National Geographic report on this beast - Gustave, the Killer Crocodile

XENU Pays A Visit?

Many years ago, I picked up a copy of Dianetics: The Modern Science Of Mental Health and quickly read the entire book. At the time, I wasn't very open-minded to the 'wonders of the universe'...and this book certainly didn't offer any answers. That was as close as I got to Scientology.

Over the years, I have discussed Scientology with several active believers and ex-members. I suppose if you're into L. Ron Hubbard's concepts, then you'll fit into the regulated lifestyle. It never appealed to me, for a lot of reasons. But some of the stories that have been made public over recent years assure me that I made the correct choice.

Anyway...I haven't railed about Scientology for awhile, but recent news articles are a bit intriguing:

- Three aircraft reports seeing 'two flat silver discs' on final approach

- Objects showed up on air traffic control radar - then vanished

- UFOs were just 100ft below one of the jets, a Boeing 777

- They were above Scientology HQ in East Grinstead, West Sussex

Three passenger jets sighted UFOs above Britain's Scientology headquarters on their approach to Gatwick Airport, a report has revealed.

Their pilots each saw 'two flat, silver discs', with some flying within 100ft.

Air traffic control then spotted six UFOs on their radars before they suddenly disappeared.

Spooky: Two UFOs, similar to the one pictured here, were spotted by jets on their approach to Gatwick, right

Eerie coincidence: The encounter happened very close to the British Scientology headquarters in East Grinstead, Werst Sussex
The encounter, which was probed by the UK Airprox Board, happened on December 30 just before 9am.

A Boeing 777 was flying over the Scientology headquarters in East Grinstead minutes from touchdown when all three pilots on the flightdeck spotted the objects about 100ft below them moving slowly or stationary, according to the report.

A following Boeing 767 also spotted the two white or silver discs, which were at approximately 1,000ft above ground. An Airbus A319 then landed before the objects disappeared from ATC screens.

The crew of the first aircraft described seeing 'some some sort of toy'. The information was passed on to air traffic control and then to police.

Investigators offered the possibility the objects could have been balloons or kites but, with the UFOs remaining untraced, the incidents was deemed unassessable.

The encounter came the day before Scientologists, followed by actor Tom Cruise, carved a message to aliens in hills in New Mexico, America. The cult believes aliens inhabit human bodies.

3 pilots report seeing UFOs over UK’s Scientology HQ

Pilots aboard three passenger planes in the vicinity of London's Gatwick Airport late last year reported seeing a pair of "flat, silver discs" hovering near the UK headquarters of the Church of Scientology.

Air traffic controllers also said that they saw six UFOs on radar screens before the objects disappeared, according to a report issued last week by the UK's Airprox Board.

The board examines reports of air traffic safety violations in UK airspace and recommends safety measures. Last week's report failed to find an explanation for the pilot sightings from last Dec. 30 at about 9 a.m. It did describe how a Boeing 777 pilot raised the alarm at 8:53 a.m. after spotting "two flat silver discs"over the Scientology headquarters in East Grinstead minutes from touchdown at Gatwick. The three pilots on the flightdeck said that they saw the objects about 100 feet below them, moving slowly or stationary, according to the report.

Scientology follower Tom Cruise has starred in numerous science fiction movies, but authorities are wondering about the scientific facts behind the recent sightings in the UK.

Minutes later a Boeing 767 and an Airbus 319 saw the same "saucer-like" shapes hovering about 1,000 feet above ground. The 777 crew said they looked "man-made" and "toy-like."

Airprox Investigators considered explanations including that the objects were balloons or kites.

The juxtaposition of UFOs and Scientology is not surprising. Some think that the movement, which purports to have the answers to life's questions, believes that aliens inhabit humans, although Scientologists insists the "alien descendent" theory is a set of "scurrilous statements, issued by the Internet fringe." The movement's most celebrated follower is actor Tom Cruise.

The encounter came the day before Scientologists supposedly carved messages to aliens in an "alien space cathedral" in the hills in northeastern New Mexico. - NY Daily News

Talking Sasquatch?

The following audio was recently posted by 'Sasquatch Ontario'. What's your assessment...could this be legit? I will say that some of the vocalization is very similar to what I heard during an outing in south central Pennsylvania (very near the northern end of Michaux State Park) in 1998.

Audio / Video - Sasquatch Acknowledged Witness By Name

We've been pressing for months for him to say Mike and this was the first visit where there was personal verbal acknowledgement. This accomplishment is due to persistence, patience and a mutual respect from both sides.

These sasquatch have never stopped moving forward in their curiosity and acknowledgement.

Each visit gives us new perspective, new experiences and new activity as there's always something different happening with each visit.

The last three visits have produced incredible historic audio which enables us to gain more perspective as we continually move forward.

This non evasive approach is once again proving to be significant in it's simplicity.

Treat them with respect and the experiences are life changing.

There's much more to this species than being just another animal. They're so much more. One just has to listen to these vocalizations with an open perspective and see that we're dealing with something so unique that killing even one is just wrong.

Sasquatch aren't like us, but they're people.

NOTE: I have followed this user from awhile now. I believe much of the video is coming from southern Ontario in areas that substantial Sasquatch activity has been noted by well as several of my readers. Lon

Reader Submission: A 'Shadow Person' Affected My Daughter

I received the following inquiry today:

Hi, Lon, I just wanted to tell you what happened the other night at our house and ask you if I did the right thing. If you want to print this, go ahead, just don’t use my name.

My 16 year old daughter has seen spirits ever since she was a young child. She doesn’t see them as much now, but she senses them still. She says there is what she calls a “ley line” in the corner of our living room, and spirits walk it a lot. They pass through the corner of our living room, but they don’t interact with her, although at times some of them know she is aware that they are there. Both of us see shadow people quite frequently around where we live – we live in a two story townhouse apartment.

Tuesday afternoon we were both in the kitchen. Our back doors are glass, and covered with mini blinds. We had the blinds pulled halfway up. We saw a shadow person zip onto our back porch, in the daytime, which startled us considerably. There was no person attached to the shadow, it zipped onto our porch, stood there for a few seconds, and zipped back off. I was standing by the door and yanked it open. All of the neighbors in the complex work during the day, so no one could have run into one of the other units, and there was no one running down the back path to get away.

Both my daughter and I felt incredibly nauseated then. I took an Alka Seltzer, which helped only a little bit. My daughter drank some Pepsi to try and settle her stomach. After about an hour I felt better, but my daughter didn’t. She continued to feel nauseated all day, plus her lower back began to hurt her dreadfully.

Wednesday, she was very quiet and out of sorts all day. She didn’t say much. She looked very depressed and unhappy. I asked her what was wrong several times, but she wouldn’t answer. We watched Haunted Collector and then started to watch Paranormal Witness on Syfy. During Paranormal Witness she began looking really depressed, and I got worried. I turned the show off and asked her what was wrong. She told me that ever since we saw that shadow person, she had felt sick, nauseated, worried, and fearful and her back was hurting really bad.

I didn’t know what to do – but I took her in the kitchen and I lit a white tea light candle. I put it on a plate and gave it to her. I told her to look at the light and imagine it filling her up. I stroked down her arms and legs, telling her that as I did she should imagine the light filling her. When she was able to imagine this, I took holy water and made small signs of the cross with it on her body. I then told her to imagine that the white light was around her and it was a shield. I told her to push it out of her body until it surrounded her, and to think of it as shielding her from any harm. She was able to do that. We stood there for a few more minutes. I said an Our Father and a Hail Mary. I then told her to blow out the candle. She did, and burst into tears. She said that when I touched the part of her back that was hurting with the holy water, she felt a shock, and it felt as if something left her body, and she felt much better. A few minutes later she stopped crying, said she wasn’t nauseated any more, and got something to eat. She was Ok and back to her own self by the time I went to bed.

What disturbs me is that this shadow person was strong enough to be seen in the day. Is that normal? And what did it do to her that she felt sick, had back pain, and was depressed for over a day? Is that normal? We’ve both seen shadow persons quite frequently. I think they feed on negative energy. The people who live next door to us fight amongst themselves and fight with their children quite frequently. I think their negative energy is drawing this stuff around, and since we are both susceptible to it, we are able to see the shadow persons it attracts. And of course living in a huge apartment complex also means that any negative energy around might draw these things in. This was the first time that one was able to physically affect her, though.

Anyway, do you have the answers to any of my questions about this particular shadow person? This is worrying me, since this particular one was out in the day, and the shadow was VERY dark and defined. It worries me that it seemed to be able to affect my daughter and even cause her pain. I need to know how to protect her from further harm by whatever these things are. And did I do the right thing by lighting the candle and anointing her with holy water? It did seem to help, but I wondered if I could have done anything more. It’s hard to think on your feet when confronted by a problem like this. B

NOTE: I contacted 'B' and gave her some answers and advice. For the most part, 'Shadow People' are malevolent entities that seek out the living...especially the young, the weak and the vulnerable. They are described as human shaped, sometimes wearing a hat ('Hatman' entity), and are rarely seen except for fleeting moments. They usually make themselves known to children, especially at night, while watching them sleep. These entities are dangerous. They possess the ability to excrete the 'life force' from the living over an extended period of time. If you are encountering these beings, please seek help!

 NSA HAS BEEN RECORDING YOU......................................................................................!

UPDATE: Apple, Facebook, Microsoft and Google have all denied involvement in the PRISM program.
EARLIER: A top-secret April PowerPoint slideshow details how the National Security Agency partnered with nine tech companies, including Apple, Microsoft and Google, to monitor users' activity, according to the Washington Post and the Guardian.
According to the presentation, the NSA got direct access to these companies' servers in order to directly watch user communications.
The program, called PRISM, is nominally aimed at foreign actors, but the Post reports that purely domestic communications could easily end up in NSA hands, so long as an algorithm estimated at least a 51 percent probability that they were foreign.
Here are the slides showing how the NSA reportedly got its hands on your data:
Prism 001

The slides reflect that nine companies participate in the program, starting with Microsoft in 2007. The following entrants were Yahoo, Google, Facebook, PalTalk, YouTube, Skype, AOL and Apple. YouTube is a Google subsidiary and Skype is a Microsoft subsidiary.

They say that the NSA gets vast amounts of information from the participating companies — email, chats, videos, photos, stored data, voice-over-IP communications, and more. The companies also take "special requests."

Many foreign communications travel through the U.S., giving the NSA the opportunity to intercept them.

The Paintsville, KY Train / UFO Crash Mystery

This incident has grabbed my attention since I read the report in 2006. Occasionally I'll search for updates and send out an inquiry or far, there has been very little response. Any pertinent information would be appreciated:

Original statement by witness:
Paintsville, Kentucky -- At exactly 2:47 a.m. on January 14, 2002, while working a coal train enroute from Russell, Kentucky to Shelbiana, Kentucky, our trailing unit and first two cars were severely damaged as we struck an unknown floating or hovering object. I know it was 2:47 because my watch froze, and to this day shows that time.

Along with my watch the entire electrical systems on both locomotives went haywire. Approaching a bend near milepost 42 in an area referred to as the Wild Kingdom, for the many different types of animals spotted there, my conductor and I saw lights coming from around the way.

This ordinarily means another train is coming and will pass on the other track. The outlay of the area is this, the river, #1 track, #2 tracks and a straight up mountainside, carved out for the laying of these tracks. I killed our lights as not to blind the oncoming crew.

As we rounded the corner our onboard computer began to flash in and out, speed recorder went nuts, and both locomotives died. Alarm bells began to ring and that’s when we saw the objects. Apparently scanning the river for something. At least three objects had several "search" lights trained there, the first object hovered about 10 to 12 feet above the track.

It was metallic silver in color with multiple colored lights near the bottom and in the middle. There were no windows or openings of any kind that we could see. It was 18 to 20 feet in length and probably ten feet high.

With both engines dead as we rounded the corner we made little noise and the first object did not respond in time, I estimate that we hit the object at 30 mph with 16,000 trailing tons behind us. It clipped the top of our lead unit then skipped back slicing a chunk out of our trailing unit and first two coal cars. The other objects vanished.

Our emergency brakes had initiated due to the loss of power and we stopped approximately a mile and a half to two miles after impact. Our power restored after we were stopped and we notified our dispatcher, located in Jacksonville, Florida of what had happened.

We were told to inspect the cars to see if they'd hold the rail and try to limp into milepost cmg 60 which used to be the Paintsville yard which is no longer in full operation. We checked everything out and the cab of the rear locomotive was demolished and smoking, the second two cars looked as if they had been hit with a giant hammer, but looked like they'd hold the rail.

We pulled into Paintsville yard at approximately 5:15 am. The huge overhead lights lining the yard were noticeably dark and the only lights came from what we assumed were railroad officials vehicles parked near the end of the track. We pulled to a stop and began unloading our grips off the wounded train. We could hear what sounded like an army of workers immediately tending to our train.

Vehicle doors slamming, guys running by in weird outfits and lights glaring from all directions, the one thing missing was railroad officials.

A guy named Ferguson shook my hand and asked me to follow him into the old yard office. We did, once inside they, and by they I mean I have no idea who these people were, began to ask us hundreds of questions, they then told us for our own protection we'd be medically tested before we could leave.

I asked repeatedly to talk to my road foreman or trainmaster and not only were these requests denied but they confiscated my conductor’s cellular phone.

Hours later we were led outside the old yard office and the strange things continued to happen, the 2 locomotives and two cars were removed from the rest of the train we had brought in and my only guess was parked 4 tracks over under a huge tent like structure buzzing with activity.

We were led off the property and told, due to national security, our silence on this matter would be appreciated.

We were then put in a railroad vehicle and taken to Martin, Kentucky were we went through questioning again with railroad officials and were then drug tested. After all of this we were sent on to Shelbiana, where we took rest for 8 hours and worked another train back to Russell. Working back we passed by Paintsville, no sign of the engines, cars, tent, people, nothing. - Report from NUFORC and confirmed by original witness

UPDATE - this interesting account is from a nearby resident:

I live near Paintsville, actually in an rural community 9 miles North of the town. I'm pretty well tied in to the community and monitor EMS/Police/Fire frequently. Our local Ham club works with and has members from local EM agencies and I just heard about this incident today.

The railroads around here (CSX) pretty much take care of their own business. Very little is ever mentioned of a railway incident. If someone is hit and killed on the tracks, there may be a mention on the local news but that's about it. Our local news does not really seek the story. If you call with a story, they might print it but no in depth reporting. My supervisor knows more than I do about the goings on in town and he had not heard of this either.

It is possible for this to have happened and have been kept quiet, especially if it happened between two towns like Russell and Paintsville. There is a lot of the river bank that is not visible to the public through this area.

I happen to know a gentleman who works for them as a safety engineer. I will try and contact the individual and ask him about this. We spoke last year so I think if he knew about it, he would have told me.

NOTE: Like I previously stated, this is still an ongoing case. If anyone has additional information on this incident, I would love to see it.
