As UFO’s suddenly grace the covers of the NY Times and Washington Post in the age of “fake news” and #conspiracy memes, how can we make sense of these revelations without losing our grip on reality? “Close Encounters of the Fifth Kind” is a feature documentary presented by Dr. Steven Greer, the global authority on extraterrestrials who created the worldwide disclosure movement and routinely briefs presidents and heads of state on the ET phenomenon. His previous works, Sirius and Unacknowledged, broke crowdfunding records and ignited a grassroots movement. In this film, Dr. Greer presents the most dangerous information that the architects of secrecy don’t want you to know: how forgotten spiritual knowledge holds the key to humans initiating contact with advanced ET civilizations. The film features groundbreaking video and photographic evidence and supporting interviews from prominent figures such as Adam Curry of Princeton’s PEAR Lab; legendary civil rights attorney Daniel Sheehan; and Dr. Russell Targ, who headed the CIA’s top secret remote viewing program. Their message: For thousands of people, contact has begun. This is their story.

In the first book of the In Her Name: The Last War trilogy, the Terran survey ship Aurora makes a startling discovery in an uncharted star system: two planets inhabited by an advanced, and decidedly unfriendly, non-human civilization. Disabled by gigantic alien warships before it can escape, the Aurora is boarded by nightmarish blue-skinned warriors with claws and fangs who slaughter the crew in ritual combat using primitive weapons. The sole survivor, Midshipman Ichiro Sato, is returned to Earth as a messenger bearing a device that warns of an impending attack. For that is the way of the Kreelan Empire, which has waged war against civilizations across the stars in its quest for a savior, one not of their own blood, foretold in an ages-old prophecy. With only a few generations left before their ancient species faces extinction, the Kreelans will wage their last war against humanity, hoping against hope for redemption of sins long past. If you’re new to the In Her Name series, here is the author’s recommended reading order: The Last War Trilogy — First Contact — Legend Of The Sword — Dead Soul The Redemption Trilogy — Empire — Confederation — Final Battle The First Empress Trilogy — From Chaos Born — Forged In Flame — Mistress Of The Ages

Young Midshipman Ichiro Sato joined the Terran Navy to escape a tyrannical father and find freedom among the stars. He had no idea when he boarded the survey starship Aurora for his first assignment that he and his crew would make humanity’s first contact with a sentient alien species. In an uncharted star system where Aurora’s crew discovers two planets inhabited by a non-human civilization, Aurora is disabled by gigantic alien starships before she can escape. Boarded by nightmarish blue-skinned warriors with claws and fangs, the aliens learn all there is to know about the ship, including all its stored information about humanity, before the crew is slaughtered in a series of ritual combats. Ichiro, the sole survivor, is returned to Earth as a messenger to warn of the aliens’ coming invasion of human space. For that is the Way of the Kreelan Empire, an ancient and dying race that has waged war across the galaxy for a hundred thousand years, slaughtering every sentient species it has encountered in a desperate search for the One, a savior foretold in an ages-old prophecy who can rescue them from looming extinction. For the Kreelans, who will die out in a handful of generations, the conflict with humanity will be The Last War. With Earth leading a fragile coalition of military forces to mount a defense against what many believe is nothing more than a hoax, Ichiro again finds himself at the sharp end of the spear aboard a Terran destroyer. Together with journalist Stephanie Guillaume, Legionnaire Roland Mills, and the irrepressible General James Sparks, Ichiro and the other men and women of the coalition put their lives on the line against an enemy none of them could ever have imagined.

DWB: Ohio Cop Admits He Pulls Over Black Man For “Direct Eye Contact” [VIDEO]

Apparently, “driving while Black” is still a crime, especially in the town of Dayton, Ohio.

John Felton, a Black man, was visiting his mother in the city when he noticed a police officer was trailing him, most likely due to his out-of-state plates. Since we’re living in a world where a Sandra Bland suicide follows ticky-tack arrests, he did the logical thing and started filming on his cell phone.

The video, obtained by The David Pakman Show, revealed racial profiling in the highest sense of the definition.

“You’ve been tailing me for how long? You just needed a reason to pull me over,” Felton says after the unidentified white cop tells him he failed to put his turn signal on approximately 100 feet from the corner. “No disrespect, I don’t have nothing against police officers, but all this sh*t that’s going on now? That’s some scary sh*t. To have a police officer just tail you, and then you pull me over, ’cause you said I didn’t signal — what? Do you know how it looks?”

After the routine 10-minute wait while the records check out, the officer returns to issue his citation and offered up the real reason he stopped Felton.

“Because you made direct eye contact with me, and you held on to it while I was passing you,” the officer said.

“What?” an incredulous Felton asked. “I didn’t even see you.”

“I’m not gonna argue about it anymore, sir,” the officer continued. “If you want to keep talking, though, I’ll just get your license back and give you a citation for the violation, and we can take it to court. I’m not gonna argue about it anymore.”

Had Felton not been filming, there would be no evidence to support the claims when he told people of the flimsy

Yet, the evidence is down below. Watch it, starting at the :57 mark.

Meet The Real-Life Astronomer Who Inspired Jodi Foster’s Character In ‘Contact’

Are we alone in this vast cosmos? That’s the burning question that drove Dr. Eleanor Arroway — a fictional astronomer in Carl Sagan’s book “Contact,” who was played by Jodi Foster in the 1997 film adaptation — on her epic quest for extra-terrestrial life.

And it’s also motivated the career of Dr. Jill Tarter, the real-life astronomer said to have inspired Arroway’s character.

(Story continues below image.)
jodie foster contact
Jodi Foster as Dr. Eleanor Arroway in the film “Contact.”

Tarter retired in 2012 after spending 35 years scanning the skies for alien signals, and more than a decade as director of the Center for SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Research in Mountain View, Calif. But she’s still actively involved in the search for life — and is encouraging the next generation of E.T. hunters.

To learn just what Tarter is up to now, and find out what’s motivated her to keep up the hunt, HuffPost Science emailed her a series of questions. Here, lightly edited, are her answers:

What makes you sure that alien life is out there?

I’m not sure. This is a question that we are trying to answer. It is as legitimate to ask of the universe, “Is life ubiquitous, or singular?” as it is to ask “How did it all begin?” “How will it end?” and “Are there other universes?” During my own career, the discovery of extremophiles and exoplanets have made the universe appear more bio-friendly, but that is not the same as saying that biology, and life-as-we-don’t-yet-know-it exist beyond the Earth. This question will only be answered by exploration. That is what SETI is trying to do — and we do not know the answer.

“If they can get here, then they are far more technologically advanced than we are, and the reality is that they will set the rules of the game.”

What got you interested in the search for life?

The Cyclops Report from 1971 — written by Barney Oliver and John Billingham — was the result of a series of summer studies at NASA Ames and Stanford. In reading that workshop report, I was impressed by the notion that after millennia of asking priests and philosophers what to believe about life beyond Earth, the middle of the 20th century presented us with some tools that permitted scientists and engineers to do experiments to try to find the answer. Telescopes, rather than belief systems, could potentially show us what is, rather than what others said we should believe. I realized that I was in the right place, at the right time, with the right skills (undergrad degree in engineering physics and Ph.D in astronomy) to join this exploration. I got hooked, and have stayed hooked all these years.

NASA’s chief scientist predicts we’ll find alien life within the next decade. Do you agree?

Ellen Stofan, as NASA spokesperson, was talking about finding microbes somewhere in the solar system beyond Earth. It’s a bet that I’d take, but again that’s not the same thing as knowing the answer. As for any potential mathematicians out there, NASA has excluded those searches from its astrobiology program. Doesn’t make logical or scientific sense, but it is a political reality.

Why do you think we haven’t found it yet?

Many reasons:
— We don’t yet have the right tools, and/or may not yet know the right things to look for (applies to microbes and mathematicians).
— “Beyond Earth” is vast beyond human comprehension, and we haven’t yet looked in the right places in the right way.
— We have already done so, but not recognized it.
— One of two versions of Clarke’s Third Law: Any sufficiently advanced technology will be indistinguishable from magic. Or, any sufficiently advanced technology will be indistinguishable from nature (this due to Karl Schroeder).

What’s kept you going over decades of not finding life? Does it get disappointing?

Only the interactions with politicians and funding agencies is disappointing. The discoveries in the realms of exoplanets and extremophiles continue to excite. Our ability to search in different ways continues to improve (now at exponential rates). The question grows more, not less, important as time goes by.

At what point do we give up the hunt?

Only after searches have been systematic and inclusive enough that null results become significant — a long way from where we are today. Practically, when humanity in all its forms of government, corporate, or private reaches a threshold of pain or indifference and is no longer willing to fund the exploration.

Should we beam out our own signals into space, for potential aliens to find?

The book SETI 2020 suggested that since we are such a young, emerging technology, we should listen first, and transmit only after we’ve become an older, stable technology capable of undertaking very long-term projects such as transmitting. Not all of my colleagues agree with this.

What will happen if aliens find us before we find them?

Whatever they dictate.

That sounds ominous. Stephen Hawking has warned that aliens might want to conquer Earth and enslave us. Do you worry about that?

Not necessarily ominous, just a reality check. If they can get here, then they are far more technologically advanced than we are, and the reality is that they will set the rules of the game. As to what their intentions might be — I’m not competent enough to say (and neither is Stephen Hawking, as smart as he is) — extraterrestrial psychology is a field without any experts.

“I grew a tough skin, and after being “one of the boys” for decades, finally woke up and started trying to support other females around me and under me.”

NASA and other organizations want to go to Mars. Should we? And what do you think about setting up a colony there?

The dinosaurs did not have a space program. Humanity is a single-point of failure as long as they occupy only one planet. Spreading beyond Earth is a good strategy for longevity. It is however, no guarantee if we take all our old habits with us.

You’ve spent decades working in a male-dominated field. What was that like? Has science become more welcoming for women?

Yes, science has become more welcoming, but there is still a long way to go. Fortunately the worst offenders are dying off, and from what I can see of the younger generations of scientists, both males and females are adopting an attitude of partnership and shared responsibility towards life and work. That’s a good thing, because there is growing evidence that postponing childbirth until the mother gains tenure, or partnership, or whatever goal of security/seniority, a strategy that was adopted by many of my generation and the baby-boomers, has led to significant rise in rate of learning and other disorders in offspring.

What was it like? I grew a tough skin, and after being “one of the boys” for decades, finally woke up and started trying to support other females around me and under me.

What’s your role in the search for life, now that you’re retired?

Attempting to raise the money to keep the searches going as long as may be necessary; something I did not succeed at while I was Director. I don’t want to lose the next generation of clever scientists and engineers willing to take a chance on SETI, but unwilling to jeopardize their ability to support their families. Roller coasters are only fun as rides in amusement parks, they are a real drag in the world of funded research.

As we all know, your work inspired Ellie Arroway’s character in “Contact.” What did you make of the movie?

“Contact” was a fantastic movie. It has now been out there so long, that I experience many young colleagues who tell me that this movie was what inspired them to go into science. That’s the best endorsement I can think of! We need a Contact II.

In the movie, Arroway gets into a pod and travels through a series of wormholes, not knowing if she’ll make it back. Given the opportunity, would you get into that pod?

Yup, in a heartbeat.
