1 Jun 2019 – There is no discernible evidence that Luis Elizondo ever worked for a government UFO program, much less led one… “We know that UFOs exist. This is no longer an issue. The issue is why are they here? Where are they coming from? And what is the technology behind these devices that we are observing?”… The grainy footage of tiny, darting objects, combined with Elizondo’s earnest claims of “compelling evidence” for “phenomena” he couldn’t identify, made for great television.

There are specific growth impulses that make it impossible to stop the growth of the outstanding loans. Not even with regulations. This has tremendous consequences for our society.

Dan Cohen and Max Blumenthal | The Grayzone – TRANSCEND Media Service, 11 Feb 2019

Before the fateful day of January 22, fewer than one in five Venezuelans had heard of Juan Guaidó. Only a few months ago, the 35-year-old was an obscure character in a politically marginal far-right group closely associated with gruesome acts of street violence. He is the product of a decade-long project overseen by Washington’s elite regime change trainers. While posing as a champion of democracy, he has spent years at the forefront of a violent campaign of destabilization.
