Exopolitics and a Positive Human Future
by Alfred Lambremont Webre, J.D., M.Ed.
Exopolitics, the new political science of outer space, is the science of relations between our human civilization and other intelligent civilizations in the Universe. Like all models, Exopolitics provides a path for minds to go where they had not ventured before. Since its first formal expression in the year 2000, the Exopolitics model has provided an accelerating interface between human and advanced Extraterrestrial societies. The degree of conscious interaction and cooperation among human society and advanced, ethical Extraterrestrial civilizations will be a determining factor in a positive human future. In our era, Exopolitics – the science of human-Extraterrestrial relations - may function as a new survival science for humanity. The age-long exopolitical quarantine of Earth appears to be ending. A first step through this quarantine is a public interest diplomacy mission to the peaceful, ethical intelligent civilization on Mars.
Part One – The Exopolitics ModelExopolitics, the new political science of outer space, is the science of relations between our human civilization and other intelligent civilizations in the Universe. Disclosure of, and governmental and public acknowledgement and understanding of an Extraterrestrial presence on Earth have been accelerating since the year 2000, the year the Exopolitics model was first published on Earth.
The Exopolitics Model is the obverse of the 20th Century canon of science, which held that all intelligent life ends at Earth’s geostationary orbit.  The penalty for any professional not towing this scientific line was probable loss of professional status and harassment by government authorities.  One 20th Century bright spot in official terrestrial attitudes towards other species of intelligent life occurred on Dec. 18, 1978, when UN General Assembly decision 33/426, 1978 was approved, inviting “interested Member States to take appropriate steps to coordinate on a national level scientific research and investigation into extraterrestrial life.” 
The Exopolitics Model, first published in 2000 and presented in June 2000 by this author at a scholarly conference at the
chaired by Prof. Leo Sprinkle, may be one candidate for triggering a crucial sea change in human perception.  Exopolitics is the new political science of outer space, and is the science of relations between our human civilization and advanced civilizations in the Universe. The Associated Press reported that Exopolitics was nominated for 2005 new Word of the Year.  Universityof Wyoming
The Exopolitics Model holds that we live in a highly populated Universe filled with intelligent, evolving civilizations operating under Universal law, with governance systems and mediated by Universe politics. We on Earth are just becoming aware that we live in a populated Universe. 
Like all models, Exopolitics provides a path for minds to go where they had not ventured before. The Exopolitics Model provides the interface between human and Extraterrestrial societies. The Exopolitics Model is a human version of the 100 monkeys syndrome, that 100 monkeys washing their yams on one island will result in all monkeys washing their yams. Exopolitics allows us all to internalize a truth: that we are part of a populated Cosmos and that the neighbours are outreaching to us at this time.
As Thomas Kuhn (The Structure of Scientific Revolutions  ) has written, scientific revolutions come about in paradigm-shifts, in sea-changes about the way that our entire human species chooses to see its reality. No amount of scientific data will change any single individual’s mind about humanity’s living in a populated Universe, filled with diverse advanced civilizations, some of which are seeking to engage us now. Each person has to want to change their own mind, on the basis of available data and context.
So far, 21st Century North American public opinion is congruent with an Extraterrestrial presence. The 2002 Roper poll on “Extraterrestrial & UFOs: American beliefs and personal experiences”, using rigorous scientific polling methods, found that about half (48%) of
U.S.adults believe that intelligent off-planet cultures are now visiting Earth, and that two-thirds (67%) of adults believe in the existence of intelligent life in the Universe. Moreover, 72% of U.S. Adults believe the U.S. government is not telling all it knows about Extraterrestrial craft visiting Earth. 14% of Americans say they have had a close encounter, and 2% have had an encounter with Extraterrestrial life. Among those who believe in abductions by Extraterrestrials, 33% claim they either experienced or know someone who experienced a close encounter with Extraterrestrial life.  U.S.
Part Two – Exopolitics & Extraterrestrial Disclosure since the Year 2000As a meme or social thought form, the Exopolitics model is now driving public policy regarding governmentally classified programmes, observations, surveillance, and files of Extraterrestrial-related phenomena. Since the year 2000, governments from various regions of the Earth have begun to release formerly secret files and make public statements regarding reports of unexplained UFOs (Unidentified Flying Objects) which may be Extraterrestrial space craft or terrestrial craft based on Extraterrestrial technology, known as ARVs (Alien Reproduction Craft). Likewise, former government officials, space experts, pilots and other officially-sanctioned observers have also come forward to disclose their own experiences and testimony regarding the presence of Extraterrestrial civilizations on Earth.
On May 9, 2001, a group of witnesses from over 100 high-level governmental, political, military-intelligence witnesses – a number of whom are here at the X-Conference - to the presence of Extraterrestrial civilizations on Earth stated their testimony at a Disclosure Project press conference in Washington, DC. Dr. Carol Rosin of the Institute for Cooperation in Space (ICIS) testified as to Dr. Wernher von Braun’s whistleblower revelations of a possible false flag “War Against the Evil ETs” that would be simulated by the
military-intelligence in order to perpetuate the permanent war economy and the Extraterrestrial truth embargo  U.S.
On May 11, 2004, the Mexican Department of Defense released secret Extraterrestrial craft sighting reports.  On May 20, 2005, the Brazilian Air Force released classified Extraterrestrial and UFO reports to researchers.  Concurrently,
Peruand  (and other nations) have also released secret Extraterrestrial craft reports.  Chile
On September 25, 2005, Hon. Paul Hellyer, former Minister of Defence and Deputy Prime Minister of
, declared that “UFOs are as real as the planes over your head.” Hellyer warned, "The United States military are preparing weapons which could be used against the aliens, and they could get us into an intergalactic war without us ever having any warning.”  Mr. Hellyer also states he would like “to see what (Extraterrestrial) technology there might be that could eliminate the burning of fossil fuels within a generation ... that could be a way to save our planet."  Canada
In early March 2007, former Arizona Governor Fife Symington recanted public shortly after the 10th anniversary of the Phoenix Lights and stated on national television that he had witnessed a 2 mile-wide Extraterrestrial spacecraft sighted by over 10,000 persons as it glided silently over
on March 13, 1997.  On November 12, 2007, James Fox and Leslie Kean of the Coalition for Freedom of Information brought together a Phoenix, AZ National Press Club panel - moderated by Fife Symington - of high-level witnesses of what some described as Extraterrestrial craft and phenomena. These included retired a Generals; pilots, and former government officials in a press conference patterned on the Disclosure Project press conference of May 9, 2001.  Washington, DC
On March 22, 2007, the French Space Agency announced it was making public its secret files on possible Extraterrestrial sightings at www.cnes-geipan.fr. The New Scientist reports: “Of the 1600 cases registered since 1954, nearly 25% are classified as ‘type D’, meaning that ‘despite good or very good data and credible witnesses, we are confronted with something we can't explain.”  On May 2, 2007 the U.K. Ministry of Defence announced it was releasing up to 7200 secret Extraterrestrial sightings files going back to 1967, collected by DI55, a secret unit within the Ministry of Defence.” 
Exopolitics & Extraterrestrial ExperiencersIn 2006, Extraterrestrial experiencer Jim Spark’s account of his 18 year conscious interaction with a specific Extraterrestrial species was published. Sparks account, whose experiences were vetted by competent scholars like the late Dr. John Mack of the John Mack Institute at
, reads like the anthropology field notes of a great discoverer. His account documents Spark’s unique recall of an Extraterrestrial civilization’s human genetic-farming and educational outreach (aka “Abduction”) programs, as well as Sparks first hand witnessing of time travel teleportation technology (originally meant to solve humanity’s urgent environmental problems) apparently transferred by the same Extraterrestrial (or time-traveling) civilization to the U.S. Government, which has misused it for military-political purposes. Speaking through Jim Sparks account, this specific Extraterrestrial civilization give us an important public policy message: Public disclosure and sharing in this vital advanced technology can come about through a South Africa-style Truth Amnesty process covering the criminal acts accompanying the 60 year public embargo of this advanced technology. Harvard University account is a work of importance to Exopolitics and to our human future.  Sparks Sparksaccount is also congruent with accounts of whistleblowers from secret government Extraterrestrial (or time-traveler)-human liaison programs.  U.S.
Exopolitics: The Context Communication Theory of Extraterrestrial CommunicationThe Context Communication Theory of Extraterrestrial Communication, which this author developed in 1974,  holds that UFO Encounters and Extraterrestrial encounters may be validly interpreted as symbolic communications from a higher intelligent species – or a different intelligent species – to our human species. An analogy is that of a dream, which is a communication from one’s unconscious mind to the conscious mind, often in symbolic and multi-dimensional format. One uses a dream dictionary, for example, to interpret dreams. Similarly, genuine Extraterrestrial interventions or encounters can be interpreted as symbolic, multi-dimensional communications to the human community from a higher intelligent source. The Swiss psychologist Carl Jung referred to this symbolic aspect of UFOs when in his pioneering work “Flying Saucers” he called them UFOs “Mandalas” or archetypal devices for raising human consciousness.
A Context Communication Theory Interpretation of the 2006 Chicago-OHare sightingA major Extraterrestrial Intervention and UFO Sighting took place at
Chicago, Illinois( ) O'Hare on November 7, 2006. This date was Mid-Term Election Day in the USA , the date in which the Neo-conservatives lost control of both houses (U.S. Senate & House of Representatives) in the U.S. Congress. Prior to this date, it appeared as though the USA USunder the administration was head toward an internal police state, as key legislation such as the Military Commissions Act has been passed and signed under which citizens could be designated as enemy combatants for the first time since the U.S. Civil War. U.S.
Alleged O’Hare UFO Photo
Reports indicated that “at approximately 4:30 p.m on Tuesday November 7, 2006, federal authorities at Chicago O'Hare International Airport received a report that a group of twelve airport employees were witnessing a metallic, saucer-shaped craft hovering over gate C-17. According to eyewitness reports, the strange object was first spotted by a ramp employee who was ‘pushing back’ United Airlines flight 446 which was departing
Chicagofor . The ramp worker then apprised the flight crew of UA446 of the existence of the spinning, metallic object above their aircraft, and it is believed that both the pilot and co-pilot of this aircraft also witnessed the object at that time.” According to John Hilkevitch of the Chicago Tribune in an interview on CNN's 'Glenn Beck' Program: "The disk was visible for approximately two minutes and was seen by close to a dozen United Airlines employees, ranging from pilots to supervisors, who heard chatter on the radio and raced out to view it." Charlotte, North Carolina
The Chicago O'Hare airport UFO story was reported in a straightforward fashion by various major mainstream media groups such as CNN, CBS, MSNBC, Fox News, Chicago Tribune, and National Public Radio.  A United Airlines pilot came up to me after the 2007 ECETI Conference and stated that he had flown into United Gate C-17 many times, and that the airlines ground personnel there would have reported the event accurately. Several dimensions of meaning emerge from decoding the Chicago O’Hare UFO Sighting as an Extraterrestrial Context Communication in the same way that a psychotherapist might interpret a dream, for example.
Timing - November 7, 2006 was Mid-term Election Day in the USA, and the day the Neo-Conservative wing of the Republican Party (the party most identified with the permanent war economy; the 9/11 False Flag Operation; the George W. Bush Administration; and the Extraterrestrial Truth embargo) lost control both houses of Congress.
The UFO Sighting on this date may be high-lighting a turning point in the information war against the Extraterrestrial Presence, as well as in the struggle against a domestic police state about to be put in place through Patriot Acts I and II, the Military Commissions Act, and an anticipated False Flag Operation on U.S. soil by the Bush-Cheney administration.
The Chicago O’Hare craft sighting may also be a communication about the important significance of the democratic Electoral process in our planetary transformation, as to how and how human civilization can become more like advanced, ethical Extraterrestrial civilizations – i.e. participatory, democratic, and peaceful.
Location - The Chicago O’Hare UFO sighting was symbolic also because of its location. Chicago O’Hare is not only the
USA’s busiest airport, and Chicagothe ’s premier “political” Democratic city. It is also the headquarters of Sen. Barack Obama and the hometown of Sen. Hillary Clinton, two of the principal candidates in the U.S. presidential campaign who have gone on to awaken the U.S. body politic after an extreme attack on domestic constitutional rights following the 9/11 False Flag operation. The intelligence is signaling to the permanent war economy and to the population alike a very profound Exopolitical symbolic message in an archetypal format. In the end, as President Barack Obama won the 2008 election, the context communication theory communication may have been – Obama is the winner through an important electoral process. USA
Extraterrestrial or Terrestrial ARV? – As in many of the context communication theory cases, one can legitimately ask – Was the Nov 7, 2007 US Midterm Election Day Chicago-Ohare UFO an authentic Extraterrestrial vehicle, an ET vehicle driven by ETs under Treaty obligations to the U.S. military intelligence, or part of the reported U.S. covert “Alien-Reproduction Vehicle (ARV)” fleet that UFO researcher Gary McKinnon may have uncovered? I do not believe there is dispositive evidence here to judge whether the craft fits into either of these 3 categories. Therefore I am treating the craft as a “UFO” of unknown origin until further evidence may emerge.
Exopolitics & the 2008
Presidential Campaign U.S.The Exopolitics model has impacted crucial aspects of what contenders for the U.S. Presidency revealed about their activities and policies concerning Extraterrestrials. This is a key development, as the government has not yet begun to confirm any classified programmes for liaison with, observation of, surveillance of, or armed conflict against Extraterrestrial civilizations.  U.S.
For the first time since the 1976
U.S.Presidential campaign between President Jimmy Carter (Democrat) and former President Gerald R. Ford (Republican), the 2008 Presidential campaign became a significant venue for the expression of policy statements by the candidates along a spectrum of positions. Some of the candidates simply expressed puzzlement by UFOs, or stated that they had not seen a UFO. U.S.
The first to make a substantive policy statement was Gov. Bill Richardson (Dem-N.M.), now no longer in the race. This author helped brief a Dell Inc employee who asked Gov. Bill Richardson (Dem – N.M.) at an Oct. 26, 2007 Dell Inc. town hall meeting if he would pursue Extraterrestrial disclosure if elected U.S. President. When asked about the reported
Roswell, N.M.crash landing of an Extraterrestrial craft in 1947 (still classified by the government), Gov. Richardson stated: "I remember I had my constituents ask me. I was the congressman and I said, 'Well, Department of Defense, U.S. Los Alamoslabs, what is this? What is the data you have?' " he said. "Oh, it's classified" was the response, he said. "That ticked me off." "I've been in government. I've been in the Cabinet. I've been in the Congress," he said. "And I've always felt the government doesn't tell the truth as much as it should on a lot of issues." "Sure," he said with a broad grin. "I'll work with you on that." 
Four days later, Rep. Dennis Kucinich (Dem. –
) became yet another candidate to publicly discuss the Extraterrestrial issue. At a televised debate of Democratic candidates on Oct. 30, 2007, Rep. Dennis Kucinich (Dem-Ohio) was asked whether author Shirley MacLaine’s account of his having seen “gigantic triangular craft, silent, and observing him. It hovered, soundless, for 10 minutes or so, and sped away with a speed he couldn't comprehend” was correct.  Kucinich replied that he had seen a UFO, but would not confirm the details publicly either at the debate or in questioning. Nor did Kucinich engage the press in 2007 in a public policy discussion on Extraterrestrial issues. Kucinich had been briefed on Exopolitical issues by at least one leading Exopolitical expert in 2007. Two witnesses who were with Kucinich on the date of his reported sighting have since confirmed his experience as well.  Ohio
Neither of the two leading Democratic candidates, Sen. Barack Obama (Dem-Ill.) and Sen. Hillary Clinton (Dem. – N.Y.), had chose to state a public position on Extraterrestrial policy during the Campaign. In the Oct. 30, 2007 debate in which Rep. Dennis Kucinich was asked about his UFO sighting, Sen. Obama – who has proposed canceling the U.S. Moon-Mars Challenger programme for 5 years - deflected away a question about his opinion of intelligent life in elsewhere Universe by stating that his first obligation would be to tend to life here on Earth. Hillary Clinton’s position as the Clinton White House policy principal on Extraterrestrial matters became public knowledge thorough a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) release on Nov. 2, 2007. Yet, the Clinton Presidential Library on Dec. 6, 2007 opposed the Freedom of Information Act release of Hillary Clinton’s notes and records relating to her participation in the Laurence Rockefeller Initiative on Extraterrestrial Intelligence during the
administration.  Clinton
Canadian researcher Grant Cameron, who has maintains websites dedicated to Hillary Clinton’s and to U.S. President’s ET/UFO history, states that he has traced the Clinton’s interest in Extraterrestrial issues and UFOs to a UFO encounter which a member of the Clinton family had in Arkansas prior to Bill Clinton becoming President. On April 30, 2008, Hillary Clinton’s long history as the prime coordinator of Exopolitical information in the Clinton White House during 1993-1996 was documented in an Open Letter to Hillary Clinton by researcher Stephen Bassett, director of the Extraterrestrial Phenomena Political Action Committee (X-PPAC) of
.  Washington, DC
Following his election as 44th U.S. President on Nov. 4, 2008, U.S. President Barack Obama has nominated several Exopolitics or UFO-connected staff or Cabinet members, John Podesta, C-Chair of the Obama Presidential Transition Team, on Oct. 22, 2202 at the National Press Club (Washington, DC) stated: "I think it's time to open the books on questions that have remained in the dark on the question of government investigations of UFOs. It's time to find out what the truth really is that's out there. We ought to do it because it's right, we ought to do it because the American people, quite frankly, can handle the truth and we ought to do it because it's the law." 
The appointments of Hillary Clinton as
Secretary of State and of Bill Richardson at U.S. Secretary of Commerce, each of whom has a background in Exopolitical governmental programs, may signal the Extraterrestrial Disclosure – whether officially acknowledged or not – will come during the Obama Administration. U.S.
: An Exopolitics Trial Balloon JapanLikewise, the Exopolitics model is now driving , the first Earthly government in the 21st Century to have articulated trial balloons of a positive public policy towards Extraterrestrial civilizations. Perhaps the most remarkable display of public governmental Exopolitical policy discussion in the 21st Century occurred in Japan during the week of December 17-20, 2007. Coincidentally, this author was in Japan at the invitation of a non-governmental organization in Exopolitical consultations during the week of Dec. 17-20, 2007 on the subject of Extraterrestrial Policy and Earth Changes. Japan
On Dec. 18, 2007, key members of the Japanese cabinet and the opposition parties began a public discussion on policy towards Extraterrestrials that was widely reported in the Japanese and international media. Opposition Democratic Party of Japan MP Ryuji Yamane questioned as to why the government of Japan was not researching UFOs or preparing a response if UFOs were to fly over Japan, and who alluded to "frequent reports of UFO sightings." The first Japanese government official to respond was Chief Cabinet Secretary Nobutaka Machimura. His official statement noted the government had "not confirmed sightings of unidentified flying objects believed to be from outer space." Still, "I definitely believe they exist," Machimura said. 
At a subsequent news conference, Japanese Defence Minister Shigeru Ishiba issued what could be considered the most positive public statements about Extraterrestrial life since the 1978 United Nations resolution. ``There are no grounds for us to deny there are unidentified flying objects and some life-form that controls them,'' Ishiba said. ``Few discussions have been held on what the legal grounds are'' for a military response.
In effect, Ishiba went on to state that under the terms of Japan’s pacifist constitution, if Extraterrestrials were to land in peace, there would be no legal grounds on which Japan could attack them. ``If they descended, saying `People of the Earth, let's make friends,' it would not be considered an urgent, unjust attack on our country,'' he said. ``How can we convey our intentions if they don't understand what we are saying?'' 
The position of the Minister of Defense of Japan is in sharp contrast to the information war that the permanent war economy have been carrying out against the ethical advanced Extraterrestrial presence since the early 1950s. 
Exopolitics: 2008 Extraterrestrial Interventions & “Openness” Disclosure ManagementIn 2008, there appears to have developed a meaningful, though as yet officially unacknowledged, correlation in between major Extraterrestrial Interventions, and subsequent reported Disclosure Management events by major powers involved in Exopolitical affairs, such as the United Nations, U.S. Naval Intelligence, leading Western bloc UN Member Nations such as the UK and France, and perhaps the longest standing Disclosure Management agency – the Vatican.
Exopolitics & the United NationsThe year 2008 began with disputed reports of an unusual February 12, 2008 off-the-record briefing at the United Nations headquarters in
of high-ranking UN officials and Members Nation delegations by a credible military attaché.  There are conflicting and unconfirmed reports that an off-the-record briefing of approximately 40 representatives of 28 nations may have taken place at the United Nations on February 12, 2008. Dr. Michael Salla has documented several exopolitical studies of this reported briefing.  New York
One policy reportedly emerging from this briefing (if it in fact did occur) is that of a new “openness” towards the Extraterrestrial presence amongst the participant nations, provided the ET presence would continue to show itself in the Earthly skies. One can hypothesize that the Extraterrestrial Intervention over Stephenville, Texas (USA) five weeks earlier on January 8, 2008 in which a mile-wide extraterrestrial craft reportedly was sighted over this small City within 60 miles of the Summer While House in Crawford Texas (U.S. Air Force fighters were seen by witnesses scrambling after the craft) would have been such a triggering event for the alleged UN-ET briefing.
Another major Extraterrestrial Intervention occurred on April 21, 2008, dubbed the Phoenix Red Lights, a series of lights in a similar configuration to the lights that appeared as part of the two-mile wide space craft that glided over the city of
Phoenix, on March 13, 1997. While initially thought to be hoaxed, subsequent investigation revealed that witnesses stated U.S. Air Force fighters had been launched from Luke Air Force base in Arizona in chase of the craft, and that the extraterrestrial intervention was a genuine one. Notably, one branch of the Vatican Observatory is in has a research facility at the Phoenix Universityof Arizonain . (Its headquarters is in Tucson, Arizona ). Castelgandolfo, Italy
A Context Communications Theory of Extraterrestrial Communications interpretation of the Phoenix Red Lights of April 21, 2008 broadcast on Exopolitics Radio suggested that the Extraterrestrial intelligence behind the Phoenix Red Lights were actually highlighting a United Nations-related ET event, also occurring on April 21, 2008 - an effort by civil society to force implementation of a 1978 UN General Assembly Decision regarding “extraterrestrial life.”  On April 21, 2008, at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, Civil society in the form of Four non-governmental organizations - Exopolitics Institute, Institute for Cooperation in Space (ICIS), Exopolitics Toronto, and the Institute for Multi-track Diplomacy - launched a joint initiative to urge the implementation of a historic UN General Assembly Decision concerning extraterrestrial life and UFOs, adopted on December 18, 1978. 2008 marks the 30th anniversary of UN General Assembly Decision 33/426 that invited: “Member States to take appropriate steps to coordinate on a national level scientific research and investigation into extraterrestrial life, including unidentified flying objects.” The Decision further invited Member States to “inform the Secretary-General of the observations, research and evaluation of such activities.”
The NGOs have sent letters to the governments of
France, the United Kingdom, Mexicoand requesting each to forward to the UN Secretary General details of documents concerning UFOs each country has publicly released in the last several years. The NGOs will be following up with meetings with the UN Outer Space Committee; the office of the UN Secretary General Ban; the office of the UN General Assembly President and others reminding them of the 30th anniversary of General Assembly Decision 33/426 and requesting meetings to discuss implementation; and informing them of recent observations, research and evaluation by Member States concerning extraterrestrial life and UFOs.  The main goal of the joint NGO initiative is to have the UN Secretary General take steps to implement General Assembly Decision 33/426. Brazil
Observers like Come Carpentier have postulated that there may be a central coordinating body within NATO or a similar MJ-12-like body (the
government’s central coordinating body of Disclosure Management) for Disclosure Management by the principal actors in the permanent war economy. Like the January 8, 2008 Stephenville, Texas Extraterrestrial intervention, the April 21, 2008 Phoenix Red Lights appear to have triggered consequent Disclosure Management steps by two major Exopolitical Disclosure Management actors – The U.K. Ministry of Defence, and the Vatican, itself probably the oldest Disclosure Management agency on Earth. Moreover, the steps the Vatican and the U.K. Ministry of Defence (MOD) have taken are so closely coordinated in time – separated by less than 24 hours – that it seems not unreasonable to hypothesize that Vatican/Vatican Intelligence Agency (S.I.V.) and the British MOD actions are more than synchronistically linked, but in fact part of a new mutually agreed upon “openness” policy. U.S.
Exopolitics: Disclosure Management & The
In a context communication of its own, the
Vaticanchose to communicate its first official position on Extraterrestrial disclosure by publishing an interview in the official Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano with Rev. Jose Gabriel Funes, the new Jesuit director of the Vatican Observatory on May 13, 2008, the 91st anniversary of the Fatimamiracle of May 13, 1917. The Vaticanpublication was in the mode of plausible deniability, and in no way formally indicated that this was an ex cathedra position of the Holy See. Funes’ interview stated that the existence of Extraterrestrials "doesn't contradict our faith" because aliens would still be God's creatures. Publication in the official Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano by the Scientist head of the Vatican Observatory functionally constitutes a formal step toward official disclosure of the ’s probable long-standing first-hand knowledge of an Extraterrestrial Presence. Such an interview and publication would have come after long concurrence within the Vatican on disclosure policy, necessarily concurred in by Pope Benedict XVI, and the Jesuit and the Vatican Intelligence Agencies.  Vatican
An earlier informal Exopolitical representative of the
Vatican, Mgsr Conrado Balducci attended the 2005 X -Conference in and gave a keynote speech with similar doctrinal highlights. L’Osservatore Romano’s May 13, 2008 publication of this doctrinal shift represents both (1) gradual Extraterrestrial Disclosure and (2) a shift in Vatican Theology to include Extraterrestrials as part of God’s creation. While Msgr. Balducci’s remarks and writings could plausibly be interpreted as his own private views, their publication in the official Vatican newspaper now make this doctrinal shift more of an official view. Mgsr Balducci has been embarked on a Vatican sanctioned media campaign, including 5 appearances on Italian national television, to state that Extraterrestrial contact is real, and that Extraterrestrials are not demons, as earlier fundamentalist interpretations posited (Balducci is a Vatican demonologist by background).  Washington DC
has a long history in Exopolitical Disclosure Management, going back at least 91 years if not many centuries. One key reported modern instance of the Vatican’s Disclosure management was that of Cardinal James Frances MacIntyre, bishop of Los Angeles 1948-1970 whom Pres. Dwight Eisenhower chose as a Cultural witness to his meeting with Nordic Extraterrestrial Ambassadors at Edwards Airforce Base in California on Feb. 20-21, 1954, and who immediately afterward flew to Rome to debrief the Vatican on Eisenhower’s meetings.  Vatican
chose May 13, 2008 – Fatima Day – to publish its first official doctrinal shift on the Extraterrestrial presence. May 13, 2008 is the 91st anniversary of May 13, 1917 Vatican Fatimamiracle in which a “Virgin Mary” figure reportedly appeared to 3 Portuguese children.
In the FATIMA TRILOGY by Joaquim Fernandes & Fina D’ Armada, Translated from Portuguese & Edited by Andrew D. Basiago (who is also Editor of Exopolitics: Politics, Government and Law in the Universe by this author) & Eva M. Thompson (Anomalist books), Portuguese scholars working from the original Fatima archives have established that the Fatima “miracle” was in fact an Extraterrestrial encounter. There are spinning saucers, small beings, falling angel hair, auditory and telepathic effects, all fitting the profile of an Extraterrestrial intervention. The
Fatimaencounter of May 13, 1917 appears to have been the first major UFO sighting of the 20th century!
Moreover, the authoritative scholarship of the Fatima Trilogy establishes that the
knew this at the time and consciously covered it up, promoting the myth of a Virgin Mary appearance in order to promote its own religious doctrinal fantasies and hypnotic power over its Roman Catholic believers. In the 1960s, the Fatima “miracle” was even promoted as an anti-communist message, and Pope Paul II placed the unsuccessful assassin’s bullet retrieved from his stomach in the crown of the Virgin Mary statue at the Vatican Fatimashrine.
Clearly, Exopolitical Disclosure Management may have volatile potential consequences for the
and the Roman Catholic Church, as its 91-year cover-up of a “Virgin Mary” manipulation of the Fatima Extraterrestrial intervention now threatens to come loose in the disclosure process. Hence, one can see why the Vatican in coordination with the Jesuits would have synchronistically chosen Fatima Day for a manipulative Disclosure Management statement. Vatican
