PRG Update - October 12, 2011

Disclosure Petition Update

As of this Update the Disclosure Petition has 9577 signatures.
That is 21st out of 188 petitions filed on the White House
website trending 11th out of 100 petitions with new signatures.
It is worth noting that six of the petitions with more
signatures address the same issue - reforming the marijuana
laws. Therefore, by issue the Disclosure petition is 16th out of
183. There has been further media coverage which is archived at
the DP info site.

On October 5th the White House announced the threshold for
petitions to be formally considered by the administration had
been raised from 5000 signatures in 30 days to 25,000. This
caused some concern. However, as stated on the White House site,
this increase is not retroactive to petitions filed before
October 5.

Regarding the response process the White House website states:
"Once the petition reaches the required threshold, it will be
put in a queue to be reviewed by the White House. Others can
still sign the petition while it is awaiting a response from the
White House. When the White House responds, everyone who has
signed the petition will get email from the White House to let
you know that we’ve reviewed and responded to the petition."

This means there will be more time to build the signature count
while the Disclosure Petition is being reviewed. The 5,000
threshold was critical to the review process, the overall count
is critical to the amount of media coverage.

All nations can sign this petition (the Zip Code field is
optional). A reachable goal is 20,000 signatures by the end of
October. Share the link via Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, YouTube,
email lists and websites.

World Disclosure Day Update


WDD now has 4689 endorsements from around the world. The next
likely developments will be a celebrity endorsement and
additional media coverage. WDD along with the DP offer two
referenda where anyone from any nation can sign their desire to
know the truth about the extraterrestrial presence engaging the
human race.

UFOs and the Evolution of Consciousness - Oct. 21-23



Richard Dolan, Whitley Strieber and Linda Moulton Howe will be
speaking at an event in New York City the weekend of October 21-

UFOs and the Evolution of Consciousness is sponsored by the New
York chapter of the Friends of the Institute of Noetic Sciences
(FIONS). IONS is an organization founded by Apollo 14 astronaut
Dr. Edgar Mitchell to study the bridge between science and
consciousness “noetics”. FIONS was co-founded by PRG's great
friend and supporter, the late Sandra Shepard (Sandy) Wright.

NASA and Dr. Edgar Mitchell (Commentary)



The National Aeronautics and Space Administration is one of the
more obvious victims of the truth embargo regarding an
extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race. Over the
years it has earned its aka "Never A Straight Answer," but it
had no choice in the matter. From the day it was born with the
1958 Space Act it was caught between a Moon rock and a hard
place because of the following language in the Act:

Section 102 b) The Congress declares that the general welfare
and security of the United States require that adequate
provision be made for aeronautical and space activities. The
Congress further declares that such activities shall be the
responsibility of, and shall be directed by, a civilian agency
exercising control over aeronautical and space activities
sponsored by the United States, except that activities peculiar
to or primarily associated with the development of weapons
systems, military operations, or the defense of the United
States (including the research and development necessary
to make effective provision for the defense of the United States)
shall be the responsibility of, and shall be directed by, the
Department of Defense...

NASA could have found a dozen extraterrestrial bases on the Moon
and it would have been unable to say anything, show anything,
take any actions without approval from the DOD - and it wasn't
going to get it. As the years went by and the evidence for an ET
presence grew NASA, when questioned, could only refuse to
comment, lie or deflect direct inquiries.

It is for this reason PRG has been generally sympathetic with
NASA's plight and has not focused its advocacy efforts on this
quasi civilian agency. The most irritating action by NASA since
1958 was its support of SETI, a science front organization
developed to help maintain the truth embargo and deflect
pressure from NASA and the government on the ET question - in
other words a science propaganda tool of the state. But again,
it likely had no choice.

I have said many times the truth embargo will make fools of us
all one way or another and this is the case with some NASA
knucklehead who, with or without the approval of the Director,
decided it would be a good idea to sue Dr. Edgar Mitchell over a
camera from the Apollo 14 Lunar Module returned to Earth by Dr.
Mitchell rather than be crashed into the Lunar surface.

Many such artifacts were retrieved by Apollo astronauts and no
other Apollo astronaut has ever been impugned in this way.

PRG is absolutely convinced this is an effort by NASA to
embarrass an American hero who has been speaking truth to power
since 1997 regarding the ET reality. In that he was following in
the footsteps of another American hero, Mercury astronaut Gordon

The American space program conducted between 1959 and 1972 was
perhaps the greatest achievement in human history. Every
Mercury, Gemini and Apollo astronaut well knew the extraordinary
opportunity NASA provided for them to be part of that history.
They have all been loyal to the agency. Gordon Cooper, Dr. Story
Musgrave, Dr. Brian O'Leary and Dr. Edgar Mitchell steadfastly
avoided criticizing NASA as they spoke of the ET issue and the
truth embargo over the past 25 years.

The 64-year truth embargo is in its final days and has been
slowly collapsing since 2000. Anyone in government who
mistakenly thinks this embargo continues to shield them when
taking outrageous actions against researchers, activists,
witnesses or contactees will be made the fool. That time has

Dr. Edgar Mitchell, a great American in his 81st year, should
not be treated in this manner. It is an absolute disgrace.

If you agree with this assessment, PRG would appreciate
your informing NASA of your views.
