Grey Aliens and their Origins and their Agenda . cyberbid

Published on Sep 17, 2012

 

Richard D. Hall interviews Danielle Silverman & Professor John Biggerstaff about the work of Nigel Kerner who has written two great books on Grey Aliens.
In 1997 Nigel Kerner first introduced the notion of aliens known as Greys coming to Earth, explaining that Greys are sophisticated biological robots created by an extraterrestrial civilization they have long outlived. In this new book “Grey Aliens And The Harvesting Of Souls” Kerner reveals that the Greys are seeking to master death by obtaining something humans possess that they do not: souls. Through the manipulation of human DNA, these aliens hope to create their own souls and, thereby, escape the entropic grip of the material universe in favor of the timeless realm of spirit.
Kerner explains that genetic manipulation by the Greys has occured since biblical times and has led to numerous negative qualities that plague humanity, such as violence, greed, and maliciousness. Racism, he contends, was developed by the aliens to prevent their genetic experiments from being comprimised by breeding with others outside their influence. Examining historical records, Kerner shows that Jesus, who represented an uncorrupted genetic line, warned his disciples about the threat posed by these alien interlopers, while Hitler, a pure product of this alien intelligence, waged genocide in an attempt to rid Earth of all those untouched by this genetic tampering. Despite the powerful grip the Greys have on humanity, Kerner says that all hope is not lost. Greys exist wholly in the material world, so if we follow the spiritual laws of reincarnation and karma aiming for enlightenment and rising above the material–a state the Greys are unable to reach–we can free ourselves from their grasp.

About Joseph P. Farrell

Joseph P. Farrell has a doctorate in patristics from the University of Oxford, and pursues research in physics, alternative history and science, and “strange stuff”. His book The Giza DeathStar was published in the spring of 2002, and was his first venture into “alternative history and science”. Following a paradigm of researching the relationship between alternative history and science, Farrell has followed with a stunning series of books, each conceived to stand alone, but each also conceived in a pre-arranged sequence:

The Giza Death Star (2001)
The Giza Death Star Deployed (2003)
Reich of the Black Sun (2004)
The Giza Death Star Destroyed (2005)
The SS Brotherhood of the Bell (2006)
The Cosmic War (2007)
Secrets of the Unified Field (2008)
The Nazi International (2008)
The Philosophers’ Stone (2009)
Babylon’s Banksters (2010)
Roswell and the Reich (2010)
LBJ and the Conspiracy to Kill Kennedy (2010)
Genes, Giants, Monsters, and Men(2011)
The Grid of the Gods (2011)

Currently Farrell is working on three books, all due out later this year.

Anya Briggs: Leading UFO/ET researchers mind controlled by manipulative “Dow” Grey ETs at Johnsville Centrifuge, now spreading Grey ET disinformation

WATCH INTERVIEW ON YOU TUBE:

On June 20, 2013 at 6 pm Pacific, 7 pm Mountain, 8 pm Central, 9:00 pm Eastern, 1:00 AM GMT, ExopoliticsTV will broadcast THE NEWS LIVE Special with Anya Briggs and Alfred Lambremont Webre covering topics contained in over 60 minutes of video that was intentionally destroyed by outside intervention into the original video conversation above.

This NEWS LIVE Special can be accessed at: http://www.youtube.com/ExopoliticsTV and will be accessible immediately afterwards on archive at http://www.youtube.com/ExopoliticsTV

By Alfred Lambremont Webre, JD, MEd

VANCOUVER, BC – In a wide-ranging ExopoliticsTV interview, Anya Briggs, psychic medium, whistleblower, and granddaughter of Prof. Herbert W. Briggs (1900-1990) author of The Law of Nations, stated that leading UFO/ET researchers were mind controlled by manipulative “Dow” Grey extraterrestrials in secret bases located beneath the Johnsville Centrifuge in Bucks County, PA during a Bilderberger-type meeting held in November 2012 and are now spreading Grey ET disinformation.

The Johnsville Centrifuge was part of the Naval Air Warfare Center at Warminster, PA, which “played an important role in Project Mercury. Since Johnsville possessed the world’s largest centrifuge, capable of spinning a man to at least 16g, (42g max 19g/s onset) it was used for astronaut training. The centrifuge was later used for flight simulation where it could simulate 6 degrees of freedom with g loading.”[1]

Among the attending leading UFO/ET researchers (each of whom was reportedly required to sign a non-disclosure agreement) whom Ms. Briggs names as having been mind controlled by Grey ETs during the meeting are Kerry Cassidy of Project Camelot, Stephen Bassett of Citizen Hearing on Disclosure, and Dr. Steven Greer of the Disclosure Project.

Ms. Briggs states that the wife of one leading (unnamed) UFO/ET researcher who attended the meeting (the wife opted not to attend) contacted Ms. Briggs in a state of alarm. Ms. Briggs states, “She also told me that about six people had contacted her since this event happened and had mentioned with concern to her that her husband was behaving like he was on drugs but wasn’t on them. His wife told me he started acting that way after he got back from this event in Pennsylvania. Terms to describe his behavior used were ‘he seemed out of sorts’, ‘like he was on drugs’, ‘dreamy’ and ‘out of it’.”[2]
Citizen Hearing Witnesses Bassett and Greer demonstrate symptoms of brain-mind entrainment

On May 30, 2013, Exopolitics.com published a report[3] demonstrating, on the basis of forensic evidence contained in several videos, that “Upon investigation there is an emerging pattern of forensic evidence demonstrating anomalous eye movements among leaders in a faction of UFO/ET “Disclosure” advocates that bears serious further examination and that may be an indication of their witting or unwitting functional brain-mind entrainment by manipulatory extraterrestrials or advanced military-intelligence nanotechnology.

“Citizen Hearing witnesses Stephen Bassett, Antonio Huneeus and Dr. Steven Greer’s anomalous eye and body part movements may indicate brain-mind entrainment by manipulatory extraterrestrials or advanced military-intelligence nanotechnology as part of a global control agenda.

“Major UFO/ET ‘Disclosure’ advocates demonstrating these anomalous eye movements include the Citizen Hearing director/organizer, Stephen Bassett, and two leading witnesses, Antonio Huneeus of OpenMindsTV, and Dr. Steven Greer of the Disclosure Project, all of whom presented testimony before six former members of the U.S. Congress at the recent Citizen Hearing on Disclosure held April 29-May 3, 2013 at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, each seeking a policy of self-disclosure by the U.S. government of an “extraterrestrial presence” without any informed consent from the citizenry, such as a national referendum.

Both Stephen Bassett and Dr. Steven Greer reportedly attended the November 2012 Johnsville Centrifuge meeting. Both Messrs. Bassett and Greer, according to Ms. Briggs, were unwittingly mind controlled during the event in the Dow Grey ET base under the Johnsville Centrifuge.

Exopolitics.com corroboration of Johnsville Centrifuge Bilderberger-type meeting

Exopolitics.com has documentary evidence that such a meeting was planned at the Johnsville Centrifuge for November 2012, as set out in the documents at the following:[4]

Documentation supporting secretive meeting of leading UFO/ET researchers at Johnsville Centrifuge, Bucks County, PA in November 2012

http://exopolitics.blogs.com/exopolitics/2013/06/documentation-supporting-secretive-meeting-of-leading-ufoet-researchers-at-johnsville-centrifuge-buc.html

On July 13, 2012, this reporter Alfred Lambremont Webre was invited to the Johnsville Centrifuge event (see documentation). On July 17, 2013, this reporter spoke by telephone with the person identified as the host of the meeting, Larry Frascella. Mr. Frascella indicated that he had made a great deal of money in the “sub prime mortgage business” and that he intended to invite the Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff to the meeting.

In the course of due diligence following this phone conversation, this reporter discovered that Larry Frascella and his twin brother David owned “Frascella Enterprises, Inc. doing business as CashToday was a payday lending business. In December, 2005, a class of consumers brought claims in the Court of Common Pleas of Philadelphia County against Frascella Enterprises and its principals, David and Larry Frascella, alleging violations of state usury and consumer protection laws.”

http://exopolitics.blogs.com/files/frascella.08d1089p.pdf

On July 30, 2012, this reporter received an email from Larry Frascella stating, “Regretfully, it has come to my attention that, due to unforeseen issues, I find myself in the position that I have to hereby rescind your invitation to the event in November.”

Elon Musk, founder of Space X and Co-founder of Tesla Motors and Paypal?

Anya Briggs, who was a “Plus 1 Standby” to the Johnsville Centrifuge meeting and who did not attend the meeting, received information early in November 2012 that the true, behind the scenes host of the meeting may have been Elon Musk, founder of Space X and Co-founder of Tesla Motors and PayPal, although information about Elon Musk’s involvement has yet to be confirmed.

The “Dow” Grey ETs

With regard to the “Dow” Grey ETs that reportedly have an underground base in the area underneath the Johnsville Centrifuge, Anya Briggs states, “The Dow are not necessarily programmed life forms either like most typical Grey beings sent to poke and prod people in abductions. No, no, this group had the misfortune of being fully alive and owned by their genetic code in a way that most Greys don’t have the “privilege” of owning.

“The trouble with this group owning their own code, however is this: they’re kind of insane. This is the same group of Grey aliens who hover over the Robert Bigelow-of-Bigelow Aerospace-owned Skinwalker Ranch in Utah and do the cow mutilations and whatever else experiments to tamper with the Dow’s genetic code to keep them from dying out (Which they are.)
“But the problem with this is, in order to sample and test and experiment with saving their race, they have for whatever reason decided to hover over that area of the country in two timelines at the same time. And due to the temporal dynamics of that unique situation, it’s making them nuts.

“The decision-making capabilities of this group of “people” as my guides are calling them are uniquely formed to make decisions with the human race without the humans knowing about it.

“The Dow are running scared now, however, because of plots to destroy the nefarious nature of years of negative influence and mind control they’ve enacted on the populace and that information is running down/breaking down for lack of a better term. The tech is broken and the machine is showing its cracks.

“Hence this 11th hour freak-out in Pennsylvania in an attempt at dominion over part of the UFO research community that influences thought and opinion for millions if not billions around the world who are interested in this sort of thing.

“It’s primarily the Dow Greys intentions in this regard to keep people owned and they don’t like what I’m doing by posting this, but whatever. It’s not like we’re going to hug it out and go to brunch afterwards.

“They were (some of) the original progenitors of Mars is what I am getting, ladies and gentlemen. They have utilized their abilities of mind control and genetic manipulation to partially seed the population of the planet, and over time, most of the people of Mars look very much in size and shape and proportion like we do due to mixing of races — and of breeds — from all over the galaxy. People on Mars are a dime a dozen, and not all of them are humanoid, if you dig me.

“I would refer you to the recent photographs [former U.S. chrononaut] William Stillings has posted (but I haven’t obtained permission to post here yet) for some interesting images coming from the Mars Rover Curiosity lately that either he or someone else has added colorization to and the results are stunning.

“There’s at least one image of a cluster of very, very human looking people on the surface of Mars looking at the Rover with curious smiles on all their faces.

“Not the least connective tissue to this of all is because the man [Elon Musk] who hosted this event in Pennsylvania is widely known for being openly interested (obsessed is really more the accurate term here) with the concept of Mars colonization.”[5]

List of Attendees at Johnsville Centrifuge meeting

Anya Briggs has compiled a list of leading UFO/ET researchers who attended the Johnsville Centrifuge meeting.

Ms. Briggs writes, “This is by no means a complete list. I am going by memory of what the researchers who I was in touch with told me who would be there and from text messages I received by one of the researchers while he was at the event.

“Without any further ado, the names of the attendees I can 100% say attended:

Micah Hanks

Anthony F. Sanchez

Richard Dolan

Scotty Roberts

Dr. Steven Greer

Stephen Bassett

Kerry Cassidy

Miriam Delicado

Chip Coffey

George Noory

UPDATE, MAY 25TH, 2013:

A reliable source just provided me with several more names of attendees who definitely,

100% attended:

Leo Sprinkle

Mel Fabregas

Stanton Friedman

James Fox

Kim Carlsberg

UPDATE, JUNE 5TH, 2013:

Col. John Alexander

“Obviously, if you are a researcher who did NOT attend this event and want me to remove your name, by all means tell me and I will be happy to do so. I am going off of memory and text messages from over six months ago, so obviously the list of possible attendees is vague at best. But I am 100% certain that the list of attendees who I know definitely attended is correct.

“I waited this long to say something because I wanted to give everyone in attendance the benefit of the doubt to speak up about it if there was a way to do so.”[6]

Scripture is Prophecy recorded in writing … at the time. It changes.

Religion is the service to Prophecy which other telepaths perform in order to become competent and Eternal souls.

Manimal Rights

May 23, 2013

http://www.slate.com/articles/health_and_science/superman/2013/05/human_animal_hybrids_chimeras_with_mice_pigs_and_goats.html

Attention, sane and insane scientists: Your experiments to create half-men, half-beasts may not be legal in every jurisdiction. The construction of such hybrid life forms is now prohibited in several Sun Belt states, including Arizona and Louisiana, and Mississippi lawmakers have introduced a bill to do the same.

These regulations have become a hobby-horse of the religious right, and so an endless source of mirth for science-minded lefties who think they have the better grasp of biotechnology. “Mississippi Bill Would Ban Manimals, Mermen, and Minotaurs,” according to a blogger at Mother Jones. Republicans are scared of “some sort of human-brained lion with bear paws,” said a writer at Daily Kos, “because scientists are this close to doing that just for the flying hell of it.”

This knee-jerk sarcasm is no less embarrassing today than it was in 2006, when progressives piled on President Bush for mentioning “human-animal hybrids,” among other “egregious abuses of medical research,” at the back-end of a State of the Union address. Jon Stewart called that digression a “brief stop in Crazytown;” BoingBoing mocked him with a T-shirt.

For all the hee-haws, though, this Republican agenda item speaks to something very real in bioscience. Human cells or DNA are planted into laboratory animals as a matter of routine, and nonhuman parts end up in people, too. Both forms of interspecies mixing—from us to them, and them to us—hold tremendous opportunities for therapy and could lead one day to biological enhancement. But they also bring to light some important moral quandaries.

The word hybrid, in the scientific sense, describes an organism that carries DNA from different species in each of its cells. Human-animal combos of this kind have indeed been created by several different labs—though only at the very early stages of development, and never in the hopes of making full-grown, crossbred monsters. For an old-fashioned test for male fertility, doctors would try to fertilize a set of hamster eggs with a patient’s sperm. (If they succeeded, the hybrids would be destroyed.) More recently, British scientists implanted cow eggs with nucleic acids drawn from human skin as a means of growing human stem cells in a dish. (The constructs would never progress beyond this point.)

True hybrids may be rare, but lab-made chimeras, in which cells from two strains or species coexist in a single organism, are utterly ubiquitous. To engineer the genome of a mouse—the starting point for many biomedical experiments—scientists must generate a chimeric blend of different breeds.

Human-mouse chimeras are somewhat common, too. Since the early 1990s, researchers have been replacing mouse liver cells with human equivalents. These lab-created organisms might provide for more effective drug-testing, as the rodents’ “humanized” livers can metabolize a medicine in a way that’s more like ours. (For the moment, this utility is more theoretical than practical: No one has yet proven that human-mouse chimeras actually improve toxicology testing.)

Mice with human livers are just the start. “It’s all about humanized right now,” said the CEO of one of the leading mouse breeders in the world when I visited his facility in 2011. Not long ago, Chinese scientists embedded genes for human milk proteins into a mouse’s genome and have since created herds of humanized-milk-producing goats. Meanwhile, researchers at the University of Michigan have a method for putting a human anal sphincter into a mouse as a means of finding better treatments for fecal incontinence, and doctors are building animals with humanized immune systems to serve as subjects for new HIV vaccines.

The hybrid-haters in the GOP understand the value of these experiments, and they’ve taken pains to separate the useful from the creepy. The laws passed in Arizona and Louisiana, like the federal bill that ex-Rep. Sam Brownback tried and failed to pass in Congress, attempt to provide some nuance. They say it’s fine to make transgenic animals laced with human genes, and generally OK to build chimeric animals with implanted human organs, tissues, or cells. Even in the states where manimals and minotaurs are banned, scientists can humanize a mouse by giving it a person’s liver or immune system.

But the regulations try to draw the line at full hybrids—where animal eggs are fertilized with human sperm or vice-versa. And they also ban the use of chimeric animals with human brains. These aren’t right-wing talking points so much as common ethical intuitions. It’s OK to mess with a creature’s “simple” parts—the plumbing in its gut, let’s say—but we’re risking moral crisis when we start to humanize its neural tissue.

Nonpartisan expert commissions have reached the same conclusion. After two years studying the issue, the British Academy of Medical Sciences released a report in 2011 that found people would be uneasy over interspecies mergers that looked or acted human or had a human-like brain
