Today marks the 20th anniversary of exopolitics.org which was created on January 20, 2003, on Martin Luther King Day. The date was chosen to celebrate the life and mission of Martin Luther King who was a personal inspiration to me, and whose work had important similarities with the new research and life venture that I was embarking on with the creation of Exopolitics.org. Dr King confronted racial segregation that discriminated against people of color in the American South. In first being exposed to the reality of extraterrestrial life, and a massive cover up of supporting evidence I saw a similar struggle ahead to what had confronted Dr King in the civil rights arena – it would be segregation based, not on skin color, but, on privilege and access to advanced technologies reverse engineered from alien visitors and ancient civilizations.
After a 20-month period of researching the issues raised from my watching of Dr Steven Greer’s Disclosure Project Press Conference in May 2001, I decided to change my conventional research interests at American University where I had worked since 1996 as a peace and conflict resolution scholar. In writing my first exopolitics paper, “The Need for Exopolitics: Implications of the Extraterrestrial Conspiracy Theories for Policy Makers and Global Peace“, I naively thought it would be welcomed by my superiors at American University in Washington DC. How wrong I was. I was told not to associate the University with exopolitics in any way, and so could not publish my article on my Amerian University webpage, which I had created in 1996. This refusal directly led to the creation of Exopolitics.org . Continued opposition led to my eventual dismissal from American University in 2004.
Twenty years after the creation of the Exopolics.org website, I am encouraged by the increasing number of individuals that have become interested in exopolitics, and who have created exopolitical websites and organizations around the world. Nevertheless, the struggle is still massive and much work needs to be done to expose the extent of the cover-up of extraterrestrial life and reverse engineered technologies used in secret space programs. We continue to live in a globally segregated society where the vast majority of humanity struggle with basic energy, food and health issues on a daily basis, while a privileged minority have unfettered access to incredibly advanced technologies used in deep underground bases and off-planet facilities with zero transparency and accountability.
The individuals, institutions and processes that hide this truth from the American and world publics need to be exposed. Up until very recently, there were powerful public biases that individuals discussing UFOs and extraterrestrial life are on the fringe of society and needed to be shunned. That has begun to change with recent mainstream coverage of UFOs (aka UAPs) as a national security threat that culminated in the creation of the All Domain Anomaly Resolution Office on July 15, 2022, which is now delivering regular reports on UFOs/UAPs to the US Congress. Nevertheless, much work needs to be done as the extraterrestrial origins of many UFO/UAPs continues to be downplayed or shunned by mainstream media regardless of the evidence.
Instead, the mass media is consistently describing UFOs/UAPs as a national security threat that raises the specter of a false flag event being orchestrated that once again manipulates public opinion through deception and hides the truth that we live in a deeply segregated global society, which has profound quality of life implications for the general public.
All studying UFOs, extraterrestrial life and secret space programs are courageous individuals who have dedicated much of their time, and lives in many cases, to finding out the truth despite public dismissal and ridicule. While there will always be differences of opinion and methods among researchers, I admire all who have dedicated their time to UFO and exopolitical issues given the historical public biases against such interests. I especially appreciate those individuals that have supported my work in many ways and given me the courage to continue despite the determined opposition of public institutions and the mass media.
Exopolitics continues to personally inspire me and my research interests. Those visiting Exopolitics.org can view online for free the full scope of my 20 years of research – well over a thousand articles equivalent to ten books worth of material or over a million words. More recently, I have begun doing regular Exopolitics Today podcasts featuring interviews with many witnesses, contactees, and researchers that cast more light on the exopolitics phenomenon, which is far to big and complex for any one individual to have all the answers. My full archive of interviews going back to 2004 can be found on Exopolitics.org, again, all for free.
I look forward to what the next 20 years will bring to the field of exopolitics and to my own endeavors to learn the full truth. I am very thankful for the contributions of Alex Collier, Elena Danaan, JP, Wendelle Stevens, William Tompkins, Clifford Stone, Steven Greer, Paola Harris, and many others who have cast light on the complexity surrounding extraterrestrial life and secret space programs. I greatly appreciate the support of my webmaster Jas Marlin who also helps with the videography of my interviews. I am especially grateful to my inspired and talented wife, Angelika Whitecliff, who continues to support me in all my exopolitical endeavors through her editorial, artistic and videography skills.
Finally, I sincerely thank all that have had the courage to write, speak or commit themselves to investigating and informing others about evidence of visitors from other worlds coming to our small planet, and overcoming the segregated global society we live in that has been created by those controlling access to reverse engineered technologies from extraterrestrial or ancient civilizations. You continue to inspire me and give me cause for optimism over the tremendous opportunities that lie ahead for us individually and as a species as we boldly step forward to embrace the truth about our cosmic visitors and our Star Trek future.
