Stephen Bassett has a plan, and boy did he present it emphatically at last weekend’s StarworksUSA UFO conference in Laughlin, Nevada.
One slide in his presentation said it all:
Disclosure: February 2015?
Whoa! Say what? After the murmur in the room subsided, Stephen Bassett brought the audience up to speed with the activities underway that are leading to this reality.
3 moves to disclosure
Before outlining his three moves, Bassett talked about the awareness that led to this point in time, including the release of the COMETA Report in 2000 (which encouraged the release of government documents about UFOs from 16 countries over the last 14 years), Steven Greer’s Disclosure Project press conference at the National Press Club in May 2001 (which lost its momentum a few months later after 9/11), astronaut Edgar Mitchell’s testimony and former Canadian defense minister Paul Hellyer’s admissions, among others. The path was indeed prepared for Bassett’s most recent efforts, which he believes will lead to the end of the truth embargo within the next few months.
Accelerating this possibility is an unprecedented level of awareness and acceptance, which Bassett emphasized with these insights:
- 20 percent of the global population
believes aliens live among us.
- 80 percent of US citizens believe
the government is not telling the truth.
- 2 percent of the population
has experienced contact.
Think about that last one for a minute. In the U.S. alone, that’s 1.6 million people. Expand that globally, and we’re talking about 70 million citizens who are contactees. That’s an awful lot of tinfoil hats, wouldn’t you say?
The proverbial skids have been greased, so what happens next or is already happening to lead to disclosure? That’s when Steven Bassett unveiled the three-move win — two of which have already occurred and the third is underway.
Move #1: The Petition
At first, Stephen Bassett expressed significant disappointment to the White House’s response to two separate petitions, with a combined 17,465 signatures, requesting acknowledgement of disclosure.
You can read the entire White House response here, but Bassett specifically refers to this statement:
“The U.S. government has no evidence that any life exists outside our planet, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engaged any member of the human race. In addition, there is no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the public’s eye.”
“The response is a lie,” said Bassett. “They could have said, ‘ETs are here, but we’ll have to get back to you.’ Instead, they delivered an absolute lie. An indefensible lie.”
He stated more than 60 years of science and evidence easily refutes that statement, and he pondered for a moment that it was idiotic to even say as much. The White House could have avoided using language like “no evidence” or “no credible information” but they went there. And that’s where Bassett thinks maybe, just maybe, it was intentional.
He even went so far as to say it was “genius” if, indeed, it was intentional, suggesting it was a “gift to the disclosure community” that would help accelerate demand for a congressional hearing. “It was either really stupid or really smart,” he concluded.
Move #2: Citizens Hearing
“Nothing I have been involved in my entire life has come close to receiving the response this event has received,” said Bassett.
The Citizen Hearing for Disclosure, a mock hearing held in Washington, D.C., April 29-May 3, 2013, was conducted with six former members of Congress and yielded more than 30 hours of testimony from 40 witnesses.
“It was truly amazing because the panel of representatives we hired had no idea what was coming,” said, Chase Kloetzky, a full-time ufology field investigator who accompanied Bassett to the hearing. “When we started, every panel member was expressionless, expecting to hear a few stories from a handful of people. By the end of the first day, they were fully engaged, expressing disbelief and outraged that this information was not getting the attention it deserved from the government. By the end of the week, they clearly understood the importance of our mission. I was honored to be there.”
After the hearings, which were streamed live on the web, Bassett was inundated with messages of support from all over the world.
“We’ve made progress globally,” he said, “but no comment from our government. … Yet.”
Which brings us to Bassett’s anticipated checkmate move …
Move #3: Congressional
This masterful move would make Bobby Fischer, Boris Spassky and even Deep Blue proud. The Citizen Hearing was the setup move, and now Stephen Bassett is going in for the kill move — the Congressional Hearing Initiative — which is a three-act process in itself.
First Act: #disclosure tweet storm. The Citizen Hearing on Disclosure DVD set was mailed to all 538 members of Congress on Nov. 5, and Bassett expected the DVDs would begin arriving on desks this week.
And now — right now — is the time for a tweet storm. Bassett created the website www.faxonwashington.org to instruct the masses how to deliver an onslaught of social media messages to Congress, encouraging members to take the Citizen Hearing seriously and escalate the need for a congressional hearing.
The website gives detailed instructions on how to engage Congress and includes suggested messages to drive home these three points:
- Review the record on the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure.
- Meet with Stephen Bassett to discuss the Citizen Hearing.
- Hold the hearing immediately so scores of military/agency/political witnesses can testify under oath confirming an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race.
“Now is the time,” said Bassett on Saturday. “#disclosure is currently trending at 2,000 tweets per hour, and we’d like to see that get up to 10,000 within the next two weeks.”
If the people engage, the social media outreach will get members of Congress talking with staff throughout December, setting up the next step.
Second Act: Meetings in Washington. Stephen Bassett will be spending January on Capitol Hill, meeting with every member of Congress he can.
“The social media storm will open doors,” said Bassett, “and we’ll be there to walk through them.”
Bassett explained that the president will be the one who announces disclosure, but he doesn’t think we have to wait until after a congressional hearing for that to happen.
“This strategy is not about Congress, it’s not about the hearing and it’s not about the president ” said Bassett. “It’s about the press. It has always been about the press.”
Third Act: Media frenzy. According to Bassett, the social media campaign is so important because it sets up the meetings in January, and if the meetings are plentiful, there’s a chance the media will catch wind of a potential congressional hearing on disclosure.
“Once the media hears about this, they will respond,” said Bassett. “Every agency in D.C. has a spokesperson, and they all will be grilled about a possible hearing. When that happens, game over.”
Bassett explained that no agency will want to answer these questions daily, which will amplify the asking of even more questions, which eventually will force President Obama to meet with the Pentagon to discuss a post-disclosure plan that protects US national security.
“That’s when President Obama will walk to the podium and deliver the news,” said Bassett. “The truth embargo will end in February.”
Stephen Bassett’s convictions were obvious throughout the conference — during his presentation, when he was on a panel and when he was talking to attendees in the hallways. He repeated over and over “now is the time” and his expectations are extremely high that citizens will visit www.faxonwashington.org and do their part in driving disclosure.
The time is now, and you can play a role in ensuring disclosure occurs in February 2015.
