Extraordinary Top Story
Seems the world has UFO mania these days. Especially in recent months, a series of unusual happenings have led some to believe that a major announcement or event is on the not too distant horizon. I’ve already mentioned two of the most recent bits of breaking news here on E.I. The first was the announcement that TOMORROW a group of retired Air Force officers will be holding a press conference to disclose their evidence and stories of UFOs and U.S. nuclear sites. That article can be found here:
Just breaking today, we have the announcement that the United Nations will be appointing an official Ambassador for First Contact if/when it happens. That article can be read here:
Other events that have raised the eyebrows of those paying attention are the strange blue spiral that appeared over Norway which was officially sort of explained as a misfired Russian rocket, while others believe it may have had more to do with H.A.A.R.P. (High Frequency Active Auroral Research). It is speculated by some that this may have even been an event to test our reaction to a mass sighting of something unexplained in the sky. Similar spirals have been seen over China and Russia.
Television has been hinting at an increased interest in alien encounters. First there’s the ABC series “V”, which features a cruel E.I. presence that hides behind a benevolent face. Then we have the peculiar event of… well… “The Event”. The new NBC series that appears to be hinting at some sort of disclosure of the UFO variety. In the first episode, we see a series of connected story lines that eventually culminate in a plane that was moments away from crashing into a party where the U.S. President was in attendance, being intercepted by some sort of light in the sky. Is this another way to ease the concept of First Contact into our collective Psyche? I guess we’ll see. Read more about the theory here: Is ‘The Event’ Actually A Disclosure?

From Medjugorje.org: Messages from Mary in Medjugorje. Since 1981, the Blessed Virgin has been appearing to six people in Medjugorje, Bosnia-Hercegovina. I was fascinated to see that her most recent message was just yesterday. Why is this relevant news? IDK. I think it just amused me that the Virgin actually ended yesterday’s message with, “Thank you for having responded to my call.” I can just imagine this nasally operator voice…. oh never mind.
