Status: PRG Political Initiative

There is only one outcome to the congressional/political initiative currently underway that would constitute success – Disclosure. By that measure the truth advocacy movement has not yet achieved its goal. So we press on. There has been progress. Here is what has been accomplished in 2015.

Via email, fax and 2.5 million Twitter messages, every congressional office, the presidential candidates and 400 reporters, editors and producers have been made aware of the need for new hearings on the extraterrestrial presence issue. The 180+ members of the six targeted congressional committees have received information regarding the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure and much more. All have received requests to meet with PRG, and meetings have taken place with both House and Senate staff.

Congressional offices and political media have also been made aware of two important areas of testimony – nuclear weapons tampering and the Rockefeller Initiative.*

The Disclosure movement has received unprecedented political coverage. PRG has done over 80 media interviews in 2015. The Rockefeller Initiative was appropriately covered and finally referred to by name by the political media twenty-two years after it began. First to do this was Jennifer Harper, Washington Times on February 15. This was followed by Eric Pfieffer, on February 17; Warren Rojas, Roll Call on February 23; A. J. Vicens, Mother Jones on April 3; Robin Seemangal, New York Observer on September 16; and Ben Terris, Washington Post on December 11.

Of particular note is Secretary Clinton, John Podesta, Governor Bill Richardson and others have been queried by reporters regarding the Rockefeller Initiative for the first time. In all cases they have refused to respond. Reporters don’t like that.

The ongoing political initiative, coupled with the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure has triggered a complex and sometimes bizarre dialogue by other means with the Clinton campaign, including President Obama. Twitter messages by Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and questions asked during appearances on late night talk shows by Presidents Clinton and Obama are difficult to explain outside the context of internal concern and awareness of the political engagement underway.

All of which is to say that even amidst the media focus on terrorism at home and abroad and the seemingly endless presidential campaign, the Disclosure advocacy movement has gotten the attention of the “powers that be.”

And the first presidential primary is still seven weeks away.

First on PRG’s agenda for 2016 is meeting with and delivering paper sets of the Rockefeller Initiative documents to the six congressional committees and securing interviews on network/cable news venues.
