What we're about

This is a meetup for people that are interested in learning more about and possibly being a part of a CE5 group as developed by Dr. Steven Greer. (CE5 stands for "Close encounters of the fifth kind" and describes ET contact initiated by humans). A CE5 group is a group of people ranging in size from 1or 2 to sometimes 50 or more that get together to carry out the CE5 protocols that Dr. Greer developed for the purpose of making friendly contact with and being ambassadors to our extraterrestrial visitors.

In order to get you up to speed quickly, if you haven’t already, we ask you to watch two very important documentaries.

The first, “The Cosmic Hoax–An Expose” which just came out, is very timely and addresses the recent coming out of military spokespersons in the news that the UFOs are indeed real and may be a threat. The documentary corrects the lie that the ETs are a threat and also shines a bright light on the military USAPs (Unacknowledged Special Access Projects) that would like to stage a false flag alien invasion upon the planet. Sound crazy? Watch the documentary. You can find a link to watch it (free) here: hagerling.com/ce5

Then you should also watch "Close Encounters of the Fifth Kind: Contact Has Begun". This amazing documentary is available on Amazon Prime. It can also be seen Tubi.com for free (or the Tubi app). I believe it is available on Itunes and Vimeo also. This documentary will go into the CE5 protocol process in more detail.

Also, if you would like to go ahead and learn the CE5 protocols you can download the, "CE5 Contact" app. It will cost you $10 I think, but it's worth it. A lot of work has gone into its' development and it guides you through the entire CE5 protocol.

Currently in this meetup group we are scheduling and getting together at CE5 events. It’s a very exciting time for us developing this initiative here in the Asheville area and we are attracting people from all around western North Carolina and beyond.

A Little About Me: I had always considered myself a “seeker of the Truth” and have found it throughout my life, as best I could, through various avenues. But up until the later part of 2019 I’d always been an "agnostic", if you will, concerning the subject of UFOs and extraterrestrial life. (Oh yes, it’s always been very alluring but nothing I was willing to label as Truth.)

Then something started to happen in the news late 2019. Many in the news were reporting about the admission by the military, finally, that the UFOs are real. There was also the subtle narrative that this UFO presence may turn out to be a threat (which I learned later to be untrue). There were many credible witnesses in the military and amazing video also. This definitely got my attention for the first time in a great many years.

But, for my sake, I’m glad I didn’t stop there. I thought to myself, “If this information is out there now, I wonder what else is available”? And so I started watching all the of-late documentaries on the subject I could find. A lot was the same old, same old with alien abductions etc, etc.

But a couple were not, and, in particular, the work of one, Dr. Steven Greer. This is where I finally got my eyes opened and could see the truth being revealed and fitting together for the first time instead of the usual fear, bewilderment and questions.

After this revelation, I spent the following week in an odd state of daze, trying to absorb this life changing information and what it would mean to myself and to the rest of the world. I concluded that basically I’d have to rethink my entire life.

Since that time, I have devoted a great deal of energy toward learning more about the work of Dr. Greer and what this all means. Recently, I had the awesome privilege on joining Dr. Greer at a week-long CE5 expedition out in the wilderness for more training.

In a quick nutshell, perhaps the most profound realizations for me have been:

1. The ETs are here. They are real... very, very real! This has been known by covert military programs and covered up since the 1940s at least. The secrecy about this has been above the secrecy of the hydrogen bomb. The evidence of this is now above mountainous and irrefutable. When you study this soon it becomes clear how they have been able to pull this off for so long and why. It’s time for this to end!!

2. There is NO evidence the ETs are a threat to us. However, there is plenty of evidence that they are very concerned about our behavior here on Earth. The present wave of UFO activity basically began when we started developing nuclear weapons in the 40s. Since then, they have been watching our nuclear warfare capabilities very closely even showing up and shutting down our missile silos here and, in the U.S.S.R., once or more times. The narrative that the ETs are a threat is basically promulgated by the military industrial complex. It is a very organized and pervasive effort to spread fear of the ETs through staged, alien abductions, scare promotion via Hollywood movies etc. All with the purpose of getting people to accept the idea that we need to build this powerful, military structure to fight an inevitable interplanetary war.

And why? ... Because of a much less exotic motivation, an earthly story we’ve heard over and over though out the ages.... the unbounded desire for financial profit and power.

3. Since they are here it’s unlikely that they just arrived in the 1940s. More than likely, they have been with us for a very long time. Which means many areas of life, history, archeology, philosophy, religious beliefs and so on will need to be reexamined.

4. We can interact with the ETs. In fact, they look forward to this and have been waiting for an appropriate response from us for a long time. Dr. Greer has been able to come up with the Rosetta Stone of contact with extraterrestrial civilizations. The implications are astronomical and will eventually bring us to a new world of unlimited clean energy, the end of war, the end of poverty, the end of racism and xenophobia and the ability to travel to the stars along with our ET friends.

What we need now is for people to get involved. That’s the thrust of this meetup group.

Please come join us in this exciting cosmic adventure!
