"Our Republic and its press will rise or fall together. An able, disinterested, public-spirited press, with trained intelligence to know the right and courage to do it, can preserve that public virtue without which popular government is a sham and a mockery. A cynical, mercenary, demagogic press will produce in time a people as base as itself. The power to mould the future of the Republic will be in the hands of the journalists of future generations."    Joseph Pulitzer

The Win-Win-Win-Win Way Out
            President Trump              Disclosure                     Paradigm Shift 

Disclosure is the formal acknowledgement by heads of state of nations of an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race. The exopolitical activism that is the Disclosure advocacy movement is serious business. The stakes are very high, and failure to achieve Disclosure in a timely fashion could be catastrophic for all nations and peoples. 

It is clear to PRG the political chaos enveloping the United States is now an existential threat to the Republic and a major impediment to the Disclosure process. There is one way out of this chaos that is a win-win-win-win for the principals, the nation and the Disclosure advocacy movement. PRG sees no other option. It is as follows:

1) President Trump in consultation with the political leaders of the Republican Party agrees to resign his office as soon as possible for health reasons. This is a win for the President. Why? If he does not resign, he is going to be destroyed in the coming political and legal firestorm, his brand will be destroyed, he could face multiple bankruptcies, his children's future could be damaged, he and members of this family could face prison terms barring presidential pardons.

2) Vice President Pence in consultation with the political leaders of the Republican Party agrees in advance to step down from the office of president once the House of Representatives elects a new vice president. This is a win for Pence. Why? If he agrees, he will be lauded for putting country ahead of person. He is also at risk at being destroyed in the coming political firestorm. He will leave with minimum damage to his political future and legacy. He will likely have considerable support from the Republican National Committee for any future political endeavors.

3) The House of Representatives elects a vice president in bi-partisan fashion. A best case example would be someone acceptable to a majority of Republicans and a majority of Democrats. This is a win for the House. Why? It will be immediately seen by the American people as a major step in ending the partisan political war that has brought the United States to a near standstill and undermined prospects for world peace and stability.

4) After President Pence steps down and the House elected vice president takes over the office of president, the House of Representatives elects a new vice president in bi-partisan fashion as before. This is another win for the House.
This scenario, of course, is a win for the nation.

It is also a win for the Disclosure advocacy movement. Why? There is a growing number of persons within the military/intelligence complex and elsewhere in government who want the truth embargo ended. This is also the case in other nations. That said, they are not going to cooperate or work from the inside when the United States is in the throes of political chaos.

It should be stated this proffered option only brings about "regular order" and creates a stable platform upon which to stand and conduct the business of the nation. It does not represent the paradigm shift needed to address the inevitable global consequences of one hundred years of growing systemic institutional dysfunction, war, population growth and failure to confront the challenges to the human condition and the biosphere.

Only Disclosure can bring about a paradigm shift of that magnitude. The sooner we get beyond this foolishness and press for that Disclosure the sooner the win for us all.

[Note: If the House of Representatives is wise, the new executive leaders will include a woman and/or a person of color.]

Stephen Bassett is the executive director of Paradigm Research Group (PRG) founded in 1996 to end a government imposed embargo on the truth behind extraterrestrial related phenomena. He has spoken to audiences around the world about the implications of formal "Disclosure" by world governments of an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race and given over 1000 radio and television interviews. PRG's advocacy work has been extensively covered by national and international media. In 2013 PRG produced a "Citizen Hearing on Disclosure" at the National Press Club in Washington. In November of 2014 PRG launched two political initiatives in Washington, DC. One sought the first hearings on Capitol Hill since 1968 regarding the extraterrestrial presence issue. The other sought to force the ET issue into the 2016 presidential campaign. Going forward from the U.S. election outcome PRG will now also operate under the DBA PRG International, and Stephen will be seeking lectures, government contacts and funding around the world.
Stephen has appeared in many documentary films and his lectures and interviews are extensively represented on YouTube.
