I am continuing my reading on the subject of "Exopolitics." As I mentioned in previous posts, Stephen Bassett will be in Australia speaking at the "Nexus" conference, so I thought he should be my next piece of research.
I went to http://www.paradigmresearch group.org which is Bassett's main website (click here).
I found there, that Stephen Bassett spent 15 years, between 1980-1995, in the field of business development and consulting. He has a degree in physics.
In 1995 he spent five months working at the Program for Extraordinary Experience research (PEER.) PEER was founded by the late Dr John Mack (click here for more on PEER.)
The following year, 1996, he established the Paradigm Research Group (PRG) and registered himself as a lobbyist.
In 1997, he attended the Steven Greer/CSETI press and congressional briefings in Washington. That same year, he assisted a Phoenix, Arizona Councilwoman, Frances Barwood respond to critics of her speaking out about the Phoenix Lights (click here). Also, that year, he became involved in the issue surrounding lawsuits taken out by former employees of Area 51.
Two years later, in 1999, in collaboration with MUFON, he became involved with a UFO State Ballot initiative. Also in 1999, Bassett founded the Extraterrestrial Phenomena Political Action Committee (click here).
In 2001, the PRG assisted with the Disclosure Press Conference held on 9 May 2001.
2002 saw Bassett announce his Maryland 8th District Congressional campaign.
Between 2004 and 2008 he was busy organising X-conferences (click here for more) , discussing his interests and bringing in other speakers.
In 2008 the "Million fax on Washington" campaign was aimed at the transitional HQ of the new president elect.
2010 sees the latest X-conference (click here.)
