Kerry Cassidy Discusses Whistleblower Testimony and Discernment -- Things to Consider in the Age of Deception

Image Source.

(Stillness in the Storm Editor) The discussion about whistleblowers, if they can be trusted, and how to discern their testimony, is crucial to consider. In the age of deception, learning to discern the truth properly is a survival skill. But how does one do this? Can all whistleblowers be trusted? These are questions we can benefit from considering, because not all testimony is valid or accurate.


Kerry Cassidy is one of the founders of Project Camelot, along with Bill Ryan, who developed his own discussion venue called Project Avalon. What follows is Cassidy's contribution to the whistleblower discussion, framed within another discussion about a secret space program insider and whistleblower named Corey Goode.

While that situation has been well-discussed in previous articles on this site, the following focus regards whistleblowers in general. Cassidy speaks a bit about the situation with Corey Goode and you can read his responses to her statements, and Ryan's, below.

These are some of the points I want to highlight for your consideration.
  • Whistleblowers are, in my view, in a world of lies and secrecy, our lifeline to what is really going on. And many whistleblowers (who are very human with human idiosyncrasies and failings) are risking their lives and many have been killed for their attempts to get the truth to humanity. .... Others have had family members die mysteriously or suddenly and the list goes on. Whistleblowing is clearly not good for your health. But it is vital.
  • To attack an [sic] unreliable whistleblower testimony is the same thing as attacking all HUMAN testimony. Yes humans can be manipulated and deceived and have diabolical aims but they can also be dedicated and truthful and sacrifice their own lives for their fellow man (or woman). Making a blanket statement about “whistleblower” testimony is no more meaningful than to say all politicians lie and all judges and juries are deluded and misled.
  • Whistleblowers are like those in any other walk of life. Some are truthful and some are not. Some believe what they tell people and some lie with impunity.
  • As an investigative journalist, documentary filmmaker specializing in whistleblower testimony for over 11 years I can say that there are many ways to tell if a person is lying. Investigating their claims is one of them. Cross-correlating testimony is another. Facial reads and behavioral “tells” often reveal an attempt to deceive consciously. Or unconsciously. And so on… My point is that it is up to us to do the work necessary to tell truth from falsity.
  • It is part of the Controllers agenda to get humans to see each other as the enemy first!
  • Documents are notoriously unreliable. We all know that documentation can be faked... I often find it interesting and puzzling that humans will believe a piece of paper or a film or the TV but suspect another human as lying when humans are the ones creating the film and documents in the first place!
  • College or university educations, degrees and so-called authority figures are all suspect and no guarantee you are getting the truth. Titles and large salaries are no proof of anything other...
  • My point is that we humans have been taught to first believe outside authorities, documents, organizations and people with money and in the top echelons of power before we believe each other. 
  • I do however think it is important for people to weigh the evidence and quality of the testimony we are given and use our hearts and minds to see what resonates and what does not.
  • And as I have said many times, the truth is not served in this reality anyway, on a silver platter. It is up to us to learn to exercise discernment as we journey on our path.
Some of her points echo the ones I presented in the two articles written about Bill Ryan's claims against Corey Goode, here and here.

In short, her statement about whistleblower testimony being highly suspect is something to think about.

Within ufology, and other fields, some researchers formulate vetting methods, like document verification, cross-correlation, and the like, and then rubber stamp the testimony as "vetted." For the reader, this implies that they should believe what is said. But this is misleading because, as Cassidy just mentioned, almost all methods of vetting can be corrupted, and ultimately, absolute certainty only exists when one has absolute knowledge and awareness. Since all people have limited knowledge and awareness, their conclusions and verification methods, can't be regarded as foolproof.  



So what can we do if we can't trust documentation, corroborating testimony, and video or photographic evidence?

It's not that we should completely throw out the above-mentioned forms of evidence, it just means  we need to think more critically about them. Most importantly, we need to learn how to discern and verify things for ourselves, only resting on expert opinion when needed. It's all to easy to reach for a quick answer, to blindly trust a source we feel is credible, but detailed discernment takes precision and patience—it takes personal investment to study and really understand.

What Cassidy said here strikes is most appropriate: "It is up to us to learn to exercise discernment as we journey on our path." What did she mean by this? I can't say for sure, but I can say that all forms of discernment are not created equal.

For example, documentation helps verify a whistleblower's personal history, or that a topic they describe has been confirmed by an official source. If a person claimed they worked for Douglas Aircraft and produces time cards and payroll receipts as proof, this would be evidence that directly confirms their story. But even these records can be fabricated; therefore, doubt can't be completely ruled out.

In short, one must understand the context or scope of a claim and use evidence within that arena to confirm what is asserted. If someone claims to have had a fantastic ET encounter, documentation proving other aspects of their story won't be valid—direct evidence that falls within the scope of their claim is required. If someone claims

Of course, in many fields of research, evidence is woefully lacking, if it exists at all. What this means for us, those individuals reviewing this testimony, is that we need to be honest in how we discern. We may be tempted to believe one claim or another for various reasons, but understanding how arrived at our conclusions and beliefs is essential. If the only thing we're resting our beliefs on is a person's credibility, then we don't really know why or how a thing is true, we just hope the person is telling the truth.

There are various camps in the truth movement all of whom are asserting that their version of events is the right one. Instead of looking to believe one over another, we can learn how to discern all the data without fear. And in the process, producing an understanding of the big picture that helps us easily recognize falseness. Potentially this is what Cassidy is suggesting with her final comments. 

I thinks these points are important to keep in mind because the nuts and bolts of truth seeking is rarely, if ever get discussed.

Bill and forum members,

I have read Bill's statement regarding Corey Goode and some of the problems with his testimony and dealings with others that seem to indicate that he has not been honest with the public and that his story may also be at least partially fabricated or simply an implanted memory. I don’t see any point in attacking him however and will not do so.

[Goode disagree's with her version of events, as detailed here:

Goode: I told Kerry Cassidy repeatedly that I would only provide information anonymously. After it was clear I would not do an interview she posted my name on her website and several times in one of her YouTube videos. She then refused to remove my name from both locations. I was in a panic for the safety of my family and my career. Finally, I was forced to send all of the Skype and Email conversations to YouTube/Google's complaint department. She was receiving her third strike with YouTube (Which would close her channel) and emailed me asking me to remove my complaint agreeing to remove my name from her website and video. I removed the complaint and we have kept this out of the public until now. All of this is documented.

I have all of the documentation to backup the fact that I was outed on Project Camelot by Kerry's "executive decision." Not only did this put my family in extreme danger, but then made it almost impossible for me to be hired in the IT field.]

I am not going to go into the interactions I have had with Corey in the very early days (a few years ago) when he contacted me asking if I would interview him. But I will say that while Bill Ryan has every right to make public his own views and research about Corey and his claims, he does not have the right to make statements on my behalf and without my permission about what he assumes I think or what I have told him in confidence.



There are many people in this sector who are highly suspect and many people who are telling the truth as they see it and still many more with implanted or false memories. There are people who are playing to the audience and lying outright with full knowledge that they are doing so. There are agents, assets who are in essence working for intelligence agents and paid trolls as well as unbalanced and unprincipled people as well.

Some whistleblowers may be telling the truth and others, motivated by a myriad of human failings, may be lying or combining the two in order to save their own lives and still get the truth out. While I am sorry that Rich Dolan and Bill Ryan find whistleblowers to be ‘unreliable’ and that Farrell and Fitts prefer “research and documentation” I have to say that this in no way addresses the true value of whistleblower testimony.

Whistleblowers are, in my view, in a world of lies and secrecy, our lifeline to what is really going on. And many whistleblowers (who are very human with human idiosyncrasies and failings) are risking their lives and many have been killed for their attempts to get the truth to humanity. At least 2 Camelot whistleblowers have been killed and possibly more. Several have been silenced. Some have simply gone back to work for the secret space program or black projects. Others, like Norm Bergrun have disappeared and presumably gone back to work for them. Others have had family members die mysteriously or suddenly and the list goes on. Whistleblowing is clearly not good for your health. But it is vital.

To attack an [sic] unreliable whistleblower testimony is the same thing as attacking all HUMAN testimony. Yes humans can be manipulated and deceived and have diabolical aims but they can also be dedicated and truthful and sacrifice their own lives for their fellow man (or woman). Making a blanket statement about “whistleblower” testimony is no more meaningful than to say all politicians lie and all judges and juries are deluded and misled.

Whistleblowers are like those in any other walk of life. Some are truthful and some are not. Some believe what they tell people and some lie with impunity.

As an investigative journalist, documentary filmmaker specializing in whistleblower testimony for over 11 years I can say that there are many ways to tell if a person is lying. Investigating their claims is one of them. Cross-correlating testimony is another. Facial reads and behavioral “tells” often reveal an attempt to deceive consciously. Or unconsciously. And so on… My point is that it is up to us to do the work necessary to tell truth from falsity.

Considering that humans are the predominant species on this planet albeit with mixed heredity and DNA from many other species it is important to recognize that the consensus reality or Matrix we live in is geared to make humans suspect each other before they look to other races such as Reptilians, whose influence over the Illuminati thought forms is extensive. It is part of the Controllers agenda to get humans to see each other as the enemy first!




Documents are notoriously unreliable. We all know that documentation can be faked (like the birth certificates of Presidents) as well as photos and videos (see the Kennedy assassination altered Zapruder film and my interview with Mike Sparks and James Fetzer re Zapruder Film New Evidence) and of course there’s 911 (tv images of planes appearing to hit the twin towers) and so on. I often find it interesting and puzzling that humans will believe a piece of paper or a film or the TV but suspect another human as lying when humans are the ones creating the film and documents in the first place!

College or university educations, degrees and so-called authority figures are all suspect and no guarantee you are getting the truth. Titles and large salaries are no proof of anything other than perhaps of the Controller’s approval or backing of someone… Wall Street is full of people who lie for a living and make money deceiving the public as we know.

My point is that we humans have been taught to first believe outside authorities, documents, organizations and people with money and in the top echelons of power before we believe each other. We are told from birth to follow rules and regulations that are supposedly “good for us” drafted by those in positions of power when time and again we find we have been lied to and misled for an agenda most people have no awareness of.

I do however think it is important for people to weigh the evidence and quality of the testimony we are given and use our hearts and minds to see what resonates and what does not. I firmly believe humans are psychic and precogs by nature and that we can discern the truth where we find it. And as I have said many times, the truth is not served in this reality anyway, on a silver platter. It is up to us to learn to exercise discernment as we journey on our path. And life is an exploration of consciousness.

Question -- What is the goal of this website? Why do we share different sources of information that sometimes conflicts or might even be considered disinformation? 
Answer -- The primary goal of Stillness in the Storm is to help all people become better truth-seekers in a real-time boots-on-the-ground fashion. This is for the purpose of learning to think critically, discovering the truth from within—not just believing things blindly because it came from an "authority" or credible source. Instead of telling you what the truth is, we share information from many sources so that you can discern it for yourself. We focus on teaching you the tools to become your own authority on the truth, gaining self-mastery, sovereignty, and freedom in the process. We want each of you to become your own leaders and masters of personal discernment, and as such, all information should be vetted, analyzed and discerned at a personal level. We also encourage you to discuss your thoughts in the comments section of this site to engage in a group discernment process.
