Recently there has been a substantial amount of skeptical interest in what appears to be full disclosure from the Mexican government in regards to never before seen Mayan artifacts clearly depicting aliens and spacecraft. I immediately started to do some digging because on the surface this seemed almost too good to be true, and as Agent D and I always say--if it looks too good to be true, it probably is. Check out this video first, then continue reading my report below...
As I began digging I came upon a website with some very clear photos of these "artifacts" which I will refer to them as from this point forward. I use this term lightly because without verification of the SOURCE of these artifacts and without any type of scientific analysis of their age, they could have very well been produced last year by a Mexican artisan. We'll circle back around to this later...
The second aspect to this story is the strange case of the documentary filmmakers involved; Raul Julia-Levy and the investor funding the film, Elisabeth Thieriot. The documentary itself is the real deal, and interestingly enough it was even picked up by mainstream news media.
The information -- protected for 80 years -- is expected to reveal Mayan beliefs in future catastrophes and wisdom characterized as "shocking," producer Raul Julia-Levy, son of actor Raul Julia, told TheWrap. The Mexican government is releasing state-held secrets about the end of the Mayan calendar to the makers of a documentary, "Revelations of the Mayans 2012 and Beyond," TheWrap has learned.

According to its eager-to-give-a-quote producer Raul Julia-Levy, the 3D documentary will be a watershed moment in human history. He says it will reveal, for the first time, proof of extraterrestrial contact. It’ll show proof that aliens and ancient humans mixed, including a 3000-year-old landing pad for flying saucers and an underwater Mayan city (which Julia-Levy helpfully clarifies as “a city that was built under water, and not a sunken city”).

Okay, so far this looks pretty good, right?
It starts as most typical UFO-conspiracy-plot yarns do. The producers say pieces of the puzzle have been found over the last century – but governments suppressed this dangerous knowledge. First the British government hid hints. Then the Americans. Possibly the popes were in on the game too – Julia-Levy claims that, earlier this year, an official Vatican spokesman got in touch with him and demanded a private meeting. According to Julia-Levy, the Mexican government was complicit in keeping these secrets for the past 80 years. But he claims that former President Vincente Fox (a friend of his famous family – note the “Raul Julia” part of his name) personally let him in on this secret. Fox then spent four years lobbying current President Felipe Calderon to let Julia-Levy reveal the truth to the public. He claims that higher-ups in the Mexican and Guatemalan governments, prominent archaeologists, and the Council of Mayan Elders (who are going to reveal their 3,750-year-old secret book for the first time) are all coming forward. Also – that the preeminent scholar of the universe Stephen Hawking (aka “the wheelchair guy with that robot voice thing”) is working with them on the film and is on board with the theories. (source)
But apparently Raul Julia-Levy isn't who he claims to be, and here's where things start to take a turn for the weird...
It turns out that Raul Julia-Levy – invariably described by the press as “the son of the late actor Raul Julia” – may only be pretending to have that famous father. According to a 2005 article in the New York Times, Raul Julia’s widow was distraught about a con man by the name of Salvador Alba Fuentes going around telling everyone his name was “Raul Julia-Levy.” She said Julia-Levy/Fuentes was pretending to a prominent parentage to get his own producing career going in LA. Raul Julia-Levy, for his part, retorted that he WAS the result of a brief, sordid fling between the famous actor and his mother – but that his mother doesn’t want to talk about it.
On his IMDB page, Julia-Levy is listed as an actor, producer and writer. Among his credits is a listing for the 2006 movie The Champagne Gang, on which he is credited as an actor and associate producer under the name Raul Julia Jr. The bio says it was written by “LH Vaughnes, Publicist,” but a search did not immediately turn up anyone by that name with a publicity firm.
Now let's add a multi-million dollar lawsuit to the mix!
In a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court and obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, Thieriot charges that she financed a documentary titled Revelations of the Mayans: 2012 and Beyond, in partnership with Raul Julia-Levy, but that she had to shut the production in Mexico down after he misused rented equipment and enlisted the local authorities to try and “steal the footage, equipment and documentary” from her.
Her suit claims that in retaliation, Julia-Levy falsely accused Thieriot of fleeing Mexico in violation of a government order, illegally filming on federal ground in Mexico and stealing footage and equipment related to the documentary; all of which she says is completely false. (source)
So why would a documentary filmmaker attempt to 'steal' footage and equipment from the person who is personally financing the entire operation in the first place? Stranger still, why would he lie about it and then go to the local authorities to file an official complaint? What are we missing here?
Thieriot, who says she is the ex-wife of the former publisher of The San Francisco Chronicle, describes herself as a “well respected philanthropist” and author.
“This perversion not only defames and severely damages a respected, innocent and decent human being,” says the lawsuit, “it creates a fraud on the public."
Movie producer Raul Julia-Levy claims in court that philanthropist Elisabeth Thieriot failed to pony up the $500,000 she promised for the movie "Revelations of the Mayans 2012 and Beyond," that she transferred money from the production account to her own, "absconded with the footage," "usurped (his) creative control over the project," and interfered with his contract. Julia-Levy's lawsuit this week comes a month after Thieriot sued the entertainment website The Wrap, which published an article about her, allegedly based on information provided by Julia-Levy. Thieriot was and is a managing member and "the investment member" of R & E Productions LLC, which was formed to make and distribute the movie, the complaint states. Julia-Levy claims that he and Thieriot agreed in February this year to make the movie, which the Superior Court complaint calls a documentary. (source)
Hmmmmmm. SOMEbody isn't telling the whole story here and it's still difficult to determine who. Thieriot may indeed be a 'philanthropist' but she may also be the one person perfectly positioned to shut down a documentary that certain people in our government don't want to see the light of day. It's no secret that the US government isn't keen on the open policy of the Mexican government. Imagine for a moment that Thieriot is approached secretly by some 3-letter agency and asked to put the kabash on the whole operation. If she does it instead of them it won't look suspicious. Throw a libel lawsuit in for good measure and the whole thing starts to look like just another garden variety Hollywood lawsuit, right? Right.
But lets circle back to the artifacts themselves and this guy Nassim Haramein who is shown describing these artifacts in the video. From what I can tell, Nassim is the real deal.
In the past 10 years, Haramein has directed research teams of physicists, electrical engineers, mathematicians and other scientists in exploring the various aspects of unification principles and their implications in our world today . He has founded a non-profit organization, the Resonance Project Foundation, where, as the Director of Research, he continues in developing a research park in Hawai’i where science, sustainability, and advanced technology come together to generate viable solutions for our planet’s current energy crisis.

BIG QUESTIONS REMAIN...
What I CANNOT determine is the where, when and why behind this video. Where was the presentation made? When was it presented? And why? I am pretty well informed of Ufology conferences worldwide and I attend quite a few (incognito, of course) and yet this one remains a mystery to me. More importantly, what was the original SOURCE of these artifacts? There are many photos of these artifacts available on the web but they all had to originate from an original source. Was that source the Mexican government? In my digging I have yet to find any references to these photos on any official Mexican channel, government or otherwise. This raises a red flag. Photos are just that--photos. NOT solid proof. I could fake Mayan artifacts in Photoshop all day long and nobody could tell the difference. In fact, I could hire (very cheaply) a Mexican artisan to produce said artifacts very easily. So some photos and a lecture from a physicist does not make this the real deal. Even if we could physically touch and hold these artifacts it STILL doesn't prove anything unless we can scientifically put an age on each of them. This has been the primary reason The Object Report hasn't jumped all over this topic. Is it compelling? Certainly. Do some big important questions still remain? Absolutely.
Agent D and myself will continue to investigate this subject. If it turns out to be 100% true, then this will most certainly be the biggest step toward full disclosure that our species has seen so far. Until then, we will remain skeptically interested while we continue to dig for the truth.
