Security Theater by Emily Elizabeth Brown at The New Inquiry

Security Theater By Emily Elizabeth Brown What crisis actor conspiracy theorists believe to be fake implies a much more generous view of the real During the Sandy Hook shooting, a 69 year-old retired psychologist named Gene Rosen opened his home to six terrified children immediately after the massacre. A month later, Salon magazine published an article on the kind neighbor and his continued harassment by conspiracy theorists. Members of a forum hosted on David Icke’s website (the former broadcaster who birthed the iconic “reptilian conspiracy theory”), had mixed reactions. “Some conspiracy maniacs genuinely believe that they can treat anyone as pawns on the basis that they ‘see the big picture,’” wrote one member.  “He is an actor,” wrote another member. “And not a very good one at that.” The idea of “crisis actors” rose … Read entire article »

911 Truther Shoots Movement in Foot – Commits Pseudocide

911 Truther Shoots Movement in Foot – Commits Pseudocide by SMiles Lewis As if the 911 Truth Movement weren’t weird and ridiculed enough already – now it goes and shoots itself in the foot … again. How often do people come across a severed human head lying in the middle of the road? Apparently as often as someone might happen to tune-in and hear a radio-show co-host commit suicide live on the air. Or is it simply a matter of weirdness acting as a strange attractor for ever more weirdness? Whatever the explanation, I witnessed both within forty-eight hours of each other. On Tuesday, January 6th at about 2:35 pm (Central Standard Time) I was tuning in to the webradio stream of upstart Austin alternative media outlet, Freedom Underground Radio. This is the new … Read entire article »

UFOs & The Black Lodge: Blue Rose Report Part 2.1 – CryptoUFOlogy

by SMiles Lewis “My Dream is a Code Waiting to Be Broken. Break the Code, Solve the Crime.” – FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper In the small idyllic border town of Twin Peaks, Washington, tucked away in the forested mountains, a murder mystery unfolds involving the killing of the local high school prom queen, Laura Palmer. When a second high schooler, and potential victim of the same killer, crosses the State’s border, the FBI sends Special Agent Dale Cooper to investigate what we later find out, in the prequel, is one of FBI Bureau Chief Gordon Cole’s (played by David Lynch) “Blue Rose Cases.” And so begins the strange tale of mysterious communications and fantastic encounters that engulfs the town of Twin Peaks and the lives of all its quirky inhabitants, including … Read entire article »

The Shape Shifters by Jim Keith

Topic for Discussion: Given the proliferation in recent years of ufo / paranormal / dreamtime imagery in the media (VW’s “Reverse Engineered From UFO’s” ad comes glaringly to mind), do you feel that this is actually changing or affecting the phenomenon itself? Is the mass-media consciousness causing the UFO phenomenon to change the way it interfaces with us? Researcher Roundtable: The Shape Shifters by Jim Keith Perception of UFOs and whatever-they-are that inhabits them has morphed numerous times this century due to the influence of the various forms of media, so that one might well wonder if we are not dealing with shape-shifters here, rather than a concrete phenomenon. Depictions of alien craft for the first half of this century–in magazines like Thrilling Wonder and Amazing–were primarily rockets, until the famous flying saucer … Read entire article »

The UFO is a Psychic Bomb! by SMiles Lewis

Topic for Discussion: Given the proliferation in recent years of ufo / paranormal / dreamtime imagery in the media (VW’s “Reverse Engineered From UFO’s” ad comes glaringly to mind), do you feel that this is actually changing or affecting the phenomenon itself? Is the mass-media consciousness causing the UFO phenomenon to change the way it interfaces with us?     Researcher Roundtable: The UFO is a Psychic Bom by SMiles Lewis So, “are we being prepared?” Hell yes! The entirety of the human collective is preparing itself for the inevitable: overt contact with the probable multitudes of non-human intelligences / consciousnesses extant within the Universe. It is the urge-to-destiny of every lifeform to go beyond the confines of its original evolutionary environs and become a part of the galactic evolutionary process. It is this inevitability … Read entire article »

Not Your Typical Bigfoot Movie

Southern Ohio may seem a world-away from the Pacific Northwest habitat one typically pictures when they hear the word Bigfoot, but the region does have a rich history of hairy biped reports. The rugged Appalachian foothills of southeastern Ohio, in particular, have a number of reports from the Shawnee State Forest in Scioto and Adams Counties, and the Wayne National Forest further east. In his book “Field Guide to Bigfoot and Other Mystery Primates” Loren Coleman recounts the story of a devil monkey seen in the Duncansville area of Adams County. (Duncansville, which is mostly Amish owned hilltop pasture land and forest, is a short drive from the famous Serpent Mound and was a destination for curiosity seekers in the mid to late 1980s because of an image of … Read entire article »

Real or Surreal – Black Ops Badges

by SMiles Lewis Some time back I saw this allegedly official patch for stealth bomber pilots and crew. The 509th Bomber Wing were the first atomic bomb flyers and were based out of Roswell, New Mexico. I never thought it was likely to be real. Then last year friend and fellow researcher Greg Bishop wrote about his encounter with the patch while working on a new British documentary called Mirage Men. Apparently, UFO researcher Curtis Peebles had acquired one of the patches. And another UFO researcher, Dennis Balthaser actually called the Air Force and interrogated someone over the phone trying to ascertain the validity and meaning behind the patch. Now, it appears that an artist and activist named Trevor Paglen is having a bit of fun doing what he likes to do most, … Read entire article »

CASTRO and JFK: Plot and Counterplot

By Kenn Thomas After Fidel Castro stepped down as Cuban dictator, CNN’s post on the fanciful US assassination plots against him included the following: Project Amlash-Rolando Cubela. Cubela, whose code name was Amlash, was a member of Castro’s inner circle from the beginning. He had become disenchanted and made contact with the CIA as early as 1961. Nestor Sanchez, his CIA case officer, was meeting with Cubela in Paris when President Kennedy was killed in Dallas, Texas, November 22, 1963. Sanchez provided Cubela that day — at Cubela’s request — a poison pen-syringe to be used either on Castro or on himself, in case of a failed attempt. Nothing happened. As CIA covert operations against Castro began winding down, the Agency put Cubela in touch with Manuel Artime, the exiled chief … Read entire article »

Mission Creep: RIAA / NDAA Training for Privacy Invasion

Recall that back in late 2001 the RIAA wanted Congress to pass laws allowing them to hack into your computer (aka “Break the Law”) so that they could snoop around your hard drive for pirated materials (and who knows what else they might find and turn you in for). Well now a training video has surfaced that supports the RIAA’s privacy invasion campaigns because … they can lead to discovery of evidence of other non-piracy related crimes. [youtube]O2DwTWJNk-k[/youtube] Hat tip to & Leaked RIAA Training Video: Find Pirates and Also Find… Crack Dealers and Terrorists? There’s a leaked RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) training video produced with the NDAA (National District Attorneys Association) floating around the web that argues U.S. prosecutors should pursue piracy cases because it leads to … Read entire article »

Interview with Parapolitical Researcher Kenn Thomas

Kenn Thomas Interviewed by Kali of Karmapolis. 1 – FEMA detention camps have been subjected to a lot of writing and speculation during these last years in United States. Videos, images and detailed descriptions of these camps are available on the net. It is difficult to source the origin of these descriptions. Do they really exist? What are their final purpose? Activists in parapolitical studies – let’s call them “conspiranistas” – come up with these identifications to underscore the idea that America still has disaster areas that suffer from federal emergency mismanagement. As Randy Newman sings, “free to live in a cage in East St. Louis and the south side of Chicago,” with the obvious most recent example being post-Katrina New Orleans. The kind of detailed thing you refer to, with video … Read entire article »

Suspicious Death of Scientology Critic Shawn Lonsdale

For those not familiar with the history of the Church’s criminal activities (including the “single largest infiltration of the United States government in history“ orchestrated in the UK by David Gaiman, father of The Sandman comics creator Neil Gaiman) and the past and current activism against them, you should know that Scientology is waging global war against Psychiatry and the world’s Goyim whom the church wants to eliminate. So why would this devoted anti-Scientologist activist suddenly commit suicide in such a bizarre and suspicious way so soon after the largest world-wide campaign gained public attention?

He worked for a brief time in his younger days as a male prostitute, and … Read entire article »

Roswell 1947 crate in new Indiana Jones trailer

Click Link For Movie Trailer: … From a Friend … At about 1:25, you can see the Cate Blanchett character testing some kind of magnetic power inherent in this metal crate, which is stamped “Roswell New Mexico, 1947”! The trailer itself is also super cool. Jones is back! Enjoy! I agree with my friend, it looks exciting! I saw a sneak peek of the original Indiana Jones film, Raiders of the Lost Ark, as a child at the Fox Theater on Airport Blvd. in Austin, Texas (where now there is only a used car lot). We came out of the theater under a low roiling cloud cover that mimicked what we’d just seen in the climax of the film. It was spooky. I still have my original Raiders gimme-poster from that premier … Read entire article »
