A recent meme in the form of a video is circulating the Internet and creating a loud buzz in the conspiracy world. The video warns of the looming date of October 1, but the year isn’t given, although the video date is 2013. A FEMA Alert that a retired South Dakota State Senator sent is at the heart of the video, but isn’t revealed until near the end. The alert gives the date of October 1 deadlines for various military tasks, training and deliveries to be completed. (1) The Internet scoop is that the Illuminati is staging something on October 1– just before the American elections. But the year 2014 and the elections aren’t mentioned in the video. The only year revealed in the video is the often blurry media headline dates in the year of 2013. The video appears to be a montage of various videos with an ominous background sound. In fact, a portion of The Illuminati’s Perfect Storm is spliced into the video at 6:57. The overall video message is one of doom orchestrated by the Illuminati in its final move to create a New World Order; a plot designed to incite rebellion among the masses. One video clip narrator discusses how Lil Wayne and other recording artists are being used by the Illuminati to encourage Americans to rebel. The narrator explains that the Illuminati believes the greater the chaos, the greater the control they will gain through martial law.

Prior to the tragic events of 9/11, conspiracy on the net was a broad landscape. JFK dominated in the political realm as did other issues. Sure, there was a lot of bogus information out there, but people tended to stay in their given territories. Hence, I soon realized someone serious about hitting the conspiracy big time online would have to recruit top notch researchers, and evaluate their sources. Thus, it would take a lot of time and money to be a viable alternative to the main stream media (MSM). One thing irked me, though. When Oliver Stone’s JFK came out in 1991, numerous charlatans had emerged hawking their crud. A clear example is conspiracy magnate Bill Cooper, who bought into the tacky theory of JFK’s limousine driver shooting Kennedy. (1) However, Bill Cooper had his own territory and supporters. You could either ignore his bunk or join him (most credible people avoided him). Nonetheless, in the wake of 9/11, one could not ignore any of “them”. A group of wealthy and forward thinking John Birch types (a gross generalization – but you get the idea) began creating or investing in conspiracy based networks. Once a select few would bounce around a few stupid ideas that might or might not take hold. In the new era, one terrible idea triggered another, and they stuck. These networks clearly preferred ratings and hits rather than research, hence the alternate media began resembling something every bit as banal as the mainstream it professed to hate. Emerging from this backdrop around 2001 was one Alexander Emerich Jones.
Paranormal researchers and hobbyists may be happy to hear that longtime paranormal radio talk show host Art Bell will be returning to the air waves. However, he is not returning to AM radio. Bell’s new radio program, Art Bell’s Dark Matter, will air from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. on SiriusXM radio. Bell has been in radio for more than three decades. He has tried to retire a few times prior to this last attempt to retire in 2010. However, it seems that the late night radio waves call to him and he will resurrect his paranormal-themed listener call-in show.
Almost 50 years ago, an American tragedy unfolded. The shock waves have been felt for generations. The assassination of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy on the 22nd of November, 1963, is recognized as the most influential murder of the second half of the 20th Century. Indeed the JFK assassination has become a cultural phenomena, in the way the murder of Arch Duke Ferdinand in the first half never has. Forget UFO’s Earthlings, forget 9/11… The brutal murder of JFK is the well from which serious modern conspiracy thought sprung. Some exceptionally intelligent, articulate and credentialed Americans view the 22nd of November, 1963 as the catalyst for the decline of the United States reputation at home and abroad. These people are not kooks or cranks, and those still alive are definitely not the sorts of easy targets incompetent academics like Michael Barkun and Daniel Pipes want to attack and who figures like Noam Chomsky run from. Here is but a small sample of people whose opinions on the JFK assassination I recommend one take a peek at. –> Gerald McKnight, PhD –> Niall Ferguson, PhD –> Donald Gibson, PhD –> George Michael Evica, PhD –> Mike Parenti, PhD –> John Newman, PhD –> Jefferson Morley –> David Talbot While there is much pointless discussion about JFK’s personal life, the reality is that, while Kennedy was no saint, he was less of a rake than first made out. Indeed, he was in many ways ahead of his time, and the image of Kennedy as a sex crazed “Cold warrior” is a huge myth. (2) As we have discussed verbatim here at Top Secret Writers, false paradigms are present all over any conspiracy debate. As a researcher and writer, it is my duty to try to give you, the reader, the best research and [...]
Are conspiracies a sign of a society that distrusts its government? Or, is it simply the need of human nature to fill in the blanks when something horrific happens that defies acceptance? Whatever the reason, many believe that America has morphed into a conspiracy culture. By nature, humans are curious and on a base level, that trait drives us to explore and seek answers. The search for the truth surrounding events, especially when the answers aren’t readily available, drives some people to formulate theories about what could have happened. Also, a sector of the population are addicted to intrigue and drama. Some are even driven to create it in their lives whenever they can. Motives aside, somehow in the process of asking questions, these theories become set within the American culture.
As events unfolded following the two blasts at the Boston Marathon this year, a very odd and surreal parallel event occurred. There was a reported explosion or fire at the JFK Library. Now, anyone who knows me well knows that even though I run a website that is focused on “conspiracies”, I’m probably more skeptical about drawing connections between events than most people are. However, when such a rare event as the Boston Marathon bombings takes place – for a similar catastrophe to occur in the same exact city, within walking distance of the marathon explosions, is a situation that is very, very unlikely to occur. However, it did occur. Almost exactly after the Marathon blasts, at around 3 p.m. on Monday afternoon, a fire broke out in the HVAC system that houses, according to Boston media reports, offices, a classroom, and “some archival material”. (1) It’s the bit about the “archival material” that made me raise my eyebrows.
The big problem with the rich lists mentioned previously is that these sources tended to only focus on visible assets and earnings. This is okay if you are someone like Bill Gates or the Sultan of Brunei. When they store money away in foreign bank accounts, rarely does this money outstrip their massive earnings. Troubles emerge when we deal with constitutional monarchies similar to the one our friend Queen Liz runs. Royal families have reserves going back generations not to mention Royal relatives in dodgy havens like Lichtenstein, (1) Monaco and Andorra (2). This sort of arrangement lends itself to speculation that there is a cartel of Royal families called the “Club of the Isles” (an intriguing possibility). It pays to be cautious when dealing with LaRouchian and Icke type sources, as Alex Kelley explains to a poster on a thread at the Deep Politics Forum. Away from the hype created by the more imaginative about potential secret Royal cabals, the reality is that the British Royals’ “hidden” fortune is likely a lot more than that projected in magazines like Forbes or Fortune. The hassle is that all manner of good and bad speculation abounds about just how much they really have. The Queen’s “Privy Purse” and its directors ostensibly guide the monarchy’s finances. Which are in turn guarded by the famed bankers Coutts & Co. While the village idiot, Prince Andrew, gets himself in trouble for illegally helping billionaire pals secure monies in places like Monaco (3), the very suggestion that his mother has monies invested in private banking facilities for laundering purposes is tantamount to heresy in large tracts of the media. This is astounding as Coutts & Co has an extremely dubious history of funky financial deals.
The Dorner shootings and resulting manhunt unfolded right before our eyes via the media. The entire event seemed surreal, as if it was the plot of a Hollywood thriller. At the center of it all was Christopher Dorner, an ex-cop accused of the deaths of four people. However, the entire scene hit its climatic end when the cabin Dorner was attempting to hideout in burst into flames. Explosions occurred. Finally, the charred remains of a body were identified as the suspect and the entire case was wrapped up with a nice little bow. However, there are some who believe that everything is just a little too neat. Many contend that the story reported across the country is not the real story. There are conspiracy theories about every facet of the Christopher Dorner case, but the big question is . . . do they hold water? The conspiracy theories began as quickly as the manhunt for Dorner. One such theorist claimed that the entire shooting was a hoax and never happened. (1) The YouTube poster, Dave J, claimed that the hoax was a cooperative effort by the media and police. What did the two get out of the joint effort? Well, according to that particular theorist, the media gets a ratings boost and the police could use the ruse to tighten their control over the public. Nevertheless, as the Dorner case raged on, most people dismissed this particular theory as rubbish. Nevertheless, the theories still flowed in, even more so when police claimed to have identified his body.
You may or may not have heard of the White Dragon Society, a group that proposes to use humanity’s savings to rid the world of poverty, war and environmental destruction. Once such “evils” have been ended, the White Dragon Society claims that humanity can be “set on a path of exponential expansion”, free to reach attainable goals, such as increasing longevity, improving human abilities and using free energy. (1) Ridding the world of war and poverty and improving human abilities certainly sounds like an attractive and compelling proposal and makes you wonder why you haven’t heard of the White Dragon Society before. Until, that is, you learn about the White Dragon Society’s ultimate objective, to counter the illuminati and to fight against the “military-industrial complex”. Now you begin to suspect that the group is either another paranoid set of lunatics who believe that the world’s most powerful humans covertly control everything that happens on earth, or is out to scam people and make money. Similar to most conspiracy organizations, which are typically headed by a dynamic and convincing leader, the White Dragon Society is run by a highly motivated and persuasive “spokesperson” Benjamin Fulford. Although unlike the likes of David Icke, the British writer and public speaker who is famed for his conspiracy literature and in making millionaires from controversial media “honey”, who has attracted a flock of sceptics that believe the “former son of God” is a crackpot just out to make money, Benjamin Fulford’s objectives are a little more ambiguous to judge. Fulford is a Canadian journalist who lives in Japan. For more than 20 years, Fulford was the Asia Pacific Bureau Chief for Forbes Magazine. The journalist left his prestigious role in 2005, claiming that conflicts were arising with the editors over stories that were “getting to [...]
Conspiracy theory, around the time I graduated college, ceased being a way of looking at the world. Rather, it was a form of an entertainment — and one that I hoped to use as a hustle. My intentions weren’t entirely ignoble. I wanted to put out a good product… at a fair price, of course, that would provide me with a good profit. After college, I began to fancy myself a bit of a conspiracy intellectual and budding impresario, a future film producer, book publisher, trendsetter and just about anything else that involved having a great hook, but not doing a lot of work. And so, after smoking a lot of weed and staring at the Lovers Tarot card for some time, I came up with the idea of getting people together under one big tent to view my version of reality for a couple hundred bucks a pop.
