    Editorial Review

    Michael Baigent, Henry Lincoln, and Richard Leigh, authors of The Messianic Legacy, spent over 10 years on their own kind of quest for the Holy Grail, into the secretive history of early France. What they found, researched with the tenacity and attention to detail that befits any great quest, is a tangled and intricate story of politics and faith that reads like a mystery novel. It is the story of the Knights Templar, and a behind-the-scenes society called the Prieure de Sion, and its involvement in reinstating descendants of the Merovingian bloodline into political power. Why? The authors of Holy Blood, Holy Grail assert that their explorations into early history ultimately reveal that Jesus may not have died on the cross, but lived to marry and father children whose bloodline continues today. The authors' point here is not to compromise or to demean Jesus, but to offer another, more complete perspective of Jesus as God's incarnation in man. The power of this secret, which has been carefully guarded for hundreds of years, has sparked much controversy. For all the sensationalism and hoopla surrounding Holy Blood, Holy Grail and the alternate history that it outlines, the authors are careful to keep their perspective and sense of skepticism alive in its pages, explaining carefully and clearly how they came to draw such combustible conclusions. --Jodie Buller ...

    I may not agree with the entire thesis of this book. But I agree that anyone should read it and not believe the propaganda being put out agasinst it by Opus Dei of the Cathoic church which has launched it's smear campaign against it.Christ was the son of God, not God.He came from a "virgin birth" because he could not lead us to God if he was of the line of Adam who used up his chance to worship God by sinning."Salvation comes through the shedding of blood."Christ did not need to get married and have a family.He was the second Adam who came in Adam's place and did it right this time by obeying God and preparing for our return to the father.Christ was able to exercise the perfect obedience that Adam did not.Christ mends the fence, the division that allows us to be forgiven and return to the father through repentance.Christ did not need a family. We are his family.He came to gather us together.His gift to us was the Holy Grail which is the Holy Spirit freely given to all those who are drawn to him in spirit and in truth.Holy Grail = Holy Spirit and our ultimate return to God and eternal life.
    What intrigues me here is the way the Catholic church's Opus Dei has concocted the De Vinci Code book in order to debunk and destroy this book.It is terrible that the Catholic Church wold deliberately muddy the waters and try to destroy anything that challenges its ultimate control.I believe the Council ofchurches did indeed keep important books out of the Bible that explain to us how to meditate/pray and return to Christ on our own and NOT NEED THEIR CROOKED SERVICES.This church wants power, not our independence. GOD DOES NOT DWELL IN A CATHOLIC CHURCH (any church) MADE BY HANDS.A true jew is a person who is a jew inwardly (circumcised heart) and not a circumcision of the flesh. We do not need any phoney church to tell us what to think or to debunk this book.(I just saw the whole thing on the history channel and how Opus Dei, the right wing Catholic group close to the Pope, is choosing to challenge this book with the ingedibly garbagey "De Vinci Code."We see you for what you are with you graven image idols and Pagan statues! Please know what you are reading and where it's coming from.

    Secrets of Rennes Le Chateau

    3-0 out of 5 stars More than meets the eye
    I think there is more to this book than meets the eye.Read the appendices re umberto eco.

    1-0 out of 5 stars "Something" hits the FANthorpe at Rennes le Chateau...
    I have to say that I agree with the previous reviews which are phrased very politely.I don't feel so nice after spending my money on three books of illogical drivel.I won't even read the other two, but will return themfor a refund!

    On page 42, Fanthorpe mentions Guirdham's book "TheCathars and Reincarnation," saying that Guirdham "very lucidlyindicates many Cathars actually believed in reincarnation: if the evidenceof Dr. Guirdham's principle informant is to be taken seriously, and thereis much in her evidence that deserves careful and sober reflection, someCathars actually succeeded in practising it."

    Well, aside from beinga non sequitur, I am not sure how a person "practices"reincarnation.But, then, Fanthorpe goes on to outline the Cathar beliefsjust as though they are the one's derived from Guirdham's source... whichthey are NOT.

    As it happens, I just finished reading Guirdham's book,and what Fanthorpe tries to imply (or wishes the reader to infer) asinformation from that source, is merely the same old anti-Catharist rantderived from the records of the Holy Inquisition. So much for Fanthorpe'shonesty.

    Next, in one of his snide jabs at Lincoln, Leigh and Baigent'sexcellent work (leaving out whether it is correct or not; it is still goodresearch, and is well presented), Fanthorpe makes the most AMAZING statmentI think I have ever encountered, to wit: "By invoking an argument astortuous as any Orwellian... doublethink, "The Messianic Legacy"attempts to discredit any arguments based on subjective feelings and innerexperiences. ...[Lincoln Leigh and Baigent protest] that when the feelingsand beliefs that belong to this inner sanctum begin to 'distort, alter ortransform historical fact' or when they 'derange dramatically the laws ofprobability' the believer cannot expect other people to 'condone theprocess.'This line of thought seems to presuppose that something called a'simple historical fact' can ever be ascertained with the certainty whichBaigent, Leigh and Lincoln ascribe to it.The simplicity is knocked out ofmost so-called simple historical - or any other kind of facts by the theoryof relativity and its comments on the position of the observer."(p.46)

    Fanthorpe then goes on to set up an example that has NO relationwhatsoever to the issue.He describes a tramp hanging underneath a movingtrain looking up through the glass floor at two boys tossing a ball, withan observer on the platform, all of whom would describe the tossing of theball in different ways because of their perspective.

    This example hasNOTHING to do with the idea of a person who projects a subjective feelingon the event, and who believes that the ball is holy or thatkeeping theball in motion is necessary topreserve the universe intact!

    Fanthorpethen goes on to toss in Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle.He didn't seemto get it that, yes, Schrodinger's Cat can be dead or not dead untilobserved, but once OBSERVED, he is either dead or not dead; until itbecomes a fact, it is not a fact, but once it has become a fact, you can'tchange it!

    Fanthorpe seems to think that facts can be changed AFTERthey are observed - and he certainly works very hard to make sure that thisis the case in this book.Using Fanthorpe's reasoning, you could justifyselling anything as a "fact."

    Don't waste your money. Fanthorpe's "subjective feelings and inner experiences" are whatyou are buying, and they aren't worth two cents.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Some good info, but seems biased
    The Fanthorpes explore the Rennes mystery, and offer some good information in this book.However, it isn't always presented clearly and some of the theories and conclusions they draw from it don't seem fully supported.Iwas left with the impression that the book was half Rennes investigation,and half platform from which to denounce Holy Blood, Holy Grail.It's notsurprising (given Lionel's clergy background) that they would disagree withHoly Blood, Holy Grail's conclusions.But this potential bias must beremembered when reading it, and their dismissive tone when talking aboutsome of the more controversial theories about Rennes needs to be taken witha corresponding grain of salt.If they offered counter-evidenceconvincingly presented, that would be a different matter.Instead, theirotherwise interesting investigation seems marred by jabs at otherinvestigators...usually countering other investigators' arguments withfaith instead of evidence. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars hidden history
    The Gods of Eden by William Bramley is an excellent account on discovering who the "man" behind the curtain truly is. His research has uncovered a history that has been masked for centuries. It's contains have lead to me to other works related to this subject such as, "UFOs and the National Security State" by Richard Dolan, and the "Secret History of the World" by Laura Knight-Jadczyk.

    5-0 out of 5 stars There is Much to Fear!! Consider Reading this Book Carefully
    Notice the reviews on this book. There are very few in the middle. Those who praise the book have read it. That is obvious from the knowledgeable approach they have taken to their review. They have read the book.
    The detractors obviously have not. This is evident from comments which the paranoid skeptics make. They attribute the book with motives and text that aren't present in any shape or matter.
    However, if you do read the book, and you reading without bias, it may shake you. There is Much to Fear!! Consider Reading this Book Carefully,

    5-0 out of 5 stars Landmark Book, Only for those willing to Open their Mind
    The Gods of Eden along with Genesis Revisited by Zecharia Sitchin, stake out the alternate history that many are afraid to even consider. Not a dogma, but a window on the possible. For his bravery Bramley has been attacked with the same vehemence that others have attacked Velikovsky.
    I purchased 20 copies of this book and shared them with my students, who also read the Old Testament, the New Testament, Bullfinch's Mytholgy, the Bhagavad Gita, the Koran, etc.
    Read this book. You needn't be convinced, but let it provoke thought. Be open minded and consider all the options. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, I took the derivation of "freemason" further
    The author goes into great detail about how "free" may have been an Anglicized version of the French term "frere" meaning brother.But he didn't go on to explore that "mason" could be an Anglicized version of the French "maison" meaning house.So that an ex-Templar on the run would search out a "brother's house" for safe hiding.Looking for fellow "freemasons."

    A great, insightful, thought provoking book.

    3-0 out of 5 stars If you really want to know the history, this is your book.
    Though somewhat tedious at times, this is one of the books to go to if you really want to know about the history of the Knights Templar and of Freemasonry.

    The first part of the book deals with the history of The Templars, the warrior monks, who were one time protectors of the Church, and then became its biggest target.

    The second part of the book deals with the ties of modern Freemasonry to those Knights, and discusses symbolism in the rituals and rites of modern Freemasonry.

    Mr. Robinson goes in depth into the story of religious persecution, the Crusades, and their effect on bringing out the medieval secret society that would later publicly emerge as The Freemasons in 1717.

    Some people may accuse this book of being somewhat anti-Catholic, but the tone really sets up the reasons why Freemasonry came to be, and why one of the fundamental tennants of it is religious tolerance and freedom of persecution.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Thank you for your support
    Bravo, Bravo, Bravo!Finally, a good book, with an opinion about Freemasonry that doesn't leave you scratching your head and wondering why you became a member of an organization that the rest of the world, specifically the religious world, deems unfit.John J. Robinson has given a very clear, accuracy not evaluated, concise description of a very inflammatory subject.In my humble opinion, he has done this with a seemingly unbiased presentation of historical evidence linking two very diverse organizations, The Knights Templar and Freemasonry, at the hip and establishing them as related to one another.Robinson openly admits in his work that he is not a Mason.His description of Freemasonry and its roots are descriptive enough to whet your appetite to research and read more about the fraternity.I appreciate the fact that he has not written a work damning every man associated with the craft and has actually endorsed their affiliation with the fraternity.Many times throughout this book, I found myself highlighting, taking notes, and audibly exclaiming a surprise regarding information I had just read.Case in point would be Robinson's description of how words can be bastardized by the churches and religious communities of the world to mean something that linguistics do not allow (pg 312-313).In a sense, much of the teaching of Freemasonry has been supported by Robinson in his defining clarification of how history has established Masonry as a perceived "secret society" when the fraternity has not done so by itself.My hat goes off to Robinson and I wish there were more authors like him. ...

    Rule by Secrecy: The Hidden History That Connects the Trilateral Commission, the Freemasons, and the Great Pyramids

    2-0 out of 5 stars Worthwhile topic, stupid book
    If you're going to write a book purporting to reveal the key to the understanding of history, you should at least have a basic grasp of historical events and chronology. Jim Marrs commits numerous howlers, such as claiming that a Trilateral Commission member wrote a 1975 paper referring to the Three Mile Island disaster. The problem: TMI occurred in 1979. Also, he mentions that Mayer Amschel Rothschild grew up in Frankfort, Germany during the 1740s in an environment poisoned by the antisemitism of the philosophers Kant and Fichte. This would be possible *if* Fichte had been born yet (he was born in 1762) and if Immanuel Kant (1724) had been particularly interested in antisemitism. It might have been even more helpful if antisemitism in a modern sense had been formulated--it was a ninteenth century idea.

    I would like to give _Rule by Secrecy_ one star, but I'm giving it the benefit of the doubt. The parts I read were so stupid and ill-informed that I couldn't stand to finish it.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Mr. Conspiracy's Hidden Agenda
    I purchased this book back in 2000 - near the begining of my five year search for the truth - hoping to learn something about the history and influence of the Freemasons. With respect to the "hidden" historical facts, the book is loaded with interesting "unpublicized" facts that are not taught in school and do not appear within the pages of any high-school or college level texbook on U.S. History, and I would definately recommend this book for those who are just begining thier search for the "Truth" - i.e. the real reasons why our political leaders lie to our faces; ignore the Constitution; promote racial and class warfare; refer to illegal aliens as "undocumented Americans" and to abortion clinics as "family planning centers".
    But for those who've already discovered the "what" and the "how" pieces of the New World Order puzzle and are looking to fill inthe "who" and, more importantly, the "why" pieces in order to see and comprhend the Big Picture then I definately would not recommend this book.
    The reason why, of course, is because Mr. Marrs attempts to rule out the true culprits - i.e. the "Architects of the New World Order" - on pages 60 & 61. But then again, I guess that's to be expected from someone who refers to the Bible - the best selling and most widely read book of all times - as a "hodgepodge of myths, legends and parables" (pg. 345)

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very informative and a good read
    This book traces the connections between the worlds most powerful families to reveal who really runs the world and what their agenda really is. Marrs has done a lot of research (as usual) and documents everything. He reveals the secrets of the Federal Reserve System, the Freemasons and gives a wonderful commentary at the end of the book. For anyone who wants to know the despicable workings of world politics, this is your book. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Mixed Feelings
    I read the other reviews. I must agree, the author quotes from a bunch of unheard of wacko sources.And personally, I won't advocate stories stemmed from narcosynthesis and hypnosis.At the start and end of this book I was very interested.At many epochs in between, I was tediously scanning unsupported MIB accounts.Disregard that one reviewer called this work scholarly.The reference to the eye in the triangle insignia intrigues me... You would think after reading this that if the victims of the reports were malevolently warned to keep silent, that the MIB would certainly not let this book be published to the masses, or maybe the alternative, it is simply not true. Only for the very interested.

    Best quote from the book, p 115

    "[The] three men are not just peculiar to 'Saucer' investigation, for there have always been 'three men' present during every great event of recored (and unrecorded) history.They operate as hired henchmen of the 'International Bankers' and their only duty is to suppress all men who would act as channels of truth to other men... These secret world rulers will never allow official UFO announcements to be made to the public.If they did allow it, it would spell their doom.If the technology of the space visitors is revealed it will immediately eliminate the need for oil, gas, automobiles, and practically everything else that drains the public and keeps every family in America on a credit-buying spree until they are deposited six feet under."

    Please excuse me, there are three oriental men at my doorway


    5-0 out of 5 stars What has the author been smoking?
    Jim Keith had to have been smoking something when he wrote this book.He has NO hard evidence and rants on about information which was clearly made up and horribly organized.DO NOT READ THIS BOOK IF YOU ARE LOOKING FORENLIGHTENMENT. If you want to read a bunch of bs by some whacked out authorwho has nothing better to do with his time then read it.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Incompetent lowdown of fictionalities
    In short summary, this book is an outright disgrace.My apologies to allUFOlogists who came here to find enlightenment, you certainly won't find ithere!

    The author belates the point by making insane references to booksnobody has heard of (which are probably just imaginary books from imaginaryauthors), and makes no attempt to clarify any of the incompetent andoutrageous statements he puts forth.

    If you go for this stuff asentertainment, this book may provide a laugh or two--like a particularlywell-crafted X files episode--but if you seek true enlightenment throughthese pages, you're in for quite a disappointment. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars If you can't get the basic facts right...
    ... how are we supposed to believe your theories that are harder to substantiate?

    The litany of errors is hilarious.
    Davis-Monthan AFB in Tuscon, AZ is alternately named "David Monthan," "Davis Munson," and "David Munson."Any road map could've provided the correct information.
    Ft. Indiantown Gap in PA is similarly renamed about 3 different times.

    Among the most amusing contention are the 30,000 "UN troops" stationed in Barstow, CA.First, Barstow doesn't have the water supply to support the 22,000 people that do live there.Second, the "UN troops" were probably soldiers from nearby Ft. Irwin, who wear different uniforms because their job is to portray the bad guys for units who come there to train (and there are fewer than 2500 of them).Third, why Barstow?What are they going to do, take down Las Vegas?And would anyone miss it if they did?

    The best of all, though, is the cargo train of New World Order UN vehicles travelling through the western states.Keith claims they are "BMP-40s."They are quitely clearly Canadian Grizzly armored cars and M113 personnel carriers.Had anyone bothered to compare the timing of this train and the training schedule at the National Training Center, they would've known that the Canadians had a regiment of troops training with the Americans and these were the Canadian vehicles going home.When "Soldier of Fortune" debunks your cornerstone theory and dismisses it as the ravings of a right-wing lunatic, you know you're in trouble.

    The Russian tanks seen on flatbeds near Gowen Field, ID and El Paso, TX?Probably going to the local weapons ranges to be shot at, since we've been using Russian tanks for target practice for decades, to test the effectiveness of our own weapons.

    All in all, this is worth reading for the humor in it.But not worth spending money on.Unfortunately, there's no lower rating you can give than one star, but this one deserves to be in the negative.

    3-0 out of 5 stars The future under a New World Order.
    I approach this book as an outsider to this genre.I'm not big conspiracy theory buff.I'm not a survivalist.Nor am I a die-hard political fanatic.Like most Americans, I go about my life vaguely aware of what's happening in our government.Given that, I went into this book with an open mind.

    Jim Keith, who I find after some research, was one of the leading writers in government activities.With Black Helicopters Over America he raises some interesting questions.What is our military doing?What exactly does the government have in mind for our future?What part does our government play in the political machinations of the United Nations?

    Keith lays out the plans for a New World Order.He describes an international police force under U.N. direction.He shows the groundwork for the disarmament of the people and the rights that we could lose in the new world state.Keith also describes a future of concentration camps for those that would speak out against the New World Order.

    Black Helicopters is a straightforward book laden with factual events and policies.However, though the events and policies may be factual, the context and details of those entries can sometimes seem questionable.As with most any issue, facts can be arranged to display the picture the writer wants to be seen.

    The material in the book is a bit dated.Even though it was published in 1994, events in the book date back as far as the 1950s.Most of the events presented are from the 1970s.This in itself softens the credibility of the text.While writing this review, I did find out that Keith published a follow up book in 1998 titled Black Helicopters II : The End Game Strategy.I would imagine that the follow up takes the reader current, up to 1998.It may be worth the time for interested parties to read this book to see if Keith presents more recent events that would add credibility to his arguments.

    If anything, Keith does present enough information to make the reader think.In fact, Keith urges the reader to step back and take at look at the information that is available.In my opinion, the underlying point of Black Helicopters is: To make educated decisions based on researched facts and to understand your government and what it is doing.It is something to think about.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Propaganda for idiots, filled with factual errors
    It is such a shame amazon.com doesn't allow for a "bomb" or "zero star" rating, because if ever a book merited one, this would be it.

    A friend of mine gave it to me as a joke gift, and I immediately found all the timelines about cattle mutilations, black helicopters, and other urban (rural?) legends to be slightly less interesting than reading the phonebook.

    Factual errors include descriptions of the AH-64 Apache helicopter as a "troop transport" (it's an attack helicopter and it cannot hold any troops at all), a reference to the military base at "St John, Canada, near Montreal" (the town is called St-Jean-sur-Richeleu and there hasn't been a base there for years, now it's just an army language school), and descriptions of helicopter crews wearing cowboy hats (what, no helmets or intercom headsets?)... ...

    1-0 out of 5 stars Puh-leeze
    I picked up this disjointed piece of dreck at the local library booksale. (If nobody checks out a book for more than two or three years, they don't keep it. Now I know why.) Turns out it was a total waste of my 25 cents. Mr. Thomas "uncovers" conspiratorial "connections" which would only be plausible to an intellectually-challenged, unmedicated paranoid schizophrenic. See, the Gubbament doesn't want you to know about Stuff, see, and so they like, brainwash people and stuff, see ... it's a fact! Puh-leeze, the X-files was fiction there, bubba. It is illuminating to note that two of the 5-star reviews for this windy and disjointed diatribe are by the author himself, and another touts how utterly engrossing it was for an eight-year-old. Ahem. In short, if you are in need of kindling, I heartily recommend you check out this author's other vanity press works. And K-k-k-ken(n), better kept your curtains closed, 'cause THEY'RE WATCHING!!! Ooooooo, scary!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Availability of this book is about to drop/Puh-leeze lie*
    I have received word that the remaining print run of Maury Island UFO was destroyed by the widow of the publisher, who wanted to deplete the stock and close the business. I am sending out this heads up to tell potential readers that this might mean an escalation in the price of the book before too long. One of my previous books, The Octopus, typically sells for $100 these days. So get 'em while they're cheap!

    * I would apologize too readers of the "Puh-leeze" review on this page, but who can apologize for all the children out there with a computer to play on? I would like to correct an impression left by one of the reviewer's lies, though: none of my books has been pubilshed by a vanity or on-demand press.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Essential Reading
    Sifting through the dust and slag of a peculiar historical event--and turning up new gems of information--is just what author/researcher Kenn Thomas has always possessed a certain instinctive knack for.

    With Maury Island UFO: The Crisman Conspiracy, Thomas has once again added new perspective to a tale that has been retold many times by UFO investigators, though the dangling threads have never quite been pieced together, and conclusively sewn shut. (But what UFO case ever is?) This is not to suggest that Thomas has tied everything together at last, and arrived at a final answer to the mystery of what went down at Maury Island; first with the slippery sightings of Harold Dahl and Fred Crisman, then later during Kenneth Arnold's investigation of the case, when the Men In Black apparently reared their finely attired heads, along with Air Force Intelligence and other assorted spooks and hobgoblins.

    What Thomas has done, though, is a very thorough research job outlining Crisman's involvement in the Maury Island affair, and how this all connects--oddly enough--to the JFK assassination dance party, and ultimately Danny Casolaros' Octopus. At first glance, one might consider such connections as these the ravings of some half-cocked "conspiracy nut", but Thomas' research is so extensive and exhaustive that one is left with enough evidence to draw their own conclusions as to just what type of mischief the enigmatic Mr. Crisman was up to. Now, how many people do you know who have seen a UFO, collected remnants of same, and were also involved (allegedly) in the Kennedy assassination? (Not to mention battling Deros in subterranean caverns?) Well, Fred Crisman very well might have achieved all of the above, along with a lot of other strange undertakings during the course of his colorful career.

    Although the evidence contained in Maury Island UFO is not conclusive by any means, after reading this book one can not deny that Crisman was as equally mercurial as other figures linked to the Kennedy assassination--from David Ferrie to Kerry Thornley--among a whole host of other spooks and bit players who lurked in and out of the shadows of Dealey Plaza and similar strangely infested environs, such as Maury Island, the home of the first modern UFO case, that may very well have been a disinformation hoax at the hands of Mr. Fred Lee Crisman. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Smell of Truth
    This book, although somehwhat cryptically written--in the uncomfortable vernacular of JFK assassination research buffs--nevertheless is in my estimation a valuable addition to JFK assassination research.Anyone who is up on this literature has to have a good "crap detection" system, and this selection seems to have passed the test with flying colors. Since the early 70s, all serious roads to discovering who killed JFK seem to be leading back to tying up the loose ends left by the Jim Garrison New Orleans investigation.And since there were many such loose ends to tie up, doing so is not a small job. Torbitt has hit pay dirt, and at the very least, pushes Garrison's investigation to the next research frontier--if not to the very edge of completely uncovering the assassination plot.Yet, there are questions this research raises itself.For instance, I am not yet convinced of the Nazi connections--even though there is muchcircumstantial evidence to support Torbitt's point of view. Despite my misgiving, this piece is coherent in the extreme and can stand on its own.We know that when the conspiracy is finally uncovered, the truth will have its own unmistakable context, and this book has the "smell of truth." ...

    1-0 out of 5 stars This book is Fiction!
    Read this book if you are looking to read a work of fiction.On that level, the book is amusing.Don't read it if you are looking for a definitive book on the Kennedy assasination.The bibliography starts out by saying that the book "contains incomplete information about its sources".That gives you some idea about the substance of this book.This book is about a "Rumor".The "Rumor" makes for good fiction, not fact.

    5-0 out of 5 stars An Early Try at Peeling the Occult Onion
    The obvious answer to the book's rhetorical question title is yes.

    So buy it, read it, and your appetite for political ectoplasm will either burgeon to obsessive proportions or fatally wither quickly.If the former becomes the case...

    Try and get your hands on Farewell America (still valuable), The Stargate Conspiracy (best new expose), Report from Iron Mountain (satire), and Blowback (first version).

    Learn all that you can from Madame Blavatsky's Baboon, Messengers of Deception, Space Aliens from the Pentagon, The Great UFO Hoax, and The Murder of John Lennon.

    Then try any book from Jim Keith, Tex Maars, Paul Krassner, Alex Constantine, Constance Cumbey, John Keel, Wilson Bryan Key and Robert Anton Wilson, just for fun and spiritual guidance.Avoid Bill Cooper, Edgar Cayce, Phillip Corso, Dr. John Coleman, Peter Moon/Preston Nichols, Elizabeth Claire Prophet, Jim Marrs, Richard Hoagland, Dr. John Leir, Mark Lane, ALL UFO-related magazines(since WJB bought the only really serious one)except the lighthearted Excluded Middle and Fortean Times and ANYTHING by the LaRouchies, Birchers, Scientologists or Liberty Lobbyists (except the exasperating Final Judgment) however.

    If I need to warn you about abductee books of the Streiber/Hopkins/Fowler/Jacobs variety, death books from the Kubler-Ross/Moody/Brinkley school, or all the Merovingian Kings/Holy Bloodline books, you're probably a New Age victim/sucker and won't follow the rest of my sage advice in this delightful review either.

    (I'm still reserving judgment on Jon Rappoport, John DeCamp, and Ted Gunderson until I learn more about their REAL military records.)

    Walter Bowart, God bless and save his tortured soul, probably had most of the answers in Operation Mind Control, a quarter-century ago, before all the Cathy O'Brien/Brice Taylor forced-disinfo was spread to muddy the waters, but WERE WE CONTROLLED? really started the ball rolling even earlier with its tawdry first, quickly out-of-print little edition.

    It's hugely gratifying to see it back in print again: mistakes, oversimplifications, distortions and all.It still is a very useful and comfy place for unbiased researchers of the "Dallas unknowable" to begin."Lincoln Lawrence lives!"(Which is more than he [?] could ever say...)

    Just why Childress decided to re-publish IT, and not the Bowart or Hepburn (pseud.) material, or all that great, nearly unpublished John Judge, Peter Dale Scott, Dave Emory, Mae Brussell, Sherman Skolnick and Carl Oglesby stuff, for the gigantic mass market his Stelle/Keininger-derivative pulp-press now succeeds in reaching, thanks to a very-friendly buyer (ha ha!) for the Borders chain, remains yet another unsolved (for now) mystery.

    Maybe David's a widow's son too, and hopes to see the Golden Cap in place on NEXT New Year's eve.(I know Kenn Thomas isn't, but his current entrancment by the pseudo-demonic dot-s lady may be an even worse fate.)

    Of course, "Lincoln Lawrence" can neither sue nor collect royalty checks... ... Read more

    The only way to know if the 350-1000 handwritten pages of Bruce Porter Roberts, given the name of the Gemstone File could be used to arrest and convict the killers of John F. Kennedy is to find them, read them, anddetermine where the information came from and how reliable it is.

    Untilthe original documents are released, there is no way to know where theinformation came from or how reliable it is.

    This is the fourth book onthe subject so far, and the obvious behavior to engage in is not beingfollowed!

    If you want to read an enjoyable, indepth look at the possible truths behind the James Bond books and films, pick up this brand new book.Chapter Seven is a classic, truly a good, fun read thatgives indepth dataon what Ian Fleming had in mind regarding Bond and his villians. There'sconvincing evidence that the supervillian Blofeld probably was based on thereallife Aristotle Onassis.The linkages are intriguing too, such as themysterious Area 51-type location, the Hughes-clone, the Onassis-clone, theoil industry thatare evident in the 1972 Bond film based on Fleming's*Diamonds are Forever*.I'll stop there, other than to mention that rightbefore Ian Flemingmysteriously died, he had apparently made arrangements tofly up to NewJersey to talk to his old British intelligence service buddy,Ivan T.Sanderson, according to this book.And that's just the tip of theiceberg.There's more history in this one book than in ten historytextbooks you'll find in your local school!Highly recommended. ...

    I was disappointed in this book because it atttibutes all evil to the Nazi branch of the Illuminati without any reference to the Zionist Communist branch. The tips offs are 1) He defends an acknowledged Communist spy Harry Dexter White as a true patriot.He retails the lie that James Forrestal committed suicide. Don't waste your money on this book.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Secret Establishment Behind the Power?
    This frightening and almost depressing research, drive us to the quasi unknown underground word of conspiracies.
    Starting in the previous years of WWII, Mr. Constantine guided us through the tortuous ways used by de nazis to get into power and how after the end of the war - in collaboration with several US agencies - infiltrated and blended into American culture, economy, society and policy but the most shocking part of this research is how these "organizations" manipulated the citizenry. Operation Mockingbird, created with the purpose of total control of the mass media, buying newspapers, magazines, tv channels and infiltrating Hollywood to influence and control public opinion. The use of innocent citizens as human guinea pigs without their knowledge or concent, the torture and brainwash of adults and children to experiment mind control techniques is the most scary part of this book that make us think and enlight a little about why so many people ended alienated, commiting suicide or becoming mass murderes without a reason. I strongly recommend this book to people who like, enjoy or have certain interest in conspiracy subject.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Book on American Fascism I have read
    This is without a doubt the best book on techno-fascism, hell, on fascism in general, that I have ever read. This is the unadulterated, universally censored truth about domestic politics, and Alex Constantine is a couragous journalist indeed to take on the "Establishment" withintelligence and clarity. The documentation is exhaustive, and I recommendthis book to one and all. I anxiously await his next tour de force. ... Read more

    The Seventy Greatest Conspiracies of All Time: History's Biggest Mysteries, Coverups, and Cabals

    Editorial Review

    The book may claim to chronicle the "greatest conspiracies of all time," but there's a decidedly 20th-century bent to Vankin and Whalen's compilation--not that there's anything wrong with that. Many of their selections are familiar territory--the Kennedy and King assassinations, government suppression of UFO data, questions about Marilyn Monroe's suicide--but this edition has been updated to include information on more recent events like the death of Princess Diana and the Oklahoma City bombing. (Although not without some disheartenment: "Back in the good ol' days when conspiracy theorists were still considered crackpots," they lament, "it actually took some kind of evidence to get this kind of frenzy under way.... Now anytime some poor sap dies every frat boy with an Internet account races to be the first in his quad to post the conspiracy of the moment.") The individual essays are written in savvy, journalistic prose, and the authors freely admit that they don't have the answers to any of these mysteries. But that's part of the entertainment value of such historical paranoia--you're always free to imagine some new twist. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Several years later, and I STILL re-read it!
    Especially in the post-9\11 world of intrigue, The 70 Greatest Conspiracies of All Time is by far one of the best tomes ever committed to print.It has nearly EVERTHING: the first Gulf War(where the name Enron mysteriously appears), MK-ULTRA, Roswell, the Men in Black(the "real" ones), fluoridation, and of course the assassinations of the Kennedys.With humor and self-awareness, Johnathan Vankin and John Whalen take you on a bizarre yet all-too-real trip through the foggy underbelly(can an underbelly be foggy?) of conspiracy!

    5-0 out of 5 stars You know...I am stunned by the interest,, good and bad
    Despite the rather weak title (it put me off a little - and there ware only 60 then) I read this book from cover to cover, and while I know most of the speculation involving these "deep political processes" (I much prefer Peter Dale Scott's distinction between the two), I was stunned by the level of knowledge and real research and committment here. Forget the history teacher that gave 1 star for lack of research - that is laughable. To even make 60 cases for intregue (now 70) and make them well and coherently says a whole lot. My hat is off to the authors for the Pan Am 103 expose. If it ever does come out properly, that could outrage a whole new section of a 'silent but skepticle public'. Notice Qadaffi, now America's new lap dog. INFORMATION is power, and guys like binLaden, Hussein, and Qadaffi have a whole bunch of it. Drugs; the covering and "doubling" of the runners; the huge illegal profits which can be funneled around the Legislative Laws of the Land. These are at the heart of the tragedy of Pan Am 103. My point is that we need to get middle-minded, middle-class, good, bright, loyal Americans to start to take some of this stuff seriously. May I humbly suggest losing the word "conspiracy" - I know that it sells books, but it is the rope which is being used to hang and invalidate the concept of "deep political process". The authors make real valid points with what most people know is fishy, 'cause they've heard about it: MK/ULTRA, the October Suprise - which I think went further than anyone has dreamed. My view is that Carter was sabatauged WHEN the hostages were "TAKEN" - oh...just another American 'asleep at the wheel" intelligence failure? C'mon, we did the same thing with the same cast to Iran and through Iran not but 20 some years earlier. Carter gets screwed by his CIA (bumblers, huh?) much like Dulles ****ed Kennedy in the Bay of Pigs, much like BOTH Dulleses did to Eisenhower every time he tried to make a detente move. The pattern is there and it is well documented - forget that the hostages came home the day the Gipper was sworn in...think about how IMPOTANT Carter was made out to be. Look at the results - No-one gets hurt, the Contras get their arms, we get our "hostages" (and our drugs, and cash) and Carter loses by the biggest landslide since Goldwater disappeared. OK, I'm off topic again. Sorry. This book is So well researched, that I am suprised it is still in print, Seriously. Gore Vidal's Essays from 1992-2000 have been discontinued at public libraries. This is getting very Orwellian. I guarantee you'll find something her that makes you pause. I can only guess what the new 10 are...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Sleep well my child, for everything's fine out there...
    Ah here's another book destined to disgust the orthodox thinkers of this world who insist everything is clear-cut out there. If you belong to that caste you need not bother with the book or this review. The rest do read on.
    Basically, this book is the musical industry's equivalent of a "best of". While seasoned conspiracy theorists will tell you that there's definately more than 70 conspiracies that need listing this is not the aim of this book.
    What it aims at is to serve you with a summary of the top conspiracy material circulating planet earth and poke you on to do the rest of your reading yourself (or should i say the rest of your thinking?).
    What you get is a short summary for each of the 70 conspiracy theories listed here. They seem to be well researched too for anyone with a deeper reference to all these theories.
    True, most of the stuff being "investigated" here belong to the really glorified conspiracy theories, and, it's very probable you've heard or read them somewhere before: aliens, area 51, mind control programs, JFK, machurian candidates, secret weapons to name but a few.
    The writting is very entertaining especially since the authors don't omit to add their own touches of sarcastic scepticism to some of the most extreme theories they involve.
    More addvanced students of conspiracy lore (if you want to call it that) will probably not be satisfied here as this book is nothing more than a very dense presemtation of the "facts".
    But, if you are just starting to get into this kinda stuff this book is a cool start as it will smoothly and effectively introduce you to the trenchcoated world within your world.
    And if some of the theories presented here seem a bit "too far out" for your tastes just remember that "nothing is really as it seems" whether you believe in conspiracy theories or not.
    Reality is not monodimensional anyway, and neither is the level of reality that we humans can interfere with.
    Or are we humans to start with? But no, i better not get into that one.. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Look out Robert Anton Wilson! Either David Icke is competing for the "Paranoid of the Decade" award or he knows something the rest of us don't. Icke reveals a sinister web connecting everything from the British royal family to major oil companies, to 33 of the last 40 U.S. presidents, in a global conspiracy masterminded by an interstellar brotherhood vying for planetary control through the manipulation of humanity's very way of life. Icke digs into every facet of contemporary society to expose the invisible horror lurking beneath the calm veneer of everyday life. In the process he gets downright offensive, knocking everything from Judaism to the Denver airport. Even if you can't swallow Icke's distasteful revelations or follow every step of his labyrinthine conspiracy theories, The Biggest Secret is sure to forever change the way you look at the Amoco oil logo. --Brian Patterson ...

    Yes, finally, somebody wrote a book that serves as an invitation to sell your brain.Just get rid of that damn brain, you don't need it.Icke has the answer.

    This enlightened man likely noticed the amount of time people were spending in an attempt to understand how the world works, how it has changed, and how it can change through organized effort.Looking to relieve people of the tremendous burden of being alive and thinking about the world, Icke finally penned the tome we've been waiting for.

    Yes, it has all the answers.Pretty much.He comes from every angle, and then, in a real coup of publishing wit, he hits us with the secret.The world is run by another species from the fourth dimension.A species of lizards.

    Though I strongly suspected this when I noticed Bill Clinton's tail wagging with glee during a press conference in 1994, Icke finally comes clean with the whole thing.These lizards literally rule the planet.

    After learning these secrets, I threw away all of my books.Don't need 'em anymore!I'm free!I'm free!If anyone is interested, I'm selling my brain as well.Used, minor wear, normal sized, pink, squishy.I'm asking a fair price.

    One thing troubles me about the book, in fact, about all of Icke's work.He conveniently excludes a list of the drugs he is taking, or perhaps more importantly, the drugs he has been prescribed but is not taking.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Kind of twisted
    Sure, there's a universal goal to create a new world order, and there's freemasonry and there's symbolic meaning in symbols,but referance to satanism is really far out plus,reptiles are born and they have to cut there tail off after birth? mental,picture of michaelangleos Human Male circle with a erect penis?(or two of them)The lower forth demision which is another referance to satanic cults! No such thing Sure miltary secret devices that the human eye can't see. Later part of the book human beings need love but so do the reptiles. He's either a satanic lord himself or metally ILL. One of his pictures of the wrecked car in Princess Dinas accident looks like a insect.(if it is acually a real photo of her car. Still very interesting reading. Did he write this book on his own or did a Santanic Cult help him? Only he knows.It's his biggest secret. Or we could all take LSD and finally see the reptiles. :>)

    1-0 out of 5 stars Argumentum ad Absurdium
    Unless you are of a credulant disposition ready to believe the slightest conjectures and leaps in logic as proof of a broad (broad being an understatement!) conspiracy theory, just don't bother reading anything by David Icke as he has nothing to offer for the sound and rational mind to ponder over.Remember, this 'sound' theory is presented by someone who, not too long ago, publicly proclaimed that he was Jesus Christ with warnings about an imminent Judgment Day only to later recant his claims as to his divine identity.

    Icke's new theory is no longer on his divine origins from The Holy Trinity but that humanity is the product of abreeding experiment carried out by exploitatively cruel and tyrannical reptilian extraterrestrials (he even goes so far to suggest they might be highly evolved dinosaurs! Yes, of course, they're the Slistaks from 'Land of the Lost'!It's so clear to me now!) who have been monitoring our evolution since our arrival upon this Earth.Supposedly this breed of reptiles has been most active in interbreeding with Western Europeans and Jews, thus explaining the latter's cold calculative and exploitative traits in comparison with the rest of humanity (the only thing he proves here is that he's an anti-semite and anti-white biggot!)According to him, this conspiracy continues to manifest itself through elected officials, royalty, scientists, the military... well, you know, the usual suspects in these types of conspiracy theories. These aliens and conspirators can shape-shift and teleport to avoid detection of course and that's why they're so elusive and powerful.In turn, such leadership is involved in sinister Satanic rituals in secret locations such as subterranean complexes where they indulge in orgiastic feasts and human sacrifice.In short, just watch Carpenter's 'They Live' or the TV series 'V' or read Lovecraft's Cthulluh myths and you get the jist of his argument.

    The dementia/paranoid delusions of the author and the absurdity of his proposition are immediately evident to any reader of average education and sober mind.The conjecture is so laughable that I couldn't continue reading due to the tears from my eyes smudging the pages of this farce of a book.At one point he explains that the late Carl Sagan was a collaborator with these evil reptilian aliens as, (1) He had a strange fascination with extra-terrestrial life and the cosmos; (2) he was a scientist and a Jew, groups normally part of this conspiracy anyway and, (3) 'Sagan' spelled backwards is 'Nagas' which is a Hindu serpent god therefore, (4) Carl Sagan is a reptilian alien deceiving the public about the truth of extraterrestrial life and his participation in a global/galactic/intergalactic alien conspiracy to dominate humanity and exploit the Earth.Wow!I have seen the light!How could I have been so blind all these years!? Icke is not a deranged and uneducated retired soccer player but a true progeny and genius historian, anthropologist, physicist, astronomer, philosopher, etc.Icke is also a world reknown linguist on par with Noam Chomsky; convinced that a translation from Sanskrit to the Roman alphabet of the word 'Nagas' is conclusive proof that mythological serpent gods, evil reptilian aliens, and conspiratorial Jewish astronomers/physicists are all one and the same. Icke goes on to boldly state that Relativity and the Heisenberg principle are false/obsolete scientific theories superceded by a completely new domain of physics/quantum mechanics which he never bothers to explain; he simply makes reference to some obscure physicist whose theories no one has heard of or accepted in the scientific community at large: but remember, his strange theories were rejected because most physicists and other scientists are part of the alien conspiracy (Of course! How could I be so dismissive! Remember the Sagan/Nagas paradox is irrefutable proof of that conspiracy!)

    Following Icke's reasoning one can reach countless conclusions that are all equally absurd because such line of reasoning is illogical; for example, my dog must be god because 'dog' spelled backwards is 'god': with his revelations in proper reasoning I have been enlightened as to the divine scheme of things: those must be signs!What else could they be?!I must now read more of Icke's works to know the whole truth as to what my dog might have in store for me: maybe I have to build a temple in veneration to his divinity!Perhaps we are being controlled by half-human/half-dog aliens who pretend to be gods but really control our minds through our innocent-looking canine companions! This is clearly true as it has been shown in films such as Spaceballs with the Mog character played by John Candy; Mel Brooks produced the film and he is Jewish after all and, Jews are part of the conspiracy without question anyway. Anubis was also a half-canine half-human deity in Ancient Egypt who held the keys to the underworld which clearly symbolizes the presence of these human-dog aliens on Earth and nothing less: the Jews were in ancient Egypt too by the way and were clearly collaborating with Anubis.The U.K., France, and the U.S. all have obelisks in their capitals which are ancient Egyptian symbols and Anubis was Egyptian too.It must therefore also be a certainty that the conspiracy is being perpetuated today by the Purina and Alpo companies that are controlled by Jewish stockholders who are in collusion in covering up this evil canine conspiracy and just turning all of us humans into dog food for their consumption!Such lines of reasoning are defined as logical fallacies of red herring, ad absurdium, or non-sequitur, and cannot be the basis for any rational or scientific discussion of any sort.

    Anyway... if you're a reader of sober judgment who wants sociological/scientific theories supported by logic and the scientific method, don't bother reading this book as it is nothing but an arrangement of fantastic/absurd postulations based on pure conjecture and hyperbolations: the logical fallacies in this work are too many to recite in this brief review.At best, David Icke is a writer with a sick sense of humor who thrives on having his anti-western/anti-semitic fantasies taken as fact by a loyal readership comprised of the credulant and mentally ill; at worst, he is a person who suffers from one or more dissociative disorders ranging from psychotic dementia, lunacy, mania, paranoia, or he is simply a full-blown paranoid schizophrenic.Don't waste your time with this garbage pseudo-science and watch some good science fiction instead so you won't die laughing.Although I am not dismissive of the possibility of extraterrestrial life, I choose to found my conclusions on empirical observations and sound logic: I wouldn't base my conclusions or even inquiries on such matters upon the absurd postulations presented by this demented imbecile of an author.

    4-0 out of 5 stars interesting find...
    the book did have some valid points and ideas about conspiracy's but some of them seemed a little too far fetched. I noticed that if u look at the front cover in whiteor bright light carefully you can see the numbers 666 on the mans forehead and a certain man named aleister crowly has a mention in this book....coincidence? thats the only thing i found particulary odd about the book.

    5-0 out of 5 stars For the Openminded
    This book doesn't pretend to be 100% true.The editor Keith even warns to the introduction of some articles that this or that particular one may be deliberate disinformation.However, as he notes in the introduction to the book, most media is unwilling to even allow the public to consider ideas that are counter to accepted dogma and make up their own minds, and the purpose of the book is to stimulate debate.

    Some of the articles are extremely well researched and beyond dispute and in the vein of the Project Censored book series, like one proving that the Jonestown Massacre was NOT a mass suicide but a mass murder (drinking poison Kool-Aid does not leave bullet holes in one's back).There are more questionable but still interesting articles, e.g. one on how Aids was invented by the government to eliminate blacks and gays, but with some clearly factual background.A, what I assume, is a brilliant social satire written from the point of view of "The Conspiracy" called "Quiet Weapons for Secret Wars" which one realizes, after reading for a while, is about how the monetary system ITSELF(vs. Capitalism, etc.) may be seen as a tool of social control.There are also paranoid rants of varying worth, but the most indisputely brilliant of them being by Shelby Downard which may be easy to dismiss on an intellectual level, but is very effective on an emotional level.

    Also included is a brilliant essay "Is Paranoia a Form of Awareness?" written by the only person to have published a book about Lee Harvey Oswald BEFORE the Kennedy Assasination (about their life in the Marines and as guinea pigs for MK-Ultra) that notes that the so-called average person is usually in a state of denial and also notes his own experiences with the Garrison investigation (depicted in the movie JFK).

    And don't place any importance into the fact that there is a swastika on the cover.There is also a cross, a crescent, and other symbols that have been used to control the masses on the cover.The fact that someone who hasn't even read the book missed the point further illustrates the book's necessity.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Couldn't even finish it
    If ever there was a book that epidomized the phrase "you can't judge a book by it's cover", this is it.

    It's just a collection of writings that couldn't make it into real conspiracy books.And there's a reason:because they are incoherent, poorly written and just plain stupid.The longest one is about how the Masons did everything, but it seems that there is no transition between his ideas.Two paragraphs about Masonic control of the royal throne in Englans and suddenly it changes to JFK.You reread it thinking that you missed something, but you didn't.Terrible.

    Lots of Masonic/Illuminati conspiracy theories, which I'm not really into.But if you are, I would have to imagine that there are better books on the subject. ... Read more
