For those that don’t know, Richard Dolan is a scholar, historian, and renown researcher within the field of alternative research.

Dolan’s research has been integral in bringing in a new fresh point of view within the field of UFOlogy and this works exemplifies this rather trenchantly.

The Secret Space Program & Breakaway Civilization by Richard Dolan mirrors incisively the rest of his works quite well, although in a much more shortened manner given the length of the book.

Having coined the term “Breakaway Civilization” in his UFOs & The National Security State series, Dolan follows up with this booklet, which is a salient synopsis of the presentation he gave in San Mateo, CA in 2014 at the Secret Space Program & Breakaway Civilization Conference.

Admittedly, if you have seen that particular presentation of Dolan on youtube, then this will be nothing new.  However, if you are new to the subject, or want to have a written reference for what Dolan discussed in his presentation, then this book is certainly for you.

Dolan begins discusses UFO reports/statistics and the ongoing phenomena.  Thereafter, the author discusses the fascinating story of Ingo Swann and his remote viewing prowess.  Swann’s findings and experience definitely lend a thread of credibility that makes the reader aghast at the possibilities.  The fact that remote viewing experimentations were taking place decades ago shows how vital this type of discipline was to reconnaissance and more.

Discussed soon after are Karl Wolfe’s testimony, which he shared during the Disclosure Project, Donna Hare’s testimony regarding having to airbrush any evidence of UFOs as well as the story of Vito Saccheri.

Throughout the book Dolan homes in on the implications of the SSP & Breakaway Civilization at various stages and how these interweave with our reality in many ways.  This is appreciated given how many new folks will be reading this particular subject, and to have this subject analyzed and spoken about in a methodical, no-nonsense but in-depth and open-minded way is definitely refreshing.

Another data point delved into is Leonard Stringfield’s finding of “the crash retrieval syndrome” coupled with some cases which are highly provocative to say the least.

Also noted within the book is Dolan’s gander at what journalist James Goodall was told, which regarded highly advanced technologies stationed at the Nevada desert at the time.

Most notably, Dolan makes sure to harpoon many of the deeper implications that the subjects of Secret Space Programs and Breakaway Civilizations entail, as well as why it’s vital for the SSP & Breakaway Complex to maintain control of the subject and more importantly, the sciences.

Dolan also gives a glance at the ever illusive paradox of disclosure, while also giving light to some of the more notable renderings that relate to footage of UFOs, such as the STS 114 footage.

Soon thereafter, the author gives what he sees as the most likely scenario of the topic at hand, while also giving a cursory glance to the possible goals of the handlers.

Finally, Dolan gives his take on what individuals can do to detach from the control system and help bring about change in this discipline as well as others.

In its totality, the book not only gives individuals a hardcopy of one of Richard Dolan’s best presentations, but it’s also a different way of assimilating information.   Different people learn in different ways, and having this type of media for people to learn is highly helpful for those that appreciate tangible books like myself.

This book, or perhaps most notably, the idea of a Breakaway Civilization and  Secret Space Program certainly helps put many seemingly disparate pieces come together in a way that helps shed light onto the darkness that abounds.  And in that, this book certainly shines.

Having said that, we need cognize that how the world looks a century from now will be proportional to how individuals decide to live their lives in relation to this topic and others.  If individuals so choose to educate themselves becoming autodidacts, and also incite others into actions such as Richard Dolan has and continues to do, then the world will in fact begin to change accordingly.

Book Review: Yahweh The Two-Faced God: Theology, Terrorism & Topology By Dr. Joseph P. Farrell PhD & Dr. Scott deHart PhD

Yahweh The Two-Faced God By Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D and Scott deHart Ph.D is a book with resounding implications.

In the structure of the book, the authors post an interesting conundrum: that the theological terror and mayhem that has taken place since the spawning of the three Yahwist religions [Judaism, Christianity & Islam] is in large part due to the full fragmentation of people into dialectical positions that permanently pin people in opposing groups.  This has caused a culture clash in many ways as can be seen in present day and in historical times alike.

Arguably, the most vital reason this book should be read is to come to an understanding of how the big three religions are used by certain nefarious interests to socially engineer schisms due to their inherent nature which is deeply interrelated at the outset with Yahweh and his polar opposite tendencies.

This is best exemplified by the following passage by the authors:

“…a schism has been introduced into the social structure that is thus revolutionary in nature, for a dualistic dialectic has now become a defining feature of the social space:  all accepting the Yahwist revelation are exclusively within the realm of truth, of light, of illumination, of belief.  All outside of it, “Egypt” are in the realm of falsehood, darkness, idolatry, and unbelief.  This “cloven space,” to employ the metaphor of George Spencer-Brown, has become the common cultural and intellectual space of the Western world for two thousand years, and the cultural space and intellectual world of Islam for almost a millennium and a half.”[1][Bold Emphasis Added]

Such are the origins of the beast that society currently faces.

Further discussed within the pages of this book are subjects like the topological metaphor of the medium, social engineering and violence, culture clashes, moral schizophrenia, programming of behavior, the inherent set of moral contradictions, deaths ordered by Yahweh, and more.  Some of these topics are addressed at greater length than others, but they all weave seamlessly into the central thesis of the authors.

Particularly of interest is the fact that the authors home-in on the many problems with prophecies, the rapture doctrine, the ‘apocalypse’ meme and geopolitics, all of which are being employed in all their despicable glory to accomplish wicked agendas.

These agendas are all inherently divisive, as the authors cogently note:

“…the contest is not between “Christian and infidel”, but Yahwist and infidel, between those who wish to return the world to a mediaeval barbarism of bonfires and beheadings for thinking the wrongs things or being “an infidel”, howsoever defined, and those who do not.

“In short, the violent division of the social space and its final violent apocalyptic apotheosis in nihilism that constitute Yahwism in all its forms can only be combated by alert minds and warm heart…”[2][Bold Emphasis Added].

While this book’s tackling of the three monotheistic religions and how they have been instrumental in socially engineering many of the inherent issues that we have to deal with at this time will not get as much attention as the other books written by the authors or Dr. Farrell’s work, it’s still vital for the deep comprehension of the current state of our global cultures and how and why they clash.

Book Review: Propaganda And Mass Persuasion – A Historical Encyclopedia, 1500 To The Present

Propaganda And Mass Persuasion – A Historical Encyclopedia, 1500 To The Present by Nicholas J. Cull, David Culbert & David Welch is broad surveying of a large portion of the propaganda that has historically taken place the last five centuries or so.

For the record, the book has many other contributors than the ones listed above.  The ones listed are only three of the entire group.

In any case, the book is divided alphabetically, which certainly helps, and is footnoted to the hilt, which is greatly appreciated.

Showcased within the book are the smorgasbord of ways propaganda can be used.  Common methods such as television, radio, and media are delved into, while also cursory glances are given to posters, leaflets and other tools used historically.

A wide sprinkling of Individuals, methods, movements, ideologies, movies, countries and more are each given a decent gander within the confines of this piece.

Propaganda And Mass Persuasion exegetes the precise historical periods of some of the largest propaganda campaigns that have taken place.  From World War 1, to World War 2, Vietnam War, and even many other wars, the book delves into how propaganda played a role in assisting and/or countering an opposing side.  Along with this, the book even shows how mass persuasion has been viewed by the establishment, and how it has served a major purpose in pushing particular agendas.

Ultimately, steering vox populi is the main focus of any propagandist, and this book shows why.

In its totality, Propaganda And Mass Persuassion is quite didactic for a neophyte, given its expansive historical range.  That said, given the size of the book, it can only really home-in on certain historical applications with great precision.  Because of that ome areas were somewhat lacking however.

The data set addressed was rather scholarly, although admittedly from an establishment point of view.  Much deeper layers of this topic are only given mere glances, or simply glossed over in their entirety. Simply stated, the book is congealed – or so it feels – to cement official narratives.  Giving you enough scholarly data for it to be legitimate, but not following additional published documents/data sets that that would confect a much larger and complete picture.

It is up to the reader to take cognizance in the lacking breadth and scope of the book.

As a starting point, it’s certainly quite superficially comprehensive, and it certainly belongs in a researcher’s library.  However, the glaring omission of social engineering – which is propaganda’s ultimate goal – are to be looked at quite askance.   That subject alone could be written about at length, and isn’t even given a glance.

If you are a student of propaganda, mind control, social engineering and the like, and happen to get this book, just realize this isn’t the end-all-be-all of sourced material.  There are many books by many great people on Amazon, and countless documents published which go into farther depth than this book has.  Make sure to spend time and search for those in order widen your repertoire and be more able to keenly ascertain when such tools are being used against you, and your kith and kin.

Book Review: Art Of War

The Art Of War & Other Classics Of Easter Philosophy showcases some of the most timeless and meaningful eastern philosophical classics to exist.  The best part is that the book is as beautiful outside as the knowledge is endless in the inside.

With ivory white paper, and a solid binding and spine to boot, the Cantebury Classics offer a LOT of value in a leatherbound book.   In fact, out of all the Cantebery Classics its hands down my favorite one –  aesthetically pleasing and content-wise.

To get a broader perspective of what the book contains, the Table Of Content Follows:

The Art Of War [Without Commentary]
The Art Of War [With Commentary]
The Tao Te Ching
Confucius Analects
The Great Learning
The Doctrine Of The Mean
The Works Of Mencius

Having recently read the Tao Te Ching and Confucius’ Analects, it was a pleasant surprise to see them here again.

The gems of wisdom contained in those books is much to ruminate upon, so having those books, along with The Art Of War and others was just like having Christmas seven days in a row.

If you are interested in any of the above books and also plan to venture into the other books covered in the table of contents sometime, do yourself a favor and get this book.  You will NOT regret it.  It will also save you money when you add the prices of all six works.  Even if purchased all used they will cost more than this one.

Having been given multiple copies of Art of War it still didn’t detract me from getting this one.  Wouldn’t hesitate getting one again, and in fact am considering purchasing one for posterity’s sake since this one’s getting highlighted and written upon with notes to the hilt.

The smorgasbord of insights within the pages in this book is as lucid as it is prodigious.

Book Review: Lovecraft Code By Peter Levenda

Lovecraft Code by Peter Levenda is an occult thriller that features mystery, suspense, action and more.  

Like a roller coaster, Lovecraft Code starts out at a steady pace laying the context for the book, picks up speed as the mystery deepens, changes directions through different historical narratives, and just when one thinks things are likely to slow down the book then spirals off into a new direction.

The attention to detail the author features in making this book feel realistic is superb.  With a story woven through different time periods but which ultimately coalesces in the present, Levenda merges many seemingly disparate subjects into his first fictional opening salvo that leaves the reader wanting more.

If you enjoy topics such as H.P. Lovecraft esoterica, secret cults, spycraft, necromancy, and all of this with a dash of remote viewing, Nazis, ancient archaeology with additional topics to boot, then this book is for you.

If you’ve read Levenda’s gamut of work, which admittedly encompass many various disciplines, then you should appreciate this.

Lovecraft Code, which was originally to be named Lovecraft Codex but Levenda had to change it, does a rather trenchant job in bringing about a believable backdrop upon various esoteric subjects in an interplay of events that makes you question whether the book is fact written as fiction…or something else entirely.

Now, if you happen to have never read any of Levenda’s work, but still appreciate H.P. Lovecraft’s work, give this a shot.  Levenda does a very commendable job in continuing “The Call Of Cthulhu” mythos but in a very modernized and yet precise setting.

The characters are believable, the story flows rather well, the historical individuals/backdrops the author chooses to include at certain junctures gives the book an even more vibrant feel.  Heck, Levenda even deftly interlaces H.P. Lovecraft himself, as well as Himmler for a minute!

With all things considered, this book does not read like someone’s first fictional novel.  Lovecraft Code feels like a book composed by a seasoned writer of fiction.  Then again, some might argue that Levenda has written books before, and that’s correct.  However, just because someone can write non-fiction books doesn’t mean they can execute fictional ones.  There are plenty of disasters out there, and this one is not one of them.

As a follow up to H.P. Lovecraft’s renown ” The Call Of Cthulhu” this book gets two thumbs up – and a few tendrils! – for a job well done.  Definitely looking forward to more work from Levenda in the future.

Book Review: The Healing Power Of Touch – The Many Ways Physical Contact Can Cure by Karin Sullivan

The Healing Power Of Touch – The Many Ways Physical Contact Can Cure by Karin Sullivan is an encyclopedia – albeit a small one – outlining the various ways that healing can be brought about through touch.

Sullivan begins by examining data which shows how powerful human touch can be.

From there the book is essentially split into two parts.

The first part of the book examines the vast array of touch therapies available to individuals.  Granted, given the wide-array of therapies discussed, the author gives each therapy a very cursory but reasonable overview.  Within these therapies discussed, some of the ones mentioned are: acupressure, reflexology, reiki, shiatsu, chiropractic, ayurvedic massage, aromatherapy massage, applied kinesiology, myofascial release, and much more.

From there on, the second part of the book focuses on specific conditions.  These conditions, which number at least 50 in the book, include many major diseases.  Each of these lists various of the therapies which were known at the time to work.  Some of these conditions included diabetes, depression, insomnia, headaches, hypertension, colitis, cancer, burns, bronchitis, bone spurs, sinusitis, shoulder pain, sciatica, pregnancy discomfort, Parkinson’s disease, nausea and vomiting, cancer, asthma, arthritis, and more.

One thing to keep in mind is that the information provided within the book was published in 1998.  Since then there has been increasing evidence and studies that showcase the many benefits of many of the alternative therapies mentioned in the book.  How many studies have been conducted really depends on which therapy is covered, but the fact remains that the benefits have helped many.

Alternative therapies have been growing immensely over the years and it is now a multibillion dollar industry.  This goes to show people are attempting to get away, and rightly so, from regular for-every-ill-there-is-a-pill mindset of BigPharma.  Books like this one help show what’s available for individuals, even if the book is slightly dated.

Regardless, the book can serve as a small encyclopedia, or as a jump-off point from where the individual may research further any of these topics.  Given that there are no side-effects for these therapies, they should at minimum be considered, if not downright researched thoroughly for individuals who have disease, or wish to stay in a health state of being.

Book Review: The Imaginative Argument – A Practical Manifesto For Writers by Frank L. Cioffi

This book is absolute dynamite.

The Imaginative Argument – A Practical Manifesto For Writers by Frank L. Cioffi is an unprecedented venture into boundless possibilities that lie on the other side of conformity for writers.

Cioffi stacks the book to the hilt with a vast amount of practical, thoughtful, yet incisive information that allows individuals to see the multitude of possibilities available in argumentation, while still leaving the reader with the versatility to focus and employ their own style in their writing repertoire.

Sourcing authors such as Orwell, Goffman, Benedict, Updike, James, Nabovok and more, the author helps the reader analyze them and view their notable writing idiosyncrasies for the strengths they were, also showing the vast range these writers employed.

The Imaginative Argument is an outside the box, or better yet, a NO-box, type of book that sets depth charges to foundations of traditionalism and strives for something imaginative, something greater, something more meaningful.

Cioffi’s skill in this book is a mixture of equal parts mad scientist and academician that employs mathematical precision merged with the range of an artist who employs the universe as its canvas.  A true perfect fusion of the left and right brain to boot.

That is very, very rare in any type of book, as usually books gravitate towards either taking a polarizing approach either being mechanical, or overly imaginative.  This is one reason why the book appeals to me.

Covered within the confines of this book are all of the major parts of constructing an essay: a solid foundational introduction, a consideration of the audience which is focused on quite a bit throughout the book, a foray into the writing process, a focus on the thesis, arguments, style, and much more.

Even provided at the end of the book are additional sample essays and writing prompts which serve to further one’s practice.

In its totality this book offers a lot of ideas for consideration in respects to writing.  Cioffi’s unique and no-holds bared approach serves to engage the reader quite saliently, also providing a veritable mixture of do’s and don’ts that are not only practical but useful.

Cioffi created an absolute masterpiece in the field of creative argumentation, and for that he should be applauded at length.
