In his initial foray, Crossfire – The Plot That Killed Kennedy, Marrs cemented himself as a top-tier caliber researcher not afraid to question the official narrative, and rightly so.  From there, in Rule By Secrecy, Marrs followed suit connecting the dots between the secret societies known as Freemasons, The Trilateral Commission with the mysterious Great Pyramids, and even more.  Marrs’ insatiable thirst for mystery showed us with The Rise Of The Fourth Reich that there were not only malignant fascist elements embedded deep within America, but they remain unchecked, as the blatant rise of fascism is taking hold will show.  Population Control showed us that the comptrollers have a completely different plan that doesn’t involve most of the global populace.

Now, in The Illuminati, Marrs continues his high level of research exposing what is arguably the most well known secret society of them all: The Illuminati.

The book delves into (1) the Origins of the order in a rather extensive overview.  It also covers how (2) Germany, (3) Zionism, (4) Freemasons, all connect.  From there, how the (5) Church connects into this is given a cursory glance.   The (6) Methodology employed by the Illuminati is covered in reasonable fashion, while the (7) Suppression of the order is also examined.  What role the Illuminati played in the (8) Revolutions of France, America and Russia is reviewed, while the (9) Modern Illuminati and its influences in (10) Pop Culture as gone through as well.

Overall, the evolution of the order is catalogued quite well by Marrs, as well as many of the implications therein.  Many avenues of information are examined, some more than others, but a vast array of information is brought to bear for incisive individuals to follow upon.

Given that humanity is at a crossroads between a tsunami of fake news and a vortex of deception with many hidden agendas behind the scenes, one of the main values of this book will be in individuals coming to realize that there is in fact veracity to some of what they hear about the Illuminati.

Even so, there is one fact that needs to be underscored.  Given the myriad sources that Marrs used, one noteworthy contention regarding the book is that Marrs did not actually use his usual footnote system as he always did in the past.  In previous books, at the end of the chapters, Mars would cite with utmost precision where a particular quote or piece of data was sourced from.  Unfortunately, here, that isn’t the case.  That felt like a huge let down considering that anyone who wishes to verify the veracity of such a convoluted topic, or follow it up with additional research won’t be able to know with precision where the information was collated from.  That is also one of the leading reasons why Marrs is so respected.  As such, it was very unlike Mars to do as much.  For what it’s worth, Marrs does have a “Further Reading” and an Index in the book.  But that doesn’t even come close for not putting exact sources in the book of this magnitude.

Be that as it may, The Illuminati will be an indispensable resource for understanding our current world and how many of the systemic issues have come about.  Anyone who has ever contemplated how this has historically taken place needs to read this book.  All who have read any of Marrs’ work know what to expect.  For those that haven’t, this is an excellent starting point.  But realize the trails that the author has shed light upon are merely starting point.

Book Review: Genes, Giants, Monsters & Men by Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.

January 26, 2017

Dr. Farrell tends to write some books in trilogies.  This particular book, Genes, Giants, Monsters & Men which is the second in this particular series, would be the follow up to The Cosmic War, which he wrote previously to this.

Farrell’s book, Cosmic War [Review Here], which is intriguing in its implications and breathtaking in scope, laid the foundation for this particular series in a rather scholarly manner.  In Genes, Giants, Monsters & Men Farrell continues his scholarly analysis into what the proceeding events after that particular war in antiquity took place.

The author makes it a note of showing how there are two sets of descendants related to those who waged the Cosmic War.  One side has made a stride to attempt to showcase history for what it is, while the other side not only manipulated historical events as they take place in trenchant and disturbing ways, but also is making a point to obfuscate real history in myriad ways.

Throughout the book, Dr. Farrell showcases many historical oddities, and also some downright suppressions that have taken place throughout history.  In his usual incisive, analytical, and well-argued manner, Farrell pulls the threads of historical elements that might seem disparate at first, but are in fact ‘joined at the hip’ so to speak.

Regarding the historical and ongoing suppression of this type of data and it’s implications, the author cogently relates:

“It is when Cremo and Thompson’s careful scholarship is viewed within the context of deeper allegations of archaeological suppression that other more disturbing philosophical and speculative implications emerge, for the bottom line is that both the archaeological suppression of “convenient forgetting” and the dogma of evolution would seem to be tailor-made devices to suppress the ideas of the great antiquity of man and the possibility of a previously existing Very High Civilization.  Viewed in this light, it is impossible that the scientific theory functions as an “evidence screening mechanism” for scientists not privy to the ultimate agenda: the suppression of the very notion of such a civilization, and therefore any attempt to investigate it by the hoi polloi.  One might indeed be dealing with a “public consumption” biology, anthropology, and archaeology to parallel the “public consumption” physics deliberately designed to prevent the recovery of lost technologies and science.   Clearly, if our examination of the I Ching and DNA are any indicator, this would appear to be the case.”[1][2][Bold Emphasis Added]

This particular book offers a thought-provoking synthesis of ancient technology, genetic engineering, mind control technologies, examinations of giants as reported from credible sources from various cultures throughout history, DNA coupled with the I-Ching, historical suppression as well as much MUCH more.

Two other additional noteworthy subjects covered by Farrell are The Gate of Babylon and The Surrush, both of which have potentially mindbending implications.

In its full breadth and scope, this book challenges official history at every turn and rightly so.  Official history should be challenged, because evidence keeps piling up which shows humanity is being lied to at a very large scale.  If such readings as Farrell are anywhere near the truth, then not only is history vastly different than what the conventional narrative claims, but also history should be gazed upon again through another lens.

Book Review: Our Occulted History by Jim Marrs

Our Occulted History is a phenomenal venture into the beginnings of ancient history, into the beginnings of an alternative history.

Jim Marrs, in this particular book, leaves no unturned, leaves no vault unchecked in his search for the origins of certain modern conspiracies.

Taking an approach that’s as deep in scope, as it is wide in breadth, Marrs trenchantly makes known mountains of evidence beginning from ancient antiquity all the way to our modern times which forms a vastly different structure of history than what we as a society have been taught.

Sampling research from heavyweight researchers such as Oxford educated Dr. Joseph P. Farrell, Zecharia Sitchin, Robert Bauval, Linda Moulton Howe, Philip Coppens, Robert Schoch, Michael Cremo, and many more, the author infuses the book with hundreds of verifiable data points.  That in and of itself might not seem like much, but when viewed from a larger point of view all of these dots and how Marrs connects them show how all this seemingly disparate information interconnects seamlessly.

Marrs covers wide-ranging subjects such as sacred geometry, the Sumerians, lost probes, the moon, forbidden archaeology, Tesla suppression, Coral Castle, Atlantis, the Dogon tribe, ancient civilizations of many types, Big Money, the Rothschilds, Rockefellers, Big Pharma, mainstream media, and dozens of others, to make a sound case that there is an occulted history to the human race, and its far more magnificent, and troubling than what most people could imagine.

That shouldn’t be surprising given how interconnected the media is to the establishment.

Speaking troublesomely about this lock-down information grid, Jim Keith notes in his landmark book Mass Control: Engineering Human Consciousness, citing the work of author G. William Domhoff in The Higher Circles:

The power elite have created and developed that wonderful field of public relations on an incredible scale.  Some of the early practitioners of this art helped scrub up the images of the ‘Robber Barons’ families; others specialized in the corporate image and the corporate image and corporate conscience.  Functionally speaking, the public relations departments of large corporations, in conjunction with the giant public relations firms that service many corporations, have become the early warning system of the upper class, picking up and countering the slightest remark or publication that makes funny lines on their sensitive radar.  Thanks to them public opinion is well-monitored, with an assist of course from the alert social scientists in certain university institutes financed by the big corporations and foundations.  wayward opinions, once detected, are duly corrected by a barrage of printed matter and public pronouncement…”[1]

Keeping everything discussed in mind, Marrs offers us a veritable glimpse into the annals of ancient past.  Admittedly, there is only so much an author can do, but Marrs more than pulled his weight.

Whether or not the reader will agree with his thesis, that being that the elite are covering up evidence of ancient aliens since ancient times, is up to the reader.  What can in fact be said without dispute is that humanity does in fact have an Occulted History and its implications are profoundly disturbing, even if Marrs main thesis is disagreed upon.

Book Review: The Mysterious Origins Of Hybrid Man by Susan B. Martinez Ph.D

August 8, 2016

The Mysterious Origins Of Hybrid Man by Susan B. Martinez Ph.D is a reasonable book that calls into question the conventional tenet of evolution.

Martinez carries out an extensive view into many of the myths that have been propounded regarding evolution, and buttresses her argument in a sound and cogent manner.

The fact that the author uses extensive references also helps quite a bit.

Although this book is quite interesting, it feels that it could have accomplished more because it seems the author takes a one dimensional view into analyzing certain evidence.

For instance, to argue her thesis the author argues that “little people” were quite common in the past.  There’s nothing wrong with this.  The problem arises from it getting more focus within her book than the topic of ‘giants’ in his ancient history.

There are reliable authors such as Michael Cremo, and others, who have come out showing evidence of there being skeletons of giants in ancient history, and it would have been more balanced if the author covered this part at length rather than giving it a cursory glance.

While the author at one point touches upon Cremo for an instant, she never even bothers delving into his magnum opus Forbidden Archeology, which is chock full of reliable archeological data that destroys the foundation of ancient history better than any other book out there.

The author does argue that much of civilization along the pacific, and even in part of the Americas stems from a mass migration after/during ancient Lemuria’s downfall.   That argument of hers, which is quite strong, has also been argued quite well given the evidence she showcases to argue that component of her thesis.

In totality, the book is a pretty good book, but it could have been far better if Martinez would have delved into other areas to look at all evidence available taking a multidimensional approach rather than view history through one lens.

Book Review: DNA Of The Gods by Chris H. Hardy Ph.D

DNA Of The Gods by Chris H. Hardy Ph.D. is a highly intriguing and informative book that analyzes not only the roots of civilization, but also goes beyond that and into understanding the realm of the modern psyche that stems from those ancient times.

Hardy further shows that we – humanity – were arguably engineered by ancient “gods” that infused part of their DNA to help mold us into who we became at the time.  While this might seem outlandish at first blush, the author uses many sacred texts, from Sumerian, Akkadian, Babylonian and more, to argue her thesis that Tiamat/Eve and Adam/Adamu were in fact the first stable successes carried out by Anunnaki geneticist Ninmah, who was assisted by Hermes and Enki at the time.

The author also makes it a point to show how women have been seen as inferior because of the very events that took place in those ancient times and how they were used by later writers/editors to mold the events – conveniently – into those that take place in The Book [Bible] et al.

Furthermore, the book shows a portion of [ancient] history that is unknown to most people as it isn’t taught in schools, which certainly seems to be truthful.

Another interesting point is that, although the ancient Anunnaki were technologically advanced, they were not infallible.   In fact, many of these beings such as Enlil and his cohorts had a penchant for jealousy, anger, emotion-laden outbursts of all kinds, war and much more.

Also appreciated is the fact the author uses the work of Zecharia Sitchin to buttress her arguments is quite appreciated.  As an open minded skeptic, have always appreciated Sitchin’s work and Hardy’s follows suit, adding her own flavor of course.

This particular book offers more than enough information into the ample evidence that has been unearthed that destroys the mainstream narrative of how humanity came to be.  With that said, the author still goes further into the realm of the psyche to show how these past events have molded many aspects of our inner selfs, our core beings.  This has therein had highly deleterious issues in society and the author also gets into much of that and such.

All in all, this book offers a bold and distinctive view into the history of the past – our ancient history.  This, coupled with the fact that the book is chock full of reliable sources, and is written in a cogent, intriguing and yet deep manner makes this book highly worth reading.

If you happen to read this book, and enjoy it, the best part about it is that Hardy’s ‘follow up’ book, Wars Of The Anunnaki – Nuclear Self-Destruction In Ancient-Sumer is actually better in my opinion.  So if you enjoy this, follow up with that one.  You will not be disappointed.

Book Review: Latitude 33 – Key To The Kingdom – The Arcane Science & Hermetic Engineering Of The Happiest Place On Earth by Walter Bosley

Latitude 33:Key To The Kingdom – The Arcane Science & Hermetic Engineering Of The Happiest Place On Earth [Revised Edition] by Walter Bosley is an absolute foray into the more esoteric aspects that revolve within Disney land.

There are many fascinating aspect of this search Bosley provides us with.

For starters, the particular latitude at which this theme park resides in will spark the flames of curiosity in those seekers of hidden knowledge.  That particular ‘hidden in plain sight’ aspect of the park is most probably not by coincidence either.  But that’s up to you to decide.

Bosley make’s it quite clear, as he has done in many of his other groundbreaking books series such as Hidden Missions & the Empire Of The Wheel series, the information is for you – the reader – to judge by yourself.  He is merely providing many facts, with a lot of reasonable theories, coupled with intriguing questions in order to provide the canvas that might lay the foundation for some deep thinking.

The exploration carried out book deals with the activation of consciousness via esoteric knowledge.  This is put forth with a view into the works of known Tesla, the [unknown?] C.V. Wood, as well as glances into how this all dovetails not only with Stanford Research Institute, but also the Mind Science Foundation.

Some specific personnel within these establishments are taken a gander at [looked into] due to their field of expertise.  That alone should give one pause given the possibilities that could arise from such crossing of paths so to speak.

Within his venture into the abstruse, the author also sifts through data from a variety of other fields.  These in include a cursory glance at the work of Dr. Joseph P. Farrell where applicable as well as the works of David Hatcher Childress, as well as the work of Sesh Heri regarding Ley Line energies as he details in his book The Handprint Of Atlas.

Furthermore, not only does Bosley also delve into the more older [and cautionary] aspects of the modern versions of the Disney stories that are commonplace within society today such as Snow White, Pinocchio, Alice in Wonderland, but he also couples that to the other esoteric layers that these stories are connected too.  Elements within those stories as well as others litter the landscape of Disney offering even more synchronicities to the already coincidence-heavy theme park.

Other notable subjects that merge within this book revolve around the tapping into of other possible dimensions given the technological aspect of it, but also alchemy, fairy folklore, hauntings, occult symbols, transcendental alchemy, and much much more.

All of this centers upon King Arthur’s Carrousel.

The placement of this particular apparatus, given its precise accuracy among a triple ley line conversion, that’s located at the 33 degree latitude [synchronicity alert!], would have had the capability of transmuting consciousness in various ways.

Is all of this just ‘random’ information plucked from the air by the author, or is there something more tangible here?

Personally, knowing how much of our history has been kept from us [after all, knowledge is power, and lack of knowledge is lack of power], and knowing how many ancient sites, and even modern ones, are located within precise points on the globe that could possibly tap into telluric energy, it would stretch the mind to think its merely coincidence.

Now, is that strong evidence for what the author alleges?  That’s for you to decide.

Someone, somewhere though, in modern history as well as in ancient times aligned these structures – that in many cases took great effort to create given the hundreds of tons some of these stone weigh that we can’t even do now – to carry out something rather extremely unusual.  And those sights number in the dozens, aligned with mathematical precision that boggles the mind.  Another coincidence?  Up to you to decide.

That’s not to say that was attempted via King Arthur’s Carrousel was also attempted in other ancient/modern sites.  Was only stating that the use of the ley [telluric] lines was not only tapped into, but magnified for its use.

A more interesting question is, if what the book hypothesizes is possible, is there any places such as this out there that are accessible and were created in more modern times?  How would they be used?  Has the technology advanced?

It would be a shame if there wasn’t, but then again, technology and its uses are only as good as those who stand behind it, and for great progress to take place great individuals – visionaries, as the author mentions – are needed.

It’s sad to see Walt Disney’s legacy descend into the dismal state it has in some areas in the last few decades.  It hasn’t been without a concerted effort either.

With that said however, the fact that it really was a great place to visit [‘the happiest place on earth’] early on shows what’s possible when a true visionary goes to work.

We can only hope more visionaries shed light amidst these troublesome times.     

 

Book Review: Secret Missions 2: The Lost Expeditions Of Sir Francis Burton by Walter Bosley

December 31, 2015

In his second book in the ‘Secret Mission’ series, Walter Bosley takes us on an adventure that’s quite breathtaking as it is thought provoking.

Secret Missions 2: The Lost Expeditions Of Sir Francis Burton is a strong sequel to the first book Secret Missions: The Hidden Legacy Of Old California, which was just as dynamite as this one.

Bosley begins by building the background for the case that Burton – as an agent of multiple institutions – carries out a classic ‘op within an op’ that covert circles are littered with.

From locale to locale facts are explored & synthesized, thence extrapolated from rather incisively in a way that makes the reader follow the case he is making for Burton’s hunt for an ancient civilization[s?].

Burton’s extensive work is used to build the case, and many of the finer theories are inferred quite logically given the availability, and sometimes lack thereof of information. Not because the author doesn’t search, but because some of the vital data is downright classified still to this day. That begs the question: why?

What was so imperative, that long after Burton is gone, long after the world has changed over countless times, that information found in an expedition – that according to mainstream biographers didn’t take place – that took six months and countless locales still hasn’t made the light of day?

The answer to the question, and more, is the quest of Bosley.

At certain junctures, this book even dovetails slightly with his previous Secret Missions book, which goes to show how much interest the ruling powers of the day had in the civilizations of ‘high antiquity’. This is easy to see once we see the breadth and scope of the technological capabilities [megaliths, etc.], history and knowledge that could be had from the search and seizure of ancient loot, knowledge, et al.

Knowledge that could arguably set the foundation for something much more, advanced.

In any case, if you’re used to Bosley’s previous work, or fascinated in these particular subjects, this book will be a quick read for you.

The strength of this book lies in the amount of data provided by the author, which only serves to buttress his argument that much more.

Its one of those book that truly makes you wonder about how much history has been kept from us.

And better yet, what still remains out there unexplored…

Given how much of or history has been distorted, suppressed, and erased, and coupled with Bosley’s knack for the period, have a feeling myself that this and his previous book are ‘only the beginning’ of many more grounded, logical, and insightful adventures.
