ATWOOD - "A Toiler's Weird Odyssey of Deliverance"-AVAILABLE
NOW FOR KINDLE (INCLUDING KINDLE COMPUTER APPS) FROM
CCJ Publisher Rick Alan Rice dissects
the building of America in a trilogy of novels
collectively calledATWOOD. Book One explores
the development of the American West through the
lens of public policy, land planning, municipal
development, and governance as it played out in one
of the new counties of Kansas in the latter half of
the 19th Century. The novel focuses on the religious
and cultural traditions that imbued the American
Midwest with a special character that continues to
have a profound effect on American politics to this
day. Book One creates an understanding about
America's cultural foundations that is further
explored in books two and three that further trace
the historical-cultural-spiritual development of one
isolated county on the Great Plains that stands as
an icon in the development of a certain brand of
American character. That's the serious stuff viewed
from high altitude. The story itself gets down and
dirty with the supernatural, which inATWOOD

offering another novel through Amazon's Kindle
Direct Publishing service. Cooksin is the story of a criminal
syndicate that sets its sights on a ranching/farming
community in Weld County, Colorado, 1950. The
perpetrators of the criminal enterprise steal farm
equipment, slaughter cattle, and rob the personal
property of individuals whose assets have been
inventoried in advance and distributed through a
vast system of illegal commerce.
It is a ripping good
yarn, filled with suspense and intrigue. This was
designed intentionally to pay homage to the type of
creative works being produced in 1950, when the
story is set. Richard
Padilla has done his usually brilliant
work in capturing the look and feel of a certain
type of crime fiction being produced in that era.
The whole thing has the feel of those black & white
films you see on Turner Movie Classics, and the
writing will remind you a little of Elmore Leonard,
whose earliest works were westerns.

World Wide Conspiracy
Who's What in the World of Worry
In this edition,
we are dipping into X-Files territory and exploring the popular culture's
fascination with conspiracy theories and strange, unexplained phenomenon, which
may portend something significant about our future on the planet.
There is no real
single doorway to this labyrinth, just a Grand Central Station of intersecting
theories, speculations, and reports. Some are scientific and well-grounded, some
are mainstream media reports, and many are the wild amateur regurgitations of
the echo chamber of public paranoia that is a staple of YouTube, in all of its
There is no
particular rhyme-nor-reason to the way these various areas of interest are
presented on this page. We have left some hints as to which we take seriously,
and which we take less so, but the purpose of this survey is primarily to
provide a high altitude overview of those public fascinations that reflect who we are as
a people, and that are impacting the decisions we participate in making through
our democratic processes (In the U.S.).
to the definition of "conspiracy", you must first consider its root word:
"conspire". Conspire can be used as a transitive verb, in which case it means
"to plot or contrive".
Or, conspire can be used as an intransitive verb, as in:
"to join in a secret agreement to do an unlawful or wrongful act or an
act which becomes unlawful as a result of the secret agreement • accused of
conspiring to overthrow the government • conspired to monopolize and restrict
or "to act in harmony toward a common end".

Primary Conspiracy Themes
theory comes in many flavors, but there are two general themes:
Humans are being controlled by malevolent forces
Nothing we are told, or have ever been told, by the mainstream media is
Malevolent forces includes everything from "The Illuminati" and governmental
institutions, to aliens from other worlds and other dimensions, to Satan.
Mistrust of mainstream media is an extension of the control wielded by
powerful, omnipresent forces, who are countered daily by the alternative media
broadcast via the internet, and particularly through YouTube.com.
All Conspiracies Lead to the
Illuminati, the Rothschilds, and the New World Order
When I was a kid there was another kid I
was growing up with whose father was devoted to the John Birch Society (JBS). Still around today,
the JBS is an ultra-conservative group that was founded in 1958, and was quite
popular among Cold War-era conservatives until mainstream conservatives like
William F. Buckley used his National Review to get the group tarred as
radicals, too far to the right to properly represent the conservative movement.
My parent's friend left this book called "None Dare Call It
Conspiracy", which was written by ultra-conservative radio personality Gary
Allen. Allen, like the speaker in this 1967 recording explaining the whole
history of "The Illuminati", an intellectual society found in Bavaria in the
second half of the 18th Century, believed that the root of all evil was the one
world government movement, which sounded to them like Communism. The mighty
House of Rothschild is behind it all, which is hard to argue against in terms of
that family's powerful history in the financial fortunes of world governments
over the past 250 years, beginning with the Napoleonic Wars.
Whether or not you buy this notion that a powerful cabal,
involving the powerful Rothschilds, the Freemasons, the Communists, and the
United Nations is attempting to rest complete control of the world, this
recording is a dynamite artifact of cultural history - like listening to your
wacky uncle going on about evil.

9/11: Conspiracy Live
realm of this thing we call "conspiracy theory" got rocket-fueled by the
September 11, 2001 event that we know as "9/11", that brought down The World
Trade Center buildings, destroyed a section of the Pentagon, and left a
suspicious smudge on the countryside of Pennsylvania. There heroic Americans
brought down their terrorist-hijacked jetliner, saving the nation from
experiencing the destruction of some additional national symbol.
One hardly needed to be steeped in
conspiracy theory to find a raft of anomalies in the 9/11 story, any one of
which makes the entire event seem seriously suspicious. For instance, how is that
airplanes - hardly more than hollow aluminum tubes - managed to slice right
through two of the most advanced pieces of architecture in the modern world and
turn 110-story buildings into dust? That is the official narrative, but clearly that is not what
actually happened. It was obvious to everyone on the scene, and covering the
story on national TV that day, that those buildings were brought down by controlled demolition.
That included Building 7 of the WTC, which was not struck by an airplane, but
somehow also came down, mysteriously comporting with the expectation of news
reporters, who seemed to know in advance that the building would "be pulled", even though the building suffered only fires contained to a few
floors. Building 7 was a key office space that housed federal investigators, the files from the ENRON investigation,
and New York City's emergency command center. In fact, many records of critical
importance to investigations were destroyed on 9/11, including records at the Pentagon into the investigation of trillions of
dollars of unaccounted-for Pentagon spending, which just happened to be stored
in precisely the area of the building that was destroyed by another hi-jacked
passenger jet, at least according to the official story.
Never in history have steel
structures buildings collapsed due to fire and crumbled into dust before ever
reaching the ground, and never have airplanes crashed and completely
disintegrated to nothing, as four airplanes supposedly did on that day. Use this

Jr., pretty much sealed, in the public mind, this notion that dark forces were
at work behind the scenes to alter human history.

from diabolical CIA operatives and murderous elected officials to aliens with
connections to the United States government and secret agendas.

anything been more effective than the History Channel's "Ancient Aliens" series
at mobilizing audiences to believe that everything we have been taught to
believe is wrong? Based largely on the disputed theories of researchers Erich von Däniken and Zecharia
Sitchin, Ancient Aliens encourages audiences to eschew mainstream science
and religion and open up to the possibility that humankind is a hybrid species
genetically engineered for Earth by alien humanoids. Moreover, the series
suggests that governments around the world have been complicit in a conspiracy
to cover up the truth about who "we" are. In that way, it is among the most
subversive programs ever presented on American television.
The Elder Gods Versus the Ancient Ones
When Erich von Däniken
began publishing his interpretations of various aspects of civilizations'
archaeological record, he literally changed the world. A former hotel worker
whose fascinations took him around the world to ancient sites that would become
known worldwide because of his writings - the Nazca Plains being a prime example
- von Däniken boldly proposed that Biblical references to God and to angels were
really to advanced extraterrestrials who tampered with life on "our planet".
Sitchin took von Däniken's basic thesis many steps further, as Sitchin's
claims all came from his own interpretations of ancient Sumerian cuneiform
tablets. There are many of those, but few who have deciphered their meanings -
and fewer yet who agree on the interpretations that have been done, including
His reading of the Sumerian tablets tells of an
advanced race of spacefaring giants called the Anunaki, who arrived on Earth
450,000 years ago to mine the planet's gold. They were trying to repair the
atmosphere of their home planet through Geo-engineering involving gold, which
has unique and powerful properties in terms of managing the sun's radiation and
conducting electrical charges.
On Earth, the Anunaki (the "Elder
Gods" in some references) encountered a race referred to as the "Ancient Ones",
which were reptilian humanoids native to Earth, which some believe explains why
reptilian iconography is so prominent in virtually every culture on our planet.
They were led by their Queen Tiamat, who is described in the Sumerian text as "a
great wicked serpent" or "mighty dragon". The Anunaki deposed the Ancient Ones,
but they apparently also interbred with them, because their joint DNA went into
the makeup of us, modern humans.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Is it
possible that this is what Carl Sagan was alluding to in his Pulitzer Prize
winning book "The Dragons of Eden", which describes the "reptilian cortex" at
the foundation of the human brain?
The triumphant Anunaki, according to Sitchin,
interbred with primitive humans to create a hybrid slave species to work the
mining operations. Continued breeding with humans created the race of Nephilim
referenced in the Bible, which were part of the reason the Anunaki created the
floods referenced in many ancient literatures, which wiped all but a few
families off the Earth and thus allowed humankind to begin fresh again,
The Anunaki story goes that there
was a split among them, after which most left the planet, while others literally
went underground, where they have continued to exert control of the human race
through royal bloodlines, "blue bloods" such as have historically ruled the
thrones of Europe.
Or, as others might have you believe, they exert
control over humans through the manipulation of a frequency matrix, which still
others believe is broadcast over planet Earth from our hollow moon. It
encourages humans to accept the reality they present. In that sense, these
shape-shifting, cross-dimensional reptile overlords are the ultimate incarnation
of "The Illuminati", comprising the most power families on the planet.

Chemtrails and Transhumanism
Elana Freeland is a spiritual warrior who researches the ionization of
the atmosphere, which she believes is taking place through the spraying of
aluminum, barium and strontium into Earth's lower atmosphere. To her, it is all
part of the "globalism" agenda, a "full spectrum dominance" that has
militarized university research in the "national security state". Freeland
suspects the Freemasons and other secret organizations are using ionization of
the atmosphere to produce extreme weather, and that they have agendas
involving vaccinations, genetically
modified organisms, water quality, immune system degeneration, acid oceans,
dying species, alkanized soil, mind control and targeting, Morgellons syndrome, and transhumanism, all
of which are connected in her world.
Agenda 21/2030 and Sustainable Development
which was initially known as Agenda 21, is a United Nations "sustainable
development" plan, adopted in 2015 and signed on to by something like 107 world
leaders. It sets
17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that you can review by using that
link to the UN site. Clean water, educational opportunity, and economic equality
seem good enough, but to conspiracy theorists like Elana Freeland, Agenda 2030
is nothing less than an effort to create global communism, and redistribute
wealth, as Glenn Beck was going on about back in 2011. That probably only
sounds like a bad idea if you are wealthy.
Chemtrails and Strange Orbs
So is this real?
That is the question we always ask in our modern age, whenever we encounter a
digital image of any kind. It is so easy to create convincing fakes of any kind
of phenomena, and in the internet age of content development people grab what
they find interesting and republish it for their own purposes, similar to what
we are doing with this edition. In this video below, a no-doubt well-meaning sky
watcher examines some interesting video. California skies are filled these days
with strange thick lines, exactly as shown in this video. We see what appear to
be four-engine commercial jets flying overhead and leaving these thick rivers of
white that do not dissipate, but rather stay in the cloud for hours, slowly
spreading a veil of particulate cloud matter. Some YouTube broadcasters claim to have visual evidence that these
chemtrail producing jets are not airplanes at all, but rather are holographic
images shielding orbs that are producing these trails.
This video below takes it one step further, with
orbs spotted in the clouds apparently shooting something additional into them.
Who knows if this video is legitimate? It plays into
a theory that chemtrails are the work of an alien civilization that is
Geo-engineering Earth to make it suitable for their habitation.
people in the world suffer from this strange "disease", dubbed Morgellon's after an Oakland scientists whose family

produce fibrous materials.
For years, sufferers were treated as if they have a
mental illness - that they scratch lesions into their skin, and scratch clothing
fibers into the lesions. Scientific research has shown that these fibers coming
from people's open sores are not a match for any other known fibrous material.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) did a study and
concluded that the disease is not real, but they treat it at the Mayo Clinic.

Matrix and Reptilians
David Icke has been a pioneer in the world of conspiracy, and has worn
a few crowns over the years, but he has gotten his best traction with the
connection between the matrix (control device, which he feels is generated from
our hollow moon, which is really a space ship) and a shape-shifting Reptilian
race that controls the world's governmental and financial seats of power. The blue bloods, in Icke's
world, are hereditary rulers whose reptilian bloodline goes back to the beings who
engineered the human race. The Royal Family of England is largely comprised of
these extra-dimensional creatures (but not the bastard Prince Harry).
Is Earth a Prison Planet?
Sometimes it feels like it, right?
While the David Icke's of the world believe that
humankind is imprisoned by a control matrix, there are other speculators who
share this theme of planet Earth being a holding pen of some kind. The story of
Scientology involves the stranding of negative spirits (Thetans) on Earth. And
there is no shortage of YouTube videos exploring similar themes.
Many of these have Christian themes, pitting
prison planet Earth as a battleground for control of the human soul. In this
video, the Gnostic Gospels are explored for reference to a control group of
aliens called the Archons, who are not dissimilar to David Icke's Reptoid
US Moon Landing wasFaked
Back in 1969,
the world watched enthralled as two American astronauts landed and walked out
onto the surface of Earth's moon. We saw it in grainy feeds from NASA, and
listened to the crackling communications between Mission Control and the three
astronauts aboard the Apollo 11 spacecraft. But it wasn't too long before people
started questioning the entire venture, particularly after the last of the
scheduled Apollo flights were canceled, and our trips to the Moon stopped
happening. Rumors spread that NASA had conceded that they had no way to pass
astronauts through the Van Allen Radiation Belt and have them survive to journey
on to the Moon. The Soviets had five times more experience with space travel
than the US, and they never tried to send a man to the moon. And people began to
closely exam the NASA footage of Apollo landings, and began to wonder if a
master filmmaker could convincingly fake the whole thing. In 1968, Director
Stanley Kubrick had released 2001: A Space Odyssey,
which gave audiences of the era their sense for what a telecast from the moon
would look like. And it didn't help that the Apollo astronauts were defensive in
response to questions, and in the case of the ultimate astronaut, Neil
Armstrong, seemed to want to wipe the entire experience out of his memory. Years
later, while accepting an award at the White House, he uttered a cryptic comment
about a future when "truths protective layers" will be removed.
Alien Structures on the Moon, Mars and Beyond
On the flip
side, there are also books detailing the Apollo moon landings and the
photography flyovers that revealed alien structures, and even current alien
activity on Earth's moon. All of the moon landing stuff is touched on in the
Why Would NASA Fake a Moon Landing?
John F. Kennedy declared the goal of putting a man on the moon by the end of the
decade of the 1970s, he was speaking as the leader of the US in a Cold War with
the very advanced Soviet Union. It might have been helpful for the US to show
some technological muscle of its own by beating the Soviets to the Moon. But 50
years later, NASA is still talking about our inability to get past the Van Allen
Radiation Belt, or otherwise get beyond low Earth orbit. So how is it we went to
the Moon back in 1969? NASA claims to have lost the technology. They don't even
have the telemetry data from the Moon missions. Somehow they have lost the
scientific record of the greatest achievement of mankind. Is that possible, or
was there nothing to lose?

Black Ops Shooting in Las Vegas
2017, someone executed automatic weapons fire on a group of concert goers at a
Country Music festival on festival grounds across the street from the Mandalay
Bay resort in Las Vegas. According to reports, 58 people were killed by a man
identified as Stephen Paddock, who
died on the scene of a gunshot wound.
The Las Vegas shooting is still under
investigation and authorities still have not come up with an explanation for
what happened. Multiple witnesses reported multiple shooters. Paddock was found
dead, surrounded by weapons and ammunition. He had somehow broken the thick
glass in his complimentary room without setting off security sensors, and opened
fire on the crowd hundreds of yards away across the street using rifles equipped with bump stocks. The audio from the event clearly
indicates shots coming from something other than a modified rifle.
YouTube conspiracy nuts went nuts over the
inconsistencies and contradictions of the accounts of this story. Here
conspiracy theory specialist Jeff Rense does an interview with a skeptic of the
early, official accounts of what happened. YouTube is filled with "researchers"
with "proof" that the Las Vegas shootings were not the work of a mad gunman,
with all suggesting that the CIA, the Israeli Mossad, and ISIS all had a hand in
the seemingly purposeless event.
Sandy Hook and Gun Control
In 2012, a kid
named Adam Lanza killed his mother
and then barged into Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut and killed 20 school
children and six adults. It was a weird story from the first, with almost
nothing adding up, leading some to believe the entire event was a staged hoax.
For people who think Sandy Hook was a hoax, the
whole event was staged at a school that was no longer in use for the purpose of
mobilizing gun control activists. There are death certificates of the children
killed in the shooting available from the local jurisdiction, but that hasn't
stopped conspiracy theorists from questioning the whole story.
They note that parents of Sandy Hook children
leveraged the event to put together a for-profit organization to promote school
This video compiles and reviews information
gathered at the time. It presents video information that makes it look like a
staged event, or possibly a drill of some kind, but not a real school shooting.
There seem obviously to be actors at work, ranging from the parents of murdered
children, to heroic neighbors, to that very strange coroner who suggested that
something could come crashing down on the Sandy Hook community as a result of
whatever happened at this school.
Who Is Dan Flynn and Why Is He Saying Those Weird Things?
There are a bunch of famous people named Dan Flynn.
There is a conservative writer by that name, and the head of U.S. Soccer is a
Dan Flynn. And then there is the Dan Flynn who has a YouTube channel and
publishes long (hour-plus) mish-mash videos that string together sections of
other videos to make some kind of a point, but not necessarily the ones he uses
to title his videos. These include:
Reptilians - Climate Change's Real Reason
Reptilians - The Alien Race Here on Earth
The Secret Underground Reptilian Cities of Lore
The Secret ET Alien Invasion
Space, It's All a Hoax - NASA = Never A Space Adventure?
Flynn's exercises in video editing leave a curious viewer
feeling mighty frustrated, because Flynn offers no connecting narrative to
explain why what he is showing fulfills the promise of each video's title. But
he does have a sense of humor. He uses brief videos of a cat saying "hey" in a
human voice, which brings things into a more comfortable perspective, and
individuals that pop up occasionally to ask if you are prepared for the alien
invasion. It is not quite entertainment, not original content, and certainly not
authoritative insight into the challenges confronting Earth;s future. But for
people who just like killing time listening to creepy alien stuff, it is there
for the taking.

resonated most dramatically in the popular imagination.
Operation Northwoods was a proposed false flag
operation against the Cuban government that originated within the U.S.
Department of Defense (DoD) and the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) of the
United States government in 1962. The proposals called for the Central
Intelligence Agency (CIA) or other U.S. government operatives to commit
acts of terrorism against American civilians and military targets,
blaming it on the Cuban government, and using it to justify a war
against Cuba. The plans detailed in the document included the possible
assassination of Cuban émigrés, sinking boats of Cuban refugees on the
high seas, hijacking planes, blowing up a U.S. ship, and orchestrating
violent terrorism in U.S. cities. The proposals were rejected by the
The plan was drafted by
the Joint Chiefs of Staff, signed by Chairman Lyman Lemnitzer and sent
to the Secretary of Defense. Although part of the U.S. government's
anti-communist Cuban Project, Operation Northwoods was never officially
accepted; it was authorized by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, but then
rejected by President John F. Kennedy. According to currently released
documentation, none of the operations became active under the auspices
of the Operation Northwoods proposals.
