**************************************

Our latest non-fiction book Debunking Holocaust Denial Theories  is the result of the disturbing trend within some sectors of society to deny, diminish or otherwise undermine the historicity of the Holocaust – that cataclysmic event that saw the extermination of some six million Jews (as in the ethno-religious group of people) by the Nazis before and during World War Two.

 

Flashback to January 1945…The entrance to Auschwitz concentration camp.

 

Besides the obvious groups like white supremacists, neo-Nazis and elements of Islamic and Christian fundamentalist communities, there is perhaps one group in the 21st Century more responsible for perpetuating the myth that the Holocaust never happened or has been vastly exaggerated: conspiracy theorists.

We can speak with some authority regarding this as, besides being filmmakers and novelists, we have written a series of controversial non-fiction books that have led to us being loosely labeled conspiracy theorists. This despite the fact that in these non-fiction titles we mainly focus on factual topics or what we term “underground knowledge” – events, strategies, campaigns, deals and programs that have been overlooked or underreported by mainstream media.

As WikiLeaks’ founder Julian Assange succinctly put it: “There are conspiracies everywhere. There are also crazed conspiracy theories. It’s important not to confuse these two.”

We generally research and write about topics supported by strong evidence substantiated in court cases, affidavits, declassified government files and the like rather than pure speculation. Important issues such as: banking fraud and high finance crimes, which decimate communities worldwide; media manipulation, which governments and corporations engage in shamelessly and which sometimes leads to unnecessary wars; medical corruption, Big Pharma, Third World poverty, the War on Drugs, the Military Industrial Complex…The list goes on.

Oftentimes, the abovementioned issues – and quite a few more besides – are conspiracy fact, or conspiracy reality, rather than theory. We believe it’s crucial that people know about these issues and understand the difference between fact and theory in this context.

So, we hear you ask, what does this have to do with denying, diminishing or otherwise undermining the historicity of the Holocaust?

Well, as authors who focus on unearthing and promoting underground knowledge, we are sometimes approached by certain types of individuals who, collectively, form a dangerous element in society. Typically, these individuals may be conspiracy theorists; often they are amateur investigators and sometimes they’re simply casual readers. The one thing they have in common is they are predisposed to regurgitating ideas they source online and debating historically-proven events – events like the Holocaust – as if they are up for debate at all.

Of course, the Internet is the perfect medium for bigots to capture naïve and impressionable minds. Often, those who buy in to the lies and misinformation these extremists spread are young, but not always.

We have written extensively about the Holocaust and its dark legacy. This no doubt explains why, in the last few years, we have received frequent emails from people – some of whom are even authors themselves – who question whether the Holocaust occurred as per the history books, and we quite often receive hate mail from anti-Semites.

If you are asking yourself whether Holocaust denial is really that big a problem outside of society’s lunatic fringes, we would urge you to think about it in the wider context. While it is probably true the numbers of official neo-Nazis and vociferous deniers are not a direct threat to rational thinking or to the historicity of the Holocaust, many people – as in a big slice of the world’s population so studies reveal – silently support such thinking and thereby buy in to this sinister underground brand of anti-Semitism. Such people usually keep their beliefs to themselves unless they are around like minds as they believe it’s not “politically correct” to talk about the “true nature” of the Jews and their so-called Holocaust industry.

It’s our assessment that support for these alternative versions of the Holocaust is far stronger than even the most frightening poll statistics show. For every one hard core neo-Nazi or outspoken anti-Semite, there are in our estimation at least 100 silent believers who have inadvertently been suckered into the twisted belief systems of the aforementioned.

DEBUNKING HOLOCAUST DENIAL THEORIES: Two Non-Jews Affirm the Historicity of the Nazi Genocide

 

*********************************************

JFK, John Lennon, Martin Luther King, Ronald Reagan, Madonna, Jodie Foster are just some of the high profile assassination victims or intended victims who have been connected with J.D. Salinger’s classic novel The Catcher in the Rye.

 

The Catcher in the Rye

 

In our book THE CATCHER IN THE RYE ENIGMA: J.D. Salinger’s Mind Control Triggering Device or a Coincidental Literary Obsession of Criminals?, we remind readers that the murderers, stalkers and their victims and targets are all either confirmed or rumored to be part of the enduring Catcher mystery. The allegation leveled at Salinger is that he craftily implanted into his book coded messages that act as post-hypnotic suggestions or mind control triggers, which, in turn, enabled CIA handlers to activate Manchurian Candidates for planned assassinations.

It could be argued that, at best, those murders are only loosely related to Catcher  for it was, after all, a critically acclaimed masterpiece and one of the biggest selling books of the 20th Century.

We expand on this in The Catcher in the Rye Enigma. Here’s an excerpt from a chapter titled ‘The argument against the Catcher conspiracy’:

Given its worldwide popularity, the fact that the book was found in the possession of a few killers – a handful at most – could just be pure coincidence.

Today, if some new Presidential assassin or serial killer had a copy of The Da Vinci Code  or a Harry Potter  book in their possession, would anyone blink? And even though religious books such as the Bible, the Qur’an (Koran) and the Torah have inspired innumerable assassins, madmen and terrorists – some well known, some not – surely that doesn’t mean there are insidious mind control programs infused in their writings?

What about John Lennon’s killer Mark David Chapman? we hear you ask.

Yes, the man was completely obsessed with the book, but then again so, too, were countless other (normal) young people around the world in the decades following its publication. Many commented they felt as if Holden Caulfield was voicing their own inner reality and the angers and frustrations they felt in their own lives. And for those who are insane, as Chapman appeared to end up, a work as brilliantly and intensely written as Salinger’s novel was bound to reach the darkest corners of their brains, encouraging those individuals to take the story too literally, or out of context, or both.

People who are mentally ill often obsess over all kinds of artworks – such as Michael Jackson’s music, Stanley Kubrick’s movies or Andy Warhol’s paintings – believing there are dark messages embedded in those works, instructing them to kill. It’s simply a case of criminal minds latching on to warped ideas and dark concepts in popular culture. And certainly Catcher is not the only novel to inspire murders, and it won’t be the last.

As Aidan Doyle wrote on December 16, 2003 in a Salon.com article entitled When books kill: “A copy of ‘The Turner Diaries’ was found in Timothy McVeigh’s car when he was arrested. The novel was written by a leader of the National Alliance and tells the story of a white supremacist group that overthrows the government and subsequently eradicates nonwhites as well as race traitors. The narrator destroys FBI headquarters by detonating a truck loaded with ammonium nitrate and fuel oil. McVeigh used a similar mechanism to destroy the federal building in Oklahoma City, killing 168 people.”

The same article also mentions it’s not just books that have inspired killings. “A $246 million lawsuit was lodged against the makers of the game Grand Theft Auto III by the families of two people shot by teenagers allegedly inspired by the game. Such movies as ‘Natural Born Killers,’ ‘A Clockwork Orange’ and ‘Money Train’ have routinely been accused of inspiring copycat crimes.”

It has been estimated more than 100,000,000 people have read Catcher. With only a few crazy incidents attributed to it, you could reasonably argue this is not a bad record and certainly isn’t enough to justify outlandish conspiracy theories.

*************************************************

A March 2015 blog on debunking of the Big Bang Theory, and God’s role in that momentous event, remains our most popular posting to date here in Morcan Books & Films blog…so we figure it’s worth running again. Here it is, in its entirety…

Debunking of the Big Bang Theory leads to questions about God’s role in creation of the universe

Posted: March 5, 2015 in Underground Knowledge

It appears the universe may not have started with a BANG! That is if the latest science challenging the notion of the Big Bang Theory is correct.

This revelation has gotten members of our ‘Underground Knowledge’ discussion group on Goodreads.com fairly worked up, with those of an atheistic or scientific bent butting heads with those of a religious persuasion as members debate the role of God in the creation of the universe.

It (the discussion that is) all began with a comment by a group moderator. He drew attention to a news item that quotes a theoretical physicist as declaring new research suggests the age of the universe could be infinite. That same article quotes another scientist as declaring “We (scientists) really have no right to say that the universe begins with a big bang.”

The news item referred to is at: https://au.news.yahoo.com/technology/…

The research referred to, incidentally, pertains to a paper published Feb. 4 in the journal Physical Letters B, and another paper that is currently under peer review, which was published in the preprint journal arXiv.

One of our members responded by quoting Genesis 1:1 – In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. She adds, “It’s the simple truth that I believe in.”

Another member countered by saying, “Unfortunately it’s not a simple truth: it is not simple and may not be the truth. E.g. who or what created god? According to Genesis, the universe was created about 6500 BC or something, whereas we know the Universe to be 13.8 billion years old. So Genesis is wrong anyway. “Who or what is god” is equivalent to the question to which Physics is seeking an answer. The big bang hypothesis assumes quantum mechanics is equivalent to god… With the big bang, there is a better explanation for reality and god isn’t needed. By the Occam’s razor principle we can therefore do without him.

To which the first member answered, “To answer the question, “who or what created god?” Nothing and no one created God. God has simply always existed. He was. He is. And He will be.”

Members’ (further) comments follow. (Names withheld):

At the risk of again being laughed at; the paths to god encompass the pre-destined pursuits of failing “knowledge” and the beauty of faith.

Other hypotheses such as a recycling universe, which is certainly not a new idea, may have a different role for quantum mechanics. Something that goes on forever (a recycling universe) is unsatisfactory as it doesn’t explain how it got there in the first place. Why is there something rather than nothing?

How does the new proposal handle the background radiation issue? Some sites worth reading: http://www.big-bang-theory.com/http://news.nationalgeographic.com/ne…

I believe the Big Bang Theory is very ridiculous and requires EVEN MORE FAITH than believing that a loving God created the universe in six days (which is totally the truth, and very simple to accept.)

Keep in mind most modern Christians do not state the world is 4-6,000 years old anymore. Most accept that the Earth is billions of years old as per science’s findings. The belief that it’s only a few thousand years old is now about as popular a Christian belief as the old Biblical viewpoint that the Earth is the center of the Universe. Certainly some Christian sects and other minority offshoots (e.g. Seventh Day Adventists) push the old 4,000 year old Biblical belief, but not mainstream Christianity as a whole…FYI, the Aboriginal (native) people in Australia are estimated to go back to around 50,000 years.

The bottom line is the Bible was written by men (not any supernatural entity) and written in a time when people had little scientific understanding…

The Bible was Not written by men. It was spoken through men but God-breathed (God spoke it it to them or supernaturally showed them what to write).

Any Christian scholar will inform you the Bible was most certainly written by men. Afterall, nobody is saying the books that formed the Bible fell out of the sky already written. Each book in the Bible had authors – hence the Book of Job, the Gospel of Mark, the Gospel of Matthew etc. Furthermore, it’s historically proven many or all of these books were edited at later dates (e.g. the Council of Nicea biblical edits in 353AD conducted by the Romans).

There are actually various other scientific theories that have been proposed regarding the background radiation. For example, Japanese scientist and member of this group Takaaki Musha has proposed that the cosmic background radiation is not due to the after-glow of a Big Bang, but rather it’s due to the Cherenkov radiation from tachyon pairs created from a ZPF vacuum.

Back to the point about the universe possibly recycling. Didn’t Hubble himself have that idea? Wasn’t he the one who thought up the phrase “big bang” as a frustrated way of saying how silly the whole idea was? Of course science is full of silly ideas that ultimately survive the full test of scientific enquiry, such as evolution itself. It will probably take a long time to dismiss the “big bang” theory [no pun intended!]. We can get very close to the point when the current universe began — a tiny fraction of a second. After this point the laws of physics as currently known can work to produce the universe as it is. However close we can get we may never know for sure how the universe began.

There may indeed be a few ideas going around such as parallel universes and/or holographic loop, but these don’t seem testable. This makes it unsatisfactory. I can’t possibly see how the universe could be physically infinite. Closed, certainly. In other words if we keep racing for the exit then we can’t get out, even after an infinite time. This is because ultimately space curves in on itself according to principles of general relativity.

Speculation over exactly what’s to be found below ground has long consumed researchers, conspiracy theorists and others. In UNDERGROUND BASES: Subterranean Military Facilities and the Cities Beneath Our Feet, book seven in The Underground Knowledge Series, we speculate that Nazi-spawned technologies may also exist below ground.

This apparently dates back to the Project Paperclip scientists who were secretly ushered in to America immediately after WW2. Project Paperclip, of course, was that US Government-sanctioned initiative (documented and on the record) that saw thousands of Nazi scientists repatriated to North America at war’s end to provide urgently needed scientific expertise.

We expand on this in the following excerpt from Underground Bases:

Werner von Braun, the German-turned naturalized American and Godfather of NASA’s space rocket program, is one that many researchers have named in relation to underground bases. These Nazi Paperclip scientists were supposedly crucial to the development and construction of the underground bases and tunnels that now exist beneath American soil.

If that sounds farfetched, remember it’s well-documented that von Braun and other Paperclip Nazis built V2 rockets for Hitler in large underground missile facilities in their German homeland in the 1940’s.

 

A group of German rocket scientists in Texas…members of the Project Paperclip team.

Wildest of all, are the numerous conspiracy theories that maintain many of these underground bases – of which there are rumored to be thousands worldwide – are full of captive men, women and children.

Some suggest the captives may have been taken from above ground, which may partially account for the hundreds of thousands of missing persons reported annually around the world who are never found; others suggest the captives are human clones designed to spend their lives enslaved underground to further the global elite’s agendas; and still others suggest some captives are used as human guinea pigs in radical science experiments conducted by scientists working for the Splinter Civilization.

And then there’s the intriguing statements made by one Philip Schneider, an American geologist who, until his untimely death, also claimed to be an ex-government military engineer. Schneider said while he was involved in constructing additional bunkers in one underground base in New Mexico, he discovered aliens conducted horrific experiments on people detained in bunkers miles below the earth’s surface. (More about him later).

We have no strong opinion either way as to whether aliens are with us or even if they exist. All we are doing is repeating the conspiracy theories out there concerning underground bases.

It just so happens a lot of rumors and reports – some reliable, some not – on such bases involve either aliens or alien technologies. In many instances, the theories surrounding underground bunkers and aliens cannot be separated.

“If those unnecessary medical tests don’t kill you, perhaps your medical insurance bill will!” So begins a chapter devoted to the health insurance sector in our contentious book, MEDICAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX: The $ickness Industry, Big Pharma and Suppressed Cures.

 

 

Titled “Health insurance – the devil’s in the detail,” the chapter reminds readers that allegations of corruption have been swirling around health insurers for years. An excerpt from the chapter follows…

One who intimately knows how the health insurance sector works is American Wendell Potter, a health insurance insider who shares his knowledge of the industry in a revealing article posted on the WantToKnow.info blog site. In it, Wendell claims he was “in a unique position to see not only how Wall Street analysts and investors influence decisions insurance company executives make but also how the industry has carried out behind-the-scenes PR and lobbying campaigns to kill or weaken any health care reform efforts that threatened insurers’ profitability”.

Wendell continues, “I also have seen how the industry’s practices – especially those of the for-profit insurers that are under constant pressure from Wall Street to meet their profit expectations – have contributed to the tragedy of nearly 50 million people being uninsured as well as to the growing number of Americans who, because insurers now require them to pay thousands of dollars out of their own pockets before their coverage kicks in – are underinsured. An estimated 25 million of us now fall into that category.

“What I saw happening over the past few years was a steady movement away from the concept of insurance and toward ‘individual responsibility,’ a term used a lot by insurers and their ideological allies. This is playing out as a continuous shifting of the financial burden of health care costs away from insurers and employers and onto the backs of individuals”.

Wendell concludes that rising medical bills mean fewer sick people are visiting their doctor or collecting prescriptions, and he predicts the future for many who become seriously ill will involve bankruptcy or foreclosure on their homes.

And, of course, that’s exactly what’s happening.

When it comes to the US medical system at least, there is no “universal healthcare” service that covers every citizen. In theory, access to cheap or else employer-sponsored private health insurance is supposed to ensure virtually everybody’s covered, but what about the uninsured and the underinsured?

Call us naïve, but it seems to us that any civilized society should at least provide basic healthcare to every man, woman and child. Relying on private insurance seems like an obvious recipe for disaster. This insurance-to-fill-the-gaps approach guarantees collateral damage, including untold deaths.

Many politicians claim it would be far too expensive to provide universal healthcare, but don’t blink an eye as they sign off on several trillion dollars annually on military expenditure to keep the perpetual war machine rolling. Go figure!

Let’s not forget that many countries – like Japan, Australia, the UK, Sweden and New Zealand to name but a few – comfortably provide free, or at least heavily subsidized, healthcare for all their citizens without too much financial discomfort. So the argument from American politicians that universal healthcare would bankrupt the country just does not hold up.

This healthcare disparity between the US and the rest of the (developed) world was covered in no uncertain terms in a June 2012 article in The Atlantic. Headlined ‘Here’s a Map of the Countries That Provide Universal Health Care (America’s Still Not on It)’ the article’s very first line says it all. It reads, “The U.S. stands almost entirely alone among developed nations that lack universal health care.”

The map referred to is a world map that highlighted those countries which provided (and still provide) free or heavily subsidized healthcare for all their citizens. Around half the world’s countries were highlighted, which no doubt surprised many American readers.

The article points out that universal healthcare is available “from Europe to the Asian powerhouses to South America’s southern cone to the Anglophone states of Australia, New Zealand, and Canada. The only developed outliers are a few still-troubled Balkan states, the Soviet-style autocracy of Belarus, and the U.S. of A., the richest nation in the world”.

********************************** 

 

In a book on “international banksters,” in a section on “financial overlords,” we’d be remiss not to at least mention in passing the elite families who have been juggernauts in the history of global banking. We address this in our book INTERNATIONAL BANKSTER$: The Global Banking Elite Exposed and the Case for Restructuring Capitalism.

 

The Oppenheim Family…Photo taken in pre-war Germany.

 

In the following excerpt from INTERNATIONAL BANKSTER$  the impact elite banking families have had on the so-called free market is examined:

Families such as German financial dynasty the Oppenheim family who began to dominate the finance and banking sectors in Europe from the 18th Century onwards. One of the Oppenheim family’s key assets for centuries, Sal. Oppenheim, was the highest valued privately owned investment bank in Europe until the family sold it in 2009.

An even more powerful banking clan is the almost infinitely-wealthy Rothschild family who also entered the banking industry in 18th Century Europe and used to own mining giant Rio Tinto.

 

 

Some say the Rothschilds have incalculable wealth and that even the price of gold is determined by them.

In the United States, the Rockefellers are essentially the equivalent of the Rothschilds, or almost. Besides their extensive background in the oil business, the Rockefellers have long been an elite banking family with key investments like Chase Manhattan Bank and JP Morgan Chase.

Although it’s not commonly reported or even investigated by mainstream media, it seems logical that these elite banking families would manipulate financial markets in their favor. Especially given they have dominated banking for centuries and have the process down to a fine art.

Another important point is these families made much of their fortunes through either criminal or highly immoral enterprises – perhaps deserving their “bankster” titles bestowed upon them by certain independent researchers.

For example, a June 26, 2009 article in the UK’s Financial Times  mentions the Rothschilds’ and other elite banking families’ historical links to slavery.

“Two of the biggest names in the City of London,” the article states, “had previously undisclosed links to slavery in the British colonies, documents seen by the Financial Times have revealed.

“Nathan Mayer Rothschild, the banking family’s 19th-century patriarch, and James William Freshfield, founder of Freshfields, the top City law firm, benefited financially from slavery, records from the National Archives show, even though both have often been portrayed as opponents of slavery”.

The Rockefeller-associated asset, JP Morgan, is also listed in the Financial Times  article as having ties to the slave trade.

“JPMorgan, the investment bank, set up a $5m scholarship fund for black students studying in Louisiana after apologising in 2005 for the company’s historic links to slavery.

“In the case of Mr Rothschild, the documents reveal for the first time that he made personal gains by using slaves as collateral in banking dealings with a slave owner”.

The article also names Lehman Brothers and the Bank of America as among other major financial institutions that profited off slavery.

___________________________________________________________

“For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as internationalists and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure—one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” –David Rockefeller from his 2002 autobiography Memoirs.

___________________________________________________________

Could it be that some, or even many, of the world’s recent financial problems – including meltdowns and crashes – are partly due to market manipulation these elite banksters (partially listed in this chapter) are doing in secret?

If the answer to that question is yes, then it is highly likely much of this subtle, semi-hidden manipulation of the “free market” is done via the much denigrated central banks.
