As everyone knows, most conspiracy theories are BS.

However, what about the lesser known and under-reported “conspiracy FACTS”?

The latest episode of the ongoing podcast series UNDERGROUND KNOWLEDGE is all about revealing such conspiracy facts…In this episode I outline 17 mind-blowing facts…Which prove that the conspiracy field is more nuanced than commonly acknowledged…


Number 1: Operation Paperclip


CIA records:

The New York Times: Nazis Were Given ‘Safe Haven’

The Guardian: UK arranged transfer of Nazi scientists to Australia (Operation Matchbox)


Number 2: Operation Northwoods


ABC News: U.S. Military Wanted to Provoke War With Cuba


Number 3: Operation Mockingbird

The Nation:

“In 1977, Carl Bernstein published an exposé of a CIA program known as Operation Mockingbird, a covert program involving, according to Bernstein, “more than 400 American journalists who in the past 25 years have secretly carried out assignments for the Central Intelligence Agency.” Bernstein found that in “many instances” CIA documents revealed that “journalists were engaged to perform tasks for the CIA with the consent of the managements of America’s leading news organizations.”

Operation Mockingbird – The Black Vault

Operation Mockingbird was a secret campaign by the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to influence media. Begun in the 1950s, it was initially organized by Cord Meyer and Allen W. Dulles, it was later led by Frank Wisner after Dulles became the head of the CIA.

The organization recruited leading American journalists into a network to help present the CIA’s views, and funded some student and cultural organizations, and magazines as fronts. As it developed, it also worked to influence foreign media and political campaigns, in addition to activities by other operating units of the CIA.

DAILY MAIL: Military unveils insect-sized spy drone with dragonfly-like wings

Is That a Bug or a Robotic Spy?

“A team of researchers in conjunction with the US Air Force Office of Scientific Research is developing what they are calling a micro aerial vehicle (MAV) that will undertake various espionage tasks. The robotic insect can effortlessly infiltrate urban areas, while being controlled from a long distance; and it is equipped with a camera and a built-in microphone.”


Number 7: Operation Midnight Climax


SF Chronicle: When the CIA ran a LSD sex-house in San Francisco


Number 8: The Gulf of Tonkin Incident (declassified reports)

New York Times: Vietnam War Intelligence ‘Deliberately Skewed,’ Secret Study Says

The Truth About Tonkin | U.S. Naval Institute

“Questions about the Gulf of Tonkin incidents have persisted for more than 40 years. But once-classified documents and tapes released in the past several years, combined with previously uncovered facts, make clear that high government officials distorted facts and deceived the American public about events that led to full U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War.” -U.S. Naval Institute


Number 9: Project Sunshine

Number 11: The Willowbrook State School Hepatitis Experiments

Victims of sinister medical procedures included residents of Staten Island’s infamous Willowbrook State School

Medical Ethics Text:

“Mentally retarded children housed at the Willowbrook State School in Staten Island, New York, were intentionally given hepatitis in an attempt to track the development of the viral infection. The study began in 1956 and lasted for 14 years.

The researcher also wanted to determine the effectiveness of gamma globulin injections as protection against hepatitis.  They justified their deliberate infections and exposures by claiming that given that there was a high rate of infection in the institution it was practically inevitable that the children would become infected.”


Number 12: The 1933 Reichstag terror attack…A Nazi false flag attack

“There is enough evidence to establish beyond a reasonable doubt that it was the Nazis who planned the arson and carried it out for their own political ends.” -Shirer, William (2011). The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich. Simon and Schuster. p. 192.

What follows are excerpts from a chapter we edited out of our non-fiction book The Orphan Conspiracies: 29 Conspiracy Theories from The Orphan Trilogy  just prior to publication. Why we removed the chapter, we can’t quite recall. Perhaps it was because we weren’t sure readers were ready for it. Anyway, we’ve posted the entire chapter in our Underground Knowledge group on Goodreads.

Here we go… Read the following excerpts at your peril:

If the insider tip-offs we received are correct, then it seems all of our lives are about to change, for the better… long-withheld scientific inventions will change every facet of our society. This new science will replace mainstream or official science and revolutionize education, agriculture, living standards, travel, life expectancy and our present monetary system. And that’s just for starters!

…All that follows is what we have been told, and we are just the messengers so please don’t shoot us if you find this information too fantastical to believe! We tend to believe this information, but without a time travel machine we obviously cannot prove any of these predictions for the future…

A small selection of the suppressed technologies said to be released include; Free energy devices for every person on the planet; weather manipulation machines similar to HAARP except used only for good such as bringing rain to drought-striken areas; modes of transportation using ley lines and other natural energies that will be so fast they will feel close to teleportation; highly effective smart drugs and other brain products that will wire our minds for super intelligence.

And those are simply the technologies we can make head or tail of. Other more out-there inventions like “dream recorders” (which presumably allow individuals to record their own dreams while sleeping as if filming everyday life) “alchemy machines” (something that turns rocks into gold like the legend of ancient alchemists?); “five-sensory entertainment” (entertainment that includes touch, taste and smell, perhaps?) and “mind swappers” (which we can only guess means allowing your mind to be shared with another and vice versa) are all very difficult to imagine, let alone write about here.

Of all these new technologies, the game-changer is predicted to be a structure colloquially referred to as Space Scrapers (aka Star Towers). These gigantic towers will be along the lines of our present sky scraper buildings in the world’s cities, except they’ll be so tall they actually reach into Space!

These incredible structures will be around 275 miles tall, apparently, and most will have their foundations in sea floors and rise up out of the oceans. They will weigh hundreds of billions of tons – however, these edifice’s top half (the part that will reside in Space) will for some reason weigh almost nothing.

Believe it or not, these superstructures will be built almost entirely out of glass. Not regular glass, but a glass product made from sand known as anhydrous glass and incorporating the most advanced Nano technologies. Spider silk, which mainstream science has already shown to be stronger than metallic fiber, will also be woven into the glass. The specially designed and unbreakable glass will be flexible, yet far stronger than the thickest and toughest metals currently used in Nano fiber optics.

The funding, technologies and wherewithal necessary to build Space Scrapers already exist – mostly in secret, of course.

Ones will eventually be built in every country on earth and world citizens will have the ability to step out into Space using elevators, escalators and stairs. More importantly, modern industries will be completely transformed by the construction of these towers…

…it appears these planned Space Scrapers/Star Towers may be based on century-old Tesla technologies. Due to their towering height, they are able to gather the ionosphere’s solar wind radiation energy, providing inhabitants of Earth with an unlimited source of free energy. This will eradicate the need for nuclear power plants and any more Chernobyl or Fukushima-style irradiation disasters. Other current forms of energy, including hydroelectric dams and oil, gas and coal energy plants, will also be a thing of the past as eliminating all air pollution will be a top priority in this new world.

The Space Scrapers will also create millions of jobs worldwide (either directly or indirectly), dropping unemployment levels almost to zero...

Book’s missing chapter resurrected.


The Orphan Conspiracies: 29 Conspiracy Theories from The Orphan Trilogy

Here for your reading pleasure is the foreword from The Orphan Conspiracies – the non-fiction book that inspired the formation of our Underground Knowledge discussion group on Goodreads. It (the foreword) was written by Dr. Takaaki Musha, former senior research scientist at Japan’s Technical Research and Development Institute of the Ministry of Defense, and a leading voice in space exploration.

The Orphan Conspiracies: 29 Conspiracy Theories from The Orphan Trilogy, by James Morcan & Lance Morcan, contains hard-to-find knowledge. This book is based on the political, scientific and financial insights contained in the Morcans’ bestselling international thriller series The Orphan Trilogy.

Throughout The Orphan Trilogy, James & Lance merge fact with fiction by incorporating real-world theories on known individuals and organizations. Now, with this non-fiction companion volume, they provide detailed analysis for each one of those controversial theories.

In many ways, this exhaustively-researched book is the secret history of the 20th Century and the early 21st Century. But more than a history lesson, it also discloses exactly what is happening right now behind the scenes – in underground bunkers, in the corridors of power, in prime banks and meetings of the global elite.

Currently, the world is in a desperate state due to environmental pollution, depletion of natural resources and food supplies, and economic inequalities. To solve these problems and to reach the next level of Mankind, a “new innovation of technology” is required. But nowadays innovative technologies such as cold fusion, and radical energy sources, including sonoluminescent-triggered fusion and anti-gravitational propulsion, are either being withheld or blocked by governments, old-fashioned science academia and multinational corporations.

I believe that the Big-Bang Theory and the Evolution Theory, as well as Einstein’s Special Relativity Theory which does not allow for the existence of faster-than-light (superluminal) phenomena, all have flaws in them and must be replaced by new theories that can give Mankind a more concise view of our Universe. But the fact is exceptional discoveries and theories that challenge official science have been ignored by the Establishment for decades.

I was employed for many years as a senior research scientist developing naval underwater weapon systems at the Technical Research and Development Institute of the Ministry of Defense, Japan, and I often suspected there existed extraordinary technologies developed by the world’s superpowers. I am of the opinion that most of these technologies have been concealed from the public’s eyes.

The world’s governments have many classified layers and outsiders rarely gain access to their hidden secrets. And certainly no common man can get confirmation of the existence of exotic technologies.

I was also part of a team of scientists in the Advanced Space Propulsion Investigation Committee (ASPIC), which was organized by the Japan Society for Aeronautical and Space Sciences in 1994. ASPIC’s purpose was to study all kinds of non-chemical space propulsion systems instead of conventional rocket systems for space missions to nearby planets, the Moon and the outer Solar System. This included field propulsion systems which utilize zero-point energy, the electro-gravitic effect and the non-Newtonian gravitic effect predicted in Einstein’s Theory of Gravity.

During my time with ASPIC, I strongly felt that some of the gravity control systems could have been realized, or had already been realized, but were being overshadowed by existing science. Such radical space technologies never reach the public because unknown groups do not wish humanity to have access to the highest knowledge or the most advanced scientific inventions. Perhaps this suppression is out of fear that the masses may be able to explore our Solar System and the Universe beyond it.

Whatever the case, it seems they want us to stay at ignorant levels forever.

This book is also about the purposeful bankrupting of nations around the world, the inherently corrupt monetary system and the scam of modern banking – all of which have obviously become major vices of our era. I believe that financial domination is one of the main methods used to enslave the people of this world.

I expect readers of this book will be surprised by the level of knowledge imparted in its pages, especially with its revelations of exotic technologies, financial injustices, political deceptions and suppressed scientific discoveries. I also expect readers will be inspired by the lifting of the veil that occurs when long-guarded information is absorbed.

Lastly, I sincerely hope that the publication of this book contributes to a global awakening which assists the future creation of new scientific theories and technologies – including space propulsion systems – that are not currently on the mainstream scientific agenda.

James Morcan discusses Underground Knowledge on Boston's Philosophic Perspectives Radio Show

The Underground Knowledge group has been designed to encourage debates about important and underreported issues of our era. All you need is an enquiring mind, an interest in the world we live in and a desire to learn or share ‘underground knowledge.’

The inspiration for the group was our first non-fiction book The Orphan Conspiracies – a book one Amazon reviewer describes as “More conspiracy fact than fiction.” Another reviewer says, “This book may scare the pants off you!” and yet another says, “Every American should read this book.”

Book the inspiration for our group.

Some of the group’s discussion threads contain literally hundreds of posts by members – a reflection no doubt of the timely and often controversial topics covered in these threads. Examples of those topics are listed in earlier blogs.

Also mighty popular are our ongoing polls. For example, our latest poll, which closes October 16 PDT, asks: What is your opinion of whistleblowers like Edward Snowden, Julian Assange & Bradley Manning who leak classified intelligence information to the public concerning their own government’s criminal activities?

Whistleblowers Manning, Assange and Snowden.

Interim poll results show two thirds of respondents consider them heroes. To view the interim results and comments, or better still to have YOUR say, go to:—a-discussion-group?type=group 

Examples of earlier polls include:

Do you believe World Trade Center 7 (aka Building 7), which no plane hit on 9/11, collapsed solely due to fires as per the official story?

Do you believe genius-level intelligence is primarily the result of nature (genes) or nurture (education, environment, parenting etc)?

Do you believe Jesus Christ was a real historical person?

Do you believe Robert (Bobby) F. Kennedy (RFK) was solely killed by the “lone gunman” Sirhan Sirhan?

Do you believe the likes of Bill Gates & Warren Buffett are the richest people in the world as per the annual Forbes Rich Lists?

Do you believe classified mind control technologies are being used by governments on innocent citizens?

Do you believe MARILYN MONROE committed SUICIDE or was MURDERED?

Do you believe A.I. (artificial intelligence) will ever be more advanced/sophisticated than human intelligence?

Do you believe time travel is possible?

Do you believe the Pyramids of Giza were constructed solely to be burial chambers (tombs) for the pharaohs as Egyptologists tell us?

Check out the video for the recent radio interview I did on Boston’s Philosophic Perspectives Radio Show with Arthur D. Schwartz.

The controversial subjects I discuss in this interview include false flag terrorism sponsored by Western governments, the Americanized Nazis involved in the CIA’s Operation Paperclip, suppressed technologies, and the world’s hidden system of finance involving undeclared fortunes.

Thanks guys n gals! James Morcan

In the latest poll on our ‘Underground Knowledge’ group on, we ask: Do you believe MARILYN MONROE committed SUICIDE or was MURDERED? Interim results show 56% believe she was murdered.

Intimate photos of Marilyn Monroe show her love of food

Only 15% of poll respondents believe Marilyn committed suicide and the balance (29%) are unsure.

Some of the comments received from those polled makes for interesting reading…

Here’s a sample of comments received (names withheld):

One of the many mysteries surrounding Monroe’s death was the amount of time it took for anybody to alert the police. The nearest police station to her home in Brentwood, Los Angeles, was only three miles away and yet the police weren’t summoned until the following day (August 5) at 4.30am – a full six hours after Monroe’s publicist and other associates had been called to the house and found her dead.


She was murdered obviously for multiple motives. It is interesting that the CIA and the Mafia have both been linked to the alleged murder. Marilyn is known to have spent her last night of life with Mafia boss Sam Giancana. Given the Mafia’s practice of warning their quarry in advance of their death with the notorious “kiss of death”, it seems rather telling in its own right.


Unintentional suicide is entirely possible given the amount of meds she was prescribed, taken together with or without alcohol would depress respiratory function to the point where she would expire. Now the question becomes who persuaded her Docs to give her the combos of pills that were unsafe and was that intentional?


What if Marilyn had no idea of the logical evil going on around her, and was completely innocent in her heart, and this was what scared the hell out of those in power; complications. details, complications, details to ad infinitum.

A discussion thread titled “War, what is it good for? Absolutely nuthin!” on our Underground Knowledge group on has prompted an outpouring of anti-war comment, the overwhelming concensus being that war is, indeed, good for absolutely nuthin.

Gulf War Photobox.jpg

The discussion was prompted by publication of an excerpt from our book THE ORPHAN CONSPIRACIES. It was lifted from a chapter titled ‘False flag operations’ and reads as follows:

According to our research, WW2 was one of the last legitimate wars. Legitimate in that there was probably no other alternative but war. Nearly all other wars since – especially the Gulf Wars, Vietnam, The Falklands War and the various Afghan wars – have simply been money-spinners spawned by the fear of fabricated enemies or at least unproven enemies.

This all leads to other questions.

Were communists ever a valid threat? When the US pulled out of Vietnam, why didn’t the much hyped Domino Theory ever occur? Why weren’t most other Asian countries overrun by communism as this theory stated was inevitable?

Is it realistic to have a war on ‘terror’ instead of a conventional war against a recognizable nation or group of nations? Can bearded nomads living in caves in Afghanistan or Pakistan really be a genuine threat to superpowers? And can isolated and impoverished nations like North Korea prevent world peace if the rest of the world wants peace?

Would North Korean president Kim Jong-un actually order his military to fire nuclear weapons and incite war? If so, what would be in it for North Korea when they’d obviously be committing suicide by inviting the rest of the world to immediately invade them? Can a leader of any nation really be that stupid?


A random selection of some of the more interesting responses from group members follow. (Names withheld):

Some conflicts/wars I believe are a necessary evil – a terrible waste and disgraceful but if you lived in Africa wouldn’t you want someone to help you. There in lies your argument who decides where we go to war and where we ignore?


I’d replace the word ‘country’ with ‘government’. That’s the biggest con of all- this belief that we’re all countries of people starting and fighting wars, when it’s always been the top elite (government, royalty…) creating those wars. And in today’s age especially, the vast amount of people in the world want peace. It’s the governments that make those decisions, not the people.


Somewhere along the way the US was hijacked by elitists and American values were discarded.


War is often propaganda-dly sold to us with fear.


All we’ve got to do is defend rather than invade. It’s effing simple.


At the beginning of the “War on Terror,” here in New Mexico I was shocked and awed to see so many American flags erected on private properties as well as a popular bumper sticker which said; “SUPPORT OUR TROOPS,” which really meant “SUPPORT OUR WAR.”


There used to a sarcastic slogan back in the 60’s; “Sure its a dirty little war. But its the only one we’ve got.”


Fighting just creates more fighting; its an endless loop in human history that will never cease until we go about things another way.


If we don’t work for those in power… if we don’t pay those in power, they’re stuffed. But it’ll take a huge amount of people, including people in politics, armed forces, police forces… to come together to change the world.


History strongly suggests that the human story is the story of wars and dominance. So, to escape all that has gone before, it seems necessary to do something new; a miracle, if you will. Its hard to keep believing in the face of reality.


ISIS seems like yet another fabricated enemy ala Al Qaeda. And indeed there is already much evidence to support this theory.


There have always been evil doers…terrorists, dictators, are all over the show – yet for some reason we always inflate the Middle Eastern ones and under-report other ones…5 million people have been killed in the Congo (formerly Zaire) in the last 10 years plus 1 million women have been raped. But no Western country wants to invade The Congo and try to do the right thing.


Trying to achieve peace by one more war is like saying terrorists can be defeated by terrorizing other nations in the charade they call the War on Terror…For me, Jim Morrison said it best when he sung “They got the guns, but we got the numbers.”… It’s similar to what Gandhi said during the time of the British Raj: “100,000 Englishmen simply cannot control 350 million Indians, if those Indians refuse to cooperate.”
