Although eugenics flourished in Nazi Germany, the ideal of a blond-haired, blue-eyed master race wasn’t Adolf Hitler’s. In researching one of our books, we discovered that American eugenics policies inspired eugenics programs in Nazi Germany. If that’s not disturbing enough, during the early days of the Third Reich, American eugenicists publicly praised Hitler’s plans to introduce and enforce sterilization of “unsuitable people” and other such eugenics policies!


Auschwitz a symbol of Hitler’s eugenics program.

In Mein Kampf, Hitler credited America with helping formulate his ideas on eugenics, and he admitted he’d studied the laws of US states to familiarize himself with selective reproduction and other eugenics issues.

Funding also flowed from the US to Nazi Germany for eugenics programs. For example, The Rockefeller Foundation financed numerous German eugenics experiments, including one that Josef Mengele worked on before he carried out his notorious human experimentations in Auschwitz.

In America, eugenics often targeted minority ethnicities. Early last century, 31 US states legalized sterilization of those deemed genetically inferior, especially psychiatric patients. And Nobel-prize winning electronics pioneer, eugenics advocate and notorious racist, Dr. William Shockley, proposed to pay black persons with IQ’s lower than 100 a cash incentive of $1000 to have themselves sterilized.

We devote a chapter to the unsavory topic of eugenics in our book The Orphan Conspiracies. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00J4MPFT6/

In this age of kick-ass literary heroines à la Katniss Everdeen, Lin Shan, Boudicca, Scout Finch, Maxine Kiss and co. we reckon Scotland Yard detective Valerie Crowther takes the cake. See how she deals with violent youths in a pandemic-quarantined university for the deaf in this excerpt from our thriller novel Silent Fear (A novel inspired by true crimes)

Valerie threw herself forward, elbows raised out in front of her. In the heat of battle, the detective preferred elbows over fists. She’d learned the hard way a female’s small fists were more likely to suffer damage than achieve anything of note if used in anger. Especially a slim lightweight like herself. However, her elbows – bony and sharp as they were – could cause some real damage with little risk of injury to herself if used the right way. And so it proved.

The detective’s sudden change of direction placed her exactly between Harris and Warne, and her extended elbows connected simultaneously and with considerable force with the foreheads of each. Warne was out to it before he hit the floor. Harris, who was now on his hands and knees and evidently wondering where he was, was sent into Disneyland with a well-placed kick to the side of his head…

Silent Fear is available via Amazon as a paperback and Kindle ebook – https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B075HRYTVC/

The average reading speed is 300 words, or about one page, per minute. Did you know President John F. Kennedy was one of a number of US Presidents who were speed-readers?

JFK (above) claimed he could read at around 2000 words per minute with a very high comprehension rate. He studied under American speed-reading expert Evelyn Wood who could read at an impressive 6000 words a minute. Other speed-reading presidents, confirmed or rumored, include Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt and Jimmy Carter.

In 2007, when J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was published, six times world champion speed-reader Anne Jones was the first to read it. Jones finished the 200,000-word, 759-page book in 47 minutes flat then immediately completed a book review and sent it out to media to prove her total comprehension of the story.

After researching the brain’s scientifically proven ability to pick up things subliminally and rapidly, we devoted a chapter to speed reading in our book GENIUS INTELLIGENCE : Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ. We learned (from others far brighter than ourselves) that by incorporating peripheral vision and photographic memory, it’s possible to mentally scan or photograph entire pages at a time rather than one word at a time.

Imagine for a moment a reality where all the technologies futurists have predicted have already been invented and are currently being used by a privileged few. Skeptical? Look no further than Nikola Tesla, aka the Electric Magician. Many secret technologies are rumored to be based on the works of this brilliant Croatian-born Serbian-American scientist, inventor, physicist and electrical engineer.

The Electric Magician…scientist extraordinaire

Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) was, in the view of many, history’s most underrated scientist. His astounding official achievements in the scientific field are too many to list here. We summarize the Tesla story in our book The Orphan Conspiracieshttps://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00J4MPFT6/ It provides insights into the conspiracy theories that feature in our international thriller series The Orphan Trilogyhttps://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BGGM05U/

The Orphan Conspiracies: 29 Conspiracy Theories from The Orphan Trilogy Kindle Edition

The Orphan Trilogy (The Ninth Orphan / The Orphan Factory / The Orphan Uprising) by [James Morcan, Lance Morcan]

Above books exclusive to Amazon.

As revolutionary as Tesla’s known inventions and experiments sound, it’s his long-rumored suppressed inventions that have spawned countless theories. There have been numerous reports of scientific inventions that never saw the light of day even though they were ready to go on the market.

History lovers will appreciate the book THE ADVENTURES OF JOHN JEWITT, the illustrated true story that inspired our epic novel Into the Americas. The book contains the complete diary entries English seaman John Jewitt made during his time as a captive of the Mowachahts of Nootka Sound, Vancouver Island, in the early 1800s.

Jewitt was one of only two survivors when fierce warriors slaughtered twenty-five of his crewmates aboard the brig, the Boston, in Nootka Sound. More than two years of captivity followed.

Thanks to Jewitt’s fondness for the written word and his diligence in maintaining his diary entries throughout his captivity, we have been left with an intriguing insight into his life, and into the lives of First Nations people. His account is made all the more extraordinary by virtue of the fact that such interaction between whites and the tribes of the Pacific Northwest was virtually unheard of and certainly never before (and seldom since) written about in such detail.

The Adventures of John Jewitt, and the novel it inspired, are available via Amazon as paperbacks and Kindle ebooks. The link to the former is: https://www.amazon.com/ADVENTURES-JOHN-JEWITT-inspired-Illustrated-ebook/dp/B07C36WL37/

Membership of our Underground Knowledge global discussion group on Goodreads, the Amazon-owned literary site for books, authors and readers, has cracked the 15,000 mark. This milestone reconfirms its status as one of the biggest and fastest-growing groups on the popular site.

Predictably, Coronavirus-related topics currently make up some of the group’s most popular discussion threads, the tenure of them indicating most Undergrounders are highly critical of the authorities’ handling of the Covid-19 pandemic and sceptical of the lockdowns and the hastily-approved vaccines being distributed to combat the disease.

A sample of our Covid-related discussion threads follows:

Are the lockdowns and quarantines about something more than just the virus?

The CFR (Case Fatality Rate) is not the all-important IFR (Infection Fatality Rate)

Is the 2020 Corona saga a psy-op? (Designed to modify human behaviour?)

Doctors and Medical Scientists with contrarian opinions on the new Coronavirus (please only include links to statements made by doctors, scientists and medical professionals)

Do you trust Bill Gates (AKA the unofficial world authority on Coronavirus measures)?

Can Tedros Adhanom (the WHO head honcho) be trusted?

Coronavirus-related books of interest

Is Coronavirus (COVID-19) a man-made lab creation?

“Human Race Get Off Your Knees: The Lion Sleeps No More!” (Naivety? OR: The uprising against the COVID World Order begins?)
