There are many subterranean facilities around the world used for a variety of purposes that range from storing weapons, machinery and equipment to providing underground office space, assembly areas and safe houses. Many of these are officially acknowledged. Some aren’t. It’s those that aren’t that we focus on in our new book UNDERGROUND BASES: Subterranean Military Facilities and the Cities Beneath Our Feet.


UNDERGROUND BASES: Subterranean Military Facilities and the Cities Beneath Our Feet (The Underground Knowledge Series Book 7)


We address the mystery that is classified underground bases in our book. Here’s an excerpt:

Those who have researched unacknowledged subterranean facilities are almost unanimous in their belief that the bases are funded by black budgets financed by a combination of banksters, drug wars and profits from (mainly mineral) resources plundered from unwitting Third World countries.

The US program for building these underground bunkers is known as DUMB, or Deep Underground Military Bases. DUMB has apparently been in operation since the late 1940’s and there are now said to be hundreds of such bases in almost every state in mainland America.


“Two baseline questions regarding whether or not DUMBs actually exist: Do the elite command the technology to create underground cities connected by supersonic Maglev trains? Are the elite psychopathic enough to intentionally disrupt Earth’s life-support system?” -Veterans Today, February 10, 2013 article Elite Underground.


In Washington D.C. it has been widely reported by mainstream media that there’s a vast tunnel system below the capital. And it’s our understanding that at any given time there are hundreds of security personnel patrolling the tunnels, on foot or with the aid of motorized vehicles.

Very likely many of D.C.’s tunnels lead to and from the White House. The often-told stories of Marilyn Monroe being sneaked in and out of the White House via underground tunnels to meet with JFK would seem to confirm this. Such tales reveal the capital’s extensive tunnel system enabled Marilyn to be the President’s mistress without much scandal – for a period, at least.

In an article dated April 4, 2011, the UK’s Daily Mail asks if “a secret lair was being built under the White House”.

The Daily Mail article continues: “The West Wing of the White House is all-but disappearing behind an $86 million building project that is going to last for years. And a mysterious tunnel is being built, fuelling speculation that a secret underground lair is what’s really under construction.

“In recent weeks, an expanding and sometimes ear-splitting zone of excavation has enveloped the mansion’s famous office wing…

“The White House already has a number of tunnels —the exact number is, of course, classified.

“The most well known is the underground corridor that leads to the President’s Emergency Operations Center (PEOC), a supposedly nuclear-proof bunker located six stories under the East Wing. It was to this bunker and its adjacent Executive Briefing Room that Dick Cheney and Condoleezza Rice, among others, directed Government operations on September 11, 2001.

“While Hollywood and many conspiracy theorists suggest a rabbit warren of subterranean passageways— including mythical tunnels to Capitol Hill and even Camp David —there is at least one hidden passageway that has been revealed in the famous residence.”

The Daily Mail confirms “a 50-yard tunnel leads from a concealed doorway in the Oval Office to the basement of the First Family’s residence” in the East Wing.

“The clandestine passage was built during Ronald Reagan’s presidency as a way to guard the President in a terrorist attack…Pressing a panel on a wall adjacent to the President’s rest room next to the Oval Office causes a secret door to slide open, leading to a staircase down to the passageway.”

The Daily Mail also asserts there is talk of a tunnel linking the White House to Blair House across Pennsylvania Avenue.

Before It’s News columnist Monica Davis, in an article dated February 20, 2013, says “the massive 4 year White House construction project has finally been completed.” She’s referring to the same “secret lair” the Daily Mail reported on earlier.

Excerpts from Ms Davis’ article follow:

“The deep, underground project continues to be shrouded in secrecy and has reportedly been planned for 40 years…

“Given that the president has so many fortified hidey holes, why was this one built? What does its construction really mean for the security of the most powerful man in the world?

“…And deep underground, whatever has been built there remains shrouded in mystery.”

The President of the United States is regularly referred to as the most powerful person on Earth. This holds true for the current president, Barack Obama, as it has for all other American presidents in recent decades.

Certainly, the US is the world’s biggest economy and has the largest military force. It’s arguably the last legitimate superpower left – not forgetting that China has all the hallmarks of a future superpower – and the US President, as commander-in-chief of America’s armed forces, is in charge of the world’s biggest nuclear arsenal as well.

So, surely if anybody would qualify as the most powerful person on the planet, then it would be the President.


Um…well…maybe wrong, actually.

What the hell are you guys talking about? we hear you ask. Obviously the President is the most powerful person in the world! For pete’s sake, you guys better retire now if you can’t see that!

We hear you, we hear you. But just hold on a moment.

Appearances would certainly suggest he’s the most powerful person – especially when America’s dominant military, political and economic position is taken into account. But appearances can be deceiving.

It’s important to remember the US President isn’t only accountable to himself: he is, first and foremost, accountable to others – and we’re not just referring to the American people.

Many a political conspiracy theory has at its cornerstone the idea that whoever the US President is at any given time is merely a pawn. An employee, if you will, representing the real power players who lurk in the shadows but rule with absolute authority.

This theory requires us to believe the President has secret allegiances with invisible people – invisible to anyone below the Presidency that is – who micromanage him.

If true, the President’s decision-making power would be farcical; he’d simply be the person who presses the button – not the one making the decision to drop the bomb or send in the drones or bring home the troops.

Too big a stretch, you say?

Maybe, but stick with us…


Contrary to the media circus which portrayed politicians as all-powerful figures, Kentbridge knew from experience the vast majority of US Government officials elected or otherwise were puppets who only had the illusion of power. This included Presidents. These public figures all understood the game and were happy to go through the motions, carrying out orders that came from above from the likes of the Omega Agency so they could fulfill their own egotistical ambitions.The Ninth Orphan


Consider the “vast right-wing conspiracy” First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton mentioned in 1998 in relation to the sex scandal involving her husband President Bill Clinton and White House intern Monica Lewinsky. Mrs Clinton’s choice of words seem odd if you stop to consider she was talking about the world’s supposedly most powerful man at that time.

TIME Magazine Cover: Monica Lewinsky & Bill Clinton -- Feb. 2, 1998

Surely such a man would be immune to attacks from minnows of the right wing Republican opposition. Or did Mrs Clinton’s seemingly innocent comment allude to something, or someone, other than Republicans? Could she have been referring to shadowy figures in some invisible government who wanted to bring her husband down, or at least curtail some of his wayward policies?

Could her use of the word conspiracy in her statement have been a cryptic clue?


Bozos in the White House

George W. Bush is probably the US President whose intelligence has been most questioned. Certainly he’s up there with Presidents Ford and Reagan. His frequent gaffes, or Bushisms, and his apparent inability at times to clearly answer even the simplest of questions raised alarm bells in the minds of many Americans.

George W’s Bushisms include publicly congratulating ostracized FEMA director Michael Brown for his handling of the Hurricane Katrina emergency in 2005 despite the fact that Brown had received extreme nationwide criticism over his handling of the disaster; a year earlier, while talking about the War on Terror, Bush said America’s enemies “never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.” And in a speech in 2002, he famously remarked, “There’s an old saying in Tennessee…I know it’s in Texas, probably in Tennessee…that says, fool me once, shame on…shame on you…Fool me…you can’t get fooled again!”

In case you’re interested, there are hundreds of Bushism compilation videos, or Greatest Hits, that can be viewed on YouTube.

Rightly or wrongly, the moniker Dubbya forever became synonymous with stupidity and ignorance.

Was this man really bright enough to run the United States of America? Was he capable of making the myriad of complex decisions required of presidents every day?


It was true Isabelle was the daughter of a politician and therefore must have had an inkling of how Western alpha male-style governments functioned, but the world he operated in was beyond governments. Nine was one of the few who knew the truth. He understood world leaders were simply opportunists placed in so-called positions of power to carry out the agendas of the real power-players who always remained behind the scenes.The Ninth Orphan


During Ronald Reagan’s presidency it was rumored he slept more than he worked, especially during his second term. As a former actor, perhaps Reagan understood better than most his White House role was less about making decisions and more about delivering lines and following scripts the powers-that-be wrote.

If even half the tales surrounding lazy or inept presidents are true then that may provide some insight into whether the US President is the most powerful person on Earth or, indeed, if he has any real power at all.

TV frontman John Stewart’s expression leaves little doubt what he thinks of the last eight presidents.

It has always intrigued us that no President ever asked Congress – on the record at least – to establish exactly who manages America’s money supply? And why are the suspicious activities rumored to be swirling around the Federal Reserve never – officially at least – investigated? Could it be that Presidents promise to support global banksters before running for office?

When there is such a long and detailed history of false flag operations, why has no recent President seriously questioned the validity of intelligence reports claiming the existence of WMD’s or the incidence of terrorist attacks in certain countries? Could it be these Presidents are also in the pocket of the Military Industrial Complex, that powerful combination of America’s armed forces, legislators, political factions, defence contractors and money men?

military-industrial-complex.jpgThe farewell speech of Dwight D. Eisenhower, the 34th President of the US and the only Army General ever to be elected President, is perhaps telling in this regard.

In his speech, which was delivered in a television broadcast on January 17, 1961, Eisenhower warned America against the ever-increasing political influence of the Military Industrial Complex.


“We must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex,” said Eisenhower. “The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes.”

President Eisenhower also pointed out that the nation annually spent on “military security alone more than the net income of all United States corporations” – a fact which possibly holds true to this day, depending on definitions of where military security starts and ends.

Eisenhower’s speech could be construed as suggesting his Presidential powers were diluted because of the influence of the Military Industrial Complex and/or other such entities. His warning that Americans must guard against the complex’s “acquisition of unwarranted influence” certainly suggests that.


Kentbridge was certain all of the US presidents since JFK had been puppets. The lack of any real decision-making power presidents had was reflected in a long-running joke within the agency: One could place a monkey in the White House Oval Office and everything would run just fine.The Orphan Factory


The Invisible Government

Government, as we all know, is the system by which people, states or countries are governed.

Here’s an alternative definition that’s popular with conspiracy theorists: Government is a system certain nefarious people and organizations can hide behind and achieve even more than they could if legitimately elected to office. These immoral parties include unelected officials and secret societies who are collectively known in some circles as the Invisible Government.

Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.  - Theodore Roosevelt

It’s quite possible there’s an Invisible Government operating in America today with some unknown entity pulling the strings of elected politicians and officials – in which case the Government that’s portrayed in the media is just a front for some shadowy group.

If it’s conceivable the Invisible Government is controlling, or at least has influence over, the banking system, the media and radical science, then why couldn’t it have influence over the President, too?

There are also theories that there are 40 levels in US intelligence above top secret, of which the President only has clearance to about Level 20. No such theories have ever been proven, however.

We realize there are a lot of what ifs in our analysis, but it’s important to remember we are dealing with 50 shades of subtlety when it comes to trying to ascertain how the world really operates. Those shadowy groups, secret societies and faceless people pulling strings in the financial, military, scientific, medical, industrial and political sectors don’t take out front page newspaper ads to advertise their agendas or their modus operandi.

So it’s up to us, average Jo Citizen, to read between the lines, think outside the square and question everything we’re told.

If you think we’re scaremongering, cast your eye over the quotations scattered throughout this chapter and, indeed, throughout this book – from JFK in particular – warning of secret societies and the like.


“There exists a shadowy government with its own Air Force, its own Navy, its own fundraising mechanism, and the ability to pursue its own ideas of national interest, free from all checks and balances, and free from the law itself.” –Daniel K. Inouye, US Senator from Hawaii. Testimony given to the Senate Select Committee on Secret Military Assistance to Iran and the Nicaraguan Opposition (Iran-Contra hearings) in 1987.


The usual (and unusual) suspects

If it’s not the President and the official Government then who is really running the United States of America?

As the old saying goes, follow the money trail. That would surely make our aforementioned friends, the good ol’ global banksters, prime suspects.

banksters 5

At the very least, bankers and financial services suppliers would have to be part of the Invisible Government, if indeed it does exist. They could be compared to the outer layer of an onion: peel back a layer or two and you’d likely find covert organizations running the banks.

And if that theory holds true, secret societies like the Freemasons and Skull and Bones would probably be to the fore.

Other major players in an Invisible Government could comprise the global elite groups mentioned in previous chapters, including the Bilderberg Group and the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).

Now let’s introduce another little known group into the equation…


The Bohemian Club

Bohemian Groveis a 2700-acre campground in Monte Rio, California, owned by an obscure Californian men’s art club called the Bohemian Club, which can trace its foundation back to 1872.

According to Wikipedia, “In mid-July each year, Bohemian Grove hosts a two-week, three-weekend encampment of some of the most powerful men in the world.”

Past and present members of this bizarre, invitation-only club, where grown men act like boys in the woods and conduct pagan rituals, include Richard Nixon, George H. W. Bush, Ronald Reagan and apparently every other Republican President since Calvin Coolidge. Other Bohemian members include or included Jack London, Henry Kissinger, Walter Cronkite, David Rockefeller Sr., Donald Rumsfeld and Henry Ford.

Observers say the Bohemian Club is like the Bilderberg Group and the CFR in that it undermines democracy by holding closed meetings.

In a Los Angeles Times article dated May 26, 1987, it was reported that Richard Nixon once sent his fellow Bohemian Grove members a statement saying, “Anyone can aspire to be President of the United States, but few have any hope of becoming president of the Bohemian Club”.

Nixon’s also on record as commenting several times that attending Bohemian Grove was crucial to becoming the US President. For example, in his 1978 book, Memoirs, he says, “in many important ways it marked the first milestone on my road to the presidency”.

Bohemian Grove Members

The Bohemian Club…where grown men act like boys.

If elitist groups like Bohemian Club, the CFR and the Bilderberg Group select and groom candidates to become Presidents of the US then isn’t it safe to assume they also dictate certain policies once their alumni are in the White House?


“The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings.” –President John F. Kennedy, speech to the American Newspaper Publishers Association. April 27, 1961, New York City.


Secret affiliations of US Presidents

From our research into the history of American politics, one detail kept rising to the surface time and again: All recent US Presidents pledged allegiance to at least one secret society or elitist organization before they ran for office.

Freemasonry and Skull and Bones are two of the most common secret societies, while the Bilderberg Group, the Trilateral Commission, the Bohemian Club and the CFR seem to be the main elitist organizations on any serious presidential candidate’s to-do list.

What follows are the secret affiliations of the previous eight Presidents before Obama. This list dates back over half a century to the 1963 assassination of JFK, but excludes President Kennedy himself who appeared to belong to no such societies, organizations or fraternities.

George W. Bush (Bohemian Club, Skull and Bones),Bill Clinton (Mason, Skull and Bones, Bilderberg, CFR, Trilateral Commission), George H. W. Bush (Mason, Skull and Bones, Bohemian Club, Trilateral Commission, CFR, Skull and Bones),Ronald Reagan (Bohemian Club, Mason), Jimmy Carter (Trilateral Commission, CFR), Gerald Ford (Mason, Bilderberg, Bohemian Club, CFR), Richard Nixon (Bohemian Club, CFR), Lyndon B. Johnson (Mason, CFR).

What this amounts to is that recent US Presidents have all been owned in one way or another before they even set foot in the White House Oval Office to serve their terms.

The one potential omission in this disturbing trend is Barry Soetoro – more commonly known as Barack Obama. We refer of course to the name Obama sometimes used in Indonesia where he spent part of his childhood. Soetoro was his stepfather’s surname and Barry was the nickname he used throughout college.

However, to get back to the point, it may well be President Obama is ultra-secretive about his membership of elitist organizations and secret societies.

Sourcing accurate information on Obama’s background is tricky. There’s a huge amount of so-called evidence online, painting Obama as a fraud. But if you take the time to research the individuals making such claims you will quickly establish they are often racially motivated.

Given that racism still exists in the 21st Century, the amount of fabricated evidence on America’s first black President is hardly surprising. Even so, there have been intriguing reports that point to the possibility of Obama being a member of various elitist, non-governmental groups.

For example, on March 5, 2007, conspiracy website Above Top Secret included statements from an anonymous Freemason who claimed to have befriended Obama years earlier at a Masonic lodge in Illinois. However, the lodge in question could find no record of Obama ever having attended.

Shortly before Obama was elected to the presidency, the June 2, 2008 issue of Newsweek included a photograph with an article that appeared to show a Masonic ring on the future president’s finger. The image sent the Tinfoil Hat Network into a frenzy. However, there’s no conclusive proof that the finger is Obama’s.

The Masonic ring allegedly on the finger of Obama.

And as mentioned in Chapter 3, there have been persistent rumors the Hawaii-born Obama has also attended at least one Bilderberg meeting – namely the conference at Chantilly, Virginia, in 2008, which also took place shortly before he became the US President.

So it remains inconclusive as to whether Obama is a tool or not. Either he’s squeaky clean as his administration presents him to be, or he has covered his tracks so well that his membership of secret or elitist organizations cannot be proven conclusively.

Given the consistently nefarious behavior of the world’s elite, we certainly know which way we’d be placing our bets regarding Obama. We just cannot believe that any average, honest, law-abiding American citizen can get anywhere near the presidency without shaking hands with corrupt powerbrokers, signing deals with banksters and generally bending over backwards for the global elite.


Certainly there were obvious differences in policies between the various leaders, and an America run by a Bush, an Obama or a Clinton would have distinct contrasts. Those variables didn’t concern the secret elite rulers, however. As long as the Omega Agency and other clandestine groups ensured each administration sold out on the most lucrative issues – oil, banking, drug trafficking, arms sales – they couldn’t care less whether a political party poured a few more measly bucks into healthcare or schools.The Ninth Orphan


A DIY guide to buying American Presidents

For the sake of exploring this theory of owning Presidents and Administrations, let’s create our own secret society right here and now, and let’s call this covert, invitation-only organization Pegasus.

Pegasus members are a group of elite families whose combined wealth is worth trillions of dollars. Yet they feature on no rich lists for their wealth is created and expanded by high finance deals that are beyond governments and tax systems, and involve clandestine transfers in the murky world of offshore banking.

This consortium’s members, who now make up the Invisible Government, have infiltrated every aspect of the current Administration by conducting a silent coup d’etat that went unreported.

Pegasus can afford to buy candidates upfront before they run for office. They also gain coercive influence over the key figures in all the major parties.

Pegasus can’t lose if they back all the major political parties. Although it seems the Left side of the political spectrum is the antithesis of the Right, they understand there really is no Left or Right, or even any political parties. There is only Pegasus.

So while it appears as if voters have a choice, the reality is they don’t – at least not a choice that matters a whole lot.


Although political parties often seemed poles apart, in reality they all bowed to this higher order of power. Kentbridge had long since understood Democrats and Republicans were essentially the same party with different faces and that was why, no matter how many promises each leader made, significant change rarely transpired.The Ninth Orphan


The political apathy of today’s youth

Young people today seem to be coming round to the idea it really doesn’t matter which politician or political party you vote for; and they’re catching on that it doesn’t even matter if you don’t vote because they have realized modern elections are just a way for the 1% to appease the 99% – a way to keep the masses in line by making them believe they’ve had their say, thereby perpetuating the lie that democracy continues.

More and more young people have twigged that modern politics is all a big game. Perhaps this is because they’re more likely to source their information from the Internet, social media, alternative media and citizen journalists. They sense that leaders in power – be they presidents or prime ministers – are simply caretakers who serve a term or two before the next caretaker steps in to carry on with the charade.

The question is, are today’s youth enlightened people or cynics who don’t respect the democracy their forefathers fought for?

Perhaps authors Dan Cassino and Yasemin Besen-Cassino answer that question in a roundabout way in their 2009 book Consuming Politics: Jon Stewart, Branding, and the Youth Vote in America. They say, “The political apathy of today’s youth can be seen largely as a result of this disengagement from the parties”.

The Cassino’s continue, “Different groups within the general category of young people are looking for different things within the political world, and won’t become engaged in politics until they see those things”.

Politicians would be well advised not to hold their breath for youth to engage in politics any time soon. Today’s youth are the first generation to have realized for real change to occur, it must happen on an individual level rather than at an administrative level.

As Hollywood star Mark Ruffalo told Luke Rudkowski, a young American social activist and founder of grassroots media organization We Are Change, in a 2011 interview, “It’s not going to happen from above. We are the change that we’re waiting for”.

Mark Ruffalo's primary photo

Actor Mark Ruffalo

Ruffalo continued, “Anything worth a damn that’s ever happened on behalf of the people has always come up from the people and forced itself onto the power above. And that’s the way it always is and that’s the way it’s always going to be”.

Hear, hear, Mr. Ruffalo.


“Let’s pick up from yesterday’s teachings on the Gulf War,” Kentbridge began. He wrote Iraq 1990-1991 on a blackboard. “Now that the West has control of Iraq’s massive oil reserves, President Bush will be replaced.” The chalk squeaked as he wrote Bill Clinton on the board. “Bill Clinton will be our country’s next President. The election later this year is just a formality. The result has already been decided.”The Orphan Factory


Since winning the US Presidency, Barack Obama has been criticized for breaking almost every promise he made to the American people before running for office. And although he promised the opposite, his policies turned out to be almost a carbon copy of those of his predecessor George W. Bush – at least in terms of the big issues such as fighting unnecessary wars and protecting banksters ahead of everyday citizens.

Obama’s supporters insist his intentions were honest. Maybe they were and maybe he really believed he’d be the boss instead being a small cog in a giant wheel.

Then again before being elected Obama had little track record in Congress of voting against the major issues like Big Pharma or banking chicanery. As political activist Ralph Nader pointed out when he ran against him in the 2008 Presidential campaign, the man formerly known as Barry Soetoro was hardly a revolutionary.

So maybe Obama knew all along he’d just be another puppet for the Establishment and was happy to play along.

Or maybe the likes of JFK was speaking through a hole in his head when he warned Americans about “secret societies, secret oaths and secret proceedings,” and maybe the likes of Eisenhower was speaking through a hole in his when he warned of “the potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power.”

It’s likely none of us will ever know for sure.

Conspiracy theories explored range from false flag operations, international banksters, genius techniques of the elite and suppressed science to the Queen’s invisible riches, the Medical Industrial Complex and real-life Manchurian Candidates.

We welcome comment and feedback from you, our readers and followers…

 The Orphan Conspiracies: 29...



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 fusionand anti-gravitational propulsion, are either being withheld or blocked by governments, old-fashioned science academia and multinational corporations.

The Orphan Conspiracies: 29...

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.

The Orphan Conspiracies: 29...

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.

-Dr. Takaaki Musha, Director of the Advanced-Science Technology Research Organization (Japan) / Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Space Exploration (Mehta Press) / Former senior research scientist at the Technical Research and Development Institute of the Ministry of Defense, Japan.

*********************************************, the online news site that takes pride in “drilling beneath the headlines”, has done it again: it has conjured up the most insightful review we’ve managed to uncover yet on what surely will turn out to be one of the most talked-about books of 2014…

We refer, of course, to Luke Harding’s The Snowden Files, which provides an eye-opening overview of whistleblower Edward Snowden’s running battle with the National Security Agency after leaking thousands of classified files to news organizations.

Book reviewer Greg Miller, national security correspondent for The Washington Post, reminds readers via his review of Feb.21 that author Luke Harding is the same LH who is a correspondent for The Guardian newspaper, which broke the initial Snowden story.

Miller also reminds us that “the course that Snowden chose…surreptitiously stockpiling thousands of classified files, leaking them…and finally fleeing first to Hong Kong and then Russia has been polarizing. He has been condemned as treasonous and hailed as courageous. Either way, his story is one of the most compelling in the history of American espionage.”

Further excerpts (abridged) from Miller’s review follow:

“The Snowden Files”…is the first to assemble the sequence of events in a single volume. The book captures the drama of Snowden’s operation in often cinematic detail but doesn’t necessarily enhance our understanding of the magnitude and impact of the leaks. It is most successful when focused tightly on its then-29-year-old protagonist, whose youth and low station in the spy world were so at odds with the caliber of the material he accessed that his journalist contacts, upon meeting him for the first time, shook their heads in disbelief. Snowden comes across as almost icily composed. He seems to have been undaunted by the challenge of outmaneuvering his employer, the National Security Agency, the largest spy agency in the world. He choreographed his encounters with journalists and revealed himself to the world largely on his own terms…

…Although the book is billed as “the inside story of the world’s most wanted man,” there is no indication Harding had direct contact with his subject. Instead, it reads more like the inside account of Snowden’s interactions with The Guardian. The details drawn from those encounters are fascinating, if not always illuminating. Snowden was so concerned about security at the hotel where they met that the few times he left his room he placed a glass of water behind the door, positioned to spill on a piece of tissue paper marked with a symbol sketched in soy sauce…

…“The Snowden Files” won’t be the last book on this subject nor likely the best, with Gellman and Greenwald titles already in the works. But Harding has delivered a clearly written and captivating account of the Snowden leaks and their aftermath, succeeding beyond its most basic ambition, which was to arrive in bookstores first.

For the full review go to:

Many of the concerns Snowden has raised regarding America’s surveillance programs and its espionage methodologies are highlighted in our top rated conspiracy thriller series The Orphan Trilogy (The Ninth Orphan / The Orphan Factory / The Orphan Uprising). That’s not to say we necessarily sympathize with Snowden or approve of his actions, but we do sympathize with many of the ‘Big Brother’ concerns he and others like him have raised.

The Orphan Conspiracies: 29 Conspiracy Theories from The Orphan Trilogy will be a departure from the usual for us: it’s non-fiction whereas all our other published titles to date – including The Orphan Trilogy (The Ninth Orphan / The Orphan Factory / The Orphan Uprising) and Fiji: A Novel – are works of fiction.

Most of our research into conspiracy theories comes from scoping and writing The Orphan Trilogy between 2004 and 2013. The Orphan Conspiracies will highlight the 29 conspiracies that feature in the trilogy, and will provide in depth studies of each with additional comment.

Dedicated to truth-seekers and whistleblowers everywhere, just some of the conspiracies featured will include False Flag operations, MK-Ultra and the secret history of mind control, human cloning, the US Federal Reserve, suppressed technologies, Bilderberg, the pharmaceutical conspiracy, the myth of a free media, Project Paperclip, secret CIA prisons, Area 52 and, most appropriately, experimentation on orphans…and many more.

Meanwhile, The Orphan Trilogy continues to be a regular visitor to Amazon’s bestseller lists. While the series has fictional characters, it shines the spotlight on real organizations and also on shadow groups rumored to exist in the real world. In many ways it merges fiction with reality.

As one Amazon reviewer said of The Ninth Orphan (book one in the trilogy):

The authors manage to weave political intrigue, espionage, and eugenics into an exciting fabric of mystery and entertainment. The reader can’t but believe that the novel may not be only a work of fiction.

The Orphan Conspiracies will help readers bridge the gap between fact and fiction…

Book three in our conspiracy thriller series The Orphan Trilogy has maintained its average 5-star rating with Amazon reviewers with a stellar review from Lynelle Clark, Editor of the respected ‘Aspired Writer’ literary blog.

The Orphan Uprising

Here’s Ms Clark’s (abridged) review:

***** Great end to a series

A sad but fitting ending to a great series. It was my privilege to read all three books in this series, and what a wonderful and exciting read it was.

Book 3 continued years later with Nine and Seventeen as the main characters. Isabella in her supporting role as wife, mother and sister-in-law brought the human aspect back in as their struggle continue to outrun and outwit the Omega Agency.

This time the Agency’s target was Nine’s son, seven year old Francis. Abducted from his home, we once again traveled the world with Nine as he searched for his son. As always you are drawn into the plot as it unfolds with its many layers, that kept you guessing and hoping until the very end…

Fast paced and well written the story meet up with the family, Isabella far advance in her second pregnancy, and Nine struggling with a heart condition when their son is abducted. It took all of Nine’s skills to search and destroy the Agency that once trained him. Now he used everything he knew against them, running against time to get his son from this diabolic group.

Led by Naylor, they did everything they could to prevent Nine…This man was brutal, ruthless, and a heartless bastard with no emotions as he tried to catch Nine and Isabella, using people as he wished with no second thought. Their was no remorse as he hunts them down, his main objective to get them out of the way to go ahead with his cloning project, with Francis as his main focus…

I loved the way the authors brought in each orphan as Nine and Seventeen met them, reminiscing about their youth before they did the ultimate…As always the book was filled with descriptive and in-depth scenes, interesting characters and great story line. From Tahiti, Greenland, America and to the heart of the DRC this was evident. Plotting and scheming with Drug Lords and Militia Captain’s to get the job done…

Nine’s determination, skills and cunningness put him ahead of the Agency, willing to risk all to save his son. His humanity more at the forefront as he raced against his own heart problems, not willing to stop until…

A great book and series I can recommend to all readers who loves a good spy thriller with all the elements of action, adventure and humanity inside to give you hours of enjoyable reads…Loved it.

The following interview with James Morcan, co-author of our conspiracy thriller series, The Orphan Trilogy (The Ninth Orphan / The Orphan Factory / The Orphan Uprising) appeared in today’s edition of the prestigious Chicago web publication Gapers Block. You’ll see its interest in the trilogy stems from the fact that Chicago – and, indeed, Illinois – features prominently throughout.

The Orphan Trilogy’s Chicago connection

By Kathryn Pulkrabek


Good spies aren’t born; they’re made. Such is the case for the genetically altered spies in The Orphan Trilogy, a series of international conspiracy thrillers by New Zealand authors James Morcan and Lance Morcan.


Chicago is featured prominently as the site of the Pedemont Orphanage, where 23 orphans acquire the skills to become stealthy, cold-blooded killers. James Morcan was happy to shed some light on how the city’s famed work ethic influenced the decision to begin the story here,  and to discuss whether we’ll see any Pedemont Orphanage alums skulking around Chicago corners in the near future…

Q: The books of The Orphan Trilogy take place in a variety of exotic locales… Why did you choose Chicago, a city with blue-collar roots in America’s heartland, as the site of the Pedemont Orphanage, the place where it all began?

Even though the orphans in our series were genetically engineered by an extremely wealthy organization, their masters want them to develop “everyman” qualities in order for them to eventually be able to integrate with wherever they go. Being a working-class city, Chicago seemed like the ideal location as soon as we started writing the trilogy.

It’s also a city where the history is evident and the ghosts of earlier generations can be felt almost everywhere — generations who built the city brick by brick and through blood, sweat and tears. It’s not Los Angeles or Las Vegas or Miami. In fact, it’s the antithesis of those cities in many ways. Chicago always struck me as a more traditional American city where hard work is respected more than anything else. The folks I have met from Chicago and Illinois in general seem to me to be people who aim to do things well and with integrity. And those are precisely the values that the head of the Pedemont Orphanage, Tommy Kentbridge, wants to instil in the orphans for them to become the ultimate spies.

Q: What’s your relationship to Chicago? What kind of research did you conduct to create a snapshot of Chicago in the 1970s?

I visited Chicago on my travels not long after leaving high school in the late 1990s. I remember arriving via Amtrak at Chicago’s Union Station at about three a.m. and waiting in the Loop for the sun to rise. I remember seeing the city slowly awaken and then swarms of people arriving for a new day’s work. This experience remained vivid in my mind for some reason, and it inspired a sequence in The Orphan Factory (book two in the series) where Nine, our lead character, is running through the city center at dawn. Being a New Zealander, so much of America was foreign to me at first, but Chicago instantly felt familiar and friendly.

We did have to do quite a bit of research to ensure that late 1970s Chicago, which is when the trilogy starts, was portrayed accurately. We discovered the city has changed a lot with certain communities being quite different between then and now, or in some cases are no longer recognizable.

Q: The Orphan Trilogy shows us that institutions are not necessarily to be trusted, while Number Nine’s individualism is the key to his freedom. Which institutions, organizations and events in particular inspired this view, and who are some individuals you admire for pursuing freedom at any cost?

A combination of things inspired The Orphan Trilogy. Certain events like the bailout of corporations ahead of regular citizens during the global financial crisis and the invasion of vulnerable mineral-rich countries post-9/11, certainly influenced our writing. In recent times, more and more citizens seem to be sensing there must be authorities within governments that are not “for the people,” but actually against the people. More than anything else, we believe that’s why our series is proving to be popular and is establishing a loyal fan base of readers worldwide.

Nine does indeed have that spark of individualism which manifests as rebellion against his masters. Yet he also represents every person who desires justice and freedom. Individuals who we admire and who influenced our themes in the series include Nelson Mandela, Bobby Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Julian Assange and Mahatma Gandhi.

Q: The trilogy’s first novel, The Ninth Orphan, is being developed as a feature film. Any chance that you will shoot on location in Chicago? Which actor would you like to see cast as Number Nine?

The Ninth Orphan film adaptation will be shot partly in Chicago and Illinois. Other locations will include Paris, Beijing, London and Manila. We have the perfect actor in mind for the lead role, but as we are also film producers, we learned long ago never to mention an actor’s name until negotiations are complete. Sorry if that sounds evasive…I guess the film industry and spy fields have much in common!

Q: The orphans are endowed with some amazing genetically enhanced abilities. If you could give yourself such an ability, what would it be?

Mentally speaking, speed-reading would be handy, as would being able to speak a large number of languages. Physically, I’d love to be a martial arts genius like the orphans are. As we mention in the novels, though, their advanced DNA is only one side of the equation, and these orphans are certainly not super heroes or anything like that. That’s just the “nature” side. There is also the “nurture” side, which is where their comprehensive education comes in. Having gone through the traditional education system and finding it laborious and uninspiring, it was fun to write about a more accelerated form of education inside the Pedemont Orphanage.
