What does the Bilderberg Group talk about at their secret meetings?
How can chemtrails not be real if you can look up at see them?
The government totally killed Martin Luther King, Jr., right?
Why does weird stuff keep happening in Montauk, New York?
Every shooting isn’t a false flag, but that doesn’t mean none of them are, yes?
Chances are, someone you know has asked you that question at some point. Or maybe they brought it up in casual conversation like it was the most normal thing. Maybe you had an answer for them, maybe you made one up, and maybe you just ran away screaming. Who could blame you?
But really, these questions are natural. They’re normal. Maybe they’re even healthy. Things happen in the world, and we simply can’t make sense of them – because they don’t make sense. Events that aren’t supposed to occur, incidents nobody can explain, times when the people in power are clearly lying to us.
They are the questions we all ask ourselves. These are questions that I’ve been asking myself for years.
So I wrote a book about it. And now you can buy it.
“The World’s Worst Conspiracies,” out on October 15th through Arcturus Publishing, looks at 25 of the most prevalent, most talked-about, and most mysterious conspiracies and conspiracy theories of the last 50 years. It’s a short, easily-digestible hardcover book full of beautiful color photos that will make a great gift to the nascent conspiracy believe in your family or the perfect way to educate yourself about all the weird stuff your aunt posts on Facebook that doesn’t seem right…but you aren’t sure why.
Starting with the germ of each conspiracy theory, we examine the basics. What is it? Why do people believe it? What really happened? And why does this matter? Ultimately, the majority of conspiracy theories don’t just appear fully-formed: they come from somewhere. And people believe them for a reason, even if they were debunked or explained long ago.
If nothing else, the book will prepare you and sharpen your critical thinking skills for the deluge of conspiracy theories sure to come related to the 2020 election. Conspiracy theories literally put the president in office, and he reflects them back to his supporters.
This is the book that will tell you what’s really going on.
To get started, here’s an excerpt from the book’s chapter on the Reptilian conspiracy theory, which claims that some of the most powerful people on Earth are not people at all, but disguised lizard-like humanoids bent on draining our blood and taking control of our lives.
Where did they really come from? A mix of the poison pen of an anti-Semite, and some old pop culture tropes.
Reptoid. Reptilian. Draconian. Saurian. Lizard men. “Annunaki.” Lizard aliens. The Reptile Elite. While they go by many names, all describe reptile-like aliens from a faraway star that have infiltrated Earth’s governments, taking human form to manipulate events on the planet. By taking human beings and harvesting us for scientific information (through devouring our flesh and blood, naturally), the reptilians have wormed their way into our society, taking control of our nations, paving the way for their eventual invasion – and our conquest.
Reptile-like aliens are a stock trope of both conspiracy theories and science fiction, usually given shape-shifting and mind controlling powers, and almost always bent on doing evil to humans. But they’re also a huge part of ancient mythology, literature, folklore, pseudohistory, and even video gaming. Many different cultures have depicted winged serpents, man-snakes, and lizard people as part of their creation myths. With so many depictions of reptile aliens, and so many deeds ascribed to them, it can be difficult to keep track of what is an actual, legitimate legend about leathery visitors from the sky, and what’s just the ravings of an unhinged fringe author.
So are reptoids real? Are they walking amongst us, wearing the skin of Queen Elizabeth, Barack Obama, Warren Buffett, Hillary Clinton, and other leaders? Do they have underground bases around the United States? Are they waging a war with other, equally powerful aliens? And have they been planning their conquest for thousands of years?
12 feet tall, blood-drinking, shape-shifters – or not
The longer a conspiracy theory sticks around, the more irrelevant details it picks up. So any dive into the mythology around the reptilian alien theory becomes bogged down in fake alien hierarchies, biology, geology, and history. Some of it intertwines with ours, some of it spirals off into digressions about angels, gods, and vast intergalactic empires.
The deeper one goes, the more it all seems like a mashup of Star Trek, the Bible, and heavily-trod UFO mythology. But little of it was simply made up on the spot. Reptilian humanoids have been part of pop culture for nearly a century, making one of their first literature appearances in the fiction of Conan the Barbarian creator Robert E. Howard in the late 1920’s. But it was prolific conspiracy theorist David Icke who first cemented the idea of a powerful Reptilian Elite pulling the strings on the human race in his 1998 book “The Biggest Secret: The Book That Will Change the World.”
The basics of Icke’s “biggest secret” are that reptile aliens from the star Sigma Draconis (18.8 light years from Earth) came to our world in ancient times. Seeing the planet as an opportunity for plunder, they used their shape-shifting abilities to interbreed with humans, spawning dozens of royal bloodlines, and quickly becoming our rulers. They now make up virtually every royal dynasty, most wealthy families, legendary cultural figures, bankers, great scientists, and nearly three dozen presidents. They are said to control unimaginable wealth, power, and military might. And they manipulate all of it in the service of fighting their own war, against the beings colloquially known as the “grey aliens” – a race of diminutive, large-eyed humanoids from Zeta Reticuli, located about 39 light years from Earth.
Icke’s reptilians were the culmination of years of his exploration of new age spirituality, alternative medicine, ancient legends, Christian eschatology, and prophecy. They were also derided as fascist, anti-Semitic, and completely insane. And they skyrocketed in popularity as Icke wrote about them more, and further developed his mythology.
Books like “Children of the Matrix,” “The David Icke Guide to the Global Conspiracy: And How to End It,” and “Human Race Off Your Knees” spilled our more details about the lizard-human hybrids that controlled our world, exactly what they’d done to us, and how we had to free ourselves from their clawed grip.
Every pre-order will help get the book out to a bigger audience, push it up Amazon’s lists, and land it more stores. Over the next few weeks, I’ll also be doing some other stuff on social media to get the book out, like Twitter AMA’s and livestreams.
Please know that I appreciate your readership, your support, and your faith in my work. There’s lots more to come, including some new projects that I can’t wait to share with you.
Thanks for your pre-order, and see you soon!
