As Oscar Hamilton III so memorably wrote, June is busting out all over. To reduce even the small amount of time I have to work on this site I've started a real job as a real journalist at a real newspaper. The site is still on holidays but I'll post some memories each month.
Quintessence Nook (15/6/2022)
June is Conspiracy Month in memory of archübermegaloon, Earl Gordon Curley, who failed to predict his own death despite being the world's greatest psychic. Here is some of the celebration from June 2002.
26 June 2002, Kooks Day, was chosen to launch the Earl Gordon Curley Memorial Echelon Page Click here to see it
As could have easily been predicted, many of the conspiracy sites from 2002 revealed too much truth and had to be suppressed and the site owners 404ed. You can't reveal secrets about the Illuminati (even if they are false secrets) or the Satanic nature of Bill Gates (at a conference in 2013 I mentioned the fact that the Bible mentions the word "windows" eight times, but the only time it includes the word "carbuncle" is in Isaiah 54:12, which says "I will make thy WINDOWS of aGATES, and thy GATES of carbuncles" and
There is a lot of money in the world. Someone must be controlling all this money, but who could these controllers be? I know I am not one of them, otherwise I would know where my money was and what it was doing. If I was in charge, my money would not be able to hide from me and run away. But I digress ... It may be obvious that someone is controlling the world's money, but the real question still remains - who is controlling the controllers? It would just be too easy for governments to manage their currencies but that cannot be allowed, for there are secret, shadowy organisations which need to be able to control governments. How better to do this than through a parallel economy, secretly managing the price of gold in order to finance secret activities. Oh, the governments think that they are really running these secret slush funds, but we know better, don't we?
It was the anniversary this week of the first flying saucer sightings, when Kenneth Arnold saw those famous shapes flitting across the sky. Since then much has been written, but not too much. Mystery still surrounds the history of flying saucers and the part they have played in the development of science and society since 1947. We still do not know the truth, because if we did we would surely be shocked at the extent of the cover-up. Evidence of the cover-up is, of course, that even after all this time we can find no evidence of the cover-up except for the denials of a cover-up, denials which can only reinforce the strength of the evidence. After all, if conspirators are doing their job properly, nobody else will know about the conspiracy. Nobody can prove this one, so it must be a very good one to have lasted so long.
Watergate - Confession to Conspiracy
This week marks the 30th anniversary of the Watergate break-in, and what better time to revisit that story to see what we have not yet been told? It must be obvious to all that there are still secrets about this incident, because governments were involved. What was being covered up must have been very serious for the rulers to sacrifice a President, and they didn't even have to use a trick cigar with a microphone in it. So what was being hidden, too terrible for even Richard Nixon to use to defend himself. Why, the link to the Kennedy assassination, of course. Is it any surprise that the people who had killed one President were prepared to get rid of another? You've heard the expression "New World Order", haven't you. And you've heard of the book "Brave New World" by Aldous Huxley? What was the name of the world ruler in the book? Who replaced Nixon? A coincidence? I think not. (Huxley also wrote "The Doors of Perception". Now you know why Jim Morrison was murdered.)
Something new that's actually something old
I've written a lot of short articles and news items here over the last two decades. Each month a couple of these pieces will be randomly selected. They might not always still be relevant, but that's the way history works.
Shaken baby Vileness (31/5/2014)
Meryl Dorey, ex-President of the Australian Vacination-skeptics Network, spoke at a wooness expo last weekend. A "debate" with her was scheduled but had to be cancelled. She claimed nobody would "debate" her, and when I offered she went Full Mental Jacket on Facebook and her blog, calling me all sorts of names. In the end it became logistically impossible for me to attend as I had commitments on both the days before and after, and getting from my place to the venue and back on the one day would have taken almost 23 hours (I live three hours from Sydney airport, for a start). This meant that she was free to produce her normal stream of lies. I'll have more to say about this next week, but for now I'll just mention that she again brought up the disgusting lies about vaccines causing Shaken Baby Syndrome and containing parts of aborted foetuses. (In answer to a question, she suggested that the products of abortion are sold to vaccine manufacturers to use as an ingredient. Apart from the obvious insanity of this idea, she knows it's not true).

A death (26/1/2008)
It has been impossible to pick up a newspaper or turn on the television news around my place this week without hearing the name Heath Ledger. His death hasn't just driven the media cult of celebrity to heights of frenzy not seen since Britney Spears' underwear was not seen, but has also triggered outbursts of lunacy from some of the other usual suspects. (This was not too surprising, as Ledger died on the day of a full moon.) First out of the blocks were the 911 Truthers, who knew for certain that he was murdered because he was about to reveal the truth about September 11, 2001. Why an Australian actor who wasn't in New York at the time might know something was not explained, but I am prepared to predict that similar claims will be made about any celebrity who dies in New York at any time. (I am going to suggest that John Lennon was murdered because he was about to write a song about the very early planning stages of the attack. He had joined the conspiracy in order to get revenge for the years when he was denied entry to the USA because of a conviction for marijuana possession.)
Then I turned on my television to see the awe-inspiring sight of the Reverend Fred Phelps sentencing all Australians to eternity in hell because one of us dared to act in a fictional work which contained scenes of homosexual activity. Fred has promised to picket Heath Ledger's funeral, but I have two messages for Fred: Perth is a long way from Topeka, and Australians might be a lot less tolerant of his idiocy than the folks at home.
