That's Satanism!- Part II
Ronald- 6 Wilson- 6 Reagan- 6
--- To elaborate on two things briefly touched on in the first post!
Here's one side of the coin:
The Black Guerrilla Family (also known as the Black Family or the Black Vanguard) is a prison gang founded in 1966 by George Jackson while he was in the San Quentin State Prison in Marin County, California, north of San Francisco. The gang is ideologically-based, established as an African-American Marxist revolutionary organization. It was founded with the stated goals of eradicating racism, maintaining dignity in prison and overthrowing the United States government. Historically, it was associated with a number of leftist groups, including the Black Liberation Army, Symbionese Liberation Army and Weather Underground. The Black Guerrilla Family is strongly organized on both the East and West coasts, and cooperates with the Nuestra Familia.
And the other (just so you see where the parameters are)...
Rennie Davis (born Rennard Cordon Davis, 1941) was a prominent American anti-Vietnam War protest leader of the 1960s. He was one of the Chicago Seven.
Later, in the early 1970s, he became a follower of Guru Maharaj Ji and was one of the spokespersons for and speakers at the widely publisized Millennium '73 event organized by Divine Light Mission in the Houston Astrodome. He described the arrival of Guru Maharaj Ji as, "The greatest event in history...If we knew who he was we would crawl across America on our hands and knees to rest our heads at his feet."  Texas Monthly cited Davis as stating: "This city is going to be remembered through all the ages of human civilization.". An Op-ed in The San Francisco Sunday Examiner said about Davis "whether [he] had undergone a lobotomy: If not, maybe he should try one."
Davis later became a venture capitalist and lecturer on meditation and self-awareness. Davis is the founder of Foundation for a New Humanity, a technology development and venture capital company commercializing breakthrough technologies.
Ok, and back to the show...
David Vaughan Icke, (born April 29, 1952) is a British writer and public speaker who has devoted himself since 1990 to researching "who and what is really controlling the world." A former professional football player, reporter, television sports presenter, and spokesman for the Green Party, he is the author of 20 books explaining his views.
Icke argues that he has developed a moral and political worldview that combines New Age spiritualism with a passionate denunciation of what he sees as totalitarian trends in the modern world, a position that has been described as "New Age conspiracism."
At the heart of Icke's theories is the view that the world is ruled by a secret group called the "Global Elite" or "Illuminati," which he has linked to The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, an anti-Semitic hoax. In 1999, he published The Biggest Secret, in which he wrote that the Illuminati are a race of reptilian humanoids known as the Babylonian Brotherhood, and that many prominent figures are reptilian, including George W. Bush, Queen Elizabeth II, Kris Kristofferson, and Boxcar Willie.
Icke's core ideas are outlined in four books written over seven years: The Robots' Rebellion (1994), ... And the Truth Shall Set You Free (1995), The Biggest Secret: The Book that Will Change the World (1999), and Children of the Matrix (2001). The basic conspiracy theory is that the world is controlled by a network of secret societies referred to as the "Brotherhood," at the apex of which stand the "Illuminati" or "Global Elite."  The goal of the Brotherhood is a world government, a plan that Icke says was laid out in the anti-semitic hoax, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, which Icke says are really the revealed plans of the Illuminati. Icke, in common with many other conspiracy theorists, says the methods of these conspirators include control of the world's economies and the use of mind-control techniques.
The Global Elite controls the Brotherhood and the world using what Icke calls a "pyramid of manipulation," consisting of sets of hierarchical structures involving banking, business, the military, education, the media, religion, drug companies, intelligence agencies, and organized crime. At the very top of the pyramid are what Icke calls the "Prison Warders," who are not human. He writes that: "A pyramidal structure of human beings has been created under the influence and design of the extraterrestrial Prison Warders and their overall master, the Luciferic Consciousness. They control the human clique at the top of the pyramid, which I have dubbed the Global Elite."
Icke cites the Holocaust, the Oklahoma City bombing, and the September 11, 2001 attacks as examples of events financed and organized by the Global Elite. British journalist Simon Jones writes that, according to Icke, "Ordinary people are being massively duped into believing that the ordinary course of world events are the consequence of known political forces and random, uncontrollable events. However, the course of humanity is being manipulated at every level. These individuals arrange for incidents to occur around the world, which then elicit a response from the public ('something must be done'), and in turn allows those in power to do whatever they had planned to do in the first place." Icke refers to this as problem-reaction-solution, a variation of Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel's "Hegelian Dialectic".
In 1999, Icke wrote and published The Biggest Secret: The Book that Will Change the World, in which he identified the extraterrestrial Prison Warders as reptilians from the constellation Draco.They walk erect and appear to be human, living not only on the planets they come from, but also in caverns and tunnels under the earth. They have cross-bred with humans, which has created "hybrids" who are "possessed" by the full-blooded reptilians. The reptiles' hybrid reptilian-human DNA allows them to change from reptilian to human form if they consume human blood. Icke has drawn parallels with the 1980s science-fiction series V, in which the earth is taken over by reptiloid aliens disguised as humans.
According to Icke, the reptilian group includes many prominent people and practically every world leader from Britain's late Queen Mother to George H.W. Bush, Hillary Clinton, Harold Wilson, and Tony Blair. These people are either themselves reptilian, or work for the reptiles as what Icke calls slave-like victims of multiple personality disorder: "The Rothschilds, Rockefellers, the British royal family, and the ruling political and economic families of the U.S. and the rest of the world come from these SAME bloodlines. It is not because of snobbery, it is to hold as best they can a genetic structure — the reptilian-mammalian DNA combination which allows them to 'shape-shift'."
In Tales From The Time Loop and other works, Icke states that most organized religions, especially Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, are Illuminati creations designed to divide and conquer the human race through endless conflicts. In a similar vein, Icke believes racial and ethnic divisions are an illusion promoted by the reptilians, and that racism fuels the Illuminati agenda.
Relationship with the far right
Michael Barkun, Professor of Political Science at the Maxwell School, Syracuse University, writes that Icke has moved aggressively to increase the size of his audience with the use of an elaborate website, by arranging speaking tours in the UK, North America, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa, and by selling books and videotapes.
Barkun writes that Icke has "clearly sought to cultivate the extreme right," but that the relationship is tense because of the New Age "baggage" that Icke brings with him. Barkun cites the London Evening Standard, which wrote in 1995 that: "uncanny parallels are emerging between Icke's thoughts ... and the writings of senior figures in the armed militia movement in America." Barkun writes that Icke's relationship with militias and Christian Patriots is complex. On the one hand, Icke believes the Christian patriots to be the only Americans who understand the truth about the New World Order, but on the other, he allegedly told a Christian Patriot group: "I don't know which I dislike more, the world controlled by the Brotherhood, or the one you want to replace it with."
10 Ways (And Then Some) of Seeing David Icke and His Reptilians
1. David Icke means Shape-Shifting Reptilians from the fourth dimension, just like he says. And he really believes in them, as suggested by this excerpt from Jon Ronson’s excellent book, Them: Adventures with Extremists. (Although it leaves out the ambiguous ending where one Icke-o-phile is caught making an anti-Jewish remark, for which Icke is not present.)
2. David Icke means Shape-Shifting Reptilians, even though he doesn’t believe in them. He’s simply updated the idea of a metaphysical scapegoat from demons and evil spirits to trans-dimensional, humanoid reptiles. It’s a pretty great innovation, especially since these string-pullers are shape-shifters. If at some point, we see the down-fall of the Bushes, the Royal Family…and Boxcar Willie, but the world fails to become utopia, then Icke-o-philes can simply say that the shape-shifters shape-shifted into other powerful people and celebrities. Barack Obama, Fred Thompson and Ray “The Streak” Stevens, perhaps.
3. When David Icke says reptilians, he means the hundreds of irritating pet lizards he secretly keeps who, coincidentally, also happen to have names such as Bill Clinton, Baron Rothschild, Tony Blair and…Boxcar Willie.
4. David Icke means Geckos, specifically. And the reason Geiko Insurance recently replaced their gecko mascot with a caveman is because they realized they were giving too much away and didn’t want us getting wise to it.
5. Icke means trans-dimensional dinosaurs. The short-lived mid-90’s sitcom Dinosaurs was aimed at softening us up for the eventual invasion. Those weren’t Muppets.
Jim Henson was also a dinosaur.
6. David Icke means “Jews.” After all, there is definitely an other-worldly racial element to Icke’s lizard-scapegoats. Will Banyan does a good job of highlighting this early in his 2003 Paranoia Magazine review of Icke’s Alice in Wonderland and The World Trade Center Disaster:
…Icke tells us that behind the manufactured movie that is “life” there is a network of families that are distinct from the rest of [us] by virtue of having a “different DNA than the rest of the population (pp. 1, 2).” At the end of his book Icke reveals that this different DNA is a product of interbreeding between humans and “a non-human race” (p. 468). The consequence of this “corrupted DNA” is that these hybrids “do not have the same emotional responses as the rest of the earth people.”…
Besides not having any scientific evidence to support these contentions, it is interesting to note that Icke is effectively reviving Social Darwinism, but with a twist. Icke is actually telling us that anyone who is politicaly powerful or extremely rich is that way because they are not genetically pure members of the human race. Under Icke’s formula they are the hereditary unclean who are devoid of the natural inclinations of all pure humans to be good and kind and collectivist in intent and deed. They seek to dominate, to have more material things than the rest of us, and even to kill, torture, and rape us, because they cannot help it–it is written in their genes–and because of their corrupted DNA they are more easily possessed by “reptilian entities of the inter-space plane” (p. 469).
Certainly, Nazi philosophy had a large Social Darwinist component. Likewise, Hitler and his posse, from their early days as beer hall hooligans and street thugs all the way up to their eventual rise to political power, believed themselves to be the oppressed underdogs fighting against a less-than-human, yet incredibly “clever” race that operated a global conspiracy. Icke, too, paints us as helpless underdogs under the thumb of less-than-human, but very clever global conspirators. I’ll allow for distinction here. Hitler believed his perceived enemies were one hundred percent non-human. In contrast, Icke paints his enemies as at least half-human, with the added bonus that their maliciousness is really not their fault. It’s their genes, plus the trans-dimensional reptiles pulling their strings. But is that an improvement?
The above is not proof that Icke is some sort of crypto-Nazi. However, it makes one wonder, even if plenty of the folks he pegs as reptiles (or half-reptiles), like the nefarious Boxcar Willie or the Bushes are not ethnically or religiously Jewish at all.
Yet, there’s another thing to make one wonder and that’s the shady crypto-Nazi characters that have clustered around Icke. For instance, Icke received praise from Combat 18, the violent British neo-Nazi outfit once led by David Myatt, a sinister fellow who really is a shapeshifter (though not of the reptilian variety).
Mark Honigsbaum has written about the apparent link between the more extreme New Age proponents and the far-right armed militia movement in the U.S.  Icke’s books contain multiple references to the “Illuminati,” which Icke and the militia movement believe constitutes the secret government they call the “New World Order”. In 1995, Honigsbaum wrote in the London Evening Standard that Combat 18, the British neo-Nazi group, was publicizing Icke’s speaking tour of the UK in its internal magazine, Putsch. The magazine wrote that Icke spoke about “‘the sheep’ and how the ‘illuminati’, uses them for its own ends”.  The story continued: “[Icke] began to talk about the big conspiracy by a group of bankers, media moguls etc. — always being clever enough not to mention what all these had in common.” “
In Icke’s defense, having racists among your fan-base does not make one a racist. Nevertheless, citing the Protocols of Zion is going to attract a certain element, no matter how one re-interprets that infamous tract; and you’d be foolish to not realize that.
You’d also be foolish, in my view, to use the Protocols anyway when anyone who spends a little time at a decent university library or online can find and read the source it was cribbed from: Maurice Jolly’s A Dialogue in Hell between Machiavelli and Montesquieu. If you focus enough time, you can even find a book which contains The Protocols along with Jolly’s original satire against Napolean III and preceded by a full apology by Henry Ford for ever having promoted The Protocols or anti-Semitism. (I found such a book back in college and devoured it over two days. I want to say it’s Bernstein’s The History of a Lie, but it’s been quite some years and I can’t find full text online to corroborate. Sorry.)
The story, as recounted in a 1978 article by J.H. Hunting (reprinted here):
In August 1921 Mr. Phillip Graves, correspondent of the London “Times” in Constantinople came into the possession of a small book in a tattered condition. Such an insignificant incident may well have passed unnoticed and been swallowed into oblivion had not Mr. Graves recognized a sentence as being identical with one of the “Protocols”. Yet, THIS BOOK HAD THE NAME “JOLI” AS THE AUTHOR!
Mr. Graves compared the book written by Monsieur Joli with a copy of the “Protocols” and in it he found repeated word for word, paragraph for paragraph and page for page the text of the earlier book written by Joli. The only alteration was that instead of the word “Zion” Joli had written “France”, and instead of “We the Jews” the original book had “The Emperor”!
The book written by Joli was a satire directed against Napoleon III and was entitled “Dialogue in Hell between Machiavelli and Montesquieu”. IT HAD NOTHING WHATEVER TO DO WITH THE JEWS!
In three consecutive issues dated 16th, 17th and 18th August, 1921 the London “Times” printed long extracts from the “Protocols” side by side with Joli’s “Dialogue in Hell”. Thus was the infamous forgery exposed as ONE OF THE MOST INSOLENT FORGERIES OF ALL TIME.
Curiously, neither Icke nor the late William Cooper (who even included The Protocols as an appendix to Behold a Pale Horse) bother to acknowledge this information.
It makes one wonder.
Icke, for his part, has claimed Combat 18 is an ADL front(!), which would be rather curious given the former’s documented history of racist attacks and the involvement of neo-Nazi occultist David Myatt in Combat 18…
Not that such a strange thing couldn’t be true (indeed stranger things have occurred), but it would take quite a bit of evidence to convince this writer.
7. Icke believes the reptilian alien thing, but he’s being manipulated by shady intelligence agencies to put forward a crypto-fascist conspiracy myth, complete with Bullwer-Lytton’s hollow-earth dwelling demonic and angelic races, recast as trans-dimensional aliens (Vril, anyone?).
Icke first had his “break” from consensus reality via the revelations of a medium. You’ll find plenty of mediums involved in this sort of thing, and they have an odd track record– from the “ascended masters” of splinter theosophist groups, to the I AM movement, “The Nine” and so on– of advocating racist and totalitarian forms of government.
And Icke’s story finds an interesting complement in another “underground” figure who has garnered an equally polarizing fascination from the media and the public. I tell you who that person is in a minute, but first a little background on Icke.
Icke’s story is that of a former soccer star, then sportscaster and Green Party activist who takes a huge New Age turn after becoming the beneficiary of other-worldly revelations about his importance as a future leader, healer and prophet. The tale has a family resemblence to the tale of Claude Vorilhon, a.k.a. Rael. Vorilhon was a automobile test driver and journalist who in 1973 had an encounter with something he believed to be an extraterrestrial. This alien revealed itself to be one of the “Elohim” spoken of in the Bible and told the future Rael that he was to be the next in a long line of messengers for the Space Brothers, joining the ranks of Jesus, Buddha, Moses and Muhammed. Rael, as prophet, started a religious movement advocating technocracy, better living through genetic manipulation and, umm, sensual meditation. Icke as prophet got publicly ridiculed into hiding. He then resurfaced as the avatar of conspiracy culture we know of today, warning us of our hidden reptilian controllers and their plans for world government.
The revealer of Icke’s life mission: a medium. The revealer of Rael’s: a Space Brother. Both types of sources have a very ambiguous track record for veracity, not to mention purity of intention.
Maybe Icke and Rael are two sides of the same Hegelian Dialectic?
8. David Icke is creating an ARG: you and the “reptilians” are the stars.
9. David Icke is a shameless New Age huckster. He took the 80’s television series V, which featured lizards disguised as humans invading and taking over the globe, and combined it with neo-Gnostic mythology a la The Matrix. Finally, he added a pinch of feel-good New Age theology and deliberately created a slam dunk “conspiracy entertainment” product that would appeal to a large audience of varying disaffected bourgeois niche markets.
The consumer is entertained. The producer is made wealthy. Both seem happy.
10. David Icke is a reptilian shape-shifter implicating shape-shifting rivals in power. One of the oldest tricks in the book.
And here are two to grow on:
11. David Icke is a knowing disinformation agent of some agency or another, muddying the waters by adding palpable bullshit in with actual facts. His activities do several things. First, they give sanction to the mainstream media to ignore the genuine information. It also supplies them with the perfect straw-man version of a conspiracy researcher in the person of Icke. With Icke’s more outlandish-sounding theoires, it’s that much easier to misrepresent, and debunk all investigative reporting into para-political and esoteric topics without having to look at individual cases and individual researchers. All you have to do is say, “They’re all like Icke.”
Icke’s activities also give a majority of people the permission, via media sanction, to likewise mechanically dismiss anyone discussing these topics without really having to listen or think. These people can simply add a pre-conditioned witty remark about “reptilians” to the usual “tinfoil hat” jokes and be done with it.
What a great time-saving device!
For another group of people, Icke’s more dubious claims serve to give them another, more edgy line of consumerist product to consume. They can buy the books, watch the videos and remain on their couches. At the same time, they get an ego-boost from getting to fancy themselves as holding edgier, cooler and more rebellious thoughts than the rest of their friends. Take those edgy thoughts, coupled with the hippest jeans, and the trendiest diets, and this conspiracy-consumer is ready to impress all the squares!
For a much smaller group of people, the True Believers, the more outlandish Icke’s statements and activities, the more stridently they must self-identify with him as a leader of a movement. Given this dynamic, you have the potential makings of yet another personality cult to siphon off human energy, individual self-direction, productive time and free thought.
And all of the above-mentioned groups stay right where they are, trapped within the Spectacle.
12. David Icke is a family man, of British extraction, who has been through the looking-glass and is still attempting to make sense of it all.
Reptilian humanoids are a common motif in mythology, folklore, science fiction, ufology, and the conspiracy theories of John Rhodes and David Icke. They are variously said to be beings that evolved on Earth parallel to humankind, extraterrestrials, supernatural entities, or the remains of a pre-Human civilization, and are known by many names, including Reptoids, dinosauroids, lizardfolk or lizardmen.
Reptilian humanoids have been common in the myths and legends of many cultures throughout history.
Cecrops I, the first mythical King of Athens was half man, half snake. In mythology, the Titans and Gigantes were winged-man princes with serpents as their retainers. This is illustrated, for example, on a frieze on the Pergamon Altar in Pergamum. In these images from Pergamum, some of which depict gigantomachy, one sees the giant Klyteros with huge serpents between his legs. Boreas (Aquilon to the Romans) was the Greek god of the cold north wind, described by Pausanias as a winged man with serpents between his legs.
In Indian scriptures and legends, the Naga (Devanagari: नाग) are reptilian beings said to live underground and interact with human beings on the surface. In some versions, these beings were said to have once lived on a continent in the Indian Ocean that sank beneath the waves. Indian texts also refer to a reptilian race called the "Sarpa" (Devanagari: सर्प). The Syrictæ (Greek: Skiritai; Latin: Sciritae) of India were a tribe of men with snake-like nostrils in place of noses and bandy serpentine legs.
The Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean and Japanese speak throughout their history of Lóng (Yong in Korean, Ryu in Japanese) or dragons, conceived of in both physical and non-physical forms, but rarely depicted in humanoid form, though they may assume a non-reptilian human form.
In China, Korea and Japan, underwater realms are referred to where the Dragon Kings and their descendants live, as well as a lineage of humans descended from a race of dragons. This lineage was often claimed by East Asian emperors, who were believed to be able to change from human to dragon form at will (the dragon is seen as good rather than evil in Eastern tradition).
The Last Judgement (detail) by Hieronymus Bosch, after 1482In the Middle East, reptilian beings ranging from certain Jinn to dragons and serpent-men have been spoken of since ancient times. In one of the apocryphal books falsely purporting to be the lost Book of Jasher, a serpent race is described.
In the Book of Genesis, God punishes the serpent for deceiving Eve into eating the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil by decreeing, "Upon thy belly thou shalt go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of your life" (Genesis 3:14 KJV). Traditionally, many have felt this implied that the serpent (a snake or reptile) had legs before then. Thus It is therefore often portrayed in Western art as a humanoid (woman) with a snake's tail, and sometimes lizard-like feet, as in a detail from Bosch's Last Judgement.
Even in modern times, some claim to have encountered reptilian humanoids. In many of these cases, a UFO is part of the encounter; alien abduction narratives sometimes allege contact with reptilian creatures.
An image of Dale Russell's hypothetical "dinosauroid"In a thought experiment published in 1982, paleontologist Dale Russell, curator of vertebrate fossils at the National Museum of Canada in Ottawa, conjectured that, had the Chicxulub meteorite not exterminated the dinosaurs 65 million years ago, bipedal predators (theropods) which existed at that time, such as Troodon, would have evolved into intelligent beings similar in body plan to humans. Troodontids had semi-manipulative fingers, able to grasp and hold objects to a certain degree, and binocular vision. Like most dinosaurs of the troodontid family, this imaginary creature, which Russell called the "Dinosauroid", would have had large eyes and three fingers on each hand, one of which would have been partially opposed. As with most modern reptiles (and birds), its genitalia would have been internal. Russell speculated that it would have required a navel, as a placenta aids the development of a large brain case, however it would not have possessed mammary glands, and would have fed its young, as birds do, on regurgitated food. Its language would have sounded somewhat like bird song. Russell's fanciful speculation has been met with criticism from other paleontologists since the 1980s, many of whom point out that Russell's Dinosauroid is overly anthropomorphic. Gregory S. Paul (1988) and Thomas R. Holtz Jr., consider it "suspiciously human" (Paul, 1988) and argue that a large-brained, highly intelligent troodontid would retain a more standard theropod body plan, with a horizontal posture and long tail, and would probably manipulate objects with the snout and feet in the manner of a bird, rather than with human-like "hands". Darren Naish (2006) pointed to the ground hornbill as a better model for an intelligent dinosaur. The artist Nemo Ramjet has used these new approaches to the original thought experiment to re-interpret the Dinosauroid, going so far as to create "Dinosauroid cave art", which depicts sentient, tool-using troodontids and other dinosaurs and pterosaurs, painted using sticks and feathers.
Reptilian humanoids "Reptoids"
Certain extraterrestrial intelligent beings, reptilian and humanoid in appearance, exist in and on Earth and have exerted (or are currently exerting) a profound effect on the development of human civilization.
There are many conspiracy theories involving reptilian extraterrestrials, or terrestrials of reptilian lineage. Many posit that the so-called Greys are in fact reptiles, and should be categorized as "Reptoids", others that Reptoids are an entirely different species working with or in opposition to the Greys. Some conspiracy promoters have also claimed that they are capable of shape-shifting (Icke, 2004).
One of the earliest, modern-day reports is that of Ashland, Nebraska police officer Herbert Schirmer. On December 3, 1967, Schirmer claims to have been taken aboard a UFO that appeared just outside of Ashland, where he encountered humanoid beings, 4 feet 6 inches to 5 feet (1.4 m to 1.5 m) tall, who wore close-fitting silvery gray uniforms, boots, and gloves. Their heads were thin, and longer than a human head. The skin on their faces was grey-white, the nose flat, the mouth merely a slit which did not move, even when they spoke. Their eyes were slightly slanted. While only slightly reptilian in their outward appearance, these beings bore a "winged serpent" emblem on the left side of their chest. Schirmer alleged that the beings are from another galaxy, and have bases on Earth.
John Rhodes was the first person to seriously investigate and publicly present claims of reptilian-humanoid sightings and/or contact (Ronson, Jon (2007-09-07). All Hail Our Lizard Overlords. Retrieved on 2007-11-22.). He established the Reptoids.com Research Center in 1997 to collect, review and present evidence of reptoid activity. He has also appeared on television and radio shows being interviewed about his discoveries and the science supporting the theory of Reptoids.
Rhodes contends that the majority of the reptilian humanoids are descendants of the dinosaurs and are biological byproducts of Earth evolution. Rhodes cites the 1980s thought experiment of Dale Russell as an example of scientific projection that correlates his "Evolved Reptoid" theory. (see above). Rhodes also states that human attention has been intentionally misdirected away from the underworld toward deep space, so the subject of underground Earth dwelling Reptoids and lost ancient civilizations can remain secret.
Rhodes also adds that most accusations of politicians shape-shifting into reptilian humanoids are totally unfounded, and that such reports are simply projections of collective fear and blame for the world's conditions. When questioned as to why Reptoids have become the proverbial "whipping boys" of modern ufology, he responds that it is because people tend to have a knee-jerk reaction to the image that western religious authorities have conditioned us to fear and distrust.
According to David Icke, reptilian humanoids are the force behind a worldwide conspiracy directed at manipulation and control of humanity. He contends that most of the world's leaders, from Bill Clinton, Hillary Rodham Clinton and George W. Bush to members of the British Royal Family, are in fact related to the 7-foot (2.1 m) tall, blood-drinking reptilians from the star system Alpha Draconis.
According to an interview with David Icke, Christine Fitzgerald claims that she was a confidante of the late Diana, Princess of Wales, and that Diana told her that the Royal Family were reptilian aliens, and that they could shapeshift. David Icke and others have claimed that U.S. President George W. Bush and his family are part of this same bloodline (Icke, 2004).
Icke claims, based on his exploration of genealogical connections to European royalty, that many presidents of the United States have been and are reptilian humanoids. In his view, United States foreign policy after September 11 is the product of a reptilian conspiracy to enslave humanity, with George W. Bush as a servant of the reptilians.
He also theorizes that the reptilians came to Earth from the constellation Draco. One type of reptilian entity that people see during alleged encounters resembles reptoids similar to those that are addressed in the studies of John Rhodes and the Reptoids Research Center(s).
The Hopi Indians of northern Arizona have traditions that recall a time when their "Snake Brothers" built and occupied underground cities in Arizona, California, Mexico and Central America. Once such underworld city is believed to have been built on the west coast, near the Pacific ocean, under Los Angeles, California.
Strangely enough, one engineer's search for LA's mythological underground city gained enough credibility to have his efforts presented as front page news in the Los Angeles Times newspaper, January 29th, 1934.
Top, dead center of the front page is an artistic rendition of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Below the image is an article titled,
"Lizard People's Catacomb City Hunted: Engineer Sinks Shaft Under Fort Moore Hill to Find Maze of Tunnels and Priceless Treasures of Legendary Inhabitants."
Quoted in it's entirety, the article follows for your review:
Los Angeles Times, January 29, 1934
"Lizard People's Catacomb City Hunted
Engineer Sinks Shaft Under Fort Moore Hill to Find Maze of Tunnels
and Priceless Treasures of Legendary Inhabitants
By: Jean Bosquet
Busy Los Angeles, although little realizing it in the hustle and bustle of modern existence, stands above a lost city of catacombs filled with incalculable treasure and imperishable records of a race of humans further advanced intellectually than the highest type of present day peoples, in the belief of G. Warren Shufelt, geophysicist mining engineer now engaged in an attempt to wrest from the lost city deep in the earth below Fort Moore Hill the secrets of the Lizard People of legendary fame in the medicine lodges of the American Indian.
So firmly does Shufelt and a little staff of assistants believe that a maze of catacombs and priceless golden tablets are to be found beneath downtown Los Angeles that the engineer and his aids have already driven a shaft 250 feet into the ground, the mouth of the shaft being on the old Banning property on North Hill street, overlooking Sunset Boulevard, Spring street and North Broadway.
And so convinced is the engineer of the infallibility of a radio x-ray perfected by him for detecting the presence of minerals and tunnels below the surface of the ground, an apparatus with which he says he has traced a pattern of catacombs and vaults forming the lost city, that he plans to continue sending his shaft downward until he has reached a depth of 1000 feet before discontinuing operations.
LEGEND SUPPLIES CLEW
Shufelt learned of the legend of the Lizard People after his radio X-Ray had led him hither and yon, over an area extending from the Public Library on West Fifth street to the Southwest Museum, on Museum Drive, at the foot of Mt. Washington.
"I knew I was over a pattern of tunnels," the engineer explained yesterday, "and I had mapped out the course of the tunnels, the position of large rooms scattered along the tunnel route, as well as the position of deposits of gold, but I couldn't understand the meaning of it."
Then Shufelt was taken to Little Chief Greenleaf of the medicine lodge of the Hopi Indians in Arizona, who's English name is L. Macklin. The Indian provided the engineer with a legend which, according to both men, dovetails exactly with what Shufelt say he has found.
FIRE DESTROYS ALL
According to the legend as imparted to Shufelt by Macklin, the radio X-Ray has revealed the location of one of the three lost cities on the Pacific Coast, the local one having been dug by the Lizard People after the "great catastrophe" which occurred about 5000 years ago. This legendary catastrophe was in the form of a huge tongue of fire, which "came out of the Southwest, destroying all in it's path," (continued on Page 5, Column 2) "...the path being several hundred miles wide." The city underground was dug as a means of escaping future fires.
The lost city, dug with powerful chemicals by the Lizard People instead of pick and shovel, was drained into the ocean, where it's tunnels began, according to the legend. The tide passing daily in and out of the lower tunnel portals and forcing air into the upper tunnels, providing ventilation and "cleansed and sanitized the lower tunnels," the legend states.
Large rooms in the domes of the hills above the city of labyrinths housed 1000 families "in the manner of tall buildings" and imperishable food supplies of the herb variety were stored in the catacombs to provide sustenance for the Lizard folk for great length of time as the next fire swept over the earth.
CITY LAID OUT LIKE LIZARD
The Lizard People, the legends has it, regard the lizard as a symbol of long life. Their city is laid out like a lizard, according to the legend, it's tail to the Southwest, far below Fifth and Hope streets, it's head to the northeast, at Lookout and Marda streets. The city's key room is situated directly under South Broadway, near Second street, according to Shufelt and the legend. (click image left)
This key room is the directory to all the parts of the city and to all record tablets, the legend states. All records were to be kept on golden tablets, four feet long and fourteen inches wide. One these tablets of gold, gold having been the symbol of life to the legendary Lizard People, will be found the record of history of the Mayans and on one particular tablet, the southwest corner of which will be missing, is found the "record of the origin of the human race."
Shufelt stated he has taken "X-Ray pictures" of thirty-seven such tablets, three of which have their southwest corners cut off.
"My radio X-ray pictures of the tunnels and rooms, which are subsurface voids, and of gold pictures with perfect corners, sides and ends, are scientific proof of their existence," Shufelt said. "However, the legendary story must remain speculative unearthed by excavation."
The Lizard People, according to Macklin, were of a much higher type of intellectuality than modern human beings. The intellectual accomplishments of their 9-year-old children were of equal of those of present day college graduates, he said. So greatly advanced scientifically were these people that, in addition to perfecting a chemical solution by which they bored underground without removing any earth and rock, they also developed a cement far stronger and better than any in use in modern times which they lined their tunnels and rooms.
HILLS ENCLOSE CITY
Macklin said legendary advise to American Indians was to seek the lost city in an area within a chain of hills forming,
"the frog of a horses hoof. The contour of hills surrounding this region forms such a design, substantiating Shufelt's findings," he said.
Shufelt's radio device consists chiefly of a cylindrical glass case inside which a plummet attached to a copper wire held by the engineer sways continually, pointing he asserts, toward minerals or tunnels below the surface of the ground, and then revolves when over mineral or swings in prolongation of the tunnel when above the excavation. He has used the instrument extensively in mining fields, he said."
World Shadow Government
The Trilateral Commission was established in 1973. Its founder and primary financial angel was international financier, David Rockefeller, longtime chairman of the Rockefeller family-controlled Chase Manhattan Bank and undisputed overlord of his family's global corporate empire.
Rockefeller's idea for establishing the commission emerged after he had read a book entitled Between Two Ages written by an Establishment scholar, Prof. Zbigniew Brzezinski of Columbia University.
In his book Brzezinski proposed a vast alliance between North America, Western Europe and Japan. According to Brzezinski, changes in the modern world required it.
"Resist as it might," Brzezinski wrote elsewhere, "the American system is compelled gradually to accommodate itself to this emerging international context, with the U.S. government called upon to negotiate, to guarantee, and, to some extent, to protect the various arrangements that have been contrived even by private business."
In other words, it was necessary for the international upper class to band together to protect its interests, and to ensure, in the developed nations, that political leaders were brought to power who would ensure that the global financial interests (of the Rockefellers and the other ruling elites) would be protected over those of the hoi polloi.
POCANTICO HILLS CONFABS
Although the initial arrangements for the commission were laid out in a series of meetings held at the Rockefeller's famous Pocantico Hills estate outside New York City, Rockefeller first introduced the idea of the commission at an annual meeting of the Bilderberg group, this one held in Knokke, Belgium in the spring of 1972.
(The Bilderberg group is similar to the Trilateral Commission in that it is funded and heavily influenced by the Rockefeller empire, and composed of international financiers, industrialists, media magnates, union bosses, academics and political figures.
(However, the much older Bilderberg group's membership is strictly limited to participants from the United States, Canada and Western Europe: i.e. the NATO alliance. For more on the Bilderberg group, keep an eye out for future stories in this paper.
The Trilateral Commission was unique, though, in that it brought the Japanese ruling elite into the inner councils of the global power brokers, a recognition of Japan's growing influence in the world economic and political arena.
RULING CLASSES UNITE
"The Commission's purpose is to engineer an enduring partnership among the ruling classes of North America, Western Europe and Japan -- hence the term 'Trilateral' -- in order to safeguard the interests of Western capitalism in an explosive world. The private commission is attempting to mold public policy and construct a framework for international stability in the coming decades.
"To put it simply, Trilateralists are saying: The people, governments and economies of all nations must serve the needs of multinational banks and corporations.
"In short, Trilateralism is the current attempt by ruling elites to manage both dependence and democracy -- at home and abroad."
Another Trilateral critic, now-retired Sen. Barry Goldwater (R-Ariz.), views the commission as a Rockefeller family operation through and through. According to Goldwater:
"The Trilateral organization created by David Rockefeller was a surrogate -- the members selected by Rockefeller, its purposes defined by Rockefeiler, its funding supplied by Rockefeller. David Rockefeller screened and selected every individual who was invited to participate."
David Rockefeller and Brzezinski then began the process of selecting from among the "Trilateral" nations the several hundred elite power brokers who would be permitted to join in Trilateral policymaking in the coming years.
One of the commission's primary goals was to place a Trilateral-influenced president in the White House in 1976, and to achieve that goal it was necessary to groom an appropriate candidate who would be willing to cooperate with Trilateral aims.
Rockefeller and Brzezinski selected a handful of well-known liberal Democrats and a scattering of Republicans (primarily of the liberal-internationalist bent) to serve on the commission.
And in an effort to give regional balance to the commission Rockefeller invited the then-obscure one-term Democratic governor of Georgia, Jimmy Carter, to join the commission.
ROCKEFELLER CENTER SOUTH
Rockefeller had longtime ties to the local Atlanta political and economic Establishment. In fact, much of Rockefeller's personal investment portfolio is in Atlanta real estate. (According to David Horowitz, co-author of The Rockefellers, "Atlanta is Rockefeller Center South.")
And Rockefeller himself had once even invited Carter to dine with him at the Chase Manhattan Bank several years before, as early as 1971, the year Carter began serving as governor.
Carter very definitely impressed Rockefeller and Brzezinski, more so than another Southern Democrat, Florida Gov. Reuben Askew, also selected to serve on the commission and viewed, like Carter, as a possible Trilateral candidate.
In fact, according to Brzezinski, "It was a close thing between Carter and Askew, but we were impressed that Carter had opened up trade offices for the state of Georgia in Brussels and Tokyo. That seemed to fit perfectly into the concept of the Trilateral."
Carter, in fact, like Askew, did announce for the 1976 Democratic presidential nomination, but because of Rockefeller's interest, Carter had the inside shot.
So much so that in a speech at the commission's first annual meeting in Kyoto, Japan in May of 1975, Rockefeller's man Brzezinski promoted the then-still obscure Carter to his fellow Trilateralists as an ideal presidential candidate.
CUT AND DRIED
From that point on, it was all cut and dried. According to Goldwater: "Rockefeller and Brzezinski found Carter to be their ideal candidate. They helped him win the Democratic nomination and the presidency.
"To accomplish this purpose they mobilized the money-power of the Wall Street bankers, the intellectual influence of the academic community -- which is subservient to the wealth of the great tax-free foundations -- and the media controllers represented in the membership of the CFR and the Trilateralists."
(The aforementioned Council on Foreign Relations -- is another Rockefeller-financed foreign policy pressure group similar to the Trilateralists and the Bilderberg group, although the CFR is composed solely of American citizens.)
(In his book The Carter Presidency and Beyond, published in 1980 by the Ramparts Press, Prof. Laurence H. Shoup devotes an entire chapter to demonstrating how the Trilateral-linked and Trilateral-controlled Establishment media promoted the presidential candidacy in 1976 of the then-obscure Georgia Gov. Jimmy Carter.)
Carter, of course, campaigned as a "populist" -- as a "man of the people" -- as an "outsider" with no ties to the Establishment. The fact is, however, Carter, who said he'd never lie, was an elitist, an insider, the Trilateral Commission's "man on the white horse."
And with the power of the commission and the Rockefeller empire and its media influence behind him, Carter made his way to the presidency, establishing the first full-fledged Trilateral administration, appointing numerous Trilateralists to key policymaking positions and carrying out the Trilateral agenda to the hilt.

Satanists use a pentagram with two points up, often inscribed in a double circle, with the head of a goat inside the pentagram. This is referred to as the Sigil of Baphomet. They use it much the same way as the Pythagoreans, as Tartaros literally translates from Greek as a "Pit" or "Void" in Christian terminology (the word is used as such in the Bible, referring to the place where the fallen angels are fettered). The Pythagorean Greek letters are most often replaced by the Hebrew letters לויתן forming the name Leviathan. Less esoteric LaVeyan Satanists use it as a sign of rebellion or religious identification, the three downward points symbolising rejection of the holy Trinity.
The use of the swastika was associated by Nazi theorists with their conjecture of Aryan cultural descent of the German people. Following the Nordicist version of the Aryan invasion theory, the Nazis claimed that the early Aryans of India, from whose Vedic tradition the swastika sprang, were the prototypical white invaders. It was also widely believed that the Indian caste system had originated as a means to avoid racial mixing. The concept of Racial purity was an ideology central to Nazism though it is now considered unscientific. For Rosenberg, the Aryans of India were both a model to be imitated and a warning of the dangers of the spiritual and racial "confusion" that, he believed, arose from the close proximity of races. Thus, they saw fit to co-opt the sign as a symbol of the Aryan master race. The use of the swastika as a symbol of the Aryan race dates back to writings of Emile Burnouf. Following many other writers, the German nationalist poet Guido von List believed it to be a uniquely Aryan symbol.
