Yes, conspiracies are real. One only need look to their local newspaper for daily evidence of crimes committed as a result of collusion between two or more persons. No one would deny that. Nevertheless, if you dare suggest that conspiracies exist on a grand scale, you're often labeled as a paranoid kook or delusional nutcase. In his latest book, entitled Conspireality, hard-hitting investigative journalist Victor Thorn takes on the naysayers with a vengeance. Instead of floating conspiracy theories, Thorn delivers the facts and presents the hardcore evidence like a skilled attorney delivers his case to a jury. Although each individual chapter can be read as a stand-alone piece, a much bigger picture emerges as one digs deeper into the book. Ultimately, the reader is faced with an elaborate web of interconnected conspiracies that are difficult to dismiss as mere coincidence. What does the establishment of the Federal Reserve in 1913 have to do with the Watergate scandal that unseated President Richard M. Nixon? Why is the sinking of the Lusitania in 1915 a virtual mirror image of the World Trade Center attack on 9-11? Where is the common denominator between the Patty Hearst kidnapping, the Zodiac killings and government-funded mind control projects? These are only a few of the many questions answered in Thorn's masterpiece. Of even greater importance is Thorn's attention to the Frankfurt School, correctly identifying them as the architects of America's cultural demise from WWII to today. Perhaps this in itself is the most significant conspiracy of all considering that their hidden hand can be traced to the civil rights movement, feminism, beatniks, gay pride, black power, multiculturalism, abortion-on-demand and virtually all of the other counter-cultural infestations that have poisoned our nation and brought us to the brink of moral collapse. Which brings us now to Obama a product of the Frankfurt School and Marxist ideology. Thorn's 10 page chapter on this illegitimate U.S. president is a must read for anyone frustrated by the so-called debunkers who try their damnedest to lend credibility to Obama's fraudulent biography. Thorn has done the legwork of sifting through mountains of individual pieces of research on the subject. He cuts through the fat, separates fact from fiction, and delivers a concise deconstruction of Obama's mythical past. The end result is a brisk exposé on the undeniable inconsistencies, anomalies and outright fabrications that will leave even the staunchest Obama supporter without retort. Thorn reminds us that Americans have been playing against a stacked deck for well over 100 years and that the invisible prison-complex that continues to be built around them has been crafted from a blueprint drawn up long ago. Many of the cartels, families, cults and government agencies identified in one chapter find their way by only a few degrees of separation in another. The same can be said for the various strategies being deployed. Whether it relates to propaganda or government-sponsored terror, the synchronistic links Thorn makes are uncanny and compels even the most skeptical reader to consider where other connections can be made. Thorn does a masterful job of bringing the esoteric in alignment with history and current events. Once one understands the post WWII campaign that came to be known as Operation Gladio, it's easy to pick apart the official stories behind 9-11 or Norway s 2011 massacre. After you become familiar with the elaborate and coordinated cover-up of downed TWA Flight 800, the theories behind the assassination of John F. Kennedy Jr. and Iraq-war whistleblower Pat Tillman become much more plausible. --Keith Johnson - American Free Press
More than a dozen prominent thinkers, activists, investigators and journalists contributed to the making of Conspireality. Some of those exclusively interviewed by Thorn include AFP s own Michael Collins Piper and Pete Papaherakles, The Creature from Jekyll Island author G. Edward Griffith, Former FBI Special Agent Ted Gunderson, and independent filmmaker John Hankey. Thorn's interview with conspiracy researcher Adam Gorightly is particularly intriguing. His well-documented revelations about convicted killer Charles Manson serves as a compelling argument that the cult leader was a probable victim of mind control and that the Tate-LaBianca murders were used to create a strategy of tension a ploy devised to erode our civil liberties and bring about a Police State. This strategy of tension is a theme that is revisited several times in the book and is intrinsically linked to every significant New World Order plot from WWI to present day. I can find no better way to conclude the review of this book than to lift a quote from the author himself. In the final paragraph of his introduction to Conspireality, Thorn writes: In the end, it's clear to those in the know that conspiracies are a reality and once an individual willingly opens this doorway and enters that life-altering realm, they also open their Self to all the anomalies associated with synchronicity. It's one helluva ride, and most certainly better than the so-called normalcy than the rest of them have to suffer through. --Keith Johnson (part two) - American Free Press
