Conspiracy Theorist Who Blames the Rothschilds for the Civil War Claims History Channel Is Paying Him to Hunt for Giants and Treasure
I’m sure many of you have probably listened to the Canadian paranormal podcast Grimerica. This week, the hosts interviewed Xaviant Haze, a DJ and researcher of the “pre-diluvian” world who has produced books about ancient giants, space aliens, “international bankers,” and other conspiracies. He takes influence from Theosophy (especially the fictitious Brotherhood of the Serpent) and is blithely unaware (or purposely ignores) the darker turn historic attempts at blaming global catastrophes on “international bankers” have taken, e.g., in his Suppressed History of American Banking (2016), he blamed the Civil War on the Rothschilds, a claim found among anti-Semites. His newest book is The Donald Trump Conspiracy, a book that alleges that Trump stands in opposition to an evil New World Order. Haze claims that his publisher offered him “a lot of money” to write an anti-Trump book, but when he turned in a pro-Trump screed, the publisher refused to accept it and he self-published the volume. It’s good to know that publishers pay “a lot of money” to crappy researchers who have nothing original to say.
Haze’s interview was putatively about giants, but what I found interesting was his discussion of his research methodology, which reinforces my belief that most fringe types value storytelling and personal relationships far above facts. Haze states that he had been interested in ancient astronauts and lost civilizations from childhood, and he spent time talking to “old hippies” at the Theosophical Library when one New Ager started telling him a version of the colonial-era myth that the Welsh Prince Madoc colonized America in the Middle Ages, which this New Ager conflated with the modern story that America housed a race of red-haired cannibal giants. The former story can be found as far back as the time of John Dee, but the latter emerged only in the twentieth century, from a variety of misrepresented and misunderstood claims too tedious to list here. The hippie told Haze to read Barry Fell’s America B.C., and Haze found it “incredible.” He simply accepts Fell (and Velikovsky for that matter) at face value because he believes that anyone who was “suppressed” must be right. He also claims that Native Americans that he knows personally told him that there are buried giants but that they won’t tell most people about them.
The rest of his research, he said, developed from books by gigantologists Richard Dewhurst and Jim Vieira, old newspapers accounts, and tall tales from purported eyewitnesses. He also expressed upset that skeptics want to see the bones of giants before believing that hearsay accounts are true. He states that an undefined “we” plan to remove the bones of giants from “tombs in the mountains,” but he declined to state where the bones are or how he came to learn of them.
The hosts agree that there is “all this evidence” for giants and that giants are “an up-and-coming” mystery. Haze repeated the ancient astronaut claim that Watcher aliens genetically engineered Nephilim giants, and he said that “pre-Flood” giants were taller than post-Flood giants. He claims that “half the Bible” is about killing giants, which is demonstrably untrue. After listening to him, I came to doubt that he has ever read the Bible.
What makes me angry is that none of the people in the podcast seemed able to talk about their putative subjects of expertise at anything resembling depth, or even proficiency. Haze mostly mumbled about how “we are lucky we have Ancient Aliens” to broadcast fake facts about giants, but for the greater part of the interview, he offered only conspiracies and anti-mainstream philosophical statements.
There is a profound ignorance underneath his mumbling bluster. “They have the nerve to say that Göbekli Tepe is 10,000 years old but then want to maintain that slaves built the pyramids 5,000 years ago,” he rasped with his vocal fry. Consider that for a moment. Not only is he wrong about the conclusions of mainstream Egyptology (slaves did not build the pyramids), but he also seems both ignorant of and unwilling to learn about the difference between hunter-gatherer cultures like the kind that built Göbekli Tepe and state-level societies like Egypt. As Haze and the podcast hosts laugh about how archaeologists refuse to put ancient sites into “context,” they seem happy to assume that “civilization” everywhere and always means something akin to Atlantis.
Similarly, Haze seems baffled by the very idea of verifiable facts. Remember a few years ago when fringe types started to claim, based on a 2002 Chinese state media newspaper report, that some geological formations in China were the remains of prehistoric pipes from a 150,000-year-old extraterrestrial civilization? Haze not only accepted this claim at face value, he conflates it with the discovery in China of Bronze Age Caucasian mummies and declares that the pipes were the work of “red-haired cannibal giants” whose bodies were unearthed beside the pipes! If he bothered to do any research, he would have known that the state media in China attributed the site not to giants but space aliens! Anything he sees on YouTube also becomes grist for his “research.” He states all of this with the blasé credulity of a man for whom fact and fantasy intermingle. Indeed, when the hosts later bring up Erich von Däniken’s fabrication of a gold-filled cave built by space aliens, Haze said that the lies were “all cool” because “in the moment” there isn’t any way to tell truth from fiction, so as long as you “come clean” eventually, lying to readers is just fine in service of story.
Haze takes some time out to cite Andy White, whose research into giants’ “double rows of teeth” seems to have made an impression on Haze, mostly because it’s online, so it must be true. He concedes that there isn’t enough evidence to prove giants have double rows of teeth, but he wrongly believes that most giants had six fingers and toes per appendage because Goliath did, as did giants “everywhere in the Bible.” He confuses Goliath for the unnamed giant of Gath, a Rephaim, in 2 Samuel 21:20 (= 1 Chronicles 20:6), the only mention of a polydactyl giant in the Bible.
Despite his startling ignorance of his subject, Haze moved on to international banking conspiracy theories, and he alleges (falsely) that the United States and a conspiracy of “international bankers” purposely sank the Titanic in order to kill off all of the men who might have stopped the Federal Reserve from coming into being in 1913. “I don’t really believe in coincidence, so, you know…” he said before adding that the Titanic disaster was also “an insurance scam.” Well, I guess the international bankers wanted to profit off of it in every way. Just for kicks, Haze and the hosts add a raft of other conspiracy theories, including the strange claim that Mossad and the CIA are behind Islamic State.
And just to put the cherry on the sundae, Haze said that the History Channel has hired him to investigate giants and conspiracies, search for buried treasure, and other nonsense. According to Haze, the History Channel has forbidden him from revealing the truth about various claims, including the supposed gold-covered tomb of mummified ancient giants in Arizona found by Jesuit priest Bernardo Mittendorf (?), until after the new series in production makes it to air.
That is if the “international bankers” allow it. I’ve heard from Haze’s sources that they rule the entertainment industry, too.

One might as well as how long the horns of a rabbit are, or what the texture of a tortoise's fur is. But at least those examples from Buddhist philosophy are explicitly cited by the Buddhist philosophers as examples of things that do not exist.

Stone holes are made by the rabbits sharpening their horns during the rabbit rut.

C'mon man, it's jackalopes that are responsible for the stoneholes. Everyone knows rabbits aren't horny !

A D-list fringe personality, with no original ideas of his own, was actually hired by the History Channel? If this is true, HC is run by the mentally incompetent.

You know, if these people just transferred all their fringe work about cannibal giants, alien pyramids and such into the alternate history fiction genre, they'd probably be better off. Shake things up from Harry Turtledove rehashing what would happen if the South won the Civil War for a change.

The double rows of teeth remind me of the Martichora a mythical creature that supposedly lived in India that had a sting in it's tail, lions paws and the face of a man with a double row of teeth.

The Civil War was the fault of the Continental Congress, according to the Rev. Jonathan Boucher, writing shortly after its establishment in 1774.

What has happened to J. Hutton Pulitzer and Scott Wolter? Are they still partners? I haven't heard much from either one of them for a long time. Of course, I don't get on their web sites, but it would seem they would try to do something to get themselves noticed. I mean they could at least set themselves on fire and make ashes of themselves.
3/6/2017 05:31:42 pm
Giant bones would be "evidence," so if somebody found them, then there is no way wolter is involved.

I'm curious as to what the rise in the meme( an element of a culture or system of behavior that may be considered to be passed from one individual to another by nongenetic means, especially imitation) of giants signifies as of late.
3/6/2017 06:06:54 pm
My view has been that the rise of giants has been tied to a cultural revitalization movement centered on restoring 1950s-era world views. The argument among the fringe has been that if giants are real then Genesis is literally true, so Jesus will come back to save us all. Thus, the "giant" stories are really efforts, like creationism and Flood geology, to undo secularism, science, and all those processes that have undermined conservative Biblical values since the Enlightenment.
3/6/2017 06:51:23 pm
Another view is that belief in giants normalizes a feeling of powerlessness. "I feel powerless but that's okay, because giants! Of course I'm troubled by feelings of powerlessness because giants!"
3/6/2017 08:34:18 pm
1950 world views like communism should be contained, govt debt was a bad thing, most presidential advisors tended to come from physicists or industry not bankers or nonprofits, the USA was not put on earth to make the world safe for democracy or was pulled into wars in the middle east. A nation where inflation was low while wages grew so one spouse could stay home and raise the kids. While not perfect with a long way to go to finally end Jim Crow, the rejection of the iodotic idea of preemptive war was a very good thing. And let's be honest, as a percentage more Americans had better critical thinking skills than today. No the 50s were not the dark ages. And u could work a summer job and pay for college not take 100k in debt!

The focus on "fake degrees" is another slip, as was the term "straw man" before that. I noticed that the indignant "V" protested my earlier red herring connection with Joe Scales, while AMERICANEGRO was silent.
3/6/2017 10:16:13 pm
Gunn, or "At Risk," whatever you're calling yourself now, you have nothing from me but my deepest contempt, and as such, I don't spend much time on you. I have better things to do. When I spit in your face, it's because I feel the need to get out some venom and I don't give a shit about your feelings--nothing PERSONAL about it. There can't be, you're not a person to me. At most, I find your incessant buzzing about your delusions of grandeur obnoxiously distracting from my enjoyment, so I swat at you like I do any other insect bent on ruining a moment.
3/6/2017 10:34:26 pm
Ah! That makes so much sense. Thank you for the insight!

AMERICANEGRO, I kind of hesitate to say this, but you are really showing your ignorance when you keep saying you don't understand how three holes in a line with a "missing hole" doesn't make any sense, when this is the beginning of simple encoding understanding. I seriously didn't think you were this simple-minded, and I seriously doubt that you are, based on a few observations you made earlier on another blog subject.
3/7/2017 07:20:44 pm
I know this comment was directed at someone specific, but now I'm curious. What culture started this code? Where are confirmed examples? Did Vikings and later Scandinavian explorers wander around new lands looking for holes and runes in every rock they came across? Where there rune stones or stone holes found in the confirmed viking settlements in the new world?

You got my hopes up, At Risk/Gunn. I thought you were going to storm off in a huff leaving off posting here like you have before. Oh well, I'll just have to wait a bit longer, I suppose. It doesn't seem like it'll be too much longer.
3/8/2017 05:50:29 pm
MANDALORE, you sure added a lot here. The only comments I ever see you make are short, stupid comments like the one you just made. Trying to help, somehow, are you? Well, you just identified yourself as a blog troll, too. Do you feel any diffient now? You, like a few others here, love to hate fringe people. That is a flaw in this idea of a fair and balanced blog, having people like you around to clap and cheer when others attack. At least I can say: shame on you.
3/9/2017 05:30:41 pm
I tried to engage you in a conversation a few times a long time ago. When I asked for proof and evidence, or pointed out contrary arguments, you refused to listen, called me names, and otherwise attacked me. I found your behavior then, and now, insulting foolish. I'd love to go find those 'conversations' but your whining before you fled last time resulted in their deletion. You've managed to hide your ridiculous past on this blog. You don't respond to reasoned arguments, refusing to look past your own preconceived notions while criticizing others for not doing so, so why should I put any effort into it on my end?
3/7/2017 08:53:53 pm
Have you considered the possibility that I'm BigNick (BigN, Codeguy) and you've been played?

3/7/2017 09:44:25 pm
I feel like you take this too seriously to post comments about rabbit horns and triple penetration of a stone. I am curious though- I only recently noticed that the way I capitalized my name doesn't matter because it shows as all caps, yet you put it correctly as BigNick. Was that a lucky guess or are you a moderator?
3/8/2017 12:48:22 am
I'm smooth like a cat. It's what I would have done. Big Nick Nicholas was one of Coltrane's sidemen. Met him in a roadhouse years ago. To answer your question I have nothing to do with moderation. Speaking of which, remember that time Lot's daughters said "Come, let us make our father drunk with wine" and lo, they made him drunk with wine and he went into them and he knew them, thus pulling off the elusive double-daughter threeway? The demon god Jehovah's Bible is full of stories like that. Forty years to walk from Egypt to Israel and people say Asians are bad drivers? Don't get me started on Paul, the patron saint of genocide and closets.

At Risk: I am not a "demon", am not nasty, venomous, nor am I troll. I AM a daily reader of this blog, who clearly remembers your prior very public psychotic paranoid breakdown. I am sick to death of your tedious posts on this blog, touting your pet ideas: the KRS, and stone holes. Give it a rest, pal. These topics do not gain validity just because you vomit millions of disorganized thoughts at us time and time again. And don't try to deny your earlier breakdown. We all saw it.
3/8/2017 12:18:17 pm
Lurking for Years, study your comment. Where did you add anything constructive to a conversation? When a person opens a blog-door for the purpose of attack--with no intentions of adding anything, that person is by definition a blog troll. So, yes, I may certainly call you out on your adverse nature.
3/8/2017 06:46:20 pm
It's bad manners to constantly shoehorn your fantasies about stoneholes into every single discussion. Unlike the pantsless German youth in Gravity's Rainbow lying in meadows and worshipping their Sky God in the most direct manner possible, it seems that you go in a different direction. People have repeatedly told you that your stonehole input is not wanted. What does that make you?

Give it up, Voyles. Yes, I'm such a big, scary, meanie attack troll! You name calling me doesn't change the reality. And the reality is that you are desperate, to the point of being obnoxious and insanely repetitious, to get people on this blog to give approval to your half-baked ideas. I am doing nothing wrong, and I am certainly demonstrating no disrespect to Jason, who I admire tremendously. However, you do disrespect Jason, as well as the contributors to this blog, with your habitual posting of verbose, illogical dribble...over and over and over again.
3/8/2017 05:44:52 pm
You and the others I identified are the ones who brought negativity and a stench here to an otherwise friendly blog. Despite your protests, you are a blog troll, still in attack mode, which means you are a blog loser, hiding in obscurity, having fun attempting to be cruel. As about the only "fringe" person visiting here, I seem to be fair play, right? What a disturbing attitude you show, surely more repugnant than any of my repetitions, which have sometimes ending up in productive conversations. I have contributed to many subjects lately. You contributed nothing but attack. It must be hard living in your skin, attacking and not contributing anything at all meaningful. Maybe attacking others makes you feel bigger, huh, like a common bully? Did you do a good job of defending integrity here? What a blog joke you are. I certainly don't mind defending myself against anonymous and meaningless vomit like you.

And I would add that I view your claims to have OCD and TS as in your mind a "get out of jail free" card for calling someone "vomit". I think it's just cover for bad behavior you choose to engage in. Some would say "demonic behavior". At least you haven't slaughtered any Egyptian babies that we know of. On the other hand, it's not yet Passover, the canonical time for malevolent demons to slaughter Egyptian babies. You've just been mezuzahed.

I was not aware that rutting rabbits made the stone holes called mooring holes. I bet Dunn is also very interested in this new theory which I am sure can be backed up with long teeth rabbits. Just today I sent some 40 years of study to a young man in Minn. who is looking for the logic behind the stone holes. His name is Scott and attached is my responce to his request. Please send the rabbit poof so he can muddy up the picture. Scott - I will attempt to address your questions relating to the triangle stone holes called mooring holes. My 40 plus years in tooling may add a little to my understanding of how these holes were made. A flat chisel was the likely tool used. One of the two points of the flat tool was used to pivot the blade about 60 degrees from left to right with hammering force during the process. Stone does not cut smooth and more crushing is going on at the tool edge which generates a lot of dust like residue.

The International Bankers control Trillions of dollars and profit from major wars. Their involvement in the American Civil war and WW1 and WW2 is documented in Decent Into Slavery? by Des Griffin. I don't agree with the authors religious beliefs as I'm not a religious person. But his documentation of who profits from major wars is excellent.
