Before we dive into David Wilcock’s bizarre claims about Atlantis and Antarctica (which have now spread to the mainstream tabloid media via repetition across the internet), I want to share something I read in the December 20 issue of Forbes magazine. In an interview with Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, the New York Observer publisher told the magazine that politicians recognize that particular television shows attract individuals with specific political opinions:
Kushner’s crew was able to tap into the Republican National Committee’s data machine, and it hired targeting partners like Cambridge Analytica to map voter universes and identify which parts of the Trump platform mattered most: trade, immigration or change. Tools like Deep Root drove the scaled-back TV ad spending by identifying shows popular with specific voter blocks in specific regions--say, NCIS for anti-ObamaCare voters or The Walking Dead for people worried about immigration.
Thus, entertainment and politics aren’t just linked but are inseparable. I imagine the Democrats had a similar system, which explains why Donald Trump advertised during post-apocalyptic horror while Hillary Clinton ran ads during Ancient Aliens, which paradoxically features the rantings of the now rabidly anti-Clinton conspiracy theorist David Wilcock.
In his latest rambling screed, Wilcock built on his allegations that Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party are part of a cult of celebrity vampire lizards who use pizzas to sexually molest children. Just like Len Karsten, whom I discussed yesterday, Wilcock accepts virtually every conspiracy theory, positing a world of evil shape-shifting Reptilians who are supported by the Illuminati, liberal Democrats, and Freemasons, and an opposing force made up of Wilcock himself, fifteen U.S. intelligence agencies, the residents of the Hollow Earth, and ethereal beings that live in outer space. This is part of an odd trend, which we also see in Tom DeLonge’s Sekret Machines project, to fetishize U.S. intelligence agencies as cosmic defenders of true American values. It’s quite a change from the old days when ufologists considered the CIA and the FBI and the NSA to be evil!
Wilcock alleges that under the terms of a truce (!) arranged between the intelligence agencies and the evil Freemason-lizard aliens in the wake of Donald Trump’s election, the lizards agreed to the following terms:
1. A formal, public disclosure of the MIC SSP. They have two large, cloaked orbital platforms, flying black triangle craft, and the ability to travel throughout our solar system.
I need not point out the science fiction influences on these claims, nor the very close similarity Wilcock’s fantasies have to H. P. Lovecraft’s novella At the Mountains of Madness, where similar ancient ruins dating back tens of millions to hundreds of millions of years are discovered and explored in Antarctica. The idea that these ruins were those of Atlantis seems to be a touch of 1990s-era alternative archaeology (Rand Flem-Ath and Graham Hancock). The transparent aluminum seems to be from Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, though I could only guess how Wilcock arrived at a date of 1.8 billion years. Wilcock, or perhaps Corey Goode, since it is never clear which author is writing which parts of the blog post, went on to say that the X-Files is actually a revelation of the lizard-people’s secret disclosure plans.
According to Goode, in a section that is more clearly his, somehow this involves more than fifty alien groups, of whom some are actually human time travelers from the future who have evolved into Grey-like dwarves with bulbous eyes. But this isn’t all! Aliens with elongated skulls and pot bellies, looking like the Pharaoh Akhenaten, colonized Antarctica 65,000 years ago: “What we now see as Antarctica was the seemingly mythical ‘lost island’ of Atlantis. The earth shifted on its rotational axis, perhaps due to a nuclear war, and the water that inundated the continent quickly flash-froze into a gigantic ice shelf.” Oh, and of course these aliens are also the Pre-Adamites of Judeo-Christian and Islamic folklore.
Did you ever wonder what happened to the Maya? No? Oh, that’s because you know that the Maya still live in Mexico and Central America. But if you are Goode and Wilcock, you are thinking in terms of the old claim that the Maya simply disappeared one day. Goode says he met them in outer space:
The Mayan Break-Away group started out in Mesoamerica, and thanks to a successful ET contact, they were able to migrate off-planet. They have since become advanced enough to develop a unique technology that appears to be based on the use of stone and consciousness. They act as a healing group that have provided treatment to [Lt. Col.] Gonzales and many other survivors of SSP [Secret Space Program] enslavement and torture. There were now six of the Mayans in the room. Three of them were females. I had only seen a female on one occasion before with any degree of closeness.
I am sorely tempted to make a joke here based on the last sentence, but instead I will point out that Goode has no problem making up false facts to fit his fantasies. He thinks that Pre-Adamite aliens with elongated skulls currently run the Catholic Church: “The elongated ‘miter’ hats everyone wears in the Vatican are one of the ways they have been able to conceal themselves while still operating amongst us.” Nobody wears miters day in and out. They are ceremonial, and are worn only by bishops and some abbots. Their use in the Catholic Church is defined by canon law, not that Goode knows or cares.
According to Goode, he receives his information by being teleported to alien worlds after he falls asleep on his living room couch. Sometimes this involves buxom young women appearing to him after dozing off on his couch. Following his dreams, “I was taken to my living room where I again laid on the couch and fell asleep.” I think we can all see what’s going on here.
Goode concludes that the FBI openly worked to help Donald Trump become president because they wanted a president who would help them prosecute pedophile space aliens who are masquerading as liberal Democrats and running secret sex slavery rings. “The FBI believed that if Trump won the election, they would finally have their opportunity to bring this evidence to an Attorney General who would actually prosecute.” Goode falsely alleges that pedophile Freemason Illuminati Democrats rigged the election in swing states to install Hillary Clinton as president but failed to anticipate the landslide support of Trump, which the rest of us would recognize if only we discounted all the rigged votes that made the contest seem closer than it was. (Yes, Goode accepts the false claim Trump made about millions of illegal votes being cast.)
Wilcock and Goode then agree that Trump is the agent of Justice who has smashed the power of the evil Democratic alien sex predators and will inaugurate a Golden Age of “disclosure” now that Trump has destroyed all evil.
In a conversation that the two had, Goode speculates that Ancient Aliens will report the new discoveries, while Wilcock – who is on the show and listed as a producer – asks Goode if Ancient Aliens will really do this. Does he not remember his own job?
And lest you think that these two warriors for truth are selflessly trying to save the world, put your mind at ease. They conclude their “revelations” with a sales pitch:
Your support of our grassroots efforts is vital to our success. You can find out much more about this insider world by subscribing to Gaia and watching our shows.
And there you have it. The “good” aliens and the intelligence communities—people known to send “suitcases stuffed with cash” to bribe anyone and everyone—couldn’t spare a dime to keep Goode in the style to which he became accustomed, despite allegedly using him as their voice in the epic battle of Trump v. Evil.
