David Wilcock Spins Anti-Government Conspiracy, Accuses Rothschild Banking Family of Threatening Him with Assassination
As 2017 comes to an end, Ancient Aliens star David Wilcock dumped one last steaming load to cap off a crappy year. On his Divine Cosmos blog, Wilcock alleged that evil aliens, liberal Democrats, and career civil servants in the U.S. government are finally receiving their comeuppance thanks to a coalition of good space aliens, conservative Republicans, and Donald Trump, though he did not name the president specifically. Wilcock alleges that the Trump Justice Department has placed more than 4,000 so-called Deep State actors under house arrest in anticipation of a massive purge of space alien collaborators. The 4,289 sealed indictments represent the total number of sealed indictments filed in America’s 94 federal courts in November. The number became fodder for right-wingers after Robert Mueller used sealed indictments in his Trump-Russia probe, and Wilcock has parroted the talking point.
Wilcock misunderstood the December revelation that the Pentagon had a UFO office funded through an appropriation shepherded through Congress by former Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) as an official announcement that space aliens are real and visiting the Earth. Worse, he shows a shocking lack of understanding of the history of ufology: “For really the first time in recorded, modern history, UFOs are being treated with complete seriousness -- by whatever is left of the mainstream media [MSM]” (brackets in original). In the middle twentieth century, the major media produced serious, and even boring, UFO documentaries, often through network news divisions. But the seriousness with which UFOs were treated declined in proportion to the lack of evidence for their reality. Wilcock believes that the mainstream media is controlled by the CIA.
However, Wilcock has a little bit of trouble wrapping his head around the fact that Sen. Reid is a Democrat, since Wilcock has based his worldview on identifying Democrats as child-killing, alien-worshiping super-predators, as he has done since before the 2016 election. Perhaps this is why Wilcock is trying to shift his narrative from Democrat vs. Republican to Deep State vs. elected officials. At any rate, he endorses Reid’s hypocritical call for a congressional inquiry into space aliens—an inquiry Reid could have initiated at any time as Senate majority leader but chose not to when he still had the power to do something about it.
In fact, without mentioning Trump by name, Wilcock is engaging in a revision of his own longstanding claims by altering them to more closely resemble a funhouse mirror version of the Trump-Russia investigation. Wilcock tied his star to Trump last year, officially endorsing him, and he is a longtime recipient of Russian largesse—including appearances on Putin-linked Russian TV and utilization of Russian ancient astronaut propaganda. (He has also defended Russia against what he calls “unfair” U.S. attacks on its human rights record and repeated anti-Democrat Russian propaganda.) Here he concocts a fantasy where the Trump investigation is a farce but the real investigation involves taking down Trump’s enemies with the help of benevolent space aliens—sort or cosmic Russian handlers. Therefore, he now feels that “disclosure” of UFOs is not going to happen. “At this point, disclosure seems to be more of a tool to try to distract the public... as we build toward an epic exposure of the darkness within the Deep State.” Just as Russia launched a troll army to support Trump, Wilcock envisions the Deep State controlling a troll army to harass UFO believers. He similarly blasts Trump enemies at the FBI and the CIA as “compromised” by extraterrestrial forces and working for evil, just as Trump accuses the organizations of being “tainted.”
Wilcock also provides a credulous description of the testimony of Emery Smith, a so-called whistleblower who got a taste of fame by appearing in the 2013 documentary Sirius and now has his own Gaia-TV set of Cosmic Disclosure episodes in the ninth (!) season of Wilcock’s online show, wherein he alleges that the Deep State burgled his house, staged a car accident that totaled his car, and briefly kidnapped his dog. He claims that he used to dissect space aliens for the government but fell on hard times and spent several months living in Wilcock’s house. Not only did the government let him live to tell the tale, but the worst they could do to him is to smash up his car. Truly the government is all-powerful. Frankly, a more parsimonious explanation for Smith’s desire to make money on the UFO circuit suggests itself to me. Indeed, Smith has a PayPal donation page asking for cash to help him pay for food in exchange for UFO disclosure.
Oh, and just for kicks, Wilcock engages in some offhand anti-Semitism by accusing the Rothschild banking family of threatening to assassinate him and of cutting his brakes to send a “warning.” “My warning apparently came straight from the Rothschilds through an insider,” Wilcock wrote. (He also claims international financiers—a.k.a. Jews—and Satanists conspired to create the Federal Reserve.) And Wilcock knows all about money-grubbing cultural vampires. As he said, “The best way to dive into this story is to become a Gaia subscriber, which gets you full access to everything…” And, incidentally, it also pays Wilcock’s salary. What a happy coincidence!
Wilcock believes that space aliens and/or beings from another dimension revealed the future to him in a dream, and showed him that UFO disclosure will prove that good space aliens are our friends and the bad space aliens are really “Deep State” actors—i.e. liberals, Democrats, and Jews—who have conspired to present themselves as evil space aliens to consolidate power around an internationalist corporatist agenda, one that only extreme rightwing politics can halt. He also redoubled his belief in Pizzagate, the hoax claim that Democrats operated a child prostitution ring under a Washington, D.C. pizza parlor: “the Pizzagate revelations that emerged from the October 2016 Wikileaks data dump are not at all fake news,” he incorrectly stated.
I hope the History channel is proud of themselves for serving as a promotional platform for this anti-Semitic, paranoid bullshit.
