Seasons Greetings and Best Wishes

2014 has been a very busy year for me. I’ve had a reasonably significant career change, which has taken up quite a bit of my time. My musical projects schedule has also been as busy as ever. I suppose I should consider myself fortunate to be gainfully employed, however these factors have had a considerably impact on the time I usually spend researching and writing about the various subjects I have covered here on my blog in the past. That said it has still been a very productive year in terms of research. In 2014, I published my first book – “Science Fiction and the Hidden Global Agenda” – which continues to be very well received. If you had told me a few years ago that I would write a 400+ page book, I would have laughed in disbelief! I also managed to do several presentations which covered a number of “truth” related subjects. Looking back, I am amazed and humbled by the amount of support and encouragement I have received from many people. To all those people, you have my deepest appreciation. Your generosity of spirit, enlightenment and friendship continues to inspire me. In turn, I will endeavour to keep on digging in those dark corners of truth and share all that I discover with my readers.

In the meantime, I’d like to convey all the very best wishes of the season and health, light and love for the coming year. Keep those hearts and minds open my friends!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens – Official Teaser Trailer

In the last few days, the first official teaser trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens has been released to the general public. I remember a far more na├»ve time in my life when the mere mention of this would have created goose bumps on my skin: yes, I was raised and indoctrinated by “The Force”! Given my valid concerns about the output of Hollywood (particularly that of Disney), I was immediately raising an eyebrow when it was announced that Disney had acquired Lucasfilm, the Star Wars franchise, would be making a new “Wars” film shortly and that it would be helmed by Disney stalwart J.J. Abrams. I have no doubt in my mind that these new films will not feel like previous Star Wars efforts. There will be an “undercurrent” of something untoward, perhaps somewhat indefinable but it will be there never the less. I base this conclusion on what I have come to understand about the way Disney produces its material. I have written a fair amount on this subject in the past and included some links below for further reading.
Here is the link to the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer. Make of it what you will. Obviously there is little yet to glean visually from this teaser, but the voiceover itself says much.
"There has been an awakening. Have you felt it...? The dark side... and the light."

Bill Kaysing suggested Stanley Kubrick/Apollo Hoax connection in 1976

In recent articles, I have discussed the need to identify a timeframe when the connection between legendary filmmaker Stanley Kubrick and the Apollo Moon hoax was first articulated within the public consciousness. Although I have pretty much failed to find words to the effect of “Kubrick faked it” or “Kubrick was partly involved” before the early/mid 1990s, I believe these words were articulated at a much earlier date. My quest to evidentially quantify the latter is on-going, but it seems that I have inched a step closer. For a number of years, I have been aware of the work of researcher Bill Kaysing. Kaysing stood fast by his conclusion that NASA’s Apollo Lunar Mission programme was in some way staged and that there is ample evidence to support the notion.

Recently, I was reminded that Kaysing alluded to a connection with Kubrick in his book “We Never Went to the Moon: America's Thirty Billion Dollar Swindle!” The book was first published in 1976 with several reprints published from the late 80s / early 90s onward. These reprints include modified sections of text and slight revisions to Kaysing’s theories on how the fakery could have been staged. Most researchers who refer to the book quote from a number of pdf versions that have circulated the internet for several years. Some of these have publishing dates, whilst others don’t. The problem with pdfs is that text and images can be altered / edited before creation of the file, therefore making it very difficult to establish what exactly appeared in which edition of the book. In order to verify what he said (and when) about Kubrick, I needed to go back to the 1976 paperback version. After a bit of a search and wait, I have in my possession a paperback 1976 first edition. Good news first, I can confirm that he did indeed refer to Kubrick in the context of the Apollo hoax in 1976 – a real boon for my on-going research. Not so good news, Kaysing never drew an outright connection – he only postulated that Kubrick could have been involved. Here is the text referring to Kubrick.

At the conclusion of chapter 3, Kaysing includes a short section (pg. 28) entitled "2001": THE ANSWER TO THE VISUAL ASPECT OF SIMULATION. He says: "The film, '2001, A Space Odyssey', is considered to be the ne plus ultra of all science fiction movies concerned with space. It was begun in the summer of 1965 at about the time when those who really knew what was happening to the Apollo project began to make their final decisions. Filming of '2001' continued for two and a half years, and its budget was increased from six million dollars to almost 10 million! A total of 205 special effects shots, encompassing a period of one and a half years, was an ingenious cover utilized by ASP (NB: The Apollo Space Program). It is possible that even more than $4.5 million was given to the Kubrick coalition to finance the most perfect space sequences ever shown. While ‘2001’ was being filmed, Kubrick and his crew consulted with nearly 70 industrial and aerospace corporations, universities, observatories, weather bureaus, laboratories and other institutions to ensure that the film would be technically accurate. Had this been done for ASP without the cover of '2001', much suspicion would have been directed towards those making the inquiries. Another aspect of the release of '2001' in 1968 is this: The film prepared the American people for filmed versions of space exploration. It would be a simple transition from a huge manned orbiting lab gyrating to strains of the 'Blue Danube' (as in '2001'), to the relatively prosaic view of two men taking a stroll on the 'moon'."

On page 62 ("CLANDESTINE EQUIPMENT DESIGN, MANUFACTURE INSTALLATION AND OPERATION: SIMULATION HARDWARE AND SECRET BASE"), Kaysing discusses the possibility that "a complete set of the moon was built in an underground cavern at the ASP base. Every location that would be used for landings was created in exact detail."
He adds, "All scenes of the Lunar Excursion Module (LEM) were filmed on this set with the astronauts as ‘stars’. There were no more problems than would appear during the filming of ‘Star Trek’, ‘2001, A Space Odyssey’, or ‘Silent Running’. After all, Hollywood grips and gaffers, cameramen and directors had acquired long experience in science fiction film production. A plus for the project was the advantage of filming silent. All voices and equipment sounds were dubbed in by an elaborate sound creation and dubbing studio immediately adjacent to the moon set." It is worth noting that Kubrick was one of just a scant handful of science fiction directors (throughout the entire history of cinematic film) to portray exterior space as a silent vacuum. In '2001', the silence was dramatically offset by the overlay of a musical soundtrack.

Kaysing also inadvertently noted another connection to Kubrick via his long-time collaborator - the production designer Ken Adams. Adams was principally responsible for realising the "Moon Hoax" set scene in the James Bond film "Diamonds Are Forever". Kaysing says, "In the film 'Diamonds Are Forever', with Sean Connery playing the role of Agent 007 - James Bond, there is a curious and unexplained scene. He enters a secret research facility in the Nevada desert by ruse. Suddenly he finds himself in a large room in which there is an authentic moon landscape. Lumbering about in their clumsy space suits are two would-be astronauts. Nothing happens, the scene is not explained, and the viewer is left to ponder its significance. Could it be...? Yes, it could!"

So there you have it folks, a scrap of proof (but proof never the less) that the Kubrick/Apollo connection was at least being considered in the mid-70s – just half a dozen years after it was claimed that man had first set foot on the Moon. With a little more research, I may be able to connect Kubrick back to 1969 and the proverbial "point of departure"! My search continues…

Updates, 6th Annual British Exopolitics Expo & More Stanley Kubrick Apollo Fakery

Before I start, I just want to apologise for my blogging absence of late. It has been a very busy month or so. Several months back I was offered a job coordinating therapeutic activities for the elderly. It was an opportunity that I jumped at and has been a very rewarding “work life” experience thus far. Unfortunately, it has meant that I have succumbed to the rigours of regimented 9 to 5, Monday to Friday routine – something that I have avoided in my non-conformist work ethic for over a decade! What a shock to the system! It has also meant that my musical work has had to be slotted into evenings and weekends – somewhat problematic given that I have been snowed under by a number of projects of late. The good news is that I have had the opportunity to barter some time in studios and with a number of very talented muso types. The result is that I am producing some new material of my own creation. I will hopefully be able to post some links to the first of these new songs – entitled “Before the Warning” – in a week or two. More will follow in due course.

The 6th Annual British Exopolitics Expo
On September 27th 2014, I was invited to speak at the 6th Annual British Exopolitics Expo at Leeds Metropolitan University's The Rose Bowl. Exopolitics Great Britain was created by Anthony Beckett in 2009 and since then their mission statement has been to “increase public awareness of issues relating to the evidence in support of the existence of extraterrestrial life ranging from UFO disclosure advocacy through to promoting and educating on exopolitical discourse.” Additionally, Exopolitics GB have kept abreast of the ongoing state of the ET/UFO “disclosure” process in all its forms. (See:

I generally tend to avoid “conference” speaking opportunities like the plague – given that they often play host to speakers whose “views” clash with the nature of my own evidence gathering and research. They also regularly provide a platform for disinformation/misinformation, limited hangouts and counterproductive “truth” agendas. In the case of the Exopolitics Expo, my decision to agree to take part was largely based on the presence of Andrew Johnson ( and Grant Cameron (, whose work I respect and have followed for a number of years. Additionally (although I have only been aware of their work for a relatively shorter period of time) I was also encouraged by the involvement of Pierre Sabak ( and Rosemary Ellen Guiley (specifically, the research in her book “The Djinn Connection” -

Due to work commitments, I was unable to attend the full three days, yet the presence of most of the weekend’s speakers throughout Saturday gave me a chance to gauge the sentiments and perspectives of those involved. It was also a rather unique undertaking for me – given that I was being accompanied by three close friends whose perspectives represented the full range of mass perceptions of this particular subject. One friend is overall a skeptic of anything he lazily labels as “conspiracy theories” and “the paranormal” – although he is slightly open minded to the idea of “life out there”. The next is healthily and pragmatically open-minded - requiring a degree of plausible and verifiable evidence on the table before she will consider. The latter is remarkably open-minded to many subjects. As somebody who is a little overly guarded and cautious, it was only when I took stock of the ambience and content of the Expo that I realised how invaluable this trio of trusted “eyes and ears” had been.

My talk (entitled “The Source of the Nine - Is it 'Life as we know it?'”) was a variation on the presentation I gave at Birmingham TruthJuice in August 2014 ( regarding the connections between Star Trek/Gene Roddenberry and the “Lab 9” phenomenon – with emphasis on key Lab 9 player Dr. Andrija Puharich and his connections to SRI, NASA, CIA, etc. Surprisingly, I found myself very nervous during the first 5 – 10 minutes of my talk and fell over my words a little! Thankfully, I quickly settled into my stride. Overall, my presentation was very well received and prompted a number of people to ask follow-up questions throughout the afternoon. One or two people took exception to my remarks about some slightly disturbing connections with former Apollo astronaut Edgar Mitchell and gave me a severe inquisitorial grilling afterwards, but I expected such a reaction from certain quarters. Thankfully, my research on this matter is well sourced. As they say, you can’t please everybody…and I’m not going to start anytime soon! I also had the chance to chat with Grant Cameron, Pierre Sabak, Rosemary Ellen Guiley and Robbie Graham – the latter presented a controversial and thought provoking thesis on the nature of the UFO/ET disclosure movement during his presentation at the Expo. Although I didn’t entirely agree with all of his conclusions, his presentation was a valid assessment of the current state of play in ufological research. There are a number of recent articles on his website ( that address this subject further.

Due to some problems with travel arrangements, I had to depart Leeds before the end of the day’s conference and missed much of Grant Cameron’s presentation. A great shame – although I am reliably informed that it was up to his usual and highly researched standard.
The conference was very well organised with everybody involved being extremely helpful and friendly. Organiser Anthony Beckett was a gracious host and went out of his way to accommodate me. He even allowed me the use of his laptop when mine steadfastly refused to co-operate with the lecture theatre’s projector system! I am truly grateful to him and all those at Exopolitics Great Britain for providing me with the opportunity to present information that some researchers (and conference organisers!) would consider inconvenient and prefer to ignore. All the presentations at the Expo were filmed, so hopefully I will be able to provide a link these videos at some point in the future.

Yet More on Kubrick…
Whilst I’m on the subject of my ongoing research, I have (yet again!) discovered a few more curios relating to the legendary filmmaker Stanley Kubrick. Kubrick is becoming something of an ongoing research project for me – particularly with regard to his alleged involvement with NASA’s “Apollo” program. Following the publication of my aforementioned book, I genuinely believed I was pretty much done with the Kubrick matter. How wrong I was! As my faithful readers will know, I have currently become stalled with the opinion that (for whatever reason) the Kubrick/NASA connection was first fully and openly articulated/verbalised in the public consciousness at some point during the early/mid-1990s. This may have been an elaborate and contrived ploy to “create” a specific point in time when the notion was seemingly first “realised”, therefore falsely validating the notion that there is and never was a LEGITIMATE Kubrick/Apollo connection - at least not with regard to Apollo Mission fakery – before the 1990s. However, just because something had no obvious public exposure before a specific date, does not mean the notion ever existed. Unfortunately, what we have before the mid-90s is scant. There are things such as the NASA/”2001: A Space Odyssey” interplay and the metaphorical symbolism on display in Kubrick’s “The Shining”, but nothing specific or concrete. This has placed me on a quest of sorts to find a specific reference to the connection before the 1990s - the best evidence would be a TV documentary or book (preferably a paperback with an edition date so as to preclude the possibly that it is a more contemporary reprint – or potentially tampered with in the case of a pdf file, for example) - to prove the pre-existing connection. Please feel free to contact me if you know of any sources before this period that can be verified by a date that cannot be falsified. I would very much appreciate any leads! I approve comments (to filter trolls and spam) before publishing on my blogs - so if you want to leave your contact email in a comment, I will write it down and then delete the comment rather than publish. Your details will be kept in strictest confidence and never passed on to another party. Anyway, back to the subject at hand.

The reality is that I will probably have to read thousands of books for many years and may never find that elusive handful of words that would once and for all blow the whole thing open (metaphorically speaking!) My resignation was given something of a jolt recently when I came across a 2009 RT News interview with former Soviet Cosmonaut Alexei Leonov. Mainstream history books cite Leonov as the first person to ever walk in outer space (1965.) In the RT interview, Leonov discusses his “recollection” of his time in the Soviet Space Program and the “official” accounts of NASA’s Apollo missions. He also goes out of his way to dismiss any suggestion that the Apollo Lunar missions were in any way staged or faked.

The following is taken from a transcript of the interview ( The article was posted on September 15, 2010 and further edited on April 03, 2011. The piece begins: “Russia's prominent cosmonaut, first man to walk in space, Aleksey Leonov strongly rejects claims that Americans made up their moon mission and shares with RT his memories of Neil Armstrong walking on the lunar surface.”
In the interview, the RT news correspondent asks Leonov, “The US is often accused of not actually going to the moon and faking the images from there. What’s your take on that?” Leonov replies, That is ignorance, total ignorance on the part of those who say so. These people don't know anything about technology. Or they just seek popularity.” He further asserts, “… When the Americans announced their mission, we all gathered at this military base. We sat there, holding our fingers crossed. We wished all the luck to the guys. We personally knew them, and they knew us. Radars were monitoring the whole process. When the ship landed, their external cameras began to show the surroundings. We saw it all. Then the hatch opened, the next camera turned on (they really had thought it all through). Armstrong goes down the steps. The last step was about 50 cm above the Moon's surface. He was moving his foot carefully. We all froze, waiting to see what was going to happen next. He jumped off the step, then bounced and began to walk. He had an antenna that transmitted everything to the Earth; we saw everything that they did.”

It is interesting that Leonov slams any notion that the Apollo missions were in any way faked. It may be that he simply buys (as many people still do) the “official” history of man’s “first steps” on the Moon. It could also be that he knows more and isn’t saying. It seems reasonable to suggest that somebody in Leonov’s former position would have some insight into what may have really occurred in relation to the Apollo Lunar missions. However, this isn’t all he says.

"The rumour started when Stanley Kubrick’s wife commented on her husband's work. She said that it was very difficult to make the film about Americans landing on the moon. Well, it is understandable. There are two ships left on Earth. One is at the Smithsonian museum. It is not allowed to even take pictures there, because the displays there are extremely valuable. And the second ship, the exact copy, is in Hollywood. So he did some of the shots there, things like landing, opening of the hatch… because otherwise viewers would not get the whole picture. So that's how the rumour about the landing on the moon footage being fake started. Two people even went to prison for bearing false witness?"

RT uploaded clip of the interview (featuring this section) can be found here: and the full 28 minute interview can be found here: The interview verifies Leonov’s statements in the transcript – at least those words spoken by the translator, as Leonov is naturally speaking Russian. In order to confirm his remarks, I wanted to see if the translation matched what he says in Russian. Fortunately, I have a colleague who is fluent in Russian. I asked him to watch the interview for me and he says that the translation is indeed accurate.

At the heart of this matter are the claims he makes about Kubrick. Leonov says that Kubrick utilised an exact copy of the LEM (located in “Hollywood”) and “did some of the shots there, things like landing, opening of the hatch… because otherwise viewers would not get the whole picture.” Given the context of this statement - such as “landing”, “opening the hatch” and that this was done to give “viewers” the “whole picture” – one can easily assume that Kubrick was doing this work for NASA or some associated agency. It also follows that this was during the same period as the Apollo mission. Therefore, one could perhaps conclude (at least based on Leonov’s statement) that Kubrick worked on the Apollo program! If true, this is a staggering revelation – one that seems to have been totally absent from not only every official account of Kubrick’s career but also the investigation into Kubrick’s involvement in the NASA/Apollo cover-up.

Before I began getting too excited at the possibility of discovering a lead that had previously eluded me, I sat back and considered the context of his claim. Leonov cites Kubrick’s widow, Christianne, as the source of yet another claim – that Kubrick made a “film about Americans landing on the moon.” I am unsure as to what film he is referring. Is it possible that he means “2001; A Space Odyssey”? The film is not actually about Americans landing on the Moon – given that any Moon related portions of the narrative occupy a very small portion of the running time. In the story, America has been on the Moon for quite a while and “landed” many time previously. However, strictly speaking, it does technically show the landing of an American space craft (with American passengers) on the Moon.

It is possible that Leonov is simply referring to Christiane’s interviews in the French “mockumentary” film ‘Dark Side of the Moon’. However, I would be surprised if this was the case. If Leonov really does hold fast to the idea that the Apollo missions were “as seen by the world”, then I’m sure he would give little credence to a film that’s central notion is that Kubrick was employed to fake footage for use in the global perception of a “manned Moon landing” by NASA. The film itself is an oddity. It is widely accepted as being a spoof and this is generally backed up by the use of stock footage of key historically figures talking about (non-Apollo) subjects that have been edited to fit the central conceit of the film. Yet, it has never been adequately explained why Christiane was involved in the film. In light of Leonov’s comments, it is possible that we finally have a possible explanation. If Kubrick was employed by NASA to work on a P.R. film about the Apollo mission, is this what Christiane was talking about in ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ and used slightly out of context?

On the other hand, we should also consider everything Leonov has said as disinformation and half-truths that muddle and dissemble the subject at hand. His remarks would benefit the cause of disinformation on multiple levels. If we can’t trust the words of astronauts like Buzz Aldrin and Edgar Mitchell (as many researchers, including myself, have discovered), why should we trust somebody like Leonov? In light of my research, I would like to entertain what he has said regarding Kubrick as it answers many questions I still have about the man and this subject. Yet, as a largely pragmatic person, I have to accept the possibility that Leonov is just another tool of the system, spouting the rhetoric and leading us down yet another dead end path. If nothing else, this information adds another depth to the rabbit hole that is Stanley Kubrick and I feel compelled to keep digging!

As an interesting aside, the spacecraft dispatched to Jupiter in “2010: The Year We Make Contact” (the book was written by NASA stalwart and Kubrick Collaborator Arthur C. Clarke and the film a direct sequel to Clarke and Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey”) is name “The Cosmonaut Alexei Leonov” ( The director of “2010” was Peter Hyams who also helmed “Capricorn One” – a film that depicted a faked manned mission to Mars and the subsequent cover-up. Nothing like a good synchronicity to keep us wondering, eh!?

Until next time,
The Truth Seeker’s Guide.

The Strange Case of Brenda Leyland

Bit of a controversial one this - but attention must be drawn to some of the levels of "high strangeness" surrounding the account. I have recently gathered a variety of "mainstream" media and newspaper reports describing the recent apparent death of one Brenda Leyland. There are number of issues that I have decided not to address on this website (at least not until I can verify certain aspects) that relate to this story. However, I will make a few cursory observations further on. Firstly, I would suggest perusing some of the reports below - I have highlighted a few sections from these pieces also - and see what you make of this story. Also note (objectively, of course!) if there are factors that can be read "between the lines", as it were!

Brenda Leyland dead: Madeleine McCann parents' 'troll' found dead after Sky News report (Sunday 05 October 2014) -
A woman alleged to have been an internet troll who abused the parents of Madeleine McCann has been found dead in a Leicestershire hotel. Brenda Leyland was believed to have posted abusive messages aimed at Gerry and Kate McCann Leicestershire Police were called to a hotel in Smith Way, Grove Park, in Enderby, Leicester, on Saturday. A police spokeswoman said the death was not being treated as suspicious. Last week Mrs Leyland was tracked down at her home in Burton Overy, Leicestershire, by Sky News, which reported that she was one of dozens of trolls targeting the McCanns on the internet. On Wednesday the broadcaster’s crime correspondent Martin Brunt confronted the 63-year-old and quizzed her about her online activities, saying Mrs Leyland had posted dozens of messages attacking the family using the Twitter handle @sweepyface. Mr Brunt asked Mrs Leyland why she was using her Twitter account to attack the McCanns, who live in Rothley, Leicestershire. “I’m entitled to do that,” Mrs Leyland replied. When Mr Brunt told her that she had been reported to police, she replied: “That’s fair enough.” Footage of the encounter aired on Thursday and the next day it was reported that Mrs Leyland had left the village. A neighbour of Mrs Leyland, who did not want to be named, told the Leicester Mercury newspaper: “Somebody took a photo of her on Thursday afternoon and then she was gone. I haven’t seen her since.” Another resident said: “While I wouldn’t condone what Brenda is accused of doing, I am worried for her safety now she has fled.” A Leicestershire Police spokeswoman said on Sunday: “Police were called at 1.42pm on Saturday to reports of a body of a woman in a hotel room in Smith Way, Grove Park. Officers have attended the scene and a file is being prepared for the coroner. Identification of the deceased is a matter for the coroner. The death is not being treated as suspicious.” An 80-page dossier containing hundreds of tweets, Facebook posts and messages posted on online forums was handed to the Metropolitan Police by members of the public sickened by the abuse in recent months. Many posts suggested that the McCanns should be tortured and killed. Madeleine’s younger siblings, nine-year-old twins Sean and Amelie, have also been subjected to threats.

Further in the article, Gerry McCann is quoted as saying,
"I'm glad to see the law around this area is being reviewed. But I do think we need to make examples of people who are causing damage."

Katie Hopkins blames ‘negligence’ of Madeleine McCann’s parents for ‘troll’ Brenda Leyland’s death (06/10/2014) -

There is an interesting comment posted beneath the article by one "JosephOConnor":

"Actually I think Katie makes some valid points. Is a troll someone that goes against the grain of the consensus or the media line? I pity the McCann family personally and in my opinion they are not to blame for Madeleine's disappearance, I am sure they must feel awful guilt anyhow. But there is room for another opinion. Why have we become so thin skinned? Surely we should be teaching people to toughen up. I think it is good thing to have free speech and robust opinions on all sides, the benefits of a truly open society outweigh both the dangers and the threats. My problem is with his namby pamby touchy feeling false nonsense we hear from people in the media. I rather liked the so call Sky News troll, I thought she looked charming and I think she should have defended her rights up front and on the spot. But she chose otherwise. Of course I am sorry for her but she should have been able to deal with it. The Sky News report was certainly biased, assuming that all those who don't agree with the PC line are trolls. The report was filled with vitriol against the poor woman even suggesting the she would have questions to answer with Scotland Yard. I am sure she broke no law. Even by their own admission it ignored the response from the vast majority of Sky News viewers who were outraged by the report. Why? What the hell is going on with the media?"

And this:

Missing Madeleine: alleged online troll found dead (by JILL LAWLESS, Associated Press, Monday, October 6, 2014) -
On Friday, Gerry McCann said the family had been subjected to threats of violence and kidnapping. "I think we probably need more people charged," he told the BBC. "I'm glad to see the law around this area is being reviewed. But I do think we need to make examples of people who are causing damage." Posts on the "sweepyface" account called the McCanns' "evil" and "criminals," but didn't appear to threaten the couple. The tweets expressed doubt about the McCanns' explanation of their daughter's disappearance and criticized their conduct in the years since.

This led me to attempt to document what Brenda Leyland had (allegedly) been saying about the McCann case. The following gives a vague and somewhat limited account:


The Madeleine McCann case periodically appears in the mainstream media, but more recently the story has gone a little quiet. I did initially wonder if the attention drawn by Richard D. Hall's excellent documentary film "Buried by Mainstream Media: The True Story of Madeleine McCann" had rocked a few metaphorical boats and inadvertently been the cause of this story regarding Brenda Leyland. I’m not implying for one second that RDH's film is somehow responsible for triggering a set of circumstances that culminated in the death of Leyland. Quite separately, the Brenda Leyland case has an almost "psyop" whiff about it.

I have no way of accurately verifying if this woman was indeed an "internet troll" or made threats against certain parties. I don't condone such behaviour in any form, but if she did behave in this manner, I have to wonder if it truly justified the proverbial "witch hunt" that descended on this woman. Further, why was Sky News at the centre of these proceedings? Sky is a key part of Rupert Murdoch's global media holding company News Corporation. What (or who) set Sky onto this woman? Why was the most powerful media organisation on the planet interested in this woman? It just doesn't add up. It is obvious that many people have an opinion about the Madeleine McCann case and I know that there are a sizeable number of people who have said and written some incredibly extreme and, perhaps, irresponsible things on the internet, but why have the powers that be taken notice of these comments now? Why all of a sudden this specific woman?

Interestingly, very few news media outlets have used a word that I believe is the cornerstone of responsible journalism or investigative research - "alleged". Brenda Leyland, in the vast majority of articles covering her story, was portrayed without question as a "troll", "abusive", "threatening", “vile" and so on. As far as these outlets were concerned, the terms were cut and dried "facts".

There is another strange factor to this case. Why, in all honesty, would anybody be making death threats against the McCanns? Regardless of what is becoming increasingly evidential about the Madeleine McCann case, I doubt there are many folk out there running around with a death wish! As if to answer these curiosities and the increasing questions being asked by certain "awake" members of the public (in the latter regard see: "Regulator receives 60 complaints about reporter confronting woman over abusive tweets about McCann family" -, we have subsequently been presented with a number of stories which seem to function as a "reinforcement" strategy. See: "Madeleine McCann troll tweeted 4,220 times about missing schoolgirl and her family in one year" -

A number of individuals have suggested that Brenda Leyland was a "patsy" of sorts, used to silence any and all discussion of the Madeleine McCann case. One or two others have even suggested that she may even have been a "plant" or "agent provocateur" for reasons similar to the aforementioned. It has even been suggested that (regardless of "what" or "who" she was) her death was orchestrated by the likes of MI5. Of course, such claims (although we know that they happen with alarming regularity) are purely speculative.

There is a final part to this story that may offer an explanation to all the curiosities and high strangeness of the case. The piece by Sky News that dragged Brenda Leyland into the spotlight centred on the nature of Twitter and Facebook abuse and threats of violence. This has inevitably dovetailed into discussions about the nature of free speech and what kinds of opinions are deemed "acceptable" in everyday life. But who polices such opinions? Ironically, this actually brings us (again!) back to Richard D Hall's most recently posted episodes of Richplanet TV. The links are in my previous article -

In fact, check out what he says about the changing of laws and threats to freedom of speech in episode 189 - "World Domination, Modern Slavery & More"

Is this whole case with Brenda Leyland an elaborate ploy - part of a new push for internet censorship and laws that curb freedom of speech that in turn silences anybody who questions corruption, clandestine cover-ups and elite control of the masses? There are number of recent stories that indicate this is the case.

David Cameron had called for a criminalization of “non-violent extremism” during a speech at the UN -

Theresa May plans new powers to ban extremists from TV appearances -

My regular readers know that I can't abide fear mongering. However, when you come across stories like this they serve to remind us that we DO live in uncertain times and that – thanks to the machinations of the global elite – trouble is never far away. The Brenda Leyland story reeks of something untoward. Thankfully, you don't need to be a farmer to smell bullshit when it’s in the air!

Until next time!
