It’s no secret that when a person trains in a certain field they become very knowledgeable about how things operate in that field, don’t they? Today we’re led to believe that unless you pursue a degree in a particular field it is okay to be ignorant of knowledge in that field. It’s like we’ve outsourced the process of critical thinking to those who have degrees in specific fields. Thus not being trained in that field becomes the excuse many people use today to blindly accept whatever they are told (in this case by mainstream media) about issues pertaining to that field of study. What I’m describing here is someone who doesn’t want to think on their own. Stepping back and taking a bird’s-eye view of the situation, we’re describing someone who not only doesn’t want to think on their own but someone who considers critical thinking a bothersome (mental) exercise. This is actually no different than the person who doesn’t ever want to go to the gym because they are lazy. This willful ignorance is then similar to a mental laziness.
As the controllers continue to conduct one false flag shooting “event” after another to destroy our mental peace and sense of safety, and as they deliberately tamper with the general public’s psyche to prepare them for martial law and permanent enslavement, this mental laziness or willful ignorance becomes a key tool that allows the controllers to get away with what I call medical miracles and fantastic improbabilities playing out before our very eyes as few are even catching them or (for that matter) even questioning them.
Taking a closer look at the mass shooting false flag in Orlando, Florida, however, we’ll observe that in this event (as I’ve already written about) we saw medical impossibilities, miracles and massive protocol and ethics violations on full display in broad daylight with few saying a word. I’ll provide emphasis on the word “zero” to make my point more clearly. From police officers playing the role of emergency medical services and paramedics, to another big shooting scene with zero ambulances clearly seen anywhere saving lives, to the miracle of police being given the power to pronounce people dead, to zero accounts of people who almost died then were saved during surgery, to zero accounts of people who were thought to survive and then crashed later on, to zero cases of stories from the front-line nurses, doctors and paramedics telling us of specific challenges with those who sustained gunshot wounds. No stories, for example, of any victims who perhaps suffered a pneumothorax or pulmonary embolism from the gun wound but was later saved with other life support measures. No tense days of waiting to see who makes it or who dies. Amazingly, everyone died at the same time during that immediate aftermath period when the story and ceremonies were being constructed.
This medical miracle of all patients dying at the same time as I’ve said many times again assumes the fictional reality of “one shot one kill” video game-style. We see this medical miracle pushed on us all the time in staged mass shootings. At Sandy Hook we’re told that a weapons-untrained featherweight boy magically wielded his assault rifle with such skills, precision and speed that his victims were hit and killed immediately without any possibility of being alive, entirely rationalizing why the police (of all people!) were able to look visually, examine and confirm death, completely rendering unnecessary the skills and services of the medical professional emergency service and paramedics workers, etc. This my friends, is a wild medical impossibility of epic proportions. I couldn’t help but to notice that in an attempt to control the 2-dimensional reality the mainstream media set up what appears to be a staged doctor press conference where doctors tell how “lucky” they were that no one died at the hospital, according to Dr Michael Cheatham chief trauma surgeon who happened to be the same doctor selling the “lockdown” rationale the morning of the shooting. As a former medical professional, I personally sense no reality to this conference and political interviews. Doctors generally don’t behave this way getting prettied up and prepped for the camera to calmly tell their “story.” The odds of this “luck” where no one died in surgery from massive “assault rifle” wounds are extremely bizarre in light of the event that took place. So what we have is zero footage of ambulances, emergency rescue workers saving lives, and a bunch of doctors seemingly staging a press conference to explain what they know is an improbable medical coincidence. This is exactly what I predicted earlier this year when I said that false flags would migrate to a “hospital” near you with plenty of “stories” told to us by the doctors and surgeons themselves. Stories you and I cannot confirm for reasons of patient “confidentiality.” Get it? You decide.
I believe the reason these doctors bounced out of character to do these bizarre storytelling interviews selling the all-or-nothing idea that everyone at the club died due to (presumably) head wounds (?), while everyone who came in with body wounds was miraculously saved in surgery, is because they know that studies have shown that a person rarely dies from one single gunshot. The human body is actually resilient and tends towards life. Let’s listen to Dr Andreas Grabinsky talk about gunshot wounds and how “most” people actually “survive” gunshot wounds.
So, as I see it there is reason to highly suspect these Orlando doctors are “telling” us these stories in a manner that conveniently suggests the fictional – “body-shots 100% lucky and alive – dead people 100% dead at club, no need to bring to hospital” with no in-between organic reality. This “all or nothing” claim is highly suspicious! Again, this idea that someone gets shot one time (or even twice) and automatically they are dead is a delusion not based on reality. In fact, nowadays medical researchers will tell you people are surviving gunshot wounds at a better rate than ever. Listen to Dr Thomas Scalea professor of surgery at University of Maryland Medical Center explain this. Writer Rachael Rettner writes (emphasis added to point out rather important facts):
Over the last 20 years, the chances that a person will survive a critical gunshot wound have increased substantially, perhaps by around 30 to 40 percent, said Dr. Thomas Scalea, professor of surgery at the University of Maryland Medical Center’s R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center, who has treated thousands of patients with gunshot wounds over his three-decade career.
The most important factors, in terms of a person’s survival odds, are the location of the injury, the amount of blood lost and how quickly the victim is transported to the hospital, said Scalea …
Being shot in the trunk or torso is more life-threatening than being shot in an extremity, Scalea said.
And within major organs such as the heart or liver, some injuries are more serious than others because they cause more bleeding, Scalea said.
For example, being shot in the left side of the heart generally causes more bleeding than being shot on right side of the heart, because the right side has lower blood pressure, Scalea said. An injury to more than one of the heart’s four chambers causes more bleeding than an injury to only one chamber, and a wound that goes through the septum — which separates the heart’s left and right sides — is worse than an injury that does not go through the septum, Scalea said.
With gunshot wounds that involve the liver, an injury to the organ’s center causes more bleeding than an injury to its periphery, and a wound on the right side is worse than the left, Scalea said.
The main concern with gunshot wounds that involve the intestine or stomach is not bleeding, but infections that result from spillage of the contents of those organs, Scalea said.
Both technical advances and changes in trauma practice have led to an increase in the percentage of people who survive gunshot wounds, Scalea said.
Rather than trying to stabilize victims in the field, health care personnel now try to get injured people into a transport vehicle and to a hospital as soon as possible, Scalea said.
While people can, theoretically, survive a gunshot wound to any part of their body, the chances of survival vary on a case by case basis, he said.
Pass it on: More people now survive critical gunshot wounds than they did several decades ago thanks to changes in trauma practice and technical advances.
There you have it. As you can see, again, the idea of one shot one kill is not grounded in reality, especially given the circumstances of a dark nightclub, aimless gunfire, people running and all the confusion in the middle of poor lighting, etc. Again, to make up for this extremely odd improbability, Dr Cheatham implies but doesn’t say it directly that the people who died were shot in the head. If that is the case they should be prepared to prove that. And in light of the video above, as you can see the odds of all of the “body-shot” victims surviving is extremely small also because a shot to the heart or vital organ can make a big difference between life and death even if that person doesn’t die right then and there. However, we’re told of no such stories. That’s an extremely bizarre coincidence in more ways than most people realize.
Also, from the shooter’s standpoint, it’s one thing to fire an assault rifle; it’s quite another to aim and precisely hit your target with little time to think and the pressure of hitting every single target perfectly. Every human that gets hit by one or more bullets will react differently and has a completely different outcome compared to the person next to them. There are simply too many variables at play to assume they would all somehow die at the same time and the “body shot” people all conveniently run out and are “saved” in surgery accounting for zero deaths in the operating room as told to us by perfectly posed doctors.
All this aside, that’s just one medical miracle and impossibility among many others we are seeing now regularly because the controllers apparently only care about convincing the mentally lazy, willfully ignorant segment of the population as we discussed earlier. Obviously they realize that those of us who are thinking critically are going to figure out that none of their stories make medical sense; it’s the mental zombies they feel they need to convince. Well, apparently their assumptions about this ignorant segment of the population is accurate; they are indeed falling for these medical psyop miracles and fantastic ironies that defy nature, and not just once but with every false flag shooting.
I imagine everyone needed a proper ID according to Florida state alcohol distribution laws to enter the club; then why the confusion over how many dead people and who died? How can the death toll number change … for a smaller (not larger) number? How can you count one “more” dead person who isn’t dead. Oh I know what the sheep will say, ‘it’s a simple mistake’. Don’t look now but there hasn’t been one shooting “event” where the dead body count hasn’t changed. Ask yourself, where is the only other place we see changing body counts in both directions? Video games perhaps. In the organic world one cannot be counted dead then rise from the dead. Again, since every single person at the club had an ID on them, at that time the death count should have been very precise and easy to calculate. I digress.
Then there is my pet-peeve issue, where we are now seeing police being inserted into the role of paramedics and EMS as the image below shows, not to mention being given the absolute medical authority to pronounce people dead or, more properly, not worthy of life-saving intervention as we saw in Sandy Hook. The only theoretical role the police department would play in any real life-saving situation is the obligation to protect the medical professionals as they do their jobs, and to move their cars OUT of the way so that medical professionals can get in and out.
The entire process of saving lives, including CPR, providing of oxygen, saline into your veins to build up your blood pressure, blood transfusions to replace loss of blood, tourniquet applications, chest pumps, the application of chemical and electrocardioversion, making the key decision when NOT to move an injured person and HOW to move them. All of these actions only describe a fraction of the responsibilities of a professionally trained medical emergency worker. They get a license and training for a reason. As I often point out, making a mistake in this critical life-saving process could be a subject of a life-altering lawsuit or malpractice charge against a medical professional. There are rules that guide the ethical behavior and obligations of these medical professional workers in real life-saving situations, and for this reason many medical professionals especially doctors pay a very high premium for medical heath malpractice insurance. That’s because we are talking real lives here.
In the typical false flag pre-planned and staged shooting event we are not only seeing police playing the role of paramedics despite that they have no training whatsoever in medical care, but the police seem to move around confidently as if they know that no one is going to sue them for moving that injured patient and causing the rupture of his aortic or femoral artery and triggering a pulmonary embolism, or whatever it might be. When it comes to medical injuries, every medical professional knows that you simply never know what is happening. This is why the professionals train for so many years.
All of this reality is now taking a back seat to the staged false flag psyop reality we are told. I’m not suggesting I know who died and who didn’t die and I’m not even claiming that no one died. I’m saying that we have to challenge every segment of the reality they are presenting us with in the proper context not in the mainstream media context. In this case I’m offering readers a chance to prove me wrong and to deliver the medical reality of this shooting. In fact, here is sequence of events that will add more reality to the Orlando shooting above and beyond those that are telling us they know someone who knows someone who died. We should all know this list of criteria as we’ve all done this before.
1. For all 49 deceased victims we should account for 49 stories telling exactly how they died and what exact time.
2. For all 49 deceased victims we need 49 medical records with details of the cause of death written and signed by a licensed medical doctor to include the surgeon who attempted the life-saving surgery, the ER doctor and or the licensed Coroner who did the autopsy. All of this is standard medical practice and should not be a problem for all researchers who commit to proving this article wrong. Needless to say I’ll be very curious if indeed all of these victims suffered wounds to the head as is being implied.
3. Building on #2, I’d like to see a list of all the surgeries that DID take place that evening for comparison. I’m actually wondering why no lives were lost whatsoever during these presumably intense surgeries. Yes, they’ve “told” us they were “lucky” to save everyone, but now we need to see the full reality of HOW this happened. This claim again is more remarkable than most people realize given the circumstances.
4. All 49 deceased victims should come with easily and quickly available clear-to-see (no resistance please) death certificates.
5. We should see organic clear and undeniable funeral images of these victims. With every single person walking around with a smart phone which has a built-in video camera this should be a rather easy task.
Sadly, should they get this far and prove the actual deaths of these victims, these deaths would still not account for all the other fakery surrounding this complex false flag event, but it would at least allow us to check off the death claims and label this both a staged fake event and a Gladio-style murder.
So while we’re waiting for the conveniently missing police scanner audio from the hours of the shooting and hostage scenario to appear; while we’re waiting for the countless cell phone videos from people who were there; and while we’re digesting that one guy would hold the door shut from the outside so that no one can get out AND then brag about this crime on CNN; and while we’re waiting for the unredacted 911 calls, the clear overhead helicopter videos of the standoff, a reason for the unethical hospital “lockdown” which would surely cost lives and much more – consider that maybe, just maybe the Orlando shooting event was a multi-dimensional event with mixed realities designed for maximum psychological and political effect. Consider that the obvious crisis actors we’ve been laughing about were perhaps intended to be shown to us. Consider that the conflicting realities are all put there deliberately because they know they can do it this way.
So, instead of wondering if anyone died or not, or how many did actually die if anyone; and instead of wallowing in the FBI obvious connection to the accused now-dead patsy killer which we actually have no proof of either (Mateen’s death), the obvious implied foreknowledge and all the “connections” neatly being presented to us by both mainstream and alternative media, what if we treat this one differently?
I say I’m holding on to my final verdict in terms of how many people died until I see all the actual proof. I’m a living breathing organic person and I demand living real organic proof of these simple easily verifiable things. Realize that if we think this way, from a scientific integrity and scientific method and organic reality point of view this event is not much different from Sandy Hook or perhaps San Bernardino or Boston bombing.
Perhaps this is the intended purpose, to have people divided on many different fronts fighting over whose reality is more real. When you practice something many times eventually you get really good at it, and perhaps they are getting very good at this. No, not the skill of hiding that it’s fake; they are getting better at dividing us while getting away with it. Perhaps THAT’S the real reason for the obviously fake crisis actors.
The lacking medical reality, however, is a special challenge I pose to all. Show me the medical reality of this event and then we’ll go from there. Either way it’s another false flag which we have to cope with. It’s time we fight back by using our intelligence and all our senses to think at a much higher level. Then and only then will we be able to categorize these events properly and not take the bait they are obviously too happy to put there for us to react to and then for them to observe and see how we react to them.
Finally, stop thinking that you are a spectator in their events and consider for a moment and for a change that THEY might be the spectators in the event that YOU, the casual observer, are in the middle of.

This third installment by researcher Walter Bosley follows his rather incisive work which laid the foundation for this, and the previous book, namely his Empire Of The Wheel [Part 1] – An Investigation Of Occult Espionage & Murder by Walter Bosley & Richard B Spence, which was followed by the second part of this series called Empire Of The Wheel Part II – Friends From Sonora by Walter Bosley.
While all three installments delve into those who pay homage to the wheel, which is a symbol of the ever-present Hekate, also known as Catherine of the Wheel, part three of this series, just like the previous ones, has a slight different flavor and with good reason.
This particular book begins as the others do, posing rather poignant questions as the author ruminates ‘out loud’ into what might have taken place in the early 20th century in respect to the ritual murders he analyzes, what possible reasons there could have been behind those nefarious incidents, how they dovetail into each other, as well as where they all lead to in modern times.
That last point should be of at least slight interest: modern times. This issue of those who have carried out these occult incidents isn’t something that only resides in the past. In fact, the latest San Bernardino Shooting has many ‘synchronicities’ with the older events that the author has attempted to solve, and has shed light to.
This particular book merges many notable subjects, such as Telluric fields, the infamous Hekate, ritual killing, Mt. Rubidoux even the mysterious.Mission Inn,
Other more unexpected aspects such as the work of H.P. Lovecraft and what the author possibly knew as well as who, are covered in detail. Knowledge of ancient history are covered where pertinent and the author also connects some other individuals to buttress the argument that there was extremely nefarious dealings taking place in honor of the wheel and all that it entails.
The book even hearkens back to people presented in the past such as Crowley, Harry Houdini, the Sundance Kid, and the Zodiac killer, but adds additional layers within each in its examination of how each of those people were possibly connected.
Out of all three books, this particular one does the best job of dot connecting with some rather keen support for his research. That’s not to say the other books weren’t outstanding as well as grounded, because they were, its just that this book had more information to rely upon than the previous installments. One can only do so much with the information supplied, and with that the author has done quite the superb job considering the circumstances.
All in all, the author’s search into who The Nameless Ones are, follows a rather abstruse road mostly untaken before, but which leaves readers aghast at the possibilities when all is said and done.
From ritual murders, to ancient civilizations, to more modern occult sacrifices of rather notable subjects, the book leaves no stone unturned. And as stated before, those who follow these type of beliefs, are still around today.
Free Speech At An American University? Or Not?
James Tracy responds to questions about his firing, and about press reports of events that have swirled around him.
March 7, 2016
(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, click here.)
By Jon Rappoport
“Why was he fired? I mean, why was he really fired? What did he do? What did he do to bring this down on himself? He must have done something wrong…Wait. Are you saying he was fired because he exercised his natural right to free speech? He spoke freely? That’s it? That’s all? No, I can’t believe that. He must have said something that I would disagree with—in which case, he should have been fired. I feel better. He said something I disagree with. He should be fired. What right does he have to say something that makes me feel uncomfortable? That crosses the line. I have a right not to feel uncomfortable. Isn’t that the most basic of all rights? Isn’t that written in the Constitution?” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)
What happened to Professor James Tracy?
Here is what the NY Times had to say (“Florida Professor Who Cast Doubt on Mass Shootings Is Fired,” 1/6/16):
“MIAMI — A Florida Atlantic University professor who suggested in blog postings and radio interviews that the 2012 massacre of children at Sandy Hook Elementary and other mass shootings were a hoax designed by the Obama administration to boost support for gun control was fired Tuesday.
“James F. Tracy, 50, a tenured associate professor of communications at the Boca Raton university, has repeatedly called into question the authenticity of recent mass shootings, including the slaying of churchgoers in Charleston, S.C., and office workers in San Bernardino, Calif. In his blog postings and radio interviews, Mr. Tracy has said the Newtown massacre may have been carried out by ‘crisis actors’ employed by the Obama administration.”
Here are a few more news quotes about Tracy:
Orlando Sun-Sentinel op-ed (“Tenure be damned, Professor James Tracy embarrasses FAU,” 12/17/2015):
“In our view, academic freedom is not a license to do or say whatever you want, consequences be damned. So we welcome the termination proceedings begun against Tracy this week by FAU, a university he continues to embarrass with his ‘didn’t happen’ conspiracy theories about the Sandy Hook Elementary School slaughter, the Boston Marathon bombing, the San Bernardino shooting and other mass attacks.”
The Washington Times (“Florida Atlantic University moves to fire professor who questioned Sandy Hook,” 12/18/2015):
“Florida Atlantic University moved Wednesday to fire a professor who has faced calls for resignation after claiming the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School was a staged drill that the community benefitted from financially…The school said in a release on its website that School of Communication and Multimedia Studies professor James Tracy was served Wednesday with a notice of termination, to which he has 10 days to respond.”
And then we have this from the Daily Beast (“This Professor Trolled Sandy Hook Parents—And His University Wants Him Gone,” 12/17/2015):
“James Tracy, who taught a course chock-full of conspiracy theories at Florida Atlantic University, reportedly harassed parents of a Sandy Hook child, demanding proof of his death… Florida Atlantic University announced on Thursday it planned to fire tenured professor James Tracy for allegedly harassing parents of the victims of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary that left 20 children and six adults dead… After years of Tracy stating that the massacre was a government conspiracy, the professor reportedly sent a certified letter to Lenny and Veronique Pozner demanding they prove that their deceased 6-year-old, Noah, ever existed. When the family notified the police of the harassment, Tracy responded on a ‘Sandy Hook Hoax’ Facebook page, claiming that the family had ‘made out very well for itself financially’ from the tragedy… That was enough for the university to take action.”
Here is my interview with James Tracy. Let’s read, at length, what he has to say:
Q: Did you harass Lenny and Veronique Pozner about their son, Noah?
In March of 2015, Lenny Pozner, acting on behalf of his “HONR Network,” filed a copyright infringement claim with Automattic, the ISP and parent company of WordPress.com, where my blog, Memory Hole, is housed. Pozner/HONR Network demanded that I take down an image that Pozner purports to hold copyright ownership in. This well-known photograph, purportedly of [Lenny’s son] Noah Pozner, was voluntarily provided to the press by the Pozners in December 2012 following the Sandy Hook massacre event and has since been reproduced millions of times in print, electronic, and online media throughout the world.
An identical photo of Noah Pozner also appeared in December 2014 in the wake of a school massacre in Peshawar Pakistan, purportedly representing a child victim in that shooting. I wrote an article in January 2015 on the re-emergence of this image and included the photo in question. Even the BBC eventually acknowledged how the photo first appeared following the 2012 Newtown massacre. When Automattic/Wordpress presented me with Pozner’s takedown request it remarked that my inclusion of the photo in the post constituted “fair use” under US copyright law, which provides for republication of copyrighted material for the purpose of “commentary or criticism.” Nonetheless, I removed the photograph from my blog, and responded to the allegations, referencing free speech concerns and asking for documentation and evidence supporting Pozner’s copyright claims. To my knowledge, I am not aware of any journalistic outlet that has ever attempted to accurately report this.
I should note that by early 2015, Lenny Pozner had become infamous within the alternative media community for filing blatantly frivolous infringement claims. Pozner’s objective appears to be to shutdown any commentary or criticism of the controversy surrounding his son’s death, as alleged. To contest such claims, anonymous bloggers and YouTubers must divulge their legal identities. Pozner and his HONR Network associates then use this identifying information to stalk and harass Sandy Hook researchers, going so far as to contact their family members, neighbors, and employers, to suggest these researchers are emotionally harming Sandy Hook victims’ families. But there’s nothing unlawful with such study and criticism. On the contrary, it is Pozner and his group who are involved in unlawful stalking, harassment and defamation. This very harassment and defamation of myself reached a crescendo with the Sun-Sentinel’s December 10 publication of an article by Lenny and Veronique Pozner entitled, “Sandy Hook Massacre 3rd Anniversary: Two Parents Target FAU Conspiracy Theorist; FAU Professor Taunts Sandy Hook Parents.”
Q: How do you view free speech and the 1st Amendment, in light of what is happening to you?
Free speech and academic freedom are closely intertwined. When school officials at FAU [Florida Atlantic University] initially expressed their concerns about my blog in 2013, I explained to them that if I could not practice my constitutional rights during my personal time, then my right to academic freedom and professional autonomy on the job is likewise threatened. This is the case for university faculty at FAU and throughout the country. The American Association of University Professors and The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education supported my stance in letters of protest to school officials when FAU first attempted to discipline me for my personal blogging in March of 2013. Regardless of the lies told by the Pozners and their media allies, I don’t think there’s any question given what has transpired that FAU has acted wrongfully, and in violation of its own principles of academic freedom, institutional tenure and my constitutional rights.
Q: On what basis did the University fire you?
FAU’s contention is that I failed to file “outside activity” forms for my personal blog. In January of 2013, they made the same request and at that time I explained that such endeavors are personal and protected by the First Amendment. The administration fell silent for 34 months, and then abruptly resurrected this unconstitutional basis as cause for termination in late December 2015. For their exact “reasoning”, see FAU’s Notice of Termination, dated January 6, 2016.
Q: Before this situation finally blew up, you must have known you were on a collision course with the University. What were your thoughts about that?
I had no idea that university officials would so brazenly violate the well-established principles of academic freedom and my constitutional rights. In 2014, a new president, John Kelly, was recruited from Clemson University and installed at Florida Atlantic. His administration was characterized to me by one senior FAU faculty member as the most anti-faculty administration in thirty-plus years. This administration has proceeded to discipline or threaten with discipline several faculty who’ve made public pronouncements that Kelly and his inner circle disfavor.
In September 2015 the Kelly administration attempted to effectively eliminate tenure by implementing a controversial post-tenure review process that faculty eventually caught wind of and protested. I also reported on that episode.
See James Tracy, “Academic Freedom Threatened in America: The Policy of Post Tenure Review,” Global Research, September 20, 2015.
Q: In a similar vein, people must have been telling you, in the past few years, that you were treading on dangerous ground, relative to job security. How did you respond?
I can’t recall any colleague suggesting that I was in danger of being disciplined, much less being stripped of tenure and fired. I was confident that tenure and the First Amendment still had meaning at FAU. I was obviously proven wrong.
Q: Do you believe your present situation is a test case for academic freedom in America?
Absolutely—for academic freedom, freedom of speech, and freedom of the press. All of these protections exist so that faculty and citizens can examine, research, and publicize the potential malfeasance and wrongdoing of those in power. As some academics and journalists have come to realize, however, is the unwritten code guiding what topics can actually be addressed. Political assassinations and similar events are often deemed suspect and off-limits.
I think this is strongly-rooted in the misleading yet almost uniformly adhered to notion that we live in an “open society,” a mythic pluralism overseen by properly functioning political institutions inhabited by fair-minded political leaders and bureaucrats, all of whom have our best interests at heart. Of course, universities are a central part of this mythic democratic order. Researching such difficult subject matter calls the legitimacy of this system into question. At the same time controversial and poorly-understood topics are exactly what tenure and academic freedom exist to foster and protect.

In Empire Of The Wheel – An Occult Investigation Of Occult Espionage And Murder Walter Bosley & Richard Spence take us on a fascinating, and yet disturbing examination of the occult happenings of 20th Century Southern California.
From the get go the authors begin to paint the picture of what the environment was like, and what was taking place when each of the unfortunate victims were slain.
A very detailed and extensive inspection is done of the facts, as well as various theories that might shed light into what possibly took place during those murky times. The word might is used because it’s up to the reader to decide whether or not these murders [that’s what my gut says] were ‘random’, or if they had a more deeper meaning – an esoteric one perhaps.
The authors caution against expecting answers outright, as definitive answers are one of the things that are hard to pinpoint with such an abstruse case that has facts missing and is about a century old.
The book is part “Unsolved Mysteries” and part “X-Files” [of the esoteric type]. Sprinkle in the author’s unique perspectives and they elucidate a picture – a rather astounding one at that – that is being painted of such astonishing magnitude that it would shock the average mind.
As mentioned in the book, this mystery is nigh forgotten [if not outright unknown] by most. It is quite sad, because the events that took place 100 years ago seem to have a devious connection to the latest San Bernardino event that took place in 2015, yes, 100 years ago to the date that it all took place. Coincidence?
This investigation of this [esoteric] criminal casts its web across many different characters, and is absolutely so chock-full of coincidences synchronicities that its mind boggling. Seriously. That’s not an overstatement. There are so many by the end of the book that to argue against some sort of coordination would stretch the incisive mind.
From ritual sacrifice, to , and even British & German spies coupled with an examination of the sinking of the Lusitania that might dovetail with the book’s main premise, this book has as much range as it has scope. And still, it has more.
The authors even anchor part of their analysis with an assessment of the Zodiac Killer and his machinations. Keeping in mind that the Zodiac Killer was never caught, it was disturbingly eerie how poignant the correlations were between what took place in 1915, and what took place 1968.
All in all, this book paints a much murkier picture of this segment of history than people would ever imagine. Still, it’s a much needed point of view that is needed in order to not only understand what did take place a long time ago, but for what has taken place again since then and is taking place still now.
