Despite initial skepticism, I have been blown away over the years of how often there is in fact much more evidence, AND much more convincing evidence, for some “conspiracy theories” than for the official explanations — which are also in fact, usually conspiracies theories too, just with a different bad guy and narrative. The very label “conspiracy” is sometimes used intentionally as a slur, instructing the listener to dismiss, reject or deny anything said as “crazy.” Therefore we who try to approach these difficult topics often prefer to talk about these not as “conspiracy theories,” but just as an “alternate analysis” of an event — a competing theory to be weighed by the evidence at hand.

If you have yet to scratch the surface of such alternative analyses of our shared reality, then a very warm welcome to you. Do not be afraid. Such information may lead you to a very painful reality, but this is such an exciting time to be alive and we must learn from our mistakes if we wish to move forward at this critical period. No matter your familiarity with the information, I stronger encourage all of my listeners to check out the work of James Corbett with his Corbett Report at CorbettReport.com, Open Source Intelligence News. I found his work far later in my research than I would have liked, but he has really covered these topics in a format and voice I have long waited for. I thank him dearly for this, and request that you listen to any of his episodes which spark your interest, for I will usually only scratch the surface here.

A bit over a year ago, while diving into the difficult task of trying to convince my loved ones of my “crazy” beliefs regarding recent history, I had a desire to use some resource to quickly bring the few dozen key mainstream articles with the evidence vital to a few alternative theories. There were some good data dumps on specific topics, but I couldn’t find what I had in mind for the bigger, interconnected picture. My lazy, pass-the-buck first response was to contact Infowars and see if they already had such a thing or were interested in making one, since they are a key nerve [center] for the movement. Having professionally built web-based software for nearly a decade, it only took me a couple days without any response before I started coding.

I built a collaborative online research database to help me organize and backup all this key evidence and documentation which had convinced me of such crazy realities. I hastily named my database InfowarDocs.org, but after growing with it for over a year I have just renamed it AltBib.Com, aka AlternateBibliography.Com. I came to this name because it has essentially become a bibliography for many of the alternative theories, which ironically references mostly mainstream sources.

I basically use it to catalog articles, documents and some video clips I find somewhat compelling related to any of the topics which spark my interest. I use a heavy tagging method and backup the source document on my server, except for the last half of the videos posted (when there’s time). There are now over 4,700 links posted and 6,500 tags/keywords (and 46,000 linkages/taggings). So it’s a great resource for those documents on the tip of your tongue, or to look over the evidence for alternative theories with more distance from the bombastic narratives of alleged conspiracies.

Any visitor can suggest links to the database using the same tool I do, and add tags to links or vote for links as “Interesting” or not. I still personally go through all the suggestions and try to keep the formatting relatively consistent. As a side-note, over the course of adding the first 2,000 links to my database my tagging style developed a lot, so I am still working on re-tagging many of the first 1,600 documents better to match the later style.

But without promoting the site too much and focusing on it as a personal research tool, I still received some encouraging feedback from people online, for example:

“I was motivated to donate to your work because I feel that we really need to concentrate on ‘fact checking’ in order to make real headway.” – Jim

“I have researched for three years on our government corruption and the elite controlling our government. People need to wake up and do some research and reading. The one place I have found more factual documents with the truth than any other is http://www.Infowardocs.org. You will be amazed at the documents they have in there, and they are all verifiable people.” – Janine

A huge thank you to the bunch of people who have suggested a few hundred links, rated links and passed the site on to their friends. And an extra thank you to Jim and the other person who donated in support of my efforts! Pretty early on, I also decided to announce my database on Jason Bermas’ show, The Infowarrior, to share my work with him and his very cool and relevant audience: [see video clips in video version of episode]

The Infowarrior, May 4th, 2009, GCN & PrisonPlanet.tv

Jason: Alright let’s go to Morgan in Maryland. Morgan, you’re on the air.

Morgan: Hi Jason, I just want to help out, I was so excited to hear a few callers call in earlier asking for document lists. And it’s something I came — I came into the same wall a few weeks ago trying to, you know, passionately explain to my parents and my girlfriend about a lot of these issues, and I just wanted a list where I could just search for the words and try to show them the documents…

Jason: Well you know what, well we’re going to come back to you and we’re going to talk about this more. But really, the forums are the place to go, that’s where you can have a subject line, where you can have a quick link. Remember we can’t just give you other people’s information and documents. We have to write stories about that and source it. We’ll come back after this. It’s the Infowarrior with Jason Bermas, PrisonPlanet.tv, Infowars.com.  ….   Back to Morgan in Maryland. Morgan, go ahead…

Morgan: Thanks Jason. So basically I’ve created InfowarDocs.org. Basically documentation — it’s all the links you guys reference. Last night, for example, I just re-watched the Obama Deception and pulled up every link, entered it as a link in there. So if you’re watching Obama Deception with your friends, you can do a quick Control+F or search or filter by tags on there.

Jason: And that always helps us by the way, we love that Morgan. Somebody did that with Martial Law [911], if you go to MartialLaw.info, or you just type MartialLaw.info into Google, they did the same exact thing where they went through the entire thing and went through every document that we sourced in that film, and now you’ve done it for the Obama Deception, and even the stuff that we were talking about on our radio programs over the week. This is impressive and we need this kind of dedication, sir.

[* side-note: at least as of May 4th, MartialLaw.info was no longer online *]

Morgan: Great! And I would love for people to add — suggest links, and even if somebody in the studio wants a password, you guys could add links directly. But having people add tags to things and rating things, I think it could be a great open source tool, ’cause I feel that’s our advantage. You know, Google it yourself, learn it yourself. You guys are doing great, thank you so much!

Jason: Thank you Morgan, people go check that out, and hopefully Morgan will get on the forums and show that website to people. So if you do want an archive, if you do want a source list, he’s going to provide it for you.

[* I failed on the forums task, any pros who like the site want to pick up my slack and help promote it? *]

The Infowarrior, May 18th, 2009, GCN & PrisonPlanet.tv

Jason: Let’s go to Morgan in Maryland. Morgan, you’re on the line.

Morgan: Hi! I called you a couple weeks ago —

Jason: How you doin’ Morgan?

Morgan: Good, and you?

Jason: Good

Morgan: I’ve been working on this InfowarDocs.org. And last I talked to you I had just gone through the Obama Deception and put all the references and sources and articles up there. Since then, now I’m up to 1,700 documents and articles. I’m pulling from Obama Deception, Endgame, Martial Law 911, Fabled Enemies, Loose Change both Final Cut and 2nd Edition.

Jason: Excellent. So maybe I should this girl who’s doing this paper, this newsletter, over to your site for these sources.

Morgan: Yea yea, it’s not — I mean don’t have like a whole lot — I all the bills from the last month or so at least. But it is a growing resource, and hope to keep adding, so if she wants to add too, that’s awesome. Other than that I just wanted to say ‘great job,’ I finally watched Final Cut for the first time and I had no idea how much new info was in there! It’s amazing, great stuff!

Jason: Oh yea, it’s a completely different movie. Yea no, everyone thinks we’re just going to rehash the second edition. No, we took the best, maybe 20 minutes, MAYBE 20 minutes. Alright, from the first movie — the first movie was 60 minutes long. We took the best 30 minutes, we made a 90 minute documentary. Added a whole hour. Final Cut was a completely new movie. We maybe touched on two or three of the points in the other one, maybe 15 to 20 minutes of old footage, and then you had a two hour and nine minute movie. Literally an hour an forty-five minutes of new material. I’m going to hold you over, Morgan, because I want you to give that website on the other side. It’s the Infowarrior with Jason Bermas, PrisonPlanet.tv, Infowars.com. … Morgan are you still there my friend?

Morgan: Yes I am.

Jason: Excellent, why don’t you give out that website. Again, Morgan is going through all the documentaries that we carry here and have created here at Infowars and myself, and going down the line on the facts, giving you the source articles, much like MartialLaw.info. You’re going through all the films: the Obama Deception, Martial Law [911], you said Fabled Enemies, Loose Change Final Cut, Endgame —

Alex Jones: — WhatIsTheEndgame.com. Yea that’s a bibliography, I think he’s one of the guys that did that…

Morgan: — I wish [* trying to correct the wrongly placed praise *]

Alex: …and there is the viewers guide at theObamaDeception.net. The viewers guide, when you click on About, is a bibliography we just call it a viewers guide, we probably need to change that. And you can see all the facts there. So I salute all of you.

Jason: Alright give out that website, Morgan.

Alex: I salute you!

Jason: Go ahead Morgan.

Morgan: Thank you, Alex!

Alex: I SALUTE YOUU!

Morgan: I SALUTE YOUUU!

Alex: Hip Hip Hooray!

Jason: Alright, hit up that website, Morgan.

Morgan: InfowarDocs.org

Jason: InfowarDocs.org. Thanks for holding of buddy.

Some of the issues most relevant to my interests as a web-based software engineer, are net neutrality and “cybersecurity.” There is very real potential for losing access to so much this controversial information if it is largely censored with a loss of net neutrality or if the internet is taken down in the name of emergency. Therefore, I soon added another aspect to my database: the offline backup. This one year old backup is really really crappy compared to the current version of the live web site, but it does allows you to browse through backups of these documents and video clips through your web browser without any internet connection. You can download the ~4.5GB ZIP file at http://altbib.com/offline.

The offline backup, includes most sources cited from all featured stories on PrisonPlanet.com from May 1st to June 7th, 2009, and most of the articles referenced in those articles, and those articles, and those articles. The database also includes almost all web-accessible articles, documents and some video clips referenced in the films, The Obama Deception, End Game, Martial Law 9/11, Fabled Enemies, Loose Change Final Cut AND 2nd Edition. Since the making of Offline Backup Version 1, I’ve also added documents referenced in Zeitgeist: Addendum, Who Killed the Electric Car?, The World According to Monsanto, Orwell Rolls in his grave, Mind the Gap, 7/7 Ripple Effect, and David Ray Griffin’s 9/11: The Myth and The Reality. I have also finally added the first episode of the Corbett Report and plan to eventually add all of them, as well as adapting his documentation time stamp format.

As the months went on, I have continued to catalog all the documents I find interesting during the course of my natural research on the various topics at the top of my long list. Periodically, I am compelled to organize my resulting thoughts through writing. This process very much helps me hone in on what I think I know, when wading these conspiratorial waters, and I plan to continue writing more.

So recently I realized that as long as I’m spending dozens or hundreds of hours researching these topics before writing about them, it would at least be worth me reading my writings into the camera to give people wider access to my ideas and information. Not to mention, how many people want to read some guy’s 10 page research paper online? So with a couple weeks worth of my instinctive volunteering/hobby hours I’ve created all the art for a template to turn my blog into a vlog and podcast. Then on top of this, I’m excited to open up this forum to anyone looking to share their perspective with me. Please feel free to reuse and remix the episode template, which doesn’t have me in it, so you can drop yourself in as an unofficial — but way cooler — Wiki World Order reporter.

Many of this movement’s greats have inspired me like John Perkins, Alex Jones, Jason Bermas, William Cooper and of course James Corbett. I encourage you to lend your ear to their work, as it is my goal to minimize trying to replicate old analysis of long past events and maximize focus on promoting the best solutions I can find out there. Some episodes might be more or less theoretical, practical, casual, opinionated, documentary-style or even family-safe, but hopefully all will be relatively informative and constructive discussions of solutions to the world’s most awkward and painful problems.

And of course, never take my word for ANYTHING. I beg of you to research all of the topics that interest you, come to your own conclusions, and share them with the Wiki World Order. Throughout my years of research, for better and worse, I have ignored countless rabbit holes to focus on issues I find most provable and actionable. But we are all still learning and teaching together, and it will be even more beautiful in retrospect…we just need to ensure we all get there together. So look alive, and always keep learning. Thank you.
