The Mysterious Sudden Death of Isaac Kappy [UPDATES]

Jump to Latest Update

Eulogy From Fiona Barnett

Isaac Kappy, a whistleblower about pedophilia in Hollywood, has been found dead in a case immediately closed as a suicide, a couple of days after making a video saying “I am definitely not feeling suicidal”.

I will be adding to this post as new information comes to light, updates will be posted at the end.

Kappy forced himself off the Transwestern Road bridge onto Interstate 40 where he was struck by a Ford pickup truck…Authorities said two teenagers driving by got out of their vehicle and tried to physically restrain Kappy from jumping, but failed. No one else was injured during the incident and the investigation has been closed.

Sunrise in Bellemont, AZ is 5:22am at this time of year. Kappy died around 7:26am, as far as we know.

Here is the bridge he supposedly chose to jump from force himself off.

If you wanted to throw somebody in front of a speeding truck and make it look like a suicide, this would be ideal. If you want to leave this world in a final theatrical manner befitting a Hollywood star, after making a lengthy and mysterious video and a wordy Instagram post, this seems less ideal. Wouldn’t you pick a more spectacular location? He was not far from the Grand Canyon.

The bridge is sort of in the middle of nowhere, right next door to an active military base. One of the only things around is the Arizona Veterans’ Memorial Cemetery. If you were going to fake a death, you would need a body…just sayin’. Maybe he entered the witness protection program?

The next stop on the road Isaac Kappy jumped off is Camp Navajo

Camp Navajo is an inspectable site under the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty and houses an Arizona Army National Guard headquarters unit, explosives ordnance company, and military police company – as well as Lockheed Martin, the National Weather Service and the US Forest Service. The 28,347 acre facility has miles of underground tunnels, bunkers and railroads. It provides services to “various Department of Defense agencies”.

Customers include the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Air Force, the Defense Logistics Agency, the Defense Intelligence Agency and NASA. Primary customers for depot storage services are the U.S. Air Force (Minuteman II), the U.S. Navy (Trident I), and Defense Logistics Agency (strategic and critical materiel). The Camp also provides explosive storage services to other DoD customers ranging from small arms ammunition to large rocket motors. These customers have entrusted over $7,000,000,000 worth of their munitions.

It is a massive ammo dump, a curious coincidence given Kappy’s threat of a heavy weapons shootout with the cops on August 1 2018, which led to him being investigated by LAPD:

“In light of the interesting traffic happening around my house I want to make something CRYSTAL CLEAR: while I am a VERY strong advocate of peaceful disclosure, make no mistake, assets are in place and if you kill me or even try, it will rain .50 cals in the Hollywood Hills.”

Isaac Kappy was a Hollywood actor (Thor) who came out in 2018 as a whistleblower exposing pedophilia in Hollywood. He named his former friend Seth Green and his wife Claire as pedophiles with a hidden room in their mansion “where we keep the children”, and called out Steven Spielberg as a pedophile. Lift the Veil’s video with Kappy talking about that was ranked very highly by YouTube’s algorithms and triggered a backlash where LTV was placed on a Media Matters “alt-right” hit list.

Isaac Kappy supposedly physically assaulted Paris Jackson, another former friend.

Isaac made several appearances on TMZ and Enty Lawyer’s Crazy Days and Nights blog. Kappy challenged Gabe Hoffman, the owner of “An Open Secret” movie about Hollywood pedophilia who has been accused of being a gatekeeper seeking to control online dialog related to child sex trafficking. Hoffman is part of the crew connected to the CDAN, and has also been suspiciously critical of Lift The Veil.

Kappy appeared at the 2018 Politicon conference photographed with Zionist social media princess Laura Loomer and Media Matters mastermind David Brock, before he skipped the country to spend a summer in Australia.

Kappy said he was just trolling at Politicon. He also said “Kappy is a psyop”, several times.

Media Matters came out against Isaac Kappy and Nathan Stolpman from Lift The Veil, who has hosted ritual abuse survivors and whistleblowers on his popular YouTube channel.

I have seen many people in live stream chats today wondering what happened between Fiona Barnett and Isaac Kappy. I published some of the evidence 3 months ago in The Sawman, The Priest and the Fi-Fi Dossier.

I was speaking to Fiona on Twitter about Kappy the day that she took her account down. She suspected him of being connected to the dodgy dossier psychological operation launched against her. Ensin is Eliahi Priest of the “InsigniaGate” operation. Kappy was hanging out with him in Queensland, Australia while staying in Fiona Barnett’s home.


These are some of the last messages Fiona Barnett ever had with Isaac Kappy. Kappy was trying to bring Eliahi Priest into her home, despite Priest’s self-confessed connections to the Deep State as an “international diplomat” and diamond trader.


A few days ago I tweeted about what I guess was Isaac Kappy’s final stream. He made a long video saying he did something very bad, but he was not suicidal (video in @TheAAGabriel post).

Kappy apparently deleted every post from his Instagram, leaving only this “suicide note”:


The Truth community are already accusing each other of being responsible, with some demanding that nobody investigate the death and just accept the police and media reports on face value. Never mind Kappy’s own statement that he was not feeling suicidal.

Someone pointed out the Skull and Cross Bones subliminal messaging in the first second of Defango’s stream:

Defango accused his nemesis TS of causing this death through cyber-stalking, TS fought back with evidence.

Arizona is Craig Sawyer’s home turf. Another truther who died suddenly after publicly investigating big names in #PedoGate, Jenny Moore, called out the Arizona mafia and Sawyer in the days before her death. Sawyer confirmed that he had been in communication with Kappy about providing him protection, but didn’t pass the “vetting”.

Craig Sawyer was definitely “in the elite circles” when as a mercenary in the Middle East he provided close protection security services for Hillary Clinton, John McCain, and Donald Rumsfeld.

The letter did not seem like Isaac Kappy’s style

Isaac Kappy got kicked off Twitter. MovieWeb has some good highlights from his Tweets from last year when he came out with his story.

Last year I was asked to join the #illuminati by @sethgreen
The offer was $250k a year and any car I wanted. As if I would abuse children for such a paltry sum
😂😂😂#Qanon#SDCC2018#ThisEndsNow#pedogate— Isaac Kappy (@IsaacKappy) July 22, 2018

Hey @lapd I saw you camped outside of my house. Thank you. I’m on my way to the W right now.— Isaac Kappy (@IsaacKappy) July 26, 2018

People are talking a lot about #pedophile jokes. The craziest pedo joke I ever heard was when Seth turned to me and said “this is where we keep the children!” As he was pulling back a secret bookshelf that revealed a hidden room at his Malibu house.— Isaac Kappy (@IsaacKappy) July 23, 2018

Hey @jamesgunn you know how I know your a pedophile? Because your friends are pedos too! Like @lloydkaufman@sethgreen@claregrant@yarvo and many more. There has been ample time to come clean, and yet I watch you just lie and lie and lie. Yarvo why’d u go private? Lol— Isaac Kappy (@IsaacKappy) July 22, 2018

I love life
I am not suicidal
I don’t use opiods
I don’t own a red scarf
I won’t be getting inebriated
I like to move it, move it— Isaac Kappy (@IsaacKappy) July 26, 2018

Also please note that I NEVER use opioids— Isaac Kappy (@IsaacKappy) July 25, 2018

In light of the interesting traffic happening around my house I want to make something CRYSTAL CLEAR: while I am a VERY strong advocate of peaceful disclosure, make no mistake, assets are in place and if you kill me or even try, it will rain .50 cals in the Hollywood Hills.— Isaac Kappy (@IsaacKappy) July 25, 2018

I am not suicidal. I feel GREAT!!!— Isaac Kappy (@IsaacKappy) July 23, 2018

At some point someone has to tell the truth, and trust me, I don’t want to be the one, bur you just keep lying and lying.— Isaac Kappy (@IsaacKappy) July 22, 2018

Its funny watching the media bend over backwards to defend “jokes” about fucking kids. We ALL KNOW. You fired @therealroseanne over one bad joke, yet try to excuse 10k tweet? @JamesGunn— Isaac Kappy (@IsaacKappy) July 22, 2018

@IncredibleCulk I know you were abused as a child. It’s fucking awful. Please help the world and tell them.— Isaac Kappy (@IsaacKappy) July 22, 2018

@ParisJackson remember that party last summer? Why did a child show up asking for Seth? Who was that little black boy?— Isaac Kappy (@IsaacKappy) July 22, 2018

Possible Connections to Other Current Events?

I meant to link earlier to this 2005 Vanity Fair story about Michael Jackson, the Yakuza, the Mafia, the CIA, and his ownership of the Beatles’ publishing rights. Michael Jackson’s estate has been in the news again recently with more pedo allegations coming out in Leaving Neverland.

Isaac Kappy’s “it will rain .50 cal in the Hollywood Hills” comment, followed by dying next door to an ammo dump, should be considered in light of the massive cache of 1000+ long guns and ammunition just found in the Hollywood Hills in an abandoned house next door to Illuminati Satanists Jay-Z and Beyonce, owned by Getty’s mistress. Another of her $50 million abandoned property portfolio in L.A., a Malibu beach house, features Masonic themes, secret chambers and passageways, and 666s and pentagrams on the wall. She literally had the same artwork as Jeffrey Epstein’s temple.

#QAnon posted about the family which runs California, which is the Gettys (or could arguably be the Hearsts or Bechtels). Governor Gavin Newsom’s father was their lawyer.

The links between Satanism and gun-running go surprisingly deep. Church of Satan founder Anton LaVey’s Uncle was part of the Lansky Syndicate, working directly for Bugsy Siegel. They rans the guns into Israel that enabled the State.

See: Arming David, The Church of Satan’s Connection to the Creation of Israel

These things may not be related, and merely coincidences added to the string of other coincidences connecting Isaac Kappy to #PedoWood.

This language about “a Good Man” just came out in the NXIVM trial. Kappy used the same language in his last video. Did he know Allison Mack, or any of the other Hollywood people connected to NXIVM (for example Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem)?

Someone on 4chan pointed out that in Kappy’s last video he gives a couple of clues to suggest he may be under duress, including making the throat-slitting gesture.

I’m not suggesting the Chans are a reliable source, but these comments were interesting:

Eliahi Priest gave a “burnt offering” and released a new track from Kappy:


[Update 5/15/19 8:28pm]

Vegan Mikey swears vengeance for Kappy, saying “I’ll be with you soon”

David Shurter echoes Fiona Barnett’s concerns that Isaac Kappy was a mind control victim.

A Telegram group for Kappy supporters offers more clues to his timeline leading up to the tragic event.

He was last seen in the Telegram group 30 hours before his death was reported.

Somebody ran the Gematria of “Bellemont”, where Kappy died. It comes up as “God’s Plan”.

More information is also coming to light about his signals during his long stream that he was under duress.

Tom Hanks, one of the A-list Hollywood stars called out by Isaac Kappy as a pedophile, made a weird tweet last month about “roadkill” on Historic Route 66. He is currently filming a movie in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where Kappy was from. While there Hanks has been tweeting repeatedly about lost gloves. Masonic symbolism? The I-40 where Kappy died is the Historic Route 66.

Hanks’ latest Tweet, on the day of Kappy’s death, is a red handkerchief. The red scarf is strongly associated with Hollywood star suicides.



The first media reference to the event was at 8am local time

“a good man”

The Internet archive only ever saved Isaac Kappy’s Instagram once, August 13 2018. He had some vaguely occulty stuff there, the hands pointing up and down = Baphomet

[Update May 16 12:27pm]

Jesse Spots has identified Bart Graves, the police PR person who gave the world the news of Isaac Kappy’s death, as a former Warner Television producer. He is also a former spokesman for the Democratic Party in Arizona.

He is a member of the Sigma Chi fraternity, which has as “honorable” members Brad Pitt and David Letterman.

Hat tip to Lift the Veil for alerting me to this research.

Camp Navajo has been identified as a site for Deep Underground Military Bases, something I spoke about in the Shadow History of Burners – Part 1.

The Phoenix Enigma drove under the bridge where Kappy allegedly died around 2 hours after the incident and saw no sign of any police or ambulance activity. He made a video about it.

From The Phoenix Enigma

First things first, I believe the locations of these D.U.M.B.s to be under or near Camp Navajo located in Bellemont, AZ, The Kingman/Wikieup area, and maybe Munds Park; Of these three I’m leaning heavily to Camp Navajo and something north of Wikieup near the HWY 93 / I-40 junction. Aside from the staggering number witnessed UFO’s and testimony of strange military operations in these areas, I believe the following reasons to be grounds for these locations.

Google view Bellemonte
Aerial view of Bellemont. Note the extremely close proximity of rails, power lines, and interstate.
  1. This region is centrally located. It lays between the NSA building in Utah, the ICBM’s in southern AZ, NORAD in Colorado, Luke AFB in Phoenix and all the bases in California.
  2. This area is the first viable area south of the Grand Canyon. The next available locations would be north of the Canyon. It also runs along the main transportation routes. Any tunnels coming from the east would either have to veer to the north-through Utah- or south along the southern rim of the Grand Canyon. This remote high desert corridor is along a natural route.The Colorado Plateau
  3. These sites are on the Colorado Plateau. The Colorado Plateau is a rather stable platform and is comprised primarily of soft Limestone and Sandstone with a top layer of volcanic rock. This Limestone is naturally riddled with caves, and sandstone is easily carvable with today’s equipment. All three mediums, including the volcanic, provide great drainage, or percolation. The Grand Canyon Caverns lay 80 miles to the west and is a natural cavern once utilized by the U.S. military during WW2 to store munitions, and supplies. The water table on the Colorado Plateau is quite deep due to the makeup of the soil stratification, so groundwater entering the facility wouldn’t be an issue. Water doesn’t begin pooling and running laterally until it reaches a Dolomite layer extremely deep where it runs south emerging in the Verde Valley and further south still. A quick records search for the Bellemont area plan did show water being hit at a level of 200 feet, but the production was only 14 gallons a minute (rather slow). This is one of two wells in the town, not including three small springs, three reservoirs, and one well located on the Camp Navajo Base its self.
  4. No major geological activity in the area. There are a few minor tremors from time to time but never anything catastrophic or major. In fact, up until 2014, I can’t recall a single quake in the area. And as of the writing of this article Nov 2015 we just had a minor quake out of the Black Canyon area to the south, but once again no damage of any kind.
  5. Mild weather. Arizona, as every snowbird will tell you has great weather, this is no secret. I would imagine that mild weather, especially winters would allow for easier movement and facilitation of year-round work.
  6. No flooding. This area of the state sees very little flooding of any kind. Come to think of it there are no hurricanes, tornadoes, or catastrophes of any kind in this area of the state.
  7. Proximity to I-40, I-17, and Hwy 93. For the reason of supplying and logistics, both in times of emergency and day to day operations, I-40 is a main artery in the U.S. highway system. Camp Navajo sits right on this highway which connects with I-17 only 9 miles to the east and U.S. Highway 93 or the (NAFTA) highway to the west. Munds Park sits right on top of I-17 with I-40 connecting 20 miles to the north. Phoenix is the 6th largest city in the U.S. and is located only 2 hours to the south. The Wikieup/Kingman base would be located near the I-40 HWY 93 junction. Hwy 93 was also recently upgraded to interstate 11 and is slated to be the newest cross-country highway route connecting Canada to Mexico.
  8. Proximity to the Santa Fe Railroad. We all know, or at least should know by now that almost every military base in the U.S. lays in extremely close proximity to a railroad. The rails are the most efficient means of moving mass amounts of supplies and construction equipment to any site, and these sites are located on or extremely near these rails.
  9. Low population density. This region of the state enjoys relatively low population. This is due in part to the lack or natural resources and available water, as well as the brutal winter storms. As of 2013 the population of Flagstaff 68,667, Bellemont 893, Williams 3,001, and Ash Fork 457. As you can see the immediate area enjoys an extremely low population with Flagstaff being the largest city around. What better place to construct a clandestine military installation than an already sparsely populated area.
  10. There is very little industry along the northern Arizona corridor. Forestry and Cattle pretty much make up the bulk of it. There is a high amount of tourism in the area due to the Grand Canyon, Flagstaff, Oak Creek Canyon/Sedona, and Humphrey’s Peak, but there are very few people who actually work in the area year round. Due to the makeup of the soil on the Colorado plateau, there is virtually no mining and limited water which greatly limits industry.
  11. In 1965 a new airport terminal was completed at Grand Canyon Airport. I was originally informed that this airport does not accommodate airbuses and was specifically designed to land Air Force One. I had some doubts about that so I arranged to speak with a long-term manager of one of the helicopter tour companies at the facility and he informed me quite the opposite. He stated that the Grand Canyon Airport has the 3rd longest runway in Arizona, after Sky Harbor Airport and Tucson International Airport. He stated, “it’s just over two miles long and is quite capable of landing any modern day aircraft.” He said that the runway was not specifically designed for Air Force one, but that the first family did land and visit there a couple years back. What I find interesting however is that the 3rd largest airport in the state is located in such a remote location. One would think that the airports at Prescott, Flagstaff, and Sedona would dwarf this remote outpost. While this doesn’t fit into the “mysterious” box, it does cause one to raise an eyebrow. The Grand Canyon Airport almost exclusively facilitates tourism; that is, small fixed wing aircraft, and helicopters. Why was this airport overbuilt to the extent to which it was? Logistically speaking it’s only a 45-minute drive or a 10-minute helicopter flight from Bellemont. There are also rumors of another D.U.M.B under the Grand Wash Cliffs in the north-west corner of Arizona just off Hwy 93, near the Grand Canyon West Sky Walk attraction. There are no high-value targets in the area, which means that in the case of a foreign attack this area would most likely be spared. This airport would surely make for an ideal, centrally located, and clandestine landing location for any covert government business due to its remoteness and extremely defensible terrain, the Grand Canyon, after all, is a natural fortress.
  12. Which brings me to another consideration. Although these D.U.M.B.S. Most assuredly are capable of generating their own power, I’m equally sure they most likely don’t do so on a regular non-emergency time basis. Camp Navajo sits just north of a high voltage power line. In fact, it sits between the Santa Fe railroad and a high voltage power line. High voltage power lines also pass right through the town of Wikieup, AZ. As well as through the Hwy 93 / I-40 juncture where many believe a major D.U.M.B is also located. It would make sense that these installations would be located either along these lines or in very close proximity to a power plant of some kind, hydro-electric being the most ideal. That being said, all these locations are located in relatively close proximity to Hoover Dam, with the reputed Grand Wash Cliffs D.U.M.B. Being the closest at only 34 miles away. The Hoover Dam is also in close proximity to Groom Lake and Area 51,

Missing children, underground bases and UFOs – Bibliotecapleyades


This is supposedly an account of the last communication with Isaac Kappy. His tire blew out 6 hours before he committed suicide, he spoke to this person for an hour about his gambling debts:

No explanation was given of who this was. We have to trust the Twitter handle putting it out – so it’s unverified hearsay. For all we know it could be someone trying to cover their tracks with a motive and a potential MKULTRA programming activation story. Was he stranded on a bridge until sunrise, close to a military base and Days Inn?

Wasn’t the evidence on Telegram from the day before?


There’s some rumors floating around of a “Dead Man’s Switch” information release, a video showing young children in a Turkish bath at a hotel. The hotel has been identified as the Titanic Mardan Palace in Turkey

https://twitter.com/PantherEyez7/status/1128712225764532224?s=20

A Deadman’s Switch that reveals no information, only more mystery. Is the Titanic reference steganography, a code message? The symbolism of the Titanic is there’s an unavoidable iceberg up ahead.

We have not yet seen a funeral notice or proper obituary.


Here’s a link to all Isaac Kappy’s periscope broadcasts. Download them while you can. Interestingly, the timestamp of his “last video” is about 1 minute shorter than the one I linked above.

According to the first media reports, the road was closed Monday May 13 2019 from 7:30am until 11am. This conflicts with the eyewitness account from The Phoenix Enigma who drove through there at 9:30 and saw nothing, and the lady called by Jesse Spots who drove through around 8 am and saw some type of police/EMS activity. Traffic was supposedly re-routed until 11am, neither witness reported that.

[Update May 16 7:18pm]

This Tweet from Seth Green is eerily ominous in light of what was announced on May 14. Seth has made no comment yet about his friend’s tragic death.

An Open Secret is an account that has blocked me, and yet is complaining about my Tweets. How exactly does that come about?

Many eyewitnesses in broad daylight? We only know of 2 eyewitnesses, at 7:26am. Who are the other eyewitnesses? How is it that An Open Secret knows about this but no other media is reporting it? Why are they keeping this key detail secret?

“Anon crazy person” – I am posting in my own name and am completely sane, thanks for the concern. Gabe Hoffman is not the only successful person able to operate Twitter.

“3 vehicles unaccounted for” – if you have information about the make, model, and drivers, please let us know. FORD: Found On Road Dead. We are only going by Bart Graves’ PR report. There is no obituary in any newspaper, no funeral notice. TMZ and People are taking the lead with this.

“Without getting the police report” – that would be great. Right now there are many researchers investigating this, including Jesse Spots who has been calling people locally looking for eyewitnesses and Phoenix Enigma who lives nearby. Perhaps these investigations will lead to a police report. Surely there is one American who can get it, without having to rely on someone in New Zealand to do all the work. An Open Secret have bragged in the past about their access to private investigator databases, maybe they can help out and publish the police report or other relevant details like the identities of the “many” eyewitnesses they cite or information about the three vehicles involved in this fatal collision.

Until then we only have what has been reported in multiple mainstream media sources who all have far more resources than this humble blog. A story that is originating from Bart Graves the PR person at the Arizona Department of Safety – which is located much closer to Craig Sawyer, in Phoenix. A quick spin in Sawman’s NASCAR machine oughtta do the job…

Arizona mafia territory: are they seriously arguing it’s not? See here:

Lynn de Rothschild sits on the board of the McCain Institute. Sawman’s old boss got in trouble for accepting donations from them in 2008.

The story of how the Bronfmans got their money and the story of No Name’s wife’s family is the same story: https://frankreport.com/2016/01/12/dirty-money-lets-look-at-where-bronfman-money-came-from/

Anyone suggesting that the Arizona mafia has no power in Northern Arizona is trying to sell you a bridge there. Their motives should be questioned.

Sawman claims to be an elite Special Forces Tier One Operator with a TOP SECRET clearance, but he’s unable to travel a few hundred clicks for operations in his own state? For this one he wouldn’t even have to leave the highway. It’s funny that An Open Secret back this guy up, who has taken millions in donations and kickbacks and never produced a documentary, while attacking the character of someone just because they are investigating this implausible incident. If you don’t believe what the cops and media say you’re insane – is that really the world AnOpenSecret and others are trying to sell to the public in the wake of a tragic mental illness fatality?

I might not have the police report, but I have the EMS traffic reporting the “possible suicide”. Stay tuned…I should be able to have something further out on this tonight.


Eulogy From Fiona Barnett

Fiona Barnett has published a eulogy to Isaac Kappy at her blog.

The public have been left with conflicting images of who and what the real Isaac Kappy was. Some label him a Psy-Op, a DID MK-ULTRA plant, a patsy, a LARP, a fake, a bad actor, a user, a drugged hippie. Others hail him as a hero, a genuine whistle-blower against Hollywood pedophilia, a talented musician, an intelligent comedian. Isaac was all those things and more. He was easy to love, and easy to hate all at the one time.

Kappy’s IMDB page has been updated with news of his demise. His nickname was changed to “Judas Iscariot”, which is weird.


I have listened to the EMS radio recordings for Coconino County and the Arizona Department of Highway Services for a couple of hours around the time of the accident.

It definitely seems like a real event with a deceased person with a California drivers license. As best as I can tell, there were two “striped” Highway Patrol officers on the scene and a police Sergeant. The timeline reported by witnesses – “something going on” around 8am (traffic diverted) and “nothing happening” by around 9:30am is consistent with the EMS traffic.

The first report of the event was “Reporting a possible suicide. A male subject jumped from the overpass onto [Westbound] I-40 and was not moving”. The first reported timestamp is 7:28am, by which time three units are on the scene (I’m not certain, but I think 2 police and 1 fire unit).

At 7:37am they shut down the off-ramp to see if there was any other evidence up on top of the bridge. By 7:42am traffic was diverted through Bellemont.

One thing of note: at 8:42am a police officer reported that the deceased’s car (a Hyundai) was located at the nearby Days Inn with a blown out front tire. So one of the 3 vehicles involved is confirmed. At 8:46am an officer described the event as a “963 suicide involving a vehicle”. CASE CLOSED, just over an hour after it happened. Had they even identified the victim at that point? One question was “is the victim still identifiable” and the answer was “10-4” (Yes)


[Update 5/18/19 9:36am]

An Open Secret are digging in on their insistence that nobody should have any questions about Kappy’s death. They actually claim his last video saying “I’m definitely not suicidal” is “evidence” that he was suicidal. This shows that either they are very stupid, or they know nothing about evidence…or that they are pushing an agenda and gaslighting the public.

Why do they talk about ignoring signs Kappy gave during the Periscope, then totally ignore the multiple signs that indicate he was under duress?


An intriguing connection between Isaac Kappy and “Kate Anon” has surfaced

Kappy with KateAnon last year.

Thomas from Cicada 3301 was threatened by Eliahi Priest last night, he sent an image that looked like Kate as some sort of “proof”.

KateAnon is a Q supporter who was involved in preventing an assassination attempt against President Trump. On the day of Kappy’s highway demise at a bridge in Arizona, there was a serious highway incident involving President Trump’s motorcade at a bridge in Louisiana which left three motorcycle officers injured.


Thanks to Lawrence from Lift The Veil Discord for giving us permission to republish this analysis of Kappy’s last Scope.

Kappy’s Clues (from his last Periscope)

[Hints at what he actually did (probably a social media post)]

“It happened a few days ago”

He did something in the blink of an eye that was “ego-induced”.

“Really stupid decision”.  “Bad things are coming my way— I can assure you of that.  I crossed a line I shouldn’t have crossed.” What he did at this point could still endanger people.  “I’ve done a huge disservice.”  “I want you to remember the love that I showed you”.  “You will find out soon enough.”  Somehow he feels he sold out.  Betrayal on a par with Judas. “There were some things that induced my decision…”

“So stupid, so selfish, and so petty.  Yes, something bad is about to happen.”

“If it’s something little, you don’t think about the consequences, about who might be affected by your decision, then you’re fucked.”

“Five minutes of folly”

“If you dig you’ll find it” !!!!!  Check Instagram!

There is another major military facility in the area: the Lowell US Naval Observatory at Flagstaff. It was named one of TIME’s 100 Most Important Places in the world, as it is the place where Pluto was discovered. This is one of the few telescopes in the world that looks at the stars optically, not digitally.

The satellite photo gives an idea of how much underground stuff there is around Camp Navajo
Looks like the Lowell Observatory makes extensive use of tunnels

The United States Naval Observatory provides a wide range of astronomical data and products, and serves as the official source of time for the U.S. Department of Defense and a standard of time for the entire United States.

The United States Naval Observatory is a fourth echelon operational command reporting to the Commander, Navy Oceanography and Meteorology Command. The Observatory’s headquarters are located in Washington, D.C., with field activities located at the Naval Observatory Flagstaff Station (NOFS) in Flagstaff, Ariz., and the USNO Alternate Master Clock located at Schriever Air Force Base near Colorado Springs, Colo.

The U.S. Naval Observatory performs an essential scientific role for the United States, the Navy, and the Department of Defense. Its mission includes determining the positions and motions of the Earth, Sun, Moon, planets, stars and other celestial objects; providing astronomical data; determining precise time; measuring the Earth’s rotation; and maintaining the Master Clock for the United States. Observatory astronomers formulate the theories and conduct the relevant research necessary to improve these mission goals.

This astronomical and timing data, essential for accurate navigation and the support of communications on Earth and in Space, is vital to the Navy and Department of Defense. It is also used extensively by other agencies of the government and the public at large.

For Flat Earthers, this is probably the epicenter of the disinformation.

The SunSpot Solar Observatory in New Mexico was linked to #PedoGate last year when it was mysteriously shut down, and the reason given was child porn.

https://www.space.com/41888-new-mexico-observatory-closure-child-porn-investigation.html

This is basically the next mountain range over from Lowell Observatory. You can argue over if 500 miles is a significant distance or not out in the desert, as an Australian who has driven over most of the United States I consider that a day’s drive – no big deal. Easy flight for light aircraft.

NASA and DoD employees keep getting busted for child porn – see this and this

I note that Los Alamos is in this part of the world too. The site of the most classified military project ever (that we know about), “The Manhattan Project” which was hatched at Bohemian Grove, Los Alamos continues as an active high research facility into nanotechnology and magnetic fields – ie. UFO shit.

Our national user facilities are the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center, the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory and the Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies.

Note the proximity to the Mexican border. This is a major human trafficking corridor

I might separate this D.U.M.B. stuff into another post, I’m still digging into this angle.


[Update May 17 2019 9:22pm]

https://www.periscope.tv/IsaacKappy/1OdKrvdvynvKX

One of Kappy’s last Scopes (May 2 2019) was naming names around Jeffrey Epstein. I find the style of it really cool, I wish I had known he was doing content like this, singing and with the beat while delivering truth. Seems like Kappy may have been inspired by Hoax Wars.

Significantly, he specifically calls out An Open Secret owner Gabe Hoffman, saying they have a house in West Palm Beach, Florida near Jeffrey Epstein. Epstein financed Bryan Singer, who was one of the subjects of the An Open Secret movie. He lists many things funded by Epstein, including Steve Bannon. He reminds us that Epstein owned the 10,000 acre Zorro Ranch in New Mexico and his plane’s flight logs show trips to Santa Fe.

Epstein purchased the property in 1993 from the Governor of New Mexico’s father, and was a donor to the Governor.

Kappy speculates that Alex Jones may have been linked to Epstein.

He said he got a “very good call” from the Pacific Northwest, “big things are happening”, and the guy recently busted in Portland for producing CP is one degree away from Epstein.

“You can never take truth tellers out because we tell the truth…especially now we have friends. Friends who aren’t the bad guys. Friends who are the good guys. And the good guys win! Read the book…it’s in the end”

“I think Q’s a pretty cool dude”

Jeffrey Epstein’s Zorro ranch is between Albuquerque and Santa Fe, and close to the Interstate Highway I-40 that happens to be the one Kappy died on. It’s about 390 mile drive (less than 6 hours) from Epstein’s ranch to Camp Navajo where Kappy forced himself off the bridge.

Epstein’s Zorro Ranch in Stanley, New Mexico features a giant occult labyrinth
There’s not another building near it for many, many miles. It seems hidden in the mountains. Are there tunnels there?
Ironically, the Zorro ranch is next to “Young Place”

In the first scope Fiona Barnett and Isaac Kappy did together in Australia, they specifically spoke about the Arizona National Guard (Camp Navajo) and two people Fiona had outed as FBI informants who also worked for the National Guard. They also called out Gabe Hoffman, Craig Sawyer, and Richard Branson.

Edited clip down to the relevant 3 minutes
Full interview for reference

Richard Branson’s island in the British Virgin Islands was rented several times for NXIVM events. It is not a huge distance from Jeffrey Epstein’s Little (and now Greater) St James Islands in the U.S. Virgin Islands, but they’re not exactly “next door to each other”. It’s the same area, in the same way that the Arizona-Mexico border is the same area.

Branson has just announced that he is moving his Virgin Galactic Spaceport to Truth or Consequences, New Mexico – also close to Epstein’s ranch.

@CoreysDigs has done some excellent work looking into Richard Branson and the Clintons’ activities in the Caribbean:


In another strange coincidence, Bellemont is just a couple of exits along I-40 from Seligman, pop 456. Martin Seligman was an MKULTRA torture specialist who came up with the concept of “learned helplessness”.


[Update May 18 2019 11:59am]

Isaac Kappy’s neighbor @truthofaflower has shared her story on Periscope, with a lot of important details. She says she doesn’t want to give out too much information because it’s a chess game. She mentioned the chess game a couple of times.

Kappy had been living with her female neighbor rent-free for a year, he didn’t lift a finger.

She says she saw him every day and did not think he did any drugs other than weed, alcohol and cigarettes. She saw him in the street on Thursday.

She saw a suspicious black car staking out their place around 9pm Friday night. Then he came back home Saturday then disappeared in a hurry.

She shows three places in Kappy’s apartment where it looks like someone punched the wall. Possibly signs of a struggle: surely the police should be investigating? Police are in touch with his ex-girlfriend Kate in Oregon. He left his computer behind but took his iPad. There didn’t seem to be any content of note on his computer, just a lot of head shots. I’ve asked on Twitter if we can get his browser history.

From his bank statements it shows he came home Saturday, gave away a bunch of stuff. When he went to visit Fiona he did the same thing, gave a bunch of stuff away to his friendly neighbors. He left California (definitely not Los Angeles or Norcal) Saturday in a rush with a lot of dark energy on him to go to Williams AZ (350 miles); Williams to Bellemont (23 miles); Bellemont to Kingsman (126 miles). Last transaction Sunday 5/13 authorization at check in to the Days Inn in Bellemont.

He went to a Love’s gas station twice, the first time $11 – probably to get cigarettes. The second time to put gas in the car, the amount was $6.66. Was Kappy trying to send a message? Apparently he did a Periscope or Instagram video from the car which has been deleted. People who saw it say someone else was driving, others say he was driving. He apparently had lost his license so should not have been driving, however the police did have a California license number that they called in. I’m not going to publish that but if @truthofaflower or his roommate or anyone else has a number for Kappy I could verify if it’s the same one.

She also said she and her boyfriend gave Kappy a book on how to disappear without a trace.

A New Low For Logos [UPDATE]

Jan Irvin is becoming increasingly unhinged. See:

Debunking Jan Irvin

Debunking Jan Irvin Part 2

His latest behavior is a new low, even for him.

He is now reporting his critics to the FBI. For some reason he has enough influence with this government agency that they are actually going to peoples’ homes to question them for criticizing Jan and to intimidate them into stopping.

Fortunately the person in question has a Ring doorbell which records video, so he was able to capture the whole interaction. The video and sound quality is less than ideal, but you get the gist:

Jan accuses everyone else of being a government agent, but this is a clear sign that he is at best an FBI informant, and at worst an active part of their modern-day COINTELPRO operations.

The person swatted says:

He was obviously playing the christian card. Those FBI people said that he told them that he runs a christian podcast show. I told them he only recently started to claim to be a christian. That when I first met him he claimed Jesus was a mushroom and never actually existed. Pretty sure I know exactly when Jan called them. Because Jan told me he was going to call them. It was when he was filling multiple copyright claims on my channel. I emailed Jan trying to get him to stop filling copyright claims on me. He said he won’t stop. I called him a little bitch that dishes it out by attacking others constantly, but cries like a bitch when people give him a taste of his own medicine. When he did get the channel taken down I told him you just guaranteed that I will now make more videos on you. And that’s when he said he’s calling the FBI on me. I said go ahead. Not thinking he actually would. What I did not tell the FBI and I wish I would have remembered, was that Jan accuses other people of being me. But lately he’s been accusing people that disagree with him of being Steve (Zos). What the whole thing reminded me of is how whoever calls the cops first is the side the cops tend to take. Clearly the FBI did not even google Jan Irvin. They new nothing about him except for what he told them. Had they just googled his name, I bet they would have never bothered me.

[UPDATE 5/12/19]

The victim of Jan’s FBI swatting cyber-attack has spoken out, under his more commonly known alias:



These days Jan insists that anyone who questions him is a “crypto-Islamic Neo-Nazi”. This is ridiculous prima facie, because neo-Nazis are associated with racism and white supremacy, not praying to Mohammed.

Jan now claims that the government story of 9/11 is true, and that Islam is to blame for the collapse of the three towers – not the neocons and “dancing Israelis”.

Jan Irvin has appeared on Alex Jones’ InfoWars 3 times this year. On his most recent appearance he called out “GDL”, the Goyim Defense League, saying that they call for violence against gays. Like most of these claims, Jan provides no citation for it.

Since I published my Debunking posts and video, many truthers have now moved to publicly distance themselves from Jan. Jesse Spots severed all ties:

Former collaborator Matthew North said Jesse summed up his opinion too:

On May 17th Matthew North did a video explaining his thoughts on Jan.

Adam Green called him a “turncoat”, “deceptive”, and “fraudulent”:

Not content with publicly humiliating his wife – then asking the audience to send him superchats because “I need a steak dinner after this” – Jan has threatened her with legal action in an attempt to steal research she began before she ever met him.

On his most recent show he doxxed Handsome Truth from the GDL:

Doxxing and calling in copyright strikes to censor critics is colloquially known as “Gay Ops” in the truther community. Jan tried it with me:

Unfortunately for Jan, when I began collaborating with him I asked him to sign a contract giving me the right to use any content I created with him. Clearly he is not a man of his word, and lacks the integrity to honor contracts he has signed. I challenged the strike and it was removed.

Others were not so lucky. Albert Bishai was banned from live streaming because of a copyright strike from Jan, for playing a video from the Activist News channel that included a clip of Jan:

Jan’s recent shows promoting the Talmud and Islamophobia have been very poorly received by his audience, judging by the Like:Dislike ratio.

Jan claims that the many dislikes are from “shills”, in his mind it is not possible that any genuine person could dislike his content. Even if that were true, it does not explain why there are so few Likes from videos with thousands of views on a channel with 66,000 subscribers. He was doing much better a couple of years ago with my content:

His shows with his (third) ex-wife Holly were also well received:

Jan Irvin insists that he is an advocate for free speech, yet deletes comments, blocks anyone who questions him, files copyright strikes, and snitches to the FBI. All these actions are the complete opposite of what he professes to stand for. If you live in Logos you can defend your ideas with evidence and logic – there is no need to attack the messenger and silence dissent.

What will be next for Jan? More FBI raids on anyone who questions his increasingly erratic claims? Surely Alex Jones cannot condone frequent guests on his show acting in this manner.

Jason Goodman, Religious Victim?

A few new developments in the case of Dave Sweigert and Robert David Steele vs Jason Goodman.

Dave Sweigert has his own lawsuit against Goodman in the Southern District of New York. He has also filed a Motion to Intervene as a co-Plaintiff in Robert David Steele’s lawsuit in the Eastern District of Virginia. He recently stated his intention to sue Jason Goodman in the state of California, where he has operated his business “21c3d” for many years.

Mr Goodman has asked the Court for an extension of time for his response to the Motion to Intervene, saying he is being persecuted for being Jewish.

If rats are anti-Semitic, then why is Jason posting hate speech to his Instagram account?

Specifically in his latest filing, Jason Goodman is claiming that Dave Sweigert has filed his motion to intervene maliciously, precisely co-ordinated with the sacrosanct Pesach (Passover) holiday.

Mr Goodman has used Passover as an excuse to ask the Court for an extension of time to file his response to the Motion to Intervene.

Unfortunately for Jason, he is representing himself pro se – without a lawyer. This means that it is important he reads all of the documents filed with the Court, in particular any Orders made by the Judge. If he had done this, he would have realized that the filing date was not set maliciously by Dave Sweigert to target him at Passover. Instead, it was set by Judge Hannah Lauck – who already gave the Defendants an extension of time from the original date of April 23 (during Passover) to May 1 (well after the end of Passover).

In the past Mr Goodman has said “I’m a secular Jewish guy, I’ve never been to Israel, I don’t have any particular affinity towards Israel…I don’t walk around wearing a yarmulke, I don’t frequently go to a synagogue, I have had a bar mtizvah and I do identify as being Jewish”:

This claim to be a non-practicing Jew is borne out by his behavior during this year’s Passover. Rather than attending synagogue and observing the holiday with family and friends (as he claimed under penalty of perjury), in fact he was very busy producing videos and slandering Dave Sweigert and others.

During the 8 days of Pesach he released 9 videos on YouTube and 15 on Patreon – an average of 3 videos per day. 9 of the videos were slandering Dave Sweigert. Jason Goodman also spent time making collages like the one below:

Mr Goodman just published a phone call he recorded with Queen Tut on April 3, 2019. It seems unusual that he has waited until now to release it. She confirmed that everything she said in her interview with me was true and accurate. The audio of this clip is strange – did Jason edit it? Perhaps re-recording his voice to sound more calm? Maybe this explains the publishing delay.

In a previous recorded call, Jason praised Queen Tut “who I consider a very competent researcher and a very honest person”:

Here is the email Jason was demanding:

The domain crowdsourcethetruth.org redirects to the Crowdsource the Truth Facebook page, which suggests that it is Jason Goodman’s domain. The WhoIs record lists 21st Century 3D of New York as the owner. So why did Jason pretend he never received this email?


Unfortunately for the Defendants, “this lawsuit is fake” is not likely to sway the Court into giving them a favorable outcome. With more than 100 documents filed so far, and multiple Judge’s Orders, it sure looks real to me.

Defendant Patricia Negron is certainly taking it seriously, she has hired a lawyer and filed all responses required of her by the due dates.

Do we really need Burning Man to be bigger? Longer lines at the Gate, Exodus and Porta-potties, more traffic on the way in…for what? Sure, it is tens of millions more dollars for the Org, but it’s not like they are using all that money to do anything of significance for the community. A few thousand gets handed out here and there, while millions get spent annually on internationally self-aggrandizement.

More people will be harder on the environment and the local community, that’s a simple fact.

So what’s in it for Burners?

Easier to get tickets if there are more of them – well the Org are saying ticket prices will have to increase $265, 62%. Demand is likely to still outstrip supply, the shitshow that is the ticket sale will just get bigger (and shittier).

More gifting? Great, it you can keep convincing new people to be participants and not tourists/consumers. Otherwise, it just means everyone will need to bring more gifts. Way more.

More hot chicks? Well, there’s something to be said for that!


BMorg recently posted at their blog “Fact Checking BLM”

Here is a local response, “reviewing Burning Man’s fact checking BLM”

Burning Man’s “Fact Checking BLM” is short on fact checking and long on opinion replete with unsupported allegations, overstatements, and misstatements lacking in factual support. However BRC continues with its use of hyperbole right from the start of their rapidly crafted response. BRC relies heavily on volunteer labor to support and then credits erroneously that (BRC) pays for EVERYTHING. Reviewing the Draft EIS there is no supporting the statement. “Fact Checking BLM” is rife with complaints of increasing BRC’s costs, while ignoring the cost to the Communities that are adversely impacted or “volunteered” to clean up after Burning Man. Ignoring the Anti-Environmental impacts of the party or “this thing we have in the desert” using copious amounts of fossil fuels for visual indulgences and creature comforts not including the “…, increased greenhouse gas emissions from hundreds of flatbed trucks transporting large, heavy loads, and increased fuel consumption” to create a Brigadoon on the Playa.   BRC seems to be oblivious of its vulnerability to acts of Domestic Terrorism and the detrimental effect to the importation of illegal drugs and newly created criminals in the County where the event is held, both unwilling to address and unable to confront these issues. BRC’s only identified effort for crime reduction has been stated as “having a Radio Station and Newspaper” is clearly ineffective.   As is a plastic “trash fence” to insure security from the numerous media covered Mass casualty tragedies that can act as inspiration for both Domestic and International Terrorists either group or Lone Wolf.

There are 5 scenarios being discussed:

  • A – increase population to 100,000 participants by 2022
  • B – reduce population to 50,000
  • C – move the event to the North, still in Pershing; grow to 100,000
  • D – stay the same, 80,000 max population
  • E – deny Burning Man its Special Recreation Permit

The deadline for comment submissions is April 29, 2019.


It seems even the local Sheriff – no fan of Burning Man, at all – thinks the Feds are going too far with their proposed private contractor security searches of vehicles for drugs and guns.

From the Lovelock Review-Miner:

BLM suggests dumpsters, universal vehicle searches at Burning Man

Debra Reid, News4Nevada
  Wednesday, April 17, 2019 1:00 AM

Last week’s Lovelock public hearing on the Bureau of Land Management’s Draft EIS for Burning Man’s ten year Special Recreation Permit attracted plenty of local interest. The comment deadline is April 29 with the Final EIS expected this summer before the event starts August 25.

The Lovelock audience was quiet compared to the reportedly raucous, standing-room only crowd at the Sparks Nugget the night before. Some local leaders,however, later shared strong opinions of the BLM’s Draft EIS, proposed mitigations and five alternative plans for the event.

In a rare agreement with festival organizers, Pershing County Sheriff Jerry Allen told the Lovelock crowd that the BLM’s proposed security searches of all vehicles for illegal drugs and firearms might not provide the required probable cause and therefore could be unconstitutional.

Pershing County Commission Chairman Larry Rackley, who is not a fan of the festival, later said he agreed with Sheriff Allen’s assessment of blanket searches of all vehicles entering the event.

“As far as entry searches, I agree with Jerry that this is going a bit far,” Rackley said in an email.

Rackley also opposes the proposal for trash dumpsters and heavy concrete barriers on the playa due to the impacts on an aging county road. He also opposes Alternative A that would allow the festival to grow from 80,000 to 100,000 participants as proposed by event organizers.

“I do not agree with the concrete barriers because of the weight, in and out, on the road,” Rackley said in the email. “Burning Man of course does not contribute to road maintenance or repair. I do not agree with expansion of the population for the same reason. BRC (Black Rock City) does not pay their way and takes advantage of Pershing County.” 

Rackley also criticized a BRC official who said law enforcement contributes to the trash.

“In the BRC response to this by Marnee Benson, she spoke about the loss of business to others who pick up the burner trash and included the statement that law enforcement contributed to the trash,” he said. “Really? And then they (BRC) wonder why people feel the way they do about them. She often speaks on items or makes statements to make others look bad and Burning Man look like they are better than others.”

Lovelock resident and longtime Burning Man critic David Skelton said he spoke up at the Lovelock hearing. Contrary to an earlier news report, he estimated the crowd at about 90 people. He decided to share his concerns after feedback from a Burning Man participant.

“I spoke due to the efforts of a Burner that I had talked with at the meeting that felt our local issues should be heard,” Skelton said in an email.

Skelton said he supports the BLM’s proposal for dumpsters on the playa and “concrete barriers-terrorist-vehicle-barriers” surrounding the event perimeter. And, he “ABSOLUTELY” supports the agency’s proposal to search all incoming vehicles for illegal drugs and firearms.

As for the BLM’s five alternative plans for the event, Skelton said he supports “E then B.” Plan E would deny the Special Recreation Permit. Plan B would cap the event at 50,000 participants. 

“Burning Man costs Pershing County per the Draft EIS. There is no economic benefit,” he said. “Burning Man has created by their own actions a hostile relationship with Pershing County resulting in the current condition. If Burning Man left, there would be no adverse effect (for Pershing County). Instead, there would be a cost savings benefit.”

Alternative A would allow the event to grow to 100,000 participants by 2022. Alternative C would move the event to the north but it would stay in Pershing County and attendance would climb to 100,00 people. Alternative D would maintain the current population at 80,000 participants.

The BLM document confirms Sheriff Allen’s ongoing assertion that the festival impacts public safety throughout the region. If BLM allows the festival to grow, public safety services could be stretched beyond capacity especially when there’s a major emergency such as a large wildfire.

“First responder resources, including fire, emergency medical services and law enforcement, are drawn down during the event as personnel from across northern Nevada support the event,” states the Draft EIS. “Communities across northern Nevada are left with reduced emergency services staff, particularly in Pershing County.”

In the BLM analysis of Alternative A, the proposed festival population of 100,000 participants “would require an increase in law enforcement to approximately 50 percent of all BLM law enforcement nationwide reducing the BLM’s ability to execute other agency missions.”

“Additionally, this increase would negatively affect public health and safety in Pershing County as a whole due to a drawdown on first responders available to the remainder of the county.”

The BLM outlined environmental concerns with an expanded population including increased debris left on the playa despite intensive annual cleanup efforts by BRC after the festival.

“An event population of 100,000 would likely expose the public and environment to solid waste. Despite being based on Leave No Trace Principles, a time series analysis from 2006 through 2018 (Hall and Rorex 2018) for the City Grid indicates that there is a trend of increasing debris and litter left behind each year of the event.”

The BLM document reveals other public health concerns on the dark side of Burning Man.

“The ‘gifting culture’ of the event results in participants accepting items from other participants, potentially ingesting substances unknown to them,” states the Draft EIS. “Participants who believe they are ingesting one substance, only to find out they have ingested something completely different, could overdose. Foods, such as dried apricots and breath mints laced with illicit substances, have been located at the event. In addition, law enforcement responds to combative or assaultive subject calls due to illegal controlled substance abuse.”

BRC claims the BLM’s proposed mitigations threaten the festival’s future and would force tickets prices to increase by about $286. The “main” ticket price for this year’s event was $425. BRC asked Burners to send comments to BLM “if you fundamentally oppose this draconian response by the BLM to a peaceful, responsible, recreational steward of public lands.”  

“If you feel strongly that concrete or plastic barriers at the fence line would impact your experience at the Burning Man event, that Leave No Trace is an important principle for you and the culture to continue to embody, or that new search and seizure operations by BLM’s private security company would be problematic, leading to increased wait times, traffic and civil rights violations, we strongly encourage you to formally submit a comment to BLM.”


One proposed solution to helping the local community bear the year-round social, environmental, and budgetary costs of a 30% larger Black Rock City is to enforce the existing room tax for motels and camgrounds on people staying in motorhomes.
