We have come under attack by a gang of trolls, some of whom appear to be tied to the Department of Defense. See Debunking Jan Irvin, Debunking Jan Irvin Part 2, Debunking Douglas Dietrich for details.

The Dudermensch has created this great highlight reel from the series:

This Series began airing on Jan Irvin’s Gnostic Media channel 24 April 2016 – see Can Radical Inclusion Handle the Truth? Welcome to Shadow History. The last episode was presented while Burning Man was opening in August 2017. More than four years of full-time research went into the view of history presented here.

Part 5 was so long we split it into 2. So I call it a 7.5 part series. If you only want a little bit to get started try hour 2 & 3 of Part 7.

Part 1: Silicon Valley

Part 2: PSYOP and The Presidio

Part 3: Satan’s Birthday Party

Part 4: Occult Rituals of the Cult

Part 5a: Burning With The Man

Part 5b: Burning With The Man
