Ancient Civilizations, The Sphinx & Egyptology's Resistance to Alternative Theories with Dr. Robert Schoch

Dr. Robert Schoch is best known for his research and claims regarding the Great Sphinx of Giza – like the pyramids of Giza, many of us take the Sphinx and its history for granted. That is, we assume we know the basics:  it’s in Egypt; it has the body of a lion and the head of a man; and it was built by the ancient Egyptians of the Old Kingdom. However, what Dr. Schoch and his colleagues propose is a rather different theory, suggesting that the Sphinx is likely far older than we have always believed it to be, therefore meaning it must have been created under different conditions and by different people than originally assumed. The journey of his research is absolutely fascinating, and we were excited to pick his brains on this topic.

"The Art of Death and The Beauty of Life" - An Interview with James Picard

We recently had another amazing opportunity to interview the great artist, James Picard, this time in private and with plenty of time, allowing us to really dive into his creative mind and his incredible works. The outcome was an in-depth interview about his life, his inspirations, and his art, which eventually turned into an accompaniment to his award-winning and critically-acclaimed documentary, The Dark & The Wounded, recently premiered alongside this main film at the VIP screening in Vancouver, Canada (this May, 2018). We are incredibly grateful to be involved in the world of Picard, and aim to spread the word as much as possible about this inspirational artist. For all those that have not heard of him yet, we sincerely hope that this interview will pique your interest, and perhaps encourage you to check out his The Dark & The Wounded movie, as well as his art in general. Oh, and if you happen to be in Cannes for the film festival this year (2018), then be sure to keep an eye out for Picard and the documentary!

"Mantra: Sounds into Silence" -- A Beautiful Breath of Fresh Air Into Our Stagnant Mental Climate

Mantra: Sounds into Silence is an inspirational documentary, there is no doubt about that. Whether this is your spiritual cup-of-tea or not, it’s still certainly an insightful and interesting movie, and something that we can all learn from.

The documentary walks you through the various back-stories of the people that were guided towards this type of lifestyle and meditation. It is deeply entwined with yoga (different types, e.g. Kundalini Yoga, Bhakti Yoga), and all of these people appear to have self-reflected and realised that there was something missing in their lives. This void was filled by mantras and the spiritual lifestyle that came with it.

Stairway To Heaven? The Power of Marrying Magick & Music: An Interview with Lance Gilbert, Author of “The Led Zeppelin Curse”

What do a lonely Scottish manor at the edge of Loch Ness, a notorious occultist and ceremonial magician, and possibly the most influential rock band ever, have in common? Apparently, quite a bit. Jimmy Page has never been subtle about his fascination with the dark and mysterious, and though many Led Zeppelin fans believe that the band’s involvement with anything occult-related went only so far as being a stage show, there is likely to be more than meets the eye. Lance Gilbert, author of, “The Led Zeppelin Curse: Jimmy Page and the Haunted Boleskine House,” is here on West of The Rockies to enlighten us a little about the link between Led Zeppelin and the world of magickand rituals, through his thorough research, as well as personal experiences.

Follow The Yellow Brick Road: The Tragedy of Another Disposable Mind-Control Victim // Interview #2 with John S Captain on the Murder of Tiffany Jenks

It has been over four years since the death of Tiffany Jenks (35) in Portland, Oregon, but the wounds of injustice still remain to be healed. John S Captain, Tiffany’s former boyfriend and, as she herself put it, “soulmate,” is back on West of The Rockies to answer some of our questions and give us the latest on this never-ending quest for truth and justice.

Are WiFi Waves The Cigarettes of Our Time? The Dangers of EMF with Jesus Mendoza

It’s been a question that has been floating around for years now, and only occasionally sees coverage in mainstream news and media: how bad are WiFi signals really? We’ve heard horror stories, of course — when it comes to EMF, there is not lack of them. People who have worked as air traffic controllers showing higher occurrences of cancer;  “leaking” microwaves making people ill; keeping your phone in your pocket making you infertile. We all know the drill at this point. Generally, it’s fair to say, WiFi waves have been seen as a negative thing for a while now.

Demons in Alien's Clothing

As we enter the 21st century and a new millenium, Satan has devised the delusion that mankind is entering into an important evolutionary phase - a New Age. The push for "global enlightenment" has now extended to the vast reaches of the universe, into what could be deemed as a "space" religion. However, once this nebulous veil is lifted, a definite correlation emerges between the UFO/Alien phenomenon and occultic/satanic activity.

UFOs, Sandman & Beckoning Highways: The Mysterious Music & Disappearance of Jim Sullivan // with Matt of Light in The Attic Records

Probably one of the greatest mysteries of the music world, the story of Jim Sullivan remains just as fascinating and baffling as it was back in 1975. On this edition of the show (a classic that we've dug up from a few years ago) we have the pleasure of speaking to Matt Sullivan (strangely enough, absolutely no blood-relation to Jim Sullivan), who is the founder and co-owner of Light In The Attic Records. LITA Records saw its first seeds sewn in a little basement apartment in Fremont, Seattle, back in 2001, and has since provided us with some fantastic re-issued gems by artists such as Sixto Rodriguez (whose fame blew up with the Oscar-winning movie, Searching For Sugarman); produced enlightening documentaries such as Wheedle’s Groove; and pushed our boundaries of traditional music by presenting us with releases such as the Native North American Archival series. Jim Sullivan was one of the “long lost gem” discoveries by LITA.

James Picard's "The Dark and The Wounded" Wins Grand Prize at New Media Film Festival

It’s always difficult to describe Picard and his abilities in mere words to someone who has never heard of him; it’s possibly equally difficult describing him by means of examples. One lonely specimen of a painting/sculpture could in no way fully represent his skill-set. Heck, not even ten or twenty.

Catching Up with Contact In The Desert 2017: A Weekend of Otherworldly Exploration

Contact In The Desert. To call it a “UFO Convention” would in no way do it justice, nor would it be accurate. I generally find myself a bit stuck trying to find the right words to describe this annual event to my friends and family. Sometimes these types of gatherings are called “consciousness expanding” conferences, or words to that effect. But then again, it’s more than that. Their own website describes the event as “An EPIC weekend of exploration into extraterrestrial life, ancient aliens, human origins, secret space program, crop circles, UFO sightings, contact experiences, interstellar living, and the “need to know”.” So we’ll go with that for now.

Communicating With The Dead: An Interview with Author & Researcher, Jeff Belanger

Jeff Belanger always manages to be spectacularly upbeat and positive about something that, for most people, is quite a negative topic: death. Few have been as productive and valuable in the paranormal and spirit-communicating scene as Jeff has. Not only is he the Emmy-nominated host, writer, and producer of the New England Legends on PBS, he is also the writer and researcher for the Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventures, and the host of the widely popular Web and cable talk-show 30 Odd Minutes. He has writtensixteen books to date, all revolving around the mysterious, the paranormal, and the supernatural, ranging from haunted locations and spirit communication, to the Bermuda Triangle, UFO investigating, and even experiences such as climbing Mount Everest.

Our Life Beyond MKULTRA: Lies, Corruption and Love, An Interview with Elisa E.

“You have to understand that the alters…like my front-line system was amazing…all those years I worked and had a so-called normal life parallel to the other life.”
— Elisa E., interview extract

We are extremely grateful to have had Elisa E. back on the show, one of the best sources of information on the world of mind-control that anyone could hope for. A survivor of trauma-based mind-control herself, her ability to reflect on her experiences succinctly and coherently is definitely a gift to anyone researching this subject-matter and hoping to find out more.

Again, we do not claim that what we are talking about is the absolute truth, since that’s something we ourselves do not know. Our primary aim is always to inform – we intend to provide a platform for people to speak from; to listen carefully and analytically; and to intellectually engage with our guests. At times, suspension of doubt is required, but that is indeed the only way that a fully-informed opinion can be reached. Those that are unable to give a theory or a proposed idea the “benefit of the doubt,” even just for a moment, tend to be those that go through life monochromatically and unenlightened.

That said, we broach a number of topics and ideas during this WoTR episode, delving just a little deeper into the world of trauma-based mind-control. We focus more on Book 2 of Our Life Beyond MKULTRA this time round, since our first interview was based on Book 1. Nevertheless, we still recap a little of Book 1, providing both a foundation for the show, as well as a neat introduction for those who have not yet read Elisa’s books.

“If each and every person on earth began to form a conscious relationship with this Unconditional Love that resides within their Benevolent human soul, and obtained or made orgone generators (negative ion generators), malevolent kontrol would be banished as long as we each maintain. No war, no violence, just pure Love and Life.”
— Our Life Beyond MKULTRA, Book 2

What you have to remember is that Elisa does not claim that x, y and z, happened per se. At least not in every instance when she is recounting a bizarre story. For instance, take her various encounters with “aliens” or strange extra-terrestrial beings – she describes her memories as she recalls them, as she thought they happened. However, she fully admits that, when she recalls those various instances, they may not, in fact, have gone down as she believes them to have gone down. She admits that they may be screen memories, at least on some of those many occasions, perhaps implanted by someone else, or at times even self-induced due to the unbearable trauma that they are probably concealing. Alas, this is at the very core of trauma-based mind-control: traumatising and psychologically beating down the victim to the point of being able to fully reshape them mentally. It sounds absolutely horrific, almost unimaginable that one human could do this to another; unfortunately, that also explains why most people probably don’t want to believe in things like this. (As for the human aspect, whether these people are “fully” human or not is a whole topic in itself). Elisa explains how, a lot of the time, she doesn’t know which memories are “real” and which are screen memories – she is completely aware of that, and merely aims to inform us of the memories she does have. How we process that information is up to us.

Perhaps things can indeed get a little confusing when talk of “entities,” “demons,” “aliens, and “beings,” starts becoming heavier. However, bear in mind that this “strange” talk of inter-dimensional beings and seemingly “super-natural” abilities occurs a lot in MKULTRA/mind-control talk. For that reason, it may be useful for some of our listeners to do a bit of their own research, or even read a book or two themselves. We recommend maybe picking up one of Elisa E’s Top 4 Mind-Control Books or Elisa E’s Top 5 Mind-Control Films, which can be found at the bottom of this article here. Otherwise, one of Elisa’s own books, which we can never recommend enough. Be warned though, it does get heavy at times. Fascinating, nevertheless.

She is always “on it,” responding to our questions succinctly and allowing herself time to think where it is necessary – we definitely do not get the vibe that her answers are rehearsed in any way. She makes incredibly astute comments on our shows (often emailing in regarding our other interviews), displaying signs of an intelligent and analytical mind. I think it’s important to have this background knowledge of her when judging her narrative.

“Most people in the conspiracy community generally agree that the world I come from is 50 to 100 years ahead technologically”
— Elisa E., interview extract

And yes, of course she could be duping us, of course there exists the possibility that she may be a psychopath doing this for fun, or even a disinformant – alas, in this line of journalism, those are thoughts that should go without saying, and we are certainly not oblivious to the more nefarious possibilities. But, having researched these themes for the few years that we have, and having come in contact with plenty of people in the MK circles, we are still happy to stand by our opinion that Elisa E is, undoubtedly, one of the most convincing and (more importantly) trustworthy whistleblowers out there. Thus far, she has not given us reason to doubt her, and I believe that’s important to point out. In fact, it’s extremely rare in cases such as this.

We sincerely hope you enjoy listening to this interview as much as it was fascinating for us to conduct. We talk about societal conditioning, and the difference between programming and conditioning; inter-dimensional and non-human entities; esoteric sciences; interconnections with movies, including how the recent film Split may help us understand a fragmented mind; if and how one might spot a mind-controlled person; and what it actually means to be a “high-level bloodline ritually abused trauma-based total mind controlled slave.” We also briefly explore how some of the seemingly superhuman abilities of mind-controlled slaves may be scientifically feasible, such as breathing under water. Yes, it absolutely sounds too weird to be true, but science is slowly revealing things that we had previously thought impossible. In fact, isn’t that what every paradigm-shift does? Shift the very foundations of our beliefs and views of reality? Check out this article on the so-called “Aquaman Crystal”. And if we take into account that real technology (we’re talking underground government research here) is probably decades ahead of what the mainstream is selling us, it becomes a little easier to believe that some of this crazy technology may well be real, and in use right now, albeit unbeknownst to us.

A couple of great links for further education on this topic: Mind Control Simple To Complex & Alters and Triggers.

You can order Elisa E.'s book here: Our Life Beyond MKULTRA Book 1 and Book 2.

And, if you’re brave enough to tackle, "The Illuminati Formula to Create an Undetectable Total Mind Control Slave” (By Fritz Springmeier & Cisco Wheeler), though please bear in mind that it is slightly dated at this point.

We find Elisa E’s story extremely compelling, and we continue to support her. Whatever it is that is happening to all these people, we hope that you will at least acknowledge that it is something. When so many people are coming out with the same stories over and over again (a quick google search will tell you that much), it becomes increasingly difficult to ignore this phenomenon.

Now for the interview, enjoy!
