“Alex Jones” hosts The Alex Jones Show and is a well-known conspiracy theorist. He also is associated with several prominent websites including Infowars, NewsWars, and PrisonPlanet.

-

Over the years, Jones has been at the heart of a plethora of controversial claims associated with the Oklahoma City bombings, the 1969 Moon landings, September 11th attacks, Bohemian Grove, and Sandy Hook (among others).

-

Jones’ unique presentation style distinguishes him from other radio show hosts. His ability to get “fired up”, scream “truth”, frantically shake while violently yelling, tear his shirt off, and in general speak with extreme passion, is unprecedented.

-

Alex Jones has been cancelled (or “de-platformed”) by the majority of online platforms including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Stitcher, Apple Podcasts, among many others. He also was involved in several legal battles for some of his claims.

-

Herein, we outline the career of Alex Jones (in a nutshell) up to present day, discuss some of the major claims he has been associated with, reflect on his presentation style, and attempt to better understand freedom of speech.

“Rebecca Zahau” was found hanging – her hands and feet bound by red rope, mouth gagged, and completely nude – over a balcony at Spreckels Mansion in Coronado California on July 13, 2011.
-
Her case is nuanced, complex, and full of unanswered questions.
-
Two days before her bizarre death, Max Shacknai (Rebecca’s boyfriend’s son) suffered a serious accident under Zahau’s care, and later passed away on July 16, 2011. Max was not biologically related to Rebecca, but was the 6-year old child of Jonah Shacknai (Rebecca’s boyfriend) and Dina Romano (Jonah’s ex-wife).
-
Clearly, motive for murder could be argued given the circumstances, but also suicide, given the level of guilt Rebecca MAY have been under (if she played role in Max’s accident).
-
Jonah Shacknai’s brother, Adam, was staying in the Spreckels Mansion’s guesthouse during the period Rebecca died, and as a result was a prime suspect in the case. He proclaims innocence to this day.
-
Furthermore, a crazy cryptic message reading “she saved him, can you save her”, was painted in black on the door of the room Rebecca was hanging out of. Jonah Shacknai (her boyfriend) was also rich af.
-
Herein, we lay out the events that transpired, outline the evidence associated with Rebecca Zahau’s case, provide evidence for and against various theories, and then close with our own personal takes on the case. Was it murder? Was it suicide? Was it ritual magic?

The “Philadelphia Experiment” was allegedly a military project involving the USS Eldridge DE-173 destroyer, in which invisibility cloaking, teleportation of the vessel, and other uncanny events occurred.

-

In 1955, Morris K. Jessup (an author, astronomer, and ufologist) received letters from Carlos M. Allen, who claimed he witnessed bizarre secret military operations during WWII at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard. These claims were not corroborated at the time, but the plot thickened in 1957…

-

In 1957, the Office of Naval Research received a peculiar, annotated version of one of Morris K. Jessup’s books from an anonymous source, and contacted Jessup. Jessup’s book, “The Case for the UFO”, had strange notes written throughout it that alleged strange claims relating to the Philadelphia Experiment and advanced technology. The notes in the margins, appeared to be written by extraterrestrials…

-

Morris K. Jessup later ends up suspiciously dead (ruled a suicide…) after arranging to discuss a “breakthrough” relating to the Philadelphia Experiment in 1959.

-

Herein, we discuss the claims associated with the Philadelphia Experiment, Einstein’s theories and how they relate to the claims, the history of Morris K. Jessup, Carlos M. Allen, and the Office of Naval Research, and alternative explanations that may explain these events.

“Tarrare” was a French showman and soldier who lived in the late 1700’s and was renowned for his insatiable appetite and bizarre consumption of various creatures.

-

Tarrare could eat meals fit for fifteen people to himself all at once, dabbled with the consumption of snakes, lizards, live cats and puppies, and was also allegedly suspected of even eating a toddler.

-

Despite crushing absolutely everything he could find, Tarrare was slim, weighing only approximately 100 pounds. To date, although there is documentation of many individuals with eating disorders resembling Tarrare, no other case study approaches the same extreme EXTENT of Tarrare.

-

Old medical records outlining Tarrare’s uncanny case study were written by Dr. Baron Percy in “Memoirs of a Polyphage”.

-

Herein, we discuss the historical accounts of Tarrare, his involvement as a specialized secret message carrier in the French Revolutionary Army, his ridiculous feats of consumption, and speculate on what disorder(s) Tarrare may have had based on modern day knowledge.
