Penthouse Forum

Does anyone here remember Penthouse magazine and the reader’s letters section, Penthouse Forum? I’ll cop to reading these phony baloney letters when I was (very) much younger- Anyway, these letters invariably began with “I don’t usually do this…” as a way of gaining trust in the reader that the letter in question was written by a genuine person, not a staff writer- At the pivot point of the sexy story/confession, the phrase “Needless to say…” was always employed, as the “writer” cops to his/her own temptation and describes some outré behavior that was deemed shocking forty plus years ago-

Well, needless to say, when I saw these two phrases pop up in an email sent to Miles Mathis by a reader, which MM published as an addendum to his Lennon paper, the alarms went off- There are two emails he’s posted in the addendum, the first being a literary hand job to Miles’ greatness, which, on many occasions, I would concur- Um, the greatness, not the, um… The second email is from “Kyle” who informs Miles immediately that he doesn’t usually do this (What, I don’t know- Send emails?) but then Kyle proceeds to disperse conspiracy candy corn with a shovel- Please read the litany of clues Kyle has listed and agree that Let Him Be is indeed a psy-operetta concocted by the same bureau that has been maintaining The Beatles operation lo these many years (Wait for it…. MASONS!)- Also please note that the email, with Miles’ assent, buttresses the “self-evident” nature of the character labeled John Lennon and his singular integrity as an historic artist-

Too Many People? On the Viability of Conspiratorial Beliefs

We’ve all heard it: “That can’t possibly be true—too many people would have to be involved. Somebody would have spilled the beans by now.” In fact, that is usually the first reaction I hear from people I’ve tried to enlighten about topics such as 9/11. It’s almost like a knee-jerk reflex, and it’s apparently enough to stop them from even considering any conspiracy theory further.

This objection has become all the more relevant in light of some of the recent discoveries made on this blog. For example, if so many celebrities are indeed twins, how is it possible that we haven’t heard about it? Wouldn’t hundreds or thousands of people working in the entertainment industry know about this? And what about all the paparazzi?  So how come nobody has come forward?

The “too many people” objection got a major boost in January with the publication of a paper by physicist David Grimes, entitled, “On the Viability of Conspiratorial Beliefs.Massive media coverage followed, touting his magic formula that “proved” once and for all that conspiracies were bound to fail. (To get a sense of this coverage, just type the following search terms into google: large-scale conspiracies reveal.) “Ah, those conspiracy theorists! Can’t they see it’s impossible? This was written by a physicist at Oxford University and published in a peer-reviewed journal. What more proof do you need?”

I’m here to show you that the paper actually proves the exact opposite of what we are told. That’s right, I’m telling you that the paper actually supports the viability of large-scale conspiracies. I also want to offer a few more words about the “too many people” response. But first, a bit about the author of the paper and the journal it was published in. Continue reading

More fake family photos and unusual resemblances


The above photo is the Joplin family. Judging by hair styles, I would guess it to have been taken in the early 1960s, except for “Janis,” of course. She is dressed in a manner that would be more common in the mid-to-late sixties. She has been pasted in to the photo much in the same manner as John Denver in the Deutschendorf family photo in the previous post. With Denver, it was his head on someone else’s body, but in this instance they have superimposed the entire body of Janis over someone else. Otherwise the photo would make no sense. It would be of four people and an empty space. (The sharp lines on Janis, the odd black space between inner left arm and torso are the giveaway, in addition to manner of dress.)

I suggest that Janis Joplin, a set of twins by the way, was given a back story, that her name was not Joplin, that this was not her family, and that in her current Zombie state, her name is also not “Amy Goodman.”

A whole new world …


Commenter lux brought us the above photograph, said to be of singer John Denver and his family. In my piece on the fake death of Denver, I did not think to go back into his childhood. It was a classic mistake, assuming things to be as we are told they are without examination. Assumptions kill.

In the photo are, left to right, Henry John Deutschendorf Jr. (Denver), Ron and mother and father, Irma and John Sr. The photo is fake. Not only is the lighting on Denver’s face wrong, his head is too big, perhaps a third again that of his brother. He does not resemble anyone. It led us to suspect that John Denver was not the son of Irma and Henry John Deutschendorf Sr., or the brother of Ron. Further evidence is that Ron has a son, Henry John Deutschendorf II, which would actually be Denver’s place in the family if he was really part of it.

The question that naturally follows is “Why is this faked photo there?” Then follows “Who was this guy, John Denver, really?”, and “Does this same sort of fraud happen with other performers?”, and, of course, the natural end product that leads to yet newer and more fascinating discoveries,”Why?”

There is more in store here, more discoveries to unfold. Stay tuned. We are currently six writers, and I doubt any of us knows the future. We have only our brains and imaginations.

The Curious Case of Lindsay Lohan

One trend I’ve been noticing with many of the twins, particularly the most famous ones, is that there always seems to be some sort of mention of twins, usually in a tongue-in-cheek manner.

Mark already noted the “photoshopped” images of the Drake and Rihanna twins, then there is Justin Timberlake’s “secret half brother” and the Jennifer Lawrence twin sister sketch.

So it’s not a surprise that there are similar stores regarding Hollywood party girl/hot mess Lindsay Lohan seeing that when she was a child she starred in the remake of The Parent Trap.

The Fresh Princes

Straight and I worked on this one and I have run all the photos by him so he can examine the angular distortions. He gave it a pass, that is, in the matter of ears, the differences between the Will Smith twins are real and not caused by head and camera angles.

On July 23 of this year I put up a post, part of which was about the unusual ears of Will Smith. We have learned so much since. At that time, just glancing at Smith, it was apparent that in some photos his ears were very high, and in others much lower. I concluded:

“…there is no doubt that we are looking at the same man in both images. But look at the ear height! Smith has been surgically enhanced, his ears lowered. And honestly, it’s a good move, as it makes him look more like a leading man.”

It has been in the back of my mind for some time now that Will is far more likely a candidate for the Honor Roll of Twins, and indeed that is the case. His Wiki page says he has younger siblings who are twins, but we don’t know from Wiki if that is his true family. Further, if real, the younger twins could be merely a way to nest his twin brother, to hide in plain view.

Election speculation

Though we don’t dwell on it here, we realize that many people are preoccupied with political contests. I am no psychic, and have not understood until recently how it is going to shake out. But seeing now what will happen in twenty days makes it a little easier to understand what came before.

Bernie Sanders we have long understood to be a sheepdog. His job was to keep progressives interested in the political process. They allowed him to tail Hillary closely, even throwing the Michigan primary for him, before giving all his energy over to her.  Hillary was to be the Democratic nominee from the start.

Trump is a little more difficult to understand, as he is a terrible candidate, and would even lose in a real contest. He was put in place because Hillary is so undesirable, so un-electable, that the only way to make her ascension to the office seem natural was to run her against a candidate worse than her. That is why they chose Trump.

Hillary was selected to be on the Senate Watergate Committee at age 27 in 1973, having no qualifications, in fact having just flunked the DC bar exam. This is a sign of a rising star, to never be allowed to fail even when she fails. She was a chosen one, as was her future husband, Bill, whom she was sent to Arkansas to marry after leaving  the Watergate Committee.

Both she and Bill are most likely gay. It was a marriage of convenience from the start, and is to this day. Bill’s many affairs are both the stuff of legend, and misdirection. If they can keep the partisans asking the wrong questions, then the answers do not matter.

John Denver’s death: Another hoax

[Note: See footnotes dated 10/20/2016 and 10/25/16.]

When you ask how I’ve been here without you,
I like to say I’ve been fine, and I do.
But we both know the truth is hard to come by.
And if I told the truth, that’s not quite true.
(Some Days Are Diamonds, by Dick Feller, Performed by John Denver)

memorialThe National Transportation Safety Board on January 26 1999 held a public meeting regarding the 10/12/97 death of singer John Denver, real name Henry John Deutschendorf, Jr. I called NTSB earlier this summer to get hold of a copy of that report, only to be told that they have no record of it. I did find it, eventually, in the Wayback Machine.

That’s odd, NTSB missing a report on one of the most high-profile plane crashes in recent memory. But it makes sense from another standpoint: If the death was faked, and if higher powers were involved, then people of integrity at NTSB might simply want to back away from it. They would not want their careers or character sullied by such an affair of deceit. So they allow the report to circulate, but do not claim ownership.

Here at this blog we do a lot of research of fake deaths, and on the surface, Denver’s had all the earmarks. He died at an appropriate age (53, 5+3 = 8, Spook marker*), and the circumstances of his death are completely hinky. He is said to have been struggling with the fuel tank switch in his Long EZ, a second-hand home-assembled model he bought and flew even as he could easily afford something new, something factory built. It doesn’t read well. Denver, a smart man and accomplished pilot with hundreds of hours of flight time, was not going to perish in an act of idiocy.

Other markers of fake death are present as well. Denver’s once-prolific output had dwindled, his more current offerings were just not very good. As with Elvis, Karen Carpenter, John Lennon and most recently Prince, faking death is a business decision that maximizes the monetary value of the body of work. Denver’s Greatest Hits, along with his cutting room debris, have all been repackaged and resold to the tune of millions of dollars, as with the others who fake their deaths.

I’ve been working on this issue for months now, off and on, and am convinced now that John Denver did not die that day. Too many things are wrong with the picture. And yet, I don’t think I will ever be able to prove beyond reasonable doubt that he didn’t. While the people who planned the charade were sloppy and while the whole day of his death seems a cheap and contrived detective novel, there is enough “evidence” to keep the myth alive. There is a fingerprint match, probably facilitated by Monterey Sheriff Norman G. Hicks, and the absence of two toes on the corpse, said to be a link to the real Denver, but probably contrived and circular. While I cannot disprove these two pieces of evidence, I will cast doubt.

Was the Mavi Marmara Incident a Hoax?

The Mavi Marmara was a ship that led the 2010 attempt to break the Israeli blockage/stranglehold on Gaza. The ship was raided by Israeli commandos who were attacked by the passengers. Several passengers were shot, some died. Here is the Wikipedia page on the raid.

We are led to believe all these events are real. However the Israelis say their commandos were attacked and were defending themselves. The protesters say they were brutally attacked by the commandos after offering no resistance. But what if the event never happened? Continue reading

Fun with photo analysis

I have planned for some time now to do an exposé about Jim Morrison, lead singer of the Doors who faked his death in 1971. We have already found his girlfriend, Pamela Courson here. It turns out she became a late-inning replacement for Barbara Walters.

Jim we have not located. I do know that before his fake death, he was body-doubled. So he was somewhere else when he died. I don’t think he has reappeared. I could be easily surprised. However, I think we can have more fun with this matter if we take another angle.

While at the Miles Mathis conference last summer. I brought up the matter of the photo below:


Those are the three children of Clara and Rear Admiral George Stephen Morrison. They are, left to right, Anne, Jim and Andrew. And Jim is indeed the “Jim Morrison” we knew. Make no mistake about that.

Miles looked at this photo on my IPad and I instantly saw a light go on behind his eyes. It is fake. He took it and passed it around the room for everyone to view, and then after our input, gave his own view of what is wrong with the photo.

I could pass all that along to you, but am not going to. We do a lot of work here with photos, but speaking for myself, my naked-eye work is not anywhere near the caliber of Mathis’s. So I thought this might be fun – just to lay out some photos, and let readers judge whether they are real, of if fake, what is wrong with them.

The photo above is #1. Following below the fold are seven more. All of them exhibit signs of photo monkey business, in my humble opinion. But I am no expert, just a student, so please chime in. And above all, have fun!
