Although some the people commenting on the huge blog post about Ĺaurel Canyon reckoned that he had faked his own death - although I dunno what had caused them to think that.

conspiratorial thinking I suppose... "too close to the truth", "upset people in high places", etc.,

I found this quote from him on wikispooks which was lifted from his website

On 14 April 2015, I presented a lengthy video deconstruction of the 2013 Boston Marathon incident through the Caravan to Midnight radio show/podcast. About a week later (on 20 April of all days), the nearly four-hour video presentation was uploaded to YouTube. Not long after that, someone using the username Phoenix Archangel posted an interesting comment: "John [Wells, the host of the show] always signs off with some of the best advice ever. Speaking of advice: this David McGowan fella really ought to quit smoking. With all the elitist feathers he's ruffling, he's likely to come down with a spontaneous case of hitherto undiagnosed stage 4 inoperable Pancreatic cancer."

4 weeks later he was diagnosed with an unusually aggressive strain of lung cancer...

No it was more kind of angry and accusatory as I recall, I have a feeling that his son or daughter was maintaining the blog at that point and half the comments were "Isn't it just a little bit too much of a coincidence that your father died precisely sixty-eight years, two months and three days after Marie Prevost did, by exactly a quite similar method of death and how BOTH of them (except for your father) were eaten by their own dog eh eh? Do you people think we're stupid or something?".

Some Spanish ex-police commissioner is claiming the state was involved in terror attacks in Barcelona in 2017 in order to destabilise the Catalan independence movement.

He's apparently incredibly shady himself though, so some people think he's trying to rebrand as a whistleblower and distance himself.

He certainly looks shady...

Is there any possible world where Andrew goes to prison? Who decides these things? I can imagine a meeting between Gates, Rupert Murdoch and The Queen or whatever discussing how after this year the peasants are close to revolt. Normally they would just give them some bread and circuses but this time it's a bit more serious, perhaps they could actually sacrifice one of the lowlier lizard people? I for one would feel a lot better - a kind of warm glow - if I knew that Randy Andy had changed accommodation to a single tiny room which he shares with a twenty stone pervert, so, arguably, from their point of view it would work.

‘CIA SIDEKICK’ GIVES £2.6M TO UK MEDIA GROUPS

Allegations that the US non-profit organisation, National Endowment for Democracy, is a CIA cut-out

NED money has gone to UK investigative groups Bellingcat, Finance Uncovered and openDemocracy, as well as media freedom and training organisations Index on Censorship, Article 19, the Media Legal Defence Initiative, and the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

"NED money" made me laugh - I'm imagining a handful of 10 pence pieces being exchanged for a bottle of buckfast

The headline's a bit strong as you can't blame the whole thing on some inflammatory leaflets coming from the foreign office, but this is grim;


"Documents newly released in the National Archives show how propaganda specialists from the Foreign Office sent hundreds of inflammatory pamphlets to leading anti-communists in Indonesia, inciting them to kill the foreign minister Dr Subandrio and claiming that ethnic Chinese Indonesians deserved the violence meted out to them."

i didnt hear about that one
"A middle-aged Indonesian man, whose brother was brutally murdered in the 1965 purge of communists, confronts the men who carried out the killings. Out of concern for his safety, the man is not fully identified in the film and is credited only as "anonymous," as are many of the film's crew positions. Some shots consist of the man watching (what seems to be) extra footage from The Act of Killing, which includes video of the men who killed his brother. He visits and interviews some of the killers and their collaborators—including his uncle—under the pretense of an eye exam."
