Ever wondered how our opinions & prejudices are formed? Well there's a new book out on the life of Bill Cooper entitled;
'Pale Horse Rider, William Cooper, the Rise of Conspiracy & the Fall of Trust in America' which I can safely assume describes the process in full. I'm not going to buy the book or even read it having watched an hour of Mark Jacobson showcasing his new, er, book by way of an interview with ex-Atlantic Records boss Danny Goldberg. What I'll attempt to do instead is explain why the the book was written & break down piece by piece the hour-long train of contrived subliminals in the below video of Jacobson showcasing his book, designed to trigger the appropriate emotional responses in the listening audience. Using all the techniques of the salesman, mesmerist, mountebank, even actor, Jacobson strategically artifices an illusional portrait of Americas greatest prophet, purposefully using familiar, but stigmatised terms as he goes & I'll point out some of the more poignant aspects of this & explore the reasons why as we go along. As we do, I'd like to offer a word of caution, it's critical we don't get caught up with these ad-hom attacks on our Truth Movement leaders, they are in part designed to deflect truth-seekers from their objectives which are the CAUSES of the conflicts we see in the world today, these matters I'm addressing here are some of the EFFECTS, it's important we remember that, nevertheless, they sometimes need to be addressed for a fuller understanding of
the bigger picture.
Lets take it stage by stage;
1. THE AUTHOR.
'Mark Jacobson is a writer & journalist based in Brooklyn, New York. He is known for his explorations of the seamy side of urban life & for his offbeat & witty take on popular culture. Mark is a contributing editor at New York magazine & a frequent contributor to The Village Voice, National Geographic, Natural History magazine, Men’s Journal, & other publications' ….&…. 'Mark Jacobson is a journalist, screenplay writer, novelist, radio host Author of “Gojiro,” a novel of Godzilla, “The Lampshade,” non-fiction account of an evil object that turned up in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the story for the movie American Gangster, as well as long-time host of the KGB Radio Hour.'
So here's a Socialist doing a bio on a guy who proudly referred to himself as; 'Socialisms greatest enemy'? OK. He's also written screenplays for films featuring people such as Helen Mirren & Joe Pesci no less, so fairly well CONNECTED then, & yes he's in with the Ufoology crowd, as Bill called it……so no axe to grind there then either? OK. Interestingly, he insinuates he knew Cooper by stating he remembered when Bill was selling the Zapruder tape at his lectures in the late 80's. Now there's a thought. The next thing Jacobson mentions is he remembers some famous Rappers being seriously into Bill Cooper in the early 90's (Tupac for one). How does this 70-odd yr old remember so much about Cooper before he'd written BAPH or when he'd only just begun broadcasting the Hour Of The Time radio show? Jacobson recalls, 'So this became a journalistic calling for me to find out why this was.' Again implying more than a passing interest in the guy, AT THE TIME. Moreover, he gives the impression it's because of BAPH the Rappers are into Cooper, yet the time frame would suggest it was because of his peerless radio show; 'The Hour Of The Time ' Tupac & co were Cooper fans although I may be wrong,
but I doubt it.
2. THE BOOK.
It's now become a directive to mention 'conspiracy' when talking about Cooper or anyone else associated with the Truth Movement. &, sure enough, Jacobson's hatchet job has it slap bang in the middle of the title. Moreover, Jacobson snides; 'Now Cooper is generally considered to be a conspiracy nut, &, he was, thats why I spent so long on writing this book.' Now there's objective journalism for you, if nothing else.
(see my Cooper/Jones Meme blog for more on this issue).
The title of the book, 'Pale Horse Rider, William Cooper, the Rise of Conspiracy & the Fall of Trust in America' is loaded with seeds of thought-provoking stimuli & designed to foster fear, suspicion & confusion. 'Ordo Ab Chao' as they say, meaning Order out of Chaos, which is the motto of the 33rd Degree of the
Scottish Rite of Freemasonry.
Sound far fetched? Then try this from 2009 by Bill's arch enemy the 'Southern Poverty Law Centre';
'The self-identified leader of the Ohio Militia, a conspiracy-minded “Patriot” group, released a video earlier this week calling for 1 million heavily armed antigovernment demonstrators to march on Washington, D.C., this coming July 4. “We need to do something,” he said. “We need to make a dent.” Identifying himself as “Pale Horse,” apparently a reference to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, & speaking through a creepy voice distorter, the Ohio militiaman detailed his brazen vision…..But Pale Horse’s call for a gathering of gun-toting militia forces in the nation’s capital brings to mind a similar infamous call to arms issued in 1994 by Patriot movement attorney, filmmaker & conspiracy theorist Linda Thompson….Thompson’s plan was almost universally denounced by right-wing groups, including most of the militias that were then appearing all over the country, who accused her of attempting to lead them on a suicide mission.'
This is a thinly veiled attack on Bill obviously, but also an all out attack on Bill's friend Linda Thompson, it was actually Bill who talked Linda Thompson out of doing the march whilst on the air. The effervescent Thompson was hounded to the grave by these
'scum-sucking pigs' as Bill like to call them,
she allegedly committed 'suicide' just days after this article was published.
The purpose of the 'Pale Horse' of the Apocalypse epithet is not only their intention to label Cooper a doom & gloom merchant, but whoever wrote the Book of Revelation borrowed heavily from an established Hindu myth, that of 'Kalki', the tenth & final Avatar (incarnation) of Vishnu who'll appear upon the earth in the last days of the present age seated on a white horse to destroy the unjust, to end all suffering & usher in a 'New Age' of peace among men, the Pale Horse is an archetypal symbol thats been used in the mythology of many of the worlds ancient pagan religions for millennia, thus in my estimation, whoever wrote 'Pale Horse Rider',
will be a millennialist.
Most people nowadays are aware of the negative connotations associated with the word 'conspiracy', however there are other less obvious memes at work on the subconscious here. The first example of of conditioning Jacobson uses on Cooper is the 'Fringe' canard,
one common description is;
'a group with marginal or extremist views' - merriam-webster.com
For 'Extremist' read; 'Terrorist'.
Secondly, when Jacobson is explaining Bill's role in exposing the JFK assassination, Goldman asks how it went from being a left to a right wing cause, to which Jacobson replies to the effect, it's when the right wing began smoking pot & eventually became the more paranoid of the two. He drums the 'Coopers a paranoid' ticket for all it's worth whilst erroneously drawing on some of Bill's beliefs, good v evil & so on, this immediately after telling his audience how Bill's time as a riverboat captain in Vietnam then his stint in Naval Intelligence had left him disillusioned, the implication here as I see it, is it's his roundabout way of saying Cooper was schizophrenic. Why do I say this? It's because I can't understand how one man who's spent years researching another man can get so many things that are easily proven to be wrong about him in so short a space of time & at his own filmed showcase, unless he had ulterior motifs. The most glaring example is both Jacobson & Goldberg's accusation of Cooper being an 'Anti Semite', because of his publishing the 'Protocols of Zion' in his book. If, by anti semite they mean anti Jewish then they have shot themselves in the foot, Cooper fought tooth & nail to clear the Jews name & thats easily checked in many of his broadcasts & I've published examples of him saying it on Youtube myself in two videos. If by anti semite they mean Cooper was an anti Mason then they are correct for he was certainly that (See my 'Anti Semantics' blog for explanation).
Unsurprisingly the name Alex Jones springs up. Apparently there was no antagonism between the two men according to Jacobson, or if he believed there was, it's not mentioned here. From what I can make of it, Jones idolised Cooper, to the extent that he based his radio persona on him, & when Bill was murdered, only loyal but misguided Jones covered the story in full, even phoning people in Eagar himself to find out what really happened & speaking to them on air, alas for poor Alex however, he could only find Cooper enemies judging by the calls. Poor Alex, hearing about his mentor being gunned down like he was must have left him unhinged, just like his hero Bill.
(See my Cooper/Jones Meme blog).
Incidentally, Cooper did a 3-show exposure of Jones in 2000 & railed against him whenever he could, for instance he once said he was going to cut Jones' feet off.
At least Goldberg acknowledges the set is scripted by admitting Jacobson has handed him a list of questions beforehand which he holds throughout. & for any anti-Satanic fans out there looking for the infernal symbols, whilst Goldberg calls Jacobson's book, '..a masterpiece', he flashes the old obligatory 666 sign. Masterpiece? I hope Jacobsons a better writer than he is a speaker, as he can hardly string a coherent sentence together. Incidentally this is odd, one would never have guessed Goldman had read the book judging by his ignorance on anything to do with Cooper's life, but hey.
5. TERMS OF REFERENCE
So as not to be accused of neglecting to mention Coopers classic radio broadcast, at the very beginning, Jacobson reads a series of excerpts from it, however, it is not articulated in any sense of the word, it's fleetingly mentioned a couple of times & not in a flattering manner. Moreover, Jacobson leaves the impression that BAPH, written long before Coopers radio show began….is the reason Cooper became the legend he did, again, it's alluded to in Jacobson's book title & if one didn't know anything about Cooper, one would think it's from BAPH that Jacobson was reading when he did his 5min monologue of Cooper quotes at the beginning when it was not.
6. IT'S THE JEWS
For anyone unfamiliar with Bill Cooper, he did more than anyone else on this planet to prove & more importantly, to ram it into peoples heads that the New World Order is not being brought about by Judaism, but by people hiding behind Judaism to make it look as if it is them behind it all, & yes lots of them are born into Jewish families, most aren't though. I'm not certain but I'll have a guess & suggest both Mark & Danny fit the above description seeing as they have Jewish-sounding names. In any event, the point to remember is, THEY HAVE JEWISH-SOUNDING NAMES. I understand anti-Jewish sentiment in America is at an all time high & is it any wonder, with people like Jacobson & Goldberg going around deconstructing the legacy one of America's loyalist sons? On a serious note, apart from having a Jewish name, I think Mark Jacobson was carefully CHOSEN for the task because of his admittedly charming, jovial nature & marketable persona, alternatively, if it was brilliantly written by a dull, clinical, bald Marxist/Atheist bureaucrat-type, which it easily could have been, then it would have been too obvious a hit, there HAS to be distractions for the magic to take hold, & I'm not altogether convinced Mark Jacobson himself is aware of this process although I'm quite sure Danny Goldberg is.
7. QUESTION TIME
First off it's another pointless 5minute shpeel by an audience member about JFK that ultimately leads to Cooper & the aliens. With this, Jacobson becomes rather defensive & even derogative towards the member of the audience, why? If we surmise that at the time when Jacobson came across Cooper in the late 80's, Cooper was touting the alien thing, by the time BAPH came out in 1991 he'd begun to drop the alien hoax & expose it for what was, but Jacobson himself is still in cahoots with this deception, then we can surmise two possibilities, either Jacobson hasn't read or listened to anything Bill Cooper did after 1991 until his death in 2001 or Jacobson is a fraudster, which is why he was so uncomfortable, even during a scripted event. Moreover, to my surprise, the end question came from James Jankiewicz, a man noted for doing (from what I've seen of it) a decent documentary on the Hour Of The Time, something he did with the aid of Doyel Shamely (as did Jacobson) who was Coopers assistant for the last 4yrs of his life, so one would expect Jankiewicz to rake Jacobson over the coals for his fraudulent defamation campaign against Cooper, IF he were at least a neutral……but no, he merely offers a lame insight into Donald Trumps Presidency, which tells me he's on Jacobson's side of the fence.
Danny Goldberg, before he assumed presidency of Atlantic records was vice president of 'Swan Song', English Crowleyites, Led Zeppelin's record company…..so no conflict of interest on Goldbergs behalf either? OK.
Incidentally, Swan Song's logo is Lucifer falling from heaven.

Anyway enough of this shite, the thing's a stitch up from start to finish by a couple of crooks, who've obviously been shot down in flames somewhere along the line by the integrity of Coopers research. There must be 100's of 1000's of guys like this in America, all over the world even who feel the same way…….& only Cooper could have been responsible for their plight. These kind of surreptitious attacks were the reason I set up a Bill Cooper Forum in 2015, i.e. because of people pretending to be on Coopers side when in fact they're out to discredit him, SIMPLY BECAUSE THERE IS NO OTHER WAY OF DOING IT, such was the power, breadth & integrity of the mans work. These guys couldn't last 2 seconds in the ring with Cooper when he was alive nor it seems even when he's dead.
& so I may not be accused of over-zealous partiality here, I was a Led Zep freak as a teenager, to the extent of having a poster above my head whilst I slept. I fondly remember reading about Danny Goldman in Stephen Davis'; 'Hammer of the Gods', so I was a little taken aback when I first saw the clip, as the Led Zep bio paints a different picture to the snake we see in the video, he can't even bring himself to utter Bill Cooper's name, instead it's a demeaning;
for most of the hour.
If I have any of the above wrong, for once I don't really care. Because as I suspected, judging by this review by The New Republic's
Colin Dickey, the book is a load of old pale-horseshit in any an event;
