GoFundMe For Cervical Spinal Surgery

I was urged by friends for months to start a GoFundMe to help raise the money I will need for surgery. I’m going to need at least $8000-13,000. As is, if you weren’t aware, I’m stuck here on my side or back wearing a foam neck brace and cervical collar day and night apart from in the shower. And, not to be gross, but I generally just scrub up outside the shower while sitting on the toilet unless I’m sweaty and starting to stink because my balance is a bit off and I can’t afford a fall. Doctors and surgeons I have seen have told me a hard fall could lead to at best incontinence, at worse quadriplegia or death by asphyxiation. As a “long haired country boy” I don’t like to ask anybody for anything I can’t get on my own, but I honestly won’t be able to get this done without help. In fact, I even had to cut the long hair because it kept getting stuck in the neck brace and cervical collar velcro.

With the pandemic and lockdowns going on, it’s economically unstable times for a lot of people, so please, if you are considering giving, don’t unless you can absolutely afford it without having to skip out on frills and niceties you enjoy and definitely not if it means putting you in a financial bind. That said, if you are able and want to help it is absolutely greatly appreciated. I’ve already been overwhelmed by the support, not only financial but just as important, emotional support from so many people.

Haven’t done an update in a while and after typing up several paragraphs browser crashed so here I go again lol. The last couple weeks have been pretty rough. Pain and insomnia were at their height last week but from early Friday evening till Monday morning I basically hibernated just waking up intermittently for a few hours, putting on some documentaries and passing back out. My mood was getting pretty low last week from a mixture of anxiety, pain and lack of sleep but getting some good rest improved the pain which also improved my mood. Need to file taxes in the next few days so can’t afford to get depressed and demotivated.

Speaking of mood, one of the things keeping me afloat has been the immense, even overwhelming amount of love and support I’ve received via emails, calls and DMs. With the pandemic and lockdown going on, I know not everyone can donate, but the emotional support is appreciated. Apologies for my lag in responding, I’m still not able to sit up for extended periods and really don’t like being relegated to touchscreen for communication and having spent close to a half a year mostly on my side or back with a foam neck brace and uncomfortable hard cervical collar. As a result, sometimes the days seem to run into each other.

It’s been a very difficult year but I have to say, it’s also been paradoxically a very heartening year. As I’ve mentioned to some people, it’s kind of like It’s a Wonderful Life only instead of trying to commit suicide by jumping off a bridge it was being nearly crippled by a massage that led to the realization that apparently I make some kind of impact on the world, even if it’s just a small one to a small group of people. For everyone who has offered any emotional or financial support during this whole situation, I can’t explain how much it means to me. I only hope that when all this is finally resolved I can find a way to pay back or pay forward for everyone who has helped keep me afloat.

For the record, the first draft of this was slightly better, but hopefully the sentiment still shines through. In short, thank you so much everyone.

through the plastic screen Podcast debuts!

Will be doing a podcast, got some great guests lined up. Will probably post the first 30-45 minutes free on the various podcast sites (stitcher, spreaker, pandora, fm player, buzzsprout and others) and share the full episodes here at Patreon. First episode is a snippet from PI Ed Opperman’s interview with me about my recent book, it was a Patreon exclusive but he gave me permission to share a portion of the interview, for just $3/mo. You can get access to documents, interviews and more from Ed, highly recommend if you’re interested in true crime, corruption and parapolitics.

PI Ed Opperman is one of the first folks who was tracking down Epstein years before MSM caught on, years before he was a household name. He was also involved in uncovering the secret service underage sex scandal in Colombia using his skills as a forensic investigator. He’s appeared on multiple major news outlets and interviewed best selling authors, experts of all stripes and high caliber parapolitical researchers and authors so I’m always honored when I get a chance to do the show.
My latest appearance on the Opperman Report was in February, it ran on about a half dozen FM stations and a few more on the AM band, but the full episode is a Patreon exclusive online. Luckily, Ed gave me permission to share a snippet of that interview here where I talk about my book Pedogate Primer: the politics of pedophilia. Conversation runs from whether I know who Q really is to the DOD child porn scandal and Project Flicker to CIA’s mind control experiment MK-Ultra and the False Memory Syndrome Foundation and more. If you enjoy the show, you can find my other two episodes of the Opperman Report on YouTube, at Stitcher and Spreaker or by going to philfairbanks.com and clicking on the interviews tab at the top. If you like what you hear, I recommend checking out his patreon for exclusive documents, court filings, exclusive Patreon only interviews and more and don’t forget you can find my book Pedogate Primer at Amazon for Kindle, Kindle Unlimited or in paperback as well as through Barnes and Noble and a couple of other sites.

Check out episode 1 below and expect new episodes to drop each Thursday.

One Step forward two steps back: on the mend update

I have now spent most of 2021 either unable or hardly able to walk and confined to bed or wheelchair. Will be trying to get another doctors appointment to see if I’m ready for physical therapy next week. The hardest part is passed not having trouble operating doorknobs or opening bottles of water anymore still a ways to go before I’m back where I was. Going to spend time resting as much as possible and hopefully be back to normal (or as normal as I ever was LOL) soon. Great thanks to all who kept me in their prayers offered support and help during this difficult time. Much love and respect.

false memory syndrome foundation

False Memory Syndrome Foundation Book In the Works

An entire chapter is dedicated to the False Memory Syndrome Foundation in my book Pedogate Primer: the politics of pedophilia. That said, I’ve noticed there doesn’t seem to be a single volume devoted specifically to who they were, what they did and perhaps most importantly… the impact they effected on the world for 3 decades.


Despite closing down at the end of last December, many victims still are affected by the FMSF’s “expert witnesses” (which included pedophile advocates, alleged child abusers and child pornographers rounded out by a handful of doctors and scientists, some with suspicious MK-Ultra ties.

In a recent video I did I refer to Professor Ross E. Cheit, the author of The Witch-Hunt Narrative: politics, psychology and the sexual abuse of children. I am currently making notes from that and dozens of academic papers and several books on the false memory syndrome vs. recovered memory therapy controversy, dissociative disorders from traumatic abuse and related topics.

I find it odd that here we are nearing the first anniversary of the final end of the False Memory Syndrome Foundation and despite existing since 1992 no one has yet written a book specifically focused on that organization and it’s long ranging effects, both short and long term.

Speaking of the long term effects, even though the organization is gone, their massive decades long PR push is still remarkably potent. I will try to keep you posted on this as well as attempting to keep occasional new work posted here along with clips from previously published work, videos and interviews.

Meantime, if you did read my book, would mean a great deal if you reviewed it at Amazon. You can also follow me at GoodReads, BookBub, my Amazon Author Profile, Twitter and YouTube.

mcmartin preschool satanic panic

Examining McMartin Preschool Satanic Panic vs Witch Hunt Narrative

Easily the most controversial section in my book Pedogate Primer: the politics of pedophilia will be the chapter on the “Satanic Panic.” Regardless of whether or not “satanic ritual abuse” was an element in many of the cases later ruled to be the result of “moral panic” and hysteria or not, I believe the child victims were not making up all their stories at the behest of overzealous therapists and a coalition of feminists and fundamentalist Christians as many assert.

Time to “dig” into the stories of the tunnels and other details that are often left out by popular debunkers of the Satanic Panic era child abuse scandals. The McMartin Preschool case helped kick off the “Satanic Panic” of the 1980s. Many claimed based on this case there was a massive witchhunt and moral panic responsible for claims of a “child abuse epidemic.”

Thanks to some CIA connected scientists, parents accused by their children of abuse and at least one proud pedophile activist, the False Memory Syndrome Foundation was able to hand wave away McMartin with the claim of “false memories” implanted in the children. This pattern continued and hundreds of cases were affected by the “expert testimony” of these MK-Ultra doctors, alleged child molesters and pedophiles like Dr. Ralph Underwager. In this video I do my best to debunk the debunkers, especially Debbie Nathan and the New York Times’ Retro Report mini-documentary on the subject. I point out many of the inconsistencies constantly brought up by those debunking the “witchhunt” and we do a little digging into the strange story of the McMartin tunnels.

Stay tuned, I will be doing some more work related to the False Memory Syndrome Foundation based on the notes I’m putting together for a future book on the subject.
buscalan apo whang od mambabatok

Trekking to Remote Buscalan

In March of 2018 I made the trek out to the remote mountain village of Buscalan in the Kalinga province in the Cordeillero region in northern Luzon, Philippines. We came to try and get tattoos from Apo Whang Od, oldest living Kalinga Tattoo Artist (or “mambabatok”). We weren’t able to get ink from Apo Whang but did get tattooed in the traditional fashion (pomelo thorn, bamboo and charcoal ink).


The trip alone was long, arduous and at times somewhat precarious. After hours spent on an overnight bus ride, we made it to Bontoc, as far as the bus line ran towards our destination. From Bontoc we took a jeepney ride up the Halsema highway, one of the most dangerous highways in all of Asia. I remember wondering why there were so many large stones and boulders in the road… that’s when I noticed that it was because they were regularly just rolling off the side of the mountain.

Holding on to the rails of the top of the jeepney for dear life we rode up the highway up until the point that nothing with wheels could pass. From here we found a guide who accompanied us as we made the steep hike up the narrow path. At one point I ended up losing a sandal which got sucked down into a rice paddy, never to be seen again! Ah, but it was worth it for the once in a lifetime experience we gained.

In this video I go into a little bit of detail about some of the history behind the Kalinga and their tattoo tradition. Thanks to the Goldwater staff, especially my Goldwater co-host Diana Printz who was responsible for video-recording and editing the audio and video together and K2, our a/v guy who mixed the audio of my recording and of course Diana, Maria and Tita Fely for accompanying me on the adventure.
