Wall Street Journal &Washington Post Advertorial Infotainment

So, is BlackRock writing op-eds these days? Seen a lot of this kind of thing very recently and its something that happens more than it should. Conflicts of interest in coverage and barely disguised advertisements posing as “news” in some of the most respected papers in the nation. Got to say, they’re getting a little too obvious these days and more and more people aren’t buying the bait.

Latest rant posted to YouTube is above right here. Stay tuned will have a new episode of through the plastic screen podcast. Several guests lined up for interview in the coming weeks, you can keep track of the new episodes when they drop at the link above or over a dozen other podcast archive platforms. And don’t forget you can pick up the new book Pedogate Primer: the politics of pedophilia. It is now available for Kindle, audiobook and paperback at Amazon, Powell’s, Barnes & Noble or Powell’s books.

Escape and Overcome: Jessica’s Story (through the plastic screen podcast ep02)

I spent months talking to victims of a Texas ponzi and real estate fraud ring before sharing my notes and numbers with journalist Alissa Fleck. For backstory make sure to check out Crimescoop.org’s coverage. Part II will be coming soon. Dozens of people lost everything, some, even their lives. Today we will be focusing on Jessica’s story. 

Jessica was married to one of the members of the con ring. It wasn’t until she found herself living in Costa Rica that some issues began to arise that were too big to ignore. We will hear her harrowing experience and courageous escape. She has spent years keeping in contact with some of the others who were hurt by this callous gang and has repeatedly done what she can to get this story of multimillion dollar fraud, a mini-Madoff ring that preyed not on the fabulously wealthy but on people from all walks of life. 

You can listen to it at Buzzsprout, Stitcher, Spotify, Audible or other podcasting platforms.

plastic screen ep01: William Ramsey’s Global Death Cult

Episode 1 of through the plastic screen is live! Had some static issues with the headset mic during the first 5 minutes but took care of it after that. Lav mic on the way, so hopefully future episodes will be higher quality. Unfortunately, can’t sit up and use the home recording studio mixer/mic kit I previously used to record due to the spinal injury keeping me on my side most of the day. If you can get past the static in the first few minutes, you’re in for a wild ride. Ramsey’s Global Death Cult:  The Order of Nine Angles, Atomwaffen and the Slaughter of the Innocents is an incredible tale, stranger than fiction.

Listen to the episode here.



For those familiar with MK-Ultra, Project Paperclip and Gladio, the idea of military and intelligence working with Nazis shouldn’t be too much of a surprise. Ramsey’s latest book delves into the Order of 9 Angles/O9A which boasts connections as far ranging as David Tibet of the underground goth band Current 93 to Operation Gladio front group Column 88 (H being the 8th letter of the alphabet, 88 is shorthand for “Heil Hitler”).

What’s more, these groups are responsible for decades of murders, terror attacks and other atrocities and they have cells, or “nexions” to use their lingo, all over the world. Make sure to check out Ramsey’s site William Ramsey Investigates as well. You can find his podcast and previous books and even get signed copies direct from the author. Ramsey was also one of the first podcasters to interview me about my book Pedogate Primer: the politics of pedophilia you can find that interview here.

Interview with William Ramsey on Global Death Cult (Atomwaffen, Order of 9 Angles, the Base)

We go in deep on a global satanic/fascist/military nexus of related occult orders interested in neo-Nazi theology, race war and infiltrating police and the armed forces. If you wanted to know the connection between David Tibet of Current 93 and the Edinburgh nail bomber or how Gladio led to a family of satanic/fascist secret orders and the potential FBI connection to Antifa researchers Unicorn Riot.

Charles Manson, James Mason (the white nationalist, not Cary Grant’s costar in North by Northwest), Genesis P-Orridge, Lindsay Souvannarath the half-Thai neo-Nazi “furry” responsible for plotting the attempted Halifax Valentine’s day mall shooting, the cast of characters and the plot is almost difficult to believe but having read William’s thoroughly cited book, it’s harder to deny the possibility.

The audio only version, including 90 seconds of bumper music and intro monologue by me will be uploaded to http://philfairbanks.buzzsprout.com and from there syndicated to all the major podcasting platforms for you to download. Generally the podcast episode will come first, but since we recorded on Streamyard it was recorded as a live broadcast. In the future, will try to inform folks if a livestream is planned, was fun interacting with and answering questions from everyone listening at YouTube.


Still bedridden and in the neck brace and cervical collar which makes sitting up to type difficult and my headset mic had some static issues, but will be using a lav mic for future recordings until I am able to get surgery and get back to using the home recording set up. Not to mention being able to finish revisions for the Deep State book and work on gathering sources and making notes the next two titles I have in the works.

The podcast will be fairly eclectic: folklore experts, reports, a PI, authors on various subjects, a scientist who studies ethnobotanical herbs, a crusader against the dangers of topical steroid awareness… in short, just people and topics I’m interested in. If you have suggestions for someone who might make a good guest, you can email me at kafkaguy@gmail.com.

Make sure to check out the William Ramsey Investigates website and Ramsey’s podcast and if the topic of this episode piques your interest, trust me, this is just the tip of the iceberg. You can get the book (even signed copies for collectors) directly from William at his site.

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.

A HOUSTON RACKETEERING RING OF “MINI-MADOFFS” HAS BEEN EXTORTING VICTIMS OUT OF THEIR LIFE SAVINGS FOR DECADES. THE SYNDICATE IS ALSO LINKED TO A TRAGIC 2016 MURDER-SUICIDE INVOLVING TWO CHILDREN

I spent several months tracking down victims of a far ranging ponzi ring that spent decades swindling numerous innocent people. Like a Mini-Madoff in Houston and Marlin, the story is tragic and heartbreaking and I’m so proud to share a byline with investigative reporter and true crime podcaster, Alissa Fleck on this. She did an astounding job of taking the interviews and some of my notes and tracking down more info to really flesh out this story.

So proud to finally see this go live. Hopefully having their story told is the first step to closure and peace for some people who lost everything, including family members in a few instances. The article below is just part one of a series, here’s hoping that law enforcement and other investigative reporters pick up some of the breadcrumbs we’ve left them…

Check out the first few paragraphs below and you can read the rest at Alissa’s site Crimescoop:

PART I: MURDER AND FRAUD IN TEXAS

Lakshimanarayan “Lucky” Srinivasan, Jeremy Raju Srinivasan, Gwendolyn “Gwen” Stone Stallworth-Sumrall, Alvar Chari, Anirban Haldar and their many co-conspirators, have conned individuals, families, businesses and other organizations out of multiple millions of dollars in cash and assets over the past several decades, leaving many of their victims destitute and their lives ripped apart. The racketeering ring has used a combination of check-kiting, reverse Ponzi and other fraudulent investment schemes to extort money from their hard-working victims, court records show. In 2016, under mounting financial pressure caused by his and his co-conspirators’ volitional fraudulent entanglements, Jeremy murdered his wife and two young children before fatally turning the gun on himself. Lucky, Gwen and the others continue to actively seek new investors to swindle.

Exactly five years ago today, on the morning of April 19, 2016, at 8:30 a.m., Jeremy Raju Srinivasan, 37, sent his father Lakshimanarayan “Lucky” Srinivasan a final text message: “Everything is not OK. Please call police. Goodbye.” What came next was a tragedy that would rock their quiet Houston, Texas suburb, leaving in its wake a trail of devastation and unanswered questions.

Within 15 minutes of sending that text message, Jeremy, his wife Natalie Altier Srinivasan, 35, and their two children, 5-year-old Sienna and 2-year-old Michael James (“MJ”), would be found dead by police inside their Katy, Texas home. One of the detectives who processed the scene, Detective Daniel Calvillo of the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Department, told family members that Natalie was found in bed with a single bullet wound to the head. Jeremy had killed his wife, then shot each kid twice in the head where they lay asleep in bed, before turning the gun on himself.

Defense for the Prosecution: the trial of Kai the Hitchhiker

Kai the Hitchhiker has been the victim of an unfair system after years of unconstitutional detention, questionable and potentially illegal investigation methods, and a trial where even his own defense attorney seemed out to get him.

In the case of Caleb McGillvary, better known by many as Kai the Hitchhiker, the phrase “guilty until proven innocent” has been turned on its ear. Kai went from folk hero and living meme to accused of murder. However, an eyewitness for the trial confirmed disturbing discrepancies in the trial transcript. “Now, I’m going to go over some of the stuff that the State’s going to say well.” As he faced the Jury, his face contorted and his voice vehement with rage, Cito pointed accusingly at Kai. “That shows my client is full of crap,” he continued. “He did this intentionally. He purposefully ran out of the house.” This may sound a bit strange as if the defense were working hand in hand with the prosecution. As strange as it sounds, several moments in the trial support this possibility.

You can find part I of my series on some of the many issues with the trial at The Latest. Part II should be online soon and shooting for part 3 of 4 should be online next week. Follow my site for the latest of my coverage on this case and other stories.

Blast from the Past: Mt Gox & SilkRoad in the news

Ah, the 2010s such a simpler time wasn’t it? A golden age of the internet was soon to pass as the “wild west days” of cyberspace would be inevitably clamped down and ever-elusive “original content” would be replaced by the same corporate crap that makes cable and broadcast television a stultifying bore.

A couple names I haven’t heard in a while are back in the news though: Ross Ulbricht AKA (allegedly) DreadPirateRoberts the admin of the darkweb drug network SilkRoad and Mt. Gox the grandfather of all crypto exchanges. In this video some of the strange connections to these two stories are examined in light of Mt. Gox’s (alleged) plan to make right their debts after the (alleged) hack of nearly 1 million BTC before they shut down.

Massive Miscarriage of Justice in Kai the Hitchhiker Case

Caleb McGillvary, better known as Kai the hitchhiker, is still awaiting trial. Almost four and a half years after he was accused of murder, he is currently still in the Union County Jail, held on $3 million bail. Currently, he’s locked down 23 hours a day in segregation. To top it off, there may be some extenuating circumstances regarding why he is being denied the “speedy trial” guaranteed by the Constitution in the Sixth Amendment.

Kai the Hitchhiker gained some major viral fame after he managed to save the lives of a utility worker and female bystander when a man he was hitching a ride with went off the rails. The man admitted to raping a young girl in the Virgin Islands, then told Kai he believed he was Jesus Christ and could do anything he wanted. At this point, he rammed into a man, pinning him to a truck and began chasing after a woman on the street. Kai took him out by smashing him with the handle of a hatchet he carries for protection. After appearing on Jimmy Kimmel’s show and being featured by Stephen Colbert and others, he became something of an online celebrity, so it wasn’t out of the ordinary that someone might recognize him and invite him to hang out.

That’s what Kai assumed was the case when he was picked up by lawyer Joseph Galfy in New York’s Times Square. Galfy offered him a ride to his house and Kai agreed. Kai alleges that Galfy drugged and raped him. From the time Kai was apprehended in Philadelphia and extradited to New Jersey, Kai has been faced with what basically amounts to a kangaroo court – issues being withheld, conflicts of interest, the brother of the deceased being allowed in the house during an active investigation. If you read Gardner and Suter’s reports, you’d see that in Gardner’s report, it’s noted that the dishwasher had been run between May 13 and 15. The report was written on the 15th and photos were being taken around that time. Why would you run a dishwasher in a house where an ongoing investigation into murder and rape is going on?

According to the Union County Sheriff’s Office, reports at one point during the active investigation noted the dishwasher was run with glasses and mugs found in it. In Edward Suter’s Union County Sheriff’s Office investigative report, it shows they rinsed the beer bottles with fresh water. The beer bottles, glasses, and mugs should have been examined in toxicology reports. Instead, rinsed with fresh water? This is especially disturbing considering the fact that Kai had already reported that he believed he had been drugged and raped. Also left out of the prosecutor’s case to the grand jury is the fact that the two eyewitnesses said Kai appeared glassy-eyed, drugged, and sporting fresh wounds.

Walang paglalarawan ng litrato na available.

The prosecutor makes multiple claims that conflict with the official accounts as laid out in the autopsy, forensic reports, and Officers Adrian Gardner and Edward Suter’s UCSO investigative reports. For one, he notes that a rape kit was run on Galfy and came back negative. On Galfy? Of course, the rape kit run on the alleged rapist came back clear. In a proper investigation, the “unidentified blood” found on Galfy’s genitals would have been tested to see if it belonged to the alleged rape victim. In fact, within the UCSO reports, it is made clear that signs of a sexual assault were present at the scene.

At one point, the prosecutor introduces an “expert doctor,” Robert Pandina. Pandina refused to run a rape kit, and his claims about date rape drugs can be quickly disproved by anyone with a basic understanding of pharmacological agents. When Kai complained to the New Jersey Board of Medical Examiners, they explained that Pandina was not a certified doctor in the state of New Jersey, and as a result, not under their jurisdiction. By the way, passing off someone as a doctor is a felony charge in New Jersey.

Not offering proper services and processing for a victim of sexual assault is also a crime in New Jersey. The prosecutor broke several laws, for one, undermining the New Jersey Attorney General Standards for providing services to victims of sexual assault (NJSA 45:9-18) by pretending Robert Pandina was a medical doctor capable of examining a survivor of sexual assault. In pages 91-93 of the grand jury testimony, the prosecutor commits fraud by passing Robert Pandina off as not only a doctor but an “expert doctor” at that.

The fact that the mugs and bottles of beer that were not washed in the dishwasher were ordered to be fumed with cyanoacrylate for prints and then to be washed out amounts to spoilation or destruction of exculpatory evidence, which is grounds for dismissal alone. As is denying the right to a speedy trial. With the improper handling of a sexual assault victim and perjury on the part of the prosecutor, there are multiple demonstrable crimes on display, which is why Kai has drafted a motion to dismiss along with a State and Federal civil suit against Union County officials.

His motion to dismiss should be heard. There are already ample grounds to throw out the case. The Federal civil suit itself should be a slam dunk, but can’t be heard until the criminal case is cleared, leaving Kai in a sort of catch-22 limbo for now.

By the way, New Jersey law says “sexual assault is a form of serious bodily injury, the threat of which would justify the use of deadly force in self-defense,” per N.J.S.A. 2c:3-4. If Kai wasn’t raped, whose “unidentified blood” is noted in the autopsy? In addition to the defense of self-defense, there is the mismanagement of evidence (quite possibly due to the fact that the alleged rapist was close friends with the prosecutor). Speaking of conflicts of interests, Kai is hoping to be able to receive a lawyer out of the city or state due to the large number of persons who are involved in this case who were good friends of Galfy. The primary criminal judge in Union County did not recuse himself, per se, but did change departments in order to not be a part of the case.

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.
