Already bored out of your mind due to the pandemic? Are you desperate to find something mentally engaging to do and maybe learn about the world that's coming post-COVID-19? Well, I just may be able to help you with that. Cue shameless plug:
I'm very pleased to finally announce the release of my debut book, Strange Tales of the Parapolitical: Postwar Nazis, Mercenaries, and Other Secret History, co-authored with Frank Zero of ZeroKnight and The Farm podcast (which we both co-host). Here's a synopsis:
"Strange Tales of the Parapolitical is one long, terrifying journey into the black heart of the national security state and beyond. S. William Snider ("Recluse" of the famed VISUP parapolitical blog) and Frank Zero (he of ZeroKnight and co-author of Contact), co-hosts of the cult podcast The Farm, reteam once again for this series of essays. Here you will learn how one of the wealthiest and most powerful families in these United States has molded both the counterculture and the Christian right for decades; about the international reach of the most infamous Nazi colony in South America, to say nothing of the arch child rapist who headed it; the secret history of the modern private military industry and its shocking reach into the Trump administration; and the terrifying implications of the RFID chip. Drawing equal inspiration from the synchro-mysticism and the scholarly deep political histories of Peter Dale Scott and Jeffrey Bale, Recluse and Zero provide a surreal and haunting road map of how we arrived in the Trump era and where we may go from here."PDF copies of the book are now available at The Farm's official store website. Right now its available in a two pack bundle with Frank's debut work, CONTACT: Them or Us. If you're looking for something to do during quarantine, there's probably worse ways to spend your time than reading these two great books, now available at a special price for a limited amount of time.
For those of you holding out for the physical copies (I know I would be), they will hopefully be on Amazon by April 10th. With the current state of things, I can't say that's a certainty, but that's what we're aiming for. If you're on the fence, please consider going with the digital copies we're offering. You get two books for less than the cost of a physical copy of Strange Tales... and we get to keep all the profits, rather than splitting them with Amazon.
I know times are tough. But if you've enjoyed the content on this blog over the years, please consider supporting it now that I have something to offer. I've been at this for nearly ten years and have literally invested thousands of dollars into the research presented on this blog. I've only ever made a few hundred bucks off of it over the years.
I'm not complaining. I never expected to make significant money off of this thing. But I've reached a point in my research where, if it is to continue to advance, I need additional funding outside of my own pocket. There are ambitious things I would like to do: combing various archives across the country, conducting in person interviews, potentially making a documentary, etc. But I can't afford to do these things by my lonesome.
I've resisted attempting to do crowdfunding or anything like that. I don't like asking for money unless I have something to offer in return. And now I do. So please, consider picking up a copy of Strange Tales... in whatever form is most appealing to you. As I said, I know times are tough. But not only will Strange Tales... help you pass the time, it will also breakdown the emerging world order. In the private contractors essay alone you will learn about the profound transformation the national security state underwent during the Bush II years, the forces that brought Trump to power as a result, and the now-prophetic Anthrax false flag staged in the immediate aftermath of 9/11 (and likely linked to SAIC). And this is just scratching the surface. There's a lot of great stuff in this book, and while not intended as such, it provides a compelling analysis of the evolution of the national security state from the aftermath of World War II to present day. It will take things you've learned on this blog to the next level.

Be warned: a epic media blitz is about to unfold for this book. Expect many podcasts in the coming weeks. And with that dear readers, I shall sign off for now. Stay tuned and thank you all so very much for your support.
