Planet X: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

| April 9, 2016

Clint Eastwood, Lee Van Cleef, and Eli WallacThe number of people coming to the topic of planet X these days is growing, and I am often asked my opinion of others in the field. Since I get these questions so often I felt it was time to share an article to help those new to the topic of planet X to better understand and evaluate the different voices in the field, for there is a good deal of confusion.

With this in mind, were going to categorize them as the good, the bad, and the ugly, which is a takeoff on the 1966 spaghetti western featuring Clint Eastwood, Lee Van Cleef, and Eli Wallach. And you betcha, we’re gonna slap leather.

Then, we’re going to end with a new Star Wars-style phenomena that I am seeing in the topic these days the same old evil Empire, but a whole new generation of Jedi Knights. May the Force be with us!

The goal here is not to take jabs at people. It is to help you, the reader, to evaluate the various voices in this topic on your own. Because in the final analysis, it is you who must be responsible for your own survival.

Likewise, as new players come to the table, you need to be able to discern for yourself who is dealing from the top of the deck and who is dealing from somewhere else.

That being said, what prompts this article is actually an old question, or what YouTube pundits would call, an “old narrative:” Did Planet X kill the dinosaurs?

Why The Topic of Planet X is 65 Million Years Old

For years, Wikipedia claimed that the topic of Planet X was an Internet hoax created by Nancy Leider of the Zetatalk website. Now they are changing their tune, and according to Wikipedia astronomer “Percival Lowell, is the originator of the Planet X hypothesis.”

With all due respect to Wikipedia, I must respond by saying they’re still getting it wrong. The term Planet X was coined by American astronomer Percival Lowell sometime between 1905 and 1908, however, he is not “the originator of the Planet X hypothesis” as Wikipedia states.

For those who want to understand the full history of the term Planet X, watch my video Planet X 101: Who, What, When, Where, Why and How.


The reason for this Wikipedia misinformation is speculative, but without doubt, it’s just one of a number of voices leading people down confusing rabbit holes.

With this in mind, let’s jump down the mother of all rabbit holes, which falls 65 million years into the past with the extinction of the dinosaurs. This is not an academic discussion for Planet X researchers because at that time these creatures were the dominant species on the planet.

If we want to be intelligent enough to avoid becoming the next dominant species fossil layer above their own, that is where the conversation about Planet X must begin.

What Goes Around Comes Around

There is an old expression, “what goes around comes around.” So when a supporter sent me an article published by the University of Arkansas’s last month, I saw something wonderful. After decades of notable absence, mainstream science is slowly returning to the topic of Planet X, including considering the extinction of the dinosaurs some 65 million years ago.

U of A Researcher Links Mass Extinctions to ‘Planet X’

Daniel WhitmireFAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Periodic mass extinctions on Earth, as indicated in the global fossil record, could be linked to a suspected ninth planet, according to research published by a faculty member of the University of Arkansas Department of Mathematical Sciences.

Daniel Whitmire, a retired professor of astrophysics now working as a math instructor, published findings in the January issue of Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society that the as yet undiscovered “Planet X” triggers comet showers linked to mass extinctions on Earth at intervals of approximately 27 million years.

Though scientists have been looking for Planet X for 100 years, the possibility that it’s real got a big boost recently when researchers from Caltech inferred its existence based on orbital anomalies seen in objects in the Kuiper Belt, a disc-shaped region of comets and other larger bodies beyond Neptune. If the Caltech researchers are correct, Planet X is about 10 times the mass of Earth and could currently be up to 1,000 times more distant from the sun

Whitmire and his colleague, John Matese, first published research on the connection between Planet X and mass extinctions in the journal Nature in 1985 while working as astrophysicists at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Their work was featured in a 1985 Time magazine cover story titled, “Did Comets Kill the Dinosaurs? A Bold New Theory About Mass Extinctions.”

What really got my attention with this article is that Daniel Whitmire first posed the question of celestial objects playing a role in the extinction of dinosaurs in a 1985 Time magazine cover story. Later  in this article, I’m going to explain why this 1985 date is so important to us today. But for now, let’s set the calendar back to January 2002.

Planet X and

Dr. Brian Marsden, Associate Director of the Smithsonian Astrophysics Observatories (5 August 1937 – 18 November 2010).In July 2001 I appeared in a space threat documentary produced by PAX TV which also featured Dr. Brian Marsden, Associate Director of the Smithsonian Astrophysics Observatories (5 August 1937 – 18 November 2010).

It was a successful program and PAX came back to me with a request for another interview, this time to present an alternate theory of what caused the dinosaurs to go extinct. We are all well aware of the K-T impact extinction theory of Nobel laureate physicist, Luis Alvarez, however, there is also a competing K-T Deccan Traps theory put forward by Professor Dewey McLean.

What we really have here are two competing theories about events occurring at the same time on different sides of the earth. During about the same time of the asteroid impact in Chicxulub, Mexico, there was also a massive volcanic eruption happening in India, with lava flows miles thick.

With these competing theories in mind, I approached Dr. Brian Marsden and asked him if he would help me to develop a plausible scenario, and he graciously agreed.

We did a great deal of work on it together and PAX was very impressed with the results of our joint effort. So they sent out another production crew to film me presenting this alternate extinction theory.

Once the program aired I was shocked to see that the executive producer had edited sound bites out of context to make it appear that I had validated their theological position that human beings and dinosaurs a coexisted a few thousand years ago.

It was a humiliating betrayal, and worst of all it cost me a wonderful friendship with Marsden, who was no doubt incensed by this deceitful bait and switch by PAX.

However, adversity often brings opportunities for good things to happen. And so, just to set the record straight, I published the technical data I had prepared with the help of Dr. Brian Marsden in what would become my very first Planet X article.

Did Planet X / Nibiru Kill The Dinosaurs?

Did Planet X Kill the DinosaursDid Planet X Kill The Dinosaurs? There is a growing interest in finding a planet-sized object in long period orbit that brings it through the core of our solar system on a regular basis, causing huge mass extinctions with each flyby of Earth.

The names Planet X and Nibiru are heavily mentioned on web sites like Zeta Talk and by talk radio personalities like Art Bell, along with the next flyby date of 2003. If Planet X really exists, then we have to assume that it has passed this way before, and given the violent end of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago, that assumption carries with it a frightening consequence for mankind.

This is why I sensed change was in the wind when I read that the March 30, 2016 article by University of Arkansas featured Daniel Whitmire’s 1985 Time magazine cover story about celestial objects and the extinction of the dinosaurs. A Good change. A Necessary change. To explain why, let’s begin with the good, after which we will look at the bad, and the ugly as well.

The Good

How do you know the good from the bad and the ugly? The good are scandalously smeared, die mysterious deaths, and their work is viciously trivialized. Let’s begin by examining the smears.

There is an old expression from WWII that pretty much hits the nail on the head. “If you’re not taking flak, you’re not over the target.” In other words, when you see smear attacks that smack of tactics straight out of the Joseph Goebbels Nazi propaganda playbook, you have three choices: play dumb, take vicarious pleasure from the attack, or seek to determine the motive for the attack.

Such is the case with the recent smear campaign against Percival Lowell and Clyde W. Tombaugh of the Lowell Observatory in Arizona, America’s first Planet X astronomers.

To help you understand the contributions of these two men, let’s briefly review what I explain in my video Planet X 101: Who, What, When, Where, Why and How.

In the search for Planet X, Uranus was the first planet to be discovered with a telescope. This happened in 1781. And after William Herschel dazzled the world with his discovery, astronomers began observing it with keen interest.

In time they learned that Uranus also had perturbations in its orbit which could only be attributed to an unknown celestial object. This is when the term Planet X first came into being, where “X” stands for the unknown. As in when an algebra class instructor tells you to, “solve for X.”

Based on the observed perturbations in the orbit of Uranus the actual search for Planet X began, which led to the discovery of Neptune. Like Uranus, Neptune had perturbations in its orbit which could only be attributed to an unknown celestial object.

Once again, the search was on for Planet X. Things picked up when the effort moved from Europe to America, thanks to American astronomer Percival Lowell.

The Good – Percival Lowell, Clyde W. Tombaugh

Percival Lowell

Percival Lowell: Founded the Lowell Observatory in 1894 at Flagstaff, Arizona

The Lowell Observatory was established in 1894 in Flagstaff, Arizona by Percival Lawrence Lowell, a wealthy businessman, mathematician, and astronomer. One reason he founded the observatory was to study the Planet Mars and its canals. The other reason was the search for other objects of interest in our solar system, most particularly Neptune’s perturber, Planet X.

The article, Scientists claimed they found elusive ‘Planet X.’ Doubting astronomers are in an uproar, was published by Washington Post staff writer Sarah Kaplan on December 11, 2015. It described, and attacked, two Planet X journal articles published by astronomers at the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in Northern Chile.

The article contained vicious and unprofessional smear attacks by both Kaplan and CalTec astronomer Mike Brown, not just on ALMA, but on Lowell and Tombaugh as well.

Planet X Smear Team - Brown and Kaplan

Some would defend Kaplan’s smearing the reputations of two men, long dead and gone, on the grounds that Kaplan is obviously ignorant of astronomy and its history. Rather, as a newbie reporter, she participated in a smear to up her position. A cheap way to fame. However, there is a lot more here than a cheap smear campaign for personal gain.

Reporters do not have a free hand to publish anything they wish under the name of their reporting institution. That is why there is an editorial process, and it is through this editorial process that the Washington Post blessed Kaplan’s article before publication.

Ergo, this smear campaign was conducted with the blessings of senior Washington Post editors. Smoking gun proof of collaboration between Caltech and The Washington Post to inject disinformation into the topic of planet X by smearing the reputation of two historical men of science. With this in mind, let’s see how Kaplan smeared Percival Lawrence Lowell., December 17, 2015
ALMA Astronomers Publish Planet X Papers Before USA Can Suppress

Sarah Kaplan - The Washington PostSARAH KAPLAN: “…no Planet X researcher was more beleaguered than Percival Lowell, who launched into the search for the distant object in an attempt to redeem himself after he became a laughing stock for suggesting that aliens might be building canals on Mars.”

“Lowell spent years photographing the night sky with nothing more than a primitive camera and borrowed telescope, searching for evidence of a planet whose existence was still only a theory. He died of a stroke in 1916, his search unsuccessful. A lifelong friend said that the failure ‘virtually killed him.’ ”

YOWUSA: Lowell actually imaged Pluto in 1915, but failed to recognize it as a planet. However, Clyde Tombaugh of the Lowell Observatory correctly observed it in 1930.

It is important to keep in mind that this article published by Kaplan was not about Percival Lowell or Clyde Tombaugh. It was targeted against the ALMA astronomers on behalf of CalTec. This is why it was necessary to smear the work of astronomers of good reputation both living and dead.

Now let’s see how she attacked Clyde Tombaugh, the discoverer of the Planet Pluto., December 17, 2015
ALMA Astronomers Publish Planet X Papers Before USA Can Suppress

SARAH KAPLAN: “Pluto would become ‘Planet X’ a decade later, when a farm kid named Clyde Tombaugh working at the Flagstaff, Ariz., laboratory that Lowell founded came across a small moving speck in his own photos of the sky.”

YOWUSA: For the record. Tombaugh discovered a planet using a 13 inch telescope and was no “kid” when he did it. Calling him “a farm kid” is unwarranted and demeaning, but that is to be expected of someone who has no respect for achievement.

These are perfect examples of how powerful elites use the media to smear honorable men long in the grave. But they have other tactics as well, the most chilling of which is the threat of mysterious deaths.

The Good – Pic de Bure Astronomers and Dr. Robert Harrington

Have good men and women been murdered to suppress information on the topic of Planet X? Absolutely, and this is why I have no disagreements with professional astronomers who avoid the topic of Planet X like the plague for them it is a death topic.

On July 1, 1999, twenty people employed by an international astronomical observatory in the French Alps died when an American combat jet severed the cables on the gondola that was taking them to the observatory. Here is the “official” account:

The Guardian, July 2, 1999
20 Killed in Cable Car Disaster

Twenty people were killed in the French Alps yesterday when a cable car taking staff, cleaners and maintenance workers to an international astronomical observatory fell 80 metres (260ft) to the valley below.

There were no survivors in the accident, which happened soon after 7.30am about a mile outside the village of St-Etienne-en-Dévoluy, near Gap in south-eastern France. The privately operated cable car was on its way up to the Pic de Bure observatory.

What is the unofficial account? These twenty people were not maintenance workers. They were deep space astronomers and the day before this alleged accident they had announced that they would reveal information of profound importance to the whole world. So which is it? maintenance workers? or astronomers getting ready to leak a huge story?

Consider this, a military jet flies into restricted airspace where it did not belong, causing a “freak accident” resulting in 20 deaths, for which the pilot was held harmless in a white-wash.

World Socialist Web Site, March 6, 1999
US Pilot Who Killed Twenty on Ski Gondola Acquitted

Relatives of the victims and ordinary Italians reacted with outrage to the acquittal of an American Marine pilot whose plane, flying too low and faster than rules permitted, cut through a cable car line at an Italian ski resort last February and caused the deaths of 20 people. A US military jury at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina found Capt. Richard Ashby, 31, not guilty of involuntary homicide and manslaughter Thursday after a 17-day court martial.

Evidence produced at the trial indicated that Ashby, whose craft was supposed to stay at least 1,000 feet above the ground, struck the cable at about 365 feet (111 meters). At the moment of impact he was flying at 621 miles per hour (1,000 kph), well above the 517 miles per hour (832 kph) permitted.

At face value, the facts indicate that this was a targeted assassination with a political whitewash. However, this was not the only case of mysterious deaths in the astronomical community in the 90s.

Many Planet X researchers are convinced that U.S. Naval astronomer, Dr. Robert S. Harrington (October 21, 1942 – January 23, 1993) died a mysterious death to suppress public reporting of the observations made of Planet X made under his direction in a New Zealand observatory.

YOWUSA.COM, 22-May-2008
Planet X and the Mysterious Death of Dr. Robert Harrington

Planet X and the Mysterious Death of Dr. Robert HarringtonDr. Robert S. Harrington, the chief astronomer of the U.S. Naval Observatory, died before he could publicize the fact that Planet X is approaching our Solar System.

Many feel his death part of a cover-up, one in which government agencies quickly moved to conceal the most earth-shaking discovery in history. If so, the search for truth begins in New Zealand.

In 1991, Dr. Robert S. Harrington, the chief astronomer of the U.S. Naval Observatory, took a puny 8-inch telescope to Black Birch, New Zealand, one of the few viewing points on Earth optimal for sighting Planet X, which he definitively calculated to be approaching from below the ecliptic at an angle of 40 degrees.

Assuming that Harrington was not taken seriously by his colleagues, they would have viewed his death as unfortunate and nothing more. That was not the case, and this is why I find the University of Arkansas article of March 30, 2016, noted above to be of interest.

Specifically, it is interesting they would mention that Daniel Whitmire first posed the question of celestial objects playing a role in the extinction of dinosaurs in a 1985 Time magazine cover story. This is because Whitmire is a retired professor of astrophysics now working as a math instructor in the University of Arkansas Department of Mathematical Science.

Does this mean that his 1985 Time magazine cover story was completely unique and unprecedented? No, in fact, it was one of many brilliant articles and news accounts covered by mainstream media outlets at that same time.

This is what researcher and author Justin Braithwaite found when he conducted an exhaustive study of all of the mainstream media historical archives on Planet X from 1950 through to 1999., 18-March-2012
The Planet X Cover-up in the Mainstream Media

The Planet X Cover-up in the Mainstream MediaOn December 30th, 1983, NASA’s Chief Scientist of the Infra-Red Astronomical Satellite telescope (IRAS) announced that NASA had discovered Planet X.

Just one week after the story of Planet X was released, the magazine US News and World Report ran a story retracting the announcement and NASA has been silent ever since.

That didn’t stop Dr. Robert S. Harrington, who was the chief astronomer of the US Naval Observatory until his mysterious death in 1993.

By analyzing an extensive amount of publications relating to Planet X, in chronological order, not only does the cover up of Planet X become extraordinary, but one gains a unique perspective of the evolution of the Planet X discovery.

In researching the material for his article Justin Braithwaite created a statistical trend analysis for Planet X reporting in the mainstream media for a period of five decades. What his analysis showed with unequivocal and empirical data was that following the mysterious death of Robert Harrington, mainstream media coverage of Planet X fell silent. After 1993, the topic fell into a silent grave.

It is no wonder that it was so easy for the elites to suppress and whitewash their assassination of twenty deep space astronomers in Italy in 1999.

Now dear reader, does it make sense? Are you connecting the dots between elitist suppression, the cover-up of mysterious deaths, and the duplicity of mainstream media outlets?

There is no question about the effectiveness of smear campaigns and mysterious deaths. Equally effective is the use of trivialization as part of an integrated disinformation and suppression campaign.

The Good – Zecharia Sitchin, ALMA Astronomers

In the movie Gladiator (2000) the character Juba tells Maximus (Played by Russell Crowe), “You have a great name. He [Emperor Commodus] must kill your name before he kills you.”

As was portrayed in the film, all an Emperor had to do was to stab you in the rib cage with a dagger to gain the advantage. That is, assuming everything worked according to plan. Today there is a less risky tactic used by the elites, and I call it “The Three D’s” — deny, dismiss, and demean.

In this regard, we see this very tactic being used against Zecharia Sitchin by Planet 7X researcher, Gill Broussard as documented in my response video, Gill Broussard vs. Zecharia Sitchin.

In a documentary titled “Watchers Nine: Days of Darkness” with L.A. Marzulli, Broussard employs a classic disinformation attack strategy smear by unsubstantiated claim, which was just one of the many unsubstantiated claims made by Broussard.

My reason for producing the response video was to defend a man long in the grave. However, when Sitchin was alive and able to defend his work and his reputation, he did.

Case in point, Sitchin had just published his book, The Lost Book of Enki: Memoirs and Prophecies of an Extraterrestrial God, and was being falsely accused by disinformationists of being behind the 2003 Nibiru panic created by Nancy Leider and Mark Hazelwood. In response, he gave an exclusive interview to diplomatically state his objection to Leider and Hazelwood:

YOWUSA.COM, 23-February-02
Planet X Flyby In 2003 ZetaHysteria vs. ZetaFact

Planet X / Nibiru Flyby In 2003 ZetaHysteria vs. ZetaFactWe have been inundated with messages asking us why we are claiming that Planet X will fly past the Earth in 2003. We answer these messages with a simple request to show us where we make that claim in any of our articles. At the center of this 2003 maelstrom of controversy is the ZetaTalk site, which is becoming a popular phenomenon. As to the date itself, our greatest concern is that a non-event in 2003 will kill public interest in this vital issue.

For The Record

For the record folks, YOWUSA is reporting the claims of other sites such as ZetaTalk so that our readers can begin their own investigations. Our goal is to provide our readers with information that will help them to make an informed decision about this matter. We also urge our readers to avoid the pitfalls of using single sources and hasty conclusions.

The bottom line here is that the trivialization of good people (Percival Lowell, Clyde W. Tombaugh, and Zecharia Sitchin) who just happen to be dead, is a low-cost winning strategy for those seeking to destroy any hope for an intelligent public dialogue.

However, what happened to the very-much-alive ALMA astronomers last December was different. Here, CalTec astronomer Mike Brown used the Washington Post to trivialize the reputations of live colleagues with arrogant smears., December 17, 2015
ALMA Astronomers Publish Planet X Papers Before USA Can Suppress

With this in mind, read the following excerpts from Sarah Kaplan and Mike Brown and as you do, test each against “The Three D’s” — deny, dismiss and demean.

  • “ ‘The logical leaps are sort of astounding,’ he [Brown] said. ‘What they really saw they saw is a little blip and then six months later another little blip.’ ”
  • “The evidence that the researchers offer for their findings is too scanty, Brown said, and the probability that they could have stumbled across a huge, planet-like object in a tiny patch of sky is too small.”
  • “Finding Planet X in the small field of vision they studied with the ALMA telescope, he said, ‘would be like scooping a cup full of water from the ocean and pulling out the white whale.’ ”
  • “ ‘There’s so many reasons why they can’t possibly be correct,’ Brown said. ‘It’s embarrassing to the field.’ ”
  • “That’s because of Planet X’s ‘long and sordid history,’ as Brown put it.”
  • “ ‘For those of us who actually work on this, it’s embarrassing to even say you might be looking for these sort of things in the outer solar system because there have been so many crazy theories,’ Brown said.”
  • “you worry that when someone finally finds something that’s not crazy, people are going to say, ‘Oh, I heard that story three months ago and it’s not real.’ ”

Of all the smears in this article the one that is pure propaganda is, “Finding Planet X in the small field of vision they studied with the ALMA telescope, he [Mike Brown] said, ‘would be like scooping a cup full of water from the ocean and pulling out the white whale.’ ”

Why is Brown’s white whale bombast pure propaganda? Because ALMA is not only the largest observatory in the world, it is one that America propagandists cannot suppress or compromise.

Here, I must correct for the record a misstatement in that article.

As it turned out, the ALMA astronomers were able to be suppressed by propagandists, because shortly after publication of this vicious smear article by Washington Post reporter Sarah Kaplan, the ALMA astronomers withdrew their Planet X papers under duress. Mind you, not at the speed of science, but at the speed of political suppression. A sad thing to see indeed because the ALMA astronomers professionally pursued the truth an admirable manner.

This brings us back to the question, how do you know the good from the bad and the ugly? You know it by the use of smears, mysterious deaths, and trivialization.

What’s the point?

If you want to know who is seeking your death in the coming tribulation, you will know them by the manner in which they attack those who devote(d) their lives to the pursuit of truth. Now let’s move on to the bad.

The Bad

Having been in the field of Planet X research since 2002, the public perception has largely been what was called, “bread and circus.” To illustrate the point, let’s refer again to the movie Gladiator (2000). This time we see the characters Gracchus and Falco discussing how Emperor Commodus is winning the people of Rome to his side through the spilling of blood in the Coliseum:

Gracchus - Gladiator (2000)

Gracchus: Fear and wonder, a powerful combination.
Falco: You really think people are going to be seduced by that?
Gracchus: I think he knows what Rome is. Rome is the mob. Conjure magic for them and they’ll be distracted. Take away their freedom and still they’ll roar. The beating heart of Rome is not the marble of the senate, it’s the sand of the coliseum. He’ll bring them death and they will love him for it.

What I implore you, dear reader, to understand is that the topic of Planet X is not about the spilling of someone else’s blood in the Coliseum. In the coming tribulation, it will be your blood in the dust if your interest level is only that of “bread and circus,” because truth is always the first victim of malevolent disinformation.

Case in point, a Sun article reposted on the New York Post website. As you read it, look for three glaring errors in the first two paragraphs:

The New York Post, April 6, 2016
Newly discovered planet could destroy Earth any day now

Planet Nine — a new planet discovered at the edge of the solar system in January — has triggered comet showers that bomb the Earth’s surface, killing all life, says Daniel Whitmire, of the University of Louisiana.

Conspiracy theorists in the ’80s and ’90s previously claimed a red dwarf planet called Nibiru or Nemesis, which orbits too close to Earth every 36,000 years, was behind the events.

Nemesis or Nibiru was widely dismissed as crackpot pseudo-science — until Planet Nine was identified in January by the California Institute of Technology.

For those of you who looked to see the three glaring errors in this media report, you should have found the following:

Sun / New York Post Fact
“Daniel Whitmire, of the University of Louisiana” As noted above, should read “of the University of Arkansas”
“red dwarf planet” There are red dwarf stars, but no such thing as a red dwarf planet.
36,000 years 3,600 lunar years

This being said, the only noteworthy accurate statement in this article was “Nemesis or Nibiru was widely dismissed as crackpot pseudo-science — until Planet Nine was identified in January by the California Institute of Technology.”

The operative phrase here is, “crackpot pseudo-science,” because this has long been the trivialization approach used to keep the topic of Planet X out of the mainstream, and it is not the only one.

Another trivialization term is, “cult,” as evidenced by January 31, 2008 article published by David Morrison, NASA’s senior scientist at the NASA Astrobiology Institute.

YOWUSA.COM, 05-January-2008’s Response to the Nibiru Cult Post by David Morrison, NAI Senior Scientist for NASA

David Morrison, NASANibiru is simply a fake, a hoax, the result of a small religious cult that is unfortunately scaring lots of people with totally false stories.

On January 31, 2008, David Morrison, NASA’s senior scientist at the NASA Astrobiology Institute, NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, CA became a “cult expert” of sorts.

In response to an allegedly anonymous post on his “Ask an Astrobiologist” web page, Morrison effectively branded all legitimate Nibiru researchers as cultists intent on “scaring lots of people with totally false stories.”

The post is an obvious smear aimed at Zecharia Sitchin, author of The 12th Planet. It is therefore important to note that the first edition of Sitchin’s ground breaking work on Nibiru, as described in the Sumerian texts, was first copyrighted in 1976 decades before astronomers first discovered the existence of brown dwarf stars.

When I first read Morrison’s attack, I could see his point about a small religious cult. Without naming names, he was, of course referring to Nancy Lieder, publisher of Zetatalk. However, Morrison, who has now been refuted for his Nibiru hoax stance by recent developments, crossed a serious line. By not naming Lieder directly, he essentially branded every Planet X researcher in the field as a cultist.

For this reason, I wrote a stern reply because Morrison was setting me and other researchers up for a possible PATRIOT Act action. This is because the term PATRIOT is used here by our government as as misleading oxymoron (like military intelligence.) During the impeachment attempt to force President Clinton out of office there was a popular phrase, “You can indict a ham sandwich.” That was pre-PATRIOT.

In a post-PATRIOT world, all it would take to launch a witch hunt is for someone like a Morrison to level this kind of attack on any group of topic researchers. As in, the new and improved PATRIOT solution, “Now you can indict, slice, dice and puree any ham sandwich you please.”

No doubt someone at NASA read my response article because Morrison refrained from using such rhetoric again.

However, the threat of being labeled a pseudo-science cultist crackpot remains a clear and present danger for all independent Planet X researchers thanks to Nancy Lieder, publisher of Zetatalk, and Gill Broussard, publisher of Planet 7X.

The Bad – Nancy Lieder

ZetaHysteria vs. ZetaFactAs noted above, Nancy Leider and Mark Hazelwood created the Nibiru panic of 2003, and it wasn’t until after I published my first Planet X article in January 2002 that I became aware of this.

What I remember is that 2002 and 2003 were very sad years because of all of the emails we received from people seeking to validate the theories of Leider and Hazelwood. These people were ready to sell their homes and to flee to the hills. What was most difficult for us was to read their letters, which though written intelligently, oozed fear from every line.

As we stated at that time that it would, 2003 passed without incident. However, there was a downside to this non-event. It virtually killed interest in the topic of planet X until the super quake and tsunami of 2004. In 2005, I Interviewed Leider on my Cut to the Chase show, to determine the actual cause of the Nibiru panic of 2003. What she explained in her own words was a complete surprise. The Zetas, upon whom she depends for all of her information, intentionally lied to her:

Cut to the Chase Show #45, November 10, 2005
Nancy Lieder of — How the Meek Will Survive the Next Planet X Flyby

As our readers may recall, ran several “Zetahysteria” articles back in 2003 because we disagreed with Nancy Lieder of and the reckless scaremonger, Mark Hazlewood, that a Nibiru flyby would happen in 2003. Now, Nancy reveals the true story behind the 2003 Nibiru panic. It was planned by the Zetas (an extraterrestrial race), to provoke President Bush into a precipitous invasion of Iraq to secure the oil fields in advance of a Nibiru flyby. The answers to the obvious question “by whom?” and “to what end?” may surprise you. In another surprise twist, Nancy also explains how the Zetas are in virtually full agreement with another Cut to the Chase guest, Dark Star Author Andy Lloyd.

Nancy Leider - ZetatalkWhat you as the reader must understand about this revelation that Nancy was lied to by the Zetas is that it is impossible for anyone other than Nancy to communicate with her alleged source. There is no possibility of a scientific process in which her results can be tested through independent study. This, by definition, makes Nancy Leider of Zetalk a cult leader as per David Morrison of NASA.

Were Nancy Leider an honest cult leader, this would be a freedom of speech disagreement and nothing more. However, she is anything but honest, as was proven by her unprovoked 2013 Youtube attack video, in which she brought false witness against myself and several other credible researchers by accusing us of collaborating with the government to mislead the public.

Her lies were so atrocious, I was compelled to post a response video in which I included a clip of her explaining how the Zetas had intentionally lied to her in her own words. Response to

On February 18, 2013, Nancy Leider, publisher of the web site, posted an attack video on her channel.

Titled, Zeta Report Who Trust, Leider makes stern claims and attacks many fellow Planet X / Nibiru researchers.


Viewing this as a reckless and dangerous attack video, publisher, Marshall Masters takes Nancy to task, using her own words and rules.

Granted, Nancy has a large following. And no doubt many of them would be quick to say that she has changed her ways and that these statements of fact no longer apply to the Nancy of today. In response to that wishful thinking, I think author Anna Jacobs said it best, “Leopards don’t change their spots.”

As for me, in my opinion, Nancy is a dishonest cult leader.

That being said, if David Morrison of NASA were to repeat his attack of 2008 with the phrase “religious cult,” it would not apply to Nancy because there is nothing religious about talking to extraterrestrials. In other words, Zetatalk is a paranormal cult.

However, were Morrison’s 2008 attack phrase “religious cult” used today, it would be a spot-on description of Planet 7X publisher Gill Broussard.

The Bad – Gill Broussard

Gill P. Broussard - Planet 7XLike Nancy Lieder, Gill Broussard holds himself out to the public as the only reliable source of information on the topic of Planet X, aka Planet 7X.

Like Nancy Lieder, Gill Broussard’s work product uses misleading statements, invented jargon and cannot be independently verified.

Like Nancy Lieder, Gill Broussard attacks the work and reputations of other Planet X researchers with unsubstantiated claims and slurs.

Like Nancy Lieder, Gill Broussard has a specific target audience. For Lieder, it is extraterrestrial conspiracy buffs. For Broussard, it is Christians.

Until I viewed “Watchers Nine: Days of Darkness” with L.A. Marzulli, I had not paid much attention to Broussard. However, after watching him attack Zecharia Sitchin (July 11, 1920 to October 9, 2010) with unsubstantiated claims, I felt compelled to defend the reputation of a great man long in the grave.

If you visit Broussard’s Planet7X web site today, it is a lot slicker than when I first looked at it back in October of last year. On that previous site, Broussard used the tagline, “See How Science Confirms Biblical Research.” No doubt as a result of my November 7, 2015 response video, his new packager, 5 Talent Entertainment, removed that tagline.

Nonetheless, a lie is a lie, and because you’ve remove it doesn’t mean you un-lied yourself out of a dishonest statement. Therefore dear reader, if you watch my response video, you will see the real Broussard, which is far different from his new and improved packaging lie., Nov 7, 2015
Planet 7X Theories vs. Zecharia Sitchin’s Work

Planet 7X researcher, Gill Broussard, recently appeared in a documentary titled “Watchers Nine: Days of Darkness” with L.A. Marzulli. In that program, Gill Broussard challenged the work of Zecharia Sitchin, author of “The 12th Planet,” with several unsubstantiated claims.


This video is a ‘fair use’ response to Broussard’s unsubstantiated claims, made by Planet X researcher and investigator, Marshall Masters, publisher of the web site and several books on the topic. Gill Broussard is welcome to produce a response video to substantiate his currently unsubstantiated claims.

For the record, Broussard has never made any attempt to substantiate his claims as challenged in my response video. Rather, he has used the Pinlight Productions video in which he appears to further his position, and is now a packaged product. Not only was his old tagline removed by his new handlers, his earlier claims that he is an amateur astronomer and graphic designer have also been removed by his new handlers.

This now makes Broussard the Planet 7X Pied Piper of Christendom. This is because Christians love the way he talks to them in a language they understand, that being Bible verses. Still the same, despite the new and improved packaging he still selling the same old shtick, “See How Science Confirms Biblical Research.”

Aside from the fact that he makes it virtually impossible for anyone to independently verify his work, at face value, it fails the most basic of all smell tests, as was pointed out in a recent article:, January 29, 2016
Michael Brown and Planet Nine — What is the Real Planet X Agenda?

Michael Brown and Planet Nine — What is the Real Planet X Agenda?According to Broussard, the designation Planet 7X stands for an unobserved planet that is 7 times the diameter of Earth. Therefore, given that Earth is 7,926 miles in diameter, multiply that by 7 and you get 55,482 miles. To put this in perspective, Uranus is 31,763 miles in diameter, ergo Planet 7X is 1.75 times the size of Uranus.

Broussard further claims that the closest approach of Planet 7X to Earth is 0.7 LD. LD stands for lunar distance which is the average distance from the center of the Earth to the center of the Moon, or 238,900 miles (384,400 kilometers).

Therefore, the closest approach of Planet 7X to Earth (0.7 LD) equals 167,230 miles. Additionally, Brossard’s graphics for Planet 7X project an orbit of 232 – 360 years.

Therefore, what propositions are those trying to make sense of these graphics presented with?

  • The last flyby of Planet 7X occurred sometime between 1656 and 1784.
  • This period of time spans the Renaissance and the Scientific Revolution in Western Civilization — a period of time noted for extensive record-keeping.
  • The Gutenberg printing press was invented sometime around 1440.

What is the Planet 7X message? Given the absence of any historical records evidencing any form of catastrophic consequences for Earth resulting from the flyby of a massive object during the period 1656 and 1784, this object is not a direct threat, assuming there have been no deviations in the object’s orbit.

While explaining this as as orbital deviation may seem logical to the untrained mind at face value, it would nonetheless be just another baffling proposition. Remember, according to Broussard, Planet 7X is 1.75 times the size of Uranus and passes within 0.7LD of Earth.

Aside from the fact that every living soul on Earth would have seen such a massive object, what does Broussard’s Planet 7X theory actually imply? A good way to frame this answer is by examining the relationship between the Earth and the Moon.

The moon is 1.0 LD away from the Earth and the tidal gravitational force it brings to bear upon Earth is what causes our ocean tides. Without the moon, our seas would be as calm as lakes, but there is even more to that. Were the moon to suddenly disappear, the subsequent absence of its tidal gravitational force would cause the entire surface of Earth to sink by approximately 18 inches. The result of that would an E.L.E. (Extinction Level Event.)

In other words, had Planet 7X passed between the Earth and the moon sometime between 1656 and 1784 as Broussard maintains, you would not be reading this article because your ancestors would have perished in a Planet 7X E.L.E hundreds of years ago.

As a researcher, I have made a very concerted effort to validate Broussard’s claims that he is a graphic design artist and an amateur astronomer. No matter where I looked, all I could find were the same unsubstantiated claims.

But as I point out in my response video, what continues to concern me about this man is his use of incredibly expensive graphics graphics that would cost a publisher like myself tens of thousands of dollars, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars to produce.

The bottom line is that Broussard has a cult-like focus on Christian audiences with badly-conceived pseudoscience, and he refuses to explain how he came into possession of the elaborate graphics he uses. Nor will he prove that he himself has the ability to produce such graphics.

Consequently, the one question that haunts my mind about him is, who is paying for these very expensive graphics? And why? In other words, it’s time to follow the money because there is a lot at stake.

Look at it this way, the vast majority of humanity lives along shorelines, and in the Western world, the vast majority of these are Christians. Ergo, if you can sway Christians into surviving in place, they will drown like the lemmings led to the sea. A point I make in another recent article:, March 26, 2016
Planet X and Spiritual Christians

Matthew tells us, “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits…” Matt 7:15-16 (ESV)

The fruit of Broussard’s message is, unfortunately, that Planet 7 X comes around every few hundred years, so it’s no major threat. Nothing too terrible will happen. And lacking proper physical preparedness due to that message, many more people will die in the extreme cataclysms that are coming.

For the record, I have received a good deal of Christian hate mail for my exposés on Broussard. This vitriol will never force me to turn a blind eye to the truth, and what I see as a clear and present danger. Because while I may not be a Christian, I am a human being just like Christians, and I do believe in the value and sanctity of all human life.

The bottom line with Lieder and Broussard is that they are both cultists. Caveat emptor! That being said, they can’t even hold a candle to the ugly.

The Ugly

Let’s look at the rogues list up to now. Mike Brown of CalTec, Sarah Kaplan of The Washington Post, Nancy Leider of Zetatalk, and Broussard of Planet 7X. In terms of bread and circus in the bloody coliseum of Planet X, all these folks are bit players.

The real heavy hitters are the ones you never see. The ugly. That is until you focus your attention on the principal city-states of the West. The Crown in London, England, Vatican City in Rome, Italy, and the District of Columbia bordering the states of Maryland and Virginia in the USA.

Many still cling to the notion that our government would be honest with us about something as big as an impending flyby of Planet X that would cause tremendous cataclysm and loss of life. But let’s be frank, fewer and fewer Americans believe that we still have a government of the people, by the people, and for the people. Rather, America has become more like a corporation with allegiances to those who rule from the shadows.

It is these shadow rulers who set the policies and who determine who will be the first to fall when the Planet X tribulation begins. Likewise, they will slaughter, enslave and torment those who do survive. Why, because they have only one aim. To control all life on our planet, in service to themselves.

In furtherance of these aims, the Planet X system flyby will help them achieve their aims by dramatically reducing the global population. That is assuming the vast majority of the world’s population remains where they presently are, along coastlines, so that massive tsunamis from asteroid impacts and the pole shift will wipe them away.

Is this a Hollywood fantasy plot? Oh, if only it were. No, this is a very simple, yet horribly evil thing to imagine, and the sad truth is that the vast majority of those destined to perish this way are eagerly participating in this coming New World Order final solution. At the top of the list in the West are Christians, the single largest demographic group in harms way. Here is where there is a new hope in what is now playing out like a Star Wars plot.

The Ugly Empire and the New Jedi

Dear reader, here I must share with you a personal dread. Speaking to Christian audiences. Especially the ones that can’t find me on a checklist because I’m not a Christian. I’m a secular researcher and a spiritual person, and as such, I’m repelled by doctrine and dogma.

This is why I’ve gone out of my way over the years to avoid invitations to speak to Christian audiences, because for me, it’s like walking through a mine field of intolerance. You never know when you’ll hear “click click” (as in, stepping on a land mine) then fine yourself waking up in a field hospital singing soprano.

Darth SidiousHowever, last year things changed. Last October I received an interview request from Eric Gajewski, host of the TradCatKnight Youtube Channel. Eric is a Traditional Catholic and from his point of view, the Vatican is run by Darth Sidious, et al.

When I first read Eric’s email I began to hear an orchestra of “click click” landmine sounds in my head. At first, I was tempted to reply with a generic, “I must regretfully decline,” response, but a voice inside me said, “You must give this interview, these people need to know.”

“OK,” I said and I told Eric I’d do it. In later dialogues, Eric set boundaries on what we could talk about. Given that I’m a no-blinders kind of guy, that didn’t set well with me but the show must go on.  So on October 31 we recorded the interview and Eric posted it the next day.

TradCatKnight – 3rd Secret of Fatima: The Planet X System & The Coming Material Chastisement with Marshall Masters

The aftermath of CERN, the blood moon prophecy non-event and the Pope’s unremarkable visit to the USA in September of 2015 left many who had great expectations somewhat bewildered — especially those of the Christian faith.

To all things there is a purpose, and this “expectation stampede,” as Marshall calls it, was about preventing consensus through ensnarement and humiliation.


Yet, those in awareness like Eric Gajewski, host of the TradCatKnight Youtube Channel, refuse to be led astray. Eric is a traditional Catholic who believes in the coming material chastisement foretold in the 3rd secret of Fatima.

In this science-focused interview with Marshall a wide range of Planet X topics are discussed, including an explanation of how the days of darkness foretold in the 3rd secret of Fatima will come about.

You know the old saying about how bad news comes quickly the hate mail and vitriolic channel comments quickly came at both Eric and myself. You know the usual stuff, “How dare you have this man on and call yourself a Christian.”

Actually, I felt more sorry for Eric than myself, but the negative jabs didn’t matter to him. They all rolled off his back like water off a duck. He had an interview he liked as well as the vast majority of his audience. To date, the interview has received 47,630 views with 1,224 thumbs up and 47 thumbs down. OK, so I talked to a Catholic audience and survived, and Eric is a pretty cool guy.

Well at that point, I figured I’d done my bit for Christian audiences, and then last month I received an invitation from Steve Olson of the Wormwood Systems Observations (WSO) YouTube Channel. As I read his invitation. I thought, “OK, is it really time for another mine field?” Albeit, this time a Protestant one, but I was hearing those “click click” sounds in my head nonetheless.

Again a voice within me said, “You must give this interview. These people need to know.” Well, Steve got his interview.

Steve Olson, Mar 23, 2016
WSO Special Guest – Marshall Masters

To date, the interview has received 28,183 views with 408 thumbs up and 68 thumbs down. However, out of the gate, the comments and mail were caustic, to say the least. The heat came from checklist Christians, and they tore into both of us with as much intensity as a mob lynching or a shark feeding frenzy.

Like Eric last year, Steve never buckled under the pressure. He stood his ground and I was very touched by his show of strength, which inspired me to write a response article to one of the more vitriolic YouTube comments in an article titled, Planet X and Spiritual Christians.

What Eric and Steve taught me is that the vast majority of folks in their Christian audiences behave like true Christians and that giving them the message was the right thing after all.

Jedi KnightWhen we see the Ugly Empire with Darth Sidious, et al, at the helm, one wonders if there is just a sliver of a chance that some new Jedi Knights will come out of the woodwork to turn the tide against the Dark Side.

Before these two interviews, I would have said, “No way!”

Thanks to these two courageous and heroic young radio hosts, now I say, “Way!”

There is hope folks. Believe it!
