Why Mark Passio is just another rabbit hole

with 13 comments

mark passioIn the fall of 2012, I was asked to check out an emerging conspiracy researcher named Mark Passio, former member of the Church of Satan, who claimed to have uncovered the secret mind control formulas being employed by the Illuminati to secretly manipulate the world. I couldn’t make it through to the end of his extremely long, extremely lightweight video simply because Passio is so full of crap, starting with his acknowledgements towards the “masters” who taught him most of everything he knows, especially David Icke, an obvious fraud and professional disinfo artist. Icke pretends the world is controlled by shape-shifting aliens from another dimension? And somehow, thousands are hookwinked into believing this transparent nonsense? Obviously Passio is one of Icke’s hoodwinked true believers.

One thing I pointed out a year and a half ago is Passio’s four major influences are all tied to the UFO community, a meme likely orchestrated as an intel rabbit hole op. UFO’s have been used as cover during MKULTRA brainwashing experiments, something done to hide the identity of the real perpetrators doing the brainwashing, while providing a backstop no serious person would swallow. When you start accepting the tall tale that powerful aliens are among us, you immediately lose all credibility in the real world and pretty soon will be rendered unable to effectively investigate anything because you’re too busy looking for little green men from outer space.

DisinfoPoster_edited-1And that is precisely where intel wants to lead potential citizen researchers. What they don’t want are serious investigations into 9/11 that involve tracking real forensic evidence into Saudi Arabia and Pakistan to uncover CIA, MI6 and Mossad links to the event.

The first person who questioned my original blog of Passio was a credible researcher and publisher who complained I’d dragged UFO’s into the conversation, while Passio didn’t mention UFOs in his original videos. I predicted that would soon change, based solely on Passio’s source material.

You see, Passio’s “research” is built on the backs of notorious frauds and disinfo artists, which is why I can dismiss it so easily. You cannot construct anything real based on “research” of people like David Icke and expect anything but bullshit to emerge the other end, because Icke is pushing total bullshit. Yes, I know some of the stuff Icke says is real, like there really is a conspiracy of power at the center of the banking industry. That’s obvious. But it’s not being run by aliens from outer space. That’s a hoodwink rabbit hole that serves only to protect the perpetrators by placing a false mirror over them. If you’re busy looking for shape-shifting aliens, you can look for a long time, because there aren’t any, and if there were, they would have killed people like Icke and Passio a long time ago.

Meanwhile, that original post I wrote on Passio has become one of my most popular blogs, I guess because I’m one of the few people that exposes his fraud? And dozens of people keep trying to leave insulting comments on it, but, of course, I seldom approve those nasty remarks since I believe most of the comments are planted by Passio’s internet sock puppets. Of course, their biggest complaint is I never bothered to watch nine or ten hours of boring Passio video, so how can I dismiss his theories?  For those who didn’t believe my prediction Passio would soon be pushing “aliens are here,” check out this recent comment I found on his website:

“Mark links ancient accounts of extraterrestrial visitation to our planet with the manifestation of the psychological conditions in which the human species currently finds itself. Questions explored include: Were we actually created by non-human entities as a hybrid slave species? Did our extraterrestrial “parents” inadvertently create a slew of genetic anomalies in the human species, including primary psychopathy, as a result of their imprecise genetic modifications? Did our extraterrestrial forbearers provide to us our systems of government, money, and religion; and to what ends did they do so? What effect did our “cosmic parents” sudden disappearance have upon the collective human psyche? What does humanity need to understand to rectify the deeply-seated psychological trauma that it has amassed over eons, as a direct result of our troubled origins?”

I can assure you none of these questions matter and I don’t need to pay $10 to attend this lecture to know everything in it is bunk. The only point of material like this is to lead people into a rabbit hole and make them feel powerless to control anything, because how could you affect a system being run by all powerful aliens? In truth, Passio knows little about the real oligarchy that runs the Central Banks, because if he did, he’d have real info involving real people to share, and not just a bunch of hocus pocus nonsense based on imaginary evidence.

So free your mind from this crap and climb out of the rabbit hole and start dealing with reality. It’s a lot more interesting than this garbage.

Of course, you could prove me wrong by just providing some real forensic evidence of an alien invasion. But please, no pictures of gargoyles, dragons or reptiles from ancient cultures, because that sort of stuff doesn’t prove anything. Just post a link to some video of a real shape-shifting alien in action and if the video is authentic, I will take back everything I’ve said. And if what Icke says is true, that footage should not be hard to locate. After all, Icke claims to have seen these shape-shifters many times before. And if that’s true others must be seeing them as well. So how hard is it to whip out a smart phone and shoot some video? And why hasn’t that video emerged after all these years? And please, don’t bother sharing that ridiculous video of Justin Beiber’s snake eyes. Justin is neither an alien nor a member of the Illuminati, because if he was, he wouldn’t have to take shit from anyone, and that is obviously not the case.

  1. Steven, i have been aware mark’s work for a couple months now and i was drawn to this page b/c i have been trying to expand my perspective of mark, trying to find the “bad” things or explanation of what exactly his “game” is, and this is one of the only web pages i can find that attempts to do that. Saying that, i agree with mark’s view about how mind control works (fear and how it affects the balance of our neo-cortex), how freedom works (we have a current system of dominators and order-followers, masters and slaves), and his teachings of natural law in general. I see mark as someone trying to spread knowledge and truth to all, teaching us to search for ourselves for answers (especially regarding right and wrong). That is the main thing i get from mark and i don’t see how this has a negative impact. Again, that is why i am here looking for answers, i don’t see a negative to what mark is teaching yet i wonder, so if you could please explain or give your insight as to what is “really” going on here that would be great. I feel your article doesn’t really do it for me mainly because you admit you are not very familiar with his work and your main argument is that “Passio’s “research” is built on the backs of notorious frauds and disinfo artists, which is why [you] can dismiss it so easily.” I don’t think this is completely fair, Mark even states that he doesn’t endorse 100% of what his sources believe. I don’t recall him “endorsing” aliens or anything of the sort, never even heard him mention shape-shifters. He stated that he agrees with a lot of Icke’s work yet doesn’t agree totally with him, especially with the latter of his work. For instance, take someone you love and trust dearly, you will not agree on 100% of everything but you still love and trust them, also if you believe you and someone else DO agree on 100% of everything, does that mean that everything they say for the rest of their life is true? People change, i think we can agree on that, so you cannot believe everything, yet what resonates as truth to you. So what is true? That is what i am searching for. So, again, a lot of what mark teaches resonates as true to me, maybe i’m missing something, and i hope you can explain or enlighten me as to what is really going on, b/c all i get is him spreading knowledge, truth, freedom, and wisdom, through our thoughts and actions. I feel you may be on to something but like i said, completely dismissing HIM entirely (and not what he’s teaching) is not fair in my opinion, and also the argument that he is promoting the alien agenda has no substance to it (mainly b/c he doesn’t really talk about aliens and when he does its not in a way that would bring about fear of them). I am indeed NOT a sock puppet to mark or anyone for that matter, just to be clear. I just want to see truth and you may be on to something, please enlighten me. Thanks for your time Steven, I am a fan of your contributions to humanity and I am very interesting in your response to my opinion.

    • Check Passio’s website and you’ll find ancient aliens are what he’s pushing right now. The river of disinfo created by intel is embellished and decorated by each new generation, mostly by mind control stooges and not paid agents. Do you think David Icke is a real researcher? Or Alex Jones? If not, who are the major fountains of disinfo right now, because you know big money will always keep their ops in the forefront? If you truly want to study this apparatus, you’d be far better off identifying and investigating the disinfo ops. For example, when 9/11 happened, the first thing to go out on the internet was: no plane at the Pentagon, then came no planes anywhere. These memes were seeded by intel to create a rabbit hole. It was most likely a drone at the Pentagon painted to look like a plane. The major disinfo meme going on right now is to read the mass media, especially blockbuster movies, for signs of mind control ops. This is simply ridiculous and I feel sorry for people who swallow this sort of garbage. For decades they have been painting Aleister Crowley as the Grandmaster of the Illuminati. Crowley died in poverty and practically friendless. Had he truly been the inspiration behind the spiritual enlightenment of the real Illuminati, Crowley would have had a most comfortable death and glorious funeral at Illuminati expense. I do not subscribe to any religion, unlike Passio, and I have not been drawn into any paradigm but my own. You can focus on non-violence and peace and manifesting that energy, or you can amplify fear and paranoia like the mainstream. Our kids and our culture are being driven to the dark side, this is obvious, and Passio is part of that process, not a solution against it. He is not tearing down the walls of disinfo, but putting aluminum siding on them.

  2. I find your work on Passio, Icke, and other such figures to be eye-opening. I’m wondering if you know anything about a man named Thomas Sheridan, who is best known for his work on psychopaths and pop culture. While I liked this man’s work in the beginning, I feel as if he has been going off the deep end a bit in his later interviews and works. Do you know who I’m talking about, and if so, what is your opinion about him? He has a lot of videos on YouTube.

    • Don’t know him, but most fakes start out with solid info before diving off the deep end….

      • Started out w/ solid info, from a former Satanist?? Sounds like he started in the deep end and dropped off the waterfall!😀 Satanism and Christianity and all the Judeo-Christian, Islamic cults are just that, brainwashing mechanisms of social control, i.e. brainwashing that Mark portends and pretends, to know everything about. He’s just as phony as a Christian pastor and prob. makes a lot more money for his talks than he leads on.

        However, it seems there could be a deeper agenda for his talks, that could very well have to do with a conspiracy of sorts, that spreads disinformation and fear, the usual MO. “Watch out for them there women! They want to take your free-dumb away!” sheeze! Yeah, right, WE’re the ones who are the major geo-political military advisers, We’re in control of the major corporate industrial complex, and WE’re the ones holding back progress to stop global warming for the sake of mining and big oil cos. We’re the ones who are responsible for most the gun violence and domestic violence. We’re such sexist pigs! God, save me from your satanists too please!! BTW, just about a week ago, a man blew his wife’s head off and then killed himself here due to a domestic dispute in good ole misogyny mecca Montana. I’m certain she convinced him to do it!! Gimme a break!! This is not an unusual event around here!

        Don’t get me wrong, I love men, sometimes more than my own gender, but pig-headed, dis-informing assholes like Mark piss me off!! Then there’s the dumbshits in my own gender who fall for this crap!! Oh, don’t get me started! lol! OK, ok, I’m cool. 😀

  3. Don’t you understand by now that a perfect information source simply does not exist? Hasn’t 9/11 taught you that? I’ve listened to a lot of Mark Passio, and very little of it was about aliens. I do not agree with his alien views either, but that does NOT automatically allow me to handwave away everything else he says as you have done here. Have you seen his presentation about the occult symbology of 9/11? It is BY FAR the best presentation I have ever seen on the subject. It’s on Youtube, and I highly recommend that you watch it. Closing your mind to this presentation because you’ve decided it can’t be true is absolute folly.
    And just because he has subscribed to views you find illogical, is NOT sufficient evidence to accuse him of being paid disinfo! That type of paranoic world-view is more harmful than the belief that life exists outside this planet. Just pat yourself on the back for being clever enough to discern between fact and fantasy, and move on with your life. Bitching in a blog about other activists is highly counter-productive to say the least. It’s like a fist-fight in the locker-room before a football game. Save that venom for the actual enemy.

    • I’m not bitchin’ about anything. I am exposing disinfo. When people try to scare you with religion or magic (they are the same thing) it is always a hoodwink. Passio is following the trail of disinfo artists, knowingly or unknowingly, he is part of the problem and not the solution. If you don’t like my opinions, don’t read them.

  4. Thank you Steven for your work in covering Mark Passio. I have been a LaVey Satanist for a long time and when I listened to Mark Passio saying that the Church Of Satan exists to recruit psychopaths into power I started to dismiss him as a con. I have never seen or heard anyone being approached by another Satanist being given privilege to become powerful. Nor only that, Mark Passio also rants about the eugenic agenda within Satanism. There is nothing in the Satanic Bible that promotes one race instead of others. I have not even seen that ideology being practiced among Satanists. I think Mark Passio takes advantage of the fact that he was once a member of the Church Of Satan to gain credibility and the fact that many people would not even bother with leaning or getting involved with Satanism gives him a lot of advantage.

  5. Passio is a creep, a hairy little creep, lost in a world of delusion, wishing that he could muster an original thought. I feel for the lives and families he has destroyed with his bullshit.


    May 24, 2015 at 10:37 pm

  6. I have tried to watch his 7 hour video, but in the first ten minutes I got the feeling he is a cult leader or an aspiring one.

    Stating; toss aside all your personal filters and thoughts, just take in the information.
    This program has been made to be viewed in it’s entirety. Not in chunks. As if it is meant to numb and overwhelm you, as to reprogram the bullshit in your head with his bullshit.
    I don’t trust him, or all persons that try and let people cast aside their scepticism.

  7. hi….wish i had the capacity to start a stats website to bypass all the bitchin and get closer to actual truth….but i guess i’ll leave that to persons possibly working in the field of statistics or and to that group of ppl called graduates from universites that offer those courses…………….thanx

  8. Passio is full of BS indeed. Starts out kind of sincerely, then proceeds to teach occult ideas instead of debunking them as promised. Besides the ‘occult’ that he thinks he ‘explains’ has already been available through numerous publications; anyone who wanted to get acquainted with those phony ideas could have done so on their own. What Passio does not do – is what he promises he will – demystifies the occult. He instead talks about the Occult as if it were relevant. For most critically minded people a switch goes off fairly early into Passio’s presentation and the words oh b*sh* appear. You’d expect Passio to explain the delusions of the occult teachings; instead he teaches what he said he rejects. Some of us are immune to neuro linguistic programming (NLP) techniques, and have aversion to manipulation. We expect logic and arguments, not a long lecture that someone asks us to listen to. Yet another rabbit hole.

  9. Disturbingly funny that “ex-satanist” Passio has never denounced the Church of Satan or Lucifer in any of his “lectures”. Instead, he spews terms such as “reptilian brain”, “magic”, “vibration of love”, “expanded consciousness”, “unified conscience of dominion” (whatever that is) and other large quantities of new age bullsh!t… a substitute for satanism. His creepy cult of followers and defenders is even more disturbing.

    Passio also appears to have severe anger management issues if you watch the video of his “arrest” and subsequent video of his reaction to the “arrest”. Quite disconcerting. His pent-up anger is evidenced by the manner in which he speaks in clipped tones. Must he always remind everyone that “he’s a man!”… Napoleon complex?
