    Commenting has been turned off this site, which is now in passive mode.

    This "Memorial" was orginally set up ONLY to "INFORM" the world of Mike's passing: there was a tremendous mess regarding access to Mike's massive contact list after he suddenly passed away. There were few options to inform listeners, fans, and people who worked with him.

    This intent grew to urgently REQUEST FUNDS for his FUNERAL and BURIAL be donated to an account managed by his family of origin.

    This site was SUPPOSED TO BE SHUT DOWN after his burial.

    HOWEVER:
    People who loaned the family money for Mike's funeral etc. expected to get repaid from the fund. They have not yet been repaid. Furthermore, assets loaned to Mike and only Mike through various "gentlemen's agreements", have been stolen. Information assets entrusted to Mike's Filomax organization and only Mike have also been stolen.

    This site remains up, in static form, since in addition to all that, THERE ARE STILL UNANSWERED QUESTIONS wrt. Mike's passing.
    The exploration of these UNANSWERED QUESTIONS quickly became a controversial part of this site.

    I was not sure I wanted those questions raised AT THIS SITE, but was too busy trying to find out what had transpired before potential "cover stories", if any indeed existed, could gel.

    All that material will be moved elsewhere as new developments are STILL continuing on that front.

    Re-use of materials and articles posted here - at for-profit sites - in a way that violates US copyright laws and WITHOUT PRIOR PERMISSION IN WRITING is prohibited.

    “The right thing”, according to Michael

    Posted by rememberingmichael on April 2, 2008

    Michael could be counted on to do the right thing on the big issues. Those of us who worked with him knew he would protect our sources and materials with his life.

    Michael did or could not take care of the little things as much as we would have liked, and we tried to shore him up there wherever we could, when we knew about it.

    Michael was grieved that “some people out there” were copying his work, without his permission, including his production elements. He always said to me: “all they had to do was ask”.

    When I found out about his sudden death, I was in the middle of a project, trying to find answers to what happened to Mike, long distance to boot, and making arrangements to go to Denver for the funeral.

    Because no one had Mike’s complete phone list, communicating information about his death was a huge task, and I knew a website would help. In my opinion as an investigator, I knew the circumstances of his sudden death were odd, and if someone didn’t FOCUS ON THAT ASAP, THE TRAIL WOULD GO COLD.

    In Memory of Michael

    Posted by rememberingmichael on March 29, 2008


    I found myself thinking of a sentence from the Credits section of Fatal Rebirth (forgive the source), and a paragraph from the Preface which also seems appropriate. In the Credits where I thank Michael and other radio hosts for having on the air so often to talk about the results of my investigations into crimes by government agencies and other power brokers, to include an errant and largely controlled media:

    “Truth means nothing if no one hears it.”

    Getting people to hear the truth was clearly Michael’s most fervent wish, his most ambitious goal, and his loftiest achievement: he helped tens of millions of people hear the truth that had otherwise been deliberately kept from them by professional disinformationalists. He literally spent all of himself and his financial resources toward this task. It was not a labor for profit, but of love of truth. It was not a hobby, an avocation, or even a vocation, it was an obsession for truth. It was not a part time job, or even a full time job, it was an every-waking-moment dedication to the truth.

    And what is the value of truth, and of getting people to hear it? I offer this from the Preface of Fatal Rebirth:


    “Truth cannot live on a diet of secrets, withering within a web of entangled lies. Freedom cannot live on a diet of lies, in the end sur-rendering to the veil of their oppression. The human spirit cannot live on a diet of oppression, being subservient against the will to that un-checked evil. God, as truth incarnate, will not long let stand a world devoted to such evils. Therefore, let us have the truth and freedom our spirits require… or let us die seeking these things, for without them, we shall surely and justly perish in an evil world.”


    Michael was a torch bearer who led many people through the darkness on the path to truth. For this reason, We The People, have lost a great and beautiful human being. More than that, we may have lost the truth itself.


    But one truth remains: we will miss Michael Corbin. May God speed him to the fountainhead of all truth, where he should feel right at home.

    I would like to say thank you to Michael for all of his wonderful work and terrific interviews over the years. What a breathe and depth of knowledge he brought to so many issues. His empathy and compassion to people who have been on the wrong side of life and been the victims of a world system separated from GOD, was and remains a testament to a character with a rich sense of love and concern for others. His was a calling to make things right. I always felt as though he was deeply involved in the subject matter he was presenting to his audience.

    God endows all of us with various gifts and talents which are to be used for HIS glory and honor and for the betterment of others. Michael found his calling and in so doing found is voice. Though his earthly voice has been stilled, his work and body of work lives on. Many people will listen to his archives and their eyes and minds will be opened to the deeper realities enveloping us. Thus he will continue to bless others, be a blessing and be blessed for eternity for his faithful service.

    While others count what is done to make the world a better place and to stand for truth and justice a little thing, our heavenly Father counts it as a wonderful token of our love. May we be found fulfilling our calling and be told, “Well done thy good and faithful servant…”

    Thank you Michael.

    I and all of your listeners love you and will miss your wonderful voice even if we never saw you face to face!

    The Passing of a Legend — Goodbye, Michael Corbin

    Corbin at Mic

    By SHARON K. GILBERT March 19, 2008

    THIS is a very dark time for listeners of A Closer Look with Michael Corbin for a great light has gone out. Tuesday afternoon, March 18, 2008, legendary radio host Michael Corbin, passed away in Denver, Colorado, following a massive stroke that had left him in a coma since Monday.

    Corbin might well be called the father of alternative news, both in radio and on the internet. Beginning in the 1980s with FIDONet, Corbin refused to accept mainstream media spin, choosing instead to dig into first hand accounts from news-watchers all over the world. It was through FIDOnet, that Corbin met Indira Singh; and it was through Singh that Derek and I grew to know and appreciate Corbin’s work.

    Through FIDONet, followed by ParaNet BBS and the ParaNet Continuum Radio Program (which eventually became ‘A Closer Look’ in 2002), Corbin connected disturbing dots and revealed hidden truths not only about UFO conspiracies but also about government conspiracies — as well as the spiritual battle interweaving both.

    Phillip D. Collins Remembers Michael

    Posted by rememberingmichael on March 22, 2008

    Michael Corbin was the first radio talk show host to provide Paul and I with a platform. He was the first person to appreciate our research and the potentially elucidating trajectories that we were following. He wasn’t concerned with commercial profitability, novelty, or trends. He was concerned with the value of the information that he was sharing with the public. His show wasn’t one endless infomercial, peddling sensationalistic videos and overpriced water filters. Instead, it was a road map for genuinely concerned activists and intellectually honest researchers. A Closer Look was a national treasure and the airwaves will be far less informative without Michael and his outstanding program. Read the rest of this entry »

    Paul Collins Remembers Michael

    Posted by rememberingmichael on March 21, 2008

    I remember when The Hidden Face of Terrorism was first published. The book came out looking really bad. In fact, it was terrible. The front cover did not reflect my vision at all and the interior format was like a very bad school report. But Michael didn’t see all that. He considered the substance and understood that the book’s message was what was important. He was the first radio talk show host who gave me an opportunity to get the word out. But that’s not all. What started off as a simple interview concerning terrorism as a tool of social engineering turned into a six year collaboration that turned over a lot of rocks and exposed aspects of the deep political world that not even some of the most informed people know about.

    Michael Corbin: A Tireless Crusader for Truth

    Posted by rememberingmichael on March 21, 2008

    Corbin at Mic

    Dear Friends,

    The passing of Michael Corbin at the age of 52 from a massive stroke on March 18, 2008 has deeply saddened me. Michael was a dear friend and mentor who always took the time to help others. Michael was always there for me through thick and thin and I will greatly miss his wise counsel, humor and kind attention.

    As a professional Michael was a pioneer in internet news reporting and web broadcasting. Paranormal themes accented his work in the 80s and 90s but the political and economic turmoil of the new millennium caused Michael to turn his many skills on the problem of global elites and their unjust control of the world’s political, economic and religious institutions.

    In Memory of Michael Corbin, Who Kept Watch, Held The Light.

    Posted by rememberingmichael on March 20, 2008

    Corbin at Mic

    “Once to every man and nation comes a moment to decide,

    In the strife of Truth and Falsehood, for the good or evil side;

    Some great cause, God’s new Messiah offering each the bloom or blight,

    And the choice goes by forever `twixt that darkness and that light.

    Though the cause of evil prosper, yet `tis truth alone is strong

    Though her portions be the scaffold, and upon the throne be wrong

    Yet that scaffold sways the future, and behind the dim unknown

    Standeth God within the shadow, keeping watch above his own.
    – James Russell Lowell (1819 – 1891)

    By Indira Singh
