    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.

  • 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.

    Indira Singh has correctly characterized Michael as “the information lynch-pin” for serious researchers and activists. Some of our most groundbreaking work originated with leads that Michael gave us. Michael was the first person to identify that racist fifth column within the Minute Men and its connections to the power elite. Michael was the first person to identify important personages like William Sims Bainbridge, a member of the National Science Foundation and an open advocate of religious engineering and techno-eugenics (i.e., Transhumanism). Michael was the first person to identify the connections between the infamous Process Church and the Best Friends Animal Shelter.

    In every one of the aforementioned instances, Michael commissioned Paul and I to conduct investigations, which invariably led to some truly explosive revelations. We owe some of our best work to Michael. In this sense, Michael was actually a co-author of many of our articles and our book, The Ascendancy of the Scientific Dictatorship. We made sure to give Michael due credit in the expanded, revised edition of that book.

    In fact, Paul and I had discussed plans with Michael to actually collaborate on a book over the intelligence community’s connection to the UFO phenomenon. Michael had had extensive experience with the field of Ufology and had come to know many of its more questionable personalities. Michael identified a distinctly occult thread of thought running through the field, along with a continuity of CIA involvement in conjunction with significant sightings. Paul and I eventually published the articles “Alien Smokescreen” and “MJ-12: The Technocratic Thread,” which Michael read and appreciated immensely. We did some interviews over the topics covered in those articles, which cemented Michael’s conviction that a joint writing project with us would be a worthwhile endeavor.

    In addition to this book project, we were collaborating with Michael on a documentary over the Bush Administration’s connection to the very Islamofacists that it claimed to be fighting. Using this topic as a conceptual segue, we were going to expand our examination to the technocratic restructuring of the world, a subject that our research has consistently reiterated.

    Unfortunately, Michael’s passing leaves these projects suspended in a limbo of sorts. Presently, there are no immediate plans to pursue these endeavors further. There is only grief for the loss of a friend.

    Yes, Michael was more than just another professional associate. He was a friend. He was one of our best friends. We loved him like family. I know that this statement may sound somewhat cliched, but I don’t care. It is the truth.

    I remember laughing and joking with Michael off the air or between commercial breaks. We’d just talk about life and personal experiences. While the nature of the topics we examined together was extremely dark, we never allowed the darkness to creep into our hearts. That’s an extremely difficult thing to do in this field, where you continually learn of corruption and evil. The temptation to become cynical and jaded is ever-present, but Michael never allowed himself to sink into nihilism.

    One particular episode remains prevalent for me. We were doing an interview over my article, “Manipulating Matter” and received a phone call from somebody in a taxi cab. The guy was obviously drunk and was attempting to steer the discussion down a tangential path. He started to spewing conspiracy myths designed to affirm religious and ethnic bigotry. Michael let the fella talk, then cut the connection and gave the audience a disclaimer about the content of the caller’s message… more specifically, that it was dead wrong.

    After going to break, Michael chuckled to me, “Well, that was a hard act to follow!”

    We laughed, came back from commercial break, and finished the interview. When the episode concluded, Michael was elated.

    “That’s what it’s all about,” he said with an apparent sense of contentment.

    I could almost see his smile, even though I was on a telephone thousands of miles away.

    When we did our expose’ over the racist fifth column within the Minute Men movement, Michael received the brunt of the attacks. Michael knew the verbal assault was on the way, but what was especially disheartening about the attacks was the fact that a majority of them emanated from the so-called “Patriot community.” Still, Michael stuck to his guns and refused to allow himself to be swayed by petty allegations of “undermining the movement.”

    We contributed an electronic copy of our book to Michael in hopes of generating sufficient revenue to cover broadcasting costs. In the latter months of Michael’s life, his frustration with this burden became increasingly transparent. Still, like a true soldier, he continued to fight.

    Perhaps, with his passing, people will begin to recognize the importance of Michael’s work. Many of the prognostications that Michael made have come to pass. As history bears out Michael’s contentions, maybe audiences will discover the significance of what he had to say.

    Our collaboration with Michael has been one of the most fruitful enterprises that we have ever known. When we worked with Michael, we would go places that we never even imagined.

    Michael once told us, “Together, we are a well-oiled machine driving into battle.”

    Paul and I were proud to be part of that machine.

    Michael was a Christian. So, we all know where he is now. I’m sure that he couldn’t be happier. For those of us who remain on this side of existence, however, there is the unavoidable pain of bereavement.

    But, I trust the Lord and I hold onto His promise. The day is coming when the “well-oiled machine” will be reassembled.

    God bless you, Michael Corbin. I’ll see you again.

    Phillip D. Collins
