I have no idea what Michael E. Cook, a.k.a. Sheriff Mike, is up to these days (this screed, mentioned here, dates from 2000), but at least he used to be a member of APFN, American Patriots Friend Network, a stunningly insane group of Ron Paul supporters, conspiracy theorists, and militia guys, mostly filled with word salad, UFO sighting stories (and conspiracies), 9/11 conspiracies, pseudolaw, anti-environmentalism, and, well, every imaginable conspiracy, all framed in a beautifully TIME CUBE-like variety of fonts, colors, and random capitalization.
Given the uncertainty of his whereabouts, and the untimely death of Stefan Frederick Cook, one of Orly Taitz’s less than ideally hinged plaintiffs in one of her many birther lawsuits (Joe Kovacs and Chelsea Schilling thought Cook had a point, but then again Kovacs and Schilling write for the WND – Sean Hannity thought he had a point as well), this entry should have gone to the legendary conspiracy theorist William Cooper if he hadn’t passed away (as well) 10 years ago. I am confident that there exists conspiracy theories to the effect that he is still alive. Surely he was one of the models for James Corbett’s “The Corbett Report”, an “independent, listener-supported alternative news source” (podcasts, interviews, articles, videos) “about current events and suppressed history from an independent perspective” (i.e. batshit lunacy Corbett has made up). Corbett sure doesn’t get his news from “Rothschild Reuters”.
to the Big Brother police state, eugenics, geopolitics, the central banking fraud and more.” He is even writing on a book Reportage: Essays on the New World Order. A refreshing detail about Corbett is that he is generally not merely JAQ-ing off but firmly asserting some wonderfully insane, totally reality-independent claims. If you want an update on what is certainly not going on in Fukushima, you can read one of his many articles on the topic. Or did you know that the shooting of Osama bin Laden was a hoax? According to Corbett, there is consensus that bin Laden died years ago. He was not involved in 9/11 either, and the US government is in an intimate conspiracy with the bin Laden family (Obama himself ensured that many of the bin Laden family members were transported safely out of the US after 9/11 where they had been in various shady meetings with American government figures). See also this and this on 9/11 conspiracy bullshit.
Diagnosis: Fairly typical kook – his webdesign is better than most conspiracy maniacs’, his writing skills less so – and pretty ardent. Completely impervious to truth.
