Welcome to a new and exciting series presenting you with a representative sample of American Loons from A-Z!
This blog will be updated frequently until we have a full collection of influential American Loons, assembled nicely in alphabetical order. Credit for all of the blog posts you will read after this one belongs entirely to Fredrik Haraldsen, with only minor occasional edits and additions (photos, etc) by me. I am merely posting these excellent entries on his behalf (and of course with his permission). Enjoy!

I've got one you have to throw in there that I just stumbled across it yesterday. Well, to tell the truth, I heard about it months ago, but stumbled across it while having a series of debates regarding global warming with a family member. If you want to see crazy turned into an art form, watch Jesse Ventura in his show "Conspiracy Theory." Before watching this show, I might have shown limited appreciation and some defense of attacks on him for being a professional wrestler, but after watching him tackle and endorse conspiracies ranging from 9/11 to Global Warming, it's obviously he's both a loon, and an American of some influence.ReplyDelete
Thanks for that tip Luke, we'll definitely keep him in mind when we make it to the "V's".ReplyDelete
My dear ignorant anonymous and raptor of public philosophy, did you have enough time this years to learn about Jesse and add yourselves to this list!?! Together of course with the local G.D.!Delete
Luke Skywalker and a Raptor might not like the truth, to be displayed publicly here but it is essential that you got the message! But I guess your are not for Yoda but perhaps just for Chewbacca!Delete
Can you add Adam 'Dreamhealer' ?ReplyDelete
Loons representative of WHAT? Without Algore, this has got to be the normal statist liberal hit page.ReplyDelete
I ASSUME Tipster is a poe :-)?ReplyDelete
I just found this site and enjoyed myself immensely traipsing thru the looniverse.ReplyDelete
Ah, so many nutbags, so little time ....
Thanks for all your good work.
sooooooooooooo in regard to some people you addressed in this blog... I see you forgot David Icke :) Interesting...ReplyDelete
And where are Buddha, Ghandi, Martin Luther King, Michael Jackson, a good fella Jesus Christ (not that religious bastard) who promoted interconnectedness of us all, love etc...? Where are they? Yes I know this is so called ˝encyclopedia˝ of American Loons, but hey all hose aforementioned affected the world, not only one country :)
Where is president Kennedy? :) He was also a loon, yeah, trying to save the worlds from the usurpers who rule over us all today :) SO yeah he probably was a loon :)
I hope you will include all those so I can sit down and laugh myself insane some day :)
David Icke is a loon but not American. I agree with Tipster though, if you're creating an American loon blog A-Z, Al Gore should be included.ReplyDelete
Curious why someone from Oslo Norway attending Uni in Miami FL, USA would diligently document American lunacy for us. Yours is a welcome and credible effort to be sure - and timely entries, no less. Are you in politics? Journalism?ReplyDelete
As for David Icke - he may not be American but his bread and butter is fomenting galactic conspiracies, when he is not screeding America, so I'd say he qualifies.
Consider adding Michael Ruppert, Wayne Madsen, Alex Constantine, the WebFairy whoever she is...
Thanks for the encyclopedia, it's very handy.
I was looking for more info on Shepard Ambellas, founder of Intellihub, formerly The Intel Hub. Very difficult to find out anything about his site. They have Google-bombed it so much that nothing but their "articles" or videos can be found.ReplyDelete
This site is the largest spreader of conspiracy theories I have ever seen.
please do David Friedman, the son of milton friedmanReplyDelete
Please do Steven Greer and Miles Mathis.ReplyDelete
I thought I'd read the biggest and best in disinformation, but this one's right up there. Cass Sunnstein loves you.ReplyDelete
Just found your site searching for info on Terri Leo. Love it!ReplyDelete
You forgot the looney tuner, Chris Hedges!!!ReplyDelete
Chuck and Lency Spezzano and their "Psychology of Vision" personality cult deserve an entry, I would ventureReplyDelete
Do I perceive that you consider anyone connected with religion is a loon? Or anyone who questions when science is not science? I admit that you do have some true loons recorded here. I perceive that everyone who questions consensus reality, you consider a loon. I note that your name is not on the list. The name David Hogan is not here, now there is a true loon, maybe it's not here because you're a follower.ReplyDelete
I just came across this ... person/business/trademark/whack-a-mole on Amazon.com. Shortest link I could craft: https://www.amazon.com/s/?keywords=dr+tobiasReplyDelete
Dr. Tobias Ihde (not an M.D.)
Of course he/it has a web page: https://drtobias.net/about-us
Selling all sorts of woo. Even claims his woo is more better than other identical woo’s.
Seems loony to me but is sadly not an American loon.
Try listing the nutters that the website "Gaia" promotes...they are remarkable. You already cover Greg Braden.ReplyDelete
I want to interview all of these people for Fringe Radio Network! Check us out for more people to add for your beautiful list!ReplyDelete
I give you a pair of names that surely will suit in the list: one is Rodney Howard Browne, River Church's founder and deranged conspiracist, the second is Ruben Israel, aka Ruben Chavez, deranged street preacher.ReplyDelete
It would be helpful if you would be willing to elaborate on your criteria for choosing the “loons” you identify, or at least verify the hypotheses already put forth in the comments attached. It seems to me that SOME religious fanatics and known hypocrites are listed, but does that indicate an overall bias against religion, or just clear extremists? However, some known listed don’t appear to be true fanatics or extremists; so, is that an overall dislike of, or bias against, religion?ReplyDelete
Science, itself, is a study prone to change as new information comes forth and new evidence is discovered. We know we DON’T KNOW everything, and science is unable to explain EVERYTHING, due to the simple fact that our technology is not advanced enough to measure everything. To wit, the brain and the ocean are two of the last great frontiers yet to be thoroughly examined and evaluated. Therefore, it seems to me that there is a place for the consideration of “spiritual” things that cannot yet be measured or explained. Simple long-term observation, and “gut feelings” sometimes play a role in leading towards the possibility, study, and discovery of new ideas and evidence. And, since we know that we don’t know everything, these conditions/issues cannot - and should not - be discounted as valid avenues towards proofs of new scientific discoveries.
Please respond and elaborate.
It would be helpful if you would delineate your criteria for identifying “loons,” as other comments have requested. You seem to carry an obvious bias against organized religion, yet I feel it necessary to point out that, even in science, we don’t know what we don’t know due to our technological insufficiencies. Science is an ever-evolving study and changes as new information and evidences are forthcoming. The spiritual side of consciousness cannot be discounted through long-term observation and “gut feelings” that spur further investigation and study of those things not yet understood that are eventually revealed to be true or false through science.ReplyDelete
Please elaborate and respond regarding your criteria for evaluating your subjects and address the perception or reality of a bias against religion. In the real world, they are not mutually exclusive. There are fanatics in both fields, to the point that science has sometimes been revealed to be as much of a “religion” as religion itself.
C'mon Deb. Isn't it obvious that a "loon" in the context of this website is anyone who might have something interesting or helpful to say? We really should appreciate this list as a valuable collection of fascinating people who deserve the attention being brought to them.Delete
