Don Nicoloff is a radio talkshow host (“Evident Footprints”) who has developed “his metaphysical gifts through the discipline of mastering previous physical and mental limitations.” Although Evident Footprints covers pretty much any crazy conspiracy theory and any form of woo imaginable, Nicoloff is first and foremostly a birther. In fact, Nicoloff was one of the first to take up the Obama birth certificate issue, and has subsequently taken the birther conspiracies to interesting levels. Not only is Barack Obama “really” Barry Soetoro, but also Barry Rockefeller and hence member of the Rockefeller family – one of the families that apparently really run things in the US. And senator John McCain is a fraud as well (he is really one John McCann, II). So was George Bush sr. (really George H. Scherff, Jr.) and Dwight Eisenhower.
So who was George Scherff, jr.? Well, Nicoloff has procured a “family photo” from 1938 with (according to Nicoloff) Martin Bormann and Joseph Mengele. So the Bush family (a.k.a. Scherff) was really high-ranking Nazis. Scherff sr. was, for good measure, the assistant of Nicola Tesla as well, a position he used to steal Tesla’s revolutionary technologies and give them to the Nazis. The John McCain story, with its conspiracies and Nazi connections, is told here, and the thorny and long-winded story of Obama is told in several parts here.
In order to justify his claims, Nicoloff produces a rather tortured reinvention of pretty much all of 20th century history. “What we are taught about history in American schools is not history, but a fairy tale,” says Nicoloff. “Better yet, it is propaganda designed to hoodwink an unsuspecting society about its true heritage and the treasonous acts and sabotage that were conceived in order to bring about a New World Order.” He even redefines “research” to support his conclusions (and for good measure, uses the dangers of water fluoridation as an example). The main justification for his way of telling the story is that a secret, powerful organization out to control the world would use deception. Therefore Nicoloff is right.
Nicoloff has made several radio interviews with Ken Adachi, where they discuss birther stuff, Planet X, Elenin, HAARP, reptilian overlords and “how gifted people are dispatching the main demons from the planets this very moment” (“[t]he lower astral is having a huge make over right now”).
Diagnosis: It is rather interesting that Nicoloff’s rants managed to get more or less mainstreamed in certain segments of the population, but there you have it.
