Jim Keith 1949 - 1999

As some of you know, James Keith broke his leg at Burning Man, stepping off of a three-foot stage. Thinking it was just a severe sprain, he went home and tried to sleep it off. Realising the next morning it was more, he went to Washoe Medical and was to be treated for a broken knee. This was to involve surgery, but was delayed due to a problem with kidney function.

On Tuesday, September 7th, he was in good spirits, but worried about the thought of being put under. He is quoted by a friend as saying, "I have this feeling that if they put me under I'm not coming back"

That night, Jim Keith went in for his surgery, and around 8:10 PM, a blood clot released from his leg went to his lung and he passed away.

James leaves behind two daughters Aerika (13) and Verity (15).


Jim Keith's Big Secret
Robert Sterling

Now that Jim Keith has passed away, one of his secrets can be revealed:

Jim Keith was Commander X.

Well, not completely: Commander X, the author of a group of spooky books dealing with subjects ranging from Tesla free energy, the Philadelphia Experiment, and alien overlords who rule our society, was actually a pen name for various authors. Keith was one of them: Timothy Beckley is another.

The irony, of course, is that in one of his last articles (a review of David Icke's "The Biggest Secret," written for The Konformist), Keith claims that "Icke's new book is a classic at that odd edge of literature inhabited by people like Bill Cooper, Commander X, Al Bielek, George Andrews, and a flock of others; folks who have a decided talent for making money, but have to ask others to tie their shoes for them." The irony is even more delicious, because secretly Keith admired Bill Cooper's unique style and ability to cause a controversy.

In any case, now may be a good time to read some of the entertaining works of Commander X again, or for a first time if you haven't already. Many in the conspiracy field have long believed that Commander X was some sort of fascist Nazi propaganda, where good light-skinned aliens battle evil, large-nosed alien monsters. When looking at the work as satire rather than a disinformation vehicle, however, Commander X is quite a hoot.

JIM KEITH, HONOURED FRIEND, 1949-1999
Kenn Thomas

Thank you to all who have sent kind words about Jim Keith. He was a dear friend of mine and an important person to the world. The loss is immeasurable. He was not just the co-author of The Octopus, but a dharma combatant who demonstrated time and again that the world is far more multidimensional, far more interesting, than the pabulum that usually passes for news, information and normal discourse. Unfortunately, it is also far more dangerous.

Rumour has it that Jim may have been killed because he mentioned the name of the physician who declared Diana was pregnant at the time of her death. I have long noted the connections between Diana's death and the Octopus. Diana was the subject of Jim's last column for Nitro News, which has been linked via Jim's photograph above for the past couple of weeks. Nitro News has not been accessible since Jim's death, although I reached it just before receiving word of his passing.

This rumour may be nonsense. Casolaro may have committed suicide. It is the way of the Octopus. It exists but it doesn't exist. These are blood clots or suicides or non-suspicious homicides or real accidents. They just happen to cluster coincidentally around a certain set of facts or a certain perception of an organised conspiracy.

And if Jim Keith did not die as a result of a conspiracy, then I'm sure he would want us to make it look that way!

I hope all will remember Jim Keith for his good humour and for his fearlessness. He wrote what he knew and he let the chips fall where they might. He lived on the edge, where I usually tried to catch up with him. I hope he taught me enough about the place to keep up the work to which we were both committed.

If word comes of public services for Jim, I will pass it on. I have tentative plans to go to Reno and investigate what happened while the trails are still fresh. This will take money, though, and as with Jim and Danny Casolaro both, that's always in short supply, despite the romanticised view many people have of well-paid, world travelling writers and researchers. I urge anyone with information to contact me directly at kennthomas@umsl.edu. We'll do whatever research work we can from our desks and get as much field work done as possible. I have sent inquiries to Burning Man, where Jim broke his knee leading to the surgery and the blood clot that ended his life, and know one source who took a great deal of video there.

Also, several of Jim's friends have expressed an interest in putting together a memorial volume of essays. Check back with Steamshovel for news of this project as it develops.

Thank you again. Remember Jim!

Jim Keith's Last Fall

If you're an investigative journalist who's lately publicly addressed some fairly "warm" recent conspiracies, we would STRONGLY advise that you be EXTREMELY careful NOT to have a relatively minor fall which might result in a bruise serious enough for you to desire medical advice/attention.

If you DO incur such a bruise (or any other condition needing medical attention), we would STRONGLY advise seeking care from a KNOWN and TRUSTED practitioner ONLY.

You wouldn't want a "blood clot" from the impacted area to go to your lungs and kill you instantly, a one-in-a-trillion possibility (if that), which mysteriously and MOST UNFORTUNATELY purportedly occurred in the case of the late Jim Keith.

Within the past few weeks the well-known and well-respected Keith, via the Internet's "Nitro News" organisation, had published articles which showed how the airplane "crash" which took the lives of JFK Jr., wife and sister-in-law last July was in fact caused by sabotage by means of an explosive device; and also that the similarly "engineered", scripted "accident" which took the life of Princess Diana 2 years ago was implemented at that time because Diana was pregnant.

Not long after these articles were published, Jim Keith incurred a minor leg injury for which he sought medical attention at a nearby hospital.

This medical attention resulted in Jim Keith's death.

During this same period of time the Nitro News website inexplicably went down for several days. To our knowledge no credible explanation has yet been put forth for this.

This all seems, to say the least, suspicious.

JIM KEITH 1949-1999
Writer, Investigator Dead
HAS THE OCTOPUS STRUCK AGAIN?

September 10, 1999

Dear Rumour Mill News Readers,

Several days ago I sent out an article that had been forwarded to me by Nitro News. I was an article written by Jim Keith. While I never met Jim, I did know of him and had used one of his books as a resource when I was writing my book, Diana, Queen of Heaven.

Two days after I sent out the link to Nitro News and Jim's article, (you will find the original article at the end of this post), I received the following note stating that Jim Keith was dead:


I just received word in a telephone conversation with Illuminet Publisher Ron Bonds that conspiracy writer Jim Keith passed away last night.

From the information I have been given he was taken to the hospital after breaking his leg. An operation to set the leg was postponed due to kidney problems and somewhere along the line a blood clot was involved in his passing. More information will no doubt be forthcoming.

TODAY, RUMOUR MILL NEWS RECEIVED THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION. ONE OF THE THINGS INCLUDED IS A STATEMENT WHICH SAYS THAT RUMOUR HAS IT THAT JIM MAY HAVE BEEN KILLED BECAUSE HE REVEALED THE SOURCE OF HIS INFORMATION.

RMNews RECEIVED A TELEPHONE CALL FROM A MAN WHO SEEMS TO HAVE HAD A BACKGROUND IN THE WORLD OF BLACK OPS. HE STATED THAT ONE OF THE THINGS THAT GETS INVESTIGATIVE REPORTERS KILLED IS NOT THE INFORMATION THEY REVEAL, BUT THE FACT THAT THEY REVEAL THE NAMES OF THEIR SOURCES, AND IN THE PROCESS, THEY ENDANGER THE LIVES OF MEN AND WOMEN WHO ARE TRYING TO EXPOSE AND STOP THE PLANS OF THE NEW WORLD ORDER.

RMNews HAS NO IDEA WHAT CAUSED JIM KEITH'S DEATH. HOWEVER, THE ABOVE DESCRIPTION OF HIS DEATH, DOES MAKE ONE WONDER. THE TIMING OF HIS DEATH, COMING IMMEDIATELY AFTER NITRO NEWS PUBLISHED HIS ARTICLE ON PRINCESS DIANA, ALSO MAKES HIS DEATH EXTREMELY QUESTIONABLE.

Jim Kieth reveals that Princess Diana was pregnant at the time of her death!

Jim Keith was one of the mind control researchers whose work I quoted in my book on the death of Princess Diana, called:
Diana, Queen Of Heaven

At the time I wrote my book, I had been told that Diana was pregnant. I was told the reason that the ambulance took so long to get her to the hospital is because they were performing an abortion.

I chose not to include this information in my book. But Jim Keith has just released an article showing that she was indeed pregnant with Dodi's child.

PRINCESS DIANA WAS PREGNANT FAYED'S PHYSICIAN EXAMINED HER

Commentary by Jim Keith
jkeith@nitronews.com

Recent French findings have not put to rest the suspicion that a conspiracy was responsible for the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, millionaire Dodi Fayed, and driver, Henri Paul, in Paris on August 31, 1997. The case for conspiracy is familiar enough to those who delve into the hidden side of world politics.

Diana had crossed the reigning House of Windsor, and had taken on the color of an enemy to the throne of Great Britain. Born of the competing Stuart Royal line, she had been a thorn in the side of the British Monarchy virtually from the beginning of her marriage to Prince Charles. She was far more popular than the aloof Charles, and a perception of unfair treatment by the Royal Family only added to already-numerous calls for the abolition of the Monarchy.

It is fair to think that Diana may have been seen by the House of Windsor as becoming dangerously powerful, and as a threat to their future. She was also viewed as a threat to other elements of the British establishment, including the arms industry, whose lucrative business in death was challenged by her calls for an international ban on land mines. Diana had already been targeted with surveillance and wiretaps by Britain's domestic intelligence agency, MI5, and through the leaking of her private conversations to the press.

At least two persons close to Diana and Dodi Fayed have told the press that the couple were planning on marrying. They had been dating for nine months, and Dodi's purchase of a quarter million dollar diamond ring for her provided additional confirmation.

A marriage to Dodi Fayed would have been seen by the British establishment as an alliance with the Muslim world, and there was the real possibility that Diana would convert to the Islamic faith. Equally important, Dodi's father was billionaire Muhammad Fayed, related to the Saudi Royal Family. He is alleged to have compromised many British politicians through the use of his bribes and other incentives.

Of central importance to the belief that Diana may have been murdered are unconfirmed reports that she was pregnant by Dodi Fayed at the time of her death. Certainly, the birth of a child with Egyptian blood, half-brother to Diana's sons, would have been seen as a devastating event to the rulers of Britain. So far, however, no conclusive proof has been offered that she was pregnant. I have now obtained the closest thing to proof that will probably ever be revealed.

Confirmation of Diana's pregnancy comes from a unique source: through the network of the Middle Eastern religious group called the Sufis. The Sufis are a meditative, mystical offshoot of the Islamic faith, and several members of this group are friends of the author.

In 1998, one of my Sufi contacts, who chooses to remain anonymous, travelled to London to participate in Dhikr, a remembrance of Allah. This ritual was attended by both Sufis and orthodox Muslims. My contact reports that while participating in this ceremony, he met Dodi Fayed's personal physician, a man who is a Muslim, but is not a Sufi. In private conversation, the physician told him that Diana and Dodi Fayed had planned on getting married, and that he had personally examined her and determined that she was pregnant.

If this is the case, why has this physician not come forward and told the press? One can only speculate. Perhaps this information is being kept secret as part of a larger indictment when Muhammad Fayed finally weighs in with proof of a conspiracy.
