Dave McGowan's Laurel Canyon series changed my whole life. It opened up a vista which put so many pieces into place for me, made so much that had previously been incomprehensible comprehensible, really imparted an enlightenment to me. Grim though the revelations were, it all made so much sense, and freed me. His series on the fake moon landing was over my head, but still there was enough there that I could follow that it cinched the whole thing for me. He did great work, made a great contribution, and as Odinrok says in his tribute, did it with a sense of humor that was very engaging. We will all miss him. But I think Odinrok is right in that Mathis' work will live on, and gain more momentum and power as time passes.
I'm glad Odinrok suggested that the "fast-acting cancer" was a murder weapon; when I read these words in Silversong's post I immediately suspected foul play. McGowan must have stumbled across something, or put some pieces of the puzzle together, than were too close for TPTB's comfort. Instead of killing him and putting in an impostor, as they have with so many other writers and YouTubers, they just killed him and let the world mourn. Maybe he was too difficult to successfully counterfeit.
It's interesting that some of the comments compare him to Miles Mathis -- some saying he was better, others saying Mathis is better -- because that comparison immediately comes to my mind too. There are some pretty stark similarities. I personally believe that Mathis is a PTB creation with lots of really, really important, enlightening Disclosure information, and then a few carefully planted disinformation and misdirection seeds to lead the reader in the wrong direction. I've suspected for a while that he was created to be an alternate Dave McGowan, somewhat mimicking the style, approach, and humor, to stealthily replace McGowan. Now with the latter's untimely death, I'm almost sure of it. The big giveaway to me that Mathis was a PTB agent is that while he accurately proves that the Manson murders and other atrocities of the Sixties and early Seventies were faked, he gives the reason for it as TPTB wanting to discredit and destroy the anti-war, peace and love counterculture, which threatened to topple their power. Any conspiracy researcher worth anything knows by now that the counterculture and peace movement and all that stuff was itself nothing but the most massive, contrived psy op TPTB/CIA ever unleashed on an unsuspecting America. (The Beatles being, of course, a critical component of this enormous, encompassing psy op.) Demonstrating this beyond a shadow of a doubt was the central POINT of Dave McGowan's Laurel Canyon series. I think the detractors posting in the comments section of the tribute video are plants, professional trolls, and it's no accident that Mathis' name comes up. The agents are posting there to deliberately direct viewers over to Mathis' work, in the hopes of negating McGowan's, or getting people to forget it exists.
Thank you for posting this video, Silversong.
