David Icke, Part1

When I first started reading about conspiracy theories, I really liked David Icke's because his came the closest I had found to a "Unified Conspiracy Theory".
He took almost everything into account, and tied everything in together.

David Vaughan Icke (pronounced to rhyme with "like") was born April 29, 1952 and is a British writer and public speaker who has devoted himself since 1990 to researching "who and what is really controlling the world." A former professional football player, reporter, television sports presenter, and former spokesman for the Green Party, he is the author of 20 books explaining his views.

Icke argues that he has developed a moral and political worldview that combines New Age spiritualism with a passionate denunciation of what he sees as totalitarian trends in the modern world, a position that has been described as "New Age conspiracism."

At the heart of Icke's theories is the view that the world is ruled by a secret group called the "Global Elite" or "Illuminati". In 1999, he published The Biggest Secret, in which he wrote that the Illuminati are a race of reptilian humanoids known as the Babylonian Brotherhood, and that many prominent figures are reptilian, including George W. Bush, Queen Elizabeth II, Kris Kristofferson, and Boxcar Willie.

His son, Gareth Icke, is a musician and beach soccer player who has represented England in international beach soccer.

According to Political Research Associates, Icke's speaking engagements can draw a substantial audience in Canada, with his organizers claiming as many as 1000 people attending one in Vancouver. During an October 1999 speaking tour there, he received a standing ovation from students after a four-hour speech at the University of Toronto, while his books were removed from the shelves of Indigo Books across Ontario after protests from the Canadian Jewish Congress.

Icke was born in Leicester to Beric Vaughan Icke (born 1907, Leicester) and Barbara J. Icke (née Cooke) (married 1951, Leicester), and was raised on a council estate, or public housing, according to the biography on his website. He left school to play football for Coventry City ( The Sky Blues) and Hereford United ( The Whites) in the English league, playing as a goalkeeper until forced to retire at the age of 21 because of a swollen knee.

He found a job with a local newspaper in Leicester and became a reporter, moving on to local sports presenter for BBC South's Program South Today. He appeared on the first episode of British television's first national breakfast show BBC Breakfast Time presenting the sports news and featured on the show until 1985. He would also become strong part of BBC Sport's presentation team, often as a stand-in host on Grandstand and snooker programs. He was part of the BBC team at the 1988 Olympic Games, but he left the BBC later that year to become an activist for the Green Party. He rose swiftly to the position of national media spokesperson. In 1990, he wrote It Doesn't Have To Be Like This, an outline of his views on the environment and his political philosophy.
