Falling for Sorcha Faal

Will the real Sorcha Faal please stand up?

On Nov. 26 the article Obama Orders 1 Million US Troops To 'Prepare for Civil War appeared on the whatdoesitmean site.

Since then it seems as if it has spread like wildfire but with one thing in common. Not a single repost or reference I have seen refers back to the original source.

Pakalert was one of the first to get the ball rolling and EU times has also taken up the cause.

Today even Chuck Baldwin at newswithviews continues the meme with 'Is Obama Really Preparing the US for Civil War.'

I began posting comments at various sites over a week ago asking nicely if they knew the source and why Faal wasn't credited as the original source and a few pulled the article. Pakalert refused to post my comment but was kind enough to start sending me spam emails.

Now I can be just as guilty of not following up and getting to the original sources of 'information' and trying to determine if they are credible and I appreciate folks who honestly want to set me straight.

Reseach 'Sorcha Faal' and take a look at his/her web site. Most notably the original articles.

Let me know what you think.


  1. I have been posting up Sorcha Faal articles with full credits for some time now.
    I find them credible and with back up sources.
    I think the site is deceptive as it looks like an art student's attempt to set up a site but information is good. They say he is a man but I can't remember the name. It was an Irish name.
    The articles are on:
    Whats Going On (2)

  2. Sorcha Faal seems to be a mixture of good and bad, like the curate's egg. It may have links to some spooks?

  3. from ATS... enjoy

    On almost a weekly basis some outrageous claim is made in an ATS thread, and usually the topic is centered on the demise of civilization as we know it. Here are some recent threads that are based on Sorcha Faal's "research" and "insight."

    US President Orders Military To Begin Jailing All Civilian Protestors To War

    Putin Orders Russian Military Forces To Attack US Forces During Iran Invasion????

    Russia, China Order Forces To Highest Alert As US Forces Mass On Iranian Border

    Pravda: Imus Fired After He Threatened to Reveal 9/11 secrets

    Massive ULF 'Blast' Detected In US Bridge Collapse Catastrophe

    US 'Shoot on Site' Order Issued For Escaping Americans

    Australia To Imprison All Muslims In Concentration Camps

    American Spy Satellite Downed In Peru

    ‘Ship of Giants’ Said Attacked By Israel in Strike on Syria

    The above is a sliver of the threads available on ATS.

    There is a common element to these "reports," the "author" Sorcha Faal. Who is "Sorcha Faal" and what is "her" agenda?

    Here is some insight:

    Reader Asks - 'Who Is Sorcha Faal?'

    Sorcha Faal

    FreedomCrowsNest Forum Index :: Out In The Cosmos :: Who is Sorcha Faal

    Who is ‘Sorcha Faal? A Posterboy for Mental Health

    Our own inquiry:

    Sorcha Faal: What's her story?

    And my favorite disclaimer regarding Sorcha Faal being used by a website:

    Note:. There is no such person as “Sorcha Faal, Russian academic” “Sorcha Faal” is actually David Booth, an American computer programmer “Sorcha” is alleged to be a Russian academic but there is absolutely no record of anyone with such a name in Russian academia. These periodic eruptions have absolutely no basis in any kind of fact or reality and are typical of the nonsense bespangling the internet. These reports, however, have a good deal of entertainment value. This idiocy is almost as funny as the Scientology cult babblings. Ed.

    Catastrophic Atmospheric Blast in Southern Hemisphere Continues Global Weather Chaos as North American Plate Instability Increases and US President Orders Massive Troop Withdrawal from New Madrid Fault Zone Region

    So why does David Booth/Sorcha Faal perpetrate this fraud? Apparently it is an excellent way to solicit money, and to promote his/her/its book:

    'Pick Your Doomsday Scenario Here!" An Analysis of the David Booth Affair

    THE DAVID BOOTH AFFAIR - Psyop Extraordinaire!!

    David Booth

    Sorcha Faal Strikes Again!

    David Booth - Plagiarist?

    And he should be dead now:

    As agreed upon by the congregation this final message to humanity would be released only upon the death of David Booth, the last in the line of the ‘messengers’ for the family.

    And as our Dear Brother David Booth lies tonight before that doorway of death we release to the world tonight this Final Message from him.

    But he's not... He's still coming up with hoax after hoax... Most likely using the "Sorcha Faal" moniker because his name has been tied to hoax's, plagiarism and other unsavory undertakings. Why feed David Booth's need to yank on the collective internet user's chain? Why do people drink the Kool-aid and hang on to a particular story's veracity? Is it because it reflects their personal world view, or beliefs? I'm not sure... But I am sure that every time I see a Sorcha Faal article referenced the possibility of "Deny Ignorance" has been greatly reduced regarding that particular topic.

    I hope this helps some of the members and guests of ATS understand the true nature of the Sorcha Faal/David Booth viral hoax campaign...

  4. and if you want to check the links in the article, go here...

    apparently it's a guy named Booth... a writer drumming up attention for his books via viral end of days hoaxes...

    kinda like AJ did with his "Obama Joker" poster campaign (with his website posted on the bottom)

  5. that article from ATS is from 2007 by the way.

  6. you should also check out this article of his where he says that "Russian officials" have declared the CIA killed Michael Jackson...

    yes, you read that right.

  7. Even the smelliest pile of shit will turn into good compost.

    And linking back to your own articles, like Faal does, is not considered to be a good source.

    Faal should turn to writing scifi novels or script for Glenn Beck..... or lyrics for Turdy Keith.

  8. And the CIA outed Tiger Woods ... and on and on.

    Of course it's disinfo, throw some links in that are credible, make up the rest and watch some that are gullible soak it up.

    No offense to you Rosaleen. We all fall for this type of stuff at times ... even Chuck Baldwin. I was surprised at him. If you have any evidence where Faal's predictions came to pass, please forward them.

    Good to see you back Greg.

  9. I would suggest yanking your money out of the banks right after Xmas (if there is any left too yank out)... you never know.

    and if we do see hyperinflation sometime soon, though the paper fiat money won't be worth much, at least it will be worth more than the "CLOSED" sign on your bank door.

  10. I've been trying to watch for the signs just in case that needs to be done. Not much there but like you said it would be better than nothing.

    If you or anyone else gets a good hunch before the crowd does, pass it on.

  11. Infowars picked up the Baldwin article.

    Also Daily Paul

  12. I'm more surprized that Baldwin fell for this than I am AJ.

  13. "our publication of this book will bring upon us much trouble and controversy, including threats to our lives as the Christian Death Cult knows only conflict, misery, subjugation, lies and deceit to both further their message of death and keep their adherents under their strict control."


  14. Brian, I'm glad you got a good laugh too.

    Only $42.38 for the book. What happened to being competitive with Walmart? Maybe $9 would bring in a few more 'converts.'

  15. $42.38 sounds like his pre-paid cell phone bill. Probably sells one book a month.

  16. "SF" = David Booth, who wrote a computer program that makes auto-responses to emails based on "the psychology of the content". Looks like he's trying to get a similar concept to work by having a program scour the internet under certain parameters, and create 'News' articles.

    What Does It Mean is a search program that generates "news" itemsin the same way this program produces essays based on certain parameters and key words:

    Just keep reloading the page and see the results. Sorcha produces "news" by doing the same thing until the generator comes up with something he likes.

  17. Anyone who says "Christian death cults" is probably a jew. That's even dummer than AJ's "Germanic death cults."

    I agree it is a disinfo site but in a way that is trying to discredit the truth by putting it out in a way that people will dismiss as complete hogwash.

    Today from Rense:

    Preparing for civil war? What do you think is going on? Isn't that 200 million number the number they're always throwing out there for registered gun owners in the US?
