Alien Agenda: Investigating the Extraterrestrial Presence Among Us

Jim Marrs has had one goal in mind throughout his entire life: to uncover some of the world’s greatest mysteries and to answer the questions that are buried deep within all of us. Wondering whether or not there are other lifeforms in the universe has been a concept that we’ve all juggled around with from time to time, but award-winning Jim Marrs believes that he has gotten to the bottom of it all. In his book, Alien Agenda: Investigating the Extraterrestrial Presence Among Us, Marrs discusses the newly uncovered evidence that extraterrestrials have not only visited Earth, but they’re living among us at this very moment.

Using evidence derived from eyewitness accounts, classified reports from the CIA, and his own in-depth research, Marrs has provided a deeper understanding of the Roswell crash in 1947, detailed accounts of different UFO landings and abductions throughout South America, and unbelievable descriptions of UFOs from the astronauts on Apollo. Alien Agenda: Investigating the Extraterrestrial Presence Among Us will not only have you questioning your belief in aliens from outer space, but it will have you questioning whether or not your strange new neighbor is from a different planet after all.

The Trillion-Dollar Conspiracy

How would you feel if you found out that your life is not your own? What if you found out that all of the products you buy, the decisions you make, and the topics you see on the news were all being controlled by an ancient order whose only goal in existence is to control and enslave the masses? You would obviously be devasted…angry…appalled, and this is exactly what Marrs covers in his book, The Trillion-Dollar Conspiracy: How the New World Order, Man-Made Diseases, and Zombie Banks Are Destroying America.

In this book, Marrs discusses the New World Order, an elite, secretive global group that has taken hold of the world’s money, media, and citizens. Marrs has gone to great lengths to expose information that the mainstream media has absolutely refused to report, and the people who would die to keep the secret buried forever. The Trillion-Dollar Conspiracy: How the New World Order, Man-Made Diseases, and Zombie Banks Are Destroying America may not be for the faint of heart, but its story is one that we all need to hear.

The Rise of the Fourth Reich: The Secret Societies That Threaten to Take Over America

You don’t need to be told that the Jewish Holocaust was one of the most heinous events to ever occur, especially in recent history. We’ve been taught about the Holocaust, and the 11 million people who suffered and died because of the ignorant ideology of others, ever since we were younger, and most of us have gotten the correct message from the outcome: hate and ignorance, of any kind, have no place in this world. Unfortunately, there are plenty of people out there who seem to have gotten the wrong message. In the book, The Rise of the Fourth Reich:

The Secret Societies That Threaten to Take Over America, Marrs reveals the devastating truth that the United States could be closely following in the Third Reich’s footsteps. In his book, Marrs talks about the families and corporations that are running the world and how their absurd belief in this destructive ideology is consuming the people of the United States.

Rule by Secrecy: The Hidden History That Connects the Trilateral Commission, the Freemasons, and the Great Pyramids

Secret societies have been an unknown concern for those on the outside of the secret for as long as any of us can remember, and Marrs has gone to great lengths to uncover some of them for those that are on the outside looking in. In the book, Rule By Secrecy: The Hidden History That Connects the Trilateral Commission, the Freemasons, and the Great Pyramids, Jim Marrs takes a close look at the world’s deepest secrets and the societies that have killed to keep them hidden.

In Rule by Secrecy, Marrs shows the evidence that he has found throughout his extensive work as an investigative journalist, proving that there are higher powers manipulating the stock market, investing in wars, maintaining classism, and censoring the news. If you’ve ever felt like there were outside forces governing the way things work, then this book by Jim Marrs might just convince you that there are.

The Illuminati: The Secret Society That Hijacked the World

Jim Marrs has spent many years researching and investigating the inner workings of secret societies, the government, and the world’s richest people. In fact, he has made an actual career out of his research and curiosity, and in his book, The Illuminati: The Secret Society That Hijacked the World, Marrs has given everyone who has ever heard of this secret society the proof that they have been looking for. Throughout his book, Marrs takes an in-depth look into assassins, the Knights Templar, the Knights of Malta, whistleblowers, mystery schools, Gnosticism, the Roshaniya, and of course, the symbols, theology, and the structure of the Illuminati. If you’ve ever wondered why the all-seeing eye was on the one-dollar-bill, or why all of a sudden people were making strange triangle gestures with their hands, then the book, The Illuminati: The Secret Society That Hijacked the World, should be the next item you jot down on your reading list.

As you can clearly see, Marrs has a bit of a flair for the dramatic. Whether you believe in aliens, secret societies, and world domination, or not, Jim Marrs has the ability to draw in a reader and keep them interested for hundreds of pages.
