Background on David Icke:
Young David Icke was a professional soccer player in England. Unfortunately arthritis put a stop to his career, so he became a sports commentator for British Television. He was also for a time, the leader of the political Green Party in England. On a trip to Peru in 1991, near an ancient pre-Incan ruin, he felt like he had a "electric shock" and he gained, in his own words, a higher level of consciousness. It was like he could see clearly what was wrong with the world.
When he returned to England, dazed and confused about his Peruvian experience, he went on the prime time English talk-show, The Terry Wogan show. The host and the audience ridiculed him and after this appearance he and his family was the laughing stock all over Britain.
Although his children was teased in school and he could not go for a pint of beer without the whole pub laughing at him, he started lecturing all over England and writing books. Very few people came to hear his story & he sold very few books.
But he continued his research and more people approached him with new information. Slowly his following grew and last year he held a 10 hour lecture in the English national soccer stadium.
Whats good about David Icke is:
He name names and invite people to sue him. He has called George Bush senior a bloodsucking (literally!) child killer and the former British Prime Minister Edward Heath, a serial homosexual paedophile and child killer.
He named famous children's entertainer, Jimmy Savile, a paedophile procurer of children for the rich, the royal family and a necrophiliac. He has done this for many years and last year it was confirmed Icke was right about Jimmy Savile.
His stuff is so far down the rabbit hole containing, other dimensional Reptilian beings manipulating our reality, bloodlines from ancient Babylonia ruling the world today, reality itself being influenced from Saturn and much more.
I recommend everybody to dig into Icke's books and lectures, even though its hardcore weird stuff. You don't have to believe all of it or ANY of it, but if you like conspiracy theories, this is the holy grail
