For the past year on this channel I have shared conversations I had with a mysterious individual to whom I gave the pseudonym “Arthur.” My relationship with Arthur dates back several years although I only began publicly sharing our conversations in December of 2017.
Over the past year, many conversations and revelations have come to light that have challenged my relationship with Arthur. It is my intention with this discussion to convey my sincerest thoughts regarding Arthur, our relationship, and most importantly, the information that Arthur shared with me. I have taken the time to commit these thoughts to writing so that I can relate them clearly, concisely, and not waste anyone’s time. I hope that you will listen to this discussion in its entirety. This transcript will be available on my website at DauntlessDialogue.com
From the start, I want to express that I still hold a friendship with Arthur and the foundation of our friendship revolves around the exploration of ideas. This has always been the foundation of our friendship. I believe Arthur speaks honestly as he perceives the world. I believe Arthur never intentionally passes along misinformation. However, as I will explain momentarily, I have observed Arthur’s gross inaccuracy several times over the past six months.
As I mentioned, Arthur and I met several years ago. We both attended an event and while there, we struck up a conversation and took a liking to each other. We exchanged phone numbers and over the next three or four years, he slowly began to divulge information about himself which helped explain his personality, his worldview, and his seemingly exclusive access to highly secretive information.
For many years, I did not know what to make of Arthur. He claimed to have been an unlisted Department of Defense contractor, a SEAL Team trainer, a military weapons developer, and a key figure in Oath Keepers, among other things. He also made allusions to having been an interrogator, perhaps for the CIA. Of course, I never had any empirical way of validating these claims. I only had my discernment and intuition to decide upon.
In 2014, I began writing public articles for what would eventually become Dauntless Dialogue. In early 2017, I started uploading videos to my YouTube channel with the intention of contributing my research to the conspiracy movement. In December of 2017, I uploaded my first conversation with Arthur, not knowing how it would be received by my subscribers. To my surprise, it was well received and the videos began to go viral.
Arthur was aware that I had a platform and I asked him if I could disclose some of what he was sharing with me. He was fine with me sharing many things we discussed, but he never hesitated to ask me to keep other details secret. As a small safeguard, I never told Arthur the name of my channel or how large my following was. While it is true that if he was curious enough he could have found my channel, he admits that he rarely uses the internet and I have observed his rather amateur incompetence with navigating the internet as he is now in his late sixties.
Along with the overwhelming support from my subscribers, there was significant criticism. I have always embraced and welcomed this criticism as I myself am quite critical. I am also aware of the optics of the strange dynamic between a young YouTube content creator and an ostensible “Alliance Insider.” I have done my best to address the criticism in a professional way on numerous occasions. In every video I shared regarding Arthur, I have prefaced it with the following disclaimer:
“As always, I remind my audience to exercise discernment with my content and to weigh it in the balance of your own independent research. Do not necessarily take anything here as fact. Dauntless Dialogue does not agree with, believe, or condone everything that Arthur shares with us.”
On May 16, 2018, I shared an article wherein I confessed how I felt inwardly conflicted. Q made statements that conveyed how the Alliance was using the Q briefings to engage with the public and that other supposed whistleblowers, such as “Zach” who appeared on the Alex Jones Show, was inauthentic. I then decided to no longer refer to Arthur as an “Alliance Insider” because I was concerned that I might be hurting instead of helping.
Since that time, I have shared less and less of Arthur’s briefings with my subscriber base. This was partially due to the fact that Arthur was sharing less and less with me. It was never my intention for Arthur’s briefings to go viral; it just happened that way unexpectedly. I also found myself in a strange position as it seemed like Arthur’s briefings eclipsed my other material, much of which I spent hundreds of hours working on. Yet, people wanted to hear from Arthur and I felt compelled to comply with their desires. The old adage applies, “Give the people what the want.”
To quickly address the criticisms that I was fabricating my conversations with Arthur, I must say that I have a vivid imagination and if I really wanted to, if I lacked a moral compass, I could easily make up much more engaging stories with much greater frequency. In fact, it was quite the opposite. I would now like to reveal how much information I actually held back, and why I chose to do so. This will help explain my current predicament and the reason for this discussion.
Although it seemed that Arthur had an inside track by correctly predicting certain things with great detail and specificity, even before Q in some cases, there were a number of predictions that he made in 2018 which were not accurate. One such example is the rumor he heard that the indictments would be unsealed a month before the election. This false prediction and others gave me pause.
Beginning in October, I decided to sit on some information he shared with me to assess its accuracy. One of the pieces of intel he shared was that there was to be a major event on October 30th that would include such things as major media pundits and politicians getting arrested. At the time, this simply did not feel intuitively correct, so I withheld that from my audience. As the date came and went with no spectacular event to speak of, I was unnerved. This happened once again with another piece of intel he shared with me in late November.
In addition to these two let downs, Arthur and I have arrived at some serious ideological disagreements. Given Arthur’s putative background, he is possessed by why I refer to as Military Industrial Complex Derangement. Much of Arthur’s identity is animated by his prior involvement in the black projects and as such he seems to worship the military industrial complex and regard it as infallible. This affects his comportment to a large degree and he seems aggressive and ready to fight with anyone who disagrees with him. Whenever I challenge the reputation of different intelligence agencies he is quick to defend. To Arthur, war is often the answer. I should point out that these are my words, not his.
This attitude, coupled with his unhealthy diet and lifestyle have caused me to consider his epistemology. I have had multiple conversations with Arthur regarding his epistemology and he seems to have serious flaws in his philosophical framework. This is a serious issue for me.
Not to digress from the nuts and bolts of this discussion too much, I believe we all long for heroes and saviors. In the same vein, many people seek information that gives them hope. I do not want to be a purveyor of “hopium” nor do I wish to pander to my audience. While it is true that Arthur has given hope and clarity to much of my audience, I cannot in good conscience pass along information of questionable veracity. As a journalist striving to expose evil, I need to be the change I wish to see in the world.
Regardless of the potential ramifications to my subscriber count, I hope that my transparency in this process earns or maintains your trust in me. I’m not out to profit from or gain clout from questionable information. If I was, as I mentioned, I could have easily spread false information to grow my channel and make a few dollars off of people’s gullibility.
An oath that I solemnly abide by is to tell the truth as I see it, to be courageous even in the face of public scorn, and to place transparency as the highest priority.
So, where does that leave us? How will things change moving forward?
At the moment, I’m unsure. Has Arthur been given false information and unknowingly passed it along? I believe that is the most likely possibility. As I mentioned in the beginning, I still believe Arthur is a very honest person, despite his personality flaws. I will continue to qualify what he shares with me, and if it seems like he weeds out his sources of misinformation, then I may resume sharing his briefings in the future, but always with the usual disclaimers. I hope this video has answered a lot of your questions regarding the Arthur saga.
I am thankful for the fans that I have gained as a result of the Arthur videos. Without them, some of you might never have found me or my content. If some of you choose to leave because you don’t believe me, then I will be sad to see you go. I hope that you will stay loyal to my channel as it grows and evolves and together we can expose more of the evil that plagues this world.
