Alex Constantine is an American author, investigative journalist and online editor of The Constantine Report. His work focuses on world fascism, political corruption and organized crime. Constantine's books have provided the premise for several BBC documentaries. In 2005, he was a featured speaker (with Paul Robeson, Jr. and Afeni Shakur, the mother of Tupac Shakur) before a standing-room only crowd at the Congressional Black Caucus's annual Brain Trust conference. In 2009, Constantine hosted a program that aired on French television (also featuring comedian Paul Krassner, singer Country Joe McDonald and Black Panther Bobby Seale) about opposition to the Vietnam War in the 1960s. One of his books explored the possibility that O.J. Simpson was framed for murder by the Mafia and the Los Angeles Police Department, resulting in Simpson's 1994 arrest and subsequent trial.[1]

Professional activities[edit]

Constantine has contributed to LA Weekly, Hustler, Z magazine, High Times, Random Lengths (Long Beach, California) and a variety of other magazines, as well as providing news and radio commentary for several California radio stations, including KAZU-FM in Monterey, and KPFK in Los Angeles. Constantine has also appeared on various television shows related to music, mind control and political assassinations. His investigation of cults led to an opening Hard Copy segment that examined the childhood of late actor River Phoenix in the Children of God sect. He has hosted four BBC productions, including one on the John F. Kennedy assassination and another on the death of Jimi Hendrix. The British newspaper The Observer included his book The Covert War Against Rock in their "The 50 Greatest Music Books Ever" list. [2] Much of his writing focuses on fascism, which he says is inherently conspiratorial, the intelligence community, corporate excesses and organized crime.

One of Constantine's most popular articles alleges that the Central Intelligence Agency has collaborated with satanic cults in trauma-based programming.[3] In his book The Covert War Against Rock Constantine claims that dissident rock stars have been surveilled, harassed and in some cases murdered for political reasons.[4]
