The Adventures Of Ct from the Author: Michaelson Williams. The Adventures of CT chronicles the life of “CT” Christopher Thornton, a critical thinker and his two friends Julie Speakmaster, and Ronin a trio of unsuspecting hero’s to the planet Earth. Christopher Thornton, Julie Speakmaster, and Ronin possess extraordinary gifts which allow them to expose hidden truths, scandalous government cover ups, and mass mind control. They possess powers of critical thinking, empowered speech, and sheer physical strength which guide the trio on their journey to save the human race. Christopher, Julie, and Ronin monitor the tools of mind control, and brainwashing to unearth the lies and tails being told to the people of this planet in order to control and enslave them. The main purpose of this trio’s journey is to open the mind’s eye of an enslaved humanity on earth. News mediums which are used to fill the minds of the children of Mother Earth are policed by the trio to reveal nothing but the facts, no matter how unpopular and unbelievable those facts may seem. It is believable lies that are taken as true and the truths are dismissed as lies and conspiracy theories. This must be changed, this most switched, and the mind controlling poisons undone. If not Christopher, Julie, and Ronin realize this could very well be the demise of the majority of humans inhabiting planet Earth.
