Hoffman was born to a Catholic family in 1957 in Geneva, New York.[1] His father, the chief of physical therapy at Clifton Springs Hospital, was German-American.[1] His mother was Italian-American.[1] According to biographical information on the back cover of his book Judaism Discovered, Hoffman studied at the State University of New York at Oswego under Dr. Richard Funk and Dr. Faiz Abu-Jaber, father of Diana Abu-Jaber.

Hoffman was reportedly taught at an early age about Institute for Historical Review.[5] He has also edited the work of alternative publisher Adam Parfrey.[6]

Hoffman claims to have operated an organic farm and to have lived among the Amish for several years. In 1995, Hoffman moved with his family to Idaho.[1] There, he hoped to establish a museum that would detail the "Communist holocaust against Christians" (i.e., the persecution of Christians in the Soviet Union), "the holocaust against the Germans", (i.e., the bombing of Dresden and other major German cities in World War II), and the "Holocaust against Japan" (i.e., the incineration of Tokyo and the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki).[1]


Hoffman is the author of eight self-published works:

  • The Great Holocaust Trial: The Landmark Battle for the Right to Doubt the West's Most Sacred Relic[7]
  • They Were White and They Were Slaves: The Untold History of the Enslavement of Whites in Early America
  • The Israeli Holocaust Against the Palestinians (with Moshe Lieberman)
  • Secret Societies and Psychological Warfare
  • Judaism's Strange Gods
  • Judaism Discovered: A Study of the Anti-Biblical Religion of Racism, Self-Worship, Superstition and Deceit
  • Usury in Christendom: The Mortal Sin that Was and Now is Not
  • A Candidate for the Order (a novel)

Hoffman has also written the introductions for modern reprints, which he also published, of:

  • The Traditions of the Jews by Johann Andreas Eisenmenger
  • The Talmud Tested by Alexander McCaul, D.D.

Hoffman has written articles for the UK-based magazine Fortean Times,[8] as well as the Lutheran newspaper Christian News of New Haven, MO, which is published by Otten.[9] He has claimed to have worked as a reporter for the Albany, New York, bureau of the Associated Press. His principal research interests are historical revisionism, the alleged occult roots of Freemasonry, the command ideology of the Cryptocracy, Fortean phenomena, and the sacred texts of Orthodox Judaism.[10]

He also wrote the script for the 1989 publication, Tales of the Holohoax which landed Simon Sheppard in jail.



Hoffman is the author of Usury in Christendom: The Mortal Sin that Was and Now is Not (2013). He argues that Jewish money-lenders have been scapegoated by gentile and Christian usurers in order to deflect attention from Renaissance Roman Catholic and late Protestant usury banking.


Hoffman denies that six million Jews were exterminated, in gas chambers in Auschwitz and other camps or by other means, during World War II. Hoffman has responded to the charge of Holocaust denial by stating: "Judaic people suffered severe and unconscionable persecution during World War II, including mass murder at the hands of the Nazis. I deplore these crimes and the criminal Nazi ideology which inspired and directed them."[11] Hoffman has written and lectured extensively on his allegation that the terms Holocaust and Holocaust denial are, according to him, representative of Orwellian Newspeak and religious mania and hysteria.[12]


Hoffman is the author of Secret Societies and Psychological Warfare which outlines his conspiracy theory of a shadow government or "cryptocracy"[1] that gains power through manipulation of symbols and twilight language. Examples of such "psychodramas," in Hoffman's view, include Route 66 (which connects various centers of occult significance), and the Assassination of President John F. Kennedy, in which Hoffman sees ritualistic elements.[1] The theory of masonic symbolism in the assassination of President Kennedy was first articulated by James Shelby Downard, with whom Hoffman co-authored King/Kill-33 which became the inspiration for a song by Marilyn Manson.[13]

Hoffman also states that the gnosis of this ruling cabal is slowly being revealed through movies such as They Live and The Matrix and other forms of symbolic and subliminal communication.[1] Hoffman has appeared on the Alex Jones radio show to discuss his theories. In a 2002 lecture in Sandpoint, Idaho, Hoffman analyzed the 9/11 terror attack in terms of human alchemy and psychological warfare[14]

More important is his understanding of the tenets of mind control, and the fallacy that exposure of the methods of a criminal undertaking represents an important step "toward overthrowing the power of the cryptocracy." The perpetrators typically let the truth emerge—The Revelation of the Method—strengthening their hold on the subject population.[15]

Jews and Judaism

According to Mattias Gardell: "Antisemitism is prominent... in the worldview of Michael Hoffman II".[1] Hoffman described the bringing of the libel charges in the case of Irving v Penguin Books and Lipstadt as "another revisionist weed pushing itself up through hairline cracks in the Jewish concrete that covers our planet."[3] Hoffman believes that most Ashkenazic Jews are not descended from the Biblical patriarchs, but from the Khazars. Hoffman claims the Talmud is anti-semitic in its oppressive micro-management of Jewish lives. In writing intended for Jewish readers he stated, "Our mission is your salvation and freedom from the shackles of Talmudic evil and oppression. With regard to you, our attitude is one of pidyon shevuyim.[16]


Hoffman is also the author of They Were White and They Were Slaves: The Untold Story of Enslavement of Whites in Early America.[17] According to Derrick Jensen, Hoffman is "overtly racist" and "attempts to make the case that the enslavement of whites by commercial interests in Britain and the Americas was worse than the enslavement and genocide of Africans... perpetrated by those same interests."[17] Jensen said "Hoffman's analysis is seriously flawed" but that "his scholarship is impressive, and the story he tells is both interesting and horrifying".[17]
