BBD – Yet Another Border Crossing That Wasn’t

If you thought the car coincidence in the previous post was odd, note the mention of Border Patrol.

There’s this guy. Let’s call him Herman.

Herman is about 6’5″ and likely nearly 300 pounds. But he is a simple but gentle giant. Never seen him angry, though I don’t know him all that well. Let’s call him a friend of a friend visiting from out of state.

He likes beer. The funny thing is, he is one of those people who I absolutely cannot tell the difference as to whether he is sober or has had several beers. There is no detectable difference in speech or movement that I observed. This lead me to think that there is no difference, that he holds his beer pretty well, because the guy can really slam them.

During last night’s festivities, he disappeared twice from the location where the rest of the crew were. By the end, he was basically MIA.

Eventually he called and I, as designated driver, was able to determine his whereabouts roughly. I calculated how long it would take me to reach a good landmark: the local train station. Told him I’d meet him there.

When I reached it, he was nowhere to be found. I drove down the direction he would have been coming but didn’t see him. I turned around and headed back to the train station and called him again. He said he was walking on the railroad tracks.

This was especially alarming because as I approached the train station, the railroad lights were flashing, the alarms blaring, and the mechanical arms were down.

“You might want to get off the tracks,” I said. “The train is coming.”

“You see that train?”

“Yeah. I’m right next to it,” as it zoomed in front of me. Not a passenger train, this was cargo.

He let me know when the train was going by him. After, he started on about a tunnel.

“You know where the train just went into the tunnel?”

“Not really. You do know that I can’t drive on the train tracks, right? You should just turn around now and come back–“

“I’m going into the tunnel.”

“I’d really strongly advise again==”

“I’ll make my way back. Battery is running low. Gotta hang up.”

“Uhhh…”

So I start the drive back, thinking.

Where does that tunnel even go? Let’s see…direction… Shit. Canada.

That’s it. He’s dead. We’ll get a call in the morning. Best case scenario, angry C&BP drop him home. Of he gets shot by US BP. Or he makes it far enough he gets shot by Canadian BP. Or he gets held by US for two days or Canada for two weeks..

Must have been an hour after that the phone rings again. He has met up with US Border Patrol. They had a camera somewhere near the tunnel. He’s lost his wallet in the tunnel. I get his location and head out yet again.

After I pick him up, he related the following, with perhaps just a little embellishment or filling in the blanks. But just a little.

He got tired of the tunnel, walked back out and called the police because “he was lost.” When BP arrived soon after, he was already on the phone with the dispatcher. There was a fence between him and the BP lady.

She told him that he needed to get out of there immediately.

“What are you being mean for?”

“You need to get out of there.”

“That’s no reason to be mean…”

He handed her the phone through the fence and let her speak to the police dispatcher.

“Look, you’re in an International area. You can’t be in there. You have to get out.”

“But you don’t have to be mean. I lost my wallet–“

“Sir, I’ll get you the phone number of the train company and you can call them tomorrow.”

“But you don’t have to be mean.”

“I am not being mean. I am following procedures. Now, please…”

He climbs the fence.

“You didn’t have to be mean about it.”

“Stop saying that!”

I gather he would have been arrested but–not shitting you==some guy who “escaped” from the hospital ran up, IV still in arm, bleeding all over the place, demanding an ambulance.

So, how was your evening?

BBD – Quickie Plus Buy Echopraxia

Regarding some portion of this:

October 17th, 2014 at 8:29 pm:

rifters.com/crawl/?p=5276#comment-42833

Within days:

Car 1: battery dead, overheating and an as yet unknown third problem.

Car 2: Something burning under hood.

Car 3, “rescue car for Car 2″: flat tire.

Coincidence?

The least you can do for Canadian sci-fi writer Peter Watts, beaten and pepper-sprayed at the border by US C&BP and then convicted for the “privilege” is to buy his new book, Echopraxia and rescue him from CanLit.

Echopraxia is a remarkable hard sci-fi work with tons of action, thought-provoking debates, and a mix of science and poetry for which there may be no equal. Plus zombies, vampires, aliens, and transhumans all done with care for plausibility. So buy it.

Don’t make me start a rumor that it contains secret messages to the Rebellion in order to get the DoD, FBI, and DHS to buy it!

Once you have accomplished that mission, go read the others. For free!

More Surreptitious Intimidation?

I apologize for this. I know it will both upset some people and tend to undermine my credibility. Faced with lying or ignoring something so obvious {to me…I know this is possible}, I don’t see a choice.

First, see the result of Matt DeHart’s immigration hearing. He has a second one coming and therefore has not yet been ordered back to the US with finality:

National Post, “Alleged Anonymous hacker Matt DeHart ordered deported from Canada,” Tristin Hopper and Adrian Humphreys, 21 October 2014:

nationalpost.com/m/wp/blog.html?b=news.nationalpost.com/2014/10/21/alleged-anonymous-hacker-matt-dehart-loses-bid-for-asylum-in-canada

An early member of the hacker group Anonymous, Mr. DeHart said that six years ago he came across sensitive government documents uploaded to one of his servers detailing an FBI investigation into select practices by the CIA.

He deleted the file, but several months later the DeHart family’s Newburgh, Indiana, home was stripped of all its electronic equipment in a police raid searching for child pornography.

Important to recall the stakes. Believe that both organizations are very much desirable to keep a wrap on whatever the document said. Matt’s torture allegations would seem to support this hypothesis.

Now read about the big news out of Ottawa yesterday:

Globe and Mail, “Suspected killer in Ottawa shootings had a disturbing side,” Colin Freeze and Les Perreaux, 22 October 2014:

theglobeandmail.com//news/national/suspected-killer-in-ottawa-shootings-had-a-disturbing-side/article21252419/

And the interesting part:

Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, the slain 32-year-old suspected killer of a Canadian Forces soldier near Parliament Hill, was a labourer and small-time criminal – a man who had had a religious awakening and seemed to have become mentally unstable.

Mr. Zehaf-Bibeau was born in 1982 and was the son of Bulgasem Zehaf, a Quebec businessman who appears to have fought in 2011 in Libya, and Susan Bibeau, the deputy chairperson of a division of Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Board. The two were divorced in 1999.

When, in December 2009, I was watching the developments on the Squidgate situation, I noted–but thought it too ridiculous at the time–that the same week that Watts’ attorney tried to get the trial moved to Detroit was the same week {Christmas} that a flight to Detroit had a potential terrorist on board who was thwarted by a Dutch citizen after the man was not stopped due to, we were told, a database error by a CIA subcontractor. Given all else that happened, I am not sure now that that was so far-fetched.

Likely, the main difference between you and me is that you don’t know that it is possible to make a human do something like this, and/or you cannot imagine people who would do it without remorse, have so little care for the safety and health of others. This is the Deep State, folks, or as it has also recently been referred to, the Double Government:

Boston Globe, “Vote all you want. The secret government won’t change: The people we elect aren’t the ones calling the shots, says Tufts University’s Michael Glennon,” Jordan Michael Smith, 19 October 2014:

bostonglobe.com/ideas/2014/10/18/vote-all-you-want-the-secret-government-won-change/jVSkXrENQlu8vNcBfMn9sL/story.html

What’s intriguing about that is the longstanding, largely unexplored practice of privateers funding covert operations. William Pawley was one such notable individual. In other words, millionaires and billionaires {and corporations?} sometimes fund CIA covert action. How often this occurs is not known.

Given the enormous growth of the private NATSEC sector, we can safely assume this occurs with private contractors as well. This was the heart of what Barrett Brown was working on before he got incarcerated.

Re: the nuke situation mentioned in the article, also see Nixon, Kissinger, etc. aboard Air Force One drugged with LSD on the way to Moscow which derailed talks with the then Soviet Union as detailed in A Terrible Mistake.

I look for inspiration wherever I can find it. I realize, in contrast, it may seem childish or a bit crazy. Though I’m sure there’s a better quote, probably something out of Moby Dick, maybe a good song, this was the best I could do on short notice.

MKULTRA Documentary and What We Need to Know

Watched this last night.

National Geographic, “CIA Secret Experiments,” 2008:

channel.nationalgeographic.com/channel/episodes
/cia-secret-experiments/

Video:
youtu.be/gxiojvmaPGg

It includes how we got from Dachau to tests on the NYC transit system, LSD experiments on prisoners and Johns, Ewen Cameron at McGill, lethal Sarin nerve agent testing in the UK as motive for murdering Frank Olson, etc. It also mentions over and over how this may have been an over-reaction to the Red Scare. Finally, it includes discussion of Sirhan Sirhan and the possibility that he was a hypnotized assassin.

Working backwards, as I’ve noted before, I don’t think it works that way. Rather, if Sirhan was in some manner manipulated into being where he was with a gun in hand, they likely exploited his “native” pro-Palestine, anti-Israel opinions and pushed him over the edge. The question as to whether the fatal shot to RFK, behind the ear, was his is left open. In my opinion, if it was a hit, they knew they could not rely on someone so unstable and that shot would have been fired by a professional.

The sheer simplicity of it should help to make it at least a bit more credible. It’s simply pushing, or covert bullying if you prefer, people into actions that they probably would not otherwise perform. PSYOPs, covert harassment, and other techniques {such as surreptitiously dosing them with testosterone as they did to me, by the way this also apparently increases risk of heart attack and stroke in people who already have heart disease at the very least, in order to make them more aggressive} are employed in such a manner that should the target become aware of it, he or she has a very difficult time proving it. Propaganda, in the form of painting the organizations responsible for it as heroes battling against the forces of evil in media makes the likelihood of the claims being true seem less plausible.

In fact, even smart people confuse the scientific method for a means of determining whether or not covert ops are occurring, as opposed to motive, history, and the psychological profile of the planners in and above such organizations.

WaPo, “Gary Webb was no journalism hero, despite what ‘Kill the Messenger’ says,” Jeff Leen, 17 October 2014:

washingtonpost.com/opinions/gary-webb-was-no-journalism-hero-despite-what-kill-the-messenger-says/2014/10/17/026b7560-53c9-11e4-809b-8cc0a295c773_story.html

A ridiculous notion that covert ops adhere to the same principles as claims about subatomic particles. There is no method of repeating an experiment. Once an op is complete, it disappears and there is a sizable, concerted effort to prevent its discovery.

Also, the idea of pushing, or even allowing to be pushed, drugs into poor neighborhoods is not one that should be poopoohed. Nor is it “antiquated.”

CIA makes a big deal out of claiming that they have a solemn duty to protect their methods. And yet it seems very likely that their methods have been out of their hands for decades and are now in the hands of political parties, private contractors, large corporations, and even powerful individuals. And they have done absolutely nothing that I can discern to rectify that situation, which makes them accessories after the fact if not acting as subcontractors to these special interests themselves.

The danger posed includes but is not limited to:

The shootings by police primarily of African Americans, though I believe once a more thorough examination is done that we will find many dead homeless among those numbers as well even if guns were not used as weapon. As with so many Deep State strategies, one can see several here. First, it serves to raise tensions and make it appear through the lens of lapdog media that black people are inherently violent. This in turn motivates and mobilizes racist and cryptoracist forces among the public at large. Further, should there be a massive public failure in terms of trust in the police to do their jobs, there are mercenary corporations waiting in the wings and whose fondest dream it to place armed mercs on every street corner. In fact there was one company tried to do that during the 2008 or the 2010 midterm elections in Oregon if memory serves, only to discover and become embarrassed because the state in question does not use physical polling places. Finally, it creates more fear that can be taken advantage of and plays into Limbaugh’s desire to see America fail simply because his favored Deep State puppet wasn’t elected.

And that’s just one. As I’ve noted before, I believe that the hopes set in driving me to violence was to help foster a similar perception that gays are prone to terrorism as they have succeeded in doing with Muslims if you listen to the loud minority among even atheists like Dawkins, Harris, and Maher.

And here I thought the Baptists were just as bloodthirsty as anyone else. Maybe the Methodists, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Lutherans, etc. are watering down the numbers.

Next, regarding the NatGeo piece, you need to recall that MKULTRA went operational at least in part under MKSEARCH in the early 60s. None of that is covered, or very little without mention of the program name, in the 1977 Senate hearings on the former. Next, also note that MKSEARCH and the, in my considered opinion, more promising electronic manipulation were not covered at all by the Senate committee who held the hearings and published their report on MKULTRA. While again the Red Scare was likely the persuasive argument here, consider again the next point. The citizens of the United States of America were, among the smarter variety involved, always among the targets intended where manipulation was concerned. This is not only mentioned in the introduction to the CIA’s manual on guerrilla warfare but is also apparent in the Department of Defense’s emotional contagion tests performed on Facebook and other social networking sites.

If information is power, then disinfo is a removal, a denial, a diminishing of power. When it is directed at the public at large, then, it seeks to undermine the power of the people. This is not an “accident” of Islamophobia, not a clever covert op to protect the populace from disease and climate change. These are the intentional acts of people keenly aware that they are leaving the 99% out in the cold. That there may be those among them who believe the hype, the disinfo, the propaganda, is also in the intro of the guerrilla warfare manual.

Finally, I would be remiss if I didn’t again mention that there was also research extending well beyond the early 60s, which is when the Senate stated that it ended.

Dreams

Regarding this old post, I’m adding this:

Wikipedia, “Videos and Audio Recordings of Osama bin Laden,” last updated 14 October 2014:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Videos_and_audio_recordings_
of_Osama_bin_Laden

See December 13, 2001.

And reiterating what I saw on CNN the day it aired. Afghanis were dreaming about the Trade Center attack prior to its occurrence and OBL said there was one man talking about it he considered killing in order to preserve operation security.

Recall again Charlie Wilson’s war:

And companies and universities working there in the 90s looking for energy there.

I’m feeling too lazy to retype the rest.

The Locals

Two kind of quick pieces regarding potential local and/or state corruption that naturally rubs elbows with the national kind in places.

Mind you, I don’t much care about local and state corruption. It wasn’t Snyder ruined my life. That was Bush and Obama and people who work for them in some combination of actions and inactions. I am noting this to get this out of the way, off the back burner.

ASYLUM

The first involves the local woman whom I’ve already explained is paying the price for foiling someone’s plan to shoot up an office of a Pharma company on the West Coast back in 1999. Though I would take issue with many of the woman’s beliefs, she is able to function, able to care for herself. One also needs to keep in mind that a vast majority of Americans believe in the existence of angels. Assuming one is among those who believe that is not so, there is one obvious delusion that is held by a majority. So what is the norm in that case?

The same extends to all kinds of subjects and we largely have TV and cowardice to thank for it.

Anyway, I’m not alone in that. Two doctors, one from this county and one from the next one over, concurred. I’ve seen the paperwork. In fact, as previously blogged, I attended the court hearing where they were submitted to the court of John D. Tomlinson along with “Bundy Ranch Man,” as I referred to him.

However, Tomlinson did not, for reasons I cannot yet establish, agree with the two doctors and assigned her some public “assistance,” the extent of which she has yet to determine.

On the face of it, this sounds like…what? Socialism? Liberalism run amok, the State trampling the rights of the individual for some perceived greater good. Certainly, especially given the crazy behavior we’ve seen in every corner, especially the spate of shootings by police, it would seem on the face of it that mental health should be given a bigger priority. In fact, in what seems like a bizarre I’mInLoveWithObamacare move on the part of our governor, it seems as though that may actually be happening despite some funding misunderstandings.

But I seriously doubt it. What do I think is happening? Know how the private prison system has shifted a large chunk of the financial burden to the prisoner and her or his family and friends? You knew that, right?

Or how about how there are these new retirement groups who take all the federal money, social security, etc. in exchange for housing a senior citizen later? Quite an interesting prospect: “I’ll pay you now to take care of me later.” What could possibly go wrong?

Well, if this woman were to lose her rights to take care of herself, she would have mandated services provided to her, many of which are–you guessed it, didn’t you?–outsourced to the private sector. I mean that’s quite the scam, I get to deem you mentally unfit and may have private interests in where your disability, social security, and ultimately assets wind up.

This is the next wave in vulture capitalism destroying the middle class. And this woman wouldn’t be in this position if those who tried to “Manchurian candidate” or Ted Kaczynski her cousin into going postal at his former job had been brought to justice. See how it all rolls down hill where the Deep State is concerned?

KEEP FLYING

The other bit involves something I’ve also already alluded to but left out the details pending the finalization of the settlement.

The Squidgate juror’s husband–and she herself to an extent–was discriminated against, subject to retribution over blowing the whistle at the St. Clair County Airport and cost cutting.

Now, what do you suppose they cut corners on? Was is some silly FAA or NTSB requirement for paint, or lights spaced a particular distance, or some bureaucratic paperwork requirement they shirked regarding how often the restrooms were cleaned? You know, that Ralph Nader crap the GOP always complains about.

No. Of course not.

They were faking the reports regarding ice and relative traction on the runways. Quite literally a plane crash was possible. Noting this got the Squidgate Juror’s husband labeled a troublemaker.

They reduced his hours due to–they said–Obamacare, even though he himself was an exception as both Native American and a Army veteran. The emails discovered showed a blasé attitude toward the whole thing, a serious attempt to run him out, and even a paranoia of a violent reaction that had them getting the State police involved that I mentioned previously. Those encounters in turn resulted in the Squidgate juror seeing her car insurance premiums going up significantly.

The County very quickly moved to settle without arbitration the morning that the arbitration was to occur. Though he got the check, they took out taxes. I’m not clear on whether or not that was kosher–was this a settlement or a paycheck?–but it reduced the amount and there had been no mention of that in the meeting itself.

Finally, the Squidgate juror herself lost her job. Though this was more about opportunity on the part of her employer–he’s on the airport board–it was likely had she not been who she was, she could have kept her job. However, though it remains to be seen how it will turn out, she has started her own business and being away from an increasingly frustrating call center–companies that cannot perform are increasingly outsourcing complaint lines further separating themselves from reality resulting in even poorer performance * –so that’s not all bad.

* The new American exceptionalism: do shitty work and lie. US government and corporate America continue to show the path to the bottom of the toilet bowl.

Also: have added many Squidgate-related links at right, though there are still many more to add. May have to compile them into a tab up top instead, but there they are for now.

How I Know That They Are Full Of It

My travels and travails have provided many insights.

This is about just one of them. Probably the most important one, at least for the moment.

Currently, there is a debate regarding the Koran between those atheists, secularists, and agnostics who think the words in the book are sufficient reason to torture and murder people–and though they might use different words, that is what it means–and those who don’t coupled with some Muslims who seem to be trying to say that murdering and torturing people upsets people. Who knew? In addition, there are many similar passages and events in the other books that comprise the Abrahamic religions. In this case, it is that Maher and others seem to be trying to say that there is something different, that it is a lack of enlightenment on the part of the world’s Muslims that is the problem.

I question our enlightenment.

What did I learn from my interaction and subsequent brainwashing where ‘Janus’ is concerned? What, when coupled with over half a century of research and tests on disseminating substances conducted by the CIA and Department of Defense, means, that–ridiculous as it sounds–we could have near world peace in a month or six? And what does it say that those who are familiar with these means and methods steadfastly refuse to use them?

Working backwards, it means, of course, that they don’t want anything like world peace. There is too much money to be made, too many political {and religious, see below} goals to be achieved, too many opportunities to spread Mickey Mouse and Starbucks to the nonbeliever, now with Richard Dawkins as John the Baptist to help spread the Gospel of coffee and cartoon rodents.

Right. The many tests, whether you’re talking potentially Pont St.-Esprit, the Hawaiian and other places crops tests, or those subway tests in NYC that the Mayor never bothered to tell people were happening because fear is good for power grabs.

Then there’s MKULTRA, MKSEARCH, and the myriad other projects designed to see how we can manipulate human behavior for the real purpose to be achieved, as mentioned in the intro to the CIA Guerrilla Warfare Manual:

This concept of guerilla warfare as a political war turns Psychological Operations into the factor that determines the results. The target, then, are the minds of the population, the entire population: Our troops, the enemy troops, and the civil population.

It is only natural that people like Dawkins, Maher, Harris, etc. would be targeted as well.

If, on the other hand, Dawkins would say, “Climate change is real and the only solution that the scientific community has come up with is population reduction. Sadly, this means some portion of the world population must go. It is simpler, from a pragmatic standpoint, that we use the radicals within our own power structure: the radical Catholics among the Joint Chiefs of Staff whom investigative reporter Seymour Hersh described as thinking themselves the Knights of Malta; the sizable Mormon contingent who joined the CIA in the 1980’s when it was determined that foreign missionaries who were already in place and spoke foreign languages would make useful additions, as reported in the New York Times when this occurred; and the wealthy evangelical Christians in the Religious Right movement–started in part thanks to the father of mercenary Erik Prince–without the approval of whom, no politician can be elected or remain in office. Because these groups are untouchable, we, the world’s top atheists and scientists have no choice but to hitch our wagon to theirs until such time as the population is more manageable. What could possibly go wrong?”

At least that would be honest.

Even George Lucas and Robot Chicken know the result.

For something more serious, see ambassador Sir Nevile Henderson, who kept telling London that Hitler was just swell.

Or should I just launch into Niemöller quotes?

Right, so we could definitely poison or drug massive amounts of people at once if we so desired. Easy to do via plane, drone, covert ops.

The next point, here’s again that 1955 MKULTRA draft memo from the appendix of the Senate report:

11. Substances which will produce “pure” euphoria with no subsequent let-down.

12. Substances which alter personality structure in such a way that the tendency of the recipient to become dependent upon another person is enhanced.

Mind you, this is as illegal and likely somewhere almost as unethical and immoral as what we’ve been doing, eg raping women with broken bottles and blowing the children apart with drones. It’s exactly the kind of thing that worried Aldous Huxley as well. But I figure as long as we’re killing the concept of the individual anyway and giving way to the multinational as God, this is merely the touchstone that shows that they have no interest in peace, merely pelf and power from war and chaos.

Because, folks, that was the most remarkable thing. My life was literally disintegrating before my eyes, I was being constantly harassed, and I didn’t care because I was also drugged or had some electronic device used on me that had much the same effect.

Got that? Between the moments of euphoria there was, “Oh, it’ll all turn out fine…it must.” Because as neuroscientist Sam Harris surely knows, mood–and to a large extent personality–comes from brain chemistry. The fact that the person over whom I was brainwashed just turned out to be another sadistic covert ops creep with no regard for civil liberties nor what he is doing to his country isn’t really relevant to the point. The point is, it worked. No matter how angry they got me, there was that light at the end of the tunnel to remind me to just survive until things changed.

And that’s how I know our intel community and the Pentagon is full of shit. Peace is a choice, they chose otherwise, and are sweeping the rest of us along in the momentum of their wake.
