Two Vics, Many Causes, One Perp [Now with Graeber Quote]

“Attempting to fight a 21st Century battle using early 20th Century thinking and tools and not even realizing much less accepting it, is a losing posture.” –McCoyote

A lot to cover, but much will have to wait. For example, the Barrett Brown case has changed dramatically. His two trials have been canceled and he is being re-arraigned on a changed set of charges on April 29th. I’ve learned a bit more about Brown, but that deserves its own post which I’ll get around to some point soon. A little appears below as side note.

Additionally, the CIA torture report, in limbo for over a year, is going to be partially declassified, sections to be determined by–wait for it–the CIA.

Today, though, I’m going to return to discussing some of the more exotic aspects of what I’ve referred to as COINTELPRO and MKULTRA in a blender, or NKINTRA, the ‘intra’ indicating a covert effort toward domestic control of the national narrative and therefore national, and by extension to a degree, international, opinion.

Today’s post is going to concentrate on two very different victims of NKINTRA. I’ll begin with the one that will be easier to believe, to grasp for most and then move on to the one that would tend to get lost in the shuffle.

An early member of Occupy…

BoingBoing, “David ‘Debt’ Graeber evicted, implicates NYPD intelligence, claims revenge-harassment for OWS participation,” Cory Doctorow, 3 April 2014:

…has been evicted from his home in New York. The circumstances involve the fact that the apartment was in his mother’s name, that she was critically ill, and that the coop board reportedly gave him the runaround when it came to accepting the paperwork for getting his name on it.

The problem for most of us, of course, is connecting the dots between his role as an activist and the actions of the coop board. Our typical {and by the way, outdated} mode of thinking on this is that there would have to be some financial link or motive for the board to do so or it would simply be the man’s imagination.

It is, of course, quite possible that there is such a conspiracy. It would not be at all unusual for a coop board in NY to have one or more Wall Streeters on it and they would notice the presence of someone outspoken on the subject.

But this story is very, very similar to the stories of countless people who lay claim to being the targets of Organized Stalking. As I’ve said many times before, there are distinct parallels between OS and abusive programs like FBI’s COINTELPRO as well as aspects that can be traced back in the public record of CIA’s MKULTRA. In a very recursive way, the idea of making people seem crazy in public is itself also connected to both programs. In fact, part of the insult-to-injury portion is getting screwed and then facing the unappealing choices of being ridiculed/labeled mentally ill for suggesting conspiracy against rights, a law on the Federal books, and suffering in silence. The latter contains no possibility that the culprits will ever face justice while the former undermines credibility.

In any case, I believe a person who sees the case of ‘Debt’ can see that there might be motive. Where it gets more confused is how it could possibly be accomplished, and once you start down that longwinded and twisty path, the question of effort versus payoff comes to mind. What did the Deep State gain by screwing over ‘Debt’? “Where’s the cost-benefit analysis, Phil?”

What did they have to gain? Plenty. It intimidates others who might be sympathetic to the Occupy cause. It neutralized him or degraded his effectiveness, if only temporarily. Time is money. It also distracts his supporters who now have to spend time writing/tweeting about it as a show of solidarity it rather than the crimes of those Occupy seeks to expose. Further, it serves to inflame and that in turn creates more situations that the Deep State points to and goes to Congress with hat in hand securing more funding and contracts. Diabolical, isn’t it?

By the way, similar story with Barrett Brown’s father, who was ruined financially by what Barrett describes as prosecutorial over-reach when a business partner broke the law with regards to flipping land. I only learned of this recently. This happened years ago. The case against the elder Brown ended with the judge apologizing. But of course the damage was done at that point.

I’ll remind again, I, too, lost my home though the specifics related to that dealt with gay marriage not having been legal in New York at the time. Broken up and thrown out, there were no legal agreements to be reached. And yet this happened with a Democrat in the White House.

To the other point raised above, what did it cost the Deep State to pull this off if, as ‘Debt’ suggested, it may have had the involvement of police intelligence? Nothing. The tax payer paid for it. That many police departments have become “embedded” with CIA, FBI, Homeland Security and have hired private security firms as consultants, like those studied by Project PM and known to do dirty work for special business interests, is not news; not even debatable. It’s reported and confirmed. This means that many police departments, on top of increased militarization, have also become counter-intelligence apparatuses as well as potentially tainted against First Amendment users who criticize Wall Street, Monsanto, the US Chamber of Commerce, Dow Chemical, etc. Trickle-up economics at work.

Now imagine, rather than this house-theft happening to ‘Debt’ or some other member of Occupy, the only motive for doing so is to train the people who pull off these hostile acts. Would a person with no political bones in their body ever have a chance of being believed? That’s the case with many so-called Targeted Individuals. The typical pattern begins with what appears to be the sudden onset of mental disturbance. This is usually followed by estrangement from family, the bonds often stretched thin because they don’t tend to believe the claims about psychological harassment that the target makes. Indeed, some of the claims that are made are unbelievable, which is precisely the point.

The confusion caused by the covert bag of harassment tricks are designed to leave no evidence, to irritate the target, and to undermine the target’s credibility. Alternate versions involve honeypots to lure away spouses combined with other stressors placed on the marriage resulting in the target being forced out. Another is loss of employment resulting in the inability to pay the rent, mortgage, common charges, and/or maintenance fees. Some combination of these are also sometimes employed.

Which is partially what brings me to the next victim. She is not so much like ‘Debt’ as she has more in common with Aaron Swartz. I only have the FFCHS newsletter as guide for the details and have been unable to find any news articles on it but this is what FFCHS says:

Monday, March 31, 2014: Death by Hanging of Susan Watkins

As many of you have heard by now, we experienced a grisly loss this past week of one of our most important members, Susan Watkins, a very professional and knowledgeable Volunteer with our Legal Committee, who was found hanged in her house on Monday, March 31, 2014 by her

Although it is being labelled a suicide due to the writing left on her wall which said: “They watched me by satellite while I killed myself,” many are not convinced that that’s what occurred. Personally, I find it odd for someone to speak of killing themselves in the past tense.

Several days before this event, Susan sent an email to some of us with contact information for her sister, the executor of her will, her landlord, and Dr. Staninger – “as the Government harassment/torture increases from time to time.”

Therefore, it seems either she felt really threatened or was planning this herself. Either way, as someone pointed out, it is obviously murder by the perpetrators.

It’s incidents like this that underscore that what we are experiencing is nothing short of a secret holocaust.

Note: I don’t know Susan’s background, why she might have been targeted, why she thought that she was, etc. My condolences to her friends and family for their loss.

I also don’t know if she was subject to home invasion and murder. Not impossible these days. But…

The obvious things that may crop up for many: Aaron did not make claims about being watched by satellite {though if you include the possibility of any intercepted communications via telecom, that’s potentially indirectly, perhaps poetically, the case}. And Susan is making claims that she could not prove.

Let me try to make some sense of this and why I think it possible they are both victims of some method close to what I’ve described on this blog.

Susan may have been subject to different forms of harassment, different covert regimen, than Aaron may have been.

My point here is that deception, and that includes dissemination of disinformation, is part of the strategy. I do not doubt that both Aaron and Susan were driven to suicide. Where I may disagree with both the mainstream view of former and the OS community of the latter is the likely how.

This is only one of many hypotheses I’ve written up here, but let’s dwell on the surreptitious drug version for a moment. And let’s pick on Clonazepam (Klonopin) while we do so. Note, there are other drugs with the same listed side effect, but this was the first that Google and the FDA provided for me:

“May cause suicidal thoughts.”

Now, let’s not bother too much with precisely how that occurs, but acknowledge that obviously, the drug is not sentient, does not whisper into one’s ear like Hannibal Lechter. Rather, it is a reportedly rare side-effect that can cause one to dwell on those thoughts. This perhaps as a result of invoking a particular mood, by stimulating the wrong part of the brain, or by inhibiting a part that regulates for healthier thoughts. Don’t know and for these purposes don’t care. From the perspective of someone going through that, it only matters immediately that this is the case, not the neuroscience behind it.

Recall again also lest your brain, dear reader, drift toward the question of how, that CIA hired stage magician John Mulholland for exactly these purposes, that there was a weapon discussed in the Church/Tower hearings that could fire a dart that the target would not notice, and that we are sixty years on since. This time has included walking on the moon, the nuclear weapon, the Internet, and the ever-shrinking microprocessor as achievements in the meantime.

Back to the point, what would that feel like? What would it feel like to have a drug forcing your brain to have thoughts on you involuntarily? Especially ones that are telling you to destroy yourself?

Probably like they were being beamed there via satellite.

Conversely, without the conditioning that perhaps Susan received and perhaps Aaron did not, like your world is crashing down on you. Like the Universe hates your guts.

God, the Universe, Luck, or Fate: the incredibly corrupted’s best alibi and camouflage.

Note that I am a proponent of electronics being capable of doing similar psychological and physiological changes from a distance. I don’t discount the possibility of that being the case. There is plenty of evidence of research in this field and some working capability.

Take the US Navy’s SANGUINE, for example, being able to induce drunkenness symptoms electronically. That tech alone is one example of many that is just too little known by the public at large. While the possibility of neighbors buying or building such devices and making each other fall down is partially a legitimate concern {not to mention costing the liquor industry some business for the big backyard cookouts}, the larger danger is having not only technologies like these in the hands of the greedy Deep State, but even the mere existence of it controlled and kept from the public collective as well. It invites abuse and the ability to conduct things like traceless assassinations. That is exactly what the Church/Tower commission was looking into and seeking to see did not get abused for political and personal gain reasons, as well as conducting affairs in accordance with international law. *

My other point, possibly as a matter of survival, is to focus less on how and if and accept that
there are ways, that it is happening, and that motive and precedents may have to be enough to at least have a serious discussion about it. We know there are covert ops happening. We don’t know their extent due to secrecy.

I focus on the whys in order to show how it might be done, to show it could be done. It’s less important than if, but to get to believing it could-be requires some discussion on how. I hope we can move past that.

In case you’re still thinking that there’s some body, some portion of the system that would regulate this, would prevent such abuse, see the link below regarding the court stating that it cannot rule when national security and war are concerned. And then consider how 9/11 has altered war and national security, how literally criticism can be considered harming national security because it may result in a change in policy. Can you wrap your head around that? The system is irrevocably broken. Secrecy hides abuse, abuse exposed causes secrecy. Criticism of abuse is said to cause harm, silence causes abuse.

FireDogLake, “Court: Improper for Judiciary to Decide Whether Killing US Citizens with Drones Violates Due Process Rights,” Kevin Gosztola, 4 April 2014:

It is amazing sometimes just how smart the Deep State is.


* To a degree. I think most people would agree that intelligence gathering sometimes involves breaking some laws {less than you might think for the majority of it which uses publicly available sources}. Where that line gets drawn, finding out what is happening versus attempting to mold the world to ones own ideal, absorption of information as opposed to disseminating it–precisely what the newest GCHQ revelations seem to indicate a strong desire to do–becomes a very fundamental, global human question.
