Cow Pokes

Before I get to the meat of the post, a quickie. Last evening, due to having been separated from employment, the Squidgate juror was home during a period in which normally she would not. This resulted in a “Wonder what’s on TV at this hour?” urge. That in turn resulted in viewing the guide.

Hilariously, right at the bottom of the screen, beginning in just a few minutes, were the words “CIA Mind Control.”

The channel, the American Heroes Channel, is one I’ve caught bits and pieces of. Typically I’ve found the shows to be very selective in what they say on a given subject. For example, think there was one on James “Whitey” Bulger without a single reference to his participation in CIA LSD experiments early in his career while in prison.

I had no intention of watching. I expected this show to likewise be crap. However, I was curious enough to request a viewing of the blurb text within the guide to see what flavor of feces one would likely be served.

This request resulted in the show being tuned to. I was now bracing myself for a plate of poo.

It centered mostly around Sirhan Sirhan and RFK. I was almost immediately surprised to see fellow Twitterer Lisa Pease (@lisapease) being interviewed. The show wound up being not as bad as expected. I even found myself partially agreeing with a skeptic, only brought in toward the end of the show, who pointed out a few weaknesses in the programmed assassin theory.

First, like the JFK event, this event may involve some magical bullets. Apparently Sirhan had one .22 revolver containing eight bullets. Five people were hit, some more than once, and there may have also been bullet holes in walls. This implies a second or more shooter, which fits better with my view of how this stuff would work today.

Speaking of today, what is perhaps also missing is when and where Sirhan would have been kidnapped and programmed. I am assuming that that would have been necessary even in the late 60s, though it is not today, given advances in PSYOPs, drugs, electronics, and the general body of knowledge surrounding the manipulation of perception, thought, and action. Again, I expect that the “crazy” individual is typically the lightening rod, the scapegoat and that when a specific target and goal is required, they cannot be relied on to achieve success. Rather, there may be professionals who avoid being identified during the confusion and the resulting investigation.

The skeptic–whose name I didn’t jot down–brings up Sirhan–a Palestinian–hated Israel and viewed RFK as an Israel supporter. Indeed, this is exactly the kind of person one would choose for such a job. His only role is to show up, have a gun, shoot the gun, and take the fall. This, rather than undermine a larger conspiracy theory, would seem to support it.

Additionally, he notes that Sirhan was likely lying at several points. This also does not discount other involvement, but neither does it prove it. Just note that I am attempting to be fair to the skeptic. Because I am going to be very unfair to Chuck below.

There is also a few snippets of 20-year veteran Robert Baer being asked about it. He thinks it is impossible that CIA could have such capability and he not be aware of it was the gist. Again, when it comes to, at least in the 60s, a complete programming of human behavior to the point that they could perform an action and later forget having done it, I agree. When it comes to manipulating, altering behavior, however, I don’t. The point of, or one point of, a covert op is to either conceal any involvement/action altogether or, when that is not possible, to place the blame on someone else.

Further, if I were a senior CIA manager and knew there was anything even close to this kind of capability, the last person I would let in on that would be a quasi-disgruntled, high-profile former spook with ties to Hollywood. While someone with so many contacts and reverent power might seem likely to learn about it, there is still compartmentation and need-to-know to consider.

Even further, and I say this from different-but-similar experience, you just about have to go through Hell in order to let go of all the preconceived notions you have had jammed in your head all your life. How much more difficult for someone who has been through whatever it is they do? In fact, it would seem more likely they would use something like whatever the US version of acoustic psycho-correction on someone like that, as they likely do on law enforcement investigators.

John Marks, FOIA champion and author of The Search for the Manchurian Candidate also makes an appearance. Would love to know what he thinks about all the other subprojects unrelated to interrogation, brainwashing, LSD, etc. especially with regards to African attitudes and voting given all the news related to these two subjects today.

I also note that the show was copyright 2006. How things have changed.

All of which was a lot longer than I intended as a teaser.

Now I turn my sights to the so-called Science Channel. I’ll skip over all the ghost stuff for the moment and instead focus on the UFO stuff I saw this morning. Specifically, cattle mutilations on Unexplained Files.

The main “character” on this show is one Chuck Zukowski. Zukowski states that he is a former deputy sheriff, having served as one from 2002-2011.

Now, I’m of two minds about even mentioning this. One look at Chuck and my spider sense went off. He’s got “that look.” It’s not, unfortunately, that anyone with “that look” is necessarily a current or former spook. Nor is it that current or former spooks all have “that look.” But there is enough correlation that I will blame pattern-matching for noticing as opposed to what the real explanation likely is.

I’m going to assume most folks are familiar with the specifics of cattle mutilations with regards to the evidence, etc. This show did include, albeit only briefly, the explanation that strikes me as the most likely one. Again, I missed the dude’s name who presented it. But the reason for it…oh, the reason for it.

Witnesses have on occasion reported seeing black helicopters. While this may tend to reinforce the notion of some kind alien conspiracy, I rather think known, confirmed history can better explain it:

Japan Times, “U.S. Army tested biological weapons in Okinawa,” Kyodo, Staff Report, 12 January 2014:

There’s a lot more on that subject as well. See subproject 146, for example.

In the case of cattle, you may have testing, counter-terror results for the lab, examination or cover-up of mad cow disease, and other possible nosiness.

Anyway, this prompted me to find out what Chuck was doing prior to 2002. Not available on in his LinkedIn profile nor anywhere else I can find.

Things that make you go hmm and…


Things that make you go yeehaw.
