A Tale of Two PSYOPs

Let’s have a look at the background on a case, actually several cases. They all involve Ali Muhammad Brown.

CBSNewYork/AP, “3 Charged In Connection With Shooting Death Of College Student In West Orange,” 4 August 2014:

http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2014/08/04/authorities-arrest-made-in-murder-of-college-student-shot-to-death-in-west-orange/

According to investigators, Tevlin was sitting at a traffic light on his way home from visiting a friend when he was surrounded by strangers who robbed and killed him.

Brown pulled the trigger, prosecutors said. Villagran and Williams acted as his accomplices, authorities said.

“They surrounded (the Jeep) on foot,” said Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn Murray. “One individual interacted briefly with Brendan Tevlin and then, from the passenger side of that vehicle, shot at him 10 times, striking him eight times.”

Seems a fairly cut and dried carjacking. But not so fast. Three other murders in Seattle and SPD see it differently. See the link to the court docs in the link below. The link itself is a bit overblown if only that it seeks to tie it to ISIS.

From the docs:

Suddenly a very different picture emerges. Though we don’t have that as motive from the two accomplices in Newark.

One might be inclined to stop here and merely state that–clearly!–the War on Terror and forever wars that the US is engaged in are exacerbating the terror problem. The whole thing is making us less safe, not more.

Perhaps that is why you have on the one hand political motives mostly only in the attention sphere of law enforcement and gun crimes in the attention of the public.

But that, that discrepancy, is why I think this is even more notable. The lines between radical jihadism, violent crime, and–to those who think of these things in those terms–race become intermingled.

But only to law enforcement.

To the rest of us, this was another tragic gun-related death…actually a series of them. Note that Said was Muslim, may have been gay, but in any case was working in the Somali community in the fight against HIV.

Brown himself was a registered sex offender.

What is the result if, as I’m lightly suggesting for now–because I’m just not sure yet given the limited information, that this is an attempt to convince the public of one thing and the police of another? You wind up with a distrustful, paranoid, believe-they’re-protecting-society, armed, tool of the State on the one hand, and an angry, paranoid, distrustful, believe-they’re-protecting-society, unarmed if taken to the logical conclusion, protesting, “enemies” of the State on the other. This is, I believe, a recipe for Civil War from which only the Defense and NATSEC industries profit while political agendas unfriendly to the average citizen get pushed through under duress.

This matches up nicely with CNN’s “alleged” agent provocateur action in Ferguson noted in the previous post. What doesn’t make sense is why FOX and the war hawks in DC aren’t doing exactly what the second link is suggesting: tying it all to ISIS. It is bizarre that it’s not being hyped every day.

This is, again, very similar to what JTRIG/GCHQ was talking about in the leaked slides: using psychology and sociology to create changes in the real world through the Internet. It’s not that the Internet is taken seriously, or should be, in terms of what “happens” there between people arguing, etc. It’s that it provides information such as news upon which we form opinions and then make decisions. * Control the narrative, and you control it all.

* At least that’s what we say we do. More often we look for what confirms beliefs we already have. While it may seem I do that, and I do, it’s because I became convinced–and it wasn’t easy undoing decades of US indoctrination to the contrary–that there is a Deep State and that it does not intend a pleasant future for the many, merely a select elite few.

Some might argue, “But what about all the good they do?” My response to that is there is no whitewash, no good deeds that overcome the systematic destruction of personal liberties, of mass thievery and corruption, of a broken system that operates in reality nothing like is advertised.

A few bad apples do ruin it all. We’re all PSYOPed to some degree.

That’s All One

A brand new yacht, and a finder’s fee…


There’s a lot I want to say and probably will forget some of it as I write this. Part of the reason for this is my outrage. Last night, after the grand jury decision in the Michael Brown shooting case was read, I was horrified to see the actions and hear the words of a few debased individuals. There seemed to be no low that these reprobates would sink to. I am, of course, speaking about the CNN ground reporting crew in Ferguson, Missouri.

Not really kidding. You can see some of what I live-tweeted last night in this tweet-thread.

Not only did they make the news about themselves getting tear gassed followed by saying how surprised they were, how no one saw that coming, and yet they all had gas masks handy and took to interviewing each other; not only did they make crass statements about marijuana; not only did they at first reveal that witnesses statements indicated that the burning car they focused on for much of the coverage was actually caught on fire by a poorly aimed tear gas cannister and then later fail to mention that, but we also saw one of these “reporters” push a woman. Was CNN trying to create the news by exacerbating tensions?

Well, why not? The first Gulf Was was what saved the first 24-hour news network. Anderson Cooper interned at CIA. That’s something everyone should remember as they elevate him to Bob “Navy Intelligence” Woodward. Think of the MOCKINGBIRDs, won’t you?

Hilariously, they had the camera aimed at an undercover at one point. I assure you he looked very much like one of the crowd…and what was he up to all night? Soon after, they were asked to move away from the police line. That was when they got tear gassed.

I’m not sure who to root for in this case. Nevertheless, much mirth was had at the expense of tear-gassed glory hounds.

This also sparked a few heated discussions around the boob tube. Of course, that is the point. Who do you side with? Blacks, or the Boys in Blue? As if tools of the State operate all on their own and don’t get readily thrown under the bus in order to protect higher-ups.

While it is very likely bad…really, the DA not only failed to make a recommendation to proceed to trial to the jury but also spent a trial’s worth of time convincing them that Wilson acted appropriately…that Wilson and Brown did not get a trial, let’s look at who else hasn’t been indicted and see if we can’t see the bigger picture here.

First, I remind folks of the Gary Webb story. I also discovered recently that the film company has done a really crappy job of promoting Shoot the Messenger. The reasons are obvious. As it is with CNN and its ties to the CIA, so it is with Hollywood. Anything that criticized the War on Terror and the War on Drugs–and really this is both–can be done while breaking one’s arm patting oneself on the back and at the same time hiding it from view with the other appendage. That’s the armchair liberal for you, the neoliberal. Pretend to help but go along to get along with biggest hoax, the biggest PSYOP, the biggest shellgame criminal operation in the history of man. Please the Deep State while pretending to oppose it is the occupation of way too many people these days.

And I note again the increased poppy production in Afghanistan and the drug hub, despite incredible US military presence in Honduras. I note this is especially ironic given the POTUS’ comments in the wake of the decision: there is no excuse for violence. Coming from one of the most violent administrations in history, that was a sure sign of zero credibility.

Also insert Cass Sunstein slur regarding his idea of increasing paranoia among the American people. While there certainly is reason to be concerned, the disinformation campaigns have not been helpful. Indeed, the Ferguson situation itself may be a PSYOP. Stay with me.

What else do I want to say? That I saw this coming. Here’s a short piece, a quick conversation regarding how I see it:

“Wasted”

July of 2013. Not difficult on the one hand since we already know that ALEC, who has operated in shadow since the 1970s and the existence of which was only revealed forty years later, was responsible for a lot of the “stand your ground” type laws. This points us in the direction that our oligarchs, our plutarchs, our puppet government and its private partners want us to be: at each others’ throats. I’ve said it before, but that addage about the rich one day only leaving the poor the rich to eat forgets that the poor will eat the poor first and once the numbers are more amenable, well, the Emperors of the world can give us a thumb’s up, throw us some scraps, and suddenly it’ll all be forgotten all those dead people of color, those foreigners, those intellectuals, those dissidents, those gays and queers, those atheists, the homeless and the destitute, and whomever else they can rile our rage up against.

On the other hand, this actually happens a lot to me. Think about that and try to come up with a logical explanation that doesn’t involve ESP or the existence of the supernatural. Unlike Jules Verne and Peter Watts, I don’t go interview professors and read long technical papers about where it’s all going. How then? Hm.

Though you aren’t likely to take it seriously, I must bring up that intelligence and defense contractor/investment firm Carlyle Group–once having been held by the likes of the Bush and Bin Laden families, run by the likes of Jim Woolsey, now partially invested in by the UAE–was also investing in earbuds intended to be marketed to African Americans. I repeat: while the earbuds themselves would merely be the conveyance, the possibility that involvement in the engineering phase could easily mean making certain that they can carry subliminal sound. The jury is out on that tech–really it is, see again the 1984 Congressional report and the between-the-lines/as yet unexposed DoD research portion between that and hypnosis–but the possibility of just causing rage is high. Furter, Carlyle is getting involved with fast food. Perhaps a combination of subliminals and some by-product known to increase irritability?

If you reject that out of a lack of evidence, fine. If you reject that out of a “they wouldn’t do that” despite having been lied to consistently on things like surveillance, almost fine. Can’t expect everyone to grep the depths of corruption and depravity.

But if you reject that out of a “not possible” notion, that is not fine. You are woefully ignorant and behind the times. Project MKOFTEN, for example, involved CIA compiling all the side-effects of pharmaceuticals. There are a few drugs, such as Chantix, that can cause suicidal ideation. Let me restate that: a drug that can make you think about suicide, like right out of The Happening. Not depression; thoughts.

Sounds like science fiction, doesn’t it? Tell me, do you behave precisely the same when drunk or high? Does being tired affect your behavior and abilities? Why wouldn’t a drug, then? Why not even–according to the US Army–microwaves that have been found to cause pharmacological effects in humans when used a certain way?

There is, however, a growing perception that microwave irradiation and exposure to low frequency fields can be involved in a wide range of biological interactions. Some investigators are even beginning to describe similarities between microwave irradiation and drugs regarding their effects on biological systems. For example, some suggest that power density and specific absorption rate of microwave radiation may be thought of as analogous to the concentration of the injection solution and the dosage of drug administration, respectively. Clearly, the effects of microwaves on brain tissue, chemistry, and functions are complex and selective. Observations of body weight and behavior revealed that rats, exposed under certain conditions to microwaves, eat and drink less, have smaller body weight as a result of nonspecific stress mediated through the central nervous system and have decreased motor activity. It has been found that exposure of the animals to one modality of radiofrequency electromagnetic energy substantially decreases aggressive behavior during exposure. However, the opposite effecrts of microwaves, in increasing the mobility and aggression of animals, has also been shown for a different exposure modality.

US Army, “Bioeffects of Selected Non-Lethal Weapons” {PDF}, 17 February 1998.

Imagine where they’ve gotten to in 16 years.

There are so many ways to increase aggession and some just involve “emotional contagion,” that is controlling the narrative so as to cause emotional reactions in groups through psychology and sociology. This is very much what JTRIG/GCHQ talked about when discussing leveraging online activities to have effects in the real world; cyberspace energy converted to meatspace. That nexus is a portion of what I refer to as spookspace.

As I’ve noted before, there was some decent evidence that I had been slipped testosterone or something that increases levels of that or similar hormones when I experienced rapid hair growth while living in Minneapolis. This coincided with some strange werewolf PSYOPs, one of which occured previously in Toronto. This implied the involvement of something with international reach, which would preclude, for example, NYPD. Clearly it was more likely FBI, CIA, maybe even DIA, and/or private contractors. As you can see, the operation{s} also contained an element of emulating insanity, which is part of the point: to make the witness, in this case me, less credible. In the case of Donald Friedman, he became obsessed over his shoes becoming dilapidated. Not at all unusual for someone who is a federal target.

If you haven’t already done so, read the previous post. It isn’t just Aaron Alexis and Myron May {both African American, by the way, as was Miriam Carey, though she makes a less dramatic example due to having struggled with severe mental illness for such a long period of time prior to her death; Alexis and May did not} making these claims; there was deposed Honduran President Manuel Zelaya talking about being targeted with them while inside an embassy; there was Donald Friedman whose FOIA lawsuits got the Army document I quoted above; and there was GITMO detainee Shaker Aamer. Where Aamer is concerned, I am amazed after what has been done to him that he was even able to describe the experience as he did, stating that it might just be a trick, a PSYOP, and is being done some other way than from the closet he kept seeing some worker enter near his cell.

Then there’s Matt DeHart, Barrett Brown’s increased agitation that resulted in his being held for two years {sentencing postponed yet again until December}, Ibrahim Todashaev, Rush Limbaugh’s lady friend punching a police officer, that time that not-yet-a-Senator Al Franken was so enraged he was unable to speak coherently on CNN’s Crossfire, and others.

Any of this getting through?

“…incite hatred and nationalism…”

{Source}.

It is not just that this is being done to a few people. As we move forward, it seems clear that there are going to be more and more people these kinds of things happen to and that there are going to be more and more casualties as a result. It is also used as justification for things like surveillance which, conversely, is used to pick the targets and to determine the best methods to turn them violent, as well as to direct their ire in the general location and/or time desired. This is, again, COINTELPRO and MKULTRA in a blender. There are many, many more programs and operations that we still don’t even know the names of, but those are the two most infamous and must serve as our handle to that which we cannot know as of yet.

This is a very, very bleak situation. It is also becoming increasingly dire. It is for those reasons as well as it being so key to the successful fascist conversion sought by the Deep State, that I am calling for more attention to this and similar issues on the parts of journalists. I know how it sounds.

But if I’m right–and I am–there cannot be any kind of win, any kind of change, any kind of real responsibility and oversight, without this being exposed. There just can’t. No matter what wins and/or advances are made by court and legislative action on things like mass surveillance, all it takes is one more terror attack to swing the politicians and judges back to being fearful and erase it all.

You see? It’s the key to success.

Who You Gonna Believe?

A considerable number of developments in the Myron May/FSU shooting case since my last whimsical post. First, I received an email stating that TI {targeted individual} group FFCHS {Freedom From Covert Harassment and Surveillance} was one of eight or ten recipients of packages from Myron. There was a conference phone call. I dialed in, listened to the three page cover letter being read verbatim. I hung up before the Q&A began.

First, you should know that Navy Yard Shooter Aaron Alexis also sent messages to FFCHS. He had stated that he believed that he was being targeted by ELF {extremely low frequency} weapons of some kind. FBI stated that that was not true but offered no other explanations.

The package to FFCHS was intercepted by US Postal Investigators before it arrived. They provided FFCHS, however, with the three-page suicide note. I took notes about its contents during the phone conference. Most of what I had to say about this can be found in the twitter thread beginning here:

Now, let’s move on to mainstream media coverage and then some notes about what I’ve learned during the past four years or so.

Levine, Mike and Meghan Keneally, “What We Know About the Packages Sent to Friends by FSU Shooter,” ABC News/Good Morning America, 21 November 2014:

http://abcnews.go.com/US/packages-friends-fsu-shooter/story?id=27080439

Connor, Tracy, “FSU Shooter Myron May Left Message: ‘I Do Not Want to Die in Vain,’ ” NBC News, 21 November 2014:

http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/fsu-shooter-myron-may-left-message-i-do-not-want-n253436

First, this is very similar to what former President of Honduras Manuel Zelaya {see MICROWAVE section here}, US citizen Donald Friedman {here} and Gitmo detainee Shaker Aamer {here} all suggested was being done to them. Note that I fully believe it possible and/or probably that whatever it is also affects cognition or that additional means are applied to do that. Why? So that the targets do not seem credible when they complain. This is known as the Martha Mitchell effect, named after the spouse of a Watergate co-conspirator who was locked away, called mentally ill by Nixon administration officials to try to keep a lid on the bugging.

Next, while in Minneapolis, I found out that the police department as a matter of course asks people being processed two questions. “Do you believe it is possible for someone to project their voice into your head?” and “Do you believe that someone is projecting their voice into your head?”

If you are still behind on technological advances from fifty years ago in some cases, there’s more. There’s defense contractor Sierra Nevada Corp.’s MEDUSA {MOB EXCESS DETERRENT USING SILENT SOUND, see MEDUSA section here} system designed to do almost exactly what the Twin Cities PD is asking about. There’s RAND Corporation’s–most recently in the news because of James Risen’s torture/interrogation chapter about whistleblower Gerwehr in Pay Any Price–extensive history of research on this topic. There’s CIA’s many, many related projects, subprojects, spin-offs. There’s a whole slew of proven-to-exist technology, some based in part on the Frey effect–demonstrated in the 1970s.

The ramifications of this are wide, far-reaching, and deeply disturbing. One can imagine that even those who might steadfastly oppose such activities for political and financial gain to also be opposed to exposing it. What if we did this…do this…to terrorists? What if the reason that some places are so violent is because we are stirring it up so that we later have an excuse to fund war, programs, and go grab the resources of other sovereign nations at the same time? What if the Deep State is really this out of control and lacking in oversight?

What if?

Damned if you do and damned if you don’t. This is why all of the rational explanations, all of the calming, soothing speeches, all of the calls to take a studied, controlled approach, and all of the fighting of symptoms of our main problems are doomed to fail. Unless, until, and if we take the bull by the horns, stop being afraid of being called conspiracy theorists, encourage protection of whistleblowers in spite of bullying by our unbelievably corrupt government and its private partners, we will relive the same over and over again like the Twilight Zone or Groundhog Day. This is the crux, the cornerstone, the Achilles’ heel all rolled up into one.

One well-aimed journalistic shot and you can kneecap the planet. How much more of this are we going to take before we call it what it is? COINTELPRO and MKULTRA in blender with 21st Century spice added in.

How many more lies do we have to endure? How many more cover-ups? How much more deception from the so-called Department of Justice.

Barack Obama claimed that he saw his primary job as one of protecting the American people. Allowing these covert practices to continue on US soil is the opposite of that.

Gotta love the juxtaposition.

Going Post-Postal

Been doing some updates to Wicked Game, as one might note from some of the posts below. I’m up to chapter 11…or was…when I realized that I had borrowed my citation format from some place that was not compliant with the major acceptable formats. I certainly was not going to use APA style. I almost decided on the Vancouver style out of general protest. But the Chicago Manual of Style seems the one I should be using. I’ll have to start over and get them the way I want them.

In looking it over, I happened across this:

Goodstein, Laurie and William Glaberson, “The Well-Marked Roads to Homicidal Rage,” The New York Times, 10 April 2000: *

nytimes.com/2000/04/10/us/the-well-marked-roads-to-homicidal-rage.html?pagewanted=print

But the killers do not just snap. An examination by The New York Times of 100 rampage murders found that most of the killers spiraled down a long slow slide, mentally and emotionally. Most of them left a road map of red flags, spending months plotting their attacks and accumulating weapons, talking openly of their plans for bloodshed. Many showed signs of serious mental health problems.

Now, you’re probably thinking that I think that is complete BS. Not really. Lack of mental health care, along with an under-educated society that doesn’t know what to do with the occasional social dominator who is a sociopath and takes pleasure in rallying groups to push such individuals even further over the edge, and a big pharma complex that may not always provide products that do what they say they do or have side-effects such the potential rubberbanding effect that makes the situation on the whole worse. Certainly, this is a factor in rage shootings and other acts of violence.

However, you’ll also find a long list of things these 100 shooters were interested in. Satanism and the occult, video games, etc. A factor? Possibly, but more likely a symptom.

But is mental health the only factor? No. This article reminded me of a book having been mentioned not long ago. A book by Mark Ames, who you may note a few posts below, noticed how a bag lady wound up shooting a CIA drug money man when he was no longer useful.

Ames is, well, gonzo. And I am not in a position to judge him on that {just take a look around}. To see what I mean, just look at the photo at the top of this article:

Ames, Mark, “This Is Why Workers Shoot Their Employers,” The Exiled, 1 September 2009:

http://exiledonline.com/this-is-why-workers-shoot-their-employers/

We live in Dickensian times again, folks, except that ours is a degraded Dickens: our Dickensian victims don’t evince any of the pathos of Dickens’ 19th century characters, because officially, none of this is even happening. And if it is happening, it’s their own damn fault.

You’ll note from this that Ames does not say that CIA, subcontractors, or other agencies are responsible for every shooting that occurs. Neither do I.

While not everything that bad happens can be laid at the feet of government or the megacorporation, the point is that many of the big problems, the ones that affect many of us, actually can. Economic problems and warfare are by definition the province of these two, large, honking segments of human activity and have far more say and sway on those than the individual.

So Ames isn’t wrong either. Economic factors, I would add with the pressure of trying to comply with the many things government and Wall Street tell us that we should want to be happy, is another big factor in what sets some of us off and propels us into violent action. This is not untrue.

It is when there is a point, a profit, an enemy to squash, a loose end to take care of, a false narrative to create, that I do–and we should–look for more.

Just sitting looking through Twitter today, I ran across two articles regarding Florida. The first I saw that there was yet another shooting at a school. In this case, Florida State University.

The other was on how Southern Florida State has a growing anti-war movement, specifically targeting CENTCOM, aka JSOC, among other things. One of the most secretive and closely guarded secrets the US holds, JSOC runs covert ops utilizing at times any and all of the rest of the intelligence community and, one may rest assured, pretty much any corporate entity it decides that it needs.

Now, was the first story related to the second? Who knows? Maybe, maybe not. If they had wanted to send a stronger message, I suppose they’d have arranged it on the same campus. But was the campus itself the target, or the state? Or someone else? Or was the anti-war rhetoric beginning to spill over to FSU…were the protestors looking to get a state-wide movement going? Fear immediately makes many people decline to participate in such action.

They were counter-recruiting.

Further, doing it at the same location would make even more unsuspecting eyebrows go up.

So, while I don’t know the answer…and it doesn’t matter why the shooter thought he or she was doing it…it doesn’t matter what police and the psychologists offer up for why he did it. Given ubiquitous surveillance, a general lack of respect from our defense and intelligence sectors towards humans in general, creating a psychological profile of someone and then setting them off would not be a difficult task for these people. They have been caught lying over and over, proven to have profited personally from the increase in security spending, and have done similar things in the past without a single person being held accountable for it. Which all point to it being possible and that any attempts to find out the truth would be defended with utmost effort.

It’s an asterisk right now. Maybe there will be some more telltale signs and maybe there won’t. **

See? It’s not all about the CIA and similar organizations. Just when I say it is.

* Yeah, no. Gonna use the commaless date format. Extra commas are less clear, so a modified CMOS it is.

** As I wrote this, saw an update. Friends, acquaintances of shooter puzzled, thought he was the sweetest guy.

The Truth About Torture: A Rebuttal

With regards to:

Weekly Standard, “The Truth About Interrogation: The enhanced techniques work,” Stehpen F. Hayes, 14 November 2014:

http://www.weeklystandard.com/articles/truth-about-interrogation_819024.html

First, let me say that I agree wholeheartedly that oversight and officials who ordered, were briefed, and approved are both duplicitous and partially responsible. As I’ve noted before, I hate defending them, the CIA asked the Bush White House three times for clarification on legal points with regards to enhanced interrogation techniques. This is missing from the discussion.

However, as it was when, for example, the Nixon White House asked CIA to spy on American war protestors, there is some evidence that they were already torturing people, or having it done by foreign ISes, before the request was even made. There are layers to this entire scandal, and that is one of them.

The problem with the piece, and I am not impugning the “John Beale” here, rather that it serves as a limited hangout hinging upon a strawman argument because it does not take into account the totality of the situation. I don’t doubt that Mr. Beale’s experience lead him to the conclusions that he drew, rather that his experiences are limited to his experiences.

One indicator that CIA may be using it for this purpose:

Writing under the pseudonym Jason Beale, he has produced a provocative 39-page document in an effort to counter the narrative pushed by Democrats and amplified by journalists eager to discredit the program. The document—which Beale says was reviewed, redacted, and cleared by a U.S. government agency—does not reveal Beale’s precise role in the program. A spokesman for the Central Intelligence Agency would not confirm that the CIA was the agency that reviewed Beale’s document.

And, by the way, Mr. Beale, whoever he is, is saying something very close to what John Kiriakou said initially before recanting: that the EITs worked and they weren’t trying to throw him in prison back then.

There are several problems what the article as whole is saying. I detail some of them beyond the fold.
