It’s Kind of Circular

Before I launch into the point of yet another “Oh yes it is” post, please take note of the following. First, a news article about a man who shot at drivers in Michigan because he believed that they were out to get him.

Crimesider Staff, “Mich. highway shooter sentenced gets 6-to-10 years in prison,” CBS/AP, 4 February 2014:

Casteel’s attorney, Doug Mullkoff, did say before Langford-Morris announced her judgment that Casteel was “very troubled” at the time of the shootings and didn’t wish his actions “upon himself or the victims.”

“Raulie Casteel did not choose mental illness. It chose him,” Mullkoff said. “He had no history of mental illness before this period in his life. He never was diagnosed until after his arrest.”

During the Livingston County trial, Casteel testified that he shot at the other motorists near the busy Interstate 96 corridor between Lansing and Detroit over a three-day period in October 2012. He said he did so impulsively and because of wild, uncontrolled delusions and paranoia, believing the other drivers were part of a government conspiracy against him.

The shootings terrified the region for weeks, leading commuters to change their driving habits and forcing schools to keep children inside at recess.

While the terrorism charge brought by the state attorney general’s office covered all the shootings in Livingston, Shiawassee, Ingham and Oakland counties, Tuesday’s sentencing came in a case brought by prosecutors in the latter county for shootings that happened there.

Casteel had faced 60 charges, including attempted murder, in Oakland County for shootings in Commerce Township and Wixom.

His lawyers and family members favored the plea deal, because it allows him to receive the ongoing mental health counseling he wants. Defense attorney Doug Mullkoff has said his client was diagnosed with delusional disorder, a condition associated with maintaining false, persistent beliefs despite evidence to the contrary.

I agree with Doug. Of course I’ve also met Doug. He was the Squidgate defense attorney.

Next, before I reiterate all the various methods the unscrupulous could employ to get results like this in a human being, the undisputed history of having researched it during the Cold War, and the probable motives for doing so, yet another method recently came to my attention, this time via a second Naval Research document. What I write here is by no means an exhaustive analysis, merely another method that jumped out at me and fits well with some of the older ones described in past posts.

John D’Andrea, C.K. Chou, Sheila A. Johnston, Eleanor A. Adair, “Microwave Effects on the Nervous System,” Naval Health Research Center Detachment, January 2003:

System

Blood-Brain Barrier (BBB)
Permeability The blood–brain barrier (BBB) prevents high molecular weight substances in the blood from getting into the brain. This barrier protects the brain from foreign toxic substances but allows passage of the molecules that are necessary for metabolism. A number of causes, such as edema, anoxia, hypertension, and ionizing radiation, have been shown to induce BBB changes, often increasing permeability of substances to the brain. The radio tracer method of Oldendorf [1970] is often used to allow for a quantitative measurement of test substance penetration. The RF induced BBB permeability increase was controversial for many years. Now most researchers believe that the permeability change is associated with an increase in temperature induced blood flow.

–page S127, 22 in the PDF.

Simply put, the BBB prevents many bad things from getting into the brain. Increase the permeability–that is the amount and kinds of substances and/or pathogens that can pass through this barrier–and you can give a person any number of diseases and conditions, many affecting cognition, mood, and perception, and some of which can result in death. This is yet another traceless method of killing someone or at least ruining their life, turning it into a living hell.

You’ll note the inclusion of hypertension alone as a possible cause of increasing the permeability of the BBB. This actually may explain why isolation and trauma–as noted in the CIA’s brainwashing document–can result in schizophreniclike symptoms including hallucinations. Read if for yourself.

Apart from this, you also have the myriad substances CIA tested on some witting, some unwitting subjects, most notably LSD-25, but including probably 80 substances altogether.

Then there is the Frey effect, also known as the radiowave hearing effect or the microwave auditory effect. It was first demonstrated in the mid-1970s. More recently, the US Army’s CALL {Center for Army Lessons Learned} had “voice-to-skull devices” defined on their website but at some point they took it down. The Federation of American Scientists kept a copy. {You can also note again the two DoD info memos released on the same day: one to circumvent the OIG, the other to define damage from non-lethal weapons as having to be permanent and physical in the eyes of the Pentagon}.

This effect can make a person think that they are crazy because they either hear voices or experience strange involuntary thoughts that seem to come from someone or somewhere else. This is where tinfoil hat comes from.

Moving on, a short list of infamous people who were also subjects of CIA mind control programs or operations: Ted “The Unabomber” Kaczynski, “Whitey” Bulger, Lois Lang. What else do these three have in common? They all killed people.

Now for a list of people I’ve met. As I noted some time ago, I found myself working six hours a week at a plant owned by the Koch brothers. I found this, once I discovered who owned it, strange and a little alarming. Strange, because I couldn’t imagine how they missed me. A little alarming because I ran a PSYOP on some of the Kochs’ top lobbyists while living in Minneapolis. Though I was not told specifically that if I did that that my life would be returned to me, that the harassment and hellishness would stop, I was desperate enough to try almost anything to find some semblance of normal. Of course, things only got worse because the Democrats don’t care about human beings any more than Republicans do.

But how did I wind up working at Koch {as an outside contractor}? A young man whom I went through orientation and drug screening with suddenly seemed to go crazy in February of 2013. He called in to work claiming that “they” were after him, had given him a flat, and had murdered his aunt on the Interstate. His supervisors told me that they did find a story about a woman shot but that it was not his aunt.

He became increasingly disturbed, stopped answering his phone, and became a no-show at work. I was called in to cover part of his shift.

Then there are the many, many so-called TIs {targeted individuals} I’ve met and/or interacted with on the Internet and telephone. They, on the one hand, typically make some claims that I don’t believe to be true about how and why bad things happen to them, but on the other have some experiences that I and other people have also had without knowing about those experiences.

It’s a process that practically covers itself up. You are harassed to the point of madness and then madness takes over and pushes mere perception to the breaking point. Whether you were actually drugged, are experiencing the side-effects of sleep deprivation, emotional exhaustion, and the changes that occur in the brain via the BBB and the stomach via stress changed in the bacteria there, which wind up sending too much dopamine and/or serotonin, you can no longer trust your own judgment, so why would the police, your friends, family and co-workers, or reporters? It’s murdering a person without actually killing them. It is the science behind “driving someone crazy.”

The first question, or hurdle, is why isn’t there more evidence that this is happening now? Where is the Edward Snowden of dirty tricks and covert ops by proxy dupes?

The first thing you should know about covert field operatives is that they have almost certainly broken the law. They are, by virtue of their occupation, open to blackmail. They don’t tell on their employers because their employers have the dirt on them. This was what made the OPM hack so disturbing; it contained the dirt on many intelligence professionals. Side note: If it is truly in the hands of the Chinese, then you can bet that the two main political parties in the US also have a copy, and vice versa. Things often play out very differently than rhetoric might make it seem, and China is still a maker of cheap stuff for the US.

So, there’s our first problem: Whistleblowers aren’t likely because they will be smeared by the corporate media. These smears might drown out the message.

Next, they of course are brainwashed; subjected to the same kinds of propaganda that many of the rest of us are, but with much, much, tighter control. For example, we know that the ODNI forbids all intelligence employees from reading The Intercept. They are more likely to follow orders in the first place because that’s what their training did; combine that with “anything that didn’t come from the Director is a Russian|ISIS|Anarchist|Girl Scouts of America plot” and you can just keep on turning a blind eye, assuming that you are in the know despite being subject to surveillance, compartmentation, and the daily force-feeding of bullshit that only smells a little like apple pie.

Then there’s internal security and the FBI to contend with. While little is known about the former currently, there was one chief of CIA security known to wear swastikas. And, of course, the FBI has no compunction about destroying people for their bosses and Wall Street. You’ll find no decency, no sense of right and wrong, no thirst for justice in the Department of Justice of the United States. This is one of the reasons why this is place is so absurd, so comically Orwellian to the point it paradies parody on an almost daily basis.

Now, on to the probable motives. This is an important discussion because people cannot believe something is true unless they can see why someone would do it. Tell them that it already happened during the Cold War and they’ll shrug it off as overzealousness fighting the “Soviet threat.” It is insufficient to say that something outside most of our experiences is happening without also presenting some reason why it is happening.

It is ridiculous to think that CIA HQ did not know that torture didn’t work. It just is. The Agency studied it and frequently noted that it fails to provide valuable intelligence because the subject will say whatever they think that the torturer wants to hear. To ascribe patriotism or ignorance to doing something that made finding the truth more difficult is preposterous. It simply is, there is no other explanation that fits all the facts except that they were looking for any and all excuses to continue expanding the War on Terror. There just isn’t, sorry. It’s not bureaucratic overreach. Someone knew exactly what they were doing: Manufacturing intelligence.

This is an example of what I mean about motive. You can discern them by looking at history, cause and effect, and what has been said about a situation in order to divine it.

The targeting of some Americans by the US intelligence community is pretty much the same. It serves to curb rights because it increases fear of “them” and forces people to trust the “us.” This, in turn, makes even more of these kinds of operations possible.

At the same time, it keeps security contract money flowing. It is estimated that 70% of the intelligence community is private. This means that, for example, of the over $1 trillion spent on homeland security {$1.4T at time of WaPo Top Secret America expose}–the task, not the Department of alone–over $700 billion is going to private spy firms. Some of these firms also do business for Wall Street, Fortune 500 companies, and have various connections to the political elite of the GOP, DNC, and TP movement.

If you want some cold comfort, the idea is to create an atmosphere in which Americans are ready for World War 3. No, really. Water, oil, climate change I’m sure all get bandied about as excuses. Of course, it’s really about distracting us from who is robbing us and who is making some people crazy enough to go out and shoot people because they can’t take it anymore. It’s kind of circular like that.

One of the things that clued me in about all this occurred in Minneapolis, in the early Summer of 2010. During a very unpleasant walk to go sell some DVDs at a pawn shop in order to eat, I happened across an intersection. Across the way was a very large shooting range. I had one of those involuntary thoughts. “Wouldn’t it be fun to go learn to shoot?” Of course, I immediately decided that it would not. But I filed that away and it wasn’t until much, much later that I learned some of the possible ways an intelligence apparatus could make that happen. I also wondered what would have happened if I hadn’t been so damn reasonable, had an inkling already that something was hinky.

On occasion I like to bait a hook to see if I get a nibble. Two days ago, I ended a Twitter tirade {related to the Navy document above} thusly, with a quote from Longfellow:

While out and about yesterday evening, I had this involuntary thought. Keep in mind, though I have followed the man on Twitter for some time, I follow 2,000 people, so I rarely see his tweets unless someone else RTs them. It wasn’t until after this thought that I bothered to see what this John Rain fellow is all about. {And, by the way, there’s a TV series starring Keanu Reeves on the way next year}.

“I want you to favorite Barry Eisler on Twitter. He has the solution.”

Favoriting someone means that every time they tweet, the app on the phone makes it show up as a notification. Currently the app only shows the most recent.

But I was cautious of this bizarre advice that came seemingly out of nowhere. I had already had a swift kick in the groin earlier in the day after viewing my Facebook feed, seeing something I did not need to see all the way at the very top. Sorry, but it’s personal, so I’m not sharing that. I will, however, remind you of MINERVA, the DoD/CIA project to see what happens when you control what people see on social media.

From Wikipedia:

John Rain is a fictional character created by Barry Eisler. He appears in eight of Eisler’s espionage novels as an assassin for hire who specializes in making his victims appear to have died of natural causes.

And that is how the intelligence community of the United States attempts to radicalize its own citizens. Imagine if I thought that advice came from God, the Devil, a dead relative, or a UFO. That’s how they roll. This is what’s happening. I hate being the bearer of bad news, but I hate being the target of this kind of crap even more.

Circular, dude.

You have a couple, a scifi writer and his wife a fantasy writer, who work for the Pentagon on, you guessed it, non-lethal weapons. Meet Chris and Janet Morris:

He is a defense policy and strategy analyst and a principal in M2 Technologies, Inc.

…best known for her fantasy and science fiction and her authorship of a non-lethal weapons concept for the U.S. military.

Janet is not new to this blog.
