Covert Hellscape Exposed

For people who are new here, you’ll find much of my bio drafted over here. Short version is some people tried to harass me into doing violence against others or myself. Why is a bit more complicated, that’s why I wrote most of a book about it. Suffice it to say as far as I know there is no other person making such a claim that explains it in such a way as to leave out torture chambers, Satanism, UFOs, and other MONARCH style stuff you may have heard about elsewhere.

Think of this as the behind-the-scenes audio commentary on a DVD or Blue-Ray. You can read the original here, if you like first. The entire thing is quoted below with explanations intermingled.

(Note: though this is largely fiction, it illustrates how the combination of being drugged with something with effects similar to mefloquine in combination with some other things, social engineering that destroys the semblance of one’s life, and synthetic telepathy can be used in combination as I’ve said they are. Therefore I’m posting it here. Also, apologies for borrowing some of the style–and likely mangling it. Grab inspiration where I can. It’s what we mimics do best).

As it turned out, mefloquine aka Lariam, used by the Navy and CIA at GITMO on detainees at five times the normal dosage, may not be the best candidate for whatever drugs are used to create those mass shooters. * Also, I probably should have used the less-off-putting voice-to-skull over “synthetic telepathy” which most people would find silly sounding.

END OF THE ROPE

I frequently, in 2011 and 2012 or so, said to myself, “If they ever do whatever that inflict-pain-at-range thing they do is for an extended period of time, I will definitely kill myself.” The typical duration in Minneapolis had been about 35-45 minutes.

{And it is very uncomfortable. Think of Myron May and Aaron Alexis.}

However, on 15 August 2012, they did just that. 24 hours straight. That is why I wrote this Wicked Game chapter the way that I did, or at least one of the reasons. And though I might think it needs re-writing, I’ve left it as a reminder of that horrible day, one of the worst days of my life.

Hence the title of the piece being quoted here. You’ll note that I wrote it two weeks later.

“Most times you can’t hear ’em talk. Other times you can.”
Bob Seger

Imagine you are broken.

It wasn’t always so. Not long ago you were on top of things. You were making advances. You had something to contribute. Your were on your way to making a name for yourself. You were somebody.

You can’t quite recall when it all changed. When you woke up somewhere else. When you woke up one morning and found yourself in Hell.

Though I have not researched it thoroughly by any means, one paper I did find suggests that roughly 10% of the human population is resistant to hypnosis. Especially important to note, because subliminal suggestion and PSYOP designed to alter behavior work quite similarly, is why the author believed this to be the case. These 10%, he wrote, have a short attention span and tend to hold very strong beliefs. In other words, the hypnotists tried to change their minds and failed.

But what if, instead of trying the change their opinions, they instead tried to exploit them, expand them…make them more firmly held to the point the person is radicalized? I submit that this could and probably does work. They are more inclined to listen to beliefs that they already hold. It is merely necessary to alert them to the idea that others disagree and fill their heads with nightmare scenarios as to why those other people are both wrong and dangerous to society.

In other words, this stuff can work on almost anyone. You can figure out which categories a person falls into and how to work them based on what we already know to be true: NSA and other agencies collect every phone call, text, email, web search and multiple other electronic transactions and signals and private companies like Booz Allen Hamilton have access to it. In fact, Snowden made it quite clear, he could access anyone’s data from his desk in Hawaii at BAH.

In the quote above we set the norm and suggest there’s been a change. Let’s try to figure out how this occurred.

You vaguely recall starting to stare at phone numbers. License plates. Graffiti. Somewhere along the line, those things came to hold more meaning than the now nearly incomprehensible texts you have pored over for years.

You bounce between laughing hysterically at what Jung referred to as synchronicity, strange coincidences that now pervade your entire life… Sometimes it’s as if the people on TV are talking directly to you.

The subject suddenly loses interest in things that were once important and finds himself staring at numbers, pictures and letters, seeking meaning in that which the brain is saying is important but in all likelihood is not. This is a very common thing to occur in so-called Targeted Individuals in ‘organized stalking.’ I saw a NJSF intern fill notebook after notebook with graffiti, license plate numbers and other similar things in 1989 and 1990. I wound up doing similar things, but frequently stopped myself accepting there was significance due to having observed her doing it two decades previous.

There was even a moment, in December 2009 or January 2010, where I picked up a book of poetry from the 1930s. I read it and saw that it seemed and felt as if some of those poems held some special significance for me, as if the writer had me in mind. Since I knew that was impossible, I simply laughed and put it down. What else can you do when you have a sprained brain? More on the neuroscience behind this feeling below.

Even though you are an expert in your field, even though you should know better, it just feels right, and you know you can’t fight feelings, not forever. So you indulge them.

Holmes was a neuroscientist with a MS working on his PhD.

Random strangers involved themselves in whatever you are doing.

Sometimes these are covert operatives and sometimes they are not. Sometimes there’s even a mix, where a covert operative or two manages to corral a civilian or two in order to A} provide additional confusion and cover, and B} to arrange a later chance meeting between the target and the civilians in the hopes of a violent and crazed accusation resulting in the target’s arrest and being discredited as paranoid schizophrenic.

I had three such interactions with such groups, once in Manhattan and twice in Minneapolis. I was too cautious to cause a stir when, only in the second instance, did I see one of the group again. The third time was an invitation to a gay hookup place which was also known for being dark and dangerous. In this third case I did send an email, I think, to one of my reps, probably Klobuchar stating something about private contractors looking to off me. Of course the real reason for sending it the hope that they would see it, if they were indeed doing that, and back off. I have very, very low expectations of our elected leaders.

You can’t hear yourself think sometimes, while something deep down in the recesses of your mind keeps telling you, if they’d just shut up for ten minutes, you could catch your breath. You could solve this problem. You could figure out why your life was turned upside down and you could start to correct it.

…to thoughts of death and destruction.

And the noise! The noise coming from the upstairs apartment is preventing you from sleeping, from coming up with those bursts of inspiration you did in undergrad, while getting your masters.

Shock and awe. The people upstairs {Anthony and roommate} at my condo in Brooklyn, at the hotel in Port Huron a few nights before the Squidgate trial, and at my first apartment in Minneapolis frequently seemed to be making noise on purpose to bother me. This came full circle when the guy living in the basement came to my apartment accusing me of doing the same to him. The use of voice-to-skull, silent sound, or hypersonic sound being used to make it seem as though there is more noise than there actually is a real harassment possibility. This is why the latter made it into the Mind-Affecting Technology tab; it doesn’t affect it directly but used to harass, it moves in the direction of sleep deprivation and torture.

Additionally, they can easily start slipping ideas in there for violence. And then there’s the usage the Army FOIA reveals: You can actually make a person angry using microwave non-lethal weapons. See also GITMO detainees Shaker Aamer and ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya as two probable targets of NLWs. I was also told that VA whistleblower Kernan Manion, who was fired for explaining the problem and bad response of military officers to suicidal vets, has been targeted with these or similar.

People you once depended on, though you didn’t realize how much until they stopped talking to you, stopped calling, emailing, texting, stopped inviting you to lunch, the movies, parties, sporting events…they provided some refuge…some semblance of normalcy.

This is where it gets a little sketchy. While, yes, a portion of this wedge-driving is due to the target’s altered behavior, they also target the target’s friends, family and co-workers, no question about it. Everything from guiding conversations and web searches resulting in possibly/possibly not accurate articles about mental health {but not necessarily accurate where the target’s case is concerned — see items 1 and 5 in particular} to somehow masking pheromones.

Backing up a moment. While, yes, human beings rely primarily on vision and the even better Technicolor show that the brain turns our more-limited-than-we-think vision into, there is still an olfactory element to the human psyche that may be even more linked to the unconscious than sight and sound. A smell can bring back a memory.

And PopSci once did a great episode that demonstrated that most people actually wind up making dates with people based on their different pheromones. That is, this is at first how we avoid inbreeding: By smelling unconsciously other people’s pheromones to ensure that they are different from our own. Later, when an intimate relationship matures, we come to recognize each other by scent.

Alter that scent, and you may as well be dead as far as your close friends and partner are concerned. CIA looked into ‘aromatic amines’ at the University of Illinois. It’s no big stretch to think they’ve done more with that, made note of others’ research for the dirty tricks department.

More on destroying relationships below.

But when you were trying to talk reason to them, explain that despite whatever is happening to you, you are still you, that you still care about them, they don’t seem to hear what you’re saying.

That is exactly how it often felt for me. One particular conversation resulted in me saying, “Will you listen to what I’m saying instead of what you want to hear?”

One phone call is especially frustrating because of some fat cow walking by when your are on your cell in the park, slurping a fast-food shake and mocking what you say. You have your first murderous thought.

Which resulted in me cursing at her.

You accept that your friends have abandoned you. You try not to hate them.

At least when you realize this was a covert operation perhaps planned under Bush but executed under Obama. These things do not happen, not on this scale, without approval of some kind, however obscured, from the POTUS’ national security board or whatever they call it this week.

It’s especially difficult when you recall all of the times you were there for them.

Fact: I supported my partner when he was laid off. Twice.

Fact: I once told him that if I hadn’t left Tennessee and gone to NYC I’d have become an alcoholic or blown my head off with a shotgun.

Fact: That’s where I am now as a write this.

Fact: I have not blown my head off.

Fact: He threw me out and tried to get me to go there anyway.

Fact: He got married on 11/11/11, after I helped the OFA and DFL with the midterm elections in 2010, after telling me that he would not be doing so until March of 2012. I discovered this on Facebook while leaving Minneapolis and driving to my parents’ house.

Fact: When we were still in Brooklyn, we both witnessed a man laughing like the Joker. He wrote it off as him being cold. I knew it was a PSYOP because of context and I had a better view of the whole thing. WEDGE-DRIVING.

Fact: Barack Obama is a phony asshole who will let you down every time. **

Also fact: Despite how that looks, my ex is a good person. He worked at Google. They had full access to his head and biochemistry day in and day out. By the way, he had a female friend in grad school who similarly seemed to go crazy. He was not looking forward to going through that again.

You recall when they were there for you and wonder what flipped them from “true” to “fair weather” over night.

Of course. This is a waking nightmare. This can’t be reality. Life isn’t like this. This is not how the world works. Ask anyone. You are a pariah here.

You have your first disappointing review of your work. You wonder what went wrong. It seemed to make sense at the time, but your mentor, supportive, nurturing, encouraging in the past, is suddenly cold. He looks at you as if you are an insect or a frog laid open and pinned to a wax surface.

This must be Hell.

Your ex lies to you repeatedly. You try to connect, try to at least maintain a friendly closing, avoid burning the bridge. Maybe one day things will go back to normal. But her every subtext, her every nonverbal action, just screams, “I hate you. I wish you were dead.” You wonder how that is possible. The thought occurs to you, this could be some government program, some cryptic conspiracy designed to…what? Destroy you? For what purpose? You aren’t that important, that voice inside your head says. You aren’t yet somebody…like your dad. Impossible, no motive.

It becomes easier to believe, those who don’t realize things as simple as CIA’s budget being one-and-one-half times the collect-it-all-globally NSA’s, that it just cannot be a government or quasi-government conspiracy. We are programmed to think paranoid people are wrong, not that there might actually be a valid reason to be paranoid or that their delusions might be related to actual harassment such as was seen under COINTELPRO.

And you recall the legal definition of torture…requires being in custody. What happens when everywhere is your prison? Requires permanent damage. What happens if the damage is temporary but unbearable in the present? Requires intent. What if those doing it don’t know why they are doing it? It’s crazy.

Lawyers are always involved. The question of how best to follow the law doesn’t come up with these people, it’s how best to get around it. Those three points: 1} Detained. Not technically in a cell, the back of a police van when harassed, zapped, drugged, ruined, so legally isn’t torture. 2} Permanent damage. Possibly not permanent damage. Even Holmes may recover eventually. So? You people drove him to kill others even if it was only temporary insanity. But not technically torture because might not be permanent. 3} Must be intentional. Someone surely knows. But if you receive one paper cut from 10,000 different covertards and bleed to death, did they intend to murder you?

No, this must be Hell.

Easier to believe. Simpler.

You wake up one morning and put your hand to your head. Your hair feels odd…different. You go look in the mirror and your skin is pale. Your hair is standing straight up. The pallor of your skin makes your lips seem red…like a clown’s. You laugh.

In my case it was actually my hair falling out or breaking off in clumps, which I suppose was supposed to be a zombie thing. This occurred just a few days before the Squidgate trial sentencing hearing. Later, they went with dosing me with testosterone or similar to simulate becoming a werewolf and to increase aggression. I can conceive of using the dirty tricks book to do similar with the Joker.

You give the library one last go. Somehow, you are going to turn that one thing around. You are going to get that PhD. You are going to make your dad proud. He always had faith in you.

No, he didn’t.

That voice again from somewhere in the back intruding on the front.

He only cared about how you reflected on him.

You start to argue with what you think is part of yourself. It’s then that you see him. Some man who reminds you of your dad. He’s right there in the library. You are relieved that at least he isn’t looking your way. He can’t see you in this state.

Keep in mind that this is a very, very short list of PSYOP and methods. There are dozens, perhaps hundreds, of other little things being done. We are just looking at the signposts, the milestones here.

Probably, the above quote is done using V2K or similar. But the target is so off-balance at this point, it would be very difficult to tell where the mass-shooter-making team ends and someone like Holmes begins.

Prime example I’ve mentioned many times before. While walking to sell some DVDs in order to eat, I passed a shooting range and the thought “Wouldn’t it be fun to learn to shoot?” popped into my head. I declined, but can see why some others might head down that path.

It reminds you of other things, it’s not you that’s the problem. It’s other people. You surpassed your mentor. It was jealousy that you saw, not disappointment. He couldn’t understand what your wrote and he was jealous of your ability.

That’s what is wrong! Thats what’s wrong with everyone. They are just too dumb, too ignorant. For chrissakes, the ancient Egyptians studied nerves and humanity still doesn’t get it, doesn’t understand what it is. What do you have to do to break through the morass?

Teach them a lesson.

The target is at the breaking point now. Only a little more will push them over the edge.

This brings up doppelgangers. The main first use for them was to make foreign intelligence services think that a particular person {usually either the CIA officer posing as a diplomat or the potential CIA agent who is betraying their country for the CIA} is in a place other than they are. There were even mannequins and an inflatable “person” to sit in the back seat of a car when followed by the foreign equivalent of FBI.

But then there are also uses in PSYOP. I saw a lot of them. In most cases, I think the point was to confuse and cause me to discredit myself. Sometimes I don’t think I even understood who the doppelganger was supposed to look like, but it was a machinegun of harassment; some “bullets” missed.

“Some men just want to watch the world burn.”

You hear the voice and then the recording with Michael Caine’s voice.

See again the poetry book anecdote above. But it sure feels like it was meant for you.

Suddenly, a young, beautiful undergrad is standing near you. Unlike the man who looked like your dad, she is not frowning at you. She is smiling. It is the first person who smiled at you with any genuine in weeks at least. The front of her t-shirt has Heath Ledger’s made up face on it. She sort of winks, you think, and turns. The words on her back sink into your brain and the letters burn themselves into your eyelids:

WHY SO SERIOUS?

This bitch almost certainly works for the government. What the hell is she thinking? What did they tell her?

Synchronicity.

Though it is an interesting topic, let us recall that Jung had been experimenting with several different drugs at the time he started, for lack of a better phrase, being able to see behind the meme curtain. Most likely, this has to do with how memories are formed. When something is perceived as important, eg it appears to enhance survival/fitness, a surge of adrenalin and other neurochems is released making sure that the brain stores the information. What happens, then, when that surge is going on non-stop due to having been drugged, zapped in the head with microwave NLWs to the same effect, or having problems with gut bacteria due to trauma and isolation? Everything seems to be of the utmost importance. This may also explain the so-called Truman Show Syndrome.

You suddenly know what to do. You’ll be famous. You’ll teach the world a lesson. You’ll share the pain, direct it back outwards. You’ll teach Hell and its inhabitants what happens when they hurt a real man. All of that with one act. You are a genius.

By this time, the rage is so strong it is no longer an emotion but rather an ethos. Judgment is gone and so the target is set on the course others set for him or her. All that remains to do is providing talking heads, talking points, and planting statements in the press promoting “lone wolf” shooter narratives.

A bunch of innocent people die because, for example, banksters are robbing the whole planet. What a surprise. The people who did this now move on to the next target.

* That is, those who are not motivated by crimes of passion that were not the product of intelligence community covert operations or the rampant financial duress many people experience in this cheap labor / long hours {which we euphemistically refer to as ‘productivity’} loving country. As far as I can tell, manufactured violence cases are a small percentage of the whole. However, that government and industry would do this at all under any circumstances at all is deeply disturbing.

** Okay, maybe that’s opinion, but I have some data to back that up.

Horrified, Storified

Two new storifies up regarding my Twitter yesterday:

“And I Feel Fine” is about the political, but not the technological, singularity. CIA is about to check the last thing off of its Halloween wishlist and it spells the end of any opposition to cheap labor, Permawar, corporate and military generated pollution, whatever it is that the multinationals want to keep on doing. The photo is a great example of Optimism Bias, aka waiting for Superman aka “He’s Not Coming, Lol.” (Right?).

“When They Fall” is showing just how quickly antiwar icons can be turned into tools of the military industrial complex. Includes what Monuments Men was about and a hilarious interaction between a famous folk singer and the robot brain of death. {Recall also Sting’s argument with Miles Copeland in Rolling Stone}.

And you can check out, from a year ago, “Insistence-is-Futile.” The story of how I called bullshit on ISIL before Tony Blair did. Note that the photo has apparently been debunked if you can trust McCain’s office at all. It still works symbolically regardless.

BBD – STUXNET Used Domestically? {Updated}

{Author’s note: Find that using this background method, even when really terse, works better. Otherwise, it’s like stating in media res every time. While you might assume you’re looking at some freak accident or coincidence below, there are dozens more I’ve witnessed, making such an idea preposterous if you were there for all of it.}

******

BACKGROUND – THE PLAYERS

It’s like being given the choice to die in Westworld or Futureworld. You can be a poor, bathtub gin drinking, dirt-eating c——-er who has to please the Man Who Lives in the Big Mansion on the Hill lest you lose what little you have to his hired guns; or, you can be a frightened, silenced cog in a dystopic machine that builds neo-pyramids to multinational corporate ‘gods’ regarding whom you must fear even thinking bad thoughts about or be disappeared by shadowy figures neither completely government nor wholly corporate.

Who would you side with? The Penguin or Lex Luthor?

The Kochs

Do I really need to link it all up? Yes, greedy thieves who steal from Native American tribes. Yes, powerful and influential enough to cause federal government shutdowns threatening to cut people off from even being able to eat. Opposed to any and all social programs and controls on industry of any sort. Additionally, their lobbying shows that they have some connection to defense and/or the intelligence community but I’ve yet to learn what that is. They also allegedly did business with Iran, just as Hewlett-Packard under Fiorina had done, Halliburton under Cheney with Iraq and all when it was technically illegal to do so.

The Dems

Let’s look at what will be Obama’s legacy, shall we? Basically, not counting laughable complete bullshit stories like ending the wars, I think there are two things that Obambots will be able to call accomplishments as long as you don’t look to closely.

The first, of course, healthcare reform. The latest rumor, which really makes complete sense once you start reading articles about the Trans-Pacific Partnership and related secret legislation, is that it was enacted to prevent single payer healthcare reform. This fits in better with, for example, everything we know about Eric Holder. Really, Obama has surrounded himself with criminals and we can deduce what from that?

The other is of course the repealing of Don’t-Ask-Don’t-Tell. Hey, I thought it was a good idea at the time as well. But all it really means is that if you’re LGBT, you, too, can pilot a flying death robot aimed at brown people in order to steal their natural resources. Similar with gay marriage {and if you look at the facts, the Republicans and Democrats have about the same record; one of the judges who voted in favor was appointed by Reagan and even Dick Cheney came out in favor before Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama did}: Gay marriage good for LGBT, economy; Corporate Fascist Dystopia bad for everyone except tippy-top elite.

Even if he does manage to close the prison at Gitmo, it will just mean operations have been moved, shifted to some other set of methods, new black sites. This is a shell game that only cares about appearances not truth.

In other words, Obama and the Democrats don’t actually have anything positive to show the 99% during his tenure. At all. His war on whistleblowers and HRC’s clear intentions to continue it, means that there will be no positive change, not without something resembling civil war, and, well, they’ll kill lots and lots Americans before they consider renegotiating a New New Deal.

Conclusion

They both suck.

BACKGROUND – THE JOB

I wound up getting what was essentially the Squidgate juror’s old job as an outside contractor at a paper mill plant when I lived in Michigan. I started in September of 2012 and went through orientation and drug screening with a young African-American man, single father of one. I discovered some months later that Koch had been one of the previous owners of the plant.

In February of 2013, I got a call asking if I could cover part of a shift, one day a week for 4.5 hours each Friday. I checked with the supervisors, we worked it out, done deal.

The young man I had gone through orientation with had apparently gone insane. He didn’t show up for work, said he had a flat tire, said that ‘they’ had tried to kill him on the Interstate, and that they had already killed his aunt there. There was a story about a white woman killed on the Interstate around that time, but as far as anyone could tell, he was not related to her.

Some time in March I figured out that Koch owned this second site, a plastic plant, I was working at. I knew this probably meant I had to watch my step and I did so.

I also discovered that a woman whose job it was to deal with environmental compliance keeled over and died suddenly during a meeting in 2012. Her daughter showed up one day while I was working and I asked the next time I saw the other guard and got the scoop. Apparently a blood clot in her lung or similar, was what the coroner said caused it.

My access to the plant was limited to the front gate, offices, a workshop, and part of the control building. Regarding this latter area, depending on how many people were still inside, I sometimes delivered a list to the folks working there who were doing their shiftchange around the time I got off work.

There was a computer on my desk at the gate but I’ve no idea if the plant’s machinery was on the local network. I don’t think that it was.

By August of 2013, I was looking for some way out. While I’d hardly qualify as a member of ELF, I didn’t feel right about contributing to carbon-death either. I found a reason to go to Chicago, and so I resigned.

A few nights later, after my shift ended, there was a fire at the paper mill. It was FUBAR on several levels, but there were no casualties. It did result in someone else being dismissed from working there, the person they hoped to replace me with, which meant they had to fill my slot twice.

Then, just before my final days, this happened at the Koch plant.

BACKGROUND – CYBERWAR AND STUXNET

Watched this NOVA show a few nights back. Must note that Google and a Koch foundation are among those who fund NOVA.

There’s a portion of the show where they cover the STUXNET virus. As you may recall, it was used to slow down Iran on purifying nuclear material by causing their machines to over-exert and destroy themselves by targeting a part commonly used in manufacturing called a PLC {see below}. Some time later it was, I think, fairly well established, that the US and Israel were behind STUXNET.

STUXNET USED DOMESTICALLY?

And the point at last. What really caught my attention in the show, because of the problem at the Koch plastic plant, was Kim Zetter’s comment:

[Programmable Logic Controllers] are used in chemical plants, they control the recipe that gets put into drugs and chemicals.

*

Again, what happened at the plant was during the government shutdown in the Fall of 2013. The reactor, where the chemicals are mixed, usually yielding a liquid that is sent to another area of the plant, became filled with solid plastic. They had to shut down and have people chisel it out before work could resume.

CONCLUSION

And, again, I had nothing to do with what happened. Why in the hell would I help a government who purposely, viciously, knowingly not only ruined my life permanently but also did so in the hopes that I would go ‘postal’ so that they could sell the idea the LGBT people are more prone to terrorism, adding yet another {notice the pattern here} minority to the ‘list’ of minorities that authority figures sometimes quietly, sometimes openly, accuse of being the ‘bad guys’ ? Not gonna happen, not interested in increasing NATSEC’s market share which is already targeting Muslims, African-Americans and even veterans. Cannot stand these people and consider them to be the worst combination of serial killer, pedophile, genocidal war criminal, radicalized suicide bomber, Spanish Inquisitor, psychotic Nazi human experimenting scientist, parasite, embezzling banker, global drug cartel, dirty cop, and used car salesman that you can imagine.

And who keep throwing me out there as the patsy for things that they’ve done. Same thing in New York when, I think stands to reason, CIA and NSA were spying on my clients and other tenants in the building; they could throw someone to the dogs as phony HUMINT cover for what was most likely and mostly their combined ELINT. And the purpose of the spying almost certainly more to do with insider trading than national security.

This is evil all around and I hate using that word. But what else can you call extreme selfishness, which is exactly what this is, what these people are? I’ll close with a cheesy pointless poem.

No love for Koch;
No love for CIA;
Stuck in a world with both
O me-oh, my-oh, hey.

BBD – My Drone Experience

First, if you haven’t done so, you need to check out The Intercept‘s new exposé on assassination aka targeted killing aka surgical strikes via drones aka UAVs aka ‘birds.’ There are eight articles and I’ve only begun delving in myself. Besides the scoop via an unnamed source aka whistleblower, the graphics are amazing and the design team should win some award along side the journos.

The importance of this story may be underestimated by some. People are ignorant about why, how, when assassination became illegal.

MY DRONE EXPERIENCE

I cannot recall exactly when this was because it was before everything started going sideways in December of 2009 and I started taking note. I’m going to guess it was Spring of 2009, but it may well have been a year before or even the Fall of 2008. I recall it being windy, which implies April or October, but might have been neither.

Worse, I’ve lied to you, gentle reader. At least sort of. And that’s something I’ve promised never to do without a very good reason.

It wasn’t actually a drone I saw, but rather a kite. {Below I’ll link you up to how that relates}.

The movement of the thing was so bizarre that I had wondered fancifully if there wasn’t some unseen method of propulsion onboard, micro-sized and hidden from view. Recalling it now, and incorporating some of the other things… methods and trends…I lean heavily away from that.

Though the thing that kept me from being able to look away was how it seemed to be moving by some means one would associate with a motored hovering device, I think it far more likely that it was simply done with multiple tethers, though I could not see them. It stopped periodically and hovered. Suspicious activity for a “stringless kite.”

This occurred on the avenue of my apartment in Brooklyn and I watched from the little balcony thingy. It appeared to emerge from inside a sunken overpass nearby and made its way all the way up to street level and eventually over a fence next to the large landmark building next door out of my view.

The kite itself was the ‘delta’ style, that is the v-shaped sort. It kind of reminds me of the classic ‘Bat’ kite, but as I recall it was yellow, not black.

Anyway, it was obvious that the wind was blowing hard against the wings because the way it shook. But without a string, it should have made a quick dive upwards and then nosedived to the ground.

Multiple strings? There is a similar trick, actually many, many variants, on how to for example levitate a person and then walk around them and pass one of those big hula hoop things over them to make it appear as though there are no wires. In reality, at least in the old variants I saw in old stage magic books decades ago, the ring is actually has the wires running inside it and has a slit in it, and the magician is merely passing it along the center of the X-shape that are being used to levitate the assistant.

Yeah, like this one.

So could it be with a kite. Multiple tethers from multiple directions giving it the appearance of no one tethering it at all.

Why did they show me this shit? No idea. Probably to mess with my head. I really just rationalized it as some very strange crosswinds at the time. We do that, ignore the seemingly impossible until we can no longer do so.

Why am I bothering to write it up? Two reasons. Because it was such a heavy news day and that, apart from what else I’m going to say on the political end, I’ve little to offer on this subject. Also because I’m still disappointed that I haven’t seen one in action. But then I also wonder what a gal has to do to warrant a black helicopter and I’ve yet to see one of those hovering about either.

Right. What do kites have to do with drones?

Joe Dana, “Who needs drones? Surveillance expert uses kites,” AZ Central, 24 February 2015:

azcentral.com/story/joedanareports/2015/02/24/12-news-drones-surveillance/23963337/

The answer to his question in the title is of course murderers, but we’ll get to that in a moment.

Drones are all the rage. But in the world of forensic evidence gathering, an old-fashioned kite will often suffice. And better yet, kites aren’t subject to the same FAA regulations.

“Drones are here to stay, and they are a very valuable tool,” said Randy Anglin of Lionstrike Forensics. “But kites and balloons have become a very valuable tool for what we do.”

Kites and balloons for surveillance. Makes sense.

Carl Engleking, “If You Can Fly a Kite, You Can Fly This Drone,” Discover Magazine Blog, 19 August 2015:

blogs.discovermagazine.com/drone360/2015/08/19/kite-drone/

{Note: Have had trouble viewing this link since doing so originally and the URL I saved somehow added an identifier that wasn’t there originally and I have removed for you.}

While some businesses are eager to unleash drones and put them to work, one company wants to leash them up.

The Fotokite Phi is a drone, built by Zürich-based Perspective Robotics, for people who have no interest in actually flying a drone. The Fotokite is a fold-up quad with a GoPro payload that’s tethered to a leash, which makes operating a drone as simple as walking a dog.

So that’s the psychotic-government-operatives-showed-me-a-freaky-kite-but-not-a-black-helicopter story.

I survived COINTELPRO 2.0 and I didn’t even get a black helicopter.

Moving on…

POLITICS

Right. But kites don’t much kill.

Matthew Power, “Confessions of a Drone Warrior,” GQ, 22 October 2013:

gq.com/story/drone-uav-pilot-assassination

A later study found that drone operators suffered from the same levels of depression, anxiety, PTSD, alcohol abuse, and suicidal ideation as traditional combat aircrews. These effects appeared to spike at the exact time of Bryant’s deployment, during the surge in Iraq. (Chillingly, to mitigate these effects, researchers have proposed creating a Siri-like user interface, a virtual copilot that anthropomorphizes the drone and lets crews shunt off the blame for whatever happens. Siri, have those people killed.)

And this is where it gets even spookier. They key, per the article, is removing the guilt. So you have a few choices, if you are a murderous psycho among the Joint Chiefs of Staff:

1} You can hire people who don’t have a conscience or who are already homicidal maniacs and try to control them.

2} You can take a more ordinary person and muck about with their brain chemistry or otherwise alter their personalities and neurochems so that they are more like the people in #1. See again “try to control” portion.

3} Create an AI that takes care of the whole thing, adding another buffer between killer and killed.

4} All of which is leading up to use domestically.

Pressing pause here to make something clear. Everything is about the banking system. The 2001 National Intelligence Estimate suggested that the growing gap between the rich and poor was the biggest national security concern facing the US in the foreseeable 21st century. Surprise, surprise, actually chieving this, not mitigating it, has been CIA’s real mission all along.

David Talbot, “NEW BOOK ON CIA MASTER-PLOTTER DULLES, SNEAK PEEK: PART 3; Dealing with Inconvenient Facts, CIA Style,” WhoWhatWhy, 14 October 2015:

whowhatwhy.org/2015/10/14/new-book-on-cia-master-plotter-dulles-sneak-peek-part-3/

Dulles’s job, simply put, was to hijack the US government to benefit the wealthy.

By mimicking the UK’s Gentleman’s Spy Club MI6, we incorporated class warfare as well. Everything must be viewed with this lens on.

Rather than work openly and brainstorm new markets to explore to make the world a better place, of course the Cold Warriors and military industrial complex instead tried to figure out how to create more boogeymen in order to turn a profit for themselves. Of course they also made up reasons in order to create an oppressive Stasi-state ready to silence anyone who complains about this theft, is able to see it hiding behind the empty rhetoric and veil of lies.

Naomi Wolf, “The coming drone attack on America,” Guardian, 21 December 2012:

theguardian.com/commentisfree/2012/dec/21/coming-drone-attack-america

People often ask me, in terms of my argument about “ten steps” that mark the descent to a police state or closed society, at what stage we are. I am sorry to say that with the importation of what will be tens of thousands of drones, by both US military and by commercial interests, into US airspace, with a specific mandate to engage in surveillance and with the capacity for weaponization – which is due to begin in earnest at the start of the new year – it means that the police state is now officially here.

Never has ‘all men and all women are brothers and sisters’ meant so much. By giving active and passive approval to illegal acts by your government when used against people with brown skin overseas, you are slitting your own throat.

It’s no longer about nation states. It’s about multinational corporations and they don’t care where you’re from. You’re standing on or near something they want, so hand it over or die, dumbass. You homo sapiens all look taste alike to Tyrannosaurus Holdings Corp., nom, nom, nom.

That’s enough for tonight.

Hand Bugs: An Emerging Forensic Threat {Updated}

Today, we’re taking a brief break from showing how CIA and other intelligence agencies around the globe create false narratives in order to achieve nefarious goals. Instead of showing how dangerous individuals and groups are manufactured, we’re going to talk about framing innocent people because intelligence agencies hate us for our freedom.

BACKGROUND – PROSECUTORIAL OVER-REACH

Besides potentially being blackmailed, the reward-punishment system from on high, there’s simple the desire to win, the arrogance that spying powers bring when the ‘boss’ {so quoted because this means politicians and Wall Street rather than the taxpayer} winks and nods approval.

Kelly McLaughlin, “‘I was arrogant, narcissistic, caught up in the culture of winning’: Prosecutor who helped put an innocent man on death row for 30 years admits he was a ‘coward’,” DailyMailUK, 11 October 2015:

dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3268482/Prosecutor-helped-wrongly-convicted-Glenn-Ford-death-row-30-years-admits-coward.html

Even to the point of fakery in forensic tests today:

Rebecca Trager, “Forensic chemist imprisoned for falsifying tests,” Royal Society of Chemistry, 27 November 2013:

rsc.org/chemistryworld/2013/11/forensic-lab-chemist-annie-dookhan-imprisoned-falsifying-tests

And those are not the only examples.

We’re all I suppose familiar with DNA and fingerprints. They’ve been the mainstay of the criminal justice system for some time now as well as 1,578 television series. While it is not only probable but quite likely that organizations like the CIA have spent lots of money figuring out how to lift and plant fake fingerprints, a brief anecdote from my exile in Minneapolis describing how DNA might be abused, then on to the “new” method being considered.

MINNEAPOLIS

Went for a walk one day in June of 2011. Had a strange blister on my leg when I returned home: A near perfect oval about 6 inches long, 4 inches wide. Peeling it off was strangely non-painful and it only seemed to be a layer or two deep. I was out front of my apartment building at the time, and just tossed the dead skin off the curb.

I went inside to grab a drink and returned a few minutes later. The skin was gone.

Imagine what could be done with it. I’m still waiting for indictment over my DNA evidence showing up where Jimmy Hoffa was last seen.

MICROBES

But it gets worse. Depicted on CSI: Cyber the other night…

GERM INTERRUPTED – A RANT

But I must interrupt this sentence in order to launch into a brief rant about the show in general. While sometimes they do actually have a case where ‘cyber’ is central, most of the time it is warmed-over episodes of the various incarnations of the ABC/NBC/Saturday/Sunday Night Mystery Movie show. The difference, grizzled gunslinger and lawman Hec Ramsey is replaced by Galen from Dragonslayer {who also voices various superheroes and supervillains in cartoons including X the Eliminator on Harvey Birdman and what the heck was Snowden’s Christmas [1999]?}, the Dawson from Dawson’s Creek, and a woman whose ‘scooping’ is somewhat less annoying than Bones‘ uptalking…or sidetalking…or bad case of syllabic-emphasisyphilitis. Plus now Ted Danson.

fargoshower
If you must have a Danson fix, Fargo is a lot better. Note the Fauxpocalypse delivered unto Oliver Platt by Billy Bob Thornton in Season 1.

For example, while the show had a very feasible episode loosely based around an Uber-type car service company not providing sufficient security for their system which, of course meant that their passengers were being assassinated left and right, they also simply replace things from Hec’s day like telephones and the postal service but leave the rest of the plot alone. Someone meets someone online? ZAP! Cyber killed you! Got a baby monitor? ZAP! Your child is now on the Kazakh black market to meet the demands for spoiled brat yuppie millennial hell-baby offspring. And so on. These newfangled means of communications mean you need someone watching you using it at all times lest your worst nightmares come true. As long as your worst nightmares stem from McMillan and Wife plots from the 70s.

hec_ramsey
“In my day, you’d jus’ drop an extra piece with the seer-yull numbers filed down.”

But we are not here for criticism of the surveillance industrial complex’s many means of disseminating propaganda. No.

OK, BACK TO MICROBES, BACTERIA, WHATNOT

The other night CSI: Cyber featured a new type of test which merely matches your natural, and theoretically unique, combination of microbes that cover your skin. On it’s face, it seems like kind of a cool idea. And they actually use it, in the show, to stop someone from being framed. Real killer planted a phone. The forensic scientists show that the apparent owner never even touched it. Beautiful, right?

What if the killer had simply wiped it with an article of his frame-up target’s dirty clothing?

Worse, what if intelligence and law enforcement agencies start doing things like framing political activists by planting evidence?

This forensic method is real and there are lobbies pushing for its approval in courts of law.

ScienceDaily, “New hand bacteria study holds promise for forensics identification,” 16 March 2010:

sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/03/100315161718.htm

The CU-Boulder study showed that “personal” bacterial communities living on the fingers and palms of individual computer users that were deposited on keyboards and mice matched the bacterial DNA signatures of users much more closely than those of random people. While the development of the technique is continuing, it could provide a way for forensics experts to independently confirm the accuracy of DNA and fingerprint analyses, says CU-Boulder Assistant Professor Noah Fierer, chief author on the study.

“Each one of us leaves a unique trail of bugs behind as we travel through our daily lives,” said Fierer, an assistant professor in CU-Boulder’s ecology and evolutionary biology department. “While this project is still in it’s preliminary stages, we think the technique could eventually become a valuable new item in the toolbox of forensic scientists.”

While in that piece they are talking about supplementing other evidence, somebody needs to tell PopSci.

Clay Dillow, ” Bacteria On Your Hands Could Become New Forensic Fingerprint,” PopSci, 16 March 2010:

popsci.com/science/article/2010-03/bacterial-profile-your-hands-could-become-new-forensic-tool

Those bacteria could potentially become a damning forensic tool at crime scenes, allowing investigators to gather DNA information unique to a perpetrator even without recovering any of that person’s actual DNA.

Seems to me that this could in some ways make framing someone even easier. While it might not mistake one person’s mix for another as sometimes happens with DNA, what are all the ways it can be transferred? And with today’s out of control intelligence community.

New Atheists and Old Un-/Intended Consequences

Even fascist assassins can find a gold nugget now and again. Of course nowadays, these people run multinationals, banks, Wall Street firms, government agencies, countries.

BACKGROUND – BRAINHACKING aka BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION

US Senate

US Senate/Committee on the Judiciary/Subcommittee on Constitutional Rights, “Individual Rights and Federal Role in Behavior Modification,” November 1974:

theblackvault.com/documentarchive/mind-control-collection/

documents.theblackvault.com/documents/mindcontrol/ED103726.pdf

As disturbing as behavior modification may be on a theoretical level, the unchecked growth of the practical technology of behavior control is cause for even greater concern. … As technology has expanded our capacity for meeting society’s needs, it has also increased, to a startling degree, our ability to enter and affect the lives of individual citizens.

In addition, the subcommittee has long been concerned with constitutional issues arising out of the treatment of the mentally ill. … In 1965 the Congress enacted The District of Columbia Hospitalization of the Mentally Ill Act…

The DoJ investigated St. E’s due a rise in violence at the facility. Was this rise one element in a post-9/11 return of MKULTRA?

As I’ve written several times, whereas surveillance can be about learning about you, brainhacking can be about altering who you are. Voyeurism v rape is in some ways not a bad analogy apart from most of us not knowing how traumatic actual rape can be {and I do not seek to diminish that in any way}.

But what is it that they were actually doing? When there are so many financial benefits to manufacturting terrorists instead of moles to point out drone targets, what is really happening comes into question.

It also seems likely that the program did not end, merely got moved elsewhere. They never give them up completely.

See the new top-tab-page here if you require more in order to understand how it is a wide range of methods from breaking down the personality and will, to inflicting psychological pain, to indoctrination. And note that none of the three top subjects were particularly religious, merely radical and/or mentally disturbed.

And the US government’s brainwashing document on the Soviet and Chinese Cold War methods. They know precisely what they are doing.

And Shaker Aamer’s document about his treatment.

And how in general there’s a corrupt psychiatric industrial complex:

Bruce E. Levine, “America’s Mental Health Industry Is a Threat to Our Sanity,” TruthOut, 8 January 2012:

http://www.truth-out.org/news/item/5976:americas-mental-health-industry-is-a-threat-to-our-sanity

SAM HARRIS

I am starting to think that we are looking at an Ann Coulter type situation. Coulter’s popularity dropped considerably once TIME published the piece on her in 2005, the Right {and some on the Left who didn’t get it} quickly tried to distract us with a kerfuffle about the cover photo. What the article says, clearly, is that Coulter likes to watch and laugh at the reactions to her outrageous comments with friends over a glass of wine. This explains that her primary goal is to throw out red meat which the Left spends time, energy, money, ink, and pixels refuting. This serves to ‘degrade’ Leftist activists’ effectiveness. Note the ‘degrade’ is one of the “4 D’s” mentioned in the GCHQ/JTRIG slides {the others being deny, disrupt, and deceive} though this concept is neither new nor originated with them.

That said, and I’ve spent a lot of conscious and unconscious thought on this myself, here’s a pair of refutations of Harris’ statements, retractions, denials, etc.

Adam Johnson, “Bill Maher and Richard Dawkins just don’t get it: The real reason(s) progressives can’t stand them, The pair still can’t understand why their self-victimization shtick plays so poorly on the left. We have some ideas,” Salon/Alternet, 6 October 2015:

salon.com/2015/10/06/why_so_many_liberals_just_
cant_stand_richard_dawkins_and_bill_maher_partner/

Omar Baddar, “Sam Harris’ dangerous new idiocy: Incoherent, Islamophobic and simply immoral; Harris’ latest airport profiling proposal isn’t just anti-Muslim, it makes no sense and would not keep anyone safe,” Salon, 10 October 2015:

salon.com/2015/10/10/sam_harris_dangerous_new_idiocy_
incoherent_islamophobic_and_simply_immoral/

Now on to why I think all of this is related and the irony of agreeing with Harris on so many givens while simultaneously coming to different conclusions on the solutions and problems themselves.

His shared paper on neural correlates and religious and non-religious belief.

journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0007272

According to Boyer, religious beliefs and concepts must arise from mental categories and cognitive propensities that predate religion—and these underlying structures might determine the stereotypical form that religious beliefs and practices take.

Yes. See optimism bias. You can’t run around taking care of business worrying today about the collapse of magnetic forces that hold matter together or yesterday that it will never rain again. So you may as well ascribe your safety to the unseen, maybe do a dance. Better to buy off on a delusion and stop thinking about it. That’s evolution and this is to a large extent a beneficial adaptation. As long as you don’t sit around waiting for Superman when your action is required.

We may, in fact, be what Bloom [46] has called “common sense dualists”—that is, we may be constitutionally inclined to see mind as distinct from body and, therefore, will tend to intuit the existence of disembodied minds at work in the world.

Hallelujah, they are not nearly as distinct as we believe. It’s worth noting that Harris and I also share the view that free will is not what we think it is. But it’s not religion per se that leads to violence, as noted with Kaczynski, ‘Whitey’, and Lang. So why is eliminating or switching off that “center” if it exists the focus?

And who else is interested in finding out where ‘religion’ resides in the brain-body and how to switch it on and off? DARPA.

Activist Post, “Secret DARPA Mind Control Project Revealed: Leaked Document,” 29 July 2013:

activistpost.com/2013/07/secret-darpa-mind-control-project.html

Activist Post was recently contacted by an anonymous whistleblower who worked on a secret ongoing mind-control project for DARPA. The aim of the program is to remotely disrupt political dissent and extremism by employing “Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation” (TMS) in tandem with sophisticated propaganda based on this technology. TMS stimulates the temporal lobe of the brain with electromagnetic fields.

The program, conducted by The Center for Strategic Communication, is based at Arizona State University. The DARPA funding for this project can be confirmed on the ASU website here. The head of the project, Steve Corman, has worked extensively in the area of strategic communication as it applies to terrorism and “extremism” – or what could be called “the war of ideas.”

As with surveillance and every other power we handed over to government, to think such a thing, if possible, would only be used to alter the thoughts of terrorists is at best incredibly naïve. Every single Cold War excess has and is being used for purposes of personal financial gain and power expansion.

And this is hardly a first. There have been hypnosis studies on religious conversion for half a century or more.

As silly as this program might sound on its face, here’s a fun kind-of-related story:

David Derbyshire, “Scientists discover moral compass in the brain which can be controlled by magnets,” DailyMailUK, 30 March 2010:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-1262074/Scientists-discover-moral-compass-brain-controlled-magnets.html

Dr. Liane Young, who led the study, said: ‘You think of morality as being a really high-level behaviour. To be able to apply a magnetic field to a specific brain region and change people’s moral judgements is really astonishing.’

The moral compass lies in a part of the brain called the right temporo-parietal junction. It lies near the surface of the brain, just behind the right ear.

The researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology used a non-invasive technique called transcranial magnetic stimulation to disrupt the area of the brain.

The technique generates a magnetic field on a small part of the skull which creates weak electric currents in the brain. These currents interfere with nearby brain cells and prevent them from firing normally.

FOIA’d DARPA-ASU project progress report docs can be found here:

Is or was Sam Harris also in DoD’s employ? Or did they zap him, Dawkins and Maher in the head too?

To The Matts

MATTHEW KEYS

First, Matthew Keys. Most of the interesting stuff you need to know about his case can be found here:

Sarah Jeong, “Why the Government Went After Matthew Keys,” VICE/Motherboard, 9 October 2015:

http://motherboard.vice.com/read/why-the-government-went-after-matthew-keys

Kim Zetter, “Matthew Keys’ Hacking Conviction May Not Survive An Appeal,” WIRED, 9 October 2015″

http://www.wired.com/2015/10/matthew-keys-journalist-conviction-cfaa-abuses/

The only additions are how the quit/fired/laid off routine from his previous job sounds familiar. In January of 2010, I was inexplicably and unexpectedly locked out of my place of work. My security pass had been revoked.

An exchange of emails revealed that one of my bosses was under the impression that I had quit. We had had a heated exchange about 10 days prior and partly due to his health condition, which could have lead to his hospitalization or even death, and partly due to my fear that I would say something I would regret, I left the building and took a week’s vacation. I sent an email stating so.

Like so many of my other dying relationships, I had assumed it was a temporary situation. I had known many of these people for a decade, some nearly two. This didn’t fit the familiar pattern. Though I had finally come to believe that the US intelligence community was interfering in my life, I had yet to figure out that they knew exactly what they were doing and what their endgame was. I was sure it had to be some mistake and that, once that was sorted out, things would return to normal.

That didn’t happen. When I moved to Minneapolis and the money I had ran out, I applied for unemployment and received two letters on the same day, one stating that I had quit, the other that I had been let go for cause. I wound up having to return to NYC for a hearing with a labor judge. There, I presented email evidence that I had not quit and was given a the judgment that I had been laid off in February.

All of this occurred along side sometimes ridiculous, sometimes horrifying psychological harassment beyond what I could have then imagined. Clearly illegal, and yet very much occurring under a Democrat in the White House whose speeches would generally imply well beyond anything he would resort to.

Despite having gotten the big brush off from both the partners at my firm in email, one day in 2012 or so, they needed my notes on some project or other. Since then, I did a couple of projects for one partner and helped the other work up a proposal for another job. If only some of my other bridges hadn’t been so thoroughly burnt, you might not be reading this right now.

So, I have to say that some of what I read there seems similar. As does what eventually happened with Mr. Keys and some unwatched page at the Los Angeles Times website. The words ‘deny’ and ‘disrupt’ come to mind where the intelligence community is concerned. Mr. Keys’ important work has been disrupted and we may be denied his help in the fight against corruption while he, like Barrett Brown, is serving a sentence. And, also like Barrett Brown, it appears similar to the ‘digital arson’ that FBI/Sabu/Hammond engaged with Stratfor over, which I suspected was to prevent Stratfor’s financial collapse {based on FBI advising Stratfor that they do nothing while knowing that their Sabu hack would wipe their servers and the emails at Wikileaks regarding their concerns over subscriptions and new clients}. Government loves its corporate welfare.

I don’t think it can be any other way. There is a Cold War going on in the US. It is not so much between good and evil, or right and wrong but two equally corrupt groups of elites who use the rest of us like chess pieces. The interests of multinationals are paramount and life has become cheap. That’s the real Barack Obama’s opinion once you look at what he does instead of what he says. At least Republicans admit much of the time that they don’t really care about people.

MATT DEHART

Matt DeHart I’ve blogged about before. There are the occasional high-profile articles written about him and I’ll link them up below.

However, that won’t much help him because–and there was a similar pattern with the Barrett Brown sentencing hearing–what he is charged with has nothing to do with having seen documentation about FBI investigating CIA’s attempt to frame Al Qaeda and/or Iraq for the anthrax letters that happened just after 9/11. Phonies like Brad Moss, esq.–who definitely know what the government is capable of–will say that and shrug as if breaking the rules by the government is something that cannot and should not be pointed out. To people like him, you have to be an expert lawyer AND a counter-intelligence expert at all times even though you are outspent, outlawyered, and outspooked by an immense machine more interested in squeezing more of the middle class’ wealth into already burgeoning pockets. He is the champion of the status quo, the legal equivalent of access stenography journalism, and he damn well knows it. It’s not just a question of what any of the three deeply corrupt branches of government can make legal within their circles of power no matter how foul, but the maintenance of the system that destroys people and families for no other reason than it can that he and his ilk support. Sometimes I think he knows this, other times I think he lies to himself and considers ‘success’ to mean simply keeping a person out of prison, to hell with the public interest with what the whistleblower has to say. Nixon’s ghost wishes he had these people around in his day.

Matt’s trial is scheduled for now on 8 December 2015 in Nashville. While I don’t consider these things from any superstitious standpoint, there is the practice that terrorist organizations like to engage in of commemorating anniversaries, and CIA, FBI, DHS, etc. are no exceptions. Let’s see what else occurred on 8 December, shall we?

NATIONAL INFAMY DAY

Most from here:

1927: The Brookings Institution, one of the US’ oldest think tanks, founded via the merger of three think tanks.

1941: Roosevelt asks Congress to declare war on Japan, Germany. Can you imagine this today? Congress is told we’re at war after the bombing starts. But they don’t mind; gets the kickbacks to them that much faster.

2009: The Open Government Directive is released.

2009: The Squidgate event occurs on the bridge between Sarnia, Ontario and Port Huron, Michigan on the US side and marks a new era of COINTELPRO 2.0 and MKULTRA 2.0 in a blender that captures my full attention very quickly. I call it NKINTRA.

2010: +1 – A juror who wrote the judge for leniency in the Squidgate trial is accused of robbing a check-cashing store that occured on this date {9 December}. The actual perpetrator had glued coyote fur to his face in order to obscure it from cameras.

2015: Pending: The Matt DeHart trial as scheduled to begin.

But perhaps the most disturbing thing about the Matt DeHart saga isn’t the investigation into CIA framing another country for the anthrax letters, not even the drugging and torture by FBI, being framed for child porn charges. Perhaps it is this: One of the board members deciding his asylum request to Canada found that her own son went postal and shot some people.

Matt never had a chance.
