One Mystery Partly Solved

Primarily, I’m talking about this:

Josh Lederman, “Doctors find brain abnormalities in victims of Cuba mystery,” AP, 6 December 2017:

apnews.com/bbed1d7f6f1a4320a7e60abfdce67d4d

Please allow me to take a brief detour. According to his family members, Aaron Alexis, the Navy Yard Shooter, had violence and anger issues. Now imagine that such a person was then subjected to whatever it is that affected Americans and Canadians in Havana. It would, almost predictably, lead to the end result.

As has been noted by neuroscientists for some time now, a full separation of the left and right hemispheres in the brain results in the brain doing various workarounds in order to reconnect them. Sometimes or often, this results in the verbal center of the brain sending messages in sentences that are detectable consciously. In other words, thoughts that resemble voices except that they are purely in the head, not the same as auditory hallucinations which actually seem like external sounds.

This, I believe explains some of what many targeted individuals {TIs} sense as being the use of voice-to-skull–which is a real technology that has worked more or less since the mid-1970s based on the Frey effect. Much like believing one is chipped in those cases where one is not actually implanted with anything {referring to the VICE documentary I reviewed here}, not every time a TI thinks V2K is being employed is there actually someone on the other end doing so. As the Federation of American Scientists notes from their mirror copy of US Army’s MIA definition of voice-to-skull notes, it can also be used subliminally.

It would probably be next to impossible to tell the difference between white matter damage in some cases and actual use of the Frey effect. The result: A target who can be “spun up” and will continue experiencing pain, alarm and discomfort even when they are not actually being harassed.

This, according to historian Alfred McCoy in this interview with The Intercept‘s Jeremy Scahill, is CIA’s M.O. “Self-inflicted” pain such as seen in the Abu Ghraib photos of stress positions is CIA’s favorite kind of method. It puts the target/victim in the position of harming themselves and CIA can focus on other things and then check in periodically to maintain the pressure.

Back to Cuba, the greater mystery is, what specifically was used to cause changes in the white matter of these people? And then, of course, whodunnit?

MOTIVE

With regards to the latter, and I really, really hate defending Obama because he was and is a multinational corporation puppet and a war criminal, one cannot help but note Donald Trump’s statements about erasing Obama’s legacy. Nor can one ignore the military industrial complex’s Russia obsession.

Re-opening diplomatic relations with Cuba was something Obama accomplished. {Note that closing the detainment and reprogramming camps at Guantanamo Bay were not; some MSM outlets have been bizarrely stating he did or using words to make it seem as if he succeeded in doing so}. It would be something Trump, CIA, and the Joint Chiefs of Staff–as well as a slew of Wall Street special business interests–would want undone.

Additionally, I’d note that the definition of BRIC is Brazil, Russia, Iran, China. Four countries, plus North Korea, not on the same banking system as most of the rest of the planet. Brazil kind of sticks out because it doesn’t receive the same rhetoric as the others from GOP MoCs as the others. But…

…as a partial history of CIA’s very active station in Rio.

{Sucks, I said. With ‘Holly Gooodhead’ of CIA}.

METHOD

With regards to method, I don’t know. FOX implied it might have been a virus, based on Lederman’s article, which doesn’t mention virii specifically but does mention blood work and CDC monitoring.

The article does mention concussion, however. The “perfect concussion” was a joint CIA/US Navy project that got mentioned in Congressional hearings in 1977 on MKULTRA {links to the PDF and a text version at right under History}, both in the testimony of the recently late Adm. Stansfield Turner and Frank Laubinger of CIA’s/Sidney Gottlieb’s TSD. Both men initially stated that the perfect concussion project had never been funded. Later, Laubinger recalled that MKULTRA subproject 54 was intended to be a continuation of a previous research project that had been funded:

Mr. Laubinger corrected his testimony regarding Subproject 54 during the September 21, 1977 hearings before the Subcommittee on Health and Scientific Research of the Human Resources Committee. The relevant portion is reproduced below:

Mr. LAUBINGER. On project 54, it has got a rather sensational proposal in there, in terms of the work that they propose to do, and you asked about the proposal and I said, in fact, it was never funded under MKULTRA. Now, I overlooked — at least, my memory did not serve me correctly when I went through that file folder to see one memorandum dated January 10, 1956, which makes it quite clear, as a matter of fact, that that proposal was based on prior work that was funded by the Agency.

Senator SCHWEIKER. By what?

Mr. LAUBINGER. By the CIA. So, that information was in their file folder. It did not happen to be in my head when I testified.

Senator SCHWEIKER. I think I might have read you that, and that is why I argued at the time with you, because I think I had in front of me, as I recall, some indication that it was funded there. I did read that to you. So, you did supply it to us; there is no argument about that information.

Mr. LAUBINGER. Perhaps I am sort of headstrong, myself, and in my own view, I am reading under the ULTRA project, that if it had been funded under ULTRA, it would have had a project number and identified as such. The thing that threw me was that it was funded, apparently, outside of any MKULTRA activity and it was under the normal contracting process, so that it was not included in MKULTRA as any work done under that funding umbrella.

The file folder that you have and I have, right here, makes it quite clear, however, that a year’s work was done through navy funding — a navy funding mechanism — on which the proposal was based that ultimately came into the MKULTRA program. That second proposal was never funded. So, there was conflict and I, personally, I think, introduced a little bit of confusion in that in my testimony.

Senator SCHWEIKER. Well, do you agree or not agree with DOD’s statement here that even though the initial funding was navy, it was really I conduit for the CIA?

Mr. LAUBINGER. I think that is correct.

Senator SCHWEIKER. Yes; I would appreciate that. I would like to know how it went from ONR to CIA after a year. Somebody made a decision to make that transfer, and to make this an MKULTRA subject. There had to be some sort of review that led to a decision to continue that kind of concussion — total blackout, maximum amnesia, and whatever else it was you were interested in — study and testing.

Mr. LAUBINGER. Senator, if I may try to say a few words on that, the files that were available to us for inspection, which are limited, indicated that there was a project being carried on by the Navy having to do with the, effects of brain concussion. The CIA developed an interest in that, and considered funding it, but actually never did, and as the admiral testified, the MKULTRA is merely a funding mechanism, a place they go for money to do such things, but there is no evidence that I know of that that project was ever funded.

Senator SCHWEIKER. Well, I am confused, because here again is another quote from a document that we have seen, which you have released and supplied to us:

Following is the technical progress made under the current [deleted] contract:

(a) Specializing instrumentation and numerous testing techniques have been developed to obtain the desired dynamic data;

(b) considerable data has now been obtained supporting the resonance-cavilation theory of brain concussion; and

(c) preliminary acceleration threshold data has been obtained for a fluid-filled glass simulated skull.

It goes on to talk about a blast range and a 2,500-square-foot laboratory. The document notes that “Three blast test series have been run to date.” It describes a special blackjack device, “a pancake-type blackjack giving a high peak impact force with a low unit surface pressure.”

I agree the records are inconclusive as to the results of this work, but it certainly seems that some testing was done.

Mr. LAUBINGER. Senator, you are putting us in the same position I think you were stating that you were in earlier referring to documents not before us, but I believe you are quoting from a proposal that someone sent to the Agency to fund this work, and he is referring to past work. The past work would have encompassed a lot of things like that, but CIA was not involved with that.

Senator SCHWEIKER. What do you mean, Admiral, on page 6 of your testimony when you mention projects using magician’s art? How do magicians get into the spook business?

Admiral TURNER. I have interpreted this as to how to slip the mickey into the finn, but I would like to ask my advisers here to comment.

Mr. BRODY. I think that is essentially it, Senator. It is surreptitious administration of material to someone, deceptive practices, how to distract someone’s attention while you are doing something else, as I understand it. It was also some type of a covert communication project involved with the study of how magicians and their assistants perhaps communicate information to one another without having other people know it. This is the type of thing that was involved, sir.

Senator SCHWEIKER. Thank you, Mr. Chairman.

This is really old hat, 1950s. And there’s no indication that a concussion can cause more than blackout and short term memory loss. However, what is also notable is that many or all of the Havana victims have recovered and returned to work. Would a virus do that? Wouldn’t a virus be contagious if it reproduced significantly in the brain?

Still a missing puzzle piece, but we’re getting closer.

James Bond Sucks {Updated}

…and so does Eliot Ness. UPDATE: And Jack Ryan.

THIS IS A POSTED DRAFT BECAUSE I DISLIKE BEING INTERRUPTED. 😀

No, this isn’t directly about #MeToo. Though certainly someone should do a piece about the most notorious fictional character of the 20th Century, and, for example, his ‘conversion therapy’ of Pussy Galore. Come to think of it after having put that in writing, maybe a piece on how Ian Fleming named some of his characters.

Rather, I am talking about CIA’s position as historically having the highest suicide rate among agencies in the entire US government. Though certainly there may be the sort of Wormwood/Frank Olson type thing {i.e. murder} from time to time, there’s something else at play as the major factor.

Let me add that I dislike discussing this kind of thing. Even though I do see the need, and actually believe to a large extent I do, understand the psychology of our common enemy within, it puts me too close to their thinking to write about it. It’s uncomfortable.

And maybe it’s also because this hits home.

It’s the fact that people go in expecting to do what the PR suggests: Fighting Teh Bad Guyz.

What one finds instead is any number of so counter-intuitive situations and tasks that one practically do have to be a brain zombie to not suspect it’s not so much counter-intuitive as just plain corrupt and ultimately bad for the country. For example, I found this from my early morning soft-trolling {typically the only kind I do with the exception of NYT, WaPo, etc. when they are carrying water for the military industrial complex} of a former CIA officer on Twitter: *

David Grossman, “CIA Uses Board Games for Training: And they actually sound fun,” Popular Mechanics,

popularmechanics.com/military/amp25717/cia-board-games/

{Note: The Arstechnica article by Sam Machkovech used as source may be more fun.}

The part that catches the eye:

Games also develop for specific situations. Kingpin: The Hunt for El Chapo, works to “train analysts who might work with law enforcement and other partners around world to find a well-armed, well-defended, well-protected bad guy,” CIA Intelligence Educator Volko Ruhnke said at the panel. “It’s a game about finding a fugitive from justice who, if not found sooner than later, will likely do harm to innocent people and harm US interests.”

As I have noted, learning from what Gary Webb reported on, which Director John M. Deutch had to apologize for to the black community in Los Angeles, plus all the Gary and Mike stuff I blogged about before, is that without a doubt, Guzman was CIA’s man. Probably isn’t now, but also see:

And:

So, imagine joining up to take out the bad guys only to discover, nope!, the bad guys are who we use and protect in order to sustain democracy in the United States of America not! keep multinational corporations, especially banks, in the lifestyle to which they have become accustomed…which is to say waging wars for them on a whim and ever expanding the enemies list to feed an insatiable maw that is attached to an anus that only really craps out more money to those who don’t actually need any more.

* To his credit, he responded in a friendly manner. Which is not what one may expect from someone with a Twitter account banner featuring a selfie with Gen. Michael Hayden. Then again, Hayden may be the intelligence community’s version of Bob Hope. Here’s what Marlon Brando once said about Bob Hope:

Bob Hope will go to the opening of a phone booth in a gas station in Anaheim, providing they have a camera there and three people.

Then again, here’s what Bob Hope said about CIA in Spies Like Us:

Doctor. Doctor. I’m glad I’m not sick.

I Am a Terrible Feminist

Furthermore, I believe that in order to have civil and human rights for women there have to be civil and human rights, period, including the right to fundamental justice, just as for women to have the vote, there has to be a vote.

–Margaret Atwood

https://www.theglobeandmail.com/amp/opinion/am-i-a-bad-feminist/article37591823/

Really, I am. I haven’t read a single book on the subject. As with so many other subjects, like legalizing various drugs, I’ve absorbed what little I know from reading articles and tweets from people more familiar with the subject.

It’s not that I don’t have a thousand excuses; I do. William Binney’s advice to an acquaintance about sticking to one issue. Though it’s not as though I don’t break that one as well.

So, why didn’t I support Hillary Clinton? At the risk of invoking the latest season of American Horror Story, I voted for Jill Stein.

Bernie was actually one of the first people I contacted when the harassment began back in late ’09/early ’10. In fact I was plotting the letter that I wound up sending him and the now-late Senator Inouye just before that strange encounter with ‘Janus’ in the deli.

Ultimately, though I like what I heard from Bernie, I don’t believe he can, or would, do what his words would seem to imply if he had been elected. His ad, which I shared on Twitter several times, listed FBI and CIA {and I think NSA} as ‘social programs.’ While I fully understand who he was trying to appeal to and why, they are in reality precisely the opposite: Embedded guardians against anything that harms the vulture capitalist status quo, even to the point of destroying the country and its citizens.

But why not Hillary? I had certainly come to support Bill Clinton when powerful right wing players attempted to remove him from office via the Lewinsky scandal. After all, when there’s a mounted offensive against a powerful person, it is always political. Even Nixon, who was a power-abusing paranoiac, was really being ushered out because some powerful USN Admiral thought he was too soft on the Commies, and most definitely not because politicians give a single s*** about ethics.

See how I keep changing the subject? Terrible feminist.

Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State under Obama. For those who are products of the GOP-gutted American public school system, I note that the Central Intelligence Agency is in the State Department. As Secretary of State, she was head of the Department and, indirectly, CIA.

So my next excuse is she was there when the Obama administration did so many of the awful things it did. Signed the Monsanto deferred prosecution agreement, for example. I mean, WTF, a multinational corporation is just trying to own anything and everything grown in the ground, what could possibly go wrong for humanity in the long run?

But if we are going to elect a criminal, why not Hillary? Why wasn’t it a female’s turn to run the ship? Did I hold HRC to a higher standard?

Maybe. I don’t know. I voted for Stein in ’12 as well because by then it was clear that Obama’s cronies were not at all interested in being pals with me, much less the disaster that is the rest of that Republican-lite pretend party.

Or maybe, like so many other gay men, to say nothing of those in their fifth decade, I’m just so embedded in my Peter Pan Syndrome that I don’t even see, recognize, acknowledge my own misogyny. Maybe it’s not really daddy issues with people like me but rather mommy issues.

I don’t know. If so, it’s a burden I’ve carried so long I no longer think about it. And, really, my “issue” with Langley kind of overshadows everything else in my life, so in terms of therapy, guess that will have to wait.

There are four Twitter ladies in particular I am thankful for. Really, it’s difficult to describe, but like some others I know in person…in Toronto…in Michigan…there were days when you were all I had. You probably didn’t know it, but when you are as desperate as I was, you’ll hold on to whatever positives you can. I am grateful. And I won’t ever forget it.

In any case, what I do know is we are all pit against a machine that will chew us all up and spit us all out, especially if we are divided. I’m willing to take the steps I need to–though I sometimes find being as politically correct as my allies might prefer makes a difficult task nearly impossible; maybe that’s just laziness–even though I have no f***ing idea what those steps are or should be.

The fact that I wrote this doesn’t necessary mean I’m the only one thinking it. My life is just weird that way, I guess.

BBD – Not Quite He Said, He Said {Updated}

Langley is a bigger shithole than Norway edition.

(Cuz Nobody’s talkin’ ’bout you.)

Met him a year ago or so. Thought he was full of crap then. Maybe a hustler. Clearly someone in need of a corrective vision apparatus if one were to take his verbal romantic interest seriously.

Then he disappeared for a chunk of last year. Did mention moving to Texas. {People do that?}.

Turns out he instead moved to New Mexico. However, on the way back from a day trip from Mexico a border guard stopped them and verbally harassed repeatedly the lady he was with. There were drug-sniffing dogs. They found nothing because there was nothing to be found.

But, one assumes because as we know the Border Patrol and local police down there are completely bought by the cartels, the CIA, and various untouchable members of the Legislative Branch, just had to keep playing the bully, maybe to convince himself when he lets the drug smugglers across that he’s still somehow a “good guy.”

My new boyfriend, let’s call him Kevin {you already see where this is going, don’t you?} told the guard to leave his friend alone. The guard pushed his head. In what was of course a normal reaction, Kevin pushed his hand away.

He, because he insisted on a trial and held out for a while, plead down from assault on a federal officer to a misdemeanor and spent some five months and change in a Texas prison. That’s why I didn’t see him until earlier this week.

Did I mention he’s from Chicago? I know, too much right after saying to some friends I didn’t have the “take home” type in my life. But then he’s, in his own words, half African, quarter Irish, quarter Eastern Indian. And pretty from head to toe in my words.

Did I mention his mother’s name was Hope? She died in 2012 or 2013. Know when you are being played, ladies and non-ladies. Really I suppose I’m insulted that they’d think I’d be stupid enough to think what they wanted me to think.

Did I mention he had a rose tattoo? That may not mean as much to most of you. Does to me. He bought a faux black rose to go with the faux red one I had in my car for months now. Now as to why that is…

It took a day after our first date to figure out what CIA’s real endgame is. Really only a couple of hours of quiet did the trick. I can’t quite show my homework on this one. Part of the idea is to of course forget the problem and let the unconscious figure it out. There was a lot of “loud” stuff that would take more attention, but then they laid groundwork for the other thing, quietly, like a small, thin thread among a bundle of ropes.

I figured it out about 37 seconds before this tweet. Yes, always have your Twitter gun loaded in case of emergency.

I am again wondering why CIA consistently insists on doing the sort of opposite of what it should if it really wanted me to clam up. But then I remember it’s run by psychotic Nazi clowns and it all becomes clearer.

Don’t think I’ll be elaborating just yet as to what that end game is. I just couldn’t resist letting them know I already know. 😀

Unabomber Denial

Ran across this by a former FBI agent a few days ago. Involved a letter from Ted Kaczynski to a woman inquiring about Ted’s involvement with Dr. Henry Murray, who worked for the Office of Strategic Services, OSS, the precursor to CIA, before deciding to drug people and have them do personality tests at university in California.

While it is of course impossible to know for certain, there are some problems with Ted’s analysis. Overall, I think it clear that Murray had a formal or informal relationship with CIA during the period in question.

First, the entire point of a potential mind control/lone wolf covert ops program would be to make certain that the lone wolf has no idea that he is being influenced and/or controlled. This is, in general, so that CIA can deny involvement and so if a puppet, “zombie,” etc. were to fall into enemy hands no secrets could be divulged because the “human drone” doesn’t actually know any. {Yes, there’s probably some legalese overlap with the drone program over there.}

Ted stated that CIA was not involved in Murray’s research. He had and still has absolutely no way of knowing that for certain. Sometimes, as noted in the 1977 Senate report on MKULTRA, the researchers themselves and the institutions who received money from the CIA did not know that CIA was involved. On this, we can safely assume he doesn’t really know that answer.

Second he states that there was only one bad session with Murray and that he was not tortured into becoming the Unabomber. This I am inclined to believe. It really isn’t necessary to have someone in custody in order to alter their behavior. This was no doubt a big hurdle for CIA to be able to make events occur and maximize deniability.

They solved it. It is possible to cause sleep deprivation, for example, while the subject is in his own home. {Or, as US and Canadian diplomats noted in Havana last year, while in a hotel. Kind of makes it difficult to deny that possibility when it made international news. Though they eventually tried to call it mass hysteria/delusion even though at least one FBI agent reported similar symptoms}.

It is also possible, given Kaczynski started his spree in 1978, that the Frey effect, also known as the radio wave or microwave hearing or auditory effect, also known as voice-to-skull or V2S or V2K, had become operational by then. It was demonstrated publicly using a computer voice in 1973 and 1974 at a US university and would have been something CIA would have been very, very interested in.

Now, thanks to the Federation of American Scientists keeping a mirror copy of the one that the US Army deleted {and then issued two memos on the same day regarding the OIG having to report in the chain of command rather than be independent with regards to investigating civil rights abuses and to define “damage” from non-lethal weapons as having to be permanent}, we also know that voice-to-skull can be used subliminally. Whether or not that was so in 1978 is not known to me.

But then the point of also, and this is what CIA really learned from MKULTRA, drugging the subject makes them both appear–if not actually fit the definition–mentally ill and more likely to accept that whatever the voices in their head say are true and coming from some part of their own subconscious {or “God,” the devil, space aliens, whatever in your more extreme mentally disturbed subjects}.

So it is possible that Kaczynski was prompted to do what he did and had help writing his manifesto. You’ll note if that were true that the helpers were paid by CIA to help write it while Kaczynski was not. This is one of a half dozen things I mean when I say that ultimately mind control is about slavery. I hope that most of us, despite these trying highly politicized times, can agree that slavery is unacceptable, fascists/multinational corporate “Nazis” be damned.

At least the rewrite involving the documentary is now explained.

But what I’m seeing here, and let’s note that Kaczynski is and has been in custody for years now and who knows what else they’ve been slopping into his head since then, is the old bait and switcheroo. Make the argument about physical torture, prove that that probably didn’t happen, and then pretend that that therefore means there was no CIA control or influence where the Unabomber’s actions are concerned. This is an all-too-common thing we see pop up {like demolition of the buildings being the the touchstone of a 9/11 conspiracy when there are already clear connections between CIA and Al Qaeda / Afghanistan} when there’s likely to be something nefarious behind the scenes.

Finally, a quick change of subjects again, but I have to repeat it occasionally. The sort of diabolical nature of the big picture is CIA is beyond repair. It must be shut down and replaced and have some of its responsibilities moved elsewhere. At the same time, our corrupt government will simply use the occasion to further privatize it. In a lot of ways it already is with subcontractors and In-Q-Tel.

And that is where it is all going: Multinational corporate control with most of humanity in some form of slavery service to it. It might not look like ancient Egypt, but it will sure feel like it when they aren’t drugging us.
