How the World Works

Item 1:

Here’s Yasha Levine’s latest. Not only is a large portion of California’s water privatized, but the billionaire couple who owns a major portion of it is one of the lobbies pushing for war with Iran because they grow pistachios.

Item 2:

Here’s Michael Hayden making a big deal of Huawei spying for China when all of Silicon Valley spies for Monstanto, Exxon, Pfizer, and large multinational banks on and against the public interests of US citizens:

Charles Riley, “Ex-CIA director says Huawei spied for China,” CNN, 19 July 2013:

Hayden currently serves on the board at Motorola Solutions, and is a principal at security consultancy Chertoff Group.

Phil Muncaster, “Former CIA and NSA head says Huawei spies for China,” The Register, 19 July 2013:

Aussie politicians responded by banning Huawei from bidding on the National Broadband Network (NBN) project.

The UK, on the other hand, has welcomed the firm with open arms, prime minister David Cameron even hosting founder Ren Zhengfei at Downing Street after he announced a £1.2bn investment in the country.

However, a parliamentary security and intelligence committee has since raised national security concerns with Huawei.

Could Motorola want Huawei’s UK, Australian, etc. contracts? Isn’t it a little odd how national security threats frequently align with personal business interests?

There’s more.

Here’s the Trump administration getting Canada to arrest the CFO of Huawei for “intellectual property theft”:

Dan Mangan, “National security advisor John Bolton says ‘I knew in advance’ about arrest of Huawei executive,” CNBC, 6 December 2018:

And that is the Trump administration giving future payola solutions to Motorola Solutions {NSA} to spy on Mueller’s team and escape whatever it is Team Status Quo had in mind for endgame in Russiagate, and otherwise prompting certain regions of the powers-that-be to pardon Team Trump Deep State/secret squirrel style.

Missing Data, Logical Fallacies, And Psych Coverups

The document I link below is a great example of either well-meaning, and yet not entirely correct, analysis; or a downright misleading response. In and of itself, it might seem innocuous. If you look a bit closer, you might see a problem with regards to the diagnosis of what is and what is not “delusional.” After all, what better way to hide criminality than to say the person reporting it is delusional? *

The authors mention MKULTRA being invoked, but fail to mention the MKULTRA included several subprojects studying various mental disorders and that there hasn’t really been any suggestion as to why apart from the obvious reasons I detail below, ie, to mimic mental illness in order to harass, discredit, and ultimately character “assassinate” a target.

Similarly, they invoke similarities between 17th century “mind control” but fail to note the the Central Intelligence Agency is just as capable of reading history as the researchers are. This is again one of those situations where the perceived order of events is jumbled to create one picture when another is possible {see, from the Snowden docs, Gambits for Deception, “Time-shift Perceived Behaviour”}. That is, they point to similarities between pre-CIA mental disorders suggesting the phenomenon is connected to the former but fail to acknowledge CIA is aware of this and capable of using it to hide their involvement.

They also fail to mention one of the main stated goals was to mimic other ailments including the symptoms of them. So why not mimic demonic possession while you’re at it? And one should note that LSD sprang from the supposed origin behind werewolf legends: Ergot.

It’s all right there in the CIA memo included in the Senate report on MKULTRA, see items 1 and 5:

1. Substances which will promote illogical thinking and impulsiveness to the point where the recipient would be discredited in public.

2. Substances which increase the efficiency of mentation and perception.

3. Materials which will prevent or counteract the intoxicating effect of alcohol.

4. Materials which will promote the intoxicating effect of alcohol.

5. Materials which will produce the signs and symptoms of recognized diseases in a reversible way so that they may be used for malingering, etc.

You don’t even have to delve into the American Psychology Association’s strong connections to both MKULTRA and the post-9/11 torture scandal. But I’ll mention it anyway.

But the interesting part of the paper is how they are suggesting that simply because a culture or subculture believes a certain thing does not mean–as it has been historically!–that the belief should not be considered “delusional.” In other words, authority, perhaps corporate mainstream news, should decide what is and what is not delusional without regards to who otherwise does and does not believe it.

It is of course in the current climate difficult to defend many, but not all, non-mainstream beliefs. The phrase “fake news” invokes all sorts of interesting responses for example.

Then there’s been concerted attempts at, for example, painting Bernie Sanders and Jill Stein supporters as either Russian PSYOP dupes or sympathizers, mentally ill, or some combination of the above.

Now read the footnote. ;}

* Turns out that practice may actually have a long–read: over a century–history of being practiced in rich families where some unscrupulous family members didn’t like what was written in the will. We can all imagine their lawyers challenging the sanity of the dying patron or matron, but the “ghostlighting” portion employed to use it may have lead to the strict-ish adherence of judges sticking to the “sound mind at the time the will was signed” decision.

Seems there was a lot of people seemingly “going crazy” after signing wills that became disputed even late 19th century. Haven’t explored/researched this enough to speak to specifics yet, but thought it interesting to note what should be unsurprising: There’s a point where greed and subterfuge meet in the real world and all the fluff, pop culture and big corporate news crap cannot hide that fact.

Maybe this time “the will” is the Constitution.

BBD – The Quick Note

Would you–if you were the target of a corrupt, powerful agency that funds itself by importing, manufacturing, and selling illegal drugs into its own country, that openly had assassinated American citizens, had tortured–reveal when they succeed in getting to you? Would you be that stupid? Or ballsy?

Well, I’m just sick enough of Groundhog Day to do just that.

Let me back up a bit. Due to the extreme harassment I received beginning in December of 2009–the goal of which as I’ve pointed out time and again including my Reddit IAMA–was to make me go postal: That is, to do something violent over which they could further justify more harsh measures, increase their “market share” of terror suspects to include LGBTQetc, and remove me, a witness to illegal activities, from the playing board all at the same time.

Due to that harassment, I never really–after all these years–had the time and luxury of processing the end of my 14.5 year long term relationship. I am assuming the incessant dreams, going on since June or July or so, are a message for me to acknowledge this fact. I don’t know or understand why. I’m just doing it in the hopes that they stop.

More probably the Langley Shit Dragon will instead redouble them. This is because it’s made of shit and run by shitty small-hearted psychos who only care about pampering people like their contractors Erik Prince and Jeff Bezos. They’re everything they’ve ever called any enemy and then some. They’ve interfered in US elections and it doesn’t even get mentioned in MSM. They’ve, again, assassinated American citizens–not really a secret, just not discussed–and doesn’t warrant a mention. It’s not just destroying and undermining democracies worldwide, CIA does it at home as well with FBI’s help.

But I seem to have gotten off-topic.

Right. Never married. We could have I suppose. Had friends who went out of state to do that. Why didn’t we? Well, I’m reasonably certain that this whole thing was planned quite a ways in advance. Too many old psychological landmines exploding all over. I had a friend who seemed to go bonkers and run off; he had a friend at UIUC who did that same. Despite being–in between just being dazzled, drugged and confused–aware of the old friend’s situation, there was nothing I could do to stop the same happening to me. Not a single damn thing. It like these was a constant, overwhelming army of spooks out there making sure it all went sideways.

And so it’s only now, the distraction of constant wariness due to this or that crisis coming and going or just coming and lingering for weeks on end, a lull in this ill-advised, self-defeating and ultimately pointless and fruitless–for both CIA and myself!–“war” that I have the time, the luxury of time, to consider the only thing I lost that really mattered to me; the only relationship in my life that ever really worked.

And how I’m the one who brought him to NYC where he went from job to job to wind up at Google. Google is, and from what I can now tell, always was, a surveillance project that combined itself with advertising. Get the consumer to pay for his own surveillance, not unlike getting Americans to pay for illegal CIA ops by purchasing illicit drugs from CIA, mostly unwitting, assets.

And, jumping back to the personal, of course that leads you back to…what am I calling him now? Mr. Crutch might be the most appropriate. The one who got me over the hump that is the real point of this post assuming there actually is one.

Well. There it is then.

BBD – Operational

Come a little bit closer…

Come a little bit closer…

Ran across the article below the other day. And, in typical fashion, it took me five days to connect the dots. See, despite everything I’ve seen and experienced, I still react initially much the way everyone else does: “Just one of those things.”

1988 – 1990

This is not just one of those things. This is another puzzle piece regarding what’s really going on and why they used us as guinea pigs at the NJSF back in the late 1980s. As I’ve noted several times and places, I was there in 1989 and 1990. The previous year, one actress had kind of gone crazy and spent a lot of time, money, energy attempting to figure out what was wrong. Both years I was there another actress each year likewise had problems.


Gene Maddaus, “Former ‘ER’ Actress Vanessa Marquez Shot and Killed by Police,” Variety, 31 August 2018:

Last October, Marquez alleged that she was blacklisted from “ER” by co-star George Clooney after complaining of racial discrimination and sexual harassment.

“Clooney helped blacklist me when I spoke up abt harassment on ER.’women who dont play the game lose career’I did,” she wrote on Twitter.

Clooney issued a statement at the time saying he had nothing to do with casting on the show.

“I had no idea Vanessa was blacklisted,” he said. “I take her at her word. I was not a writer or a producer or a director on that show. I had nothing to do with casting. I was an actor and only an actor. If she was told I was involved in any decision about her career then she was lied to. The fact that I couldn’t affect her career is only surpassed by the fact that I wouldn’t.”

It’s really not difficult, even when you’ve been through what someone like me has, to see that someone who tried to help impoverished Africans at a time when the likes of CIA and Booz Allen Hamilton were ass-deep in stirring up trouble all over the continent for future military misadventures would be a target of smear campaigns run by the likes of CIA, FBI counter-intelligence, and/or the black bag departments of both major political parties {yes, I said both despite his support of Obama and Clinton}.

Anyway, there it is. Who do you contact when there’s a standing agreement between CIA and DoJ to not prosecute? When both major political parties run black ops on each other and the public with such regularity that it’s become normal? When FBI believes it is its job to “protect” America from free thought and anti war protest? * And that all those lines, plus private contractors acting as intelligence agencies for anyone who can pay them, are blurred.

* When it comes to the latter, FBI once had an internal handout flier lumping unions and environmental activist groups and Nazi and white supremacy groups together as similar threats. I don’t think that mentality has changed at all over there, unless it’s that the Nazis are okay.

Where It’s All Going

I think I finally “get” Obama. Not the easiest thing to do, having been under intense harassment while he was in office.

The Bin Laden raid video, for example, where he was playing solitaire and not watching. His reactions to various things, including being called a liar while giving a speech and having to apologize for the “God and guns” comment.

Or the throwaway before the Wisconsin 2010 midterm speech about knowing that slavery will end someday. From what I can see, it’s barely getting started and the neoliberals are just as eager to let it take a major place in world society for the next 80 to 100 years as any racist is; they just don’t care what the skin color of the people being enslaved is because it’s about serving Deutsche Bank, Monsanto, Pfizer and Exxon and they aren’t motivated by ideology, just the accumulation of power and the goals of their top stockholders.

See, we really are moving towards a non-ideological future. One where people will no longer be murdered for being of color, the wrong gender, the wrong religious beliefs, etc.

Instead, people will be murdered en masse for being in the way of something that a multinational corporation wants. Already happening, just not here on the scale that can break through the CNN and Fox News bullshit.

Or for being anywhere near someone else who is stepping out of line via drone. Or for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Outbreaks of contagious disease will be dealt with via drone.

The idea is leadership will be non-violent because it doesn’t want to watch how the sausage is made; make is so, but don’t tell me what you had to do to get there; fix the world, forget how the fixing was done. It’s not liberal; it’s hypercapitalist. They call it utilitarian, but it’s really just another deal with the devil resulting in the same oppressive totalitarian crap under different rules of encrushment.

That’s what the entire Trump debacle is about. Well, that and pretending the rest of the government, the “DC insiders” aren’t just as corrupt, greedy, callous, and warmongering. They are, they just have the good sense to lie about it and play the game where they pretend to serve the people while serving themselves to a share of the money they hand over to 0.001%.

We literally do have an intelligence community actively undermining democracy and we are thanking it because it uses the right buzzwords to tickle our brain and presents a Hollywood story of opposing Trump & Co’s disgusting life style, taste and attitudes. The choices we’ve been given, meaning which side to support, not a real choice about how to be governed and by whom, are all bleak.

The end of the nation state. Will you really miss them anyway? The excesses, the war crimes, the lies, most likely we won’t. But the idea that something because it’s newer it must therefore be better is a mistake. A roomful of people whose only concern is whether or not they got more today doesn’t much sound like an improvement.

World peace through corporate supremacy, “fairness” based on arbitrary murder. This is our future and there is no way to avoid it. The 20th century, including WWI and II, and the Holocaust, is going to look like patty cake compared to the 21st.

Several Topics Briefly

You might recall my review of VICE UK’s Meet the Targeted Individual Community. Spoilers: It ends with disappointment due to the inability to prove that they have electronic chips inside their bodies. I suggested that it is A} easy to convince someone in their position that they have been chipped and B} this serves an operational purpose: To make them more likely to follow a command or subliminal suggestion because they think that they cannot not follow it due to being chipped. Shorter: Convincing them that they are chipped serves as a placebo to make them more compliant.

Well, the KUBARK {CIA’s code name for the project} Counterintelligence Interrogation Manual suggests convincing interrogatees that they have been drugged for much the same reason: It is proven that it increases the likelihood of compliance in the interrogation. This is in the chapter on hypnosis, which by the way suggests that it is possible to get someone to do something outside their normal range of behavior, etc., contrary to conventional, public thought about hypnosis.

Northwest Research & Covert Book Report, “Weaponized Hypnosis – Part 1, The Kubark Manual,” 12 August 2018:


My sources tell me that CIA is cooking fentanyl and is involved in mixing it with heroin inside the US {remember that exploding government meth lab 30 minutes from Ft. Detrick?} in order to make it appear as if China is importing fentanyl into the US and is therefore responsible for the opioid crisis here instead of CIA importing poppy from Afghanistan in order to fund an unlimited number of illegal programs/operations.

This is an instructional situation. This is what CIA always seems to do: Take a bad situation that it created and make it worse. I cannot think of a single exception.


I remind readers that 9/11 was Micheal Ledeen’s idea carried out by Saudi intelligence and CIA cajoling and directing of Al Qaeda. Prior and post to 9/11, CIA through US AID radicalized generations of Afghan and Pakistan children using books:

Joe Stephens and David B. Ottaway, “From U.S., the ABC’s of Jihad,” 23 March 2002, Washington Post:

Jihad had a very different meaning before CIA turned it radical. Going on a diet or quitting smoking were considered jihad.

Anyway, guess what happened in New Mexico recently? Authorities found a compound of people abusing children and training them to clear rooms with assault rifles. There were some interesting religious beliefs attached to it all. The leader? Came to the US from Saudi Arabia. The evidence? Includes various books being used to radicalize the kiddies.

Gadi Schwartz over at NBC has covered the court proceedings and what the police have said. They initially thought the kids were being trained to shoot up schools, which FOX News jumped on. Turns out they were instead talking about attacking banks and one supposes the FBI.

This entire thing has CIA fingerprints all over it. And Saudi intelligence. Haven’t we done enough for those oil monarchs? Thought they were pissed at Canada right now.

Here’s a tweet from the middle / evidence section of Gadi’s twitter thread on the story.


Ukraine’s army has officially changed its salute to a Nazi greeting. As the radicalization of Afghanistan and Pakistan lead to 9/11, we can expect probably a nuke, biological weapon, or dirty bomb some time in the next few decades from Nazi terrorist groups CIA created in order to destabilize Ukraine.

Mordechai Sones, “Nazi collaborator greeting becomes official Ukraine army salute,” Israel National News, 16 August 2018:


Black Boot Diaries

And none of this post would have happened if I hadn’t dreamed about the same person again this morning that I have I think for the last ten days or more. This morning’s sleep deprivation subliminal suggestion-inspired dream took the form of his having become a convicted drug offender.

And, by the way, it’s probably not the person you think. Rather someone who’s been out of my life for a long time. Every night for ten plus days.


Deride and Smother

Or something like that. There are a few side details in here. I’m trying to explain a little bit about how covert ops/PSYOP work as I understand them and at the same time express why I think despite some bad decisions, we should take it easy on Assange.

Probably this is worth going into more detail and retelling it in a different state from that which I originally wrote this chapter of Wicked Game dealing with my donation to Wikileaks on 29 January 2010, several months before Private Manning, Wikileaks, and Julian Assange became household words.

A short side trip here…I will remind/inform folks that the OGD, that’s the Open Government Directive, an initiative ordered by Barack Obama to make government more transparent, had one of its primary document/orders signed the same day everything started to go sideways in my life. There is no question in my mind that there is some connection between my bizarre experiences and that happening.

Imagine an agency that has been ordered to reveal how it does certain things and that it even does certain things but is extremely unhappy about having to comply. What might it do? Drug the living shit out of one of its unwitting assets, have him tell everyone, but make him so f***ing crazy that they won’t believe it. This is the background and why I think things like what I’m detailing below happened.

Back to the main story. In late 2009, I had never heard Chelsea’s name prior to when the arrest occurred and news broke in the middle of the year. If I knew Julian Assange’s name prior to that it was by accident and I had most likely not seen his picture to put a face to the name. I did know of Wikileaks but didn’t exactly know what it was or who founded it and why. I had run across it probably in 2008 or 2009 on some Google search on some topic I’ve forgotten.

Similarly, I had of course heard the word Anonymous, but since I was mostly reading mainstream media in those days knew little beyond it was a hacker group; more informed outlets, I would learn later, refer to it as a collective since the word group implies some kind of organized structure and leadership.

Further I had likely read an article or two by, and therefore read the name Barrett Brown, but, again, had no idea who he might have been beyond a journalist who wrote an article or two that I read.

However, come January of 2010, I was being harassed and likely drugged with LSD and probably some other substances I’ve never been able to identify. Sleeplessness, AKA sleep deprivation, can actually be activated via microwaves per the US Army FOIA on the subject [see Bioeffects of Selected Nonlethal Weapons under microwave heading here].

This is to say nothing of the perfectly normal reaction of being unable to sleep due to wondering who the f***, why the f***, what the f*** and not being able to come up with a coherent answer because you didn’t expect the world’s “guiding light” democracy to behave like Stasi or SS because that kind of history we ignore, sweep under the rug, and generally pretend doesn’t happen in favor of Hollywood narratives where CIA officers and FBI agents give a shit about their fellow Americans. To call those movie narratives fiction is to be redundant.

So I was angry and justifiably so. I sent money to Wikileaks. Again, this is before the Manning story broke and yet it is after DoD lawyers claim Manning started shopping around documents which they claim began in October of 2009. Interesting, isn’t it, how they seemed to know what was going on but allowed it to continue for almost nine months per their timeline, including allowing all those politician and bureaucrat emails get passed along? But that’s not the point of this post.

I’d also note that Manning was in contact with my then neighbor, investigative reporter Jeremy Scahill about the movements of Erik Prince in the wake of some DoJ investigations that went unsurprisingly nowhere. Of course I knew nothing of that either until much later when Scahill discussed or wrote about it publicly.

That was January. By March, I was on my way to Minneapolis having lost it all and was settling into an apartment on University Avenue by the beginning of April 2010. At some point months later, I had a date followed by an overnight stay at my apartment. This date mostly consisted of drinking at the Gay 90s bar.

My guest proceeded to, while in bed, in a very drunken manner, and in a very fake way, call a friend on his cellphone and do the following:

In a loud volume and normal tone of voice beyond being very inebriated: “Hey, hey, listen…listen…” and said the name of the person he called.

Then a phony acting voice and a hushed whisper: “Help. Help me…”

He did this routine twice at which point I gather whomever he called hung up on him. He might have tried to call him back and was cursing about that.

I just laid there next to him staring at the ceiling wondering what the f*** CIA and/or FBI were up to now. What kind of effed up mind game was being played? We eventually fell asleep and that was that.

The next morning things were different. Sex happened. However, afterwards the used condom disappeared. I found it dropped in the hallway, I assume by accident and that he had originally planned some kind of nonsense involving using it as evidence of something revolving around the hamfisted attempt at faking a help-I’m-being-raped phone call.

I think it was a few days later, might have been ten days or two weeks but no more than that—time was experienced oddly back then, side effect of daily harassment and being drugged incessantly— that the accusations of rape against Julian Assange were reported.

This is neither the first nor the last time something like this has happened. It is however probably the most obvious one.

It was actually after this by some months that some major head games were played unsurprisingly involving the honeypot brainwashing thing {if you don’t know what that means, don’t sweat it} and I sent a threatening letter to Assange. This was almost pure mind control as the donation back in January had been. I felt as though it was something I had to do. They actually wanted me to turn hostile against some other people; “deflecting” that onto Wikileaks—given the ire it had raised from the Obama administration—seemed the only way to get the extreme pressure to stop.

You’ll note that this operates under the same principle as torture. The target/victim will say or do what is necessary to make it stop.

Now as to what I regret and what I don’t. A government that engages in covert slavery, which is what mind control in any form is: An attempt to make people do or believe that which they would not normally do, is an evil one. Period. I’ve noted this on FB and Twitter and is probably a good thing to include here. After hearing Masha Gessen discuss Russian politics succinctly and clearly, it reminded me that there used to be that kind of analysis here, in the US about US politics. If there still is some that isn’t based on lies like those espoused by David Frum and Thomas Friedman—not describing the world the way it actually is but rather the way they and the special interests they represent want it to be or to appear—it is well hidden. She said three simple sentences about Putin’s Russia and I got the image immediately and completely. So here it is.

The US government is not fascist, socialist or even particularly racist. It is post-ideological. It is about wielding and accumulating power. That’s all it is. The rest is just a toolbox for confusing us about its true nature and its complete loyalty and partnership with multinational corporations–mostly banks–to allow them to acquire all the wealth there is; ideological explanations are now a waste of breath, ink, and pixels for trying to rationalize that which is really simple and obvious:

I cannot accept your canon that we are to judge Pope and King unlike other men, with a favourable presumption that they did no wrong. If there is any presumption it is the other way against holders of power, increasing as the power increases. Historic responsibility [that is, the later judgment of historians] has to make up for the want of legal responsibility [that is, legal consequences during the rulers’ lifetimes]. Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men, even when they exercise influence and not authority: still more when you superadd the tendency or the certainty of corruption by authority. There is no worse heresy than that the office sanctifies the holder of it. That is the point at which . . . the end learns to justify the means. You would hang a man of no position, . . . but if what one hears is true, then Elizabeth asked the gaoler to murder Mary, and William III ordered his Scots minister to extirpate a clan. Here are the greater names coupled with the greater crimes. You would spare these criminals, for some mysterious reason. I would hang them, higher than Haman, for reasons of quite obvious justice; still more, still higher, for the sake of historical science. . . .

Though sometimes Acton himself said some creepy things and got some things wrong I expect. But he got to the heart of it here. It’s about power and ideological labels fail to explain the actions. The reason for power is power, to borrow and alter what some sad-sack Scottish farmer once said.

We are still clinging to the idea that somehow corporate mass media is not completely corrupted; that somehow they still get us, if only sometimes, the information that is important and matters. It’s not necessarily that what it reports is untrue, that it’s always “fake news”; it’s that it is frequently not the most important thing we need to know that gets reported and that the most important things we need to know are being buried under a mountain of shit laid there mostly by the Langley Shit Dragon, sometimes referred to as the Central Intelligence Agency.

We have to let go of this notion if we are to have any chance of overcoming power’s desire to hold and lord over us absolute power. We must. If we don’t, this is a recipe for repeating the mistakes of the past every bit as much as being divided is. Anonymous was made up of libertarians and anarchists. That must mean something.
