A Rose By Any Other Name

This post is yet another I don’t really want to do. Why this time? Because it looks odd. I’ve been trying to avoid odd even though odd is the one thing my life has had an abundance of for the past ten years or so.

And I’m not sure it’s terribly informative either. Being trolled by CIA, or maybe something even stranger…one individual within the intelligence community who wields of lot of power and therefore we can assume we probably don’t know his name…well, it’s all a bit much. He can’t help revealing his “genius” if only to one person? Sounds a bit Hollywood-y.

Probably, this post should instead be about how people are invested in particular narratives and cannot therefore accept things when those narratives change. And how I’m no exception to that, but at the same time I can still see behind the curtain, or fourth wall if you like, and see that “random” events always seems to serve the purposes of that old Langley Shit Dragon, the Central Intelligence Agency, or at least thereabouts when it helps competitor NSA as well. *

Right. Sibel Edmonds once mentioned how some of the names coming from spying, leaking, whistleblowing news seem a little strange. When I heard it, I immediately went to the place where I think she was drugged by, probably CIA but maybe FBI before testifying about various officials, including eight members of Congress, about selling nuclear secrets to Israel, which by the way passed through Turkey and probably also wound up in the hands of a world class arms dealer.

But the point: Sibel was, in my opinion, clearly drugged and that made her appear, as was intended, unreliable as a witness. It also made her, in my opinion, more susceptible to the machinations of someone connected to CIN. The kinds of stories and ideas coming out of her group sound a lot like what FOIA revealed about CIN’s Accuracy In Media and its connections to the very anti-leftists in CIA and retired from the intelligence community in general.

But I’m digressing. The point: Names like Reality Winner. When you’ve been drugged, such things bounce around in your head. Look back, probably not as far as I’d like to think on this blog, and you’ll find me doing the same. Always part of the intention in MKULTRA drug experiments was finding ways to assassinate character.

But then you think back a bit. How did it all appear to start? You watched a couple of interviews. One was about the American Revolution and you realize you actually live near or on a major battleground. Then you see an interview about mercenaries being used in Bush/Cheney’s war on terror. You recall your brief time studying the history of mercs in Western civilization due to playing King John in the play of the same title. You recall it typically didn’t end well, usually with some kind of coup attempt. Now you learn that the remaining co-founder of said corporation is the son of the man who created the Religious Right movement.

You think at the time that all of this, including trying to jump to the head of the line by selling the story to Clooney’s Smokehouse, not knowing the hell he went through on the set of Syriana some years prior, though as you look at that and what happened to you, you know there’s no way that was all just bad luck. You think though at the time that it was all your idea. Later you realize you were someone else’s pawn, probably attempting to harass both Prince and Clooney at the same time, though precisely who and why is hidden from you. Kind of sounds bipartisan though doesn’t it?

Anyway. You write a story about the ghost of Nathan Hale, whose statue sits outside CIA HQ. You learn that America’s first spy may have been gay. Not something those warhawk conservatives wingnuts would care to get out.

So there’s Nathan Hale.

Then you meet Terry Albury years later in Minneapolis. Not so much a name thing this time. But you met him. He was later outed as a source by the outlet founded by the guy you based the Hale story on.

And then you hear Reality Winner. And then a drone expert named Daniel Hale becomes the third person jailed by the US government. Well it’s a bit much.

And you also note, and wonder why, the Barack Obama administration almost certainly knew about Hale and didn’t go after him and you have to wonder why that might be.

You decide that probably Obama didn’t want a Snowden for assassination on his watch. Going after him may have actually brought more attention to more illegal programs. And of course drones are not the sole source of CIA’s assassination methods; merely the one they acknowledge–sort of–as being real.

It’s fairly f***ing weird, though. Even when not, so far as I know, being drugged at present. And this isn’t the only example of this kind of strangeness. Some are more personal and likely wouldn’t make much sense to someone other than the–surveilled for some length of time prior to being targeted, target. Others instances I’ve documented from time to time.

But let’s forget potentially someone inside the intelligence community being so insane that they enjoy trolling me and others through their covert ops planning. Let’s just assume for the moment that isn’t true, that somehow, just a few years after writing a story about a Hale partly based on Scahill’s work, a Hale appears in his life and they pal around and he provides him docs. That somehow, that’s just coincidence.

Or perhaps we freeze the idea for a few paragraphs and realize that post is the point, that this is their “signature” so that some of us will know who was responsible. Maybe.

Anyone with any sense knows that the CIA always comes after people. The old saying is that if you happen to die of natural causes before they get their revenge on you, that they will dig you up and skullf*** your corpse. This came from the intro of a book on dirty tricks, which they are the central repository for and primary conductor of.

So, where are they? What are the ops that CIA undertook against Scahill for drone reporting and exposing their assassination program mercenary Erik Prince? Where is it? What form did it take? What is CIA’s M.O. in general? Do they openly do ops or do they leave plausible deniability? When and where are the revenge ops CIA must conduct because that is what it does?

Further, where are the ops that are designed to destroy the opposition to the sprawling public and private intelligence community that, for example, recently saw a contractor with ties to Mossad apologize for targeting Harvey Weinstein’s sexual abuse victims? Yes, both those things happened. We allow these things to exist and apologizing isn’t going to stop the next one. This is just because they were exposed. This time.

Everyone is behaving as if CIA doesn’t exist. It is just bizarre beyond belief. Sure, I get that you don’t want to go around seeing CIA everywhere, even though it has a budget 150% that of record-everything-planetwide NSA’s, plus additional money for the drone program, additional money for direct war related things from DoD, and of course all the opium in Afghanistan and coca in Columbia. I mean, what wouldn’t they fund with all the moolah to play with apart from anything the least bit f***ing constructive? They’d probably distract everyone while climate change gets so bad there’s no longer anything that can be done about it except kill and die, would be my guess. But, hey, you go right on thinking that the people who shoved food up detainee asses and called it a medical procedure have your best interests in mind. I’m sure that next Hollywood film detailing how they’re such great heroes just looking out for the little guy will save your kids and grandkids from dying from 132 degree weather. Yay, superheroes!

Probably the one thing I really object to regarding writing on Scahill is the celebrity journalist thing. The man did, like it or not, and probably most of us would not do it, embed in war zones, reported on and from within war zones, and did investigative reporting. Surely we can’t be so far gone, so mind controlled to think that detailing Erik Prince’s work with CIA and multinational corporations is useless.

Should The Intercept apologize for some of this, understandably not wanting to further put people in legal jeopardy, and consider dealing with the Cole problem? And the treatment of possibly Marcy Wheeler and maybe Heather Marsh? Seems likely. But we, the rest of us, must also start thinking about what CIA reciprocity would look like and who it would target and how. Palantir alone, and it was reported they intended to do something, could be hired and done some of this. I’m really bothered by the cocksure when clearly where CIA is concerned not a single person, because legally they can apparently murder you with a flying exploding robot even if you are a US citizen, can be cocksure.

Probably there’s a better word than cocksure to use. Sounds misogynist. For that, I do not blame CIA.

Note: I support whistleblowers, including all three of these. There’s little point in my talking about that since there are plenty of others, Radack, Drake, Rowley, Kiriakiou, etc, talking about it more eloquently. I must instead discuss my unique, if useless in this case, perspective. Also note that I am not questioning any of them on their sincerity. Far from it. The point I seem to have trouble communicating, and very intelligent people seem to have a problem grasping, is that it is possible to be sincere and manipulated or “mind controlled” at the same time. In fact, it’s better if you think you’re doing what you’re doing because you want to. This is why it’s called unconsciousness and what it is that is manipulated. There’s a difference between taking a stand and someone inside and powerful and criminal attempting to use, spin, bend those efforts for their own ends. The difference between what we are used to, of course bureaucrats try to spin just like politicians when surprises occur, may be in this case occurring before the whistle is actually blown. They see a potential info-bomb ticking and decide to explode it when and where they want rather than wait for it to grassroots itself and be more of an inconvenience. This is the 21st Century, if only the first half, in which human civilization still exists and has not collapsed due to mass migrations and water and food shortages due to a longstanding power addiction to CIA preventing changes we needed and still need.

* The question of needing more spending on HUMINT, which would favor CIA, or ELINT which would favor NSA, was a big one right after 9/11. Was one of those many things that we debated on EZBoard before it got hacked away by, according to FBI, a disgruntled former employee of the IT department. This was before 2009 when the crazy stuff started. 2005, IIRC.

BBD – I Can See Clearly Now

Or not.

This is a picture after having scrubbed my windshield for several minutes last night attempting to get whatever was on it off since it prevents seeing out. Might be tree sap.

Except of course I wasn’t parked near any trees before I noticed this and it was raining yesterday morning and earlier in the week, no problems at all.

But then maybe I just didn’t notice it during the day, when the Sun was out. Hard to say.

Funny, though, how I happened to take a gander at the security camera yesterday afternoon and noticed what appeared to be on that little screen someone making a beeline for my car, which I quickly dismissed as just a random passerby.

And that is, probably, exactly what it was.

What’s the point? That A} attempts at intimidation on a level where you’re dealing with three-letter agencies is going to necessarily almost always involve plausible deniability. Maricopa County has a lot of sappy trees in it. It’s an easy calculation to increase the likelihood of an automobile collision by using the local flora as cover. B} That you don’t really know. C} That even someone who’s seen more than their fair share of actual covert nonsense can easily be pulled into a false sense of security because you still somehow hold onto the idea that somewhere there’s someone in power who isn’t completely insane and you know there have to be better ways to settle this nonsense. D} That you happening to notice the person walking toward your car was itself probably a “trick” to interweave the possibility that someone sprayed that crap on with whatever really happened. That is, these clowns are as likely to try to take credit for naturally occurring problems as they are to cause faux-naturally occurring problems. Because, why not? And, of course, E} Most of it is to drive you crazy or at least make you seem that way.

Anyway, it should be noted that your average Lotus Esprit with the cement sprayers behind the license plate that you use while transporting and showing off in front of your new KGB girlfriend has some potential sub-/side methods in the dirty tricks book.

The Spy Who Paved Me

Assassination Reconsiderations

Does motive always mean culprit? When it’s among the poor, working class, and often even among the wealthy, we can usually safely assume so.

However, when the real purpose is something bigger, like creating a permanent rift between half the populace and the other half, one should tread carefully.

For example, Cheney’s alleged dark warning to Minnesota and Paul Wellstone just before the latter’s death in a plane crash and the collapse of a bridge, well how hard is it to imagine? Certainly the collision between New York Times reporter Judith Miller and Cheney is a matter of record. But is that the same?

I don’t think so. As I’ve noted elsewhere, probably on Twitter some months back, Cheney seemed a surprised, to the point he couldn’t stop laughing–I have resembled that remark from time to time for similar reasons–and was shaking his head in disbelief. Whatever else he may be, he had issues with the Langley Shit Dragon since the 1970s, possibly related to the Frank Olson case in some manner or other, and appears to be a “targeted individual” otherwise. I’m not suggesting sainthood here. I am suggesting maybe it’s easier to label household names as bad people than it is anonymous caterer spies. And that we like having people to blame.

So I’m suggesting that like the canceled news conference due to a fire, he didn’t order the hit on Wellstone either. Once again this sounds like CIA trying to spread as much doubt and blame elsewhere as it possibly can. Much like the Houston Plan, where CIA refused to spy on Americans when asked BECAUSE IT WAS ALREADY SPYING ON AMERICANS AND DIDN’T WANT TO ADMIT IT, so it can be with assassination that can make it seem as if all our problems stem from neoconservatism {and for that matter neoliberalism} when in fact there is very hard historical evidence that many more of our problems than people can accept originate from a department/agency that does not even require Congress anymore because it draws much of its funding from the illegal drug business.

Similarly, I must think that Michael Hastings, whose book and reporting resulted in the loss of jobs of some senior military officers due to insubordination, was likely them as well. While the officers might have been thankful it happened–they should be ashamed if so–they didn’t do it either.

This is just the Langley Shit Dragon playing at being Satan: It provides “luck” which feeds into your dark side. Is it any wonder Hollywood, Wall Street, and SilVal all seem to bask in scandal and employee abuse with a Velocipooper on the loose? And then they thank it by praising it in film, giving it moonlighting jobs, and handing over the data from civil rights activists so it can shovel some more of itself all over this now well-fertilized country of ours.

Aaron Swartz I’m still not 100% on for some reason. Could be FBI counterintelligence, though that’s really just an extension of CIA as well. See for example George Hunter White who freely bounced back and forth as well as to DEA precursors. Still this way for some, I imagine.

The Langley Magicians

According to the manual written in part or whole by stage magician John Mulholland in the 1950s {see Subproject 4 for links to it; you can actually buy it now}, the basic ways to drug a person involve sleight-of-hand and dispensers disguised as ordinary objects. Coins, for example. The officer would squeeze it and a drop or two of whatever would fall into the target’s drink after diverting their attention. CIA officers did this or something similar to an American living in Paris, France.

Today it is no doubt quite different. The ability to get a human being to choose a particular gallon of milk or particular piece of meat from a buffet is now doable. Really. You wouldn’t even know there was any interference with your decision-making at all.

How whatever substance appeared in the food is another matter. Another shopper, not even necessarily an officer but an asset, could inject, spray, or spill whatever is required.

The Langley Shit Dragon sits back with its proxy army under control and does as it pleases somewhat comfortable with the idea that nothing that happens can be traced back to it. It’s a great racket for psychopaths. Your average serial killer/rapist wishes he could enjoy such power and seeming invulnerability to scrutiny and justice for his actions.

Ignoring this is not going to make it go away. Becoming frightened and paranoid isn’t either.

Asking questions, ignoring the lies and the distractions, recovering from what they do, and accepting the fact that heroes are punished and villains are rewarded at Chez Shit Dragon is a huge step. Educating oneself on its methods is another.

And no longer accepting what the mainstream media calls true and false is also. Because generically speaking, their sources are shit.

Booth

“There’s always been a CIA and there always will be a CIA.” –A complete ignoramus. CIA was formed in 1947. Many agencies have come and gone and been reformed since.

John Wilkes Booth was a favorite subject of Paul Barry, the founder and director of the Dodge Foundation-backed New Jersey Shakespeare Festival. As I’ve noted before, the NJSF was where CIA ran some field training using the staff at the Festival as covert training dummies as well as recruiting some of us as “mind control” puppets. It doesn’t and didn’t work like it does in the movies. It’s more like you think you’re doing what you want to do but you have someone else’s heavy influence “helping” you to decide. It wasn’t about the heavy lifting of infiltrating some Russian company’s military factory or assassinating some head of state. It was more about controlling Hollywood, Wall Street, and spying on them, occasionally harassing them, using us as distractions and scapegoats for their attempts to control it all.

As a side note, I’m confident that there’s some odd way of documenting things that defies FOIA. There’s been talk that assassination operations have always been somewhat paperless to begin with. I believe there’s some kind of tech that allows electronic data to be held but is somehow impossible to duplicate and is not attached the regular networks. This is how the really nasty stuff gets planned and executed. Classified technology itself is a FOIA exception, so imagine actually keeping non-technology related information in that format in order to hide it. That’s how they think. They learn from the past problems like Marks success in court that lead to his book The Manchurian Candidate.

But back to the point about Booth. Booth, an actor, thought that his act against Lincoln would re-start the war, reverse emancipation, and he would be welcomed as a hero in the South. While of course some were more concerned that their free labor days were over and applauded his act, take a look at what some others had to say. From Wikipedia, taken just now, before it gets edited by some anonymous IP, mostly from Kunhardt’s book:

We can set aside the debate regarding the general act of forcibly removing heads of state for a moment. The point here is, Booth’s radicalism prevented him from seeing two things clearly: First, people were sick of war. Second, it was actually Lincoln who wanted to take it easy on the South, and was holding back his cabinet who wanted to smother it in some self-righteous indignation that was more likely about their own business interests in the North which would enjoy a more even playing field since the South would now have to pay its laborers.

In other words, it backfired horribly.

Now, you might be thinking, “Well, Chris is an actor. ‘Assassinating’ a government agency {which is not really what I’m doing; I’m just grabbing some catharsis due to what they did to me while someone else does that} could easily backfire. The premiere HUMINT agency might be needed in the near future. We might have another major terror attack without them.”

Nonsense. Their name isn’t Mudd, it’s shit. They thought that everyone would be happy after they facilitated 9/11. They thought that the resulting cash cow would be more than enough to quiet anyone who wondered about an agency willing to murder so many of the citizens of the country it is supposed to be protecting would let it be. Wars must be fought. Prisoners must be tortured.

And so-called mind control must be perfected in order to reduce labor to a zero-dollar game once again. Who would complain? The elites stand to gain everything. Why worry about it? This is what is at stake.

Because, like Booth, the Central Intelligence Agency assumes everyone else is like them. To a small extent, we are; we are all pirates of some kind. We are all imperfect.

But we don’t all drown our conscience in the bathtub. We don’t all think honor is something quaint. We don’t all think an oath is something to be broken along with not only all the laws of foreign countries but our own as well. And we don’t all completely lack empathy and think slavery coming back is a good idea.

And now FBI has been drawn in. Again. As COINTELPRO really stemmed from CIA’s MHCHAOS, FBI’s got Hollywood stars in its eyes and thinks sister CIA is once again the greatest thing since sliced apple pie. It probably still isn’t getting what’s happening. Which doesn’t really bother me that much. As I noted once on Twitter, aeration is what can cause a second ship too close to one that sinks to sink as well. In many ways, it has some serious systemic institutional problems and a problematic, racist history that may be best served at least symbolically by shutting it down as well and making something else from the ground up.

The irony that CIA didn’t really understand the rest of us is, well, ironic. It is changes and challenges, such as paid labor presented to the South, that stirs up competition, and competition is what makes the economy move. Right now, still, after 17 years, fear is running the economy. Companies and investors are afraid to invest heavily because of the atmosphere CIA {and Micheal Ledeen and Saudi Intelligence} created when they made 9/11 happen. It’s stagnating the West. They are pretending that this would have happened anyway. No. It is their doing.

And I’m confident that history is going to show that getting rid of it was not only a good thing to do, but necessary. It’s in the way of every kind of progress imaginable and at the same time destroying things that ought to be preserved.

What good it is? Flush it. Flush the ChIt drAgon before it has a chance to strike again.

It probably does have contingencies planned for having its plug pulled. And we may not find them all and stop them all. But if that mentality isn’t eerily akin to “Is Paris burning?,” what is?

BBD – Simulation of Assassination

Additionally, there was a point where said actor from previous post–who is a good guy–and I were not getting along. Yet another actor had a squirt gun shaped like a small machine gun. I tried to shoot him with it and several other actors grabbed me, you know, like Secret Service.

Over water.

They were playing a lot of games back then and there. The frustration at the time of being unable to scratch that itch was something. Probably something to tug on again years later.

BBD – Work and Those Who Sometimes Visit {Updated}

De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da…

Pretty much all I want to say to the Deep State these days.

First I’ll note that the guy who introduced me to Mike of Gary and Mike CIA/drug cartel infame, has been will be sentenced and after he begins serving time on Monday. Last I heard, my co-worker was expecting between 9 months and a year. Don’t know what he actually got.

Update: He got nine months, but less time served and some concurrently, he will be serving six months.

Probably I mentioned some of this vaguely in 2017 at some point, if only on Twitter. He had been asked by his cousin to drive a rental car while she and a friend of hers drove another vehicle. At the Arizona-California border—in a town that specializes in using drug sniffing dogs to support itself—he was stopped and horrified to discover that his rental car had quite a supply of hidden heroin. The cousin, it is rumored, had been told by someone on the inside that DEA had an informant in her organization and therefore she used her cousin—who, again, introduced me to Mike—as bait.

Note that Mike is retired and disabled and did not return to the illicit drug business after he got out of prison. When I asked him if he was concerned about telling me the stories, he replied that he didn’t care if the Cartels or CIA whacked him. I tried to explain that if they know that, that is not how they would go after him.

And here we are.

As I’ve noted on Twitter, and like the details of the sentencing of my co-worker, this is still a bit sketchy, but we had a man armed with a shotgun and pistol roaming our parking lot and entering the store last weekend. I was not there. Police took an hour to respond to a man who I am told was clearly on some drug or other and exclaiming he intended to shoot the place up. PPD claimed they had an emergency elsewhere and therefore were delayed.

What I also have not blogged, because I never seem to get the rest of the story, not until I’ve gone out on a limb and blogged about it anyway. Last year a man died in the parking lot. PPD is keeping details from the autopsy from the public. I tend to believe that this is because they’ve been unable to rule out foul play.

However, by all accounts—wasn’t there at the time—there wasn’t anyone standing near him. A nearby witness said he stood up and fell over. When the witness reached him, it appeared as though he had fallen perfectly on his face and likely forced his nose cartilage up into his brain.

{So, you see, sometimes when it appears I’m on a Twitter rampage and don’t give a reason, there actually is one. This is fairly common. I don’t like blogging about things until I’ve got the facts.}

As for how the latter 2017 thing might have been done, let me start with the silly one that I don’t think is the case. That of the often written up so-called invisibility cloak. The idea, a special forces or Navy Seal would approach unseen, strike a target in the face with a deadly blow, and then hide. At night there’d be no need for something so fancy. But this did occur in broad daylight.

So more likely, but how to get him to fall just right is a question, would be something used at range. They’ve long been developing weapons that don’t leave more of a trace than something that looks like an insect bite. CIA and US Army during the 1970s described an attachment to any standard weapon that could, depending on the substance within, incapacitate a guard without the guard even realizing he’d been hit with the dart or “flechette” as I believe they referred to it.

Then there is the “perfect concussion,” though that wouldn’t necessarily cause unconsciousness and, again, you’re stuck with how to make someone fall perfectly without putting their arms up defensively on their face with sufficient force.

Guess the cloak isn’t sounding so outrageous after all. I’ve heard even Arizona Rangers can walk right up behind trained police officers at night, tap them on the shoulder, and fade back into darkness before they turn around. But that’s part of another story for another day.

Jacqueline Howard, “Scientists get closer to creating real-life invisibility cloak,” CNN, 20 July 2016:
