BBD – More BLM

Briefly.

Something like five or six incidents at work in the past few to several days, two of those involving violence, all very heated, the second one that I was actually there for ended with the customer threatening to shoot me, and all involved African American males.

I’ve been over this before. I documented as best I could the strange incident in Minneapolis where a cop at a grocery store was behaving strangely and I got a sudden urge to punch him, and how that reminded me of the YouTube video that got Barrett Brown into trouble. I also wrote, though that’s pretty far back, about how I saw a man being beaten and ran into another who was raging mad for no apparent reason in Minneapolis.

I’ll be honest here. I don’t know if it’s the FBI counterintelligence, the CIA, or GOP’s black bag department {or if there’s even much difference between those three entities} using their little toys to create this…disharmony.

But what I do know is it’s very odd to be doing this anywhere near me at this point. What’s the point ultimately? There isn’t going to be any big revelation regarding the state of the art brainhacking; nor worse yet, how it’s being used in practice. Not without a whistleblower. And even then, I’m not really certain the public will get it, assuming such a whistleblower doesn’t just wind up dead before that happens.

So it must be something else. But I’ll be damned if I know what that could be.

Way Down We Go

It’s obligatory, isn’t it? I was going to go with a different title, but apparently Caitlin Sweet, et al, beat me to it, referring to the deserving portion. Instead you get a step away from that with a Kaleo lyric from a song containing a similar phrase.

ME, ME, ME

Let me get the personal crap out of the way first. The party that decided it would be fun to screw me over in 2010-2011 got their asses handed to them last night. Am I gloating? Only a little.

But then I’m not looking for housing in Canada {again}, planning mass protests, or even sharpening my hacker skills either.

WHAT HAPPENED?

I see three or four different issues here.

JOBS

A very quick but interesting rundown on manufacturing job losses in the US and where they occurred by Andrew Flowers over at Nate Silver’s FiveThiryEight. Note how well it matches the red you may have seen on your various e-screens last night. In 2008, Edwards was the only candidate talking about poverty. After he dropped out, there was no candidate talking about poverty. And, so, eight years later the working class gave Washington, DC the finger. I’d cheer except of course I see several problems with Trump bringing back manufacturing, assuming he even intends to do so.

Automation is one. Even if there were a manufacturing boom in the US in a few years, much of it would be automated. Sorry, Joe the Widget-Assembler.

Two, there would be the unattractive choices of either lowering minimum wage {which Trump has already suggested he wants to do} or raising pay so that people can buy whatever it is being manufactured. Of course, they could also reduce the requirements to get loans in order to afford the stuff. You know, what almost destroyed the world economy back in ’08.

This is a recipe for a second Great Depression. But don’t get too worried yet. I will explain how this is going to be President Pence anyway, with Trump sticking his head in every few months shouting at people and screwing things up until he disappears again to do whatever he can to build his fortune further.

GOP HILLARY HATE

The Republicans have done such a great job of painting Hillary as a radical liberal {she really, really isn’t even a moderate one} while joining her at bible study for decades and decades that they couldn’t pull it back…assuming they really wanted to. The Bushes may have publicly endorsed her, but I wonder who they really voted for in the booth.

I’m still hearing this ridiculous mantra. “Never-you-mind we’ve had solid pro-business running things since Carter. Trust us, they want to tax you to death. And we can’t steal your money as quickly if it goes to the gubberment first.”

THE DEMOCRATIC STRATEGY

The saying went, “Bill Clinton took a step to the right and the Republicans in Congress took three.” So the Dems decided to keep stepping to the right to watch the GOP fall off the cliff.

Except the working class didn’t give a shit about the rest of that. Didn’t care about Trump’s personal baggage. Didn’t care that he was a racist. DC failed working people. Here’s a guy talking negative about NAFTA. F— the Times and MSNBC, they aren’t helping either and are stuck on shit like who gets to use which bathroom while these non-working working people are struggling to pay bills. Maybe I should have gone with “It’s the Economy, Stupid.”

In essence, given the choice between a Republican in name and a Republican in policy only, they chose the former. The Democrats also abandoned the unions in order to move that far right. Turns out Wall Street does have immense influence over media but when people are pissed off enough they don’t listen to it. Wall Street provides cash, but it doesn’t actually vote. This fact should give us hope but look what we wound up with.

At the last moment, the Republicans fell to the ground and the Democrats were the ones who went over the cliff. This is what they get for abandoning people and embracing multinationals. They forgot where their strength came from.

AND FINALLY TRIBALISM

Read: Racism and xenophobia. Watts {see the first link up top} covered this. It is very likely in the genes and that makes sense if you think about human history. It would be nice if we started surviving via cooperation, but there’s those hardwired things in the head again.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN?

Right. The Republicans have control of it all for now. It will be the Pence-Ryan show. Repeal Obamacare. Maybe try to repeal or mess with gay marriage, we’ll see. More corporate welfare in the guise of creating jobs {again, multinationals make money by providing services while eliminating jobs and paying less for those that remain; they are the real enemy}.

Trump is going to find out, probably very, very rudely, that he isn’t in charge, not really. What will he do? Hard to say, probably have a meltdown.

The racism and poverty problems will be exacerbated. Trump will have his fingers in his ears and it won’t be him running the show anyway. There will be months of disconnect between what Trump says and what Pence is doing, providing much confusion.

Wars will continue and maybe we’ll even have new ones. In other words, the status quo.

The History of Slime, or, You’re Next, Sister

As noted below, this is mostly an expansion on the previous post, in this case magnifying power’s practice of demonizing groups for its own selfish ends. We really need to start considering the huge implications of 21st Century COINTELPRO, MHCHAOS and how, when these programs are active, things really are not often what they seem.

BACKGROUND – THE JEWISH CONSPIRACY

Probably the famous/infamous case of maligning an entire group of people is that of anti-Semitism. But where did the “Jewish conspiracy” originate?

From a forgery, a book called The Protocols of the Meetings of the Learned Elders of Zion, first printed in Russia in 1903. Henry Ford printed 500,000 copies in the US in the 1920s and Hitler made it standard in schools starting in 1933 despite having been exposed as a forgery in 1921.

Though anti-Semitism predated the book, it gave anti-Semite groups something to hold up as evidence of evil intent by Jews the world round. This sometimes persists even today.

BACKGROUND – MALIGNING AFRICAN AMERICANS

Though the FOX crowd loves to point out how long ago the Civil War was, etc. the problems associated with racial bigotry continued far later. The best example is, after WWII, both the Veterans Administration and Housing & Urban Development gave white veterans inexpensive housing. African American veterans were denied this and essentially sent to ghettos.

This is where two noxious myths came from. The first, whites pulling themselves up by their own bootstraps when it was really a social program. The other being that war is good for the middle class. It was, in that very narrow sense, only because the wealthy and corporations were taxed at would-blow-Bill-O’Reilly’s-mind levels. This was not just a result of paying down the war debt, but was widely accepted as a way of preventing another Great Depression.

The irony here can be found in both myths. The anti-reparations crowd really doesn’t get that they have benefited from white “reparations” after WWII. The pro-war crowd has disconnected itself from taxation and redistribution of wealth downwards in order to maintain a healthy society.

It only gets worse from there. The reporting of the late Gary Webb, though often maligned also as saying something he didn’t, that is it was an act of racism as well as greed, was probably accurate. We can see the same where Afghanistan and Honduras are concerned. Stealing the heroin from Russia and then increasing the output while running death squads and maintaining military bases after ousting Zelaya makes that pretty clear. Lest you think this is all about the US, it isn’t. Investors in Honduras infrastructure include China, Japan, the UK, and some EU countries.

Given all that, it seems not only likely that it was more kicking of the poor while they’re down, but also much, much larger and systematic than when Webb reported on it. We are not only the real power behind the big drug cartels, we also coddle international banks who launder their money and fund terrorism. This is why so many stories about the minutiae are for many purposes a waste of time to write and read. If you cannot see the big picture, what’s the point of arguing about one or two of a thousand symptoms of the same disease that is power and its tendency to abuse?

This is all about power; not party or philosophy. Purely mercenary and selfish, it is foolhardy to look for power figures who oppose what they clearly all support.

For example, though the Clintons like to brag about getting 1 million people off of welfare, there are several things that do not really indicate that this was necessarily a good thing. Where do the people who cannot eat and cannot find a job wind up? Automation, outsourcing overseas, and productivity, AKA overworking people, mean that there aren’t enough jobs to go around, and due to higher demand, don’t pay enough to rescue the economy from itself.

Then there is support from the private prison industry for Hillary right now. We are the most imprisoned country per capita on the planet. Is it any wonder when there is money to be made that this happened?

The system itself creates situations where the choices are bad and worse. And so lots of people wind up circling the drain and getting labeled as “Superpredators,” a term Hillary Clinton herself used referring to African American teens.

Then you have Barack Obama who, as I stated in the previous post–and this one is really a continuation of that one–released 600 prisoners and didn’t even make a dent in the statistics. We incarcerate more than that in a day.

Identity politics, though less offensive than Trump’s blatant racist remarks or Cruz’ friends’ calls for internment camps for atheists, is in effect the same without the insult added to the injury. At least on the larger scale; I’m quite certain that there are those who work for them engage in the same kind of bigoted language. The assumption that because candidate X is this or that means that they will favor this or that is a false one.

Trump’s comments serve to draw voters to Hillary and drive voters to the GOP at the same time. Dividing us is the goal here, lest half of us show up in the Financial District in Manhattan, the other half on the Mall in DC, demanding a new New Deal.

BACKGROUND – ISLAMOPHOBIA

Horrific education, a favorite thing to get cannibalized in order to shove money instead to places where it seems to wind up in the pockets of politicians, bureaucrats, bankers and brokers, has lead to an unbelievably ignorant public. Most don’t know the simplest things about Islam. How much worse when they don’t even get reminded where Al Qaeda and the Taliban came from?

Surveys also show that people who do not know any Muslims personally are more likely to think they are all violent and prone to terrorism. We can call this the ‘boogeyman’ effect and leave it there, I suppose. In war, and this is a war of a kind, more financial than cultural despite what you would read in right- and leftwing leaning outlets alike, demonizing the other side is part of it. This is where most of it comes from.

But, there is a problem. Though the most recent big news attack {as far as I know, I’m busy writing this right now}, the one in San Bernardino, did involve a couple who were Muslim. And despite stories like this one, where the real motive may have been to rob a train {something so-called fiscal conservatives and war hawks alike can understand and get behind: Piracy}, it’s the meme, the image that sticks with most people. Think of it this way:

“News said another shooting was done by a Muslim or a black. Lesson: Avoid Muslims and blacks.”

We are a pattern-matching-for-survival species, and that is what happens in the heads of many people. The nuances, the root problems, the specifics, don’t matter to them. Simpler to avoid and either allow, or push, leaders to spy on all these people and limit their freedoms. Never mind the specifics indicate that it doesn’t help, that these WASPs are also included in these dragnets, and that the potential for financial, personal and political abuse is not only likely but already reported on in some instances.

THE POINT – ADDING LGBTQA TO THE HITLIST

While my story is complicated in many ways, the bottom line is they hoped, and still hope, to push me to violence in order to both silence me on being a witness to illegal activities and to start building the same kind of “forgery” that implicates gays in the same way that they have done to African Americans and Muslims. That’s it.

And despite what you might see on the cover of OUT magazine’s anniversary issue {could you imagine putting Reagan, who appointed one SSM justice, or Cheney, who supported SSM before Obama and Clinton, on that cover?}, Barack Obama and the people who work for him were all on board with that. Clearly. It is impossible that it could be otherwise. See either Wicked Game or my IAMA on Reddit for more on that.

This is why I say we cannot afford to elect another Republican {nor stealth-GOP Libertarians} nor Democrat {nor “Independent” Bernie Sanders who counts FBI and CIA, with two of the worst civil and human rights records in US history as social programs} to be elected.

That leaves Green Party for me. As far as voting goes, the only hope I see–and it will not be a panacea by any means–is to get third parties their 10% of the vote in order to start breaking the stranglehold that the two thoroughly corrupt parties and their false choices present.

The political spectrum looks like this:

+++G+++Ctr+++++DR

Where, wedged just between the D and R, is Hitler. They’ve so filled our heads with left-dread, that we now see anything near the center, much less to the left of it and less far than these two are to the very far right, as some terrifying thing that must be avoided.

I’m terrified now, aren’t you? And they’ve had it all for a long time. We can do better, but only if we get desperate enough to stop choosing the lesser perceived weasel.

Funny and Not So Funny Thoughts

As anyone who reads this blog knows, there’s a lot of TV fiction that I deeply despise. Also, I don’t believe in chemtrails.

Regarding the first point, I live in a house where other people do on occasion watch really bad TV. I caught a portion of Scorpion the other night. A team of geniuses who started out working for the FBI and now work for DHS prevent crimes and stuff.

The most recent episode included using a tooth implant for surveillance. Implants are also something I’m not a big believer in, at least when it comes to those people who have probably actually been the victims of abuse by the US intelligence community who think that they have them.

But a GPS-tracking tooth with audio capabilities? Not only possible but also possible to have a real use: Tracking and watching CIA officers who work for the Directorate of Operations. Let’s think about it. The closest thing to whistleblowers we have in that regard are Valerie Plame and John Kiriakou, both of whom were kind of pushed out, and didn’t leave in the same kind of way that Edward Snowden did.

CIA did experiment with radioactive iodine in order, they said, to be able to tell someone who has been overseas really is the person who left. They feared Soviet doppelgangers.

Then there’s the possibility of simple telling covert field officers that such a device is what they have in their mouth 24/7. The mere thought of being watched can alter behavior. See for example the Raytheon blimbs over both Kabul and Aberdeen in this marvelous video:

Kirsten Johnson, “The Above,” Intercept/Field of Vision, 29 September 2015:

https://theintercept.com/fieldofvision/the-above

{I also love how that elderly Afghani talks exactly like a US Baptist, but that’s off-topic}.

Could be. Don’t know.

On the other less humorous topic of CIA/DoD poisoning its own citizens sometimes the truth smacks you in the face:

Emily Anne technology,”  Revealed: Army scientists secretly sprayed St Louis with ‘radioactive’ particles for YEARS to test chemical warfare technology,” DailyMail, 29 September 2012:

dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2210415/Revealed-Army-scientists-secretly-sprayed-St-Louis-radioactive-particles-YEARS-test-chemical-warfare-technology.html

In her research, she found that the greatest concentration of spraying in St Louis was at the Pruitt-Igoe public housing complex, which was home to 10,000 low income residents.  She said that 70 per cent of those residents were children under the age of 12.

‘There is a lot of evidence that shows people in St. Louis and the city, in particular minority communities, were subjected to military testing that was connected to a larger radiological weapons testing project.’

Which doesn’t persuade me on chemtrails even with blowing up hospitals. But is that just wishful thinking?

The Interrupted Democracy

“…I wondered fleetingly, if [the Hills’] interracial marriage might be involved in Mr. Hill’s disturbance.”

“Will plays no part whatever in hypnosis, and the belief that hypnotizability is a manifestation of a weak will is false. The factors which influence hypnotizability are the intelligence of the individual, his conscious willingness, and the unconscious resistance or submissiveness. The latter are not always manifest on the surface…”

A Brief on the Evolution of Assassination and Poisoning

Let us begin with the delivery mechanisms of our substances from the Cold War. There were two primary forms.

The first was up close and personal. In order to accomplish this, they hired stage magician John Mulholland under MKULTRA subprojects 4, 15 and 34.

See “Prick” for further background on that coming out of the Canadian McGill University lawsuit against the US and Canadian governments for human experimentation research.

The second we learned of from the Church/Tower hearings regarding the “M-1” device which attached to normal weapons and could fire micro-organisms or substances at targets in two ways, one of which would leave the target unaware that he or she had been fired upon at all. “Prick II.”

But what are we to put into our needle delivery devices? There’s the possibility of the over 140 drugs tested on human subjects under MKULTRA, ARTICHOKE, BLUEBIRD, etc. {though many of those were tested for interrogation and brainwashing purposes}:

MKOFTEN03

MKOFTEN04

And then there was MKOFTEN, with a few references to it in the Family Jewels:

MKOFTEN01

MKOFTEN02

You’ll note database references to both drug side-effects, in this case pharmaceuticals, as well psychological effects. CIA was compiling a playbook whereby evoking particular effects would be possible for a number of purposes.

But all or most of that has become irrelevant. Again, the 1999 FOIA document from the US Army on bio-effects of microwaves:

There is, however, a growing perception that microwave irradiation and exposure to low frequency fields can be involved in a wide range of biological interactions. Some investigators are even beginning to describe similarities between microwave irradiation and drugs regarding their effects on biological systems.

And you have your “drug” and your delivery system all rolled up into one. Various “modalities” can be used for a wide range of effects, some of which I documented here under the microwave section, and more recently here and especially here complete with a few examples of how it could have been used. Depression, anger, sleepiness, sleeplessness, confusion, and a lot more, including causing real disease by affecting the blood-brain barrier, can be invoked in a human being using a microwave weapon.

Since it is also nearly or completely untraceable it likewise becomes very, very attractive to the would-be assassin or psyop operative seeking to create a false consensus about a particular individual or group by embarrassing them publicly. Unchecked, this technology which the government has certainly shown ample interest in, is a threat to freedom, to a healthy republic, and human health in general.

And yet we cannot talk about it openly because of the implicit connection to “tinfoil hat.” We assume that there would be checks and balances, despite ample evidence that there are little or no checks and that things are incredibly unbalanced. We forget that any time the CIA commits a crime and it involves state secrets, the Department of Justice has a longstanding agreement not to prosecute.

[CIA General Counsel Lawrence] Houston stressed that deliberate exposure of the MK/ULTRA program by essentially offering it to the press would serve to placate the brewing feeding frenzy over so-called mind control projects, and would divert any investigative attempts into the multi-faceted Artichoke Project.

Houston additionally explained to Rumsfeld and Cheney that, along with the release of MK/ULTRA details to the media, the names of a few former CIA employees, such as Dr. Sidney Gottlieb, would also be released to the press. Incredibly, when the subject of possible federal prosecutions of CIA officials for capital crimes and felonies, such as murder and drug trafficking, came up in their discussion, Houston informed Rumsfeld and Cheney that there was little cause for concern.

Explained the Agency’s General Counsel, since early 1954, following the death of Army biochemist Frank Olson, a secret agreement between the CIA and the U.S. Department of Justice had been put in place whereby the violation of “criminal statutes” by CIA personnel would not result in Department of Justice prosecutions, if “highly classified and complex covert operations” were threatened with exposure. The agreement had been struck between Houston and Deputy Attorney General William P. Rogers in February 1954, not long after Frank Olson’s death, and still remained solidly in place.

Jeffrey Kaye and HP Albarelli Jr., “Cries From the Past: Torture’s Ugly Echoes,” Truthout, 23 May 2010:

truth-out.org/archive/component/k2/item/89725:cries-from-the-past-tortures-ugly-echoes

A reminder about what happened to Frank Olson. He witnessed MI6 testing deadly nerve toxins on UK soldiers and sought counseling with a CIA psychiatrist. Once the psychiatrist notified Gottlieb that one of his own had grown a conscience, Gottlieb arranged a secret meeting at which half the people were supposedly drugged with LSD, Olson included. It was later discovered that Olson may have been given something else, which resulted in a psychological breakdown. Once in NYC for further counseling, CIA had George Hunter White and “Pierre Lafitte” throw Olson out a window and sold the whole thing as a suicide.

And so it all festers, grows, leading us to the disturbing stasi-state of perpetual lies and warfare that we have today. How do we break out of this cycle? Someone has to step up.

As a bonus, you’ll note ‘drug trafficking’ bolded in the quote above along with murder, eg assassination. DEA, like FBI, is in the DoJ. Are poor white Southerners the next ‘market’ for Deep State’s drug running?

Holly Fletcher, “Overdose deaths reach ‘epidemic proportions’,” Tennessean, 28 September 2015:

tennessean.com/story/money/industries/health-care/2015/09/27/overdose-deaths-epidemic-tennessee/32557463/

And opioids are made from what?

AFP/Business Insider, “A record Afghan opium output has increased the supply of cheap heroin in the US,” 26 June 2015:

businessinsider.com/afp-record-afghan-opium-output-prompts-cheaper-us-heroin-supply-un-2015-6

Whether it’s prescription or ‘horse,’ Afghanistan is the gift that keeps on giving to the criminal elite.
