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 – No Backbone {Updated}

Note: 28 December 2018 update at bottom of post.

This was one I really did not want to blog. In fact, I can’t find the blog post anyway to link it up for you. It was too crazy, and part of surviving this COINTELPRO / MHCHAOS bullshit is hanging on to whatever passes for sanity, self-respect and rehabilitating your reputation as a reliable witness to illegal activities while a very large, well-funded machine sees to it you cannot.

This time it really sucks because what I recall noting is that I had no idea how it was done. Now I do.

This probably requires some brief preamble. See, when you’re in the throes of active, frequent harassment from the shitty agencies who are not only destroying the middle class but also ensuring global fascism, you often only have short windows of opportunity to write coherently. If you aren’t interrupted over and over again, you’re distracted. If you aren’t distracted, you’ve lost your whole train of thought. You’re probably drugged with LSD and meth and who knows what else they are slipping you.

It is as though they have sentenced you to Bedlam, even though no other person can see or hear it…just you…making your reputation something of the past. As I’ve said before, drop a brick on your foot and try to do calculus. That’s what it’s like.

This process is sometimes referred to as the Martha Mitchell Effect, by the way. It’s depicted as a subplot in The Bourne Identity and is happening right now in France while a former Hewlett-Packard employee who complained of the exact same problems as the American and Canadian Cuban embassy folks, became an activist regarding nonlethal energy weapons, and now finds himself force-medicated and imprisoned for a car accident that he says never happened. He even said the police were mystified as to why there was no bumper damage at all considering the other woman claims he hit her. They arrested him anyway.

Ramola D, “Flagrant Miscarriage of Justice in Grenoble Court…,” EveryDayConcerned, 11 December 2018:

Flagrant Miscarriage of Justice in Grenoble’s Criminal Court as Judge Dismisses Facts, Upholds Wrongful Arrest and Fraudulent Psychiatry, and Shows Dangerous Bias in Criminal Entrapment & Extortion Case Against Human Rights Activist Frederic Laroche Whistleblowing on Non-Consensual Neuro-Experimentation

But I’m off topic.

While living in Michigan, probably 2012 or 2013 or so, I was home alone. After coming downstairs, walking from the stairs to the kitchen, my back suddenly gave out.

It wasn’t painful. It was like my muscles in my lower back had simply stopped working. I had time to lower myself to the floor while grabbing onto a table or a wall or something.

I laid there, looking up at the ceiling for really no more than 30 seconds. It felt as though I could get back up almost as soon as I laid down. But I did a quick inventory to try to figure out what it was. Did I feel dizzy? Not at all. Had there been muscle spasms or a misstep causing a loss of balance? No.

Reflecting back to the inability to, during the periods of extreme harassment, concentrate for long periods, despite having been aware of this document…

https://sigint.files.wordpress.com/2008/02/bioeffects_of_selected_non-lethal_weapons.pdf

…for years, I guess I only read the whole thing yesterday. Well, skimmed it. Probably something else important I missed as well.

But see this section:

Incapacitating Effect: Disruption of Neural Control

The nature of the incapacitation is a rhythmic-activity synchronization of brain neurons that disrupt normal cortical control of the corticospinal and corticobulbar pathways; this disrupts normal cortical control of the spinal motor neurons which control muscle contraction and body movements. Persons suffering from this condition lose voluntary control of their body. This synchronization may be accompanied by a sudden loss of consciousness and intense muscle spasms.

I had neither of those in the last sentence. I’ve certainly had intense muscle spasms, sometimes while blogging. I know, quite a strenuous activity.

But more seriously, that is a very, very common complaint from harassed individuals. I had usually chalked it up to stress and being distracted from drinking more water, liquids and therefore being dehydrated. But sometimes you gotta wonder.

Anyway, I got up and people returned from the store or wherever they had gone. Note that elsewhere in the document they state the range as being up to hundreds of meters for most of the effects discussed.

While I would not entirely dispute the experimentation theory here, that is government uses people who somehow they think pose a threat as guinea pigs, I would also mention again that CIA and DOD are known for switching around what they claim to be doing for bizarre, twisted and cruel legal purposes. That is, for example, force feeding food in detainees anuses because they refused to eat. There is no medical evidence that I’m aware of that this is beneficial; yet CIA claimed this torture was a medical procedure. Similarly, Defense Department sleep deprived Manning, waking at the time him up every five minutes, and called it suicide watch.

In essence, I’m having a hard time believing that something from a 1998 document declassified in 2006 really needed further testing in 2013. They were just being confusing and petty. In other words, typical.

28-Dec-2018 UPDATE: Occurred to me that I missed, and really have been missing for some time, an entire possibility both with this experience and many other instances that include experiences of other people: The “test drive.” That is, the government and the manufacturer are doing live testing for sales purposes, not research. They are showing off their non-lethal {though clearly this one is more for plausibly deniable assassination} weapons using anyone on the shitlist so that foreign intelligence services and corporate security divisions–the main potential buyers of such weapons–can have a live demonstration and they can mutter the same kinds of sales pitches that the MIC in Israel does when they use Palestine as their own private laboratory:

Rania Khalek, “Battle-tested, combat-approved. In other words, ‘This weapon has been used to terrorize #Palestinians’,” In the Now, 28 December 2018:

Too-long-didn’t-watch summary: Post-9/11 Israeli arms sales rose from $2B to $9B. Testing the weapons on Palestinians gives them a competitive edge.

BBD – Not Blogging It

Instead I’m doing the text versions of a montage followed by an impressionist {or some other movement} painting to describe yesterday’s “chance meetings”/diversion. I will start with relevant quotes that I find hilarious and throw together some memes.

The Bitter Sting of Tears

Or how PSYOP are actually used sometimes to influence artists.

Causally connectible

Yet nothing is invincible.

Sting was at one time self-identified as a Marxist. This was the result of having seen so much poverty on his trips around the world with Andy Summers and son and brother to CiA officers Stewart Copeland.

Similarly, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was a strong believer in science and reason. It wasn’t until after he killed off his world famous character that he started to dabble in the occult, the New Age-y stuff. While this is before CIA’s formation, let’s keep in mind that the UK government was likely even more prickly than the US is now in a lot of ways.

I’ve also written in the past about the PSYOP run on Alan Moore. You can see the post two down regarding the author of The Exorcist and why it was that book and movie really came to be.

Sting and his band mates went through some stuff between Zenyatta Mondatta and Spritis in the Material World. Sting began for some reason reading a lot Jung. As I noted on Twitter yesterday, between the weird nightmare around, suspect just after, the time the USSR early warning system went haywire and showed that the US had launched a first nuclear strike, as well as the weird prediction that something bad was going to happen to Michael Jackson some months before the Pepsi commercial accident in January 1984, I, too, became fascinated with the subjects of ESP, etc.

That came to an end when yet more PSYOP were run regarding less exotic Christian themes and I had my own divorce, as the members of The Police had between Spirits and Synchronicity.

Of course I’m still a fan of Sting. Whether he was used–he probably was–and how he was used doesn’t entirely matter. It’s just something to note. As one reviewer said about Dream of the Blue Turtles, the whole non-material stuff {“forever conditioned to believe that we can’t live, we can’t live here and be happy with less”} would be a lot easier to take from a non-millionaire.

There’s this from “They Dance Alone”:

Hey Mr. Pinochet

You’ve sown a bitter crop

It’s foreign money that supports you

One day the money’s going to stop

No wages for your torturers

No budget for your guns

Can you think of your own mother

Dancin’ with her invisible son

A good sentiment. And yet as we’ve seen ever since, even humanitarian crises are frequently leveraged for more warfare. They have games us, from every angle. We can see Democrats, who for years laughed and ridiculed Republicans for believing things demonstrably untrue now gobbling up and latching on to lies regarding chemical weapons attacks, and again a bizarre defense of Israel even when that country is performing what appears to be genocide. It’s damn strange.

Feel like I’m veering off here, but I wondered for a moment when I read that Hillary Clinton claimed her favorite book was The Bible if she hadn’t been brainhacked as well. Now, I’m fairly convinced of it, other things and complaints aside. The whole health issue looks more to me like remote torture than a naturally occurring problem as well. But how can I know for certain?

At any rate, I’m sure there are Americans who would approve of the Department of Defense, the CiA, and the FBi using subterfuge to decide what American thought and sentiment should be. But I’m also certain that if it were all opened up and exposed, that those people would be in the minority. It’s un-American. It’s, if you believe in Him, against God’s will to prevent people using the free will He gave them, such as it is.

And it is downright f***ing evil to kill and ruin people in the pursuit of what a few powerful figures think is God’s will and to try to foist that onto the rest of us. It has to stop.

The Fauxpocalypse is Nigh

Only the good die young.

You night recall my roundup of bad TV, or rather a few of them. There was one on fostering beliefs in things like space aliens, ghosts, etc. Then there was one in particular focused on the “end of days” scenarios.

You’ve probably heard the name William Peter Blatty {IMDB entry}. You might know from having written the book and the screenplay The Exorcist, and also The Ninth Confiiguration, which interestingly was one of my favorite films back when I was a Reaganite a thousand and seven years ago.

What you might not know comes from CounterSpy, the most hated-by-CiA in history magazine:

CounterSpy. “Examining The Exorcist,” Volume 1, Issue 4/5, 1973/1974:

https://altgov2.org/counterspy/

This is remarkable. The idea, if Americans accepted Christianity, they thought, then they would reject Socialism. Blatty, after working for CiA and heading up the US Air Force Psychological Warfare Division, wrote a book and made a movie literally designed to scare the hell out of people.

There have been many stories in this general area. The US Army’s “spiritual fitness test.” The airing of a straight porn film aboard a US Navy vessel in order to curb homosexual tendencies among the crew. Seymour Hersh’s assertion that seven or eight of the Joint Chiefs of Staff believed themselves to be the Knights of Malta or something similar.

If you haven’t done so, you may wish to subscribe to David Sirota’s podcast. A few casts back, he interviewed Tom Secker who co-wrote a book about the Department of Defense’s incredible influence over Hollywood, how a very large portion of blockbuster budget winds up coming from there or other departments, and how access to locations, equipment, and personnel as extras means veto power over even historical scripts. They can literally rewrite history because of the financial hold they have.

Moving on…

Mike Pence thinks God talks to him. Not the way many Christians do, through what happens or through their hearts, but he literally hears a voice in his head:

Hollis Evon Ramsey, “Is Mike Pence Chatting with Jesus, or is He Schizophrenic?”, Atheist Republic, 14 February 2014:

http://www.atheistrepublic.com/forums/atheist-hub/mike-pence-chatting-jesus-or-he-schizophrenic

Ted Cruz’s father believes that Ted is destined to be the American version of Mohammed bin Salman, the crown prince of the House of Saud, the monarchy that controls Saudi Arabia:

Bruce Wilson, “Ted Cruz’s Father Suggested His Son Is ‘Anointed’ to Bring About ‘End Time Transfer of Wealth,” Alternet, 17 October 2013:

https://www.alternet.org/speakeasy/brucewilson/ted-cruzs-father-suggested-his-son-anointed-bring-about-end-time-transfer

Of particular note: In Saudi Arabia, the House of Saud owns everything. Businessmen have to hope that they don’t become too successful or some third cousin or nephew and his entourage will swoop in and take it over. And then, of course, run it into the ground because like most monarchies, the House of Saud also has some inbred, deranged MFers.

There’s your “Sharia Law” nonsense.

As if this happy Addams Family and their delusions weren’t scary enough, enter earthquakes and lightning, a la the “Bad Moon Rising.” Once again:

Robert Friedman, “Earthquake Warfare: Preliminary Report On Pentagon’s Unthinkable Plans,” CounterSpy, Volume 3, Issue 2, 1975

Let me shorten it for you before you roll your eyes. It’s pretty much what we’ve been hearing about now, out of Iceland and elsewhere: Drill down to lava, add water, run. The resulting energy release causes the ground to shake.

Of course they used project names like SKYFIRE, STORMFURY, and PRIME ARGUS, which I assume was a typo since we know the top brass really likes their steak, especially in Saddam Hussein’s former palace while the soldiers are dying from thirst in the desert. Or maybe they really meant the giant with a hundred eyes or Odysseus’ faithful dog. Beats me. Some of these f***ers are even too crazy for me.

You’ll also note, not kidding, weather and hurricane control research. Of course, that’s just pie-in-the-sky thinking for your average wannabe deity:

Tibi Puiu, “Scientists control the path of lightning using lasers,” ZMEScience, 24 June 2015:

https://www.zmescience.com/science/physics/control-path-lightning-lasers-0543543/

Jacopo Prisco, “The man who wants to control the weather with lasers,” CNN, 7 March 2016:

https://www-m.cnn.com/2015/04/24/tech/laser-cloud-seeding-mci/index.html

This all boils down to a perfect storm of nuttiness. The temptation to use a weapon is always greater than the self-restraint, especially if the individuals in question also think God is their bestest pal.

Now, stop and think for one moment about the Mueller investigation. Who leaves? Who stays? Who gets a pay increase? Who gets their finger on the button?

I could go on and on about FBi’s weird obsession claiming that shutting down independent sex workers over and over, under both the Obama and Trump administrations is in no apparent way connected to human trafficking. But then that would be redundant with putting Mike “I Hear Ya General-Pretending-to-be-God” Pence in charge.

And even weirder, who is cheerleading this stuff? Same people who are obsessed with Israel no matter how much blood it gets on its hands.

Really, I thought that the Fauxpocalpyse Trilogy was hyper reality; not real but real taken to another degree. I see once again that I am too mild in my thinking and that reality is likely to overtake me in over-the-top and overrun me in time.

Good night and no-the-real-God-if-I-believed-in-Him bless.

Surveillance Abuse of the Thirteenth Kind

Remember this? Well, there’s been two studies since then. The first I’m ignoring because it basically said “we don’t know but everyone else was wrong and it’s not mass hysteria/delusion.”

The other, though.

Nora Gámez Torres, “Computer scientists may have solved the mystery behind the ‘sonic attacks’ in Cuba”, Miami Herald, 2 March 2018:

http://www.miamiherald.com/news/nation-world/world/americas/cuba/article203221919.html

Professor Kevin Fu and members of the Security and Privacy Research Group at the University of Michigan say they have an explanation for what could have happened in Havana: two sources of ultrasound — such as listening devices — placed too close together could generate interference and provoke the intense sounds described by the victims.

This is especially interesting because as I’ve noted before, the legal definition of torture requires intent. Now, prove that spies or counter-intelligence agents, who are already operating under extreme secrecy and typically illegally albeit with approval from above did or did not intend to place two or more devices in close proximity in order to harass the surveillance target. It’s wrapped in so many iron boxes that it’s practically impossible to penetrate and even when you could, there’s the “Golly, gee, we didn’t do it on purpose, Beav” excuse.

Similar to Manning’s harassment/brainwashing being called medical or suicide watch, these agencies have a long history of skewing definitions, playing with words so that they can break the law while pretending its all okay under secret legal papers we can’t view in the first place to judge the legality much less the intent of the law as written.

Anyway, this is why I tweeted it with a note to the State, Justice and Defense Departments’ OIGs and the ACLU. Shall I hold my breath for any resulting OIG reports being made public? Probably just the part that talks about mistakes being made. The rest will be covered in black ink.

And as a bonus, one mo’ time…here’s a short fiction piece I wrote in September of 2013:

“In Plain Sight”

“…Guess what it does.”

It only took him three seconds to respond.

“Offensive.”

“Yep. Every time we listen in, we are also attacking the same target.”

“With what?”

“Variable sound that appears to be designed to annoy. Imagine a persistent, low-grade headache that won’t go away. The more we keep our eye on them–”

“The more irritated the target we watch becomes. The more violent. The more likely to do or say something suspicious.”

“Yes.”

That’s because I didn’t need to be told. I just didn’t know precisely how it was done.

******

WWII Style ‘Mind Control’

It’s not what you think from the title. Ian Fleming apparently did want to use Aleister Crowley to write a horoscope for Rudolph Hess, longtime friend of Adolph Hitler, but used someone else instead, even though Crowley was interested:

Hess was told that on May 10, 1941 six planets in the sign of Taurus coincided with the full moon. [ix] It was apparently all the news Hess needed for him to fly to Scotland in a Messerschmitt 110, parachute onto land owned by Scottish farmer David Maclean, [x] be captured, and spend the rest of his life until his death in 1987 either in the Tower of London, on trail at Nuremberg, or in Spandau prison. Crowley was again considered as a go-between for British intelligence and Hess. An interview between Crowley and Hess was eventually rejected, though Crowley was eager to help. [xi] Hess would tell fellow inmate Albert Speer at Spandau that the idea to fly to Britain was inspired in him by supernatural forces that presented themselves in a dream, though the crux of the mission might have rested with Hitler desperately trying to reach some kind of peaceful terms with Great Britain before he attacked his foremost enemy, Stalin’s Russia.

Source.

If it did actually play a role, and it appears it did, merely that Hitler was looking for an opportunity and Hess found one, then why did it work? It worked because British intelligence knew about Hess and his belief in the supernatural and the occult.

By today’s standards, what would that mean? Intelligence gathered from mass surveillance could be used to work on various weaknesses of entire groups of people. Links to things like horoscopes {or UFO or ghost sightings or shows that depict various subcultures as inherently violent, criminal, whatever} could be propagated via social media. People with similar interests would see it and propagate it further.

This reminds one of the GCHQ documents from the Snowden haul showing various disciplines being used online to manipulate groups. It also reminds one of the US Department of Defense’s MINERVA Initiative, which sprang out of the financial crisis of 2008, in which they controlled the kinds of news people saw on Facebook and other social sites.

And it appears more busy than ever. Russia couldn’t hope to keep up any more than Al Qaeda could hope to do worse than we have done, are doing, to ourselves.

This has been your McCoyote Public Service Message. Best of luck. We will all need it.
