One Mystery Partly Solved

Primarily, I’m talking about this:

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

apnews.com/bbed1d7f6f1a4320a7e60abfdce67d4d

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

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

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

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

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

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

MOTIVE

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

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

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

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

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

METHOD

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

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

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

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

Senator SCHWEIKER. By what?

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

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

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

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

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

Mr. LAUBINGER. I think that is correct.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Senator SCHWEIKER. Thank you, Mr. Chairman.

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

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

Unabomber Denial

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

At least the rewrite involving the documentary is now explained.

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

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

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

BBD – Strange Bedfellows

It should be noted first and foremost that things are so bizarre and twisted that the rules don’t apply. For example, the enemy of my enemy is not necessarily my friend. Second, I enjoy looking at Eric Prince’s point of view about as much as I enjoy looking at Nixon’s, which is to say not at all.

But then there’s the truth, or at least what is probably so. And thus, this post. I cannot recall if I detailed some of this some other time, and am short on time for hunting it down. Probably did. As one might note, this experience informs quite a bit of my fiction writing.

1986. University. Being so closeted gay that sometimes I even fooled myself , I was in the middle of a separation from my wife and there was an infant son. A friend and fellow theater major was an on and off again Christian. When he was on, he was on.

One evening he was over consoling me due to what would the following year become my divorce. He was pushing me to pray with him. I considered doing so mostly to get him to stop pushing it so hard.

At that moment, a garbage bag, which was sitting in the middle of the nearby kitchen as it had for the preceding two days due to my lazy funk, opened up on its own. Three cans rolled out, one just after the other in what was almost 90 approximately 45 degrees of each other directionally.

We both laughed, I conceded, and for the next several years I wound up getting deeper into religion until such point that I didn’t feel entirely welcome as a gay person and it was clear that there was a lot of politicization going on where things like the Lewinsky scandal was concerned.

Of course I now believe Langley was responsible for this “miracle,” though it would be 23 years before I’d even guess that.

2001. 9/11. Eric Prince was poised to do the dirty work for CIA, including hunting down Al Qaeda in what was clearly an assassination program. Prince saw it, as many Americans did and still do if to a lesser degree, as an attack on Christianity by Muslims.

Pushed to the side was talk of CIA radicalizing Afghan {and Saudi, in order to deflect ire against the Saudi regime} youth via USAID education to repel the Russians. The program in Afghanistan alone started in 1979 with a $35M budget under Carter and was later expanded by Reagan to $350M.

2003, Prince’s wife dies of cancer. 2008, Prince’s 12 year old son Christian saves the life of his younger son Charlie. All of this, coupled with the prosperity it all brought, likely reinforced most of his biases. He becomes the boogeyman for CIA.

Which is exactly how they like it. Much as they manipulated Afghanis, they manipulated Eric Prince. As they used them to make the CIA relevant again after the fall of the Soviet Union, they use Prince as a useful tool to both continue the animosity between religious extremists and as a means of explaining why they are doing it.

Ultimately, it’s just greed. But religion has a way now and again of helping us to ignore that and to point to alternative explanations that disguise the true nature of the CIA and other organizations like FBI. In reality, they served millionaires, later billionaires, and now multinational corporations. Why people do what they do in service to that is merely how they get the job done, not the reason it gets done.

On the flip side, I expect Sam Harris’ situation, which I mentioned a few posts down, is similar. Yet he is an atheist. Let’s pause and think about that.

BBD – Veterans Affairs

Just learned that, as part of some initiative, the VA is asking veterans, like my dad, questions like the following:

“Do you want to kill someone?”

“Have you ever wanted to kill someone?”

“Do you think that the CIA is out to get you?”

And more.

Of course my father, whom CIA did not dose with LSD and probably a few to several other substances, ruin his long term relationship, ruin his career and finances, destroy his reputation and at least for a time his mind, make his dog so ill it had to be put to sleep and then try to convince him that they killed his grandmother the same way, and, since I haven’t mentioned it lately, burn down a friend’s apartment building with her and her father in it {see here in chapter 24 again, this time note 7} and then run a PSYOP on him utilizing olive oil in a truck tailpipe hours later, unsurprisingly answered in the negative to all those questions.

Let me save whoever some time and confirm that my mother, likewise, would answer negative to all those questions. Hell, I was two years or so into the harassment before I believed it.

Post-9/11 US intelligence community is as bad or worse than Cold War US intelligence community and not a single person went to prison for the excesses then. Why, then, is it so surprising that excesses and abuse continue?

BBD – What Dreams Are Made Of

Preambling One

Let me begin with what may have prompted this ill-advised act, though to be honest most of you aren’t likely to believe it anyway, so it’s a pretty safe thing to have done.

Yesterday included a tirade on the Twitter and the Macebook regarding the high likelihood that DoD is more likely running psychologically operations–made legal via the NDAA which Obama signed originally and gets renewed enthusiastically by Democrats and Teapublitarians alike every year–on the populace with regards to “UFO parts” than actually being in possession of parts of some advanced civilization’s technology. More likely, it’s an effort to convince us that there’s something to it, and therefore allow Congress to weaponize space and they can all get even more kickbacks than 9/11 cash cow provided.

Goodbye every one of your rights.

Or, maybe it was the side note where I suggested that perhaps New Atheist darling Sam Harris, when he works on his neuroscience and religion research projects, is likely working for CIA/DoD. He doesn’t seem to get that it was brainhacking that got us into this mess in the first place and that he is Johnny Come Lately to the let’s-fix-it-by-mucking-with-the-gray-matter party.

See especiallyWashington Post, “From U.S., the ABCs of Jihad.”

Preambling Two

The substance of this post is with regards to, possibly and probably, ultrasound non-lethal weapon technology. In order to get any of that, you should first see this SONY patent, which I rather rudely foisted on Barrett Brown earlier today, who is simply trying to play virtual video games without being ambushed by Trump’s non-virtual assassins.

I exaggerate. I joke. But only a little.

Ultrasound, assuming it wasn’t some rather effective hypnotic or subliminal suggestion designed to appear otherwise. Maybe they’re just trying to cajole the Chinese into solving some technical problem they’ve encountered that would make what I’m suggesting below impossible {such as through-the-wall ultrasound…don’t know how/if that’s doable}.

SONY Patent

For those who need some terminology, the cerebral cortex is the sensory and thinking part of your brain. Yes. “Data,” e.g., sight, sound, smell, etc., and perhaps even thoughts and ideas beamed right into your head.

The point: We are running out of time. We are already to the point that they can find someone to do whatever it is they want done. That’s bad enough. Waiting until they can get anyone to anything seems like suicide to me, but then all of this is hard to grasp for a layperson.

The Meat

Right. Sleeping. Having a nightmare. Don’t recall exactly what it was except I was, as in real life, in bed. Something was in the bed with me. I could not move nor open my eyes. Just about the time something wrapped around my neck and came closer behind me, I managed to move a leg, my upper body still frozen, and opened my eyes.

Then I saw what looked like a window, and there was a real window as well, but this one was much closer and was covered with frost. It was dark, of course. I asked myself where TF was I? It took some seconds before the fake window faded and I saw the real one.

The old nightmare within a nightmare trope. Fun times.

The “frost” kind of looked like ghosting when you stare at a bright light, but it covered most of my visual field in a squarish pattern. Possibly not ultrasound but lasers or something.

Who knows? In any case, I’ll let you in on a secret. There’s a small, perverse part of me that doesn’t want people to believe it. The misery-loves-company portion wants the worst to happen if only so I can say “Told you so.”

But then I also try to rise above that.

In any case, this would have been quite the unpleasant experience had I not already been through so many other unpleasant experiences previously. I can imagine it working nicely to convince someone else that there is no point in resisting. You might even convince them that resistance is futile. *

PS: Don’t try this at home. 😉

* See what I did there?

BBD – Miss Me?

Author’s Note: There might be a few editorials in the account below. As always in the rare instances when I am forced to do this, there are reasons for doing so and they don’t affect the point being made.

At work this past Sunday, I was starting my shift and in the middle of relieving a co-worker when a customer came up to the counter and asked if we had called Phoenix PD. We had not. I inquired as to why he asked.

It was because there were at least three patrol SUV’s blocking the parking lot, at least six officers in the parking lot and at the entrance, and some were armed with “rifles” {which I think were actually combat shotguns}.

My co-worker went out to inquire what was happening and was told to go back inside and to keep the customers in there as well. This continued for some 25-35 minutes at which point my co-worker called the non-emergency number and asked what was going on. Some customers were desirous to leave and we asked them not to.

The reply was that there was a report of someone with a rifle. It turned out that this was not the case, and I assume the person on the other end of the phone got the calls mixed up, but I’m not sure.

What had happened was there was a stolen car in the parking lot. The alleged car thief was in the store, though police apparently did not know that when they arrived.

And yet they behaved very much as if they did. Probably this is standard procedure. But there was something about how sure they seemed that he was that makes me wonder.

We eventually came out and asked them what was up. They questioned another man first, then the one who it seems was the one who stole the car. They wound up letting him go. He hung around the store for a while and then left.

Mere moments before the witness, the car salesman arrived, the thief walked away. Because at the time of questioning police could not confirm he was the one who stole the car, they had let him go.

The salesman identified him via a picture. A tow truck was arranged and everyone left.

Some hours later, now manning the store solo, I received a call from the salesman. He explained the method that the thief had used.

The thief had come to the lot with a car fob of the make that the lot sold. Pretending to be interested in buying a car, he got the fob for a match from the salesman, and when he started it up, backed it out a few feet and then pulled back into the spot, he switched the fobs.

He handed the bad fob to the salesman and then inquired about another vehicle, stating that he might go for lunch and then come back.

As soon as the salesman stepped toward the other vehicle, the thief hopped in the car and drove off.

What is not clear to me, much like the armed response, was how PPD knew where the car was, that is in our lot.

Then it occurred to me…while the method of theft was not on the genius level, it was somewhat sophisticated. It took some thought and guile.

And yet the thief just went to our store and parked it? Something was missing.

Some time after the call from the salesman, who had been concerned about the thief returning because they still had not found the key fob, a customer brought me the jacket that the thief had been wearing when I arrived to work but–and I had noticed–was not wearing when he departed.

In it, he said, was a .38. It turned out, I think, that it was actually a 380. When police finally came to get it, the officer removed the magazine and found one loaded in the chamber. He showed me the cartridge. It was similar to a hollow point but had some material filled in where the hollow portion was. I have forgotten what these are called,but I believe they were Hydra-Shok bullets; the purpose is that the rounds do similar damage to hollow points but stay in the body instead of passing through. Depending on how they are used, I am told that they can actually cause worse health complications than hollow points.

So there were the clues. Why steal a car, have a gun, and then just sit at my store?

I spoke to the manager this afternoon. The first time the manager had seen this guy, about a year ago, he had been talking to someone else in the parking lot about robbing the owner, who had stopped by to deliver what he thought was big money. It had actually just been a bunch of $1 bills, but he hadn’t noticed the denomination.

That was when it all fell together. He planned to rob the store and use the car for his getaway.

And yet, before I could really even start my shift, police were there blockading the building.

Now, lest you think PPD likes me or something, I really don’t think that’s it, just the day prior, Saturday, I had a retired NYPD officer, who said he had a brother or brother-in-law or similar in PPD, who on 24 November had placed a special order with a co-worker, play some silly PSYOP or mind games with me. He had promised me and my co-workers some PBA cards, which he stated–too jovially for someone in my position to take seriously–were “get out of jail free” cards.

I had heard of various stickers, decals, “deputy” badges, etc., that could reduce one’s odds of getting a speeding ticket. But a get out jail free card? I thought you had to be elected, have the last name Corp or Inc, or be a member of the terminally corrupt US intelligence community to carry one of those.

Anyway, he looked at his order, stated it was wrong, stated that one of the items was not something enough–even though it was the something-est thing on the market–and told me he’d be right back after grabbing a picture in his car of what he actually wanted.

He immediately started his vehicle and drove away. Precisely what the message of this nonsensical PSYOP–which began at the time he placed his order well before I gave that small donation to The Intercept last week–I just don’t know. It was very, very muddled.

Maybe it would have made more sense if they had, as they did in NYC, dope me with LSD first. Don’t know.

In any case, I’m laughing. But only so hard. There’s always a price to pay for that. And making a blog post like this one.

Still. “Curses! Foiled again!” is somehow on my brain. #lulz

And lastly, the fact that in this case, and several others, some of which I’ve blogged, some I have not, involved a POC was not lost on me. The post-WWII social program that lifted white families out of poverty but entrenched minority families in it, is something every American should be aware of.

Of course, even armed with that knowledge, one is not bulletproof. And that’s the rub.

Donald: Right for the Wrong Reasons

Like a broken clock twice a day…

Because somebody needs to sort this shit out. Also, I feel the need to clarify my reasons and separate them from Donald for disliking the US intelligence community.

First, Trump’s bashing of the CIA is disingenuous. One of his supporters is Peter Thiel, founder of Palantir, a private intelligence contractor, who wants to privatize the intelligence community. Second, of course, is Trump’s ties to Putin and Russia.

But this is in a very real sense a sad joke. The United States of America is nothing of the sort. It is a boundary inside which public-funded mercenaries with labels like the Department of Defense and Triple Canopy go about doing the dirty work for multinational corporations. That is all that it is. Notions of patriotism only appeal to a criminally ignorant public and brainwashed jarheads who think they serve a country instead of the corporate interests that they actually serve. This includes running and coordinating the world’s drug trade for foreign investors, such as can be seen in Honduras where Chinese, Japanese, EU and UK investors watch as US military bases support drug trafficking and surrogates {when it’s not direct military strikes and CIA doing it} murder the indigenous population who has been given the bad choices of becoming drug mule slaves or dying as frequent delivery planes take off from the property of a Honduran millionaire.

To say nothing of Afghanistan, where 2014 was the biggest poppy year in the history of the country and the trend continues. Off-the-books black bag ops have no shortage of funding sources today for CIA. Just imagine every intelligence community scandal in the past fifty years on steroids, and you’ll get the idea about what is happening behind the scenes.

Of recent note, Muckrock’s efforts have resulted in many new releases from CIA under FOIA. Of interest, COINTELPRO is now {more officially} known to have been a joint operation between CIA and FBI. This is important so that one can understand that while both agencies supported millionaires and then later billionaires in the past, they are now fully in the multinational corporation camp and consider the American people–and really people in general–to be the enemy.

A quick reference here again to a handful of people who, like myself, claim that behavioral modification means and methods were responsible for their “radicalization.” Of course, the only ones whose names get thrown about in the news are those who shoot people or blow something up. Not only as per the previous post’s Ft. Lauderdale shooter Esteban Santiago but there was both Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis and lesser known Myron May {both African-American} who made similar claims. Here’s a reminder what MKULTRA’s true purpose was according to the CIA itself:

MK-ULTRA’s purpose was “research and development of chemical, biological and radiological materials [for use] in clandestine operations to control human behavior.” The CIA hoped the “psychoactive chemicals” would work on the victim’s mind and emotions to “release him from the restraint of self-control.”

That was the 1950’s.

Our current dilemma’s stem from the 2001 National Intelligence Estimate. In it, the intelligence community cited the growing gap between the rich and poor as the US’ biggest 21st Century security threat. Naturally, this meant CIA and FBI would get to take the gloves off and enjoy near complete freedom via twisted legal memos allowing practically anything to be done as long as they follow spirit-of-the-law-illegal-but-letter-of-the-slimy-lawyer-memo-legal protocols. {See The Intercept‘s recent work on FBI’s loosening rules.}

9/11, which was almost certainly engineered the same or similar way as the Santiago, Alexis and May shootings, opened the door for this and the mass privatization which Trump is attempting to increase by destroying public education and privatizing national parks. Both things CIA in its heart of hearts would love to help accomplish. Whether or not there are individuals within any agency that oppose is irrelevant. They follow orders or simply choose to work on a different assignment. It still gets done, just by someone else.

Anyway, this nonsense about the intelligence community going after Trump is about getting the GOP party elites back in charge. It will make nearly no difference to anyone at all except for GOP party elites. They will still continue to use covert operations to attempt to turn public opinion against minorities, as they did with 9/11, the Gary Webb crack cocaine epidemic resulting in the creation of the term “Superpredator,” etc.

All of this underlines another point: Doesn’t seem to matter where you turn. There isn’t anyone in your corner when you’re the little guy. This is bad guys against bad guys. They will resolve it soon and be one big happy evil family.

Note also that CIA was silent when Nixon conspired to wreck US peace talks for election purposes and Americans actually died as a result–not one of those silly Internet scare-tactics, actually happened–so that Humphrey {backed by LBJ} wouldn’t be able to claim peace as a reason to vote for him and the Democrats.

Nor did CIA speak up when Reagan’s people cut a deal with the Iranians to hold American hostages longer for similar reasons against Carter. Another indicator that CIA is as full of shit as it always is and doesn’t care about the average American at all, even when they are in the military or foreign service in embassies. They just have a good narrative this time with the Russians cuz Cold War.

and Red Dawn.

…and Red Dawn.
