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…

…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.



The Mind Killers

Yet another {the previous find being related to the Blood-Brain Barrier} microwave bio-effects paper with inadvertent non-lethal weapon applications:

Martin L. Pall, “Microwave frequency electromagnetic fields (EMFs) produce widespread neuropsychiatric effects including depression,” 21 August 2015:

Much of it related to excessive calcium being a problem.
They even give it a name: “Microwave Syndrome.” Let’s review just a few people likely to have been victims of some kind of weapon based on this old and new research.

Rex Niles – Whistleblower for crimes of the military industrial complex turned poster boy for tinfoil hat:

Kim Murphy, “Figure in Kickbacks Alleges Bizarre Plot by U.S. to Kill Him,” Los Angeles Times, 17 April 1988:

Instead, he is living in a suburban home outside Los Angeles, sleeping under a makeshift foil tent fashioned to block the microwaves he believes are killing him. By night, he scrutinizes the heavens above his back yard for a sign of the mini-nuclear reactor that he says is generating the X-rays that pierce his skull.

Aaron Swartz – Showed statistically that legal decisions made by courts have been for decades becoming more and more against the public interest and in favor of multinational corporations. Committed suicide after another attempt to do similarly with what some in The Internet’s Own Boy claim was a second run at that with different, newer data. Note that this is even more obvious when you consider that JSTOR’s pay model prevents Joe Citizen reading about decisions being made that affect every aspect of his life.

Similarly, science and psychology papers aren’t always in public view and they often relate to how humans can be brainhacked. It’s all rather one, isn’t it?

Gary Webb – Showed that CIA was running drugs into the US in order to fund overseas operations. Also important to note that mostly African-American neighborhoods were targeted for sales of same including especially the very, very addictive crack cocaine.

Backing up a little, this helps to try to erase the fact that white veterans were given inexpensive housing after WWII while the VA and HUD denied black vets that same and other services that allowed white vets to send their kids to college and otherwise do things with their money that gave the illusion of having pulled themselves up by their own bootstraps. This was socialism, pure and simple, and also explains where the deception that war does a country good came from. The Deep State no longer requires bribing white Americans in order to operate; now it manipulates, frightens, intimidates, ruins anyone who questions its criminality. Mostly, it pits various groups against each other who would be better served working together for mutual benefits.

Donald Friedman whose FOIA requests lead to the Army giving up that it has interest in these NLWs and their applications.

There’s another whose name I’ve forgotten and for whom I’ve been unable to find a trace of on the Internet anymore. He was a US ambassador to Saudi Arabia. He blew the whistle on the fact that the House of Saud had slaves, most disturbingly child sex slaves, and that the US was well aware of this. He seemed to go quite crazy, IIRC. He had blog posts that started with what he had witnessed and then turned to a lot a religious talk. This reminded me of Stanley Milton Glickman who was dosed with LSD and perhaps something else by CIA officers in Paris.

If someone has a broken leg, do you become afraid of them? Not likely. Then why do we become afraid of people with sprained brains?

More on that in the post on Optimism Bias and the evolutionary human need for religion, if I ever get around to writing it. In the meantime, your moment of the erosion between reality and the coming dystopian nightmare:

Mugdha Variyar, “Saudi Arabia to head UN human rights panel; Twitterati criticise move citing beheadings, Raif Badawai flogging,” IB Times India Edition, 21 September 2015:

Who You Gonna Believe?

A considerable number of developments in the Myron May/FSU shooting case since my last whimsical post. First, I received an email stating that TI {targeted individual} group FFCHS {Freedom From Covert Harassment and Surveillance} was one of eight or ten recipients of packages from Myron. There was a conference phone call. I dialed in, listened to the three page cover letter being read verbatim. I hung up before the Q&A began.

First, you should know that Navy Yard Shooter Aaron Alexis also sent messages to FFCHS. He had stated that he believed that he was being targeted by ELF {extremely low frequency} weapons of some kind. FBI stated that that was not true but offered no other explanations.

The package to FFCHS was intercepted by US Postal Investigators before it arrived. They provided FFCHS, however, with the three-page suicide note. I took notes about its contents during the phone conference. Most of what I had to say about this can be found in the twitter thread beginning here:

Now, let’s move on to mainstream media coverage and then some notes about what I’ve learned during the past four years or so.

Levine, Mike and Meghan Keneally, “What We Know About the Packages Sent to Friends by FSU Shooter,” ABC News/Good Morning America, 21 November 2014:

Connor, Tracy, “FSU Shooter Myron May Left Message: ‘I Do Not Want to Die in Vain,’ ” NBC News, 21 November 2014:

First, this is very similar to what former President of Honduras Manuel Zelaya {see MICROWAVE section here}, US citizen Donald Friedman {here} and Gitmo detainee Shaker Aamer {here} all suggested was being done to them. Note that I fully believe it possible and/or probably that whatever it is also affects cognition or that additional means are applied to do that. Why? So that the targets do not seem credible when they complain. This is known as the Martha Mitchell effect, named after the spouse of a Watergate co-conspirator who was locked away, called mentally ill by Nixon administration officials to try to keep a lid on the bugging.

Next, while in Minneapolis, I found out that the police department as a matter of course asks people being processed two questions. “Do you believe it is possible for someone to project their voice into your head?” and “Do you believe that someone is projecting their voice into your head?”

If you are still behind on technological advances from fifty years ago in some cases, there’s more. There’s defense contractor Sierra Nevada Corp.’s MEDUSA {MOB EXCESS DETERRENT USING SILENT SOUND, see MEDUSA section here} system designed to do almost exactly what the Twin Cities PD is asking about. There’s RAND Corporation’s–most recently in the news because of James Risen’s torture/interrogation chapter about whistleblower Gerwehr in Pay Any Price–extensive history of research on this topic. There’s CIA’s many, many related projects, subprojects, spin-offs. There’s a whole slew of proven-to-exist technology, some based in part on the Frey effect–demonstrated in the 1970s.

The ramifications of this are wide, far-reaching, and deeply disturbing. One can imagine that even those who might steadfastly oppose such activities for political and financial gain to also be opposed to exposing it. What if we did this…do this…to terrorists? What if the reason that some places are so violent is because we are stirring it up so that we later have an excuse to fund war, programs, and go grab the resources of other sovereign nations at the same time? What if the Deep State is really this out of control and lacking in oversight?

What if?

Damned if you do and damned if you don’t. This is why all of the rational explanations, all of the calming, soothing speeches, all of the calls to take a studied, controlled approach, and all of the fighting of symptoms of our main problems are doomed to fail. Unless, until, and if we take the bull by the horns, stop being afraid of being called conspiracy theorists, encourage protection of whistleblowers in spite of bullying by our unbelievably corrupt government and its private partners, we will relive the same over and over again like the Twilight Zone or Groundhog Day. This is the crux, the cornerstone, the Achilles’ heel all rolled up into one.

One well-aimed journalistic shot and you can kneecap the planet. How much more of this are we going to take before we call it what it is? COINTELPRO and MKULTRA in blender with 21st Century spice added in.

How many more lies do we have to endure? How many more cover-ups? How much more deception from the so-called Department of Justice.

Barack Obama claimed that he saw his primary job as one of protecting the American people. Allowing these covert practices to continue on US soil is the opposite of that.

FFCHS’ ad in the 16 July 2013 edition of the Washington Post Express:

Gotta love the juxtaposition.

Friedman of Information

Players only love you when they’re playing

Before I get started, let me assure you that all parties involved know this stuff exists, know it works, and some of them even know who’s doing it to US citizens on US soil. About the kindest thing you can say about Secret Service in this context is, they probably aren’t the ones attempting to drive people crazy enough to, for example, shoot at the White House. But then more perverse things have happened and government rarely seems to act in what Joe Citizen thinks an intuitive manner.

Let’s also recall that DIA has been the subject of several news reports regarding targeting activist groups. We also know that various private NATSEC companies who work for the government also engage in that practice for other clients and, due to privilege not only go uninvestigated but those who come close to discovering the truth of that wind up in prison at the government’s behest. The Deep State truly is a melding of the two entity types. And of course the CIA and FBI do it. Goes without saying, needs no explanation. And as you’ll see, INSCOM, that’s Army intelligence, former employer of Chelsea Manning–who had her own issues before Cablegate–supplied the 1998 document that Friedman FOIA’d for. I’ll throw in NSA just for being so damn nosy and supplying their contractors with cash and everyone with data. Also-too, the two major political parties. Can’t leave those f—ers out, can we?

In essence, because it cannot be said often enough, these people are more about the fun cruelty provides for their multiple mental disorders and the financial benefits of screwing the 99%.

Additionally, you may want to review the Navy’s old round up of microwave bioeffects. The one Friedman obtained via FOIA is more specific but also limited to intended applications. For example, hair loss/brittleness and sparking fillings are not mentioned. Neither is the paranoia it can induce by disrupting brain functions. However, the disruption of bodily functions is, and how that leads to various health problems, which does essentially make it “murder lite” in that it doesn’t kill immediately, merely shortens your life. And how can you sue, even if you could still afford to after being so f—ed by these craven cowards that you can no longer work? This is the center, the crux of why the United States of America is a sham. This is how it treats it’s “dissidents,” people it just as soon weren’t around any longer.

Well, how it treats the ones it doesn’t obliterate.

Donald Friedman walked into a federal offices angry and likely a bit deranged. He was armed…with a letter. It was somewhat threatening, so, of course this offense wound him up at the mercy of the Attorney General. And woe unto him for that because his last name isn’t Corp or Inc.

On January 30, 2003, Donald Friedman walked into an FBI field office with a two-page letter signed by him and addressed to Special Agent Jack Murmylo of the United States Secret Service. Friedman’s letter states, in part:

“Agents of the U.S. Secret Service, as you already know, have been committing very serious crimes against me and other members of my family for a very long time, and I’m taking more direct action to prevent it from continuing.”

“I am going to get an admissible confession from at least one of your agents one way or the other, and if I don’t get what I am demanding from you today, I will use the method of torture described in the attached pages to obtain that confession and to punish the agent for his or her involvement in the illegal acts that your agents have perpetrated against me and my family.”

He claimed, as thousands of Americans do, and by the way people all over the planet, that he and his family were under attack via some kind of electronic weapons. For some reason, he decided it was a Secret Service agent or agents responsible.

The district court then held a competency hearing at which Friedman testified, inter alia, that the back of a pair of his shoes were vaporized by an electromagnetic weapon fired at his feet in 2001. Friedman presented the shoes in question to the district court, but it appeared to the court that the heel of the shoe had simply worn out due to ordinary use.

Precisely what happens to your judgment when you’ve been zapped or drugged by the intelligence community. The whole point is to render the target incapable of being taken seriously so that the torture can continue while everyone around the target behaves as though it is all in their head. Essentially, the Martha Mitchell effect.

Or even possible that they actually did use something akin to the research covered in MKULTRA subproject #143, which included various studies on sabotaging oil and petroleum products.

A portion of the harassment involves “magic tricks” that the target spends a lot of time–using an already severely disrupted brain–trying to figure out. As I noted, one day I received a perfect oval blister on one leg and was unsure if a laser or chemical spray had been used.

Convincing a judge that anyone would even bother to destroy shoes or similar, especially when you’ve been put through the grinder and become so confused that even you may not know why you were targeted any more, assuming you ever did, is the hard part. Secrecy begets corruption, corruption destroys the judicial system. As to why Friedman, I don’t know. Haven’t spoken to him or read his personal account.

Is this morally superior to shooting them in the back of the head and leaving them in a ditch? That at least has the virtue of not being cruel and unusual and being relatively merciful. But it’s not about mercy when it comes to the military-congressional-industrial-spook-retirement-fund complex. We only pretend we’re better than totalitarians. When this power is abused, it is not to protect anything but high crimes.

The case against Friedman:

FindLaw, “United States Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit: UNITED STATES of America, Plaintiff-Appellee, v. Donald FRIEDMAN, Defendant-Appellant, No. 03-10422,” 6 May 2004:

He didn’t give up, however, and managed to get a FOIA response from the Army two and a half years later:

INSCOM, “Bioeffects of Selected Non-Lethal Weapons, declassified 6 December 2006,” cover letter: Susan J. Butterfield, 13 December 2006/attached document: various sources, 17 February 1998:


This in turn lead to some articles on the subject and gaining confirmation that, yes the INSCOM document was genuine. Sierra Nevada Corp.’s/WaveBand’s MEDUSA gets a mention as well:

The New Scientist, “US Army toyed with telepathic ray gun,” David Hambling, 21 March 2008:

Steve Wright, a security expert at Leeds Metropolitan University, UK, warns that the technologies described could be used for torture. In 1998 the European Parliament passed a motion banning potentially dangerous incapacitating technologies that interfere with the human brain.

WIRED, “‘Telepathic Ray Guns’ and Vaporized Shoes: The Truth is Weirder Than You Think,” David Hambling, 24 March 2008:

WIRED, “Secret Directed-Energy Tech Protecting the President? (Updated),” David Hambling, 14 November 2008:

The story even made an appearance on eHow:

eHow, “Firearms Used by Presidential Bodyguards, p.4: High Tech Weapons of the Secret Service,” Ocean Malandra:

But Friedman is still in pursuit of what Secret Service was asked to provide. What’s interesting is whether or not the FOIA changes today * could have any impact on his case. The Secret Service delayed in part because it had to check with other government entities due to the sensitivity of energy weapons:

Plaintiff’s FOIA request is for document [sic] concerning directed energy technology that is very sensitive. Some of this documents [sic] pertain to research conducted by divisions within defendant agency that is used to carry out its mandate to protect very high government officials. In fact, in one case, the documents… could not be mailed but had to be hand carried interstate.

Government Printing Office, “UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, DONALD M. FRIEDMAN v. U.S. SECRET SERVICE,” 24 November 2008 and 15 February 2013:

I leave you with a quote from one of the WIRED articles…:

It’s very easy to poke fun at people like Friedman. On the other hand, it does show that if a nonlethal device ever was developed which could cause symptoms associated with madness, it would be completely deniable. The device would completely destroy the target’s credibility, neatly ensuring it remained covert. The military utility would be low, but it might be very hand for some three-letter agencies.

…and that pesky draft MKULTRA memo:

5 May 1955

A portion of the Research and Development Program of TSS/Chemical Division is devoted to the discovery of the following materials and methods:

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

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

9. Physical methods of producing shock and confusion over extended periods of time and capable of surreptitious use.
