Pursuance Project

Just listened to a podcast/radio show with Ken Webster Jr. interviewing Barrett Brown. For those who don’t know, Barrett and a number of other individuals have started an online collaborative system known as the Pursuance Project. You can read more about Pursuance Project in Barrett’s article over at VICE:

Got a few things I wanted to touch on. This first was going to be a post unto itself, but I decided to shorten it.

Ken notes that people frequently ask him why he supports people like Barrett Brown, Edward Snowden, etc. He has his response which he says usually resolves the situation quickly.

I note that Marvel and other superhero films are extremely popular and do well at the box office. I note that our obsession with heroes is interesting given that we as a whole don’t, as a country, support people who actually go up against corruption and power, and that this doesn’t entirely make sense.

There’s a whole thing with Alan Moore, where he states that superhero culture is inhibiting adult males in the US from “growing up.” I kind of agree, though I would take it in a direction he might not agree with. That’s the short version.

Other topics in the show included, for example, Alex Jones.

ALEX JONES

Please allow me to capsulize the situation as I understand and recall it.

Jones came out and proved that there was an employee at STRATFOR named Alex Jones and that they were two separate people. This was true as far as I know. It worked great to defend from accusations of working for STRATFOR and/or the Military-Intelligence-Industrial-Complex.

However, there was more that he did not address. First, in its early stages his website{s} shared an IP address with STRATFOR dot com. I believe this information came via a Hammond hack.

Second, Jones hired two people from STRATFOR to work for him.

Third, Jones was a STRATFOR subscriber (and may have had an email address as well as the Alex E. Jones who worked there}.

While it was Obama advisor Cass Sunstein who suggested “cognitive infiltration” be used against the American people {Glenn Greenwald has reported on this}, it appears as if this is what Jones and whoever was/is pulling his strings was already up to. As Ken notes in the show, he’ll sometimes hear something and agree with it only to hear something incredibly stupid mere moments later. Jones conflates real corruption with conspiratorial fantasy and the result is one of the many D’s that the intelligence community is so fond of, in this case Degraded capacity to make informed decisions and organize.

BOB WOODWARD

This is a bit similar to Bob Woodward, whose position is not hard to figure out as Chris Matthews once suggested on Real Time with Bill Maher. Woodward has been and still is a Pentagon shill.

How can this be? Didn’t he report on Watergate?

Yes. Mere months before that he was the liaison between a Navy Admiral and the White House. The same Navy Admiral, by the way, who was spying on the White House in what became known as the “Radford Affair.”

Why? Despite Nixon’s paranoia, which was probably only enhanced after being dosed with LSD on the way to Moscow to begin discussions on reducing nuclear arms, along with most of the passengers on Air Force One, he was fairly moderate when it came to biological and chemical weapons as well.

Making it brief again, when the Nixon order to remove all chemical weapon stockpiles came down, CIA considered its store of extremely potent and lethal fish toxin to be biological. When the order came down to destroy stockpiles of biological weapons as well, they considered the very same to be chemical.

The testimony from that appears in the the hearings that took place on assassination and the rights of Americans where the intelligence community is concerned in the 70s.

Nixon was too moderate for the military industrial complex. His own paranoia got the better of him, but let’s ask ourselves if NSA spying isn’t actually a bigger problem than one hotel and then ask ourselves why there were no resignations on the part of George W. Bush or Barrack Obama.

Power that is now in the hands of Donald J. Trump, by the way.

At any rate, there’s MOCKINGBIRD, which everyone should be familiar with in which various reporters were actually working for CIA spreading misinformation, as well as Intercept reporting on a Los Angeles Times reporter whose main editor was CIA.

To bring it back around, these are just a few of the kinds of reasons we need the Pursuance Project. Check it out.

MKBURN

New to me CIA chemical program called MK-BURN via investigative journalist Jack Anderson in 1982.

Also note the following quote from the MK-ULTRA prison drug experiment lawsuit:

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.”

Jack Anderson, “Lawsuit Forces CIA Confession on MK-ULTRA,” Washington Post, 28 August 1982:

See also Mental Floss on the release of “useful” documentation like UFOs and supernatural under STARGATE.

Kirstin Fawcett, “CIA Publishes Nearly 13 Million Declassified Records Online,” Mental Floss, 18 January 2017.

… There’s even information on alleged UFO sightings and psychic research conducted under the organization’s “Star Gate” program.

For security purposes, many of the documents contain redactions, but aside from that, “none of this is cherry-picked,” CIA spokeswoman Heather Fritz Horniak told CNN.

Lol.
