Op, Sussanah

I had a dream the other night, when everything was still; 
I thought I saw Susanna dear, a coming down the hill.

Ran across this piece over at a site I found recently, Anti-Media.

Sebastian Swift, “5 Confirmed False Flag Operations and How to Spot Them in the Future,” Anti-Media, 14 July 2015:

http://theantimedia.org/5-confirmed-false-flag-operations/

Of the five, four I am somewhat familiar with. GLADIO was the brainchild of the brother of James Bond creator and WWII military intelligence agent Ian Fleming. The idea was to embed covert operatives in order to repel and sabotage some future Soviet invasion in Europe. Much like the US’ Top Secret America today, it’s purpose never came and so they repurposed it. The Soviets didn’t come, so they undermined unions instead by connecting them in the public mind with communist terrorist organizations, which they ran. One historian claims that even the IRA was infiltrated and turned radical by NATO’s GLADIO at just the time that Ireland was gaining its independence peacefully. The crackdown on the IRA delayed that for decades.

Got that? IRA violence was false flag, even if some of those carrying it out had no idea that was the case.

Next is CIA’s/MI6’s AJAX. In an unbelievably frank admission, CIA lays claim to having tilted the Middle East away from freedom. See the link.

The article also covers FBI’s COINTELPRO. It is essentially talking about the quote from the Church/Tower report I have at top. That is, they paid informants to cause problems between civil rights groups to the point people might have murdered each other.

Then the Gulf of Tonkin Incident, which caused the Police Action War in Vietnam. There apparently weren’t even any North Vietnamese vessels in the area at the time.

The one I don’t recall hearing of is Mossad’s Operation SUSSANAH. It sounds a lot like the NORTHWOODS plan in that Mossad agents planted bombs in Egyptian, British, and American owned businesses and quasi-government facilities in the hopes to frame 8 Egyptians for it. The broader point, though, is again how these events alter politics:

However, the more far-reaching consequences of the Lavon Affair demonstrate once again how governments use false flags to achieve certain objectives that might not have been possible otherwise. In this case, according to a Stanford published paper, the operation triggered a chain reaction of game-changing events:

“A retaliatory military incursion by Israel into Gaza that killed 39 Egyptians; a subsequent Egyptian–Soviet arms deal that angered American and British leaders, who then withdrew previously pledged support for the building of the Aswan Dam; the announced nationalization of the Suez Canal by Nasser in retaliation for the withdrawn support; and the subsequent failed invasion of Egypt by Israel, France, and Britain in an attempt to topple Nasser. In the wake of that failed invasion, France expanded and accelerated its ongoing nuclear cooperation with Israel, which eventually enabled the Jewish state to build nuclear weapons.”

This is why the inclusion of PSYOPs on the American public within the past several NDAAs is disconcerting. This is why I believe those possible interpretations of events in the previous post are not only possible, they are likely.

There is an immense power grab going on, coming from several directions. That the government focuses its attention almost solely on the proxies and not the puppetmasters–many of whom are clearly inside it–is worrying. It implies that the big overthrow of the government that the government has been accusing so many people of, has already occurred.

Let’s Make a Suicide Bomber

…or “lone wolf” shooter. The way that the Bush and Obama administrations did/do it. Similat to he way NATO did when it took control of pretty much every terrorist  organization after WWII.

Jeff Kaye, “Gladio: A Conspiracy So Big That It Demands Your Attention {Take That Cass Sunstein!},” Public Record, 4 April 2010:

pubrecord.org/commentary/7333/gladio-conspiracy-demands-attention/

Though you might find similar techniques used by FBI informants in their sting operations for money, that typically–so far as we know thus far–requires the direct involvement of the informant as charismatic “cult leader.” What I’m referring to here is a “hands off” approach in which the target is mostly unaware of human involvement in his or her decision-making process.

The thing you have to do, perhaps after an initial period of using both positive and negative PSYOPs and other reinforcement/punishment methods {see, for example, item 11 of the 1955 draft MKULTRA memo linked at top}, is to concentrate solely on negative punishment. This is required so that the covert organization can get the target to the point that he or she buys into the notion that living is no longer worth the effort and yet angry and frustrated enough to take it out on whichever group, organization, or individual{s} the PSYOPs and general base psychology of the individual deems appropriate in their modified behavioral state.

In essence, the operation moves from an initial Operant Conditioning status {a “loosening up” and isolation phase} to an ABA one {the process of altering world view to an entirely negative one}.

One example may be Dylann Roof’s problems with his love life {see also David Attias and Elliot Rodger}. We can easily assume or accept that he was awkward and had social issues related to dealing with the opposite sex and therefore lost a potential girlfriend who happened to wind up with an African American. However, even if partially true, this is not an either/or situation. It is quite possible that part of it occurred naturally and the PSYOPs team capitalized on it, enhanced it, made certain that Roof was unable to think of much else for extended periods of time. Looking for a method of coping with potential psychological harassment techniques, he may also have been steered toward hate groups that openly, and news outlets that espouse, race-based hatred.

There is a double-standard applied to young people, as there often is to the poor, especially African-Americans. In the latter case, poor neighborhoods are bombarded with advertising and mass media indicating that everyone should want X, Y, and Z in order to have a “normal” life. At the same time, the means to achieve such a life are denied, often in absurdly shallow and cruel ways. So it is with youth and the incessant need to have “bae.” Our opportunistic overlords pay attention to these things and use our desire to be viewed as productive members of society worthy of being loved to their benefit.

…it seems quite probable that they altered conditioning designed to decrease unwanted behavior in patients to increasing it in targets of the intelligence community of the United States of America. I can see no other reason for consistent “punishment” type ops apart from driving an individual to a suicidal/homicidal state. Naturally, because we are talking about black ops, the events that occur on the surface must appear to have other causation, is, naturally occurring, online radicalization, “bad luck,” consequences of drug addiction and/or mental illness, etc. The clever liar, and this is perhaps the one thing the US need never worry about running short of, knows how to spin such stories and utilize narratives that we are already familiar with from mass media and to disguise what is not in reality the actions of an individual but rather the machinations of a political and largely for-profit/privatized extension of the military industrial complex.

If we are ever to wrest control of our lives away from warhawks and selfish privateers, we must first understand their methods and motivations. Corporate sociopathy combined with corruption of public officials has lead us to this point; only an open and courageous examination can restore sanity.

The APA has more shame yet to be revealed. History will show that this is close to what transpired. It is only a matter of time.

It should also be noted that political operatives can also be manipulated similarly and the two major political parties engage in similar black bag operations. Creating angry individuals who are radically loyal to one party or the other can be accomplished similarly.

Preface

There is nothing funny about assassination, torture, psychological harassment, the erosion of personal liberties, big brother surveillance, poverty, and fascism. However, due to the fact that these topics are so disturbing, I employ humor as a method of discussing them in order to allow the reader to get the facts without being so disturbed as to reject reading the message altogether. Additionally, it is not only acceptable, but I would argue the duty of the freedom and truth lover, to ridicule those who engage, order, carry out, excuse, and refuse to criticize these same acts and concepts.

Also, one may want to, if not already familiar with the series, check out the old BBC Connections series [1]. The historical trail this post attempts to take the reader along is more akin to Burke’s view of history than the standard one.

Also, this one is really long…

The Seven Seals of Doom

Draw all chalk arrows towards The Deep State.

I. The Revolving Door – no longer is merit based on performance towards goals of protecting American interests as the public has been led to view them but rather those of NATSEC and multinational corporations. Government employees create needs and then go out into the private sector and win bids for the need created inside. It’s an incestuous cycle that burns through tax dollars at an alarming and NATSEC threatening rate but receives no criticism from many so-called fiscal conservatives.

Perhaps not unrelated, political donations from many Top Secret America companies are considered classified and not subject to public scrutiny.

II. The Private NATSEC Corporation – besides the cycle described above, these companies have been known to target private citizens engaged in Constitutionally protected First Amendment activities as well as those seeking redress through the civil court system.

Then there is the general question of government responsibility and hiding in the private sector:

WaPo, “Massachusetts SWAT teams claim they’re private corporations, immune from open records laws,” Radley Balko, 26 July 2014:

washingtonpost.com/news/the-watch/wp/2014/06/26/massachusetts-swat-teams-claim-theyre-private-corporations-immune-from-open-records-laws/

III. Mission Creep – unable to support itself under the excuses for under which it was expanded, Top Secret America and the Department of Defense itself expanded their missions to include stifling dissent over financial crimes. This has been shown to include MINERVA, which grew out of the banking crisis, interestingly. Banks almost cripple world economy and DoD response is to create MINERVA targeting American people for manipulation. What’s wrong with this picture?

Programs and tools like those exposed by Edward Snowden and Jeremy Hammond/Barrett Brown present a large temptation for freedom-haters within government and the private sector. Tartan and Trapwire, for example, are the propagandist’s wet dream. These kinds of sockpuppet software packages make it possible to alter public perception by leveraging a few operatives to make them seem like an entire crowd, a majority.

Unfortunately, nearly all human beings over estimate their own intelligence and those of lower intelligence tend to over estimate theirs more. People believe that they are not susceptible to being manipulated, would know if it were being done to them.

IV. Surveillance, Propaganda, PSYOPs – these items, combined with the tools already mentioned above, make this manipulation easier. Even manipulation of NATSEC and law enforcement employees is accomplished, resulting in perhaps the rash of shootings we’ve seen, especially of homeless, mentally ill, and minorities. Radical opinions, whether ISIS, the Tea Party, or the Ferguson PD, did not appear out of thin air.

Some liberal media will go through long-winded cultural and social explanations for situations like that in Ferguson, Missouri, twisting their spines into pretzels, resulting in “magic bullet theories” designed to sound too complex for mere mortals to grasp.

Compete horseshit. It’s Deep State propaganda.

It should be noted that this is exactly what Cass Sunstein suggested should be done: to create a false picture of reality by creating conspiracy theories covertly and then to use the excuse that people hold anti-government views to take away rights and arrest those so manipulated.

V. Loss of Narrative Control – like the government, a large, overwhelming portion of the mainstream media caters to the Deep State, the multinational, and not to the interests of the average citizen. The narrative becomes “if you don’t give up your rights to let us protect you, you will die.” Fear becomes the reason, rational thought perishes before it and is short-circuited by images of boogeymen ravaging in our heads.

VI. Hypocrisy – The Military Industrial Complex, not just an American phenomenon, arms as many sides in all conflicts as possible and then owns politicians like Peter King of New York {see end of article}:

NYTimes, “In Washington, Second Thoughts On Arming Police,” Matt Apuzzo and Michael S. Schmidt, 23 August 2014:

nytimes.com/2014/08/24/us/in-washington-second-thoughts-on-arming-police.html

While on the other hand politicians decry use of these weapons and even people trained by NATO like ISIS and Al Qaeda. This is the biggest scam in human history I think, setting up villains and then knocking them down. Of course that’s been CIA’s primary occupation on the operations side since its inception.

This has created a situation where more chaos equals more profit combined with sectors wielding so much power that they can create it on a whim and win-win while everyone else loses-loses.

VII. Rise of the Psychopath – as above with corporate America, so below with the government and the intelligence community. Sociopaths. I have nothing against them personally, it is a human condition and cannot be helped any more than other personality traits.

But at least since the 1990s it has been reported that sociopaths now excel within large companies. It is in part a factor of being able to lay people off or dump toxic waste without remorse, but also the drive to do better than the previous fiscal year as a result of that being the requirement from Wall Street to see positive stock results. Interestingly, this has gone beyond the fiduciary responsibility of protecting stock holders and now corporate officers frequently defraud stock holders for their own, personal financial gain.

Insert Jurassic-Parking vampires back into existence metaphor here.

Additionally, corporations are people with protected “civil rights” and people are objects to be used, abused, exploited in turf wars between agencies and political parties. There is no moral high ground in any of these sectors being occupied. The scandal, the crime, is the covert civil war itself, not simply what the war is about.

Blow my Blues away

RIP Robin Williams. Besides the obvious, Williams was an activist. He was one of the few speaking out against Reaganomics when it was happening. “For every new millionaire,” he said, “seven or eight other people are going down the tubes,” or words to that effect.

No, no, no, no, no.

Yes. There is no Illuminati. There is a CIA, DIA, NATO, a host of contractors, Top Secret America, and a Deep State.

See again the mind affecting tech tab at top. We saw it with Aaron Swartz and others as I’ve suggested here many times. They tried it on me, many, many times which is why I’m not guessing–I know. I also appreciate that that does not qualify as proof for you. Best I can do without an insider whistleblower.

But prove it isn’t. Surveillance provides peoples’ medical information, therapy, purchases. The rest is providing plausible deniability. The only things I can see standing between most of us and acceptance is ignorance of history and methods {MINERVA, MKULTRA, etc.} and they “wouldn’t do that” {wishful thinking}.

And removing social forces and demoralizing humanitarians are not the only motives for driving people to suicide:

And how different is this from making a group of people you’ve had access to for decades fly planes into buildings? My comment here:

occupywallst.org/forum/debunking-911-myths/

Forget for a moment everything you’ve heard about conspiracy theories regarding 9/11. Like watching stage magic, it’s sometimes the “how could it be done?” that serves as impediment to accepting that maybe it was.

First, one needs to understand the post WWII history of the United States. There’s the stuff we are all familiar with, Eisenhower’s military-industrial-(Congressional) complex for example. The “Red Scare” served as fear motivator for spending and for civil rights abuses like COINTELPRO.

In addition, some American industrialists still resented the New Deal and considered it Communist. Fred Koch, father of Charles and David, cofounded The John Birch Society which considered anyone and anything who didn’t agree with its extreme oligarchy friendly views to likewise be Communist.

All of this served to create the foundation of what is now referred to as the Deep State. The Deep State is, at its core, an unholy alliance between the US intelligence community and Wall Street. There are numerous private contractors and estimates on how IC money is spent today suggests 70% of it is outsourced.

9/11, as NSA whistleblower Thomas Drake’s superior told him in 2001, was a gift to the IC. Fear again motivated and drove industry. The problem, of course, there simply aren’t enough terrorists and therefore work to keep the Top Secret America machine, which though it has had members such as Carlyle Group’s Booz Allen Hamilton since 1917, grew exponentially after 9/11.

Meanwhile, hardliners among the Joint Chiefs and the CIA, seeing the economic improvements of the 90s, saw that Americans were losing their stomach for war. Limited, typically airstrike, conflicts were all that the US public would tolerate. In their view, climate change and peak oil around the corner, that had to change.

Osama Bin Laden was, at least in 1987, a US-backed “freedom fighter” working against the Soviets in Afghanistan. This is especially important because the CIA has in the FAQ of their website a statement claiming that they never maintained a working relationship with him. Forgetting for a moment how they may have had attorneys define the words that they used, it’s a blatant falsehood. The events of the film, though altered for dramatic purposes, Charlie Wilson’s War, depict what should be common knowledge: the US trained and armed the mujaheddin as proxies against the Soviets for much of the 1980s.

In the 1990s, the Taliban visited the US, made contact with energy corporations, and sought to become the recognized governmental authority of Afghanistan. Clinton considered, but refused, we are told, because Hillary mentioned the Taliban’s abysmal human rights record especially where women are concerned. This refusal later resulted in a failed assassination attempt in Asia.

Now the history of the CIA. After WWII, when the OSS was transitioning to become the Agency, Nazis were brought over to aid the fight against Communism. They went to work in various places…rocket technology, propaganda at Voice of America:

thenation.com/blog/179057/seven-decades-nazi-collaboration-americas-dirty-little-ukraine-secret

…and at Fort Detrick on project MK/Ultra. In reality, MK/Ultra was several projects, that included things like “negro attitudes,” child personality development, mental illness, all sorts of drugs and substances, delivery methods of same, voting decisions, and lots more.

https://mccoyote.wordpress.com/mkultra/

Some of the more disturbing things that came out of this and similar programs took decades to see the light of day. There is still a great deal we don’t know. In 1995, some victims testified before Congress as related to human radiation experiments. It become clear that the programs that the US Senate assured us had ended in the 1960s continued much later.

Note that one subject, who was a young girl at the time, was used by Dr. Luther Wilson Greene to blackmail decision makers when he and his team feared that funding might dry up. This is one small glimpse into the power, the corruption, and audacity of some of the people we assume are subject to Congressional oversight.

While the results, from what I can tell…I have become an amateur historian on behavioral modification, were not what we might expect from watching Hollywood films, the obvious is true: if you are able to inflict enough pain on a person, you can generally get them to take some course of action that they normally would not. In addition, merely isolating and traumatizing a person–that alone!–can cause mental illness and hallucinations. Apparently, human beings did not evolve to live alone.

This entire body of knowledge from human experimentation that we still to this day don’t know the full story of.

What do we have so far? Motive: financial. And I haven’t even mentioned how Afghan heroin exports went from less than 200 tons a year to nearly 6,000 from 2001 to 2012. The Russians largely enjoyed profiting from it before 9/11, so you can get an idea why they’re a little sore at us, though according to one analyst at Boiling Frogs Post, NATO throws the Russians a piece of the action.

We also have psychological profile: they brought in and learned from actual Nazis and passed this “wisdom” down. Some of the things done are nearly unbelievable to most people, even as what happened at Auschwitz had been.

We have opportunity. The CIA, the Pentagon, and NATO itself, had access to people like Osama Bin Laden and other men who became leaders in All Qaeda.

That leaves weapon. Here’s where it gets confusing. Rather than explain it, I’ll just link you to a pair of articles regarding a technology that the FBI consulted with some Russian scientists on in 1993 when they sought solutions to the David Koresh/Branch Davidian/Waco standoff. Pay particular attention to how the CIA had been tracking Smirnov since the early 1980s. The US obviously had something similar. There’s more, but I’m attempting to keep this brief.

https://mccoyote.wordpress.com/apc/

https://mccoyote.wordpress.com/acpsycor2/

In addition, as the OP noted, Al Qaeda struck back in part due to the US’ own violent tendencies. This is, to the kinds of people orchestrate these false-flag operations, a feature, not a bug. The more trouble that they stir up, the more attention it gets, the more unquestioned tax dollars they steal. Part of behavioral modification is making existence so unbearable that desperation and emotion makes the target easier to manipulate.

As to who… The 9/11 Commission Report itself mentions the behavior of several senior officers. Among these, A.B. “Buzzy” Krongard. Again, I’ll let you read it for yourself. Also note that Buzzy’s brother was Inspector General at CIA and that he did not recuse himself.

http://historycommons.org/entity.jsp?entity=a.b._(_buzzy_)_krongard

In addition, both brothers were instrumental in getting Erik Prince’s Blackwater a no-bid contract:

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/11/17/us/17brothers.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0

Note that Prince is the son of a founder of the Religious Right movement. {Many of the aforementioned attitudes have historical precedents and get passed down generationally.}

Some may also recall that Cofer Black was Mitt Romney’s foreign policy expert during the 2012 campaign. Is it any wonder then he wanted to double the size of Gitmo?

Then there’s Graham Fuller, a CIA officer who worked, guess where, Afghanistan during the 1980s. Most interesting there, Fuller was married into the Boston Marathon bombers/Tsarnaev family for a time:

http://www.boilingfrogspost.com/2013/05/22/boston-and-the-cia-snafu-part-ii-cias-graham-fuller-a-deep-state-rogue/

Why might that be relevant?

http://reason.com/archives/2013/05/05/new-report-blows-the-lid-off-americas-re

In the news now, it becomes obvious that the CIA is falling on its sword for Bush and Cheney by taking full blame, or most of it, for torture. But see the difference just days before the Boston Marathon attack?

There is Deep State malfeasance happening around us all the time. It is disguised as accident or the oppositional actions of others by design. How to tell the difference is not easy.

Destructive? Yes. But what is destructive to the Deep State is good for America, the 99%, and Occupy.

A Message for ‘Janus’

And I hate that Goddamn Barzini.

This has nothing to do with the Hammonds that I am aware of. At least not directly.

This is directed at the field operative working for a United States of America entity who, possibly under the supervision of ‘Balding,’ planned and executed as a lead on the team to ruin my life. This is the person whom I refer to as ‘Janus.’ I use that name because on the day he came in to the deli and, utilizing whichever technology was used in addition to the street theater psychological operations, directed me to believe had some connection to Peter Watts, I think he was wearing one of those expensive masks. On the other occasion in which I saw him hiding outside and next door to investigative journalist Jeremy Scahill’s home, I don’t think that he was wearing it. Probably likewise on the other two occasions, the first when stealing my building’s garbage in November of 2008, and the other in February or so, after the two previously-mentioned appearances in January.

I think I’ve alluded to this before, but perhaps not so plainly, not so directly, and not recently. Much of the last three years plus I have dedicated to trying to convince you to blow the whistle on these kinds of domestic activities that violate pretty much every basic civil rights law on the books including the one I’ve mentioned many times: “Conspiracy Against Rights.” I suppose I did so in part due to the success in the brainwashing you and your team implemented. It was clearly successful and, if I still had a dog in this fight, my concern would be how that could be applied on a massive scale, resulting in a sort of demagogue. The self-fulfilling prophecy stuff I mentioned a few posts below. For me, that has become great fodder for writing fiction, but, really, I have so little stake in the outcome of all of this now–thanks in large part to you–that even that doesn’t really bother me. It will happen.

I imagine you view things similarly, except of course given just how much some of these people hated me–look at the lengths they’ve gone to–you were likely well rewarded for doing this and similar to other people who, like me, had simply been in the wrong place at the wrong time and the paranoid powers that be couldn’t see their way to taking the risk that their pre-9/11 much improved COINTELPRO-type  programs would be exposed. Hilarious, isn’t it? They are exposed now, but it hasn’t altered a single thing. While I can empathize with those who may have thought helping me along was a good idea on principle, it was foolhardy at a minimum. How could you possibly expect to expose programs that manipulate people, when the point is you can manipulate people? The very crime being exposed is the very thing protecting it from exposure.

Crazy Little Ship of Fools, indeed.

Speaking of which, another chance to alienate those few shaky allies I may have, it gets tiresome seeing the hope pinned upon, for example, the recent testimony of former NSA employees in Germany. Yes, it’s an important issue and I’m happy that they did it, but with an exception or two, what was discussed has been going on a lot longer, and even if NSA were magically put back in the bottle, there still would be the kinds of operations such as you and your team executed upon me, my friends, family, and co-workers. I saw it in 1989 and after. I saw evidence of it from 1988. I have since read that others first had it happen to them five or so years before that.

So, we both understand that, like the laws that keep getting passed, 9/11 was an excuse after the fact. We also know that NSA is not going to stop; all they have to do is scare everyone and opinion is again swayed. The MINERVA type programs probably don’t even originate with Obama advisor Cass Sunstein, though clearly the Obama administration was fine with provoking US citizens to the brink of violence and then swooping down and arresting or shooting them, as whim dictates.

We also know what would happen to you, or a set of things that could happen to you, should you decide to blow the whistle. Really, we know a set of possible things that could happen. Yeah, they might really murder you. Or, make you so crazy that you’d be discredited and these programs that prove that what the United States claims it is an advocate for is a whole and complete sham would remain out of scrutiny.

Between the absolute impossibility that people would believe it even when presented with evidence and the prospect of sacrificing yourself for a bunch of people this naive, I reverse my position, and say don’t do it. It’s not worth the trouble. People are arrogant, petty, and exceedingly ignorant and get the government that they deserve. If there were ever an overblown, extreme causer of world misery, it is this country. Like Obama, the interrogators and scientists turned torturers, select members of Congress, and people like you, being the sole superpower has corrupted the psychology of the country as a whole. This only made mass manipulation easier.

It’s just not worth it. While, yes, there might be some other way to, as a friend put it on the phone recently, “save the world,” this is the only one that I would seem to have any influence over.

And it hardly seems worth saving. The truth is so far from the world view of even those who should know better…

Well, what would happen? The vast majority of people would not even hear about it. Just like all they see is a few seconds of Diane Sawyer or CNN of things blowing up and, rather than those who have control, blame the almost powerless because that’s what they’ve been taught. It’s like always blaming the victims of rape or police brutality, or assuming someone who is accused of a crime must be guilty because why would there be a trial if they weren’t?

Yeah, we’re a wonderful species. 🙂

Then, those who did hear would be split up into camps.

One camp would support you in word. Within that camp would be a subset of people who could actually help you. Of that subset, only a very few actually would. Not really a great motivator.

I thought about ending this post with something about not letting our paths cross again and I should, by rights, at least want to hunt you down and murder you. What you did was beyond cruel and you know it.

But you don’t care. You don’t care any more than our politicians do. And that was the lesson. Thanks for that. There is a certain comfort in knowing that you understand how things are, even if you don’t much like the answer.

And we both know that I wouldn’t do it. That said, I’d prefer not to ever see you again. Expect in your line of work, you would as well. Serendipity.

I will, of course, continue to fight. I can’t seem to get the message across that a) I don’t have any desire to murder other people, b) I don’t want to kill myself either, and c) I even more so have no desire to join your little merry band of psychopaths or anyone else’s. I just don’t. Standing on principle? Stubbornness? Don’t know. Guess I don’t like rewarding shitbaggery. And I think either Russia or China (or possibly ours pretending) finally made a move.

Just.Not.Interested.

It is a proxy war, and you are a proxy, a pawn. Maybe you’ll get to be a real player, but I expect you’ll find that there’s always a bigger fish and you won’t ever escape the strings, the hold, the chains…however it is you think of it. It’s just a different game of the same on that level.

I guess the other reason I’ve done all of this is so I know that I tried and am therefore absolved of persecution from my own internal guilt mechanism. I warned them. Dumbasses won’t listen, won’t learn. What else can you do? You can’t even convince people who know there’s something really wrong…they just rationalize it away. It’s like magic.

Well, there’s Clarke’s Third Law.

The American Civil War certainly happened with the help of newspapers. And yet, as people did then and always will, we overestimate our own smarts and abilities. “I can’t be tricked.” “I can’t be hypnotized.”

I mean, W. R. Hearst managed to PSYOP the entire country into illegalizing marijuana, and still we will blame Mexicans for drug violence.

The Lindberghs did such a good job in the papers that they probably got the wrong people convicted.

As noted below, Cheney got that “liberal” New York Times to lie so he could, and we are constantly bombarded with Islamophobic messages. So much so that a fascist, paranoid FBI agent’s assertion that we are at war with Islam is actually more honest than Lindsey Graham’s qualification of “radical.”

And yet we think we see the truth. In simply considering what the majority of messages we receive say, we accept them by sheer number as the truth.

Seems like that was the basis for “The Big Lie.” But those people on TV seem so sincere, sound so knowledgeable, are talking to our leaders and why would they lie to us?

We think MINERVA is “research,” and not the test that it was. Damn, we’re asking to get screwed, practically begging for it.

The Age of the Multinational has come and brought with it the Age of the Psychopath.

And that’s cool and all. But could you do one favor and ask them to stop trying to recruit me?

Really.

And So It Came To Pass

When I wrote The Wisp, a story involving privatization of the intelligence community and warfare, I had thought that I was gazing down the road ten years or so. It wasn’t until the WaPo exposé Top Secret America that I realized it had already happened mostly in 2004 and 2005.

Twenty-two months ago or so, I started a “Fauxpocalypse” novel entitled Infernis. The idea behind the fake end times term, self-fulfilling prophecy can be as dangerous as, in my opinion perhaps moreso, than the supernatural. For the unfinished novel, a system that absorbs too much of those beliefs is susceptible to the same delusional thinking. Think HAL 9000 meets War Games.

Then, about 10 and a half months ago, started the sequel, Inthrallis. This one is in part based on experiences with some of those items listed in that old 1955 draft CIA MKULTRA memorandum:

11. Substances which will produce “pure” euphoria with no subsequent let-down.

12. Substances which alter personality structure in such a way that the tendency of the recipient to become dependent upon another person is enhanced.

I may expound on that later, but as I’ve noted below, the scope of the project quickly grew and before 1960 they were looking at what makes us decide to vote, child personality development, mental illness, minorities, criminals, hypnotism, means of control and altering personality, etc.

August of last year was before the MINERVA stuff made it into the news. It’s apparently gotten a nickname now, “FBULTRA,” which I think is appropriate.

The theme of Inthallis is similar in that it still circles around self-fulfilling prophecy but this time it’s a sort of anti-Christ figure. Superstition as crowd-control and flimflam predates even Judaism, so it should not be taken as an attack against religion as a whole.

Superstition and inquistion-lite are making big comebacks.

Witch Hunts:

NYTimes OpEd, “The Persecution of Witches, 21st-Century Style,” Motch Horowitz, 5 July 2014:

In some communities, it is chiefly young men who take on the role of witch hunters, suggesting that they may see it as a way to earn prestige by cleansing undesirables and enforcing social mores. That many of the self-appointed witch hunters are men highlights another baleful aspect of the phenomenon: The majority of victims are women. The Rev. Jack Urame of the Melanesian Institute, a Papua New Guinean human rights agency, estimates that witchcraft-related violence there is directed 5 to 1 against women, suggesting that witchcraft accusations are used to cloak gender-based violence.

Another factor, particularly in Central Africa and its diaspora communities, is the advent of revivalist churches, in which self-styled pastor-prophets rail against witchery and demon possession. They often claim to specialize in the casting out of evil spirits, sometimes charging for the service. Many of those congregations have emerged from Western evangelizing efforts.

Globalization means that paranoia over black magic and spirit possession are no longer confined to developing nations. Mass migration has made this a pervasive problem. In January, a Queens, N.Y., man was arrested for beating to death with a hammer his girlfriend, Estrella Castaneda, 56, and her daughter, Lina Castaneda, 25; Carlos Alberto Amarillo told the police that the women were “witches,” who had been “performing voodoo and casting spells” on him.

There’s lots more. Our ally and assistant chief shaper of foreign policy, Saudi Arabia, for example, and the UK.

The problem, the Ukraine’s neonazi movement is not Russia’s doing, but rather the US and NATO:

“The flowering of democracy” in Ukraine –to use the words of the New York Times– is endorsed by Republicans and Democrats. It’s a bipartisan project. Lest we forget, Senator John McCain is a firm supporter and friend of Neo Nazi Svoboda leader Oleh Tyahnybok (Image right).

I really am starting to wonder about that brain injury–attributed to a fall–that Karl Rove has been accusing Hillary of having. I know, consider the source…but have some problems squaring Obama and Clinton on so many issues these days without resorting to the mind affecting tech and/or intimidation hypotheses.
