Pre-BBD – Skipping to the End

{Note: The title is a bit cryptic. And maybe it has a second or third meaning. I’m not sure, I’m just writing this. Please bear with me anyway. Sometimes you can see the narrative coming, if only roughly, before it unfolds.}


As folks have probably noticed, I tend to focus on things like shootings and other acts of violence. This is in part because it would seem logical that the possibility of proxy-mass murder may get people to consider that such a problem, should it exist {it does}, is also their problem.

However, on occasion I have focused on other possible uses for “brainhacking” {my preferred term to mind control which sounds cartoony and conveys the idea of a remote control, an image that is not so far as I know at all accurate; there’s also behavioral modification, but that is a mouthful and kind of implies permanence whereas I’m talking a minute here or there}. For example, though if true that there was some outside influence involved it is kind of funny in a sad, sick kind of way, that Clint Eastwood talking to himself at his table on live television at a Romney event might have been the result of brainhacking. A lot of it is about distracting the target, getting them into a mental state where they lose track of what is happening around them.

Not, however, that they are in some alternate personality that has no knowledge or awareness of what else the body gets up to as you might read elsewhere or hear coming from Rosanne regarding MONARCH. {Speaking of whom, though I have many issues with her, it is odd to me how pleasant she can be and her concern for LGBTQA issues is not completely wiped away with her other “issues”}. No, it’s more like daydreaming.

Other personal examples included when, the day after having my iPhone pickpocketed just before planning to leave for Port Huron and the Squidgate trial. When I went to the phone store to report that it was gone, the guy behind the counter…I wouldn’t say was having a brain fart…more like brain constipation. I repeated what happened a few times and waited until he confirmed that it was reported stolen. Months later I got an angry email from a former employer stating that it was still on and in use.

Another funny/not-funny example, after the Squidgate trial, when I was trying to get out of Port Huron and make my way Brooklyn-bound, I forgot my PIN for my debit card. Yeah, despite the Roma man taking all my cash and my iPhone, he left me my cards and ID. Imagine that.

It was probably twenty minutes before I remembered a number I used frequently, probably earlier that day or the day before. Was this just due to normal distraction? Maybe, maybe not.

And then, backing up a few months there was that goofy, dumbfounded look on that NYPD detective who was giving me grief about parking my dogs outside my friend’s deli. Clearly, when he looked at the dogs the second time after giving me lip, he saw something different than what he thought he had seen before entering the store.

So, whatever it is, probably something as simple as a some sort of voice-to-skull device, known to exist because the US Army said so, I am a believer. What its limitations and capabilities are, I don’t really have any idea.


On 8 September 2011, just three days before the tenth anniversary of 9/11, there was a power outage that affected parts of Arizona, California, and nothern Mexico. It turned out, we are told, to be the mistake of an employee compounded by corrections based on inaccurate information by others. In essense, the employee erroneously severed a cable connecting Arizona to California. The techs attempting to fix the problem in some control room flipped a switch thinking they were upping the power to deal with some fault and instead over-powered the only portion of the grid that there were still physically attached to. Something like that anyway. The report is technical and includes some abbreviations and acronyms I’m not familiar with and I don’t really understand quite how power works on that scale anyway.


Shortselling is when you put in buys for a stock “on margin” but you don’t buy them until after you sell them at a higher price, if the price goes down. If the price goes up, the shortseller is stuck paying the difference. If the price goes down, they can make a lot of money quickly because the difference between what they paid after selling it higher is pure profit or nearly so.

Don’t want to take up a bunch of space here on this, but it is worth noting that one of the several CIA officers recommended to the Professional Review Board by others due to negligence on 9/11 and for their role in creating the torture program was embarrassed when airline stocks were shorted on 9/11 from his former trading company {and elsewhere; FBI claims the trades were done in such a way they could not all be traced back and it appears someone left them there after realizing it might attract attention}.


Imagine if you knew that the power company was going to have a bad day or three beforehand. Imagine if you knew because you paid an intelligence contracting company or independent contractor to make sure that that worker made that mistake. That’s pretty much it. You can put in for your puts whenever, wait for the news to hit as something as newsworthy as large swaths of states being without power in one of the hottest weeks of the year would tend to be. Then, you do your stock magic, and, whammo, you’ve got yourself a new small fortune to go with the one you already have. People are without power, you have harmed shareholders and a company, and–who knows?–maybe struck a blow for Big Coal at the same time.

Brainhacking: It’s going to be bigger than ISIS magical online spells that turn the unsuspecting into radical terrorists. Or maybe something like that.


Yeah, so is there really anything substantial that could be garnered by actually going wherever and finding out first hand? OK, they aren’t coal and do some solar, but still. Think I’d rather live in a Punk House if I didn’t also have an inkling about how that would turn out for someone like me. If you’re going to be a miserable disposable toilet paper non-person for the rest of your foreseeable life anyway, how much does the cage matter?


Why ‘False-Flag’ Lone Wolf is Obvious and Useful

Note: The purpose of this post is to describe why and to some extent how this phenomenon is being used as cover by organizations in order to prevent detection. I am not assessing the validity, legality, practicality, or value of surveillance of anyone. Rather, the point is that simply because the main factors associated with organizations don’t appear to exist does not mean that they don’t, merely that they are not in familiar forms.

The disadvantage to law enforcement and counter-terrorism in preventing so-called lone wolf terror acts and shootings, etc. is that they have none of the following:

• Leadership
• Membership
• Financing
• Communication

These are the attributes that allow law enforcement to detect terrorists and criminals in general when they operate in groups. When a crime is committed by a single person and they don’t communicate it to anyone else or have money to trace from suspicious sources beforehand, it becomes harder to detect and predict.

How much more difficult to prove leadership when the assailant is unaware that he has any? How much more complicated when he or she is unaware that the “bad luck” that they experienced, resulting in the irrational belief that the world is out to get them, was the result of covert psychological operations, harassment, misdirection, trickery, perhaps even the surreptitious administration of substances that can affect judgment and character as well as remote hypnotic suggestion such as is possible via the Frey effect and voice-to-skull or subliminally via other sound devices using the Russian acoustic psycho-correction? {For a classic case, see Lois Lang in the Shooters tab above.}

I have been wondering precisely how specific the ability to arrange events and make them seem other than they are is. Many times I have found myself in strange coincidences, at the same place at the same time as another person or event. I became a true believer in the ability to do that. The idea, then, that getting a person to a location at a given time seemed possible. Applications of that ability, it occurred to me, might include making sure an “undesirable” is on a particular doomed flight or in a café where a suicide bomber plans to detonate. Simple enough. You think you’re there for your own reasons and don’t realize that you and perhaps whoever invited and encouraged you to go there, be there may have had the idea planted in their heads. A bomb isn’t likely to miss, and a crashing airplane isn’t easy to survive.

But a few nights ago, I saw this:

Peter Stein, “Tributes pour in for journalist killed in Southeast Washington shooting,” Washington Post, 29 May 2015:

Charnice Milton had Asperger’s and a lifelong stutter that slowed her speech. She wasn’t the person you’d immediately expect asking the tough questions at community meetings or publicly challenging how local government officials spend their money.

But at 27, she was a contributing reporter for Capital Community News in the District and had already garnered a reputation for doing just that.

Milton was fatally shot Wednesday at 9:40 p.m. at Good Hope Road and Alabama Avenue SE while returning home from an assignment covering a community meeting in Eastern Market. Police say she was switching buses at the time and was not the intended victim.

D.C. Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier said Thursday that a man on a dirt bike aiming at someone else shot her. McClenton said on his radio show that the intended target used Milton as a human shield.

And there you go. Doesn’t have to have so much collateral damage in order to take out one intended target. You just have to standing next to the wrong person at the wrong time.

You have an activist journalist out of the way of the powerful and the ability to stretch the truth and claim she was the cause of her own death by not being tougher on petty criminals instead of the ones in office, when in reality the opposite is true. And neither the shooter nor the intended target had any idea who she was. It’s an untraceable assassination without those four obvious, old methods of detection.

This is how they control the narrative. This is why we’re all losing to a criminal cabal called the Deep State.

Still More Wicked Game Updating

This time I added what happened at the 2008 Halloween party and how the host is under future blackmail should he ever decide to run for office plus a few other changes. A sad chapter title, but he definitely owns it.

Still requires some updating regarding what and how things were done. We, the outsiders, can only guess. Often there are more mundane and elegant ways to provide effects that seem like magic or high-tech, but are actually simple and ingenious.

You’re stuck with me, alas, because people in this part of the shadow sector don’t blow the whistle. Tels sont les psychopathes.

Bizarre Link, Bitch

Added Project Bizarre to the MKULTRA Subproject 119 tab at top. This was the successor to “Telecontrol at Texas Christian University,” an attempt to see what literature existed with regards to modifying behavior electronically, though clearly there was more to even that having been centered at one school. The link is to the Institute of Science in Society, aka ISIS, website and contains more than just noting the newer project.

Barrett Brown and How Did We Get Here?

The fourth installment of The Barrett Brown Review of Arts and Letters and Jail was just released: “Enter the Kissinger.” I’m particularly fond of Brown’s articles for a number of reasons.

First, of course, he was on a portion of our public/private intelligence community that got missed when the Washington Post did it’s expose: Top Secret America. Most of what the Post revealed was the sheer size, that most of it was dedicated to NSA, and those odd little things like the sheer number of facilities throughout das Mutterland, some of which sport GPS jammers. One assumes this is so one knows when one is near one.

Brown focused on Stratfor, which as I’ve noted before, I read periodically in the 90s, believing I was reading some interesting information up until 9/11 or so when they threw up a paywall and it became obvious that their prediction that the Chinese Government was going to fall by the year 2000 did not come to pass. I would learn later that The Atlantic referred to Stratfor as ‘The Economist six weeks later and ten times as expensive.’ Among the haul pulled out of the documents from Stratfor servers by FBI informant Hector Monsegur and non-FBI-informant-doing-rest-of-10.5-years hacker Jeremy Hammond, were documents and presentations indicating that at the very least, Stratfor intended to run covert operations against people exercising their right to free speech and to address grievances against megacorporations through the court system.

More recently, NBC and Glenn Greenwald have made mention of the British intelligence apparatus GCHQ doing some similar things. The mention of honey pots, for example, runs concurrent through both sets of documents.

NBC, “Snowden Docs: British Spies Used Sex and ‘Dirty Tricks’,” Matthew Cole, Richard Esposito, Mark Schone and Glenn Greenwald, 7 February 2014:

Brown’s creation of Project PM, an open-source effort to document Stratfor and other such corporations like The Carlyle Group’s Booz Allen Hamilton. I mention in Wicked Game particularly noting the woman Linda de Lotto who lived in my building and therefore rather near to Jeremy Scahill. It seems very unlikely that BAH was unaware of that.

Then there’s Barrett’s and my shared interest in the dark past of America. He mentions CHAOS, for example, in the latest piece. For me, much of my interest has been a matter of survival. As I also noted in Wicked Game, there was the case for invading Iraq, Plamegate, and the case of Sibel Edmonds who showed that several US officials conspired to sell US nuclear secrets and faced no prosecution for it. That information very likely wound up in the hands of international arms dealers like A.Q. Khan. Some see that as an unfortunate, unforeseen side-effect of treason-for-cash, whereas I see it for what it is: a future excuse to invade some country because they’ve gotten their hands on how to make nukes.

This is the real face of Washington exposed. Sanctions and embargoes are simply ways to charge more money if you’ve got the contacts, and people in the Deep State and the Military-Industrial-Complex, that is spooks and high-ranking military officers and all the politicians, bureaucrats, Wall Street CEOs, subcontractors, and multinational banks who are tied into it have those. In making the rest of us less safe, they make themselves a fortune, or several.

Next, Brown is fond of pointing out funny grammar and especially long sentences. I’m {apparently} fond of using funny/bad grammar and especially long sentences. It never fails to make me laugh.

In this particular piece by Brown, he discusses some portions of Henry Kissinger’s book on his years in the Nixon administration. I’ll let you read what one tweeter called “the best Henry Cabot Lodge joke you’ll read all week” for yourself and focus instead on Kissinger’s love-that-dare-not-speak-the-crime regarding former DCI Richard Helms. On top of what Brown says about Helms in the piece, Helms was the one who ordered the destruction of the documents related to MKULTRA and related programs. He knew without a doubt that if the truth came out that it would spell the end of the CIA. It would go the way of those several precursors to DEA–at least one of which was closed for reasons of rampant corruption and investigated with the help of the CIA. This no doubt was as much learning the ropes of the international drug business as much as helping out a fellow agency. We can see the results today, I’ve mentioned Afghanistan and Honduras repeatedly in recent weeks as related to this.

But MKULTRA especially was troubling. See again the testimony and statements of the women in the post below. Can you imagine what would have happened if that had gotten out just after Vietnam, Watergate, etc.? We might actually have a government for the people, of the people, by the people today. I know, I’m so footloose and fancy-free in my thinking.

This is also interesting, because I’ve been updating some of the MKULTRA-related pages at top.

In fact, I think I’ve had something of a small breakthrough. Subproject 119, which John Marks labels “Telecontrol-Texas Christian [University],” actually has three pages of draft memo much like the 5-5-55 one you find up top. This one makes it clear that CIA was indeed looking for a method of controlling human behavior electronically and remotely, beginning in 1960. As noted above in the second acoustic psycho-correction article at top, the FBI consulted with the Russians on their version in 1993, notes that CIA was on to the Russians’ version as early as 1983. And it must be capable of doing what it does–planting ideas in a person’s head without them necessarily knowing it even occurred–from a distance. They wanted to use it to talk David Koresh down. They were at a standoff. The only way that scenario could work was if they could do so from outside the compound.


Also as noted above, that which is generically known as voice-to-skull, pretty much any method of getting what the brain interprets as sound into the head without actually using sound everyone can hear, was once defined by the US Army online. The definition included that it could do so subliminally.

They later removed that definition. DoD also issued memos altering how the Inspector General operates for civil liberties investigations and defined what constitutes damage from non-lethal weapons, voice-to-skull having been defined as a NLW. Both memos were issued on the same day.

The 1977 Senate hearings focused largely on the use of drugs and make no mention of subproject 119 at all that I can find. Is that a limited hangout? The drug research was an important part of the research though much of what they set out to do with it failed. For example, they did not so far as we know discover a truth serum, but they did discover how to drug people silly and make them seem insane. CIA also, along with the Department of Defense, had already done considerable research on hypnosis. Put that with voice-to-skull and acoustic psycho-correction, and you have a method of making a target at least generally do something that they may not normally do.

Like make an angry YouTube video naming the FBI agent who just ransacked your mother’s home resulting in facing up to 70 years in prison.

Now, believe me, I know all the reasons people don’t like to talk about things like this. First, there’s been such a good job of painting anyone who does as a “conspiracy nut” at best; paranoid schizophrenic at worst.

Then there’s the fact that, unless there were a large, hard-hitting expose on this that included the FBI as having used it on US citizens on US soil, and maybe even then it would have to include evidence that Brown was such a target, it will do likely no good whatsoever in Brown’s legal defense. Believe me, I understand this.

Further, it only further serves to harm my own credibility in general, assuming I have any left to begin with. But let me reiterate: this is not a guess for me. I have witnessed this stuff in action many times, both on myself and those around me. Combined with other more mundane actions–like harassing someone’s mother, a likely easily discoverable “weak” point for even the most basic psychological profile, and you can get someone in the ballpark of the behavior you are trying to create. My guess is, they wanted Brown to become physically violent as an excuse to shoot him. As you can see, he showed amazing restraint if it is as I’m suggesting.

You’ll find the standard psych profile discussion in Marks’ book as well as some of the few known successes with hypnosis that CIA carried out.

I leave you with a quote. It seems they are just absolutely convinced that they only have the option of driving me to suicide at this point. I’m attempting to show them for the kinds of people they are, and simultaneously just how broken the system is when you have no rights at all, no legal recourse, when the crooks are running it all.

Also from Marks’ book:

It was planned destructiveness. First, you’d check to see if you could destroy a man’s marriage. If you could, then that would be enough to put a lot of stress on the individual, to break him down. Then you might start a minor rumor campaign against him. Harass him constantly. Bump his car in traffic. A lot of it is ridiculous, but it may have a cumulative effect.

Search for the Manchurian Candidate, John Marks, ch. 10:

Those of you already in Texas and those on your way, wish I were there with you. Alas, the money situation didn’t work out as I had hoped. What I get for saying I was going so soon before, I suppose.

Please give him my best, and my best to all of you. One day…

DMagazine/Frontburner, “Enter the Kissinger,” Barrett Brown, 11 March 2014:

BBD: Al Qaeda in NYC

As I mentioned over here in Wicked Game, some time soon after 9/11, I made a call to the terrorism hotline number. This was due to seeing a pair of odd characters posing as electricians and wandering around the Upper East Side in and around Carl Schurtz Park near Gracie Mansion, the traditional home of the Mayor of New York City.



At that point, I had about ten years experience with contractors and subcontractors from working as a real estate consultant. This work began in environmental, primarily related to abating asbestos at the so-called Exxon Building, 1251 Avenue of the Americas, or 1251 Sixth Avenue for short. I had left PSI in 1999, which had been bought by Romney’s Bain Capital a few years before that. I was still working in the same building but for a different consulting firm that worked with many tenants in that building and owners and tenants elsewhere. Nearly all of this work was related to preparing floors for tenant move-ins regardless of who our client was. We managed the design team and contractors as our primary service, typically known as “Owner’s Representative” or “Tenant Representative” depending on who our client was.

In this case, I saw two Middle Eastern men dressed similarly. One was muscular and younger than the other who was thin and “brainy” in appearance. They both had cell phones on their belts but no tools. They both wore blue t-shirts but only one had the IBEW/Local 3 (the electricians’ union) logo on it. They seemed out of place.

The younger one noticed my noticing them and spoke louder than the other who was happily describing something in another language. The younger one simply said, “Get ready, get ready,” a few times which caused his smaller companion to quiet down.

Though the dog run at the Park has changed considerably since then, the photo below was approximately my view. This was September or early October of 2001. Wearing t-shirts did not seem out of place, so it must have been a warm day. There was no snow. The fence has changed as well.


They came from the north…


…and headed south.


Unsure what to do, I called the hotline. A few minutes later a man, accompanied by a woman and a boy, walked from the same direction. He was talking into a blue-tooth ear piece, as if to convince someone of something, “It’s near Gracie Mansion. It’s near Gracie Mansion.”

The trio walked the same direction that the men had. I never heard anything more, didn’t really expect to.

A few days later, I again took the dogs to the dog run at the Park. On the way, I saw a black NYPD SUV and an ambulance parked in front of, I think this building, 120 East End Avenue. I say “I think” because I recall it being further south but the appearance of the building matches that one, so most likely I’d just forgotten precisely which cross street.


Assuming that FBI and NYPD did find an Al Qaeda cell in that apartment building or somewhere nearby, and that the presence there was follow-up investigation, there are some interesting questions this raises.

First, I think it unlikely that this was a coincidence. This occurred after my stint at the Ford Foundation backed New Jersey Shakespeare Festival, and like everything else after that and the college trip to Germany the year prior, it becomes suspect as to its “naturally occurring” state. In other words, it seems likely that  some party (CIA?) knew of the cell’s presence but for some reason did not/could not communicate that information directly to FBI/NYPD. They instead used their unwitting asset via whichever method (voice-to-skull subliminals, subliminal sound, ultrasound, acoustic psycho-correction, etc.) to ensure I was there and noticed the men. Did they make sure the men were out and about while I was there as well? Why not? How did they know there was a cell in the first place?

A few years later, there would be a similar situation except I’d be completely wrong. Was that the same people or different made that happen? Was the purpose to discredit in preparation for what was to come, or to signal to me or someone else that not all was what it seemed? The second occurrence involved a man who somewhat resembled Michael Ledeen.

I’m not quite sure. What it does indicate to me is that the US government frequently knows more than it lets on. We the civilians go on envisioning a world that is 100 years behind where it actually is technologically and buy into “mistakes” that are actually well-calculated risks designed to influence public opinion. This usually moves us in the direction of handing over money and/or power to someone who already has plenty of both. Unless you believe there’s some superior being who thinks that’s the way things ought to be, you can infer surreptitious interference in our affairs. Attempting to apply other rules and methods to the plausibly deniable is pointless…that’s why it’s plausibly deniable: it’s designed to avoid detection.

In more recent news, Giuliani’s firm moved into 1251 at some point after I left. A couple of weeks or so before I arrived, his office and some hotels near the Super Bowl apparently received envelopes with white powder in them. I am told that they tested negative for anthrax. I don’t know why they were targeted and didn’t hear about it until I got to NY. This trip had been planned for months though and kept getting delayed.

It should be noted that Giuliani did not live in Gracie Mansion (though his ex-wife may have) while he was mayor. Apparently Al Qaeda did not know that. Maybe.


BBD – Clue or Disinfo?

Two posts below I made note of attending the NATO 3 pre-jury selection hearing on December 23. What I did not describe was how it was I came to be there.

Early that morning I woke up with a phrase in my head. I was fairly certain I’d just been dreaming, but as is usual for me, didn’t recall the dream itself. The phrase was “26th and Cuernavaca.” Being an American citizen and product of our underfunded-in-favor-of-stuff-that-blows-other-stuff-up public education system, I am woefully bad with geography. Google was quick to the rescue to remind me that it’s a city in Mexico.

This was quickly followed by a visit to the Twitter and, within seconds, information about the hearing. It’s location? 26th and California. Weird, I thought. A mix-up? A function of the mind control tech causing confusion between words that begin with ‘C’?

I had enough time to get down there and take care of some other business near by (showering at the Y because the house I was living in had no water service), I made my first trip to that part of Chicago. I also discovered that it is a Mexican neighborhood. Not so much a mix-up as a joke, I take it. Does it work while sleeping, giving hypnotic suggestions perhaps even including whatever seems to be happening live later during waking hours? How the f— should I know?

Now you might wonder why I sometimes follow the advice of extra-cranial thoughts given that the majority of those I’ve received over the past four years seem to have been largely aimed at ruining my life, directing me toward violence, possibly prison, etc.

In this case I’d say a combination of curiosity and, really, after what they’ve done and continue to do, what do I care about garnering the attention of one more set of people hellbent on destroying America for their own profit, power, and self-gratification? Let’s get all the scumbags together so we can see how they operate if for no other reason than the sheer entertainment value needed before things heat up in all sorts of really ugly ways. Because you know, that’s going to happen. It’s inevitable between Executive power and Legislative corruption carrying 99% of us to the brink of destruction. Or something like that.

Now as to why those using the tech decided to make me aware of the hearing last minute…your guess is as good as mine. Likely they think they can convince me that there are at least two parties involved and at least one is not as crooked as the other(s). Or, to continue to try to “train” me so they can try to succeed with one of those other, more desirable outcomes listed above. Because, really, it’s not that difficult to figure out. I need only look around at what they’ve done to know what they’re really about.

You can try to twist yourself into logic pretzels about how someone or other really has ultimately good intentions, or you can stop listening to what they say and look at what they have wrought. There is no brilliant plan, no covert op designed to save us all. We’re on our own. And if we’d just stop attacking each other, maybe we’d make some headway.

But we aren’t. We won’t. We’re on the downward slide and, like the dog who gets his tail stepped on by the master, we turn instead and bite the other mutts.

We’re doomed. Or something.
