Murder Is A Bitch

You are always haunted by victims “bleeding out.”

You start it with killing animals and learning to suppress any sympathy for your
victims. I had always assumed that the point of showing Catholic imagery of
Christ cruicified was to instill sympathy/guilt for your torture victims.

But in some ways I suspect that deep, explicit sympathy for your torture victims
actually provides a sort of immunity to what you are doing; by “empathizing”
with your victims, you are actually emotionally accimlizing yourself to their
reactions to the torture.

They kick, you empathize without removing the impetus for their kicking.

It’s heady stuff.

The private predilections of Harvey John Jack McGeorge, a United Nations weapons inspector to be sent to Iraq, probably were the tawdry subject of more Thanksgiving Day dinners than he d care to know about. His enthusiastic taste for S/M made the front page of the Washington Post and, as a slow holiday news weekend lurched into gear, spread quickly to the cable news channels.

McGeorge, president of Public Safety Group Inc., which offers bioterrorism research, analysis and training to different governments, is a former Marine and Secret Service specialist. He is also, the Post revealed, the co-founder and past president of Black Rose, a Washington-area pansexual S&M group, and the former chairman of the board of the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom, and a founding officer of the Leather Leadership Conference Inc., which produces training sessions for current and potential leaders of the sadomasochism/leather/fetish community, according to its Web site. Not only that, but his seminars mysteriously involve various acts conducted with knives and ropes.

There was immediate posturing. The State Department, which passed the resumes of McGeorge and other candidates over to the U.N without a security check grew defensive. McGeorge offered his resignation, but chief U.N. weapons inspector Hans Blix refused it. “We believe that Mr. McGeorge is a highly qualified and competent technical expert,” Ewen Buchanan, Blix’s spokesman, told the Post. And so McGeorge remains in New York, preparing to square off with Saddam.

McGeorge politely declined Salon s request for an interview. But a friend and colleague in various S/M groups, Jonathan Krall, agreed to talk about McGeorge and his role in the D.C. S/M community. Krall is the founder and director of District of Columbia Sexual Minority Advocates, where McGeorge is co-chair of the education program. He says he has known McGeorge for more than 15 years through his very public participation in various S/M clubs.

In the process, Krall believes, he s routinely witnessed the leadership qualities that will make McGeorge a fine arms inspector.

What was your reaction when the Post broke the story about McGeorge s participation in Black Rose, and the S/M?

Well, I was not at all happy about it. The story itself is about background checks of U.N. weapons inspectors, and there s no problem with that. But the S/M aspect of it was completely irrelevant to counterterrorism. One has nothing to do with the other, first. And second, all Jack s work in volunteer organizations or not-for-profit organizations is somehow a bad thing, and I don t get how leadership in a volunteer organization is a bad thing.

Wait. Volunteering for organizations like Black Rose?

Well, and the Leather Leadership Council and National Coalition for Sexual Freedom. Those are all volunteer organizations. NCSF has one paid staffer.

He should be getting credit for having leadership capabilities. But the fact is it s really not relevant. It s his background in counter-terrorism.

Were you surprised that he offered to resign?

No. I mean, this is a difficult thing. This speaks to whether someone s S/M life is relevant to their work life Lots of us have jobs where we work in public with a company s name tag, and the question is: Is that the only public persona you re allowed to have? And lots of people have lives outside of work, where they also appear in public doing volunteer work or some such thing, and that should be perfectly legitimate. And there s no reason to mix the two up.

But I think a lot of people assume that your work identity is your identity, and that your identity everywhere should reflect positively on your work identity.

Right. Though he s a government employee, and I think there are critics on the right, say, the Christian right

They don t like anybody having fun.

Right, but even some on the left who might say: Look, a private life is one thing, but McGeorge has made this a very public part of his life, and that makes it more complicated. Fair?

No. I think people really should be allowed to separate their professional lives and their private lives. And by their private lives, I guess I mean their nonprofessional lives, even if your nonprofessional life is public.

If Jack was really closeted about his S/M work, then he could be the subject of blackmail. The big issue would be if he tried to hide it from anybody whom he applied to a job for, and he didn t, as far as I understand it.

But the reason this is news is not because he was open about just any hobby. To a lot of people, there s something a little menacing about the idea of S/M, there s a

A stigma, yes.

And where do you think that comes from?

Oh, I think there s always a stigma on whatever the sexual cutting edge is. I m old enough to remember when full frontal nudity in the movies was a big issue of public debate.

Except there s violence involved, and the idea that violence is sexy makes people uncomfortable.

Which, of course, if you watch any network television show and watch the advertising for the movies you see violence and sex all the time. Sexy villains are there all the time. It s like Batman nobody wants to play Batman because the villains are sexier.

I think what s happening with S/M, in part because of the Internet, in part because it was taken out of the Diagnostic Statistical Manual [of Mental Disorders of the American Psychiatric Association] it was rewritten [described here] in such a way a typical S/M er is no longer considered mentally ill, that people are freer to do it, freer to find each other, and it s just become more apparent. And I just think it s showing up in more places that are surprising people, you know.

This will change as more S/M ers come out of the closet.

So it s a movement?

Well, I don t think the intent is a movement. That term is probably pushing it, but the effect is getting kind of like that. I mean, there s a huge number of people and huge number of gatherings, which is all great because of the Internet, because people can hook up, and if people can hook up without learning what they re doing they can get into all sorts of dangerous situations.

So you d call it a hobby?

Everybody s different. I mean, you take a spectrum of people, from the hobbyist who is into the equipment, to someone who has had fantasies since they were very young, and for whom it is, for all intents and purposes, a sexual orientation.

That s anecdotally what I ve run into.

When you say it s a sexual orientation, there s an implication that it s like gay rights, and should be treated as such.

Yes. Any personal-freedom issue, this is the equivalent to it.

I think the problem here is that the community has a habit of being closeted, and it s done a very good job of that. But the fact is, the S/M lifestyle isn t news, it s just one more choice.

But when people rely solely on the personal freedom argument, there s always someone who will ask: What s next, bestiality?

The thing about the S/M community is that there s standards. It really is a community, and you have standards for a number of things. They talk about safe, sane and consensual What s safe, which is a very fuzzy boundary. What s sane? Which, if you follow what s in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, sane basically means functional, if you re able to function in life and it s not messing up your life. And consensual is very important. Animals, children can t consent.

And the community has these standards for a number of reasons. [For example,] in the S/M community a standard for an event is to have dungeon monitors in the play area, and to have things closed off so the public can t get in, so people can feel like they can be safe and comfortable there.

Are these codified somewhere? Is there a manual?

Yeah, for the most part it s just sort of understood. It s very local. The S/M community is very local. Individual groups will have these things standardized in a sense to have dungeon monitor manuals explaining what s appropriate and what s not appropriate and they ll have rules.

McGeorge threw these seminars on these sorts of rules, and standards, right?

Yeah, he was a real proponent of these things.

He also has gotten some attention for other seminars, though. Like the one on knife play. Can you explain that?

Well, I mean, picking up a knife and rubbing it across your lover s body to titillate them doesn t sound nearly as dangerous to me as bungee jumping. I mean, seriously.

Hmmm. It sounds more menacing, though.

Well, but the whole part about role playing is that you re trying to create a fantasy environment, and for a lot of people, a fantasy environment is really something that gets their adrenaline going and is kind of edgy, exciting.

So you have lots of buzzwords. And the S/M community is full of buzzwords that have [nothing] to do with reality. I mean, slavery [is one]. Someone can say, Oh, I m a sex slave. But they re not a sex slave. They re somebody who is married and has kids and a mortgage in some suburbia.

But could there be a concern that someone like McGeorge, whose professional duties we could come to depend on to keep us out or throw us in to a war, could be too engaged with his fantasy life, especially when he engages in it so publicly?

Well, I d say that someone who has been as successful, who has worked to become a U.N. inspector, would have a pretty good handle on the difference between fantasy and reality.

But, speaking about the whole slave thing

Oh yeah, yeah. Jack has been very interested in the psychology of people who get into service-oriented submission vs. just fantasy playing vs. a number of other things.

Well, but it looks like he posted his own ad for a slave [referenced here] that was up until fairly recently.

Yeah, right. He s a real person and has a personal life.

OK, but you re saying he wasn t, obviously, really looking for a slave. What was he looking for?

It means you set aside a part of your life to play a fantasy role, and if you re doing that you re doing it in a very service-oriented way, so not only are you doing your fantasy, you re doing something useful for the person who is your master. Or mistress. It s a private role-play.

I mean, the one thing you have to realize with Jack is his public stuff is education, leadership, lobbying, like with the NCSF, and his private stuff is sex. It s not like he s having sex in public he s advocating in public. And advocating for personal freedoms is a very acceptable thing to do.

But some of the things he s advocating for, like how to handle a female slave in public, [see “Out in the Streets: Private Play in Public With Jack McGeorge”] makes a lot of people uncomfortable, especially since we would be sending him over to a country of Muslims, where women are routinely oppressed. That s essentially why some feminist groups, like NOW, have been critical of the S/M movement, right? The power dynamics?

He was teaching sexual freedom. Sexual freedom is not about oppression.

People [in NOW] have the right to their own sexual determination. Women who are members of NOW, and I know plenty of them, like having sex lives. And it s their personal choice how they do that.

So his going over there isn t, at least, awkward to you?

No.

The fact is that people in the S/M community lose jobs and sometimes they lose custody of their children over their private lifestyle. It happens.

And it happened to Jack in the past; he s lost contracts because somebody at some agency couldn t handle his private life. And it s sad to see that happen. These are capable people.

The fact is, someone who is really capable enough to have the range of skills to do the U.N. inspection job is not going to be your average Joe, and that type of person is probably going to have an interesting private life as well as an interesting professional life. Go for it. Take it. Take advantage of it.

It s a bonus?

It s a bonus that you have the type of person who can do leadership things, who can step outside the mainstream, who has done a certain amount of self-exploration.

And if this works out, if he s sent over, is it a victory of sorts for the S/M community?

Oh, definitely. The Post story was absurd but what I would like to see is a lot of people write letters to the Post and say this was not appropriate. I mean, if a former chairman of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force was given similar treatment, I don t think people would put up with it.

So yeah, if he continues, it will be a victory, and it would be one more public person who is known to have an interesting social life.

One last, pedantic question. In one of McGeorge s bios, he s identified as a het switch. Translation?

You can identify yourself as a dominant, a submissive or a switch, which means you play top sometimes and you play bottom sometimes. And het means he s a heterosexual.

Ah.

A lot of people say heterosexual to distinguish from gay, of course, and personally I don t like the word straight so I use heterosexual, or het.

Is Alfreda Frances Bikowsky a Jewess?

I looked up the name “Bikosky” in the list of Jewish surnames, and it appeared.

TheRealNews had a recent interview with Greenwald, the journalist that has been publishing Edward Snowden’s stuff. He mentioned that the intelligence services of the US and the UK consider Israel to be one of the major threats to both countries, yet, politically, America and England can’t kiss jew ass enough. They acknowledged it was about Jew moeny in politics – saying that Jews were the “ATM of American politics” – but Greenwald – being a jew himself, automatically tried to take the spotlight of of Jews so went on about Christian Zionists.

So Bikosky is one of the torturers in the CIA, she purposefully mislead Congress, and apparently still has her position. The entire “CIA Torture” scandal seems to be a proxy for 9/11. The torture was done *to get false confessions for 9/11*

That means Alfreda Fraces Bikosky was instrumental in covering up 9/11 and torturing people to get false confessions about it. If she is, in fact, a Jew, it gives us a pretty clear understanding of her motivations – to help her favorite country, Israel, and to cover up Israel and Jewish complicity in the 9/11 attacks. If she is a Jewess, it would go a long way to explaining why she tortured various Arabs and Muslims.

Jews are a security risk. Stereotypes exist for a reason – the stereotype that Jews have “dual loyalty” is accurate. Most Jews are loyal to Israel, the state and the tribe, and are hostile to the host countries. Since WWII, probably a majority of major spy scandals have been Jews selling out America, first to the USSR, then to the apartheid regime of Jew bigotry in Zionist-occupied Palestine.

The CIA has a long-standing suspicion of Jewish traitors, for damn good reason.

Jews should not be given security clearances. The best way to fight terrorism is to never trust a Jew with sensitive information, as they are culturally predisposed towards treason.

CIA Torture Was Done To Get False Confessions About 911 #911 #CIA #Torture #RichardBlee

Shit like this is why Republicans are worthless:

http://therightstuff.biz/2014/12/11/cia-torture-report-reveals-americans-are-pussies/

ZeroHedge has a great artciel that summarizes this, but it has next to nothing new in it; this has all been known for years and years and years and years. For instance, it was reported that they reverse engineered SERE in order to use the same tactics that the Communist Chinese had used to get false confessions. We know now that virtually the entire 9/11 Commission Report was based on false confessions generated through Communist torture tactics.

Did everyone forget that the CIA brought the hijackers to the US, gave them visas, and trained them on CIA affiliated air fields? Maybe it’s time to anally force feed certain high level CIA officials that were involved in this?

Richard Blee anyone?

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-12-12/media-focusing-wrong-senate-torture-report

Now, why would they need to get false confessions about 9/11? It pretty much answers itself, doesn’t it?

I’ve said it for years, 9/11 makes a really good litmus test. It’s something anyone with half a brain could figure out, so just realize that the majority of people pushing the (completely false) Official 9/11 Conspiracy Theory are not confused, or suffer from a lack of knowledge.

They are knowingly and purposefully lying.

“But Hipster, someone would have talked!”

They did talk, you moron, you just didn’t listen.

Wag The Dog 10: The Putin Problem

The Putin Problem is the fact that during the entire Western media campaign against Russia in the last few years, the White Nationalist, alternative right, and other ostensibly dissident publications spent quite a bit of time hero-worshipping Putin, casting him as some great White savior, and even publicized Alexander Dugin, the Russian equivalent of a neo-conservative imperalist media campaigner. Something like a Russian, pro-Putin David Frum.

There’s no “conspiracy” of course, anymore than there is a “conspiracy” if someone punches you and you punch back – it’s a reaction. The alternative right, the White Nationalists, and ostensibly dissident – especially the right-leaning – are, after all, reactionaries. Putin is in the news, and the coverage is anti-Putin. So that means the dissidents are going to also put Putin in their news, but be pro-Putin, or at the least, react against the anti-Putin propaganda.

Of course that means that the media sets the agenda. You are not writing about world events – you likely don’t actually know don’t anything about the vast majority of things going on in the world – you’re writing about media events.

The Onion is everyone’s favorite satire, and there are but a few satirical templates they use for their stories. The best is taking one straight-forward news story and plugging in the elements of another.

CIA Admits Role In 1985 Coup To Oust David Lee Roth

Got it? Take a story like, “CIA Admits Staging Coup in Banana Republic” and then plug in elements of the CIA running a middle-brow yuppie clothing store. It’s a great gimmick.

The Onion also does “reverse the tone” articles. So, “Man’s Family Rises to Record-High Fourth Priority” takes what would be the subject for a human interest story and gives it the dry, factual tone of a finance article. The “political code words” thing undergoes a sort of “euphemism cycle.” “Teens” vs. “Thugs” and then you “agree and amplify” so use “teen” ostentatiously, drawing attention to the fact that it is a euphemism.

The Daily Stormer has a pretty stock set of templates as well. They do the “reverse the tone” shtick, and it is sort of an old part of troll culture (long before 4Chan existed.) So, the typical media piece that would go like this:

Prominent Human Rights Leader Debbie Wasserman-Schultz Mourns the Death of Beloved Yet Controversial Mayor Marion Barry

gets satirized as:


Jewess Debbie Wasserman-Schultz Mourns the Death of Degenerate Negro Crack Smoking Mayor Marion Barry

If there is a euphemism used, the euphemism must be rejected and the most offensive, most “trollish” term used in its place. Pointing out the obvious – like how very kosher many of these characters are – is itself “trollish” and the use of the archaic term “Jewess” is even more so.

However, like the “serious” White Nationalists, the Daily Stormer isn’t making up its own narrative. They are reporting on news, and doing a satire of it by breaking a few taboos. So it has two sections, “Jewish Problem” about Jews, and “Race War” about Blacks, with various a few various white “degenerates” and illegal beaners thrown in for good measure. It’s outrage porn, but it’s too self-referential to be truly outraged. It’s just sort of a Racist Onion.

The Nazi schitck is simply that Nazis are the ultimate bad guys, the ultimate political taboo, so you be a Nazi. It’s really fun, just like reading The Onion is really fun. Sometimes it even “makes you think,” perhaps seeing media coverage in a new light.

Of course, the highest form of trolling, one that may be lost on the younger crowd, is concern trolling. You sort of cross dress as a leftist and become the most leftist very concerned that other leftists aren’t leftist enough. There is just this great sort of feeling you get when you are online, pretending to have the exact opposite view that you “really” do, and having someone fall for the bait and agree with you.

Unless they are agreeing and amplifying, that is. Then you’re just getting trolled.

The Occidental Observer has an article about the “feminist protest group” Femen, how it’s funded by three rich men and acts as a sort of marketing firm as opposed to an actual political movement. Women take their tops off, scrawl offensive messages on themselves, and hold PR stunts at Christian churches, meant to offend Christians, and various places meant to offend the target-du-jour, Putin, or a modeling contest. The women are told what to wear and how to dress and what the protests are going to be. The women are paid well, and are often former and current prostitutes.

theoccidentalobserver(dot)net/2014/12/who-pulls-the-strings-of-femen-and-pussy-riot/

To protect himself from accusations of being a “conspiracy theorist” the author mentions Gloria Steinem’s CIA funding and even mentions the CIA’s role in the “LSD experiments of Timothy Leary” which seems to be the “official euphemism” traditionally used for MK-Ultra. I wonder if someone at TOO has been reading “Flogging Miley?”

This blog has the Putin problem as well, simply reacting to the “news cycle” but we are trying to be ahead of the curve. The report about CIA torture during the post-9/11 Bush administration is set to come out soon.

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/12/06/cia-won-t-defend-its-one-time-torturers.html

In an eerily parallel to the CIA’s Operation Dormouse, waterboarding and stress positions were fed to the press in order to cover up more serious (and seriously illegal) forms of torture. There’s always the question of why they detained people’s wives and children and what exactly was going on in Gitmo, Abu Ghraib, and the various “black sites” the CIA ran overseas. But one has to wonder, if these stories were fed to the press – like MK Ultra was – in order to hide a worse program.

We don’t know what the name of that program was, but I’m guessing the program itself looked a lot like Opeartion Artichoke.

Operation Gladio, Sibel Edmonds, Boiling Frogs, and the Turkish Connection

FBI 9/11 whistleblower Sibel Edmonds explains “Gladio B.” Notice who the terrorists recruited by NATO were – the Turkish “Babas” – the “Godfathers” – those in jail for heroin trafficking, blackmail, extortion, etc. Organized crime, in other words. It’s common knowledge now, but the CIA and the US military long associated with organized crime in the US and used their services in keeping the civilian population in line. And it was the government – NOT the mafia – that reached out. The government chose the mafia, not the other way around.

You find this pattern repeated by US imperalists in South America and South East Asia, especially the drug producers (Colombia) – in fact, in South East Asia, the drug trade always moves from country to country depending on which has the most American military presence (Vietnam, to Cambodia, to Burma/Myranmar, now, north west to Afghanistan.)

Since NATO was started to fight the Soviet Union, these paramilitary terrorist organizations were always labelled “right wing” and “nationalist” – but is that particularly true? In what ways can the mafia, drug kingpins, heroin dealers, and extortionist be considered “right wing,” “ultra-nationalist” or even political at all?

According to Communism, Fascism is when captialists (the rich) try to blunt the power of popular movements and elected officials in order to prevent levelling, the poor redistributing wealth and assets to themselves. Certainly, in the US, it seems to work that way. The Republican party is largely funded by the wealthy and works to prevent any sort of social policy that benefits the poor over the rich. But certainly, the Republican party – a hotbed of internationalism, global corporatism, and sympathy for cheap labor and mass, race-replacing immigration – cannot be considered “nationalist” in any significant way; they are internationalists, although they do promote a very different kind of internationalism/globalism than Communists claimed to.

This, then, explains the brutality of the USA “Deep State” and how it can pull off things such as assassinations of US Presidents, and even major terrorist attacks like 9/11. They recruit their terrorists from the criminal class. During the Contra wars of the 1980s in Central America, the US sided with “traditional power” – landowners, and especially, the managers of the local branches of US corporations. While their opponents were often much less white, much less Westernized, and much poorer. One sees the same thing in Venezuela, where Chavez’s party was the party of the poor brown masses, while the US proxy leaders were urban, upper class whites. The left has always been correct, in a sense, that there is a race war component to USA imperialism, and it’s also true that the whiter an ethnic group is, the more powerful, the more advanced technology, the more socially advanced. Unlike “anti-racist” complaints, however, it is not some special brutality on the part of the lighter skinned – the darks at least match the whites when it comes to brutality – it’s that the higher IQ whites, when they do engage in brutality, are much more effective, usually. While Rwandans can merely hack themselves to pieces with imported machetes (they can’t even make machetes themselves) a white population might use, say, drones to bomb villages.

Nevertheless, it should not be obscured that in the USA, it’s the very White (and Jewish) ruling class that is targeting the White majority population for replacement via immigration, and certainly, in cases like 9/11, Whites were the primary victims. From the Whiskey Rebellion, to the War of Northern Aggression, to the mass slaughters of the World Wars, to the imperialist ventures post-WWII, to the 9/11 Wars, the White (and now Jewish) ruling class has never been slow to put “their own people” in harm’s way, directly and indirectly.

While some sort of genetic sociopathy often explains the brutality, simple power differentials often do as well. Modern war and terrorism are planned from afar, far away from the victims and the gore, so this psychological (and physical) distance lessens the ability for the perpetrators to sympathize with the victims – in much the same way that a powerful man might not at all sympathize with the relative powerless position of a mistress, in fact, even fetishize it.

Perhaps that might explain stories like this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_McGeorge

and why CIA programs often look like something out of BDSM porno.

That is, perhaps, a more subtle sentiment than it might appear on the surface. Read it twice.

http://www.benturner.com/theirs/geeks_spooks.php

Now, what is quite interesting here, is that Edmonds says this Turkish Muslim terrorist group recruited by NATO was eventually replaced with “Al Qaeda” – also seemingly recruited by USA and its allies like Saudi Arabia. ISIS, an outgrowth of “Al Qaeda in Iraq,” is similarly positioned to carry out false flag attacks under the banner of Islamism, just like the Turkish/NATO Operation Gladio carried out false flags under the banner of Communism.

And just like the Turks in Operation Gladio, just like Abdullah Catli above, the “Al Qaeda” terrorists that purportedly highjacked the airliners on 9/11, we all given US visas.

Let’s not forget, Mike Springman, former head of the American visa bureau in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, said he tried to keep the hijackers out of the US, as they were known terrorists, but he was overruled by the CIA. This has been open, common knowledge for years, yet it has never seemed to enter into the thick skulls of conservative Republicans, but the CIA brought the hijackers to America.

Wag The Dog 5

Evidence of Revision: a must see, 9 hour documentary. It includes a whole lot of suppressed TV footage. While the assassination of JFK has been told and retold a million times, the assassination of RFK is a lot more interesting. Post-9/11, the neo-conservatives resurrected the memory of Sirhan Sirhan in order to justify Zionism and the wars against Islam, Sirhan was said the be “the first jihadi terrorist.”

But they quickly dropped it, because no one really wanted America to remember that story.

The story of Sirhan Sirhan is so hilariously bizarre. He actually had a newspaper article in his pocket about Israel, and the story was supposed to be that he was a Palestinian that hated JFK for supporting Israel. They actually *hypnotized* Sirhan Sirhan at his trial and told him what to say. For his part, Sirhan was so obviously drugged and brainwashed he couldn’t remember a thing. Perhaps America’s first brush with the CIA’s brainwashing and mind control program. The fact that the CIA spent years drugging and torturing people in order to create “Manchurian Candidates” is now part of the public record, there are pallets of declassified documents on the program.

But bring it up – these publicly acknowledged historical facts, and you’re likely to be called a “conspiracy theorist.”

Remember when the Republicans went on CSPAN and brought out carts of food that were supposedly being fed to detainees in Gitmo? Yeah, everyone knew those people were being tortured, but the conservative Republicans went on TV and tried to pretend they were being coddled or something. Just a few weeks ago, the CIA admitted they did far more than “waterboard” the detainees – the outright tortured them, which the CIA has been doing since it’s creation.

Of course, the moronic conservative Republicans actually bought the idea that there was a “ticking time bomb” and the Muslims were going to do “another 9/11” so we had to torture them first. Then, when the torture program – detailed in the General Taguba Report – came out during the Abu Ghraib scandal, the top brass on the military blamed it on the lowest ranking soldiers, saying they were “white trash” from “West Virginia” who just got off on doing kinky stuff because they were “sexual perverts.”.

Republicans, conservatives, of course, bought the whole thing, hook line and sinker, and spent the next few years masturbating to that Jack Ryan torture porn TV show, 24. Made by a Jew, to justify what Israel and the USA were doing – torturing children.

They even forced a son to suck his own father’s dick – that’s the nature of our elites, my friends.

Americans are, in general, a very cowardly people, and their main fear – the one that they dismiss as a “conspiracy theory” – is that most of what passes for “news” is, in fact, fiction. Americans wet themselves at the thought that CNN, ABC, and the Washington Post are just as fictional as Mad Men or Breaking Bad. Like children who refuse to believe their favorite professional wrestlers are play acting – “kayfabe.”

And lots and lot of supposedly intelligent people are “our side” as just as cowardly and childish about the issue. Such is life.

No, I haven’t forgotten about the Flogging Miley series, that started with her unusual video for We Can’t Stop (Flogging Miley Part 1) and went on to tell the story of CIA agent Miles Copeland Jr. (Flogging Miley 2) and his sons, who all ran various interesting and maybe even spooky parts of the music industry back in the 1980s. We covered CIA programs like the infamous MK-ULTRA and the operation to feed MK-Ultra to the press (Operation Dormouse) in order to distract attention away from the real scandal, Operation Artichoke. In the last installment, we covered how the ultimate drug of the 1960s Hippie Generation – LSD – was introduced to the general public by the CIA and those working with them. In context, LSD was essentially a chemical weapon used by the CIA for a long time, and at some point, tested on many willing and unwilling Americans in the 1950s through the 1970s, and perhaps longer, in fact, perhaps continuing to the current day.

So all of a sudden, LSD moves out of the CIA secret operations to the universities, which do more or less scientific research with varying levels of controls. Then, it’s make illegal. Timothy Leary famously starts a quasi-religious LSD cult on campus, is fired, then helps head up a counter-culture LSD trend which is given mainstream and positive press coverage by the Luce Family’s media empire, especially Time Magazine. Writer Ken Kesey and a bunch of proto-hippies hold private LSD parties called “acid tests” (a very fitting name, if you think about it) then LSD goes public with a series of music festivals held across the country, most famously Woodstock but starting with the Monterey Pop Festival in California. Massive quantities of LSD are given out for free or cheap to the attendees and the drug becomes an integral part of the new counter-culture.

Well, someone had to make all that acid, and the man that did was called “Bear.” Bear was a sound man for the Grateful Dead, the proto-typical “acid rock” band of the era, and it was Bear that introduced Ken Kesey to LSD and held the first mass LSD experiments Groovy Acid Tests.

Of course, “Bear” was just a cutesy nickname, likely meant to evoke the hip mythology of the time, maybe a trucker, some redneck turned hippie, perhaps even with Genuine American Indian ancestry. Bear’s real name was Augustus Owsley Stanley III and he was no trucker; he was the scion of one of the wealthiest and most important political families in America. His grandfather had been Governor, Representative, and Senator of Kentucky. Mr. Stanley III attended the Charlotte Military Academy, the University of Virginia, and served in the Air Force.

In other words, the stereotypical background of a spook. Established political family? Check. Military, university, and the Air Force? Check. The key manufacturer and distributor of the CIA’s favorite drug for decades? Check.

Yours truly started writing about Mr. Stanley III even before this blog, and as far as I know, the first and so far only writer to ever draw attention to his spooky background. Poor Mr. Augustus Owsley Stanley III then went and died in a car accident.

So from Ken Kesey’s original Acid Tests, to decades touring around America and the world with the Grateful Dead and manufacturing and distributing LSD for their fans, Augustus Owsley Stanley III was there from the beginning, to the putative end, of the LSD adventure, and given surprisingly positive coverage from the establishment media in the beginning. His background and his real name seem to have hardly been known or mentioned by much of anyone during that entire time.

So let’s review. We have acknowledged CIA agent Miles Copeland Jr. admitting to the CIA’s use of LSD. We have LSD Guru Timothy Leary known to have worked with the CIA, and now Augustus Owsley Stanley III, almost certainly similarly connected to these programs, as the main LSD manufacturer and distributor over the decades the CIA was known to be experimenting with LSD. We have Operation MK-Ultra, fed to the press by Operation Dormouse in order to distract attention from Project Artichoke, which the CIA had to cover up at all costs.

So what was Operation Artichoke? Interestingly, various pieces of Operation Artichoke have been part of the public record for decades, popping up in the press every few years. Of course, the name was never uttered, and the dots never connected. Sort of like with the Edward Snowden case. Edward Snowden didn’t tell us anything about the NSA that we didn’t know. He just released proof of what we already knew, thus confirming it. But anyone paying attention would have known all about what Edward Snowden is telling us, because the NSA’s various programs also pop up in the press every few years, but again, the names are rarely mentioned, and the dots are never connected.

So let’s connect some dots.

One of the most popular search terms that lead to this site is Miley Cyrus Illuminati MK-Ultra. There’s already a whole mythology based around these various CIA programs. Miley Cyrus – well, whoever makes her videos – puts these references into her songs and music precisely so we’ll talk about her. But maybe Miley Cyrus herself isn’t really as interesting as what is referenced in the videos.

The usual suspects, like the always entertaining Vigilant Citizen might be taking the symbolism a bit too literally. I also have a feeling one of my favorite conspiracy theorists, David McGowan, knows all about Miles Copeland Jr. (see Punk and the New Wave Arrive from his upcoming book Weird Scenes Inside the Canyon.)

But when you strip away the quasi-religious mysticism of the “Illuminati” you’re left with something a lot more obvious, but just as sinister. Don’t make the mistake of thinking this is all in the past. The story so far is just context. The story of Operation Artichoke is more about the present – and the future – than the past.

Now here’s where the story gets weird, and the bodies start piling up – literally.

This next part is where we learn why you Don’t Drink the Kool-Aid.

Literally – That’s not a figure of speech. Well, Flavor-Aid as the case may be. Talk about losing control of your brand.
