Conference Information

The Fourth Annual Ritual Abuse, Secretive Organizations and Mind Control Conference will be held on August 10-12,2001, S.M.A.R.T. will be holding a conference at the DoubleTree Hotel near Bradley International Airport (between Hartford, CT and Springfield, MA). Please see the conference web page at for more information. We also recommend reading about conference safety and trigger management. There is a discount for those that register before 7/10.

Please consider sponsoring survivors that are financially unable to come to the conference. Donations are not tax deductible.

Carol Rutz, author of “A Nation Betrayed,” will be speaking at our conference this summer. Carol Rutz is a survivor of Mind Control experimentation. She has attempted to document through research and FOIA’s material that validates her personal experiences as well as other survivors. She is presenting these facts in a book aimed at not only survivors, but health professionals and the general public. Her topic at the conference will be: “My story intertwined with documentation.”

A Nation Betrayed: The Chilling and true story of Secret Cold War Experiments Performed on Our Children and Other Innocent People by Carol Rutz

All accusations are alleged. This may be heavy for survivors of ritual abuse and mind control.

Are you one of the thousands of people used as a human guinea pig by your own government during the Cold War? A Nation Betrayed is the culmination of documentation obtained from over 18,000 pages of declassified documents and testimony from survivors of these experiments.

Rutz’s book gives us a first hand view of a government in such fear of communism that it loses sight of the safety of it’s own people. To counter the threat of communism, the CIA conspires to build the perfect spy from our country’s innocent children. After being imported for their knowledge and expertise, some of the same Nazi scientists and doctors who performed grizzly experiments carried out in the death camps during World War II join forces with the U.S Government in these efforts.

Her book walks us through her horrifying journey of experimentation and training by her CIA torturers beginning at the age of four as part of the government sanctioned Bluebird/Artichoke and MKULTRA Projects. Using electroshock, drugs, hypnosis, sensory deprivation, and insidious trauma, our government performs Mind Control experiments on her and other innocent children. The objective is creation of a Manchurian Candidate-a sleeper assassin-as well as instilling skills in ESP and remote viewing.

A Nation Betrayed also shows how our own tax dollars paid doctors and hospitals to conduct Cold War research with chemical and biological warfare materials and radiation. Why hasn’t our government been held accountable not only for these atrocities, but for dumping chemicals at sea, testing chemicals on unsuspecting U.S. populations, administering LSD to unwitting soldiers, feeding radioactive cereal to retarded children, and other unthinkable acts in the name of national security?

A Nation Betrayed is a must read to educate the Nation about these abuses, because our silence conveys a powerful message to those in power. Without the necessary changes, history is doomed to repeat itself.

Court Cases and Legal Articles

LSD ‘Guinea Pig’ Wins in Court – Government, Prison Doctor Confess to Negligence Citizen investigation revealed that hundreds of inmates were used in scientific experiments in 1960’s, 1970’s – Jim Bronskill and Mike Blanchfield – Ottawa Citizen page A 1 – OTTAWA – “The federal government and a former prison psychologist have confessed to battery and negligence for giving LSD to a teenage inmate — a drug she says caused brain damage and hallucinations. The admission by the government and by Mark Eveson, a psychologist, in Ontario’s Superior Court of Justice is a victory for former prisoner Dorothy Proctor.

The prison is now closed. In 1998, Ms. Proctor sued the government and former officials of the Correctional Service of Canada for giving her the drug, saying it has caused brain damage and terrifying hallucinations….investigation by the Ottawa Citizen and Southam News showed hundreds of federal inmates were used in scientific experiments during the 1960s and 1970s.”

The $150-million lawsuit launched late last year by an inmate of the Penetanguishene Mental Health Centre also alleges the inmates were injected with hallucinogens by psychiatrists in an attempt to break down their personalities.”

Child in incest is always the victim, state high court says – Minor can’t be held complicit even if sex act consensual – Harriet Chiang, Chronicle Legal Affairs Writer – 4/27/01 – A minor who has consensual sex with a parent is not guilty of incest and cannot be an accomplice to the crime, the California Supreme Court ruled yesterday…. the high court said the burden is on the adult to refrain from having sex with the minor. “A child under 18 who has an incestuous sexual relationship with an adult is a victim, not a perpetrator of the incest.”

This may be very heavy for survivors.

Hearing focuses on witchcraft – ‘Satanic Bible’ found near can holding skeleton, investigator says – By Glenn Puit – Review-journal – 4/10/01 Las Vegas Review-Journal – “The criminal case of Brookey Lee West was bizarre enough last February, when authorities accused West of sealing her mother’s body in a trash can.

Woman wins hypnotist case – by Michael Horsnell – 5/26/01 – A woman who claimed that she was turned into a suicidal zombie when a stage hypnotist reawakened the trauma of childhood sex abuse won her legal action for damages yesterday….The judge found that Mrs Howarth was the victim of “persistent childhood sexual abuse”. Her behaviour in developing coping strategies and in keeping the matter secret from the world was entirely consistent with the behaviour of adults who had been abused as children. He was also satisfied that her deeply buried memories were rekindled when she was in a hypnotised state.”,,2-2001180257,00.html

Ex-pupils seek payback for abuse at deaf school – By Meadow Rue Merrill, Globe Correspondent, 6/11/01 – PORTLAND, Maine – “state-run Governor Baxter School for the Deaf, on Maine’s Mackworth Island, near Portland….Martineau was one of the first to demand the state take responsibility for what had happened. Denied the ability to sue, he helped form a survivors’ support group, A Safer Place of Portland, to prod the state to take action…40 years after the alleged abuse began…the group is growing in solidarity…the Maine Legislature, which is expected to set aside $5 million to compensate victims and to apologize to each one….In 1976, six years before the attorney general’s investigation, at least three Baxter teachers had independently reported suspected abuse to the Maine Department of Education, but no action was taken. By the time the attorney general investigated, it was too late to press charges. The statute of limitations had expired.” _at_deaf_schoolP.shtml

Articles on Memory

Iatrogenic memory change. Examining the empirical evidence. Leavitt F Am J Forensic Psychol (19)2: 21-32, 2001. “Certainty of sexual abuse predated treatment in 33% of the cases. Therapeutic causation was unlikely in another 26% because personal certainty of abuse emerged on average 4.1 years after termination of treatment. The pattern was similar for groups treated with and without hypnosis. Remarkably few patients recovered first memories in therapy with the help of hypnosis. This study places the percentage at 4%. Thus, in the direct study of patients who recovered memory of childhood sexual abuse, hypnosis was not an important factor in the emergence of sexual abuse memories. …The results do not support widespread implanting of novel memories of sexual abuse by therapists.”

“Lost in a shopping mall” — A breach of professional ethics. Crook LS, Dean M Ethics & Behavior 9(1):39-50, 1999 – “The “lost in a shopping mall” study has been cited to support claims that psychotherapists can implant memories of false autobiographical information of childhood trauma in their patients. The mall study originated in 1991 as 5 pilot experiments involving 3 children and 2 adult participants…An analysis of the mall study shows that, beyond the external misrepresentations, internal scientific methodological errors cast doubt on the validity of the claims that have been attributed to the mall study within scholarly and legal arenas.”

The Spectrum of Dissociative Disorders: An Overview of Diagnosis and Treatment by Joan A. Turkus, M.D. “Researchers and clinicians believe that dissociation is a common, naturally occurring defense against childhood trauma. Children tend to dissociate more readily than adults. Faced with overwhelming abuse, it is not surprising that children would psychologically flee (dissociate) from full awareness of their experience.” The dissociative spectrum (Braun, 1988) extends from normal dissociation to poly-fragmented DID. All of the disorders are trauma-based, and symptoms result from the habitual dissociation of traumatic memories….The dissociated memory is alive and active – not forgotten, merely submerged (Tasman & Goldfinger, 1991). Major studies have confirmed the traumatic origin of DID (Putnam, 1989, and Ross, 1989), which arises before the age of 12 (and often before age 5) as a result of severe physical, sexual, and/or emotional abuse.”

Coons, MD, Professor Emeritus, Dept. of Psych., Indiana Univ. School of Medicine. In the forward of the book by Campbell Perry, Ph.D., scientific board member of FMSF, “Dr. Campbell speculates…that her therapeutic experience was “horrible,” that she was “conned,”…who underwent “disguised” hypnosis. (He)… makes these statements despite …recent research demonstrating that bizarre memories cannot be suggested (Pezdek, Finger, Hodge, 1997) Dr. Perry did not review the treatment notes, journal entries…material which was available in this case, nor did he personally examine (her)… Coon’s review describes Mrs. MacDonald’s history. “Because Mrs. McDonald tells a highly-biased, one sided account…Is her continuing memory loss evidence of traumatic amnesia ? …The psychiatrist who offered the opinion that (she) had no psychiatric diagnosis was clearly in error…by (her) own admission…” she had a variety of social adjustment problems prior to therapy.

This may be very heavy for survivors of abuse to read.

United States of America – Advisory Committee on Human Radiation Experiments (Public Meeting) Washington, D.C. – March 15, 1995 Valerie Wolf: “The main reason that mind-control research is being mentioned is because people are alleging that they were exposed as children to mind-control radiation drugs and chemical experimentation, which were administered by the same doctors who are known to have been involved in conducting both radiation and mind-control research.”

Articles on Project Paperclip and the Nazis

This url has 20 name files declassified by the CIA, including Mengele, Barbie, Hitler and other famous Nazi’s.

U.S. Tried to Find, Employ Nazis – By Ron Kampeas, Associated Press Writer – 4/28/01 – Washington (AP) – There were the Nazis the United States wanted to try as criminals, and there were other Nazis it wanted to try out as employees….Some of the Nazis on the CIA payroll were wanted as war criminals, and some lived well, apparently profiting from stolen Jewish property….Allen Dulles, a senior OSS agent, never forgot Guido Zimmer, a midlevel Nazi SS officer who negotiated the surrender of German troops in northern Italy in May 1945. The success led to Dulles’ eventual promotion to CIA director. A September 1945 memo from another, anonymous OSS official expresses pointed resentment at Dulles’ protection of Zimmer, who had helped organize the murder and deportation of Italian Jews….U.S. paid Nazi … Klaus Barbie, a Gestapo officer infamous for ordering the murder of French Jewish children. After the war, he helped U.S. intelligence keep track of communists, and was eventually smuggled out of France….Another Nazi employed by West German intelligence on the basis of a CIA recommendation was Emil Augsburg…who joined an SS unit responsible for killing Jews and other “undesirables,” and who was wanted for war crimes in Poland. Augsburg worked for U.S. intelligence from 1947-48….he joined German intelligence, and a 1952 CIA assessment describes him as “honest and idealist … unprejudiced mind, excellent scientist.”

CIA’s Worst-Kept Secret – By Martin A. Lee – 5/16/01 – “…Emil Augsburg, an officer at the infamous Wannsee Institute, the SS think tank involved in planning the Final Solution. Augsburg’s SS unit performed “special duties,” a euphemism for exterminating Jews and other “undesirables” during the Second World War…..Recently released CIA records indicate that Augsburg was among a rogue’s gallery of Nazi war criminals recruited by U.S. intelligence shortly after Germany surrendered to the Allies…. The CIA reports show that U.S. officials knew they were subsidizing numerous Third Reich veterans who had committed horrible crimes against humanity, but these atrocities were overlooked as the anti-Communist crusade acquired its own momentum….”The real winners of the Cold War were Nazi war criminals, many of whom were able to escape justice… ” says Eli Rosenbaum, director of the Justice Department’s Office of Special Investigations and America’s chief Nazi hunter.

Germans at last learn truth about von Braun’s ‘space research’ base – Electronic Telegraph – Issue 2207 6/10/01 – Tony Paterson in Peenemunde ” the horrific conditions experienced by more than 20,000 foreign slave and concentration camp labourers who perished through starvation and maltreatment while constructing the V1 rocket at “Dora”, the underground Nazi armaments factory in Thuringia, central Germany. A Polish slave-labour survivor of the Dora factory recalls how Wernher von Braun visited the works and seemed “completely unperturbed” by the piles of corpses. Further evidence exposes the role played by Heinrich Luebke, the former West German federal president, as one of the organisers of Nazi slave labour at Peenemunde and at Dora. For decades, allegations by Communist East Germany that Luebke was a “war criminal” were dismissed by West Germany as propaganda.”

Ratlines: The CIA & The Nazis – Just as the immigration of Nazis and war criminals into the US involved the use of several projects of which Paperclip is the most widely known such is the case of MK-Ultra. There were 149 sub projects under MK-Ultra. The use of drugs for truth serum and for mind control were conducted under a bewildering list of Project or Operations.

Trauma immunological studies of abuse survivors

Antinuclear antibodies and thyroid function in sexually abused girls. De Bellis MD, Burke L, Trickett PK, Putnam FW J Trauma Stress 1996 Apr; 9(2):369-78 “14 sexually abused and 13 control girls, ages 8-15 years…a significantly higher incidence of plasma antinuclear antibody titers was seen in abused subjects when compared with the frequency of positive antinuclear antibody titers in a sample of 22 adult healthy female volunteers, ages 20-58 years. These findings suggest that sexually abused girls may show evidence of an alteration in normal immune homeostatic function.”

Phenotype of blood lymphocytes in PTSD suggests chronic immune activation. Wilson SN, van der Kolk B, Burbridge J, Fisler R, Kradin R Psychosomatics 1999 May-Jun;40(3):222-5 – “Peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL) of patients with PTSD associated with a history of childhood sexual abuse were examined for changes in immune phenotype…. These findings suggest the presence of increased lymphocyte activation in the PBL of patients with PTSD.”

Suppression of cellular immunity in men with a past history of posttraumatic stress disorder. Kawamura N, Kim Y, Asukai N Am J Psychiatry 2001 Mar; 158(3):484-6 – “The number of lymphocytes, number of T cells, NK cell activity, and total amounts of IFN-gamma and IL-4 were significantly lower in the 12 men with a past history of PTSD… PTSD leaves a long-lasting immunosuppression and has long-term implications for health.”

Human immunodeficiency virus-infected adolescents: The first 50 patients in a New York City program. Futterman D, Hein K, Reuben N, Dell R, Shaffer N Pediatrics 1993 Apr;91(4):730-5 – “HIV-positive males were more likely than HIV-negative males to have engaged in anal intercourse and to report a history of sexual abuse.”

Journal and related articles

Interpersonal and family functioning of female survivors of childhood sexual abuse. Rumstein-McKean O, Hunsley J Clin Psychol Rev 2001 Apr;21(3):471-90 “There is converging evidence in both clinical and community samples that, compared to other women, female CSA survivors do experience more relationship problems and more problems in sexual functioning.”

Hypnotizability in acute stress disorder. Bryant RA, Guthrie RM, Moulds ML Am J Psychiatry 2001 Apr;158(4):600-4 “People who develop acute stress disorder in response to traumatic experience may have a stronger ability to experience dissociative phenomena than people who develop subclinical (no dissociative symptoms) acute stress disorder or no acute stress disorder.”

Childhood psychological, physical, and sexual maltreatment in outpatients with binge eating disorder: Frequency and associations with gender, obesity, and eating-related psychopathology. Grilo CM, Masheb RM Obes Res 2001 May; 9(5):320-5 “A total of 83% of [binge eating disorder] patients reported some form of childhood maltreatment. A total of 59% of BED patients reported emotional abuse, 36% reported physical abuse, 30% reported sexual abuse, 69% reported emotional neglect, and 49% reported physical neglect.”

Child sexual abuse and subsequent psychopathology: Results from the National Comorbidity Survey. Molnar BE, Buka SL, Kessler RC Am J Public Health 2001 May; 91(5):753-60 “CSA usually occurs as part of a larger syndrome of childhood adversities. Nonetheless, CSA, whether alone or in a larger adversity cluster, is associated with substantial increased risk of subsequent psychopathology.”

Evaluating the child for sexual abuse.

Between 50 percent and 60 percent of the remainder were assaulted by someone familiar to them, such as a neighbor or family friend, according to those statistics.”

Business Week – 6/11/01 – Developments to Watch – Troubled Kids: It’s Nurture, Not Nature – “Researchers, who have followed 593 families since 1975, report that the risk of certain mental illnesses triples in children whose parents are excessively harsh or abusive, or provide inadequate supervision. In families with such poor parenting, 63% of the children developed depression, anxiety, drug abuse, or other psychiatric ailments by the time they were adults, says a report in the current Archives of General Psychiatry…”It didn’t matter if the parents had disorders or not. It was the way they raised their children that determined whether the child had a disorder.”

Child maltreatment, other trauma exposure, and posttraumatic symptomatology among children with oppositional defiant and attention deficit hyperactivity disorders. Ford JD, Racusin R, Ellis CG, Daviss WB, Reiser J, Fleischer A, Thomas J Child Maltreat 2000 Aug; 5(3):205-17 “Four reliably diagnosed groups were defined in a retrospective case-control design: Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), comorbid ADHD-ODD, and adjustment disorder controls. ODD and (although to a lesser extent) ADHD were associated with a history of physical or sexual maltreatment.”

Adult somatic preoccupation and its relationship to childhood trauma Sansone RA, Wiederman MW, Sansone LA Violence Vict 2001 Feb;16(1):39-47 “childhood trauma exhibited a direct effect on somatic preoccupation as well as indirect effects through borderline personality disturbance and current depression.

Post-traumatic stress disorder in extremely poor women: Implications for health care clinicians. Bassuk EL, Dawson R, Perloff J, Weinreb L J Am Med Womens Assoc 2001 Spring; 56(2):79-85 “We found that extremely poor women with lifetime PTSD were more likely to have grown up in family environments of violence, threat, and anger than those without PTSD. The strongest risk factor for PTSD was childhood sexual abuse with threat. Low-income women with lifetime PTSD had more bodily pain, even when controlling for other health and demographic factors. Women with PTSD experienced more chronic health conditions and had more problematic relationships with their health care providers and perceived more barriers to care.”

“Dissociation as a Mediator of Psychopathology Among Sexually Abused Children and Adolescents” Am J Psychiatry 158:1034-1039, July 2001 – Cassandra L. Kisiel, Ph.D. and John S. Lyons, Ph.D. – “Sexual abuse history was significantly associated with dissociation, whereas a history of physical abuse was not.

The development of dissociation in maltreated preschool-aged children. Macfie J, Cicchetti D, Toth SL Dev Psychopathol 2001 Spring; 13(2):233-54 “Maltreated children, especially physically abused children and sexually abused children, demonstrated more dissociation than did nonmaltreated children. Moreover, during the preschool period, maltreated and nonmaltreated children followed different trajectories such that dissociation increased for maltreated children but did not do so for nonmaltreated children. Findings suggest that although the self is normatively integrated during the preschool period, it becomes increasingly fragmented for some maltreated children.”

Childhood abuse and premilitary sexual assault in male Navy recruits. Merrill LL, Thomsen CJ, Gold SR, Milner JS J Consult Clin Psychol 2001 Apr; 69(2):252-61 “…both CPA and CSA were independently and additively predictive of rape in each sample, with men who experienced both forms of abuse showing the highest risk of committing rape. Additional analyses revealed that alcohol problems and number of sex partners significantly mediated the relationship between childhood abuse (CPA and CSA) and rape perpetration.”

Histories of childhood trauma and complex post-traumatic sequelae in women with eating disorders. Rorty M, Yager J Psychiatr Clin North Am 1996 Dec;19(4):773-91 “Trauma leads to the predictable consequences of dysregulation of the arousal system, avoidance, and constriction of affect; coherence of self and world are shattered. Abused patients’ childhood experiences teach them that to need is to expose oneself to the pain of abandonment and betrayal at the hands of individuals responsible for their care….Individual therapy provides the opportunity for intensive relational work that begins to restore faith in human connection and that provides a “safe base” from which to examine the trauma and separate past from present. Therapy groups for eating-disordered women and trauma survivors provide relief from isolation, valuable perspectives from others who have “been there,” and the opportunity to contribute to others’ healing as one heals.”
