Editor’s Page

Things have changed quite a bit since I originally wrote this article. A war has started and some of the laws in this country have been changed. There are a variety of good places on the web to find viewpoints not covered by the mainstream media. One is, a research list we have on survivor issues, that also now has information on the events of the last few months.

There has unfortunately been some censorship on and off the web of different viewpoints than the U.S. government’s. This can create a cultlike atmosphere where opinions are controlled and manipulated through propaganda, fear and censorship. Jingoism may be used to do this also.

Usually the newsletter doesn’t usually comment on specific political events. But due to the influence of the September 11th events on survivors and others, I thought I would list a few urls and quotes.

Before I discuss this topic, I want to say that I feel horrible about the loss of life and badly for those that knew the people involved. I believe that senseless violence is a horrible thing. But, I think it is important to know that the U.S. is also at times a terrorist.

Excerpts from “Bin Laden comes home to roost – His CIA ties are only the beginning of a woeful story by Michael Moran MSNBC….bin Laden, along with a small group of Islamic militants from Egypt, Pakistan, Lebanon, Syria and Palestinian refugee camps all over the Middle East, became the “reliable” partners of the CIA in its war against Moscow.” (in Afghanistan)

There are many examples in recent history, but a well-known one is the alleged US support of the contras by the US in Nicaragua, a terrorist-based group funded by us, against a democratically elected government

Also, the fear produced by this attack can be used to manipulate our minds and reason. This is shown in polls, like those that are finding Pres. Bush all of a sudden has an extremely high approval rating. A President that some believe did not win the election. (He did not receive the majority of votes. Many consider it a rigged election.)

Emotional Manipulation – Sometimes it is important to look at the argument(s) with as little emotion as possible, and try to see the facts only.

From, (picture at web site may be triggering) “…there are four elements to a successful fear appeal: 1) a threat, 2) a specific recommendation about how the audience should behave, 3) audience perception that the recommendation will be effective in addressing the threat, and 4) audience perception that they are capable of performing the recommended behavior.” Groups may also use these techniques on their members. They may say, “If you don’t do this, then the world will end, and so on.”

The threat is an attack to the US. The recommendation is to approve of the president, start a war which has caused the bombing of civilians. This will (supposedly) stop this from happening again (which unfortunately isn’t true).

I hope people will be able to look at all the facts as clearly and as calmly as possible and realize that mind control is occurring in this country, similar to that which occurs in cults.

Bush’s Faustian Deal With the Taliban –May 22, 2001 – US financial support of the Taliban this last May for their attempted destruction of their poppy fields.

Alternative view to this financial deal: “Did the White House give the Taliban $43 million? – by Dan Kennedy – The truth is contained in the transcript of a briefing given by Secretary of State Colin Powell, who on May 17 announced the $43 million grant, aimed at alleviating a famine threatening the lives of four million Afghans. Far from handing the money over to the Taliban, Powell went out of his way to criticize them, and to explain the steps the US was taking to keep the money out of their hands.”

“Alleged Hijackers May Have Trained at U.S. Bases – The Pentagon has turned over military records on five men to the FBI by George Wehrfritz, Catharine Skipp and John Barry, Newsweek – Sept. 15 — “U.S. military sources have given the FBI information that suggests five of the alleged hijackers of the planes that were used in Tuesday’s terror attacks received training at secure U.S. military installations in the 1990s….It is not unusual for foreign nationals to train at U.S. military facilities. A former Navy pilot told Newsweek that during his years on the base, “we always, always, always trained other countries’ pilots. When I was there two decades ago, it was Iranians. The shah was in power. Whoever the country du jour. is, that’s whose pilots we train.” Excerpt from

The Konformist – Osama bin Laden’s Bush family Business Connections…. “Money connections between Bush Republicans and Osama bin Laden go way back…”

“George W. Bush’s Dubious Friends” (2000)- “…among the figures Bush dealt with indirectly when he ran oil companies was Saudi banker Khaled Bin Mahfouz who, Intelligence Newsletter has learned, is currently under house arrest in a hospital in Taef at the behest of the American authorities. The latter are looking into contributions Mahfouz is said to have made to welfare associations close to terrorist Ussama Bin Laden.

Bin Laden’s family link to Bush – by Peter Allen, Daily Mail – Salem (Bin Laden) went on to become a business partner of the man who is leading the hunt for his brother. In the 1970s, he and George W Bush were founders of the Arbusto Energy oil company in Mr. Bush’s home state of Texas.

You are the Essence of God – by SP c 2001

You were born to be nurtured

yet they had you abused

to please their sadism.

They did not prosecute the perpetrators

to please their sadism.

You were not born

to please men who abuse children

to fulfil their sadism.

Do they not know you belong to God

and were not created for the pleasure of man

who abuses children to satisfy their sadism

who uses religion to justify that abuse

who uses religion to justify the use of children

to satisfy their sadism?

Court Cases and Legal Articles

Parent Can Be Sued For Sexual Abuse – Where a teenager was sexually abused by his adoptive parent, he can sue in tort, says the Florida Supreme Court in affirming the Court of Appeals. The suit isn’t barred by “parental immunity.” Herzfeld v. Herzfeld, No. SC95054. 3/15/01. Lawyers Weekly USA No. 9920311.

Charges against priest will stand – Santa Rosa – 9/28/01 – A Sonoma County judge …rejected Santa Rosa priest Don Kimball’s latest attempt to set aside charges of sexual misconduct against him. Judge Gayle Guynup ruled the statute of limitations hasn’t run out on Kimball, a former youth minister accused of raping a 14-year-old girl in 1977 at a Santa Rosa church and molesting a 13-year-old girl in 1981 at a rectory in Healdsburg.

Boy Killed, Black Magic Cult Suspected 10/11/01 – “Rio De Janeiro, Brazil (Reuters) – A Brazilian boy was castrated and killed this week, victim of what may be a black magic cult that has claimed 20 lives and spurred human rights groups to seek intervention from the Organization of American States. Like the 19 other boys who were mysteriously killed over the last decade, Welson Frazao Serra, 13, was emasculated and his body was abandoned in the vegetation around the northeastern city of Sao Luiz, Joisiane Gamba, a lawyer for a local children’s defense group, said on Wednesday.”|oddlyenough|10-11-2001::08:41|reuters.html

“Failure to act – By the 1980s, the Catholic Church knew more about pedophilia than any other organized group working with children in the US. So why didn’t Cardinal Law protect his flock? – by Kristen Lombardi – …Last January, Bernard Cardinal Law was named in 25 lawsuits alleging that he could have prevented now-defrocked priest John Geoghan, who is accused of molesting at least 120 children, from committing his crimes — but didn’t. Since then, two more damning pieces of information have come to light: Law received a letter in September 1984 outlining allegations of Geoghan’s alleged criminal behavior, and in 1985, as a member of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops, the cardinal was asked to review a groundbreaking report on the widespread problem of clergy sexual abuse within the American Catholic Church.”

Protect the Church at all costs – Cardinal Law plays hardball with sex-abuse victims – by Kristen Lombardi – “…attorneys for Bernard Cardinal Law, head of the Archdiocese of Boston, filed pleadings, or formal responses, to the 25 lawsuits charging that he had failed to properly supervise the now-defrocked priest John Geoghan (see “Cardinal Law sees no evil,” News, March 23), people were shocked by what they said. In court documents filed June 19 at Suffolk Superior Court in Boston, Law effectively blames more than a decade of sexual molestation by Geoghan on those who were allegedly victimized — all of them children at the time. The documents assert that “the negligence of the Plaintiff contributed to cause the injury or damage complained of . . . ” Law acknowledges that he had received a letter as far back as September 1984 “referencing allegations of sexual misconduct by John Geoghan.” Yet the cardinal denies he had “personal knowledge” of the former priest’s “propensity to harm children.” Ultimately, he refuses to accept responsibility for his decision to let Geoghan remain in the priesthood – a decision that gave Geoghan easy access to the dozens of children he allegedly molested from 1984 until two years after his retirement in 1995.”

Disputed theory used in custody cases: Children often victims in Parental Alienation Syndrome strategy – 4/23/00 – By Gina Keating – Staff Writer – Pasadena Star News “But PAS has been discredited by most of the nation’s psychiatric and psychological groups. “PAS as a scientific theory has been excoriated by legitimate researchers across the nation,” said Dr. Paul J. Fink, a psychiatrist and president of the Leadership Council on Mental Health, Justice and the Media.”

On May 18th, 2001, Pam Spiggle, one of the women featured in Garland Waller’s documentary “Small Justice”, had custody of her two boys returned to her after six years of trials, the last consisting of 6 days over 8 months…Most of the Guardian Ad Litems argued directly or indirectly Richard Gardener’s discredited Parental Alienation Syndrome as did the Therapist of the father.

Violence Is Endemic In Family Law – Many Lawyers Don’t See It In Their Own Clients by Dianne Post – “An informal survey done at an Arizona State Bar educational seminar showed that when there were allegations of violence in a divorce case, half of the lawyers suspected it was a strategic ploy. Unfortunately, lawyers, like other professionals and the public in general, want to ignore the truth about the prevalence of violence in families in America. In fact, violence against women is severely underreported in society in general. Reputable research done by government agencies and universities shows that as many as 65 per cent of women experience at least one violent episode in their marriage, and at least 20 per cent experience severe violence regularly. Other studies have shown that violence is the reason for 80 percent of divorces. The ignorance of attorneys about the prevalence of violence means that attorneys are not representing their clients as required by our professional ethics.”

Ashcroft Urges Caution With Records – By Gina Holland, Associated Press Writer 10/16/01 Washington (AP) – Obtaining government records may be more difficult under a Bush administration policy change made a month after the terrorist attacks. Attorney General John Ashcroft directed agency leaders to be cautious in releasing records to journalists and others. He said agencies must “carefully consider” things like threats to national security and the effectiveness of law enforcement. Ashcroft also said that agencies that legitimately turn down requests made under the Freedom of Information Act will have the backing of the Justice Department.

Witchdoctor killing feared in Thames torso murder – A boy whose dismembered torso was found floating in the Thames may have been the victim of a ritual killing. Officers are exploring the possibility of African witchdoctors using his body parts for magic potions.

This may be heavy for survivors of abuse. Letters to the Editor: The Real Darkness Is Child Abuse Wall Street Journal 02/24/95 – Larry Hardoon’s Letter – “The three Amiraults – Gerald, Violet and Cheryl – were convicted after two trials before different judges and juries almost one year apart. They were represented by able and well-known defense counsel. The convictions were upheld after review by state and federal appellate courts. The McMartin case in California was the result of a botched legal system and Kelly Michaels’s conviction was overturned because of legal errors…. The first trial involving Gerald Amirault lasted a record three and a half months. Nine children and their parents testified and were subject to extensive cross-examination. The second trial of Violet and Cheryl Amirault involved five children. The entire proceedings were public and extensively covered by the media….However, in Amirault, the majority of the female children who testified had some relevant physical findings, as did several female children involved in the investigation who did not participate in the trial. The findings included labial adhesions and hymenal scarring of the sort present in a very small percentage of non-sexually abused children.”

This may be heavy for survivors of abuse. Italian mass killer ‘was servant of Satanic sect’ – Rory Carroll in Rome – 9/9/01 – The Observer “Pacciani, …was convicted of the crimes in 1994 and died four years later. Italy consigned the case to history…last week evidence surfaced suggesting Pacciani was not the Monster. He was merely the delivery-man to a Satanic sect, which commissioned the murders to obtain human body parts for ceremonies…The real monsters were allegedly the wealthy and respected members of Tuscan society – including a doctor, ambassador and an artist – who to this day have remained undetected. A cover-up involving secret service agents and missing money is now said to be unravelling….detectives from Florence raided the homes and offices of Aurelio Mattei, a psychologist with the secret service, Sisde, and of Francesco Bruno, Italy’s leading criminal psychologist….Neither is a murder suspect and they have not been charged, but detectives believe they may have withheld evidence from the original investigation into Pacciani, for which they were retained as consultants.”,6903,548902,00.html

Nottinghamshire County Council – Revised Joint Enquiry Report – “In October 1987 seven children of an extended family in Nottinghamshire were removed from home on suspicion that they had been sexually abused by their parents and relatives. In February 1989 10 adults, both male and female, appeared at Nottingham Crown Court charged with 53 offences of incest, indecent assault and cruelty against 21 of the children of their extended family and extensive terms of imprisonment were imposed. It is generally agreed that this was the most serious case of multi-generational sexual abuse within an extended family known in Britain. The successful prosecution was the culmination of enquiries made by both Police and Social Services personnel co-operating together into what became known as the Broxtowe Case, Nottingham. It resulted in considerable praise from the media, local councillors and even the Prime Minister for the efforts of the police and social workers after the Crown Court Judge made named commendations in respect of the involved personnel.”

Mormons Settle Pedophile Lawsuit for $3 Million – 9/5/01 Sex Abuse Lawsuit Is Settled by Mormons for $3 Million by Gustav Niebuhr – “The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints disclosed yesterday that it would pay $3 million to settle a suit by an Oregon man molested as a child by a church member. The suit said Mormon officials had known that the molester had been accused of sexual abuse before. The case is unusual not only because the church disclosed the amount of the settlement, in advance of news conferences by the plaintiffs’ lawyers … but also because it centers on abuse by a man who was not a member of the clergy…Von G. Keetch, a Salt Lake City lawyer representing the church, said it strongly believed that the case “lacked merit” and had settled only out of concern that the litigation, already a decade old, could continue for years more, at high cost.”

French bishop convicted for keeping quiet about sexual abuse By Frederic Veille, AP – Paris 9/4/01 – “A bishop was found guilty …of keeping quiet about a priest who sexually abused children, marking the first time in over 150 years that a high-ranking French clergyman has been convicted of a crime.

King’s son, Nathan Paul King, 32, received 18 years and 6 months for the same charges and was also fined $16,000.

Articles on Mind Control and Experimentation

Tavistock – the Best Kept Secret in America – “Formed in 1947, the Tavistock Institute is an independent not-for-profit organisation which seeks to combine research in the social sciences with professional practice….Tavistock Institute (allegedly) developed the mass brain-washing techniques which were first used experimentally on American prisoners of war in Korea. (The author believes) its experiments in crowd control methods have been widely used on the American public, a surreptitious but nevertheless outrageous assault on human freedom by modifying individual behavior through topical psychology.” This site is being listed as an educational resource only.

Mid-century deaths all linked to CIA? New evidence in Olson case suggests similarities with other incidents 9/4/01 – “In 1998, WorldNetDaily first reported on the CIA’s secret behavior-modification program MK-ULTRA, which included experimentation with LSD on unsuspecting subjects. Authors H.P. Albarelli Jr. and John Kelly’s new book (“A TERRIBLE MISTAKE: The Murder of Frank Olson and the CIA’s Cold War Experiments”) deals with the mysterious death of one alleged subject, Dr. Frank Olson….(in) the authors’ third for WorldNetDaily, Albarelli and Kelly reveal new evidence that suggests a possible link between Olson’s death and several other similar deaths in the same time period.”

Mind Control Part 4 – High-Tech Crimes and Electromagnetic Madness by Arlene Tyner – This may be very heavy for survivors. Please note: This is being listed for educational purposes only. “Corroboration for the existence of an operational MC assassination program can be found in a declassified Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) document prepared by the U.S. Army in January 1972 (Author: J. LaMothe); Part III is titled “Mental Suggestion and Controlled Behavior.” Section B elucidates how hypnosis can be used to create a multi-personality “super spy” assassin, based on the writings of psychologist and Army consultant George Estabrooks. (Part 2 of this series, May/June 2000 Probe documents the U.S. military’s creation of Manchurian Candidates going back to World War II.)”

Please note: This article is being listed for its information on mind control techniques only. All accusations are alleged. “The Laboratory at The Naval Base …the fact that in the very military prison (Naval Base of Callao) where Chairman Gonzalo is kept in an underground cell, a SIN torture laboratory exists where prisoners are subjected to chemical and psychological experiments aimed at manipulating their minds, breaking their will and turning them into pliable zombies….According to the psychiatrist Teobaldo Llosa, it was evident that Demetrio Chavez had partially lost his memory, showing a totally different behaviour from previous days. There are several methods to induce loss of memory in a person”. The psychiatrist went on to describe a series of neuroleptic and anti-psychotic drugs and electric-shock methods which were likely to have been used on “Vaticano”.

This may be very heavy for survivors of abuse. All accusations are alleged. LSD, Mind Control, and the Internet: A Chronology – 1953: Project MKULTRA initiated at the CIA, at the suggestion of Richard Helms,…Project continued at least until 1963; almost all records of the project were destroyed, at the direction of Helms, in 1973, …MKULTRA was specifically designed to explore the use of mind- and behavior-altering substances as part of global strategic intelligence warfare. MKULTRA, in its final phase, “involved surreptitious administration [of LSD] to unwitting non-volunteer subjects in normal life settings by undercover officers of the Bureau of Narcotics acting for the CIA.” (Senate Report). Harold Abramson proposes to the CIA an $85,000 study of the effects of LSD on unwitting hospital patients. Funding for this project was funneled through the Macy Foundation….CIA arranges cut-out contracts with The Geschikter Foundation, the Josiah Macy Foundation, and the Society for the Investigation of Human Ecology, for human-subjects tests on LSD. The Army Chemical Corps. administers LSD to 1000 American soldiers (“volunteers”) who then participated in a series of tests concerning battlefield performance. 95 “volunteers” were subsequently tested to evaluate the potential of LSD as an intelligence weapon…. 1959: Gorman annex at Georgetown built with a CIA wing for testing human subjects. Geshickter Foundation is the cutout; Dr. Geshickter’s foundation funded LSD experiments on terminally ill patients and on federal prisoners. Geshickter’s foundation funneled more than 2 million dollars to other Institutions, many of them universities, from the late 50s until the early 70s.

Tsygankov, Moscow, 1999 by Cheryl Welsh “The book “Psychotronic War” by Gurtovi included a description. “The weapon seems to be capable, secretly, imperceptibly, work on his psyche, mind, behavior, desires, wishes, …A wave of monstrous heat struck all of his body and firmly squeezed him.” The section by Emilia Cherkova stated, “The victims are `tortured’ secretly right in their house, from behind the walls of neighboring rooms …” An article in the book stated, “persecution of citizens by methods of distant manipulation of the brain by means of ultrasound, microwaves, laser beams and as well computers…” Cheryl Welsh, CAHRA, 915 Zaragoza St. Davis, CA 95616

Money may go to radiation victims – Nation Digest – 9/26/01- Washington – “Thousands of people sickened by radiation exposure during Cold War nuclear weapons development could be guaranteed compensation payments under a proposal adopted by the Senate. An amendment to the defense spending bill would set aside $655 million over 10 years to pay the claims of people unknowingly exposed to radioactive fallout from above-ground atomic tests.”

Have the radiofrequency weapons been put to use yet – Igor Smirnov’s Device – History – the Scandal in the USA in the Seventies and the Electrical Brain Stimulation – When in 1951 American secret services started work on the project Artichoke they have set their goals as follows: “Evolution and development of any method by which we can get information from a person against his will and without his knowledge… Can we get control of an individual to the point where he will do our bidding against his will and even against such fundamental laws of nature such as self preservation?”

Charles Manson and the Underground Stream by Adam Gorightly – All accusations are alleged. “Sidebar: Freemansonry – During the late 50’s and early 60’s, Charles Manson devoted much of his time in prison to the study of Masonic lore and hand signals. These he would later flash at judges during court appearances….”Masons have that power. It’s a secret that’s been handed down since the Pharaohs. The secret wisdom…. The preacher and the judge got a hold of the symbols and they kept them to themselves…He’ll make a sign like ‘cut him off.’ Or like when I get up to speak, he’ll make a symbol to one of his marshals, and all of the sudden a whole bunch of people will be let in the court and there will be all this confusion so they can’t hear what I’m saying. They use all those Masonic signs to hold power over their people. So I started using the symbols. Every time I got into court, or have my picture taken, I use another Masonic sign. Like the three fingers, two fingers outstretched. When the judge sees it, it really freaks him out because he can’t say anything. When I see them making these signs in court I flash them back at them…””

The National Security Archive …published over 40 declassified CIA and Intelligence Community documents tracing the CIA’s involvement in the exploitation of science and technology for intelligence purposes. The documents illuminate some of the CIA’s most significant achievements…to some of its more dubious efforts including an attempt to employ alleged psychics for “remote viewing” of Soviet installations and the wiring of cats for use in audio surveillance operations. You may want to use caution at this site.

Electric Chair Torture – Catholic School in Fort Albany, Ontario – (all accusations are alleged) Globe and Mail report of October 21, 1996; similar accounts have been made to Alberni residential school supervisors of an electroshock chair used for punishment and discipline in that school’s basement until the school was closed in 1973.

Conferences and Transcripts

Both of these sites may be heavy for survivors of abuse. Carol Rutz’ conference transcript ’01 – 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 is: “My story intertwined with documentation.”

Carol’s web site is at : 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. Testimony by survivors of this abuse along with expert documentation leaves no doubts that a government’s fear of communism created the atmosphere of no holds barred.

Also at Carol’s website are Declassified CIA Documents on Bluebird, Artichoke and MKULTRA. “Could we seize a subject and in the space of an hour or two by post-H control have him crash an airplane, wreck a train, etc.? (Short, immediate activity)…..In addition to this, complete amnesia of the hypnotism itself can be effected and affective defense can be set up against rehypnotization by another hypnotist.” “Q: Have you ever been able to produce hypnosis without an individual’s knowledge? A: Yes, through the relaxing technique and on rare occasions been able to produce hypnotism against a person’s will. However, you cannot count on this and to attempt to attach an individual who did not want to be hypnotized alone would be almost an impossible task. In that type of case, I would use sodium amytal and/or sodium pentothal.”

The transcript from the presentation by Annie McKenna at The Fourth Annual Ritual Abuse, Secretive Organizations and Mind Control Conference is now on the web. Some of the topics discussed may be triggering. Due to the nature of the material discussed, survivors may want to read this with a support person present. Annie McKenna is an alleged survivor of Project Monarch, a government mind control program involving the military, various intelligence agencies, and the Nazi’s ushered into the U.S. under Operation Paperclip and wrote “Paperclip Dolls.” She has an article in the 12/00 issue of Media Bypass. She owes her rapid healing and integration process to a strong cooperative system and scrapbook therapy. Her topic is “Shattering the Myths – Deprogramming with System Communication.”

Transcript from a presentation by Judith Remet and Pat Wrightsman at The Fourth Annual Ritual Abuse, Secretive Organizations and Mind Control Conference, August, 2001 is now on the web. Judith Remet, M.B., B.Ch., B.A.O. worked for 25 years as a clinical psychiatrist. A few years ago, she ended her practice and now focuses on writing, teaching, and consultation. She has presented several conferences and workshops on trauma-related topics. Pat Wrightsman, M.S. R.N. has been a registered nurse for 30 years.

Relationship between dissociative symptomatology and declarative and procedural memory in adolescent psychiatric patients. Prohl J, Resch F, Parzer P, Brunner R J Nerv Ment Dis 2001 Sep; 189(9):602-7 ” This study confirms a strong interrelationship between clinical dissociation and severity of psychiatric illness.

Adult onset of major depressive disorder in relation to early life violent victimisation: A case-control study. Wise LA, Zierler S, Krieger N, Harlow BL Lancet 2001 Sep 15; 358(9285):881-7 “FINDINGS: 363 (50%) of 732 respondents reported experience or fear of abuse as a child or adolescent. 68 were excluded because they reported violence as an adult only. Compared with women who reported no abuse, risk of depression was increased in women who reported any abuse as a child or adolescent…, physical abuse only…, sexual abuse only …, and both physical and sexual abuse… Severity of abuse had a linear dose-response relation with depression. INTERPRETATION: Our results suggest a positive association between violent victimisation early in life and major depressive disorder in women.” Author contact: Obstetrics and Gynecology Epidemiology Center, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA

A Timeline of CIA Atrocities – By Steve Kangas – “The following timeline describes just a few of the hundreds of atrocities and crimes committed by the CIA. CIA operations (sometimes – editor’s note) follow the same recurring script. First, American business interests abroad are threatened by a popular or democratically elected leader. The people support their leader because he intends to conduct land reform, strengthen unions, redistribute wealth, nationalize foreign-owned industry, and regulate business to protect workers, consumers and the environment. So, on behalf of American business, and often with their help, the CIA mobilizes the opposition. First it identifies right-wing groups within the country (usually the military), and offers them a deal: “We’ll put you in power if you maintain a favorable business climate for us.” The Agency then hires, trains and works with them to overthrow the existing government (usually a democracy).”

Anti-spin activist John Stauber penetrates America’s lie machine. By Michael Manekin – “Corporations, governments, and special interest groups spend at least 30 billion dollars annually…Whether you hear the news on NPR or your local morning shock jock, read the New York Times or USA Today, watch C-Span or the nightly news, an enormous percentage of the news you take in will be the direct result of somebody’s spin. And it’s all because of a subdivision of the advertising world called the public relations industry.” Stauber: “…there is a hidden, secret power dedicated to invisibly manipulating public opinion and public policy on behalf of the powerful…It’s the public relations industry.”

Managing memories ; Sometimes it’s necessary to forget, researcher advises Marina Pisano – San Antonio Express-News 8/6/01 “Anderson and researcher Collin Green…whose findings were published in March in the journal Nature, had college students study 40 pairs of unrelated or weakly related words such as “moss-north” and “ordeal-roach” so that when they were given the left-hand cue word, they could supply the right-hand word….conclusion: Memory impairment increases as a person practices avoidance of the memory.”

This may be heavy for survivors of abuse. Kindling, Focal Brain Injury, Chemical and Electrical Sensitivity in the Production of “Environmental Disease” Jay W. Seastrunk II, M.D. “In the 1960’s, while doing research at Tulane medical School, I became interested in the correlation between the electrical manifestation of brain activity and behavior. I was fortunate enough to be able to participate in deep electrode long term implant studies in non-psychotic individuals….They discovered that a stimulus to the brain, that ordinarily would produce no change in either the animal’s behavior or in the electrical activity of its brain, did produce significant changes in both behavior and electrical activity, if it were repeated and repeated. They called the repeated stimulus “a chronic irritant,” and the resulting effect “kindling.”

Study: 300,000 U.S. kids in sex trade – MSNBC Staff And Wire Reports – 9/10/01 “Child sexual exploitation is the most hidden form of child abuse in the U.S. and North America today. It is the nation’s least recognized epidemic,” Richard Estes, a University of Pennsylvania professor of social work and co-author of the report, said in a statement announcing the study. Based on field research, interviews and surveys from 288 federal and local agencies, the study estimated that 300,000 to 400,000 children in America were victims of sexual exploitation each year. That’s 1 of every 100 children in the country.

Working memory in posttraumatic stress disorder–An event-related potential study. Galletly C, Clark CR, McFarlane AC, Weber DL J Trauma Stress 2001 Apr 14:295-309 – “…Midline N2 and P3 abnormalities previously noted in PTSD during target detection were replicated. Scalp topographic data revealed sustained reduction in activity over the right hemisphere during working memory updating. Executive processes were associated with brief but widespread right hemisphere reductions during the P3, followed by sustained, bilateral reduction frontally. This study identifies an abnormal pattern of cortical network function during both the updating and use of working memory in PTSD.” Author contact: Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory, Department of Psychology, Flinders University of South Australia, Adelaide, Australia.

Classics in the History of Psychology – An internet resource developed by Christopher D. Green – York University, Toronto, Ontario ISSN 1492-3173 Instinct and the Unconscious – A Contribution to a Biological Theory of the Psycho-Neuroses by William H.R. Rivers (1920) APPENDIX II – A CASE OF CLAUSTROPHOBIA[1] “The main facts of the case from the first of these three points of view is that by following a certain procedure there came back to the patient a memory from early childhood which had, so far as he knew, been completely absent from his manifest consciousness for about twenty-seven years. It had been so completely forgotten that even six years devoted to research into his infantile memories had failed to recall it. If it had not been for the independent confirmation of his parents the whole memory might have been dismissed as fictitious, but their evidence makes it clear that we have to do with the revival of a genuine memory.”

Diverse patterns of neuroendocrine activity in maltreated children. Cicchetti D, Rogosch FA Dev Psychopathol 2001 Summer; 13(3):677-93 “Maltreated children who had been both physically and sexually abused (as well as neglected or emotionally maltreated) exhibited substantial elevations in morning cortisol levels; children who had high (>1 SD) cortisol levels in both the morning and afternoon were also overrepresented in the multiple abuse group. Developmental timing of maltreatment did not account for these group differences, whereas the severity of sexual abuse was implicated.” Author contact: Mt Hope Family Center, University of Rochester, NY 14608, USA.

How do you explain the untimely deaths of three individuals connected to the case just before they were to have their day in court? How do you explain the fact that nearly 500 kids, of all different ages, all reported being abused at the school? How do you account for the fact that the jury hearing the case overwhelmingly believed that the kids were in fact severely abused, but were unable to affix the blame for that abuse? How do you account for the fact that Virginia McMartin’s own granddaughter believed that her kids were abused at the school?”

Joseph Smith: America’s Hermetic Prophet – by Lance S. Owens – (This article first appeared in Gnosis: A Journal of Western Inner Traditions, Spring 1995. )”While ceremonial magic was a virtually unknown–or at least, little documented–element in Mormonism as encountered by Joseph’s followers, other occult aspects in his religion were openly evident. The most obvious was its irregular Masonic connections. In 1842, two years before his death, Joseph had embraced Masonry. But long before his own initiation as a Mason in Nauvoo, he had traveled in company with Masons–a society which included, among other prominent disciples, Brigham Young. His earliest connection with the Craft probably came with his brother (and close life-long companion) Hyrum’s initiation as a Mason around 1826, just shortly before Joseph began work on the Book of Mormon.” This and the following article are presented for educational value only.

Joseph Smith and Kabbalah: The Occult Connection – by Lance S. Owens (This work was originally published in Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought, Vol. 27, No. 3, Fall 1994, pp. 117-194.) “Through his associations with ceremonial magic as a young treasure seer, Smith contacted symbols and lore taken directly from Kabbalah. In his prophetic translation of sacred writ, his hermeneutic method was in nature Kabbalistic. With his initiation into Masonry, he entered a tradition born of the Hermetic-Kabbalistic tradition. These associations culminated in Nauvoo, the period of his most important doctrinal and ritual innovations. During these last years, he enjoyed friendship with a European Jew well-versed in the standard Kabbalistic works and possibly possessing in Nauvoo an extraordinary collection of Kabbalistic books and manuscripts. By 1844 Smith not only was cognizant of Kabbalah, but enlisted theosophic concepts taken directly from its principal text in his most important doctrinal sermon, the “King Follett Discourse.”
