Chapter Twenty Eight – 2

War for the Minds of Men

 

The two slavemaster groups seeking to rule the entire world are the British nobility and the Catholic Popes.
It is not my words they want to rule the world. It is their words. They are hung by their own statements. 1, 2

The British nobility and the Popes want a two-class society where Kings and Priests rule over all other men.

The rest of humanity does not agree to their idea that the slavemasters should rule the world.
Most men do not want to live under the boot and say-so of the British nobility or some Pope on a throne.
Most men want to live as free men who live under their own free will and say-so.

And thus came about the War for the Hearts and Minds of Men.

The slavemasters have been trying to force people to accept their idea they should rule the entire world.
Thus the slavemasters have conducted mind control research looking for a way they can control thinking.

A person creates thoughts and ideas. Mind is a word used to represent thinking activity.
Mind control means – control over the thoughts and ideas of others; control of thinking.
Mind control is a fantasy of slavemasters, intimately cherished as something desirable and possible.

What they hope to accomplish is impossible. They cannot ever control another person’s thoughts.
The only way you could control another person’s thoughts is you would have to be that person.
And since you can never be the other person, then you can never control his thoughts.

Even though mind control is a myth, a fairy tale, we will show you their vicious attempts at it.

And we will show you how to defeat their attempts at mind control.

Inception of Advanced Mind Control

The Body Electric – early history of neurology –

Luigi Galvani noticed the twitching that occurred when dead frog legs were touched by electric current.
He applied electric current to the nerves of a frog and observed the contractions of the muscles in their legs.
In 1791, he published his work on electrical stimulation of frog nerves.

Galvani

Galvani’s nephew, Giovanni Aldini, showed that electrical shocks to the brains of dead animals and dead people could produce twitches in several parts of their bodies.

Giovanni AldiniGiovanni Aldini

Other researchers applied electricity to the brains of live animals to figure out which body parts were controlled by which spots on the brain.

The brain is not the mind and it does not think thoughts. The spirit who inhabits a body does the thinking.
The brain is only a switchboard. You apply a small electric current to parts of the brain to operate the body.

Psychiatrist Thomas Willis described in detail the structure of the brain and the system of nerves in the body.
He assigned the nerves a new role in the control of the body. He called the study of nerves – neurology.

The spirit did not move muscles by force but rather the nerves carried commands from the brain to the muscles.
Today we know that nerves transmit electrical signals.

 

Thomas_Willis in 1667Thomas Willis

In 1867 Dr. Josiah Stickney Lombard, Professor of Physiology at Harvard, conducted an experiment.
He fastened the head to a galvanometer – an instrument for detecting and measuring small electric currents.
A mental torpor (sleep) could be induced lasting for hours, during which the needle remained stationary.

But when a person knocked on the door outside of the room, or a single word was spoken, the reception of the intelligence caused the needle to swing twenty degrees. This proved that regardless of what the awareness level supposedly was, there was an intelligence present in the body that did not miss anything even though seeming to be “not conscious”.  3

In the 1870s, Richard Caton, a British physiologist, measured the electrical output of the brains of living animals.
He surgically exposed the brains of animals and wired their brains to an instrument that measured current.
He noted that different actions – chewing, blinking, looking at food, were each accompanied by electrical activity.

In 1880 psychiatrist Josef Breuer was treating Bertha Pappenheim in the summer of 1880. He found that
when she recalled a series of memories back to a traumatic memory, one of her symptoms would disappear.

Bertha Pappenheim

Breuer drew two important conclusions from his work with Bertha: that her symptoms were the result of thoughts that were buried in her unconscious and that when these thoughts were spoken and became conscious, the symptoms disappeared.

Breuer called this catharsis therapy. It was also called abreactive therapy and talking therapy.
Breuer taught this method of therapy to Sigmund Freud.

Catharsis –
The process of bringing repressed ideas and feelings into consciousness.
The reliving of past traumatic experiences buried in the subconscious.

The theory of a subconscious mind was then promoted by Sigmund Freud and others in the mental field.


* * *

There are at least two spiritual Beings that inhabit a human body.
One of them monitors body functions and you could call that Being the soul.
The other spiritual Being is you, who gives directions to the body in living life.
You could call that Being (you) the spirit. The soul is your body partner in living life.

So, there are two Beings being partners in inhabiting a living body – the Soul and the Spirit.

Some men in the mental field have assigned the soul the role of being the subconscious mind.   4

The spirit (you) is assigned the role of being the conscious mind.

The Cecil family is one of the top British slavemaster families. The Cecil family was head of British intelligence.

Robert Arthur Talbot Gascoyne-Cecil (aka Lord Salisbury)

One of Robert Cecil‘s sisters was the mother of Arthur Balfour.

Arthur J. Balfour (left)

Arthur Balfour created the Society for Psychical Research in 1882.
It was the scientific study of all mental and spiritual phenomena.
These people are the first Scientologists.

Scientology has always been under the thumb of the Cecil family – British intelligence.    44

Sigmund Freud became a member of the Society for Psychical Research.

It was observed in hypnosis that you can install a command when the person is in a trance state. The command phrase could be “when I touch my tie you will bark like a dog”. When the person is brought out of the trance he might obey that installed command. The hypnotist touches his tie and the person would start barking like a dog.

Most people do not cooperate with this, so most of the time it does not work. The person may get the idea to bark like a dog, but he can decide to reject the idea and not do it.

Frederick Myers was a member of the Society for Psychical Research.
He authored a book where he discussed the findings of the SPR.    5

They found that the person being hypnotized has to make it work –

This is what Myers said about hypnosis –

The success of suggestion depends, not on the suggestion itself, but on conditions inherent in the subject. These are (1) willingness to accept and carry out the suggestion, and (2) the power to do so.

… the hypnotiser can plainly do nothing by his word of command beyond starting a train of thought which the patient has in most cases started many times for himself…

We cannot predict when the result will occur; still less can we bring it about at pleasure.

.
Another expert on hypnotism was Dr. George Calvin Pitzer.   6
He said you cannot hypnotize someone without the person cooperating –

…the hypnotic condition is not one of subjugation. It is a self-induced condition; a condition into which the subject consents to enter.

Without the co-operation of a subject we cannot hypnotize him.

Hypnotism never weakens the will…

…the subject never loses his moral sense, no matter how often he may be hypnotised.

Hypnotism does not change the fundamental principles of a subject’s education, and, while in hypnosis, right will still be right to him, and wrong will be wrong to him, no matter how deeply he may be hypnotized.

There is no such a thing as compelling or persuading people to perpetrate wicked deeds or submit to outrages while in hypnotic conditions, which they could not be induced to do or submit to in the waking state.

Good people may consent, in hypnosis, to the performance of many amusing things, but they never lose their moral sense…

This is evidenced by the fact that if we attempt, by suggestion, to induce a hypnotic subject to perform any act in violation of the settled principles of his life, he positively refuses to do it; he sometimes remains quiet, but if urged too much he will promptly wake up.

We cannot extract a secret from a hypnotic subject.

Carl Jung observed the body’s ability to reveal the unconscious mind. In 1904 Jung reported his experiments with recordings of the skin’s electrical activity, while conducting psychological interviews. Using a galvanometer, he found the electrical activity in the skin changed dramatically when he asked questions that penetrated the hidden emotions of his patients. He is reported to have exclaimed “Aha, a looking glass into the unconscious!” (Forerunner of the Scientology e-meter)

In 1929 German psychiatrist Hans Berger measured and recorded the electrical activity of human brains.
He coined the word electroencephalogram (EEG) for his technique.

Berger’s EEGs represented the brain’s electrical activity as complicated lines on a graph. He believed that certain recurring wave patterns with discernible shapes, which he called alpha waves, beta waves, and delta waves, could be linked to specific mental states or activities. The EEG is not mind-reading, the waves of the EEG do not actually represent thoughts.

In the 1920s, Dr. Walter Hess implanted wires into the brains of cats. He applied electric stimuli to specific areas of the brain. He observed that stimulation of the cat’s brain affected their motions and moods. A good-natured cat turns bad-tempered; it starts to spit and attack.

Hess mapped out the zones in the brain that control specific areas or functions in the body.
In the 1930’s Hess was brought to the United States where he continued his research.   7

From this point in time, slavemaster research into advanced mind control will accelerate.

Development of Advanced Mind Control

The fundamental idea behind advanced mind control is the idea that you can implant a command phrase below the level of awareness of the person and they will then act on it.

The person is made unconscious using pain and drugs, then they implant a command phrase.

The problem is – the person can decide to not do it.

So, they implant the command phrase to kill all children.
When the person is conscious he gets the idea to kill all children.
But he can decide to reject the idea to kill all children and not do it.

Every method of attempted mind control is dependent on your cooperation.
If you don’t cooperate, every method of attempted mind control fails.

Regardless, the idea that you could implant a command below a person’s awareness and have him obey it,
was appealing to the slavemasters. They researched it and tried to find a way to make it work. They used electroshock to cause pain, drugs to knock the person out, and made hypnotic command statements to the unconscious person.

That behavior modification method is called Pain-Drug-Hypnosis.

Who they are actually targeting here is your body partner who we have called the soul.
They call that Being the subconscious mind. We need to point out some things here, then.

First, that Being is conscious, they are not “unconscious”. They maintain awareness even during times of hypnotic trance, pain and drugs. Otherwise, how would they know they have heard an implanted phrase during times of hypnosis, pain or drugs? If they were not aware of it, they wouldn’t know about it and therefore it could never have an influence on them.

Second, they call the Being who is your partner in the body you are inhabiting – your “subconscious mind”.
By that logic then every other Being in existence is also your “subconscious mind”, since they are not you.

What I am saying here is there is no such thing as a “subconscious mind”.
There is only other Beings who are not you. And they can say things to you.
So, if another Being heard the command “kill all children”, later in time they can say that to you.

What is actually going on here is a Being under hypnosis, pain or drugs – is still aware of their environment.
They still perceive what is being said and done in their environment even when apparently “unconscious”.

In slavemaster attempted mind control, they try to influence the soul, hoping the soul will then influence you.

British psychiatrist William Sargant pioneered the behavior modification method called Pain-Drug-Hypnosis. 9

William Walters Sargant

Charles McMoran Wilson, Lord Moran, wrote a book called The Anatomy of Courage.
He said the majority of soldiers during WW I would not fire their gun to kill the enemy.
A propaganda campaign was put in place to label such soldiers as cowards.
How utterly horrible – the soldiers were not psychos who wanted to kill people!

Lord Moran

Lord Moran could be a double for the Dark Lord in Star Wars,
both in looks and in deeds.

In 1934 William Sargant was committed to a mental hospital.
Lord Moran encouraged Sargant to take up psychiatry.

In 1935, psycho psychiatrist William Sargant went to work at Maudsley Hospital, where he worked along with psychiatrist John Rawlings Rees. Sargant used abreactive therapy in conjunction with drugs and electroshock, just like John Rees was doing during World War I.

Sargant experimented with numerous vicious drugs and drugs given in combination.
Sargant spent 38 years butchering people with his horrific treatments.

electro-shock

Sargant worked with another psycho psychiatrist – Ewen Cameron.    8

Donald Ewen Cameron

American psychiatrist Dr. Donald Ewen Cameron lived in Albany, New York. He commuted to Montreal, Canada every week to work at the Rockefeller-funded Allan Memorial Institute. It was part of McGill University in Canada. He carried out cruel psychiatric experiments on his patients there, starting on July 7, 1943.

Allan Memorial Institute

In 1945 Lord Moran, Ewen Cameron and John Rawlings Rees went together to visit with top Nazi Rudolph Hess before he appeared for his trial. Lord Moran was also often seen socializing with Allen Dulles and his wife, at events in London.

William Sargant was a sadistic nutcase who worked for British intelligence – MI 5 and MI 6.

Gordon Thomas was a British Broadcasting Corporation producer who had several interviews with Sargant.
Gordon Thomas wrote an article Inside the Sleep Room. Thomas said –

When I was a BBC producer, Sargant had appeared on my television shows.
he told me about his work for MI5 and MI6

In 1948 Sargant was appointed director of the department of psychological medicine at St Thomas Hospital, London, and remained there until his retirement in 1972…

Yet even they did not suspect that Sargant, as early as 1948, had made a Faustian bargain with Britain’s two intelligence services.

.
Behavior modification has two steps.

Step 1 – removal of your identity and free ideas
Step 2 – install the new identity with fixed ideas

William Sargant and Ewen Cameron worked together to do exactly that to people.

The initial step of wiping out the person’s memory and identity was called depatterning.
LSD, brain surgery, and brutal electric shocks were all used to accomplish depatterning.

The patients were subjected to months of chemically-induced comas meant to destroy their memories of themselves and their families – a human catastrophe that stripped more than 300 people of their identities.

Cameron’s patients were woken from drug-induced stupors two or three times a day for multiple electric shocks. The patient would be given an electric shock, followed by five to nine smaller ones, two or three times a day for up to thirty days. These electric shocks were severe, at 30 to 40 times the normal power. Hospital workers at the time have reported that the screaming echoed around the hospital.

Cameron wrote that his typical depatterning patient – “There is complete amnesia for all events in his life.”
The depatterning was considered completed when the victim had lost all his memory and identity.

Once this depatterning was completed, the second step was entered into – called Heteropsychic Driving.
Hetero means other or different. In other words, they will now install a different personality or identity.  10

A helmet would be clamped on their heads and negative messages would be repeated into the victim’s mind for sixteen hours a day. These messages would repeat phrases like “My mother hates me, my husband hates me, I am a failure”, and so on, using recordings of the victim’s own voice. Cameron would also wire their legs and give them an electric shock after the completion of each message.

Recording the patient during psychotherapy sessions then playing it back to them
– part of the “psychic driving” process.

Inside the Sleep Room by Gordon Thomas

His name was William Walters Sargant… He was the British end of the most sinister program ever approved by the United States government: MK Ultra, an intelligence agency effort designed to control all human behavior.

One of a series of research programs that sought to control and manipulate human behavior, MK Ultra included wide-ranging experiments with LSD and other drugs, hypnosis, electric shock…

Sargant, like Cameron, had devised a system where all patients in the Sleep Room received endless instructions on a tape loop. They were played through a recorder placed under each pillow.

…at the Allan Memorial Institute… patients received their messages through adapted football helmets strapped to their heads.

There was another link between Sargant and Cameron: Leonard Rubenstein. He worked for MI 5. At the Allan Memorial Institute he ran the “research and behavioral laboratory.” There he created the tape loops. He had flown to London to show Sargant how they should be fashioned.

.

From an excellent reference site concerning Ewen Cameron –

The Canadian MKULTRA programme took place at the Allan Memorial Institute (AMI)…
AMI’s director from 1943 to 1964 was Dr. Donald Ewen Cameron, who called his experimental techniques “depatterning” and “psychic driving.”

Cameron subjected his patients to heavy doses of drugs combined with electric shock treatment, technically known as Electro-Convulsive Therapy (ECT), but not as Cameron practiced it. In standard professional ECT, the patient is given a single dose of 110 volts lasting a fraction of a second.

Cameron used a dosage twenty to forty times more intense, two to three times a day, with the power turned up to 150V. The frequent screams of patients that echoed through the hospital did not deter Cameron and his associates in their attempts to “de-pattern” their subjects completely. Sometimes Cameron would combine this treatment with up to 35 days of prolonged sensory deprivation in a sealed environment. This constituted the “depatterning” phase of the treatment…

Cameron would then attempt to reprogram his victims with his “psychic driving” techniques, which consisted of messages played on tape recorders, repeated thousands of times through headphones. Usually ten days of “negative signals,” stressing the patient’s presumed inadequacies, would be followed by ten days of “positive” messages, encouraging the desired behavior. Psychic driving would take place for continuous periods of up to 16 hours per day.

Linda McDonald was a young mother suffering from mild depression after giving birth to a child. She underwent 80 days of drug-induced coma where she received 132 brutal electroshock treatments that erased all memory of her previous life

Linda McDonald

Madeleine Smith, a 28-year-old Canadian newscaster, was another Cameron casualty. Madeleine was taken into the operating room for brain surgery. The surgeon drilled a hole through her skull. An instrument was used to make several sweeping incisions through her brain.

While the surgeon worked, Ewen Cameron stood over the young woman, plying her with questions until he was assured the surgeon had achieved the desired result. When Madeleine vacantly stared and could only grunt in response, the surgery ended. Madeleine lived the rest of her life an automaton in the confines of an insane asylum.

Cameron even did all of these things to pregnant women, all the way up to their ninth month.   11

Cameron also tortured patients with isolation and sensory deprivation brainwashing methods.  12, 13

Catholic nuns supplied numerous Canadian orphans as human test subjects for Cameron’s experiments.
They were also used as human test subjects in biological warfare and chemical warfare experiments.   26

Monster

Ewen Cameron

British intelligence instigated behavior modification and mind control research in England, using sadistic monsters like William Sargant and John Rees. British intelligence then instigated the American intelligence agencies to do it – using sadistic monsters like Ewen Cameron.

* * *

The slavemasters wanted to research and develop a method for mind control.
They were looking for an offensive mind control weapon they could use.

To hide that fact they used a cover story that they were researching for a defense against mind control.
They began to issue propaganda that the Russians and Chinese had developed a mind control method.
Their propaganda says the Russian and Chinese special method of mind control is called brainwashing.
It was a lie. The Russians and Chinese had not developed any special mind control methods.

This is what slavemaster propaganda says brainwashing is –

1. isolation
2. food and sleep deprivation
3. physical and mental duress

This is done until the person “breaks” and gives in to the ideas being forced on him.

Look, there is nothing special about this. It is just age-old torture that combines several types of duress.

A person being tortured will say anything you want them to say, so they can stop being tortured.
But in their mind they do not accept the idea being forced on them. They keep their original ideas.

Slavemaster propaganda about brainwashing began in 1949 with the show trial of Cardinal Jozsef Mindszenty.

With a glazed look in his eyes, Mindszenty confessed to a bunch of crimes he did not commit.
The crimes included the theft of Hungary’s crown jewels, and planning a Third World War.

This was used as proof of what Russian mind control could do to people.
This presented the “problem” that “needed solving”.

All of it was a staged farce.

Mindszenty later said he had been subjected to various forms of torture until he agreed to confess.

Jozsef Mindszenty

On 5 April 1950 CIA Project Bluebird was approved.

Bluebird was a continuation of the U.S. Navy Project Chatter which was started in the fall of 1947.
They were trying to find speech-inducing drugs they could use in interrogations.
They wanted to find a drug that would make a person talk and reveal secrets.

Bluebird was also –
investigating the possibility of control of an individual by application of special interrogation techniques
evaluation of offensive uses of unconventional interrogation techniques, including hypnosis and drugs   23, 24 

Dr. Jose Manuel Rodriguez Delgado was brought to the U.S. in 1950. He worked at Yale University where he continued the research of Dr. Hess. Delgado conducted research into direct Electrical Stimulation of the Brain.
He researched the use of pleasure and pain for mind control.

The brain receives and sends electrical impulses to the rest of the body via the nervous system. The brain is a switchboard that receives commands from a Being and it sends out electrical impulses which are control signals that cause something to occur in the body. All of the body’s functions are regulated through the brain.

The Korean War began on 25 June 1950. American pilots were shot down and became Prisoners of War.
They confessed to using germ warfare against the Koreans, which was not true.

Propaganda alleged the Chinese and Russians had developed a method of mind control.
The only thing that actually happened was the Prisoners of War had been tortured.

British intelligence dispensed brainwashing propaganda and falsely attributed it to the Chinese.  14

Lincoln Star – February 29, 1951

The Chinese had no such word. The word brainwashing was already in use in articles written much earlier.
And it had nothing to do with the Chinese.  15

* * *

On 1 June 1951 British, Americans and Canadians met at a secret conference at a Ritz-Carlton in Canada.
They agreed to a joint venture in how to brainwash people – mind control and behavior modification research.

It was a secret meeting to develop an offensive mind control weapon.
They agreed to secret human experimentation on how to break a person’s will.
Members of British intelligence and the CIA were in attendance.    16, 17, 18

Attending the 1 June 1951 meeting were –
Sir Henry T. Tizard, senior scientist from the U.K. Ministry of Defense and MI 6
Dr. Omond Solandt, head of Canada’s Defense Research Board
Dr. Donald O. Hebb, head of Behavioral Research section of Canada’s Defense Research Board
Dr. Caryl Haskins – American CIA
Commander R.J. Williams – American CIA     19

Sir TizardSir Henry T. Tizard

Canada’s Defense Research Board made minutes of the Montreal meeting wherein they state –

Dr. Hebb suggested that an approach based upon the situation of sensory isolation might lead to some clues to answering “the central problem” that interested this covert research coalition: that is

  • ‘confession,’
  • ‘menticide’ [means the systematic effort to undermine and destroy a person’s values and beliefs, as by the use of prolonged interrogation, drugs, torture, etc., and to induce radically different ideas.]
  • ‘intervention in the individual mind,’
  • —together with methods concerned in psychological coercion.

Hebb suggested that by “cutting off all sensory stimulation . . . , the individual could be led into a situation whereby ideas, etc. might be implanted.

In response, Sir Henry concurred, stating that these issues “had become a matter of concern in the U.K.,” and adding that “the methods of psychological coercion . . . had been well developed by the [Medieval] inquisition” (Cooper, 1986, Appendix 21).

… As consensus formed about “research methods and design,” the group adopted Hebb’s suggestion that “experimental isolation in various forms for the production of sensory isolation” might place subjects “in such a position psychologically that they would be susceptible to implantation of new or different ideas.

Canada’s Defense Research Board minutes of the meeting clearly indicate that their priority in backing Hebb’s brainwashing work was not defensive but offensive operations against communist enemies.  20

The CIA’s minutes of the meeting concur, recording that the Montreal group agreed there was “no conclusive evidence” that the Soviets had made anything akin to “revolutionary progress,” and dismissed their interrogation as “remarkably similar . . to the age-old methods.”   20

CIA documents state that the results of the meeting were reported to Dr. William Webster, Chairman of the Research and Development Board.

webster_rdb_montreal_june_1950_coordinate_artichoke_with_british_and_canada

william_webster_1952Dr. William Webster

This is the guy who was overseeing and directing the American mind control research in coordination with the British and Canadian governments. The CIA was not the originator of its research into mind control, Webster was over the CIA and its research into mind control.   21

This meeting is proof of direct British intelligence involvement in the CIA doing mind control research.

Donald Hebb worked with Dr. Ewen Cameron at McGill University. They conducted research to develop an offensive mind control weapon. Starting in 1951 Hebb received about $10,000 a year from the Canadian Defense Research Board to develop the work on sensory deprivation.

Carried on by Hebb’s students, the results were startling: volunteer students placed in sensory isolation for over two to three days became depersonalized and unable to think, and they experienced hallucinations; they were then receptive to attitudinal change.   22

Sensory deprivation has been said to be the most horrible form of torture.

Donald Olding Hebb

The CIA was part of the conspiracy to develop an offensive mind control weapon and it funded further research.

20 August 1951 – CIA Project BLUEBIRD was renamed Project ARTICHOKE.

Artichoke tried to create a mind-controlled killer, who could be programmed to do assassinations.  25
The programming methods included the pain-drugs-hypnosis method, which uses electroshock.

In January 1952 a Project Artichoke memo said –

“can we get control of an individual to the point where he will do our bidding against his will
and even against fundamental laws of nature.”    27

This is a CIA document dated 18 January 1952 –    28

In 1952 the CIA and the Army agreed to develop biological and chemical warfare weapons.
The Army Special Operations Division at Fort Detrick assisted the CIA in doing that.   23

* * *

On 10 April 1953, Allen Dulles, Director of the CIA, spoke on “Brain Warfare” at Princeton University just before he launched Project MK Ultra. In his speech he distinguished two fronts in the “battle for men’s minds” –

a “first front” of mass indoctrination through propaganda
a “second front” of individual brainwashing

Allen Dulles also said –

The Chinese… have given us a term which has come generally to be applied to this treatment of individual minds: “brain washing”.

Actually, the Chinese subjected to Communism “thought reform” techniques experienced two treatments:

  • a “brain washing” which “cleansed the mind of the old and evil thoughts spawned by Imperialists of the West,” and
  • a “brain changing” which implanted the new and glorious thoughts of the Communist Revolution”.

…it is necessary to close off with an impenetrable barrier the area within which the operation is to take place… physical and spiritual barrier… isolated… from the outside world.

One element stands out in all the known cases. It is endless interrogation by teams of brutal interrogators while the victim is being deprived of sleep.

It would seem that the ultimate purpose of this treatment is to break you down completely and deprive you of any will power or private thought or self-esteem…

…they appear to place importance on the parallel appearance of repentance and self-condemnation…   29

There goes Allen Dulles telling propaganda lies to the American public.
The Chinese did not use the word brainwashing.
The Chinese had not developed a special mind control method.

Allen Dulles was accusing the Chinese of the very crime being secretly committed by MI 6 and the CIA.

New York Times 12 April 1953 –

Currents to Brain Produce Changes In Social Behavior

The social behavior of humans and animals can be drastically influenced by electrical stimulation of the brain, a researcher said yesterday. Dr. Jose Delgado… said painless electrical charges to the human brain had evoked such feelings as fear, friendliness and recall of long-forgotten events. In tests on monkeys and cats, there were definite changes in eating and sleeping, fighting and playing and sexual responses, he said.

Dr. Delgado, said his tests would at first, seem to “support the distasteful conclusion that motion, emotion and behavior can be directed by electrical forces and that animals and humans can be controlled like robots by push buttons.”

That is propaganda.

With brain implants they are trying to force action without decision.
They made it work on animals, but it failed miserably when applied to humans.

On 13 April 1953, Allen Dulles approved Project MK-Ultra. MK-Ultra had 149 sub-projects.

MK-Ultra was a secret 25 year and 25 million dollar CIA project – to investigate methods to influence thought, attitude, memory and human behavior. Multiple psychiatrists were involved.

Sidney Gottlieb headed mind control projects MK-Ultra and MK-Search from 13 April 1953 to 10 July 1972.
His real name is Joseph Scheider.

Gottlieb_001

Sidney_Gottlieb_real_name_Joseph_ScheiderUnder MK Ultra drugs such as LSD were tested on unknowing citizens.

Mind control research was shifted between two divisions inside the CIA –

Technical Services Staff (TSS)
Office of Research and Development (ORD)

The CIA sent funding for mind control research through various conduits –

Society for the Investigation of Human Ecology (aka The Human Ecology Fund)
The Geschickter Fund for Medical Research
Scientific Engineering Institute
National Institute of Mental Health
National Institutes of Health
Office of Naval Research

The CIA admitted supporting research into human mind and behavior control at 150 institutions.
They included hospitals, prisons, drug companies, and 44 universities.

Like the Nazis’ experiments, the usual targets were those considered “lesser human beings” such as prostitutes, people with non-white skins, and drug addicts. Thousands of prisoners were also forced to take part, and hospital and mental patients were used without their consent as experiment-fodder for these crazy people.   22, 25, 30, 31, 32

All of this continues in a much more advanced way today.

William Sargant conducted drug experiments at Porton Down.
Men from military mental hospitals and military prisons were used.

Porton Down – Britain’s secret chemical and biological warfare center

In 1953 Dr. Frank Olson worked for the U.S. Army’s biological weapons center at Fort Detrick.
Olson was a biochemist who had his role in preparing anthrax and other biological weapons.

Frank Olson and Sidney Gottlieb were sent to England to observe what William Sargant was doing.
They worked with Sargant, sharing information. The three men became close friends.
They shared with Sargant the latest mind-altering research being done at Fort Detrick.

On each trip they visited Sargant’s department at St. Thomas to study patient records.
They also directly observed what Sargant was doing to people at Porton Down.

Frank Olson was deeply disturbed by what he saw and he was about to tell the public.
Sargant alerted the CIA that Frank Olson was about to become a whistle blower.
Sidney Gottlieb decided to terminate Frank Olson.

On 28 November 1953, Olson was found dead. He had been killed by George White.   33

Harold Wolff was close friends with Allen Dulles. Dulles recruited Wolff for MK Ultra.


Harold Wolff and Lawrence Hinkle worked at Cornell University psychiatry department.
In 1955 Wolff and Hinkle founded the Society for the Investigation of Human Ecology.
It was the primary funding conduit for CIA MK Ultra.
It served to hide that the funds were coming from the CIA.    34, 36

Lawrence B. Hinkle Jr.

Harold Wolff and Lawrence Hinkle headed up extremely harsh research into MK Ultra mind control.   22

Wolf wrote to the CIA saying –

Once he figured out how the human mind really worked, he wrote, he would tell the Agency
“how a man can be made to think, feel, and behave according to the wishes of other men”.  36

The CIA had Air Force Colonel James Monroe act as executive director of the Human Ecology Fund.  35

Starting in 1957, the CIA paid psycho psychiatrist Ewen Cameron $60,000 for mind control research.
It was MK Ultra subproject 68 – the effects upon human behavior of the repetition of verbal signals.  40

Here is the initial CIA document for starting it.


Here is an excerpt from another page of the above Application for Grant, dated January 21, 1957.

 

Look, the best behavior change they got only lasted for two months.

And it took continual electric shocking and continual implanting of a command phrase to get that.
I think that person was showing them what they wanted to see to get out of being further tortured.

In his proposal to the CIA front, Cameron also said he would test curare, the South American arrow poison which, when liberally applied, kills by paralyzing internal body functions. In nonlethal doses, curare causes a limited paralysis which blocks but does not stop these functions. According to his papers, … Cameron injected subjects with curare in conjunction with sensory deprivation, presumably to immobilize them further.

For the “sensory deprivation”, Rubenstein had specially built a “box” in the converted stables directly behind Allan Memorial which is also where the “behavioral laboratory” was. Cameron left one woman in for 35 days, but try as he might, Cameron could not get through to her.

As the aloof psychiatrist wrote in his notes: “Although the patient was prepared by both prolonged sensory isolation (35 days) and by repeated depatterning, and although she received 101 days of positive driving, no favorable results were obtained.”

The Search for the Manchurian Candidate by John Marks

.
Ewen Cameron co-authored an article submitted to the American Psychiatric Association.   41
The article was about sensory deprivation – a torture method they were using for attempted mind control.

The article says –

 Changes tend to disappear within about a day after removal from the area of reduced input.

So, their attempts at behavior modification and mind control did not work.
The effect they sought to create only lasted a day in most people.

Every method of attempted mind control is dependent on your cooperation.
If you don’t cooperate, every method of attempted mind control fails.

The fundamental lie in Dianetics and Scientology is this statement –

“The engram is the single source of aberrations and psychosomatic ills.”

An engram is a mental image picture of an incident containing pain and unconsciousness.

The lie is that command phrases in engrams make a person act irrational or aberrated.
The way this is being presented is false and it omits stating what is actually going on.

So, during your period of pain and unconsciousness someone says “kill all children”.
After regaining consciousness and living life again you get the idea to kill all children.
The part that is omitted here, is that you have to decide to accept that idea.
You can decide to reject the idea to “kill all children” and therefore not do that.

Thus the idea about the engram causing irrational behavior goes out the window as being untrue.

This idea about engram command phrases – just like in hypnotism, you have to make it work.

It is your say-so that has all the power. No past incident has sway over you, unless you say-so.
That says something ugly that Hubbard tried to get you to agree engram phrases control you.

Want to know what mental health really is?
That you do not agree to that idea!
Therein lies your sanity and your freedom.

And not agreeing to that idea has another benefit – it does not cost you any money, it’s free.

In 1959 MK Ultra subproject 94 began – attempt to control human behavior by electrical signals to the brain.

They first tested this on animals with the aim of being able to do it to humans.   42

Dr. Jose Delgado conducted research into direct Electrical Stimulation of the Brain (ESB).
Delgado conducted a research project of stimulating the brains of monkeys.
The monkeys had brain implants which acted as a transmitter and a receiver.

The brain implants transmitted brain information to a computer. The monkeys also had their moods and movements controlled by receiving commands to the brain from the computer.

Jose Delgado, his wife Caroline Delgado, monkey with brain implant

Threatening attitude and aggressive behavior produced by brain stimulation

Delgado reported that he was able to elicit a range of emotions from his subjects by using small implants located in parts of the brain that then received their energy from ‘remote control’ FM radio waves. The stimoceiver, invented by Dr. Delgado, consists of wires running from strategic points in the brain to a radio receiver/transmitter located entirely under the skin. Through this device, Delgado was able to stimulate various emotions, sexual arousal, pleasure, specific body motions, and behavior – all with the turn of a knob.

New York Times article 17 May 1965 –      43

‘Matador’ with Radio Stops Wired Bull

…sunlight poured into the ring, as the bull bore down on the unarmed “matador” – a scientist who had never before faced a fighting bull. But the charging animal’s horns never reached the man. Moments before that could happen, Dr. Jose Delgado pressed a button on a small radio transmitter in his hand and the bull braked to a halt. Then he pressed another button on the transmitter, and the bull obediently turned to the right and trotted away.

The bull was obeying commands in his brain that were being called forth by electrical stimulation – by the radio signals – of certain regions in which fine wires had been implanted the day before.

The experiment, conducted last year in Spain by Dr. Delgado, was probably the most spectacular demonstration ever performed of the deliberate modification of animal behaviour through external control of the brain.

He has been able to “play” monkeys and cats like little electronic toys that yawn, hide, fight, play, mate and go to sleep on command.

Delgado halts a charging bull – Spain 1964

Jose Delgado authored a book: Physical Control Of The Mind: Toward A Psychocivilized Society. He wrote:

Physical control of brain functions is a demonstrated fact… it is even possible to create and follow intentions, the development of thoughts and visual experiences. By electrical stimulation of specific cerebral structures, movements can be induced by radio command, hostility may appear and disappear, sexual behaviour may be changed, and memory, emotions, and the thinking process may be influenced by remote control…

In 1968 they tried brain implants on humans…

Nexus magazine #28, January/February 1992 –

In July of 1968, a CIA team flew into Saigon to experiment on three Vietcong prisoners at Bien Hoa Hospital, at Bien Hoa Air Force Base which is 22 miles Northeast of Saigon.

Working in an enclosed compound, the team’s neurosurgeon and neurologist inserted tiny electrodes into their brains. Behaviorists then experimented on the men, arming them with knives and trying to induce violet behavior in them using the direct electrical stimulation. After a week of experimentation which failed to incite the men to attack each other, they were shot dead and their bodies were burned.

Bien Hoa AFB – 1968

MK Ultra Subproject 119 was a review that included a summary of existing information on
“Techniques of activation of the human organism by remote electronic means.”

It is a fact that they tested brain implants on humans, not just on animals.
They successfully controlled animals but when they tested it on humans it failed miserably.

When they tried brain implants on humans it failed miserably.

Every method of attempted mind control is dependent on your cooperation.
If you don’t cooperate, every method of attempted mind control fails.

* * *

Statements made by Delgado were entered into the Congressional record on 24 February 1972 –     45

We need a program of psychosurgery for political control of our society. The purpose is physical control of the mind. Everyone who deviates from the given norm can be surgically mutilated. The individual may think that the most important reality is his own existence, but this is only his personal point of view. This lacks historical perspective. Man does not have the right to develop his own mind. We must electronically control the brain. Someday armies and generals will be controlled by electric stimulation of the brain.

Congressional Record, No. 26, Vol. 118 February 24, 1972

 

Delgado said that the day would come when brain control could be turned over to non-human operators,
by establishing two-way communication between the implanted brain and a computer.

From 1977 Senate hearings, section on “truth drugs in interrogation” :

Most broadly, there is evidence that drugs have least effect on well-adjusted individuals with good defenses and good emotional control, and that anyone who can withstand the stress of competent interrogation in the waking state can do so in narcosis. The essential resources for resistance thus appear to lie within the individual.

The essential resources for resistance thus appear to lie within the individual.
See? They know you are in control, not them.

* * *

In summary, attempted Mind Control by –

Control of Information – Failed
Propaganda – Failed
Group Dynamics – Failed
Brainwashing – Failed
Drugs – Failed
Pain-Drug-Hypnosis – Failed
Brain Implants – Failed
Covert Microwave Messages – Failed

In all mind control techniques they are in the back of the bus, they are not in the driver’s seat. All of their mind control techniques are completely dependent upon you deciding to cooperate. If you do not cooperate, they fail.
You are always in control of your thoughts, they never are.

Cecil Rhodes… left his fortune to form a secret society, which was to devote itself to the preservation and expansion of the British Empire. …this secret society was created by Rhodes and… Lord Milner, and continues to exist to this day.

This society has been known… as the Round Table… I have chosen to call it the Milner Group.

Alfred Milner was able to dominate this Group… It is doubtful if Milner could have formed his Group without assistance… the Cecil Bloc gave him the political influence without which his ideas could easily have died in the seed…

The Milner Group could never have been built up by Milner’s own efforts. He had no political power or even influence. The power that was utilized by Milner and his Group was really the power of the Cecil family and its allied families…

The Subconcious Mind

[In the below, Collier quotes Rev. William T Walsh, Rector of St. Luke’s Church, New York City, in his book “Scientific Spiritual Healing.”]

The subconscious mind directs all the vital processes of your body.

[In the below, Collierquotes Dr. Geo. C. Pitzer]

The subconscious mind is a distinct entity. …it has absolute control over all the functions… of the body. Nutrition, waste, all secretions and excretions, the action of the heart in the circulation of the blood, the lungs in respiration or breathing, and all cell life, cell changes and development, are positively under the complete control of the subconscious mind.

We call this the ‘soul mind.’ It is the living soul.

8. In 1947, Cameron published a book: “Remembering” in: Nervous and Mental Disease Monographs (No. 72).

Cameron notes that defects in memory occur with therapy – therapy defined as metrazol, ECT, and insulin treatments.

Ewen Cameron authored a book in 1950 – General Psychotherapy: Dynamics and Procedures.
The book is proof that Cameron was doing Pain-Drugs-Hypnosis behavior modification before 1950.
PDH means command phrases are implanted while the patient is drugged and in pain from electroshock.

In the Preface of the book Cameron talks about using magnetic tape recordings for therapy.

In Chapter 10 Cameron talks about using drugs in combination with Electro Convulsive Therapy.

On page 239 Cameron describes his use of nitrous oxide repeated several times in 15 minutes and producing convulsions which he then immediately follows with trying to implant the person while they are under such obvious physical stress.

He tries to prove the value of this on page 240 with a case history, and on pages 248 and 249 he talks about doing the same thing just after ECT when the patient is just returning to consciousness, having literally just died to all extents and purposes.

He also describes the use of drugs like Benzedrine, dexadrine; desoxyn to produce the same marginalized physical state to then conduct his psychotherapy under, he is describing the value of recording and play back as part of this implanting when the person is in that weakened state after ECT, etc.

He calls all these methods psychotherapy.

TB: …in 1959, I became the junior member of Cameron’s research team on “psychic driving”.

The idea behind Cameron’s research was that by wiping out all memories, one would also wipe out pathological patterns in the brain, and one might be able to rebuild the psyche anew. We also explored the possibility that it might be sufficient just to disorganize memories. For wiping out memories, we used regressive ECT, which Cameron referred to as “depatterning”; for disorganizing memories, we used psychomimetic drugs and sensory isolation, and for rebuilding, repetition of verbal signal therapy, which he referred to as “psychic driving.”

In our “sleep room”, for example, where most of the research was done, in one bed a patient was treated by our team with regressive ECT, and in the next bed a patient was treated with “anaclitic therapy” by another research team, in which, grown ups were mothered like babies. For me, still pretty much a foreigner in this new world, both treatments were rather strange, but the rational for our experiment was at least as sound as the treatment used by the psychoanalytic group. In fact, we learned from our experiments that some patients with schizophrenia were not affected by sensory isolation, and also that wiped out obsessive-compulsive patterns re-emerge much sooner than memory returns.

Dr. D.

Consequently, in the words of a later Canadian inquiry by George Cooper, QC, “a high-level meeting took place at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Montreal on June 1, 1951.

Attending were Sir Henry T. Tizard, the venerable senior scientist from the U.K. Ministry of Defense; Dr. Omond Solandt, head of Canada’s Defense Research Board (DRB); Dr. Donald O. Hebb, head of the Board’s Behavioral Research and chair of Psychology at McGill; and two Americans, Dr. Caryl Haskins and Commander R.J. Williams. These latter two were identified, in a “handwritten note” found in Board files, as “CIA”.

Canada’s Defence Research Board made minutes of the Montreal meeting. Author Alfred McCoy tells us –

As noted in the Board’s minutes of the Montreal meeting, “Dr. Hebb suggested that an approach based upon the situation of sensory isolation might lead to some clues” to answering “the central problem” that interested this covert research coalition: that is

  • “ ‘confession,’
  • ‘menticide’ [means the systematic effort to undermine and destroy a person’s values and beliefs, as by the use of prolonged interrogation, drugs, torture, etc., and to induce radically different ideas.]
  • ‘intervention in the individual mind,’
  • —together with methods concerned in psychological coercion.”

Hebb suggested that by “cutting off all sensory stimulation . . .  the individual could be led into a situation whereby ideas, etc. might be implanted.

In response, Sir Henry concurred, stating that these issues “had become a matter of concern in the U.K.,” and adding that “the methods of psychological coercion . . . had been well developed by the [Medieval] inquisition” (Cooper, 1986, Appendix 21).

As consensus formed about “research methods and design,” the group adopted Hebb’s suggestion that “experimental isolation in various forms for the production of sensory isolation” might place subjects “in such a position psychologically that they would be susceptible to implantation of new or different ideas.

Despite the Board’s later claims to the contrary, its minutes indicate clearly that their priority in backing Hebb’s brainwashing work was not defensive but offensive operations against communist enemies.

The CIA’s own minutes concur, recording that the Montreal group agreed there was “no conclusive evidence” that the Soviets had made anything akin to “revolutionary progress,” and dismissed their interrogation as “remarkably similar . . to the age-old methods.”

Behind closed doors, therefore, the defensive pretense evaporated, and these cold warriors decided to pursue control over human consciousness for offensive “cold war operations”: that is, ideological conversion and coerced interrogation (Cooper, 1986, pp. 31–32; Marks, 1979, pp. 29–31;CIA, 6 June 1951 and 9 July 1951).

This is the guy who was overseeing and directing the American mind control research in coordination with the British and Canadian governments. The CIA was not the originator of its research into mind control, Webster was over the CIA and its research into mind control.

This meeting is proof of direct British intelligence involvement in the CIA conducting mind control research.

Regarding Tizard being MI 6 – The origins of the SIS (MI6) scientific intelligence section lay in the creation of the Committee for the Scientific Survey of Air Defence, under scientist Sir Henry Tizard. The ‘Tizard Committee’ began meeting in secret in January 1935.

Project CHATTER was a Navy program that began in the fall of 1947. Responding to reports of “amazing results” achieved by the Soviets in using “truth drugs,” the program focused on the identification and testing of such drugs for use in interrogations and in the recruitment of agents. The research included laboratory experiments on animals and human subjects involving Anabasis aphylla, scopolamine, and mescaline in order to determine their speech-inducing qualities.

The project expanded substantially during the Korean War, and ended shortly after the war, in 1953.

2. Project BLUEBIRD/ARTICHOKE

The earliest of the CIA’s major programs involving the use of chemical and biological agents, Project BLUEBIRD, was approved by the Director in 1950. Its objectives were:

(a) discovering means of conditioning personnel to prevent unauthorized extraction of information from them by known means, (b) investigating the possibility of control of an individual by application of special interrogation techniques, (c) memory enhancement, and (d) establishing defensive means for preventing hostile control of Agency personnel. [4]

As a result of interrogations conducted overseas during the project, another goal was added — the evaluation of offensive uses of unconventional interrogation techniques, including hypnosis and drugs. In August 1951, the project was renamed ARTICHOKE. Project ARTICHOKE included in-house experiments on interrogation techniques, conducted “under medical and security controls which would ensure that no damage was done to individuals who volunteer for the experiments. [5] Overseas interrogations utilizing a combination of sodium pentothal and hypnosis after physical and psychiatric examinations of the subjects were also part of ARTICHOKE.

  • [4] CIA memorandum to the Select Committee, “Behavioral Drugs and Testing,” 2/11/75.
  • [5] Memorandum from Robert Taylor, O/DD/P to the Assistant Deputy (Inspection and Security) and Chief of the Medical Staff, 3/22/52.

The Office of Scientific Intelligence (OSI), which studied scientific advances by hostile powers, initially led BLUEBIRD/ARTICHOKE efforts. In 1952, overall responsibility for ARTICHOKE was transferred from OSI to the Inspection and Security Office (I&SO), predecessor to the present Office of Security. The CIA’s Technical Services and Medical Staffs were to be called upon as needed; OSI would retain liaison function with other government agencies. [6] The change in leadership from an intelligence unit to an operating unit apparently reflected a change in emphasis; from the study of actions by hostile powers to the use, both for offensive and defensive purposes, of special interrogation techniques — primarily hypnosis and truth serums.

Representatives from each Agency unit involved in ARTICHOKE met almost monthly to discuss their progress. These discussions included the planning of overseas interrogations [8] as well as further experimentation in the U.S.

Information about project ARTICHOKE after the fall of 1953 is scarce. The CIA maintains that the project ended in 1956, but evidence suggests that Office of Security and Office of Medical Services use of “special interrogation” techniques continued for several years thereafter.

  • [8] “Progress Report, Project ARTICHOKE.” 1/12/53.

3. MKNAOMI

MKNAOMI was another major CIA program in this area. In 1967, the CIA summarized the purposes of MKNAOMI:

(a) To provide for a covert support base to meet clandestine operational requirements.

(b) To stockpile severely incapacitating and lethal materials for the specific use of TSD [Technical Services Division].

(c) To maintain in operational readiness special and unique items for the dissemination of biological and chemical materials.

(d) To provide for the required surveillance, testing, upgrading, and evaluation of materials and items in order to assure absence of defects and complete predictability of results to be expected under operational conditions. [9]

Under an agreement reached with the Army in 1952, the Special Operations Division (SOD) at Fort Detrick was to assist CIA in developing, testing, and maintaining biological agents and delivery systems. By this agreement, CIA acquired the knowledge, skill, and facilities of the Army to develop biological weapons suited for CIA use.  24


Note:
the above Appendix A (ref #24) also contains a great deal of information concerning the death of Frank Olson who had been experimented on with LSD – ordered by Sydney Gottlieb. It also included the fact that the Army was testing LSD on unwitting persons in foreign countries.

These experiments, designed to evaluate potential intelligence uses of LSD, were known collectively as “Material Testing Program EA 1729.” Two projects of particular interest conducted as part of these experiments, “THIRD CHANCE” and “DERBY HAT”, involved the administration of LSD to unwitting subjects in Europe and the Far East.

25. THE SEARCH FOR THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE by John Marks

26. In 1944 Franklin Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, MacKenzie King and Allen Dulles met at the Quebec Conference to iron out details of a secret agreement by which Quebec’s orphan population would be placed at the disposal of the British and American military in their top secret program of chemical and biological warfare weapons development. Some of these experiments involved psychosurgery, e.g. lobotomies, which witnesses like Silvio Day say were performed on orphans.

Quebec Ombudsman, Daniel Jacoby, report of January 22, 1997 –

…laid out in 1944 at the Quebec Conference, the year Maurice Duplessis, re-elected as Quebec premier, sat at the table with Roosevelt, Churchill, MacKenzie King and Allen Dulles, to iron out details of a clandestine agreement by which Quebec’s orphan population would be placed at the disposal of the British and American military in their top secret program of chemical and biological warfare weapons development, some of which was based downriver at Grosse Ile. Some of these experiments involved psychosurgery, e.g. lobotomies, which witnesses like Silvio Day say were performed on orphans.

In 1978, another sampling of 200 patients released from psychiatric hospitals confirmed that 80% of them had been admitted at the request of foundling homes or orphanages, the very institutions charged with their care.

A number of those who were institutionalized and wrongfully diagnosed as mentally ill underwent treatments designed for the genuinely ill: electroshock therapy, lobotomies, prolonged solitary confinement, ice baths, chaining, force feeding, straightjackets. With the advent of neuroleptics, these treatments were replaced by medication, what is known today as “chemical restraint.”

…A number of people also claim to have suffered physical and sexual abuse. In the first instance, common allegations include years of recurrent beating and slapping, being tied to the bed spring for bed wetting, unjustified confinement to a cell-sometimes for months or even years-ice baths, regular subjection to restraining measures (straightjackets, neuroleptics …), electroshock treatment, etc. Allegations of sexual abuse include sodomy, sexual interference, forced sexual favors, etc.

33. Inside the Sleep Room by Gordon Thomas –

At military bases in Britain… Sargant conducted drug-related experiments on so-called “military volunteers.”

American intelligence sent observers to monitor these tests. Among them was one of the CIA’s senior biochemists, Frank Olson, and Sidney Gottlieb, the overall head of the [CIA] MK ULTRA program.

The three men became close friends. On each trip they visited Sargant’s department at St. Thomas to study patient records. They also shared with Sargant the latest mind-altering research being carried out at Fort Detrick, Maryland.

Ultimately, as we shall see, these connections led to the 1953 murder of Frank Olson… Sargant had played a key role in alerting the CIA that one of its chief officers, Frank Olson, had been about to become a whistle-blower.

Shortly after 2:30 a.m. on November 28, 1953, Olson’s body was discovered, bloodied and broken, on the pavement of Manhattan’s Seventh Avenue, clothed only in underpants and a T-shirt.

The decision to terminate Frank Olson had been made by Gottlieb after Sargant had listened to Olson’s admissions in London in early November 1953 that he had taken part in lethal experiments on German nationals in post-war Europe.

Sargant, who had regarded Frank Olson as “steady as a rock”, had told his colleagues in British intelligence that he feared Olson was about to go public. Shortly afterward, at a CIA safe house at Deep Creek Lodge in western Maryland, Olson had joined other CIA researchers – ironically, to discuss the use of drugs like mescaline for further experiments in Europe.

CIA operative George White had acted as one of the hosts for the gathering. At some point during the evening he reportedly slipped 70 micrograms of LSD into Olson’s drink. Olson quickly became “sullen and disturbed.” A CIA scientist, Richard Lashbrook, escorted him to New York “to take care of him”…

White was one of the hit men the agency used for what it called “wet jobs.”

He had been killed by George White.

Note –
James Starrs, a forensic scientist at George Washington University, led a team of experts to determine the cause of death. After Olson’s body was exhumed in 1994, the team found extensive skull fractures – far more than would have been possible from simply hitting the pavement. The most likely scenario, Starrs concluded, was that Olson had been smashed in the head with a hammer or similar blunt instrument, then his body was thrown through the window.

34. Harold Wolff and Lawrence Hinkle were founders of Society for the Investigation of Human Ecology

35. Shortly after the show trial of Cardinal Josef Mindszenty, a work group was set up by Fred Williams of the U.S. Air Force. It was called the Air Force Psychological Warfare Division and was located at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Alabama. The group was a clearing house for a larger network, some of the members of which were –

Colonel James Monroe (who later joined the CIA)
Albert Biderman, a sociologist
Robert J. Lifton and Herman Sander, air force psychiatrists
Harold Wolff and Lawrence Hinkle at Cornell
John Gittinger, CIA psychologist
Herbert Zimmer    22

Colonel James Monroe, one-time head of the Psychological Warfare Research Division of the Air Force.

James Monroe had multiple CIA connections and oversaw the Air Force’s comprehensive study of Korean War prisoners, as well as personally supervising the work of Dr. Ewen Cameron.

He is also mentioned in a PDF my wife found of the actual report of the Secretary of Defense’s Advisory Committee on Prisoners of War from August 1955.

By the time of this report, he is now a Lieutenant Colonel and is described under the heading of consulting with the Defense Advisory committee as: “Defense Prisoner Officer, Office of the Director of Plans.”

You will notice that this report (and study) was “completed” prior to Monroe assuming his responsibilities together with Harold Wolff in organizing the Society for the Investigation of Human Ecology.

36. Society for the Investigation of Human Ecology was a funding conduit for CIA mind control research.

  • Ecology – The science of the relationships between organisms and their environments. The study of the interaction of people with their environment.

The term “human ecology” had been coined by Harold Wolff.

CIA Document defining Human Ecology, estimated date January 1, 1954 titled Protocol…Re: Human Ecology.

.

1954 – Harold G. Wolff begins proposals for what would become the Society for the Investigation of Human Ecology. He was already involved with Project QK-Hilltop at Cornell Medical College. Project QK-Hilltop was created to study brainwashing techniques. It was a spinoff from James Monroe’s group at Maxwell AFB.   35

  • Note: In general, MK Ultra subprojects 48 and 60 provided the basic documents on the Society for the Investigation of Human Ecology.

CIA Document dated March 5 1956 (titled Memorandum, consisting of multiple pages) made clear that work had been going on in this area since 1954, and was INDEED on the subject of brainwashing and interrogation techniques.

Let’s look at some more documents. The first one concerns using it as a covert funding mechansim.

  • 2 – It will provide a covert mechanism for making contact with scientists in our fields of interest…

1955 – Harold G. Wolff officially organized the Society for the Investigation of Human Ecology.

Wolff was personally recruited by Allen Dulles to direct the Society’s covertly funded programmes to identify effective methods of persuasion and interrogation… 37, 38

Check out those eyes….so cold.

COLD_EYES_-_an_MKULTRA_doctor

Wolff asked that the CIA provide him with all its information on interrogation and intimidation:

“…including threats, coercion, imprisonment, deprivation, humiliation, torture, “brainwashing,” “black psychiatry,” hypnosis and combinations of these, with or without chemical agents. We will assemble, collate, analyze and assimilate this information and will then undertake experimental investigations designed to develop new techniques of offensive/defensive intelligence use… Potentially useful secret drugs (and various brain damaging procedures) will be similarly tested in order to ascertain the fundamental effect upon human brain function and upon the subject’s mood ….Where any of the studies involve potential harm to the subject, we expect the Agency to make available suitable subjects and a proper place for the performance of necessary experiments.”  22

Lawrence Hinkle was Harold Wolff’s partner in crimes against humanity. You can see him live in this video.

Lawrence_E._Hinkle_-_1979Lawrence Hinkle

Underneath the cover of the Society for the Investigation of Human Ecology, Harold Wolff and Lawrence Hinkle headed up extremely harsh research into mind control.   22

The Search For The Manchurian Candidate by John Marks –

Wolff pressed upon the CIA his idea that to understand human behavior – and how governments might manipulate it – one had to study man in relationship to his total environment. Calling this field “human ecology,” Wolff drew into it the disciplines of psychology, medicine, sociology, and anthropology. … Once he figured out how the human mind really worked, he wrote, he would tell the Agency “how a man can be made to think, ‘feel,’ and behave according to the wishes of other men”.

Following the Soviet model, he felt he could help his patients by putting them into an isolated, disoriented state – from which it would be easier to create new behavior patterns. Although Russian-style isolation cells were impractical at Cornell, Wolff hoped to get the same effect more quickly through sensory deprivation.

He told the Agency that sensory-deprivation made the patient “more receptive to the suggestions of the psychotherapist.” He proposed keeping his patients in sensory deprivation until they “show an increased desire to talk and to escape from the procedure. Then, he said, doctors could “utilize material from their own past experience in order to create psychological reactions within them.”

Here’s what the actual document said that Marks is talking about –

The Human Ecology group moved out of its East 78th Street townhouse to new headquarters in Forest Hills, Queens.

Agency officials hired a staff of four led by Lieutenant Colonel James Monroe

Sid Gottlieb and the TSS hierarchy in Washington still made the major decisions, but Monroe and the Society staff, whose salaries the Agency paid, took over the Society’s dealings with the outside world and the monitoring of several hundred thousand dollars a year in research projects. Monroe personally supervised dozens of grants, including Dr. Ewen Cameron’s brainwashing work in Montreal. Soon the Society was flourishing as an innovative foundation, attracting research proposals from a wide variety of behavioral scientists…  39

James Monroe lied directly about the source of the Society’s money, claiming it came from rich New York doctors and Texas millionaires who gave it for tax purposes. That was his standard cover story with “unwitting” grantees.

Harold Wolff and Lawrence Hinkle presented their findings to the CIA in 1956.

Originally written as a report for the Technical Services Division of the CIA in 1956, it was published in 1956 in a major psychiatric journal, the Archives of Neurology and Psychiatry, under the title, Communist Interrogation and Indoctrination of “Enemies of the State”: Analysis of Methods Used by the Communist State Police (A Special Report).

Hinkle and Wolff revealed that it was not drugs or bizarre tortures that resulted in confession; it was psychological warfare techniques that produced ANXIETY to such an extreme degree that “normal coping devices” could not prevail.

Then the torturers would present themselves as “friend and saviour.”

Hinkle and Wolff’s “revelations” of 1956, inspired the military and intelligence services to greatly expand their plans for the study of mind control.

Wolff now submits proposals for further research (an extension of Sub-project 48) and this was MK Ultra subproject 61, a $74,000 project approved by Gottlieb in early 1956.

This document shows its purpose.

Harold_Wolff_mkultra_61_17461_image_1.

This document is on Black Vault’s MKULTRA archives disk 4, folder 17461, image #1.

In 1957, Harold Wolff had established that:

isolation
sleep deprivation
nonspecific threats
depersonalization
inadequate diets

placed enormous stress on individuals. As compared to Soviet techniques, Wolff and Hinkle reported, their techniques took six days rather than four to six weeks. The main factor was and I quote: “the greater intensity of the sleep deprivation and particularly of the isolation methods.”

Sleep Deprivation is the number one tool used for breaking a person.
Hence the interest in machines that can disrupt this – even at a distance.

40. The CIA funded psychiatrist Ewen Cameron to do mind control research. It was MK Ultra subproject 68.

All the documents filed under “68″ at The Black Vault, are on disk 4 in the folder numbered 17468.

These scanned images of declassified MKUltra documents are all also available at the Internet Archive using the same numbering system. This was not easy to track down so I thought I should provide this backup version just in case something should happen with black vault’s website.

The first one I’d like to take up is doc/image number 48 of this particular 17468 collection.

At the top you have January 21, 1957, but in point 2 it says that this “research” of the effects on human behavior of the repetition of verbal signals “have been under study…since June 1953.” That is a lie, because Cameron wrote a book in 1950 which shows he was doing this method of behavior modification prior to 1950.

Here is an excerpt from another page of the above Application for Grant, dated January 21, 1957.

MK Ultra subproject 94 is found on black vault cd #1, the 17497 document series.

The proposal for subproject 94 occurs on 7 May 1959. The proposal states the ultimate aim of subproject 94 is to use Electrical Stimulation of the Brain on humans. The CIA funding for the subproject is sent through The Society for The Investigation of Human Ecology.

My wife tracked down information concerning MK Ultra subproject 94 – which I don’t think had been known before.

From her Brotherhood Series, Part 5A

Next up on CD #1, is one of the document series that I figured who was involved in this particular dark (top secret) MKULTRA sub-project.

Just to recap, these documents are from Black vault’s website that has a complete listing of declassified MKUltra documents. Using Black Vault’s layout, the following documents are on cd #1 main directory.

This is sub-project #94, which was research initially using dogs and other animals, with goals of identifying brain areas, implanting micro-electrodes directly in those brain areas, and then controlling brain action by remote-control, with the ultimate goal of human application.

I figured out that this involved a company called Panoramic Research, which one of the heads was private citizen Woodrow “Woody” Wilson Bledsoe, and he was accompanied by his friend Iben Browning. I have never seen anything linking these two with this particular MK ULTRA subproject.

Dr. Colin Ross is THE ONLY source that I originally found that connects MK Ultra subproject 94 with Panoramic Research. Colin wrote a book called Bluebird: Deliberate Creation of Multiple Personality By Psychiatrists [Manitou Communications, Inc., 2000, which was reissued as The CIA Doctors: Human Rights Violations by American Psychiatrists in 2006.]

Pages 326,328, and 330 discuss MK Ultra subproject #94, here’s a quote:

Most MK-ULTRA research concerned biological, chemical, or hypnotic means of behavioral control, but Contract 94 (classified Top Secret) with Bio-Research, Inc., and Panoramic Research, Inc., in 1959 was for “Brain stimulation studies – remote control of animal behavior”;

David Price published an article in Anthropology Today, (Vol 23 No 3, June 2007) that has a chart of Human Ecology grants from 1960 to 1963. Price’s chart shows Panoramic Research getting an 80,000 dollar contract, but has no connection to anyone’s name.

David Price’s chart:

My wife pieced all this together and figured out who was involved in this particular subproject.

This was the key:

A memorial from the University of Texas:

Panoramic Research, Inc.

In 1960, Woody, [Woodrow Wilson Bledsoe] along with Iben Browning and Lloyd Lockingen, left Sandia to start Panoramic Research, Inc. (PRI), in Palo Alto, California. The majority of the work involved AI-related contracts from the U.S. Department of Defense and various intelligence agencies.

We were constantly, repeatedly, searching for, proposing and trying out ideas which we hoped would “move the world.” That was one of the first AI groups before the term “Artificial Intelligence” came into use (Bledsoe 1976).

So… in 1960, just after the proposal for MK Ultra subproject 94 in 1959, Woody Bledsoe hotfoots it out to Palo Alto where Stanford Research Institute is located, and starts up Panoramic Research.

Bledsoe was there at SRI just in time for the CIA projects of Willis Harmon, Gregory Bateson, and Al Stolaroff’s second-generation LSD testing to begin it’s initial preparatory stages.

Woodrow Wilson “Woody” Bledsoe

Woodrow__Woody__Wilson_Bledsoe

Bledsoe already had top secret clearance because he had worked with Sandia, a Department of Defense contractor, doing nuclear weapons research starting in 1953. This is also where he met Iben Browning and they became friends.

Put that together with this, from David Price:

See how many other grants Browning and Bledsoe also had?

And now you know that Bledsoe and Browning (and Lockingen) were involved with the creation of Panoramic Research, and that they went to SRI territory – Palo Alto.

Note:
Stanford’s property and buildings sort of spans across both Palo Alto and Menlo Park, with basically one major street being a separation point between the two “towns”.

And now you know that besides multiple other grants being given them as individuals, there was also MK Ultra subproject 94 that they were working on, which happens to be exactly what Delgado was doing – almost word for word.

For much more about these two companies (BioResearch and Panoramic) see my wife’s article Brotherhood Series, Part 5A.

45. There was an article that said Jose Delgado told Congress –

We need a program of psychosurgery for political control of our society. The purpose is physical control of the mind. Everyone who deviates from the given norm can be surgically mutilated. The individual may think that the most important reality is his own existence, but this is only his personal point of view. This lacks historical perspective. Man does not have the right to develop his own mind. We must electronically control the brain. Someday armies and generals will be controlled by electric stimulation of the brain.

Testimony of Jose Delgado – Congressional Record, No. 26, Vol. 118 February 24, 1974

Jose Delgado himself never told that to Congress. Delgado did make those statements but not to Congress.
Another person entered those Delgado statements into the Congressional record on 24 February 1972.
It is a compilation of quotes, taken from different writings by Delgado, each one is accurate.

Several of these statements were taken from Delgado’s book – Physical Control of the Mind.
You can verify the statements in Dr. Peter Breggins book The Return of Lobotomy and Psychosurgery.

Jose Delgado was interviewed in person by Cabinet Magazine, in 2001.

From the bottom of the page:

José M.R. Delgado, Congressional Record, nr. 26, vol. 118, 1974.
* Erratum: Since publishing this article in Cabinet #2, Spring 2001, it has come to our attention that Delgado did not in fact testify before Congress on that date. The quote in question was actually a compilation of statements from Delgado’s various publications, which were accurately cited in an article by Dr. Peter R. Breggins, The Return of Lobotomy and Psychosurgery. It was this article that was presented to Congress on 24 February 1972 (not 1974 as stated in the article). We regret the error.
