The Military’s Invasive Mind Control and Other Sick Experimentation

There was an interesting caller to Coast to Coast AM with Richard Syrett early this morning. The call was during the 4-4:30 AM period (Eastern), during their last hour.

The caller said he was a U.S. military veteran and that he participated in experimentation on others, I think mainly on other U.S. soldiers (although it might also have involved civilians). The experimentation involved mind control, such as “MK-Ultra” and so on, including microchip implants.

Richard Syrett asked him if he volunteered for the project and the caller said that he had volunteered for the military, but that participation in the experimentation project was not voluntary. The caller said that some of the things done to subjects were extremely invasive, even horrifying. He said that if a subject actually died that the military would make up “fairy tales” when informing the families of victims of their death. The caller emphasized that the experiments were really criminal in nature, criminal acts against others.

Regarding the microchip implants, the caller said that even included implanting in the eyes, so that “whatever you see, they can see, too…”

Now, all that does not surprise me, given what we already know about the CIA and military’s history of experimenting on their fellow humans. In my view, it would take a really sick, psychopathic individual to get involved in such invasive, criminal acts against others, for any reason. (Like the TSA, for example.)

This Wikipedia page details human experimentation on innocents by Americans, for “medical research,” or for military purposes. The U.S. military experimented on troops with mustard gas and other dangerous chemicals, and the victims were categorized by race and ethnicity, including black, Japanese and Puerto Rican Americans. See the U.S. military’s “Project 112” and its drug experimentation.

Here is an article on whether it was the U.S. military and its experimental vaccine that may have been responsible for many deaths that were blamed on Spanish flu. And an article on the CIA poisoning a whole town with LSD in a massive mind control experiment.

The caller to Coast to Coast emphasized the mind control stuff. It is no shock to me now, that and the other extremely invasive crimes inflicted on unsuspecting victims, in the name of “experimentation.”

The science of “killology” is part of military training now, in which the conscience is bypassed in order to get the soldiers to shoot to kill without thinking, without considering the moral or immoral aspect of killing innocent human beings. So, I assume if they can reflexively kill without a conscience, then it should be of no surprise that they could inflict other forms of abuse, torture or otherwise invasiveness on victims, including on their own fellow comrades, or civilians.

But if you are interested in hearing from a military vet his experience in participating in the military’s mind control experiments and other invasive experimentation, then try to find that segment of Coast to Coast AM mentioned at the top.

Donald Trump and Regime Change in Venezuela

Jacob Hornberger has this very frank and honest post about the indifference toward the people of Venezuela shown by Donald Trump and his national security handlers. The one thing that Trump and John Bolton and Mike Pompeo really seem to care about is regime change, even if it means large numbers of civilian casualties throughout Venezuela.

Hornberger points out many of the past regime change ops imposed by U.S. bureaucrats, in Chile, Iraq, and Guatemala. U.S. President George H.W. Bush’s war on Iraq in 1991 and sanctions and no-fly zones led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians in Iraq by the year 2000. And these U.S. bureaucrats didn’t even succeed in ousting Saddam Hussein from Iraq. So, there was no regime change, only the mass murders of innocent civilians. Then Bush’s son, George W. Bush started a new war on Iraq (that was really a continuation of the earlier war on Iraq), which caused the deaths of many hundreds of thousands more innocent civilians in Iraq.

And the bumbling Bushes actually did finally get their regime change in Iraq during the mid-2000s ousting Saddam Hussein. But they replaced the Iraqi regime with a new government that showed obedience to the U.S. government, albeit a sharia law theocracy that didn’t exist prior to the interventions.

Hornberger didn’t mention Iran in his post, although he has mentioned this aspect many times previously. The CIA initiated a coup on the leader of Iran in 1953, followed by the new Shah-led government in Iran that did what U.S. bureaucrats wanted them to do. Throughout the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s, the U.S. government and CIA continued to support the Shah’s totalitarian SAVAK police state, which led to the Iranian Revolution of 1979 and the taking of American hostages in Iran. The coup and the Shah/CIA’s police state contributed to the radicalization of Muslims and the rise of Islamic extremism in Iran.

And now in Venezuela we have almost civil war, because of mass starvation that Maduro’s government takeovers of industries have caused. Donald Trump and his minions might just impose a coup there or invade the country with the U.S. military. As with Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Iran, and all those other countries, U.S. bureaucrats’ interventions and invasions will only cause more death and destruction. That is what government interventionism causes, as history tells us.

But, as Hornberger asserts, Trump and his neocon handlers and warmongers really just want regime change and a U.S.-loyal regime installed in Venezuela. The Trump people really couldn’t care less about the Venezuelan people. And as Hornberger points out at the end of his post, if they did care about the Venezuelan people, they would have them come to the U.S. where there is much more freedom, opportunity and much less starvation and chaos, and wouldn’t be trying to build a government wall to obstruct the foreigners’ way to a better life.

Pompeo and Trump Examples of Bureaucrat Devotion to the State, Not to Freedom And Free Markets

To show how devoted to non-interventionism Donald Trump is, he now wants the U.S. government under his leadership to impose a coup in Venezuela. Trump is also backing down on his promise to take troops out of Syria.

So Secretary of State Mike Pompeo now wants to throw his weight around with this interventionist coup in Venezuela. He has appointed Elliott Abrams to be a “special” envoy to Venezuela. I guess Pompeo is influenced by Abrams’s experience as a Bush-pardoned Iran-Contra criminal, as well as his general foreign interventionist mentality with Israel and Latin America, and being an advisor to Bush the Younger’s “Global Democracy Strategy.”

If you’re an opponent of free markets, individualism, private property and voluntary association then you probably love “Global Democracy.”

Talk about “birds of a feather.” Mike Pompeo and Elliot Abrams. They join fellow neocon interventionist John Bolton, who never met an intervention or a war he didn’t like.

Wait, did they really mean Elliott Abrams the AccuWeather meteorologist? We could only hope.

As a Reagan administration minion, Abrams (the neocon not the meteorologist) would cover up the war crimes committed by the Latin American regimes Reagan aided and abetted.

So, like Trump Pompeo is clueless as to the American founders’ foreign policy of non-interventionism. Trump, Pompeo and the neocons and liberals all seem to believe in myths about the U.S. government’s role in other countries’ affairs, even though just about all if not all of U.S. government’s past interventions have gone badly or have had worse long-term consequences, certainly worse than had these bureaucratic morons not imposed their fantasies on the rest of the world.

To show that these clowns are clueless about freedom and are really just concerned with further empowering the State and especially the U.S. government (and call it “democracy”), and clueless of the importance of free markets, Pompeo stated in an address to the UN Security Council, “We’re here to urge all nations to support the democratic aspirations of Venezuelan people as they try to free themselves from former President Maduro’s illegitimate mafia state.”

Pompeo seems to think that “freeing themselves” is by way of “democracy,” by way of elections, politics, government. Well, that sure isn’t helping us here in the U.S. For 200+ years the U.S. government has added more and more bureaucratic and police state intrusions into the lives and property of Americans. Income tax. New Deal. “Great Society.”

There are many brainwashed Americans who think that those intrusions are a good thing. And now we have delusional “Democratic Socialists” getting into power in Amerika, who want to steal even more from the American people and expand governmental powers even more over their lives. Thanks, “democracy.”

So Pompeo sees “democratic” aspirations as the priority, like “democracy” will cure the Venezuelans’ lack of food and their starvation and impoverishment.

And Pompeo went on, “Just this morning, we tried to find a way for this Council to speak in one voice in support of the Venezuelan people and democratic ideals through a presidential statement of this Council.”

“Democratic ideals.” No mention of “free market ideals.”

So Pompeo, just how will 51% of the people having power over the rest of the people via elections resolve their food and hunger issues? He doesn’t know. These statists have no clue about why the people are starving. He probably believes that the U.S.-backed “President” of Venezuela Pompeo now supports will come up with a better “plan” for the government to oversee food production and distribution, much like the Republicans in the U.S. Congress push their RepublicanCare, their own version of ObamaCare. No mention of freedom and free markets.

The statists’ priority is not freeing the people. No, it’s “democracy,” majority rules, elections, politics, government!

Venezuelan President Maduro and his military state have seized the means of production and distribution of food in Venezuela. When government bureaucrats and their enforcers take over industries, because they have no idea what they are doing (in Venezuela just like in the U.S.), those industries will have distortions, overstocks or shortages. In this case, shortages, empty store shelves, long lines, mass hunger, violence, chaos.

As I have mentioned before, here in America with private ownership of food production and distribution, we have fully-stocked store shelves, many varieties and choices as well, and not really very much long lines, and not the kind of starvation and chaos that we see in Venezuela.

The answer is to restore private ownership of the means of production. Restore freedom. The government has to let go of its power and control.

And it would be helpful if our representatives in Washington such as Pompeo would say these things explicitly! That is what we really need to hear from U.S. “leaders.”

But I don’t think Pompeo the statist understands, because all they seem to care about is government intervening and bureaucrats imposing their interventionist fantasies. And much of this power wielding is also based on EGO. Pompous Pompeo acts like his ego is as big as his weight. (He could lose a few pounds, really.) These government bureaucrats and interventionists love to impose their powers onto others!

And speaking of my reference to restoring free markets and private ownership of the means of production in Venezuela, the immigration issue is another example of how “conservatives” are against free markets and private property. These conservatives like Rush Limbaugh and nationalists like Trump want to arrest peaceful non-criminals who are traveling to find a better life. They would arrest private church officials for taking in immigrants, and they would arrest private businessmen for hiring those without government authorization to work and sell their labor or services to willing employers and consumers.

Anyway, with Syria and now Venezuela, because of Trump’s low-IQ and incoherence he is showing how malleable a puppet he is, of the national security state, and how easily psy-opped he is by the CIA racket.
