THE UNPOSSIBLE FILES





In Russia, farms of online trolls systematically harass democratic voices and spread false information on the Internet and on social media...Eric Schmidt CEO, Google

https://www.lawfareblog.com/someone-learning-how-take-down-internet...Bruce Schneier, 
security technologist, author, Schneier On Security blogger anticipating Oct. 24th 2016 DDoS attacks that disrupted the East coast internet.  

The Paranoid Style As Weaponized Disinformation:
"In fact, the idea of the paranoid style as a force in politics would have little 
contemporary relevance or historical value if it were applied only to men with 
profoundly disturbed minds.  It is the use of paranoid modes of expression by more 
or less normal people that makes the phenomenon significant."...The Paranoid Style in American Politics”, historian Richard Hofstadter, 1964

NY Times, 9/7/16 - OXFORD, England — Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter lashed 
out at Russia on Wednesday, accusing the government of President Vladimir V. Putin of demonstrating a “clear ambition to erode” international order and warning Russia to stay 
out of the American elections.  Russia plainly ignored that admonition. 

THE UNPOSSIBLE FILES:
IMO, this has been happening for decades.  Russian troll farm disinformation 
has merged their message with the Trump friendly National Enquirer, Alex Jones, the 
Religious Right, prominent Republican's Pat Buchanan, Giuliani, Ralph Peters, Rep. 
Steve King and now "President" of the free world, Donald Trump.  And why not, Putin 
is Christian.  At least he says he is.  The above more than take Putin's word on it while 
questioning their own leader's religion and citizenship.  None dare call it_____(guess)

What else do all of them have in common?   All are funded by oil and might want the 
price of same to go to "at least" $75 a bbl. to help bailout the oil economies of Russia, 
Alaska, Kansas, Texas, Oklahoma, etc.  Gov. Sam Brownback of Kansas now looks like a genius in promoting tax cuts and supply-side economics.  It helps that his state of Kansas 
is the Koch Brothers home base.  The right wing put their faith in oil, in Putin, in Koch, in Trump, in ultra-nationalism.  

"In a report dated May 21, Internet Research Agency commercial director 
Svetlana Boiko discussed the progress of the trolling project’s $75,000 trial 
period, which began April 10. The report says that during that period, the 
trolls left more than 2,500 comments on 30 different news websites, tweeted 
1,220 times from 12 accounts, wrote 85 Facebook posts, posted 175 times in an unspecified number of forums, and made five bizarre YouTube videos attacking 
the U.S. government."

"Bizarre" YT videos attacking U.S.?  IOW, deliberately made to be seen as such. 
Deliberately using "bizarre" "paranoid modes of expression" as a means of spreading 
not misinformation but disinformation by Psy-Ops disinformation troll farm pros.  
Their deliberately demented content presented by English speaking or even British 
accented narrators is offset by shear volume and numbers of videos.  Thousands of 
paranoid YT channels with many more fake supporting comments are all made to be 
as repulsive, as delusional and as whacked out a possible.  Thousands of blogs, fake 
news, fake forums and websites jamming up the thing that challenges Putin's state 
sponsored RT news and local control, the internet.  This is Putin reversing, subverting 
and undermining the intent of the internet by manufacturing doubt and turning it into 
an extension of his own upside-down broken government and politics.

FROM 2014 BUZZ FEED (that the rest of the media are now forced to cover):
"Russia’s campaign to shape international opinion around its invasion of
Ukraine has extended to recruiting and training a new cadre of online
trolls that have been deployed to spread the Kremlin’s message on the
comments section of top American websites."  (Not to mention YT videos
and comments, not to mention that it's been going on, IMO, for a decade)

"Plans attached to emails leaked by a mysterious Russian hacker collective 
show IT managers reporting on a new ideological front against the West in the comments sections of Fox News, Huffington Post, The Blaze, Politico, and WorldNetDaily."  (In newsspeak, *shocking, appalling and cause for concern*) 

"The bizarre hive of social media activity appears to be part of a 
two-pronged Kremlin campaign to claim control over the internet, launching a million-dollar army of trolls to mold American public opinion as it cracks down on internet freedom at home."
Not to mention influencing the 2016 elections with or help from the
RNC, Wikileaks, the National Enquirer, Face Book to elect now President
elect Donald Trump.  The loyal "patriot" who led the birther movement for
5 years trying to humiliate his own President while admiring and praising Vladimir Putin.  As did Republicans Giuliani, Ralph Peters and Steve
King and Pat Buchana and others...

Explaining evangelical support for Trump via Jeet Heer of The New Republic:

"More recently, a virtual Vladimir Putin cult has arisen among religious conservatives longing for a return to cultural purity."
Putin’s macho bearing, his hostility to LGBT rights, and his fusion of nationalism with support for the Russian Orthodoxy all make him an attractive figure to right-wing Christians disenchanted with Obama’s socially liberal America. 
Franklin Graham, heir to the most influential American evangelist, says Putin should be celebrated for taking “a stand to protect his nation’s children from the damaging effects of
any gay and lesbian agenda,” even as “America’s own morality has fallen so far on this issue.” Rush Limbaugh cheers Putin for opposing “a full-frontal assault on what has always been
considered normalcy.” Religious Right stalward Bryan Fischer, host of the radio program Focal Point, has hailed Putin as a “lion of Christianity.” Sam Rohrer, president of the America Pastors Network, calls the Russian president “the moral leader of the world.”.....Jeet Heer Oct 24, 2016
Disinformation soft news and comments on YT videos and on HuffPo
comment sections are the least of new Cold War blizzard of lies tactics.
They are way down in terms of importance.  Sowing fear by increments:
hacking the internet, large corporations, banks, candidate emails.   Soon
to come: Right wing governments across Europe who will also extend
praise in Putin's direction.  Which means Italy and Merkel's Germany.

The NYC explosions on 23rd Street three blocks from where I live
where no one was killed and all injured were released from the hospital
the next morning were a prelude to something worse as the Nov. 8th,
2016 election recedes.  The election of Donald Trump.  His Republican
base watch with clenched teeth as a Trump regime takes shape.
Even as the WSJ suggested in response to the Trump rape tapes that
if elected Trump would resign whether on his own or by the
RNC with Pense then taking the oath and Chief Justice Roberts
having to get it right a second time.  Which he was forced to do
in 2009.  As conservative David Frum has recently tweeted, the 25th
Amendment Article 4 will be getting a lot of scrutiny even as Trump
concedes $25 million in restitution regarding Trump U to NYS AG,
Schneiderman.

My personal and worldwide Nightmare Before Christmas continues for
four more years with Trump's Republican Party much more of a danger
than he is with legislative powers much greater than the last time they
lost the popular vote and assumed a mandate to govern.  They will do
so with or without the Soprano level R/ E gangster unless he has
something really terrible on them as a political Party.  It's become a
tradition for Republican's to use the #1 spot as a foil to distract while
the big boys, in this case Pense and Ryan run the show.  While the
compliant mainstream and the subservient to insanity right wing
Breitbart, Drudge press plays "what will Donald J say today?"

BLIZZARD OF LIES (Gopnik Not Safire)


http://www.newyorker.com/news/daily-comment/the-dangerous-acceptance-of-donald-trump

"The three-part process by which the gross becomes taken for granted has been on matchlessly grim view this past week in the ascent of Donald Trump."

"If Trump came to power, there is a decent chance that the American experiment would be over. This is not a hyperbolic prediction; it is not a hysterical prediction; it is simply a candid reading of what history tells us happens in countries with leaders like Trump. Countries don’t really recover from being taken over by unstable authoritarian nationalists of any political bent, left or right—not by Peróns or Castros or Putins or Francos or Lenins or fill in the blanks. The nation may survive, but the wound to hope and order will never fully heal. Ask Argentinians or Chileans or Venezuelans or Russians or Italians—or Germans. The national psyche never gets over learning that its institutions are that fragile and their ability to resist a dictator that weak. If he can rout the Republican Party in a week by having effectively secured the nomination, ask yourself what Trump could do with the American government if he had a mandate." ...Adam Gopnik, New Yorker

Even without a popular mandate we're about to find out.  
Autocrats don't need mandates they just invent one.  
Like Dick Cheney in 2000 when he assumed office of 
VP along with his intern, Bush, after loosing the popular 
vote.  Cheney's daughter Liz just got elected to Congress...

The most important question regarding the claims in my initial post is why?  Simply to
manufacture doubt and distrust in facts, logic, nuance, governments, reality itself and
to make sure erosion seeps into U.S. mainstream politics and culture.  Just look at what
passes for populist right wing politics.  Meanwhile...

...the following video by Mr. K, Dr. Michio Kaku does not fit that category.

M




After land, sea, air, the internet and space, there is another final frontier, another domain of contention and warfare.  The sixth domain, the human brain and the control of same.   

Blizzard of Lies:
Cognitive dissonance however is hard to avoid.  Proof of claim hard to come by.  
The experts precede me.  As in..."The 1st rule of Fight Club (pro trolling)...
never talk about Fight Club...unless wearing ski masks and floral shirt....





...thousands of bogus fear and doom disinformation videos and websites pretending 
to expose (U.S. never Russkie) government sponsored mind control who all but 
stand on their heads to tell viewers that all fake news videos, their pro and con 
comments, all disinformation channels, sites, blogs are made by paid or volunteer 
Psy-Ops contractors whose job is to imitate paranoid fear and doom delusion 
"Big Brother" doublethink.  

Then again, the above video is comedian Samantha Bee doing a comedy 
interview from Moscow.  What serious news person can take this seriously?  
Everything said is totally accurate but that simple fact is offset by the comedy 
format which can be said to be easily rigged by using Russian students or comedians 
claiming to be paid troll disinformants. 


But not so fast.  Few of these "mind control", gangstalking, chemtrail fear and doom websites
are made by lunatics counter to Doctor Vaughan Bell and the NY Times link below.  This is
the popular author and one of the writers at the Mind Hacks blog who a few years ago
made statements that all these sites are delusional.

Is it always a good idea for media friendly professionals like Dr. Bell to come to easy
conclusions that all these videos are to be dismissed as made by and for paranoids and or
those in intractable delusion and nothing more?  Yes it is.  To say otherwise would be
professional suicide and public humiliation.  It's left to comedians like Samantha Bee and
and, well, shitty writers like me to say otherwise.  And now the the rest of the post election
media pile on with "revelations" about "fake news."  Is this reality rigged or what?   And
whose asking?

Bell, in his best most con-vincing Brit accented professional voice wouldn't even respond
to anything said here (British understatement).  Or he might pull a Glenn Greenwald and
say that this is nothing more than "Russians Are Coming" Cold War Joe McCarthy paranoia
without proof.  Or that this blog is merely a lefty meta conspiracy theory of conspiracy theories.
I would naturally say that inference and common sense label these internet bogus troll sites
for what they are and not for what they pretend to be.

Which implies they're all operating in concert.  Which logically puts me in the category
Dr. Bell talks about along with all his patients in his and in every P-Don waiting room
loaded to capacity with people talking to themselves about commie trolls.  He might be
diplomatic and say I'm merely misinformed.  How is it that all these sites have similar
themes and points o view?  Dr Bell might be very familiar with the term "Troll Farm"
but he might also be quick to whip out his prescription pad nonetheless.  I would plead,
but Dr. Bell, sir, before you section me please believe that this blog is far from a lefty
DSM cliché.  Famous last words he would reply, they all say that.  Unfortunately for me
they aren't my last words on the subject.

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/11/13/fashion/13psych.html?pagewanted=a

Of course the videos in question promote the very thing they pretend to be against.
IOW, videos and blogs pretending to be fighting mind control are in themselves the purest
form of mind control via repetition and shear numbers of videos, comments, sites, blogs,
forums. Why?  Superficially to degrade the internet which in itself poses a threat to closed
autocratic societies who label themselves democratic.  Russian troll farms degrade credible
news and in the process reverse the onslaught of pervasive Western culture which tends to
put closed mafia societies like Russia and China in a bad light.  Then again, in the act of
waking up from history, degrading the internet and reality itself hardly makes a difference
and especially when a Soprano level President is about to take office in the U.S.

These mind control, chemtrail, FEMA coffin videos and comments aren't the mentally
ill imitating each other.  These pretenders are opposite of insane.  They use the same fear
and doom style as the very sane westerners mentioned in the paragraph below who act in the
name of the American and European fringe radical right wing pretending to be persecuted
and claiming to be beyond political or ideological binary constructs of right and left.
Blaming reptilian aliens, "elites" or Illuminati comes in handy and allows them the room
to make outrageous National Enquirer claims without it reflecting on the right wing worldwide
or Republican establishments in the U.S.  Of course "the Masons", "NWO", and Illuminati are
bogus dog whistle terms used by the delusional and people who want to be seen as delusional
and paranoid.  Especially when you have enough time and money to launch thousands
and thousands of videos and websites in an effort to degrade and undermine the internet,
news and objective reality.  But how do I know that in the examples given?

What I am saying goes beyond the impossible to the unpossible.  IOW, superficially
this blog can be seen as cognitively dissonant as the videos in question which could just be
the opinions of people who might look at the world differently and who hold different views
and opinions from my own?  Am I blind to and impugning the motivations of others who honestly hold opinions that differ from my own without providing proof?  Dumb and over dramatic newspeak.

Never underestimate the power of political PR even from strident pretend fools like
Presidenté Donald Trump, his supporters, the religious right of Jim Bakker and Franklin
Graham, small "l" libertarian, Alex "Skull and Bones" Jones and Jones' European
counterpart, David Icke.  Who, along with fake and real You Tube internet radio troll farm
salesmen deliver "alternative" right wing "news" "the government doesn't want you to know",
and are on the same level as The Globe and the Trump friendly David Pecker's (great name)
National Enquirer.  One step "up" would be Glenn Beck and The Blaze, WorldNetDaily,
Breitbart, Drudge, talk radio and Fox News.  And of course the National Enquirer and
New York Observer (run by Trump's son-in-law Jarad Kushner) are only two of three
papers to endorse the Republican Trump.  The third paper originates from Las Vegas,
a Sheldon Adelson Trump casino Tomorrowland fake town.  Trump was made fun of by
every late night TV comedian, received no newspaper endorsements and won anyway.

His is a political lie machine oil rich enough to pacify and cater to extreme outliers
for the purpose of propping up mainstream Republicans and vice versa.  Pretty soon
the outliers through shear numbers and manic fanatic demagogic energy become normalized
into the new mainstream.  How many believe their own nonsense?   I'm not supposed to say
or assume but probably very few.  How many are in on the joke that is their extreme ideology?

Doesn't matter.  Power matters.  All they have to do is keep repeating and repeating
which for many people makes anything true as long as it resonates with core identity
programming, I mean, politics and values.

Trump never believed his own birther claims and I'm not the only one who "knew"/
assumed that.  Wow, there's that "assume" word again.  Is it such a leap to say that
Alex Jones and David Icke are reasonably sane and don't for a minute believe half of
what they're saying despite self-admitted psychosis by Icke.  Here's my comic take on him.
A sports commentator who possibly sleep deprived himself into an induced psychosis possibly
with the help of whatever it is that powers the pro soccer (and pro wrestling, pro sports) industry.
Sleep deprivation might overstimulate verbal centers in the brain.  Icke, and many like
him, if nothing else are verbal freak con artists.

What passes for Alex Jones' publicly expressed views in the the fake news political
industrial complex serves the purpose of adding to the quota of BS in the public
narrative.  The shameless factor in speech by some, and appearance in others is held
in high regard over and above TV sitcoms with titles of "Shameless."

(I haven't seen it but comes pre-loaded with Mav's Cantina earth alien tattooined hipsters,
ex-inmates, people in and out of rehab and down-homey smiling live versions of the Walking Dead)

Reality almost exceeds itself in "blizzard of lies" desperation and disruption.  It's what
makes the world go around.  Going on about this excessively is surely not such a good idea.
And on I go...

SOUND AS A WEAPON



Secret and commercialized sound weapon systems go by benign as well as provocative science fiction names like Remote Neural Monitoring and Influence", "Voice of God" and V2k or
Voice To Skull used on disinformation sites and videos.  That's not including the more
officious military lingo.  ("Monitoring" and "influence?  How PR passive aggressive can you get?)

Names and acronyms for commercially supposedly available sound weapons: Magnetic Audio Device, or MAD, and Sound Commander, Hyperspike, Banshee II, Sonic Nausea, Sonic
Devastator, the Inferno Intenso, (Intenso what? I would fire that PR person)

The Shout, the Shriek, the Scream (used by Israel since 2004) induces nausea and dizziness. In combining two low frequencies "knees buckle, the brain aches, the stomach turns...", (oh yes, yes, I'll have what she's having, give me more), the SHOFAR (by the Israeli EORD - "non-lethal" high-power acoustic radiator with 36 acoustic boxes functioning in phase to reach a claimed amplitude of 128 bD at 50 meters), The MOSQUITO by the British company Compound Security Systems (CSS). Under the name of Beethoven you can get "a sound that softens behavior" (said the website slogan before it disappeared).   

Claims on corporate websites are always said to be exaggerated never resulting in working real world technology. They do provide an idea as to possibilities.  Old news and also mostly meaningless for the average person like the supposedly serious book on sound weapons called "Extremely Loud." Serious until checking their bogus Comedy Central type websites. 

This video below is a Democracy Now commentary on G-20 demonstrations in Pittsburg.  From my POV both sides, the police with their big deal military trucks and crowd dispersal equipment as well as political theater from what's left of the left are pretty sad.  Like one feeding off the other.  Almost like Orwell's 1984 where Big Brother creates his own "underground" opposition and proceeded to attack his own creation.






Bob Dylan used to describe "hippies" walking on the roof of his house in Woodstock.
If he was telling the truth at all there were likely no hippies, no fanatics walking on his roof and it probably wasn't a jazz cigarette induced paranoid auditory hallucination either.  It is likely he did hear sounds coming from the direction of his roof.

How about indulging in some conspiracy. Dylan's wife at that time was named Sara.  A contractor in the field of directed sound weaponry is Scientific Applications and Research Association or SARA Inc.  The implications however meaningless are most likely true.  Dylan was likely hearing a base sound mimicking boots walking on his roof among other simulated common sounds.  The crooked music industry?  Government or police harassment using early stage sound technology?  Possibly.  Or something much stupider
and at the same time more real and much more insidious.

THE MOVIE "SPOTLIGHT"







The female reporter in the excellent movie Spotlight briefly interviewes an accused former
priest named Father Panquin.  Panquin calmly admits everything he was accused of.  The
depicted aging priest claims he got no pleasure from multiple molestations.  Before he
was stopped from talking further he matter of factly and mechanically mentions that he
was also raped when young.  And what does that scene and this topic have to do with anything?

Why was this scene specifically included in the movie?  What was being said?  Was it merely
dramatic Hollywood provocation describing an unofficial method of recruitment?  The Church's
molestation syndrome certainly went beyond the availability of stimulant drugs like pot, meth
amphetamines and cocaine.  Beyond suppressed sexuality and dumb occult-like mechanical
methods of recruiting future priests.

The Catholic Church as everyone knows reached unprecedented riches in post emigrant
America.  Enter a self-imposed karmic wheel that included reporters, lawyers and the
institution itself.

The Catholic Church under Pope Francis is still very formidable as it should be.  Pope Francis
has reported that his will be a short rein due to health problems.  The previous Pope, Pope
Benedict, was acting as Pope long before his formal election.  Conservatives are unfortunately
still very much still in control.

I had a talk with a dying priest, Father Philip around 2009.  In response to my then feeble
questions about the Knights of Columbus he said the following regarding real world
methods used by the bagmen of the Catholic Church, the people who make the real
estate deals and magically come up with large sums when needed.  Here was his response
as a veteran priest: "They have their own agenda that is not part of any religion."  Was
this priest talk to pacify me?  Was he medicated or sick?

Some weeks later in one of his last sermons this priest sounded very much in control saying,
"watch out for those who value piety over people."  IOW, watch out for ultra-orthodox
regardless of faith or ideology.  Islamic or Christian.  Pius X, Pastor John Hagee or
Messianic Zionists.

Conservative defenders to the death of the Catholic Church haven't seen their day come
and go with the emergence of Pope Francis.  Just the opposite.  As always they see
themselves as being vindicated and redeemed.  Conservatives in the U.S. now count
themselves as among the persecuted.  Persecuted by whom?  They are persecuted and
offended by everything including the so-called "homosexual agenda" and what is said
to be the resulting workplace discrimination in academia and elsewhere.

In summery, public ridicule has always been seen by the religious as a badge of honor.  
The Church isn't the only one operating in this mode.  In other sections I go into my views 
on institutions and religious celebrities who in my view deliberately invite public ridicule.  
The Church has done the same.  It sees and feeds into geopolitical events that are said to resemble that which occurred before WWI and II. 

Women and minorities both racial and sexual are having their deserved day in and
out of the media.  In my view media outlets like the Huffington Post go beyond
caricature into the void when it comes to reporting on Cait Jenner Room 101 gender
politics.  Clickbait sensationalists won't miss my readership in the slightest.
HuffPo political ravings are only a vague description of the real world or real world
politics.  At the same time they're head and shoulders preferable to their right wing
counterparts in the fear and doom always at war lock and load NRA cliché departments.

In times of mixed gender and abortion cultural upheaval, extremists have taken control
of of the U.S. Congress and at the same time do everything but stand on their heads in
attempts to portray themselves as being among the religious and ideologically oppressed
from all sides not in Syria or Iraq but in this country.  Imagine a President Trump or ANY
Republican POTUS leading a Republican Congressional majority and appointing now
Sen. Ted Cruz to fill the Scalia SCOTUS spot?  Hillary Clinton is the only one who can
upset this impossible to conceive right wing winner-take-all political scenario.  She is also
going to severely disappoint when it comes to negotiating with Republican majorities.
As if writing about it is going to make any difference either way.

Someone like the right wing Bishop Fellay (great name) of Canada probably longs 
for the 1940's and 50's with the world digging out of WWII when people like him 
and the infamous Father Coughlin ran the (radio) show.  He and the Church would
routinely get away with neurosis passing for truth. 

The Bishop probably remembers 1955 like it was yesterday 
longing for a "good old 
fashion" Old Testament devastation in dropping the big one and start over for that 
time honored reborn renewal. 

Fellay, like Mel Gibson, probably invites public ridicule.  Maybe he, like so many 
right wing extremists, longs for a drugged up Air Force Missileer (as recently happened) 
or drunken Russian pressing the red button "doing God's will" upstaging the Iranians 
and giving Islamists and Christian fundamentalists everywhere their final "bombs away" 
Dr. Strangelove moment of eschatological release.  It makes no difference if you actually
believe what you say, just keep repeating repeating and do what you're told.  Do what
you're told.  Do what you're.... Even if you don't have to be told.  It would be funny if
the unpossible turned out true.  That they're all taking on assigned roles and are all
the same post human entity.  Truly terrifying.  Thank goodness that's one thing we, I
don't have to worry about...

COINCIDENCE OR SYNCHONICITY?


No Doubt, the previous entries regarding the depressing Republican
control of Congress and right wing trolls can be temporarily offset by
Gwen Stefani, The Soggy Bottom Boys, George Clooney and the movie,
Oh Brother Where Art Thou?  (Big Brother is all around us in all his guises.)




Summer of 2016 I'm walking past Lincoln Center on my way to see the movie
"Genius" at the Lincoln Plaza.  I pass a political writer on the street I recognize but I'm
very bad with names.  I sit down in the theater to watch the coming attractions.  An
upcoming documentary about autism, "Life Animated", had the name Ron Suskind in
the credits.  His son is the main subject of the film.  Of course it was Suskind I had just
passed on the street.

The movie "Genius" is about Thomas Wolfe and his editor Maxwell Perkins who was also
editor for Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald.  Wolfe's first book, "Look Homeward Angel"
played a large role in the movie.  Previously I had vague notions about Wolfe and his books.
I knew him from the photo I'd seen at the downtown Whitehorse Tavern.  I had no plans to
see the movie but I happened to play this Steve Young (who died this year) video the night before:








Events like that happen all the time and no big deal.  When I played the Look Homeward
Angel video I completely missed the part about "my old friend Thomas from Ashville
North Carolina."

"Genius" was an amazing film about two Americans, Thomas Wolf and Max Perkins
played by two British actors.  All the better because the Brits, with a sense of history
and context really know how to tell a story.  The real Wolfe at 6' 6" was not the sad depressed
writer I associated with the Whitehorse Tavern photo.  Just the opposite.  He was amplified
and larger than life in more ways than one.  Look Homeward Angel was published two days
before the start of Great Depression and stock market crash of 1929.  Just his luck.

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peripheral

FROM THE WIKI ENTRY:
They are still referred to as "peripherals" despite being permanently attached to (and in
some sense part of) their host processor..."

Now what does William Gibson's SF novel "The Peripheral" have to do with anything? 
And why was he in the same NYC subway car late 2014 standing over me with 
another guy about his age about a month after I bought but still hadn't read his book?  Coincidences like that happen all the time.  Except with some people they 
happen just a little too often.

He just happened to be wearing the same outfit as his photo on the back of the book.
I kept saying what I find myself saying all too often these days, "Is that what's-his-face?
Nah, can't be...too old.  Except it was his face.  He was doing publicity in NYC at the 

time with recorded YT interviews.

Are the people I describe biological time traveling animatronic humanoids from the 

"future" with uploaded consciousness as in Gibson's story?  His vehicles are 
imagination, metaphor, and allegory.  Mine unfortunately aren't.

WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON HERE?


So who, what, when, where, and most importantly, why?  They used to be valid questions. 

Another question needs to be asked.  Who is this blog addressed to?  Who is likely to 
even pretend to read or believe any of it?  The answer is nada, NO ONE. 

The following is a Wiki entry regarding unwitting volunteer CIA Harvard programs 
of the 1950's.  IOW, a little context regarding what is now called "gang stalking" on 
countless bogus sites and You Tube channels. 
  •   EDIT

    From the fall of 1959 through the spring of 1962, (Dr.) Murray was responsible 
    for the ethically questionable, CIA-sponsored MK ULTRA experiments in which twenty-two undergraduates were used as research subjects.[3][4] Among other purposes, Murray's experiments focused on measuring people's reactions under extreme stress. 
  • Unwitting undergraduates submitted to what Murray himself called "vehement, sweeping and personally abusive" attacks. Assaults to their egos, cherished ideas and beliefs were the vehicle used to cause high levels of stress and distress. Among them was 16-year-old Ted Kaczynski, who went on to become the Unabomber, a serial killer targeting academics and technologists. [5] Alston Chase's book Harvard and the Unabomber: The Education of an American Terrorist connects Kaczynski's abusive experiences under Murray to his later criminal career. Theodore John Kaczynski, was given the code name "Lawful".

The above was a CIA program, a footnote that might have been expanded beyond the
laboratory into campus life in the case of one, Ted Kaczynski with his 170 IQ.  Even if that
wasn't the case the above wording perfectly describes something that predates the CIA.  It
describes a systematic psychological waterboarding assault on the senses.  But not just by
the CIA.  Imagine the FSB version?  But hey, things have changed with Putin.  Only
journalists and opposition candidates are killed.  Not like under Stalin where anyone
rumored to be subversive was killed with plenty of gulag free labor (political dissidents,
law breakers, the unlucky, homosexuals, gypsies, Jews, Czarists, the insane, drug addicts,
orphans etc).

IOW, the above serves as an approximation of something that is not now and never was
confined to very intelligent but susceptible Harvard crash-test dummy undergraduate
guinnea pigs.  In the version I describe no human could be anything but susceptible
when subject to what is beyond my means of description.  This version doesn't describe
CIA, government or private contractor sponsored plots.

This blog is an approximation that only mimics delusion and madness.  I will 
attempt to provide the only "proof" of claim that I am aware of which can barely be 
considered circumstantial.  When context is provided it might be slightly more than 
circumstantial.  It might provoke the question, "what the hell is going on here?"  
If there's anyone left with enough curiosity to even ask.

JACOB'S LADDER







Stranger than fiction events comparable to scenes from the 1990
movie "Jacob's Ladder" minus combat related PTSD or the Hollywood
elements of demons, drugs, flashbacks, exploding cars and the contrived
cop-out "it was all a drug induced dream before death" depressing ending.
The lead character Jacob Singer (Tim Robbins) is a Jewish Army combat soldier in
Vietnam.  He is bayoneted in the stomach by one of his own men who were depicted
as being unwitting lab rats in a CIA drug experiment using something like BZ, an
hallucinatory aggression amplifying drug.  Jacob is found in the jungle with his
intestines outside his body.  Singer is still alive and taken by helicopter to a basecamp hospital.

The movie then picks up on what is supposed to be his post war civilian life.
In my view, all the scenes in this movie, all the flashbacks, everything hallucinatory
are depicted for a reason and meant to stand on their own loosely depicting iconic
metaphysical events that are timeless.

In 1985 I had "successful" sternum to pelvic bone resection surgery.  The operation was
five years before the movie.  I was in my late thirties.  Nothing iconic or metaphysical
about it but there is something going on regarding wounds or surgery in that particular area.

Unlike the movie I latter experienced a 6 to 9 month marathon of total sleep deprivation
without stimulant prescription or street drugs while in my 60's.  Considered impossible and
as close as anyone wants to get to a living death.

At one point the movie shows a civilian Jacob Singer at a crowded NYC apartment party
mixing with friends of his then Hispanic girlfriend. He is awkward and has nothing in
common with them.  As shown in the trailer, he has his palm read during the party.
Singer, shown with a wine bottle in his hand experiences confusion and war flashbacks
developing into a 106 fever.  His wife, played by the late Elizabeth Peña, gets him into
an ice bath to lower his body temperature.  He yells out that he's dying.  The shock sends
him into delirium.  He blacks out and imagines himself with his Jewish ex-wife.
He tells his ex the bedroom they are in feels like 10 degrees mirroring the ice bath.

Here's how that translates:
In the 1970's I am invited to Brooklyn to "sleep" with a partly Jewish female I'd
been seeing who was always said to be "married."  Her open marital arrangement was
more than slightly unconventional.  My guess now would be she would get pregnant by
a male loosely defined as a "husband" and would then sleep with me in between pregnancies.
Her looks were the very opposite of the Pena movie character.

The Brooklyn apartment is normal at first and then in the middle of the AM feels to be
at least 10 degrees below.  She says the heat is turned off at night.  It is unnaturally cold.
When I try to touch her to warm up she is too hot to get close to.  She is burning up but
notices nothing wrong.  She is too young for hot flashes.  Her body heat was beyond
anything sexual or natural.  But considering what we just did it did serve a purpose.

Awake all night in the sub-freezing cold room I go to work the next morning and
of course see her "husband" coming from his night job.  We turn around at the same
time as we pass.  He probably knows what's going on but it is all made to seem like high
intrigue.  Like a movie.  The invitation, the room temperate, her temperature and the
morning meeting was a contrived stupid arrangement designed to provoke guilt and
confusion about myself and the the woman I thought I knew.  I was the only one not in on the joke.

THE LADDER


There are scenes in the movie of insidious crazed doctors with typically big needles.
Replaced in reality by "nice guy" smiling student dentists applying unneeded painful
injections into the chin cavity inside my lower gums.  Smiling Asian "student" dentist
knew I would yell out in a crowded clinic which I haven't done at the hands of dentists
since the sixth grade when I got minor cavities filled without painkiller.  Smiling Asian
student dentist denies everything.  Everyone stays in character except me.  I complain
and am switched to a female Asian dentist.  Her first words to me?  "Will you cooperate?"

What I try and fail to describe above and below is all too similar to the shocks
depicted in post war civilian parts of the movie except that the reality is less dramatic.

Unlike Singer, I never got off at abandoned Bergen Street subway stations in Brooklyn.
Yet.  The people seen by Jacob in compressed scenes on subways are comparable to what I
see in encounters more numerous except that none include seeing homeless guys with tails
left out of some versions of the movie.

I did witness a fake subway fight with real people bouncing off seats inside a moving subway.
I was not involved but I could see the contrived desperation of it unfolding in front of me.
That's an example of odd events I see every time I use the subways of NYC.  Imagination,
mood, paranoia or drugs play no part.  But...

...Jacob experiences one visual shock after another.  This extends to the physical as he
is abducted by three men in a moving auto that he escapes only to have his wallet and ID
picked after he hits the ground by a guy in a Santa Klaus suit and beard waving his
bell for donations.  When asked what happened to his ID at a hospital ER he admits
that "Santa Klaus took it" confirming the movie doctors idea of someone insane.  When
wheeled on a gurney through hospital winding corridors the audience and Jacob sees
someone resembling his ex-wife curled up on the hospital floor.  See's his chiropractor
vaguely behind a glazed window.  His girlfriend Jessie is one of the nurses.  This is seen
to be the result of a concussion received in the speeding car but, as mentioned previously,
also representing something else.  Similar disjointed events not so dramatic happen routinely
in my real life version.  The fact that none of it answers to logic soon becomes beside the
point.  Ex-girlfriends that I knew for years are seen inches away in public who gaze past me.
Common enough.  In the 1970's an East Indian male is seen climbing my fire escape at
 4:30 AM, barefoot and dressed only in a sackcloth.  The same person shows up years later
in contexts so different I couldnt conceive of connecting the two events.

An event analogous to the fictional Jacob Singer car scene happened to me in April of 2014.
I am pined to the floor of a Soho bar around 4PM after being asked to leave for no apparent
reason.  I offered to pay my bill but wasn't given the chance.  There was no previous trouble,
no inebriation in a near empty bar.  A knee to the back of my leg sends me to the ground
with a guy for each leg and one with his knee to my chest while holding down my arms.
He knows his knee is stopping me from breathing and talking normally.  While down I
manage to call him a moron.  I am cuffed, ID is taken and returned.  No name tag, no police
ID is shown, I am uncuffed.  An ambulance arrives and drives me to to Presbyterian Hospital
ER across town.  The only people I see are uncomprehending blank-faced security.  I sit down,
I walk out after 30 seconds.  No blow to the head, no Santa Klaus characters, no missing ID.

No medical procedures, no blood pressure taken but the Presbyterian Hospital ambulance
bills my insurance for over a thousand dollars.  Routine fraud is the least of it.  I consider
challenging the claim.  I go back to the bar and a different bartender.  And who is going
to believe this story even with witnesses.  Nada, no one.  The guy compressing my chest
with his knee shows up the next day in circumstances so completely different as to be almost
comparable to Jacob watching helplessly while Santa Klaus picks his pocket.  There are other
implications associated with the movie version that I don't even want to touch.
