CIA Mind Control Theories
CIA Mind Control Theories
Franklin Ruehl (Author - Anomalist) gives expert video advice on: What is 'Project Bluebird'?; What is 'Project Artichoke'?; Did the CIA play a role in the creation of LSD? and more...
What is 'Project Artichoke'?
Project Artichoke apparently evolved from Project Bluebird and involved just more attempts at mind control, we'll say, using different drugs, morphine, and perhaps hypnosis.
Did the CIA play a role in the creation of LSD?
The CIA was involved in no way with the development of LSD. It was actually first synthesized by a Swiss scientist, Albert Hoffman, back in 1939. And intriguingly, he used this on himself; he used himself as a human guinea pig. Today Hoffman is 101 apparently in perfect mental and physical health, so it obviously did not hurt him. But the CIA saw that LSD offered tremendous promise in terms of mind control. And what would be perfect for an intelligence agency would to be able to control the minds of other people.
Did the CIA test LSD on humans?
Actually, we have evidence that the CIA used LSD on its own physicians and staffers - secretly. There's a classic case of a man, Dr. Frank Olsen, an army doctor, who was involved heavily in LSD research. In 1953 - November - he went to a party in Maryland and apparently had a drink spiked with LSD. A few days later, Olsen, in New York City, leapt from the tenth floor of his hotel building, on November 29th 1953. Had no reason to commit suicide. Now, two questions: Was this the result of having taken that LSD - that it affected his mind? Or was he deliberately killed because he knew too much about the LSD research? But from his case, we certainly have evidence that they even used their own people as guinea pigs to test the affects of LSD.
What is the MK-ULTRA program?
MK-ULTRA is just another CIA mind control that involves using all the various methods to try to control minds. Actually we believe it was perhaps the inspiration for movies such as "The Manchurian Candidate" where Lawrence Harvey has been pre-programmed to carry out a presidential assassination.
Are there allegations that the CIA was connected to the Jonestown massacre?
There are allegations that the CIA was involved with Jonestown for instance when Congressman Leo Ryan went down to investigate. He was helped by a man, Richard Dwyer, who was actually the Deputy Counsel for Mission at the American Embassy and it turns out he was a CIA agent. Now Ryan's family sued; blaming the CIA for his death. The case was dismissed apparently by a judge who might have been under the influence of the government telling him to get rid of that case and amazing even though it doesn't appear to be something that would be kept classified most of the evidence, most of the records regarding Jonestown are still kept secret, in a sealed file.
Did the CIA conduct psychic research?
Apparently, beginning in 1972, the CIA did begin psychic research. The projects had various names such as, "Grill Frame", "Sun Streak", and the best known, "Star Gate". And this involved individuals who would try to decipher facts using their psychic powers.
What is a 'remote viewer'?
Apparently, the term 'remote viewer' was coined as a euphemism by the CIA to talk about individuals capable of long-distance telepathy or psychic power. Where they could view a scene psychically, even on another continent. And we've had a number of reports that they were highly successful. For example, we have men such as John McGonagal and Captain Edward Deens and Engle Swanson all claiming that there was up to an 85% success rate with this Project Stargate.
What is a 'viewing station'?
A viewing station would be a place where you would have a number of remote viewers all concentrating on a particular target of interest to the government. It might be a foreign missile base. It might be a biolab in another country, or perhaps trying to find somebody who had been abducted. The viewing stations were around the country but the best known was at Fort Meade in Maryland where they may have had as many as 250 separate projects covering thousands of cases.
