"Things are not always what they appear to be."
Paul Neuman to Sally
in Absence of Malice
"The image in some places [of those who believe in human manipulation through de-patterning (.e., "brainwashing") and hypnosis] is of a monster of some kind who wants to pull a string and manipulate people. Nothing could be further from the truth. People are manipulated; I just want them to be manipulated more effectively."
CNN reports that the search for a motive behind 64-year-old Stephen C. Paddock's slaughter at Mandalay Bay remains a mystery – perhaps an unknowable mystery.
CNN goes on to say that a shooter's reasons, however sick and twisted, usually become clear within a day or two. A suicide note, a manifesto, a series of social media screeds, a phone call — even police reports and court dockets can provide insight into what drives a warped mind to commit such a violent act. Usually, someone close knows something or realizes, in retrospect, that they missed the warning signs. – but so far, nothing.
The truth is, Paddock is more and more appearing to fall into that genre of assassins that came out of nowhere in the 1950s and '60s and who were later uncovered to be assassins of Third World leaders such as Patrice Lumumba in the Congo, Salvador Allende in Chile and recently Hugo Chavez in Venezuela; also Americans such as JFK, Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King and Jack Ruby.

When one speaks of secret intelligence programs such as MK-ULTRA - which the government denied for years even existed - thoughts of the so-called Illuminati immediately spring to mind: visions of sinister, spectral old men (probably Jews) bent on the pursuit of world conquest and the destruction of Christianity, and all the while cunningly hiding behind an array of front men and organizations which obscure their real identities and true designs.
However, the men behind MK-ULTRA did not dwell in the shadows; the truth is, they rather enjoyed the limelight. Nor were they Jews; if anything, they were anti-Semites. The "stuffed shirt" and egotistical cadre that constituted this elite considered Jews to be uncouth, vulgar, loud and boisterous; always "on the make" socially; given to a showy and tasteless materialism; and generally not the kind of people with whom one would like to associate. "Jew-Lover" wasn't the sort of "tag" one would wish to have hung around his neck. It could - and often did - lead to social ostracism.
In launching MK-ULTRA, the U.S. intelligence community descended into a world of shadows and corruption every bit as great as the gloom and corruption that surrounded the activities of the old KGB - especially as this activity related to "mind control."
Journalist John Marks, an expert on MK-Ultra, explains:
"In the early scientific age, the dream of controlling the brain took on a modern form in Mary Shelley's creation, Dr. Frankenstein's monster. The dream would be updated during the Cold War era to become the MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE, the assassin whose mind was controlled by a hostile government. Who could say for certain that such a fantasy would not be turned into a reality, like Verne's rocket stories or Einstein's calculations? And who should be surprised to learn that government agencies - specifically the CIA - (would become deeply involved in the creation of such a monster)?"
The immediate impetus behind these American experiments was the "show trial" of the Catholic primate for Hungary, Josef Cardinal Mindszenty, which occurred in Budapest following the Communist's seizure of power there shortly after the end of World War II.
Psychologists and psychiatrists in the West were shocked by the appearance of the prelate at his trial, a trial in which he appeared with a glazed look in his eyes and seemed to be in a zombie-like trance. They became even more alarmed when he confessed in what appeared to be surrealistic, robot-style monotones to crimes of treason he obviously had not committed. His performance recalled the Moscow purge trials of 1937 at which tough and dedicated party apparatchiks had meekly pleaded guilty to a long series of improbable offenses. Mindszenty's trial and a string of similar post-war trials in other Eastern European countries seemed staged, eerie, and fictitious.
Experts in the West - especially those associated with the CIA - felt compelled to find out how the Communists had rendered the defendants zombie-like. In the Mindszenty case, a CIA Security Memorandum declared that "some unknown force" had controlled the Cardinal, and the memo speculated that communist authorities had used hypnosis on him. In 1953 CIA Director Allen Dulles made a rare public statement on communist brainwashing:
"We in the West are somewhat handicapped in getting all the details. There are few survivors, and we have no human guinea pigs to try these extraordinary techniques."
Even as Dulles spoke, however, CIA officials acting under his orders had begun to find the scientists and human guinea pigs. Some of their experiments would wander so far across the ethical borders of experimental psychiatry (which are hazy in their own right) that Agency officials thought it prudent to have much of the work done outside the United States.
Dulles turned to Dr. Harold Wolff, a world-famous neurologist with whom he had developed an intensely personal relationship. Wolff, a skinny little doctor with an overpowering personality, became fast friends with the tall, patrician CIA Director. In late 1953, Dulles asked Wolff to conduct an official study of communist brainwashing techniques for the CIA. Wolff, who had become fascinated by the Director's tales of the clandestine world of the CIA, eagerly accepted.
Wolff formed a working partnership with Lawrence Hinkle, his colleague at Cornell University Medical College in New York City and began work - but their findings were not at all what the American intelligence community - and particularly Dulles - had wanted to hear.
In essence, the study debunked the thought that the Soviets and the Chinese had discovered a "magic bullet" insofar as drugs, hypnotism, etc. were concerned as they related to "mind-control." The report stated flatly that neither the Soviets nor the Chinese had any "magical weapons" - no drugs, exotic mental ray-guns, or other fanciful machines. Instead, the report pictured communist interrogation methods resting on skillful, if brutal, applications of age-old police methodologies.
Nonetheless, Dulles continued his effort to develop his own "Manchurian Candidate." Marks writes that the CIA's first behavioral research czar in this effort, Morse Allen, was intrigued by hypnosis. Dulles read everything he could get his hands on and in 1951 he went to New York for a four-day course from a well-known hypnotist.
This hypnotist had taken the Svengali legend to heart, and he bombarded Allen with tales of how he used hypnosis to seduce young women. He told Allen that he had convinced one mesmerized lady that he was her husband and that she desperately wanted him. That kind of deception definitely had a place in the spy business, and Allen was impressed. With permission from his superiors, Allen decided to take his hypnotic studies further - right into his own office: he asked young CIA secretaries to stay after work and ran them through the hypnotic paces - proving to his own satisfaction that he could make them do whatever he wanted. He had secretaries steal SECRET files and pass them on to total strangers, thus violating the most basic CIA security rules. He got them to steal from each other and to start fires. He made one of them report to the bedroom of a strange man and then go into a deep sleep.
Marks goes on:
"On February 19, 1954, Allen simulated the ultimate experiment in hypnosis: the creation of a 'Manchurian Candidate', or programmed assassin. Allen's victim was a secretary whom he put into a deep trance and told to keep sleeping until he ordered otherwise. He then hypnotized a second secretary and told her that if she could not wake up her friend, 'her rage would be so great that she would not hesitate to kill her'. Allen left a pistol nearby, which the secretary had no way of knowing was unloaded. Even though she had earlier expressed a fear of firearms of any kind, she picked up the gun and 'shot' her sleeping friend. After Allen brought the 'killer' out of her trance, she had apparent amnesia for the event, denying she would ever shoot anyone."
THROW ASSASSINS - assassins that can't be traced back to anyone or connected to any ideology; assassins that can be made to appear as "crazed lone gunmen;" assassins that can't even remember why (and sometimes even if) they committed the crime - that's what the CIA was aiming at with MK-ULTRA - that's what the "search for the Manchurian Candidate" was all about; and that's precisely what Lee Harvey Oswald, James Earl Ray, and Sirhan-Sirhan appear to have been.
All three men fit the CIA's profile for a "throw-away assassin" - i.e., a Manchurian Candidate. All were ner-do-wells; drifters living on the periphery of society; loners; people who wouldn't be missed. And none of them were especially bright. In other words, they were, as psychologist Milton Kline describes, prime candidates for "depatterning" (i.e., brainwashing) and hypnosis. For example, take James Earl Ray: Ray was nothing more than a down-and-out petty thief: his criminal career was typified by such offenses as taxicab holdups and grocery store robberies, for which he usually got caught. The question arises, then, how could such a man pull off a complicated crime such as a sniper-fire assassination and make his way to London via Atlanta, Toronto and Portugal? How could he afford the travel expenses, much less plan the convoluted getaway in advance? And how could he concoct such an elaborate scheme, yet still be dumb enough to leave the murder weapon at the scene of the crime with his fingerprint on it? It fits perfectly the pattern of a CIA manufactured "hit" modeled after the design of a Manchurian Candidate. And the same is true of the other two: Lee Harvey Oswald and Sirhan-Sirhan.
Needless to say, the real-life existence of such a program controlled by the government cannot help but remind people who are knowledgeable about the intelligence community to concern themselves about what really occurred at Mandalay Bay: a secret event aimed at STIRRING the pot of rage felt by conservatives around the country who have quite naturally taken notice that the target of the shooter's slaughter were conservative concert-goers. And who is it today that controls America's intelligence Agencies?
GOD PRESERVE US AS EVANGELICALS FROM THE DECEPTION THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP IS FOISTING – DECEPTIONS THAT INCLUDE THE USE OF "THROWAWAY ASSASSINS." [Please see our Article, "Trump as the Anti-Christ."] [PRESS HERE]
WE URGE YOU TO TAKE A STAND AND PUBLICALLY WITNESS AGAINST THE CHURCH'S ALMOST UNREASONING SUPPORT OF DONALD TRUMP. SPEAK OUT (ie., WITNESS) AGAINST THE DECEPTION THAT MANY CHRISTIAN LEADERS AND ORGANIZATIONS ARE PURVEYING.
The WHITE ROSE SOCIETY was a group formed by students Hans and Sophie Scholl and a band of Christian friends and professors. Their common goal was to stand against the Nazi regime that was terrorizing their country in the early 1940's, AND MORE IMPORTANTLY TO DECLARE THAT CHRIST WAS THE SUPREME POWER AND NOT ADOLPH HITLER. They secretly wrote and printed leaflets behind a church organ. They would then take as many as 2000 of them at a time and randomly distribute this bold writing in cities such as Stuttgart, Frankfurt, Vienna, Frieburg, Saarbreuken and Mannheim. As a result of taking part in these activities, seven of its members were executed between February 1943 and October 1944.
THE QUESTION HERE, AS IT WAS FOR SOPHIE AND HANS SCHOLL IS THIS: DO YOU FEAR MORE THE WRATH OF MAN OR THE WRATH OF GOD??
Finally, we urge you to download our flyers and pass them out; nail them to trees, lamp-posts; place them on cars, in windows; hand them to your neighbors and friends, etc. Download flyers to be passed out to friends and neighbors and pinned on trees, in windows, on church bulletin boards, etc.
In the light of all that's been happening recently - and we speak here of the Trump presidency, Islamic terrorism, the new anti-Semitism directed against both Jews and the Jewish state (Israel), the growing storm clouds over the Middle east which are harbingers of the coming Gog / Magog War, and that my wife and I can recover fully from our illnesses so that the work of the ministry can continue with vigor. In connection with the work of the ministry, we DESPERATELY need your financial help if we are to continue on with the work God has given us. The help you send will not accrue to any single individual, but will be directed to the effort of the ministry to bring TRUTH to you that you cannot receive anywhere else.
We ask you to bear in mind what the Apostle Paul told those who followed him; that if we have blessed you with SPIRITUAL gifts, is it too much to ask that you would reciprocate with FINANCIAL gifts.
God bless all of you.
