1. mind control mind control
From the 50's to the 70's the CIA ran a variety of experiments testing whether subliminal messages, electrical impulses and psychedelic drugs could be used for mind control. The most famous of them is MK-Ultra, a project that tested the mind control applications of LSD, psilocybin, mescaline and other drugs on prostitutes, prisoners, mental patients and soldiers without their knowledge or consent. Numerous sub-projects were also exposed. MK-Search aimed to concoct a truth serum for interrogating detainees. Project Artichoke aimed to induce amnesia using drugs and hypnosis. The Stargate Project studied “remote viewing.” That’s right. They blew tax dollars trying to see through walls with their mind.
2. they control the media
The government paid off major media outlets like Time, The Washington Post, The New York Times, CBS and others to publish government propaganda. Dubbed Operation Mockingbird, from 1948 to 1972 over 400 well-known domestic and foreign journalists, and over 300 newspapers and magazines were paid to report what the CIA told them to report. At least one movie, the animated “Animal Farm,” by George Orwell, was directly funded by the CIA. They also paid editors to keep anti-government reports out of the press. This was exposed in 1975 by the Church Committee.
3. unethical medical experiments
From 1932 to 1972 the US government carried out the Tuskegee Study, a clinical study of syphilis on 400 poor, African-American citizens. The government promised free treatment, but instead the subjects were given false and dangerous treatments, such as aspirin, while adequate treatment was intentionally withheld so the progress of the disease could be observed. 128 subjects died from syphilis or related complications, so their autopsies also became relevant to the study. In addition 40 women contracted syphilis from male subjects who were denied knowledge of their condition, and 19 children were born with congenital disease.
4. nazi collaboration
I know right. Nazis. But hear me out. After the Nazi regime fell in May 1945, the Allies felt no compunctions looting the rubble. Useful equipment. Needed supplies. No problem. But soliciting applications from the newly unemployed seems a little fool hardy. The US government rounded up German scientists, pardoned their war crimes, and offered them jobs. President Truman objected, so the military created the Joint Intelligence Objectives Agency, which was tasked with creating fake background information for unprosecuted, unapologetic Nazi scientists. So, hundreds of Nazis became high level government employees. For example, Arthur Rudolph, who was responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of inmates, joined the US space program. In total, 700 Nzie scientists found employment with the
5. false flag terrorism
Calm down. I’m not talking about 9/11. I’m talking about Operation Northwoods. In the 60's US military leaders wanted to drum up public support for a war on Cuba. The defense secretary presented a paper called “Justification for US Military Intervention in Cuba” that was full of a wide range of false flag suggestions. The plot included bombings in US cities, hijacking planes, and numerous other ways to scare the American people by murdering a few of them. The plans were approved by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, but rejected by President Kennedy. The plan was never implemented, but the suggestion was kept secret for until documents entitled “Operation Northwoods” were declassified in 1997.
6. false witness
In 1990 a 15-year-old girl named Nayirah testified before Congress that she had seen Iraqi soldiers murder 300 Kuwaiti babies in a hospital. This was used to justify the 1991 Gulf War on humanitarian grounds. Although many people disputed the authenticity of her story at the time, and were maligned as conspiracy theorists. It turns out the girls testimony was orchestrated by the public relations firm Hill & Knowlton, with some money from the Kuwaiti royal family, and some acting lessons provided by the CIA. Nayirah was actually Nayirah al-Sabah, daughter of Saud bin Nasir Al-Sabah, the Kuwaiti ambassador to the US. The events of her blubbery performance never actually occurred.
7. counter intelligence
It’s called CoIntelPro (an acronym for Counter Intelligence Program). Between 1956 and 1971 the FBI conducted a series of covert, usually illegal, operations to investigate and disrupt political organizations in the US. According to FBI records, 85% of CoIntelPro resources were spent infiltrating, marginalizing, and subverting groups thought to be disruptive to the existing social and political order, such as communists, feminists, civil rights advocates, and anti war groups. The program targeted the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, and the American Indian Movement. FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover ordered FBI agents to “expose, disrupt, misdirect, discredit, or otherwise neutralize” the activities of these movements and their leaders. Agents bugged phones, forged do
8. drug smuggling
In August 1996 the San Jose Mercury News published “Dark Alliance”, a 20,000 word, three-part investigative series exposing that the CIA had bought crack cocaine from Nicaraguan drug smugglers and distributed it in Los Angeles during the 80's. The profits were used to fund the CIA-supported Nicaraguan Contras.
9. gulf of tonkin
In 1964 two American destroyers engaged three North Vietnamese torpedo boats in the Gulf of Tonkin. The result was sweeping public support for aggressive military action against North Vietnam. Congress then passed the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, granting authority to give military assistance to any Southeast Asian country threatened by communist aggression. In 2005, an internal NSA historical study was declassified which concluded that there was no North Vietnamese vessel present during the incident. The report stated “It is not simply that there is a different story as to what happened- it is that no attack happened that night…” The Golf of Tonkin incident never happened. The NSA deliberately distorted the intelligence reports that it had passed on to policymakers.
