“HYPNOTIC MEME” IN NEW ALBUMS FROM CLASSIC ROCK BANDS—WHAZZUP?

“HYPNOTIC MEME” IN NEW ALBUMS FROM CLASSIC ROCK BANDS—WHAZZUP?

Three 70s “classic rock” bands, each releasing major “return to form” albums over the summer. Each seemingly revived like the Phoenix…and each sharing this “hypnotic” graphic motif.

This week, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers‘ “Hypnotic Eye” debuts as the #1 album on the Billboard US chart…1st time in 38 years.
Is this just a “coincidence”…a synchronicity…or a “meme”…are we collectively looping a hypnotic tom-petty-heartbreakers-hypnotic-eye-artstate consciousness that is reflected in the arts? Is pop culture is a reflector of the state, or a state of reflection?
“Like shadow people in shadow lands
Shadow people in shadow land
Shadow people in shadow land
Waiting for the sun to be split over there
I ain’t got any shadow at all” -Tom Petty, “Shadow People” from Hypnotic Eye…hmmm!

Hollywood Resurrection: Classic Rock and the Hypnosis Meme

I like to note memes in the popular culture because they generally hold some nuggets about the collective state of humans. The meme, that modern application for the Jungian archetypal pattern recognition and retrieval—call it software—operates on the perceptual and/or subliminal levels of consciousness. It “swims” in the streams of consciousness and charges emotional, kinetic, and visceral responses which, in turn, aggregate energies to a conditioned response. The term was coined by evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins in 1976—long before the nascent internet was made public. It means (from the Greek, mimeme- to mime, mimic; an “imitated thing”

If modern hyper-media produces chunks of coded information that either predict, or conform, behavioral and perceptual patterns, then certainly the “pop culture”, especially music, is the most viral agent to notice such patterns. Popular culture is, indeed, formulated and dispensed to the “public” as ongoing re-programming. Certainly since the time of the Beatles and the explosion of the rock music era, no better carrier of cultural upheavals has been formulated than culture driven by sound, images, and (often hidden) philosophical embeds. The Beatles, you may recall, were brazen enough to place Aleister Crowley (The Beast/666) on the “Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” cover.

Sixties and seventies rock culture created vast opportunities for media moguls to “amplify” the message to a generation literally raised by the electronosphere of TV, electric music, mass-produced print, and the more tactile responses of fashion, language, and behaviors. Psychologist, N. K. Humphrey’s has suggested that “memes should be considered as living structures, not just metaphorically.” Thus, the messages, forms, and medium constantly shift, convolute, and evolve (fitting to Dawkins’ own evolutionary theories). We now live in the day of the “nugget”: where memes fly by in rapid succession and are custom formed for a particular “affinity group”, yet touch on the larger collective culture.

I began to notice a “meme”, over the course of the last few months related specifically to three “classic” rock bands from the 1970s. In each case, these bands are “resurrecting” their images and reclaiming their mantles in the rock music pantheon. In each case, these bands—all over 40 years running—seek to shed the image of being little more than “oldies acts” or even “cover bands” of their material. In each case, the bands were culturally significant “change agents” in their respective heydays and are reclaiming their “relevance” and artistic statures. Each band, although not natives to LA/Hollywood, have largely been based there and produced their music there. In each case, there is a visual “hook” to the meme of hypnosis.

 “NOW—Chicago XXXVI”

NOW_Chicago_XXXVI_Album_CoverThe rock-jazz-pop band, Chicago began in 1967, releasing their debut LP, “Chicago Transit Authority” in 1969. The album was a masterpiece of rock-jazz fusion that featured significant commentary on the political upheavals of the time. The song, “Questions: 67 & 68” featured an audio collage of the 1968 Chicago riots with the chant: “…the whole world’s watching…the whole world’s watching…” over heavily distorted guitar feedback and rising, ominous horn blasts. Chicago was, in the day, a band who understood the power of music to a culture. While Chicago has continued to echo their city namesake, they transplanted to Los Angeles where they built their reputation as the house band at the Bitter End. Over time, the band lost its original rock roots (after the accidental “Russian Roulette” suicide of leader/guitarist, Terry Kath), and by the early nineties was considered a pop or soft rock band, whose fortunes declined as the music charts moved to punk, in turn “grunge”, then hiphop.

Chicago, in 2014, needed to revive their artistic “cred”, and “NOW” features some harder-edged music, including the extremely modern production styles of “Naked in the Garden of Allah” and “More Will Be Revealed” , both co-penned by founding member, Robert Lamn.

Chicago attempted this return to roots first, in 1994, when they went into seclusion with producer, Peter Wolf, to record “The Stone of Sisyphus” — a jazzier, more rock-oriented album that was rejected by Warner Brothers Records, and resulted in Chicago departing the label, and the departure of guitarist, Dwayne Bailey. The album was later released in 2008 on Rounder Records—after two decades of the band being largely a touring ensemble playing their past hits and releasing albums like “Big Band” and “The Christmas Album”, along with several live recordings.

The band, with a revamped line-up, stood to gain much with a powerful new “statement” in their 2014 release. Their image has largely been shadowed by their 1980s era music produced by pop producer, David Foster. While continuing to sell records, they also lost their core rock sound in favor of mainstream “adult contemporary” radio-friendly hits. Even with a series of other producers, the band lost their “edge”, but sustained popularity because of their superb musical skills, and despite the departure of founding member and lead singer, Peter Cetera. “NOW” features a cover that seemingly “captures” the visual eye, even as these new songs seek to grab the ears and hearts of the listeners. Oddly, the re-styled Chicago logo (the band’s visual icon since the beginning) looks oddly: HYPNOTIC. Here we have a mandala motif and commentary on the media itself:


“This televised democracy (we seek protection, we seek protection)
Such adolescent fantasy (we seek refuge, we seek refuge)
Random access to content
I think we’re naked in the garden of Allah (Allah)

We are artless, we are violent
We are poison, we are broken

Pie in the sky and gingerbread (we seek protection, we seek protection)
We never meant to get in bed (we seek refuge, we seek refuge)
With wannabe intelligentsia
I think we’re naked in the garden of Allah”

– Robert Lamn, “Naked In The Garden Of Allah”, from Chicago XXXVI: “NOW”

YES-”Heaven and Earth”

YES, like Chicago, needed to stabilize, and reclaim their mantle. The band has toured tirelessly for three years with the current line-up, including successful cruise tours featuring a “progressive rock” package of onboard concerts, smaller jam sessions, and numerous guest acts, including members of Genesis, ELP, King Crimson and other “prog” luminaries. The challenge lay ahead in the question: could they successfully translate this band back into a viable recording unit and achieve the standards of “Fragile”, Close To The Edge”, and their breakout 1971, “The YES Album”? In early 2014, they met in Los Angeles and began recording, with producer Roy Thomas Baker, the tracks for what became “Heaven & Earth”.

“One glimpse, way out
Of the ethereal
Electric revelation
Or just imagination
Venturing to find
The victory of game
It’s all a state of mind’ -Jon Davison, “Subway Wall” from YES: “Heaven & Earth”

Very much both a return to form, and oddly sounding more like YES around their 1970-era sound of “Time And A Word”; they merge the high tenor vocals and mystical lyrics of the Jon Anderson-era with a more compressed delivery. Howe’s signature guitars are more forefront, keyboards, elegantly played by Downes, tend to serve the songs rather than dominate, as they had in the Rick Wakeman and Patrick Moraz eras.

The songs are shorter (longest , “Subway Walls” clocking in at just over 9 minutes), crisply produced, and sounding cohesive and more organic than any YES album in two decades, “Heaven & Earth” moves YES back to their creative heights. Interestingly, YES has, since the “Fragile” album used very conscious imagery to convey their particular message, largely (though not exclusively) through the graphic designs of Roger Dean, who designed their logo and has done many of their album covers and stage designs.

For “Heaven & Earth” there was a conscious decision to include Dean in the overall “arc” of the album’s conceptual thrust. Steve Howe states:

“I don’t know whether it’s a concept record in the true sense, but basically Roger Dean and I were talking about different things and sometimes it helps to get Roger fired up about ideas that we can draw from. In a way, the parallel of saying ‘Heaven And Earth’ is the same as saying good and bad, yin and yang, up and down, left and right. They’re two extremes, but I think the way Roger and I liked it was that in fact the Earth is a physical place where you can measure stuff and you can do quantum physics.”

Those who grew up in the classic rock era (1970s) are likely aware of the mystical imagery, streaming consciousness, and deliberate hypnotic devices via music, rhythms, imagery, lighting, and later, video screens. The world is a multi-sensory experience which these children of Marshal McLuhan both understood and gained the technology to exploit.

The early masters, The Beatles (or their “creators”) forged the path to a musical experience which opera (the first multimedia form) only glimpsed. The Grateful Deaddead-cairo certainly perfected the mass-hypnosis rock event at Gizeh, Cairo Egypt in 1978, when they produced a “standing wave” trance state live. That it could be used to generate social and psychological effects is part of why we are both fascinated by—and also need to be wary of—the intended memes that are generated.

That popular music, especially rock (and especially The Beatles) is a well-financed, purpose-driven media mechanism that has been exploited to drive social changes and create hypnotic states is not new, nor is it a modern concept: think of the Roman Empire and the campaigns of “Bread and Circuses”that were used for mind control. It is also not controversial to those who have studied it at depth…and THAT is the subject for another blog post. Think upon these things.

Chris Holly: Hypnotism and Abductees – How Those Taken Differ In Opinion

Chris Holly: Hypnotism and Abductees – How Those Taken Differ In Opinion

“…the subject of using hypnotism as a method of recall is split between allowing hypnotism attempts and those who absolutely want nothing to do with it.” -Chris Holly
 
I have spent the last decade talking to, interviewing, and writing about people who have had encounters with abduction, lost time or sightings up close and personal with unidentified beings and or objects, I have made it a habit to ask those involved with these topics what they think about hypnotism being used to induce the memory of those who cannot remember what took place during their encounters.
I know it is widely accepted in the paranormal community to use hypnotism as part of a research attempt to try to bring forward information from those who have had experiences that include memory loss. I also know from years of talking to the people who experience this events that the subject of using hypnotism as a method of recall is split between allowing hypnotism attempts and those who absolutely want nothing to do with it.
I have found over the years that those who come forward to report strange experiences fall into two categories. One is of people who do not seem to have encountered any fear from their strange event or harm and the other, of course, are the people who have been traumatized, terrified, and at times physically harmed by what they either saw or experienced.  
It quickly became apparent to me that those who had encounters that did not frighten or cause harm to the people were the majority of those who agreed to be hypnotized.
On the other side of the coin are the people who had experiences that were terrifying, upsetting and in many cases caused physical harm and trauma to them.  This group of experiencer I found by large majority to be against any form of hypnotism. The fact is many were as terrified of being hypnotized as they were of the actual event. 
I do not interview or write often about abductions where the experience is reported as harmless or where those involved are in no way frightened. I do not write about those who report happy or productive encounters with other life forms. This part of the UFO subject does not interest me due to the fact I have not spent the time needed to have the knowledge  needed in order to properly write about it. I have spent my time interviewing abductees who had the other type of lost time abduction. I also have personal experience with this type of encounter so have focused my attention when writing more towards that type of event. 
I can say without question that the overall percentage of people who have had to endure the more intense  type of experience are close to 90 % against any type of hypnotism or attempt of memory regression with a clear hard rejection when anyone even suggests this idea to them.
The reasons range from terror of having recall of an event they already know was horrifying to fear they will be harmed by way of the hypnotism.
The thinking of these abductees is that their abductors have methods and technology far advanced to anything here on earth which clearly means there are no humans on this earth that really have any idea what was done to them while they were taken.
They do know they had their memory altered or blocked as well as other things done to them physically. They  know that techniques were used on them that we have yet to understand or conquer. Allowing a human without the skill to understand what was done to them try to hypnotize or venture into an area they know little about that occurred while the person was abducted  could end in devastating consequences to the abductee.
 What if the act of hypnotism caused trauma to the abductee’s brain sending them into convulsions or seizures? What if the hypnotism caused a reaction to what already had been done to the abductee causing a complete memory loss of everything leaving void of all memory at all? What if the act of trying to hypnotize the abductee annoyed those who abducted them causing yet another abduction to take place to redo what the human hypnotist damaged? 
The possibilities of why this could be devastating to the abductee is endless . They feel they have had enough abuse at the hands of their abductors and care not to chance any other harm by way of those who have no idea what was done to them in the first place. 
I admit that I agree completely with this thinking and would never allow anyone to hypnotize me.  I was the one who was victimized and do not care to benefit your life by possibly harming mine. I choose not to allow that to happen and believe there are far better ways to conduct research in these subjects. To sum it up many lost time memory or abductees who have little recall of a or partial memory only of their abduction will tell you they find the idea of hypnotism both frightening and repugnant.
Since we do not understand how or why or what was done to the people who are abducted  the abductees  feel it is dangerous and extremely irresponsible to simply charge in with what may be extremely primitive methods by alien abilities to areas we do not have any information or knowledge about.  It is the basic reason why I would never allow anyone to hypnotize me.
What if it caused extreme damage to my mind and brain that could not be repaired? What if it brought back memories so severe it caused a serious body reaction like a heart attack or worse? What if it brought back those who blocked the memories in the first place to correct the interference of what they have done for reasons only they understand? I certainly do not want to chance any of those things happening to me. Would you?  
And so the case of pro and con hypnotism being used in abduction cases seems to continue with the lines drawn between the two groups of people who have encountered strange events leaving them without full recall. I suppose those who feel they have had a good experience will continue to allow hypnotism to be used in an effort to gain more information. I also know those who have had difficult abductions as well as physical harm will also continue to consider the idea of being hypnotized by  a mere human after being aware of what their abductors were capable of a repulsive idea. 
I continue to stand firm against hypnotism and abduction cases as I feel it is extremely dangerous to the victims and think of it as just a continued form of abuse brought to them by those who have no right or skill to do so. 
Remember that the abductees did not ask for, want or deserve being taken against their will and used like lab rats. My feeling is that they have been kidnapped, abused, physically altered and should not be used or abused any further. I have no idea what those who do regression using hypnotism  would do or could do if they caused a severe reaction to the abductee during a hypnotism  event or worse caused a new abduction where the poor victim was not returned only to meet a fate none of us could even imagine.
It is of course the right of anyone who has had to endure this type of encounter to make their own judgments on this subject. I respect whatever decisions they feel is right for them. All I ask is that they consider all sides of this issue when going about the aftermath of an unknown event making sure your well-being and safety s comes first and  foremost  during any research or exchange with those who were not part of the experience.  
Living in a world full of so many things we do not understand can be difficult, wonderful, incredible, dangerous and extreme. The only way to survive all the unknowns that may come your way is to be aware at all times of not only your surroundings but of those who share this time and space with you.
I wish you only good days and happy nights and please be careful out there!

A Space of Time…

It’s not lost on me that it has been a month since our last live show for OffPlanet Radio. As I noted on the websites, the passing over of a beloved Elder of our family triggered the extended hiatus. Along with the planning and work that needed to be done for the scheduled Camp Hill II Energy and Healing Summit with Duncan and Miranda, there were also personal challenges for co-host, Chris Holly, who has had numerous family and health issues over the past month. 

I note and express thanks for the kind wishes of listeners and friends that have been sent, along with some queries about the lack of activity. First, I don’t believe in “death”, as we morbidly know it, but I do honor the process of transition. I also know how to take cues from the cycles of Universe to obey the soul and body’s needs to rest, contemplate, and refresh. 

Second, I don’t believe in “time”, in the literal, linear sense…that’s a matrix concept. What we call time is punctuations in a vast field of experience we call our “physical life”. The processes of birth and death (I have experienced both in the last six month period) are parentheses of what is just one phase of our ever-unfolding now-ness. It is not an inconsequential thing to stop and ponder; to rest and reflect, and not allow unique moments to simply pass without learning what they can teach us. 

I also sensed that the show, and my own energies were beginning to feel somewhat tired—and by that I do not mean we did bad shows…the energies were simply tilting and we needed to step back and regroup. Both Chris Holly and I felt it was a time to reboot the show, and our own individual projects. So, while there have not been new shows recently, there is a tremendous amount of “back catalog” on both of our sites to partake.

Humans love novelty…the next “new” thing; often without really stopping to savor the things already sown. The western mindset of endless production and novely is another trap of the matrix mindset. The proverbial hamster wheel. And we do well to break the cycles. Without rest…the still point…there can arise no creative energetics waves. We need to observe the laws of Universe, not the laws of the matrix reality.

I will also note that I have been extremely challenged in keeping up with correspondence. Again, we are very limited in the handling of communications, as both Chris and myself do not have a support staff. If I have missed an email, phone call, or message from you, I apologize. Kindly re-send if you wish…or I will eventually reply as I sort through hundreds of unanswered messages. I also wish to deeply acknowledge and THANK those who continue to support us with gifts and donations…you deserve more than I can ever express…we send you a force field of much love.

We will continue the live shows on July 17, 2013, with guests to be announced. In the months to come we hope to provide not just new content (novelty), but a new vision and vitality towards the broad scope of the paranormal, consciousness, spirituality, and the future “now” of humanity. Stay tuned.

Anonymous Group Liberates BofA Data…Spying on private citiziens

Anonymous Group Liberates BofA Data…Spying on private citiziens

The hacktivist group, Anonymous is claiming to have leaked volatile data, over 14GB, from a server located in Israel where, in part, was stored information on Bank of America’s spying activites on private citizens. The Anonymous intel group group Par:AnoIA, claims this was not a hacking mission, but rather data stored on an unsecured server. 

In addition to the BofA data, the cache also has information linked to Bloomberg, Thomson Reuters, TEKSystems, and data mining software company ClearForest, owned by Thomson Reuters. In the PDF Press release, Par:AnoIA notes the following noteworthy aspects of the data cache:

  •  Detailed data about hundreds of thousands of executives and employees from various global corporations, including salary information.
  • That BofA and others are contracting other companies (Thomson/Reuters/ClearForest)to spy and collect data on private citizens
  • The overall quality of the research is poor and potentially false; termed by the hacker group as “sloppy, random, and valueless”
  • The collected data was stored insecurely and could have been retrieved by anyone.
  • The data, stored on an open misconfigured server in Tel Aviv, the base of ClearForest.
  • Probably more disturbing: the location on the same server of ClearForest’s text analysis software, OneCalais—and source code that appears to be a version or module for BofA (based on the file  naming conventions).
Par:AnoIA: Potentially Alarming Research:
Anonymous Intelligence Agency
Article: Vice.com

Armchair Analysis:

Several useful points to consider, pending the release of the details of this data cache: 

 

  • While Par:AnoIA terms the data mining as “poor, potentially false…sloppy and valueless”, we would not concur with that final term, “useless”. Large corporate data mining and aggregation, by definition is inaccurate, and even false. Its exact potential is not in its accuracy, but in its deployment against persons whom it could adversely affect.

 

Anyone who has ever seriously checked their credit reports from major credit bureaus KNOWS that not only is the information highly questionable, but much of it is false, and even contrived. Understand, there is no such thing as “True Data” in the world of electronic records. It is the RECORDS, themselves, which hold power as they are assumed to be “authoritative”, especially emanating from corporate entities such as ClearForest (what an ominous name!)

 

  • That exotic software, such as OneCaalais—and the source code for application-specific modifications are deposited on an unsecure server, along with mined data, indicates that this rampant orgy of data collection represents a menace to every person, free or bond. 

Consider, that OneCalais is actually an artificial intelligence algorithm which, according to ClearForest’s own description:  “use(s) Natural Language Processing (NLP), text analytics and data mining technologies to derive meaning from unstructured information, including news articles, blog posts, research reports and more.” In other words, it is surveillance technology harvesting profiles from the internet for corporate intelligence. It is the “and more” which should concern us.

Key word search “INSLAW, PROMIS, CIA”, or read the Wired Magazine archive article on “The INSLAW Octopus”, and then ponder we are now three decades past that technology which was described as: “Converted to use by intelligence agencies, as has been alleged in interviews by ex-CIA and Israeli Mossad agents, PROMIS can be a powerful tracking device capable of monitoring intelligence operations, agents and targets, instead of legal cases.”

 Read the history of INSLAW and PROMIS, and understand that in the 1970s software had evolved to a place then, which is being lightly hinted at now by ClearForest’s OneCalais software. Assume that by now it is entirely AI, and capable of heurisitics unimagined by the Reagan spooks like Ollie North. AND—it is in the hqnds of international corporations, specifically Israelis.

Evening the playing field a bit: Anonymous has released the OneCalais software onto the web as a torrent. May the geeks on the side of light now begin their exploits. We need them. Cheers!

Farsight Institute: Did we dodge the bullet on the coastal global Earth changes?

In what some have referred to as “weasling out”, Dr. Courtney Brown has issued the following video explaining that the very large February 13, 2013 Russian meteor shower, which hit Siberia, WAS the predictedf event seen in the Farsight Study of 2008. While some will criticize Dr. Brown for his comments, and have even hinted he was “paid off” by TPTB, I will remind the readers that I wrote abou this PROBABLISTIC ASPECT of RV in my article of August 1, 2012:

“One other important point: Remote Viewing is PROBABLISTIC. Bear in mind how probablities are compounded when analyzing data from multiple sources. There are X-Factors is all of these RV outcomes, and multiple time lines and the influence of the collective human consciousness all play into the results relative to predictability….

Above all—no outcome is a “done deal”, nor should one assume a fatalistic attitude. Each human is the determiner of their own individual fate. Never neglect the spiritual aspects and focus on the leading of YOUR intuitions and spiritual development. Doomsday scenarios have a balance in the intentions and personal soul state of each person. The “take away” is be awake and trust in the Divine spark that is within each one of us.”

In this video update, Dr. Brown concludes that 15 February 2013 meteor event over Russia, the largest since the Tunguska event, coupled with the close approach of the roughly 50 metre asteroid2012 DA14 thar occurred about 15 hours later may constitute the meteor or asteroid event referenced in the Farsight Institute study, which predicted a global coastal event destroying most coastal cities on the planet in June 2013. Dr. Brown states he does no expect any other meteor or coastal event between February 16, 2013 and June 1, 2013 based on the Farsight study. Dr. Brown refers to the holographic nature of reality and to the his remote viewers having possibly viewed a global coastal event happening in June 2013 on Earth in some other timeline or holographic version of Earth or parallel universe.

Threading the needle, connecting dots, the more you see, the more you see: some of this may explain the sudden exit stage left of Pope Ratzinger, and the quivering of thighs in the City of London, as the minions of depravity come undone.

Pope Seeks Immunity Protection from Italian President

Pope Benedict, Joseph Ratzinger, has scheduled a meeting with Italian President Giorgio Napolitano for Saturday, February 23 to discuss securing protection and immunity from prosecution from the Italian government, according to Italian media sources.

Ratzinger’s meeting follows upon the apparent receipt by the Vatican of a diplomatic note from an undisclosed European government on February 4, stating its intention to issue an arrest warrant for Ratzinger, who resigned from his pontificate less than a week later.

In response to the February 23 meeting, the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State (ITCCS), through its field Secretary, Rev. Kevin Annett, has written to President Napolitano, asking him to refrain from assisting Ratzinger in evading justice.

Rome:
In a statement to Reuters today, Vatican officials announced that Joseph Ratzinger will remain a permanent resident of Vatican City after his resignation. Doing so will offer him legal protection from any attempt to prosecute him in connection with sexual abuse cases around the world, Church sources said today
“His continued presence in the Vatican is necessary, otherwise he might be defenseless”.
This startling admission of guilt by the church is also a direct obstruction of justice, and lends more weight to the charge by the ITCCS and others that the Vatican has arranged with the Italian government to shield Ratzinger from criminal prosecution, in violation of international laws ratified by Italy.

Backdrop: 

I talked about Penn State and the trafficking networks that criss-cross various principalities in my February 5, 2013 interview by James Martinez on his Cash Flow radio show. These networks are linked to central corridors of wealth, intelligence ops, politco and priestly debauchery, and organized crime syndicates., worldwide.

Posted here is a summary:

  •  The Jesuit order opened Fairfield University in Connecticut on the country estate of oil executive Brewster Jennings.
  • Brewster Jennings became closely associated with the CIA.
  • Fairfield University reportedly recruited people for the CIA.
  • J D Salinger, of Russian Jewish descent, worked for US intelligence and was involved in bringing Nazi scientists into the USA.
  • Salinger lived near Fairfield University in Connecticut.
  • Dr. Sidney Gottlieb (the pseudonym of Joseph Schieder) ran the main mind-control (MK ULTRA) lab at Jesuit-run Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.
  • In Connecticut, Salinger wrote The Catcher in the Rye, “which contains the command code-words for MK-ULTRA assassins.”  (and remember well that it was Mark David Chapman, the John Lennon assassin-of-record, found hold a copy after shooting the exc-Beatle).

 Note: we will break more information about this out in the February 27, OffPlanet Radio Live show with Joe DiToma, researcher and author of “Cult of the Black Sun”

Child Porn Hub for New York and Washington
By Yoichi Shimatsu
12-20-12
 
Whatever its genteel image of colonial homes and autumnal foliage, Connecticut has a sleazy underside embedded in its servant pool, welfare households and the chronic unemployed. Bridgeport, with its low-income Puerto Rican population, is a major center for prostitution and recruitment of prostitutes for VIP clients in New York and the nation’s capital.
 
The pedophile rings have a social-economic hierarchy ­ at the top are the VIP clients, then the intermediaries, often Catholic priests or social-services managers, further down the ladder the operatives losers recruited from prep schools and college campuses – and finally the supply itself – money-hungry willing parents and the unwillingly abducted children.
 
Newtown, like Fairfield and Stamford, is part of the Diocese of Bridgeport, which got into legal trouble in 2001 due to lawsuits by 23 victims of pedophilia committed by priests. Bishop Edward Egan, then diocese head, was a protector of sexual offender priests, sending them to other areas when parental complaints reached the ears of the police. After the plaintiffs won an out-of-court settlement, the Diocese petitioned the US Supreme Court to quash the thousands of documents detailing the beastly sex crimes. In 2009 Opus Dei honcho Justice Antonin Scalia determined that the court records should not be made public.

In this past year’s pedophile scandal at Penn State, another Opus Dei leader, former FBI director Louis Freeh, was hired as a consultant by the Nittany Lions football team. His whitewash report put most of the blame on head coach Joe Paterno, while suppressing the names and backgrounds of the wealthy and powerful boosters who were provided sexual services from the young football players.
 
In Connecticut, the Vatican had an interest in wiping the slate clean, and so did the CIA. The clean slate turned out to be a bloody mess.
 
Agency-Spawned Pedophiles
 
The MK-ULTRA program that reached into campuses across Connecticut quickly created a human garbage heap of wrecked minds and twisted souls. The child abuse and drugs routinely administered to young trainees led to a permanent social fixture of sadism and sexual abuse throughout New England from the gutter up to the governing class. 
 
In 2011, a Newtown resident named Edwin Wilson was arrested for having a months-long sexual relationship with a 4-year-old girl and producing child-porn videos of their sexual encounters. The arrest was a part of a wide crackdown order the state attorney general, Richard Blumenthal ­ which boosted his successful campaign in the U.S. Senate race. Other cases included: a 24-year-old Hispanic male in Hartford who shot videos of sex with a pre-teen girl; a DJ in Plainfield arraigned on similar charges, an older theater and film teacher accused of using Taft school’s equipment to make kiddie porn ­ the list goes on in sickening detail. Fairfield University, where MK-ULTRA was implanted into New England, recently saw two staffers implicated in the rape of 23 Haitian boys during the earthquake relief effort.
 
Adam Lanza fits the profile of a pedophile-ring recruit ­ young enough to approach children at the local schools and in the churches, possessing the computer skills to produce child-porn videos and typically passive-aggressive in personality. The Lanzas attended the Saint Rosa of Lima Church, where eight child parishioners were among the shooting victims. Santa Rosa is the very same order that sponsors the western-state hospital that employed Michael Jackson’s physician Dr. Conrad Murray. As in the case of Jackson’s Neverland, after a child-sex experiment blossoms, it must be shut down. Read the whole article
