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 state 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.
The 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
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 Dead 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.
Everett Hallford, a personal friend, and an author and screenwriter, interviewed by James Martinez on Cash Flow—the blockbuster copyright lawsuit that details Hollywoood’s corruption in the wholesale stealing of creative works. Remember SOPA? Recall how THEY want to throttle the public’s access to content on the internet? Remember how they SUED moms and little kids for “piracy”…and how they want to shut down The Pirate Bay…rather than innovate and provide novel NEW ways to distribute true creativity, the Hollywood cabal continues to pummel the “everyman”. Remember that when you hear this story. This is the game: high roller writers and producers sign global marketing deals on the backs of screenwriters who are lured into sharing their work—even their lives!
Exclusive Interview by Screenwriter Everett Hallford tells his story.
“The Medium is the Message.” Marshall McLuhan Marshall McLuhan theorized that the medium is the message, that society is shaped by the way in which we communicate rather than what we are communicating. The Internet, the emerging online community, have given the world unprecedented access to information via light speed online. Today are we confirming McLuhan’s hypothesis? Unfortunately, the information environment has launched a civil war within copyright law. Congress has periodically, but consistently modified copyright laws to respond to the introduction of new technologies affecting copyright. Although Congress passed the Copyright Act of 1976 to cope with emerging technology, no one anticipated the explosion of digital technology which has marked the digital age.
IN a Worldwide First, the new 20th Century Fox Drama “Touch” will launch in more than 100 countries worldwide with global marketing support and a Global advertising sponsor. Touch, the intriguing new drama series from Tim Kring (Heroes) and starring Kiefer Sutherland in his first television project since the Emmy-winning 24, will receive an unprecedented global launch for its March series premiere that includes coordinated worldwide distribution, marketing and advertising sponsorship. In a television first, Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution, Fox Broadcasting Company, FOX One, 20th Century Fox Television and FOX International Channels are collaborating on a worldwide launch for the series, which will premiere nearly simultaneously in more than 100 countries. To kick off the series’ global marketing efforts, Sutherland will embark on an international media tour, stopping in several major cities across Europe and culminating in a global media event in New York City on March 18 – a date that figures prominently in Touch’s pilot episode. In another industry first, Unilever has come on board as the series’ global advertising sponsor in a one-of-a-kind partnership designed to bring Touch to a worldwide audience. Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution has secured deals in over 160 markets with some of the world’s leading broadcasters and pan-regional platforms. The global launch will make the much-anticipated drama available on channels all around the world, including Global Television in Canada, Sky 1 in the United Kingdom, ProSieben in Germany, Yes TV in Israel and Channel One in Russia. FOX International Channels will launch the series in 64 countries throughout Latin America, Asia and Europe. Now, for the first time we will discuss the truth about the origins of this series as well as the media ecological ramifications of copyright, law and justice in world where theft of property in Hollywood occurs everyday. Under digital circumstances can ownership of property exist? Does the average writer, artist and musician have a claim in there original works and will justice prevail?

Yesterdays article, The Global Economic Opera: Hypnosis , was the opening volley on a whole series of “triggers” employed by cults which are rampant on the internet. By no means exclusive, but certainly a dominant force, is Scientology, which cleverly plants its agents into the streams of internet “chatter” to create conditions by which the “Church” may gain advantage through constant cycling of repetitve churning of confusion and obfuscation.
The language of that article was VERY deliberate—it was, itself, a TRIGGER pattern designed to expose and thwart the systematic deployment of cognitive dissonance now exploding on the human consciousness scale. The following from L. Ron Hubbard should completely spotlight the curent churning of patterns and memes in a posture of mass hypnotic suggestion.
L. Ron Hubbard Lecture, 20 May 1952 “Decision.”
“A confused person has their conscious mind busy and occupied, and is very much inclined to draw upon unconscious learnings to make sense of things. A confused person is in a trance of their own making – and therefore goes readily into that trance without resistance. Confusion might be created by ambiguous words, complex or endless sentences, pattern interruption or a myriad other techniques to incite transderivational searches, (TDS.) (A psychological example of TDS is in Ericksonian hypnotherapy, where vague suggestions are used that the patient must process intensely to find their own meanings for, thus ensuring that the practitioner does not intrude his own beliefs into the subject’s inner world.)
When employing the confusion technique verbally, steps are taken via verbal wording to overload the subject’s mental abilities. This can be done using a play on words such as “knows, nose, nos.” Furthermore, irrelevancies and nonsequiturs can also be employed to achieve the desired results.”
Hubbard hereby cites Erickson:
“A confused person has their conscious mind busy and occupied, and is very much inclined to draw upon unconscious learnings to make sense of things. A confused person is in a trance of their own making – and therefore goes readily into that trance without resistance. Confusion might be created by ambiguous words, complex or endless sentences, pattern interruption or a myriad of other techniques to incite transderivational searches.”- Milton H. Erickson with respect to using the “Confusion technique” in Ericksonian Hypnosis, circa 1948.
While Hubbard’s techniques, those of Scientology, are deployed in a session to individuals, by no means are these techniques exclusive to Scientology’s internal programming. If one takes the time to analyze the programming which occurs now in mass scale in media, we find the SAME methods being used to steer the collective consciousness.
How many times do you hear the term “Alice In Wonderland” used directly, or indirectly to the subculture dealing with subjects such as “mind control”, UFOs, conspiracy theories, “whistleblowers”…etc.? Now pay closer attention to the interogatory…pay closer attention to HOW these subjects are fused to a suspension of judgement (McLuhan) or even a deliberate confusion to create a state of disassociative behavior.
Now you can better assess the collective electronic environment, and its effects on destabilizing coherent decision-making, assessment, and rational behavior. These devices flow perfectly in a mixed-media electronic environment and are cleverly used by agents to install cognitive dissonance via a state of internalized trance.
The Dark Art of Interrogation
Then there is “Alice in Wonderland.”
The aim of the Alice in Wonderland or confusion technique is to confound the expectations and conditioned reactions of the interrogatee … The confusion technique is designed not only to obliterate the familiar but to replace it with the weird … Sometimes two or more questions are asked simultaneously. Pitch, tone, and volume of the interrogators’ voices are unrelated to the import of the questions. No pattern of questions and answers is permitted to develop, nor do the questions themselves relate logically to each other.
**If this technique is pursued patiently, the manual says, the subject will start to talk “just to stop the flow of babble which assails him.”
So now we see the endless “babbling” so omnipresent all over the web!
The story below is what now passes for “NEWS/INTEL” on the web. Do you believe it? Do you WANT to believe it?
Marshall McLuhan stated:
“The method of the twentieth century is to use not single but multiple models for for experimental exploration-the technique of suspended judgment.” (The Gutenberg Galaxy, pg. 71)
Consumers of media in the post-digital culture continually combat, to the point of fatigue, the torrents of biased viewpoints; even those of the absurdist bent, which by sheer volume distort the perceptual will. We are repeatedly subjected to elevated levels of hyperbole, irrational scenarios, and streams of non-sequitur. Images of words, cut-and-pasted, repeated, remixed, looped, and mashed-up in endless nuanced rethreads.
The attribution is dead. rumors are fact; the de facto meme is sovereign…the culture acidwashed by blips that coarse in nanoseconds…the screen flash, the lost search engine; “real lies”—the currency by which traders of the missing asterisk sustain their legerdemain.
Responsible journalism was a gleam in its mother’s eye before the abortion. “Controlled media” may be the inference, but it is merely the epithet spoken by those who traffic in a more subtle form of Jedi Mind Trick: the missing contextual inference of the “we” who speaks with knowing authority. Subliminal gang-stalking is the new methodology. Shadowy sources, half-spoken (written) references; the profiles of the social net—virtual egos that shift and recast themselves against an endless strobing backdrop.
Not so much “suspended judgment”, as an aerial wire act of shifting, ever-changing perceptions. “Real” today is tomorrow’s discarded opinion. The hidden consensus pushes against the mind’s eye in rapid scans of the ever-deepening confluence. Surreal is the new real. No one needs to prove anything now…it all floats like a smoke ring until it dissolves into—”multiple models for for experimental exploration”… visual awareness is the new courier of collective consciousness.
McLuhan advanced that if all aspects of our common reality were distilled into a single sensory gate “we shall have a distortion that is scientific because (it is) consisten and coherent…the dominance of one sense is the formula for hypnosis“ (The Gutenberg Galaxy, ppg. 72-73)
The ongoing Global Economic Opera is a marvel of abstracted multimedia mojo (multimedia=multiple senses streaming as ONE sense). No one offers proof, the private disclosure is “coin of the realm”; credibility hinges, now, on the ability to flip info into newer and more elevated forms; “reality TV” streams 24/7…THIS is the HYPNOSIS:
Thursday, March 1, 2012INTEL ON ARRESTS – GATES, GEITHNER, KISSINGER — MUST READ This is one of those Rare “FASTEN YOUR SEATBELTS” Intel reports. I received permission from higher ups to post this as You All Need To Know. According to several high level and down the rabbit hole sources, this was relayed to me.These are rumors and yet to be verified. Use discernment.Geithner, our ‘in-trouble ‘Fed Treasury boy was detained and is now under protective custody. In the questioning process, he revealed all the alleged attempted thefts of George Bush Sr. related to the Global Settlements and PP distributions.George Bush Sr. under questioning revealed that Bill Gates’s team was responsible for the software controlled hacking of the accounts. Over 40 trap doors were discovered that directed stolen funds to be deposited in offshore accounts of Bush Sr, Obama and others. These have been found and plugged by the White Knights Computer Experts with Galactic Assistance.Bill Gates was flown to China for a nasty confrontation on the matter. It is alleged that Bill Gates is now under arrest & protective custody. He is alleged being charged with over 30 counts of treason. It also alleged that Bill Gates was the one delaying the RV as he had control of the red button which interfered with the processing.It is also alleged that Henry Kissinger is under arrest as well as many of the Dark Cabal Families.The Dark Cabal Rats are panicky and turning on each others. They are threatening to kill each other and that is one reason they are under protective custody.As always this intel is written on jello and may change anytime.Thank You White Knights, Thank You Galactics, Thank You LORD
Look closely at the semantics here because it is the mechanism of the visual awareness: “higher ups” give permission for this breathless gush (block-style, no paragraphs, run-on narrative) of non-info to be posted; White Knight Computer Experts (with Galactic Assistance, no less) vs. Microsoft/Gates in plugging financial software backdoors…OH! By the way, Kissinger was arrested (which one, maybe the clone Kissinger)…homicidal imbred elites gunning for each other…and WTF is the “red button”? Of course, if you ASK…YOU do not “know” (wink, wink).
So how many Galctic Councils does it take to bring down the cabal? Five. But it’s an imaginary number. Dratzo! indeed.
Bill Wood, a/k/a-Bill BrockbraderBill Wood a/k/a Bill Brockbrader is now methodically unraveling some of the distortions that came from his initial public contact via the Project Camelot interviews. The subject of “mind control” is really at the core of all this reporting on Project Camelot and the various offshhoot threads…If you have not done so, please read Shootout At the Camelot Corral-Part 2: Mental Hate Crime for more on this subject.
While I grow weary of the subject of Project Camelot, I also think that regardless of where you come down in the battles there, it is instructive to see how the “MC” topic swirls through all of it. For those who insist that Camelot has done “good work” we would say “yes”…but is truth served by hidden agendas and a double-minded views of mind control? The issues of Kerry’s interview style aside, she also employs triggers in her methodology. You might call them manipulation…same thing. lesser degree.
This new release from Bill demonstrates how the usage of peer pressure, social engineering,and “logical reasoning” via SEAL, Steve Robinson in his posts to SEAL, Michael Jaco, who had posted that he recalled Brockbrader from SEAL BUD/s training (see the screen shots in the More Truth Revealed by Bill Brockbrader.pdf ). Even if you are not sure about Bill’s story, at least look at the effects of this social pressuring mechanism to unravel the man’s confidence—in a public (Facebook) forum. Understand that this is the initial phase of what is called “gang stalking“, and it occurs online, repeatedly, day after day. I know, I myself have been a victim of it many times on public forums, and it follows a very precise pattern.
Mind control (also known as brainwashing, coercive persuasion, mind abuse, thought control, or thought reform) refers to a process in which a group or individual “systematically uses unethically manipulative methods to persuade others to conform to the wishes of the manipulator(s)-Langone, Michael. “Cults: Questions and Answers”. www.csj.org. International Cultic Studies Association.
As Michael Jaco states in an email to Bill:
“I have never had any attacks against my character like I have when I came forward and said that I recognized you in training.”
Also telling is Micahel Jaco’s admission of how young girls are used to compromise SEALS (and this ties into other MKUltra-style operations, such as Monarch, which train young girls to be triggered into advancing sexual favors to “targets”—understand that this a very well used means of COMPROMISING people for later control, if they fall out of the control grid) with compromised sexual interactions. Jacko also indicates that his “Hell Week” log had been removed from the records.
Something that needs to be clarified is the usage of the term, “pedophile” in regards to Bill’s sex offender record. A pedophile is a repeated offender of young children…not a one time fling with planted “jailbait”. If, as Bill claims, the girl in question was 15 years old (while he was at the time, 25 years old) this does not even stand as a statutory rape offense in California. The Navy may have different standards, but the NCIS investigation records are apparently sealed to public scrutiny. That the military has long “winked” at the sexual practices of its ranks is not news, but the particulars of these incidents are now becoming the focus of increasing interest:
A member of a Navy SEAL support team says she was raped and that her superior dismissed her accusations and degraded her. His response was deemed “an isolated lapse in judgment,” but some say sexual discrimination and harassment are not unheard of in the support unit.
Again, understand that COMPROMISE is the most valuable tool for containing rogue elements, manipulating operatives in military, intelligence, diplomatic corps.; politicians, businessmen, and heads of state. This was a key element of the Artichoke, Monarch, and MKULtra programs:
“Can we get control of an individual to the point where he will do our bidding against his will and even against fundamental laws of nature, such as self-preservation?” -Memo on Project Artichoke, 1952 (Wikipedia)
The Camelot Juggernaut Unravels
The third area which Brockbrader covers in his PDF file is that of—Project Camelot. First, let me say here that Bill is very much of the mind that David Wilcock is straight up in terms of trust and integrity from his view. He has expressed this to me personally in a phone session we had, and again in this article—I will take him on his word and extend the umbrella of trust to David (despite some other questions I have about other incidents):
“Before my first interview, I provided Kerry with an abundance of evidence about my story that I only released to her. Pieces of that information were outed even before my second interview by Don Shipley and the private investigation company via Dennis H. Chevalier. That outing is the event that mandated that I flee to a safe location. A location that Kerry was never able to discover and the only thing that keeps me safe to this day. I would also like to point out that David Wilcock does know the location where Im staying and that my location has not been compromised to date. I believe I owe it to David to speak to his character in regards to my personal experiences with his honesty and integrity.”
And here is where it all gets INTERESTING: on the surface level, it seems that Kerry Cassidy was not honorable is maintaining confidence relative to Bill’s safety!
“Right before the third interview, I was advised not to do the interview as it was discovered that Kerry was going to use it as an opportunity to attempt to get me to violate my confidentiality agreement giving the military a firm legal ground to arrest me on. It was after the third interview that I informed Kerry that I possessed critical information about who was leaking information about me. What everyone has witnessed since that time is her reaction that I possessed the truth.” (Emphasis added—again, see my article: Shootout At the Camelot Corral-Part 2: Mental Hate Crime, which details Cassidy’s response.
Recall what I wrote above about MIND CONTROL: coercive persuasion, mind abuse, thought control, or thought reform—those terms are key to understanding the subtle, and not so subtle manipulations that weave through the various narratives of Kerry Cassidy’s workings. Also recall that back in December, I went after Richard C. Hoagland about his attacks on Gary Legierre, a/k/a “Gary The Mad Martian”…and Kerry’s incredibly cruel statements about Gary on her blog at Camelot—comments unsolicited, and outside the scope of interest (except personal) of Camelot at the time. Remember this…it plays into the next level of lifting the veil on Project Camelot:
“Let me now lay out the evidence as I see it so that others may take a look and make their own determinations. First of all, there was talk of a person named John Jack Burns and he being someone that led to the changes at Camelot between Bill and Kerry.”
in the PDF, Bill shows us “Jack” Burns’ Facebook page which, as Bill points out that “…that NASA appears prominently in the category of interests.” Kerry Cassidy is listed as a long time “friend” (in the Facebook sense) to Jack Burns. But more intriguingly, Bill pulls yet another “thread” that bears noticing:
“So let’s see if we can connect some dots. The following is a link to a NASA Astronaut named Christopher J. Cassidy.
I will point out that he was a former navy SEAL and possesses the same last name as Kerry. Quarky. Also it seems that both Kerry and Jack Burns possess some possible link to NASA as well as the Navy SEALs.” (I will add here that the relationship between Kerry and Cmdr. Christopher Cassidy is, at best tenuous, at this point—perhaps the coincidence of a common surname?)
Follow The Money?
Finally, of interest to the subject, Bill points to another interesting aspect of Project Camelot that goes relatively unexamined:
I also made a sizable donation to Project Camelot after the third interview for the donations that I received from my one dollar campaign and I let some of my ‘friends’ follow the money. Im not going to state any conclusions here but I do feel able to point out some obvious points to everyone. Project Camelot has not been maintaining its viewership as it once had.
Evidence of that can be seen on the view counters of the interview that have been coming out for the last year on Youtube. It is obvious that my interviews havebeen very good for her business and I would assume that I was not the only person to make a sizable donation to her recently. I will also point out that Kerry has announced that she is redesigning her website and that the ‘articles’ tab has disappeared from her site. I would like to be the first to congratulate her getting funds to redesign her site and I appreciate that the hateful article that she posted on her site about me has been removed.
Tying Some Loose Ends Together
Long before the Bill Wood interviews were ever aired, I had begun digging into the connections between Project Camelot and, specifically, NASA. Recall, that Kerry has long been a prominent supporter of Richard C. Hoagland. Even when Hoagland was talking ludicrous, incredible things about Elenin and then YU-55, Cassidy was avidly championing Hoagland on Camelot video interviews, and spotlighting him at the September, 2011 “Awake and Aware Conference”.
Recall, also, that while Hoagland appears to dish on NASA, I am not the first person to question his status as “Ex-NASA” (see “The Cult of NASA and the Hoagland Factor”). In fact, it has been stated on several occassions that it appears Hoagland serves as a sort of “misdirect” foil for NASA, by creating web memes to throw off the trail via clever meme fabrications (a/k/a “The Face On Mars”)—obscuring more critcal information by cleverly focusing on one thing…while averting any notice of the REAL thing. This goes, as well, to the core of the disagreement between former Project Pegasus member, Andrew Basiago and Hoagland (see Project Pegasus and Life On Mars with Andrew Basiago)…Hoagland creates a diversion from the point that Mars has indigenous humanoid life.
In his article, “Do the Owls want to shut down Richard C. Hoagland?” (January 2004), John C. Haich presented the case that Richard Hoagland was, and still is, connected to NASA and to the Center for Security Policy, headed by Neo-Con, Frank Gaffney. So much for being this maverick agency critic!
Hoagland is also fond of citing his work with Walter Cronkite on the coverage for CBS of the Apollo Program. Given the understanding that the Apollo program was scripted (Apollo 11, notably) for public consumption to mask the presence of teams already on not just the Moon, but Mars (again, see Andrew Basiago’s revelations and his quote from his challenge to Hoagland where he states:
“Kerry Cassidy of Project Camelot has informed me that you are part of a faction − one that includes Clark McClelland − that has known that Mars is inhabited but has kept this information secret so that it might be disclosed at a later time.”)
It is long held that “Uncle Walter” was, in fact, a CIA operative (see “Walter Cronkite and the CIA”). Was Richard Hoagland’s career built on his service to intelligence agency media disinformation?
Where does Richard Hoagland intersect with Project Camelot? Given that the history of Project Camelot has been “sanitized”—some early videos apparently removed from the web—and we know only what the “official” bios have told us about the inception of the project; we have to fill in the dots as best we can. One interesting piece of history comes from David Wilcock via his website bio:
Some time around 2003:
“David was also tasked by Richard C. Hoagland to upgrade his interplanetary climate change research to a whole new level, and this necessitated a relieving end to the basement labor by the beginning of April. Up until the Hoagland initiative, David had relied heavily on the work of Russian Dr. Aleskey Dmitriev’s studies to argue that our entire solar system was rapidly becoming brighter, hotter and more energetic. Hoagland insisted that all Russian data needed to be thrown out for the purposes of skeptical Western scientists, and every point needed to be argued from a direct NASA study.
David generated well over a foot of new Internet research books in just a few months as a result of this inspiration, which led to the 2004 “Interplanetary Day After Tomorrow?” article series on Richard’s website, enterprisemission.com, and an appearance on the Art Bell show with Richard, followed by an appearance at the Bay Area UFO Expo later that same year.”
We also learn of the fortunate connections David Wilcock made at a Hoagland conference in 2005:
David first met Billy Blake in February 2005 after a conference at a Science of Mind center in Pasadena on Valentine’s Day. The contacts David made at the Hoagland conference, particularly through Robert Perala, led to this opportunity. Billy was awed by David’s presentation and said that if it were turned into a film, it would be incredible. Thus, the CONVERGENCE film project was born – the realization of the gold-medal prophecy.
So, we can connect Richard Hoagland to David Wilcock as early as 2004. In 2005, Wilcock is moving into Hollywood circles…2006 is around the time Cassidy and Ryan form their partnership. . So here we can only speculate: could the “convergences” which produced the cozy relationships between Camelot, Richard Hoagland and David Wilcock have been forged in a manner designed to create an intel-style “pressure valve” for the burgeoning internet interest into conspiracy theory? We will hold David Wilcock to the side on this…for now, but there are clear linkages between Cassidy and Hoagland that seem to be beyond the normal “business” of Whistleblowers and disclosure.
Given Hoagland’s past work, and the linkages between major media outlets (CBS), NASA, and Frank Gaffney, an apologist for the right wing war policies of the Bush administration in Iraq (Gaffney on Hard Ball with Chris Matthews stated: ” (“…The threat we did know about was the chemical capability that Saddam Hussein had used against his own people. The potential for biological agents were real there was evidence that there was an ongoing nuclear program… The danger was inaction could have resulted in the death[s] of a great many more Americans than 4,000 and that’s the reason I’m still delighted that we did what we did.”), can we not see a valid pattern for exploiting the deep underground culture of the emerging web and the interest in “alternative media”?
Given the connections between Cassidy (Bill Ryan is no longer a viable element of Project Camelot), Richard Hoagland, tangentially, David Wilcock, and more importantly, Jack Burns, we now have a few more pieces of a puzzle…is this a “project” that has been played by “them”…knowingly, or unknowingly, by the principles? Is the whole “alternative media” merely window dressing for a honeypot operation that pulls in viewers to splinter perceptions? Did Project Camelot simply go “off the rails” with the departure of Bill Ryan (and the insertion of Jack Burns)? Or is it simply a victim of the big, beautiful media messs that is the internet in 2012?
