700 Architects Call for "Real" 9/11/2001 Investigation

Amazingly, Fox News' Fresno, California affiliate carries this 7.5 minute interview, at the end of which the female co-anchor confess she's more than a little freaked-out by architect Richard Gage's cataloguing of evidence that supports the view of controlled demolitions brought down the three (yes, three) World Trade Center buildings that fateful day.

Paper Lottery: Which US City Will Be First to Loose Its Daily Newspapers?

The impending demise of mainstream print journalism is a proxy measure of our compromised Fourth Estate: The colossal disparity between urgent post-9/11 news read on the internet and what major U.S. papers instead printed as "news" finally is catching up with those sold-out cowards of mainstream journalism.

Of course, we are compelled to read news item online from a UK news daily:
... Philadelphia has all modern America can offer, for better or worse: wealth, crime, politics, sports, art and culture. But what it might not have soon is a newspaper.

It is running in a race no one wants to win: which major US city will be the first to lose all its daily papers? Los Angeles, Boston, Detroit, San Francisco, Miami, Denver and Newark are just a few of the other reluctant participants. The impact of losing all newspapers in these cities is potentially profound; many fear it would be a blow to American democracy. They worry that the watchdog role the press has played will be removed. The bedrock on which much of civic society has been built since colonial times will start to crumble. Yet one of these cities could lose all print news within a year.
Since the 1980s, internationally renowned social and media critic Noam Chomsky systematically revealed the deeply flawed nature of U.S. print coverage, characterizing American news reporting generally as propaganda --as supportive of anti-democratic thievery promulgated by a national but increasingly global elite.

Doesn't that aptly characterize the Bush-Cheney White House?

The internet and blogosphere's post-9/11 reportage of the B & C White House's democracy fire sale enabled Americans as never before to witness in real time Chomsky's "propaganda model" of US news coverage.

All you Big Papers that refused to tell the truth and stubbornly insulted the intelligence of your readers, I pray your demise is as soon as it is peaceful.

Doofus Boofus Bush

I confess I have moments when I miss unCurious George W. and his inane idiocies he so generously splashed across America's TV screens; I miss all his graceless spiting, nose-scratching, winks, nods, smirks and chronic inability to employ a successful three-syllable word vocabulary.

Bush oratory skills serves as an apt metaphor for the state of American democracy in the 21st century.

Granted, Obama is the kinder-gentler supporter of the wealthy and their fascism who oratory prowess is easy on the eye and ear; I'll eventually adjust.

But Bush's eight-year white House residency left me a lingering near-addiction for official idiocy.

Those TV nasties the Young Turks serve up in the clip about 10-minutes of Shurb's unbelievable impersonation of a world leader with an IQ of 78.

God bless you, George. Hope the alcohol is still holding out for you there in Crawford, Texas. But, hey, now you got Secret Service to make those 2AM runs for you to the liquor store in Fort Worth.

Glad I could contribute more of my tax dollars to another worthy Bush cause.

Fox Fumes, Fumbles Freewheeling Mayoral Rant for Working Class America

Another onair affair at Fox News with an informed puglist refusing to fit into prefabricated conceptual box favoring the American ruling elite and their wealthy supporters.

Virg Bernero, major of Lansing, Michigan, provides a Fox News pundit "Greg" some basic schooling in American Class Economics 101.

It's so refreshing to hear an interview--albeit, one-sided--situate Wall Street bailout thievery in proper context of US "thirdworldization"--the "race to the bottom.

Greg, buddy, you were so lame at defusing the "class bomb" Major Bernero dropped on your set. Your hopwnder and Aussie "Rupert, Rupert" won't be pleased with your inability to shout down, Hannity-style, a guest unwilling to talk out of the economic and conceptual box you pundits force them them in.

While the Democratic Party once was populated by the likes of Virg Bernero, we now have collosal sell-outs of the Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid variety "looking out" for the rights of working-class America.

"FEAR" and Civil Asset Forfeiture in the United States

"Findings suggest asset forfeiture is a dysfunctional policy. Forfeiture programs, while serving to generate income, prompt drug enforcement to serve functions that are inherently contradictory and often at odds with the demands of justice."--Mitchell Miller & Lance H. Selva, Drug Enforcement's Double Edged Sword: An Assessment of Asset Forfeiture Programs (Twelve month empirical examination of the implementation
of laws from within the forfeiture program)

Here's a wager for you: FOX News Network has never reported on the rampant confiscation of property of Americans never charged with a crime.

In April 2000, Forfeiture Endangers American Rights (FEAR), a California-based educational and public advocacy 501(c)(3) nonprofit, was instrumental in partially rectifying the rampant but legal confiscation of property by championing the nation's first federal legislation to reform civil asset forfeiture abuses by law enforcement officials around the U.S.

According to a 1994 report by PBS drug war correspondent Kyla Dunn on abuses in federal asset forfeiture
According to a report prepared for the Senate Judiciary Committee, at least 90 percent of the property that the federal government seeks to forfeit is pursued through civil asset forfeiture. And although forfeiture is intended as punishment for illegal activity, over 80% of the people whose property is seized under civil law are never even charged with a crime according to one study of over 500 federal cases by the Pittsburgh Press. For this reason, critics say, the system can run roughshod over the rights of innocent property owners--and fail to distinguish them from the guilty.
The Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform Act of 2000 (CAFRA) simply reaffirmed basic constitutional rights we wrongly assumed existed for those innocent of any crime. CAFRA required the federal government
Apparently after passage of CARFA, states, county and city law enforcement agencies have taken the pace of federal agencies by ratcheting up passage of local asset forfeiture laws. The catch? Local law enforcement must rake a percentage from the top to pass along to the feds.

Amtrak Snitches on Americans

To circumvent CARFA's commonsense provisions, the feds also sought our some unusual
recruits to enlist int he "war on drugs." For example, the cash-strapped and underfunded public train system Amtrak have signed up with the DEA for 10% "revenue sharing."

The 24 June 2001 issue of the St. Petersburg Times (FL) reported this story:
Amtrak, the financially struggling national passenger rail system, has found a new way to generate revenue: by snitching.

In return for sharing its passenger manifest with the Drug Enforcement Administration, Amtrak gets a bounty of 10 percent of any seizures made from its trains. DEA agents use the information provided by the railroad to determine which passengers fit a "drug courier profile." Riders unlucky enough to have paid for their tickets with cash or purchased tickets at the last minute are questioned by federal agents who board the train at the Albuquerque, New Mexico stop. If one of these travelers is carrying a substantial amount of cash, DEA agents confiscate it as a drug asset and Amtrak takes 10 percent off the top.

The abuses of civil forfeiture -- in which police agencies profit by confiscating money and property in the name of drug control -- are so widely known even a Republican-controlled Congress felt the need to address some of them, last year passing the Civil Forfeiture Reform Act. But those changes came too late for On Hoang Thach, a Vietnamese immigrant with limited English who had $148,000 taken from him by federal agents as he was traveling from California to his home in Boston. According to his attorney, Penni Adrian of Albuquerque, Thach, 26, was singled out for questioning in February 2000 because he had a minority-sounding name, had paid for his one-way ticket with cash and didn't give a call-back number at the time of the reservation.

During the stop in Albuquerque, Thach was approached in his roomette by federal agents. The DEA says Thach gave an agent permission to search the fanny pack he was carrying. But attorney Adrian said Thach didn't understand what was happening.

After the $149,000 was found in the fanny pack, which Thach claimed was gambling proceeds, the bills were taken outside to a drug-sniffing dog. But the dog did not alert to the presence of drugs. So the agents tried again with a second dog. It finally provided the desired result. (Despite studies that show upward of 96 percent of all money in circulation is contaminated with drug residue, police use drug-dog alerts as a basis to claim the money is part of the drug trade.) Thach was not charged with a crime, but he has had to post a $5,000 bond and hire an attorney to help him get his money back. The federal trial is set for October.

Certainly it is unusual and suspicious for someone to be carrying that kind of cash, but there was no actual evidence of wrongdoing. Thach was carrying legal tender, that is before the agents relieved him of it. And no doubt Amtrak got its piece.

MK-ULTRA, Nazis and "Breaking the Mind and Rebuilding It" Big Topic in Hollywood, Washington, D.C.

On 5 June 2009 from 7PM-10PM, former TV series actress Roseanne Barr will join MK-ULTRA alum Cathy O'Brien and international author Colin A. Ross, M.D. (a consultant on Showtime's cable hit The United States of Tara). They will appear at Hollywood United Methodist Churst for a program to promote more public awareness of the continuing ritualized sexual abuse inflicted on American children by government intelligence services. (Now we're finally talking about real American "national security.")

Milkhouse Mouse's most viewed post remains "D.C. Trouser Treats: Washington's Pedophilia in the National Interest," though the end of the report mysteriously "truncated" one day following some hearty site traffic.

One of the changes, though, that should be noted in that post is my embedded link to Dr. D. Corydon Hammond; it no longer takes you to his faculty contact page at the University of Utah Medical School's Division of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation; he's still listed on the faculty, though, but no phone number or email address now is supplied; inquiries now apparently must go through a general number and messages are relayed instead.

Dr. Hammond is a remarkable person, even though he failed to return my phone calls and emails requesting he speak at an educational event I had sponsored in Salt Lake City on MK-ULTRA--CIA Director Allen Dulles' project to program children as super spies to compete with alleged Soviet "Manchurian candidate" agents--and disassociate disorders induced, among other strategies, ritual sexual abuse.

Though his website faculty profile doesn't mention it, Dr. Hammond is the international expert on this obscure piece of scholarly research and, more importantly, counseling practice that unraveled the mystery.

His chilling "Greenbaum Speech," alternatively titled "Hypnosis in Multiple Personality Disorder: Ritual Abuse," was delivered under threat of death in 1992 to the Fourth Annual Eastern Regional Conference on Abuse and Multiple Personality in Alexandria, Virginia. By 1990, Hammond had stumbled upon, quiet by accident, the CIA's systematic "back door" failsafe programming code used to "lock" control children from deprogramming used for coercing them into sexual acts, assassination and drug trafficking.

Most of the MK-ULTRA documentation was shredded in 1973 (in the wake of the political aftershocks over the CIA's June Watergate burgluary into the Democrat National Committee "McGovern for President" campaign office) though some schoarly books well-document the program, including a 1997 study claiming Lee Harvey Oswald was a graduate of Dulles's superspy program.

Former Nebraska Republican state senator and Vietnam War veteran John DeCamp, who served under William Casey, an OSS stalwart and later CIA Director, wrote the startling book The Franklin Cover-Up linking George Herbert Walker Bush to a pedophile ring run by Omaha's rising GOP pop star Larry King, pimp and inmate. (See "D.C. Trouser Treats...," under "Sexing-up America's Power Elite.")

One highly visible MK-ULTRA alum who lived to tell her incredible story is Cathy O'Brien, who book Trance Formation of America* is the top-selling book even without national ad camapgins.

Another worthy book released on this topic is MK-ULTRA victim Carol Rutz's 2001 A Nation Betrayed. What follows is a 2005 review of the book citing the Nazi connection, plus an interview with Ms. Rutz.
A Nation Betrayed:

Secret Cold War Experiments Performed on Our Children and Other Innocent People

An interview with Carol Rutz

By John W. Whitehead

In 1953, terrified by rumors of Communist “brainwashing” of prisoners of war during the Korean War, then CIA Director Allen Dulles authorized MKULTRA—a program that quickly became notorious for unusual and inhumane testing that the CIA and U.S. military poured millions of dollars into. In fact, while reviewing the “tests” five years later in 1958, one CIA auditor wrote: “Precautions must be taken not only to protect operations from exposure to enemy forces, but also to conceal these activities from the American public. The knowledge the Agency is engaging in unethical and illicit activities would have serious repercussions in political and diplomatic circles.” Most of the documents detailing day-to-day operations within MKULTRA were destroyed by the CIA in 1972. These included limitless LSD experiments on unknowing victims, as well as experiments with sensory deprivation, electro-shock, brain implants, hypnosis and various forms of torture.

Among those involved in MKULTRA workings were former Nazi scientists. Project Paperclip was the codename for the U.S. Intelligence Services and military project that brought hundreds of Nazi scientists specializing in chemical weapons, science, rocketry and medicine from Germany to the U.S. directly after the collapse of the Nazi government during the end of WWII. Without State Department approval, more than 800 ardent Nazi supporters and their families were brought to the United States. I detailed this in a commentary entitled “Project Paperclip: Nazis in America.” These Nazi scientists worked in the fields of medicine, science, mind control and advanced weaponry. However, not one of them actually qualified for work visas since they had all recently served to further Hitler’s Third Reich. Their work on guided and ballistic missile technology later resulted in the founding of NASA.

Despite then-President Harry S. Truman’s orders not to allow scientists who were thought to have “unusually strong” leanings toward Nazi propaganda, many of the incoming German scientists’ files were rewritten and “cleaned-up.” This was mainly to prevent their expert skills from falling into the hands of the Soviet Union. As the men were being siphoned out by government officials—those who would come to the U.S. and those who would not—selected scientists’ (whose files were then creatively edited) paperwork was earmarked with a large paperclip. Hence, the beginning of the notorious “Project Paperclip.” Most of the information still surrounding Project Paperclip remains classified to this day. This includes the whereabouts of Dr. Josef Mengele, the most disturbing of all Nazi medical doctors known for his compulsive attraction to human experimentation.

Directly following the expatriation of Nazi scientists into the U.S.—under the guise of the newly created project MKULTRA, officially defined as “A CIA Program of Research in Behavioral Modification”—Project BLUEBIRD and ARTICHOKE were formed in the early 1950s. These served as the primary codenames for a massive mind-control campaign—a field many Nazi scientists were specialists in long before the onslaught of WWII.

All the subprograms of MKULTRA, including Bluebird and Artichoke, coupled with the expatriation of hundreds of Nazi scientists specializing in mind control experiments, were justified by the CIA as a necessary means to an end—that is, to create dissociative symptoms and disorders, including full multiple personality disorder, for the creation of “Manchurian candidates,” or super-spies to be used on enemies during the Cold War.

In 2001, Carol Rutz published a brief narrative of her life that would shock all those who read it. A Nation Betrayed: The Chilling True Story of Secret Cold War Experiments on Our Children and Other Innocent People is an alarming account of U.S. government experiments performed on innocent children under the guise of preparing the country for a Cold War that would never happen—with many government officials heralding the project as “the end that would justify the means.”

Using electroshock, drugs, hypnosis, trauma and sensory deprivation, thousands of American children such as Carol Rutz allegedly endured unthinkable mental and physical pain at the hands of the CIA conducting mind experiments in order to create a Manchurian Candidate. But as our country began to lift the veil of Cold War paranoia, these same children, according to Rutz, were now growing into adults, and suddenly they began silently suffering flashes of torturous memories that neither they nor those around them understood. Indeed, for these Americans, including Rutz, the damage stemming from the government’s misuse of power during this time period had already been done.

In an effort to expose the truth about these government experiments, Rutz’s A Nation Betrayed—now being adapted into a motion picture screenplay—is footnoted documentation of her personal involvement in mind control experiments beginning when she was four years old. Sold to the government for use by her father and grandfather, Rutz’s account includes her 12-year frightening journey of government testing and training for use in various ways, including everything from sexual acts to assassinations by mentally creating “alters” in her—or multiple personalities. Under American government programs such as Bluebird/Artichoke and MKULTRA, CIA personnel worked alongside former Nazi scientists and doctors who had already proven proficient in breaking the mind and rebuilding it....
