Clinton’s Infamous Legacy

If you listened to Hillary Clinton’s testimony before the House Benghazi Committee last week you may have come away thinking that a calm Hillary, the Committee Dem Party members and the Left oriented Press put to bed that Hillary had done anything wrong. The reality is if you look at Hillary’s assertions and obfuscations then compare them to what the public has gained access as the truth, YOU then know the former Secretary of State and Dem Party POTUS candidate lied through her teeth about Benghazi.

Justin Smith lays it out for you!

Clinton’s Infamous Legacy

In the Wake of Benghazi

By Justin O. Smith

Sent: 10/24/2015 1:45 PM

“Hillary Clinton is a congenital liar.” – Michael Ingmire, Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith’s uncle (October 22nd 2015)

The Benghazi Committee hearing on October 22, 2015 spotlighted former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s continued predilection to prevaricate and obfuscate and obstruct the truth on anything, especially regarding the attacks on the U.S. Consulate at Benghazi. Between Clinton’s lies and Obama’s facilitation of the cover-up and top Democrats’ willingness to place their imprimatur on gross negligence, incompetence and treason, Americans are still far away from receiving the full, unadulterated truth on this horrible and despicable episode of the Obama/Clinton Middle East Doctrine; however, from all the available evidence, Hillary Clinton is damned and unfit for any public office, much less the Office of the President.

Three years after the attacks on our U.S. Consulate and hundreds of FOIA requests later, Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) has only just now (Oct 20th) received approximately 1400 pages of Ambassador Chris Stevens’ emails. These emails verify, among other things, Clinton knew for a fact and within minutes that a terror attack was unfolding, not a “spontaneous protest.” Also bearing witness against Clinton, over 600 emails from Ambassador Stevens requesting added security were ignored and supposedly never reached Clinton’s desk, according to Clinton’s own highly questionable testimony.

A good bit of acrimony arose during the hearing over the pertinence of Clinton’s email communications with Sydney Blumenthal, a longtime friend, employee and paid consultant for the Clinton Foundation, to which Rep. Trey Gowdy answered: “It’s relevant because our Ambassador [Stevens] was asked to read and respond to Sydney Blumenthal’s drivel. And yet, there was not a single response to Ambassador Stevens regarding his multiple requests for added security.”

However, when Huma Abedin emailed Clinton that the Libyan people were in dire need of food, milk, gasoline and diesel fuel, Clinton answered her within four minutes.

In incredibly ill-advised fashion, Clinton followed Blumenthal’s advice on Libya, even though he knew nothing about Libya. She did so for financial gain that Blumenthal suggested would arrive, if she helped retired Lt General Grange, the Osprey Group, a CIA agent and other partners gain entry into the Libyan economy; and, she did so in order to take credit for Blumenthal’s determination that the fall of Gaddafi would serve as a model for removing Middle Eastern dictators, blind to the bulwark that these Baathist dictators, like Sadam Hussein and Bashar Assad, provided secularists, Christians and other religious minorities against the islamofascists.

Even though Blumenthal had been refused a position at the State Department by Obama’s aides, his direct line to Hillary Clinton gave him an inordinate amount of influence that circumvented proper procedures for assessing “intelligence”, and this bled into President Obama’s policy decisions. Not only did Clinton strongly recommend military action in Libya to Obama, she also promoted regime change at NATO and played a key role in holding the entire coalition of Western nations together, according to one close advisor.

Significantly, it is apparent from emails sent to Clinton and three members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on March 18, 2011 at 7:27 EST, that Saif Gaddafi, Muammar’s son, sought a face-to-face meeting or a Skype/teleconference in order to arrive at a peaceful solution. Clinton instructed Lt. Gen. Charles Jacoby, who was directing plans for the coalition and NATO, not to take any calls from Saif; the following day U.S. airstrikes began on Libya.

On March 11, 2011, the ‘Washington Post’ ran an op-ed by Clinton’s “old friend”, retired General Wesley Clark that warned against the Libyan intervention. Four days later, the ‘Ottawa Citizen‘ published [link] the Canadian report submitted to NATO that stated Gaddafi’s removal would create a long-term civil war, but Clinton ignored all warnings.

In the days that followed, Muammar Gaddafi was killed, and rather than a new democratic Libyan state led by “moderates”, a new Islamic hell-hole emerged. AFRICOM issued 4500 pages of intelligence between January 2012 and Sept 11, 2012 that described the increase in terrorist activity. A Defense Intelligence Agency report from August 2012 indicated that weapons from Libya’s military stockpile – rifles, RPGs, 125mm and 155mm howitzer ammo – were moving from the port of Benghazi to Banias and Borj Islam, Syria and into the hands of Salafists, the Muslim Brotherhood and AQI, the main forces behind the insurgency in Syria [Judicial Watch is a corroborating source of documentation].

In the District Court of Arizona on May 5th 2015, experienced CIA officer David Manners offered this sworn statement: “It was then, and remains now, my opinion that the United States did participate, directly or indirectly, in the supply of weapons to the Libyan Transitional National Council.” [Fox Business by Catherine Herridge]

Hillary Clinton’s State Dept. illegally armed the islamofascists of Libya and Syria (Fox News [Link and Link]), as shown in federal court documents from May 5th 2015, by awarding contracts approaching $300 million to defense contractors, like Marc Turi, in March 2011, for the purpose of arming the Libyan Transitional National Council and the Libyan rebels, who were not formally recognized at the time. This same action makes both Clinton and Pres. Obama culpable in the murders of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, since these same weapons were used by these same Libyan “rebels”/ islamofascists approximately eighteen months later: Both Clinton and Obama should be behind bars for treason.

Clinton stated this past Thursday – Oct. 22nd – that “there was no credible, actionable threat described to our compound and our diplomatic group”, which is inaccurate and simply false. On June 10th 2011, Clinton’s deputy chief of staff, Jake Sullivan, emailed information of a “credible threat … against the hotel that our [diplomatic] team is using.” Chris Stevens had also requested more security for this same hotel two months before the Sullivan communique.

Seven previous Congressional investigations have failed to interview a single person who was actually on the ground at Benghazi on September 11, 2012 — no Diplomatic Security Command Center personnel and no CIA agents or paid operatives. So, America has witnessed seven incomplete investigations, hindered by the Obama administration’s slow response to FOIA requests, which Chairman Gowdy hopes to rectify and complete through an additional twenty witnesses’ testimony.

“Ambassador Stevens, Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith, and former SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty served this country with honor. It is important to learn how these four men died … We owe them and ourselves the truth about Benghazi and Libya … There is no statute of limitations on the truth.” – Rep. Trey Gowdy

Questions linger, such as, what was happening in Libya that required a diplomatic presence despite the escalating violence?

Why were our military contractors and our diplomatic team left to defend themselves for approximately nine hours, when the 173rd Airborne Infantry was in Italy, only two hours away by C-130?

Obama and Hillary Clinton created the situation that has turned Libya and Syria into mass graves, claiming four of America’s finest early on. With characters devoid of honor and integrity, these two have left America with a memory of a despicable and treacherous act of terrorism, yet to see any retribution extracted. They leave a legacy of infamy and failure in the wake of Benghazi: A day of reckoning is certainly on its way for both, and Clinton’s reckoning should include prison, not the U.S. Presidency.

Mind Control with Electromagnetic Frequency

Soleilmavis Liu

I discovered Soleilmavis Liu quite a few years ago. If my memory is accurate somehow we connected online while she was in the Philippines. I think she was a missionary. At first I thought she was an American Christian ministering the Gospel of Jesus Christ there. For quite some time I had no idea she had issues with being a victim of Mind Control. Way back in 2012 I posted my connection to Soleilmavis and links to three chapters to the eBook “Twelve Years in the Grave”. Unfortunately those peacepink links to the three chapters no longer work. If get the chance you should purchase Soleilmavis’ eBook. It is quite inexpensive at $5.99 with the full title, “Twelve Years in the Grave: Mind Control with Electromagnetic Spectrums, the Invisible Modern Concentration Camp”.

12 Years in the Grave” is essentially Soleilmavis’ biography pertaining to remote mind control. Now when you read things like “remote mind control” your first thoughts will probably be negative. You might think is she a nut case? A deluded Conspiracy Theorist? A con lady? And such thoughts that I’m sure you can come up with on your own. One thing is certain though. No matter what you believe on the possibility of remote mind control, Soleilmavis legitimately believes this has happened to her. In that sense that makes her a bit of an expert in my opinion. Other than reading the detail in her eBook you can get a decent snapshot of what Soleilmavis Liu is all about at the blog You Read it Here First. That website has posted an interview conducted by Christina Hamlett with Soleilmavis. Soleilmavis offers even more details of her experience at peacepink at the post ‘BOOK “TWELVE YEARS IN THE GRAVE” WWW.LULU.COM/SPOTLIGHT/SOLEILMAVIS’.

The lecture below is essentially what Soleilmavis spoke on in Communist China of all places on January 6, 2015. There were many speakers at this conference on various subjects all of which have PDF files of their lectures. The conference was sponsored by Chinese American Scholars Association (CASA).

Mind Control with Electromagnetic Frequency

By Soleilmavis Liu

January 2015

Sponsor Activist of Peacepink

Original Lecture Location: Yantai, Shandong Province, China


Recent years, the words “mind control abuse and torture” and “target individual” appears frequently online. Thousands of people in groups or individually cries attention to the abuses and tortures with electromagnetic mind control technologies through internet and all other channels. The scale of the ongoing crimes is large, and hidden. People are asking for the worldwide attention and an international investigation of enormous human rights violations that are silently taking place worldwide at this moment.


One of the twenty-first century’s greatest violations of human rights is the proliferation of mind control technologies and their accompanying abuse and torture. Thousands of innocent victims across the globe have become activists for their freedom.

Electromagnetic mind control technologies are weapons which use electromagnetic waves to hijack a person’s brain and nervous system and subvert an individual’s sense of control over their own thinking, behavior, emotions or decision making. This article is a brief introduction to mind control technologies, the grave situation of hidden mind control abuses and tortures, and victims, including Soleilmavis Liu, whose work is to expose mind control technologies and their torturous abuses, and to urge governments worldwide to investigate and halt these egregious violations of human rights.

Keywords: Mind control technology; voice-to-skull; victim, Human Rights; Torture; Abuse


Thousands of people in groups or individually cries attention to the abuses and tortures with electromagnetic mind control technologies through internet and all other channels. The scale of the ongoing crimes is large, and hidden. People are asking for the worldwide attention and an international investigation of enormous human rights violations that are silently taking place worldwide at this moment.

This article will briefly introduce mind control technologies, current data of mind control victims, Soleilmavis’ case summary, and their work to expose mind control abuse and torture. Soleilmavis’ case summary and her work will hopefully bring more public awareness to the secret crimes of mind control abuses and tortures.

Brief introduction of mind control technologies

Mind control technologies are weapons which use electronic microchip implants, nanotechnologies, microwaves and/or electromagnetic waves to subvert an individual’s sense of control over their own thinking, behavior, emotions or decision making by attacking the brain and nervous system. The development of these methods and technologies has a long history.

1. Nazi Wonder Drug

Nazi researchers used concentration camp inmates to test a cocaine-based “wonder drug” they hoped would enhance the performance of German troops. Hamburg-based criminologist Wolf Kemper believed that D-IX pills were Hitler’s last secret development. The so-called Experiment D-IX started in November of the year 1944 in Sachsenhausen concentration camp. The results of all those tests inspired their initiators to supply D-IX drug to the entire Nazi Army. However, they failed to launch the mass production of the substance. The allies’ victories at both fronts in winter and spring of in 1945 resulted in the collapse of the Nazi regime. The absurd dream of the wonder drug was crushed. [1]

According to the “Want to Know” information site, “After the end of World War II, German scientists were held in a variety of detainment camps by the allies. In 1946, President Truman authorized Project Paperclip to exploit German scientists for American research, and to deny these intellectual resources to the Soviet Union.” Some reports bluntly pointed out that they were “ardent Nazis.” They were considered so vital to the “Cold War” effort that they would be brought into the US and Canada. Some of these experts had participated in murderous medical experiments on human subjects at concentration camps. A 1999 report to the Senate and the House said “between 1945 and

1955; 765 scientists, engineers, and technicians were brought to the US under Paperclip and similar programs.” (Bluebird Report)

2. Mk-ultra, America’s Central Intelligence Agency mind control project.

The Central Intelligence Agency’s Fact Book states the NSC (National Security Council) and the CIA were established under the provisions of the National Security Act of 1947. In December 1947, the NSC held its first meeting. James Forrestal, the Secretary of Defense, pushed for the CIA to begin a “secret war” against the Soviets. Forrestal’s initiative led to the execution of psychological warfare operations (psy-ops) in Europe. CIA personnel were not opposed to working with Nazi doctors who had proven to be proficient in breaking the mind and rebuilding it. In some cases, military bases were used to hide these covert activities. It was decided that the communist threat was an issue that took priority over constitutional rights.

One of the areas to be investigated by the CIA was Mind Control. The CIA’s human behavior control program was chiefly motivated by perceived Soviet, Chinese, and North Korean use of mind control techniques. Under the protection of “national security,” many other branches of the government also took part in the study of this area. The CIA originated its first program in 1950 under the name BLUEBIRD, which in 1951, after Canada and Britain had been included, was changed to ARTICHOKE. MKULTRA officially began in 1953. Technically it was closed in 1964, but some of its programs remained active under MKSEARCH well into the seventies. In 1973, tipped off about forthcoming investigations, CIA Director Richard Helms ordered the destruction of any MKULTRA records. (MC 10, 17)

There is an overwhelming body of evidence that confirms the existence of Mk-ultra. More than 250 people who claim they were the victims of “brainwashing” by America’s Central Intelligence Agency were set to win a multimillion dollar legal battle for compensation. Nine already had each received $67,000 (£33,500) compensation from the spy agency, which had admitted to setting up an operation codenamed MK-Ultra during the Cold War. [Mike Parker, CIA’s Bourne Identity Plot (Mkultra),, July 8, 2007] [2]

3. Implantable electronic chip mind control

Many researchers, using nanotechnologies had developed implantable electronic chips that established new nerve connections in parts of the brain that controlled movement or even altered emotion and thought. Researchers at the University of Washington (UW) had been working on an implantable electronic chip that might help establish new nerve connections in the part of the brain that controlled movement. Their study, to be published in the November 2, 2006, edition of Nature, showed such a device could induce brain changes in monkeys lasting more than a week (Leila Gray, Tiny Electronic Chip, Interacting with the Brain, Modifies Pathways for Controlling Movement, University of Washington News, October 24, 2006). [3]

On March 18, 2008, the Central Intelligence Agency responded in writing to a Larson Media Freedom of Information Act request. The document disclosed that the CIA’s use of biomedical intellectual property developed at the Alfred Mann Foundation, Second Sight LLC, Advanced Bionics, and under Naval Space Warfare (SPAWAR) contract #N6600106C8005, was “currently and properly classified pursuant to an executive order in the interest of national security,” and applied to the CIA Director’s “statutory obligation to protect from disclosure, intelligence sources and methods.” The technology, developed under the DARPA programs of Tony Tether, Col. Geoffrey Ling and N.I.H programs of William Heetderks, had been protected as a Defense “Special Access Program1” (SAP), which was the official terminology for a “black project.” The research had resulted in implantable devices that were millimeter and sub-millimeter in size, could be surreptitiously implanted (and had been fabricated in a manner that the devices could not be detected or localized by clinical medical or radiology techniques), and provided a shocking amount of surveillance capability regarding a subject’s activities, which might include visual and auditory biofeedback data.

Additionally, the devices were capable of delivering testosterone or any other biological agent.

4. Voice to Skull Technologies

Artificial microwave voice-to-skull transmission was successfully demonstrated by researcher Dr. Joseph Sharp in 1973, announced at a seminar at the University of Utah in 1974, and in the journal “American Psychologist” in the March 1975 issue, the article was titled “Microwaves and Behavior” by Dr. Don Justesen (1975). [4]

In 2002, the US Air Force Research Laboratory patented precisely such a device: “a nonlethal weapon which includes (1) a neuro-electromagnetic device, which broadcast sound into the skull of persons or animals by way of pulse-modulated microwave radiation; and (2) a silent sound device, which can transmit ultrasound (above human hearing) into the skull of mammals.” NOTE: The sound modulation might be voice or audio subliminal messages. One application of voice-to-skull uses was an electronic scarecrow to frighten birds in the vicinity of airports. [5]

5. Mind reading technologies

A team of world-leading neuroscientists has developed a powerful technique that allowed them to look deep inside a person’s brain, and to read their intentions before they act.

The research broke controversial new ground in scientists’ ability to probe people’s minds and eavesdrop on their thoughts, ethically to be condemned in its technology and applications.

“Using the scanner, we could look around the brain for this information and read out something that from the outside, there is no way you possibly could tell is in there. It is like shining a torch around, looking for writing on a wall,” said John Dylan Haynes at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Germany in 2007, who led the study with colleagues at University College London and Oxford University.

In 2011, neuroscientists at the University of California Berkeley put electrodes inside the skulls of brain surgery patients to monitor information from their temporal lobe, which was involved in the processing of speech and images. As the patient listened to someone speaking, a computer program analysed how the brain processed and reproduced the words they had heard.

The scientists believed the technique could also be used to read and report what they were thinking of saying next.

In the journal Plos Biology, they wrote that it took attempts at mind reading to “a whole new level.”

Harvard’s Buckner won the Alzheimer’s award for reading our minds in 2011. Researchers had shown a capability to read a subject’s mind by remotely measuring their brain activity. This technique could even extract information from individuals, who were unaware of themselves. [6]

Those mind reading technologies use EEC with decoding of neurological signals remotely with or without an implant through satellite or through TV Mobile transmission towers. The following data was from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab, “The sensitivity of our deep-space tracking antennas located around the world is truly amazing. The antennas must capture Voyager information from a signal so weak that the power striking the antenna is only 10 exponent -16 watts (1 part in 10 quadrillion). A modern-day electronic digital watch operates at a power level 20 billion times greater than this feeble level.”

Scientists believed the weak radio emission of a cubic centimeter of brain matter was within the detectable limits of the satellite. It was technically possible for a satellite to detect your thoughts, emotions and perceptions, and pass that information to a computer for interpretation. [7]

6. Patents of Mind Control Technologies

Many patents had indicated the existence of mind control technologies, such as:

USP # 6,729,337 (May 4, 2004), Sony owned a patent “Sony Brain Waves Manipulation By Ultrasound” for an “ultrasound array” that supposedly stimulated your brain waves to simulate sensory experiences causing its users to experience smells, tastes and even touch without external stimuli. USP # 6,488,617 (December 3, 2002), Nervous System Manipulation by EM Fields from Monitors.

7. More evidence to prove the existence of mind control technologies.

There is sufficient evidence to prove the existence of mind control technologies. I will only give a few as example.

Microwave Irradiation of the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, review of its history and studies to determine whether or not related health defects were experienced by employees assigned in the period, 1953-1977,prepared at the request of Howard W. Cannon, chairman, Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, United States Senate, published in 1979 by U.S. Government Printing Office in Washington, disclose that since 1952, the Soviet government began directing microwave beams at the U.S. embassy in Moscow.

A study funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, has perfected the art of using electrical signals to manipulate the color of a squid’s iridescent skin over the entire color spectrum. The Marine Biological Laboratory in Massachusetts carried out the research.[8] If they could manipulate animals, they could manipulate humans too.

A former KGB officer has divulged secrets of special mind control techniques that security services in developed nations used during and after the Cold War, a Russian government daily said in December 2006.

General Boris Ratnikov, who served in the KGB department for Moscow and the Moscow Region, told Rossiiskaya Gazeta that people in power had resorted to various methods of manipulating individuals’ thoughts since ancient times and that it was hardly surprising that secret services adopted the practice when it acquired a scientific foundation in the twentieth century.

In the mid-eighties, about fifty research institutes in the Soviet Union studied remote mind control techniques backed by substantial government funding, but all such research efforts were halted with the demise of the Soviet empire in the early nineties.

Ratnikov, who subsequently served as deputy head and then senior consultant at the Federal Guard Service from 1991 to 1997, said his department was in charge of safeguarding top officials in post-Soviet Russia against any external influence on their sub-conscious.

The general stated emphatically that he and his colleagues had never manipulated the minds of the then president, Boris Yeltsin, or of economic reformer Yegor Gaidar, but claimed to have used mind-reading to save Russia’s first president and the country from a war with China.

Yeltsin had planned to visit Japan in 1992, but Ratnikov’s department detected attempts to “program” the president’s mind, to make him give the Kuril Islands back to Japan. The move would have led to demands from China that it regains its disputed territories from Russia as well, a conflict that could have sparked a war between the two neighbors. Yeltsin, therefore, was forced to cancel the trip.

Another of the general’s revelations is that senior officials in Western Europe and the United States unwittingly provided information to his department, which was able to read their minds thanks to Soviet-era scientific achievements.

In the early nineties, Ratnikov and his colleagues “scanned” the mind of new U.S. Ambassador Robert Strauss to see that the embassy building contained equipment to exert psychotronic influence on Moscow residents but, according to the general, it had been deactivated. [9]

Research into electromagnetic spectrums weapons had been secretly carried out in the US and Russia since the fifties. Plans to introduce the super-weapons were announced quietly in March 2012 by Russian Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov, fulfilling a little-noticed election campaign pledge by president-elect Putin. Mr. Serdyukov said, “The development of weaponry based on new physics principles – Direct Energy weapons, Geophysical weapons, Wave-energy weapons, Genetic weapons, Psychotronic weapons, and so on – is part of the state arms procurement programme for


There was no doubt that, notwithstanding that governments still covered-up the development and research of mind control technologies, the government owned advanced technologies, which could read mankind thoughts remotely and subvert an individual’s sense of control over their own thinking, behavior, emotions or decision making by attacking the brain and nervous system with electromagnetic frequencies.

As early as 1998, scientists had warned that the control and manipulation of a human brain was a terrifying possibility. Lieutenant Colonel Timothy L. Thomas, US Army (ret), published an article in the military journal Parameters which likened the mind to a new battlefield. He quoted a Russian army major in relation to weapons that affected the mind, “It is completely clear that the state, which is first to create such weapons, will achieve incomparable superiority.” Thomas expressed concern about “information dominance,” though he stopped short of the moral implications. (Timothy L. Thomas, The Mind Has No Firewall, Parameters, Spring 1998, pp. 84-92) [11]

Mr. Peter Phillips, Lew Brown and Bridget Thornton raised high concerns of human rights violations implemented with electromagnetic spectrums weapons in the article “US Electromagnetic Weapons and Human Rights.” (Peter Phillips, Lew Brown and Bridget Thornton, US Electromagnetic Weapons and Human Rights, December 2006) [12]

Carole Smith, a British psychoanalyst, in recent years has been openly critical of government use of intrusive technology on non-consenting citizens, in the article “Diagnosis Psychosis in Light of Mind Invasive Technology – On the Need for New Criteria of Diagnosis of Psychosis in the Light of Mind Invasive Technology.”

The European Parliament A4-0005/1999 Paragraph 27 called for a worldwide ban on weapons that might enable “any form” of the “manipulation of human beings.” [13]

USA Representative Dennis Kucinich introduced bill H.R. 2977 (2001), which was referred to the Committee on Science, and in addition to the Committees on Armed Services, and International Relations, for a period to be subsequently determined by the speaker, in each case for consideration of such provisions as fall within the jurisdiction of the committee concerned.

H.R. 2977 (2001) preserved the cooperative, peaceful uses of space for the benefit of all humankind by permanently prohibiting the basing of weapons in space by the United States, and required the President to take action to adopt and implement a world treaty banning space-based weapons.

In this bill, the terms “weapon” and “weapons system” included a device capable of the following: “directing a source of energy, including molecular or atomic energy, subatomic particle beams, electromagnetic radiation, plasma, or extremely low frequency (ELF) or ultralow frequency (ULF) energy radiation, against that object,” “through the use of land-based, sea-based, or space-based systems using radiation, electromagnetic, psychotronic, sonic, laser, or other energies directed at individual persons or targeted populations for the purpose of information war, mood management, or mind control of such persons or populations.”

The United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research (UNIDIR) formally listed a special category of psychotronic (psycho = “mind” &tronic= “electronic”) mind control and other electromagnetic resonance weapons in their 2002 Media Guide to Disarmament. [14]

Reported stories about people who claimed that they were mind control victims

There are many reported stories about people who have claimed that they were tortured and harassed by remote voice-to-skull and electromagnetic mind control technologies. Most of the public including media labeled them as conspiracy theorists, or mentally ill persons. Their stories were regarded as conspiracy work.

In the days and weeks before authorities say he shot three people at the Florida State University library and was then gunned down by Tallahassee police, Myron May posted a video about mind control to Facebook, and earlier an image of a Google business card with the words “Targeted individual.” He also posted a video of former professional wrestler and Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura interviewing a man who claims to have created technology that allows the federal government to control people’s minds.

Jimmy Shao of Sacramento, California, was arrested for calling 911 more than one hundred times in one month in May 2013. Shao said he would not stop until Congress investigates the shadow government who use satellites to control his mind and body.

Jared Loughner, 23, who accused of shooting a US congresswoman in Arizona and killing six others on January 8, 2011, claimed that he was being mind-controlled. Fayette woman Angela Modispaw claimed she heard voices telling her to kill her mother in 2009.

Another suspected victim, Honduras’ fallen leader told The Miami Herald, he was being subjected to mind-altering gas and radiation – and that “Israeli mercenaries” are planning to assassinate him.

Ronald Morgan, 18, a teenage high school dropout who told investigators he was acting on God’s orders confessed to beating his father to death with a baseball bat on May 27, 2001. Morgan said God had told him in a dream to kill his parents. Michael Robert Lawrence, accused of murdering a vacuum cleaner salesman in Waialua, said he was on a “mission” to kill people and chop up their bodies after voices commanded him to do so, a psychiatrist testified on April 3, 2001. T.J.

Richard Scott Baumhammers, 34, was arrested Friday, April 28, 2000, following a shooting rampage that left five dead and one seriously injured in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area. Baumhammers told a psychiatrist that he could hear people talking about him, and it interfered with his work.

Solomon, 15, allegedly opened fire on other students at Heritage High School on August 10, 1999. He heard voices telling him to do strange things, but they were robotic voices, not human voices.

Tami Stainfield is a woman with evidence that proves she and others are victims of predictive analytics robotics and human logistics. She claimed that “we are tortured, hostages, and slaves to a network of technology void from identification and protection.” She had filed as a “no party” candidate in 2012 for the Presidency of the United States.

On February 28, 2011, many mind control victims provided statements to Presidential

Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues on a meeting in Washington, DC.

These were only a very few reported stories from many victims all over the world. The majority of victims’ stories had been ignored by the media and the public.

Current data about mind control victims

Since 2006, many people who claimed to be mind control victims started connecting through the Internet, working together to write countless letters to government departments, social communities, human rights organizations, the media and the general public. Some victims organized some demonstrations in their countries and filed their lawsuits. Some victims organized meetings to meet together to discuss how to fight well. Some victims placed advertisements in major newspapers. Victims also launched worldwide conference calls.

Mind Control abuse and torture is becoming a larger issue worldwide. So far, USA, Europe, and China are the most impacted areas. At least more than 2,000 victims in each of these areas have complained about being attacked by voice-to-skull and electromagnetic mind control technologies. There are also many victims in other countries, including over 200 in Russia, over 100 in India, and over 100 in Japan.

According to an anonymous survey (result on December 19, 2009) for 296 mind control victims all over the world, including 130 females and 166 males, 71.29% of all victims had completed a college degree, with 13.86% of all victims attaining a Master or a Doctor degree. [15]

Soleilmavis’ Case summary of Mind Control abuse and torture

Soleilmavis is a Chinese citizen, born and raised in China, who was first attacked in December, 2001 when she was studying for a Master’s Degree in Australia. At the time she was unfamiliar with remote electromagnetic weapons which can control thinking, behavior, emotions or decision making by attacking the brain and nervous system. Eventually, she would come to learn of these technologies that are being secretly used or covered by governments worldwide to control and harass the populace.

Noticeable effects started with some noises (whispering voices) which she heard from the floor below her or from the neighbors’ houses. The other people who lived in the same house could not hear them. Soon she started to experience a wide variety of symptoms.

Majority of the symptoms were: pain all over the body, stomach pain, toothaches, headaches, involuntary hand tremors, inability to stand firmly on her legs, alternation of cold and hot sensations, excessive perspiration, high fevers, constipation, faece and piss incontinence, sexual harassment, sleep deprivation, dream manipulation, artificial emotions (induced fear, anger, shame, joy, hate, sadness), and manipulation of memory (forgetting/remembering/screen memories). Torturers also can make her say things (forced speech).All those symptoms would disappear without any medical treatment, or sometimes, a pain would persist, even if she had strong medication.

She was like a little trapped marionette being controlled by invisible strings. Some unknown people held the strings and controlled her actions: speaking, walking, eating, sleeping, and even her thoughts and emotions.

On April 5, 2002, she left Australia, and went to Hong Kong, Thailand, Shanghai and New Zealand, but could not escape the harassment and torture. When she was in Hong Kong, her brain was controlled by voice-to-skull and remote electromagnetic mind control technologies, and she was taken into the US Embassy in Hong Kong. It was strange that there were so many Security Guards outside the US Embassy, but nobody stopped her or asked her anything.

During the past years, Soleilmavis worked hard to expose mind control technologies and their torturous abuses, and urge governments worldwide to investigate and halt these egregious violations of human rights. She wrote her book “Twelve Years in the Grave – Mind Control with Electromagnetic Spectrums, the Invisible Modern Concentration Camp” to let the public know details of her story. She and other victims in her network have started a concerted campaign against secret mind control weapons abuse and torture. They are demanding an international investigation into these crimes which constitute immense violations of the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Provided the fact that her brain was remotely controlled by voice-to-skull and electromagnetic mind control technologies, and she was taken into the US Embassy in Hong Kong, she urges the US government to investigate her case. She also requires the cooperation and support of the governments of Australia and China, and requests assistance from the United Nations and other governments in investigating her case. She wishes the public help her to urge governments to take immediate actions.


It can be seen that mind control weapons are well developed and they are being used secretly to torture and harass innocent citizens. Many victims are currently working in conjunction with Soleilmavis to start a worldwide campaign against secret mind control weapons abuse and torture.

In this research, the following conclusions were reached:

1) Many countries have developed various types of mind control methods: drugs, microchips, nanotechnologies and electromagnetic waves. Could these governments also introduce legislation to regulate the use of such weapons?

2) Effective laws and other measures from our governments need to be enacted to prevent the misuse of such weapons.

3) In the event of misuse of such weapons, government intervention is required to protect the victims’ and prosecute torturers to the fullest extent of the law.

It is hoped that this paper will bring about public awareness and solutions to mind control weapons abuse and torture.

INCREDIBLE: Ex-CIA Agent Claims Obama Had Breitbart and Clancy Killed

Dr. Jim Garrow

Dr. Jim Garrow
Here’s a good Conspiracy Theory I wish some corroboration would emerge to confirm. Dr. Jim Garrow (Here’s a good bio but disquieting photo – And HERE) claims he was a covert CIA agent and has knowledge that Obama ordered the stealth assassination of Andrew Breitbart and author Tom Clancy. The Tea Party Crusaders posted a story on this accusation by Dr. Garrow on February 22, 2015 but after doing some checking I discovered the Garrow accusation has been going on since at least 2013. I found the 2013 date on a skeptical Free Republic post. If you look at some of the headline titles from the Dr. Garrow does have the appearance of a way-way-out-there-in-left-field kind of guy. On the other hand Dr. Garrow was the runner-up to President Barack Hussein Obama in the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009. Dr. Garrow’s nomination is related to his book “THE PINK PAGODA: ONE MAN’S QUEST TO END GENDERCIDE IN CHINA” (Book Review – The Canadian). In relation to that book here is a 2011 book interview:
Published by ATLAHWorldwide
Published: Dec 15, 2011
Hon. James David Manning, PhD interviews Dr. Jim Garrow on his new book “The Pink Pagoda.” Recorded on 13 December 2011. Go to for more information.
At any rate Dr. Garrow is vilified by the Left and still is appreciated by Christian leaders and far as Conservatives go, I suspect the appreciation or lack thereof is related to the believability scale on Conspiracy Theory.
Without further ado here is the Tea Party Crusaders article doing what I do enjoy – vilifying the Liar-in-Chief.

INCREDIBLE: Ex-CIA Agent Claims Obama Had Breitbart and Clancy Killed
February 22nd, 2015 at 12:22 AM
 Dr. J. Garrow, A. Breitbart & Tom Clancy
He has been featured on several media outlets throughout the world. Last Sunday, as a guest of Now the End Begins internet radio program however, he dropped a bombshell on the world. Dr. Garrow claims that up to a week ago he was covert CIA. To top it off on the program, he states he knows that President Obama ordered the hits that killed Tom Clancy and Andrew Breitbart!
According to Garrow …
Andrew Breitbart died under mysterious circumstances. The autopsy said that he died with no prescription drugs in his system and only a .04 blood alcohol content not days after taping an interview with the now also deceased “alleged” gay lover of President Barack H. Obama. So why if he died of natural causes did the FBI go after his widow for potential homicide?
Well according to Dr. Jim Garrow, Andrew Breitbart was not dead of natural causes. According to the interview, he was killed directly by the Obama Administration. Andrew Breitbart was known for his controversy against the administration and the news media. Several people believed he was killed including some of the main founders of in his memory.
Then there was Tom Clancy. Tom Clancy died last week at the age of 66. Although they say “natural causes”, the actual list of cause of death on his autopsy, cause of death unknown.
Tom Clancy once said:
I hang my hat on getting as many things right as I can. I’ve made up stuff that’s turned out to be real — that’s the spooky part.”-Tom Clancy to the New York Times

It is no secret when he wrote The Hunt for the Red October that he was met at the door by Pentagon officials and FBI agents demanding to know where he got top-secret documents.
Dr. Garrow states that after the incident, the CIA “spoon fed” him classified information and scenarios to write his novels in a manner that was entertaining but contained that ever needed element of truth. Dr. Garrow says that is why he was killed because he was getting to close to a secret they don’t want the world to know. In fact Dr. Garrow attributes the statement quoted above as “a little too late”.
Dr. Garrow states President Obama had Tom Clancy killed as well and noted that it takes 5 days for plant toxins and most poisons to break down and leave no traces in the human body. Amazingly enough, or coincidentally, the doctors did not perform an autopsy on Tom Clancy’s body for 5 days.
Finally he revealed a revelation so shocking to the radio program that can be best described in their own words:
Lastly, he revealed that Obama’s administration was made up of Marxist Muslims who all take their orders from Senior Adviser to the President, Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett.
Dr. Garrow said that it is well known to intelligence agencies all over the world that Obama is a foreign plant who was placed on the path to the presidency by ultra-rich Saudi nationals. This is why, Garrow said, that all of Obama’s education records have been permanently sealed.

No Tears For Terrorists

Party of Deceit, Spin & Lies


The Senate Intelligence Committee recently produced an extremely flawed report that vilified the CIA for Enhanced Interrogation Techniques (EIT) as torture. American voters must keep in mind ONLY the lame duck Dem majority placed its stamp of approval on this report. The Dems have spent the last 14 years LYING to America (Bush election 2000 – Obama years to the present in 2014). Lying is how Obama was elected in both 2008 and 2012. Obama’s deceptions he has told are scandalous and worse America’s Mainstream Media (NBC News, CBS News, NY Times, Media Matters etc.) have been perpetuating those lies (, WSJ, National Review, David Horowitz Freedom Center, Eagle Rising, etc.).


I have listening to Leftists touting this Senate Dem report on EIT as confirmation that prosecutions for crimes should occur. The thing is it’s like I’ve been telling my grandkids: “If a Democrats lips are moving, it is a lie.”


Justin Smith provides some facts that refute lying Democrats.

No Tears For Terrorists


By Justin O. Smith

Sent: 12/13/2014 4:54 PM


The recently released Senate Intelligence report on the CIA detention and interrogation program, created after 9/11, is a poorly done partisan attack on the Agency, and it is marred by errors of fact and questionable motives, as Americans note that this story moved Dr. Gruber, ACA architect, and his “Americans are too stupid to understand Obamacare” remark from the front page of the New York Times to page twenty; however, since the Democrats have mischaracterized the effectiveness of the CIA’s detention and interrogation program and alleged that Islamic terrorists/”enemy combatants” captured on foreign battlefields were “tortured” through waterboarding and Enhanced Interrogation Techniques (EIT), let’s put this topic to rest, as we also note that waterboarding was prohibited seven years ago.


Many progressive Democrats have conflated the issue by stating that Japanese soldiers were hung in 1947 for “waterboarding” U.S. soldiers, when what they actually did is more accurately described as “water-torture”, forcing water into the stomachs of prisoners, our U.S. soldiers, until osmosis ruptured their blood-cells, ending in death. This is not in any manner similar to the minor dunkings that Al Qaeda and Taliban terrorists received at the hands of CIA interrogators, which merely gave the subject the illusion of drowning.


At the cost of $40 million, the Senate intelligence report, a 524 page declassified executive summary of the 6300 page classified report, accuses the CIA of torture, however, the CIA repeatedly consulted the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel about methods it intended to use. Legal opinions – later discredited and withdrawn due to political pressure from the Obama administration – assured the Agency that ALL of its Enhanced Interrogation Techniques (EIT) were lawful and did not constitute torture.


It is worth noting here that tens of thousands of U.S. Armed Forces members, Rangers, Special Forces, SEALs, Pathfinders and Recon have voluntarily subjected themselves to waterboarding in the Survival, Evasion, Resistance and Escape (SERE) classes. All intelligence and military personnel exposed to a high risk of capture take SERE training.


Now, the very same Democrats, who once fully supported the EIT program, clearly didn’t include any information that did not fit their predetermined conclusions, and these same Democrats charged the CIA with immoral ineffectiveness, after they cherry-picked their way through six million pages of documents in the program that they in fact enabled; in their questionable endeavor, they ignored credible evidence that information gathered in this program led to Osama bin Laden.


In a joint response, former CIA Directors George Tenet, Porter Goss and Michael Hayden and former CIA Deputy Directors John McLaughlin, Albert Calland and Stephen Kappes rebut the Senate Intelligence report in a December 10th Wall Street Journal editorial that states:


“The (EIT) program in its totality formed an essential part of the foundation from which the CIA and the U.S. military mounted the bin Laden operation. For instance, the CIA never would have focused on the individual who turned out to be bin Laden’s personal courier without the detention and interrogation program.”


Senator Saxby Chambliss, the ranking Republican on the Intelligence Committee, and five other Republicans wrote a 100 page dissent of the report, which was written solely by Democratic committee staff members. Chambliss, in a later statement, contradicted the principal findings of the Democrats, calling them “erroneous and inflammatory.”


Senator Chambliss also presented 766 known cases that represented “sole sourced” intelligence extracted through EIT, which gave advanced warning of terrorist attacks on Heathrow airport and London’s Canary Wharf. Chambliss stated, “There is no telling how many lives this program saved.”


Jose Rodriguez Jr., a former CIA official, rejects the Senate Intelligence report’s conclusions that EITs weren’t useful in saving American lives, and he stated: “… that the interrogation program brought no intelligence is an egregious falsehood; it’s a dishonest attempt to rewrite history … I’m bemused that the Senate could devote so many resources to studying the interrogation program and yet never once speak to any of the key people involved in it, including the guy who ran it, that would be me.”


One report from the twelve month period in 2004 showed a 92% success rate when EITs were used at GITMO, and even the Senate Intelligence report had to admit that some intelligence was gathered from 82% of detainees subjected to EITs, while in CIA custody. The effectiveness was shown to be only 57.5% with detainees when soft-sell techniques (polygraphs) were used.


As a career U.S. military senior interrogator with extensive knowledge of the EITs used by the CIA interrogators on high value detainees, Jason Beale (pseudonym) anticipated the Senate Intelligence report and wrote a 39 page response stating that “under duress the unrehearsed details (of a lie) are the wild-cards that bite you in the ass … I would rather sit across from the most talented interrogator on earth doing a soft-sell than any interrogator doing a hard-sell … the only consequences to my lies come in the form of words. I could handle words. Anyone could.” [Bold Italics Blog Editor’s]


Since the creation of the detention and interrogation program, the CIA has reported any allegation of abuse to the Justice Dept. Twenty cases have been forwarded to Justice in all these years, with only one meriting prosecution.


If detainees were subjected to “rough takedowns”, stripped, bound, screamed at and slapped, as alleged in this Senate Intelligence report, and hasty decisions made in the chaotic aftermath of 9/11, those CIA agents involved should have been interviewed by the Senate Intelligence Committee to ascertain the reasoning and logic behind their actions. This should have been placed in proper context. [Bold text Editor’s – NO CIA agents involved in IET were interviewed by the Senate Intelligence Committee pertaining to this report.]


On December 11th, CIA Director John Brennan put this topic in its proper context as he stated:


“The events of 9/11 will be forever seared into the memory of Americans … those 77 minutes in the immediate aftermath of 9/11, Our Nation ached … It prayed. In Our pain, We pledged to come together … We vowed, NEVER AGAIN.”


Americans are now being forced by this report to reflect and ask themselves, “Was America wrong to use these Enhanced Interrogation Techniques?”


Would anyone really and truly be troubled over waterboarding an enemy combatant, a terror suspect, with the knowledge that thousands of American lives might be at stake?


The Taliban, Al Qaeda and the Islamofascist groups that now comprise the Islamic State have routinely tortured, maimed and murdered their prisoners over the last several decades, just as America witnessed nineteen U.S. soldiers dismembered in Somalia and hung from utility poles in 1993 and, more recently, four young Christian children beheaded in Iraq for refusing to convert to Islam. And during this time, they have consistently and routinely worked towards successfully striking America in the most destructive and lethal fashion; the bomb plots, the biological and chemical attack plans and their search for nuclear weapons have all increased, and all of this was in the making long before the EIT program, as illustrated by the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.


Americans reflect on what has brought us to this discussion, and we remember – We remember Islamic terrorists followed the Koran’s mandate to murder non-believers, the infidels, in order to purify the world – taking the lives of 3000 innocent Americans. This is their life’s calling, and America reacted by making it our mission to capture or kill every Islamofascist meaning to bring Her harm, a mission we took seriously; if an Islamic terror suspect or known terrorist gets slapped a few times or has a little water poured over his face, I’ll not be shedding any tears.

Don’t be Fooled, There is a Nefarious Benghazi Cover-up

Benghazi Cover-up 2

John R. Houk

© June 25, 2014


Today I received a Breitbart News email which is really a promo from Judicial Watch.


Judicial Watch is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Contributions are received from individuals, foundations, and corporations and are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.” (From Donation Page of Judicial Watch)


Thus Judicial Watch is an NGO government and judiciary watchdog organization. JW managed to get a Judge to force the release of documents in which Congress originally subpoenaed but the government failed to deliver. Although Leftists are playing ostriches with their heads in the sand or are just downright deceptive are still claiming there is nothing up their sleeves and are spinning the JW smoking gun data collected.


I call this a promo email because the hook is to read is the offer of JW’s Benghazi Cover Up Report for free. After you click the link in the email it takes you to a page in which you provide your name, address, email and zip code followed by a link to get the report. The report is a 20 odd pages of a pdf file and you are actually sent to the link: The Benghazi Attack of September 11, 2012: Analysis & Further Questions from a Diplomatic Security Service Regional Security Officer and Special Agent; Intro by Tom Fitton – 1/22/13; and an April 29, 2014 update pertaining to the FOIA documents the government was forced to give up by a Judge. So some of you may have read the 2013 portion of the pdf file.


Of course the promo part is the collecting of addresses and email undoubted for marketing and donor purposes in the future. I like JW so I don’t have a problem with that. I can always hit the delete button or file snail mail in the trash.


BUT you really should familiarize yourself with those report. I don’t know about you but I am getting weary of listening, reading and watching Leftists whine about two years of Congressional investigations and zero discoveries of crimes being discovered. The JW report CLEARLY demonstrates the entire Obama Administration is hell bent on covering up probable crimes by not being transparent in releasing documents and the obvious production of government officials lying to Congressional Committees. I am certain the Benghazigate revelations are a mere tip of the iceberg. Since obstruction is now being documented in Benghazi investigations you can count on the probability the other Obama labeled phony scandals have nefarious activities behind them.


So you can click the Judicial Watch link that is a promo to build their donor list (which is a worthy cause) or I provided the pdf link above. In the mean time I took the liberty to provide an incomplete excerpt of the pdf file of portions I find to be obscene obstructions by the Obama Administration. SO REALLY READ THE WHOLE REPORT.

Introduction by Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton


Judicial Watch promotes transparency, integrity and accountability in government, politics and the law. We carry out or mission through investigations, research, litigation and public education.  From time to time we produce Special Reports on important public policy matters to illuminate the operations of government in a way that informs the public and holds our trusted public servants accountable.


We have prepared this Special Report with the analysis, insights and expertise of Mr. Raymond Fournier, a recently retired Diplomatic Security Service Special Agent with more than thirty years of extraordinary experience managing all aspects of security, to include being a Regional Security Officer in United States Embassies in such countries as: Honduras, Sierra Leone, Belgium, and Lebanon — as well as other sensitive overseas postings to include Afghanistan and Israel. Specifically, Mr. Fournier possesses expertise in: assessing and managing risk; developing and executing security budgets and plans; organizing dignitary protection details; as well as technical, procedural security development and implementation to augment physical security.  Mr. Fournier’s assistance has been invaluable.


Judicial Watch has opened its own investigation of the Benghazi attack. Our staff of investigators and researchers includes former intelligence officers, analysts, military officers, attorneys, and journalists. Judicial Watch has more than ten (10) Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests pending with various Executive departments and agencies seeking all manner of records relating to the attack. We have filed separate lawsuits in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia to compel the Obama administration to comply with the FOIA law and release the records we seek. In the interim, we pursue additional avenues of investigation in an effort to provide the American people with complete, accurate, factual information concerning a deadly attack costing the lives of United States Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three additional brave Americans.


Thomas Fitton



Washington, DC

January 22, 2013





At 9:40 p.m. on the evening of September 11, 20l2, a group of approximately l50 heavily armed Islamist militia members attacked the United States’ diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya. The ensuing 8-hour assault on the Special Mission Compound (SMC, and hereafter: “Compound”) and the nearby CIA annex claimed the lives of four Americans: Ambassador Christopher Stevens, U.S. Foreign Service Specialist Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALS Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.  Stevens, who had previously served as the U.S. Special Envoy to the Libyan Transitional National Council, was the first Ambassador killed in the line of duty since the l979 shooting of Ambassador Adolph Dubs in Kabul, Afghanistan.


In the aftermath of the attack, President Obama and senior administration officials were quick to identify Muslim outrage over an obscure Internet video mocking Mohammed as the motivation for the attack1.  In a September l2th statement about the incident, the President remarked, “Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths. We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others.”2


At a September l4, 20l2 event honoring the four victims, Secretary of State Hilary Clinton stated, “We’ve seen the heavy assault on our post in Benghazi that took the lives of those brave men. We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful Internet video that we had nothing to do with.”3


Those in Libya did not share this theory. During a September l5th television interview, Libyan President Mohamed al-Magarief observed that, “It’s clear from the timing on September 11th and from the detailed planning of the attacks that behind it there were experienced masterminds. It was not a spontaneous act in protest of a movie. This has been prepared for a long time on this specific day…If you take into account the weapons used, like RPGs and other heavy weapons, it proves that it was preplanned. It’s a dirty act of revenge, and it has nothing to do with religion.”4


Nevertheless, top administration officials continued to claim that the attack was spontaneous and the result of the video. During a September l6th television interview, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice infamously assessed the situation as follows:


“There was a hateful video that was disseminated on the Internet. It had nothing to do with the United States government and it’s one that we find disgusting and reprehensible. It’s been offensive to many, many people around the world. That sparked violence in various parts of the world, including violence directed against western facilities including our embassies and consulates. That violence is absolutely unacceptable, it’s not a response that one can ever condone when it comes to such     a video. And we have been working very closely and, indeed, effectively with the governments in the region and around the world to secure our personnel, secure our embassy, condemn the violent response to this video.”5



Eventually, the administration was forced to acknowledge what many observers knew from the beginning — that the attack in Benghazi was neither spontaneous nor the result of an Internet video. On September 28th, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence reported that their revised assessment had determined it to be, “a deliberate and organized terrorist attack carried out by extremists” and that, “some of those involved were linked to groups affiliated with, or sympathetic to al-Qa’ida.”8



ARB Report/Summary of Findings


As required by the Omnibus Diplomatic and Antiterrorism Act of l986, the State Department convened an Accountability Review Board (ARB, and hereafter “Board”) to investigate the attack on October l, 20l2.9 Secretary Clinton chose former Ambassador Thomas Pickering to chair the board. Pickering is also a member of the advisory board of the National Iranian American Council (NIAC)10, a left-wing advocacy group that opposes the imposition of economic sanctions against Iran and that, in the estimation of national security expert Kenneth Timmerman, “has been lobbying Congress to win support for an agenda that mirrors the goals of the Tehran regime.”11   In 2009, former FBI counterterrorism agent Kenneth Piernick reported that the group, “may be lobbying on behalf of Iranian government interests. Were I running the counterintelligence program at the bureau now, I would have cause to look into this further.”12


In her 2009 paper Rise of the Iran Lobby, published by the Center for Security Policy, former CIA officer Clare Lopez wrote that, “Ambassador Pickering’s positions on Iran include calls for bilateral talks without preconditions and a plan for a multinational uranium enrichment consortium in Iran. Iran has proposed a similar plan to the UN Security Council. Ambassador Pickering advocates a process leading to mutual diplomatic relations between Iran and the United States. …


The other members of the Board were former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Michael Mullen, former United Nations Undersecretary for Management Catherine Bertini, former State Department Interim Director of Overseas Building Operations Richard Shinnick, and former Deputy CIA Director Hugh Turner.  Despite State Department regulations requiring that Board members, “must possess expertise that will contribute to the work of the Board, e.g., knowledge, experience or training in areas such as foreign affairs, law, security, embassy construction, intelligence, and other areas appropriate to the Board’s work,”14 no security professionals were selected to the board convened to investigate the Benghazi attack.



Notably, the report contradicts the earlier claims by administration officials that the attacks resulted from a protest that escalated into violence. The Board, “concluded that there was no protest prior to the attacks, which were unanticipated in their scale and intensity.”



… Shortly after its release, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Rep. Darrel Issa told reporters that he was, “deeply concerned that the unclassified report omits important information the public has a right to know. This includes details about the perpetrators of the attack in Libya as well as the less-than-noble reasons contributing to State Department decisions to deny security resources. Relevant details that would not harm national security have been withheld and the classified report suffers from an enormous over-classification problem.”16



Despite the self-evident fact that the security resources dedicated to the Compound in Benghazi were insufficient, State Department officials continued to defend their staffing decisions in the aftermath of the attack.  Under questioning by Rep. Darrell Issa during a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing investigating the attack, State Department Deputy Assistant Secretary for International Programs Charlene Lamb asserted, “We had the correct number of assets in Benghazi at the time of 9/11.”21   According to published reports, the Regional Security Officer in Libya, Eric Nordstrom, told Congressional investigators that Lamb, “wanted to keep the number of U.S. security personnel in Benghazi ‘artificially low.’”22





The day after the release of the Board’s report, numerous media outlets reported that four State Department officials responsible for the management and security of the Compound in Benghazi had resigned. Three were identified as Assistant Secretary of State Eric Boswell, Charlene Lamb, and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Raymond Maxwell.23  In the weeks that followed, however, it became unclear whether the officials had really resigned or even faced any significant disciplinary measures. On December 26th, the New York Post reported that, “The highest-ranking official caught up in the scandal, Assistant Secretary of State Eric Boswell, has not ‘resigned’ from government service, as officials said last week. He is just switching desks. And the other three are simply on administrative leave and are expected back.”24




Additional questions Raised




… It is also known that the Ambassador met with the Turkish Consul General Ali Sait Akin on the evening of the attack. The purpose of that meeting has not been disclosed.  In October, Fox News reported that Stevens, “was in Benghazi to negotiate a weapons transfer, an effort to get SA-7 missiles out of the hands of Libya-based extremists.”31


Some experts believe that the Ambassador’s work in Benghazi may have been related to Administration efforts to transfer arms to Syrian opposition groups. As former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State and President of the Center for Security Policy Frank Gaffney wrote, “One of the places in Libya most awash with weapons in the most dangerous of hands is Benghazi. It now appears that Stevens was there — on a particularly risky day, with no security to speak of and despite now copiously documented concerns about his own safety and that of his subordinates — for another priority mission: sending arms recovered from the former regime’s stocks to the “opposition” in Syria.”32   Former CIA Officer Clare Lopez has characterized U.S. activities in Benghazi as “gun running” and reported that Administration officials were, “working with the very same al-Qaeda linked relationships in Libya to gather up and buy back and collect weapons from Gaddafi’s stockpile that were missing from the revolution in Libya last year and what it looks like is that they were shipping them onwards to Syria.”33


Further substantiating the theory that the Obama administration was involved in arms transfers to Syrian groups is a Times of London report published on September 14, 2012, “Syrian Rebels Squabble Over Weapons as Biggest Shipload Arrives from Libya.”34 According to the report: “Among more than 400 tonnes of cargo the vessel was carrying were SAM-7 surface-to-air anti-aircraft missiles and rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs), which Syrian sources said could be a game-changer for the rebels.” The connection to Benghazi was established by The Times through an examination of the ship’s port authority papers, The Times was shown the Libyan ship, The Intisaar or The Victory, in the Turkish port of Iskenderun and papers stamped by the port authority by the ship’s captain, Omar Mousaeeb, a Libyan from Benghazi and the head of an organisation called the Libyan National Council for Relief and Support, which is supporting the Syrian uprising.”



… (AFRICOM) deployed two unmanned aerial vehicles to survey the events in Benghazi — one to the Compound and the other to the airport during the evacuation of American personnel.  However, the report gives no description of the images captured by the UAVs. In addition, the involvement of AFRICOM in the response raises the important question of why lethal air support or other military assets were not deployed in response to the attack.








Latest Update: Judicial Watch: Benghazi Documents Point to White House on Misleading Talking Points


APRIL 29, 2014


(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that on April 18, 2014, it obtained 41 new Benghazi-related State Department documents. They include a newly declassified email showing then-White House Deputy Strategic Communications Adviser Ben Rhodes and other Obama administration public relations officials attempting to orchestrate a campaign to “reinforce” President Obama and to portray the Benghazi consulate terrorist attack as being “rooted in an Internet video, and not a failure of policy.” Other documents show that State Department officials initially described the incident as an “attack” and a possible kidnap attempt.



Among the top administration PR personnel who received the Rhodes memo were White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, Deputy Press Secretary Joshua Earnest, then-White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer, then-White House Deputy Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri, then-National Security Council Director of Communications Erin Pelton, Special Assistant to the Press Secretary Howli



The documents Judicial Watch obtained also include a September 12, 2012, email from former Deputy Spokesman at U.S. Mission to the United Nations Payton Knopf to Susan Rice, noting that at a press briefing earlier that day, State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland explicitly stated that the attack on the consulate had been well planned. The email sent by Knopf to Rice at 5:42 pm said:



In the days following the Knopf email, Rice appeared on ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox News and CNN still claiming the assaults occurred “spontaneously” in response to the “hateful video.” On Sunday, September 16 Rice told CBS’s “Face the Nation:”



The Judicial Watch documents confirm that CIA talking points, that were prepared for Congress and may have been used by Rice on “Face the Nation” and four additional Sunday talk shows on September 16, had been heavily edited by then-CIA deputy director Mike Morell. According to one email:


The first draft apparently seemed unsuitable….because they seemed to encourage the reader to infer incorrectly that the CIA had warned about a specific attack on our embassy. On the SVTS, Morell noted that these points were not good and he had taken a heavy hand to editing them. He noted that he would be happy to work with [then deputy chief of staff to Hillary Clinton]] Jake Sullivan and Rhodes to develop appropriate talking points.



“Now we know the Obama White House’s chief concern about the Benghazi attack was making sure that President Obama looked good,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “And these documents undermine the Obama administration’s narrative that it thought the Benghazi attack had something to do with protests or an Internet video. Given the explosive material in these documents, it is no surprise that we had to go to federal court to pry them loose from the Obama State Department.”

Will Hamilton Berger Ever Learn? I Hope Not!

William Talman - Raymond Burr

Hamilton Burger and Perry Mason


I’d the chances of a good chunk of readers that remember the old Perry Mason show of the 1950s and early 60s are few. More of you may remember the Perry Mason movies of the 1980s and early 90s that ended roughly with the death of the Perry Mason star Raymond Burr. The one recurring theme of Perry Mason was that he always won the real justice for his accused client and that the Prosecutor always lost in a good way. It was good because the accused was always innocent. In the 50s and 60s that Prosecutor was Hamilton Burger played by William Talman. Burger always lost but that was the real justice. Even so after years of losing I was one that felt sorry for old Hamilton. One almost felt bad when he lost – again and again. But predictability is what made Perry Mason good – right always prevailed and real justice occurred.


Norma Zager uses the Perry Mason paradigm in an illustration of Leftist injustice wishing real justice would prevail.

Will Hamilton Berger Ever Learn?  I Hope Not!


By Norma Zager

Sent: 6/23/2014 11:35 AM


“Animals are reliable, many full of love, true in their affections, predictable in their actions, grateful and loyal. Difficult standards for people to live up to.” Alfred A. Montapert


How can a society that disdains lawyers and creates lawyer jokes have been so enamored of Perry Mason?


Now an icon, Raymond Burr’s character was an instant legend with television watchers. Even the reruns are popular and continue today.  So what was it about Erle Stanley Gardner’s character that made loyal fans tune in week after week to see Hamilton Berger humiliated and embarrassed?


That’s just it. Hamilton was.


There is something in human nature that craves a certain amount of predictability. Even those who claim to exist in a world without conformity remain safe in the knowledge a certain degree of predictability is out there.


In today’s world when humankind must face yet another frightening revelation threatening our very existence, it is more important than ever to embrace a “safe place.”


That “place” is different for everyone. Some seek solace in sports. Others, and I know so many of these, shop until they drop in a designer-induced coma. There are cocktails, chocolates and travel to far away spots. Hobbies and books, including comics with superheroes we can depend on to beat the bad guys, that distract us from the horrible news emanating from the television and newspapers.


When we stop and think about all the ways we are threatened each day, and the future threats that await us as the insane and evil players of the world grow stronger and more adept as killers, we feel a bit off balance. We need to know that we are protected and out of harm’s way.


Americans have been quite spoiled in this regard. Two world wars were fought on distant shores. Our homeland with the exception of Pearl Harbor remained relatively untouched.


That all changed on 9/11 when the U.S. was attacked not simply on our own turf, but in a city that holds a special place in everyone’s heart. Broadway, Seventh Avenue, Lady Liberty, it all seemed more egregious and personal somehow. And the enemy was well aware.


What we didn’t know was that although Ugly Americans was a phrase with which we had become familiar over the years, we always believed we were safe being one. Safe in the knowledge, that aside from the snide comments of French waiters, we could roam the world in as peaceful a manner as a citizen of the ancient Roman Empire.


We never imagined our CIA, FBI and our government could let us down so completely.


They had done so before, but somehow we just didn’t pay enough attention. In 1963 an FBI agent had Oswald in his sights and dismissed him. Had that FBI agent been on the ball, America would be a different place today. This is only one incident of which we are actually aware.


Yet, no one ever talks about that failure or the part fate may have played in John Kennedy’s destiny. So one should not blame, I suppose.


I am not in any way dismissing the good work agencies do every day heading off our enemies. They are human and will make mistakes like 9/11, but I am however no longer able to live with a certainty of safety.


That no one can hurt us or that Jack Nicolson is on “that wall.”


Americans seem to be faced with a new lesson to learn, one that the English and Europeans have known for centuries, a tea party isn’t simply a tea party. When Lewis Carroll wrote about the Mad Hatter, perhaps he alluded to all of us. It’s a valuable lesson we have come too late, but after all we are a young country. Life must be lived every minute for war is always eminent.


Israel lives with the knowledge some crazy may enter a pizza restaurant and blow themselves up. Americans saw those violent pictures and we shook our heads and wondered, how do they live like that? We watch as three young Israelis are kidnapped at a bus stop on their way home for the weekend and remain missing.


Sadly, we as well are now living in that same pond of treachery and evil.


Veterans dismissed and dying to ensure profitable employee bonuses, the dog ate my homework excuses for missing emails that may indict politicians who crossed the line. Terrorists returned while an American marine sits in a Mexican jail, while they laugh at us while cashing our checks. Sadly, the list goes on and on.


Our borders are wide open for that one crazy to walk through undetected with the weapon we have feared most.


Our government chooses political correctness over the safety of our children.


It is so interesting to me that they our government is so worried about prisoners’ civil rights, yet they find the stomach to spy on Americans and usurp our civil rights with no problem at all.


In the end we must face the reality that we are now vulnerable and our government and those who are elected to protect us are not in any way up to the job. Even those who stand watch consistently have their hands tied in the name of politics.


We watch with no recourse, no ability to even slow the madness let alone stop it altogether. So where can we find the extra measure of predictability required to live our lives, find joy and sleep nights?


I am honestly not quite sure, but I know everyone must seek out his or her own way of coping with the insanity of this new world.


Oh yes, I am aware there is nothing new about having to coexist with evil, but somehow it just seems evil is doing much better for itself these days.


Well, it’s time for me to turn on Perry and watch poor Hamilton Berger lose yet another case. You’d think the man would learn, but no, he is the coyote chasing the roadrunner and expecting to catch him just once.


Good luck with that, Hamilton, and thank you, Perry Mason for giving me something constant and predictable on this all-too-insane and out-of-control planet.


Whatever you may need to ensure predictability in your life, I hope you find it soon. Cause the crazies aren’t going anywhere and the United States government has openly invited them to the tea party.  Perhaps we should elect the Mad Hatter president. At least he clearly displayed who he was in full view on his hat.

Excerpts on Barbara Boxer Story Accusing GOP for Benghazi

Barbara Boxer

Okay, I know I am bit behind the curve on this one. It often takes me awhile to sift through all my G+ and Facebook notifications in a timely manner. I just read a comment made on G+ pertaining to the post “Benghazigate Matters!” I made that post on May 10 and commenter Eric Garrett posted his excerpted comment on May 11. Here we are now on May 29.


Eric points to a link to “Barbara Boxer’s claim that GOP budgets hampered Benghazi security” which is currently dated May 16. I can’t explain the link disparity except to guess. Perhaps Eric read this link and it was updated to May 16 or G+ software messed up on dating Eric’s comment. OR I am having difficulty with the G+ comment system and the thoughts are really JR Smith’s. Whatever happened, Eric’s thoughts are quite informative.

Excerpts on Barbara Boxer Story Accusing GOP for Benghazi


By Eric Garrett (or maybe JR Smith)

May 11, 2014 2:16 AM



Erik Garrett

+JR Smith  Per the WP


[EXCERPT]: “Moreover, while Boxer claims that Republicans “cut” the budget, she is only comparing it to what the Obama administration proposed. The reality is that funding for embassy security has increased significantly in recent years.

“The Department of State’s base requests for security funding have increased by 38 percent since Fiscal Year (FY) 2007, and base budget appropriations have increased by 27 percent in the same time period,” said the bipartisan Senate Homeland Security Committee report on the Benghazi attack.

The report added that baseline funding requests have not been fully funded since fiscal year 2010, but noted that Congress had been responsive in providing “Overseas Contingency Operations” funds to the State Department in response to emergent security-driven requests, mainly for Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan.

“However, there was no supplemental or OCO request made by the President for additional diplomatic security enhancements in FY 2010 or FY 2011,” the report pointedly noted. “Neither the Department of State nor Congress made a point of providing additional funds in a supplemental request for Libya, or more specifically, Benghazi.”

Meanwhile, while the Accountability Review Board investigation into the attack lamented the failure of Congress to provide necessary resources — and called for “a more serious and sustained commitment from Congress to support State Department needs” — it fixed the blame for the lack of security squarely on State Department officials.

One huge problem was that the facility was deemed temporary — as we have noted, most of the officials there were working for the CIA, not State — and thus it could not be funded with standard overseas building funds. (Despite persistent news media reports, this was not a “consulate”—far from it.) After the fact, the ARB report recommended allowing for greater flexibility in use of such funds and requiring minimum security standards for such temporary facilities.

(A side note: Given that the U.S. effort in Benghazi was basically a CIA operation, State Department funding issues may be largely irrelevant. Unfortunately, we don’t have access to the classified version of the ARB report. But it is worth remembering that the CIA was responsible for security at the “annex”—where most of the Americans in Benghazi were housed.)

A key finding in the ARB report was: “Security in Benghazi was not recognized and implemented as a ‘shared responsibility’ by the bureaus in Washington charged with supporting the post, resulting in stove-piped discussions and decisions on policy and security. That said, Embassy Tripoli did not demonstrate strong and sustained advocacy with Washington for increased security for Special Mission Benghazi.”

During hearings into the attack last fall and this month, State Department officials were specifically asked if a lack of financial resources played a role in the attack. The answer was no.”
