Excerpt: Chapter 10, “World War III: The Battle for Men’s Minds”

Friday, 5 January 2018 by

This is an excerpt from the book Watergate: The Hoax, by Ashton Gray, now on sale at AmazoniBooks, Barnes & Noble, and other fine book retailers. This is Chapter 10, “World War III: The Battle for Men’s Minds”


We need a program of psychosurgery and political control of our society.
The purpose is physical control of the mind. Everyone who deviates from the given norm can be surgically mutilated. The individual may think that the most important reality is his own existence, but this is only his personal point of view. This lacks historical perspective. Man does not have the right to develop his own mind. This kind of liberal orientation has great appeal. We must electrically control the brain. Some day armies and generals will be controlled by electrical stimulation of the brain.

Dr. Jose Delgado, CIA MK-ULTRA Psychiatrist

You’ve already seen the second slavery stage start. . . .
It became terribly important to them to shut all the boundaries on knowledge. And you’ve seen those things, those curtains shutting down.
And those were the shades of night falling. . . . The whole nonsense of thought police is moving right straight in. The shades of night. Now we’ve got a period here of a very short space of time.
L. Ron Hubbard, public lecture of 8 December 1952

On Thursday, 20 April 1950, the CIA’s Project BLUEBIRD was authorized by Director of the CIA Roscoe Hillenkoetter. It was the official, if hidden, declaration of a war on mankind, its ultimate goal being the eradication of individual freedom through enslavement of men’s minds and nullification of their souls.

If that sounds melodramatic, it probably is understatement, not overstatement. Under the protection and funding of the secret project, psychiatrists and doctors contracted to the CIA began an assault on freedom of thought and human dignity using horror-movie experiments that included lobotomies, icepick leucotomies, electroconvulsive shock, insulin comas, electrode implants in the brains of conscious subjects, sexual abuse, hypnosis, pain, and drugs. American and foreign citizens were used as unwitting subjects in the experiments. These human guinea pigs included US military personnel, mental patients, prison inmates, people lured in off the street, and even children.

It was the launch of World War III, a war without borders, a war on minds and souls, and it continues to this moment. Watergate—the hoax—was a strategic assault in that war.

On Tuesday, 9 May 1950—just 19 days after the secret official sanctioning of the CIA’s Project BLUEBIRD—L. Ron Hubbard’s book Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health (DMSMH) first hit the book stores and news stands. With almost uncanny insight into what the CIA secretly was doing, Hubbard said in his book that Dianetics was an approach to the mind “without drugs, hypnotism, surgery, shock, or other artificial means,” and that its goal was “creation of mental freedom,” a goal in direct opposition to the super-control over human beings that was being sought by the CIA and its minions. That marked Hubbard as an enemy of the CIA who had to be captured and controlled, or eliminated.

About two weeks after DMSMH was published, on or about Thursday, 25 May 1950, a high-ranking officer from the Office of Naval Research (ONR) visited L. Ron Hubbard in Washington, DC. The Office of Naval Research was a primary contractor in the CIA’s obsession with mind control techniques, and the officer was demanding that Hubbard work for them:

So this fellow, this officer from the Office of Naval Research, came to see me right here in Washington and he wanted me to go on as a civilian employee in order to use what I knew of the mind to make men more suggestible.

And I smiled a feline smile. And I said, “No.”

And he smiled like something out of Faust, and he said to me, “Well, all you have to do is say ‘no,’ and I will call you back to active duty because you still are an officer of the United States Navy.”

And with that purr he exited.

What the ONR officer didn’t know was that several years earlier, on 14 November 1947, Hubbard had submitted a letter resigning from the US Naval Reserve. Although he had received permission to resign, he had withdrawn the resignation request on 19 February 1948, in response to a letter from the Chief of Naval Personnel asking him to reconsider. When the ONR officer who was demanding that Hubbard work for them left, Hubbard dug up his letter of permission to resign. On Saturday, 27 May 1950, he convinced an admiral at the Potomac River Naval Command to accept the resignation and get it officially approved:

4303 Elm St.
Bethesda, Md.
May 27, 1950

FROM: Lieut. LaFayette R. Hubbard, (D) USNR, 113392 (inactive).
TO: The Secretary of Navy.
VIA: The Chief of Naval Personnel.

Subj: Resignation – submission of.

1. I desire to resign my commission as lieutenant senior grade in the United States Naval Reserve as of this date.

2. Since the latter part of my active service in the war was served in a hospital, under treatment for nine months, and since I have been before survey boards and the retiring board, I do not believe I could further serve in event of further emergency. Retirement was not granted but I am still considered to be 50% disabled by the Veteran’s Administration.

3. As a writer, I sometimes must write on technical subjects and while these have no bearing on naval matters or government security of any kind I would feel much freer were I not a commissioned officer in the naval reserve.

4. In 1948 I tendered a resignation which was answered with a request from the secretary that I consider the matter again. I have duly considered this action and discover that I still find it expedient to resign.

5. As I would not be of use in the event of war, as I have taken no part in post war naval activities, it is certain that my continued commissioned status is of no benefit to the navy. It is therefore respectfully requested and urged that this resignation be accepted.

Secretary of the Navy

Hubbard happily had the approval of resignation waiting when the ONR officer returned:

When the high brass came back to see me again, he says, “Well, have you decided?”

“Yes,” I said, “I’ve decided not to go in.”

He said, “Well,” he said, “I guess I have no other choice but to draft you in at your old rank.”

And I said, “I’m very sorry”—omitting the “Sir,”—“I’m very sorry, but I’m no longer a member of the Armed Services.”

He said, “What’s this?”

I said, “Yes, as a matter of fact here it is. Here’s the Secretary of the Navy’s okay. He accepted my—”

And that was an end of a beautiful friendship with the American government.

Less than three weeks later, DMSMH hit The New York Times Best Sellers list, on Sunday, 18 June 1950, and stayed there for over six months. To say that the episode with ONR was “an end of a beautiful friendship with the American government” was definitely understatement; it was the beginning of an all-out war by the US government— and its Commonwealth allies—on Hubbard, Dianetics, and, subsequently, Scientology.

The wildfire popularity of Dianetics catapulted Hubbard into the limelight. He began touring with a dizzying schedule of public lectures, sometimes lecturing daily. He set up the Hubbard Dianetic Research Foundation and taught a full-time Dianetics course, “The Professional Course,” part of which included more personal lectures. By July 1950, even haughty Time magazine—a CIA mouthpiece under the CIA’s Operation Mockingbird—had to weigh in on the phenomenon:

Bookstores in Los Angeles were selling “Dianetics” on an under-the-counter basis. Armed with the manual, which they called simply “The Book,” fanatical converts overflowed Saturday night meetings in Hollywood, held Dianetics parties, formed clubs, and “audited” (treated) each other.

By the end of 1950, over 750 Dianetics groups had been formed in the US. It became an occasion for much wailing and gnashing of psychiatric teeth, with psychologists and psychiatrists practically lining up to write or speak scathing, bitter denunciations of Hubbard and Dianetics in any media that would host them. Many of those publications and media outlets were CIA mouthpieces under Operation Mockingbird, which included all major US newspapers, news syndicates, magazines, and radio and TV networks. Colin A. Ross summarized the CIA mind-control bedfellows in his landmark book, The CIA Doctors—Human Rights Violations by American Psychiatrists:

The participation of psychiatrists and medical schools in mind control research was not a matter of a few scattered doctors pursuing questionable lines of investigation. . . . Rather, the mind control experimentation was systematic, organized, and involved many leading psychiatrists and medical schools. . . . Mind control contractors with TOP SECRET clearance included the American Psychological Association, past presidents of the American Psychiatric Association and the Society for Biological Psychiatry, and psychiatrists who have received awards from the American Psychological Association and the American Psychiatric Association.

Psychologists and psychiatrists—hereinafter the psycho-establishment—had enjoyed an iron-grip monopoly on the mind of man for decades, and had built a multibillion dollar industry in league with the pharmaceutical giants, pushing drugs such as chlorpromazine, scopolamine, opiates, mescaline, cocaine, amphetamines, barbiturates, and LSD into throats and veins at an alarming rate, while also getting government subsidies for “treatments” that Torquemada would have longed for, such as electroconvulsive shock and lobotomies. The real money for the psycho-establishment, though, was just starting to flood into its bank accounts, sucked out of the pockets of hapless taxpayers through the CIA’s uncontrolled, unaccounted-for black budget pipelines.

But now Hubbard had come along and put mental therapy into the hands of housewives, busboys, bus drivers, engineers, executives, shoe salesmen, construction workers—in short, anyone who could read DMSMH and follow the relatively simple processes and techniques—and the entire subject of Dianetics was aimed at freeing the mind, not controlling, suppressing, or enslaving it. Dianetics was a dire threat to the entire psycho-establishment, its Big-Pharma twisted sisters, and the CIA.

If that weren’t bad enough, Hubbard raised the stakes exponentially in August 1951 when he published his follow-up to DMSMH, a book called Science of Survival. In it, Hubbard sent a shot directly across the CIA’s bow—and, ironically, across the Soviet KGB’s bow, too (emphasis added):

There is another form of hypnotism which falls between the surgical operation and straight hypnotism without physical pain. This form of hypnotism has been a carefully guarded secret of certain military and intelligence organizations. It is a vicious war weapon and may be of considerably more use in conquering a society than the atom bomb. This is no exaggeration. The extensiveness of the use of this form of hypnotism in espionage work is so wide today that it is long past the time when people should have become alarmed about it. It required dianetic processing to uncover pain-drug-hypnosis. Otherwise, pain-drug-hypnosis was out of sight, unsuspected, and unknown.

Pain-drug-hypnosis is a wicked extension of narco-synthesis, the drug hypnosis used in America only during and since the last war.

The implications were grim for the intelligence agencies and their mad scientists of mind control: Dianetic processes had exposed the very techniques that the CIA, the KGB, and the psycho-establishment on both “sides” were using in their tireless, costly, and very secret efforts to create a “Manchurian Candidate”—a sort of automaton who would carry out post-hypnotic commands laid in with pain, drugs, and hypnosis (PDH). Dianetics could penetrate the “veil” of amnesia that the CIA and its psycho-establishment sycophants had labored so long to be able to produce in its subjects, and Dianetics even could reveal the very methods that had been used to create the amnesia.

The same month as the wide-scale publication of Science of Survival, on 20 August 1951, the CIA changed the name of its mind control project from BLUEBIRD to ARTICHOKE. Nobody ever has established anything resembling a rational explanation for why the name was changed, but then, it’s the CIA, and “rational” is probably too high a standard to expect. The name change did serve, though, as a rhetorical shell game to introduce confusion—and confusion is the CIA’s No. 1 product.

Aside from the obvious, one prime reason for the CIA to create its own dark curtain of secrecy to hide behind was that some of the biggest banking and industrial interests in the world were active participants in trying to gain control over the minds of men. H.P. Albarelli, Jr., in his seminal work, A Terrible Mistake—The Murder of Frank Olson and the CIA’s Secret Cold War Experiments, revealed how the Rockefellers were fueling more than vehicles with their Standard Oil fortunes; they were helping to fuel the psycho- establishment:

The US Department of Health, Education and Welfare (HEW) undertook drug experiments sponsored by the CIA when [Nelson] Rockefeller was department undersecretary in 1953. Many of these experiments involved CIA funding and required Rockefeller’s specific approval. Also, beginning in the early 1950s, the Rockefeller Foundation had been funding CIA front groups like the Fund for Human Ecology, which was directly involved in CIA- supported behavior “modification” experiments. Beginning even earlier, in 1943, the Foundation had been funding a psychiatric research facility, the Allan Memorial Institute in Montreal, Canada, which soon became the site of some of the CIA’s most notorious and horrific psychological experiments, conducted by Rockefeller-funded Dr. Ewen Cameron.

That’s part of the reason why Nelson Rockefeller would become one of the prime actors in the CIA’s takedown of Hubbard, the theft of Hubbard’s OT Levels, and the subsequent cover-up.

Hubbard had been correct in saying that pain-drug-hypnosis “may be of considerably more use in conquering a society than the atom bomb,” as some of the available declassified documents on CIA mind control experiments with hypnosis demonstrate:

Hypnotic Experimentation and Research, 10 February 1954
Miss [Doe]171 was then instructed (having previously expressed a fear of firearms in any fashion) that she would use every method at her disposal to awaken Miss [Jones] (now in a deep hypnotic sleep) and failing in this, she would pick up a pistol nearby and fire it at Miss [Jones]. She was instructed that her rage would be so great that she would not hesitate to “kill” Miss [Jones] for failing to awaken. Miss [Doe] carried out these suggestions to the letter including firing the (unloaded pneumatic pistol) gun at Miss [Jones] and then proceeding to fall into a deep sleep. After proper suggestions were made, both were awakened and expressed complete amnesia for the entire sequence. Miss [Doe] was again handed the gun, which she refused (in an awakened state) to pick up or accept from the operator. She expressed absolute denial that the foregoing sequence had happened.

Two other subjects also carried out their post-hypnotic suggestions “to the letter” and had no memory of the experiment:

SI [Special Interrogations] and H [Hypnosis] Experimentation (25 September 1951)
[Miss White] was instructed that upon awakening, she would proceed to [Mr. Black’s] room where she would wait at the desk for a telephone call. Upon receiving the call, a person known as “Jim” would engage her in normal conversation. During the course of the conversation, this individual would mention a code word to [Miss White]. When she heard this code word she would pass into a SI trance state, but would not close her eyes and remain perfectly normal and continue the telephone conversation. She was told that thereafter upon conclusion of the telephone conversation, she would then carry out the following instructions:

[Miss White], being in a complete SI state at this time, was then told to open her eyes and was shown an electric timing device. She was informed that this timing device was an incendiary bomb and was then instructed how to attach and set the device. After [Miss White] had indicated that she had learned how to set and attach the device, she was told to return to a sleep state and further instructed that upon concluding of the aforementioned conversation, she would take the timing device which was in a briefcase and proceed to the ladies room.

In the ladies room, she would be met by a girl whom she had never seen who would identify herself by the code word “New York.” After identifying herself, [Miss White] was then to show this individual how to attach and set the timing device, and further instructions would be given the individual by [Miss White] that the timing device was to be carried in the briefcase to [Mr. Black’s] room, placed in the nearest empty electric-light plug, and concealed in the bottom, left-hand drawer of [Mr. Black’s] desk, with the device set for 82 seconds and turned on. [Miss White] was further instructed to tell this other girl that as soon as the device had been set and turned on, she was to take the briefcase, leave [Mr. Black’s] room, go to the operations room, and go to the sofa and enter a deep sleep state. [Miss White] was further instructed that after completion of instructing the other girl and the transferring to the other girl of the incendiary bomb, she was to return at once to the operations room, sit on the sofa, and go into a deep sleep state.

Hypnosis was so effective at getting young ladies to do things against their will that at least one such “expert” bragged to the CIA’s head of ARTICHOKE, Morse Allen, of some of his other uses of the technique:

On 2 July 1951 approximately 1:00 p.m. the instruction began with [CIA Svengali] relating to the student some of his sexual experiences. [CIA Svengali] stated that he had constantly used hypnotism as a means of inducing young girls to engage in sexual intercourse with him. [Mrs. Clarinet], a performer in [Metropolis] orchestra, was forced to engage in sexual intercourse with [CIA Svengali] while under the influence of hypnotism. [CIA Svengali] stated that he first put her into a hypnotic trance and then suggested to her that he was her husband and that she desired sexual intercourse with him.

The arrogant indifference that the CIA and the psycho-establishment had to the inhumanity of their methods is difficult for most people to face, much less grasp, but is illuminated by more of the documents uncovered through the Freedom of Information Act, these dispassionately discussing the use of electroconvulsive shock:

Quite often amnesia occurs for events just prior to the convulsion, during the convulsion and during the post seizure state. It is possible that hypnosis or hypnotic activity induced during the post-seizure state might be lost in amnesia. This would be very valuable.

_______________________

Metrozal, which has been very useful in shock therapy, is no longer popular because, for one thing it produces feelings of overwhelming terror and doom prior to the convulsion.

But terror, anxiety, worry would be valuable for many purposes from our point of view.

3 December 1951

[Professor Shockdoctor] is reported to be an authority on electric shock. He is a professor at the Medical School of the [Sellout University] and, in addition, is a psychiatrist of considerable note. Pro[fessor Shockdoctor] is, in addition, a fully cleared Agency consultant.

[Professor Shockdoctor] explained that he felt that electric shock might be of considerable interest to the “ARTICHOKE” type of work. He stated that the standard electric- shock machine (Reiter) could be used in two ways. One setting of this machine produced the normal electric-shock treatment (including convulsion) with amnesia after a number of treatments. He stated that using this machine as an electro-shock device with the convulsive treatment, he felt that he could guarantee amnesia for certain periods of time and particularly he could guarantee amnesia for any knowledge of use of the convulsive shock.

[Professor Shockdoctor] stated that the other or lower setting of the machine produced a different type of shock. He said that he could not explain it, but knew that when this lower current type of shock was applied without convulsion, it had the effect of making a man talk. He said, however, that the use of this type of shock was prohibited because it produced in the individual excruciating pain and he stated that there would be no question in his mind that the individual would be quite willing to give information if threatened with the use of this machine.

He stated that this was a third-degree method but, undoubtedly, would be effective. [Professor Shockdoctor] stated that he had never had the device applied to himself, but he had talked with people who had been shocked in this manner and stated that they complained that their whole head was on fire and it was much too painful a treatment for any medical practice. He stated that the only way it was ever used was in connection with sedatives and even then it was extremely painful. The writer asked [Professor Shockdoctor] whether or not in the “groggy” condition following the convulsion by the electro-shock machine anyone had attempted to obtain hypnotic control over the patient, since it occurred to the writer that it would be a good time to attempt to obtain hypnotic control. [Professor Shockdoctor] stated that, to his knowledge, it had never been done, but he could make this attempt in the near future at the [Sellout University] and he would see whether or not this could be done.

[Psychiatric Dr. Zappum] and [Psychiatric Dr. Lightsocket], as well as all others present, discussed the use of electro shock at considerable length and it was [Dr. Zappum’s] opinion that an individual could gradually be reduced through the use of electro-shock treatment to the vegetable level.

The CIA’s love affair with psychiatric shock and hypnosis was matched or exceeded by its love affair with LSD. One victim of CIA experiments with the drug, Mary Ray, testified in Congress about what she had witnessed with another victim:

SENATOR KENNEDY: How old were these test subjects?
MARY RAY: I remember one girl of 17, although I saw her written up as 18, and . . . she definitely did not want to be part of the experiment.
SENATOR KENNEDY: How did you know she did not?
MARY RAY: I saw her as they were taking her in, and she said she won’t go, and they said, “Yes, you will,” and she said, “Don’t take me back to that hell,” which makes me think she had a previous experiment.
SENATOR KENNEDY: What was she doing there? You were not forced or required to do this, were you?
MARY RAY: She was a patient and she was forced. They told her she had no choice. I remember this episode very well. There was an aide on her arm restraining her, and an orderly on another, and she kept saying she did not want to go in, and they said— I do not know which it was who said that, but they said, “You have to go; you have no choice.”
SENATOR KENNEDY: What did the doctor tell her?
MARY RAY: There was no doctor there. But I went back then about one or two hours later, and at this point she was totally disintegrated. She was absolutely psychotic. Before this she was a very normal appearing person; she would joke and gossip. . . . She was attractive and talkative. But afterwards she was just a mess. She was taken back to the ward, and she was for like four days mute, and you could not get through to her in any way. I tried to test her, and I went into her room and she was just staring straight ahead. I went like this [waving hands], and it was nothing; she did not seem to see me. I took her to the testing room where there were four others, and she walked right through a chair as though it was not there. Any position I put her body in, she would stay in.

Even as L. Ron Hubbard was ringing alarm bells about the dirty secrets of CIA mind control inhumanity, the CIA was finding covert ways to make it even dirtier. Not content with forcing “subjects” to take LSD, the CIA took to slipping it to people without their knowing it. In December of 1952, a man named George Hunter White was beginning operations in Greenwich Village at a CIA “safe house”—an oxymoron in this case if there ever was one. White was using prostitutes to lure unsuspecting men to the gaudy apartment, where they would be slipped doses of LSD, and would be induced into a variety of sex acts. White would film what happened through a two-way mirror for the edification of the CIA. (Your tax dollars at work.) White later would move his operation to the Haight-Ashbury section of San Francisco. The SF Weekly reported about White’s perverted project in a 2012 article, “Operation Midnight Climax: How the CIA Dosed S.F. Citizens with LSD”:

There were at least three CIA safe houses in the Bay Area where experiments went on. Chief among them was 225 Chestnut on Telegraph Hill, which operated from 1955 to 1965. The L-shaped apartment boasted sweeping waterfront views, and was just a short trip up the hill from North Beach’s rowdy saloons. Inside, prostitutes paid by the government to lure clients to the apartment served up acid-laced cocktails to unsuspecting johns, while martini- swilling secret agents observed their every move from behind a two-way mirror. Recording devices were installed, some disguised as electrical outlets.

To get the guys in the mood, the walls were adorned with photographs of tortured women in bondage and provocative posters from French artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. The agents grew fascinated with the kinky sex games that played out between the johns and the hookers. The two-way mirror in the bedroom gave the agents a close-up view of all the action.

The CIA’s abuse of unsuspecting civilians with LSD wasn’t limited to White’s tax-funded pads of perversion, or even to the United States. The sad story of an artist named Stanley Glickman is told in the ruling of a civil suit brought on his behalf against the CIA’s mind-control masterminds, Sidney Gottlieb and Richard Helms. [In this book, the court’s footnotes and citations to case law have been removed for flow of the narrative; the full document is available on the Internet. —Ed.] :

In October 1952, Stanley Milton Glickman was pursuing a promising career as an artist in Paris, having had one of his works accepted for exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

One evening after he had finished his day’s work, Glickman arrived at a cafe he frequented and was approached by an acquaintance, who wanted him to meet some American friends across the street at the Cafe Select. Glickman met the American men at their table and then engaged in “several hours of hostile debate,” focusing on “power, patriotism, and changing the world to conform with their personal beliefs.”

When Glickman prepared to leave, the “chief protagonist” among the Americans offered him a drink as a conciliatory gesture. Glickman initially declined but yielded after the man persisted through “obnoxious pressure.” Rather than call over the waiter, the man walked to the bar to get the drink. [Glickman] observed that the man had a clubfoot.

Halfway through the drink, Glickman “began to experience a lengthening of distance and a distortion of [his] perception,” and he noticed that “the faces of the gentlemen flushed with excitement as they watched the execution of the drink.” The man with the clubfoot steered the conversation to “the working of miracles” and suggested that Glickman “surely [. . .] would be capable of this power.” Glickman declined, then emptied his glass and said good night.

He then experienced colors and lights that had “changed” and “distant figures following [his] difficult path home.” He believed that he had been poisoned, and awoke the next morning “hallucinating intensely.” Glickman states that “the effects of the drink would today be described as a classic LSD experience.”

Over the next two weeks, Glickman “wandered in the pain of madness, delusion and terror,” ultimately returning to the Cafe Select and deliberately closing his eyes to “wait for ‘someone’ to come and tell me what had happened.” With his eyes remaining closed, Glickman was carried from the cafe, placed in an automobile and taken to the American Hospital in Paris on November 11, 1952.

After two brief stays in the hospital, during which he claims he was administered electroshock via catheter and “large doses” of “hallucinatory drugs,” a friend helped him sign out of the hospital and return to his studio. Over the next ten months Glickman remained mostly in his studio with his continuing “madness,” experiencing “stress, terror, hallucination and difficulty eating.” Glickman’s family helped him to return to the United States in July 1953.

After returning to this country, Glickman was cared for by family members and doctors to the extent that his physical condition but not his mental condition was improved. During the next twenty-five years of his life, Glickman gradually became “functional” and held various jobs, but he never painted again and was unable to maintain any normal social life.

Despite copious evidence of the CIA having engaged in just such activity with others, Glickman’s lawsuit was thrown out on a technicality.

On 13 April 1953, the CIA’s name-changing shell game had dubbed the mind-control projects as MK-ULTRA, a name it would keep into the 1970s. Under the new name, the program was a pet project of Richard Helms, then the Chief of Operations in the CIA’s Directorate for Plans. The head of the project, answering to Helms, was the CIA’s man with the club foot, the morally detached Sidney Gottlieb.

In the early days of MK-ULTRA, one of the CIA’s own biological warfare scientists, Frank Olson, wasn’t as lucky as Stanley Glickman had been. On 19 November 1953, Gottlieb slipped LSD into Cointreau served to a number of CIA associates who had gone for a weekend at the Deep Creek Lodge, including Frank Olson. Olson thought he was going insane—which he was, except he didn’t realize it was drug-induced insanity. Olson went into a state of extreme paranoia and suffered a mental breakdown. The CIA shuffled him from place to place in the “care” of Gottlieb’s deputy, Robert Lashbrook, having Olson seen by one of their own pet medicos, but the man’s condition worsened. At about 2:30 a.m. on 28 November 1953, Olson crashed through a window on the 13th floor of the Hotel Statler in New York City, where he and Lashbrook had been staying. It was not a soft landing. Sheffield Edwards, the CIA’s Chief of Security at the time, sent a certain CIA security employee to the Statler to help Lashbrook with the cover-up in the aftermath of Olson’s death plunge. The agent’s name should be familiar:

According to his typed report, stamped “SECRET” and dated five days later, James McCord knocked on the door of Room 488 at New York’s Statler Hotel around 7:50A.M. on November 28th, only about five hours after Frank Olson had died.

The initial ruling was suicide, and the matter was hushed up for decades, until 29 January 1975, when the CIA incautiously created a “Memorandum for the Record” to give to Justice Department attorneys who were doing an investigation into a series of articles about the CIA written by Seymour Hersch. Gottlieb’s LSD complicity emerged from the investigation.

The CIA settled with Olson’s family in 1975 for $750,000 [$3,393,236.99 in 2015 dollars]. Years later, Frank Olson’s son Eric Olson had his father’s body exhumed. An autopsy and an on-site investigation at the Hotel Pennsylvania—formerly the Hotel Statler—was conducted by a team headed by James Starrs, a professor of law and forensic science at the George Washington University Law Center. The team discovered a hematoma that was evidence of blunt force trauma to Frank Olson’s head. Near the end of Starrs’ report, he wrote:

In the present state of our factual knowledge about the death of Dr. Olson, I would venture to say that this hematoma is singular evidence of the possibility that Dr. Olson was struck a stunning blow to the head by some person or instrument prior to his exiting through the window of Room 1018A.

Starrs added that the composite of the evidence was “rankly and starkly suggestive of homicide,” but he and his team had encountered the CIA trademark confessions, confessions, and more confessions that were, of course, lies, lies, and more lies:

It is well-nigh impossible to separate the truth from the fabrications in the documentary evidence we have exhaustingly and exhaustively reviewed. In 1953 the lies outpaced the truth by a mile. Not only were these lies told patently to conceal the full nature of the CIA’s involvement in behavioral modification experiments through the use of drugs, only one of which was LSD, but the lies were also motivated by a calculated effort to keep the Olson family in the dark and from becoming suspicious, by providing the necessary foundation for an award of a federal employee death benefit to Dr. Olson’s survivors.

The extent to which this manhandling of the truth also evolved from a desperate concern lest a homicide by the CIA be revealed is beyond the ability of anyone but the possible malefactors to say.

The CIA was so rabid in its foaming pursuit and distribution of LSD that by early 1953 it had arranged for one of its many corporate prostitutes, the Eli Lilly Company, to synthesize it for them—illegally, according to a CIA “memo for the record” of 3 February 1953 by Robert Lashbrook, the same man who was with Frank Olson at the time of Olson’s death:

Since the unusual properties of ergot and, more importantly, Lysergic Acid [LSD] have been known to ARTICHOKE for some time, the development of this chemical has been of intense interest. . . . For matters of record, apparently chemists of the Eli Lilly Company working for [CIA’s Technical Services Staff] have in the past few weeks succeeded in breaking the secret formula held by Sandoz for the manufacture of Lysergic Acid and have manufactured for this Agency a large quantity of Lysergic Acid which is available for our experimentation. This work is a closely guarded [TSS] secret and should not be mentioned generally.

How far did the CIA and its pack of psycho-establishment mind control minions go? Consider the testimony of one Claudia Mullen before a 1995 Presidential commission investigating CIA experiments in radiation on human subjects:

Between the years 1957 and 1984 I became a pawn in the government’s game. Its ultimate goal was mind control and to create the perfect spy, all through the use of chemicals, radiation, drugs, hypnosis, electric shock, isolation in tubs of water, sleep deprivation, brainwashing, verbal, physical, emotional and sexual abuse. I was exploited unwittingly for nearly three decades of my life and the only explanations given to me were “that the end justifies the means” and “I was serving my country in their bold effort to fight communism.”

I can only summarize my circumstances by saying they took an already abused 7-year- old child and compounded my suffering beyond belief. The saddest part is, I know for a fact I was not alone.

Many books have been written solely to increase public awareness of the ineffable abuses carried out by the CIA and the psycho-establishment, and every concerned American should read them. They include, but are not limited to, The Search for the Manchurian Candidate, by John Marks; Acid Dreams, by Martin A. Lee and Bruce Shlain; A Terrible Mistake—The Murder of Frank Olson and the CIA’s Secret Cold War Experiments, by H.P. Alberelli, Jr.; and The CIA Doctors—Human Rights Violations by American Psychiatrists, by Colin M. Ross, M.D.

Ross has exhaustively cataloged the limited available documentation on the CIA mind control experiments. The reason it’s limited is because in January of 1973—just months after the CIA contract with the Scientology OTs—Sidney Gottlieb and the Sophisticated Butcher Richard Helms conspired to destroy the bulk of CIA records on the mind control programs. Ross has chapters on CIA-sponsored sadists such as Dr. Ewen Cameron, who benefitted from Rockefeller sponsorship, and Louis Jolyon “Jolly” West, who once killed an elephant with LSD. Ross describes some of Ewen Cameron’s “psychic driving” experiments:

Psychic driving was a procedure carried out in two stages; in the first stage, patients were depatterned, which meant they were reduced to a vegetable state through a combination of massive amounts of electroconvulsive shock, drug-induced sleep, and sensory isolation and deprivation. When fully depatterned, patients were incontinent of urine and feces, unable to feed themselves, and unable to state their name, age, location, or the current date.

In the second stage, psychic driving was introduced. This consisted of hundreds of hours of tape loops being played to the patient through earphones, special helmets or speakers in the sensory isolation room. The tape loops repeated statements of supposed psychological significance.

Ross, in the introduction to his book, curiously stands up for the CIA, laying all blame for the atrocities at the door of the psycho-establishment psychiatrists and institutions. While Ross deserves all accolades for his humanitarian work in exposing their abuses, he apparently has never made the observation that bunnies do not bed down with snakes.

Wherever anyone would like to lay the blame, the fact of the CIA having been in a decades long war—that continues right now—to control the minds of men, both individually and collectively, is inarguable.

It’s also inarguable that the enemy in its war never was the Soviet Union during the so-called Cold War. That is a specious argument because both nations were working toward the same goal: enslavement of the minds of men. They were on the same side.

They both had one common enemy, though: L. Ron Hubbard. He had turned them both down when they attempted to lure or conscript him into their service to use Dianetics or Scientology for mind control. By 1955, he reported to the FBI that there had been three attempts by the Russians to lure him into coming there and working for them, even promising him the use of Pavlov’s laboratories. In that same year, in a Professional Auditor’s Bulletin article titled “Psychiatrists,” Hubbard gave a glimpse of the consequences that had befallen Dianetics and Scientology organizations—perfectly reflecting the exact types of actions that the CIA and the psycho-establishment were involved in at the time, but which wouldn’t be publically exposed for 20 more years:

I could tell you about long strings of psychotics run in on the [Dianetics] Foundation and the [Scientology] Association, sent in to us by psychiatrists who then, using LSD and pain-drug- hypnosis, spun them and told everyone Dianetics and Scientology drove people insane.

There’s no question that the agency behind such tactics aimed at Hubbard was the Agency: the CIA. It was the major “pusher” for the world’s supply of LSD, and would soon flood it all over the country through its drug distribution network of psychiatrists, mafia hoods, and other scum that did its bidding.

That same year, 1955, the deadly serious operations by the CIA-Cult against Hubbard and Scientology became almost comical in the way Hubbard seemed to play cat-and- mouse with them. That is illustrated by one brief timeline:

15 c. March 1955
Hubbard sends a dispatch by wire to the US Department of Defense, “concerning a solution to brainwashing.” [NOTE: Later events imply that Hubbard may have been “dying the waters” to see where such a suggestion would lead. It led to an attack by the IRS on the Hubbard Association of Scientologists in Phoenix, Arizona, closing its doors. It would not be the last time that the US sicced the IRS dawgs on Scientology. —Ed.]

11 July 1955
Hubbard notifies the FBI of the dispatch sent in March 1955 to the US Department of Defense about a solution to brainwashing.

15 August 1955
Just over a month after Hubbard’s letter to the FBI about brainwashing, the staff of CIA Director Allen W. Dulles completes a classified report entitled “A Report on Communist Brainwashing.”

4 September 1955
Less than three weeks after the CIA produced its internal report, Hubbard sends a letter off to a printer in Wichita, Kansas, ordering 2,000 copies of a saddle-stitched softcover book that would later become famous as “The Brainwashing Manual,” its official title being, “Brain- Washing: A Synthesis of the Russian Textbook on Psychopolitics.” [NOTE: There have been accusations and popular speculation that Hubbard himself wrote the booklet to expose how the psycho-establishment worked both sides of the Cold War, but he never claimed authorship and it has never been proven. —Ed.]

7 September 1955
Hubbard sends another letter to the FBI, this time almost openly taunting them about his having gotten the jump on and having one-upped the Department of Defense and the CIA: “I am getting additional copies of the material which was offered to the Defense Department since that agency has not acknowledged or returned anything shipped to it about brain- washing [sic: brainwashing], and when I have these copies I will send one to you, for this is the only starting place I know about for this outbreak [emphasis added], and the matter, while far from conclusive, at least tells me that something went astray which was dangerous in the wrong hands [emphasis added].”

Had Hubbard known exactly what was being done inside the hallowed halls of the FBI, Langley CIA Headquarters, and the Department of Defense concerning brainwashing? There’s no way of knowing for certain, but it must have been a source of embarrassment for FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover that Hubbard had sent these letters and the “Brainwashing Manual” to the FBI, but CIA Director Dulles didn’t send Hoover a copy of the CIA’s own report on brainwashing for seven more months, on 25 April 1956.

Hubbard resolutely refused to allow any government to gain any monopoly on Dianetics or Scientology, and when he later developed the secret Scientology OT Levels, he slammed the door on government intelligence agencies ever getting their hands on them—that is, until Hal Puthoff, Ingo Swann, Pat Price, and Watergate came along.

In a 10 April 1953 talk to a Princeton University National Alumni Conference, the Director of Central Intelligence, Allen W. Dulles, wondered aloud if the people of the United States realized “how sinister the battle for men’s minds” had become “in Soviet hands.” It was typical of the disingenuous in-your-face arrogance of Dulles and his cronies, because it was a foreshadowing of how sinister the battle for men’s minds would become in the hands of Dulles, his CIA gang of criminals, and his successor directors as they carried out their own unspeakable atrocities against humankind. Those atrocities ramped up to a whole new level just three days after the Dulles talk at Princeton—on Monday, 13 April 1953, when Dulles unleashed the CIA’s MK-ULTRA, a program of premeditated torture and brutality dreamed up by Richard Helms.

As amoral and repulsive as the battle for men’s minds was, it only ran second to the CIA’s battle for men’s souls.

The CIA Psyops of Watergate and Beyond

Thursday, 7 December 2017 by

This is an excerpt from the book  Watergate: The Hoax, by Ashton Gray, now on sale at AmazoniBooks, Barnes & Noble, and other fine book retailers. This is Appendix III, “The CIA Psyops of Watergate and Beyond,” offered here in full as a public service because these same psyops are being used in the world today:

Although G. Gordon Liddy was not “officially” part of the CIA, he was operating under “special clearances” granted to him by CIA, and met at key times with high-level CIA officials. He also was supplied with disguises, false I.D., and equipment by the CIA, all crucial to many of the CIA psyops behind Watergate, the hoax.


Appendix III: The CIA Psyops of Watergate and Beyond

This is a warning: Watergate is a mine field of psychological operations techniques—PSYOPS. You’re free to ignore this warning. You can turn right to the first chapter and read this book without reading this appendix. The book was conceived and crafted as a path through that mine field, so you will come out the other end intact either way.

Your understanding and appreciation of what you’re walking through in reading it, though, will be greatly enhanced by investing a few minutes in reviewing some of the more deadly PSYOPS techniques that you’ll encounter—from a safe distance.

This appendix doesn’t pretend to be an exhaustive study of such black psychological techniques; it merely outlines major ones used in the packaging and selling of a CIA hoax of remarkable scope that is commonly known as “Watergate.”

“HISTORY” BY MANUFACTURED CONFESSION

Watergate is largely a false universe of purported history made up of some truth and a great many lies, most being in the form of “confessions.” It is an infinitely elastic universe, because its sum can’t possibly exist except in each individual perceiver’s mind. Once the volunteered “confessions” and accounts and testimony are closely compared, so many contradictions emerge that in order for much of Watergate to have happened at all, a universe with multiple time streams is required.

These contradictions aren’t the result of mere misperceptions by different eyewitnesses; these are cooked, manufactured fictions by people supposedly “confessing” their acts and the acts of others, or “confessing” a false purpose for certain acts. Their accounts of events, and of several staged phony “events,” contain elements of PSYOPS that are planted for no other purpose than to confuse, and, by confusing, to deflect close inspection and comparison that would reveal the lies.

This goes beyond what is commonly referred to in the intelligence trade as a “limited hangout”: voluntarily confessing to certain sins to deflect attention from others that are far more serious.

CONTRADICTIONS TO CREATE CONFUSION

A time-honored and favorite intelligence technique for creating confusion is to supply two separate and contradictory accounts of what purportedly is the same event. The mind locks. It cannot be resolved. No certain truth can be reached about the time span of the event, because both contradictory accounts cannot be true. The mind is forced to make a choice between two accounts that might both be false, or to leave it unresolved, yet still attempt to link that enduring mystery to other claimed or actual events that depend on it, or that take place around it. The landscape of Watergate is littered with such mental traps. They work hand-in-hand with the next op:

CONTRADICTION BY MULTIPLE SOURCES: THE COMMONALITIES

One frequently used technique to spread a tremendous amount of confusion is to supply seemingly plausible accounts of the “same” events through different sources, with the

varying accounts appearing at different times and in different places. A variation is to have several different accounts from one source, but told at different times. Each of the conflicting accounts has certain major commonly agreed-upon and sometimes true components. These are crucial to the fraud. The perceiver’s mind latches onto these common components they’ve heard about from “multiple sources,” and attempts to synthesize it all together into a cohesive whole, no matter how many details are at variance and odds with each other. The contradictory details most often are overlooked. That factor alone is the key to the success of the fraud.

That’s the way Watergate was packaged. To hear one participant’s testimony, it often makes some kind of “sense.” To read another perp’s book, it makes “sense.” The different accounts agree on certain points, but wildly diverge on others. The mind constructs a mental universe in which all these things are able to take place, and in which time not only is elastic, but even can be, and often must be, subconsciously subdivided into separate parallel, but unsynchronized, time streams.

THE MANIPULATION OF TIME

What the human imagination can do with time is infinite. When presented, as in Watergate, with multiple seemingly consistent but actually time-contradictory accounts and stories from multiple sources—each of which purports to be “fact”—the perceiver’s mind can, and will, subconsciously create parallel time streams. Consider a railroad track suddenly splitting off into four or six different tracks, each regulated with a different clock, those then merging again somehow at the commonalities, with common time, then splitting again, and so on.

This gets so absurd in Watergate that, when exposed, it can’t help but be funny, even with the realization that the CIA operation was an act of Treason during a time of war.

Only a careful and detailed comparison of all the accounts side-by-side, on one and only one time stream—the one governed by the motion of heavenly bodies and measured by clocks—reveals that no such set of events possibly could have taken place in objective reality.

A twist on this psyop is making the “time” in an incident or event as vague and indeterminate as possible, or giving an entirely false date. Among the dirtiest tricks is merely describing “events” with no date at all, which causes the “events” to float timelessly, and to shift around in the mind’s attempt to make them fit against other events. This is especially vicious when the “events” are simply fictions, or a mixture of fact and fiction. The lack of time information makes it extremely difficult to find any evidence to prove or disprove the anecdotal claims. CIA ops commonly leave out any definite date for a described event, or give a “date” that might be months or even a year or more off. Several instances have been found, by comparison to other sources, of the wrong year being given when the month and day are correct. Another psyop is to give a wrong sequence of events, especially when coupled with lack of any actual date.

These tricks with time create havoc in analysis.

FALSEHOODS AND OMISSIONS

Two major building blocks of false “histories” are: falsehoods that can’t be disproved (see Closed Doors And Clandestine Interaction below), and omissions of important facts. Through the use of an exacting timeline, the most blatant falsehoods often can be located. Once that’s done, more subtle falsehoods inevitably emerge, since they are necessary to the greater ones. By that stripping away of layers of falsity, omissions begin to emerge, the most obvious ones being the omission of whatever truth the lies were invented to conceal. This book was possible only by reference to a timeline database of over 11,000 entries.

Omissions are their own subject. Inevitably, where a false “reality” is being created to supplant or cover up the truth, many small omissions will be scattered throughout. They are difficult to perceive, because they are not there. This sounds obvious, but it is almost always missed. This is the irony of attempting to describe a “nothing.” People fail to look for what should be there—but isn’t. They merely accept what is supplied, even when what is supplied is false, and so create their own “explanations” to fill in the gaps. Life abhors a vacuum. It is difficult for life to perceive a vacuum, an absence, a “not there,” so life tends to fill the gap, often subconsciously. Some people find it next to impossible to look for omissions, so automatic and instant is their construction of “reasonable explanations” for entirely unreasonable circumstances, whether those be falsehoods or, commonly, omissions, or a combination.

Thus researchers and investigators and analysts and writers playing “connect the dots” with Watergate have been only connecting a considerable amount of fiction with very little verifiable fact, building mental “bridges” to span the gaps. Often they have attempted to do this over considerable yawning chasms, and hence the endless “theories” attempting to bridge the gaps and resolve the contradictions. Results and conclusions of such methods inevitably are false in varying degrees, and, however “interesting,” are ultimately unsatisfactory, since people by and large have a sense on some level of when they have been denied the truth.

THE PLURAL VS. SINGULAR MIND SPINNER

A subset of falsehoods and contradictions, this is a black ops technique used like repeated blows of a blunt instrument to the head all throughout Watergate and its “testimony.” It is used over and over and over to confound and confuse, but is so subtle as almost to escape notice entirely. The Senate Watergate Committee, for example, let floods of plural vs. singular contradictions go by.

The basic technique is to keep changing the singular/plural reference to items that play a role—sometimes even items that never had any existence at all.

It is used in the number of “bugs” supposedly planted in the Watergate, when there were none at all. It is used by E. Howard Hunt and the first lawyer for the Watergate burglars, Douglas Caddy, in the number of partners of Caddy’s law firm supposedly contacted by Caddy. It is used by Alfred Baldwin in referring to the number of “receiving units” in the Howard Johnson Motel rooms. It is used in reference to the number of Howard Johnson rooms occupied at any given time. It is used by Alfred Baldwin in the number of “logs” he purportedly hand-delivered to CREP headquarters (the real number is zero). And it is used by John Dean, L. Patrick Gray, Charles Colson, and E. Howard Hunt in their “Diem cables” fraud.

It is sheer hell on the mind. It keeps it in a constant state of uncertainty at a very low level of awareness, and it is almost never noticed by anybody unless this black PSYOPS technique is known about and pointed out as a well-trained black operation, used by operatives with malice aforethought to keep things in a state of constant confusion. That is its purpose.

THE PRINCIPLE OF DUPLICATES—“TWOSIES”

This is a deadly PSYOPS technique of planting near-duplicates as a method of creating enormous confusion. Certainly, life can and does produce coincidences of seeming similarity. But there is a knowing malefic use of this phenomenon that is done solely to confuse. It has been called a “burdensome fog” by John Gillespie.

One vicious example in Watergate is the purported “logs” of wiretaps. The stories of the co-conspirators allude to two complete (but entirely fictional) sets of these “logs”: one set supposedly made by Alfred Baldwin, another by G. Gordon Liddy that purportedly was created to “fix” Baldwin’s set—which never existed in the first place.

The phony “break-in” at the office of Daniel Ellsberg’s psychiatrist, Dr. Louis Fielding, and the later purported but entirely fictional “first break-in” at the Watergate were concocted to be extremely similar: both over holiday weekends, both using many of the same personnel, both having “walkie-talkie problems,” both failing to accomplish their purported (entirely false) “objectives,” and many more close similarities that one can count once the black PSYOPS techniques to generate such confusion is known.

On the subject of Dr. Fielding, another critical example is John Dean’s assistant, Fred Fielding, whose last-name counterpart, Dr. Fielding, is so important in the “Pentagon Papers” fraud that led to Watergate, itself merely the opening act in the greater CIA fraud. It is no accident that Dean was supplied with an “assistant” whose last name was Fielding. Both Fieldings are linked to the activities of E. Howard Hunt in crucial ways. In some of the testimony, particularly Dean’s, only the last name is used repeatedly. This is a trained technique used repeatedly for maximum destruction. It is tantamount to a stun grenade every place it is used. It scatters attention off in two different directions, on two different “tracks,” widely separated in time: in this case the “Dr. Fielding” CIA op of early September 1971, and the “Fred Fielding” involvement in the other CIA op, the fraud of Hunt’s “Diem cables,” which supposedly took place in 1972—but both “Fieldings” were injected into public view at about the same time in 1973 through the testimony of John Dean.

For now, suffice it to say that John Dean is the person whose role it was to make the “revelations” of both of these CIA operations, both involving “Fieldings” and E. Howard Hunt in some crucial way, and both designed to point away from CIA and at the White House. Dean did it when he had maximum world exposure: in the Senate Watergate hearings. Both of these “revelations” and “confessions” by Dean had world-shaking consequences.

CLOSED DOORS AND CLANDESTINE INTERACTION

A PSYOPS technique heavily relied upon in Watergate to create the conflicts and fictions described generally above is alleged private, secret talks and meetings and activities

between two, or a few, of the principal actors, with nothing more than their own assertions of what the subject and substance of such an interaction was. An almost inconceivable amount of what we know as Watergate is built on no more foundation, and it is no foundation at all. It often is pure fiction.

In most instances where we literally are forced to rely on the accounts of a small number of the co-conspirators interacting, one of more of the persons involved has known CIA background, connections, clearances, employment, or all four. The Watergate literature is so strewn with one-on-one encounters that the exceptions are easier to count than the instances.

All of the people involved in these clandestine interactions have been solidly documented as having told knowing, willful lies, even under oath, about these same events. Therefore, it is of an importance that cannot be overstated to recognize, in each instance where a private meeting or phone call purportedly takes place between two criminal co-conspirators, that the most that can be known with any relative certainty is that such an interchange took place.

Worse than that, there are important places in the record where close inspection and comparison leads to the only reasonable conclusion that even the claim of such two-party (or more) interaction is itself a completely manufactured fiction, never mind any claimed substance, purpose, or subject.

One startlingly elaborate example is the entirely manufactured and fictional Watergate “first break-in” and its two-week aftermath. The purported “break-in” involves seven people over three days of whole-cloth fiction. Layered on that is even more fiction consisting of a set of “events” that never happened at all, but is superimposed over the real events of two weeks in June 1972.

HIDDEN COMMUNICATIONS

The entire Intelligence Cult relies almost exclusively on hidden communications. This introduction has dealt with only a small facet of this, one used to manufacture fictions in secret for public performance and dissemination. A more deadly facet is that wherever such vermin are at work in the walls, the real-universe truth of what is being done, and what has been done, lies only hidden inside heavily fortified communications and filing systems exclusive to the Intelligence Cult.

For decades their carte noir wall of secrecy has been “national security.” The National Security Act of 1947 and its allied counterparts created the largest and most powerful organization of unprincipled criminals the world has ever known, and gave them an almost unlimited budget and almost unlimited control over world affairs. The act almost unquestionably was an act of social suicide for the civilizations of man, and the slow-acting but deadly poison still races today through the most vital organs of civilization. It has almost done its job.

If no antidote is administered soon, the world as we know it is likely to die by its own hand.

SUMMARY

As stated in the opening paragraph, this is merely an outline of some of the more deadly techniques used by CIA and its murderous sisters in its black ops against mankind. These techniques are not relegated to historical frauds like the Pentagon Papers and Watergate: the daily news you’re getting right this instant is filled with these same black ops.

This is the snake consuming itself, and it has no conscience or compunctions about consuming every last one of us in the process.

AUTHOR ADDENDUM: THE “NO-SEE-UM” PSYOP

In the published version of Watergate: The Hoax, the text refers repeatedly to another specific type of CIA psyop that I colloquially called, in the body of the book, a “no-see-um.” It technically fits under categories above, such as “Hidden Communications;” “Falsehoods and Omissions,” or “‘History by Manufactured Confession,” but it rightfully deserves its own detailed mention, and the editors have been kind enough to let me add it here.

As the name implies, the psyop refers to items of “evidence” that are discussed by perps as though they exist—or once existed—yet are never produced in the real world. There can be countless excuses or “reasons why” the item or items are not physically in evidence or available for inspection. Just a few examples from the book are, e.g.: an “envelope” full of “documents” supposedly “delivered” to a building guard—but that no one ever saw; an “alarm” on a door that never existed, but supposedly was “key” to a failed “break-in” attempt that never happened; electronic “bugs” supposedly planted in a office, but that never existed at all.

All of the CIA psyops are vicious destroyers of truth, and are vicious booby-traps for investigators and triers-of-fact trying to get to the truth. This one, the “No-See-Um,” may be the most deadly of all. The literature of “Watergate” is filled with such no-see-ums—utterly non-existent “things” that are discussed by supposedly rational and professional people just as those these invisible things ever existed. It may as well be a discussion of unicorns or gorgons.

That’s exactly why the unofficial motto of my book, repeated many times throughout, is: “Fiction doesn’t leave a paper trail.”

Because I point out so many “no-see-ums” in the body of the book, I didn’t think it necessary to add this specific category to this appendix at the time of publication. I now see that as an oversight—my own “no-see-um” perhaps—and I am grateful for this opportunity to correct it.

There Were No “Bugs” in DNC Headquarters at the Watergate

Friday, 27 October 2017 by

This is an excerpt from the book  Watergate: The Hoax, by Ashton Gray, now on sale at AmazoniBooks, Barnes & Noble, and other fine book retailers. This is taken from the last section of Chapter 3, “Invisible Bugs”:

“Watergate” was a hoax perpetrated by operatives of the CIA, and there never were any bugs planted at all. Far left: CIA veteran E. Howard Hunt. Middle photos, top left to bottom right: CIA veteran James McCord; CIA veteran Bernard Barker; FBI veteran working for CIA, taking orders from James McCord, Alfred Baldwin; CIA veteran Eugenio Martinez; CIA veteran Frank Sturgis; CIA veteran Virgilio Gonzales. Far right: G. Gordon Liddy, on “special clearances” from CIA.

Everything that can be counted does not necessarily count;
everything that counts cannot necessarily be counted.
—Albert Einstein

THERE WERE NO BUGS IN DNC HEADQUARTERS IN THE WATERGATE

The infamous bugs never existed, period. The entire grotesque, nightmarish, Byzantine world of Watergate was built on the existence of these bugs, the way the world we live on—according to some creation myths—is supposed to be supported on the back of a mud turtle. The difference is that the mud turtle has more substance; the Watergate bugs are pure fiction. Watergate stands on thin air.

This isn’t some wild allegation. In fact, it is the only independently verified evidence in the entire width and breadth of everything ever published about Watergate, including the findings of the various Congressional committees that bird-dogged the matter, and it was independently verified not once, but twice.

It first was independently verified by Earl Connor, Chief of Security of the Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Company, along with his assistant, who had installed the telephone system in DNC Headquarters.

Connor and his assistant had been called in after five men were arrested at 2:30 a.m. on Saturday morning, 17 June 1972, inside those DNC offices in the Watergate: James McCord, Bernard Barker, Eugenio Martinez, Virgilio Gonzales, and Frank Sturgis. That arrest would become known—fraudulently—as the “second break-in.”

That brings us slam up against perhaps the most vicious “twosie” in Watergate: not one, but two purported break-ins at DNC headquarters—except one of them actually happened and the other is fiction. That is what makes it such a vicious, deadly pit of confusion. To climb out of that pit, it helps to run the newsreel backward, as a reverse- action timeline:

Saturday, 17 June 1972, 2:30 a.m.
James McCord, Bernard Barker, Eugenio Martinez, Virgilio Gonzales, and Frank Sturgis are arrested inside DNC headquarters, having broken in. James McCord has carefully set things up so the break-in will be “discovered” while they are inside. He is carrying pieces of “bugging” equipment—which in fact are only props for the hoax. This is called the “second break-in,” which is a lie, because it is the only break-in that actually happened. [See “Part VII: The Break-In That Was and Aftermath.” —Ed.] The men arrested later would “confess” that the reason they had broken in at the Watergate was to “fix” a problem with bugs they claimed they had planted several weeks earlier, during a “first break-in” (which never happened) over Memorial Day weekend, on 28 May 1972.

Sunday, 28 May 1972, just before or just after midnight
Date of the mythological “first break-in” of DNC headquarters in the Watergate—which never happened. This supposedly is when James McCord planted two telephone bugs inside DNC headquarters that Alfred Baldwin claims he was “monitoring”—which, as already proven, was impossible—from shortly after this date until the purported “second break-in.” According to later “confessions” by the hoaxers, it took them three different tries on three different nights of Memorial Day weekend, with two “failed” attempts (yet another “twosie”) on the nights of Friday, 26 May and Saturday, 27 May 1972. [See “Part II: The Break-In That Never Was.” —Ed.]

Back to real time: On the day of the arrests, Saturday, 17 June 1972, Earl Connor from Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Company and his assistant came in and, according to the FBI, began “a security survey of the telephone and communications equipment” in the DNC offices.” Their survey continued into the next day, Sunday, 18 June 1972. The purpose of the security survey, the FBI report said, was “to physically examine all telephone installations and telephone equipment on the sixth floor space at DNCH [Democratic National Committee Headquarters] for wiretap devices.”

They found none.

There were no bugs.

Cheesy electronic “bugging” devices like this one pictured were carefully planted by the CIA perpetrators as “evidence” to incriminate the Nixon administration, but were nothing more than theatrical props. No actual bugs were planted in DNC headquarters.

Connor and his assistant had been called in because one of the Watergate suspects, “former” CIA agent James McCord, had in his possession when he was arrested several kinds of electronic bugging items. Nobody knew at the time why he had the equipment with him, and McCord wasn’t talking to the police. Police and FBI couldn’t even figure out whether the men were there to plant bugs or remove them. The correct answer was “neither.” The electronic equipment that McCord was carrying was nothing but a set of theatrical props, but Connor and his assistant were put on the job of finding out if any bugs had been planted by the burglars.

Connor reported to the FBI that “all available telephones were checked.” There were no bugs. His survey of the equipment included “taking the telephones physically apart for visual inspection for foreign items and none were found.”

There were no bugs.

The second time it was independently verified was 11 days later, with another two-day security survey of DNC Headquarters, this time by “technically trained agents of the FBI Laboratory.” Their survey began on Thursday, 29 June and ended on Friday, 30 June 1972.

The results were negative. No “electronic surveillance equipment” was found. There were no bugs in DNC headquarters. Period.

This bears repeating. It almost couldn’t be repeated too often: two separate security surveys conducted at relevant times by technically trained personnel, first from C & P Telephone Company, then from the FBI Laboratory, found that there were no electronic bugs on any of the phones or anywhere else in DNC headquarters at the Watergate.

To put this another way, the only independently verified evidence that exists in all of Watergate is of something that isn’t, and never was at any relevant time: bugs, wiretaps, phone taps, electronic listening devices inside DNC Headquarters. There were none. They are the invisible bugs.

Inevitably, those invisible bugs produced the only thing they could produce: Alfred Baldwin’s invisible wiretap logs.

Chapter 4, “Alfred Baldwin’s Invisible Wiretap Logs,” is more incontrovertible proof that Watergate was nothing but a fraud, a hoax, perpetrated on the American people, on a sitting President of the United States, on Congress,  and on the world by the CIA, using phony lying “confessions” by mercenary CIA veterans to cover up a CIA operation than was far dirtier than anything the world ever was allowed to find out about. Until now. That’s why reviewers are calling Ashton Gray’s Watergate: The Hoax “a forensic tour de force,” “magisterial,” “brilliant,” “stunning,” and “monumental.” Buy it today. Read it today. Tell the world.

Excerpt, Chapter 19 “Tangier, Morocco: The Real Watergate”

Tuesday, 26 July 2016 by

Watergate-Hoax-5a-CHANGE-Kindle-Smashwords-EYEFIX-FINAL72

This is an excerpt from the book Watergate: The Hoax, by Ashton Gray, now on sale at AmazoniBooks, Barnes & Noble, and other fine book retailers. This is Chapter 19, “Tangier, Morocco: The Real Watergate”:

“Watergate” is a code word.
William E. Colby, Director of Central Intelligence

The CIA . . . they’re supposed to tell the embassy everything.
Stuart W. Rockwell, alleged diplomat, “Appeaser of Islam”

If a title could be given to Stuart W. Rockwell to summate his career, it should be “Appeaser of Islam.” At the time the Sea Org arrived at the island of Corfu, Greece, in August 1968, Rockwell was the US State Department’s Deputy Assistant Secretary, Near East Affairs. The Near East Affairs desk covered Greece, Turkey, Cyprus, and Iran, so Rockwell was heavily vested in Greek affairs.

Across the Potomac from the State Department, at CIA Langley headquarters, E. Howard Hunt was in charge of dirty deeds in Europe as Chief of European Covert Operations. The CIA’s European Division included Greece and Turkey, so Hunt and Rockwell were joined at the hip in facing this new development of Hubbard having turned up at Corfu with his fleet of ships.

As part of the “special relationship,” Hunt and Rockwell had another roach-in-a-suit scurrying around on the island, his antennae almost tied in a knot with self-important prejudice and loquacious loathing of Hubbard and the arriving Scientologists. His name was Major John Forte, and playing quietly was not his forte. He supposedly was the “honorary British vice-consul” on Corfu—whatever that meant—and he soon reported to Britain’s Foreign Office the arrival of “the “sinister Scientology ship.”

In late August or early September 1968 (sources differ), the British Home Office sent Forte strutting pompously off on an errand to the Royal Scotman to hand-deliver a message to L. Ron Hubbard that Hubbard was persona non grata in England. What this had to do with Hubbard being in Greece is a roach-mind sort of conundrum, so don’t try to make sense of it, but there is no doubt that the Home Office was jerking on the ends of strings being pulled by MI6, causing Forte to jerk on the end of his strings, and so go to the ship to be a jerk. That, it seems, was his forte.

It did him no good. He had to hand over the letter to the ship’s supercargo, who met him at the gangplank, and weeks later Forte got a response saying that Mr. Hubbard was away on an excursion and not on the ship.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, CIA psychiatrist Max Fink was Professor of Psychiatry at New York Medical College, and was busy setting up the first electroshock facilities there. Fink had been given a grant by the National Institute of Mental Health for funds “to compare unilateral vs. bilateral” electric jolts to people’s brains, “as well as multiple treatments in one session vs. single treatments in a series.” Oh, those crazy fun shrinks, calling shuddering electric jolts “treatments.” Fink also was heavily involved in CIA drug experiments on unwitting patients at the time, which included:

A. Fenfluramine
B. Cyclazocine
C. Doxepin
D. Recent Experimental Compounds
1. GPA 41299, S 42548, CP 14368
2. Other presumed psychoactive compounds
3. Drugs of abuse—opiates and cannabis

There’s no record of whether Fink was delivering volts and jolts of electricity to his drug experiment subjects, too, but evidence in the records that are available from MK-ULTRA makes it a high likelihood.

Also in September 1968, a man named Jim Dincalci “started training in psychology in graduate school at New York Medical College,” which is where Fink was setting up his shock machines. Dincalci reportedly was pursuing a graduate degree in nursing. (Dincalci later will be one of only two people who supposedly is with L. Ron Hubbard when Hubbard disappears from Tangier, Morocco, in 1972.)

Meanwhile, back in Corfu, Scientology students kept arriving from Saint Hill and other locations around the globe for something, and on 24 September 1968, Hubbard upped the ante. Again. Onboard the Royal Scotman (probably still chuckling about Forte) he gave the first lecture to students of the new Class VIII Auditor Course. The lectures were highly confidential and dealt with the most advanced technology related to the OT levels. The CIA and the Five Eyes were left on the outside trying to look in. Again.

The next day, 25 September, a woman named Kima Churchill from Rhodesia, who had training as a nurse, joined the Sea Org. (She later will become Kima Douglas, and will be central to the disappearance of Hubbard and its long-running cover-up.)

Within a month, on 15 October 1968, the last Class VIII Course lecture was delivered, and two days later, on 17 October, “all 35 new Class VIII’s were returned to their respective orgs,” taking this new high-level technology to Scientology organizations all around the world.

By 3 November 1968, Hubbard had collected more evidence that the source of attacks on him and Scientology were being orchestrated by the National Association of Mental Health and the World Federation of Mental Health—and those, of course, were connected through the CIA and Five Eyes to the Operation Mockingbird mouthpieces. The WFMH had held its 20th annual convention in London starting on 5 August that year, and Hubbard’s view was that the various groups associated with it were in league to keep up a relentless attack because of the threat Scientology posed to countless billions of dollars in revenues for psychiatrists seeking to impose control over the minds of men, while the goal of Scientology was for humankind to become freer and more self- determined.

It’s almost as though Hubbard had been peering into a crystal ball; less than two weeks later, one of the preferred prostitutes of Operation Mockingbird, Life magazine, hit the streets on 15 November 1968 with hatred so caustic that it rivaled the sarcasm from THE REAL DEEP THROAT, practically dripping holes through the pages. The headlines were supermarket tabloid material, as usual:

“Scientology: A dangerous method of mind-probing attracts a large cult. A true life nightmare. A growing cult reaches dangerously into the mind—SCIENTOLOGY.”

It is a remarkable irony that Amos Jessup—the son of John Jessup, one of the high-level executives of Henry Luce’s Time/Life conglomerate—was at that moment a high-level executive of the Sea Org, having been made Captain of the Avon River. (Jessup will later be indispensable to the cover-up of Hubbard’s disappearance from Tangier, Morocco.)

It must have been frustrating indeed for the CIA to learn that the very next night after the Life article, on 16 November, L. Ron Hubbard was treated almost like royalty on the island of Corfu:

Local traders unashamedly welcomed the estimated $50,000 the Sea Org was spending in Corfu every month, and on 16 November, Hubbard was invited to a reception in his honor at the Achilleion Palace, a lavish casino on the island. . . . He was accorded a standing ovation as he entered the palace.

He wrote up his impression of the event the following day in the tear-sheet that came out daily on the flagship, called the “Orders of the Day” (OODs):

The dinner for Corfu VIPs went off like clockwork with Mr. Steinhauser of the Achilleion Casino as host and the top Corfu people there.

The only slight mar was a London Sunday Times reporter [Alexander Mitchell]. Earlier the local British Consul [Major John Forte] tried to push him into the party, offending the Corfu VIPs. He got a table nearby and bobbed up to introduce himself and again much offended the VIPs. The host confided he had already confiscated the man’s camera. These Corfu people work very hard to protect us. We are grateful that they do.

The dinner itself was excellent and in a very pleasant atmosphere, a large number of VIPs, good music.

That same day, 17 November 1968, the Sea Org pulled off another PR coup with the same Corfu VIPs, holding a christening ceremony to rename the Royal Scotman as the Apollo. The other two ships also were renamed, making all three of them named in honor of gods and goddesses from the Greek pantheon, with the Enchanter becoming the Diana, and the Avon River being renamed the Athena.

If all that approbation weren’t cause enough for alarming the hounding spooks and the psycho-establishment, on the same day as the christening an article appeared in the London Sunday Times—by Alexander Mitchell, that reporter who had been trying to get his nose under the tent at the VIP dinner—saying that Hubbard was “negotiating with local businessmen to buy the Delphinia Hotel in the remote south” of Corfu to “give him a land base.”

Then there was a weird turn of events—and “weird” is an infinitely expanding concept when dealing with the dispassionate facts of Watergate, the hoax. Bob “Blowtorch” Komer, a CIA veteran and personal friend of Daniel Ellsberg, was suddenly pulled from where he had been stationed in Vietnam and was named on 24 October 1968 as a “non-career appointee” to be US Ambassador to Turkey. That put a perfect triumvirate of hellions hovering over Hubbard and the ships of the Sea Org: E. Howard Hunt over Greece and Turkey for CIA, Stuart W. Rockwell over Greece and Turkey at State, and Bob “Blowtorch” Komer for State at the embassy in Turkey.

Why Turkey? It’s no accident that Komer was put there. There were strong rumors afloat (pun unavoidable) that Hubbard was considering establishing a Scientology organization on land at Corfu, which would provide Scientology with a foothold on Greece. Given the downright alarming rate at which Scientology was expanding around the world (alarming to its enemies), nothing could have been more infuriating or terrifying—or both—to the leaders of Islam. No matter what “modernization” had been established in Turkey by Ataturk, Turkey has been of central, almost consuming interest to the real Muslims, the true Muslims, the fundamentalist Muslims, since the fall of the Ottoman Empire.

As recently as August 2014, a leading magpie of the Muslim Brotherhood, Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, declared in a video speech: “We came to Turkey to assess the Fourth Assembly of the Union of Muslim Scholars in Istanbul, capital of the Islamic Caliphate! . . . Turkey is the Caliphate State, and Istanbul is its capital . . . Turkey unites religion and the world, Arab (Wahhabist Sunnis) and Persian (Shiites), Asia and Africa, and it (the Caliphate) should be based upon this nation (Turkey).”

Even The Washington Post has opined that “many wonder whether the secularism embedded into Turkey by Ataturk is fading.” Some—those who actually understand the unyielding mandates of Islam for world domination—reasonably wonder whether the purported “secularism” ever really was otherwise than faded, especially given the fact that Turkey is over 98 percent Muslim.

In 1968, the flames of desire for the revival of the Caliphate were merely suppressed into embers, not extinguished, and are being fanned back to life at the time of this publication. Turkey, bordered by Iran, Iraq, and Syria to the east, and Greece to the west, is strategically vital to the Caliphate ever being able to overrun Europe in its quest for complete domination over the world. In fact, the fervor for a Caliphate may never have been higher than in late 1968, in the wake of the 1967 Six Day War with Israel. By the time the Sea Org ships had settled into the Corfu harbor, 57 Islamic states already were beginning the process of forming the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, which describes itself as “the collective voice of the Muslim world.” That organization holds Islamic Sharia law as superior to all human and civil rights, superior to all “man-made” law (never mind where Sharia came from), superior to every non-Islamic constitution in the world—including the Constitution of the United States.

The very word “Islam” means “submission.”

Scientology advocates one and only one survival course for Man: greater freedom. Scientology is anathema to Islam. Never doubt it for a moment.

Scientology and Islam do not mix, and never will.

Scientology could not be allowed to establish a base in Greece, and it’s a sure bet that the oil-rich Islamic nations were using all their influence on Turkey to deliver that message to the CIA and the Five Eyes, loud and long.

Komer had to be brought in by the CIA to pour banana oil on the troubled waters in Turkey and set up a holding action until Hubbard and the Sea Org could be driven out of Greece. Stuart “Appeaser of Islam” Rockwell unquestionably was brought in on the CIA’s plans for Hubbard, and used all his influence to make that happen. (Komer will only be in place as US Ambassador to Turkey for a few months, until shortly after Hubbard and the Sea Org are run out of Greece. Rockwell soon will tail Hubbard and the Sea Org to Morocco, getting posted there as US Ambassador in Rabat, and will be in that position when Hubbard disappears from Tangier in 1972.)

But the plan to drive out the Sea Org wasn’t going well. The damned Scientologists were much too popular.

CIA Eagle Outline Art-4
CALL IN THE US NAVY
On 11 December 1968, L. Ron Hubbard upped the ante. Again. In the Apollo OODs of that date he made an announcement to the Sea Org members:

OT VII has been researched by me. I have not written it up.

I have almost finished OT VIII.

I was sort of waiting until I’d done the whole of VIII before I wrote up VII. VII could be written up almost any time.

Of course, the roster of Sea Org members by that time included infiltrators that had been sent in by the Five Eyes. The news was soon racing around the world to the chief spooks.

Around the same time as his announcement, a new issue of the American Medical Association’s magazine Today’s Health started arriving to subscribers. In it was an article called “Scientology, Menace to Mental Health.” Somehow, the AMA had managed to get some hack to rewrite the same tired old “dangerous cult” story that had been being written and rewritten by the psycho-establishment and Operation Mockingbird since 1950. In what must have been merely an oversight, the article didn’t mention that at that very moment “Dr.” Max Fink was shooting household electrical current through the brains of unwitting and unwilling patients, or that “Dr.” Ewen Cameron had been subjecting people to the endless horrors of “psychic driving,” all being paid for by taxpayer dollars, all in institutions fully blessed and sanctified by the AMA, all in collusion with the CIA.

On or about 20 December 1968, CIA Director Richard Helms traveled to Paris, ostensibly on a honeymoon, but while he was there he met with longtime superspook Vernon Walters. (Within a few years Walters will become Helms’s deputy during Watergate, the hoax, and the disappearance of Hubbard from Morocco.)

Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, on Christmas Day 1968, Daniel Ellsberg flew to New York City from DC, where he met at the Pierre Hotel with Henry Kissinger, who Ellsberg describes as “the long-time protégé and adviser of Nelson Rockefeller.” Indeed. (Another protégé of Nelson Rockefeller had been Douglas “Ragtop” Caddy, who later will appear “gratuitously” to be the first attorney for the Watergate “burglars” in DC.) Ellsberg had meetings with Kissinger over the next three days.

Shortly thereafter, around the turn of the New Year of 1969, the CIA started paying a man named Eugenio Rolando Martinez y Creaga, a.k.a. Rolando Martinez, a monthly retainer. (Martinez will be a key player in Watergate, the hoax.)

Around the same time, a man named William J. Galbraith—who has been named in some sources as CIA—was assigned to Morocco. (He will soon be involved in an incident with the Sea Org in Morocco, after a curious visit to the White House in the beginning stages of Watergate, the hoax.)

Meanwhile, back in Corfu, there had been rumblings about some action to be taken against the Scientologists—all of it stirred up by the raving roach, Major John Forte. On 20 January 1969, four Greek commercial associations sent a letter to the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister of Greece, attempting to put a stop to any such action:

Dated 20 January 1969

To their Excellencies, Prime Minister G. Papadopoulos and Deputy Minister S. Pattakos, Athens.

For many months there lies anchored in Corfu Harbour a ship named “Apollo” on which functions Professor Hubbard’s Philosophy School. So far this school has never given cause for any misunderstandings but on the contrary it spends considerable sums to buy supplies from the local market. These sums so spent give considerable boost to the anaemic Corfu market. We now learn that various persons entirely foreign to Corfu are trying to persuade the Government to cancel the permit given to the vessel to remain without giving any specific reasons against the school.

Since as far as we know nothing suspicious exists against this school and since it is not permissible for foreigners to run our homes we submit to you our warmest plea to disregard these efforts of said foreigners and to allow the vessel to remain in Corfu. This school possessing serious capital and an extensive net of branches abroad plans to get established in Corfu permanently and Corfu tourism would profit greatly.

(Signed)

Manufacturers and Merchants Society, Gerondicos Traders Union, Hondroyannis
Labour Centre, Gynargeros
Shopkeepers Society, Moutsos

The letter did its job. Days later, Yannis Lagonikas, Secretary-General of the Ministry of Mercantile Marine, telegraphed a reply:

In reply to the organisations’ telegram addressed to the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister, we have the honour to inform you that from the part of the Ministry of Merchant Marine there was never any objection for SS “Apollo” remaining in Corfu. (Signed) I. Lagonikas, Secretary General Ministry Merchant Marine.

It was going to take some big guns to change this situation, and it couldn’t wait; Hubbard was going full steam ahead with his plans to set up an organization on Corfu, and it was going to include an Advanced Org, delivering the OT levels. It’s little wonder, then, that on 11 February 1969, the Secretary of State sent a memorandum to the newly elected incoming President of the United States, Richard Nixon, entitled “Steps to Emphasize US Interest in, and Friendship for, Turkey.” Not one word was said specifically about Scientology being next door to Turkey, in Greece, but the document had been “cleared by Rockwell,” and in diplomat-speak conveyed a sense of urgency about mollifying and appeasing Turkish interests.

At the same time, high-level negotiations were going on with another Islamic force, King Hassan II of Morocco. He put forward a false front of being progressively modern, but history has revealed that he was a narcissistic despot given to psycho-establishment torture and executions for people he saw as enemies. He had long been in bed with the CIA, and had even had them help him set up his torture facilities with electroshock machines, but he was always threatening to cozy up to communists if the US didn’t meet his ever-escalating demands for handouts. He well knew the strategic position of Tangier, Morocco, as “the gateway to the Mediterranean,” and the high value placed on it by the international superpowers. On 17 February, a week after the Turkey appeasement suggestion from Rockwell to Nixon, another State Department missive came from the American Embassy in Rabat, Morocco: “US Policy Assessment for Morocco.” It was full of barely veiled threats as delivered from Hassan, e.g.:

Soviet influence has grown rapidly. . . .

US and Western economic and military aid have not been fully responsive to these concerns. . . .

Arab-Israel confrontation generates pressures on King Hassan . . . to align Morocco with Arab extremists. . . .

USSR is prepared to help King economically. . . .

Strategic importance and economic potential of Morocco warrant special effort to blunt Soviet drive. . . .

It wasn’t even subtle. Then it ended with the bottom line extortion demand from Hassan II, couched in “diplomatic” terms: “Provision of grant military assistance amounting to $57 million over next five years.” That works out to over $377 million in 2015 dollars.

Somebody was asking Hassan II to do something for which he was demanding a high price.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, Jim Dincalci withdrew the next day, 18 February 1969, from the New York Medical College Graduate School of Nursing—the school where CIA shock doctor Max Fink was conducting MK-ULTRA experiments. No reason is apparent for Dincalci’s withdrawal from the program. (Dincalci soon will join the Sea Org in Morocco, and will be involved in the disappearance of L. Ron Hubbard.)

Meanwhile, back in Corfu: The next day, 19 February, the London Times reported that Hubbard had set up “a limited company in Greece to carry on his enterprises,” but that “Foreign Minister Pipinelis had told a press conference that the government was examining their activities before deciding on their request to be allowed to set up offices on Greek soil.”

A local paper announced that students soon would be arriving from around the world. The Sea Org already had buildings purchased and were preparing them for setting up an Advanced Org to deliver the Clearing Course and OT Levels, and a Saint Hill organization to deliver the Saint Hill Special Briefing Course, which used all the recorded lectures Hubbard had given at Saint Hill in England. On 26 February, LRH wrote in the Apollo OODs, “We are now waiting for AO [Advanced Org] Greece customers which should be showing up . . . We won’t be here forever. When AO Greece is well established, we’ll be taking a cruise.”

They would be taking a cruise sooner than that; two ships from the Sixth Fleet of the US Navy were already en route through the Mediterranean to Corfu.

Meanwhile, back in the United States, attorney G. Gordon Liddy was making a deal in early March with Gerald Ford, House Minority Leader, for a favor. Liddy wanted to be hired into the Treasury Department, specifically into the position of Special Assistant to the Secretary of the Treasury, for Enforcement. That would put Liddy in the Executive Branch of the government, in a prime position to move him into the White House. Ford pulled some strings and made it happen. (Ford, who had served on the Warren Commission investigation into the assassination of John F. Kennedy, will go on to replace Richard Nixon after Watergate, the hoax, and will know about the CIA’s theft of the Scientology OT levels to start its “remote viewing” program.)

Around the same time, on 4 March 1969, Daniel Ellsberg was “sworn in at the Rand Washington office as a top secret courier.” He was given “two big packages of double-wrapped volumes” that filled “two large briefcases—courier pouches, with flaps and combination locks.” This was the McNamara study that will become the “Pentagon Papers.” Rand president Harry Rowen (a.k.a. Henry Rowen, Henry S. Rowen) told Ellsberg on the phone that when he got back to Santa Monica, he was to put the study in his own safe, and that no one, including the security officers at Rand, were to be allowed to know that the study is there. Ri-i-i-i-ght.

Two days later, on Thursday, 6 March 1969, two ships of the US Sixth Fleet arrived in Corfu: the Fremont and the Grand County.

A task force arrived off Corfu and a detachment of Marines set up sentry posts around the berths occupied by the Sea Org ships, apparently in order to prevent US Navy personnel from coming into contact with Scientologists. “Somehow it seemed,” said Major Forte, “that this was a carefully planned operation designed to bring forcibly home to the authorities the grave danger of contamination by this undesirable cult.”

Gee, you think? The men on the ships had been “briefed” that the Sea Org ships were “full of draft dodgers, marijuana smokers, free love, hypnotism.”

Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, on the same day that the Navy ships arrived in Corfu, a man named Robert Cushman was nominated as Deputy Director of the CIA, to serve directly with Richard Helms. In 1950, Cushman had shared an office in the CIA with E. Howard Hunt. Cushman and Hunt also had worked together in 1960, when Cushman had been Nixon’s “military aide” in a plot to overthrow Castro, and when Vernon Walters also was an aide to Nixon, as an interpreter. (Cushman soon will supply Hunt and Liddy with everything they need to carry out the first operation in Watergate, the hoax, and to set up a “get out of jail free” card for Ellsberg. Cushman then will be replaced by Vernon Walters as Deputy Director of the CIA for the rest of the hoax operations, when L. Ron Hubbard disappears.)

It was all being set into motion.

On 18 March 1969, the Nomarch of Corfu issued an order that L. Ron Hubbard and the Sea Org had 24 hours to leave Greece.

On the same day, “Hana Eltringham321 and 13 other Sea Org members left the Apollo and arrived at AOLA [Advanced Org Los Angeles], with the mission to effectively replace the top administrative personnel of the org.” (Eltringham, one of the Commonwealth infiltrators, will be the Commanding Officer of AOLA at crucial times over the next few years, allowing both Ingo Swann and Hal Puthoff to slip past Hubbard’s emphatic injunctions forbidding the upper levels to intelligence operatives. She later will leave Scientology and become one of the main harpies spewing venom about it, a favored “source” for Hubbard-haters Russell Miller and the admitted British intelligence operative Chris Owen.)

The next day, 19 March, the Sea Org ships left Corfu.

The CIA, the prissy little Forte roach, the Five Eyes, and the Islamic Cult of the Caliphate fanatics must have felt a great sense of conquest, having shut down Hubbard’s attempt to set up a new Advanced Org (AO) and new Saint Hill (SH) org. As usual, though, they forgot who they were dealing with; two days later an announcement went out in Greece and around the world:

WE ARE NOT OPENING THE NEW AO – SH IN GREECE BUT IN DENMARK

THE WHOLE NEW ORGANIZATION IS ALREADY TRANSFERRED TO COPENHAGEN, DENMARK SO

GO NOW DIRECT TO

SCIENTOLOGY ORGANIZATION

DENMARK HOVEDVAGTSGADE 6 1103 COPENHAGEN TELEX: 20515075

After a trip through the Mediterranean and brief stops at Cagliari, Sardinia, and Cadiz, Spain, for fuel and supplies, The Sea Org ships sailed to the real Watergate, long known as “the gateway to the Mediterranean”: Tangier, Morocco.

Excerpt: Chapter 27, “1971: The Fielding Farce”

Tuesday, 26 July 2016 by

This is an excerpt from the book Watergate: The Hoax, by Ashton Gray, now on sale at AmazoniBooks, Barnes & Noble, and other retailers. This is Chapter 27, “1971: The Fielding Farce”:

Left Panel, top to bottom: CIA veteran Filipe de Diego (no known photo); CIA veteran Eugenio Martinez; CIA veteran Bernard Barker. Center panel: “Saint” Daniel Ellsberg, phony “opponent” of the Deep State, had “above Top Secret” clearances and helped mastermind the “Watergate” fraud. Right panel, top to bottom: CIA MK-Ultra psychiatrist Lewis “Gollum” Fielding, purportedly Ellsberg’s psychiatrist; FBI veteran G. Gordon Liddy, on “special clearances” from CIA; CIA founding veteran E. Howard Hunt, a hack spy fiction writer who helped Ellsberg architect the CIA hoax known as “Watergate.”

The files in my cabinet were in considerable disarray. My personal papers, including those pertaining to Dr. Ellsberg, appeared to have been thoroughly rummaged through.
CIA-Blessed Psychiatrist Lewis Fielding

We had gone to a lot of effort and taken a number of risks—for nothing. All we had established was that Ellsberg’s file was not in Fielding’s office. Where was it, then?
E. Howard Hunt

Arguably, the most deadly, mind-scrambling combination of CIA psyops in Watergate, the hoax, is embodied in the events of the night of 3 September 1971, going into the wee hours of 4 September, when E. Howard Hunt and G. Gordon Liddy supposedly masterminded and oversaw a “break-in” at the Beverly Hills office of Lewis Fielding— former psychiatrist to Daniel Ellsberg—utilizing three of the “Cuban Contingent” from Miami to do the dirty work: Bernard Barker, Eugenio Martinez, and Felipe de Diego. Martinez was actually still on the CIA’s payroll at the time, but the other two also were working for the CIA, just through some other “arrangement.”

There was, indeed, a “break-in” of sorts of Lewis Fielding’s office, and the Cubans took pains to make sure there was no mistaking the fact of a break-in, including breaking a window, using a crowbar on the office door and file cabinets, and scattering pills around the office to make it look like a search for drugs, but the entire “operation” was never anything other than a fraud and a farce. It never had anything at all to do with “finding” any psychiatric file on Ellsberg, as the perps claimed. It had two primary purposes:

1. Give Daniel Ellsberg a guaranteed “get out of jail free” card, and,
2. Create as much confusion as possible in relation to the later Watergate operations.

It was a masterpiece of psychological warfare, using no fewer than six CIA psyops. [See Appendix III: “The CIA Psyops of Watergate and Beyond.” —Ed.] It was so effective that up to the very moment when this manuscript is being prepared, not one single investigator, reporter, author, or trier of fact ever has exposed it for the abominable fiction it is—fiction almost certainly authored by E. Howard Hunt—even though the evidence of it being a fraud has been lying in plain sight for almost half a century, and is inarguable. The headings of some of the CIA psyops that were used help to analyze it for the farce it is:

CIA Eagle Outline Art-4
CONTRADICTIONS TO CREATE CONFUSION, AND CONTRADICTION BY MULTIPLE SOURCES: THE COMMONALITIES

The “accounts” by different participants of the break-in at the Fielding office have certain scripted commonalities, but are irreconcilably contradictory on the single most important “fact” in this insane fiction: Did the perps find Ellsberg’s files in Fielding’s office or didn’t they? Here is how some of the perps and the “victims” told it—in different places, and at different times—to create the maximum possible mind-numbing confusion. First, here is the CIA psycho-establishment mouthpiece Lewis “Gollum” Fielding saying (under oath in both cases) that Ellsberg’s files were in his office during the break-in, and had been compromised:

Lewis Fielding in affidavit:
I drove down to the office . . . and found my papers and records strewn about. The files in my cabinet were in considerable disarray. My personal papers, including those pertaining to Dr. Ellsberg, appeared to have been thoroughly rummaged through.

Lewis Fielding in grand jury testimony:
Questioner: Now, would it be possible to look at the Ellsberg-1 envelope that you previously described in the drawer to determine whether it had been opened? . . . [Was there] no way to look at the papers themselves to see if there had been an actual intrusion and removal and then perhaps being put back?
Fielding: Oh, yes, there was, because these papers, as I found them, were outside the envelope. I know that I had left them inside the envelope. Beyond that, there was evidence that these papers— You know, again, if you have been with a file long enough and lived with it, you know what your papers look like. And this looked as if it had been fingered, had been fingered over, you know, people had done something with it, you know.

Then comes one of the “masterminds” of the break-in G. Gordon Liddy, to contradict the shrink:

G. Gordon Liddy in sworn testimony:
On the 3rd of September 1971, we—that is the group, using Cuban expatriates who had been trained and had been in the service of the Central Intelligence Agency—penetrated the office of Dr. Fielding, and they looked for those records. They were not there.

G. Gordon Liddy in autobiography Will:
Hunt arrived first [at the hotel room], and by the time I got there he was cooling a bottle of champagne. The Cubans arrived next. Barker spoke for them. . . . What did they find?

“Nothing, Eduardo [code name for Hunt],” said Barker to Hunt. He held up a piece of paper on which I’d written the name “Daniel Ellsberg” . . . “There’s no file with this name on it.”

Hunt was unbelieving. “Are you sure?” he asked. They were.

Hunt had to ask if they were sure that they didn’t find anything. Sure he did. Oh, but the real “victim” has to weigh in himself, Saint Ellsberg, and the saint ain’t so sure:

Daniel Ellsberg:
The plumbers did find my file. . . . In it was a paper I had written for the American Political Science Association called “Quagmire Myth and the Stalemate Machine.” I alluded to classified information I’d seen, which obviously meant the Pentagon report.

Ellsberg told that to Smithsonian Magazine in 2012, and they were gullible enough to print it. Now comes Egil Krogh, who served time for having approved this “break-in”:

Egil Krogh:
Burglars broke into Dr. Fielding’s Beverly Hills office to photograph the files, but found nothing related to Mr. Ellsberg.

Oh, but Felipe de Diego, one of the Cubans who “had been in the service of the Central Intelligence Agency,” chooses to disagree, and after all, he was there:

Felipe de Diego, one of the burglars:
Mr. de Diego . . . did not remember who had found the file, but shortly afterward the search stopped and he helped to hold papers from what appeared to be Dr. Ellsberg’s file while Martinez photographed them.

That’s a little odd, because Eugenio Martinez doesn’t seem to remember photographing Ellsberg’s psychiatric files at all:

Eugenio Martinez, the burglar on CIA payroll at the time, who Diego says photographed Ellsberg’s file:
There was nothing of Ellsberg’s there. There was nothing about psychiatry, not one file of sick people, only bills. It looked like an import-export office more than a psychiatrist’s. The only thing with the name of Ellsberg in it was the doctor’s telephone book.

And now let’s hear from the CIA veteran liar himself, the spy-fiction writing hack who dreamed this miserable pack of lies up, E. Howard Hunt. Notice how similar his commonality “talking points” are to G. Gordon Liddy’s in their autobiographies:

E. Howard Hunt in autobiography Undercover:
I was the first one back to the hotel room, then Liddy came in a few minutes later. . . . The three men from Miami came in together. They were sweaty and disheveled, and one of them had cut himself on broken window glass. We gave each other abrazos [embraces], then Barker said, “Eduardo, there was nothing there.”

I stared at him. “Nothing?”

He shook his head. “We went through every goddamn file in that office, Eduardo, and there was nothing there. Nothing with the name Ellsberg on it.” From his pocket he pulled the scrap of paper on which Liddy had printed the name “Ellsberg” and given it to Barker.

. . . We had gone to a lot of effort and taken a number of risks—for nothing. All we had established was that Ellsberg’s file was not in Fielding’s office.

It’s spy fiction, and if your head isn’t spinning yet, you haven’t been paying attention. But it will spin. This CIA psyops carnival ride has hardly gotten set into motion.

THE PRINCIPLE OF DUPLICATES—“TWOSIES”

The Fielding Fraud is filled with terrible “twosies” that sow seeds producing thick briar-weeds of confusion. Here are the major ones:

• The Fielding Op was on a three-day summer holiday weekend, Labor Day weekend; the Watergate “first break-in” hoax was on a three-day summer holiday weekend, Memorial Day weekend. That alone can start to make you feel spinny and sick at your stomach. It was designed just that way.

• The Fielding Op was an actual break-in—even though Fielding was in on it —but the Watergate “first break-in” was a complete hoax. Then there was a later actual break-in at the Watergate [See Part VII, “The Break-In That Was and Aftermath.” —Ed.], during which the perps were arrested, creating even more confusion. The Fielding Op over a Labor Day weekend was to lend “credibility” to the Watergate phony break-in op over a Memorial Day weekend.

• Both ops used Cubans from Miami, and the three Cubans involved in the Fielding op will be used in the Washington ops—along with some others— creating further confusion.

• Both ops involve the Cubans having “camera equipment” and supposedly taking photographs of documents (except there were no documents to photograph—except there were documents to photograph, depending on which set of lies you listen to).

• All the ops involve the use of walkie-talkies.

• All the ops have Hunt and Liddy as the outside overseers, and in a hotel.

• The name “Fielding” is itself a “twosie,” because John Dean had hired Fred Fielding not long before this op—specifically for the “twosie” value. The psychiatrist Lewis Fielding is styled as a “victim” of E. Howard Hunt; the Dean-hired Fred Fielding later will be involved in the disposal of contents of E. Howard Hunt’s safe in the White House. This welds these “Fielding” names together in an incautious mind in relation to Hunt, creating extreme confusion, especially in texts where only the last name, “Fielding,” is used to refer to either man.

• The name of one of the Cuban perps is Martinez. Although the perps claim, in their versions, that they met and talked with a cleaning woman at Lewis Fielding’s office building early in the evening before the break-in, Lewis Fielding claimed in his affidavit that the cleaning person at his office building who interacted with the perps that evening was a male named—you guessed it: Martinez.

“HISTORY” BY MANUFACTURED CONFESSION

Exactly as with the later Watergate “first break-in” hoax, almost everything about this Fielding break-in covert op comes from manufactured “confessions” told by the perps, and, most importantly, by the CIA-connected psychiatrist Lewis Fielding himself. Although police were called in, and investigated the scene of a “break-in,” it had been staged by the Cubans with the specific intent to make unquestionable record of a “break- in.” When used in conjunction with the photos Liddy and Hunt had made of themselves in front of Lewis Fielding’s office using CIA-supplied “disguises,” camera, and film, that would be vital to spring Ellsberg later from the charges against him for releasing the Pentagon Papers.
CIA Eagle Outline Art-4
PSYCHIATRIST LEWIS FIELDING WAS COMPLICIT IN A CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY

As with everything about Watergate, the hoax, this Fielding Farce is all talk, talk, talk, talk, talk. The one thing this exposé proves for the first time ever, and proves beyond even a faint shadow of reasonable doubt, is that at all relevant times the psycho-establishment’s psychiatrist Lewis J. Fielding was a willing and witting participant in this criminal CIA conspiracy against the United States and its people.

The Lewis Fielding “break-in” story was vicious fiction designed to make fools of the American people and the world. It’s fiction that was written by a hack spy-fiction writer named E. Howard Hunt, who was on the payroll of your tax dollars for decades. In fact, you or one of your family members probably paid, right out of pocket, every one of the professional liars involved in this hoax for the privilege of having them make a fool of you, and of the press, and of Congress, and of the entire world.

If you weren’t paying taxes then, don’t feel bad, you aren’t left out: there are just as many paid professional liars today as there were then, creating the exact same kinds of covert operations on your dime. The CIA is still a pack of professional liars using the money taken right out of your pocket to create elaborate fictions to make a fool of you. But you go right on paying them to do it, don’t you?

Don’t expect a receipt or an accounting of where your money went; fiction doesn’t leave a paper trail.

Excerpt: Chapter 20, “The Nixon Problem”

Sunday, 29 May 2016 by

Watergate-Hoax-5a-CHANGE-Kindle-Smashwords-EYEFIX-FINAL72

This is an excerpt from the book  Watergate: The Hoax, by Ashton Gray, now on sale at Amazon, iBooks, Barnes & Noble, and other fine book retailers. This is Chapter 20, “The Nixon Problem”:

You don’t have Nixon to kick around any more.
Richard Nixon

Out, damned spot! Out, I say!
Shakespeare, Macbeth

Nixon . . . hates us.
L. Ron Hubbard

Before this narrative can proceed, it regrettably has to address Richard Nixon. On 20 January 1969, the same day the Greek commercial associations had sent a letter pleading for the Scientologists to be allowed to stay in Greece, he was sworn into office.

It isn’t that he’s a mere footnote to Watergate, the hoax; he was, after all, the President of the United States, and had more indelible blood stains on his hands than Lady Macbeth. There are no tears shed here for Nixon. He got no worse than he deserved.

That said—with gusto—still, history has been unkind to him on the subject of Watergate. Or perhaps that should say that historians and so-called “journalists” and so-called “authors” have been like teenage girls with a gushing crush on him, attributing to him downright godlike powers of conspiracy. “The Official Story” of Watergate, the one pawned off on the world by Woodward-and-Bernstein and the idiots in Congress (but I repeat myself, apologies to Mark Twain), is the biggest and most downright laughable “conspiracy theory” ever concocted. It posits Nixon as some sort of all-powerful Svengali making his army of mindless automatons do his bidding—apparently through telepathy, because not one scrap of evidence ever has surfaced, anywhere, even slightly linking him to a single order for any of the CIA-connected Watergate thugs to do anything they did.

It seems that somebody, somewhere, should get around to noticing that.

At every moment after the arrests, Nixon looked and sounded like he’d been hit between the eyes with a two-by-four. He was stunned, and from the first instant was trying to play catch-up to the ever-escalating scandal. That’s exactly where Helms had wanted Nixon: trying desperately to figure out what was going on and why, then trying to cover it up because he was informed—after the fact—of what “his people” had been doing. Except the key “his people” were all the CIA’s people, and Nixon was like a stumbling gladiator with arterial bleeding from the first blow. He was going down.

Others can go right on analyzing to death what Nixon did and when and why—but they better do it now with the firm realization that there was no “first-break-in” at all, or they are off wandering in the same swamp as all who have gone before—and never made it out.

The only thing this narrative seeks to do with regard to Nixon is to explore why the CIA had to bring down Nixon at the same time they brought down Hubbard and stole his OT levels. That’s pretty easy to analyze, and doesn’t require any telepathy. It’s spelled out in no uncertain terms by L. Ron Hubbard himself, in a bulletin he wrote on 24 April 1960:[See NOTE below]

CONCERNING THE CAMPAIGN FOR PRESIDENCY

 

A person named Richard M. Nixon will enter his name this Fall at a convention as a citizen aspiring to the Presidency of the United States. Many Scientologists think he is all right because I once quoted him. This is very far from the facts and I hasten to give you the real story why Richard M. Nixon must be prevented at all costs from becoming president.

 

Two years ago in Washington this man’s name appeared in a newspaper article as uttering an opinion about psychology. I called attention to this opinion as a matter of banal interest in an article.

 

Shortly two members of the United States Secret Service, stating they had been sent directly by Nixon, entered the establishment of the Founding Church of Washington, DC, armed with pistols, but without warrant or formal complaint, and with foul and abusive language threatened the girls on duty there.

 

Hulking over desks, shouting violently they stated that they daily had to make such calls on “lots of people” to prevent Nixon’s name from being used in ways Nixon disliked.

 

These two men stated they were part of Nixon’s office and were acting on his express orders. They said that Nixon believed in nothing the Founding Church or Scientology stood for.

 

Their conduct before the ladies present was so intolerable that Mary Sue, having heard the shouting and curses from her office, had to come and force these men to leave, which they finally did, but only after she threatened to call the police.

 

As Scientologists were present, much information was obtained, of course, from these agents as to their routine activities. These were not creditable. Nixon constantly used the service against the voteless and helpless people of Washington to suppress the use of his name.

 

I am informing you of an exact event. It convinced me that in my opinion Nixon is not fitted to be a president. I do not believe any public figure has a right to suppress the use of his name in articles. I do not believe a public figure should enforce his will on writers or organizations by use of the Secret Service. I believe a democracy ceases to exist when deprived of freedom of speech. I do not believe any man closely connected with psychiatry should hold a high public office since psychiatry has lent its violence to political purposes.

 

Would you please write your papers and tell your friends that Nixon did this and that his actions against private people in Washington cause us to defy his cravings to be president.

 

It’s my hope you’ll vote and make your friends vote. But please don’t vote for Nixon. Even his own Secret Service agents assure us he stands for nothing we do.

 

I do not tell you this because Mary Sue came close to serious injury at Nixon’s hands. I tell you this because I think psychiatry and all Fascist-Commie forces have had their day.

 

We want clean hands in public office in the United States. Let’s begin by doggedly denying Nixon the presidency no matter what his Secret Service tries to do to us now in Washington. It is better, far better, for us to run the risk of saying this now, while there’s still a chance, than to fail to tell you of it for fear of reprisals and then be wiped out without defence by the Secret Service or other agency if Nixon became president. He hates us and has used what police force was available to him to say so. So please get busy on it. I am only telling a few friends.

 

L. RON HUBBARD

So never mind whatever Nixon may or may not have known about CIA involvement in the assassination of John F. Kennedy—which he seemed to call “that whole Bay of Pigs thing”—or how fervently he disliked their Ivy League airs, or how psycho he was, or whether he had an impulse to firebomb the Brookings Institute upon hearing of Ellsberg’s betrayal with the Pentagon Papers blindside haymaker.

That doesn’t matter to what Watergate was. “Watergate” was a CIA code word. “Watergate” was a hoax, and a target of the hoax was Nixon and his stooges.

Everything that matters about Nixon here, in this context, is contained in that bulletin above. It tells exactly why the CIA had to remove Nixon after it took out and nullified Hubbard, and stole his OT levels for the “remote viewing” program. Nixon never would have stood for Scientology being used in his administration for intelligence purposes, had he found out. He hated the Hubbards and Scientology.

That’s also the complete reason why Spiro Agnew had to be taken out as Nixon’s VP: the CIA had Gerald Ford waiting in the wings for Vice President, and Ford was witting. Ford was in the club on “that whole Bay of Pigs thing,” having helped cover it up on the Warren Commission. He also had been brought in early on with the CIA’s plan for the take-down of Hubbard and the craven need for seizing the OT levels in the Coldest War for the minds and souls of men.

Ford also was going to help get revenge on Hubbard for an old and dear friend: he was going to name Nelson Rockefeller as his VP when he took over the presidency from Nixon.

Nelson had a score or two of his own to settle with L. Ron Hubbard. And Nelson had some friends in the psycho-establishment who would be only too eager to help in any way they could.

With the CIA, they had developed lots and lots of ways.

[NOTE] This bulletin is found in several places, in full, on the Internet, as though in the public domain. One source also presented an old hardcopy of this that was described as having been posted on a staff bulletin board at the time of its writing, and that hardcopy had no copyright mark or statement. Also, L. Ron Hubbard himself cancelled this in a later Policy Letter of 10 January 1968, which said in pertinent part: “All statements attacking any political entity or ideology are hereby withdrawn and canceled in any lectures or literature.” Given that this bulletin was so “withdrawn and cancelled,” it cannot have any intrinsic monetary value to be compromised by its reproduction; its value here is strictly its historical value, and this work could not possibly be complete and relevantly commented without the full understanding of its historical impact on events that followed, which this historical work is covering. We therefore feel that its inclusion in full is justified on all levels, including indispensible Fair Use.

Excerpt from “Invisible Contracts”

Wednesday, 6 April 2016 by

This is an excerpt from the book  Watergate: The Hoax, by Ashton Gray, now on sale at AmazoniBooks, Barnes & Noble, and other fine book retailers. This is taken from Chapter 1, “Invisible Contracts.”

Four men central to the CIA’s 1972 above-Top-Secret program—resulting from a CIA assassination—that neither the Church Committee or any other congressional investigative body ever revealed. Left to right: Harold “Hal” Puthoff, “formerly” of NSA and a Scientology OT VII; Sidney “Clubfoot” Gottlieb, managed countless psychiatric and drug atrocities for the CIA against unsuspecting Americans under projects Bluebird, Artichoke, and MK-Ultra, and issued the secret 1972 CIA contracts; Richard “Butcher of Langley” Helms, architect and mastermind of Bluebird, Artichoke, and MK-Ultra, ordered the 1972 assassination and secret contracts; Ingo Swann, U.N. employee with Top Secret clearances, also a Scientology OT VII.

The reporters might have been still rewinding their tape of the Baldwin interview that Sunday, 1 October 1972, when the Central Intelligence Agency—almost as if on cue—quietly issued a contract that would remain a deep secret for decades, throughout everything the world knows of as Watergate and beyond: Office of Technical Services Contract 8473.

The CIA was paying, initially, a little over $285,600 to a physicist and “former” member of the National Security Agency (NSA), Dr. Harold “Hal” Puthoff, for “an expanded effort in parapsychology” to be developed for U.S. military intelligence. The key word in that mission statement is not “psychology;” it’s “parapsychology.” Metaphysics. The paranormal. The contract, dated oddly on a Sunday, initiated a Top Secret military intelligence program that ran into the multimillions of dollars across two decades and six U.S. presidencies, but in practical and political terms, it was an invisible contract.

The public would not find out about this CIA-initiated program for over 20 years. Even when some of the facts squeaked out, almost everything done under that contract would remain secret, hidden, invisible. It still is. As Puthoff said in a 1996 article for the Journal of Scientific Exploration, “almost all of the documentation remains yet classified.” A latter-day participant in the tax-funded program, Joe McMoneagle, told Psychic World magazine in its summer 1998 issue: “Probably less than 2 percent of the information pertinent to the program has been released; certainly almost none of the operational data. A great deal of the research data is still classified as well.”

The contract itself has never seen daylight. It’s as invisible as ever. There is a compelling reason why it was kept that way, a reason that goes well beyond the fact that it dealt with psychic phenomenon. That reason lies in the selection of the three main participants.

Of significant interest to the CIA at the inception of the project was a man named Ingo Swann, who, along with Puthoff, had been involved with the CIA for over a year leading up to the contract—parallel in time to everything that became “Watergate.” Another man, Pat Price, also was brought into the CIA’s core group. Those three men who were central to the purpose of the secret contract—Puthoff, Swann, and Price—had something in common that was very uncommon: All three of them were Scientologists.

All three of them had risen through the ascending levels of Scientology services to attain its upper states of being known as “Operating Thetan” (OT). That designation represented an ability—acquired through the processes of Scientology’s secret OT levels—to operate and perceive as a spiritual entity outside of and independent of a human body. The concept could be likened to an “out-of-body experience” that is under the person’s volitional control.

It’s impossible to mention Scientology’s OT levels today without address to purported copies of them that have been broadly distributed around the world through the Internet. Later chapters supply evidence that those copies are forgeries, frauds created by CIA and put into circulation, but in October of 1972, the OT levels were Scientology’s closely guarded secrets, available by invitation only.

The founder of Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard, had issued official edicts strictly forbidding any government agency from gaining access to the secret upper levels. The OT Levels were his intellectual property, so he had the right to control access to the limited number of copies of the works. He had expressly debarred “suppressive groups,” which included “police spy organizations and government spy organizations” such as the CIA, IRS, FBI, NSA, Department of Justice, “or any other federal agency in any country.” He also debarred any agents, current or former, of any such organization unless and until that organization had been formally and fully disbanded.

Hal Puthoff had been in the NSA, yet he somehow had slipped his way through Scientology’s application screening process to get access to the secret upper Scientology levels. He had reached the highest level attainable at the time, called OT VII, and was bringing that knowledge under contract to the CIA.

Ingo Swann had been given Secret and Top Secret clearances by the government during his service in the military, a clear indication that he had been involved in sensitive classified “spy organization” operations, and he had continued to work with sensitive information in a job at the United Nations after leaving military service, yet he also managed to slip his way through and get access to the secret upper Scientology levels. He, too, had reached OT VII, and was bringing that knowledge to the CIA.

Pat Price had a background as a “California police commissioner and city councilman.” Nothing has ever been revealed about government security clearances he might have had at any time, in any capacity, but he certainly had passed a CIA smell-test to be brought into the secret contract. He, like Puthoff and Swann, had gone up through the Scientology processes, and had reached at least Scientology’s OT III.

Some not-quite-bright commentators have opined that it was pure happenstance that the CIA-initiated program to explore psychic phenomena would have as its core three Scientology OTs. Given that in 1972 there were no more than about 3,500 Scientology “Clears”—a prerequisite to reaching the OT Levels—and given that the population of the United States at the time was approximately 209,900,000, the most charitable possible odds of that happening are about (3,500 / 209,000,000)^3, or about 1 in 200 trillion. By comparison, DNA odds given in court usually run only about 1 in a billion. The CIA inarguably had an agenda, and whatever their reasons, that agenda was the “appropriation” of Hubbard’s OT technology for military espionage.

There is not any evidence that has been uncovered anywhere that President Richard M. Nixon ever knew anything at all about the CIA’s secret program using the Scientologists. There is every indication from his past and his Quaker creed that he would have brought it to a screeching, smoking halt if he had.

There is not any scrap of verifiable evidence anywhere that Hubbard ever found out about the CIA’s secret program to get its hands on his OT Levels. There is no question at all that he would have brought it to a screeching, smoking halt if he had.

There’s also no question that Bible-thumpin’ doorway-blockin’ good ol’ Southern Methodist George C. Wallace would have brought it to a screeching, smoking halt if by some long chance he had made it to the Oval Office—but he was brought to a screeching, smoking halt himself on 15 May 1972, just months before the CIA’s secret contract and the Presidential elections. That eliminated the Wallace problem.

The Washington Post’s hotshot Watergate reporters, Woodward and Bernstein (hereinafter, “Woodstein”), didn’t find out about it.

Grandfatherly Walter Kronkite never announced it on the CBS Evening News. Nor did government watchdogs Jack Anderson or Seymour Hersh ever write a syllable about it.

The 1975 Rockefeller Commission—formally known as the United States President’s Commission on CIA Activities Within the United States—never revealed it, even though the CIA program had been going on within the United States for two years when the commission was empaneled. That committee was headed up by then Vice President of the United States Nelson Rockefeller. Having Rockefeller in charge of an investigation of the CIA was like sending a velociraptor to guard the henhouse. During the Eisenhower administration in the 1950s Rockefeller had “headed the secret ‘Forty Committee,’ a group of high government officials who were charged with overseeing the CIA’s clandestine operations.” Between 1969 and 1974—throughout Watergate and at the very time that the CIA was laying the groundwork for stealing the secret Scientology OT Levels—Nelson Rockefeller had been a key member of the President’s Foreign Intelligence Board, closely tied to Director of Central Intelligence Richard Helms, and to Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs Henry Kissinger. Rockefeller, of all people, probably did know that in some devious way the CIA had managed to get past Hubbard and get its hands on his OT Levels, but the committee never reported a single word about it to the American public.

One startling revelation did emerge from the creation of the Rockefeller Commission, though not from the committee itself or its proceedings. It came from the loose lips of President Gerald Ford after he set up the commission:

On January 16, 1975, the President held a luncheon in the White House for the publisher of The New York Times, Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, and some of his top editors, including the managing editor A. M Rosenthal. At the end of an hour or so of general discussion, Rosenthal asked Ford how he expected the Rockefeller Commission to be trusted when its membership was so heavily weighted by conservative figures with a history of hard-line political beliefs and sympathy for the military. Ford explained with unusual candor that the commission’s mandate was strictly limited to CIA activities within the United States and he didn’t want anybody on it who might stray off the reservation and begin rummaging about in the recesses of CIA history. If they did they might stumble onto things which would blacken the name of the United States and every President since Truman.

“Like what?” asked Rosenthal.

“Like assassinations!” Ford shot back. And then it sank in on him what he had said, and to whom he had said it. “That’s off the record!” he quickly added.

Another investigative committee, the so-called Church Committee, also met in 1975. Chaired by Senator Frank Church and formally known as the United States Senate Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities, it also somehow whiffed finding out about this CIA scandal using the Scientologists. Not a single peep in its report. Then again, Senator Church had been stonewalled by Nelson Rockefeller:

When Senator Church asked for materials from the White House, he was told that the papers had been given to the Rockefeller Commission. When the senator demanded the papers from Rockefeller, the vice president declined to provide them on the grounds that only the president could grant access to the papers.

It’s not really surprising that Congress and the American people remained blissfully stupid about the CIA’s long-running dirty little secret. Hal Puthoff, in a 2008 talk at The Arlington Institute, revealed that the program had been more than merely Top Secret; he described it as a Special Access program, meaning that it was also code-word protected. In Puthoff’s words: “Someone could have a Top Secret clearance, but they could not get access to the program or any of its results unless they were on a special list.”

Somehow, right in the middle of the Watergate scandal, the CIA secretly and illicitly had got religion—and had it under government contract, Hubbard and his copyrights and his edicts be damned.

Excerpt from “The Sea Project, Ingo Swann, and a Damned Liar”

Tuesday, 5 April 2016 by

Watergate-Hoax-5a-CHANGE-Kindle-Smashwords-EYEFIX-FINAL72
This is an excerpt from the book  Watergate: The Hoax, by Ashton Gray, now on sale at AmazoniBooks, Barnes & Noble, and other fine book retailers. This is taken from Chapter 16, “The Sea Project, Ingo Swann, and a Damned Liar”:

Whatever he [L. Ron Hubbard] did in Tangier at the beginning of 1967, he was going to be coming back there. On this trip, he stayed in Tangier until nearly the end of February, when he flew to an old familiar place: Las Palmas, Canary Islands. He was there to meet up with his ship the Enchanter, which arrived there on 25 February 1967.

This event brings up an anecdote that is a classic example of the kind of uncorroborated gossip and garbage that is the stock-in-trade for the Hubbard hatchet-job “biographers” from Britain, all of them in league with the CIA and the Five Eyes. It’s embodied in the following melodramatic “account” of Hubbard’s arrival in Las Palmas to meet the Enchanter, told in Russell Miller’s Bare-Faced Messiah by one Virginia Downsborough, who opened herself to any smearer of Hubbard who wanted to probe her. She claimed to have been aboard the Enchanter, coming from Hull with a small crew—even though other sources cited in this book say the ship was in Clearwater, Florida, when purchased, and that Downsborough arrived later on a different ship, the Avon River. According to her, though, she and the Enchanter had already arrived when Hubbard got to Las Palmas, flying in from Tangier:

We found him a hotel in Las Palmas and next day I went back to see if he was all right, because he did not seem to be too well.

When I went in to his room there were drugs of all kinds everywhere. He seemed to be taking about sixty thousand different pills. I was appalled, particularly after listening to all his tirades against drugs and the medical profession. There was something very wrong with him, but I didn’t know what it was except that he was in a state of deep depression; he told me he didn’t have any more gains and he wanted to die. That’s what he said: “I want to die.” . . .

I moved into an adjoining room in the hotel to take care of him. He refused to eat the hotel food, so I got a little hotplate and cooked meals for him in the room, simple things, things that he liked. My main concern was to try and get him off all the pills he was on. . . .

I don’t know what drugs he was taking—they certainly weren’t making him high—but I knew I had to get him over it. I discussed it with him and gradually took them away. He didn’t carry on about it. He had brought a great pile of unopened mail with him from Tangier, a lot of it from Mary Sue, and I got him to start reading her letters. After about three weeks he decided he would get out of bed.

It’s oh-so-breathy, isn’t it? It’s been quoted and requoted and told and retold all over the Internet, all over the world, to “prove” what a fraud ol’ Hubbard was, taking all these drugs—about 60,000 different pills, don’t you know!—and being depressed, and lying in bed for three whole weeks. So much for the effectiveness of Scientology.

There’s one slight problem with Ms. Downsborough’s self-aggrandizing Florence Nightingale act: She and the miserable hack Russell Miller didn’t check the microfiche records for HASI, Inc., at the Arizona Corporation Commission. If they had, they would have discovered that on 28 February 1967—just three days after Hubbard met the Enchanter in Las Palmas on 25 February—he was nowhere near Las Palmas or any hotel there, hotplate or not; he was over 2,000 miles away, in the little burg of Crawley, West Sussex, England, where he and Mary Sue signed a notarized annual report for HASI, Inc. Crawley is 9.7 miles from East Grinstead, home of Saint Hill Manor. The annual report covered the fiscal year that had ended on 30 April 1966. [Below is a detail from that document, showing the date and signatures. —Ed.]

1967-02-28-HASI-Document-DETAIL-150

So the question becomes whether Ms. Downsborough is merely a self-aggrandizing muck-raking liar, or a damned self-aggrandizing muck-raking liar. (Miller unquestionably is the latter.)
