William Cooper (WC): You’re listening to the World Wide Freedom Radio Network.
The following is a special presentation of The Hour of the time; it is part 3 of a 6-part series on mind control. This segment originally aired on June the 15th, 1994 and is tape #376 in our catalogue.
Yes folks, once again you’re listening to The Hour of the time. As always, I’m still William Cooper.
They want it all. The Technical Services Staff of the Central Intelligence Agency, ladies and gentlemen, realized that gaining information about the drug LSD in real- life situations was crucial in exploiting the drug to its fullest. The TSS started conducting experiments on its own people without their knowledge. On its own people, ladies and gentlemen, that’s the kind of people they are: scumbags. There was an extensive amount of self-experimentation; the Office of Security felt the TSS group was playing with fire, especially when it was learned that TSS was prepared to spike an annual office Christmas party punch with LSD – the Christmas party of the Central Intelligence Agency. Can you imagine Richard Helms swinging from the chandelier or stooping in a corner looking for dragons?
LSD, ladies and gentlemen, could produce serious insanity for periods of 8-18 hours and possibly longer. One of the victims of the punch was agent Frank Olson, you see, they did it. Having never done drugs before, LSD took its toll on Olson; he reported that every automobile that came by was a terrible monster with fantastic eyes out to get him personally. And each time a car passed, he would huddle down against a parapet, terribly frightened. Olson began to behave erratically. The Central Intelligence Agency made preparation to treat Olson at Chestnut Lodge, but before they could, he checked into a New York hotel and threw himself out from his 10th story room. The Central Intelligence Agency was ordered to cease all drug testing – and, of course, they did not.
Mind control drugs and experiments were torturous to the victim; one of these three inmates who died in Vacaville prison in July was scheduled to appear in court in an attempt to stop forced administration of a drug, the very drug that may have played a role in his death. Joseph Cannata believed he was making progress and did not need forced dosages of the drug Haldol. The Solano County Coroner’s Office said that Cannata and two other inmates died of hyperthermia – that’s extremely elevated body temperature; remember, I said hyperthermia – elevated body temperature. Their bodies all had at least 108 degrees temperature when they died – and I’m talking core temperature, folks. The psychotropic drugs they were being forced to take will elevate body temperature.
Dr. Ewen Cameron, working at McGill University in Montreal, used a variety of experimental techniques, including keeping subjects unconscious for months at a time, administering huge electroshocks and continual doses of L.S.D. Massive lawsuits developed as a result of this testing, and many of the subjects who suffered trauma had never agreed to participate in the experiments. Such Central Intelligence Agency experiments infringed upon the much-honored Nuremberg Code concerning medical ethics. Dr. Cameron was one of the members of the Nuremberg Tribunal. L.S.D. research was also conducted at the Addiction Research Center of the United States Public Health Service in Lexington, Kentucky. The National Institute of Mental Health and the United States Navy funded this operation. Vast supplies of L.S.D. and other hallucinogenic drugs were required to keep the experiments going. Dr. Harris Isbell ran the program. He was a member of the Food and Drug Administration’s Advisory Committee on the Abuse of Depressant and Stimulants Drugs.
And they want to take your vitamins away. Almost all of the inmates were black, ladies and gentlemen; no racism in this country? You’d better guess again. Almost all of the inmates were black. In many cases, the L.S.D. dosage was increased daily for 75 days. Some 1500 United States soldiers of all races were also victims of drug experimentation. Some claimed they had agreed to become guinea pigs only because of pressure from their commanding officers. Many claimed they suffered from severe depression and other psychological stress. One such soldier was Master Sergeant Jim Stanley. L.S.D. was put in Stanley’s drinking water and he freaked out. Stanley’s hallucinations continued even after he returned to his regular duties. His service record suffered, his marriage went on the rocks and he ended up beating his wife and children. It wasn’t until 17 years later that Stanley was informed by the military that he had been an L.S.D. experimental subject. Of course, his wife was ruined. He sued the government, but the Supreme Court ruled that no soldier could sue the Army for the L.S.D. experiments. Justice William Brennen disagreed with the Court decision. He wrote that, „Experimentation with unknowing human subjects is mo rally and legally unacceptable.“ And I agree with him 100%, ladies and gentlemen.
Private James Thornwell was given L.S.D. in a military test in 1961. For the next 23 years he lived in a mental fog, eventually drowning in a Vallejo swimming pool in 1984. Congress had set up a $625,000 trust fund for him. Large scale L.S.D. tests on American soldiers were conducted at Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland, Fort Benning, Georgia, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, Dugway Proving Ground, Utah, and in Europe and the Pacific. The Army conducted a series of L.S.D. tests at Fort Bragg in North Carolina. The purpose of the tests were to ascertain how well soldiers could perform their tasks on the battlefield while under the influence of L.S.D. At Fort McClellan, Alabama, 200 officers in the Chemical Corps were given L.S.D. in order to familiarize them with the drug’s effects. At Edgewood Arsenal, soldiers were given L.S.D. and then confined to sensory deprivation chambers and later exposed to a harsh interrogation session by intelligence people. In these sessions, it was discovered that soldiers would cooperate if promised they would be allowed to get off the L.S.D.
In Operation Derby Hat, foreign nationals accused of drug trafficking were given L.S.D. by the Special Purpose Team, with one subject begging to be killed in order to end his ordeal. Such experiments were also conducted in Saigon on Viet Cong POWs under the Phoenix Project, which lieutenant colonel James “Bobo” Gritz was a part of. We’re going to get bumper stickers printed up, folks, that’s going to say “Gritz for breakfast in ’96”; if you want one, let us know.
Now, this is going to be of special interest to everyone: One of the most potent drugs in the United States arsenal is called BZ or quinuclidinyl benzilate. It is a long-lasting drug and brings on a litany of psychotic experiences and almost completely isolates any person from his environment. I’m going to say that again, folks, for you: it’s a long- lasting drug; it brings on a litany of psychotic experiences and almost completely isolates any person from his environment. The main effects of BZ last up to 80 hours – that’s 8-0 hours – 80 hours, compared to eight hours for L.S.D. Negative after-effects may persist for up to six weeks. The BZ experiments were conducted on soldiers at Edgewood Arsenal for 16 years. Many of the „victims“ claim that the drug permanently affected their lives in a negative way. It so disorientated one paratrooper that he was found taking a shower in his uniform and smoking a cigar. BZ was eventually put in hand grenades and a 750-pound cluster bomb. Other configurations were made for mortars, artillery and missiles. The bomb was tested in Vietnam and CIA documents indicate it was prepared for use by the U.S. in the event of large -scale civilian uprisings – and I published it in my book years ago that when they suspend the constitution and overtly create the one-world government so that everybody knows it and has no doubt whatsoever, where Americans resist they will be sprayed from the air with BZ. I wrote this years ago folks, this is just confirmation and you can find it in many, many other references to the mind control experiments of the Central Intelligence Agency, the Office of Naval Intelligence, Army G-2 and others.
It is important that we know these things so that we can prepare and so that we will not be taken off guard.
They want it all. In Vacaville, psychosurgery has long been a policy. In one set of cases, experimental psychosurgery was conducted on three inmates, a black, a Chicano and a Caucasian. This involved the procedure of pushing electrodes deep into the brain – deep into the brain – in order to determine position of defective brain cells, and then shooting enough voltage into the suspected area to kill the defective cells. One prisoner, who appeared to be improving after surgery, was released on parole, but ended up back in prison. The second inmate became violent and there is no information on the third inmate. I wonder where he is or what he’s done.
Vacaville also administered a „terror drug“ Anectine – Anectine – as a way of „suppressing hazardous behavior“ – I’ve heard of hazardous materials, I’ve never heard of hazardous behavior. In small doses, Anectine serves as a muscle relaxant; in huge does, it produces prolonged seizure of the respiratory system and sensation „worse than dying“. The drug goes to work within 30 to 40 seconds by paralyzing the small muscles of the fingers, toes, and eyes, and then moves into the intercostal muscles and the diaphragm. The heart rate subsides to 60 beats per minute, respiratory arrest sets in and the patient remains completely conscious throughout the ordeal, which lasts two to five minutes. The experiments were also used at Atascadero. Several mind altering drugs were originally developed for non-psychoactive purposes and some of these drugs are Phenothiazine and Thorzine. The side effects of these drugs can be a living hell. The impact includes the feeling of drowsiness, disorientation, shakiness, dry mouth, blurred vision and an inability to concentrate. Drugs like Prolixin are prescribed and described by users as „sheer torture“ and „becoming a zombie“.
The Veterans Administration, the VA Hospital has been shown by the General Accounting Office to apply heavy dosages of psychotherapeutic drugs. One patient was taking eight different drugs: three antipsychotic, two anti-anxiety, one antidepressant, one sedative and one anti-Parkinson. Three of these drugs were being given in dosages equal to the maximum recommended. Another patient was taking seven different drugs. One report tells of a patient who refused to take the drug. „I told them I don’t want the drug to start with, they grabbed me and strapped me down and gave me a forced intramuscular shot of Prolixin. They gave me Artane to counteract the Prolixin and they gave me Sinequan, which is a kind of tranquilizer to make me calm down, which over-calmed me, so rather than letting up on the medication, they then gave me Ritalin to pep me up.“
Ritalin – we’ll get to that later; they’re giving that to your children in school. Prolixin, ladies and gentlemen, lasts for two weeks. One patient describes how the drug does not calm or sedate nerves, but instead attacks from so deep inside you, you cannot locate the source of the pain. “The drugs turn your nerves in upon yourself. Against your will, your resistance, your resolve, are directed at your own tissues, your own muscles, reflexes, etc.” The patient continues, “The pain grinds into your fiber, your vision is so blurred you cannot read. You ache with restlessness, so that you feel you have to walk, to pace. And then as soon as you start pacing, the opposite occurs to you, you must sit and rest. Back and forth, up and down, you go in pain you cannot locate. In such wretched anxiety you are overwhelmed because you cannot get relief even in breathing.”
And, this is another quote: “We need a program of psychosurgery for 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 electric stimulation of the brain.” These, ladies and gentlemen, were the remarks of Dr. Jose Delgado as they appeared in the February 24, 1974 edition of the Congressional Record, Number 26, Volume 118.
Thought I was full of bologna, didn’t you? Look it up. Despite Dr. Delgado’s outlandish statements before Congress, his work was financed by grants from the Office of Naval Research, the Air Force Aero-Medical Research Laboratory, and the Public Health Foundation of the city of Boston. Dr. Delgado was a pioneer of the technology of Electrical Stimulation of the Brain, or ESB. The New York Times ran an article on May 17, 1965 entitled Matador With a Radio Stops Wild Bull. The story details Dr. Delgado’s experiments at Yale University School of Medicine and work in the field at Cordova, Spain. The New York Times stated this : “Afternoon sunlight poured over the high wooden barriers into the ring, as the brave bull bore down on the unarmed matador, a scientist who had never faced a fighting bull. But the charging animal’s horn never reached the man behind the heavy red cape. Moments before that could happen, Dr. Delgado pressed a button on a small radio transmitter in his hand and the bull braked to a halt. Then he pressed another button on the transmitter, and the bull obediently turned to the right and trotted away. The bull,” you see, “was obeying commands in his brain that were being called forth by electrical stimulation by the radio signals to certain regions in which fine wires had been painlessly planted the day before.”
According to Dr. Delgado, experiments of this type have also been performed on humans. We know that these experiments were conducted in Canada at certain hospitals and that certain unknowing, unwilling, unconsenting human subjects were implanted with small electrodes in the brain, and to this day are still being controlled by their handlers. Some have discovered these electrodes and are attempting – attempting – to disclose the truth of these experiments. Of course, they are the targets of the government, the intelligence community and some of them have borne tremendous injustices.
While Dr. Delgado was giving a lecture on the brain, in 1965, he said this: “Science has developed a new methodology for the study and control of cerebral function in animals and humans.” The late L.L. Vasiliev, professor of psy… physiology, that’s physiology – at the University of Leningrad wrote a paper about hypnotism: “As a control of the subject’s condition, when she was outside the laboratory in another set of experiments, a radio set was used. The results obtained indicate that the method of using radio signals substantially enhances the experimental possibilities.” The profe ssor continued to write, “I.F. Tomaschevsky (a Russian physiologist) carried out the first experiments with this subject at a distance of one or two rooms, and under conditions that the participant would not know or suspect that she would be experimented with. In other cases, the sender was not in the same house, and someone else observed the subject’s behavior. Subsequent experiments at considerable distances were successful. One such experiment was carried out in a park at a distance. Mental suggestions to go to sleep were complied with within a minute.” The Russian experiments in the control of a person’s mind through hypnosis and radio waves were conducted in the 1930s, some 30 years before Dr. Delgado’s bull experiment. Dr. Vasiliev definitely demonstrated that radio transmission can produce stimulation of the brain. It is not, ladies and gentlemen, a complex process as you may believe. In fact, it need not even be implanted within the skull or be productive of stimulation of the brain. All that is needed to accomplish the radio control of the brain is a twitching muscle. The subject becomes hypnotized and a muscle stimulant is implanted. The subject, while under hypnosis, is commanded to respond when the muscle stimulant is activated, in this case by radio transmission.
Lincoln Lawrence wrote a book entitled “Were We Controlled?” Lawrence wrote, “If the subject is placed under hypnosis and mentally programmed to maintain a determination eventually to perform one specific act, perhaps to shoot someone, it is suggested thereafter, each time a particular muscle twitches in a certain manner, which is then demonstrated by using the transmitter, he will increase this determination even more strongly. As the hypnotic spell is renewed again and again, he makes it his life’s purpose to carry out this act until it is finally achieved.” Mr. Purdy, where are you? “Thus are the two complementary aspects of Radio -Hypnotic Intracerebral Control (RHIC) joined to reinforce each other, and perpetuate the control, until such time as the controlled behavior is called for. This is done by a second session with the hypnotist giving final instructions. These might be reinforced with radio stimulation in more frequent cycles. They could even carry over the moments after the act to reassure calm behavior during the escape period, or to assure that one conspirator would not indicate that he was aware of the coconspirator’s role, or that he was even acquainted with him“ or he would put a gun to his own head and blow his own brains out before he could be questioned by anyone. RHIC constitutes the joining of two well known tools, the radio part and the hypnotism part. People have found it difficult to accept that an individual can be hypnotized to perform an act which is against his moral principles. Some experiments have been conducted by the United States Army which show that this popular perception is absolutely false.
The chairman of the Department of Psychology at Colgate University, Dr. Estabrooks, has stated, “I can hypnotize a man without his knowledge or consent into committing treason against the United States.” I’m going to say that again: “I can hypnotize man without his knowledge or consent into committing treason against the United States.” Estabrooks was one of the nation’s most authoritative sources in the hypnotic field. The psychologist told officials in Washington that a mere 200 well trained hypnotists could develop an army of mind-controlled sixth columnists in wartime United States. He laid out a scenario of an enemy doctor placing thousands of patients under hypnotic mind control, and eventually programming key military officers to follow his assignment. Through such maneuvers, he said, the entire United States Army could be taken over. Large numbers of saboteurs could also be created using hypnotism through the work of a doctor practicing in a neighborhood on foreign born nationals with close cultural ties with an enemy power.
Dr. Estabrooks actually conducted experiments on U.S. soldiers to prove his point. Soldiers of low rank and little formal education were placed under hypnotism and their memories tested. Surprisingly, hypnotists were able to control the subjects‘ ability to retain complicated verbal information. J. G. Watkins followed in Estabrooks’ steps and induced soldiers of lower rank to commit acts which conflicted not only with their moral code, but with the military code which they had come to accept through their basic training. One of the experiments involved placing a normal, stable army private in a deep trance. Watkins was trying to see if he could get the private to attack a superior officer, a cardinal sin in the military. While the private was in a deep trance, Watkins told him that the officer sitting across from him was an enemy soldier who was going to attempt to kill him. In the private’s mind, it was a kill or be killed situation. The private did not see his own officer sitting there, he saw an enemy soldier. The private immediately jumped up and grabbed the officer by the throat. The experiment was repeated several times, and in one case the man who was hypnotized and the man who was attacked were very close friends. The results were always the same. In one experiment, the hypnotized subject pulled out a knife and nearly accomplished the task. Subsequent experiments began with searching the subject to make sure that there were no more weapons.
Watkins concluded that people could be induced to commit acts contrary to their morality if their reality was distorted by the hypnotism. Similar experiments were conducted by Watkins using WACs – or members of the Women’s Army Corps – exploring the possibility of making military personnel divulge military secrets. I wonder what that experiment consisted of – or, I should say, you wonder, because I’m not going to tell you. A related experiment had to be discontinued because a researcher, who had been one of the subjects, was exposing numerous top-secret projects to his hypnotist, who did not have the proper security clearance for such information. The information was divulged before an audience of 200 military personnel. And one of the people propagating the extraterrestrial invasion myth – a Minister Robert Lazar – was the partner in the ownership of a brothel, a house of prostitution where license plates of the customer’s cars were videotaped and the customers were videotaped; could he have been participating in one of these mind control experiments, or maybe conducting it and then later – later – part of another vast mind control experiment on the American people to create the illusion of extraterrestrial abduction and the imminent threat of invasion of an extraterrestrial force? It could be, ladies and gentlemen, because when I was in the Office of Naval Intelligence, certain information was given to me that made me believe that that was what was happening until I stopped being stupid and began to do my own research.
In man’s quest to control the behavior of humans, there was a great breakthrough established by one Pavlov – you all have heard of him – who devised a way to make dogs salivate on cue. Now just think of the possibilities. He perfected his conditioning response technique by cutting holes in the cheeks of dogs and measured the amount they salivated in response to different stimuli. Pavlov verified that “quality, rate and frequency of the salivation changed – changed, ladies and gentlemen – depending upon the quality, rate and frequency of the stimuli.” Though Pavlov’s work falls far short of human mind control, it did lay the groundwork for future studies in mind and behavior control of humans; for that’s what this is all ultimately directed at. John B. Watson conducted experiments in the United States on an 11-month-old infant. After allowing the infant to establish a rapport with a white rat, Watson began to beat on the floor with an iron bar every time the infant came in contact with the rat. After a time, the infant made the association between the appearance of the rat and the frightening sound, and began to cry every time the rat came into view. Eventually, the infant developed a fear of any type of small animal. Watson was the founder of the behaviorist school of psychology, which calls itself a science which really is no science whatsoever, based upon no facts whatsoever, based upon no scientific method whatsoever.
“Give me the baby,” he said, “and I’ll make it climb and use its hands in constructing buildings or stone or wood. I’ll make it a thief, a gunman or a dope fiend. The possibilities of shaping in any direction are almost endless. Even gross differences in anatomical structure limits are far less than you may think. Make him a deaf mute, and I will build you a Helen Keller. Men are built, not born.” And these are the people who want to have control of your children every day. Watson proclaimed his psychology did not recognize inner feelings and thoughts as legitimate objects of scientific study, he was only interested in overt behavior. I would like to experiment with Mr. Watson on some overt behavior; I have some very interesting proposals in mind. I would like to see how Mr. Watson behaves under my experimentation.
Though Watson’s work was the beginning of man’s attempts to control human actions, the real work was done by B.F. Skinner, the high priest of the behaviorist movement. The key to Skinner’s work was the concept of operant conditioning, which relied on the notion of reinforcement, which is: all behavior which is learned is rooted in either a positive or negative response to that action. There are two corollaries of operant conditioning: Aversion therapy and desensitization. You all are being subjected to desensitization every single day on purpose intentionally and most of you haven’t got the brains to even realize it. Aversion therapy uses unpleasant reinforcement to a response which is undesirable. This, ladies and gentlemen, can take the form of electric shock, exposing the subject to fear-producing situations, and the infliction of pain in general. It has been used as a way of „curing“ homosexuality, alcoholism and stuttering. Desensitization involves forcing the subject to view disturbing images over and over and over and over and over and over again they no longer produce any anxiety, then moving on to more extreme images, and repeating the processes over and over and over and over again until no anxiety is produced. That is what television is doing to all of the nation at the present time. Eventually, the subject becomes immune to even the most extreme images. This technique is typically used to treat people’s phobias. Thus, the violence shown on television could be said to have the unsystematic and intended effect of desensitization.
Sleep well, goodnight, and God bless you all.
