U is for Ultra, MKUltra

Image: Evan


The CIA has made several appearances on the A to Z of conspiracy theories from possible involvement in 9/11 (B post) and the JFK (J post) assassination to definitely using nasty weapons such as the heart-attack gun (C post).

Today they're back again, this time with another true conspiracy. MKUltra was a code name for a program using U.S. and Canadian citizens as subjects for covert mind control and interrogation research. It started in the 1950s, continued through the 1960s, and was made public in 1975 by Congress and the Rockefeller Commission. Supposedly, the program was scrapped (most of the files were destroyed in 1973), but some think the research continued.

According to Wikipedia, MKUltra experiments involved the use of drugs (in particular LSD), hypnosis, sensory deprivation, isolation, verbal and sexual abuse, and other forms of psychological torture. Research occurred at colleges, universities, hospitals, prisons, and pharmaceutical companies.


Candidates believed to be victims of this CIA mind control program:

1. Sirhan Sirhan, the man convicted of assassinated Robert Kennedy

2. Jim Jones, leader of a cult in Jonestown, Guyana who convinced his members to commit mass suicide.

3. Jim Hendrix's manager and former M16 agent, Michael Jeffrey, killed the guitar wunderkind with pills and wine while under mind control.

4. Mark David Chapman, the man who shot John Lennon

5. John Hinkley, the man who shot at president Ronald Reagan

6. Robert Bardo, who shot actress Rebecca Schaeffer

7. Lee Harvey Oswald, the man held responsible for JFK's assassination

Incidentally, Chapman, Hinkley, Bardo, and Oswald were all in possession of J.D. Salinger's Catcher in the Rye when they pulled the trigger with their fingers. Conspiracy theorists believe parts of the text were used to pull the "triggers" in their minds.

MKUltra has another connection to popular fiction: inspiration for Stephen King's Firestarter. Remember the experiments that Charlie McGee's parents participated in and the sinister branch of government called The Shop?

T is for the Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis

The Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male started with good intentions. In the 1920s, estimates of syphilis in the population at reproductive age were high--35%. The treatment at the time involved heavy metals mercury and bismuth, but the cure rate with such medicine was less than 30%. Side effects of these toxic materials were bad and sometimes fatal.

In 1929, the stock market crashed and the Great Depression started. Funding for the original program was cut, so in 1932, the decision was made to simply study the progression of the disease with about 400 negro men with syphilis and 200 without syphilis (the control group).

Despite urban myths to the contrary, no one was injected with syphilis, but the subjects were promised free treatment, meals, and burial insurance without knowing their diagnosis, what treatments they would receive, or what other treatments might be available. This lead to several abuses.

Spinal taps were performed without anesthesia to study the neurological effects of the disease. When penicillin became available in the 1940s as a safe and effective treatment to replace the dangerous heavy metals, the study participants were not informed. In fact, the decision was made to deliberately keep these men from receiving penicillin in order to continue the study in 1936, 1940, and again in 1947.

Even when the ethics of the study were questioned in 1968, the CDC "reaffirmed (the) need for study and gained local medical societies' support." Which societies, you ask? Both the AMA (American Medical Association) and the NMA (the largest and oldest national organization representing African American physicians and their patients)!

And that's not all. Since the men with syphilis were not aware of their diagnosis, they did not know they could pass the disease to their wives through sexual contact. They did not know that their children could be born with the disease.

The study lasted 40 years.

Finally, a press leak in 1972 ended the study for good, but it was too late for the victims. Besides the men who died from untreated syphilis, 40 wives contracted the disease and 19 children were born with congenital syphilis.

After the study was made public, laws were put into place to protect participants in medical studies so that they would have informed consent, knowledge about the treatments received, and knowledge about alternative treatments. A settlement of ten million dollars was awarded to the victims for lifetime medical benefits and burial services. President Bill Clinton issued an apology. The Tuskegee University National Center for Bioethics in Research and Health Care was established.

Have you ever heard of this study? What bit surprised you the most? That the men didn't even know they had syphilis? That penicillin was denied to them? Or that the CDC supported the study even as late as 1969?

S is for Snowden--Big Brother is Real

Image: Laura Poitras / Praxis Films [CC BY 3.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0)], via Wikimedia Commons

Edward Joseph Snowden, former CIA and NSA computer analyst, leaked classified information from the National Security Agency in 2013, revealing global surveillance programs watching cell phone records and cell phone location, keyscore analysis of things people did on the internet including their email, Google, and Yahoo. Gamers using Second LifeXbox Live and World of Warcraft were monitored as they "attempted to recruit would-be informants from the sites". "The NSA was shown to be tracking the online sexual activity of people they termed "radicalizers" in order to discredit them." They even spied on their own "love interests", businesses like major oil companies, and charities like UNICEF. There was a special budget to pay U.S. technical companies for secret access to their communication networks. And that's just scratching the surface.


After releasing thousands of documents to three journalists in Hong Kong, Snowden went into hiding, eventually ending up in Russia where he was granted asylum through 2020. (Wikipedia)

Do you think about surveillance when you surf the web or while talking on your phone? Do you cover up your electronic devices's camera in case someone's watching? If you haven't seen the film, Snowden, I highly recommend it (once you adjust to Joseph Gordon-Levitt assuming a deep accent, that is.)

R is for the Reptilian Elite

Image: Schristia


In 1988, Paula Abdul released Forever Your Girl including the song, "Cold Hearted", with the lyrics "He's a cold-hearted snake, look into his eyes..."

Reptile are cold-blooded, slithery, alien things. They eat sweet, cuddly mice whole. It was a snake that tempted Eve with the apple.




Then came David Icke, who released his book in 1998 called The Biggest Secret, claiming that "many prominent figures belong to the Babylonian Brotherhood, a group of shapeshifting reptilian humanoids who are propelling humanity toward a global fascist state, or New World Order. The reptilians use the rings of Saturn and the Moon, all reptilian constructs, to broadcast our "five-sense prison": an "artificial sense of self and the world" that humans perceive as reality." (Wikipedia)

It's The Matrix meets Men in Black meets V. Whoa!

Image: still shot of Jane Badler as Diana, queen of the alien badies from V, the 1984 TV series

Hey, am I crazy or does she kinda look like Paula Abdul? Hm...

So who are the reptile elite among us? Trump? Queen Elizabeth? Justin Beiber? You tell me.

Q is for Quintinshill Rail Disaster



On May 22, 1915 an error with the Quintinshill signal box (pink) near Gretna Green in Dumfriesshire, Scotland caused a southbound troop train (green) to smash into a stationary train (orange) and then a northbound sleeper train (purple) to hit the southbound one. Trains holding goods (grey and blue) were also nearby. Gas from the lighting system of the troop train ignited and set all the trains on fire. Around two hundred died, mostly men in the troop train. It was the worst rail disaster in British history at the time.


Image: Gif from By Emoscopes, Tevildo [CC BY-SA 3.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0)], via Wikimedia Commons



So what's the conspiracy angle? The signalmen present that day were tried and convicted for culpable homicide, released from jail the following year, and re-employed by the same railway company (though not as signalmen). This led to speculation that the railway company and the government (who was running the railways in war time) used the signalmen as scapegoats, letting them take the fall for what was actually the rail company and government's responsibility. (Wikipedia)

Another controversy was that some of the troops trapped in the blaze were either shot (mercy killings) and/or committed suicide. A BBC documentary was released that confirmed the mercy killings in 2015. 

Quite a sad story, no matter who was responsible.

Q is one of the hardest letters during the A to Z challenge. What's your Q today?

P is for Prohibition Poison

Image: Mike Schmid


Prohibition went into effect on Jan. 1, 1920. With no means to acquire alcohol legally, bootleggers went into action and speakeasies flourished. When authorities blocked the import of alcohol from Canada, bootleggers turned to another source: industrial alcohol meant for paints, solvents, fuels, and medical supplies.



Image: Elgin County ArchivesSt. Thomas Police officers with confiscated bottles of liquor, likely taken from a bootlegger. This picture was likely taken in the basement of the St. Thomas City Hall, ca. 1926.


By 1925, perhaps 60 million gallons of industrial alcohol were stolen annually, renatured to a drinkable form, and sold illegally. The federal government decided to put a stop to it by forcing manufactures to add "kerosene and brucine (a plant alkaloid closely related to strychnine), gasoline, benzene, cadmium, iodine, zinc, mercury salts, nicotine, either, formaldehyde, chloroform, camphor, carbolic acid, quinine, and acetone." Another deadly ingredient was methyl alcohol in a large amount--"up to 10 per cent of the total product".)

After many people came to the ER and died, a New York medical examiner had his toxicologist examine samples of the illegal alcohol, which revealed the above list of poisons. In 1926, twelve hundred people got sick from the poisoned alcohol and 400 died in New York City alone. The next year 700 died in NYC. By the time prohibition ended in 1933, an estimated 10,000 people were killed across the nation.

Learn more from my source: Slate, The Chemist's War: The Little Told Story Of How The US Government Poisoned Alcohol During Prohibition With Deadly Consequences by Deborah Blum.

So if the bartender asks, "What's you poison?" you should reply, "What's yours, buddy? What's yours?"

Anyone remember when one of the characters in Water For Elephants dies of alcohol poisoning?

O is for Owl Worship

Image: By Aarkwilde (Own work) [CC BY-SA 3.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0)], via Wikimedia Commons (The owl statue is on the left.)


The conspiracy theory: Once a year, the richest men in the world gather at a place called the Bohemian Grove to worship at the scaly toes of a gigantic owl statue.

Here's some factual tidbits from Wikipedia:

Bohemian Grove is a 2,700 acre campground in Monte Rio, California owned by a private men's club known as the Bohemian Club, and they do host an annual get together of bigshots from businessmen, university presidents, media moguls, and U.S. government officials including ex-presidents.

They're not supposed to conduct business on these retreats, but the Manhattan Project was discussed in 1942. Military officials and J. Robert Oppenheimer were present.

The notion of owl worship comes from their Cremation of Care ceremony where they release their worries and embrace fun. Along with pyrotechnics, there was a recording inside the statue to dictate the ceremony. Guess whose voice was used for several years? Walter Cronkite.

Sounds like fun to me. Who do you think might attend these days?

N is for Operation Northwoods



If you wondered how anyone could possibly believe that 9/11 was orchestrated to get public support for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan (My B post), then you might find this true conspiracy theory of disturbing interest. Or you might want to skip it.

Castro won his revolution in Cuba on January 1, 1959. The U.S. government was not too comfortable having a communist country 90 nautical miles off its coast. Some wanted to go to war to win Cuba back from the "dark side" of the Cold War. But how could these somebodies get support for such a war from the US citizens? Flyers and commercials saying "pretty please" weren't gonna cut it. Although they did try...


Image: wackystuff, Cold War propaganda


According to Wikipedia, in 1962 the U.S. Department of Defense and the Joint Chiefs of Staff got an idea. An awful idea. They had a wonderful, awful idea that the CIA could sink the boats of Cuban refugees, hijack planes, blow up a U.S. ship, and other acts of violent terrorism in Miami, other Florida cities, and Washington, D.C. Then they would introduce evidence pointing the finger at Castro's Cuban government, and the American public would rally behind a war.

Luckily, President Kennedy said no way, buckaroos. This started a rift between Kennedy and the U.S. Military along with speculation that these branches of the government might have been involved in Kennedy's assassination.

Does this make you think differently of the US government or false flag operations?

M is for Dr. Mary's Monkey--The Nexus of all Conspiracy Theories


Image: Book cover from Amazon


The words in white are a little hard to read:

How the unsolved murder of a doctor, a secret laboratory in New Orleans and cancer-causing monkey viruses are linked to Lee Harvey Oswald, the JFK assassination and emerging global epidemics.

Wow. This book is a conspiracy theorist's dream come true. I did read the Kindle version and even though it does has several typos of the "hear" for "here" variety, it is both readable and intriguing. 

Here's the blurb:

Get ready for the “Hottest cold case in America!” This updated paperback contains the same content as the 2014 hard cover edition which has 25 additional pages of revelations added since the original 2007 paperback. These new pages include documents from the FBI, CIA, CDC, and NOPD, plus the actual crime scene photos from the 1964 murder of Dr. Mary Sherman. The bizarre death of this nationally known cancer researcher sets the stage for this gripping exposé of medical professionals enmeshed in covert government operations. Following a trail of police reports, FBI files, cancer statistics, and medical journals, this revealing book presents a web of secret-keeping which swept doctors into cover-ups of contaminated polio vaccines, cancer outbreaks, the arrival of the AIDS virus, and a deadly biological weapon tested on both monkeys and humans. Add Lee Harvey Oswald to the cast of this secret bio-weapon project, and this dark tale connects Oswald’s summer of secrets to the intrigue surrounding the assassination of President Kennedy.



Image: Three Shots Were Fired.com- The Assassination of Mary S. Sherman


Dr. Mary Sherman was "an internationally-known orthopedic surgeon known for her work in the treatment and research of bone cancers, she was the director of the bone pathology lab at Ochsner Medical Foundation." (Source New Orleans Times-Picayune article with details of the crime scene.) 

The theory is that Dr. Sherman was working on a secret CIA project to assassinate Castro with a cancer-causing virus.

Which virus? A monkey virus known as SV-40.

Wait, haven't I heard of that one somewhere?

Yes, you have. In 1960, it was discovered that the monkey kidney cells used to make the polio vaccine were infected with SV-40, a virus known to cause tumors in mice. Instead of listening to the first scientist, Dr. Bernice Eddy, to make this discovery, the NIH destroyed her career. A few years later, two more scientists made the same discovery. Changes were made to the polio vaccine (we hope), but there were millions of vials of the contaminated vaccine still on the market. There was no recall.(Source) Many people think the surge in breast, brain, and other cancers starting in the mid-1980s may be linked to these early polio vaccines.

How did Dr. Sherman die? 

The official story is that she was murdered in her apartment where her body was found, severely burned and stabbed, with parts of her body missing.

One of the many strange things about the case is that her severe burns did not match the fire damage of the crime scene. Edward Haslam, the author of Dr. Mary's Monkey, makes the case that she was killed by an accident with the linear particle accelerator being used to irradiate the SV-40 virus in hopes of turning it into a biological weapon. He believes her body was moved after her death back to her apartment and the murder scene the police found there was staged. 

How does this link to AIDS?

When you hear about conspiracy theories involving about the CIA making AIDS in a laboratory, this is the type of story they're referring to. 

How is Lee Harvey Oswald involved? Supposedly he was working with a cancer researcher named Judith Vary Baker on this project.

Also, if you read my J is for JFK assassination, you'll remember that Jack Ruby claimed he was injected with something to cause cancer. This is what he was talking about.

Pretty wild stuff, huh?

L is for LIttle Mermaid

Image: Loren Javier


I need a break from all the CIA, assassinations, and other dreary topics. So let's consider the conspiracy theory involving some of Disney's most popular animated films.

This comes from VH1 in a post from Christopher Rosa.

In Frozen, Elsa and Anna's parents go on a voyage from Arendelle, but where were they heading? How about to Corona to celebrate the return of Rapunzel to her parents? Sure! But then their boat sank. NOO! Rapunzel and Flynn felt the need to pay their condolences, so they went to Elsa's coronation. (Rapunzel and Flynn are in the Frozen, but you'll never find them unless you know when and where to look.)

Remember the sunken ship in The Little Mermaid? That's the one Elsa and Anna's parents were traveling on. Mind blown?

And here's one more Little Mermaid theory about Ariel's mom from a Knack Time YouTube video:




Do you know any other conspiracy theories about fictional characters?

K is for Kevlar--Gift from Aliens?

Image: By Cjp24 (Own work) [CC BY-SA 3.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0)], via Wikimedia Commons


Kevlar is a synthetic fiber whose tensile strength-to-weight ratio is 5 times stronger than that of steel. (So where is Kevlar-man, DC Comics? And would he be Superman's enemy or pal?)

Credit for its discovery goes to Stephanie Kwolek who was working for Dupont in 1965. With gas shortages looming, they were looking for something strong, yet light for making tires.

Later Kevlar would be used in body armor, archery bow strings, bicycle tires, tennis racket strings (John McEnroe would be the perfect pitchman for these babies!), drumheads, wicks for fire dancing (see below), frying pans (substitute for Teflon), and high end Nike sneakers.

So where's the conspiracy, you ask?

An Air Force base around 150 miles from Las Vegas, popularly known as Area 51, is also known far and wide as Intergalactic Parking Zone QW#83. Unfortunately, some aliens do drink one too many fizzy tumquots and/or text while flying. Accidents happen, like the one that crashed in Roswell, N.M. in 1947. Weather balloon, my tentacled foot!



Dude, that better be a soda.


Rumor has is that Kelvar is just one of several things, including Stealth Bombers, that have been reverse engineered from the remains of alien spacecraft.

Are you a fan of alien conspiracies, books, TV, or movies? What technological item do you think might have come from an alien intelligence? Oobleck. Definitely oobleck.




Note: My dear daughter is on day 5 of being sick, and I'm super behind on comments. Spring Break starts tomorrow for both kids and lasts all next week, so there is no relief in sight. I guess that's why this is called the A to Z Challenge, huh?

J is for JFK Assassination--Who Did It?

Image: Victor Hugo King, Wikipedia


In Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963, shots rang out, killing President Kennedy as he rode through Dealey Plaza in an uncovered limo. Who was responsible became one of the biggest conspiracy theories of all time.

The official story: Lee Harvey Oswald did it.


Image: Marina Oswald, Wikipedia Commons


Who was Lee Harvey Oswald?

As a kid, he moved around--a lot. Twenty-two different homes (including locations in New Orleans and Dallas) and 12 different schools by age 17, when he dropped out and joined the Marines in 1956. As a radar operator, he needed a security clearance which gave him access to classified data. By 1959 he was discharged to take care of his ailing mother. That same year he defected to Russia. Finding life there dull, he returned to the US in 1962 with his Russian wife, Marina. He was hired to work in the Texas School Book Depository filling orders less than two months before the assassination. Oswald was captured on November 22 after shooting and killing police officer J.D. Tippit. Soon after, he was also charged with Kennedy's murder.

Oswald claimed he was a patsy. Some believe he was working for the CIA all along and went to Russia as a spy. Two days after his arrest, on his way from police headquarters to jail, Oswald was shot by Jack Ruby and died in the same hospital that the President Kennedy had been taken to.


Image: By Ira Jefferson "Jack" Beers Jr. (1910-2009) for The Dallas Morning News (Life time: Originated from the Warren Commission report, a US Government report. From WH Vol.21 p.19) [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons


Who was Jack Ruby?

Ruby managed nightclubs, strip joints, and dance halls in the Dallas area, was suspected of involvement in prostitution rings, illegal gambling, and narcotics, and supposedly had ties to various mafia bosses.

Does this sound like the type of fellow to be so outraged over Kennedy's death that he'd toss his life away to shoot Oswald? That was Ruby's excuse. Later he would change his tune and claim he was framed to do it. He also let folks know his life was in danger and that, in particular, he had been injected with something that would give him cancer.

Ruby was convicted for Oswald's murder, but that sentence was overturned. Before a new trial could be held, Ruby went into the hospital for pneumonia. He died soon after, but guess what? The doctors found cancer in his lungs, liver and brain.


Image: AJC1


Conspiracy Theory #1: The CIA did it.

Why? Fighting communism, especially in Castro's Cuba, was a big deal. The CIA was interested in assassinating Castro, starting a war there, as well as escalating US involvement in Vietnam. Kennedy was saying no to false flag operations (dirty tricks to get US citizens to support wars, which will be discussed again with letter N).


Conspiracy Theory #2: The Mob did it.

The President's brother, Attorney General Robert Kennedy, was a threat to the mob. If John died, Robert's threat to the mob would be lessened significantly.

Also, the mob didn't want Castro in charge of Cuba any more than the CIA. They missed their lucrative casinos and other investments.


Conspiracy Theory #3: The CIA and Mob did it together.

The CIA wanted Castro dead. They even hired members of the Mob to give it a whack. When the Bay of Pigs didn't go as planned, both the CIA and the Mob were mad as heck--at Kennedy.


Conspiracy Theory #4: Lyndon Johnson did it.

According to this theory, Johnson was working with the CIA and tycoon's who were hoping a shift in power would mean more money in their pockets. One of those CIA folks was George H.W. Bush, who was in Dallas on the 22nd.

And there's plenty more, but I'll stop there. Have you studied the JFK assassination through movies or books? Do you know who did it?

I is for the Illuminati

Image: vipez


The word illuminati comes from the Latin illuminatur or enlightened and is plural for illuminatus. Back in 1776, the Bavarian Illuminati was a secret sect that opposed superstition, religious influence over public life, and abuses of state power. (Wikipedia)

These days, the word is associate with a powerful group of people who secretly control the world, may or may not indulge in devil worship, and may or may not be lead by Beyonce.  (Although it would be kind of cool if they were led by a black female. Equal Opportunity Conspirators?)


Image: To2BoRnl

(The triangle, the eye, the pyramid--it's everywhere y'all!)

Anyway, the "proof" of this connection between world power and hip-hop royalty is supposedly evident in the symbols of the devil that show up in music videos like goats, triangles, and the name of Jay-Z and Beyonce's daughter. Blue Ivy stands for "born living under evil, Illuminati's very youngest. And if you put the letter backwards, Eulb Yli, you get the name of Lucifer's daughter in Latin! Ooooo, Ahhhh, it all makes sense.



(Okay, I love animals, but this goat scares me. Just saying.)


Except that's bull-poopy. There is no such name in Latin. Lucifer didn't have a daughter, and letters in Blue Ivy could be for "Beyonce loved ultramarine earrings in various years" or "Bebop loot under every idolizing, vainglorius yokel" for all we know.

Do you have a favorite Illuminati member or myth to share?

H is for HAARP--Weather as a Weapon


Image: HAARP site, Wiki Commons

Located on an Air Force-owned site near Gakona, Alaska is HAARP or the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program. 

What they are supposed to be doing: analyzing and interpreting the ionosphere and investigating the potential for developing ionospheric enhancement technology for radio communications and surveillance. (Wikipidia)

My, what big ears you have, HAARP.



Image: HAARP antennae array, Wiki Commons


What they are actually doing: shooting the ionosphere with a secret ray gun, which “excites” the area, and then creates thunderstorms, tornadoes, and tsunamis. 

But that's not the worst. Rumor has it HAARP has the potential to produce an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) over any city that could take out every electronic device. Kiss those cell phones good-bye. 

It’s weather as a weapon, people!

All I’ve got to say is that if someone in Alaska is controlling the weather, then they better stop letting their three-year-old take the controls. In the space of a week, a wind storm knocked 80-year-old oaks hither and yon like so many bowling pins, followed by a 14-inch blizzard.

This last Friday? Snow again. On Sunday? Seventy degrees and sunny at my house but 48 degrees ten miles away at the lake. What the heck, HAARP? I was having a great bike ride, wearing shorts and a t-shirt, loving the sun, and all of a sudden I’m surrounded by people in winter coats, looking at me like I’m the crazy one. While I shiver.


 


Dude! Forget the three-year-old. Whoever is mailing HAARP cannabis brownies better stop. I mean it.

What's the craziest weather you've had this year?
