Putting Faces on the TI Phenomenom Part 1

This is an update of the blog I’ve written about the activism of several targeted individuals. I noticed an increase in volume of exposure of these crimes and at the same time an increase of “diversionary news/propaganda” by the mainstream media and the perpetrators. As of mid 2011, the most notable diversions were: the changing young faces in the British Monarchy, the well-planned staged election in Canada, the on-going participants of many NATO member countries in on-going war in the West, same-sex marriage recognition in NY, the riots in Vancouver (where the mainstream media focused their attention to a kissing couple instead of the real issue), and the noticeable complacency of Canadians dealing with the human rights violations during the 2010 G8/20 riots. All of these stories diverts the masses’ attention to the on-going OSEH crimes specifically the human rights related violations (i.e.: invasion of privacy, physical assaults, intrusion of individual’s own mind, stalking related activities) that are perpetrated to ordinary citizens knowingly and unknowingly. I came to a temporary conclusion that people seems to be desensitized or misinformed about the gravity of OSEH crimes. Partly to blame are the media who for instance, didn’t even give any attention to several targeted individuals who on May 18, 2011 in New York, spoke at President Obama’s Commission of Bio-ethic Committee Meeting, asking the commission to take a deep look at the present human experimentation that are going on globally. Instead the mainstream media seems to be more interested in one of Charlie Sheen’s live-in girlfriends leaving him or the latest celebrity break-ups. These blog update focuses on targeted individuals who helped me with my own re-education about these phenomenon. I listed them below so that others can learn and make their own opinion. At the same time, to give them (the TIs) thanks for their courage in exposing the crimes. Their activism will help other TI and other uninformed targets. To the fellow TI, remember: “Anyone who nonconsensually violates your brain/mind/mentation using Mengele-like methods is a Nazi pig. You do not care what a Nazi pig thinks. You do not care about a Nazi pig’s opinions. You do not respond to a Nazi pig ridiculing you, threatening you, trying to distract you, or otherwise trying to manipulate you.

Robin Webster
(USA)
"...In a manuscript that took 1,5 years to write and put together, Robin Webster is providing evidence that he was systematically being subjected to covert sleep deprivation tactics. Entitled “Evidence for the Existence of an Invisible Third Degree” and published on Scribd, the document proves, in a logical manner, that Robin Webster doesn’t suffer from a sleep disorder, but that the tactics to systematically deprive him from his night sleep were part of the reality that many Targeted Individuals share. Stalking is, also, a form of psychological torture that is by International Standards recognized as such. That normal people without a link to the police or secret service itself participate in torture, is a part of a slander campaign, but that, still, is intriguing every TI. Why do people become evil? How come that they participate in the torture of another individual, even if it is illegal and it does the TI so much harm? Encoded in the stalking, even if the stalker himself isn’t aware of that, is what is called “dark NLP”, a process by which words, colors, images and other markers are emotionally anchored, to create an illusion of guilt or simply to trigger the desired emotions (desired by the perpetrators)..."

"...I live in North London and for many years I have been the target of a series of State-sponsored activities, which include a campaign of organized vigilante harassment, threats, bullying, abuse, an organized campaign of systematic vilification and character assassination, a campaign of systematic interference, harassment and attacks with Direct Energy “non-lethal” Weapons. The aim is human experimentation, to try out constantly new and evolving techniques and technologies, to find out more about the working of the human mind with the exclusive purpose of controlling and manipulating people, communities, entire nations. With 90% of the world entire wealth owned by some 1000 families and with the US using and consuming 40% of the entire world's resources, it is understandable how the military-industrial complex of the US and its closest allies is obsessed with developing constantly new weapon systems, new methods of psychological warfare, new ways of controlling, manipulating and spying on everything which happens on the planet!..."

Walbert is American inventor, has been secretly implanted a few years ago, and because of complications after implanting the cochlear implant while he had been asleep for an unnormal amount of time, discovered several implants and went to court, won the law suit, but the harassment didn’t really stop. The reason is that the implants are remotely activated or activated even by his own nervous system. Here is the Doctor’s Letter, explaining the murderous damages of the implants (Targeted Individuals Europe).

Mike Matloff
(USA)

""...the flab and fitness loss is because targets of DEWs feel nausea, dizziness and experience vomiting, tears,snot and sweat when they attempt to powerwalk, jog or exercise because of the large amounts of non-ionizing radiation they absorbed during covert attacks at sleeping time at home. Mike Matloff is very commendable, because he filmed the electronic jolts during sleep time- electronic sleep deprivation, on his channel, which is how usually targeting starts. I have to point out, that if a target insists on "will-power" and "discipline" to keep going to the gym, the result will be inflammation of joints or inflammation of the spine, torn ligaments, infections and lower immune system and heart disease or a sudden cardiac arrest. In fact, struggling against your body to exercise is the first tell-tale sign that you are under covert DEWs attack, electronic harassment during sleep.It has NOTHING to do with laziness as one would imagine."

(Nanaimo, BC Canada)

Newhook is activist, targeted individual from Nanaimo, BC. She studied Life Skills Coach Training at the Grant MacEwan University. On one of her radio guesting, Newhook described the start of her ordeal when in 1993 and working as a social worker, she took a 6 year old satanic ritual child abuse case from a Catholic social services in Edmonton, Alberta. She was warned by her superior not to take the case but she took it anyway and discovered the girl's family are entangled in an organization of ritualistic satanic mind control progrms. She will then learned later on that the government sponsored mind control programs that involves children at a young age also involved in population control and other similar research. And this started her targeting. Her perpetrator (stalkers) attempted to recruit her at one point but she figure out the criminal activities of this organization and refused. She also realized that this people used brain mapping technologies and other high tech devices and that the RCMP are involved and even use the services of this criminals. She reiterated that the police are complicit because they use the same technologies and they actuall "do this (stalking and harassment)." She believed that people are being implanted with tracking devices and micro chips and that other targets can't get government assistance to get rid of the implants. She pointed out the targets are branded as "National Security" as they don't get help from health practitioner, lawyer and politicians. Newhook learned to heal herself from directed energy weapon attacks after she several misdiagnosis from health officials who can't figure out what was wrong with her. Newhook believe that people are misinformed and not at all are "bad." She believe that technologies are being used to Canadians, attacking them without their knowledge. The people who are being attack will think of their situation as a series of "bad luck" but actually organized stalking and electronic harassment activities. She adviced anyone who are being attack: "do not isolate yourself." because this is one of the things the perpertrators want targets to do (Deb Newhook on Michael Herzog's "American Awakening" Show) ALSO: web-site; Talk Shoe; fb: Debbie Newhook; Audio

In 2009 she was one of the few who participated in global protest against organized stalking and electronic harassments. She also wrote petition addressed to the Canadian government about this crimes. During the global protest on 2009, she reported: "We protested in front of the Legislative Assembly Building and near Medical Science Building of University of Toronto today. We started at 10.30 A.M. There were 5 people in front of the Legislative Assembly: Robin Yan, Regan Hallett, Carlo Calandra, Mark Holden and I, Galina Kurdina. People approached us and we distributed about 10 fliers. One woman came to us and started a scandal. She offered us to hire people, pay them and ask to hold our posters on streets of Toronto. She suggested us not to appear ourselves on the streets. She persuaded us that we had to put some soft information on our posters, not the truth that we experienced and described. When asked, what soft things she would advice to write on our posters, she did not answer. She asked Robin, what was the reason of his targeting. It was clear for all of us that she worked for police, or RCMP or Government. Robin took his camera and wanted to take pictures of her, and she immedieately disappeared. We left Legislative Building about 1.30 P.M. Robin, Regan and I went to Tim Horton and had some coffee. After that we decided to go to any street and came to Medical Science Building of University of Toronto. Regan left us 30 minutes [later], Robin and I stayed there for one hour. We distributed our fliers very quickly, people approached us, read our poster about mind control and took fliers. One student of UofT, sweet boy, said to us that, in his opinion, these experiments were disgusting, another person wished us to continue our struggle. We made pictures and video records.

The GESTAPO, today renamed BND, after only one year of pause continued their violent suppression of any opposition in 1946. Today the BND operates according to the same principles, not being submitted to law and justice or being controlled in another suitable way. This must not be forgotten while reading this text and watching the films documenting torture, brainwashing and steering by the BND.

Tar Sands


greening our energy production - “...By continuing to move CCS technology forward, Alberta is demonstrating its ongoing leadership in realizing the commercial-scale deployment of this technology and greening our energy production,” said Premier Ed Stelmach. The project will capture and store more than one million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year from the Scotford Upgrader and its expansion. The province has allotted $745 million in funding for the Quest project over 15 years. “Canada is a world leader in carbon capture and storage and we are in an excellent position to use this technology on a wide scale,” said the Honourable Joe Oliver, Minister of Natural Resources. “The Government of Canada is committed to supporting innovative clean energy technologies such as the Shell Quest project which will help to bring high-quality jobs to Alberta while contributing to the responsible development of Canada’s energy resources.” The Government of Canada is contributing $120 million toward this project through the Clean Energy fund to help demonstrate CCS technology and advance Canada’s leadership on clean energy technologies while reducing greenhouse gas emissions from energy production..." (Alberta inks deal for Shell Quest CCS project)

the world's dirtiest fuels - "...The tar sands do not in fact contain oil but bitumen, probably the product of a freak geologic event. Formed more than 100 million years ago by marine organisms trapped in an ancient seabed, the tar sands are composed of a heavy chain of carbon-rich atoms high in sulfur. Bitumen, a thick, sloppy mess of oil, water, clay, and sand, feels and smells like cheap asphalt. The Cree used to heat up the stuff to repair leaky canoes. But most petroleum engineers acknowledge that it is one of the world's dirtiest fuels. It's not hard to understand why. To capture just one barrel of oil from this geologic pudding requires brute force. Great machines mow down trees (and all their supporting creatures such as boreal songbirds and woodland caribou), roll up acres of muskeg, drain entire wetlands, and reroute rivers. Next, for each barrel, workers must scoop up two tons of sand and wash the stuff in hot water. Even then the bitumen requires substantial upgrading to remove engine-clogging impurities. It costs more than 10 times as much to produce a flowing barrel of oil in this way than it does to produce a barrel of Saudi light oil. The entire process is fueled by natural gas, and the energy consumed is awesome: Every 24 hours the industry burns enough natural gas to heat four million American homes in order to produce one million barrels of oil..." (Canada's Highway to Hell)

protect water and human health - “...We know that companies are increasingly injecting chemicals into the ground to extract tar sands and shale gas,” said Gillian McEachern of Environmental Defence. “Environment Canada has a responsibility under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act to make sure the environment is being protected, and right now that isn’t being done.” The environmental petition demands answers from Environment Canada on two emerging types of fossil fuel extraction: hydraulic fracturing or fracking of rock to access shale gas and in situ tar sands using chemical solvents. In both cases, chemical mixtures are injected into wells and there is currently no requirement for companies to report the substances used. In the U.S., companies recently disclosed that they used 750 different chemicals, 29 of which have been identified as potential carcinogens or having other human health impacts. Companies extracting tar sands are increasingly using chemical solvents to help get deep tar sands deposits out of the ground. The Auditor General’s Office will ensure that Environment Canada fully answers the questions that the petition asks. “It’s time for the federal government to meet its responsibilities to protect water and human health from the impacts of toxic chemicals used by oil and gas companies,” said Patrick Bonin of AQLPA. “The controversy around shale gas has escalated recently in Quebec because people are worried about these impacts, but British Columbia, Alberta and other provinces are also dealing with this issue...” (Ottawa Must Meet Responsibility to Protect Environment at Risk From Chemicals Used For Shale Gas and in Situ Tar Sands: Groups Petition Auditor General’s Office for Answers)

limits to protect the air and water - “...We are committed to the responsible development of the oil sands and all our natural resources, and to managing the social and environmental impacts,” said Sustainable Resource Development Minister Mel Knight. “With this plan, we’re looking ahead more than a generation. It is government’s responsibility to plan for the future and it is important that all Albertans have their say.” An online workbook is available for the next two months at http://www.landuse.alberta.ca/ and public input sessions begin April 18 in Bonnyville and continue in 14 more locations through May 19. The plan also includes regional science-based limits to protect the air and water. Through regional planning, as well as other initiatives, Alberta is moving towards managing the cumulative effects of all development on the air, water and landscape. Management frameworks with science-based limits, and triggers to signal where proactive efforts may be needed to avoid reaching limits, will be in place to achieve the outcomes of the regional plan. Major additional areas of the Lower Athabasca’s land base are identified as new conservation areas, bringing the total for conservation and protected areas to more than two-million hectares of legislatively protected lands in the region - a 20,000 square-kilometre area three times the size of Banff National Park. Ten new provincial recreation areas and six new public lands areas have been identified, including Lakeland Country as an important tourism destination. Government will work with First Nations on an access management strategy for the Richardson backcountry and to develop historic and cultural sites for tourism in the region..." (Regional plan supports conservation and economic growth)

Bituminous sands, colloquially known as oil sands or tar sands, are a type of unconventional petroleum deposit. The sands contain naturally occurring mixtures of sand, clay, water, and a dense and extremely viscous form of petroleum technically referred to as bitumen (or colloquially "tar" due to its similar appearance, odour, and colour). Oil sands are found in large amounts in many countries throughout the world, but are found in extremely large quantities in Canada and Venezuela. The crude bitumen contained in the Canadian oil sands is described by Canadian authorities as "petroleum that exists in the semi-solid or solid phase in natural deposits. Bitumen is a thick, sticky form of crude oil, so heavy and viscous (thick) that it will not flow unless heated or diluted with lighter hydrocarbons. At room temperature, it is much like cold molasses". Venezuelan authorities often refer to similar types of crude oil as extra-heavy oil, because Venezuelan reservoirs are warmer and the oil is somewhat less viscous, allowing it to flow more easily. Oil sands reserves have only recently been considered to be part of the world's oil reserves, as higher oil prices and new technology enable them to be profitably extracted and upgraded to usable products. They are often referred to as unconventional oil or crude bitumen, in order to distinguish the bitumen extracted from oil sands from the free-flowing hydrocarbon mixtures known as crude oil traditionally produced from oil wells. Making liquid fuels from oil sands requires energy for steam injection and refining. This process generates two to four times the amount of greenhouse gases per barrel of final product as the production of conventional oil. If combustion of the final products is included, the so-called "Well to Wheels" approach, oil sands extraction, upgrade and use emits 10 to 45% more greenhouse gases than conventional crude...Canada is the largest supplier of crude oil and refined products to the United States, supplying about 20% of total U.S. imports, and exports more oil and products to the U.S. than it consumes itself.[20] In 2006, bitumen production averaged 1.25 million barrels per day (200,000 m3/d) through 81 oil sands projects, representing 47% of total Canadian petroleum production. This proportion is expected to increase in coming decades as bitumen production grows while conventional oil production declines ..The environmental impact caused by oil sand extraction is frequently criticized by environmental groups such as Greenpeace.[97][98] Environmentalists state that their main concerns with oil sands are land damage, including the substantial degradation in the land's ability to support forestry and farming[citation needed], greenhouse gas emissions, and water use. Oil sands extraction is generally held to be more environmentally damaging than conventional crude oil — carbon dioxide "well-to-pump" emissions, for example, are estimated to be about 1.3-1.7 times that of conventional crude (Wikepedia).

mobbing


psychological terrorism - "...Workplace mobbing can also be considered psychological terrorism, workplace bullying, a hostile workplace environment, psychological manipulation and emotional violence carried out by a group of people that work closely with the intended target. This type of harassment not only affects a person’s capacity to perform their job at work but it also affects their physical health and mental stability as well. Targets of workplace mobbing should be aware that this emotional abuse will put their health at risk. And if not for anything else, the victim of workplace mobbing should take steps to stop this trauma for the sake of his or her physical and emotional well being..." (Workplace Mobbing)

legal duty of an employer to protect - "...It is the legal duty of an employer to protect the mental and physical health of employees. That means protection from harassment, violence and bullying. Across Canada, there has been a major push through legislative amendments to make employers more accountable for fostering mentally safe work environments. This push is backed by case law which has found employers liable for exposing employees to unsafe work environments that have caused unnecessary psychological harm. Many provincial occupational health and safety acts have been expanded to include harm to psychological well-being in the definition of harassment. Managers should never tolerate any violent behaviour including aggression, harassment or threats of violence. Violent or aggressive behaviour hurts the mental health of everyone in the organization and creates a psychologically unsafe work environment filled with fear and anxiety. Many organizations think that harassment, violence and bullying do not affect their workplace however, the prevalence is staggering..." (Harassment, Violence, Bullying and Mobbing)

scapegoating mechanism - "...The main reason for the inadequacies of the Massengill Report, and for simplistic attribution of Cho’s rampage to his allegedly evil character, is the human craving for scapegoats – a phenomenon that RenĂ© Girard has analyzed with enormous insight. The heaping of all blame for the troubles in a group on one or a few individuals, lets everybody else off the hook. Demonization and eventual elimination of the scapegoat symbolically cleanses the group as a whole, and strengthens the members’ solidarity with one another. To point out that Seung-Hui Cho was mobbed at Virginia Tech is to say also that he was scapegoated. The words are synonyms. At least from the fall semester of 2005, Cho was an outcast in the English Department, an “evil presence.” He was not unknown, not a quiet boy passing beneath other students’ radar. He was known and noteworthy, singled out, marked out, exceptional, as a model of how not to be. Other students passing him in the corridor would have thought to themselves, "We are here; he is there." Cho sensed this. This scapegoating, I have argued above, led to Cho’s depression, his suicidal tendencies, and in a downward spiral, to his crazed effort at revenge. Once he committed mass murder, the scapegoating mechanism kicked in with overwhelming force, affecting everyone who watched the news, and confirming the prior demonization beyond all doubt. See? He was even more evil than we thought. Only a true devil, the most hideous monster imaginable, could possibly do what he did. We can only be glad he is dead and pull together to heal. An adequate explanation of the Virginia Tech massacre requires becoming conscious of the scapegoating mechanism, transcending it, and then calmly picking through all relevant evidence, toward a factual, reasoned account of what happened and why. It requires accepting the awful truth of what John Donne wrote, that no man is an island, that every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main, that every man's death diminishes me. This does not mean trying to excuse Cho's inexcusable crimes. Nor does it mean trying to shift blame and scapegoat somebody else. It means trying to get at the truth of what happened: empirical identification of the sequence of events, what led to what. Sound scientific explanation honors those who wrongly and unnecessarily lost their lives or suffered injury at Virginia Tech on April 16, 2007, and gives promise of preventing repetition of the tragedy..." (Mobbing And The Virginia Tech Massacre)

actions of the perpetrator are illegal - "...Certainly, each case of mobbing will have different legal merit depending on the client, the employer, the abuse and a variety of other factors. First, consider recourse through internal complaint channels and through formal systems. Some employers may empathize with the target and work to help the situation. Human resource representatives may intervene and attempt mediation. While this may seem a useful path, keep in mind that the human resource department works for the employer. Their primary interest is the employer. Do not allow the client to become overly optimistic or see this as the end to the battle, this may be one more step in a long and painful process. Therefore, Davenport, et al (1999) observe that as a counselor it will be critical to have attorney referrals available that specialize in workplace issues (Davenport, Schwartz and Elliot, 1999). However, enlisting a lawyer may be the start of a protracted, uphill battle often with little chance of success. An attorney should be able to determine if the actions of the perpetrator are illegal, which mobbing seldom is, or if the actions fall under discrimination, harassment, or hostile work environment (Davenport, Schwartz and Elliot, 1999; Namie & Namie, 2000). Should the actions of the perpetrator be deemed mobbing and legal, work with the client to plan a useful course of action. Harassment or discriminatory treatment-if unrelated to gender, race, age or any other title seven protected categories are not dealt with under current US law (Namie & Namie, 2000). Clients advised by an attorney that they have a case of illegal conduct must still be helped in understanding what this means, and in gaining support for the prolonged battle that may lay ahead..." (Warning: Mobbing is Legal, Work with Caution)

Mobbing in the context of human beings either means bullying of an individual by a group in any context, or specifically any workplace bullying...In medicine, sham peer reviews have been recognised by some as a manifestation of mobbing. US neurologist Lawrence R. Huntoon considers that the psychology of the attackers is a combination of the psychology of bullies and that of the lynch mob. The attacks are typically led by one or a few bullies who have gained positions of power over others and who enjoy exercising and abusing that power to attack and harm the vulnerable (Wikepedia).

The Gatekeepers


distracting people from the real focus of the story - "...The recent flap between Mike Ruppert, crusading creator of the highly respected From the Wilderness website, and Amy Goodman, crusading interviewer of the much-listened-to radio program Democracy Now, is especially revealing as to the sublety of the deception. Ruppert has consistently complained about harassment from the so-called left media, which claimed he was a hysterical conspiracy theorist because he asked embarrassing yet wholly evidence-based questions about the unanswered questions concerning the tragic mystery and coverup of 9/11. Let it be known now that Ruppert is one of the more conservative and respected analysts of the 9/11 enigma. He refuses to speculate about what might have been and instead concentrates on what is empirically obvious. Yet he has been the target of ridicule and scorn from virtually all the left commentators, Goodman and Nation columnist David Corn in particular, and the spectrum of all those supposedly progressive magazines like Mother Jones and The Progressive, and supposedly progressive websites like Common Dreams and Alternet, none of whom will touch the 9/11 issue with a ten-foot pole. Even as mainstream media and the timid alternative press toss out tidbits of information that acknowledge questions exist about the official 9/11 story (the Bob Graham campaign gambit is the latest, in which the Florida senator, who is up to his ears in the conspiracy himself, is hinting that Bush has something to hide), Ruppert himself has a credibility gap, ever since he went to New York City in the weeks following the attacks and announced with certainty that Israel had nothing to do with them. In his defense, he had no evidence. In his indictment, he overlooked the obvious existence of the not-so-invisible giant of Jewish power over U.S. politics and media. So there you have the two litmus issues that can help you distinguish whether a particular news source is on the up-and-up, or simply pretending to be progressive or patriotic, but really just distracting people from the real focus of the story with tantalizing bits of evidence that will ultimately lead nowhere, which ultimately deflects the public from perceiving the right questions to ask..."

values and orientations of the U.S. empire - "...The Ford Foundation's history of collaboration and interlock with the CIA in pursuit of U.S. world hegemony is now a well-documented fact. The remaining issue is whether that relationship continues into the new Millenium after the exposures of the 1960s? The FF made some superficial changes. They are more flexible in providing small grants to human rights groups and academic researchers who occasionally dissent from U.S. policy. They are not as likely to recruit CIA operatives to head the organization. More significantly they are likely to collaborate more openly with the U.S. government in its cultural and educational projects, particularly with the Agency of International Development. The FF has in some ways refined their style of collaboration with Washington's attempt to produce world cultural domination, but retained the substance of that policy. For example the FF is very selective in the funding of educational institutions. Like the IMF, the FF imposes conditions such as the "professionalization" of academic personnel and "raising standards." In effect this translates into the promotion of social scientific work based on the assumptions, values and orientations of the U.S. empire; to have professionals de-linked from the class struggle and connected with pro-imperial U.S. academics and foundation functionaries supporting the neo-liberal model..." (The Ford Foundation and the CIA)

the risk of losing their foundation funding - "...One of the most notable cases of Left denial is that of the respected journalist Amy Goodman and her show Democracy Now!. Goodman has long rebuffed requests that she interview an expert on the subject. Instead she has tiptoed around the core facts of the attack and addressed only peripheral issues, such as the EPA's fraudulent assurances that the air in Lower Manhattan was safe to breathe while Ground Zero was still smoldering. Finally, after a concerted campaign by the 9-11 Visibility Project, Goodman featured David Ray Griffin, author of The New Pearl Harbor, on her May 26, 2004 show. Goodman pitted Chip Berlet against Griffin, and gave the last word and closing summary to Berlet, who spun the myth that the attack was strictly blowback. Nonetheless, Griffin was allowed to make the case that the attack was an inside job for the first time ever on the nationally syndicated show. Mark Robinowitz recounts confronting Amy Goodman about her refusal to cover the issue prior to the Griffin interview...In the fall of 2002, Ms. Goodman spoke in the same room at the University of Oregon during a previous speaking tour. After her speech (which was very similar to her May 2004 speech), I asked her after the event if she would help investigate the recently disclosed story of how the Air Force, CIA, NORAD and National Reconnaissance Office were conducting "war games" similar to 9/11 during the 9/11 "attacks," which were apparently used to confuse the air defense response. She would not reply, and looked at me in apparent fear. It was a particularly strange response considering she had just spoken eloquently about her tremendous courage in reporting on the massacre in East Timor. (The issue of the 9/11 war games on 9/11 has not ever been mentioned on Democracy Now -- and it is likely that if they were, DN would run the risk of losing their foundation funding, which would force them to lay off much of their staff.)..." (The Left Gatekeepers Phenomenon )

weapons research think-tank - "...Besides receiving money from Bill Moyers' Schumann Foundation and the Hochschild Charitable Trust/Sequoia Fund of one its own board members, another interesting connection to the world of Establishment foundations exists at MOTHER JONES magazine. In 1997, the wife of MOTHER JONES/Foundation for National Progress board member Adam Hochschild--University of California-Berkeley Professor of Sociology Arlie Russell Hochschild--was given a $3 million grant by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation "to establish a Center for Working Families" at UC-Berkeley, which she now directs. Among the Establishment folks who presently sit on the board of trustees of the Sloan Foundation which funds UC-Berkeley Professor Arlie Russell Hochschild's center is former Secretary of the Air Force Sheila Widnall--who presently represents MIT on the board of trustess of the Pentagon's weapons research think-tank: the Institute for Defense Analyses (www.ida.org). Other members of the Sloan Foundation board include former chairmen of the General Motors, JP Morgan and Morgan Stanley corporate boards and two other MIT professors. In 1991, the wife of MOTHER JONES/Foundation for National Progress board member Hochschild also was apparently given a grant by the Ford Foundation. So it's probably not likely that many muckraking articles about either the Ford Foundation's historic relationship to the CIA, Bill Moyers' Schumann Foundation and Public Affairs TV Inc., the Sloan Foundation, the Institute for Defense Analyses, MIT or UC-Berkeley--or on what evidence has been dug up by 9/11 conspiracy journalists and researchers--will be published much by the MOTHER JONES magazine alternative media gatekeepers/censors."

hypnosis


positive reinforcement - "...Hypnosis is like taking a great nap while a soothing voice helps you visualize your greatest moments, over and over, in every detail, while repeating things like "You're strong. You're confident. You can do this." It feels good. It feels warm. It feels empowering. And that's about it. No drama. No nightclub comedy. No Hollywood hokum. Lots of relaxation. Plenty of repetition. All positive reinforcement. "It's not anything strange," said Cindy Kasper, the hypnotherapist I visited in Sarasota. "It's just working with relaxation and visualization..." (I got hypnotized, and here's what happened)

twenty per cent of the population can be easily hypnotized - "...We know this form of classical conditioning works," says Joordens. "We know the imagery is real. The claim is that hypnotism just amps this up a little bit, and I think that level of claim would be undisputed. "(Hypnotism) can enhance imagery, and if someone is using that imagery, along with other things we know to modify behaviour, then it can be very effective." He notes that a generally accepted estimate suggests 20 per cent of the population can be easily hypnotized, while a similar number cannot. The remaining 60 per cent fall somewhere in between. Much of the public's skepticism, he adds, arises from over-the-top portrayals of mind control found in popular culture, such as the film The Manchurian Candidate, in which communists brainwash a U.S. prisoner of war to become an assassin. "That implication makes people say, 'Oh, come on, you cannot control somebody in that way,' and for the most part, we're pretty sure you cannot control somebody in those ways. It's about taking things we know and creating a context through hypnosis that maximizes the effect..." (You're getting very sleepy)

altering state of consciousness - "...Hypnosis is not sleep; in fact, you are relaxed but focused and alert. Hypnosis is a process in which critical thinking faculties of the mind are bypassed (asked to go into deep relaxation, a sleep state of the muscles so to speak) and a type of selective thinking and perception is established. Hypnosis is thought to work by altering our state of consciousness in such a way that the analytical left-hand side of the brain is turned off, while the non-analytical right-hand side is made more alert. Hypnosis is the science of influencing the subconscious mind to change the thought pattern and behaviour in individuals. Hypnosis is easy, safe and effective with lasting results. Hypnosis is completely relaxing and usually people are completely aware of their surroundings. However you think of it, hypnosis is a method for communicating directly with the subconscious mind. Although the word "hypnosis" comes from the Greek word "sleep", the hypnotized individual is not unconscious, asleep or any other such thing. Being hypnotized is usually characterized by (a) concentration, (b) relaxation, (c) suggestion, and (d) expectation. In fact, while an individual is hypnotized he or she is more alert than ever..."

to fill the mind of subject with positive thoughts - "...Neuro linguistic programming requires individuals who have expertise in handling the techniques of this mind programming method. It can be applied both on individuals and group. Many use these techniques for the purpose of self improvement and to develop a more positive attitude towards the life. It can be positively used to build relationships and in jobs and career development. It can also be used in schools to correct the behavioural problems appear in children. The peculiarity of an NLP programming is that you can not assure the success of the various techniques that are used in this therapy in all persons in the same way. A technique of Neuro Linguistic Programming that found to be successful in an individual need not be so in another individual. It all depends on the response and attitude of the subject towards the programme. You will have to go on experimenting with various techniques until you succeed in your attempt to fill the mind of subject with positive thoughts. The practitioners of NLP combine both the techniques of NLP and hypnosis to get best out of the therapy. Modelling events and procedures can be called as the basics of neuro linguistic programming therapy. Once they learn how a person manages to come out of a particular problem that he suffers, they model the same as a tool to be applied in other persons suffering from similar problems. The model so prepared by the practitioners will have to be applied in a number of subjects until they get the same result in all subjects..." (The Basics Of Neuro Linguistic Programming)


Hypnosis is a mental state (according to "state theory") or imaginative role-enactment (according to "non-state theory"). It is usually induced by a procedure known as a hypnotic induction, which is commonly composed of a long series of preliminary instructions and suggestions. Hypnotic suggestions may be delivered by a hypnotist in the presence of the subject, or may be self-administered ("self-suggestion" or "autosuggestion"). The use of hypnotism for therapeutic purposes is referred to as "hypnotherapy", while its use as a form of entertainment for an audience is known as "stage hypnosis." The words hypnosis and hypnotism both derive from the term neuro-hypnotism (nervous sleep) coined by the Scottish surgeon James Braid around 1841. Braid based his practice on that developed by Franz Mesmer and his followers ("Mesmerism" or "animal magnetism"), but differed in his theory as to how the procedure worked. Contrary to a popular misconception—that hypnosis is a form of unconsciousness resembling sleep—contemporary research suggests that hypnotic subjects are fully awake and are focusing attention, with a corresponding decrease in their peripheral awareness. Subjects also show an increased response to suggestions. In the first book on the subject, Neurypnology (1843), Braid described "hypnotism" as a state of physical relaxation accompanied and induced by mental concentration ("abstraction"). Neurological imaging techniques provide no evidence of a neurological pattern that can be equated with a "hypnotic trance". Changes in brain activity have been found in some studies of highly responsive hypnotic subjects. These changes vary depending upon the type of suggestions being given. However, what these results indicate is unclear. They may indicate that suggestions genuinely produce changes in perception or experience that are not simply a result of imagination. However, in normal circumstances without hypnosis, the brain regions associated with motion detection are activated both when motion is seen and when motion is imagined, without any changes in the subjects' perception or experience.[91] This may therefore indicate that highly suggestible hypnotic subjects are simply activating to a greater extent the areas of the brain used in imagination, without real perceptual changes. Another study has demonstrated that a color hallucination suggestion given to subjects in hypnosis activated color-processing regions of the occipital cortex. A 2004 review of research examining the EEG laboratory work in this area concludes: Hypnosis is not a unitary state and therefore should show different patterns of EEG activity depending upon the task being experienced. In our evaluation of the literature, enhanced theta is observed during hypnosis when there is task performance or concentrative hypnosis, but not when the highly hypnotizable individuals are passively relaxed, somewhat sleepy and/or more diffuse in their attention (Wikepedia).
