Crimes of Mena

As I mentioned in the two previous posts, I’m revisiting research I did over a decade ago thanks to the ‘blockbuster movie’ with Tom Cruise (American Made) about the story of a small airport in western Arkansas that was implicated in the transport of weapons and drugs during the Iran-Contra hearings.  We already got another Hollywood version of the story in a made-for-TV movie starring Dennis Hopper, but it’s such a good one I guess they couldn’t resist to rehash it once again.

Mena was only one of several locales in the region involved, but it was the one that got the most press, by far.  Here in a town of only 5,000, in a ‘dry county’ (alcohol prohibition), in the lovely Ouachita mountains, a tiny speck on the map, was a cornerstone piece of a conspiracy spanning now seven Washington administrations.

Instead of results, we get a banana republic.  Instead of the truth, we get Hollywood films.  Instead of accountability, the perpetrators and traitors get promotions.  Instead of safer streets and communities, we get drugs and weapons through tiny Bible belt towns.  Nothing has changed.

And like any good conspiracy, the web of truth and lies is as twisted as any Gordian knot.  The agendas and accusations fly as high and fast as old Barry’s Fat Lady, his infamous airplane shot down in Nicaragua and traced back to the then named, Rich Mountain Aviation, Mena, AR.

The cost of living an exciting life is high.” Barry Seal

Indeed it is, for Seal as well because, spoiler alert, he gets killed, they say by Medillin cartel hit men.  I do not know which of whose versions of what really happened and I doubt few others do either.  That’s how conspiracies are designed to work, like a maze full of traps of misinformation, to keep folks speculating for generations to come.  So they can keep selling box office hits to keep the scoffers and the coffers pumping. As long as nothing really changes.

Most likely, the major figure in this case, Terry Reed, ex-CIA agent and whistleblower, was being factual when he wrote in his confessional tome Compromised: Clinton, Bush and the CIA that: “Believing Mena to be a major drug-smuggling mecca because of Seal’s cover as a trafficker, a state police investigator would later testify that stake out operations at the Mena airport by a joint task force included even agents from the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. Nothing had been accomplished, because they did not realize that the CIA used Seal as a diversion to distract them from what was really happening at Nella, just under their noses 12 miles away. And, by the time the stakeout even began, the training operations at Nella had already been shut down and some of those involved at Nella were being groomed for bigger and better opportunities in Mexico. (198)”

What happens each time a new exciting, glamorous high crimes story is rehashed, it shifts the “Overton Window.” From Wikipedia: “The Overton window is an approach to identifying which ideas define the domain of acceptability within a democracy’s possible governmental policies. Proponents of policies outside the window seek to persuade or educate the public in order to move and/or expand the window. Proponents of current policies, or similar ones, within the window seek to convince people that policies outside it should be deemed unacceptable.”

Instead of outrage, we’re used to it now.  Drugs for weapons, weapons for drugs, no biggie. Yes, we all know the government is involved, old news.  The War on Drugs? You mean where street users are thrown to the wolves of the prison industrial complex? Yes, yes, we know already.

Recently I was thumbing through the comments section of a YouTube clip on Mena which quipped, this old story is like ‘conspiracy light’ compared to what’s going on today.

I unfortunately agree.  But I think I’ll keep posting on it a bit longer anyway.  Maybe it will help one more person to see what we are really dealing with here in our government and how the world really is run by tribal warfare and mafia-style conspiracies while the mass of men continue sleeping. or playing along.

The Mena Connection

In the summer of 2006 I spent considerable time researching the Mena connection to the Iran-Contra affair and sent many letters to various people involved as well as to Reader’s Digest and other publications for a chance to cover the story for them.

Here is one of many I wrote to Washington officials, which I now believe is the reason I was put on some kind of ‘watch list,’ requiring me to get double and triple screened at the airport. I stopped flying immediately once I realized these searches were not ‘random’ as I’d been repeatedly told.

Senator Jim Leach
2186 Rayburn House Office Bldg
Washington, D.C. 20510

Dear Senator Leach,

First, I would like to thank you for the many years of work you have dedicated to office in order to further the social amelioration of our country and make our political arena a more just and honorable institution.

I am writing to you as a concerned citizen in regards to the investigation on Mena, AR conducted while you were Chairman of the House Banking Committee. At that time, I applauded your diligence in pursuing the matter of the train murders and their subsequent cover-up and entanglement with the Iran-Contra affair after no fewer than eight state and federal investigations had been dropped. I felt so strongly that your honesty and integrity would triumph no matter who was learned to be at fault, in other words, I thought you had a non-partisan commitment to this issue.

I know you can understand my disappointment in learning that your investigation has also been dropped and this terrible series of crimes continues to be unsolved and its perpetrators unpunished. I have contacted your office several times to try to find the reason behind this dismissal despite the years and millions spent to bring it to justice. I was finally told by a quite impertinent staffer of yours, named Mr. Greg Wierzynski, that if no report has been published than it is none of my business and that if I feel far too much money was wasted in all these fruitless investigations that were started and never finished than this was ‘just my opinion.’

Why were there years of research conducted by Steve Ganis never completed? Why, as a tax-paying citizen, do I have no right to such information as he was able to un cover? And how could so many investigations be started and never finished if in fact there is nothing to hide?

Honorable sir, do you really want your name attached to another incomplete and unpublished investigation for all of history? Do you really think the future citizens of the country will leave such a scandal permanently undisclosed? Do you not worry about the political climate we are handing down to our children—one that is wrought with bi-partisan criminals go unpunished because they are above the law? It is very hard for me to imagine that a man who has dedicated his life to politics did so not out of any sense of moral or social duty, but rather for some other, and therefore far less honorable, reason.

This scandal touched so many Americans on so many levels and to see it continually ignored by every administration is no less than heartbreaking. It makes me afraid for the world, and very frankly, ashamed to call myself an American.

Thank you for your time and consideration, honorable senator.

(I was one small voice in an enormous sea of outrage. My deep gratitude to those actual journalists, investigators, whistleblowers who provided all the content for researching this subject. I will give them credit wherever I know who they are over these series of posts.)

A good documentary to start with some of those biggest names and efforts:

 

 

Science Fraud & Fantasy (part 5)

Last night I had a nightmare, very short but very vivid. I was looking at a red-headed young girl standing in a corner. She had quite a blank expression and I don’t think I knew her. I approached her with my hands outstretched and said “I’m going to kill you!” I took a step forward, as if I was going to strangle her, it was like something right out of a bad movie, and I felt in that moment like I was an actor, and she looked back at me as if she knew I was acting. Then I suddenly had a gripping dread come over me for a second, like I was being smothered by an immense force across my chest, and that woke me up. I was breathless and terrified.

I have often had intense dreams, as long as I can remember. I’ve even had a couple of ‘prophetic’ dreams. Not too long ago, when I first started working with the Tarot cards, I dreamt of the Star card, then drew that card three times in a row. I have often wondered what wisdom lies just beneath the surface of our consciousness, what is imagination exactly, what creates moments of seemingly unbelievable synchronicity? How are the ‘breadcrumbs’ of these ‘little’ things influencing my life and choices?

Maybe you’re thinking now, what on earth does any of this hoo-ha have to do with science? I would suggest if that’s what you are thinking to begin with the works of Jon Ronson, including of course his very popular Men Who Stare at Goats. I would especially advise reading his work after you’ve read “The Art of War” by Sun Tzu. All warfare is based on deception. The purpose of war is peace. The goal is to win without ever needing to fight.

Our entire fields of science and technology have developed out of creating better weapons. Better weapons to spy, better weapons to fight.

Here’s just a short list of why I don’t trust scientists.

–The Manhattan Project
–MK Ultra
–Testicular transplant experimentation on 500 prisoners at San Quentin
–The Holocaust experimentation
–forced sterilization of Carrie Buck
–Rockefeller Institute Rhoads cancer experiments on Puerto Ricans
–Tuskegee syphilis experiments
–Atomic Energy Commission “Green Run”.
–Hepatitis vaccine experiments on the mentally disabled.
–Human Radiation Experiments
–“Chemtrails” obviously

I could go on and on, but thanks to John Hall, I’ll point you to his book: Guinea Pigs: Technologies of Control.

I am very committed at the moment to explore all the work of Michael Tsarion.  I’ve been dabbling in it for several years, but I turn to it with a new level of commitment now.  I trust him more than many others for the specific reason mentioned a few posts ago—those who emplore me to do my own research, and provide the framework for me to do that, deserve far more consideration than those who do not.

I deeply align with and appreciate the vast scope of his work, bringing ancient subjects into immediate worldly relevance, as in this recent recording about pyschic vampirism (aka: extreme narcissism).https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GPb-4W0mA_k

What resonates so much with me about his work right now is his consistent focus on providing the ‘building blocks’ as he says—he works in the wisdom of the origins because from it we can ourselves become empowered by them and rebuild culture with them.

“It’s not about handing out solutions,” he says. I couldn’t agree more. Solutions are useless in the hands of a mankind without the skills and capacities to use them. This is a fundamental truth it seems the New Age movement is trying to hijack and reframe for the masses and I deeply mistrust anyone trying to push proverbial lodestones. And that goes for ‘real’ ones too.

One of our dog is missing now for over 24 hours. I’m quite attached to this old hooligan. Let’s test “The Secret” theory, the Law of Attraction as it’s being sold by The Shift and other New Age nonsense. I’ve already been imagining him returning to us safely, for about 12 hours now. Every hour, I imagine it with all the love and care and gushing which comes quite easily to me. I am imagining it over and over, how I adore him, how I love even his quirks and sassiness and can’t wait to hug him again and cook him his favorite eggs and chicken supper.  And how funny and expressive his different gestures are, and how he likes to sneeze on us in the morning in bed, and nuzzle up and snore and snortly loudly with delightful abandon.

 OK, universe, now deliver him back to me.  I’m waiting with great intention.

In the meantime, a not-to-be-missed presentation by Dane Wigington about the immense harms being caused to our environment by geo-engineering.

 

Greenwashing the Globe

I was duped and that’s maddening, not to mention a bit humiliating too.

When I first heard of Globalism I was an avid world traveler fancying I could make it as a travel writer. I remember seeing some anti-globalist picketers in front of a large bank in some major European city and thinking “Wow, these folks are really afraid of McDonalds!”

I was no big fan myself, but didn’t consider any differing perspectives or a bigger picture than “Don’t they realize how much more pleasant it is for us travelers to use ATMs and credit cards all over the world rather than deal with cash or Traveler’s Cheques?

How very naïve I was and what a difference a decade can make. I imagined global government meant a global democracy. Really! What a slap in the face it was to witness the U.S. become far more like the formerly Soviet-bloc countries I’d known.

I remember once on an overnight train ride through a few countries in Eastern Europe I was awoken five times by fierce agents in differing uniforms to “Show your papers!”

It seemed so absurd to me, so pointless and paranoid.  Not to mention how very annoying it was to have to perform this ritual throughout my sleepless night.

Then I got repeatedly frisked in my country’s own airports—required to go barefoot on filthy floors and to strip to my tank top in front of hundreds of passengers.  I watched as cities transformed for military operations, boiled as I learned about the mass surveillance, screamed when I heard about the force-feeding of GMOs, and just when I thought it couldn’t possibly get any darker, yes quite naive once again, darker indeed it got—it’s called Global Dimming, http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/sun/ and it’s part of the on-going global climate manipulation.

The spin agents in the mainstream media want to make it look, at best, like beneficial progress harmless to humanity and, at worst, as if it’s all one giant conspiracy theory invented by inconvenient crazies.

But how can any mind dismiss it all when it just doesn’t add up? When the military says one thing, and the weathermen another, and the public officials, the experts, the alternative media, social media are all aglow with speculation and hype, yet, it’s never on the mainstream news.  Surely any rational mind revolts and roars–Something is very wrong indeed!

It requires extensive independent research to unravel. Luckily these days that can be done from the comfort of your bed or kitchen or living room. That may not be the case for much longer.

The mainstream media would have us think normal contrails are crisscrossing the sky at various locations around the entire globe. Greenpeace calls it a conspiracy theory.  I actually volunteered for them once upon a time.  Arghhh!

So, Greenpeace, we are to think the pilots are simply bored and playing Tic-Tac-Toe up there?

Please folks, I’m begging y’all here.  Help us do the research and raise awareness. If we all stop being so naïve and self-focused and do a bit of study on behalf of future generations, we just might be able to take back control of our skies and our lives.

Thanks to the tireless work of so many the initial research can now be as easy as watching some Youtube videos. This is a new series that’s very approachable called In the Garden with Max Bliss.

And a few quotes to inspire your resolve. Thanks for reading y’all, please take action.

The concept of national sovereignty has been immutable,
indeed a sacred principle of international relations.
It is a principle which will yield only slowly and reluctantly to
the new imperatives of global environmental cooperation.

UN Commission on Global Governance report

“Democracy is not a panacea. It cannot organize everything and
it is unaware of its own limits. These facts must be faced squarely.
Sacrilegious though this may sound, democracy is no longer well
suited for the tasks ahead. The complexity and the technical nature
of many of today’s problems do not always allow elected
representatives to make competent decisions at the right time.

Club of Rome,
The First Global Revolution

Regionalism must precede globalism.
We foresee a seamless system of governance from
local communities, individual states, regional unions
and up through to the United Nations itself
.”
UN Commission on Global Governance

The goal now is a socialist, redistributionist society,
which is nature’s proper steward and society’s only hope
.”
David Brower,
founder of Friends of the Earth

I don’t think it is possible under capitalism

I have yet to hear a single politician currently in office discuss Geoengineering in public, yet it’s all over social media in a multitude of languages.  hmmmm . . .

 

Debating, Deflecting or Directing?

I’ve been avoiding the elections because I know they are akin to pro-wrestling for the educated, and the NBC pre-debate warm-up comparing it to a sporting match demonstrates this is a common enough perception.

I don’t watch them, I don’t like them, I don’t trust them.  Still, I found myself watching, as I suspect many others as well. According to reports it was the most watched ever, or some such hype.

It was as dull as I expected it to be, but I was watching with a smart little cyber group that made it more palatable. Almost nothing stuck out too much for me except that the Republican wore blue and sat on the left and the Democrat on the right wore red, obviously expressly set that way, thanks to their handlers’ designs.  And, I noticed that she looked much better than in previous weeks, thanks to botox and make-up so mask-like it made her face nearly expressionless, which exaggerated his already clownish expressions.

I kept thinking, what exactly am I watching here? What is the purpose of this debate?

Then, snap, it came, in their moment of comraderie and agreement: The Terror Watch List.

https://thinkprogress.org/clinton-trump-debate-terror-watch-list-1ad0a47c431c#.5a4padql4

Of course we can all agree that guns should not go to folks on government watch lists! Right?

Did y’all catch that too?

Do you know who is on those lists? Do you know how we got there? Do you know we can’t get off them without personal sponsorship from an FBI agent? Do you know we are not told why we are on one of these lists or even that we are on one? Do you know who has access to these lists?  Did you realize the vast majority of folks on those lists have never been convicted of a crime, let alone accused of one?

Quite probably millions of innocent people are on these lists, which are shared between government agencies and corporations of all sorts. There is little besides our surveillance state and the Federal Reserve that is more an example of our oligarichal, totalitarian, neo-fascist control grid besides these completely unconstitutional lists.

I am on one. Are you? Would you even know? Would you like to know how to find out?
