This past summer brought us yet another sex scandal involving a highly placed military personage, Army Major General David Haight. Haight was a decorated combat veteran and family man who held a key post at the U.S. European Command, the Pentagon’s frontline bulwark against Russia.
“He also led a double life,” reported “USA Today” journalist Tom Vanden Brook. “An 11-year affair and a ‘swinger lifestyle’ of swapping sexual partners that put him at risk of blackmail and espionage, according to interviews and documents. Jennifer Armstrong, 49, a government employee, said she and Haight had been involved in a torrid love affair that began more than ten years ago in Baghdad and ended this spring. Badly.”
Armstrong told USA Today that the relationship began with a “flirty email” and ended after assignations with multiple partners at swingers’ clubs, hotels and her home.
How Haight maintained his intimate secret is unclear, Brook’s report continued. His superiors promoted him three times since his affair with Armstrong began.
“Screeners of officials for security clearances,” writes Brook, “particularly those trusted with access to the nation’s most sensitive information, like Haight, scrutinize financial and family stability to guard against vulnerability to bribes or blackmail. If an adversary such as Russia had learned of Haight’s affair and sexual adventures, he would have been a prime target to blackmail, said four senior government officials who were not authorized to speak publicly about the matter.”
But perhaps there is something darker afoot here, something that goes beyond the sexual transgressions of a high-ranking military official and the subsequent negative publicity Haight received. One should perhaps view the story through the much-maligned prism of political analysis called Conspiracy Theory, which encompasses everything from the machinations of the UFO cover-up to tales of a secret government operating in close cooperation with the alien presence.
According to editor and publisher Timothy Green Beckley, the CIA has, from its inception, tried to manipulate public opinion on a variety of subjects, to include, of course, UFOs.
“They have often operated in an underhanded way without even a glimmer of full and public disclosure on the vital subject of UFOs,” Beckley said. “And even though the CIA is supposed to deal only with international espionage, it is no secret that they conduct domestic surveillance programs all the time – to the detriment of the American people.
“The CIA has even falsely claimed to be responsible for certain UFO sightings reports,” Beckley continued, “by ‘revealing’ that what people were seeing were actually the agency’s own drone aircraft sent up to gather various forms of intelligence, as well as the early rumblings of the Stealth bomber being pressed into early ‘practice runs.’ But their ‘spy-craft’ were operating at very high altitudes and had nothing to do with the multitude of sightings and landings that took place much lower in the atmosphere.”
As Beckley is quick to point out, many of the objects being encountered in the late 1940s, the 50s and early 60s were structured aircraft of various shapes and sizes and definitely not of the earthly variety.
“They had the earmarks of the Ultra-Terrestrial all over them,” he argued. “And, remember, we are also talking about face-to-face meetings and encounters with little men and humanoid creatures that ‘invaded’ Terra Firma on a global basis.
“Some conspiracy theorists,” Beckley continued, “also harbor suspicions that the CIA and other official agencies might have masqueraded as ETs in a sort of ‘pretend,’ perverted alien abduction scenario in order to point the finger – boney as it might be – away from their own misconduct. Some of the sexual contact – forced or ‘consensual’ – between supposed aliens and abducted earthlings could have been staged by CIA cohorts-in-crime as a means to disavow any involvement in rape and torture ‘experiments,’ if that’s what you wish to call them.”
It is sometimes even claimed that the alien abduction phenomenon is really a human-run program of mind control and genetic experimentation, which serves to explain why some abductees recall being forced into sex with complete strangers by their captors and witness people in military garb rather than the more typical gray aliens.
The admittedly “beyond controversial” subjects of mind control and sexual slavery are dealt with surprisingly rationally in a book from Beckley’s Global Communications. It’s been said that paranoia can be entertaining, but perhaps that is still inadequate to describe this particular tome, which pushes past some barriers in ways that the reader may have trouble dealing with.
The book is called “Mind Controlled Sex Slaves and the CIA: A Collection of Essays and Interviews about Project MONARCH.” Project MONARCH is an outgrowth of the better known MK-ULTRA program of mind control experiments begun during the early years of the Cold War and first brought to public awareness in the congressional hearings conducted by Senator Frank Church in the mid-1970s.
Through Church’s efforts, the stunned electorate learned, among other things, about CIA experiments that sought to discover whether LSD could be used to aid the interrogations process. The idea was that perhaps the anxiety of a “bad trip” could frighten even the most tightlipped subject into submission or induce such confusion of mind that it became impossible to keep a lie properly assembled for one’s interrogators.
In his introduction to “Mind Controlled Sex Slaves and the CIA,” well-known paranormal journalist Nick Redfern provides an excellent history of what is publicly known about the CIA’s mind control experimentation, and any reader unfamiliar with the subject can be quickly brought up to speed on the basics.
The real meat of the book, however, is in the interviews conducted by journalist and author Tracy Twyman about Project MONARCH, which she says is a super-secret program to kidnap and “brainwash” children for use as sexual slaves, both to service the politically elite and for various kinds of espionage.
Twyman says the program was initially imported from Nazi Germany as part of Operation Paperclip, in which President Harry Truman authorized the smuggling of such top Nazi scientists as Wernher von Braun into the U.S. to work for the military and intelligence community and, eventually, for NASA. The newly acquired knowledge of mind control techniques had come from experiments on prisoners in Nazi concentration camps. The Third Reich’s scientists had studied the effects of the calculated used of torture, drugs, hypnotism, electroshock and sleep deprivation on an individual personality.
The result they achieved was the fragmenting of the personality into separate components which are unaware of each other. This creates what is known today as “Multiple Personality Disorder,” or by the more recent, clinically accepted term, “Dissociative Identity Disorder.” Once separated from one another, the individual personality components could then be programmed to perform certain tasks, much like a computer.
Twyman quotes former FBI agent and mind control expert Ted Gunderson: “It’s a combination of torture, hypnosis and drugs. What happens is, they torture them so much that their personality splits in order to endure the pain and misery. When their personality splits, they become another person. It’s through this technique that they train them.”
According to Gunderson, such methods could create “Manchurian candidates,” unwitting agents of espionage who could courier sensitive messages and even commit assassinations against their will without any conscious recollection of those events.
“Although clearly unethical,” Twyman writes, “such practices were justified by the CIA under the belief that the Soviets, America’s new archenemy, already possessed such covert weaponry of the mind.”
Former CIA Director William Colby is alleged to have told former Nebraska state senator and author John DeCamp that, after the Korean War, the CIA and the U.S. government were “terrified” of the mind control abilities of China, Russia and North Korea. It was decided that the U.S. could not afford to be left behind and that for the very salvation of the country it was imperative to keep up. And so millions and billions were poured into these programs.
“But when all is said and done,” Colby added, “we were never behind and we aren’t today.”
Twyman writes that several self-proclaimed victims of mind control have stated that the U.S. is really AHEAD of the game and that the CIA’s motivation was never strictly “for the good of the country.” She cites the rumored existence of the aforementioned Project MONARCH, the alleged offshoot of MK-ULTRA, designed to create legions of so-called “mind-controlled sex slaves” for use by the rich and powerful.
“The value of a mind-controlled sex slave is multifaceted,” she explains. “For one thing, they can be used to satisfy the perversions of people in positions of power without jeopardizing that power, since a person under mind control is not likely to expose the event to public scrutiny. Furthermore, these encounters can be videotaped for the purpose of blackmailing public officials and businessmen should they at any time step out of line or do anything to endanger the intelligence community’s global plan. Some people who purport the existence of Project MONARCH might also believe that the CIA is under the control of the Illuminati ‘New World Order’ conspiracy of global domination.
“Then there is the financial aspect,” Twyman continues. “A sex slave can be prostituted from childhood on to wealthy individuals who will pay large sums of money for the experience. They can also be used in child pornography to be sold on the global market. Many MONARCH ‘survivors’ claim that unwanted, expendable sex slaves are picked to star in the most controversial pictures of all – snuff films, the existence of which has yet to be proven, according to the FBI. The slaves are also, say the stories, used as drug mules for the CIA’s secret trafficking of illegal substances.”
The money derived from these black market transactions of drugs and sex is used, according to Twyman’s sources, to fund the CIA’s many top secret and under-budgeted black projects, as well as simply to enrich the perpetrators.
Potential slaves are chosen for their genetic propensity for suggestibility, hypnotize-ability, dissociation and high intelligence. Over the past several years, a number of these so-called “survivors” have “recovered” their memories and gone public about their past abuse at the hands of the government. Twyman pays particular attention to a woman named Cathy O’Brien and O’Brien’s book “The TRANCE Formation of America.”
O’Brien’s “pedophile” father allegedly first began to train her sexually.
“Cathy claims to have come from a family of multigenerational incest perpetrators,” Twyman recounts, “where Daddy abused all of the kids and all of the kids abused each other. Growing up in Muskegon, Michigan, a ‘pedophile capital,’ according to Cathy, it wasn’t long before Cathy’s father was whoring her around for use in lucrative child pornography.”
In time, Mr. O’Brien was caught, but what happened next strains belief, even for die-hard conspiracy theorists. Instead of going to jail, he was visited, says Cathy, by a prominent politician whose name is better left to those who actually read Twyman’s book.
The politician made an offer that Mr. O’Brien couldn’t refuse: sell Cathy into the MONARCH program and receive immunity from prosecution. The CIA viewed Cathy as a prime candidate because they knew that any child who had been sexually abused to that extent would be suffering from the standard dissociative disorder that would make her a susceptible target for mind control.
Cathy said her father spent two weeks at Harvard University learning how to continue raising his daughter to serve as part of MONARCH.
At that point, Cathy claims to have been prostituted to a long list of high-ranking officials, to include prime ministers, U.S. senators and others whose names I won’t repeat here. Cathy further claims to have been forced to engage in strange perversions, which again are better left unnamed.
“One of the consistencies that runs through almost all of the personal testimonies of the self-proclaimed MONARCH victims,” Twyman writes, “is the use of the occult and Satanism as a ‘trauma base.’ Cathy O’Brien vividly describes the ‘Rite to Remain Silent’ she claims she endured at St. Francis of Assisi Church in Muskegon, a reversal of the Catholic mass in which she was allegedly doused in the blood of a freshly-slaughtered lamb and made to take an oath of secrecy. She also claims to have witnessed human sacrifices at Bohemian Grove retreat, an exclusive retreat for global movers and shakers who meet on a private island every year in secret. They dress up in bizarre costumes and indulge in their most extreme perversions with mind-controlled ‘Stepford whores,’ much like scenes from the Stanley Kubrick film ‘Eyes Wide Shut.’”
The claims of mind control and MONARCH programming are an extension of the tales told about Satanic Ritual Abuse that began to surface in the early 1980s, Twyman writes. The SRA phenomenon has largely been discredited by the mental health establishment but continues to be a strange kind of “urban myth” for many people.
“Many groups, several of them affiliated with Protestant churches,” she says, “believe in a large conspiracy of Satanists that spans the globe and which controls the drug and child pornography industry (i.e., the Mafia), as well as, to the view of many, the government (i.e., the Illuminati). They believe that these people engage in the large-scale abduction and abuse of thousands of children for use in their sick, sadistic, satanic sex rituals and the pornographic documentation thereof. When not from multigenerational satanic families, like O’Brien’s, where their parents willingly submit them to the MONARCH program, children are supposedly snatched off the streets – the familiar milk carton kids. According to the lore, the conspirators even infiltrate pre-schools and day care centers to access children there.”
Twyman quotes the aforementioned Gunderson thusly: “The satanic cult movement dovetails with U.S. intelligence. In addition to being involved in kidnapping, they were taking kids out of Boys Town and foster homes and orphanages and flying them to Washington, D.C., for sex orgy parties with congressmen and senators. We’re talking about a large-scale pedophile ring and a large-scale kidnapping ring known as ‘The Finders.’ It’s a CIA covert operation running out of Washington, D.C. That’s just a cover name for finding children.”
Several of Tywman’s sources claim that a former Green Beret officer and senior U.S. military intelligence officer, Lt. Col. Michael Aquino, was involved in their abuse. Aquino took an active part in several “PSY-OPS,” or psychological warfare operations, and publicly advocated the use of propaganda, subliminal messages, air ionization and ELF waves (i.e., putting low frequency signals in TV and radio broadcasts to induce specific states of mind) in times of war, both domestically and abroad, in order to manipulate public opinion.
“Another interesting fact about Michael Aquino,” Twyman writes, “is that he just happens to be the founder and leader of the Temple of Set, a splinter group of the Church of Satan, in which Aquino was once a high-ranking member. The Temple of Set now has a number of chapters that operate on military bases. This group’s rituals often involve Nazi symbols and rhetoric, and Aquino once performed a satanic ‘working’ at Heinrich Himmler’s castle in Wewelsburg while in Germany on ‘official NATO business.’”
In the late 1980s, an abuse scandal surfaced at a day care center on the Presidio military base in San Francisco, where Aquino was stationed. The children identified Aquino and claimed that the people who molested them were part of a “devil worship club.” They were able to describe the inside of Aquino’s home, where the abuse was said to have taken place. Aquino was also said to keep a ranch in Colorado that was a “safe house” for kidnapped children.
Twyman spoke to Aquino about the accusations.
“Throughout my entire career as an Army officer (1968-1994),” he said, “I never encountered any evidence of anything named or resembling ‘Project MONARCH,’ never participated in anything involving children or adult ‘sex slaves,’ never abused any children under any circumstances whatever, and never had contact with any of the cranks who’ve thrown my name around with ‘MONARCH.’”
Aquino’s use of the word “cranks” to describe his accusers illustrates one of the ironies of Project MONARCH and other mind control operations. Having had one’s mind toyed with over a period of several years understandably makes for disjointed, fragmentary testimony from victims. It’s easy to call such people crazy since they have in fact suffered years of personality-altering torture and sexual abuse. Also, given the fact that extremely high levels of government secrecy may be involved, there is no one who can come forward and validate the bizarre claims of the victims.
It goes without saying that Twyman provides only “anecdotal evidence,” simply retelling the various stories as they were told to her. But as the late alien abduction researcher, Budd Hopkins, once told me, anecdotal evidence is enough to convict someone in a court of law. Even when a DNA sample is used in evidence during a trial, the jury does not “see” the DNA testing results. They merely listen to a DNA expert TELL THEM A STORY about those results. The point being, one should not automatically dismiss anecdotal evidence as being unreliable.
In any case, Twyman has certainly done her homework in “Mind Controlled Sex Slaves and the CIA,” which is packed with her interviews with both victims of sexual slavery and experts in mind control and deprogramming. While she has not produced any sort of “smoking gun”-type documentation, the book is nevertheless an interesting read for those not too faint of heart to bear up under its shocking revelations about some of the famous names that are accused within its pages.
