Tag Archives: complicity


By now, you may have seen this:


[…] an “ongoing pattern of disobedient, hostile and defiant behavior,” symptoms include questioning authority, negativity, defiance, argumentativeness, and being easily annoyed.

Here’s why I am angry about authority:

I have a deep sense of having been betrayed.

Everything I have been told by authority since I can remember has tuned out to be a lie.


Were my parents uninformed, deluded, in denial?  I’ll be kind and say that they were misled. I could be more harsh and say that they were complicit, at least through their own willful inattention.  That they were the victims of a poor education, or from having drunk the Koolaid, is a possibility.  But my father grew up within rock-throwing distance of Yale, and my step-mother belonged to a family whose patriarch is alleged to have been involved in MK-Ultra ritual sex abuse circles.

Can I prove that?  No, the references have been scrubbed off the Internet, but his picture grabbed from that article, the one that sent autonomic shivers of recognition down my persona the first time I saw it, still stares out at me from deep inside my hard drive. Was I directly involved?  Not to my conscious knowledge.  Indeed, it can be argued that my step-mother did what she could to keep me safely away from such depredations, and perhaps that is the deep dark inner family secret no one wants to talk about. But she still whupped me regularly, and abused me psychologically, and one person with the requisite experience and knowledge told me one thing she had done went dangerously near a line that no adult should ever cross.

Were my teachers uninformed?  No, but individuals can’t do much in a system in which they are constantly watched, guided, harangued, and given boundaries.

Were my community officials complicit? Perhaps, but complicity is the group norm; otherwise your earning potential, career or lives will be made to suffer. We were all good Germans at one point in time or another.

We were the recipients of that golden glow that emanated from post-World-War-II economics; don’t rock the boat when the sea is still and placid.

Was the truth about the Illuminati and Skull and Bones available to them?  I didn’t learn about this stuff until I was into my 50’s.  Why didn’t they question what had happened in Dallas?  In the kitchen of the Ambassador Hotel? On the balcony of the Lorraine Motel? In the Gulf of Tonkin? The communal elders  dutifully packed their first-born to a quick death or a lifetime of hell on the say-so of an obviously corrupt leadership. Their children did the same a generation later.

The hints that there was a hidden structure to American polity were available, though suppressed and, I’d guess, ridiculed. The experience of American politics and culture has been to move to the middle, to be herded. Although I didn’t discovered it until he died in the late 80’s, my father had two textbooks on propaganda on his bookshelf (neatly titled for the field of public relations).

But the legislative history of the great snookering was available to them; at that point in time, I was still two decades or more from being born, but the creature came out of the seaside swamps where the robber barons secretly gathered (and the requisite legislation) occurred on their watch (albeit with covert means and subterfuge).

[More recently we were told by the Speaker of the House that Congress had to pass the bill in order to know what was in it.]

Off they went to another war, to Federal income taxes, to a debt-based system run by a bunch of foreigners. Emma Lazarus, that sheltered aristocratic Jewish poetess daughter of an Ashkenazi, and Augustus Bartholdi, a French Freemason who married his wife in that same town celebrated by Lazarus in other poems, sold us a trojan horse known as Liberty Enlightening The World.

Lazarus was “an important forerunner of the Zionist movement. She argued for the creation of a Jewish homeland thirteen years before Theodor Herzl began to use the term Zionism.[12]]

Liberty was made gentle, the French themes of revolution and armed mobs having been made to evaporate by the idea’s progenitor, French law professor and politician Édouard René de Laboulaye, according to the history published in 2003.

Authority in the forms of political, social and cultural leadership made it fashionable, even de rigeur, to be something other than what you held yourself out to be.  (This while I attended a school with the motto Nosce Te Ipsum. )

This started with the hypocrisy of the church-goers, extended into those who purported to be of various religions but were really godless and intent on destroying spiritual faith, jumped into the world of politics where it appeared to be (erroneously) an occasional aberration, oozed its way into academia, and finally subsumed politics and diplomacy to the point where the only functional approaches in use today involve theatrical performances of news-making events, and false flags. Open manipulation of personal sovereignty through MK-Ultra-like adaptation of pharmaceutical and psychological/psychiatric intervention was still an unknown but has now come sharply into focus.  On one hand, we have robots to do the work and we have kidnapped and trafficked adolescents to provide sex and other services. The latter, of course, is in the news as a service provided by governmental intelligence operatives to royal families, presidential-caliber politicians, and the like for the mans of controlling them, but I am certain our parents knew of such things; they simply averted their eyes, covered ours, but made available the salacious by-products.

In many cases, our governments have been actively engaged in profiting from and providing to the composers the deadly products of narcotic drugs, the illicit types and those prescribed by the friendly people in white lab coats, samples easily provided in bulk by BigPharma, usually delivered by some handsome and attractive “rep” along with a pricey dinner and some high-class marketing handouts.

“In government, the term authority is often used interchangeably with power. However, their meanings differ: while power is defined as “the ability to influence somebody to do something that he/she would not have done”, authority refers to a claim of legitimacy, the justification and right to exercise that power.”

As children here in the USofA, we were immersed in the history and verbiage of the Declaration of Independence and brought to a state of veneration and worship for it and the government it eventually birthed. Right behind that was an almost equal veneration of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, both now badly eroded to the point of absence, like a barrier beach in the face of waves of assault by people who seized power through stolen elections, subterfuge, and the sheer power of massed money, much of it itself illicitly gotten through investment trickeries, cheating, or flat out control of the system of currency to the point where quarter-million-dollar loans at the rapscallion rate of far less than a percent are given out privately to friends like an extra slosh of a fine wine at a cocktail party in the Hamptons.

No such loan was made available to the commoners, of course; we had to pay 29.9% APR for the several hundreds we charged on one of their credit cards when we had no other choice, and then deal with the humiliation of repeated phone calls from their hired attorney/collector until we acquiesced with a check drawn from savings. But any dumb pumpkin could turn a handsome profit with a quarter-million at 0.0001% interest in a few short weeks, if only by paying off their house instead of being foreclosed upon.

“… authority has become a subject of research in a variety of empirical settings: the family (parental authority), small groups (informal authority of leadership), intermediate organizations such as schools, churches, armies, industries and bureaucracies (organizational and bureaucratic authorities), and society-wide or inclusive organizations….”

Where were these people in the last twenty years? How was their silence and complicity bought? What legitimacy (especially true of the mainstream media) can they now command?  They are apparently all out watching celebrating the use of “naked force exercised on false pretenses” by watching “atrocity porn”

A more recent and immediate example is that the condo manager in the condo-glump where I last resided insisted that solar power hadn’t yet been proven to be of value, but this report is just the most recent indicator that she was lying, incompetent, or at worst uninformed.

To appear to be ignorant while maintaining that others are mentally ill because they are better informed is a sign of duplicitousness, or psychopathology, or self-delusion.



Picking Up the Rhetorical Stave

Why 9-11 Truth is the Only Option

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7IaxHV7DsKg&feature=youtu.be (8:08)

Christopher Bollyn, author of Solving 9-11, picks up his media stave and explains why he thinks 9-11 Truth is the most important political issue of our time. As long as the government and mass media suppress and conceal the truth about what happened on 9-11 the American people will suffer under a criminal regime that lurches from crisis to crisis; from conflict to conflict.


[The video link above was received by e-mail from an unknown source, probably to escape the NSA censors and tinkerers — that’s the world we live in now. I’m posting the video in full knowledge that you the reader may have received your own copy, or that you have seen the video already.

But some of you may not have, and we need an army of rhetorical spear-carriers.

I’m not offended by the apparent but soon clarified anonymity of the e-mail; I’ve been an advocate of close examination of the issues of 9/11 for over a decade now, and that has been regular stated in my blogs for all those years.

Under “medical professionals”, I am signatory here: http://patriotsquestion911.com .

The security state has had me on their radar for 30 years or longer; I was a co-author of the Physicians for Social Responsibility statement about the Civilian-Military Contingency Hospital System (the Pentagon’s plan for how they were going to care for the victims of a limited nuclear war against massed Soviet tanks coming through the Fulda Gap (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fulda_Gap); some people would erroneously assume that I wanted the Russkies to conquer Europe or that I was otherwise soft on Communism.  I lost two successive jobs as a result.




I had studied military tactics through military war-gaming (see http://www.thesullenbell.com/2014/02/28/playing-at-war/ and then http://www.strategypage.com/articles/default.asp?target=WARGHIS2.htm ) and was intensely interested in the challenges of doing the most good for the most people in situations of mass casualties.

The Pentagon’s own theoretical profile of victims included people with radiation burns who would be air-lifted  into East Coast medical transportation and intake networks where demands for intensive nursing and blood supplies would overwhelm the civilian system and bring it to its knees.

It — and its accompanying population relocation plans — were a glimpse into a military decision-making system that was deeply flawed, and was eerily similar to the idea of a missile shield enabling our own first strike.

Sometime later, I had talked to someone in the CIA; they called when they discovered that I had read — in an open intelligence manner — about the use of simulation gaming to train for armored warfare in the run-up to Desert Storm; I simply reached to my bookshelf and gave them the author, the chapter and the book to document the fact that it wasn’t I who had broken the secrecy. (Isn’t it ironic that I went to work for the same fellows after they left that project?)  The security state had probably been tracking me ever since I left the Bay State Special Forces, a volunteer ROTC unit in 1967; hell, given what I know now, they were probably tracking me while I was in the unit as a snot-nosed turnip off the farm truck.

The final line in the first video linked above — it kicks over automatically to book-hawking, and perhaps more — predicates action on our part.

It is one answer — and probably a very important answer — to the question I posed here:


It requires that I re-double my efforts, sharpen the tip of my rhetorical bokken, and make an effort to reach out to my Senators, Congresswoman, local officials in the political supply chain, and most importantly to the media. 

And I’ll have to lead with Bollyn’s last point: 

“Either they stand up for 9/11 Truth or they are complicit in the cover-up.”

They carried only bow staves, or large wooden sticks — the sort used as braces in large casks or handles for hoes — and they marched to musick.
