The Monarch program specifically focused on mind-control and programming. Its main purpose was the research of “Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD)”, the splitting of the mind. In order to do this a variety of immoral methods were employed including drugs, torture, psychology and occult rituals along with forced participation in child pornography and prostitution. The desired result would be an asset that could be used as an assassin, for espionage or military purposes or as sex-slaves and human “cameras”. As Dr. Frank Putnam stated in 1989: “I am struck by the quality of extreme sadism that is reported by most MPD victims. Many multiples have told me of being sexually abused by groups of people, of being forced into prostitution by family members, or of being offered as sexual enticement to their mother’s boyfriends…it becomes obvious that severe, sustained, and repetitive child abuse is a major element in the creation of MPD.”
This subject matter is vast and I simply cannot cover its entirety in one article, but there are others who have written about the satanic abuse of children, the brain-washing and remoulding of victims minds and several lawsuits where recovered recipients managed to successfully prosecute. One of the most famous child sex-slaves is Cathy O’Brian, who in her book “Trans-formation of America”, written by Mark Phillips and herself, tells a lurid tale of mental, sexual and physical abuse used to split her mind and creating MPD. This topic morphs into other areas of great concern including “Sex Rings” and child prostitution and their relationship to powerful people, many being politicians. The recent exposure of British disc-jockey Jimmy Savile (Knighted by the Vatican into the Order of St. Gregory the Great. Thus his allegiance was to the Pope) described by police as a “predatory sex offender” who apparently procured children for the use and then disposal by some very important clients, is a horrendous example.
“In other words, they hate life. That’s pretty clear. They have their own version of life, which is like “death” and that’s where their life is … that’s what they feed off of. I would say that most, if not all, secret societies are based on the same concept. Once you cut through all the paraphernalia and symbology of secret societies, you are basically dealing with people who have, for one reason or another, given up on life completely. They are now into the form of life that is involved with death … that’s their territory. And it’s a pretty horrendous thing to say, but I think that would be borne out.” -The CIA, Mind Control & Children” a talk by Jon Rappoport – CKLN FM 88.1 Ryerson Polytechnic University, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
It is extremely difficult for the average person to both admit and understand that these abuses exist. Most of us know about individual psychopaths such as Jeffrey Dahmer or Ted Bundy, but they fall into the “lone-gunmen” category just like Oswald the “lone-assassin” of JFK. As soon as we consider that there is a link, a common denominator or possibly a conspiracy, the alarm bells go off and we are once again saved from ever considering that some heinous crime lies at the root of these events perpetrated by a group. However, if we consider the fundamentals of an argument we have two general components; premise and then conclusion. As far as premise is concerned, we have concrete proof of the existence of programs under the heading of MK-ULTRA that includes developing MPD “assets”. We know that governments allowed or enacted sterilization, eugenical policies and lobotomies and we have evidence of brain-implants, testing of LSD, brainwashing and other unethical activities.
It is difficult to distinguish between the various programs run by the CIA under the Project MK-ULTRA umbrella as there were many. “Bluebird” focused on the creation of a “Manchurian Candidate”, meaning an agent that carried out covert missions for the CIA (or other agencies) and yet at the same time was unaware of their own actions and could function well in society, both in a private and public capacity. The book written by Richard Condon was subsequently made into a movie starring Frank Sinatra and Laurence Harvey in 1963 and then a remake in 2004 with Denzel Washington and Liev Schreiber. Both were exciting and great entertainment, but, for some of course, it was dismissed as fantasy and the figment of a creative mind. However, it was based on truth.
The CIA were fully engaged in this program in response to the troubling evidence that returning prisoners, following the Korean War, had been brainwashed by the enemy. A declassified CIA memo from 1952 titled “MORI Doc ID: 140401, subject: Special Research, Bluebird” lists the following “…specific problems which can only be resolved by experiment, testing and research…” . They include:
- Can we “condition” by post-H (hypnotic) suggestion agency employees (or persons of interest…) to prevent them from giving information to any unauthorized source or for committing any act on behalf of a foreign or domestic enemy?
- (Can we) induce an H condition in an unwilling subject to such an extent that he will perform an act for our benefit?
- Can we create…an action contrary to an individual’s basic moral principles?
- (Can we) seize a subject and…have him crash an airplane, wreck a train, etc.?
- (Can we) force a subject…to travel long distances, commit specified acts and return to us or bring documents or materials?
- Can we guarantee total amnesia under any and all conditions?
- Can we “alter” a person’s personality?
- How long can we sustain a post-H suggestion – unaided – with reinforcement?
- Is it possible to find a gas that can be used to gain SI control from a gas pencil, odorless, colorless: one shot, etc.?
- How can sodium A or P or any other sleep inducing agent be best concealed in…candy, cigarettes, liqueur, wines, coffee, tea, beer, gum, water, aspirin tablets, common medicines, coke, tooth paste?
This might not be the “Smoking Gun” but it does establish the fact that mind control through abuse, hypnosis and manipulation was/is a reality and a priority of the time. In another declassified CIA document (#190684) dated 7 Jan, 1953 and headed “Outline of Special H Cases”, it gives a full description of two 19 year old girls that had been reprogrammed through hypnosis (H) that led to the creation of multiple personalities. “These subjects have clearly demonstrated that they can pass from a fully awake state to a deep H controlled state…by telephone, by receiving written matter, or by the use of code, signal, or words and that control of those hypnotized can be passed from one individual to another without great difficulty. It has also been shown by experimentation with these girls that they can act as unwilling couriers for information purposes.” -Found at: groups.google.com
The following is taken from the preface of a book written by Carol Rutz titled “A Nation Betrayed – Secret Cold War Experiments Performed on Our Children and Other Innocent People”. It brings together not only the various programs under the MK-ULTRA heading but also confirms the inclusion of MPD. The Preface states:
“The Central Intelligence Agency [CIA] bought my services at the tender age of four from my grandfather in 1952…the next 12 years, I was tested, trained, and used in various ways. Electroshock, drugs, hypnosis, sensory deprivation, and other types of trauma were used to…split my personality (create multiple personalities for specific tasks). Each alter or personality was created to respond to a post-hypnotic trigger, then perform an act and not remember it later. This “Manchurian Candidate” program was just one of the operational uses of the mind control scenario by the CIA…”
Another program included “Learning models will be instituted in which the subject will be rewarded or punished for his overall performance and reinforced in various ways…with electric shock…drugs and psychological tricks will be used to modify his attitudes.” (doc. # 17395). So here we see the use of electroshock for programming (in this case a Manchurian candidate) and later this was used to cure depression. A versatile tool no question, and establishes that doctors and psychiatrists employing electroshock as a treatment of a mental disorders where probably gathering data for more covert and sinister purposes.
“The major goal of the Cold War mind control programs was to create dissociative symptoms and disorders, including full multiple personality disorder. The capabilities postulated in the first Manchurian Candidate are fact, not fiction, and were created by the CIA in the 1950’s under BLUEBIRD and ARTICHOKE… Experiments with LSD, sensory deprivation, electro-convulsive treatment, brain electrode implants and hypnosis were designed to create amnesia, depersonalization, changes in identity and altered states of consciousness.” -The C.I.A. Doctors: Human Rights Violations by American Psychiatrists” by Colin A. Ross
“Artichoke” appears to be similar to “Bluebird”, all of which fell under the MK-ULTRA canopy or earlier programs such as BLACKBIRD. Artichoke focused on “special interrogation methods” through the use of hypnosis, drugs and torture. Once hypnotized the subject entered a highly suggestive state and thus could be exploited. Often morphine or similar drugs were used in an attempt to create forced addiction followed by withdrawal. Later the CIA would turn to LSD as its drug of choice. -The Warrior
“…ARTICHOKE was the CIA’S cryptonym for the study and/or use of special interrogation methods…included hypnosis, drugs and total isolation. It grew out of the Agency’s Operation BLACKBIRD and was a forerunner to the Agency’s MKULTRA…mind control techniques experiments attempted to induce amnesia…the use of hypnosis, forced morphine addiction, forced morphine addiction withdrawal, along with other drugs, chemicals, and techniques…to see if it was possible to produce a “Manchurian Candidate… 1954 CIA report asks… “Can an individual of [redacted] descent be made to perform an act of attempted assassination involuntarily under the influence of ARTICHOKE?” –Found at: BACM RESEARCH – paperless archives.com
