Project MK-Ultra & Dr. Ewen Cameron "stole my mother away from me"

‘They stole my mother from me. They used her as a human guinea pig. They stripped her of her emotions’

    

On October 9, 1957, Dr. Ewen Cameron, a Scottish-born psychiatrist and director of the Allan Memorial Institute at McGill University in Montreal noted that his 33-year-old patient, Jean Steel, was on her 23rd day of drug-induced sleep.

Steel had undergone four electroconvulsive shock-therapy treatments. Several more were planned. In previous days, while awake, she had shown some aggressiveness toward staff, behaviour Cameron felt needed to be “broken up.”

He wondered whether it might be useful for her to watch a “movie where hostility was well expressed,” as a way of working out her own “hostilities.” A librarian was tasked with finding something suitable. She had not been weighed in several weeks. Temperature recordings were taken of her “earlobes and feet.”

“Once the patient is de-patterned we will start psychic driving,” Cameron wrote. “She is rather restive and antagonistic when awake, but not nearly as difficult as she was when she started.”

Garnet Steel met Jean Watts in Montreal in the 1940s. He was in the army. She liked to dance. He called her “Jeanie.” They fell in love, married, honeymooned in New York City and settled in the Eastern Townships south of Montreal. They played bridge, curled and had loads of friends.

    

The couple had a child who died a few months after birth, but in 1952 they had another, a daughter named Alison. She was healthy and gorgeous, but Jeanie found she couldn’t cope. She sank into a sadness that wouldn’t lift. Her parents back in Montreal began asking around. They heard about this Dr. Cameron at the Allan, a past-president of the American Psychiatric Association. They heard he was the best. Jeanie Steel was admitted to the AMI for treatment on May 1, 1957.

“What they did to my mother was torture,” Alison Steel, now 65, says from Knowlton, Que. “It is horrific. It is unbelievable.”

    

What wasn’t publicly known in 1957, and what would not be revealed until decades later, was that Cameron’s work at AMI was funded in part by the Central Intelligence Agency as part of Project MK-Ultra, a covert program in human mind control – brainwashing.

Panic seized the United States at the conclusion of the Korean War in 1953. Some in Congress feared returning American POWs had been brainwashed by their Chinese captors, transforming patriotic GIs into zombie sleeper agents, waiting to be activated by their Communists masters. Newspaper stories fanned the hysteria.

“The totalitarians have misused the knowledge of how the mind works for their own purposes,” a Dutch psychologist wrote in the New York Times Magazine. “They have applied the Pavlovian technique – in a far more complex and subtle way, of course – to produce the reflex of mental and political submission of the humans in their power.”

Cameron, the visionary, believed schizophrenia and some other mental illnesses could be cured. (Jeanie Steel likely suffered from postpartum depression.) He dismissed the idea of a psychiatrist’s couch, a doctor listening and talking a patient back to health. His ambition was to remake the person entirely, scrubbing their brain of its illness and rebuilding their psyche from scratch.

To do so, patients would need to be “de-patterned,” Cameron-speak for loading them full of drugs – Seconal, Nembutal, largactal, insulin, LSD, PCP, uppers, downers, curare and more – and subjecting them to massive, repeated jolts of electroshock therapy. Patients were kept in drug-induced comas for 22 hours a day in a “sleep room,” primed for Cameron’s “psychic driving,” a process where a message, or even a single word, was broadcast on a loop over a loudspeaker in the room for days on end.

    

Jeanie Steel did 18- and 29-day stints in the sleep room. At different points, according to her file – of which Alison obtained a copy from the Canadian Department of Justice in 2015 – she threatened to kill herself; asked the doctors to “please” turn down the loudspeaker; complained of burning in her ears and feet; and screamed that she felt like she was being nailed to the “cross.”

One of Cameron’s entries in the file from October 1957 notes: “Patient walked about room this morning, out in the hall, appears more restless than previously, stared at the speaker and said, ‘That thing up there, up on the wall, my ear is burning, my ear is not burning. But that tries to make up my mind. That’s not my mind. Is that my mind?'”

Jeanie was discharged from the institute in December 1957. She went home to her family, destroyed after a total of six months in Dr. Cameron’s care. She died in 2002. Dr. Cameron went on to become the president of the World Psychiatric Association, dying of a heart attack while hiking in 1967.

Alison Steel keeps a manila folder full of her mother’s papers and old photographs. Her favourite image of Jeanie is from before she was born. Her hazel eyes are wide, and her auburn hair cut to the shoulder.

“She looks like an angel,” Steel says. “But I never got to know that person. They stole my mother from me. They used her as a human guinea pig. They stripped her of her emotions.”

    

In the years after 1957, Jeanie would spend hours sitting in the dark, or in her room. When she drove, she kept the flicker on to keep her “company.” She once arranged all the patio furniture outside, placing sticks wrapped in tinfoil on the chairs, declaring it was Sherbrooke Street. She spray-painted a white living room ceiling in red swirls, and spray-painted the toilet seat silver.

Alison couldn’t ask her mother for advice; she had nothing to give. She was present – she would make grilled cheese sandwiches for her daughter and her friends – but never fully there.

“My mom could talk to me about her life before this happened to her,” Steel says. “But she couldn’t talk about what happened to her. I didn’t know where her mind was.”

In 2015 Alison Steel initiated a legal action against the Canadian government, which also funded the experiments. A few months ago, she received a $100,000 settlement. “It wasn’t about the money,” she says. “I was seeking justice for my mother – and my father. They had been young and happy.”

Garnet Steel passed away in 2007. Alison now works with kindergarten kids. She loves zipping up their coats, giving them hugs, listening to their stories and showing them the kind of warmth her mother was never able to show her. “It’s what I am meant to do,” she says. “I know that my mother loved me, in my heart of hearts, and I loved her.”

NYPD Cops Beat Man Who Had His Hands Up, Because They ‘Thought He Stole A Pizza’


New York City Police officers were caught on a grocery store surveillance video beating a young African American man who was holding his hands up. The police say that their reason for beating the youth, who was clearly trying to surrender to the violent NYPD thugs was because they “thought” he had stolen a $3 slice of pizza.
As it turned out, there was no pizza stolen.

But facts didn’t matter to Officer Lenny Lutchman and his partner Pearce Martinez, who administered the brutal beating to Thomas Jennings, 24, in a Brooklyn grocery store.

Right after Jennings raises his hands, suddenly, Lutchman’s partner Pearce Martinez charges in and delivers a running-right handed punch to Jenning’s head.

Punch after punch followed, as Lutchman quickly took his cue and began raining down punches and baton strikes as well.

The whole time, Jennings just curls up to endure the beating. He never once tries to fight back or even flee. This did not stop the beating.

Officer Martinez can be seen in the video handcuffing Jennings. All the while, Officer Lutchman continues beating him, even though Jennings has his hands behind his back the whole time.

“I didn’t ever know it was coming,” Jennings said to the New York Daily News.

Jennings was actually charged with “robbery” and was denied bail for nearly a week.

After that, prosecutors released him and declined to present the dubious case to a grand jury.

Amy Rameau, Jennings’ attorney, explained that she is confident the entire case will be thrown out or dropped, as there was no robbery whatsoever.

“It’s horrendous what they did to him,” Rameau said to the Daily News. “He had his hands up. He didn’t pose a threat to anyone in that store. It was an absolute use of excessive force.”

After Night of Drinking F.B.I. Supervisor Wakes to Find a Woman Stole His Gun and Rolex


WASHINGTON — An F.B.I. counterterrorism supervisor is under internal investigation after a woman stole his gun following a night of heavy drinking in a North Carolina hotel, according to documents and government officials.

In July, Robert Manson, a unit chief in the F.B.I.’s international terrorism section, had his Glock .40-caliber handgun, a $6,000 Rolex watch and $60 in cash stolen from his room at the Westin hotel in Charlotte, N.C., according to a police report.

The episode is an embarrassing mishap for the F.B.I. As a unit chief assigned to the bureau’s headquarters, Mr. Manson oversees all terrorism investigations in the Midwest and the Carolinas. An F.B.I. spokesman, Michael P. Kortan, said the incident was the subject of an internal investigation and declined to give additional comment.

Mr. Manson and other senior agents were in Charlotte for training, according to a law enforcement official familiar with the episode. The agents later told the police that they had been drinking with women who said they were exotic dancers, according to a second person who was briefed on the investigation but, like the first, was not authorized to discuss it publicly.

“Investigators determined that the victim, Robert Manson, met a woman in the hotel bar the prior night and took her back to his hotel room,” Robert Tufano, a spokesman for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, said in a statement.

At 6:30 the next morning, police officers for the department were called to the hotel. Mr. Manson was incapacitated because of alcohol, according to the police report, which he did not file himself. A fellow agent, Kevin Thuman, gave the report, which says the theft happened from 2 a.m. to 5 a.m. The hotel bar closes at 2 a.m.

Charity FRAUD: Red Cross staff stole $6M donated to fight 2014 Ebola crisis – report

Image: Charity FRAUD: Red Cross staff stole $6M donated to fight 2014 Ebola crisis – report

(Natural News)
When we hear about a crisis taking place somewhere in the world, many of us feel powerless and want to help in any way we can. For many people, donating money to relief workers seems like a good way to contribute, but how can you be sure that your money is actually reaching those in need? If you donated money to the Red Cross during the Ebola crisis, you will be disheartened to learn that 20 percent of what you donated was stolen by people working for the organization.

Fraudulent practices carried out by staff members of the Red Cross and its partner organizations caused the company to lose $6 million that was donated to fight against Ebola. According to the Red Cross, an internal investigation into the handling of the money donated during the height of the Ebola crisis uncovered several incidents of fraud in all of the countries affected by the outbreak.

The illness took the lives of 11,000 people as it made its way across Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia, and donations poured in as many felt the international response was not quick enough. The outbreak started in Guinea in 2013, killing more than 2,500 in that country alone. The Red Cross sent more than 6,000 volunteers to help people affected through education, mapping and safe burials.

Widespread fraud

The $6 million stolen from the organization is one fifth of the total amount they had earmarked for fighting the outbreak, and they say they are working with the governments of the countries involved to pursue legal options against the parties involved.

One of the fraudulent incidents took place in Liberia. There, the Red Cross said it lost $2.7 million through inflated payments that were made for payroll and volunteer stipends as well as relief items.

In Guinea, a clearance service provider is accused of furnishing them with over-estimated or fake bills, leading to the loss of $1.17 million in that country. Meanwhile, in Sierra Leone, the Red Cross uncovered collusion between some of its staffers at the time and a bank, which led to the disappearance of $2 million.

The Red Cross said that it was “outraged” by the discovery and will be implementing new plans to prevent corruption through audits, training, investigations, and spending caps in settings considered to be high-risk.

The organization’s Undersecretary General for Partnerships, Dr. Jemilah Mahmood, said: “We are pursuing every possible avenue to reclaim all funds that have been misappropriated, diverted, or otherwise illegally taken. This includes working with authorities in affected countries and elsewhere as appropriate.”

The Red Cross also said it would be waiving any legal immunities or privileges to make sure everyone involved is held accountable.

Long history of questionable practices

This is bad news for an organization that is quickly losing public support thanks to a series of headlines in recent years showing widespread fraud. In one particularly egregious example, it was discovered that the Red Cross spent donations received to help those affected by the Haiti earthquake very poorly. After collecting almost half a billion dollars in an effort to build homes for displaced people, it was later discovered they only built six permanent homes. Internal memos showed they saw the disaster as a great fundraising opportunity.

To add insult to injury, it was revealed that they spent some of the donated money teaching children hand-washing skills – even though they did not have access to water or soap, which the Red Cross admitted in an internal evaluation.

With so many questionable practices, more and more people are sending their money to more honest organizations that actually help people in need rather than lining their own pockets.

Palm Beach Sheriffs Office Deputy Stole Prescription Pills From Elderly Man


WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — A Palm Beach County deputy who asked the community for donations when his child was sick is now behind bars accused of stealing from the people he swore to protect.

Rod Mattino enjoys his retirement spending time with his three grandchildren.

“My priorities are scheduling my life with my grandkids, so whatever they want,” he said.

His kindness extends beyond his family, when he saw a GoFundMePage set up to support Deputy Jason Cooke’s baby diagnosed with congenital diaphragmatic hernia he knew he had to help.

“You feel for that poor child, and you just hope that our medical technology where its gotten to can help a child like that,” Mattino said.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office also took to their Facebook page to spread awareness of the infant’s situations. Sheriff Ric Bradshaw is seen embracing Deputy Cooke in the photo.

However, Cooke is now locked up facing charges of grand theft and burglary.

A sheriff’s office report says after Hurricane Irma, deputies went to check on an elderly man who was passed out in his Boynton Beach home.

Paramedics took the man to the hospital. After everyone left, Cooke — who wasn’t on the original call — snuck inside the man’s home and stole a number of prescription pills, according to investigators.

The report said the incident was caught on video and when Cooke was confronted, he admitted to stealing the pills from that home and at another location during a death investigation.

N. Korea stole cyber tools from NSA, carried out WannaCry ransomware attack – Microsoft chief

Microsoft President Brad Smith told ITV that he believed “with great confidence” that North Korea was behind the worldwide WannaCry cyberattack. 

READ MORE: WannaCry hackers have not withdrawn any ransom bitcoin, surveillance shows

“I think at this point that all observers in the know have concluded that WannaCry was caused by North Korea using cyber tools or weapons that were stolen from the National Security Agency in the United States,” Smith said. 

According to Smith, over the last six months the world has “seen threats come to life… in new and more serious way.”

“We need governments to come together as they did in Geneva in 1949 and adopt a new digital Geneva Convention that makes clear that these cyber-attacks against civilians, especially in times of peace, are off-limits and a violation of international law,” he added.

There has been speculation that North Korea may have played a significant role in the WannaCry ransomware attack in May. Shortly after the hack, Neel Mehta, a prominent Google security researcher, revealed a resemblance between the code used in what is said to be an early version of WannaCry ransomware, and that in a hacker tool attributed to the notorious Lazarus Group in a Twitter post.

Russian cyber security firm Kaspersky Lab explained in a blog post that Mehta drew parallels between “a WannaCry cryptor sample from February 2017” and “a Lazarus APT [Advanced Persistent Threat] group sample from February 2015.”

The Lazarus Group is believed to be behind high-profile hacking attacks on SWIFT servers of banks, including an attempt to steal $851 million from Bangladesh Central Bank in February 2016.

However, Kaspersky researches said that the apparent use by the WannaCry attackers of similar code is not enough to come to definitive conclusions about its origin, as there is the possibility of it being a false flag operation.

“Attribution can always be faked, as it’s only a matter of moving bytes around,” another renowned researcher, Matthieu Suiche from Comae Technologies, said at that time, as cited by Cyberscoop. 

In May, a South Korean government-commissioned report produced by the Financial Security Institute (FSI) said that North Korea was responsible for the attack on Sony’s entertainment business in 2014, which erased vast amounts of data while disseminating emails and personal data of employees, in addition to leaking pirated copies of upcoming film releases.

[WATCH] Muscogee County Sheriff’s Deputy Stole More Than 1,000 Pills From Drug Take-Back Program


A Muscogee County sheriff’s deputy stole more than 1,000 pills from the Drug Take-Back program that encourages the public to give their unwanted medication to officials for proper disposal, Sheriff Donna Tompkins said.

“It’s very sad anytime, for us, one of our own is not upholding our high standards but certainly it makes me more concerned,” she said Friday morning during a press conference. “These are a lot of drugs and everything you have access to.”

Cpl. Bridget Goolsby, who has been with the sheriff’s department for 18 years, was placed on paid administrative leave. She faces one count of violation of oath by a public officer and numerous drug charges.

The Muscogee County Sheriff’s Office launched its Drug-Take Back program in 2014 as a partnership with the Drug Enforcement Agency. It allows residents to leave their unwanted medication in drop boxes at area businesses on certain days, so officials can dispose of it in a safe manner.

A drop box was kept on the fourth floor of the Government Center all year around.

Tompkins said her administration reviewed the program and determined that it lacked adequate controls to ensure accountability when it was launched in 2014.

“Between May and July of this year, I began to make changes in the procedures for how these drugs and how this program was to be operated and how the drugs were to be collected and stored to provide for better controls and accountability for these pharmaceuticals,” she said.

Since 2015, Goolsby was responsible for collecting medication deposited in those drop boxes. That duty was given to the drug custodian on July 11 and all of the keys for the drug boxes were collected from Goolsby, authorities said.

CLAIM: Red Cross stole emergency supplies from the doorsteps of churches, then sold them for profit

ROBERT JONATHAN–A Houston-area woman has made an explosive allegation that the American Red Cross scooped up Hurricane Harvey relief supplies that poured in from all over the country, and supposedly sold some of them — like bottle water — for a profit. Other supplies were discarded in dumpsters.

In a Facebook video, Gina Nelms claimed that the Red Cross helped themselves to supplies such as clothing, baby food, diapers, and blankets that were the result of generous donations from concerned Americans that were brought in to the disaster area on 18 wheelers.

Boxes of supplies had temporarily piled up in front of churches as hard-working volunteers worked to bring them inside.

That’s when the Red Cross showed up, Nelms alleges in the Facebook video that has received almost 6 million views as of this writing.

The Red Cross was physically taking the donations from the doorsteps of these churches and putting them into their trucks. Red Cross came to the church with volunteers and began to steal the donations…from people who literally had nothing…

Nelms added that after hauling the supplies back to Red Cross shelters, Red Cross operatives tossed supplies that the organization couldn’t resell into dumpsters. She also asserts that she has pictures “of the dumpsters where they were burning millions in donations.”

The Gateway Pundit website indicated that it reached out to the Red Cross for comment, but its story has not been updated with a response as yet.

Nelms also claims that the Red Cross is protected by an Obama-era Executive Order, EO 13603, signed on March 16, 2012, regarding “National Defense Resources Preparedness.”

Although not a federal agency, the nonprofit, tax-exempt Red Cross describes itself as maintaining a “special and unique relationship” with the federal government as a “federal instrumentality” flowing from delegated authority to engage in disaster relief pursuant to its charter. Whether that brings the charitable institution under EO 13603 or not is unclear.

According to Nelms, moreover, for every $10 donated to the Red Cross, only 90 cents reaches disaster victims.

Separately, as of the end of August, the Red Cross said it had spent $50 million on Harvey relief, primarily on 232 shelters for nearly 70,000 evacuees. A Red Cross executive was unable to tell NPR at the time how much of each donated dollar was going to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, however.

A 2016 U.S. Senate study concluded that of approximately $500 million raised by the Red Cross for Haiti earthquake relief in 2010, $124 million was spent on internal expenses.

The Red Cross is currently soliciting donations on TV for hurricane relief. As of late August, via his Twitter feed, Obama was still encouraging donations to the Red Cross to help Hurricane Harvey victims.

In 2016, Natural News founder Mike Adams revealed that the Red Cross apparently only managed to build six permanent homes in Haiti, despite the post-quake outpouring of donations. (Related: Read more about alleged improprieties at Corruption.news.)

After Cops Stole His Cash For Selling Unlawful Hot Dogs, The Internet Gave Him $70,000

The internet has spoken in the case of the viral video of police robbing a man for selling unlicensed hot dogs and they’ve raised over $70,000!

Berkeley, CA — Berkeley police are in the spotlight this week after one of their officers not only cited a man for selling hot dogs to willing customers without a permit but then opened up his wallet and robbed him of his cash as well.

The entire robbery was captured on video and subsequently went viral. But that was only the beginning. Showing how much society respects hard working entrepreneurs while decrying the police state that robs them, a Go Fund Me for the hot dog vendor has raised over $70,000.

The Go Fund Me campaign was started by the person who was brave enough to question authority and film the road side robbery. According to the campaign:

The funds raised will be utilized to cover legal and personal loses. In addition, funds in excess are to cover other vendors who have been robbed of their hard earned living through citations and removal of their carts. It is my goal to locate Juan in Berkeley. Any and all help to support and locate him is welcome.

On Monday, the video became so viral that UC Berkeley Vice Chancellor Scott Biddy had to issue a statement, in which he justified the theft of the hot dog vendor’s money.

“While I cannot comment on the specifics of this particular case, our practice is to issue warnings before giving a citation,” Biddy said. “In a case such as this, it is typical to collect any suspected illegal funds and enter them into evidence.”

According to NBC 5, UCPD officials said that three other people were warned about vending without a permit, but the vendor in the video was the only person who was given a ticket.

Perhaps it was because he had the thickest wallet.

Whether or not the money in the man’s wallet was from selling unlicensed hot dogs remains to be answered. However, that was apparently of no importance to UC police officer Sean Aranas who found it necessary to confiscate it all.

Yes, selling food without first paying the government for permission—known as a permit—is against the law. However, this does not in any way justify this incident.

“That’s not right man, that’s not right,” Martin Flores, the man who took the video, said as he used his phone to record Aranas issuing the hot dog vendor, Beto, a ticket.

“That’s how it works,” the male officer responded. “Take it to a judge, and the judge can decide whether or not it’s right.”

The officer then

took the money out of the vendor’s wallet, and when he began to protest in Spanish, the officer told him to “Back up.”

“You’re going to take his hard-earned money?” Flores asked. The officer replied, “Yep.”

“He doesn’t have a permit,” the officer replied as he dug through Beto’s wallet to steal his cash. “Yep. This is law and order in action.”

In an interview with NBC Bay Area’s sister station Telemundo, the street vendor said he holds down a regular job in construction. He was selling hot dogs to earn a little extra money, he said.

“People saw I wasn’t doing anything wrong,” he said of the response to the video. “I wasn’t stealing or drinking. I was just working to sustain my family.”

As TFTP has reported, in the Land of the Free, if you do not pay the State before you attempt to sell a product or service to a willing customer, you can and will be extorted, kidnapped and caged, with extreme prejudice.

Sadly, Americans are being conditioned to think that in the land of the free, people are somehow morally wrong if they try to make a dollar without first being extorted by the state.

The bottom line is — in modern day police state, USA — exchanging goods and services is a crime unless the State gets their cut. We are told that this is for our safety and that we could all die if a brown man sells unlicensed hot dogs on the road side. But nothing could be further from the truth.

Morality does not equal legality — and the video above is more than enough evidence to prove this.

On Monday, the video became so viral that UC Berkeley Vice Chancellor Scott Biddy had to issue a statement, in which he justified the theft of the hot dog vendor’s money.

“While I cannot comment on the specifics of this particular case, our practice is to issue warnings before giving a citation,” Biddy said. “In a case such as this, it is typical to collect any suspected illegal funds and enter them into evidence.”

According to NBC 5, UCPD officials said that three other people were warned about vending without a permit, but the vendor in the video was the only person who was given a ticket.

Perhaps it was because he had the thickest wallet.

Whether or not the money in the man’s wallet was from selling unlicensed hot dogs remains to be answered. However, that was apparently of no importance to UC police officer Sean Aranas who found it necessary to confiscate it all.

Yes, selling food without first paying the government for permission—known as a permit—is against the law. However, this does not in any way justify this incident.

“That’s not right man, that’s not right,” Martin Flores, the man who took the video, said as he used his phone to record Aranas issuing the hot dog vendor, Beto, a ticket.

“That’s how it works,” the male officer responded. “Take it to a judge, and the judge can decide whether or not it’s right.”

The officer then took the money out of the vendor’s wallet, and when he began to protest in Spanish, the officer told him to “Back up.”

“You’re going to take his hard-earned money?” Flores asked. The officer replied, “Yep.”

“He doesn’t have a permit,” the officer replied as he dug through Beto’s wallet to steal his cash. “Yep. This is law and order in action.”

In an interview with NBC Bay Area’s sister station Telemundo, the street vendor said he holds down a regular job in construction. He was selling hot dogs to earn a little extra money, he said.

“People saw I wasn’t doing anything wrong,” he said of the response to the video. “I wasn’t stealing or drinking. I was just working to sustain my family.”

As TFTP has reported, in the Land of the Free, if you do not pay the State before you attempt to sell a product or service to a willing customer, you can and will be extorted, kidnapped and caged, with extreme prejudice.

Sadly, Americans are being conditioned to think that in the land of the free, people are somehow morally wrong if they try to make a dollar without first being extorted by the state.

The bottom line is — in modern day police state, USA — exchanging goods and services is a crime unless the State gets their cut. We are told that this is for our safety and that we could all die if a brown man sells unlicensed hot dogs on the road side. But nothing could be further from the truth.

Morality does not equal reality — and the video above is more than enough evidence to prove this.
