FTR #976 Operation Mind Control: Subverting the Political Will

Continuing analysis of the intelligence community’s mind control programs, this broadcast details one of the most insidious applications of the mind control discipline–the programming of entire new personalities into people, which could only become operational after a pre-conditioned cue was administered.

The program begins with discussion of the use of hypnosis to enable military and intelligence couriers to commit large amounts of information to memory in such a manner as to prevent disclosure when the subject was not hypnotized.

One of the CIA’s mind control couriers was a famous model and World War II pin-up girl named Candy Jones.

Ms. Jones–one of America’s premier models, a political liberal and the wife of broadcasting legend Long John Nebel–was subjected to a rigorous mind control program in which a bigoted, fascist personality was programmed into her under the alternate personality Arlene Grant.

Ms. Jones was conditioned to hate blacks, Jews and others, via a personality conditioned into her by a programmer. After marrying Nebel, a liberal, Ms. Jones was apparently programmed to kill herself, throwing herself off a cliff in the Bahamas.

Of particular note is the sexually-charged, anti-black racism with which Ms. Jones–as “Arlene Grant”–was imbued. Against the contemporary political backdrop, this is especially significant.

The balance of the discussion is a hypothetical “prequel” to discussion of the Peoples Temple of Jim Jones. With riots in many of this country’s urban ghettos in the 1960’s and violent acts by so-called “black militants” garnering significant headlines in the 1960’s and 1970’s, there was support in the intelligence and applied psychology fields to study the social behavior and psychology of African-Americans. Particular emphasis was on studying the brains of black people, to see if there was some innate inclination toward violent behavior on the part of a significant portion of the African-American community.

The Nixon administration and the California gubernatorial registration of Ronald Reagan were supportive of the project, with the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration enlisted to help finance the project, for which an abandoned Nike missile base was to be requisitioned as an operational center.

CIA psychologist Louis Jolyon West was one of the prime movers in the apparently aborted launching of the UCLA Institute for the Study and Prevention of Violence. (West had been Jack Ruby’s psychiatrist, as well as an early experimenter on the effects of LSD.) In our next program, we examine the possibility that the UCLA center was actually supplanted with the Peoples Temple of Jim Jones, an apparent CIA operation and extension of the intelligence community’s mind control operations.

FTR #176 Fortunate Son II: The Murder of Tupac Shakur

Listen: One segment In what might be termed an example of intergenerational political repression, the killing of rap star Tupac Shakur’s in 1996 may have been the culmination of a program of political harassment by elements of law enforcement. Shakur’s intense, outspoken political sentiments derive, in considerable measure, from a family legacy of activism in […]
