FTR #977 Operation Mind Control, Part 4: Subverting the Political Will, Part 2

Con­tin­u­ing our exam­i­na­tion of the intel­li­gence com­mu­ni­ty’s mind con­trol pro­grams, this broad­cast recaps research into Jon­estown. Specif­i­cal­ly, we exam­ine Jon­estown as a prob­a­ble intel­li­gence front and exten­sion of the CIA’s mind con­trol efforts.

This, in turn, is against the back­ground of indi­ca­tions that Julian Assange’s roots are in the San­ti­nike­tan Park Asso­ci­a­tion, as well as Bernie Sanders’ asso­ciate Tul­si Gab­bard, who is deeply involved with an off­shoot of the Hare Krish­na cult.

The pro­gram begins with a talk giv­en by Joe Holsinger, a leg­isla­tive aide to the late Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Leo Ryan.

Mr. Holsinger made a num­ber of points about appar­ent intel­li­gence com­mu­ni­ty links to Jon­estown, indi­cat­ing that Jon­estown may well have been an “op,” with a num­ber of facets.

Holsinger made a num­ber of points in his pre­sen­ta­tion, includ­ing:

1.-Richard Dwyer, alleged to be CIA sta­tion chief in Guyana by cred­i­ble sources was very close to Jones, who could be heard shout­ing “Get Dwyer out of here” in a record­ing made in the imme­di­ate run-up to the Jon­estown mas­sacre.
2.-George Philip Blakey, a CIA oper­a­tive pre­vi­ous­ly involved with UNITA in Ango­la, made the ini­tial down pay­ment on the Guyana prop­er­ty that became Jon­estown.
3.-Blakey is the hus­band of Deb­bie Lay­ton Blakey, whose broth­er Lar­ry Lay­ton, Jr. led the shoot­er squad at the Port Kai­tu­ma air strip. Lawrence Lay­ton Sr., the father of Deb­bie and Lar­ry Jr., had been chief of the Chem­i­cal War­fare  Research pro­gram at Dug­way Prov­ing Grounds in Utah. Lay­ton, Sr. and his wife Lisa were also mem­bers of the Peo­ple’s Tem­ple.
4.-There were cred­i­ble accounts of the Jon­estown pop­u­la­tion being used to prop up the Guyanese gov­ern­ment.
5.-Representative Leo Ryan was co-author of the Hugh­es-Ryan amend­ment that oblig­ed the CIA to give Con­gress pri­or notice of covert oper­a­tions. If Jon­estown was a CIA oper­a­tion, it would have vio­lat­ed the Hugh­es-Ryan amend­ment. Ryan’s assas­si­na­tion at the Port Kai­tu­ma airstrip sent an unam­bigu­ous mes­sage agency crit­ics.
6.-Members of the Peo­ple’s Tem­ple at Jon­estown had med­ical checks every day, indi­cat­ing that some form of exper­i­men­ta­tion may have been going on.
7.-Comparatively few of the vic­tims actu­al­ly drank the poi­soned Kool Aid. Many were shot to death and oth­ers had been killed by lethal injec­tions admin­is­tered in their arms.
8.-After sev­er­al days of offi­cial­dom say­ing that sev­er­al hun­dred vic­tims had been found and hun­dreds of oth­ers were miss­ing, the “miss­ing” Jon­estown pop­u­la­tion were said to have been found under the first group of vic­tims, a high­ly unlike­ly sce­nario.

Pro­gram High­lights Include: 

1.-People’s Tem­ple attor­ney Mark Lane’s attempts to get Grace Stephens–a key wit­ness in the assas­si­na­tion of Mar­tin Luther King–to Jon­estown, where she would have died in the mas­sacre.
2.-Mark Lane’s dual roles as attor­ney for Peo­ple’s Tem­ple (which he main­tained was a “par­adise on earth”) and the attor­ney for James Earl Ray, the pat­sy for the assas­si­na­tion of Mar­tin Luther King. Lane’s [cor­rect] asser­tion that Ray was inno­cent was bad­ly taint­ed after the Jon­estown mas­sacre took place.
3.-Lawrence Lay­ton’s mar­riage into the Philip fam­i­ly, whose Ger­man roots extend­ed back to I.G. Far­ben and Siemens.
4.-Lawrence Lay­ton’s work on the Man­hat­tan Project.
5.-Orders from “high up” that all polit­i­cal­ly sen­si­tive papers and iden­ti­fi­ca­tion were removed from the bod­ies at Jon­estown.
6.-The fact that many of the bod­ies had iden­ti­fi­ca­tion tags on them.
7.-Zbigniew Brezin­s­ki aide Robert Pas­tor’s giv­ing of the order to strip the bod­ies of iden­ti­fi­ca­tion.
8.-The sus­pi­cious sui­cide of Ani­ta Philip, the wife of I.G. Far­ben lawyer Hugo Philip.
