Detail­ing a case unfold­ing in Cana­da, these pro­grams ana­lyze the hero­ic efforts of “The Mohawk Moth­ers” to archive the remains of Native Amer­i­cans who were the vic­tims of behav­ior mod­i­fi­ca­tion pro­grams.

Fur­ther­more, the behav­ior mod­i­fi­ca­tion pro­grams over­lap the MKULTRA oper­a­tions in the Unit­ed States.

A fun­da­men­tal the­mat­ic ele­ment in this dis­cus­sion is the Rock­e­feller fam­i­ly, Nel­son Rock­e­feller in par­tic­u­lar.

Key Points of Dis­cus­sion and Analy­sis Include: The Unit­ed States’ claim of legal immu­ni­ty from the process under­way in Cana­da; Harass­ment of the Mohawk Moth­ers by secu­ri­ty per­son­nel appoint­ed to secure the grounds being exam­ined; Cadav­er dogs’ dis­cov­ery of appar­ent human remains in the soil being exhumed; Appar­ent mis­han­dling of some of the soil sam­ples and oth­er pieces of evi­dence that could fun­da­men­tal­ly com­pro­mise the integri­ty of the inves­ti­ga­tion; The gen­e­sis of the behav­ior mod­i­fi­ca­tion pro­grams in 1943; Oper­a­tional over­lap between the Cana­di­an pro­grams direct­ed toward indige­nous peo­ple and pro­grams at Atti­ca and Dan­nemo­ra pris­ons in upper New York State direct­ed at African Amer­i­can pris­on­ers; Dis­cus­sion of Nel­son Rockefeller’s tor­tu­ous his­to­ry with Native Amer­i­cans, from fail­ing to acknowl­edge life-sav­ing activ­i­ty from Native Amer­i­can guides in Alas­ka to bru­tal­ly exploit­ing indige­nous peo­ple in Latin Amer­i­ca for prof­it; Review of the role of the Rock­e­feller fund­ing of the Allan Memo­r­i­al Insti­tute in Cana­da.

The Eyes Over Mike Johnson: the CNP’s Texas Template for God’s Power Grope Christian Nationalism isn't simply on the rise in the United States. It's already at the top, thanks in no small part to the Council for National Policy (CNP) and the myriad of groups operating under its theocratic umbrella. The Supreme Court is dominated by a hard right majority and there's even the CNP's planned mass purges - starting with the government but not ending there - under the 'Schedule F'/Project 2025 label. That's all part of the grim context surrounding a series of reports around the new Speaker of the House, Mike Johnson that should raise serious questions about just how much influence the leading Christian Nationalist hold over new Speaker of the House. But thanks the House and Supreme Court aren't the only government institution under Christian Nationalism sway. States Republicans are increasingly adopting Christian Nationalist laws, with Texas leading the way under the way under the vision of CNP pseudo-historian David Barton. It turns out Johnson and Barton are long-time allies who share the same vision for the future. A vision in line with the 'discipleship' form of authoritarian Christianity now mainstreamed in the CNP-dominated network of 47,000 churches in the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC). Which also happens to be a denomination grappling with a sex abuse mega-scandal hauntingly reminiscent of the Catholic Church's mega-abuse scandal. A mega-scandal with a number of major CNP figures operating as abusers or enablers. It's that broader intersection of Mike Johnson's ties to Christian Nationalism with this growing SBC abuse mega-scandal that we're going to look at in this post. Read more »
