Meet Major General Albert Stubblebine III…

This former head of US Army Intelligence masterminded the army’s psychic warfare program back in the early 1980’s. He features in our book THE ORPHAN CONSPIRACIES: 29 Conspiracy Theories from The Orphan Trilogy because he’s one of the more colorful characters we came across when researching the existence or otherwise of Manuchurian Candidates, or mind-controled assassins if you will.

Here’s an excerpt from the book:

One of the more colorful characters circulating rumors of hypnotized assassins is former head of US Army Intelligence, Major General Albert Stubblebine III… Yes, the same Stubblebine the Third who famously tried to create a soldier who could levitate and walk through walls, and who – on the record – said he believed American soldiers could win all wars if they could walk through walls!

In case you still doubt Stubblebine’s credentials to speak on this subject, he’s the officer that the central character of the 2009 feature film The Men Who Stare at Goats, is based on. Is there a higher accolade than that? Still not convinced? Well, the central character was played by none other than George Clooney. Happy now?

According to Stubblebine, that story had its origins in his office when he was asked to develop the minds of people so that if they stared at a goat long enough its heart would explode. What’s more, he claims he has seen evidence that such a thing is possible, and he says he’s positive that the creation of Manchurian Candidates continues in America today.

We are not sure how seriously Albert Stubblebine III should be taken. Our first impressions are that he’s one sandwich short of a picnic.

Perhaps the Encyclopedia of American Loons should have the last say on Stubblebine. In a blog post dated January 13, 2013, the encyclopedia claims: “He is currently heartily insane, but seems to have been batshit crazy even before he tried to walk through walls”.

In a final diagnosis, the post ends: “I guess one could make an argument that the world needs hapless, elderly men called ‘Albert Stubblebine’ who are constantly befuddled by their failure to walk through solid walls”.

Then again, Stubblebine achieved the esteemed military rank of Major General and was the head of US Army Intelligence for many years. Those things don’t normally happen to loons.

Perhaps the last word on mind control and Manchurian Candidates should go to Jesse Ventura, former Governor of Minnesota who is probably America’s – and possibly the world’s – best known conspiracy theorist. The Governor fronts Sleeper Assassins, a 2010 episode of the popular US television series Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura.

Governor Ventura…believes in existence of Manchurian Candidates.

The episode starts with Governor Ventura telling viewers he has uncovered a Government plot to turn ordinary citizens into programmed killers.

“I’ve also seen how hypnosis, torture and other techniques can make ordinary people do things they otherwise couldn’t do,” says the Governor. “I met a man who says they did it to him. All the high-profile assassins who fit this same pattern…believe the government turned them into weapons. Could this be a coincidence? I don’t think so.”

We explore this concept in detail in THE ORPHAN CONSPIRACIES – and uncover some interesting theories (some would say facts) relating to real-life Manchurian Candidates in the employ of government agencies.
