DEBUNKING HOLOCAUST DENIAL THEORIES: Two Non-Jews Affirm the Historicity of the Nazi Genocide

 

One of the most common myths we address is that it would have been impossible to kill so many millions of people at Auschwitz and the other existing death camps over the course of the Holocaust. As one denier insists, “The six million figure would be almost impossible to achieve. It would have required one hell of a meat grinder, and a superhuman effort, to kill such an enormous number of people.”

In the following excerpt from Debunking Holocaust Denial Theories  we answer this assertion:

Actually, 11 million people were killed in the Holocaust – six million of whom were Jews. And note that three million Jews (50% of total Jewish fatalities) are estimated to have died in the Nazi extermination camps – victims of overwork, starvation, beatings, experimentation and, of course, the dreaded gas chambers.

This mistaken assumption that all Holocaust victims died in concentration camps, either by gassing or other means, is even perpetuated by supposedly intelligent people who have been “studying” the Holocaust for decades, or so they claim. People like Mark Weber, one of the world’s most recognizable Holocaust deniers. Weber, according to his mostly self-written bios online at least, has studied history at the University of Illinois, the University of Munich, Portland State University and Indiana University. It’s not clear to us why he felt the need to study history at so many universities. Nor could we verify what degrees he has.

Weber, who is the founder of the classy-sounding but in reality Holocaust-denying Institute For Historical Review, repeatedly makes this very mistake (assuming all six million Jewish Holocaust victims were gassed to death) in an essay he wrote titled Is the Holocaust a Hoax? The article ran in its entirety on the Bible Believers website.

To state, as he does, “Though six million Jews supposedly died in the gas chambers” is Weber’s first mistake, and it’s a biggie. No legitimate historian has ever claimed, or even remotely implied, that six million Jews died in gas chambers.

And to state, “Even if we threw away all the evidence and accounted for every so-called gas chamber, it would have taken 68 YEARS to accomplish gassing six million Jews!” is Weber’s second mistake as his genius-like mathematical estimates here are based on his first incorrect assumption.

Reporting on the rest of his clearly masterful and scholarly investigation, Weber goes on to conclude the Holocaust is definitely a hoax. He does so categorically and without providing any evidence – unless you accept Corinthians 13:6 and other Biblical passages he quotes as evidence – and he states that “The time has come for Christian scholars and pastors to recognize this, and to stop perpetrating a hoax.” He says a lot more besides, but we won’t bore you with any more of his diatribe.

An almost verbatim mistake regarding six million gassings is made by another American Holocaust denier, Pastor Steven L Anderson, founder of the Faithful Word Baptist Church. In a video presentation he uploaded to YouTube titled Did the Holocaust Really Happen?, Pastor Anderson says “The issue is whether or not six million Jews died in gas chambers and were subsequently cremated.”

No Pastor, that’s not the issue at all. If you want to debate history with the big boys then perhaps you should spend a little less time preaching and go back to school.

Names like Auschwitz, Dachau, Treblinka, Belsen and Sobibor have a ghastly ring to them and will serve as a permanent reminder of Man’s inhumanity to Man, but more about these sites later.

Besides the concentration camps, Nazi death squads and their European associates rounded up and massacred Jews in towns and cities Europe-wide. Referred to by historians as “open-air killings,” around 1.5 million Jews are estimated to have been murdered in this fashion, with machine guns being the preferred instrument of death.

Just research the amount of open-air massacres in Nazi-occupied Lithuania (where 80% of the country’s 220,000 Jews were exterminated in one year alone), Ukraine and Poland if you need confirmation. And keep in mind the wholesale slaughter wasn’t limited to the aforementioned countries. Most of these massacres had numerous witnesses, are supported by photographic evidence and have been verified beyond any shadow of a doubt.

Some critics have asked us why we felt the need to write a book debunking Holocaust denial theories – the implication being that everyone believes the Holocaust happened as mainstream historians say it happened, and that the events of that ghastly occurrence have not been greatly exaggerated and are beyond dispute.

 

Image result for holocaust victims

Holocaust exaggerated? Really?

 

Unfortunately, it’s a fact that many people don’t believe the Holocaust ever happened. This was a prime motivator for us to write and release DEBUNKING HOLOCAUST DENIAL THEORIES: Two Non-Jews Affirm the Historicity of the Nazi Genocide — a new release book that is already proving to be a thorn in the side of the deniers, and which, predictably, is drawing some flak.

An excerpt from this book’s introduction follows:

It’s a fact many people worldwide don’t believe the Holocaust ever happened. There is considerable documentation available to support this statement. For example, an exhaustive global poll conducted in 2014 by the ADL revealed that of those who have heard of the Holocaust, 32% (almost one third) believe it is a myth or has been greatly exaggerated.

More alarming still is that 26% of those surveyed harbored anti-Semitic attitudes. An interesting twist on this statistic is that 70% of those who harbored such attitudes “Have never actually met a Jewish person.”

The ADL’s poll – ADL Global 100: A Survey of Attitudes Toward Jews in Over 100 Countries Around the World – was no small survey. The countries surveyed included nine of the 10 most populous countries in the world.

Another revelation was that only 54% of those polled had heard of the Holocaust. Referring to the ADL poll, Holocaust survivor Martin Greenfield wrote in a January 2015 article (as reported by Fox News) that “Knowledge of Auschwitz is likely even more limited, particularly among young people. Past surveys have shown that nearly half of Britons had never heard of Auschwitz. Some schoolchildren even thought Auschwitz was a type of beer.” Greenfield summarized the issue well when he said, “For far too many, the Holocaust remains a mystery.”

Polls aside, Amazon and other online booksellers offer numerous Holocaust denial titles, some of which are selling fairly well and appear to have a cult following at least. A few of the more popular Holocaust denial books include: Did Six Million Really Die?, The Hoax of the Twentieth Century: The Case Against the Presumed Extermination of European Jewry, The Six Million: Fact or Fiction, The Myth of the Extermination of the Jews  and Auschwitz: The First Gassing: Rumor and Reality.

If you, dear reader, are unfamiliar with the Holocaust, read on – and be prepared to be shocked.

If, however, you subscribe to Holocaust denial theories or are in the process of being swayed by the denialists’ arguments, we would implore you to carefully analyze your sources, check the credentials of those feeding you such extreme concepts and (most importantly) ask some key questions.

Key questions would include:

-Is it possible the authors of such ‘information’ have a subtle agenda?

-Do they speak of Jews as if they are inferior, lesser beings or even enemies?

-Do they try to shift blame for the Holocaust away from Hitler and the Nazis?

-Could it be the opinions you are digesting come from biased or hate-filled individuals?

Whatever the case, for those who believe in Holocaust denial theories, we challenge those beliefs, notions and concepts in the chapters ahead. All we ask is that you keep an open mind. After all, factual information can always withstand intense scrutiny and dissection whereas lies and falsehoods cannot. Right?

We believe the Holocaust is an extremely important historical event humanity must learn from if it is to survive let alone achieve world peace. It’s not just a Jewish issue – it’s a human one. If more recent genocides in Rwanda, Cambodia and the former Yugoslavia are any guide, the lessons of Nazi Germany have not yet been learnt. We suspect German philosopher of the late Enlightenment Friedrich Hegel was right when he said, “The only thing we learn from history is that we learn nothing from history.”

All truth-seekers should study the genocide that was the Holocaust and ask themselves how on Earth this event was allowed to occur, keeping in mind allowed is the correct term as there was no shortage of witnesses, including those all over Europe who stood by and did nothing to intervene.

If those bystanders hadn’t just stood by, perhaps the history books would tell a different story.

We have had the privilege of meeting Holocaust survivors. Seeing the Nazi identification numbers tattooed on their arms and listening to their personal accounts of the atrocities that occurred inside and outside the concentration camps during WW2, makes a powerful impact. It changes a person on the inside.

Unfortunately – and this is the key point – those last remaining Holocaust survivors are now in their twilight years, and as they fade away, the anti-Semites seem to be strengthening in their resolve to challenge the historicity of the Holocaust. Once the last survivors have passed on, the battle to preserve the truth will surely be more difficult.

With the publication of this book we, as non-Jews, are doing our small part to stand up for the truth. So let us state unequivocally here and now: the Holocaust happened EXACTLY as per the history books. Period. Fact. No debate whatsoever. Lance & James Morcan

DEBUNKING HOLOCAUST DENIAL THEORIES: Two Non-Jews Affirm the Historicity of the Nazi Genocide

 

*********************************************

In the foreword to our new release book DEBUNKING HOLOCAUST DENIAL THEORIES: Two Non-Jews Affirm the Historicity of the Nazi Genocide, Bergen-Belsen concentration camp survivor number 10564,  author Hetty E. Verolme-Werkendam writes from personal experience when she says, “Those who deny the Holocaust are not only ill informed, but their resistance to accepting a well establish fact comes from a deep-seated hatred of the Jewish people.”

hetty_large

Holocaust survivor and author Hetty Verolme.

Hetty ‘s foreword to Debunking Holocaust Denial Theories  follows in full:

This book has been written for those who believe the Holocaust is a fairy tale. It has been excellently researched by authors James & Lance Morcan, and they have proven beyond any doubt that the Holocaust did occur.

Those who deny the Holocaust are not only ill informed, but their resistance to accepting a well establish fact comes from a deep-seated hatred of the Jewish people. In other words they are anti-Semites.

Beyond a shadow of a doubt, the Nazis committed this heinous crime and the German people – who in the main were aware of the atrocities but kept quiet about them – are therefore guilty by association.

SIX MILLION Jewish people were murdered in a manner which can scarcely be imagined except in the evil minds of the Nazis who set about bringing to fruition ‘The Final Solution’ – which they very nearly achieved. In total, they murdered and slaughtered 11,000,000 innocent people without mercy, and this figure does not include deaths resulting from the battles of war.

As a Holocaust survivor I can speak of it as I did experience the terrible conditions for fifteen long months in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. I vividly recall the hours standing for roll call during snowfalls, heavy rains, heatwaves and storms. We could not sit on the ground as we would lose our food rations for two days if we did.

They counted us, but the SS always concluded two or three were missing, even though this was never the case as there was no way anybody could ever escape the camp with the watch towers everywhere and the SS men constantly on patrol with their dogs. They often forced us to stand for three or four hours, and sometimes up to nine hours, during roll call. Young and old were meted out this mental and physical cruelty.

Food was 4 cm (1.5 inches) of black bread which was already weeks old. The SS had to put vinegar in the bread so that fungus would not grow in it. We also received three quarters of a litre of brown watery soup with a piece of carrot or parsnip floating in it. Those were our entire rations day in, day out for every 24 hours.

The beatings, the terrors, the unspeakable sufferings, the deprivation of water, the lack of protection from the harsh weather conditions, and being dressed in cotton grey and white (the colours of a slave labourer), all combined to strip us of our identities. We were only known by a number. Number 10564 was mine.

I was a 13-year-old girl when we were taken from our home in Amsterdam at 4.00am. Together with my parents and two little brothers we were deported to the transit camp Westerborg where we stayed for four months. During this time we saw many, many trains leave for Auschwitz. My father’s parents were on one of these trains and they went straight to the gas chambers.

 Above: Hetty as a young girl during WW2.

How unspeakably evil the Nazis were. They told the Dutch people that those detained would simply be put to work in Germany to support the war industry. The Nazis also told the Dutch public that detainees would be given a home and that the father in each detained family would work in a factory and the mother would stay home to care for her children. That’s how the Nazis managed to orchestrate a quiet and orderly transportation of 105,000 people from the Netherlands.

On the 1st of February 1944 we were on the train to Bergen Belsen where for 10 months we were together with my parents. After eventually being separated from my parents it was my task to take care of my little brothers and also 40 other younger children. With the help of two Polish nurses we managed to stay alive as a group and were liberated by the English army on the 15th of April, 1945.

On the 1st of January 1945 there were 60,000 people in Belsen in an area not bigger than three football fields. By the 15th of April 1945, some 40,000 had died of malnutrition and typhus and in the months following the liberation another 17,000 died.

Of the 105,000 people deported from the Netherlands, only 5000 returned from the camps alive.

It is most important that the Holocaust is remembered. Let’s hope this book will contribute toward that.

In our latest book we devote an entire chapter to a post-World War Two program known as Project Paperclip, a nefarious undertaking which involved secreting Nazi scientists – some of them known war criminals – into America to provide much needed scientific expertise.

Our research showed direct, proven links between some of the war criminals and Nazi concentration camps – Auschwitz and Dachau included. Interestingly, our research revealed another post-WW2 program remarkably similar to Project Paperclip, this one involving Japanese scientists and war criminals rather than the Nazis. The US was a key player in this program, too.

The Japanese program involved a ghastly human experimentation project at the infamous Unit 731, an isolated Japanese Biological Warfare research facility located in what was then Manchuria, a Japanese puppet state, but is now Northeast China. It’s worth studying to better understand why Western superpowers protected known war criminals – Nazi and Japanese – throughout the mid-late 20th Century.

 

Unit 731 Japanese Biological Warfare research facility.

For an insight into what went on at Unit 731, here’s an excerpt from our book, THE ORPHAN CONSPIRACIES: 29 Conspiracy Theories from The Orphan Trilogy:

The experimentation project was the brainchild of the notoriously cruel General Shirō Ishii, a scientist who was effectively Japan’s equivalent of Dr. Joseph Mengele.

File:Shiro-ishii.jpg

General Shirō Ishii…Commander of Unit 731.

Researchers at Unit 731, which facilitated secret biological and chemical warfare research, mainly used captured Chinese and Russian subjects for their horrific medical experiments. However, their human guinea pigs also included American, Australian, New Zealand and British prisoners of war.

General Ishii’s medical testing at the secret Manchurian facility included high-voltage electric shock experiments, cyanide poisonings, frostbite studies, biological weapons testing including anthrax, heroin and other drug tests, and injecting prisoners with bacteria from plague-infected fleas procured from mice; live dissections on prisoners were also common and the victims were not even given any painkillers while their bodies were slowly dissected.

Victims of Unit 731.

The prisoners were referred to as “monkeys” in scientific papers, even though it was common knowledge amongst the Japanese military and in political circles that the test subjects were in fact humans. Tens of thousands of victims died at Unit 731 and its sister sites.

Although less widely reported than Mengele’s medical research at Auschwitz, many historians have compared the hideous medical experiments at Unit 731 to the Nazi medical experiments during the Holocaust.

Japanese soldiers stationed at Unit 731.

Parallels with Project Paperclip are numerous. Declassified documents have revealed that after the war ended, large-scale collaboration occurred between America and scientists of Unit 731. What’s more, the insidious Japanese research became the basis for many US military operations – and like the Nazi scientists protected by Project Paperclip, many of Unit 731’s scientists went on to have prominent careers after the war.

Just as the Nazis had made incredible scientific breakthroughs during the war years, it appears Japan was another scientific giant of the era. Germany and Japan obviously got the jump on the rest of the world in the area of medical research by being able to ruthlessly experiment on as many human subjects as they wanted. And this informative and valuable research was desired by both the US and the Soviet Union at the start of the Cold War.

Japan’s scientific breakthroughs most likely explain why General Ishii and all the other Japanese scientists involved in Unit 731 were never tried for war crimes by the US or by any other Allied nation.

A US intelligence cable advised the War Department that the Japanese scientists, “headed by Ishii did violate rules of land warfare,” but that “this expression of opinion is not a recommendation that group be charged and tried as such.”

Further evidence of the United States’ intentions is evidenced by the actions of General Douglas MacArthur. While serving as Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, MacArthur wrote to Washington DC on May 6, 1947 as follows: “Statements from Ishii probably can be obtained by informing Japanese involved that information will be retained in intelligence channels and will not be employed as ‘War Crimes’ evidence.”

General Douglas MacArthur…orchestrated a deal.

The following year, in exchange for all their biological warfare research, MacArthur orchestrated a deal with the scientists of Unit 731, including General Ishii, whereby they were secretly granted complete immunity from prosecution. Claims of the horrors Allied POW’s endured at the hands of their Japanese captors were from that point on ignored, and the ensuing Tokyo War Crimes trials omitted reference to Ishii and his staff.

File:IMTFE defendants.jpg

Japanese war crimes trial defendants…those involved with Unit 731 conspicuous by their absence.

In the decades immediately after the war ended, the Japanese and American governments continuously denied any conspiracy surrounding the legacy of Unit 731.

However, another file from General MacArthur’s headquarters confirms the ugly truth. In it, MacArthur states that in studying General Ishii’s work, “utmost secrecy is essential in order to protect the interests of the United States and to guard against embarrassment”.

Like the US, the Soviets also appear to have secured some of the Japanese scientists’ human experimentation research, for after WW2 a biological weapons facility was built in Sverdlovsk, in the Soviet Union. The Sverdlovsk facility and practices within it are said to have been almost a carbon copy of what was detailed in Unit 731 documents.

Many conspiracy theorists as well as a number of biological weapons researchers claim the US military secretly began testing germ warfare on American citizens without their knowledge. These tests, which were apparently conducted from the 1950’s onwards, are said by some to be based on the science of Unit 731, and include tests still classified by the CIA and the US Army’s Chemical and Biological Warfare laboratories.

The suspicion lingers that many of the US military’s covert biological warfare operations since WW2, including the Vietnam War’s Operation Ranch Hand, may be related to Unit 731 – and Gulf War Syndrome could also be the result of biological warfare directly inspired by General Ishii’s germ warfare experiments.

If by chance Chemtrails – that favorite Tinfoil Hat theory which suggests governments release chemical agents into the skies above populated areas – is one day proven to be a reality, then the Japanese experiments could also be the basis for these as well.

Along with Yamashita’s Gold and Project Paperclip, Unit 731 and its aftermath – including America’s involvement – remained one of the best kept secrets of the post war era. The public finally learned about this dreadful secret in 1993 when then US Defense Secretary William Perry finally declassified army and intelligence records relating to the Japanese human experimentation during WW2.

Defense Secretary Perry finally spilled the beans about Unit 731.

Operation-Paperclip-The-CIA-And-the-Nazis3

History reminds us that communism was already a dominant political force even before the echoes of World War Two had faded. After the war, as the Soviet Union began to encroach on more and more nations, communism and the threat of nuclear war were the West’s two big fears.

However, there is a lesser known school of thought that says fascism actually posed an even bigger threat post-WW2.

On the surface, this theory doesn’t make much sense for officially speaking fascism was all but expunged from the Earth when the Allies demolished the Nazi war machine. From then on, the only fascist remnants appeared to be obscure far-right political parties as well as the odd white supremacist or anti-Semitic group.

But that’s just on the surface and what the history books tell us.

Alternative versions that lie beneath commonly accepted 20th Century history claim many Western nations – the US in particular – only missed out on becoming fascist states by a whisker. Such ideas pose the almost unthinkable question: what if Nazism morphed into something else and continued underground, in another guise, in the West?

 

“The fascists. They took over this country straight after World War Two. Kennedy was the last president who knew anything about this. All those who followed him have been kept in the dark.”The Orphan Factory

 

Fascist ideologies, practices and technologies didn’t vanish with the death of Hitler and Nazi Germany, this radical conspiracy theory suggests. Instead, they actually grew in popularity with fascist supporters springing up in senior positions of power in various Western governments. However, this theory asserts that fascism became harder to detect because of its more subtle implementation, which perhaps indicates this new breed of fascists learnt from the failures of the Third Reich.

Sounds ridiculous, doesn’t it?

We thought so too…until we came across a little known US Government program whose declassified files reveal damning evidence of co-operation between Nazi party survivors and the highest ranking American politicians.

 

Project Paperclip

As stated in chapter 2, America’s mind control programs stemmed from the US Government’s Project Paperclip, but it wasn’t just Nazi brainwashing techniques the Americans inherited. They also seized Nazi scientists whose number included known war criminals.

The top secret project, also known as Operation Paperclip, was a nefarious undertaking that allowed Nazi scientists to migrate to the US without prosecution. Some had studied brainwashing and other mind control methods first-hand in the concentration camps; many were rocket scientists who had been directly involved in the development of Germany’s feared V-1 and V-2 rockets. The latter’s contribution would pave the way for NASA and the Moon landings, and also for America’s Intercontinental Ballistic Missile program.

File:Project Paperclip Team at Fort Bliss.jpg

Project Paperclip was as much about denying German scientific expertise to the Soviet Union and Britain as it was benefiting US science, defence and space programs. This was happening as the Cold War loomed don’t forget and an uncertain world was being carved up by superpowers. It was a three-way grab (for the spoils) between the Americans, the Soviets and the Brits.

Remember, Nazi Germany’s scientific breakthroughs were nothing short of revolutionary. Although it didn’t last long, the Nazi era was arguably the most accelerated scientific period in history, especially when suppressed or little known Nazi inventions are taken into account. History reminds us how easily the Third Reich dominated Europe despite being greatly outnumbered by the combined Allied forces. The Germans ruled the land, sea and air, and it was obvious to all they had superior technologies.

The Allies learned the hard way that Nazi engineers and scientists had made incredible breakthroughs in various fields. These included semi-conductors, plasma physics, ballistic missiles, laser technologies, electromagnetic weapons, computers, astrophysics, infrared night vision and miniature electronics to name but a few. While some of these breakthroughs were commonly known, others remained classified and were kept secret for decades.

A BBC News report dated November 21, 2005 nicely summarizes the situation that existed at the close of WW2. That report states: “The end of World War II saw an intense scramble for Nazi Germany’s many technological secrets. The Allies vied to plunder as much equipment and expertise as possible from the rubble of the Thousand Year Reich for themselves, while preventing others from doing the same”.

The report continues: “The range of Germany’s technical achievement astounded Allied scientific intelligence experts accompanying the invading forces in 1945”.

That BBC News report also reminds us “It was the US and the Soviet Union which, in the first days of the Cold War, found themselves in a race against time to uncover Hitler’s scientific secrets”.

Project Paperclip was America’s solution to this problem. Supposedly named after the paperclips that were used to attach the files of the recruited German scientists, the project was the brainchild of America’s Joint Intelligence Objectives Agency (JOIA), a sub-committee of the Joint Chief’s of Staff of the US Armed Forces.

Project Paperclip’s architects viewed their secret endeavor as the solution to harnessing Nazi scientists’ superior knowledge and expertise, and positioning America as the world leader in science and technology.

 

MK-Ultra, the CIA’s far-reaching mind-control program, was an umbrella project spawned from the US Government’s super-secret Project Paperclip, a sinister venture that involved bringing dozens of Nazi scientists to America immediately after World War Two.The Ninth Orphan

 

Paperclip Nazis get their greencards

The recruitment of Nazi scientists began as soon as the war ended although the project itself wasn’t officially signed off by President Harry Truman until three months later.

It should be noted that while Truman stipulated that scientists who were active in the Nazi Party, or who actively supported it, should not be recruited, such limitations would have precluded the recruitment of the most eligible prospects.

Declassified files show that Truman’s orders were ignored.All recruits were cleared to work in America after their backgrounds were cleaned up. US authorities created fake resumes, removing any mention of Nazi involvement, and entire false identities were designed for the highest profile war criminals.

Those same declassified files also indicate that, at one point, around 10,000 Nazis were living undercover in America. (Some estimates are as high as 15,000). Many were awarded citizenship. Imagine how many descendants of those Nazis reside in the US today. It’s quite possible some are reading this book right now.

operation-paperclip-300x235

Tom Bower’s 1987 book, The Paperclip Conspiracy: The Hunt for the Nazi Scientists, provides an insightful look at the history behind the project and reminds readers how quickly morals can be set to one side to meet an apparent need – in this case the need for scientific knowledge. The author cites official WW2 files as his main source of information.

 

Worldwide asylum for Nazi scientists

Reviewers of Bower’s book have picked up on a key point he makes – notably that the Americans, Soviets and Brits were fiercely competing to secure Nazi scientists for themselves and were prepared to overlook the fact some, or possibly many, were known war criminals.

Various international media reports have also confirmed Britain and other countries outside the US were extremely active in pursuing Nazi scientists.

For example, The Guardian newspaper edition of August 17, 1999 reports that Britain secretly organized the recruitment and transfer to Australia of scores of leading Nazi scientists and weapons specialists after the close of WW2.

Quoting newly declassified Australian Government papers, The Guardian says the German scientists sent to Australia under a top secret project codenamed Operation Matchbox included SS and Nazi party members.

The article also states: “The leading Nazi-hunting watchdog, the Simon Wiesenthal Centre, in Jerusalem, yesterday demanded an investigation into the recruitments ordered by Britain and the US, and said Australia was a haven for ‘holocaust perpetrators and mass murderers’.”

The same newspaper, on August 29, 2007, reports that, contrary to general assumption, German scientists and technicians were forcibly evacuated from Germany to Britain for more than two years after cessation of hostilities. In other words, they didn’t volunteer. From what we can deduce, the same applies to those who ended up working in the US and the Soviet Union.

 

Welcome mat rolled out for war criminals

In the post-war years in the US, Project Paperclip remained hush-hush and only a select few knew of its existence. It wasn’t until much later the American public learned the truth – or part of the truth at least.

A US Justice Department report dated December 2006 states: “In the 1970’s, the public was shocked to learn that some Nazi persecutors had emigrated to the United States. There were calls for their expulsion and legislation was passed to facilitate their deportation. OSI (the Office of Special Investigations) was created in 1979 to handle the caseload”.

In the report, the Justice Department goes to great lengths to explain that the obstacles to success in prosecuting these Nazi war criminals were formidable. It lists numerous reasons supporting this opinion – not the least being that so much time had passed and many of the recruits had died.

Several prominent US newspapers have claimed that the Justice Department report reveals OSI investigators learned some of the Nazis were knowingly granted entry to the US even though government officials were aware of their pasts. Some journalists have observed that America, with its proud history of providing sanctuary for the persecuted including Holocaust survivors, had ended up giving asylum to some of their persecutors.

A New York Times article dated November 13, 2010 takes the Justice Department to task for sitting on its report for so long. The article states: “The 600-page report, which the Justice Department has tried to keep secret for four years, provides new evidence about more than two dozen of the most notorious Nazi cases of the last three decades”.

However, it’s the article’s intro that caught our eye. It reads: “A secret history of the US Government’s Nazi-hunting operation concludes that American intelligence officials created a safe haven in the US for Nazis and their collaborators after WW2 and it details decades of clashes, often hidden, with other nations over war criminals here and abroad”.

While over 300 Nazi migrants have either been deported or refused visas to America since OSI’s formation, the Justice Department’s report leaves no doubt the US Government collaborated with notorious war criminals and knowingly granted them entry into the US.

The CIA doesn’t escape censure either. Its “use of Nazis for postwar intelligence purposes” comes under the spotlight in the report.

 

So who were these Paperclip Nazis?

There’s obviously too many Paperclip Nazis to name them all, but here’s a few confirmed names that kept popping up in our research.

Rocket engineer and prominent Nazi Arthur Rudolph was a major player in the development of Germany’s V-2 rocket before being brought to the US. Rudolph subsequently worked for the US Army, developing missile systems, and for NASA, helping pioneer America’s space program. After being investigated for possible war crimes, he struck a deal with the US Government that enabled him to depart the country without being prosecuted (in the US).One of the accusations leveled at him was that he’d worked thousands of slave laborers to death – an accusation he denied.

Engineer Georg Rickhey was awarded the War Merit Cross for his work overseeing Germany’s production of the V-1 and V-2 rockets. After being brought to the US, he was returned to Germany to face accusations of having cooperated with the Gestapo and the SS. However, lack of evidence saw him acquitted and returned to continue his work in the US.

Strughold was bestowed the unofficial title of ‘the father of space medicine’ for his studies of the effects of spaceflight on astronauts. Before and after his death, he became the subject of several investigations into alleged war crimes, suffering significant damage to his reputation.One allegation leveled against him was that he was involved in Dachau Concentration Camp experiments, including one in which camp inmates were exposed to freezing conditions.

Since Strughold’s death, debate has raged between former colleagues and between fellow scientists. Some insist his involvement with the Nazis should preclude any honors being bestowed upon him while others claim there was no evidence to prove he was guilty of the crimes he was accused of.

Perhaps the most prominent Nazi import was rocket scientist Wernher von Braun who is referred to as ‘the father of rocket science’. Herr von Braun spearheaded Nazi Germany’s development of rocket technology, and later, in company with key members of his team, became a leading figure in America’s rocket program. Along with his protégé Doctor Hermann Oberth, he was an integral part of America’s first Moon-landing.

In the biography of von Braun on NASA’s official website, readers are advised the scientist engineered the surrender of 500 of his top rocket scientists, along with plans and test vehicles, to the Americans. He worked with the US Army for 15 years developing ballistic missiles before being sent to the US and eventually becoming a naturalized American.

Given that mind control as we know it was first mastered during Hitler’s reign, it’s no surprise Nazi psychiatrists were also among those brought into the US post WW2.

As Dr. Thomas Roeder and co-authors Volker Kubillus and Anthony Burwell revealed in their 1995 book Psychiatrists: The Men Behind Hitler, psychiatry was highly valued in the Third Reich. From declassified Paperclip files it’s obvious the science of the mind was equally valued by US authorities.

What’s insane is that after the American public had paid an enormously high price to win WW2, US taxpayers then paid for Josef Mengele’s protégés to live and work in America.

This means that Doctor Mengele’s dark scientific legacy not only included the countless victims of the Holocaust experiments he conducted, but also the thousands of American and Canadian casualties of the MK-Ultra program.

Auschwitz concentration camp…just a stepping stone for Mengele and his associates.

When considering Project Paperclip’s influence on modern mind control programs, the doctor’s moniker The Angel of Death suddenly becomes even more relevant.

 

“What national security permits the removal of fundamental power from the hands of the American people and validates the ascendancy of an invisible government in the United States? That kind of national security, gentlemen of the jury, is when it smells like it, feels like it, and looks like it, you call it what it is: Fascism! I submit to you that what took place on November 22, 1963 was a coup d’etat.” –Monologue delivered by Kevin Costner and written by Oliver Stone in JFK (1991)

 

Unit 731 – the Japanese Auschwitz

The Unit 731 Japanese Biological Warfare research facility.

It seems there was another post-WW2 program remarkably similar to Project Paperclip, involving Japanese scientists and war criminals rather than the Nazis. The US was a key player in this program, too. As a comparative example, it’s worth studying to better understand why Western superpowers protected known war criminals throughout the mid-late 20th Century.

This program involves a ghastly human experimentation project at the infamous Unit 731, an isolated Japanese Biological Warfare research facility located in what was then Manchuria, a Japanese puppet state, but is now Northeast China. The experimentation project was the brainchild of the notoriously cruel General Shirō Ishii, a scientist who was effectively Japan’s equivalent of Dr. Joseph Mengele.

File:Shiro-ishii.jpg

General Shirō Ishii…Commander of Unit 731.

Researchers at Unit 731, which facilitated secret biological and chemical warfare research, mainly used captured Chinese and Russian subjects for their horrific medical experiments. However, their human guinea pigs also included American, Australian, New Zealand and British prisoners of war.

General Ishii’s medical testing at the secret Manchurian facility included high-voltage electric shock experiments, cyanide poisonings, frostbite studies, biological weapons testing including anthrax, heroin and other drug tests, and injecting prisoners with bacteria from plague-infected fleas procured from mice; live dissections on prisoners were also common and the victims were not even given any painkillers while their bodies were slowly dissected.

The prisoners were referred to as “monkeys” in scientific papers, even though it was common knowledge amongst the Japanese military and in political circles that the test subjects were in fact humans. Tens of thousands of victims died at Unit 731 and its sister sites.

Although less widely reported than Mengele’s medical research at Auschwitz, many historians have compared the hideous medical experiments at Unit 731 to the Nazi medical experiments during the Holocaust.

Parallels with Project Paperclip are numerous. Declassified documents have revealed that after the war ended, large-scale collaboration occurred between America and scientists of Unit 731. What’s more, the insidious Japanese research became the basis for many US military operations – and like the Nazi scientists protected by Project Paperclip, many of Unit 731’s scientists went on to have prominent careers after the war.

Just as the Nazis had made incredible scientific breakthroughs during the war years, it appears Japan was another scientific giant of the era. Germany and Japan obviously got the jump on the rest of the world in the area of medical research by being able to ruthlessly experiment on as many human subjects as they wanted. And this informative and valuable research was desired by both the US and the Soviet Union at the start of the Cold War.

Japan’s scientific breakthroughs most likely explain why General Ishii and all the other Japanese scientists involved in Unit 731 were never tried for war crimes by the US or by any other Allied nation.

A US intelligence cable advised the War Department that the Japanese scientists, “headed by Ishii did violate rules of land warfare,” but that “this expression of opinion is not a recommendation that group be charged and tried as such.”

Further evidence of the United States’ intentions is evidenced by the actions of General Douglas MacArthur. While serving as Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, MacArthur wrote to Washington DC on May 6, 1947 as follows: “Statements from Ishii probably can be obtained by informing Japanese involved that information will be retained in intelligence channels and will not be employed as ‘War Crimes’ evidence.”

The following year, in exchange for all their biological warfare research, MacArthur orchestrated a deal with the scientists of Unit 731, including General Ishii, whereby they were secretly granted complete immunity from prosecution. Claims of the horrors Allied POW’s endured at the hands of their Japanese captors were from that point on ignored, and the ensuing Tokyo War Crimes trials omitted reference to Ishii and his staff.

File:IMTFE defendants.jpg

Japanese war crimes trial defendants…those involved with Unit 731 conspicuous by their absence.

In the decades immediately after the war ended, the Japanese and American governments continuously denied any conspiracy surrounding the legacy of Unit 731.

However, another file from General MacArthur’s headquarters confirms the ugly truth. In it, MacArthur states that in studying General Ishii’s work, “utmost secrecy is essential in order to protect the interests of the United States and to guard against embarrassment”.

Like the US, the Soviets also appear to have secured some of the Japanese scientists’ human experimentation research, for after WW2 a biological weapons facility was built in Sverdlovsk, in the Soviet Union. The Sverdlovsk facility and practices within it are said to have been almost a carbon copy of what was detailed in Unit 731 documents.

Many conspiracy theorists as well as a number of biological weapons researchers claim the US military secretly began testing germ warfare on American citizens without their knowledge. These tests, which were apparently conducted from the 1950’s onwards, are said by some to be based on the science of Unit 731, and include tests still classified by the CIA and the US Army’s Chemical and Biological Warfare laboratories.

The suspicion lingers that many of the US military’s covert biological warfare operations since WW2, including the Vietnam War’s Operation Ranch Hand, may be related to Unit 731 – and Gulf War Syndrome could also be the result of biological warfare directly inspired by General Ishii’s germ warfare experiments.

If by chance Chemtrails – that favorite Tinfoil Hat theory which suggests governments release chemical agents into the skies above populated areas – is one day proven to be a reality, then the Japanese experiments could also be the basis for these as well.

Along with Yamashita’s Gold and Project Paperclip, Unit 731 and its aftermath – including America’s involvement – remained one of the best kept secrets of the post war era. The public finally learned about this dreadful secret in 1993 when then US Defense Secretary William Perry finally declassified army and intelligence records relating to the Japanese human experimentation during WW2.

To refocus on Project Paperclip, there’s no doubt that bringing Nazi scientists into the US fast-tracked its scientific programs. However, it’s our opinion the project had political and moral ramifications for American society as well.

As we wrote in chapter 2, mind control was a fascist technology that appears to have enabled assassinations of many important American figures. And in chapter 7, we mentioned how a Splinter Civilization appears to have suppressed advanced technologies and used them for their own ends – much as the Nazis hid secrets from the German people before and during WW2.

Just as science and psychiatry were such a large part of the Third Reich, Project Paperclip had profound effects on American and Western society as a whole. In fact, it could easily be argued fascism subtly wormed its way into government ideologies the world over.

Added to this concern is the fact that there are still a large number of classified Project Paperclip documents in existence. If their contents are more controversial than, or even as controversial as, those of the declassified documents, the mind boggles at what secrets they hide. What else were the Nazi recruits used for and how many more war criminals were admitted to the US at war’s end? Let’s not forget the UK and Australia either; they had their Project Paperclip equivalents as did Russia.

At least one conspiracy theory author claims Josef Mengele briefly lived and worked in the US before being transferred to South America. Mengele’s name appears in no Paperclip documents, however. At least not in any declassified documents.

Josef Mengele.jpg

Josef Mengele’s…his dark legacy lives on.

If and when the remaining files are ever declassified, they may reveal even greater collusion between Nazi Party survivors and the US Government. In fact, we suspect they will. Otherwise, why do they remain classified?

Perhaps it’s not too big a stretch to suggest that Nazi ideologies continue to the present day behind the veil of supposedly free societies and governments.

Some conspiracy theorists go even further and suggest the Fourth Reich – a long-predicted successor of the Third Reich – has already been achieved. And in the United States, no less!

Citing evidence of high-ranking survivors of Germany’s Third Reich being given sanctuary in the West through top-secret operations like Project Paperclip, this theory suggests Nazi practices like human experimentation, media manipulation, military aggression and 1984-style government controls on citizens have become a reality.

We don’t claim to have all the answers on this subject – or any answers for that matter.

But one thing’s for sure: Project Paperclip, not to mention Unit 731, deserves more attention from historians and mainstream media than it currently receives.

Musical Mind Control, Another Music Conspiracy Theory Or Hidden Truth?

Some of America’s highest profile assassins – including the likes of John Lennon’s killer Mark David Chapman and Robert Kennedy’s assassin Sirhan Sirhan – claimed they were CIA-programmed killers hypnotized by MK-Ultra. The media portrayed them as crazed lone gunmen, so naturally the public paid little attention to their claims. Kentbridge, however, knew it was possible some of these men were mind controlled soldiers, or Manchurian Candidates, carrying out assassination orders their conscious minds were not even aware of.The Ninth Orphan

Sirhan Sirhan and David Chapman…Manchurian Candidates?

 

 

 

 

 

 

In our international thriller series The Orphan Trilogy, the orphans are up against – amongst other things – mind control programming. Most don’t realize they are under the spell of mind control. They simply know they are fighting against something dark which lies deep within, hidden in their psyche.

In The Orphan Uprising our lead character Number Nine, aka Sebastian, goes up against a legion of mind-controlled orphans he grew up with. Nine only escapes the sinister tentacles of mind control when helped by an FBI agent who specializes in deprogramming mind control victims.

On the surface, our series’ plot may sound like far-fetched science fiction. However, the reality is mind control is a documented fact.

Manipulating the thoughts and behaviour of unsuspecting victims has been occurring for at least 60 years. From declassified files from governments, intelligence agencies and the military, to media reports and scientific journals, to interviews with psychiatrists involved in experiments, mind control is on-the-record and official.

It’s worth considering here what British author and pacifist Aldous Huxley wrote in his 1958 non-fiction work Brave New World Revisited: “It is perfectly possible for a man to be out of prison, and yet not free – to be under no physical constraint and yet to be a psychological captive, compelled to think, feel and act as the representatives of the national state, or of some private interest within the nation, wants him to think, feel and act.”

Aldous Huxley (1894-1963)

Huxley was alluding to the dark art of mind control, suggesting who the architects of this malicious behavior modification were and implying its extensive possibilities.

During the course of researching this subject for The Orphan Trilogy we uncovered the little known history of mind control, and it’s something of a long, spooky rabbit hole to say the least. By reading and analyzing court cases, doctors’ reports and declassified documents, we became aware of the often disastrous impact mind control programs have had on the lives of innocent civilians over the decades.

Mind control in the Third Reich

Most of the earliest reports of mind control come from Nazi Germany. In fact, many researchers have surmised that all subsequent mind control programs – including British, Russian and American programs – have firm roots in these early German experiments and applications.

“Hitler’s philosophy and his concept of man in general were shaped to a decisive degree by psychiatry,” according to Dr. Thomas Roeder and his co-authors Volker Kubillus and Anthony Burwell in their 1995 book Psychiatrists: The Men Behind Hitler. They wrote: “An influential cluster of psychiatrists and their frightening theories and methods collectively form the missing piece of the puzzle of Hitler, the Third Reich, the atrocities and their dreadful legacy.”

Lebensborn was one of numerous Nazi programs that incorporated mind control techniques. The SS-backed program, which was a pet project of senior Nazi party member Heinrich Himmler, was set up in 1935 with the goal of increasing the Aryan population. It involved kidnapping thousands of very young children who were deemed to be “racially pure”. Some were orphans, some were not. They were sent to camps built specifically for the mind control tactics which would come to be known as Eindeutschung. Basically, it amounted to brainwashing the children to think like Nazis, even if they were not German.

SS officer Doctor Josef Mengele, infamously nicknamed the Angel of Death for his horrific human experiments at Auschwitz, is said to have been employed in the Lebensborn program, albeit quite secretively.

Josef Mengele.jpg

Dr. Joseph Mengele

Doctor Mengele conducted one of the earliest studies on trauma-based mind control during his tenure at the Auschwitz concentration camp. Some researchers say that the Angel of Death’s mind control methodologies became the primary brainwashing techniques used to reprogram the young children in Lebensborn facilities Europe-wide.

These advances in mind control techniques and technologies didn’t disappear with the fall of Nazi Germany. When the Soviets and the Americans invaded the country and divided the spoils, they both inherited these sophisticated mind control breakthroughs.

Bluebird

Project Bluebird was the CIA’s first official behavior modification program. Created in 1949, its purpose was to study behavior modification, interrogation and general mind control as well as interrelated subjects.

Bluebird was an umbrella project spawned from the US Government’s super-secret Project Paperclip. Also known as Operation Paperclip, it was a sinister venture that brought hundreds of Nazi scientists to America immediately after World War Two. They were spirited into the US, often with new identities. Many were experts in brainwashing and other mind control methods. Some were even known war criminals, prosecuted during the Nuremberg Trials.

Nazis at the Nuremberg Trials.

Yes you read that right: the US Government’s mind control programs stem directly from the horrendous psychiatric experiments the Nazis conducted during the Holocaust.

Again, this may all sound very far-fetched, but we implore you to do the research if you can’t believe it. Paperclip is on-the-record, and fascist methodologies really did worm their way into nations throughout the West. (See chapter 12 for the history of Project Paperclip).

The sad thing was Seventeen would remain completely unaware she was being exploited, such were the ramifications of the insidious mind control programs.The Ninth Orphan

Artichoke

By 1950, Project Bluebird had morphed into Project Artichoke, which was a forerunner to the better known Project MK-Ultra. Artichoke included non-consensual medical experiments in which elite psychiatrists created new identities in some people, amnesia in others and inserted false memories into the minds of the remaining subjects.

Professional magician John Mulholland was quietly recruited by Artichoke administrators to hypnotize subjects and prepare them for mind control experiments. In the early 1950’s, he stopped performing magic shows, citing health problems. However, it was later revealed Mulholland had actually become an intelligence agent for the Central Intelligence Agency.

The following excerpt from a now declassified CIA memo dated 1952 summarizes the agency’s motivations with Artichoke: “Can we get control of an individual to the point where he will do our bidding against his will and even against fundamental laws of nature, such as self-preservation?”

 MK-Ultra

The most documented government mind control program worldwide is Project MK-Ultra. This human research operation in behavioral engineering began in the early 1950’s and was run through the CIA’s Scientific Intelligence Division. It continued for a quarter of a century, and it used American and Canadian citizens as its test subjects, usually without their knowledge or consent.

Doctor Sidney Gottlieb was in charge of MK-Ultra from its inception until the mid-1960’s. By all accounts a callous and eccentric individual, Gottlieb was the inspiration for Peter Sellers’ title role in Stanley Kubrick’s 1964 black comedy Dr. Strangelove.

Still of Peter Sellers in Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

Peter Sellers as Dr. Strangelove.

Many researchers have deduced that the CIA’s goal was to create real-life Manchurian Candidates. We’d have to agree, although there are probably wider applications of effective mind control than producing programmed assassins.

As a result of the United States’ Freedom of Information Act, tens of thousands of government documents relating to Project MK-Ultra have been obtained by independent researchers. Other documents regarding MK-Ultra have also been officially declassified.

The project finally came to the American public’s attention in 1975 when it was discussed in the US Congress.

President Gerald Ford also set up a commission to investigate MK-Ultra and other CIA activities. This led to Senate hearings on MK-Ultra in 1977 during which Senator Ted Kennedy stated: “The Deputy Director of the CIA revealed that over 30 universities and institutions were involved in an extensive testing and experimentation program which included covert drug tests on unwitting citizens at all social levels, high and low, native Americans and foreign.”

Seemingly following the same mind control protocols laid down by the Nazis, the CIA selected people from the most vulnerable sectors of American society to experiment on – orphans, the mentally ill, prisoners, the poor, the handicapped. Basically those who didn’t have a voice or the wherewithal to seek help.

Two young victims of the Nazi era.

CIA doctors involved in MK-Ultra experiments incorporated various methods to manipulate people’s brains and alter their mental states. These included disruptive electromagnetic signals, sensory deprivation, hypnosis, electroshock, sexual abuse and drugs, especially LSD.

Equally disturbing, the list of infamous people connected to, or rumored to be associated with, MK-Ultra almost reads like a who’s who of the worst American criminals in the 20th Century.

Lawrence Teeter, the lawyer representing Robert F. Kennedy’s assassin, Sirhan Sirhan, proposed that his client was an MK-Ultra victim. Teeter stated Sirhan displayed all the signs of being hypnotized before and after RFK’s assassination.

Enough evidence exists to conclude that Theodore Kaczynski, otherwise known as the Unabomber, participated in MK-Ultra experiments conducted at Harvard University from 1959 to 1962. Although these Harvard experiments appeared relatively benign, they were surreptitiously sponsored by the CIA and that seems tantamount to a smoking gun.

Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh – a decorated Gulf War veteran – claimed to have been implanted with some kind of microchip while serving in the US Army. He also claimed he was yet another victim of MK-Ultra’s vast web.

McVeigh mugshot.jpg

Timothy McVeigh…also mind-controlled?

Interestingly, the US Army Major and mind control victim that Denzel Washington played in the 2004 remake of The Manchurian Candidate also had a microchip implanted in his body. Perhaps in a case of art imitating life, Washington’s character was also a decorated Gulf War veteran who served in Operation Desert Storm, just as McVeigh did.

The Manchurian Candidate 2004

Denzel Washington in ‘The Manchurian Candidate’.

The 1978 Jonestown massacre in the jungles of Guyana is considered by various independent investigators to have been a large scale MK-Ultra experiment. Until 9/11, the Jonestown tragedy had the dubious distinction of being the greatest loss of American civilian lives in one single act. (See more on Jonestown in chapter 10).

There are also possible MK-Ultra links to Ronald Reagan’s would-be assassin John Hinkley, Jr., as well as John Lennon’s killer Mark David Chapman. Suspiciously, a copy of The Catcher in the Rye was found on both men upon their arrest – suspicious as J.D. Salinger’s classic novel is said by many to be a mind control trigger device for MK-Ultra victims. (See chapter 27 for more on The Catcher in the Rye).

In 1976, more than two decades after MK-Ultra began, President Gerald Ford prohibited “experimentation with drugs on human subjects, except with the informed consent, in writing and witnessed by a disinterested party, of each such human subject.”

However, repeated rumors suggest the MK-Ultra program continues – probably under another codename and perhaps as a Black Op rather than a government-sanctioned project.

For example, some say mind control technologies were employed during the First Gulf War on Saddam Hussein’s million-strong Iraq army. This theory suggests the US army unleashed a type of advanced mind interference weapon so that Iraqi soldiers would lose their sanity and therefore surrender without much resistance or bloodshed. Although the Iraq army did surrender relatively quickly and there were reports of unusual goings on, it must be noted this Gulf War theory is not remotely proven and remains mere speculation.

Iraqi POW’s in the Gulf War…Insane?

At the civilian level, more MK-Ultra victims continue to come forward. In 1995, there were new US congressional hearings on MK-Ultra, which included statements made by mind control victims and the therapists who treated them.

Kentbridge’s guilt stemmed from the fact he’d reluctantly agreed to enter his orphans into the MK-Ultra program – and while they were still very young. Naylor had convinced him at the time Omega needed a way to control its orphans if any of them ever rebelled.The Ninth Orphan

Brainwashing rumors

The self-proclaimed mind control victims have gotten weirder and weirder in recent years. They include those who claim they have been Eyes Wide Shut-style sex slaves under mind control their entire lives.

A word of caution is needed when considering these recent and highly sensational mind control claims. Firstly, it must be taken into consideration that those who are mentally unstable can latch on to reported projects like MK-Ultra as a way of validating their existence or else attempting to circumnavigate their mental illness. Secondly, mind control reports in the 21st Century have become a lot more hazy. They should not be compared to the highly documented mind control projects of the 20th Century – like MK-Ultra.

That’s not to say some of these more recent reports are aren’t true. However, the problem is the whole mind control subject has now become entangled in celebrity worship and conspiracy theorists with hidden agendas.

Monarch

The Internet and sites like YouTube are awash with conspiracy theories about one of MK-Ultra’s rumored, yet so far unproven, spin-off programs – Project Monarch. Conspiracy theorists say Monarch involves, among other things, the control of famous artists in Hollywood and in the music industry in particular. The apparent aim being to negatively influence the masses.

Celebrities mentioned in connection with Monarch include dead icons like Marilyn Monroe, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Brittany Murphy, Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix and even Elvis Presley. Living stars supposedly in the program include almost every major celebrity alive – to our eyes at least. Stars that conspiracy theorists mention time and again include Britney Spears, Tiger Woods, Lady Gaga, Jay-Z, Megan Fox, Nicki Minaj, Paris Hilton, Katy Perry, Beyoncé, Miley Cyrus and Rihanna. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg in terms of names bandied around.

Lady Gaga's primary photo Michael Jackson's primary photo Megan Fox's primary photo

Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Megan Fox among those supposedly part of Monarch.

The key fact is Project Monarch’s existence is not verified by any declassified documents or any other official government materials for that matter. This is confirmed by Michael Barkun, a professor emeritus of political science at Syracuse University, who states in his 2003 book, A Culture of Conspiracy: Apocalyptic Visions in Contemporary America, that “scholarly and journalistic treatments of MK-ULTRA make no mention of a Project Monarch”.

Monarch is therefore far more speculative than MK-Ultra and other documented mind control programs. Frankly, Monarch tends to undermine those proven mind control projects.

You also have to factor in that small but vocal segment of society who are completely obsessed with celebrity and can never get enough stories about their favorite icons. Consider the countless conspiracies on Elvis let alone Michael Jackson, Princess Diana et al. Famous figures like these seem to attract conspiracy theories like moths to the flames. And certain fans of theirs – perhaps with sycophantic tendencies – seem programmed (no pun intended) to create or add to myths surrounding these celebrities.

Whenever celebrities die, the conspiracy theorists inevitably go into overdrive. All the speculation about the death of Fast and Furious star Paul Walker in late 2013 is possibly a good example of this disturbing phenomenon.

Paul Walker's primary photo

Paul Walker (1973-2013)

Although conspiracy theorists have arguably come up with some interesting circumstantial evidence on certain celebrities, it’s very possible Project Monarch is entirely fictitious. Or put another way, it could easily be a load of BS!

Naylor, who had always lusted after the seventeenth-born orphan, had misused his powers and treated the blue-eyed blonde as his personal sex slave. He’d resorted to using the MK-Ultra voice-commands to induce her to do whatever he asked. No-one else was aware of this. Not even his victim. In the process, after years of abuse, Seventeen had finally cracked. In medical terms, she had suffered a mental breakdown; in truth, she’d become yet another victim of MK-Ultra, and of Naylor. The Orphan Uprising

In the last 15 years or so, there has been a spate of popular movies released featuring mind control and including the incredible history of Project MK-Ultra. Examples include Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut, The Men Who Stare at Goats starring George Clooney, Conspiracy Theory with Mel Gibson, the Bourne series starring Matt Damon and The Manchurian Candidate with Denzel Washington.

Conspiracy theorists say these films spilled quite a few secrets and point to Kubrick’s Illuminati symbolism and mind controlled sex slaves in Eyes Wide Shut, the hypnotic triggers in The Manchurian Candidate as well as the post-assassination amnesia in the Bourne movies. Many of these cinematic moments do indeed appear to be based on actual MK-Ultra reports.

eyeswideshut_redemption.jpg

Many believe Stanley Kubrick included mind control warnings in ‘Eyes Wide Shut’.

On the flip side, Hollywood tends to embellish certain real-world conspiracies for the sake of entertainment. Unfortunately, these embellishments end up being added into the melting pot of mind control lore. When the public are so easily influenced by movies, books and other forms of entertainment, it often makes it difficult to distinguish fiction from reality.

As novelists and filmmakers ourselves, we are guilty of this as well. And here’s an inside tip about the entertainment industry: When it comes to bending the truth to assist a story’s plot versus staying completely true to the facts, we can assure you any dramatist will always select the former. Mark Twain’s old saying “Never let the truth get in the way of a good story” still reigns in Hollywood.

And, of course, we could be totally wrong in all our assumptions concerning mind control. In which case, you can now relax in the knowledge that your thoughts are indeed your own. No governments or corporations are waging war on your mind. You’re just being paranoid!

Just in case though, maybe keep wearing that tinfoil hat until all the facts are in…
