2017: When the NSA Feared Psychics Could Make Cities Lost in Time and Space

A version of this story originally appeared on Muckrock.com. A classified government document opens with “an odd sequence of events relating to parapsychology has occurred within the last month” and concluded with an alarming question about psychics nuking cities so that they became lost in time and space. If this sounds like a plot out of science fiction, it is – but it’s also an NSA memo from 1977. The first “event” raised by the NSA note is a CIA report which mentioned KGB research into parapsychology. According to this, the KGB used hobbyists and non-governmental researchers to talk to western scientists. This allowed the KGB to collect useful information without putting themselves into a position to accidentally leak confidential information to westerners. According to the NSA note, this tactic yielded “high grade western scientific data.” The next event described by the NSA note was what appeared to be a Russian provocation, though […] Read More

2015: RETIRED CIA AGENT CONFESSES ON DEATHBED: “I KILLED MARILYN MONROE”

Dying CIA officer Normand Hodges claims he assassinated 37 people, including Marilyn Monroe. The 78-year-old said he worked for the CIA for 41 years as an operative. He also admitted to acting as a hitman for the governmental agency. Normand Hodges is slowly dying. The retired CIA officer confessed to committing the assassinations during his stay at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, in Norfolk, Virginia, according to a World News Daily report. Normand Hodges swears he remembers vividly, each of the assassinations he committed for the CIA. He claims that all 37 of the murders he committed on the American soil, were ordered by his commanding officer, Major James “Jimmy” Hayworth. (Photo via World News Daily) Hodges was trained in martial arts and as a sniper. However, the former CIA agent said he is well versed in using explosives and poisons. According to Hodges, Marilyn Monroe was the only woman […] Read More

1998: CIA Dirty Secrets? Why, I'm SHOCKED! SHOCKED!!

On March 18, 1998, the CIA’s Inspector General, Fred Hitz, finally let the cat out of the bag in an aside at a Congressional hearing. Hitz told the astounded US Reps that the CIA had maintained relationships with companies and individuals that the Agency knew to be involved in the drug business.  Even more astonishingly, Hitz revealed that back in 1982 the CIA had requested and received from Reagan’s Justice Department clearance not to report any knowledge it might have of drug-dealing by CIA assets. With these two admissions Hitz definitively sank many years’ worth of CIA denials, much of it under oath to Congress. Hitz’s admissions also made fools of some of the most prominent names in US journalism, and vindicated investigators and critics of the Agency, ranging from Al McCoy to Gary Webb. The involvement of the CIA with drug traffickers is a story that has slouched into the limelight every decade or so since the creation of the Agency. […] Read More

1971: WHO WAS CHARLIE MANSON!

MAE BRUSSELL‘S BROADCAST NO. 16, OCTOBER 13, 1971 GLORIA BARON: This is Dialogue: Assassination with research specialist Mae Brussell. For KLRB I’m Gloria Baron. Well Mae, we promised them last week that you would be doing the Manson trial this week. And I guess from the looks of things you’re ready. MAE BRUSSELL: Yes. I’m ready and I’m not ready. I would like lots of hours on this, but it’s really big and we’ll get right into it. I had ten other subjects I wanted to talk about today, but it would delay the Manson story, so we’ll go into it, Gloria, right away. Because in this world, in this strange world of covert overthrow of the governments and clandestine armies and secret operations, the problem we’re facing is that you’re working with two realities: you’re working with what we assume is the real way to function and move.

2005: NSA and the Clipper Chip

by Chuck Dupree I wrote what follows in 1995 as a letter to my Congressional representatives. The final product was significantly longer than I intended, as I got caught up in recounting the abuses of the Nixon era. A discussion of the Clipper chip is not likely to interest most readers these days. (Briefly, it was a government-approved encryption chip with a built-in back door, called the Law Enforcement Exploitation Field.) Nevertheless, I include this document here for two reasons. Mainly, because the first two-thirds recounts some history that seems more relevant than ever given the attacks on privacy and liberty we’;ve suffered since 9/11. Secondarily, because it’;s appeared around the web in bastardized form (frequently missing the third word of the first sentence, for instance). It’;s often been marked as copyrighted by Quadralay Corporation, but in fact Quadralay had nothing to do with it and would, I expect, […] Read More

1995: BATF/IRS — Criminal Fraud

by William Cooper CAJI News Service — Exclusive Veritas Issue Number 6 September 1995 Forward by Dan Meador The following report was sent via FAX from one of our IRS triage people in the Northeast — the FAX transmission was marginal grade and the original title was not included. There are a few holes where the type was not legible, so three or four lines are missing. The article appeared in the September 1995 issue of Veritas Magazine, published by William Cooper. The magazine can be secured by writing to P.O. Box 3390, St. Johns, Arizona <85936>. Cooper wrote the article, Cooper and Wayne Bentson did the research. I verified most material immediately in the federal depository at the Oklahoma State University library, and everything alleged in the article that I’ve had time to follow up on, including the fact that IRS and BATF are not listed in Chapter […] Read More

2007: DHS has designated the 1982 film TRON as Sensitive

BURBANK, CA – Reports are emerging from members of the movie industry that the Department of Homeland Security has designated the 1982 film TRON as “sensitive”, and ordered Walt Disney Studios to turn over all copies of the film in its possession. Retailers are also receiving notices to remove all copies of the film from stock shelves and turn them over to Federal officials. The reports have industry insiders bewildered and outraged. TRON is a science fiction film that takes place within a computer’s circuits. Protagonist Kevin Flynn is pulled into the computer via laser by the malevolent Master Control Program. However, official concern reportedly centers around a portion of the movie’s live-action sequence which was filmed at Shiva, a nuclear fusion research facility created at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Constructed in 1977 for research into generating fusion energy, Shiva used a battery of enormous lasers to smash […] Read More
