Be Very Afraid. Nick Redfern in “Control: MKUltra, Chemtrails and the Conspiracy to Suppress the Masses,” has a label for those who want to destroy our lives and our freedoms: “Controllers.” Their agenda is the total control of the human race, so it’s an apt “moniker.” Redfern gives the reader an introduction to the plan they have for us: use of acoustic weapons to disperse crowds***use of drones to watch us all the time***a dark world where “A Brave New World” meets “1984.”***despicable operations designed to massively depopulate the planet, reducing the population from 7 billion to 1 billion, by unleashing terrible viruses that only the Controllers have the antidote for***a plan to dumb down the masses by limiting access to media, banning books, not making politics and history accessible to students*** increased use of mind-altering medicine, such as antidepressants, mood-altering drugs in tandem with programs secretly encouraging obesity, lethargy and ill-health***a plan to panic the masses by setting up a false flag alien invasion-I think this is called Project Blue Beam. Nobody will be fooled if they care at all.***increased use of mind-altering and mind-controlling technologies to put the masses under an iron-like grip***a project to monitor every book and magazine ever read by every person. This was all taking its sneaky, snaky course until Edward Snowden exposed the NSA surveillance program. He received asylum in Russia for 3 years and Putin is thinking about whether to extradite him to the US. Snowden was particularly vilified for exposing the program PRISM, which collects and stores electronic data on a massive scale. George W Bush pushed it through Congress via a) the Protect America Act of 2007 and b) the FISA Amendment Act of 2008 (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act). These Acts permit the gathering of electronic data from countless sources—and, in the process, protect those same sources from prosecution. What outraged many people was who the sources were that Snowden blew the whistle on. And the fact that these companies had cooperated with the NSA. They included Sprint, Yahoo, AT&T, Facebook, YouTube, Verizon, Google, Microsoft, Apple, and this was just the top of the list. The world quickly realized that the NSA had carte blanche to go through all the emails, photos, instant messages, texts, voicemail, and live conversations of every US resident and without any concern for privacy. If the NSA was creating files on terrorists, nobody would have complained, but instead they were accessing the bank records, patient files and library records of ordinary citizens. They were creating a database on the reading habits of the entire US population! (Redfern) Glenn Greenwald, the journalist who broke the story of Snowden, said that NSA employees can read whatever emails they choose, listen to any phone conversation they choose, browse histories at will and read Microsoft Word documents anytime “with no need to go to court or even get supervisor approval.” James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence, tried to clarify things and was caught in a lie. He said that the program only targeted overseas individuals and groups that were potentially threatening to the US. And he said more: “Section 702 of FISA is designed to facilitate the acquisition of foreign intelligence information concerning non-US persons located outside the United States…The unauthorized disclosure of information about this important and entirely legal program is reprehensible and risks important protections for the security of Americans.” Clapper just before this on March 13, 2013 had said that the NSA wasn’t “wittingly” collecting data on hundreds of millions of Americans. This turned out to be a lie; the Snowden files showed the NSA to be doing just that (Redfern). When caught, Clapper said: “I responded in what I thought was the most truthful or least untruthful manner by saying “no.” Our author has chills running up his spine. It truly sounds like “1984” doublespeak. President Obama had his say on June 7, 2013: “Bipartisan majorities have approved the (programs). Congress is continually briefed on how these are conducted. There are a whole range of safeguards involved…You can’t have 100 percent security and then also have 100 percent privacy and zero inconvenience. You know, we’re going to have to make some choices as a society.” That in itself sounds ominous.
