Domestic terrorism has come to light with the Sikh shooting. The US government is not only coming after the 2nd Amendment, but now framing US Army veterans in a false flag operation where extremists are the new threat.
Mainstream media (MSM) are pushing the gunman’s background as an Army veteran who “may have been a white supremacist” with a “9/11 tattoo”. US investigators are saying that the suspect shot by police, Wade Michael Page, was a psychological operations specialist from Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Page was trained in parachute deployment and had a good conduct record while also receiving the National Defense Service Medal.
Page’s work as a psy-op specialist would have consisted of analysis, development and distribution of intelligence used to coerce the general population for a specific and desired psychological effect. While some MSM reports are claiming that psy-ops are reserved for foreign nations, it is clear that the US military conduct them on Americans routinely.
The US government’s definition of a psychological operation is an “integrated employment of the core capabilities of electronic warfare, computer network operations, psychological operations, military deception, and operations security, in concert with specified supporting and related capabilities, to influence, disrupt, corrupt or usurp adversarial human and automated decision making while protecting our own. Also called IO.”

[NaturalNews] Media outlets are now reporting that Wade Michael Page, the accused Sikh Temple shooter, received a less-than-honorable discharge from the US Army in 1998, after his last posting in a psychological operations unit at Fort Bragg.
Prior to that, Page worked as a missile system repairman. Immediately, questions are raised. Under what circumstances does a missile repair man suddenly switch to a psyops unit? In preparation for later use as a patsy?
Furthermore, given the level of intelligence needed for either of those jobs, we are supposed to believe that Page couldn’t tell the difference between Muslims and Sikhs? The confusion between those two religious groups has been advanced as a reason for a “misdirected” attack on the Wisconsin Sikh Temple.
And now, the Southern Poverty Law Center is weighing in with its profile of Page as a musician in two white-power bands, Definite Hate and End Apathy. SPLC states the lyrics of those groups are filled with genocidal hate against Jews and other minorities.
Missile repair man morphs into psyops specialist and then morphs into genocidal white power musician. At the very least, an odd bio that needs a great deal more explanation before anyone with two active brain cells would buy it.
But the major media don’t need active brain cells. All they need is the ability to parrot an official narrative emerging from “reliable sources.” And as long as the agendas of stimulating “blacks versus whites” and tighter gun control are advanced, actual facts don’t matter.
So we have a neuroscience student killing people in a theater, and now a psyops specialist killing people in a temple. Psyops and neuroscience are both dedicated to manipulating the brain. We’re supposed to ignore this strange coincidence and simply move along because there’s nothing to see? There couldn’t be an MKULTRA connection in here somewhere?
Lost in the chaos of these two massacres, there was a prior church shooting in Aurora, Colorado.
On April 22nd of this year, members of the New Destiny Church were heading toward a massacre.
As the April 24, 2012, Huffington Post reported, convicted felon, Kiarron Parker, 29, in an unexplained agitated state, drove erratically into the Church lot, crashed his car, got out, and, without reason, fired his gun at the pastor’s mother, who had rushed from the Church service to see what she could do to help. Parker opened fire and put five bullets into her, killing her.
Parker then started to enter the Church, where who knows how much more killing he would have done. The pastor’s cousin, an off-duty cop named Antonio Milow, who, unlike private Aurora citizens, could legally carry a gun in Aurora, and was carrying, shot and killed Parker.
Was this another covert op, planned as a massacre, that was foiled by chance because a policeman happened to be in church that day? Was New Destiny Church supposed to be the first in a series of ops?
The ancient psyops adage applies to these days: order out of chaos.
The order is: outlawing guns; tighter surveillance throughout the land (if that’s even possible, given what we already have); “come home to the government, we will protect you”; individuals who stand outside the collective are crazy and dangerous; remain passive and wait for our leaders to take action; report all suspicious activity.
Why in the world should we believe this won’t work?
There is only one good reason. Because too many people love freedom too much. Remember that.
US government ran chemical experiments on military veterans under operations MKUltra, Bluebird and Artichoke

[NaturalNews] The United States, for its warts, has achieved much in its short 230-plus year history. It is a benevolent world superpower, for the most part, that serves as a beacon of hope and freedom for an increasingly oppressed world, even as it serves as a guardian against tyranny for as many as half of the world’s nearly seven billion people.
But a few chapters in our history – slavery, oppression of the Native American tribes, causes of the civil rights movement, and moments of unconstitutionality on the part of our elected leaders – serve as more than simple blemishes on an otherwise admirable record of defending liberty and freedom. One such stain is the way we’ve treated some of our nation’s military veterans.
The maltreatment is summed up in a recent federal case. In late July, a group of veterans managed to win a court order forcing the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to hand over a trove of documents detailing the department’s alleged Cold War-era drug experiments on Vietnam vets. What’s problematic about this case isn’t the decision – the VA owes these veterans any answers they are seeking – but the fact that the case had to be filed at all.
According to court documents, U.S. Magistrate Judge Jacqueline Scott Corley, in Oakland, Calif., said in her ruling that the documents requested by the veteran-plaintiffs were “squarely relevant” to their claim that the government, through the VA, did not adequately notify veterans of chemicals they were purposely exposed to during experimentation, and – perhaps more importantly – what effects that exposure might have had on their physical and mental health.
Details of this sad episode in our history were contained in a 2009 class action suit. Filed by the Vietnam Veterans of America and individual soldiers, the suit charges the U.S. Army and the Central Intelligence Agency, with the help of former Nazi scientists, of using at least 7,800 vets as guinea pigs to test the effects of as many as 400 different types of drugs and chemicals. They included mescaline (psychedelic alkaloid), LSD (psychedelic drug), amphetamines, barbiturates, nerve agents and mustard gas.
The suit also says the government worked to cover up the testing and the nature of its experiments, which began in the 1950s under such exotic code names as “Bluebird,” “Artichoke” and MKUltra.”
The government launched “Project Paperclip,” the suit alleges, an all-out effort by the Army and CIA to allegedly recruit former Nazi scientists to help test various psycho-chemicals, as well as develop a new truth serum using the nation’s own vets as test subjects, Courthouse News Service reported.
“Over half of these Nazi recruits had been members of the SS or Nazi Party,” said the class-action suit. “The ‘Paperclip’ name was chosen because so many of the employment applications were clipped to immigration papers.”
According to Colin A. Ross, a psychiatrist and author of “The CIA Doctors,” said he pored over more than 15,000 documents he received from the nation’s premier spy agency detailing the “mind control” operations which he said took place between 1950-1972 “at many leading universities including Harvard, Yale, Cornell, Johns Hopkins and Stanford.”
The goal, simply, is mind control
In a report posted on the Citizens Commission on Human Rights International’s Web site, Ross said “MKUltra and related programs had several over-lapping purposes.”
“One was to purchase mind control drugs from suppliers. Another was to form relationships with researchers who might later be used as consultants at the TOP SECRET level,” he wrote. “The core purpose of these programs was to learn how to enhance interrogations, erase and insert memories, and create and run Manchurian Candidates.”
Ross said all of that is documented “clearly and explicitly” in the declassified CIA documents he obtained, though he said it was merely “a glimpse into the tip of the iceberg of CIA and military mind control.”
“The experimental subjects were not told the real purpose of the experiments, did not give informed consent, were not afforded outside counsel and received no meaningful follow-up,” he wrote. “As described by the psychiatrists in published papers, experiments with LSD and other hallucinogens, combined with sensory deprivation, electroshock and other interrogation techniques, resulted in psychosis and death among other ‘side effects.’ The purpose of these experiments was to see how easily a person could be put into a psychotic state or controlled.”
In a review of the MKUltra program, which was launched in 1953, Wired.com said its goal was, simply, mind-control.
“1953: The agency launches one of its most dubious covert programs ever, turning unsuspecting humans into guinea pigs for its research into mind-altering drugs,” said the report, which said then-Central Intelligence Agency director Allen Dulles authorized the program.
“Dulles wanted to close the ‘brainwashing gap’ that arose after the United States learned that American prisoners of war in Korea were subjected to mind-control techniques by their captors,” said Wired.com.
“Loathe to be outdone by foreign enemies, the CIA sought, through its research, to devise a truth serum to enhance the interrogations of POWs and captured spies. The agency also wanted to develop techniques and drugs – such as ‘amnesia pills’ – to create CIA superagents (sic) who would be immune to the mind-control efforts of adversaries.”
The creation of so-called Manchurian Candidates – a programmable assassin, essentially – was also a goal of the program.
Besides drug and chemical experimentation, the program included the use of radiological implants, hypnosis and subliminal persuasion, electroshock therapy and isolation techniques, the report said.
In their suit, the vets level similar charges – that the government was attempting to develop and test substances capable of inducing mind control, euphoria, altered personalities, confusion, physical paralysis, mania, illogical thinking and other effects.
Many of the experiments, the suit says, were conducted at Army facilities at Edgewood Arsenal and Ft. Detrick, Md. Some left a number of veterans saddled with debilitating health problems for decades to follow. Worse, the veterans say the government has neglected to provide follow-up medical care to mitigate the damages.
Some soldiers died from the testing, while others suffered physical and mental ailments including seizures and paranoia, an earlier ruling in the case noted.
In this latest bid for full disclosure, the VVA sought documents from the government that reveal the VA’s processes of identifying and notifying soldiers who may have been exposed to the chemical and biological tests.
No relevant medical purposes
In arguing against releasing the documents, attorneys for the VA said the agency should be exempted from doing so by the deliberative process privilege, which aims to shield the decision-making processes of government agencies.
Judge Corley did not buy the argument, ruling instead that that veterans group and others “have demonstrated a sufficient, substantial need to overcome the qualified deliberative process privilege.”
“The Court agrees that considerable discovery has been provided on this subject; however, having reviewed the thousands of pages of documents submitted for in camera review, the Court notes that these processes are far from clear or consistent, and in fact, seem to have undergone numerous modifications over time,” she wrote.
Corley ordered the VA to release more than 40 documents, which she said were “both relevant and unavailable from other sources given that the documents reflect processes which have evolved over time.”
Writes Ross, “The purpose of mind control experiments is controlling human behavior: making enemy combatants open up during interrogation; protecting secret information by erasing memories; making spies more resistant to interrogation because secret information is held by hidden identities and making people more prone to influence, social control and suggestion.
“The mind control experiments and operational programs violate basic human rights and all codes of medical ethics,” he said.
The government should never use American citizens or others for any sort of experimentation, at least without first getting consent. Using those who protect and defend us for the same is unspeakable.

[NaturalNews] Eight U.S. Army veterans have claimed in court that the federal government denied their medical claims and that the government regularly does so with scores of other veterans as part of a “standardized” practice.
In the suit, the vets – led by plaintiff Dannie Fail – claim the Army’s Servicemembers Group Life Insurance Traumatic Injury (TSGLI) program “has standardized the practices of denying claims [from injured veterans] in a manner that is arbitrary, unsupported by its own guidelines and contrary to law.”
They went onto say that the program routinely denies benefits to vets injured overseas and elsewhere, which in turn forces them to utilize an appeals process to get their benefits – a process which often can be lengthy and taxing, financially and mentally.
In their suit, all eight plaintiffs said their injuries were legitimate – all were certified as such by a medical professional.
The complaint does not detail the veterans’ injuries specifically, but it does list what sorts of injuries qualify them for the benefits.
Forced to appeal, with uncertain results
“There are nine categories of losses covered as follows: 1) Sensory losses, 2) Burns, 3) Paralysis, 4) Amputation, 5) Limb salvage, 6) Facial reconstruction, 7) Activities of daily living, 8) Inpatient hospitalization, 9) Coma/TBI (traumatic brain injury) combined with another injury,” says the complaint.
When injured veterans seek coverage, say the plaintiffs, the U.S. government “adds a criterion negating ADL [Activities of Daily Living] coverage where there can be adaptive behavior to accomplish the activity, even though the adaptive standard is not contained in the manual or guideline.”
Each of the plaintiffs – identified in the complaint as Fail, Scott Buchholz, Christian Andersonn, John Zonta, Stacey Truax, Timothy Melson, Scott Philbrick, and Jedadiah Zillmer, all of whom live in Colorado – say they followed the government’s requirements in filing their claims, which included obtaining letters from independent physicians certifying that their “traumatic injuries” left each of them unable to work.
All of them; however, were denied their benefits.

In a damning new 115 page self-learning course from the U.S. Army Military Police School at Fort McClellan originally issued in April 2006, we learn that the military has a detailed and brutal plan in store in times of mass civil unrest in the United States.
This likely comes as no surprise to readers of End the Lie who are familiar with my work on the military’s Internment/Resettlement Operations manual (video is also embedded below), my coverage of the designation of civilian internee in military literature, my coverage of KBR’s so-called “National Quick Response Teams,” and the FEMA “National Responder Support Camps.”
However, this document (embedded below), originally published on July 6 by Public Intelligence, reveals some quite disturbing and clearly institutionalized practices which can and will be used in a time of civil unrest.
It is important to note that this document specifically states:
“The same operational procedures that apply to the operation of installation confinement facilities [see above video] and treatment of detainees apply to these temporary facilities except that those policies and procedures establishing training, employment, mail and correspondence, and administrative discipline requirements will not apply.”
However, the course cites Field Manual (FM) 3-19.40, originally issued in August of 2001, which appears to be the earlier version of the FM 3-39.40, originally published in February of 2010. Obviously since this edition of the course is dated April 2006, FM 3-39.40 didn’t exist at the time it was written.
At this point it is also noteworthy to point out that the document says:
“The Army will not operate facilities for confinement, custody, or detention of civilian personnel apprehended for violation of local or state laws as long as civil confinement facilities, operated by the Department of Justice, state, or local agencies are sufficient to accommodate the number of persons apprehended.”
Therefore, it appears to be the case that military detention facilities will not be used unless there are not sufficient facilities operated by the DOJ, state or local law enforcement.
At least we can hope to be thrown in a dangerous, filthy, and overcrowded “civil confinement” facility instead of a military internment camp.
If the military does set up detention facilities, “These facilities will be operated only until custody of the persons detained can be transferred to and assumed by civil authorities.
They will not be used for the confinement of persons charged or convicted under civil jurisdiction.”
However, this was written long before the National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year 2012 and the indefinite detention sections included which allow the military to hold Americans without charge or trial indefinitely.
These above guidelines have almost certainly been removed having been given this power when Obama signed the NDAA.
While a judge indeed stepped up against the indefinite detention sections of the NDAA, I seriously doubt that this decision would be honored in a time when the military is actually rolled out to quell civil unrest.

The DOD is throwing away money again. Tonight they win our tool time award for costly mistakes and being drastically over budget on never ending projects. The army is ditching their ACUs and computer system upgrades are over 7 billion dollars over budget.
