Mind Kontrol

In our previous discussions on Mind programming, we discussed how trauma is used on children in facilities which were set up by the elite, through the CIA, in order to deceive the masses and ignorant parents into supporting the torture and murder of their own children. The elite’s use mind control programming on everyone in society has made it all too easy for the blind to participate gladly in this industry.

For more detail on this see our previous discussions here and here.

Places like these have all been set up, or taken over, by the elite to perform their rituals. Mind Kontrol is nothing new. The oldest form of mass mind control is Religion. However the elite have been performing this for thousands of years. It is nothing new. The elite form organizations of all forms to herd the blind masses into buildings for mass mind kontrol experimentation. These organizations (schools, churches, patriotic and very “selective” groups like KKK and Black Panthers, and more) have been used by the elite to bring a mass amount of people into a controlled (by the elite) environment-with a selected “doctrine” or “syllabus” which the elite have written themselves-using ritualistic brain washing by chanting, pledging, and (mostly in religion) the use of scents, music and other continuous, repetitive programming techniques. Clubs and groups that are very segregated and divided in teachings and rituals were created by the elite, to serve their purposes.

So what does trauma actually do to a child? How does it actually affect us?
Individuals who reported six or more adverse childhood experiences had an average life expectancy two decades shorter than those who reported none.

Levels of Brainwashing and Mind Control from Least to Most Complex and Binding, used in combinations:
1. Terrified Submission: Outward compliance, but one’s own beliefs and identity are preserved. .
2. Willful Compliance: A disturbed or abused child/adolescent/adult is provided with objects, drugs, affection, sex, “freedom”, etc., and chooses the abuser over his/her current life situation.
3. Stockholm Syndrome: Terror (abuser harms victim or threatens victim and his/her family with violence), plus isolation from prior support, often combined with lies of family abandonment, lead to dependence on abuser(s), and perceived loyalty to the abuser.
4. Religious Indoctrination: A psychologically weak or dependent person submits to a charismatic leader who claims to be spiritually connected to some kind of God, professing to be chosen for a spiritual agenda, promises salvation to devotees and eternal damnation promised to non-followers.
5. Brainwashing through Social influence: An individual is placed only among successful “converts” to the abuser or cult, who profess the belief system of the group, while the person is isolated from family and previous support systems and activities.
6. Brainwashing through Deprivation of Basic Needs: Sleep, food, water, combined with chanting, social isolation, etc.
7. Self-View as an Accomplice or Evil: Abuser forces victim into double-binds that cause the victim to feel culpable.
8. Unidimensional directives: are communicated during severe abuse, convincing affected personalities that the abuse will re-occur if the programmed mandate is broken. The most common are, “Remember to forget” the abuse and “Don’t tell” about the abuse. A central function of most mind control is to cause the victim to physically and psychologically re-experience the torture used to install the programming should she or he act in violation of programmed commands. The re-experience of the original torture often includes somatic manifestation of the original injuries, such as bruising and swelling, though not to the degree of the original injury.
9. Spiritual “Programming: Evil attachments, claims, curses, covenants, etc. Witchcraft ritual abuse seeks to “attach” evil entities (spirits of abusers and demons) to dissociated identities to harass and control victims for their entire lives. Claims, curses, covenants, hexes, vexes, etc. are used to forever malevolently define victims as evil, physically or mentally ill, socially devalued and isolated, sexually enslaved, a murderer, a cult member, a witch, etc.
10. Psychic driving: Taped messages are played for hours non-stop while the person is in states of consciousness altered by sleep, electro-shock, sensory deprivation, inadequate food, water, sleep, oxygen, isolated, confinement or other torture.

  • First Stage: In the First Stage of electroshock amnesia, the subject loses much of her recent memory, “yet she still knew where she was, why she was there, and who the people were who treated her.”. That is called keeping your “space-time image.” The subject knows where she is, why she is there, and recognizes familiar faces. Names are harder.
  • Second Stage: In the Second Electroshock Amnesia Stage, the subject loses that space-time image and is aware of the loss. That awareness causes extreme anxiety. The subject wants to remember. At his stage the subject asks repeatedly, ‘Where am I?’, ‘How did I get here?’, ‘What am I here for?’
  • Third Stage: In this final stage, the subject becomes bizarrely calm. All the previous anxiety is gone. At this point the patient was moved back to their room where a speaker phone had been placed under their pillow, a tape recorder with a continuous loop played repeating the same command over and over again. While in this state, patients showed incontinence of both urine and feces. Mental state of a new born.

11. Machiavellian manipulation: of the inner psychological world of the child.
12. Trauma-based Coercive Mind Control: Trauma-based mind control programming can be defined as systematic torture that blocks the victim’s capacity for conscious processing.

Mind Control: Simple to Complex


These programs use electro-shock “therapy”, ice baths, drugs of all kinds, rape and other tortures on babies and children in order to program them…the right way. We will discuss the methods used later.

gfb“To be ‘cured’ against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level with those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals. But to be punished, however severely, because we have deserved it, because we ‘ought to have known better’, is to be treated as a human person made in God’s image…”-C.S.Lewis

When trauma happens:
There is increased alertness and when the shock is induced again, the brain detaches. During this time is when the programmer can imprint onto the mind-while the person has detached from reality because of shock and terror.

People’s brains develop capabilities suited reflect the world they are raised in. If that world is characterized by threat, chaos, unpredictability, fear and trauma, the brain will reflect that by altering the development of the neural systems involved in the stress and fear response as the brain develops what is used and needed during growth. When trauma is introduced during the “growth stage” of brain function (infancy through adolescence) the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis is hurt and if trauma persists it becomes “worn out”, causing it to “give up” working. HPA, the key area involved in memory, cognition and arousal stops growing and maturing.

When one is in the mind control program, the point of the trauma is to fracture the brain in such a way it can not heal but instead be manipulated by the programmer. During this extreme period, the victim will dissociate (mentally separate themselves from the experience). They mentally detached from their bodies, on the ceiling, or somewhere else in the room watching what is happening to them, a child may cut off or lose touch with aspects of self. Dissociation can affect a child’s ability to be fully present in activities of daily life and can significantly fracture sense of time and continuity which can effect learning, classroom behavior, and social interactions. It may appear as if the child is simply “spacing out,” daydreaming, or not paying attention when they are dissociating. This can be difficult and for most completely impossible to control. One can dissociate at any time, for any length of time if they are unable to control it.

The prefrontal cortex which is still developing in children, is slow to activate, it does not react quick enough nor is it developed enough to know how to be able to evaluate trauma and give the correct response answer. In child trauma the limbic system is activated since it is a fast reactive area. By reacting so quickly the important cortex is pushed aside which only furthers the damage to developmental progress. Only calm arousal allows activation of the prefrontal cortex needed for learning and problem solving. That is where “innocence is lost”. Not only do these programs rob of physical innocence of bodily experiences, but more damaging, irreversible, unhealable, and unforgettable, is the robbing of mental development: neurological murder. Child trauma steals the ability to develop completely. This is vital to being a full human and affecting the victim in every aspect of life from that moment until they die.

That is not all by far… Our limbic system initiates the fight, flight or freeze responses to threat. The amygdala and the hippocampus are part of the limbic system. In 1993 a study found a 38% increased rate of limbic abnormalities following physical abuse, 49% after sexual abuse, and 113% following abuse of more than one type combined. This reflects ONLY SINGLE TRAUMA EVENT. NOT REPETITIVE. The amygdala is what takes info from the prefrontal cortex and responds with the correct hormone. (If it’s good: relax response and if bad: stress response) When repetitive trauma occurs this section naturally becomes immune to the response of stress hormones and automatically sends stress to ALL info received.

Many parts of the brain are extremely slow to mature, and sometimes never fully do once trauma and programming has been done. Trauma to the brain at a young age leaves an inability to maximize personal gain, computation, deception and lying. This directly affects how an individual decides what to do when faced with conflicting rules, executive functions, handling complex social situations, seeing the intentions of other people. Trauma creates suppression of selfish behavior, difficulty in commitment in a relationship since comprehension is damaged. Dopamine receptors are blocked. And they are used easily by all they meet. Unless they can break the programming and heal.

This is a very short peek into some of the damages every brain undergoes in trauma.

There is little wonder, with this very small look into the affects just one aspect of mind control used on us all, through every generation. Be it by an abusive parent or a disciplinary school, a behavior modification facility or summer camp. Until people treat fellow humans as humans and stop the abuse they continue on others-mostly because of our constant brainwashing through generations telling us “that’s normal” and “that’s how I was raised”-this will continue to grow.

Until we all realize and act as children are human beings, in need of guidance, respect and love, nothing will change. The mind kontrolled parents will feed the systems in place to further destroy the next generation. Placing their children in correction programs because they are “out of hand” or “we can’t get through to them”. Instead of doing their jobs, as guardians, they give them over to programs, schools, camps and facilities to break their minds through ritual abuse. Some more brain washed people sign up for “parenting classes and experiments” in Universities. These Universities run by the Jesuit elite, are set up by their design, of course, like every system of control. We have all already been programmed by them from birth, especially military and government families who have the deepest brain washing, to be what we are.

Perhaps you are the good church-goer, always doing what you were told was right by the church. You followed the rules and every person around you has nothing but good things to say-you are the perfect example. You decide to go to a good college or University and have worked very hard to get there. You go to Temple University, or St. Joseph’s U, or Loyola U, or Liberty U or the like. These are what we are told are the best colleges. We are programmed. By the elite to strive to go to their education. So you get accepted and once you finish your education you are told the reality of the situation. Most figure it out and either leave or go with it because we are told these rich, important people are who we should be. At the end of the education you are told you can follow these guidelines, do what you wish within this code-under oath and contract-or you can try to make it on your own (which most are destroyed trying, or worse). You have worked your entire life for this. Either you are so programmed and indoctrinated already that it matters very little to you and you think it is the right thing to do, so you sign the papers and get the degree and start your life.

You will have to pay for it, if you ever get prosperous enough. Regardless of your field of choice.

Perhaps you want to be a lawyer and defend the innocent. The noble dreams of many. Or perhaps a doctor or a judge. Again, you will try to go to the best colleges and Universities which you are told are the best (for the only purpose of pulling you into another mind programming organization) like Georgetown U, Princeton, Harvard, Cornell or CalTech, or Stanford. The same program detailed above will apply to you. Upon your graduation you will have a choice, likely you will be involved in many societies and groups in the university…as one must for “campus life”. You will either agree and if you turn out well, they will keep you under their constant watch and control.

People contribute in these every day brain washing mind control experiments through their whole lives.

And others, the upper class men and not-so-elite elite, of society participate willingly in the mind control programs the elite reveal to them. Some believe their child will go to this program (like Disney or Space Camp or simply elite groups for music, singing, dancing, sports, etc) and then they will be in a more elite circle of friends and may become a star.  disn

Some people get caught doing things the elite do, raping children, and the like, and are not only taken in by them, but supported and advanced. That is why rapist and murderers walk free, if they are in with the elite.

Many people take classes given nice, discrete names (as always) like “parenting classes” and such, where they are trained what methods to use, how to do the trauma, and all the specifics. They are made into the controllers. They sign their children up, at times before they are conceived, as much trauma for the mind control program is done before birth. They are kept in constant supervision, by their “friends” and “teachers”. Many times calling them “uncle” and “aunt” when there is no relation at all. They are there for guidance and help in training the controller (one of the parents usually) in how to break the mind and program each section into a different program. Then another person is brought in. A handler. This role is very different but is interlocked in the controllers job. They work together, usually the handler is one with military or government experience-one of them.

To everyone not directly involved in the program these families are very normal, perhaps exceptional. The fake face they must wear is not only part of the programming but the reason these programs are not known, even by some who participate in them. This is why children grow up not even knowing they were in a program and not a normal childhood.

Then as the damaged children grow the elites control of the medical and pharmaceutical fields is ever useful at creating new disorders and diseases and vaccines and pills, pumping society full of psychology and drugs which only further cements the thought that “this is normal”. Tell a lie often enough it becomes the truth.

Many go through life without seeing the control and power structures in place in every area of their life. Our minds have been programmed from birth. Until we are able to see this and unravel every lie we have been told-everything we think we know-the brain washing will continue.

There are many excellent documentaries and articles out now which detail the programs techniques, symbols used, how they harvest children and use cps for the darker side of the programming, and such. So we will continue.

Some history of mind control:

We have already discussed the oath that the elite live by. To refresh your memory you can read it here.

This oath is sworn by all in the power of the now called Jesuit, elite. This oath of secrecy is sworn by all in their clubs: Freemason, Knights of Malta, Church of the Brethren, and all secret societies. It is only people in these societies who are able to obtain positions of power in government, media, hollywood, music, and every area of society. This oath of secrecy is unable to be broken, without giving up your life. All of the organizations under the control of the elite function (the majority never knowing what they are a part of) according to their agenda: to destroy us all.

This is how it is kept so secret from the general public-those who never look further, ask questions or research. However, thanks to the internet, we are able to now find much info we couldn’t before. Especially about more recent events and programs they have done. Do not be deceived in thinking that because a whistle blower comes forth with info and exposes the elite, that what they do stops. It never stops.

During the middle ages, the same programs and methods were in place and practiced in society. Victims were stripped naked, chained, and cast into dungeons and cages. Poked with needles and things to cause pain and fear and trauma. Rape and all forms of sexual abuse. Carving of genitalia is on of the elite’s favorite past-times: another way to spot them through religion and cults and organizations. Sometimes the victim is tied down, a cloth stuffed in their mouths, water poured into the cloth, causing it to swell. Water-boarding is not new! A more creative form of trauma programming was the rack, used to dislocate shoulders and hips. Methods used then and now such as denied sleep and denied toilet time. Loud noise for days on end. Anything to make the victims senses overwhelmed to the extreme without break. Until they die or dissociate. Much of the mental trauma is furthered and solidified by the controller yelling a constant battery of bewildering questions and accusations, sometimes cruel, and of course playing the extreme opposites by appearing compassionate later to further confuse. These tactics are all used in American funded, CIA run “boot camps” and “schools” for “troubled teens” and organizations of the like in the elite ruled countries of earth.

Rare is the man who can survive these methods alone. And this doesn’t include the rape, peeling layers of skin off at a time, water tortures and electric shock. This is only the tip of the iceberg for techniques used through history. Most who undergo the higher level programmings, which include these things do not survive. Under such conditions, hundreds and hundreds of Templar Knights confessed to appalling crimes when interrogated under some of these methods.

Also in the middle ages, 1252 AD, the the papacy approves the use of torture for religious disobedience. Yes. Religion is one of the favorite tools of the elite. All you have to do to see them is follow the Roman Church.

Now before the middle ages, the elite were more centralized in the area of Asia, including Russia. These practices can be found there, going back in China to the Qin Dynasty in the first century and before. Centuries before, the elite were in the middle east as high priests (controllers) to the pharaohs (the pawn of the elite) of Egypt and so on. This is why the Egyptian book of the Dead is the oldest “known” document on mind control techniques. The same elites who rule us today, wrote it then, when they controlled Egypt. And before, the Kaballah, their Luciferian magickal documents were typically passed down only through memory. Never written. After the elite had been kicked out of the middle east, the travelled over to asia and so one. Then the elite decided to come out of the Germanic areas and create their Frankish Empire. From there we see it spread until the creation of the Roman Catholic Church when the Knights were brought about to spread indoctrination and mind control everywhere. They have been banished from every country through history because of what they do. However, in the last couple hundred years we have either become to lazy, or …too careless.

In the 1400s we see Queen Isabella of Spain used torture frequently on those questioning the government or the religion. Questioning, thinking, using your mind to freely form your own thoughts, is called heresy. Hundreds of millions have been slaughtered by the church and the throne, in the name of heresy. Those who could not conform or follow the brain washing and mind kontrol of the elite.

The middle ages was a very religiously ruled time. If you were not in the church then you were a target for reprogramming (jail, the block, the rack, exile, forced to join monastery or some private and secret group. During these times, secret groups were everywhere. It was easy to shut out the world and live in solitude, even with a large group. -No internet- These places, orphanages and the like were used then, just as they are used now. Hospitals administered drugs and torture on patients instead of help. Nothing has changed.

Now on a more elite level of mind control programming in history, we can see every poster child of a religion, movie, music group, most politicians and top athletes, have today all been programmed for their roles. From Billy Graham to Donald Trump to Frank Sinatra and the Three Stooges. Mind Kontrol.mk

Joseph Smith Jr. was a Satanic Ritual Abuse victim who spoke out privately about the Illuminati families. The Mormons, as well as the Jehovah’s Witnesses and others, were created to suit the family’s mind control needs according to the time, implementing the use of LSD and other “methods” as needed. In 1844 Joseph Smith and Joseph Smith Jr. were murdered. You can see this exact script in every religion. Scientology-Jehovah’s Witness-Islam-all of them.

During the end of WWII, Hitler’s german-born cousin George H. Scherff Sr. and his son Georfe Scherff Jr. (father of daddy-bush) were thrust onto the Samuel Bush family tree with the name Prescott Sheldon Bush and claimed to be the youngest son of Samuel Prescott Bush and Flora Sheldon. That would be the origin of the Bush and Prescott names. Scherff and his friend Mengele, also smuggled to safety in the USA, were part of CIA mind control experiments such as MK-ULTRA. George Scherff Jr’s nickname was curious George. Everything Hitler-I mean Disney ever put in his movies, and the story-lines themselves are all satanic, mind control programming.

Joseph Mengele, Dr. Green, was one of the 760 German experts who was granted US citizenship after being brought into the US after World War II under Project Paperclip. Dr. Green used to pull daisy petals while saying the words “I love you, I love you not.” If the last petal was “I love you not.” the child would be put to death. Surviving children were left traumatized. The “I love you, I love you not.” pulls the child two ways with this message. It is an absolute, taking all control over the other. We see children playing this “game” today…at least 80 million dollars was given a Dr. Green to run the CIA mind-control program.

In the elite families themselves the ritual trauma and mind control is extreme, to say the least. This is one reason many of the children die young and if not, have serious mental problems as they age.

In the late 40’s and 50’s, a famous model named Candy Jones revealed a systematic program to create and manipulate alter personalities as the foundation for programmed couriers resistant to torture, where the primary personality would not even be aware of the secret information being carried. The information could be summoned forth via a post-hypnotic command or response to a programmed cue. During this time the Soviet, Chinese, and North Korean perfected mind control techniques, which the CIA then stole and use. Canada and Britain’s mind-control programs have been functioning since pre-World War I. (Keep in mind this is “officially”…it has all been going on since the beginning of us all.)

In the 70’s the Synanon became quite popular along with many other cult like organizations started in the “hippie era”. “Rehabs” and “behavioral modification centers”, “therapeutic communities”and “mental health facilities” became popular, around that time. Before Synanon was made, Robert L. DuPont, Jr. administered funds for an experimental, juvenile drug rehabilitation program in Fort Lauderdale, Florida called The Seed. Which was reported by the US Senate as using the methods of communist brainwashing. The organizations thrive and never ever die because of situations exactly like this one. The organization was found out to be corrupt, so the leaders simply moved to a different state, renamed The Seed- Straight, Inc (which has been responsible for over 100,000 child deaths-that have been reported in the past years). The name has changed and the Synanon Church, which has claimed to be many things, is just another mind control program station. The same trauma. Different names, different locations. This is how it always is. DuPont was a paid consultant for Straight (you will find the elite directly connected to everything they control).

We won’t go into the whole history of the CIAs experiments but, as you now see, the mind control programs were nothing new. By the late 80s, the Technical Services Division ran many programs. MK-Ultra program was renamed to the Stargate-Program (because whistle blowers who leaked the evidences of this specific program and Monarch before it) and included the sub-programs Chatter, Often, Derbyhat, 3rd Chance, Chikwit, MK-Delta, QKBOIL, QKDEMON and QKDROOP, QK Active, QK Hilltop. MKUltra consists of 149 different programs as well as a multitude of sub-programs. We know at least 80 institutions and 185 private researchers participated.

More on all of this in the links below.

In the 1990’s, Linda McDonald came forward as a victim of Monarch Mind Control programming by Dr. Ewen Cameron (Dr. White) at Allan Memorial Hospital. Linda McDonald at the age of 58 and living in Vancouver, BC was able to prove that Cameron did programming using drugs, electroshock, psychic driving,depatterning, etc, which all continue to this day. CIA had funded Cameron. The US Federal government gave McDonald, via the Canadian government, a $100,000 settlement, if she was silent. This is how it is kept hidden. It leaves no noticable physical evidence. The perfect murder.

“By my faith if this be insanity, then for the love of God permit me to remain insane.” -Robert Hunter

William C. Van Duyn is influential in the Bilderberger and CFR groups, to name a few. He sent his opening speech for the 62nd Bilderberger meeting 2015. Here is an excerpt:
“Human Mind Control. Human Minds affect the planet. This is how it is measured…It is the duty of the Illuminati to control every movement within any government, to provide security to its population, therefore we create the rules, we decide about nations policy.”

Michael Breakspear is currently doing experiments on the cortical-spinal system. He experiments with the dynamical behavior of the human motor control system from the outside. Mind Control.
He works with Michael Aburn, Tjeerd Boonstra and Saeid Mehrkanoon at the Systems Neuroscience Group at Queensland Institute of Medical Research in Royal Brisbane Hospital in Herston.

Mind Control is everywhere. Marijuana has been proven to make brainwashing and mind control techniques ineffective.

Part 6: History of Mind Control

Religious organizations support abuse because they were created by the Satanic elite. The big leaders are under the elite’s control and the masses are blinded and brain washed. #NoReligion

    PUT BETTING MODELS: While using the very same 12 horses race to give an example. If you are using your betting transaction like Betfair of betdaq and stick to lie down betting product to place bet only 1 mount to lose often the kind, you could pile the odds noticeably on your favor, by simply systematically build betting there are mount from the fly. You now suitable in the staying 11 race horses running In your case, along with only one horse (the 1 you’ve build bet to lose) functioning AGAINST one. Therefore , if the rules stated left over 11 sinon embark on to really win the run you definitely win your lay down guess (this is known as typically the ‘lay bet system’).
