I. Webmaster’s Introduction: According to author, Dr. Michelle Chossudovsky (“The Globalization of Poverty”), Emeritus Professor of Economics at the University of Ottawa, Canada and founder of globalresearch.ca, the “corona hoax” is a “Crown operation.” Indeed, corona means crown. Generally speaking (from Wikipedia): “the concept of the Crown took form under the feudal system.” The following relevant meanings of the word “crown” may help identify the powers behind the “Corona” hoax:
1) “The Crown” refers to the British royal family. The monarch is the living embodiment of the Crown.” (wikipedia)
2) “Crown” refers to the state in all its aspects within the jurisprudence of the Commonwealth realms and their subdivisions (such as Crown (British) dependencies, overseas territories, provinces, or states). “The Commonwealth” or “The Commonwealth of Nations,” is a political association of 54 member states, almost all of which are former territories or colonies of the British Empire.
3) A “crown corporation” is any corporation that is established and regulated by a country’s state or government. (Benito Mussolini: “Fascism is the merger of state and corporate power.”)
4) “Crown” “can also refer to the rule of law. However, in common parlance, ‘The Crown’ refers to the functions of government and the civil service.”
5) “Crown” also refers to the “Kether” or “Keter,” or highest point in the Jewish Cabalistic Sephiroth “Tree of Life.” The Kether/Crown denotes the highest of the many Jewish gods, Ein Soph. Satan is present throughout the Sephiroth and is also worshipped by Jews. This could be relevant because the City of London, the financial center of world commerce, has for centuries been run by the Rothschild family and Rothschild is considered “king of the Jews.”

II. Jay Dyer on MKNAOMI biowarfare experiments and the manufactured Covid Crisis
Jay Dyer’s segment begins at 13:50 and runs to the end of this broadcast.
Webmaster’s Brief Summary/Intro:
1) Biological warfare programs under CIA’s MKULTRA, MKDELTA, MKSEARCH, and MKNAOMI programs are here connected to the CFR, UNESCO, the UN, the Nazi Paperclip scientists, and the creation of Manchurian Candidates. Apparently, it’s all about using this “death research” to degrade culture and depopulate the planet. I provide approximate transcriptions of some of the headlines from the two interview texts.
2) Led by these organizations, our nation and society itself has been weaponized against the domestic population… so that it self-destructs. Now that we can identify the primary perpetrators of these extraordinary “crimes against humanity,” perhaps it is past time to prosecute them as criminals and traitors.
3) (Wild) Bill Donovan of the OSS (WWII precursor to the CIA) said he wanted to recruit psychopaths, loonies, and deviants that could then be trained and used to entrap, compromise, and destabilize anyone, anywhere, anytime. They developed these entrapment operations down to a science. This sounds a lot like the Epstein-Maxwell operation. It sounds just like the gangstalking-electronic harassment program that has been ongoing secretly since the 1950’s. Dyer suggests that government-selected, groomed, and/or programmed pscyhos and deviants may now actually run the entire system!
4) Dyer makes the important connections between MKNAOMI research into biowarfare in Australia and Papua New Guinea and the weaponization of prion/Mad Cow/Kuru disease and suggests that this research may have direct connection to the manufactured “Covid crisis.”
5) Finally, Dyer connects the biowarfare research of the MKSEARCH, MKDELTA and MKNAOMI projects with AI and transhumanism, the basis of the technocratic feudalism system now being implemented worldwide under cover of the Covid hoax.
Loose translation of Jay Dyer video by Webmaster:
“When we look at this manufactured (Covid) crisis we see how this relates to MKULTRA. Once we understand how the elite have used wartime intelligence and wartime operations on the people then we can decode what’s going on in this manufactured global operation.
The CIA’s MKULTRA mind control program was a series of at least 149 subprojects carried out at top universities and institutions across the globe that were designed to conquer the human mind. We don’t even know all the stuff they did. About half of the original documents were destroyed, so we are only looking at the programs for which some records still exists.
Some of this research very much pertains to the Covid crisis. And these MKULTRA projects play out directly to AI and transhumanism. This research also transitions into a biowarfare project. (Head of OSS, Office of Strategic Services) Bill Donovan said we need to figure out how to map the mind. And in the Phoenix Program in Vietnam (1967-72), they literally enlisted psychopaths to terrorize and kill the (domestic Viet Cong) enemy. A lot of people in those same programs came home under MKSEARCH and MKNAOMI in order to terrorize and destabilize the domestic population here which are actually psychological warfare operations.
(Webmaster comment: These operations presumably include the serial killings of the 1980’s as well as the CIA’s MHCHAOS and FBI COINTELPRO operations and HISTORICAL AND ONGOING GANGSTALKING operations)
Charles Manson himself was a product of these mind control experiments.
Bill Donovan said we need to find loonies, psychos, and freaks who actually want to spy on, intimidate, and do voyeurism on the public and then recruit them to do our surveillance work (webmaster comment: a prototype of the gangstalking structure). One of the first of these specific programs to do this was actually run by AT&T in cooperation with APA, the American Psychology Association, and UC Berkeley psychology professors, Dr. Murray. CIA spychiatrist, Dr. John Gittinger, was involved in helping to identify and recruit these psychos and loonies with his Personality Assessment System (PAS).
So the very earliest OSS and CIA mind control research programs and labs were set up in cooperation with Fortune 100 corporations, top public state universities, and top level doctors, scientists, and professors.
The original OSS plan was to map the mind, to understand the human mental domain, and then to control it. So this led to all kinds of research into the effects of various drugs, psychedelic drugs, and “entheogens.” Gordon Wassen, JP Morgan’s man, found magic mushrooms in South America that could be synthesized into various hallucinogens and other LSD type drugs. These drugs were then tested on the public in counterculture projects in the 1960s through their CIA operatives such as Dr. Timothy Leary and Terrence McKenna and others.
But we need to understand that ALL of this stuff, not just the transhumanism, cultural degradation, and mind control… is also intended to toxify the culture so that you don’t reproduce. That’s the whole game plan here. If you don’t reproduce, the elite will then take that technology and become divine. Or so they think. They want to “download into the monolith.” That’s what 2001 is about. The tech elite, the transhumanists, have a long term game plan.
Watch “2010,” the follow-up movie to “2001,” also based on Arthur C. Clark’s books (and he was hanging out with creepers like Aleister Crowley). The meaning and message of “2010” is that the Cold War was a dialectic to spur on the next phase of humanity into the Fourth Industrial Revolution, which is the next type of civilization. (This is) literally “Star Child”-level stuff. They want to be “Star Child.” They literally want to be gigantic creepy, floating babies in space nuking planets. That’s the plan.
The MKULTRA projects in Australia, including anthropologist Margaret Mead’s studies of the natives in Papua New Guinea, involved the study of cannibalism….
So these things: hypnotism, mind control, disassociation, de-personalization (what are we seeing in some of these covid shots?), prions… Guess where that comes from? Biowarfare research under MKULTRA…
So they didn’t want to just figure out how split and map the mind. Back in the 1940’s, hypnotist psychology professor, Dr. George Estabrooks (Colgate University), had the ability to hypnotize susceptible people to become hypnotic couriers. That’s where we get the pop imagery of the programmed Manchurian Candidate assassins.
Check out the movie, “La Femme Nakita,” the Luc Besson movie (1990). Here we see a government program that brings in psychopaths. In the movie, they take a woman to an underground base and spend four years training her. She learns to become a sex operative (honey trap). Then they send her out under their total control to do whatever the deep state, the government, the secret service, wants.
(Webmaster Comment: Might this be what the CIA-affiliated Finders Child Sexual and Satanic Ritual Abuse Cult is all about?…(See a recent interview between journalists Elizabeth Vos and Whitney Webb here: The Finders, The CIA, and Montauk (Whitney Webb, Elizabeth Vos Interview, June, 2021)).
Does the CIA-affiliated “Finders Cult” procuring (kidnapping/purchasing) very young children (0 to 6) and then subject them to trauma-based mind control programming/SRA (Satanic Ritual Abuse) and convert them into DID (dissociative identity disorder) “Manchurian Candidates”/bio-robots so that they can be used to compromise, intimidate, spy on, and/or destroy anyone anywhere anytime? I suggest that that is exactly the function of the CIA-affiliated Finders Cult and that these illegal, covert, highly organized and criminal activities have been ongoing since at least the 1940s and 50s.)
Remember all of this research from these MKULTRA projects and the war-time psychological operations is actually about using all this research and data upon the whole society.
Whatever is true of the individual, the microcosm, can be extrapolated to the entire society, the macrocosm. These ideas go back to Plato, who believed that the whole society was a like a large person. All research can be weaponized and become an attack on the entire population. For example, the allegory of the cave. Aldous Huxley, you can train the people to love their servitude, their chains.
The one who has left the cave to see reality, Socrates, Jesus, and others… that image of the one who comes to tell you the truth. The message is a lot of people don’t want this message of truth. They are addicted to their passions. Gittinger’s PAS was all about mapping human desires and controlling people through their desires.
An example is “learned helplessness,” which derives from the idea of weaponizing your base desires, as identified by CIA spychiatrist, Abraham Maslow. The technocratic model has adopted all these techniques that work. Communism, socialism, fascism, Platonism, democracy, Sovietism, western degeneracy, anything that works. They just take what works and incorporate that into the technocratic system. It all comes out of this OSS-CIA-mind control-personality assessment control system.
The manipulation of fear in society through (Maslow’s) “hierarchy of needs” to create “learned helplessness” to keep you in a perpetual state of fear.
MKULTRA projects also spawned the idea of “positive thinking,” positive “Buddhism.” You find all kinds of connections.
Other key figures in the MKULTRA research in Australia that operated over many decades included Leonard Huxley, who spread the satanic gospel to other countries like Australia. Many other famous scientist, medical, anthropological and psychiatric researchers who were there too… including Dr. Ronald Taft, Dr. Robert Goodnough, Dr. Sidney Gottlieb (who ran MKULTRA for the CIA), Robert Heath, Gregory Bateson, Margaret Mead, Dr. Kurt Lewin of Tavistock Institute, Dr. Anthony Kidman, Dr. Hans Eysenck, Dr. Harvey Bailey and many others.
They worked through different fronts such as the Human Ecology Fund and the Air Force Biowarfare research, they found a way to continue eugenics research.
They studied tribes down there, including the Aboriginees in Australia and the Fore tribe in Papua New Guinea. They discovered that the cannibals in the Fore tribe in Papau New Guinea got Kuru disease, aka Mad Cow disease and prion disease, from eating other people.
These projects were connected to the Jason Group, consisting of elite technocrats, scientists, mathematicians, and engineers associated with Rand Corporation, etc. They found that eating people kind of makes you go crazy, you turn into a kind of zombie, you do weird things, you turn into a shaking neurological mess.
This was under the auspices of eugenics research, but we know that the word eugenics became unpopular so they re-branded it using other project names. But bottom line, the American Eugenics Society wanted to figure out how to weaponize Kuru-Mad Cow-prion disease. And who were the people involved in this? People on the Gates Foundation. Like Sir Gustaf Nos…. Do you see what’s going on here?
This is a biowarfare thing that they figured out through MKULTRA research. Yes, they want to split and map the mind and create dissociation in the masses, but they are also interested in genetic destruction, genetic research to destroy genomes. They recruited the best and brightest of the scientific elites through Fulbright Scholarships, headed up by people in the CFR, with people like Elijah Root… These people are into dysgenics, the weaponizing of genetics to destroy genomes, to destabilize and ultimately to reduce populations to achieve ZPG- or Zero Population Growth.
So the mutations and neurological effects of the biowarfare programs under MKULTRA morphed into MKDELTA, MKSEARCH and biowarfare research. That way it was no longer seen as taboo. It was no longer seen as Nazi Paperclip stuff. But guess how many Nazi Paperclip scientists ended up in Australia doing this kind of research? 127.
(Webmaster comment: Including, presumably, mind programmer and MKULTRA psychologist, Dr. Anthony Kidman, actress Nicole Kidman’s father.)
Meanwhile, the Soviets were doing similar things with their “psy-spies” studying the occult and mind control research and they had their Nazi scientists too.. As did the British. As did the U.S. So don’t be fooled by the dialectics of the war time period.
Because the overarching plan was the erecting of a global technocracy and the setting up of institutions like United Nations, UNESCO, connected to people like the Huxley’s connected to British intelligence, all working with people like Dr. Hans Eysenck, the famous geneticist. Eysenck was working on MKULTRA subproject 111 that dealt with multiple personality (DID) research. So they’ve been doing this for a long time.
These people want most of the planet dead. They only care about your health to the extent that you die. One of the MKULTRA doctors, Dr. Harry Bailey, is a serial killer. , It’s always 10 times crazier than you think.
Dr. Harry Bailey runs a big mental institute testing mind control projects and death research and he ends up by killing most of the people in the hospital, the mental institute. He’s classed as one of the famous serial killers. These people are psychos. Remember what Bill Donovan said: We want to recruit psychos. And with Dr. John Gittinger’s Personality Assessment System (PAS), they had it down to a science how to entrap anybody. They had a stable of whores ready to go to work. To do whatever they were told. And anyone could be compromised.
So they learned how to recruit psychopaths and deviants to be the tools of this system of total control. That’s who is running this system now. (Holding up a stack of papers….. This is all proven….) This is not debatable. This is all academic research here.”
III. MK ULTRA, TAVISTOCK & PSYCHOLOGICAL WARFARE – JAY DYER / COURTENAY TURNER PART 2 (July 28, 2021)
In this episode, Jay Dyer returns to The Courtenay Turner Podcast, for a discussion on the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations. Though little known by the masses it has been referred to by some as the mother of all think tanks for its tremendous influence, shaping the opinions of the masses, through the excogitation of and promulgation of social engineering. This conversation covers some of the integral players involved and the specific tactics of psychological warfare utilized in the Tavistock’s mastery of long range penetration and inner directional conditioning that has laid the groundwork for cultural bouleversement.
“The OSS (Office of Strategic Services, precursor to the CIA) was created by the Rockefeller Foundation and British intelligence and is really the private intelligence group of the Rockefeller Foundation and the globalists. It was created to bring America back under the sway of the British Empire.” …. “The idea was always to play a bigger game than the dialectical conflict of the Cold War. At a higher level, the longer game being played is to integrate all the countries into a technocratic order.”
…”Even in the 1960’s, the CFR was promoting “the Third Way” as the blending of the East and the West into a new global order. So this has been the plan for a long, long time.”
….. “Some people theorize that the Vietnam War itself was a psyop on the American mind.. to destroy the American youth. It was a US war on the youth of the US via drugs and drug warfare, sometimes called the Guam Doctrine.
And (all the while) all this was being studied by DARPA, Rand, the CIA.”
… after the Church Committee investigations into CIA crimes in the middle 1970s, MKULTRA moved to different places and transitioned to MKSEARCH, MKDELTA, MKNAOMI under the guise of biological warfare. A lot of this research at Fort Detrick, Maryland was actually being carried out in Australia and Papua New Guinea. They were studying Kuru disease, which is prion disease, which is Mad Cow disease. You might see how that could be relevant today.
So there is a direct connection between an MKNAOMI project run out of Fort Detrick and carried out in Australia and Papua New Guinea and what’s happening today (with the “Covid crisis”).
Both John Marks’ and Walter Bowart’s books (“In Search of the Manchurian Candidate” and “Operation Mind Control”, respectively, written in the late 70s) end with the observation that MKULTRA really just transitioned into studies about cybernetics. They took all the brain implant electrodes in the brain, frequency ELF, VLF-testing and transitioned that over into biowarfare projects, and made it biometrics, biomechanics, transhumanism.
So in the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s MKULTRA is literally directly transitioning into transhumanism via DARPA, via cybernetics. So a bunch of the people who were Rockefeller-funded MKULTRA people also started doing these biofeedback studies, which became cybernetics, at MIT. Literally some of the same people were involved. This is discussed in the documentary, “Minds of Men.”
The MIT Group Dynamics, Group Networks laboratory, this is where we get Norbert Weiner and cybernetics. Also, the math people at Rand were associated with MIT as well as DARPA and Tavistock. All these groups are working for the same octopus.
The main thing is to understand that culture is created. Most of it is steered toward a desired end by the power elite. Edward Bernays, in his book “Propaganda,” says just that in the very first page. He basically says: “You are all captive to a secret elite who controls your desires and your thoughts. They use psychological warfare, information warfare, advertising… All these different groups, think tanks, study groups, research groups are just steering groups and research groups for the global elite to create the global government. It’s that simple.”
… “The idea of alienated youth was planned by Tavistock.”
… “GCHQ has been doing years of research on memes, as part of social engineering.”
…. “Gregory Bateson has connections to Laurel Canyon.”
… “One of the fake gatekepers of the new left is Noam Chomsky.”
IV. Webmaster Conclusion: Through the treason of the CIA and Rockefeller Foundation, in particular, the US finds itself once again in a position of intolerable bondage to the British Crown. The words of Thomas Jefferson’s Declaration of Independence now ring as true again today as they did on July 4, 1776.
“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world”…..
V. Related and Supporting Information
* Project MKNAOMI: (Wikipedia): MKNAOMI was the code name for a joint Department of Defense/CIA research program lasting from the 1950s through the 1970s. Unclassified information about the MKNAOMI program and the related Special Operations Division is scarce. It is generally reported to be a successor to the MKULTRA project focusing on biological projects including biological warfare agents—specifically, to store materials that could either incapacitate or kill a test subject and to develop devices for the diffusion of such materials.
During its first twenty years, the CIA engaged in projects designed to increase U.S. biological and chemical warfare capabilities. Project MKNAOMI was initiated to provide the CIA with a covert support base to meet its top-secret operational requirements. The goal was to have a robust arsenal of lethal and incapacitating materials within the CIA’s Technical Services Division (TSD). This would enable the TSD to serve as a center for supplying biological and chemical materials.
Surveillance, testing, upgrading and the evaluation of special materials and items were provided by MKNAOMI to ensure that no defects or unwanted contingencies emerged during operational conditions. The U.S. Army’s Special Operations Command (SOC) was assigned to assist the CIA with development, testing and maintenance procedures for the biological agents and delivery systems (1952). Both the CIA and SOC modified guns to fire special darts coated with biological agents and poisonous pills. The darts could incapacitate guard dogs, allowing agents to infiltrate the area that the dogs were guarding, and would then be used to awaken the dogs upon exiting the facility. In addition, the SOC was designated to research the potential to use biological agents against other animals and crops.
A 1967 CIA memo which was uncovered by the Church Committee contained evidence of at least three covert techniques for attacking and poisoning crops that had been tested under field conditions. On November 25, 1969, President Richard Nixon banned any military use of biological weapons and Project MKNAOMI was dissolved. On February 14, 1970, a presidential order outlawed all stockpiles of bacteriological weapons and nonliving toxins. However, despite the presidential order, a CIA scientist was able to acquire an estimated 11 grams of deadly shellfish toxin from SOC personnel at Fort Detrick. The toxin was stored in a CIA laboratory where it remained undetected for over five years.

** Kuru Disease (from National Institutes of Neurological Diseases and Stroke; Kuru Information Page:
Kuru is a rare and fatal brain disorder that occurred at epidemic levels during the 1950s-60s among the Fore people in the highlands of New Guinea. The disease was the result of the practice of ritualistic cannibalism among the Fore, in which relatives prepared and consumed the tissues (including brain) of deceased family members. Brain tissue from individuals with kuru was highly infectious, and the disease was transmitted either through eating or by contact with open sores or wounds. Government discouragement of the practice of cannibalism led to a continuing decline in the disease, which has now mostly disappeared.
Kuru belongs to a class of infectious diseases called transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs), also known as prion diseases. The hallmark of a TSE disease is misshapen protein molecules that clump together and accumulate in brain tissue. Scientists believe that misshapen prion proteins have the ability to change their shape and cause other proteins of the same type to also change shape. Other TSEs include Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease and fatal familial insomnia in humans, bovine spongiform encephalopathy in cattle (also known as mad cow disease), scrapie in sheep and goats, and chronic wasting disease in deer and elk.
*** Prion Disease: (Centers For Disease Control And Prevention):
Prion diseases or transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs) are a family of rare progressive neurodegenerative disorders that affect both humans and animals. They are distinguished by long incubation periods, characteristic spongiform changes associated with neuronal loss, and a failure to induce inflammatory response.
The causative agents of TSEs are believed to be prions. The term “prions” refers to abnormal, pathogenic agents that are transmissible and are able to induce abnormal folding of specific normal cellular proteins called prion proteins that are found most abundantly in the brain. The functions of these normal prion proteins are still not completely understood. The abnormal folding of the prion proteins leads to brain damage and the characteristic signs and symptoms of the disease. Prion diseases are usually rapidly progressive and always fatal.

“…MacLeod also writes, “During the same period, studies, studies of dissemination— ‘delivery systems’ — of biological weapons are known to have formed part of the research portfolio of both the CIA and the Chemical Corps…An article in Scientific Research by William E. Small “alleged that the Smithsonian Institution [a partner in the Army’s bird projects] was deeply committed to studies in Brazil and the Pacific dealing with the mechanisms by which rare viruses and blood parasites are transmitted from birds, mammals and insects to man”
Why is it that the U.S. state apparatus is standing in the way of any serious medical investigation into Mogellons disease? For the simple reason that it would inexorably lead to the covert biological war programmes of the 1950’s. Hank Albarelli lifts the veil on a period – which may not necessarily be over – when the military-industrial complex proclaimed to safeguard the “free world” while testing new experiments on the civilian population that it purported to protect; a period when members of the medical profession – including the CDC – developed diseases that they should have been preventing but which they used instead to contaminate the very people they were supposed to protect.

Part 1: Morgellons Victims Across the US and Europe

“A massive malignant agenda at play…” Symptoms of Morgellons disease.
Dr. Edward Spencer, 75- years old, is one of the few physicians in the United States that takes Morgellons disease very seriously. Spencer is a Stanford University and Yale University Medical School educated neurologist, who worked for nearly 40 years at Petaluma Valley Hospital in Northern California.
One day several years ago, Dr. Spencer was summoned to meet with the hospital’s Physicians Wellness Committee. Spencer had no idea what the purpose of the meeting was, but thought perhaps they wanted to discuss his recently expressed concerns about swine flu and vaccines in Eastern Europe. Dr. Spencer had been alarmed to learn that the flu vaccine sent to Eastern Europe was reportedly contaminated with lethal bird flu virus. Additionally, Spencer had been an outspoken advocate for Morgellons patients.
Spencer had earlier stated, “[The] CDC and medical establishment have been totally negligent in studying this system of disorders known as Morgellons, and have provided no treatment, support, or comfort at all to patients afflicted.” He further stated, “Morgellons is not a problem of ‘delusions of parasitosis’; it is an unexplained illness which is characterized by skin manifestations including non-healing lesions, itching, and the appearance of fibers. There appears to be a strong association with Lyme disease.”
Once in the meeting, Spencer recalls, “I naively thought that maybe they actually wanted to discuss some of my findings about swine flu”, but was instead shocked to hear that the committee was greatly concerned about his positions on swine flu and Morgellons, and that they wanted him “to agree to undergo psychiatric evaluation because they felt me to be a possible danger to my patients.” Said Spencer, who had been associated with the hospital for nearly 40-years, “I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. I was in a state of near shock, sitting there with all my files on swine flu thinking they were actually interested in my findings.”
Following a second meeting with the committee, Dr. Spencer says he realized, “I was up against a star chamber and kangaroo court which had already decided to get rid of me.” He explains, “I had never challenged the system before, but I had come to the point where I felt I had to do it. Too much was going on that really bothered me. I had come to realize that the pharmaceutical companies were basically a conspiracy against common people; that truth about a lot of things had become submerged big time; that medicine today was 100 years behind the times and had been taken over by military medicine. There seemed to be a massive malignant agenda at play.”
After resigning his position at the hospital, Spencer testified about Morgellons disease before the mayor and city council of Berkeley, California. He stated in part: “There now exists strong data indicating that this disorder [Morgellons] is associated with nanotechnology, specifically nano machines in the form of nanofibers.”[see below] About 30-days later, Dr. Spencer recounts that “I made plans to attend an infectious disease conference in Malaysia”, but before he left he was involved in a strange automobile accident. His car was struck head on by another vehicle traveling completely on his side of the road. Hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries, Spencer oddly entered “a disassociated state for about 4 hours.” He states that no reason or diagnosis for this was ever established. He recalls, “I was on my cell phone when it started, and phone records revealed that I called a woman in Iowa who tracks Morgellons patients, and was connected for seven minutes. I have no memory of this.”
In an interview with these authors, Dr. Spencer said, “I regard Morgellons disorder as a hybrid bio-nano-machine terror weapon. Establishment medicine and the government, which is now a fraudulent foreign owned corporation, go to great lengths to protect Morgellons from investigation of any sort. Morgellons is not one thing but is actually a system of multiple attack vectors that damage the body in numerous ways and carry various DNA and RNA strands. It is made in laboratories by talented men and women who have lost their souls and adhere to satanic principles.”
Interview with Dr. Edward Spencer Part 1
Parts 2, 3 and 4.
In 1986, Valerie Prazen was living in a middle-class, suburban subdivision in Wellington, Utah. She had lived there for nearly five years, and in 1985 the area’s sewage treatment plant began having capacity issues revolving around the number of digesters required. Consulting scientists employed by the plant recommended that a second digester be added, but, according to Prazen, “Short cuts were taken and instead of installing a second digester, the plant, which had been privatized from municipal ownership, opted for two huge open air sludge pits.”
Prazen says, “The pits stunk to high heaven, and worse yet folks became very ill, many with respiratory problems, lethargy and a rash that was flowing around peoples’ bodies systematically.”
Recounts Prazen, “People were calling the TV news station, and eventually a number of town meetings were called about the problem, but just before this there was a strange death of a local man. He lived the exact distance from the plant as me on the other side, about a quarter mile away. His death provoked a large number of people to wonder if it was somehow connected to the plant’s activities, including workers at the plant who were very concerned, a concern that shot through the roof after the plant began to glow fluorescent red, something nobody had ever previously witnessed.”
Valerie explained that she soon discovered that the man had died shortly after returning home from having been “on maneuvers upstate with the National Guard, [and his death] coincided with the plant turning fluorescent red.” At a meeting with townspeople called by the Army, Prazen recounted that a high-ranking Army officer said, “The man died from Hantavirus which he allegedly came into contact with while on maneuvers.” She points out those maneuvers took place in and around the Dugway Proving Grounds, a well known military site for the testing of biological weapons. [Hantavirus is a deadly disease spread by rodents that is similar to the flu. Hantavirus is a serious infection, and even with aggressive treatment, more than half of the cases are fatal.]
“Everyone that lived near the sewage plant got sick,” recalls Valerie, “but only I had lesions. It didn’t seem to make sense.” Eventually, Valerie, with the help of friends and family and through her own research, realized that she had Morgellons disease. This occurred after she had moved away from Utah to a remote mountainous area in Colorado, where she and her husband set up a gift shop and art gallery.
Valerie has firm opinions about Morgellons disease. She says, “I believe Morgellons is a technology that was programmed to go into the body and meets with a reversal of organs—chaos ensues. This is just part of the story; it is a whole system that will work together unless it is stopped… I’ve often compared this situation with Morgellons to the movie, Altered States, with John Hurt. He’s running around looking crazy and everyone thinks he should be committed. Then they see it and they understand, and they look crazier than he ever did.”
Jan Smith’s Story
Jan Smith is highly regarded among Morgellons sufferers. She has appeared on the Jeff Rense radio show numerous times, and she and Rense are widely recognized as unflinching forces who have championed Morgellons victims long and hard, and well before anyone else. The Rense.com website is a virtual treasure trove of Morgellons resources and studies. Nobody can seriously look into the disease without going through the sites’ voluminous files.’Goldenhead’: a Nano Robotic Sensor with holographic features (as generated from blue fiber which was harvested from Jan Smith’s body).

Says Jeff Rense, “Morgellons is a communicable invasion or syndrome that afflicts the entire human body (it is not merely a ‘skin disease’) in the form of self-assembling, self-replicating, visible colored fibers, wires-like items, tiny black specks and other formations some containing what seem to be sensors or ‘antennae.’ Other small objects are ‘fluorescent’ or metallic in color…. It is also reported by many Morgellons victims that the fibers and other Morgellons items exhibit a kind of collective intelligence within the bodies they have parasitized.”
Jan Smith’s first recollection of “having something wrong with me” was about 13 years ago when she thought “that a black fly bit me on my left arm just below my elbow.” The spot where the bite occurred has never fully healed, says Smith, “and each time I thought I was rid of it a new lesion sprang up right beside it and after 6 months I had a line of 4 scars from one active lesion running down my arm.”
Smith recounts, “I did not feel unwell during the time following the bite but it bothered me that things were escalating on my arm in spite of diligent efforts with Bacitracin and bandages to get rid of it.” Smith went to her doctor of 20 years and showed him her arm. She says, “His immediate reaction was to tell me that I had been picking at my arm and causing this running line of scars and sores due to the bad habit. I was dumbfounded and hurt. After 20 years of seeing him why would he think I had suddenly turned into a scab picking person. He didn’t believe me when I told him that was not the case.” Smith asked for a referral to a dermatologist, but before making that visit she began to notice that “the lesion on my arm had long fibers coming out of it and at first I thought it might be blanket fuzz or lint from clothing.”
Recalls Smith, “I kept a Band-Aid on the area and it puzzled me how the fuzz was not only under the pad but also had fibers stuck beneath the adhesive strip. Something didn’t make sense. There was also a strange clear fluid that oozed from the lesion that formed a clear scale over the lesion that looked like dried airplane glue. There was no blood and no normal scab. I began to collect fibers from the sore and they were strange red, blue, and colorless fibers. Some were even in fiber-balls of entwined strands. I had my trusty magnifying glass and I planned to vindicate myself with the dermatologist. By the time my appointment came 3 months later I had a good collection of these fibers. I was sure the dermatologist would know what I had and would vindicate my good name from the ranks of ‘pickers.’
At her visit with the skin doctor, Smith, with her fibers in hand in a Ziploc bag, says she “graduated from being a ‘self excoriater’’ to becoming a person with delusional parasitosis, as the physician wrote on my medical records.” She says:
“This put me in the ranks of schizophrenics and at that point it was all downhill. It was the first of many dermatologists, infectious disease doctors and others. With each succeeding medical person I anticipated the negative diagnosis of delusions of parasitosis before I even met them. This diagnosis brought forth the most condescending treatment and complete inability for anyone to listen to a word I had to say. Suddenly, I had gone from an intelligent person to an imbecile who should not speak. I had to start bringing my husband to the doctor’s visits to keep the abuse quotient low. This long nightmarish quest for medical help lasted for about 3 years, and at that time I had still not experienced the full breakout of copious lesions that were yet to come. Fatigue had set in and I had to quit my job at a residential school in favor of working from my home due to perpetual weakness and need for sleep. In the fourth year after the onset of the arm symptoms we moved from our home and made a lot of life changes due to decreased income since I could no longer work at all. Right after this stressful move, the disease went full throttle and I developed over 60 lesions on my arms, chest and abdomen. I was completely bedridden for months. I thought I was going to die and the medical community offered me antipsychotic drugs and skin cream for my so-called relief. I refused to take the antipsychotic drugs and the skin cream was of little to no help. I was on my own. I eventually got to a point where I was functioning but I never came back to normal. Thank God I am stubborn. I bought myself a couple of microscopes and decided to do my own research. Those medical quacks were never going to have the last word and steal my life.”
MK/NAOMI: Genesis of Morgellons? FBI investigators concluded that Fort Detrick probably was the source of the anthrax spores used in the deadly mailings to Capitol Hill after the attacks of September 11, 2001.
As some readers may be aware, MK/NAOMI was the cryptonym for an ultra-secret project instituted by the CIA for its partnership with the Special Operations Division (SOD) of the U.S. Army’s biological warfare center at Fort Detrick, Maryland. The general objectives of MK/NAOMI, as stated in contemporaneous CIA documents, were:
– To provide for a covert support base to meet clandestine operational requirements.
– To research, develop, and stockpile severely incapacitating and lethal materials for the specific use of CIA’s Technical Services Division.
– To maintain in operational readiness special and unique items for the dissemination of biological and chemical materials.
– To provide for the required surveillance, testing, upgrading, and evaluation of materials and items in order to assure absence of defects and complete predictability of results to be expected under operational conditions.
Recently obtained CIA documents reveal that in the mid-1950s, scientists at Fort Detrick’s SOD undertook intensive research and experimentation with a large number of “paralysis agents.” This phase of MK/NAOMI was referred to in-house at Fort Detrick as the “K Project” and the “K Problem.” According to CIA documents, K indicates both “knockout” and “kill”, depending upon the circumstances under which researched biological products were employed by CIA operatives in the field operations conducted under “Project Artichoke” and later programs.
According to former Fort Detrick employees and sub-contractors, including microbiologist Dr. Henry Eigelsbach and Dr. Hanley Watson, the initial and central objective of the “K Project” was to “create a substance or substances that will render an individual or animal helpless and immobile, either consciously or unconsciously, until definite control measures can be instituted.” Reads one memorandum on the program, “The instances and situations where such an advantage can be utilized are too numerous to be mentioned.”
Said the late Dr. Eigelsbach, who after leaving SOD worked for the University of Maryland, “Some of the “K Project” work was farmed out to universities, but the project’s work involving human subjects in all cases I’m aware of were conducted with [SOD] personnel present.”
Reads a 1960 CIA document, “Certain species of ticks (genus Dermacentor) have been incriminated in a clinical syndrome commonly referred to as ‘tick paralysis.’ This syndrome occurs in both man and animals. It results from a tick bite, and is characterized by ascending flaccid paralysis of the musculature. Removal of the tick is usually followed by complete and rapid spontaneous recovery. The etiology of tick paralysis remains obscure. The disease is believed to result from the inoculation of some unidentified tick-generated toxic substance, which appears to be neurotropic.” [See attached document.]
The same document continues: “As a by-product of “Project NAOMI”, a sizable amount of this neurotropic toxic substance is being isolated. The development and experimental evaluation of the substance as a sedative agent will be carried out within the scope of this ‘K’ Problem project.
Recounted Dr. Watson, in a recent interview, “[SOD] research with [ticks] continued into the early 1960s, reaching a turning point around 1962 or 1963 when focus shifted away from working with the paralyzing agents toward use of [tick substances] for possibly creating a designer disease that could render targeted groups or populations incapacitated, as opposed to immobilizing people… research was intense, but perhaps not as best regulated as need be, but a number of diseases did come off the workbench for experimentation involving primates and then eventually human subjects… I don’t recall ever hearing a name for any of these diseases, certainly not Morgellons, but the dermatological manifestations and characteristics of the current day disease certainly were commonplace with experiments with animals used, swine, guinea pigs, dogs, cats, the gamut… tests were as effective as the earlier experiments. Additionally, some of the intended neurological impacts pursued, like the brain confusion or fog, appear to be present in today’s mystery disease.” As some readers may be aware, ticks are a natural breeding and mixing ground for pathogens.
Pertaining to the earlier experiments, a 1960 CIA document on SOD research reads: “As a result of animal testing procedures, a number of centrally acting muscle relaxants have been found. Several are or have been evaluated clinically in man with varying results. Occasionally, clinical reports appear claiming that certain pharmacological agents that have minimal muscle relaxant effects in some experimental animal preparations produce dramatic relief of spasticity in man. Clinical impressions are the usual criteria of effectiveness…. There exists within the [redacted] the opportunity for clinical evaluations of some centrally acting skeletal muscle relaxants on the therapeutic relief of spasticity in man.”
Other Related MK/NAOMI Projects
Former Fort Detrick and military scientists, including Watson, note that at about the same time intensive and varied work was being performed using tick related substances, researchers at the Army’s Frederick, Maryland biological warfare complex were also conducting elaborate research and experiments using birds. Some of theses scientists, speaking anonymously, claim that the use of birds for biological warfare developments may have played a determining role in the yet-to-occur onslaught of Morgellons disease.
Says one former Detrick microbiologist, “Some of these experiments employing birds as vectors for biological agents were part and parcel with MK/NAOMI and the K Project.” Although he is “unsure of some of the specifics” of the bird project, he said, “I am certain that as many as 750,000 birds, maybe as many as one million, and about $3 million, were used in the mid 1960s by Detrick microbiologists under the direction of CIA officials.” Dr. Watson maintains that in addition to the CIA’s Technical Services Division closely working on the project, the CIA funded front organization, the Human Ecology Fund, and the Office of Naval Intelligence played strong roles in the bird projects for about 3 or 4 years in the 1960s.”
As fantastic as the claims about bird vectors seem, these authors have discovered that the CIA and Fork Detrick did indeed institute and conduct at least three bird-related MK/NAOMI projects throughout the 1960s, one codenamed Project STARBRIGHT. Some Fort Detrick researchers recall having to receive special inoculations for the project. A detailed article in the Journal of the History of Biology (Issue 34, 2001) by Roy MacLeod, University of Sydney, Australia, reveals that nobody connected with the project was “told which diseases” the inoculations were for. States MacLeod, “In fact, [project] staff were told as little as possible, and then only on a ‘need to know’ basis.”
MacLeod also writes, “During the same period, studies, studies of dissemination— ‘delivery systems’ — of biological weapons are known to have formed part of the research portfolio of both the CIA and the Chemical Corps. Among the more notorious projects were those to develop so-called ‘nondiscernible microbioinoculators – the dart gun was one example— and aerosol sprays, along with the potential use of insects (including ticks) and other organic agents.” MacLeod also underscores that on December 9, 1968, an article in Scientific Research by William E. Small “alleged that the Smithsonian Institution [a partner in the Army’s bird projects] was deeply committed to studies in Brazil and the Pacific dealing with the mechanisms by which rare viruses and blood parasites are transmitted from birds, mammals and insects to man.”
Lastly, MacLeod wrote that some experiments conducted by Fort Detrick scientists at the same time involved “a set of barges loaded with Rhesus monkeys” whereby a fine “bio-powder” (the nature of which has never been disclosed) was disseminated and monitored. Detrick scientists were jovial with the results of the so-called “laydown”— “over half the monkeys died.” Remarked one Fort Detrick scientist, William Patrick, at the time, “tactical use of similar ‘laydowns’ could devastate whole cities.”
Let us turn for a moment to another subject that has fascinated biowarfare researchers for years: prion diseases. According to the Centers for Disease Control,
“Prion diseases or transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs) are a family of rare progressive neurodegenerative disorders that affect both humans and animals. They are distinguished by long incubation periods, characteristic spongiform changes associated with neuronal loss, and a failure to induce inflammatory response. The causative agent of TSEs is believed to be a prion. A prion is an abnormal, transmissible agent that is able to induce abnormal folding of normal cellular prion proteins in the brain, leading to brain damage and the characteristics signs and symptoms of the disease.”
In layman’s terms, a transmissible agent called a prion causes certain proteins in the body to fold abnormally, causing severe neurological damage and eventual dementia and death. The exact means of transmission for these diseases remains controversial in the scientific community, with some researchers arguing that specific genetic material is necessary for transmission, some arguing that the prion protein itself is infectious, and some arguing for a link to a type of bacterial organism known as a spiroplasma; yet others argue for a viral link, or transmission by a complete viral particle known as a virion. Prion forming proteins have also been identified in many types of fungi.
Prions and Mad Cow Disease
The public at large first became familiar with prion diseases when the term “Mad Cow Disease” (properly known as Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy, or BSE) was first mentioned in the news, in relation to contamination of beef products. Prion disease infected tissue remains infectious even after being subjected to high heat, presenting a risk to humans eating infected meat, even if fully cooked. Mad Cow Disease, however, is only one of a host of such prion diseases, many of which have been studied for years by scientists with interests in biowarfare. In addition to BSE, prion diseases include Creutzfeld-Jakob disease in humans, chronic wasting disease (CWD) in deer, and Scrapie in sheep and goats, among others.D. Carleton Gajdusek in 1997.
D. Carleton Gajdusek, a top official at Fort Detrick and head of laboratories for virological and neurological research at the National Institutes of Health, was awarded a Nobel Prize in 1976 for his work on prion diseases in humans, a subject he had studied extensively since beginning work on them in 1957. Nobel Prize notwithstanding, Gajdusek’s reputation is far from untarnished. His research findings link the prion disease Kuru to human cannibalism, claiming that the mode of transmission of the disease comes from the ingestion of the brain of a person suffering from the condition. Critics, however, have called these findings into question, claiming that cannibalism among the Fore people of New Guinea was no longer being practiced when Gajdusek claims to have witnessed it personally.
According to researcher Donald Scott, in May of 1966, Gajdusek and several other researchers published their efforts to transmit a “kuru like syndrome” into chimpanzees. The report was published in the journal Nature, but more significantly, was also later mentioned in a document entitled “Progress Report #8,” (1971) of the “Special Virus Cancer Program (SVCP).” As Scott and many others have reported, the Special Virus Cancer Program, which operated from roughly 1964 though 1977, was a thinly veiled cover for the US Biowarfare program, continuing long after offensive biological weapons research was discontinued on-record by president Nixon in 1971. The program underwent several name changes during its operation, also being referred to at times as the “Special Virus Leukemia Program” (1964-69) and the “Virus Cancer Program” (1973). Alan Cantwell, cancer researcher, states:
“Also joining forces with the SVCP at the NCI [National Cancer Institute] were the military’s biological warfare researchers. On October 18, 1971, President Richard Nixon announced that the Army’s biowarfare laboratories at nearby Fort Detrick, Maryland, would be converted to cancer research. As part of Nixon’s so-called War on Cancer, the military biowarfare unit was renamed the new Frederick Cancer Research Center, and Litton Bionetics was named as the military’s prime contractor for this project.” Litton Bionetics is well known to have been a top biological weapons contractor for the U.S. Army during the late 1960s and early 1970s.
A close look at the SVCP’s documents reveal that the program’s goals were much more closely geared toward causing diseases than toward curing them. Among the many diseases studied were prion diseases, at the time thought to be caused by slow acting viruses, and considered highly desirable as bio-weapons for use against livestock.
Of particular interest is Gajdusek’s work with a disease originally found in sheep, commonly known as Scrapie. The disease was reportedly named for its most obvious symptom – intense itching and discomfort that caused the infected animal to scrape against fences and other objects until it had worn away its wool, or even its skin. A September 1972 review article published in The American Journal of Pathology (R.W. Lampert, D.C. Gajdusek, C.J. Gibbs, Jr.) reports, “experimentally, Scrapie has been transmitted to goats, mice, rats, hamsters, garbils [sic], mink, and recently to monkeys.” The article explains that transmission of the disease was accomplished by injecting or feeding brain and other tissue from an infected host to the uninfected subject.
The possible implications of this information raise some grim questions: If Scrapie and other prion diseases had been experimentally transferred across species, including the infecting of non-human primates, could humans also have been infected by these diseases, or variants thereof?
GMOs and Morgellons
Another line of inquiry, for both medical professionals as well as independent researchers, has been the question of whether a relationship exists between genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and Morgellons disease. Research published by the State University of New York at Stony Brook in 2007 indicated a possible connection between Morgellons disease and agrobacterium, a soil bacterium that possesses the natural ability to transfer parts of its genetic material to plant cells. Agrobacterium has been used extensively in agricultural genetic engineering.
The pilot study (which included genetic skin testing of only two individuals) stated: “Morgellons skin fibers appear to contain cellulose. This observation indicates possible involvement of pathogenic Agrobacterium, which is known to produce cellulose fibers at infection sites within host tissues.” In an update to the study, researcher Vitaly Citovsky, Ph.D., stated: “Our continuing screen of additional Morgellons patients has identified Agrobacterium genetic material in three additional individuals. Thus, all Morgellons patients screened to date have tested positive for the presence of Agrobacterium, whereas this microorganism has not been detected in any of the samples derived from the control, healthy individuals.”
One independent researcher, whose work appears under the name “Kammy” on a wordpress.com blog, pointed out some startling similarities between bioengineered pesticides, the creation of “artificial cilia” (moving hairs) and the appearance of Morgellons fibers.
The article specifically references a patented insecitcidal delivery system (United States Patent 4844896). The patent describes a:
“1. Microencapsulated pathogen comprising:
– (i) an insecticidal pathogen including a virus, bacterium, or fungi known to infect insects
– (ii) a polymeric encapsulating agent comprising polyacrylates, polyacrylic acids, polyacrylamides or mixtures thereof;
– (iii) a sunscreening agent comprising methyl orange, malachite green or its hydrochloride, methyl green, brilliant green, an FDC green, coomasie brilliant blue R, methylene blue HCl salt, brilliant cresyl blue, acridine yellow, and FDC yellow, an FDC red, fluorescein free acid or mixtures thereof.”
“Among the sunlight protectants were Buffalo Black, Carbo-Jet Black, cellulose, carbon, aluminum powder and aluminum oxide. Among the microencapsulating walls were ethylcellulose and gelatin. Microcapsules containing virus and sunlight protectant were found to be more stable than virus alone.”
When taken in light of colored, autofluorescent fibers that emerge from the skin of Morgellons patients, as well as sufferers’ reports of black specks and black tar-like sweat coming from their skin, this invention becomes decidedly quite interesting. Added to the equation is the aforementioned fact that several researchers have noted that the Morgellons fibers appear to contain cellulose.
Kammy points us to another invention of note, as well: cyclic polymers. She makes the following observations: “Concentrated solutions of ring or cyclic polymers (CPs), which lack chain ends, are scientifically intriguing, since they defy a simple description in terms of the tube model which has been used rather successfully to describe the properties of linear and branched polymers,also called ‘self oscillating gel’. It has the attribute to form artificial cilia and self walking gel…”
Indeed, a 2007 article from New Scientist Magazine describes this invention, stating: “Nanoscopic hair-like polymer structures are being developed by US researchers and could help explain the way similar biological appendages, known as cilia, function inside the body. Cilia are cell appendages that perform many different jobs in the human body – from picking up sounds inside the ear to performing a sensory function in the kidney. Inside the lungs, cilia wiggle back and forth pushing mucus, and potentially harmful airborne particles, through the respiratory system.…”
Might inventions of this nature account for the moving, seemingly alive fibers that Morgellons patients describe?
The mystery deepens further as we begin to examine some of the disease agents that are encapsulated within these structures. Of particular interest to some independent Morgellons researchers are a class of viruses, known as Baculoviruses, that attack insect and arthropod hosts. The makers of pesticides based on baculoviruses tout them as harmless to humans and animals, but the medical literature raises some important questions about their safety. A 1995 article from the journal Cell Biology details ways in which recombinant baculoviruses have been used as a means of transferring genetic material into human liver cells. The same article tells us that certain baculoviruses are in development as a “biological weapon against particular insects.”
Baculoviruses are sometimes used in combination with other insect pathogens, working synergistically to increase pesticidal effect. Kammy nicely summarizes the mechanism by which these viruses work, stating: Entomopoxviruses and baculoviruses are pathogens of insects which replicate in the cytoplasm and nuclei of their host cells, respectively. During the late stages of infection, both groups of viruses produce occlusion bodies which serve to protect virions from the external environment. Immunofluorescence and electron microscopy studies have shown that large bundles of filaments are associated with these occlusion bodies.”
