Corn, a lucrative crop with a notorious thirst, is burning up in fields. Cotton plants are too weak to punch through soil so dry it might as well be pavement. [NP] farmers with the money and equipment to irrigate are running wells dry in the unseasonably early and particularly brutal national drought that some say could rival the Dust Bowl days. [....] The pain has spread across 14 states, from Florida to Arizona, with southern Missouri dealing with dry conditions but not drought. In Texas, where the drought is the worst, virtually no part of the state has been untouched. More than 30 percent of the state's wheat fields may be lost, adding pressure to a crop in short supply globally. [NP] The question, of course, becomes why. From a meteorological standpoint, the answer is fairly simple. 'A strong La Nina shut off the southern pipeline of moisture,' said David Miskus, who monitors drought for the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration. [....] The United States Department of Agriculture's Farm Service Agency has already provided more that $75 million in assistance to ranchers nationwide, with most of it going to Florida, New Mexico and Texas. An additional $62 million in crop insurance indemnities have already been provided to help other producers. [....] Climatologists say the great drought of 2011 is starting to look a lot like the one that hit the nation in the early to mid-1950s. That, too, dried a broad part of the southern tier of states into leather and remains a record breaker."

2011 - The CIA & the Military’s Mind Control Research -

Imagine a world where all privacy has been eliminated, where none of your own personal thoughts can be protected, and where Big Brother can modify your thinking electronically without you even realizing it. A nightmarish future like that would be much worse than the surveillance society described in George Orwell’s book 1984. In an ultra high-tech electronic police state, there would be no place to run and no place to hide.

More than half a century ago, the CIA started working on covert mind control technology. One of the earliest of the CIA’s secret behavioral control programs was known as Project Artichoke. According to The New York Times on Aug. 2, 1977, the scope of this project was summarized in a CIA memorandum dated Jan. 25, 1952 wherein CIA officials wanted “the evaluation and development of any method by which we can get information from a person against their [sic] will and without his knowledge.”

The memo also asked if they could “get control of an individual to the point where he will do our bidding against his will and even against such fundamental laws of nature as self-preservation.”

On April 13, 1953 Project Artichoke grew into a super-secret project called MK-ULTRA that was overseen by Dr. Sidney Gottlieb, who Counterpunch called a “pusher, assassin, pimp and U.S. official poisoner.” In his well-known book The Search for the Manchurian Candidate,* author John Marks wrote, “The agency’s brainwashing experts gravitated to people more in the mold of the brilliant—and sometimes mad—scientist, obsessed by the wonders of the brain.” Gottlieb’s boss at the CIA was the notorious Christian Zionist James Angleton.

Government scientists have been busy over the years. The powerful neuroscience-based mind-control systems that were developed can also be called radio-frequency weapons, non-lethal weapons, EMR weapons (electromagnetic radiation weapons), or psychotronic weapons. To develop these instruments, innocent civilians were targeted and experimented on without their consent.

According to Cheryl Welsh, an internationally recognized non-lethal weapons expert: “From the 1950s to the 1970s, victims were predominantly the powerless, the poor and prisoners. Today, victims include all walks of life: Men, women, young and old, especially whistleblowers, activists and foreigners.”

As the Zionists tighten their grip on the world, the use of sinister super-technology is becoming more widespread. Similarly, the number of people speaking out against it is also dramatically increasing. In the second half of the last decade, a number of excellent books have been written on the subject of covert electronic mind control.

The authors of these books are doctors and scientists, former political activists, dissidents and prisoners. The very thought that the powers-that-be are using ultra high-tech, mind-bending science against innocent, law-abiding people is appalling, especially when the ultimate goal is to completely conquer the human mind.

Such a future should make the average thinking person quite uneasy. It should even trigger a strong determination to resist.

It should also make people realize that unless these madmen are stopped, they will eventually unleash this horrific, science-gone-mad weaponry on everyone and turn the entire planet into a living psychotronic hell.
