CONTROLLED OPPOSITION - Preliminary Notes and References

This document is a work in progress. It provides some information from other sources on the subject of 'controlled opposition' and how it is used in the media to control public opinion. My own notes are added throughout. 

* * * * *

DEFINITION: A controlled opposition is a protest movement that is actually being led by government agents. Nearly all governments in history have employed this technique to trick and subdue their adversaries. Notably Vladimir Lenin who said ''"The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves."

That's just the mainstream definition. It isn't just protest movements covertly led by government agents any more. Controlled opposition has many approaches. Some of them are quite sophisticated and unsuspecting, while others are so simple and so obvious that it's a wonder that they work as well as they do. 

* * * * *

Operation Mockingbird was a secret campaign by the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to influence media. Begun in the 1950s....


Operation Mockingbird marked the official start of the US government's infiltration of the news and entertainment media. Of course, all this really means is that a lot of editors, writers, reporters, and film makers were recruited as intelligence assets, made to sign secrecy oaths, and thereafter were under the control of their new masters. 

* * * * *


It evolved with the CIA’s MKULTRA Program to restrain populations opposed to matters of political importance. Thus, nearly everyone became a member of what is called 'Controlled Opposition'. The COINTELPRO engineers this state using mass media hypnosis–broadcasting distracting, conflicting, and confusing propaganda.

There has been a covert intelligence operating–a CULTural black-op–that has undermined leaders, and directed “fan mentality,”  on all levels. . . .

Fear-induction by agents of deception, including “news anchors,” generate mass confusion, over-stimulation, and general apathy that plagues us socially, politically and economically.

The devil-doers manipulate by means of  fraud, misrepresentations, and omissions, and We The People become afraid to voice our opinions and react remedially, reasonably, and responsibly.

This is why the root cause of what ails us is the COINTELPRO–a psychological operation by organized criminals producing “controlled opposition” throughout society, disabling society. This treason is administered through grass-roots organizations and institutions by the agents of deception; including a few of these exposed below.

(Alex Jones, David Icke, Ted Gunderson, etc.)

Ted Gunderson told Alex Jones, “I was very active in the COINTELPRO program. Particularly the [media] back East during the 1960s,  and through the Vietnam War. You know we used it against them [the media and activists] and it was very effective. And it’s very effective today. And they’re using it today.  But what they’re doing today, makes the old COINTELPRO program by the FBI back in the 60s. look like a Sunday school class. These guys today are unbelievable. I mean their brazen, they’re violating the law. They’re coming out and trying to set people up. . . . What they’re doing is, they’ve infiltrated every group in America. They’ve got their own people in there; their own informants; their own provocateurs in there. And they’re going to stir-em-up. . . . Their provocateurs are going to come up with the idea of doing some violent acts."

[T]he controlled opposition psyops works to discredit each other, everything, and everyone. Predicate felons discredit racists; and “doctors” with no real credentials are promoted by discredited medical colleagues. Everyone demonizes everyone else in the COINTELPRO, in following Michael Aquino’s “Helter Skelter” satanic protocol.

To begin, the gang operates to co-create one-another’s credibility and celebrity. Then they feud, creating fake, and then deceived opposition as unwitting persons choose sides in frivolous controversies generating rhetorical debates. Then these agents discredit everything and everyone involved in the debate by publishing or broadcasting fraudulent claims, lacking material evidence, such as the alien invasion of humanity involving the Illuminati’s takeover by extraterrestrials. 

This is how they generate the end result of mass confusion, degeneration of the CULTure, and general apathy undermining activism–that is the socio-political objective of Controlled Opposition. This is how the grand distraction and gross deception operates for public persuasion and population manipulation. Any activist attempting to make progress in their chosen cause confronts this conspiracy reality draining their passion.

This is one of the main reasons for COINTELPRO’s nepotism–why these agents, including so-called “doctors,” “natural medicine” leaders, and “consumer advocates,” regularly interview each other, build each other’s blogs and credibility to feign their legitimacy, then self-destruct, taking people’s confidence and progressive movements with them.

G. Official Loony Conspiracies:
Rothschilds and/or Rockefellers and/or CFR and/or Bildebergers did it.
Jews and Jewish bankers -who already run everything- did it.
Satanists, Opus Dei or Reptilians did it.
It's a terrific variety of theories.

It plays out something like this:
The mainstream media push version A; hint at B; sneer at G.
The controlled right/intellectual media pushes version B.
The controlled left/intellectual media pushes version C.
The 'moderate' Fake internet sites push versions C and D.
The 'softcore' Fake internet sites push versions D and E.
The 'independent' Fake internet sites push version F.
The 'loony' Fake interent sites push variations of version G.

But every single one, from A to G are OFFICIAL versions, sanctioned and promoted by the 9/11 intelligence coverup operation and their CIA Fakes network. They have a flavor for every market.

The creation of this multiplicity of explanations is a core element of the coverup. Left to their own devices, people on the Internet might have figured out the truth themselves. But with this circus in action, there is always plenty of distraction and lots of division in opinion.

The intelligence coverup is not trying to stop 9/11 conspiracy theories on the internet. It's creating them. Then playing off supporters of the different theories against each other. That's a classic Cointelpro-style tactic.

The perpetrators knew that a sizeable segment of people were going to be pretty sure 9/11 was not as it seems. They don't mind that, for now. The immediate objectives are first, to to stop these skeptical views from gaining hold in mainstream opinion. Second, to prevent a coherent view forming which could convince a much broader number of people -particularly those on the political left.

* * * * *

These people are all over the Internet They are all over the 9/11 issue; all over the 'stolen' election of 2004; behind the psychological operations designed to inspire fear of earth changes, of global warming, of the Super-State and the so-called New World Order; all over the landscape of anti-corporate, anti-fascist expression on the Internet.

This army of information controllers is all over the 'free' information you are getting on the Internet. Time we opened our eyes to see them. It's not just the mainstream which is controlled. From the moment the Internet became prominent, a vast budget has been expended to control all the high-trafficked intersections on the information superhighway.

Many of these sites/assets were put in place long before 9/11. A key goal was to ensure that if some truth must come out, it will be a truth designed and controlled by intelligence agencies --with agency assets in a position to ensure misdirection and damage limitation.

To this end, an orgy of evidence [See Minority Report Part I] in the form of deliberately misleading 9/11 'clues', were designed into the 9/11 operation from the start --to give these assets prearranged talking points with which to fill their column inches and programming. This has served to confuse and confound.

A persistent theme of the disinformation spread by these assets is to portray the machinations of this elite group acting through the CIA/NSA/ETC. as if they originate from somewhere other than the US security/intelligence apparatus.

Suspicion is directed instead onto the Israelis, the 'City of London', 'International Bankers', The Rockefellers, The Bildebergers, and most infamously, the ill-defined, so-called New World Order. Of course, some of these elements are complicit in certain events, but the aim is to downplay the U.S. establishment's guiding hand and the broad CFR/corporate support.

* * * * *

Examples of some possible (high profile) controlled opposition:

Alex Jones
Donald Trump
Edward Snowden/Glenn Greenwald

Controlled opposition (CO) is dependent on a person or group that is already recognized among the public. From my list we can see that some high-profile CO agents might have already developed a large supportive following (Alex Jones), some might be in a position to create the illusion of a large supportive following (Donald Trump), and some might appear to have forced themselves into the public arena (Anonymous, Edward Snowden, and ISIS). The most significant common denominator here is that they wield a lot of public attention so their influence is comparatively huge. 

With most CO agents, this isn't so much the case. They don't depend on publicity to achieve their ends. They operate almost exclusively online and are only there to make noise, disrupt public discussions on selected subjects, and spread propaganda. They serve as thought police, whereas high-profile CO agents most often serve as opinion leaders and are far fewer in number. 

The public recognition of a high-profile CO agent or group doesn't have to be favourable, but being controversial and/or focusing on controversial subjects certainly helps. The main purpose of the controversy is to attract enough attention to get people's interest (based on its entertainment value, at the very least) in order that they will hear the intended message and react to it (form a belief or make a decision based on it). In these cases, the initial interest a person takes isn't necessarily related to any particular issue that's being presented so much as it is the controversial nature of the person presenting it. This is why Donald Trump, Anonymous, and Edward Snowden all hold a lot of public interest in spite of who they are or what their message might be. Once the message is heard, opinions will be formed about it based on the appeal of the presenter as much as on anything else. 

We can see from my list that CO agents might have different uses: 

- Alex Jones acting as controlled opposition to whoever pays him to say what they want. 

- Trump acting as controlled opposition to Clinton in order to assure that Clinton wins the presidency. 

- Anonymous acting as controlled opposition to the 1% in order to provide an outlet for future news 'leaks' that can be used to shape or control events in their favour. 

- Edward Snowden acting as controlled opposition to the US government in order to provide an outlet for future information 'leaks' that can be used as distractions from more significant newsworthy events. 

- ISIS acting as controlled opposition to UN forces in order to provide an excuse for continued wars, keeping arms manufacturers like Lockheed Martin in business with long-term government contracts worth billions of dollars. 

* * * * *

Some high-profile CO agents (i.e. an Alex Jones or Edward Snowden) will initially introduce information that legitimizes them among their target audience. This information will appear to expose something controversial, and an expectation that more information might be forthcoming from that same source ensures that they will continue to receive attention from that audience for an extended period of time. Once they've established themselves as a 'legitimate source', anything they produce will be more easily passed off as accurate. Very often, these types of CO agents can eventually be identified by the fact that they never reveal anything more than the initial information that brought them to the attention of their audience. 

* * * * *

Low-profile CO agents that you'll commonly meet online will often appear to be extremely patriotic, but they're also against individual rights and freedoms (i.e. freedom of expression). They work for an entity that doesn't value individual rights and freedoms and instead demands unquestioned loyalty, This is a distinguishing characteristic of these agents that can be used to identify them quickly and route them out. 

* * * * *

The media itself, in all its many forms, has become controlled opposition. Without it, we wouldn't have 'news' issues constantly thrust at us, demanding our attention. We're led to believe that they're important messages that threaten our peace and security, or they promise to offer advantages to us in hearing them, but they rarely do. Even the entertainment industry incorporates CO into its stream of endless presentations, as do the advertising and marketing industries. The media acts as controlled opposition by keeping us distracted with issues that those in control want us to focus on, while important issues closer to home and more meaningful to our lives become ignored. This helps to lead to social breakdowns that can then be rectified by those in control through methods that will only lead us to further dependency on them. In this case (with the media), the CO is the equivalent of mass hypnosis, where an illusory world plays out parallel to the real world, interweaving ideas and events to create a distorted and highly confused understanding of what's really going on. 

The media was created in order to enforce controlled opposition on the masses. 

* * * * *

A look at Snowden's background raises some red flags:

- He enlisted in the US Army as a Special Forces recruit but was discharged after breaking both legs in a training accident, which is an uncommon reason for discharge.

- He next found work as a security guard.
- Soon after this he somehow landed a job with the CIA dealing with information technology security (without having any prior training or experience).
- Unexplainable placement in a security position he's not qualified for.
- Moved on from the CIA and began doing contract jobs through Booz Allen Hamilton (this put him at the NSA).
- He was supposedly able to grab a very large amount of very sensitive information from the most highly secured government agency in the world after only being employed there for a few months.
- He was apparently earning between $120,000 and $200,000 a year, which he gave up to go into hiding, be labelled a traitor, become an enemy of the most vengeful government in the world, and be forced to live the remainder of his life in a foreign country, away from all friends and family, completely dependent on that country's continuous support
- He was able to escape to Hong Kong and then Moscow without much worry about being picked up along the way, in spite of the global surveillance and monitoring systems he supposedly 'exposed'
- Nothing he has revealed is really new informatio
- As a government whistleblower, he has been given unprecedented media coverage


* * * * *

Controlled opposition includes using false flag operations to sway public opinion or to distract from other issues. A long list of such events, posed as terrorist attacks or lone-nut shootings, have been occurring at an increasing rate, with seemingly less and less concern by the perpetrators (not the patsies) of being discovered, stopped, and punished. Media collusion and the quick destruction of evidence after equally quick investigations makes independent investigations impossible. 

A google search for "role players" and "crisis actors" reveals that there are many companies (mostly military contractors) that regularly hire people for such positions. Very little details are ever given in the job postings. Crisis actors and other role players have been identified in various false flag 'news' events, such as Sandy Hook and the Boston Marathon bombing. 

Government documents relating to planning and preparation of emergency drills reveal that these drills involve full scale 'live' enactments with full media coverage and medical response.


* * * * *

The FBI has admitted to setting up potential terrorists. They scout out prospective patsies (often in online forums), talk them into performing the act, help them plan it out, supply them with weapons and whatever else they need, and then bust them in the act to receive the praise and promotions.

A dossier of such cases can be found at this link:

The FBI targets the "disgruntled few" who would participate in a terrorist plot if given the opportunity, according to Aaronson. In many cases, the FBI recruits potential terrorists and provides them with plans, equipment, and weapons — before finally shutting them down and getting credit for thwarting another attack.


* * * * *

Another form of controlled opposition is to use SSRI drugs to dissolve the memories of surviving victims and witnesses of these illegal government false flag operations (at least where there are REAL casualties). These drugs often lead to increased depression and suicide, as has been the case among victims and witnesses of the Columbine shooting in its aftermath.

Ever since the OKC bombing in 1995, teams of government psychiatrists, psychologists, doctors, and councillors have been routinely assigned to handle the surviving victims and witnesses of these crimes and make sure they have plenty of the latest and most powerful pharmaceuticals on hand to deaden their thoughts and feelings and help them forget what happened. 

* * * * *


Half of the students didn't show up for school that day. At the hospital, Mark and Donna [Taylor] were warned [by the authorities] to keep quiet about the attack because there may be additional killers on the loose who will come after them if they talk.

Immediately after the shooting they started "Columbine Connections". They were ready with psychologists to convince the victims and their families to take psychiatric drugs to calm them down.

"Columbine Connections" was set up for counseling, and it was encouraging psychiatric drugs. The mail for the victims was sent to this organization, and they would open the mail.

Some more information on this organization from the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office:

A doctor, Bill Deagle, who treated some people after the Oklahoma City bombing, would travel to the Taylor house to provide medical services. He would encourage drug use, and would talk about the government putting chips under people's skin. 

This doctor is the host of a radio show called The NutriMedical Report

Some students hung themselves after the shooting. 

Some people have definitely improved from psychiatric drugs, but other people get worse with them.

Some antidepressants come with warnings that they may increase depression or suicidal thoughts. 

Donna Taylor says that many of the people at Columbine were taking these drugs, and it was making them worse, not better.

Donna Taylor took the psychiatric drugs for one year after the shooting. She complained the drug would make her hallucinate. 

* * * * *

Mark Taylor had been quite outspoken about what he saw at Columbine that didn't fit with the official story. In 2008 or thereabouts, he was allegedly framed for sending a bomb threat to a book store and ended up being sent to a mental facility where he was drugged into a perpetual zombie state. An online video exists showing his state before and after his incarceration. He appears to have been lobotomized. 

* * * * *

Dave Thomas was the Jefferson County District Attorney during the time of the Columbine massacre in 1999. He was also the DA during the time of the (still-unsolved) JonBenet Ramsey murder in 1996, and had been responsible for blocking the Boulder police's investigation of that crime. 

* * * * *

Dr. Bill Deagle, the doctor who was treating victim Mark Taylor and his family after the Columbine massacre, has an interesting background. He claims to have the inside scoop on all this Orwellian government activity going on, but he destroys any credibility he might otherwise have by pushing New Age BS and wacky conspiracy ideas that any serious researcher would agree were utter nonsense. He even has his own internet radio talk show set up for promoting his ideas. 

When I first read what Mark Taylor's mother reported (about Bill Deagle and everything she said about there being other shooters), the thought crossed my mind that maybe she was a CO agent, injecting false information to make serious researchers look foolish for believing it. That would mean that her son Mark would have to be in on it. That would mean that he was never really shot 7 times while in full public view on the school field while police and students watched. That would mean that the whole thing was staged. But I just don't believe that. So this Bill Deagle issue provides an important insight into the sort of people that these orchestrators of terror involve in their scripted psyops. 

* * * * *


In February 2002, for example, while teaching at another bioterrorism conference in St. Louis, Deagle says he spent three days "with Delta Force and Special Ops guys, all of them saying that our own government was in control and pulling the strings of terrorism. They warned me that the next event was going to be a radiological event involving six major cities, including Chicago, Denver, Atlanta, Seattle, Boston and San Diego."

Coincidentally, Deagle says he also treated a government worker who'd become ill while working inside massive, city-sized government tunnels and underground facilities in Colorado and Mexico. According to Deagle, there are more than 4,000 of these clandestine underground cities worldwide, including in and around 132 US cities. His patient, he says, "told me about things going on there, literally involving people from out of this world."

Deagle explained it during a recent speech in Vancouver, "I was called, not only as a doctor and a scientist—but also as a prophet." He has claimed he is, in fact, one of the two end-of-days prophetic witnesses identified in Revelations 11:3—"And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth..."

Taylor's mother would later break off relations with Deagle, complaining "he tried to control me and my son. It got deeper and deeper. It was insane," says Donna Taylor. She began to believe Deagle was "nuts."

She was also concerned about the number of medications he was prescribing to her son.

On March 11, 2004, the Colorado State Medical Board temporarily suspended his medical licence after investigating three separate incidents in which Deagle had allegedly over-prescribed a pharmacopia of drugs.

The twin towers of Deagle's own mini-empire focus on two seemingly separate but strangely interconnected websites—the CLAYandIRON Ministry, "commissioned by the Most High God & to bring the truth of the end of this Secular Age and prepare His People spiritually and physically for the Times of Jacob's Troubles," and Nutrimedicals Inc., a site that sells a typically prosaic assortment of vitamins and pills

What brings the two together is Deagle's daily two-hour weekday afternoon show on the Genesis Communication Network, a US-based internet radio station that features many of the big names in global conspiracy. From a makeshift studio in his Halifax home, Deagle takes—very—occasional calls from listeners, ramblingly reinterprets current news events to fit his own perspective and somehow manages to mingle conspiracy theories with plugs for his nutritional supplements.

Consider the following, delivered straight-faced and without inflection, to listeners at the Granada Forum: "All roads do lead to Rome," he said, appearing to read from the text on his laptop computer screen. "All kings and rulers are subject to the Jesuit general, the black Pope. Zionism is just an apostate arm of the Bablyonian Talmudic Satanism, subject to the Vatican. Spiritual dark lords of blood and sexual sacrifice are identical with IFEs—Identified Fiendish Entities. And they exist. In the astral plane. And the physical..."

He also claims, of course, to have been a member of what he calls "the inner circle," a claim some of those in the conspiracy world who interview him are quick to pick up on on. Alex Jones, who hosts another popular internet radio all-conspiracy-all-the-time program, introduced Deagle on his show as a man who had "worked for the government at every level...So much of his bio is classified..."

Deagle plays on the power of that mystery, claiming American Special Ops buddies and contacts in high places who tell him things unknown even to the most plugged in. "Senators on the armed forces committee," he boasted to Jones's listeners, "don't know what I know."

Deagle claimed his brother-in-law is the "executive assistant to our premier in Nova Scotia, where I live right now." That much is true...well, more or less. Michelle's brother, Wayne Fiander, is a former Tory candidate and current special advisor to premier Rodney MacDonald. 

Even within the mainstream conspiracy movement—and, post Iraqi-weapons-of-mass-destruction, there's nothing particularly "out there," of course, about questioning whether the American government is really telling the whole truth about 9/11, or anything else—many worry that Deagle's never-ending web-spiral of ever greater conspiracies is undermining their legitimate questions, and some even wonder if Deagle himself is part of a misinformation conspiracy to discredit them.

* * * * *

One of the main angles being used as controlled opposition to the elite's Orwellian plans for our future is the claim that a growing segment of the population (i.e. the uneducated and poor) is becoming increasingly psychotic. By the mid-1990s, new types of pharmaceutical drugs were suddenly being prescribed to more and more people (mostly youth) who were being labelled with new types of mental diseases that were being identified (i.e. undesirable mental states caused by new types of social pressures and poor early nurturing in broken homes). These drugs have proven time and again to increase psychotic tendencies in many people. One only has to watch the ads on TV to understand how bad these drugs are, many of them having a long list of negative side effects that include depression, violence, and suicide. 

Since 9/11, independent investigators, researchers, and anyone else who goes looking for answers or voices their opinions about all these controversial events going on in the world is automatically labelled a 'conspiracy theorist', and the government goes out of its way to besmirch that label while mainstream media mouthpieces avoid any reasoned discussions about their claims. Meanwhile, we find that many of the people that the government hires to do their dirty work in these covert ops are some of the wackiest conspiracy theorists out there. 

Consider the idea that a guy like Deagle might be used for more than just handing out pills like candy. He might be there to purposely adulterate the drugged minds of his patient-victims with the same New Age ideas he promotes, leading them into the illusion that they have also been 'specially chosen' like him to fight the 'evil overlords', and then recruiting them as role-players and crisis actors in the next false flag operation, or setting them loose online to spread their crazy BS among more reasoned discussion groups in order to disrupt them and steer other people away. 

These people have to come from somewhere not normal to be willing to take part in these sometimes fake, sometimes not-so-fake terrorist events.

From :

The filter bubble—the idea that online recommendation engines learn what we like and thus keep us only reading things we agree with—has evolved. Algorithms, network effects, and zero-cost publishing are enabling crackpot theories to go viral, and—unchecked—these ideas are impacting the decisions of policy makers and shaping public opinion, whether they are verified or not.

[W]e've reached the point where social networks are now used as primary news outlets. Seeking news from traditional sources—newspapers and magazines—has been replaced with a new model: getting all of one’s news from trending stories on social networks. The people that we know best are most likely to influence us because we trust them. Their ideas and beliefs shape ours. And the tech behind social networks is built to enhance this.

We are long past merely partisan filter bubbles and well into the realm of siloed communities that experience their own reality and operate with their own facts.

Since nearly half of web-using adults now get their news from Facebook in any given week, what counts as "truth" on our social platforms matters. When nonsense stories gain traction, they’re extremely difficult to correct. And stories jump from platform to platform, reaching new audiences and "going viral" in ways and at speeds that were previously impossible.

[T]he Internet doesn’t just reflect reality anymore; it shapes it. The mere fact of these theories being online and discoverable helps create this phenomenon.

What are some of the most popular alternative news and conspiracy websites? 

Reddit, DavidIcke, Project Avalon, Project Camelot, InfoWars, PrisonPlanet, BeforeItsNews, RumorMillNews, AboveTopSecret, GodLikeProductions, LetsRollForums, LunaticOutpost, etc.

Every one of these sites I've listed -- as well as many others that are just as popular -- is infiltrated with CO agents. Some, such as AboveTopSecret and GodLikeProductions, are apparently run by CO agents. This becomes evident from reading the many first-hand testimonials that can be found with a simple Google search. 

If you try to post intelligently thought out opinions about things that are commonly discussed on these sites, you just might find yourself quickly ostracized and blocked from posting on them once you say the wrong thing and it comes on their radar. 

Like many other writers and researchers, I have found myself suddenly blocked by many of these sites before I could even register with them. GodLikeProducrtions is so careful not to let me see what's on their site that they have set it up so I can't even view their forums any more. With other sites, my registration just doesn't go through, so I can't sign on. And still with other sites, there's just no connection and the little cursor just spins and spins as the page tries unsuccessfully to load. 

This is the sort of technological method being used to deflect unwanted voices from interfering with the distortions of truth and utter madness that these sites produce and promote. It is another form of controlled opposition. 

This short video is worth checking out. The last few minutes describe what I've just said in the last few paragraphs and briefly explains how these sites weed out real truth seekers:

Here's another one that adds some more information on how these controlled websites remove people: who spread information they don't want people to know about. Be sure to read all the subtitles while you listen to the person talking:

This one is apparently from Anonymous. They traced AboveTopSecret' to Langley, VA, home of the CIA:

  1. Hello, Mr. Forwood.

    I am writing this lengthy email in hopes that it reaches you as I'm a TI and these criminals routinely interfere with my communications at all levels.

    What you stated in your last paragraph: "shadowban

    Banning a user from a web forum in such a way that the banned user is unaware of the ban. Usually takes the form of showing that user's posts/profile/etc. only to that user; other users never see them. Considered underhanded chicken-shit behavior."

    Did you mean that people who are banned but THINK their posts can be seen by everyone is a technological trick in which only one person (or whomever they wish) can only see their post(s)?

    I think that this is called a "mirror site" and from a strategic point it makes sense that you can give the poster the illusion of being in the public's view (on a blog, website, forum, ect) when its only them so they THINK that they are getting the truth out.

    I've been a targeted individual for about twenty-five years and I have had USPS mail, email and all phone communications routinely interfered with as part of the isolation tactics and of course to try and keep me as ignorant of the truth as possible.

    I have received "failed login" and similar messages on several websites which could have provided some valuable information and prior to the created "failed login" I had no problem gaining access to these sites.

    I am one of those targets who truly believes that I was allowed to know that I was a TI when they "wanted me to."
    What I mean is that I was a "truther" for about six years prior to "discovering" that I was a TI in an "accidental" online search.

    As I said, I have been a target for approx twenty-five years (I am not bragging) and in that time I had THOUSANDS of incidents (of which I can consciously recall) in which I had the synchronization and a dozen or so more obvious GS tactics and had I came across websites, blogs, forums, social media, ect describing organized harassment, the brainwashing and mind control techniques and so on, I would have easily put two and two together and their conditioning of me would NOT have been nearly as effective as it was-I actually was allowed to "discover" that I was a TI in the last week of my Mom's life as I was wandering online.

    Hope that you read this.

    Heh. I have gotten at LEAST two emails from people that never sent them:Why? Because it was like a form letter and I only realized this MONTHS later and they were months apart.

    Do you have an estimate of how many targeted individuals (which we are not called)?

    What type of research do you think is of the most benefit to TIs?

    Thank you for being honest, for not having a price and for your incredibly insightful blog.

    Scott D. Snitzer from Buffalo, NY.

    1. I'm still not sure exactly what shadowbanning consists of, but I don't think it's quite the same as a mirror site. AFAIK, when you get shadowbanned you still appear to yourself to be an active user on the site, but nobody else sees you. Your posts look like they're getting posted, but they aren't.

      OTOH, when you get mirrored to another site, it could be set up so that you can still interact with others, but they aren't who you think they are. I've heard of software that looks just like facebook that's intended to be used this way. You just get redirected to the fake site when you try to access the real one.

      Whenever I start to investigate and research something controversial, I suddenly start having major interference and interruptions with my internet connection. I can spend a whole day struggling with the thing and only get about a half hours work done because of it. I also notice that I start getting more blog and youtube comments and private emails at these times that cause me further trouble trying to access them because of the computer problems. There is an obvious pattern to it all. My blog stats also show strange patterns of behaviour. I feel that the hit counts I see are fake.

      I have no idea how to count TIs. You might say that everyone is a target, but some take a conscious part in targeting others.

      I think that the most beneficial research to do is to study how the media is used to manipulate people. I mean all forms of media, from internet and TV to music, books, ads, etc. Psychology is very important to understand here, so educating yourself in that area helps as well.

      Thank you for your comments and questions.

  2. ATS was a decent site for a couple years. Around 2008 they sold out to god only knows who and started promoting moderators like 'blaine' and others that were anti-conspiracy and started actively and aggressively censoring material. During a Government shutdown, someone posted a whois that showed them to be owned and operated by the US Government. The thread was deleted and explained away as a april's fools joke, but the whois was real, Myself and several others checked it out. The site is now pretty much so overmoderated, any real conspiracy content is either moved to a 'hoax' forum or an 'LOL' forum, or moderated into compliance with whatever agenda-du-jour uncle same wants pushed. I made the terrible mistake of returning there after several years and posted on a 9-11 thread, within a few minutes all I got was a 404 error page, they didn't even have the cajones to ban me outright, after years of being a regular contributor there. Stay clear of that place, it is NOT WHAT IT SEEMS and unless you want your internet traffic monitored in real time by a gang of freemasons, mooks, and spooks, don't post anything there.
