Wow... I mean, just... well, wow.
For several months, a Certain Authoritative Figure and I have been speculating - more off the record than on - that the whole political "scene" in the USSA is so looney and nutty that one has to entertain the possibility that mind manipulation techniques and technologies (or for that matter, just plain old fashioned "magic and possession") might be being used on certain members of Congress. After all, in the last (s)election, the Clowns In America ran several "retired" candidates of their own, and the Clowns In America were and probably still are into "that sort of research." Just recall, for example, Richard Helms oozing hubris and grease in front of the Church Committee when he was testifying about the MK-ULTRA program.
The problem may be much simpler, but equally problematical, if this article shared by V.T. is to be believed:
Now, you'll note this is an "old" story, from 2017, but it is still pertinent, for according to the story, several members of Congress (we're not told who) are taking medication for Alzheimer's disease:
They could be compromised by corruption, sure. But it could also be something outside of their control, like aging and the onset of mental incapacity. While these are sensitive topics, we’d be doing a disservice to democracy by not discussing them. People have got to know if their politicians are well.
In early October, we learned that many members of Congress get prescriptions hand-delivered by Grubb’s Pharmacy, the oldest dispensary in town.
A cool perk that nobody else in America has? That’s par for the course in Washington. But there’s more to the story and it should alarm every American. Mike Kim, the owner of Grubb’s, told STAT News that he is routinely filling prescriptions for drugs that treat Alzheimer’s disease. For members of Congress!
If pharmacists are shipping Alzheimer’s medication to Capitol Hill, then some number of congressmen are medically unqualified to hold office. And we don’t know which ones or how many. They could be back-benchers or they could be sitting at the upper tiers of leadership, making decisions of global significance. Since one’s rank in Congress is based mostly on seniority, the oldest members have the most power. Terrifying.
Terrifying indeed, for more reasons than mentioned in the article. To take just two of those reasons, consider just the demographic problem: members of the House or Senate that have seniority have the experience and so on to know how to get things done, and say what one will about Senators Feinstein or Graham or McConnell or Reid, they're at least of a generation that was not the product of Contemporary Amairikuhn Quackademia, unlike the younger generation which is, as far as I can tell, not only crazy, but stupid on top of it all. It takes no sophisticated technology or magical spells to manipulate the mind of a mindless young nitwit. But that brings us to reason number two: the older generation is, well, older, and presumably suffers from all of the problems that come with that, possibly up to and including Alzheimers.
The problem here is that one need not use such technologies on such people: one would only have to be aware of the fact that Congresswoman X or Senator Y was taking such medication, and threaten to expose the fact. It is, in other words, yet another method in the "control file" to ensure that members of Congress don't stray too far off the reservation. And while we're hanging out on the end of the High Octane Speculation Twig (H.O.S.T.), it would be a relatively easy thing to misdiagnose said members of Congress, then prescribe medications they don't really need, and then threaten to expose it if they don't "play ball." And if one were really byzantine and underhanded - and it is very difficult to believe that anything like this could happen in Swampington, D.C. (cough hack wheeze) - one could then carefully seed such stories into the media, and engender mistrust in that older generation in order to bring in the young stupid and crazy crowd. And for that matter, one might even entertain the scenario that at some point, the medication is deliberately altered to induce "compliant" states, or what-have-you, depending on the need of the moment.
Senator Frank Church (D-Idaho) saw it all coming back when he chaired the committee looking into the abuses of the intelligence "community":
If this government ever became a tyranny... the technological capacity that the intelligence community has given the government could enable it to impose total tyranny, and there would be no way to fight back.... I don't want to see this country ever go across the bridge. I know the capacity that is there to make tyranny total in America, and we must see to it that this agency and all agencies that possess this technology operate within the law... so that we never cross over that abyss. That is the abyss from which there is no return." (Senator Frank Church, Chairman, Senate Intelligence Committee, on Meet the Press, National Broadcasting Company, Washington, D.C., August 12, 1975. Cited in my Microcosm and Medium, p. 121.)
The capacity that he refers to are mind manipulation technologies. But Church was no fool, and knew also of the endless possibilities that control files and blackmail could also present. Wed both together and one gets a Congress that literally has lost its mind.
See you on the flip side...
