NEW DVD FROM CONSPIRACY JOURNAL!

SECRET SIXES:
SUBLIMINAL IMBEDS IN THE MOVIES




This is the first video ever made available to the public, which exposes the secret, ungodly industry practice of placing Triple Sixes in major motion pictures as subliminal imbeds.

Do you think that there can really be overt Satanic worship in Hollywood? If you say "no", then Christian Minister James Lloyd may change the way you think. He has compiled a set of video film-clips which show the infamous number "666" cleverly embedded into numerous movies.

Some of the alleged imbeds are a bit far-fetched, and may have been mere coincidences. Most of them, however, are so downright bold that there is no question about the filmmaker's intent. The scene from Spielberg's "Back To The Future Part II" has to be seen to be believed!

Running at 75 minutes, this video features over 100 jaw-dropping clips from movies, TV shows, and even commercials. Find out who is responsible, and WHY this is being done.

This amazing and extremely rare DVD is not available in stores, so order now before it is too late!

Pentagon Details Cold War Mind-Control Tests

More than 30 years after it was written, the Pentagon has released a memorandum detailing its involvement in the CIA’s infamous Cold War mind-control experiments.

But a warning to conspiracy theorists on the lookout for new fodder: This isn’t quite Men Who Stare at Goats II.

The 17-page document (.pdf), “Experimentation Programs conducted by the Department of Defense That Had CIA Sponsorship or Participation and That Involved the Administration to Human Subjects of Drugs Intended for Mind-Control or Behavior-Modification Purposes,” was prepared in 1977 by the General Counsel of the Department of Defense and released on May 6 after a Freedom of Information Act request.

Most of the details have been revealed in earlier CIA papers. And if anything, the Pentagon’s recap is a reminder of how little the Department of Defense cops to knowing about the CIA projects.

Still, there are some tantalizing new details. Take the origins of MK-ULTRA, the notorious CIA program that dosed thousands of unwitting participants with hallucinogenic drugs.

Initially funded by the Navy, the project set out to study the effects of brain concussion. Soon after, scientists noted that a blow to the head prompted amnesia, leading to the pursuit of a drug-based technique to “induce brain concussion … without physical trauma.” Shortly thereafter, the project was transferred entirely to the CIA, because it involved “human experiments … not easily justifiable on medical-therapeutic grounds.”

Other programs, described briefly focused on mind control. MK-NAOMI was after “severely incapacitating and lethal materials … [and] gadgetry for their dissemination,” and MK-CHICKWIT was designed to “identify new drug developments in Europe and Asia,” and then “obtain samples.”

Edgewood Laboratories, where many of the programs were carried out, is also identified as having tested an incapacitating chemical on prisoners and military personnel without the agency’s approval. The drug, EA#3167, was “appl[ied] to the skin” of subjects using an adhesive tape.

Another program, MK-OFTEN, started as a study on dopamine. But the scope was soon expanded to evaluate ibogaine, a hallucinogen, and then several more drugs, in hopes of creating “new pharmacologically active drugs affecting the central nervous system [to] modify men’s behavior.”

And the Navy is reported to have “obtain[ed] heroin and marijuana” in an effort to develop speech-inducing drugs for use on defectors and prisoners of war. The drugs were eventually tested on 14 people: six volunteer research assistants, and eight unwitting Soviet defectors.

The report pins most of the nefarious activities on CIA-funded scientists. But that’s hardly the verdict of subsequent government documents, like a 1994 report from the U.S General Accounting Office. In that report, Pentagon officials are said to have “work[ed] directly with the CIA” and dosed “thousands” of military subjects with LSD and other drugs. Eyewitness accounts, like that of psychiatrist James Ketchum, describe outlandish Army efforts at creating hallucinogenic weapons in conjunction with MK-ULTRA.

And the Pentagon’s had plenty of experience in out-there mind control, even without CIA involvement. Troops have been dosed with LSD and cannabis oil,  and Pentagon officials were reportedly toying with the idea of psychic spies as recently as 2007.

Not surprisingly, the released report also doesn’t address darker questions that persist about the specifics of the CIA projects. Last year, a group of vets sued the agency for illnesses and trauma caused by the “diabolical and secret [MK-ULTRA] testing program,” which they allege included experiments with nerve gas, psychochemicals, and brain implants.

Six veterans are suffering from all kinds of ailments tied to this "diabolical and secret testing program," according to a statement from the vets’ lawyers, passed on to SpyTalk’s Jeff Stein.

The experiments allegedly included "the use of troops to test nerve gas, psychochemicals, and thousands of other toxic chemical or biological substances, and … the insertion of septal implants in the brains of subjects in … mind control experiments that went awry, leaving many civilian and military subjects with permanent disabilities." Subjects were tested without their consent, the veterans say. And when the trials were over, the government failed to "provide health care or compensation."

In a book published last year, former military psychiatrist James Ketchum describes an Army project — separate from the CIA’s efforts — that took place at Edgewood Arsenal in Maryland. There, he saw test subjects "carry on conversations with various invisible people for as long as 2-3 days." Others "salute latrines" and attempt to "revive a gas mask" that they mistake for a woman.

The feds insist that MK-ULTRA ended, when it was exposed during Congressional hearings. But interest in chemical mind-control lives along, in some corners of the military-intelligence community. In a 2003 memo, then-Justice Department lawyer John C. Yoo suggesting that interrogation drugs could be used if their effects were not permanent or profound. Since then, evidence has accumulated that some detainees may have been drugged. "It’s coming back," retired Colonel John Alexander said.

- 10-4, DO YOU HAVE YOUR EARS ON PLANET EARTH DEPARTMENT -

Has Something Tampered With Voyager 2 Spacecraft?

It left Earth 33 years ago, now it's claimed the Voyager 2 spacecraft may have been hijacked by aliens after sending back data messages NASA scientists can't decode.

NASA installed a 12-inch disk containing music and greetings in 55 languages in case intelligent extraterrestrial life ever found it.

But now the spacecraft is sending back what sounds like an answer: Signals in an unknown data format.

In late April, the signals sent back from Voyager 2 suddenly arrived in an unknown format. Unable to decipher the data stream and completely baffled by the cause for the shift in how Voyager 2 communicates with its Earth-bound team, NASA scientists have for the time being instructed the probe to send only information on its operational health and status while they get to the bottom of the sudden and strange behavior.

Engineers are working to solve the strange data transmissions. It is now being suggested that someone, or something, is trying to send a secret message to Earth.

Alien expert Hartwig Hausdorf said: "It seems almost as if someone had reprogrammed or hijacked the probe – thus perhaps we do not yet know the whole truth" 

Launched in 1977, Voyager 2 and its twin, Voyager 1, explored the giant planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune and kept on going. Nearly 33 years later, they are the most distant human-made objects.

Voyager, because of its distance from Earth and the resulting time-lag for commanding, was designed to operate in a highly-autonomous manner. In order to do this and carry out the complex sequences of spacecraft motions and instrument operations, three interconnected on-board computers were utilized. Currently, it takes 13 hours for a message from Voyager to reach Earth.

Voyager 1 is 10.5 billion miles from Earth and in about five years is expected to pass through the heliosphere, a bubble the sun creates around the solar system, and enter interstellar space.

Voyager 2 will follow after that.

The Enigma of UFO Beams
By Scott Corrales

Allegations of injuries caused by the presence of unidentified flying objects go back to the very start of the contemporary manifestations of the phenomenon in the 1940s. Readers with a thorough background in the field are probably thinking right now of the Stephen Michalak case (Canada, 1965) or in Aracariguama case (Brasil, 1949), or far less lurid incidents like the patrolman whose injury – a pet alligator bite – was allegedly healed by a beam from a UFO Groups of humans have been victims of these beam attacks, as in Argentina’s Trancas case, where a family was besieged within their home by beam weapons that caused a drastic increase in temperature, or Brazil’s Ilha Colhares, where townspeople fell prey to the predations of the box-like – and still unexplained – chupa-chupas.

Older cases can almost surely be found, going back as far as the Bible, when the explanations for these beams were usually associated with the punishment of the wicked or manifestations of extreme divine displeasure. It may sound a bit cavalier to say “physical effects are the least of it”, but humans have also undergone profound psychological changes as a result of these projections: changes in religious philosophy, dramatic IQ increases and other mutations are known, although they remain largely anecdotal. In olden days, we would refer to this phenomenon as “illumination” – perhaps with good reason. Much like Paul on the way to Damascus, a non-human presence crosses our path and changes our lives forever in a blaze of light.

Developments in the study of electromagnetic radiation have given us new insights on the effect of the various types of "rays" emitted by UFOs. We know that low-frequency microwaves can cause irreparable damage to the human nervous system, and other wavelengths can actually be proven beneficial to humans in moderate amounts. Normally, 10 to 30 milligauss of exposure is considered to be acceptable, and it is what we receive from computer terminals, television sets, microwave ovens, etcetera.

The "benign" rays issued from unidentified flying objects are few and far between when compared to the lethal ones which have been the topic of a dozen studies. The deaths of witnesses on account of exposure to unknown radiation are the discussed in the book Confrontations by Jacques Vallée, in which he recounts alarming unprovoked attacks upon humans in northern Brazil. At the book's core are the attacks by machine-like devices referred to as chupa-chupas by the natives. Vallée leads us through nightmarish accounts in which the protagonists--who have limited exposure to a "space minded" culture—provide candid descriptions of injuries inflicted by beam and gas weapons, the deaths of friends and relatives in such attacks, and the aftereffects of such experiences.

On Saturday, December 30, 1972, Ventura Maceiras, the 73-year-old watchman of a property located in the Angel Cabañas Municipal Park of Tres Arroyos, province of Buenos Aires (Argentina), was calmly sipping tea one evening when a brilliantly illuminated object appeared out of nowhere in a nearby clearing. He could make out the forms of two beings clearly within the glowing object, and with the rustic courtesy of the gaucho, Maceira proffered his cup of "mate" – the traditional Argentinean infusion – to the new arrivals. His cat, having just given birth to litter of kittens, ran away from the unnatural light, forsaking her young.

Events following the apparition of the alien craft proceeded quickly. Maceira saw the beings depart in a flash of light, and immediately began to feel ill, with slight vomiting and incontinence. Strange tendrils of fine, thread-like material (a form of Morgellon’s Disease?) streamed from his eyes and his blood cell count dropped precipitously. Researchers were startled to find that fish in an adjacent pond had died of unknown causes. Maceira's cat returned, displaying patches of burnt fur as if from extreme heat, and would later die mysteriously, along with Maceira’s dog, who is seldom mentioned in the numerous retellings of the case. But a totally unforeseen event began to transpire: Maceira began to acquire thoughts foreign to his experience and meager education. He was able to discuss the finer points of history, philosophy, medicine and astronomy with experts come from the capital to see him. To the amazement of his attending physicians, Maceira was growing a new set of teeth. It should be noted, however, that subsequent investigations called into question the dental development and the alleged improvement to his eyesight.

In the early evening hours of October 1, 1977, a 8-year-old boy named Martin Rodriguez was allegedly injured by a UFO on the outskirts of the Spanish city of Tordesillas (perhaps best remembered as the place where Spain and Portugal signed a treaty in the 16th century, partitioning the entire planet between them). Young Martin had left school and headed to a deserted part of town to play hide-and-seek with his friends, always within earshot of each other. Accompanied by his inseparable buddy Fernando, they came to a ruined building. Picking up a stone from the ground, Martin tossed it over the fence into what should have been a vacant lot, but was startled to hear a metallic clang on the other side. Unable to resist their curiosity, the boys entered the derelict structure only to face a blinding source of light at the far side of the ruined property.

The object had the shape of a teardrop, and hovered over the bits of broken brick and loose stone. Mesmerized by the incredible sight, Martin did not react when a seemingly solid beam of light emerged from the teardrop and impacted against his solar plexus. He would later say that he felt “hooked” by the beam and unable to break free from the light. Fernando, dazed by the situation, tried to help his friend by tugging at him – it was at that point that the beam was cut off and the teardrop-shaped light source ascended slowly into the dark skies. Martin slumped helplessly to the ground.

Subsequent days brought visits from family doctors, friends and townspeople who had heard about the event. Martin experienced headaches and dizziness; his narrative was dismissed as “childhood fantasy” even though his father had collected strange black ashes from the site above which the teardrop-shaped light had supposedly hovered. Perhaps more disturbing for the frightened lad and his parents was his partial loss of vision a fortnight after the incident, foreshadowing worse to come.

For indeed, the previously healthy eight-year-old developed life threatening medical symptoms after falling into a coma that reportedly lasted several weeks, then being subjected to surgical procedures whose purpose was never made clear to the boy or his desperate parents (beyond a casual diagnosis of hydrocephaly) and which would lead to ten more operations.

In 2009, Martín was invited to Spanish UFO journalist Iker Jimenez’s Cuarto Milenio television show to revisit his experience, assisted by a chilling dramatization of the events, and to describe the object in greater detail, down to its struts, hatchway and its “dull leaden color”. TV viewers were treated to a sketch of the object, showing a three-pronged “projection device” that was the source of the beam.

Martín Rodríguez’s brush with the unknown did not give him superpowers or boost his IQ. It simply ruined the life of a healthy, vibrant child who was discreetly accused of being “mental” as a result of the ordeal. When asked during the interview if he would like to see the object again, Martín was ambivalent. He hesitated, and replied that it would be good show others what he had seen that night, just to dispel any doubts as to the reality of his story.

Martín would have perhaps found some comfort over the years in knowing that he was not alone. Other humans have found their lives ruined by emanations from unknown objects: look at what happened to “Pedro”, the protagonist of a tragic case from Luis Ramirez Reyes’s Contacto: México (1977)

On a given a weekend in December 1988, Pedro and a friend had gone to play an early morning game of tennis at the clay courts facing a large auto assembly plant on the outskirts of Mexico City. While waiting for other colleagues to join them, the two men suddenly felt that "the sun was rising behind them." Turning around, the were absolutely floored by the sight of a descending circular vehicle that irradiated formidable amounts of white light, illuminating the entire area. The saucer-shaped craft touched down on a nearby field.

Pedro and his friend suppressed a strong urge to flee and forced themselves to remain and see what further incredible developments would occur. Their courage and patience were rewarded with a glimpse of two creatures, described as clad in tight-fitting grey outfits and standing some four feet tall. Pedro added that "the creatures didn't look like you ufologists describe them", indicating that their heads had normal proportions, had small mouths and noses and slanted eyes.

The astonishing experienced lasted approximately 20 minutes, in Pedro’s estimation. The diminutive aliens returned to their craft, which then rose into the air and disappeared "like they do in the cartoons". The witnesses decided that the wisest course of action was to share their experience with no one.

The following day, Pedro returned to his job at the car assembly factory feeling confused and dejected. He told investigator Ramírez that he feared that his co-workers would take him for "a lunatic or a drug user" if he related his story. While carrying out his duties, the UFO witness was suddenly gripped by unexplained seizures, convulsing on the assembly line. He was whisked off to a medical facility, where the doctor on duty decided to send him to a psychiatrist, given that Pedro "ranted about aliens during his seizures."

A psychiatrist determined that while he could find nothing wrong with Pedro, his disclosures of the sighting and the aliens might indicate schizophrenia. The hapless experiencer was sent to a mental health facility where he claims he was injected with a substance that made him "look like nut", thereby making it easier for everyone around him to dismiss him as hopelessly insane. Despite the drug's influence, Pedro tried telling his parents that he wasn't crazy, but he was not believed.

The UFO witness was committed to a mental health facility where he witnessed the most atrocious abuse of the inmates by their keepers. One of the asylum's orderlies suspected that Pedro was clearly not insane, and told him to "behave like a paranoid" to avoid further problems during his stay at the institution.

Fortunately for Pedro, his companion at the tennis court had chosen to disclose the UFO experience in its entirety, despite having promised to conceal it. This ultimately proved to be the key that secured Pedro's release from the mental health facility. "But upon my release," he told Ramírez,"I was still not free from criticism by my fellows. People clearly did not believe me or my friend, to the extent that I was refused employment in [the car assembly plant] or in other area factories."

Lest the reader begin to think that these incidents are somehow confined to Latin America and Spain, there are several European cases that also present similar situations. A rather dramatic Scandinavian case comes to mind: Aarno Heinonen and Esko Viljo’s brush with the unknown in January 1970 in the forests of Imjarvi, Southern Finland. These two cross-country skiers had stopped for a break and noticed the approach of a very powerful light, enveloped in a rotating red mist. The object disgorged a diminutive occupant who fired a pulsating beam at Heinonen amid the thick red mist. The object, the ufonaut and the red mist vanished at once, leaving nothing but emptiness. The injured human was unable to walk and had to be assisted by his companion back to the nearest village. Symptoms of the unwarranted beam attack included throbbing headaches, vomiting and black urine. This initial experience apparently unlocked a succession of what we may term “contactee” activities involving both men.

- SHADES OF THE MAD GASSER OF MATTOON DEPARTMENT -

Afghan Girls Hit Again by Suspected Gas Attack

KABUL - Dozens of schoolgirls in Afghanistan were admitted to hospital on Tuesday after two suspected poisonous gas attacks on schools, officials said, the latest in a spate of similar incidents.

Thirty schoolgirls in the northern city of Kunduz and six in Kabul were admitted to hospital, health officials and the interior ministry said.

"Others are also coming in. We don't know the exact number of girls affected, it could be many. It's a similar incident to what happened in Kabul and Kunduz last week," said Homayun Khamosh, head of the Kunduz city hospital where girls were admitted.

One of the girls taken ill in Kunduz said she saw a man in black clothes, with his mouth and nose wrapped in a cloth, throw a bottle near the school. The bottle appeared to release a smelly fume, the girl who said her name was Farzana told Reuters.

The attacks are the latest in a string of incidents at girls' schools involving an airborne substance which officials say could be poisonous gas. Blood tests taken from girls affected by previous attacks have not yet yielded any results.

An interior ministry spokesman said he had no information on the Kunduz attack but confirmed that half a dozen schoolgirls and one teacher from a school in Kabul's fourth precinct were taken to a nearby clinic after smelling a gas and falling ill.

"It's not clear what was the cause of the poisoning, whether it's a destructive action or a kind of gas used for something else but we will check whether this is an action of the enemies or food poisoning," Zemarai Bashary said.

A Reuters reporter outside the Kabul school said several police officers and police cars had surrounded the area. One schoolgirl, a 15-year old called Samira, was on gate duty shortly before her classmates were taken ill.

"I smelled something very sweet and when I went and told my teachers about it they said it was not a big incident but later on I saw girls falling down and collapsing and vomiting so we called the police," she said.

Samira said she saw three men standing outside the school shortly before smelling the gas.

Police at the school played down the incident and said the gas was coming from a leak in a shop across the street, but the shop vendor said he had no gas on his premises.

Three suspected poison gas attacks on girls' schools have taken place in Kunduz over the past few weeks and last week 22 schoolgirls and three teachers fell ill when their school was struck.

It is not clear who is responsible for the attacks. In the past officials have blamed the Taliban but the Islamist group has denied involvement and condemned the possible attacks.

The Taliban banned education for girls when they ruled Afghanistan from 1996 to 2001, and in many rural areas where the Taliban hold sway, girls' schools remain closed, teachers have been threatened and some girls have been attacked with acid.

Attacks on girls' schools using suspected poisonous gas have increased since last year. In most cases the girls reported smelling something sweet, then fainting, dizziness and vomiting.

None of the cases was fatal.

- TALES OF THE WEIRD DEPARTMENT - 

Even Disney World Has Ghostly Legends
By Mike Conley

On Thanksgiving Day, my family and I enjoyed going to the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World near Orlando, Fla. It was my 9-year-old daughter's first ever visit to the place "where dreams come true" and my first time going there since I was her age some 34 years ago.

When I visited Walt Disney World back in 1975, the park was getting ready to celebrate the nation's bicentennial and Gerald R. Ford was president of the United States. His figure had recently been installed in the Hall of Presidents. There was no Epcot, no Hollywood Studios and no Animal Kingdom there at the time. Needless to say, much has changed since then.

But some things at Walt Disney World have not changed much. One of them is the Haunted Mansion, one of the most popular attractions at this and the other parks operated by the Disney company.

Over the years, I have learned that there are a great many adults who enjoy vacationing at Walt Disney World. The place is a lot of fun for grownups as well as kids. I guess you could call them Disney World fans. And within that group, there are what you might call Haunted Mansion fans. They call tell you all about the special effects used in this unique ride and how it came to be built. They have gone through it countless times and have collected all the posters, soundtrack albums and books associated with this dark and scary corner of the Magic Kingdom. A friend of mine has the blueprints for the Haunted Mansion at Walt Disney World and it is among his most prized possessions.

And no Disney attraction has spawned more urban legends and myths than this one. By its very nature, the Haunted Mansion at the Disney theme parks has become associated with some weird tales. More than one person who has entered its gates has wondered: Is the Haunted Mansion really haunted?

At Disneyland in California, people talk about the crying boy. His ghost is seen sitting next to the exit of the ride, weeping into his hands. The story behind this spirit is that the deceased boy's mother asked Disneyland employees if she could spread her child's ashes in the attraction, presumably because he enjoyed it so when he was alive. The Disneyland employees said no. Undeterred, she snuck into the ride at night, and spread her son's ashes there. His ghost haunts the place to this day, according to a Web site.

The Haunted Mansion in Florida is said to be haunted by a mysterious man with a cane. According to the legend, a man was piloting a small plane back in the 1940s over the land where the theme park would be built years later. His airplane crashed into a lake near where the Haunted Mansion was built.
Supposedly, his soul has settled into the attraction.

He is known as "the man with a cane."

At one point, an employee was working the load area during the Stretching Room scene when the area is empty. All of sudden, he looked up and there was a man in a suit holding a cane sitting in one of the ride's "Doombuggies." The employee tried to speak to the mysterious man but he did not respond. The employee got in touch with other workers in that part of the Haunted Mansion and told them to keep a watch for the rider. But he was never seen again. They knew that he was not one of the special effects in the attraction, according to the Web site.

In the Seance Circle portion, the background music is said to keep on playing even when the attraction is turned off.

A sound designer was setting up equipment in the area before the attraction was open to the public. He kept hearing music coming from behind one of the new walls. He believed that a radio had been walled up accidentally. After several days, the music kept playing and no radio announcer ever came on. The man could never find the source of the strange sound.

Those are just a few of the many legends associated with the Haunted Mansion. I don't know if any of those stories are true. But I do know that Disney's Haunted Mansion claims to have 999 ghosts and there is always room for one more.

- WAITING FOR SOMETHING TASTY DEPARTMENT -

Holy Man Says He Has Not Eaten in 70 Years


An 83-year-old Indian holy man who says he has spent seven decades without food or water has astounded a team of military doctors who studied him during a two-week observation period.

Prahlad Jani spent two-weeks in a hospital in the western India state of Gujarat under constant surveillance from a team of 30 medics equipped with cameras and closed circuit television.

During the period, he neither ate nor drank and did not go to the toilet.

"We still do not know how he survives," neurologist Sudhir Shah told reporters after the end of the experiment.

"It is still a mystery what kind of phenomenon this is."

The long-haired and bearded yogi was sealed in a hospital in the city of Ahmedabad in a study initiated by India's Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), the state defence and military research institute.

The DRDO hopes that the findings, set to be released in greater detail in several months, could help soldiers survive without food and drink, assist astronauts or even save the lives of people trapped in natural disasters.

"(Jani's) only contact with any kind of fluid was during gargling and bathing periodically during the period," G. Ilavazahagan, director of India's Defence Institute of Physiology and Allied Sciences (DIPAS), said in a statement.

Jani has since returned to his village near Ambaji in northern Gujarat where he will resume his routine of yoga and meditation. He says that he was blessed by a goddess at a young age, which gave him special powers.

During the 15-day observation, which ended on Thursday, the doctors took scans of Jani's organs, brain, and blood vessels, as well as doing tests on his heart, lungs and memory capacity.

"The reports were all in the pre-determined safety range through the observation period," Shah told reporters at a press conference recently.

Other results from DNA analysis, molecular biological studies and tests on his hormones, enzymes, energy metabolism and genes will take months to come through.

"If Jani does not derive energy from food and water, he must be doing that from energy sources around him, sunlight being one," said Shah.

"As medical practitioners we cannot shut our eyes to possibilities, to a source of energy other than calories."
