Conspiracy Theories

Sometimes, late at night, I find myself drifting to that strange part of YouTube. The part where extremely intelligent people find strange patterns in events and history then connect them almost ingeniously to form some sort of malicious meaning. About the time I begin to tell myself “Man, there might be something to this.” I realize I’m tired, delirious, and it’s time to go to bed.

Sometimes I do stumble upon a few interesting things. Here are a couple of confirmed “conspiracies” if you are interested in such things.

MK Ultra

Project MKUltra is the code name for a covert research operation experimenting in the behavioral engineering of humans (mind control) through the CIA’s Scientific Intelligence Division. The program began in the early 1950s, was officially sanctioned in 1953, was reduced in scope in 1964, further curtailed in 1967 and “officially halted” in 1973. The program engaged in many illegal activities; in particular it used unwitting U.S. and Canadian citizens as its test subjects, which led to controversy regarding its legitimacy. MKUltra involved the use of many methodologies to manipulate people’s individual mental states and alter brain functions, including the surreptitious administration of drugs (especially LSD) and other chemicals, hypnosis, sensory deprivation, isolation, verbal and sexual abuse, as well as various forms of torture.

Libor Scandal

The Libor scandal is a series of fraudulent actions connected to the Libor (London Interbank Offered Rate) and also the resulting investigation and reaction. The Libor is an average interest rate calculated through submissions of interest rates by major banks in London. The scandal arose when it was discovered that banks were falsely inflating or deflating their rates so as to profit from trades, or to give the impression that they were more creditworthy than they were. Libor underpins approximately $350 trillion in derivatives. It is controlled by the British Bankers’ Association (BBA).

Bilderberg Group

The Bilderberg Group, Bilderberg conference, or Bilderberg Club is an annual, unofficial, invitation-only conference of approximately 120 to 140 guests from North America and Western Europe, most of whom are people of influence. About one-third are from government and politics, and two-thirds from finance, industry, labour, education and communications. Meetings are closed to the public.

Here’s a list of 33 more if you’re bored.

    Att, I knew someone who was a victim MKUltra (although I didn’t know it had that name). He was in kind of sad shape, but a nice guy. I thought he was making it up until, later, I read that this was really done.

      Wow Jon!

      I am very sorry to hear that. It’s crazy to me that those sort of things happen to anyone. Sometimes it makes me worry about what kind of things are going on now around the world that we will find out about later – or may never find out about.
