The grand outlook they presented in 1995 with Trance Formation seems to be more prevalent now than at that time. Her prediction that George W Bush
was being groomed for the presidency (from having witnessed conversations?) should be spooky. These people she accuses are very rich and powerful,
and could legally sqaush her and Phillips like bugs for slander,why not?
Here's an interesting article that kind of sums up my response.
...One problem with dismissing her story is that Mark Phillips - who "rescued " Ms. O'Brien and admits having an extensive working~g relationship
with the CIA - co authored her book (Trance Formation of America), travels around the country with her, and helps publicize her story. I've meet Mr.
Phillips and he talks and acts much like high-powered corporate executive. His support of Ms. O'Brien's story is persuasive. Author and
investigative reporter Pat Shannon also claims Ms. O'Brien's allegations appear true. In short, there is reasonable support for Ms. O'Brien's
story, but so far, no serious denials.
After all, if Ms. O'Brien's story was false, why tell it? To make money off "conspiracy nuts " ? I don't see how. Ms. O 'Brien and Mr. Phillips
self-published their book, (Trance Formation of America); given the number of famous names, businesses, and institutions that they accuse of criminal
acts, their book can never be a best seller - the resulting libel suits would be ruinous.
Further, if Ms. O'Brien's allegations of New World Order intrigue are false - where 's the payoff? Her story is so well written that if it's
fiction, she and Mark Phillips should've published it as a mystery novel . . . with a little luck, they could retire on the movie rights. But
presented: as truth, their story's commercial value is negligible and will not help them to get elected, employed, or enriched. (Interesting insight,
hmm? Lies can sell, but truth will cost. . . ?)
Therefore. unless I find their motivation to lie, I can 't dismiss their story as false. In fact, the fundamental problem with Mark and Cathy's
story might be that they are still alive to tell it. If their allegations are true, they're exposing a massive, international conspiracy of
government sociopaths who can be reasonably described as Evil. If so, why haven't these "Satanists" silenced Mark and Cathy? On the other hand,
although all of those she incriminates would certainly deny her allegations -- but if her allegations against scores of individuals and institutions
are false, why hasn't someone sued her for libel ? Plausible explanations exist, but Ms. O 'Brien's story inspires more questions than answers.
So I don't know the truth of Cathy O'Brien's allegations. Therefore, the only truth that I report is this: the following text is an edited
transcript of Cathy O'Brien's speech at a public meeting of the Texas Justice Council in Dallas, Texas on June 11, 1996.
If Cathy O'Brien's allegations are false, they still contain enough insight to warrant consideration. If her allegations are true--they demand study
and vigorous political response.
