Right to Privacy

Right to Quiet Enjoyment

No Entry without Permission

Trespassing to the person..battery...a tort.

Powers of States and People that pertain thereto...covered in the Bill of Rights transferred to the Constitution.

All pertain to invading a persons mind. ALL!

Is there a way to scream on ATS!


Going into a person's mind is tantamount to being a peeping tom, the sickest of psychological perversions. Using it for gain, nothing more than a slaver, lower than the pirates we incarcerate.

This is a crime that should be met with the severest of penalties. There is no reason psy ops should need these tactics to gain the acceptance of congressional backing. There are healthy alternatives that would have gained as much if not MORE backing. Sloppy, damn sloppy!

Another thread on this subject:

Now, please keep in mind, at the time I posted that I thought this thread was "better", there was less on EACH thread. Silly me, I mean who really cares, and it's not exactly my place to go around judging threads like a Conspiracy County Fair exhibit docent. LoL.

Hurray for those who stood up and said a resounding NO, they will
not do that to fellow Americans! Those who have done these things
need to be rounded up and shot as traitors in a time of war. Psyop's
usually targets the target's entire family, loved ones, aquaintences
in order to make them (those who are controlling the operation)
seem all powerful. How many peoples lives have been destroyed because
of these traitorous fiends? They cause the breakup of familes, loss of
income, jobs, property, life savings and retirements. In worse case scenerios
even lives.

Restitution of the the things stolen using Pysop's need to be replaced!

One now has to question the legitimacy of the entire government.
Think about it, Big businesses are usually Supra national corporations
That owe allegiance to no one except themselves. The military Industrial
complex are these corporations controlling our military. No wonder everything
is so screwed up now in the US. They are controlling our government and with
it's help the military.

If I may request, please, to be directed to a good place to read aBOUT Hegelian dialects? Else I'll spend 20 mins just choosing some pages to read. I am trying to make use of the strengths of the members of ATS! How many lone sleepless thinkers are out there still today, doing all their 'research' by themselves?!

I was just interested in seeing all the comments and couldn't find it for some reason. Thanks.

I still can't believe how little there is in either thread. Petraeus is on it though
Hell it wouldn't surprise me if he was in on it.

I figured AIPAC & MOSSAD would take offense to this unless this is another Israeli false-flag to cover up who is really doing the mind-control in Congress. Trojan horse, smoke and mirrors, cloak and dagger. "Hey back off McCain we don't have anymore room in here! This is our mind! We got inside his head first!"

It's really much more serious than McChrystal cracking jokes about the President or Vice President, which is admittedly insubordinate. But this is arguably illegal:

It’s a potentially serious offense. If Caldwell did order the operation, it could violate a decades-old law called the Smith-Mundt Act, which forbids the government from targeting propaganda at American citizens. Caldwell’s boss, Gen. David Petraeus, announced on Thursday that he’ll investigate the “facts and circumstances” of a potentially improper use of information operations.

So, curious about the Smith-Mundt Act, I delved a bit more and what do you know, Washington thinks it's out-dated and wants to revise it.

On July 13, 2010, U.S. Congressmen Mac Thornberry (TX-13) and Adam Smith (D-WA), members of the House Intelligence and Armed Services Committees, introduced "The Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2010" (H.R. 5729), a bipartisan bill to revise the outdated restriction that interferes with U.S. diplomatic and military efforts.

It is time we revisit the existing restrictions in the Smith-Mundt Act and their implications on America's engagement with the world. We need a more effective, agile, and transparent communication and engagement programs, call them "public diplomacy programs" if you want, in an environment where the Internet, satellite communications, 24/7 news, and cheap international travel enable and foster dynamic diasporas that may or may not be based one's ethnicity, language, or passport. The Smith-Mundt Modernization Act by Reps. Thornberry and Smith will help move us in that direction.

So the story is most certainly about psy ops being run on members of Congress but the sub text seems to be about making it easier to run one on everyone else. And just to add to the curiosity, one of the co-sponsors of the bill is Gabrielle Giffords.

I'm in a rabbit hole but I don't know yet where it's taking me.

The military PSYOP organizations do not target US Citizens.

True. That is a version of PSYOP. Instead of "Don't shoot or we'll bomb you", they're saying, "Buy Pepsi."

I resist the generalizations embedded in the story....

Whenever discussing what the Army, Pentagon, or DoD is up to... including this... we must acknowledge distinctly that policy and practice is directed from within the corporate cartel known as the Military Industrial Complex.

While I attribute the ability to stop this atrocious and reprehensible practice to the Army (or whatever military service) I recognize that the impetus, motivation, and planning of it is sourced 'outside' what we consider the "military" in terms of the men and women who swore an oath to serve this country and protect her people.

I agree.

I think most people attribute the actions of congressmen as succumbing to peer pressure or going along to get along.

I have heard alot about blackmail and the psyops story could be a cover for the real coersion. I wasn't on the internet in 1995, has there ever been much talk about the Franklin Savings/ money laundering/ child prostitution scandal. This first link i saw in 2006 says the documentary was listed in the tv quide, bought by someone and preempted in the week it was to be shown. It has a creepy essence of text written in blood oozing from a tombstone for the introduction.

2004 franklin scandal

The link below has the same documentary with a new opening text and a style of despair rather than terror.

The documentary says all of the congress were blackmailable by association with child prostitution or drugs. No one went to prison for a felony, except the man who sang the national anthem at two Republican National Conventions.

They can not contain the corruption spewing from the fake war on terrorism. Using military operations to continue an illegal war, when will America stop the madness?

I think it continues and gets more out of control because the majority of Americans are "too busy" with their lives to notice or care what goes on in our government. A few more figure others will fix it.

I am constantly amazed at the lack of outrage people have over these things. I am even more amazed how many there are that will never even know this (and things like this) existed.

We need more people to pay attention if we ever expect any kind of improvement IMO.

Rolling Stone (gathering moss) is likely an Illuminati controlled magazine being used to discredit General Caldwell in an attempt to oust him as he is a Christian who probably is not going along with the NWO agenda. His wife is also an ordained Methodist minister. They are grooming their top NWO leadership by culling certain generals methinks.

Some Bluto in the Army figured that psy-ops would be so much sneakier than anthrax. Hey, it's evolution in action.

The military industrial complex is out of control in America. It is going to be our downfall. They have too much power and influence. Eisenhower warned us about this very thing way back in 1961 as he was leaving office, fast foward to now and you can see how we ended up where we are today.

A Vital element in keeping the peace is our military establishment. Our arms must be mighty, ready for instant action, so that no potential aggressor may be tempted to risk his own destruction.

Our military organization today bears little relation to that known by any of my predecessors in peacetime, or indeed by the fighting men of World War II or Korea.

Until the latest of our world conflicts, the United States had no armaments industry. American makers of plowshares could, with time and as required, make swords as well. But now we can no longer risk emergency improvisation of national defense; we have been compelled to create a permanent armaments industry of vast proportions. Added to this, three and a half million men and women are directly engaged in the defense establishment. We annually spend on military security more than the net income of all United States corporations.

This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence -- economic, political, even spiritual -- is felt in every city, every State house, every office of the Federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.
This was one of the greatest speeches I have every heard from a President of the US.

Eisenhower helped to polish off one military industrial complex in WW2. He knew exactly what he was talking about.

McChrystal never made any negative comments himself. The comments were from his staff.

In this case, I fail to see what the issue is. There is a good write up of it here:

I tend to agree with that write up more than the article in RS. Seems to me that there would be more people coming out to support the article now that it has been released. Don't bother telling me that they are being silenced or threatened. There are all kinds of methods for people to come forward without revealing who they are if they wanted to support these claims.

If it was a real order, than it was an illegal order. An illegal order does not have to be followed.
