Betcha didn’t realize I’m all knowing and all seeing? Well, I am, see. So I’m told anyway. Apparently, some friends of mine were having a debate about whether water drains clockwise or anti-clockwise depending on if you are in the northern or southern hemisphere (it doesn’t). One friend insisted it had nothing to do with which hemisphere you’re in, but was totally dependent on the design of the sink and drain. He was asked how he knew, and he said “(Skeptico) told me”. That apparently ended the debate. Wow, I never know I had such power! (All I have to do now is get them to stop believing in astrology. Oh well, one thing at a time.)
Anyway, this same friend was being bugged by some other people who apparently think the government is using secret Russian mind-control technology on us, or something. He gave me a printout of New world Order and ELF Psychotronic Tyranny and asked me what I think. Some samples:
...WE MUST CHANGE OUR NATIONAL INSTITUTIONS if we are to change our international relations. ... THE UNITED STATES IS PREPARING TO MAKE AVAILABLE OUR BASES AND FACILITIES FOR MULTI-NATION TRAINING AND FIELD EXERCISES. One such base, with facilities is Fort Dix, N.J."
President Bill Clinton has continued and expanded George Bush's surrender-America policy. As a result, increasing numbers of foreign troops, including Russian Spetsnaz, along with vast amounts of foreign military equipment are now entering the United States to serve as a U.N. OCCUPATION force.
On May 3, 1994, President Clinton signed an Executive Order Presidential Decision Directive (originally numbered PPD-13, later changed to PPD-25) that places U.S. troops under U.N. command and abolished the law limiting the number of U.S. troops that can be committed to the U.N. without approval of Congress.
PPD-25 also created special funding for U.N. peacekeeping and occupation forces, that permits an UNLIMITED drain upon the U.S. Treasury. American Tax payers will be forced to pay any amount demanded by the U.N. occupation forces.
Acting under U.N. occupation orders, U.S. military and national guard forces are now being trained to attack civilians in this country. In Alaska, contingents of Russian military OCCUPATION FORCES are reported to have already landed. State and Federal forces, have begun house-to-house surveys, looking for gun collectors and checking attitudes for possible patriotic resistance.
Marines were asked to give their attitudes on the treason statement: "I am a United Nations fighting person. I serve in the forces which maintain world peace and EVERY Nation's way of life. I am prepared to give my life in their service." The last item on the survey asked the Marines' attitude about the statement: "I WOULD FIRE UPON U.S. CITIZENS, WHO REFUSED OR RESIST CONFISCATION OF FIREARMS BANNED BY THE U.S. GOVERNMENT."
As more Russian and United Nations occupation troops enter the United States, the White House is expecting strong resistance from loyal Americans. To QUIETLY suppress these patriotic fighters, President Clinton is getting help from the old Soviet KGB.
Moscow is now supplying Clinton and Attorney General Janet Reno with a whole new class of weapons, that will be specifically TARGETED AGAINST AMERICAN CIVILIANS.
…and on and on for another 20 pages.
In summary, I think they’re saying the New World Order (some kind of UN world government headed up by the Russians and the US) troops have invaded the US, and US troops are being trained to fight against US citizens but the government is using remote mind control technology to prevent the US population from finding out about this. Psychic powers are being employed too, as is some kind of giant laser on the space shuttle for “mind zapping”. People are being tricked into thinking they were abducted by aliens, so they won’t realize they have really been hit by the government’s mind-zapping laser beams. (Hey, alien abductions aren’t real – told you!) And all this was predicted in Revelations. Oh and yes, all this happened during Clinton’s presidency, 11 years ago.
I think that’s it.
- There are a lot of claims about what the government is doing, but little (read zero) evidence to back it up. Where are the references? (Ah yes, the mind control ensures there is no evidence – cunning! But then how do we know about it at all?)
- It’s dated 1994 (the printout is – and as far as I can see the printout is identical to the link). That's a year before Windows 95! So why is there no evidence of this UN world army eleven years later (when we need it!)?
- What is it with this superior Soviet technology? Have you ever driven a Russian car, watched a Russian TV or used a Russian computer? Me neither.
- If they have this mind control stuff (this was eleven years ago, remember) why aren't they using it in Fallujah now?
- Why so much written in ALL CAPITALS as though WRITING IN ALL CAPITALS MAKES IT TRUE?
- If the government really is controlling our minds the way this article says, how come we are able to read about it so easily? The government can control everything with this sinister new technology but can’t shut down this one puny website that gives away all the secrets? If mind control is real, surely we wouldn’t know about it?
What the hell, I think I’ll just refer to John Baez’ Crackpot Index. The following are especially relevant:
2) 1 point for every statement that is widely agreed on to be false.
3) 2 points for every statement that is clearly vacuous.
4) 3 points for every statement that is logically inconsistent.
7) 5 points for each word in all capital letters
Number seven’s a killer – that alone puts the score at over 8,000 by my rough count. Baez doesn’t say what score you have to achieve to qualify as a crackpot, but I think I can safely say the guy who wrote this is...
Hey, perhaps these people need to make themselves one of these thought screen helmets from Stop Alien Abductions (“it’s a tested device that works”). It has full assembly instructions (“Apply tape to any areas that need reinforcement. Remember, you will sleep with the hat on”), and instructions for use (“One abductee reported that when she wasn't wearing the helmet, the aliens gave her a telepathic command when they were about to take her to not put on (sic) the helmet. The only way to stop such alien telepathic commands is to wear the helmet as much as possible”), and testimonials (“Since trying Michael Menkin's Helmet, I have not been bothered by alien mind control. Now my thoughts are my own. I have achieved meaningful work and am contributing to society. My life is better than ever before. Thank you Michael for the work you are doing to save all humanity”).
Who could argue with that?
